Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Hello again! Today I am going to blog about my recent foundation find.
everyone knows about this foundation already but it really is a great product not to rave about. I actually found this foundation on accident when I was at macy's one day dress shopping. I was about to leave the store when I passed by the estee lauder counter and saw that they were offering a 10day free supply of their double wear foundation. I immediately asked to get color matched and got the free 10day supply! I was never big on foundation but recently I noticed some discoloration happening in my face like dark circles etc so I thought maybe I should start using foundation sometimes. I don't use this all the
time, mostly just when I go out with friends or to a company meeting. here are some photos of the 10day sample

as you can see its very small, but it really does last 10days, well I've used it about 4 times already and still have a lot left. it really does not take a lot of this product to cover your face either. just a small pea size amount can do the job nicely! I am very happy with this foundation and the color. it matches my skin color so perfectly, my color is 5w1 Bronze. I think once I run out I will be investing and buying the full bottle for 34 dollars. it's worth it since
1. it matches my skin color perfectly
2. when applied it gives full coverage
3. it leaves a nice natural look as if you aren't wearing anything at all.
just love this so much, I don't think any other foundation can top this even though I really haven't tried many especially from high end brands like this once.
well thats all on my foundation rant!

Nyx Trio Palettes!

Hello everyone!
This will be my first post that is makeup related!

Lets wish that it will not be the last!
ok I have two trio eyeshadow palettes by NYX which I would like to review for you.
I got the first palette back in feb in little tokyo from a little shop called Maneki Neko.
it's in the shades of ts13 cherry/cool blue/hot pink

as you can see the colors are very vibrant and as vibrant as they look on the palette that is actually how pigmented they are once you wear it which I LOVE.
now on to the next palette. I bought this other palette last week during my outing with my friend vivian which I have posted before this entry. we went to the same shop Maneki Neko and we both purchased the same palette. I was originally going to get majolica majorca's brulee eyeshadow palette from an ebay store but I found very similar shades by nyx and the price was way less than majolica majorca. the only difference with this nyx trio palette is that it only comes with three shades vs majolica majorca's four shades, but I didn't really need the lighter shade majolica's has since I have a light eyeshadow at home already.
This palette is ts21 copper/rust/bronze

these colors are so gorgeous I just had to have them and again they are very pigmented, might be more pigmented than majolica majorca's, but I could be wrong. anywho it was much cheaper and I love the quality and the packaging is professional too. it comes with a little mirror at the top as you can see, and a double sided eyeshadow brush.
each trio palette cost me 6.99 which wasn't bad compared again to majolica majorca's 15.99 plus shipping @__@

Here I am wearing some, might not look as dark since my skin is tan :/

Next I will review a foundation worn above :D

Petite tokyo

So on Tue I went to Little Tokyo with my friend Vivian, I shot her in her new favorite spring floral dress! I love how she paired with her cardigan. doesn't she look adorable?

Vivian and I had previously gone to that store called Pop Killer, they have really cool vintage clothing, shoes and accessories. I almost got a hat but became broke after venturing to other stores and of course eating! LOL

me and vivian~
