Nude Evening with NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit

I've just tried the NYX Nude Kit and am I glad I bought it! =D

Close up:

I used a mix of semi-matte and satiny shades from the palette to create this subtle nude look. The color selections of this palette complements my skin well =) Then I pair it with peach brown blush and champagne highlight. Slip on a peachy nude lipstick to finish off the look.

The shades I used in this look (marked by the stars ^_*)

Good Find in Daiso!

I'm so happy that Daiso has finally arrived in Penang! *lmao*

This is a good chance to buy cheap japanese made products, mostly small accessories, makeups, kitchen utensils, stationery and many many more at only RM5.

I previously owned some Daiso makeup palettes, they're quite reasonable in terns of quality, considering it is only RM5 (read review+FOTDs here). I'm actually quite excited to see some false eyelashes in Daiso! The upper lashes are just so so in quality but I'm liking their lower lashes.

Here's what I got, a pair of criss-crossed lower lashes with invisible band.

Visit Daiso store at 1st Floor of Queensbay Mall.

Sure, a low cut top can't hurt, but the surefire way to get his blood pumping is to wear a scent that will drive him crazy. Pick one from this list. (There are a bunch of hot colognes for him too!)
