Favourite Eye Shadow 2013

Maybelline Expert Wear Eye shadow Quad - Natural Smokes
It has everything I need for daily eye makeup and very handy to carry around. The matte light beige is very subtle to highlight inner corner and under brow bone. Two shimmery shades pose as eye shadow and that matte dark brown works perfectly to fill my brows and eye line. Yet the pigmentation is not the best and you might use a primer to enhance its colour payoff.
Revlon ColorStay 12 Hr Eye Shadow - 02 Coffee Bean
My ultimate favourite quad from drugstore! It has three mattes and a shimmery bronze. It is hard to find good matte eyeshadow from drugstore, but all the matte shades here are very pigmented. The eye shadow retains soft, buttery texture and looks beautiful on eyelids. I love using this quad in autumn or winter and it is perfect to match it with red lips <3 font="">

Inglot Freedom System Eye Shadow
I love inglot eye shadow! Excellent colour payoff and buttery texture. There are so many different colours and finishes to choose from. I am sure you will find something you like if you visit an inglot store. The price is fairly affordable compared to MAC, Gorgeous Makeup, Napoleon and other brands. All the staff I met from Inglot stores in Melbourne were very friendly, helpful and absolutely gorgeous! Good CS is always a bonus :)!
(I wont recommend Sydney Bondi branch though. There is not any customer service provided besides two staff members stood there and stared at you. pfff)

The Balm Shady Lady Vol.2
I got this palette from an online sale and it only cost around 20 bucks (quite a good price) ! I like the colour selection which offers enough flexibility but also practicality. This palette has quite a few neutral shades and my favourite is Insane Jane (a silvery taupe)! Mischiveous Melissa, Makeout Mary and Bossy Bobbi are beautiful as well. However, the eye shadow is slightly powdery and creates quite some fallout. Generally the pigmentation is acceptable. Particular shades including Bossy Bobbi and Feisty Felicia need to be assisted with a primer and layered up .

My Favourite Nail Care Products

  I have been wearing nail polishes (on and off) since kindergarten. As a chipmunk, obviously I knew nothing about nail care. Didn't wear any base coat. Kept the nail vanish on for longer than a week and let it chip. 
  Since I started watching youtube videos, I also experiments more different products and realized how important a base coat is! Today I would like to share my favourite nail care products.

* Deborah Lippmann Base Coat
Repurchase? Maybe
  I love Deborah Lippmann. Although it is quite pricey, I like the fact that D.L products are gluten free, formaldehyde free and toluene free. It provides a smooth canvas and prevents stains. But Nail Tek one is an even better one.

* Nail Tek Foundation II ( ~USD$5 from Ebay)
Repurchase? Yes
  It is the best base coat I have tried and I do prefer it over OPI envy base coat! Not only it helps to fill every single tiny ridge on my nails, but more importantly, it is very effective in preventing your nail polish staining your nails. I love red nail polishes but they always staine my nails. Since I discovered this base coat, it is no longer a worry ;)

* Etude House Help My Finger UV Top Coat (HKD$40)
Repurchase? I already got a few back ups!
  I am currently in HongKong. When I stumbled across the Etude House store, I remembered Mszjackiechu recommended this Top coat. It is such a great top coat!! It is fast drying and glossy, working equivalently well as the Deborah Lippmann. For sure, Etude House is so much more affordable than the Deborah Lippmann. 
[ I also tried Sally Hansen MegaShine before. Its consistence is so much thicker and sometimes it even moved the color nail polish. It also has much longer drying time.]

*Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter (AUD$16.5)
Repurchase? Yes, but my current one lasts forever.
  Lush cuticle butter is fabulous! Its creamy texture leaves my cuticle so moisturized and nourished. The lemon scent is so heavenly as well. It comes in 50g and gonna lasts for ages. I shared half of mine to mum and she loves it ;)
[ I tried Burt's Bees cuticle cream before but it was too waxy for my liking. ] 

Is there any nail care product you love? Would love to hear from you girls :)
