I bought quite a few things from Eyeko- the 3 in 1 cream and the tinted cream. The delivery is really fast. I got my things in 2 days. It's absolutely brilliant. It gives that instant glow that you just love. I will post some photos later for your view. I bought all their fat balm shades too. I love tinted lipbalm but it's a bother to dip my hands in a pot so these babies makes life easier. It's everything in one - cute cute packaging, moisturizing and easy to use.

Oh well, enough ranting about the heat. I'm gonna show off my summer nails. It's really simple design but I like it. Just paint any colour you like then put on some cute stickers and then paint it with a clear colour. Wahlah...you got yourself some cute nails ^_^
I got the sticker from Claires. Price may varies. I got these for £1 coz it was on sale.

As promise, I am going to do a little post on the I.M.A.T.S London 2010. It has been great and I'm loving the creativity of the brilliant artist there.
It was held at Alexandra Palace in Wood Green, London. The view there is fantastic and the classic building add the serene charm to the scene.
I was really excited as I walk into the building. I can't wait to check out all the cool make up and accessories.
As soon as I entered, I can see a model being painted on the stage. He's a big dudeee...lol
It will take a while for the make up artist to finish painting him for sure. Hmm...very muscular!
The next booth after the stage of the oh big dude is the MAC booth.
MAC booth is painting a male model as well but he's not as big. He is being painted by a few make up artists. Looks like he's gonna be painted quick. I didn't go back so didn't get a shot of the finished work.
As I walkabout, there's so much more interesting models. I do think she's in the futuristic design costume painting. Hmm...Princess Leia's buns reinvent...lol
Next is my favourite booth coz I can see so many interesting charaters. Here's one of them, Cruela de vil. Ooo la la
Next, The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, my fav in I.M.A.T.S.
Next is the sexy kitten.
I think this model is probably doing a bird theme make up. What do you think?
There's another booth that's really interesting. Check out the heads. Don't they look realistic? Kinda creeps me out.
Remember Nutty Professor?? Here ya go...this is underneath Eddie Murphy.
Lastly, it's the cute gremlin.
Surprisingly, I didn't actually buy much. I got a bottle of Make Up Forever HD Microperfecting Primer in pink and some brushes. I'm loving the primer. When I use it, it gives me that happy healthy glow. I will try to do a review soon on that. At the moment, that's it for now ;)

I've been to IMATS, London Fashion Weekend, witness the new Prime Minister being elected.
IMATS has been very interesting. I must admit, I really don't know what to buy coz I still have a lot to learn about cosmetics. I will do a separate post on this as I have some interesting photos to go with the story ^^
As for London Fashion Weekend, I must say I am not too enthusiastic about it as most of the goods are pretty expensive. Well, most of the stuff there are designers so price tag that says £300 after discount is not surprising, right? Some of the things there are affordable but does not strike any interest for me.
Gordon Brown has finally been defeated after months of speculation that he probably won't make it on the next election. David Cameron has been on the newspaper almost daily before the final showdown. I must say the columns that screams image adverts sure works in his favor. Well, for me, as long as the PM do their job and ensure peace and stability, I'm all for it.
Ahchoo...sneezing madness on the way...summer...aiii

Rose & Geranium
A softening, moisturising balm infused with calming rose oil and with nourishing olive oil.
Winter is about to start. It's getting colder in the morning and I sure need to change my beauty routine a little. Today I'm just going to do a short review on lip balm.
I usually have a pot of vaseline in my bag for an instant moiturizer, be it the lips or just for the hands. Whoever invented these small pot, you are the best. It makes life so much more easier to carry these babies around.
Well, I kinda stop using vaseline now coz apparently it will dry out the lips more if constantly relying on it. Not all the vaseline tho', I still use the vaseline rose. This one is ok as it contains almond oil (balance out ;)) and it's tinted so it gives my lips a nice rosy tint.
Ok, let's move on to the Boots Original Beauty Formula. This is one of the best balm that I've use so far. It comes in such a cute and elegant packaging. It contains petroleum as well however there is a lot of other delicious combo of oil (grape seed, rose, almond, fruit...all the fab oil for beauty) that makes the product really good. I've been using it for two weeks and I can notice some changes. I use it on my lips and and my nails. Yes, my nails. I tend to leave a pot of balm on my desk so that I get to use is when needed. My nails has been quite dry and I have to leave it polish free for a while. I rub a little of the balm at the back of my hands too. After two weeks, I can say I am in love with this tiny pot. My lips felt moisture through out the day and there's a slight rose aroma which is not overpowering. My nails has the nice glow with no dry patch of skin on the edge and my hands noticeably smoother and no tightness. It's a definite that I will get my next pot when this is finish.
You can find these at Boots for £3.89
Ingredients: Petrolatum, Vitis vinifera (Grape) seed oil, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa) seed butter, Cera alba (Beewax), Olea europaea (Olive) fruit oil, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet almond) oil, Riinus communis (Castor) seed oil, Parfum (Fragrance), Citronellol, Geraniol, Rosa damascena flower oil, Pelargronium graveolens flower oil.

It has been for a while since I have my massage. I can sense the tension building up and knots on my shoulders. As I was browsing and bargain hunting in Derbenhams, I spotted the offer at Clarins counter. Although I have long since heard about how good Clarins is, never really get a chance to try it out as I have too many beauty products to begin with but a massage sounds like a good idea to kick off. It's £30.00 for the Aromatherapy treatment. Normal price will be £42.00 so I thought why not. I booked the earliest time on Saturday so that I can have the rest of the afternoon off to meet up a friend for lunch.
On Saturday, I am all gear up for my one hour of indulgence. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the Clarins girl and was ask to wait a the small lounge for the beautician. The beautician Lavinnia arrived about 10 mins later. I was then being shown to the beauty room. The room smells nice. Well, it should be, after all the hours and hours spend by beauty junkie being rub with the heavenly scented oil. I then change and wrap in big towels while waiting for the beautician.
After 5 mins, Lavinnia came and I lie down on my front so that she can start the massage on my back. A min later, I can feel warm aromatic oil being pour on my back. It feels so good. Once she started, it's even better. After 1 hour, I can feel the stress and tension on my body melting away drowning in the gorgeous smell of the oil. When she finish with the massage, she then put on some perfume water on the upper body. This is great coz I can feel the refreshing tingling. This is not just for the scent but also to lighten the oil that has been smother on. All in all, I would say, it's absolutely fantastic. The promotion is still on going till end of the month. For those who are in London, try this out.
