Spidey! Makeup! Skincare!

[001] Going to see Amazing Spider-man at 8PM tonight, WOOT - I chose the UltraAVX option primarily for the ability to reserve my seat in advance. I miss being able to select my seat - having to show up early to get a good row is just...made of fail. Also, had a $5 balance on an old giftcard so it costed the same as a regular ticket anyway :3

[002] Over the year I've focussed on improving my skincare regimen and makeup. Recent purchases I'm super happy with:
  • Conair: Spin Brush - Getting gorgeous volume and styling like the ones following a haircut at a salon but at home and with a single tool - so much love <3
  • Nature's Gate: Oh what a Night -its a nightcream that's moisturing but has an almost velvet matte finish - over the past 2 weeks my skin is firmer, clearer and smoother so I'm kinda crazy about this.
  • Arbonne Makeup Primer - picked this up off ebay and used it only once so I have to see its effect in the long run, but oh my god! Makeup just glided on and my face felt so smooth to touch. I tend to worry about clogged pores and breakouts so I'll be extra careful when washing it off at the end of the day.
  • ELF: 11 Piece Brush Collection - okay, I admit I haven't used this yet, but picked it up for$3 instead of $30! And I could pick up a few other items like the ELF concealor pen which I have used and is pretty awesome.
  • Back in Winter/Spring, I subscribed to luxebox and glymm which got me some really nice samples for a while - it also led to me picking up Vasanti Brighten Up Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator off for 50% off since I finished the whole premium sample and it worked well in conjunction with the Olay Pro-X system
My only anxiety now is what I'm going to do when my Prescriptives foundation and powder get over - where else will someone blend colors to match my skin tone exactly? Damn you, Estée Lauder. Though, I should probably thank you for your lipstick line since I bought three or four off of ebay. My sister's fab Chanel lipstick also convinced me to pick up my own in the shade Mademoiselle :3

The only purchases left in regards to makeup are blush, peach nude lipstick and a lipstain.

In regards to blush, I've been thinking of picking up a cream blush and have narrowed it down to the NYX Rouge blush cream in Natural  or Illamasqua's cream blush in Rude (which is unavailable in Canada though ;_;) Would also be picking up either NARS blush in Amour or Clinique Blushing Powder in Precious Posy. Still considering Tarte Cheek Stain in Blissful too.

For lipstain, I'm looking to try Sephora's Lush Flush Wine Stain. I loved the color of Rimmel's Birthday Suit in my high school and college years and was considering finding something similar in the MAC line. Need to swatch High Tea, Cherish, Honey Love, Touch, Flattering at a local store before making any decisions.

[003] I'm using the summer to focus on fitness, mainly for zumba, yoga, and some weekly things (total fitness, hi-lo and westcoast fitness) depending on how the first classes go. Thank god for group buy sites (bought 2 gym passes for 20 classes for $20) and community centers all over the place.

[004] Marathoned Game of Thrones a few weeks ago (it's my sister's fault!) and I adore Arya Stark (and ship her with Gendry to be quite honest) - TBH there are a few parallels I can draw between this OTP and my Zuko/Toph love. Also, Jon Snow :D But, really: ARYA \o/

[005] Don't know if anyone follows Fringe (or remembers Faramir's father in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) but I got John Noble's autograph in Whole Foods! A colleague pointed him out during lunch and asked if he seemed familiar and a light bulb went off. He was super nice to sign the one sheet of paper I had on me ^^ I was bouncing  a foot up in the air after XD I think my colleagues were laughing at me by then >_>

[006] Failed to pimp it out when I read it but hereticalvision's The Secretary’s Sensational Seduction combines my high-school love of harlequin!romances and my next-gen OTP (James/Scorp) :D

[007] I keep playing Madeon's Pop Culture - I blame this Community promo , which kinda made me want to marathon the show for the umpteenth time.
  • Current Mood: excited
Srsly! Watching them is Season 2 had me all *_* Awesome chemistry as friends and given a few years, I don't see why it can't be endgame :D :D :D
It's a nice way to unite the houses of Stark and Bartheon, even if Gendry is illegitimate. Ned and Robert would probably have liked that.
Wait, but doesn't Spider-man come out tomorrow? I remember because it's my bday. :3 Or are you going to an advance screening?

I recently marathoned Game of Thrones too, and I'm definitely on the Arya/Gendry bandwagon. I was a little unsure at first because the actors look so far apart in age, but the characters won my over. Now to get my hands on the books!
I reserved a seat for the first showing, which was as 8PM :D

I'm thinking that if the series takes a few years to get to the end then the age gap will squick far less people out and make it awesomesauce :3
That spin brush is amazing. If I can get my hands on one, I don't need to use a flat iron or blow dryer on my hair to style it. *___*
Considering I have both a curler and a flat iron and never use them, the spin brush has to be AMAZING for me to use it practically everyday XD I just blow dry most of my hair and use the spin brush to style and I think I need to pick up a soft bristle boar brush in future to replace my regular brush too XD

I picked mine on amazon and there might be an option for delivery to asia - the only issue might be voltage in that case but adapter plugs should work :D

There was an immediate "OMG, where have you been all my life" vibe when I saw the product - I just wish I discovered it before buying a hair curler that I never use >_>
