Review - NARS Velvet Lip Pencil

Bought THREE of these Velvet Lip Pencil too from Bangkok.
Super super GOOD 2-in-1 lip pencil & lipstick combo .. 
true to its name, the texture is super velvety and one of the nicest lip pencil i've ever used ... glides on super easily and gives a soft matte finish ... u can either leave it like that for a beautiful matte look or dab on a lil bit of gloss to give the color a punch of shine :)

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! .. but the nearest you can get this product is from Bangkok and mind you they are not cheap .. 

NARS Eyeshadow in Night Breed & THE Multiple

went all crazy for NARS when i was in Bangkok last week .... bought the eyeshadow, the blush stick and few lipsticks. excellent product.

i just bought one eyeshadow - shimmery Black .. coz i hv too many eyeshadows already but i couldnt resist the black color so i decided to just get ONE and only ONE hehehe ... but i gotta tell you that the color payoff is great and i wont go out for a makeup job without this :)

got another THREE multi purpose blush stick .. ORGASM (their best seller), South Beach & Copacabana.
fantactic for a quick sheer and natural look .. can be applied on the cheek, eye and lips.
Copacabana is a good highlighter and South Beach & Orgasm are both as good to be used as blusher or lip stain. 
Pros : Nice packaging, nice colors
Cons : Quite pricey

L'oreal Super Liner & Instant Impact Felt Liner

am having an addiction on liquid liners lately ... hehe yea i am quite fickle minded .. i used to love gel liner and i switched to cake liner and i am now liking liquid liner .. but that doesnt mean i dont use the other 2 anymore coz i still do, depending on situation :)

i simply like liquid liner for the fact that its easy to use and save a lot of my time when i do makeup for clients...  

these 2 liners that i bought from Bangkok are great and wont cost you much (yes i do use drugstore stuffs sometimes) .. i got both for less than RM30 each :)
2 coats of these liners give a better color payoff and last all day ..
(i cant find the pic of the other liner i bought but the packaging is black in color with a gold color cover)
