2009 Halloween Collection from Meow

This cat is really purrfect, hehe......
They come out with new collection every now and then. They have new collections, then they keep them in endangered collection after sometimes :)

I ordered Meow's 2009 Halloween Collection early October and received the package two weeks later. The collections consist of Dance of Death and Friday the 13th! I also received three samples from Meow.
I just ordered sample size instead of full size. The problem is, Dance of Death only lasted til Oct 31, while Friday the 13th will still be obtained every Friday the 13th, got it?

Please enjoy the haul. I haven't got a chance to make swatch or play with them.

By the way, I organize my sample size pigments in a business card binder. An idea I read from Aromaleigh forum.

A week later, I decided to order Meow's foundation and face powder. I also added some colors from their new collection, Egyptian Treasures. The package hasn't arrived yet.

Something wrong with this FOTD?

I tried new technique to apply mineral make up foundation. It's a wet technique where you spritz on water to the brush then dip the brush to the base powder.
I use my home made facial spritz, the recipe was from Everyday Minerals forum.

For this look, I used these products:
The Face Shop Sun Screen
EGM facial primer
Pure Luxe base: Creamy Natural
Pure Luxe finishing powder: Translucent Matte

EGM Platinum blush: Zirconium gem color blush

The Body Shop: Soft Red

EGM eye primer
EGM Platinum color gem: smokey quartz gem eye color on lid
EGM: Red Berlina on crease
EGM liquid eye liner in caviar
Revlon 3D Extreme mascara in black

I didn't like the finishing I had. I think I put too much base, and the base color seemed too bright on me.
The eyeshadow didn't bring out the color. This is not the brown color I expected. Maybe I didn't apply enough pigment? Because if you see the pigment, the color is like chocolate milk color, I love it. But somehow, when it was on my lid, the color is ugly.
Also the blush..... Arrrghhh, it's not good on me...

I like how The Body Shop lipstick appear on my lips. It can cover the ugliness of my shadow color.

After I finished applying everything, my face looked weird, it has flaws with the make up. I don't know where I went wrong. Then, after let it sink for awhile, they blended and looked more natural (thank God!)

Aww look at those pores.....
Hey, looking at the last picture, it should be OK.

Well, I need more practice and experimenting so I will know which one is best for me.

The Body Shop Sale and its new lipsticks

I always check out what's new at The Body Shop.
When I went to Puri Mall after work yesterday, I saw their sale.
Thinking to buy new lipstick. Hey, they've got 3 for 2. You buy 2 lipsticks and you get 1 free lipstick.
So, I called my sister and asked whether she needed new lipstick. She said yes. The effort taken was to choose right color for her and for me is some new or different colors.

No. 14 - Pink Ginger, for my sister
No. 21 - Soft Red
No. 49 - Berry Shimmer
Total IDR 278,000
I love the texture of this lipstick. I had one from The Body Shop, but it's matte. When I have dry lips, it's difficult to apply on my lips.

Oh, I also bought nail buffer (IDr 30,000)

From top: No. 14 - Pink Ginger, No. 21 - Soft Red, No. 49 - Berry Shimmer

Body Souffle from Moea Spa

How can I miss this nice product?

I have been taking Tahitian Noni Juice regularly for my health, I have been using daily regimen for oily skin from TePoema range, and I need to have Moea Spa products.
To begin with, I bought Body Souffle, price IDR 188,000. I don't like greasy feeling after I apply some body lotion after shower. My Nivea UV Body Protection can't absorb right away.

Body Souffle has banana aroma and contain macadamia nut oil, noni seed oil, cocoa seed butter and shea butter. It's such an exotic smell.
It's lighter than Moea Body Butter.

You can buy Moea Spa products here for Indonesia market.
