i love how the big brushes come with a protective cover which is thick and sturdy plastic!

These are all Taklon brushes.

Taklon is the common name for a synthetic fiber used in artist-quality paint, makeup and pin stripe brushes. It is a smooth, soft, and somewhat fragile polyester derivative devoid of any protein component or allergen elements and is therefore used in the cosmetic industries as a “green,” “vegan,” “allergy free” or synthetic alternative to animal hair brushes.

Actually i already have a stippling brush from MAC BUT it sucks to the max!
the hair always always drop out when i use it and its not 1 strand its a few strands! everytime i try to give it another chance more drop out. since so many fall out already, i shd know that there isnt much hair left to hold it tight and more is going to drop out soon since its no longer tight so… i have to buy another one..
Also, my only experience w stippling brushes is that they give me a very uneven streaky finish, and use 3 times the amount of product than if i use my fingers.
I dont know why everyone says its more defined and smooth and even finsih cos mine is always a disaster, even with a foundation brush from The BOdy shop.

SO i decided to give stippling brushes a second chance.. by buying another one. please let this be good.

Saving the best for the LAST!!!…

This is my fave part of the haul!!!!!
you know how crazy expensive mixed nuts is in singapore? its about $6 per 100g
thats y i very very seldom buy and 100 g i finsih is 2 days MAX.

this cost about SG$10 and its 454g!! plus its one of the top sellers becos is pure, natural, raw and unprocessed!
i love snacking in office and this is the best snack to have.
raw food gives me a quick energy boost and super healthy for the brain and heart ❤

Some of the stuff i got in less than an hour today!!

Forever new lime cut out dress – $55.79 (original $159.90)

20130605-220627.jpg

My first cut out dress!
I love the triangle cut out cos its below my bust not on top. not cleavage baring so i dont feel so insecure..
Made of thick satin so looks very fit and structured.
This is UK 4 and im UK6 so i took forever to zip it. Really have to stop breathing.
I will need to diet 2 weeks before i can wear it for a wedding. Otherwise i cant eat at all in this dress.

Uniqlo shorts $16 and skorts $25

20130605-220803.jpg
These are going to be my June faves!
They came in many prints and these are my choices
The shorts is elastic band at waist so its so easy to wear yet looks so chic for my weekend staples. I want to buy more.
Wish i got it on sale (since they have random sales on selected pieces)
The skorts are made of this silky soft material that feels cool n looks shiny to the touch.
Its 99% skirt and 1% shorts cos i only know its skorts cos my fren told me. The closure at the bottom is very low and just a small stitch. PERFECT for a girl like me whom cant sit properly.
