The Month of MAY has always been my favorite month. Because its my Birthday Month. May has always make me feel extra special because I would get extra discounts on certain items, certain places, free tickets for movies and extra benefit and, if I got lucky, might get treated like a Princess or Madame.. If I got lucky… Well, that’s not the entire point.
Because its my birthday month, I decided to give present to myself (because I am not been treated as a Princess or Madame in real life, sob sob) as now I am very addicted and dedicated to makeup. SEPHORA was having a Private Sale with discount up to 20% (there goes my money) for all retail items specifically for their GOLD and BLACK members from 3rd until 7th May. The sale for GOLD members commenced from 3rd May and BLACK members was from 4th May. Because of Birthday Month, I also was able to redeemed my Birthday Gift from Sephora, to get Brow service at Benefit Brow Counter (which I haven’t redeem yet) and get double of shopping point for any items purchased plus extra discount up to MYR30. Unfortunately, I was unable to utilized both Private Sale code and to redeem my birthday code at the same time. So I decided to divide my purchases and here is my Birthday Haul… 🙂
- Kat Von D – Lock It Foundation in shade Medium 53 Warm: MYR179
I have been eyeing for this foundation since I saw Kat Von D Beauty channel on Youtube. Through the video, I was totally amazed with this foundation performance as it claimed to be able to cover tattoos. With 20 available shades, OMG that is a huge range of shades. I am glad that shade Medium 53 Warm suits my skin tone perfectly. This shade is the most matching shade to the perfection towards my skin tone. For me, finding the right foundation that is able to provide full coverage, that matches with my skin tone and yet is wearable for long wearing is one of my dreams. I definitely will search high and low for this and since that the rumors on this foundation sounds too good to be true, lets check this foundation out in our Malaysian’s humid weather.
- Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade Double Dare: MYR99
Earlier I purchased the Better Together Kit (KVD x Too Faced campaign) and received the deluxe size Everlasting liquid lipstick in shade XO. I was quite impressed with the product performance but XO shade is not my everyday wear shade. So I decided to purchase Double Dare shade instead in order for me to be able to wear it everyday and make a comparative review on this range. So far I am loving Double Dare shade on me.
- Zoeva – Cocoa Blend Palette : MYR134
My love towards Zoeva eyeshadows palette continues with Cocoa Blend Palette. I totally love the combination colours in this palette that I believe would suits me better as compared to the Zoeva Rose Golden Palette. So far I have created some eye looks from this palette and I totally adore the colors intensity. I am still in the midst of creating more looks and see the versatility of this palette. This palette has been one of my favorite palette so far.
- Urban Decay – Full Spectrum Eye Palette: MYR265
When looking for the eye palette with huge range of colors, lets go big. So I decided to lavish myself with splashes of rainbow hues with this palette. With 21 shades in total, I really feel that this palette is a great deal (except that the price is v expensive!) I haven’t got a chance to swatch all the shades and try out this palette yet just because, I love pretty and colorful things so I don’t dare to tarnish this palette with my filthy hands just yet. I still have a soft spot for this one but, review must go on. Do let me know if you are interested to know more about this palette and I will do a detail review on this one.
- Beauty Blender Original with Mini Solid Cleanser Kit : MYR115
Muahahahaha… I am a noob and a newbie when comes to Beauty Blender. I know I know you must have thought “ek eleh… now only you wanna buy this?” To be honest, I am never a fan with makeup sponges. I tried few times (with cheap version of course) and I feel that it took me 100 years just to complete my foundation application. I seriously feel more tired applying foundation with sponges than brushes. After few deliberation and consideration, I finally decided to bring Beauty Blender into my makeup vanity and see if this product would change my perception towards makeup sponges. Owh, and of course I should buy its solid cleanser too right just to complete the entire range.
- Sephora Collection: Smokey Eye Brush Set: MYR92
I am in the midst of perfecting my smokey eye looks. Hence, I believe this brush set would be able to assist me to complete my smokey eye looks. Furthermore, the bristle design looks similar to KVD makeup brushes and if this brushes can perform well, why not opt for the cheaper version than the expensive one? Right?…
- Birthday Gift: Tartelette Set
As for the Birthday Gift, I received Tartelette set i.e. a combination of Lip paint in shade Birthday Suit and Amazonian Clay blusher in shade Paaarty. Both are in deluxe sizes. Lip Paint by Tarte are one of the most raved product. I have one in shade ROSE and so far I am loving this nude pink shade for my everyday wear. As for the amazonian clay blusher, this blush has always been one of my absolute favorite. I almost finish mine in shade Peaceful (coral shade) and currently is addicted to shade Exposed (nude deep pink).
Do let me know in the comment section down below which product that you would like me to review first? Owh, and I do have something exciting coming hopefully by end of this week. Once everything fall into place, I will share with you guys more. BTW, have you sign up as a Sephora members yet? Until we meet again in my next post. XOXO
