Birthday Goodies 2013

November is my favourite month of the year because the weather gets cooler, I can wear my cozy sweaters & boots & dark nail colours. But more importantly, November is my birthday month!
This year, my birthday is kicked off by a packet of goodies  that my sister Cynthy (@beautyorbread) sent me from Hong Kong!

  • Angled blush brush by Ava Liu - Ava is a model & a celebrity in Hong Kong, who recently launches her own line of makeup brushes. She also makes beauty-related videos on YouTube
  • Eyeshadow Crayon from Etude House - Etude House is a Korean brand that is not available in the UK. This is a duo ended crayon in Bronze, with a smudger tip on the other end. 
  • Lipliner from Etude House - a twist up lipliner in rosy pink shade.
  • A pair of sparkly tri-butterflies ear rings

And a very cute handbag birthday card (here modelled by little piglet)

What is on your birthday wish list?

So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night.
