Bangkok Haul: Drugstore Makeup

Hey guys!

First of all I'd like to apologize for being MIA so frequently these few months. A lot has been happening for my family. But I felt like I couldn't completely abandon my blog so I'm here with a new part of my Bangkok haul :D

I love shopping in drugstores at Bangkok because they've always got cheap offers and good quality items. All my drugstore purchases this time are all from Boots, my family and I love shopping in Boots.

The first thing I got was...
Maybelline's Falsies Mascara!!
I've heard alot of good reviews about this mascara before and one of my girlfriends told me to give it a go (she also mentioned the Maybelline has the best mascaras). I've never tried Maybelline's mascaras, so this would be my very first. I've already started using it, and I LOVE it! I find that there's no need to apply false lashes anymore with this Falsies mascara :P
Have you guys tried any Maybelline Mascaras before? Which one and how do you like it? I'm thinking of purchasing another Maybelline mascara because this one really impressed me, which one should I try next?...hmmm...
The curved brush is coooool :P

Next item I purchased was...
17 Liquid Liner in Golden Brown
Last year I was crazy over Silver and Golden eye-liner (still am actually :P) so I went on a hunt for a good one to purchase. I was so excited when I found different colored liquid eyeliners at Boots! I was torn between the Silver and the Gold colored one but in the end I went for GOLD :)

It's actually darker than my swatch over here (I'm not very good at swatches as you can see :p) but overall I'm quite happy with it. It would be perfect if it was a little bit lighter.
Last item...
Maybelline's Impact Express Smooth Felt Liner

I needed a new felt liner as my 17 eye's one dried out in such a quick time! (The 17 felt tip eye liner was such a waste of money, regretted buying it :/) I've used this a couple of times and overall, this is pretty average. I like how it's very black and slides on well but I've got a problem opening the cap, it's so DARN HARD TO OPEN it!! Smears pretty easily too :/ But it's definitely better than the 17 eyes one :)


That's all I have for today's BANGKOK HAUL section :P
Hope you enjoyed it!

Before I sign off, just wanted to wish everyone an early HAPPY EASTER :)
This morning, Mom, my older sister and I painted egg shells (we've been consuming a lot of eggs over the last few weeks! Mom's concerned and surprised about the number of eggs we gobble down :P) There's a little surprise in each egg, let you know what's in them in the next post :) Hmm, maybe I should do an Easter Day post? :)

Until then, have a wonderful week!!

Bangkok Haul: Etude House

Hiya readers! :)
I'm back with a new part of my Bangkok Haul, I'm going to show you the items I purchased from Etude House. I'm a very very very HUGE fan of Etude House, I've been spending alot on Etude House items this year, it's high time for me to stop shopping there :P But every time I spot that super adorable, full-of-pink Etude House store, I just can't resist the cuteness, I end up returning home with a pink plastic bag full of Etude House products :P

I bought two of their Touch Touch Shadow Liners, a Model Face Color (blush/highlighter) and a couple of masks for 120 baht each, it was a total fail for the masks because I found that I could buy 10 masks here in my country for the price I bought for 2 =="
These cute Touch Touch Shadow Liners were on sale, so I took the opportunity to try them out. You can use them as cream eye shadows or as gel liner. I use the brown one (on the left) which is called Mocha Touch as a gel liner and for the creamy color (on the right) called Vanilla Touch, I use as a cream eye shadow. I'm pretty happy with the quality and the color :)

The second item I got was a Model Face Color which can be used as a highlighter or blush, this was on sale too. It's actually lavender but looking at it, it looks more toward the light pink tones. I have yet to try this out.
A swatch of the Model Face Color, its pretty bright and it looks matte. It doesn't have any hint of shimmer or anything.
I was actually surprised with myself that I didn't get as much products than I usually do but I think the reason is because there weren't much items on sale than in my country. I was being adventurous, hoping to try out some of the products I've never tried before but most of the products were pretty pricey for me to try out.

Let me know if you've tried out any Etude House products and if you have, which is your favorite and which product would you highly recommend? :)

The Loft Haul

Hey guys!
I'm back with another part of my Bangkok Haul (which I started earlier this year). For those of you who are wondering, I put my blog challenge on hold for awhile (don't worry, I shall resume soon).
Today I'll be showing you the items I purchased from the Loft at Bangkok. This was my first time visiting the Loft which is located at Siam Discovery, the Loft sells all kinds of things! You're bound to find many cute items (not too expensive items) at the Loft, I recommend visiting the Loft if you plan to visit Bangkok.

My mom found these adorable earrings at the accessories column, it's hard to come by such adorable earrings like these anywhere in my country so we immediately grabbed them.

Mom said this Ribbon and Pearl dangling earrings would suit me, aren't they pretty? I shall wear them, take a picture, and post it on my blog in the near future ;)

The other pair of earrings I purchased were this awesome Coke earrings! What a great idea to make Coke earrings :P I think it's colorful and vintage, can't wait to put them on when I go out.
There were so many earrings but these 2 caught my eye the most! If you like them, be sure to keep an out for them when you're at the Loft ;D
That's all for my the Loft haul post! I shall post my next blog challenge and the other part of the Bangkok haul soon :D
Have a wonderful week!

