Update: US Haul + Upcoming Tutorial

*laughs nervously*
My box came?


Read on for details.

This haul is probably not very interesting to most of you. I understand that not many Asians/Malaysians are into tanning but it's sort of my current obsession.

What I bought this time:
  • Lime'n da Coconut Tan Defining Formula (for outdoor and indoor tanning -- just in time for my Cherating trip this weekend!)
  • Banana Boat Summer Color Self-tanning Lotion
  • Bain de Soleil Mega Tan Sunscreen Lotion with Self-tanner
  • Ben Nye Bronzing Body Tint
  • Graftobian Hi-def Glamour Creme Foundation in Enchantress
  • Graftobian HD Creme Corrector in Soft Orange
  • Ben Nye Creme Shadow in Medium Brown (for contouring)
  • OCC Lip Tar in Conquest
  • Italian Badger Round Crease Brush from Crown Brushes
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash
  • Stila #9 Brush
  • Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Cream Eyeliner Trio for Green Eyes
  • Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer in Sand
  • ecoTools Bamboo Bronzer Brush
  • Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush in #8 PDA
  • Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Max
  • St. Ives Timeless Skin Daily Microdermabrasion Scrub
  • Ben Nye Banana Visage Luxury Powder
  • Wisdom of the Elders by Peter Knudtson and David Suzuki (book -- not shown)

Grace truly spoils me. She included HEAPS of goodies in my box. Love you lots!! *hugs*

I also did a little swap with the lovely B of Clumps of Mascara and she got me two mascaras that she thought I should try -- Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume and Almay Intense i-Color. Btw, she's having a giveaway on her blog that has just turned 3!

I apologize for the lack of tutorials. My weird class schedule and no-blogging weekends prohibited me from wearing much makeup what more film tutorials. I did manage to get one done and it's for the Summer Tutorials series. This look was inspired by Malaysia's National Park, Taman Negara. I'm in the process of editing the video. Bear with me!

Did you purchase these items or were they sent to you in a swap? If these items were purchased, may I know where from? I've been looking to buy Crown and Confidential brushes and I don't know where to find them!

you got a lot of stuff. I just got those revlon lashes in a swag bag form this sassy city chicks event I went to last thurs. I haven't tried them yet though

Connie De Alwis said...

Sarah: I'm quite eager to try it too as I've heard that it works on Asian lashes. Awh, thank you. I do hope you'll comment more often! I'd love to hear your feedback on my posts :) Thanks for your support

ning: Hehe. I love those lashes too. My first time wearing them and they totally made the look

Connie De Alwis said...

Kimberly: They're all from a swap. My swap buddy aka partner in crime helps me buy stuff from the US or I have items shipped to her address then she sends them to me. I do the same for her. Are you from Malaysia? before I had a swap buddy I purchased all my US products from sgdrugstore on

Ee Von: I didn't jump but my heart was beating very fast! I get awfully excited every time I get a package. hehe. Thanks, girl :)

Connie De Alwis said...

Fifi: oh yay! a tanning buddy! :D I'll definitely be doing a post on my tanning routine

Hershley's: Nope, all the items I bought through my swap buddy. She compiles all my purchases for a few months and when we're both done shopping, we swap.

Kim: Revlon lashes are not too bad. I've tried a few pairs of them before. they're quite comfortable and they look natural

Grace Chan said...

OH the falsies look soo nice on you! i bought 3 pairs for myself but I haven't tried them yet : )

btw i LOVE the look

Connie De Alwis said...

Grace Chan: I'm wearing I Nuovi lashes in the look. I like them a lot but they're quite dramatic!

Nikki: Yes! I bought the hi-def foundation thanks to your review :p It took me forever to figure out what shade I would be and luckily I got quite a good match

Fuz: Hehe. Accumulated over the months! Thanks :D
