FOTD: Pink Lips Look using Pink Nouveau by M.A.C

Hello peeps!

Happy friday! I just got back from Cameron Highlands and I have to say it was the break I needed from my "busy" life and work. I went there with my colleagues and we did all the must-do activities like strawberry picking and tea plantation visit. Here are some pictures :

Here's where we stayed. It is called Bintang Falim, a bungalow with 5 rooms and the entrance looks like a horror movie setting, but after we reached the house, the view blew me away. Roses, hydrangeas and colorful flowers bloom all around and the fresh cool air was just so refreshing.

I absolutely love hydrangeas and their exotic skyblue color. They grow effortlessly in Cameron Highlands. 

We went to Boh Plantation to savor some warm scones with strawberry jam and butter. Mmmmmm. However, I have to admit, I am not a scone person. I'd prefer a warm brownie ala mode anytime of the day.

I bought these flowers for 10 ringgit. So friggin cheap and they brought me so much joy. I purposely chose the coral colored roses because I think this color is uncommon and contrast against the green ping pong chrysanthemum.

By the way, I enjoyed my time in the highlands sipping tea and breathing cool air. It makes me miss my old time in Davis during fall, which is a perfect temperature for me. Ahhh, such reminiscence. 

By the way, I am done rambling. Here's the FOTD to share with you.

I was looking for a pop lipstick color and lookie what I found! 

Pink Nouveau by M.A.C

I think this pink lipstick was made to create the Barbie look, but you can always tone it down by adding some foundation to "nudify" it. Haha I just created a word.

Above: Pink Nouveau by MAC RM65. If I have to describe it, I'd say it is almost a flourescent ,lighter version of hot pink with a hint of purplish undertones.

Forgive my crappy camera (again). Here's Pink Nouveau on me

With flash

Enjoy the "artistic" camera shot.

Like the color?

This color can be toned down with a bright lipgloss or toned down with some foundation, depending on your mood. It's not going to be my everyday lipstick but on the days when I am wearing monotones or need a pop factor, I'd surely spot this lippy on.

What's your favorite pink color? Please share with me : D

My first Giveaway: Skin 11 FREE 2-hour Facial worth RM138

Hello peeps!

Today I have a special gift to share with you all. I have a free facial worth RM138 to give away to a lucky reader. This giveaway is open to those who live in Klang Valley, as this facial can be redeemed at Skin 11 in I0I Boulevard Puchong: so if this is accessible to you, by all means, please enter this giveaway as I am looking forward to pass on the awesome pampering 2 hour facial to you!

I have been a customer for Skin11 for 6 months now and I have to say whenever I needed to relax, the spa gives me the ultimate pampering that I needed to melt my stress away. I go once a month and I pay around RM138 for a session because I bought a package of 6 sessions but this one is FREE for you.

I usually fell asleep in the midst of the facial and the Zen feeling of the spa really soothes me. Also because I am really lazy  busy to extract my own whitehead and blackhead, it is nice to have someone do it for me.

Anyway, the stuff they use is super top-secret and can't be purchased elsewhere. The products smell so yummy too, fruity and aromatic like a pineapple scrub, lavender oil and coconut mask. Also, they do skin analysis before and after the facial to see your collagen, moisture and melanin level. It's kind of high-tech. So cool, right?

After the facial, expect to see some redness (due to extraction) but the next day you'll see some improvement almost like a glowing complexion. That is exactly why I renewed my package and therefore got this FREE trial for y'all.

So here's what you have to do to enter:

1) Be a follower of this blog (if you have not already)
2) Just leave a comment as simple as:

"I'd love a free facial" or something along this line.

The dateline is by 14 May 2011 so don't wait any longer, eh. Get those whiteheads out and let your skin glow.

Oh for your convenience, here's the address of the outlet:

Ok peeps, don't wait any longer. Comment "I'd love a free facial" below.