TAGGED: 11 Things

I'm tagged :D

By the lovely writer of Mikkimash :D It's been quite a while since I got tagged so I'm really delighted to be tagged once again. I enjoy doing tags and tagging people, it's one of the fun games blogging can provide :D

The rules for this tag are just a tiny bit different, here are the rules:

* Post 11 random facts about yourself

* Answer the 11 questions the tagger asked

* Tag 11 other bloggers and create (11) questions for them to answer

* Inform those that you have tagged them


So now that I read the rules, let's get started :)

11 Random Facts ABOUT ME:

  • I turn into a greedy pig whenever there's food around.
  • I build castles in the air when I'm at school.
  • I'm awkward when it comes to socializing. In simpler words, I am plain socially awkward.
  • I start writing poems and song lyrics after listening to a series of Taylor Swift songs.
  • I can shed a tear just by listening to a sad lullaby.
  • I tend to mess up my hair while studying.
  • I am currently tackling the art of cursive writing.
  • I like tall boys.
  • I love caramelized onions on toast, and I'm craving for one right now :O
  • I like hiding under the sheets when I'm watching YouTube videos.
  • I'd wake up from my sleep the next morning in an awkward position, I move alot in my sleep :P

I'm done with 11 Facts about me! Now to the part I've been waiting for, QUESTION TIME :D I'll try my best to answer the questions Mikkimash has set for me...

1. If a stranger drops $50 on the floor, will you return the $ or will you keep it?
(if answer is YES, what will you use the $50 for?)

ans: If I can't identify the owner, FINDERS KEEPERS >:) I would use the money to buy me some good sketching pencils and a few necklaces.

2. Your having a shopping spree day with your bestie, which store will you visit FIRST & why?

ans: I'd visit Etude House first! I love Etude House products and I enjoy checking back to see if there's any item on sale or any new products. I could also recommend a few good products to my bestie to try out :)

3. When shopping with your bestie (prepared for a 10+ hour shopping experience) what kind of shoes will you wear & why?

ans: I'd choose sneakers because they're the most convenient for long walks. They're super comfy and stylish too :)

4. Your bestie has her hair down and curled today, she's looking stunning, will you deliberately spend more time on appearance if she does? (honesty is key =P)

ans: I would, but honestly, I don't like taking too much time on my appearance. I'm already satisfied with my casual and neat look.

5. After shopping for 5 hours, you've realised you've spent a little too much over your budget, however you are in desperate need for a new concealer, which brand will you go for and how much is it?

ans: I'd go with a drugstore brand, it's cheaper and the quality ain't too bad. I'd go with Silky Girl's Perfect Cover Concealer stick.

6. FINALLY, a day off work/studies what are you looking forward to the most?

ans: Lying on the couch, watching YouTube videos (such as make-up tutorials and vlogs) or sketching in my journal (The book that one can only read when I die xD).

7. What is the weird-est habit you have and will you attempt to change it?

ans: My weirdest habit has to be picking off the skin off my fish meat. One of the things I HATE the most is fish skin. I think it's slimy and yucky. I only eat clean pieces of fish. I just can't stand gobbling down a piece of fish with the skin still attached. I don't attempt to change this particular habit because I just cannot stand eating fish skin! YUCK ><

8. The happiest thought that ran through your mind today and rate how happy it made you <3

ans: The happiest thought that ran through my mind today...the 1 week holiday (school break) that starts 2 days earlier for my school :) I can't wait to be free from studies and school :P

9. If happiness is a physical object which you can store in a jar, who will you give the jar of happiness to?

ans: I'd divide my happiness into several bottles and share them with old folks who are depressed. I hate to see senior citizens with frowns on their faces, my heart just sinks. I have great sympathy for old people :P

10. If you could strip something off to give to a poor person on the streets, what will it be?

ans: I'd give them some money enough to buy them a meal, and a Bible if I have one with me.

11. If you had ONE power, whether it's to: fly, invisibility, mind-control etc, what would you chose to have?

ans: This is tough, I'd like to go with all but the it is clearly stated to choose only ONE so...I'll go with mind-control. I feel like there are so many benefits if you can control one's mind. I can control people to do things my way, but I'd have to be careful or I'll end up being the evil villain :P

AND NOW....time to pass on this fun tag to 11 of my amazing followers :D

1) Vee from Vee's Randomness

2) What do you do to calm yourself down when you're anxious (for instance, before a test)

11) If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?

I'M DONE :D I'm really curious to see how the bloggers that I have tagged answer the questions :P it's random but I hope you guys enjoy doing this tag :) If you've stumbled upon my blog for the FIRST time, and would like to do this tag, feel free to and let me know if you did it on your blog :)
