Essence All About Nude 01 Eyeshadow Palette & Essence Eyeshadow Brush [Review]

I was never a big fan of eyeshadows until I bought this palette a few weeks ago.

I never intended to shop for eyeshadows because I thought eyeliner is more than enough (and because I own 6 different colours of eyeliners, I feel that they are more than enough for me). However, I never forget to visit the Essence corner at Priceline (Bourke Street branch) whenever I go to that side.

Nearly 95% of my makeup products are from Essence, and I sort of just developed a habit of shopping for MORE things to add to my collection whenever I'm there.

ps: I did a review on Essence's lip products a few months ago, click HERE to read it ^^ You'll know how much I love Essence.

With just approximately 6.50 dollars, I realized that this Essence All About Nude 01 Eyeshadow Palette was too gorgeous for me to resist :p

6 colours for 6.50 dollars? It wouldn't hurt for me to try! And so, I bought it without thinking so much.


One thing I love about Essence is that their products are never "made in China". I can't accept anything that is to be put on my face to be made in China. Sorry I'm this biased ><


Aren't they gorgeous?


The dark purple on the bottom right corner is my favourite among all of them!


I also bought an eyeshadow brush to go with this palette.


I bought this Essence Smokey Eye Brush from Essence for 2.4 dollars if I'm not mistaken.


Essence has another brush that is in pink, which does not say "smokey eye", but it's in pink, so as usual, I went for the non-pink one regardless what is its actual purpose :p


I used to think that makeup brushes are really expensive because I kept on seeing/hearing my friends or other bloggers saying they spent a lot on makeup brushes. However, with less than 3 dollars, I bought my first eyeshadow brush and I seriously love its quality so much.

Even after I washed it using ordinary shampoo and leaving it to dry on the table without doing anything more, it still remained in good condition. It doesn't really need much care and it's cheap and it's of good quality!



This is the very mild look that I usually wear to work using only the dark purple colour from the bottom right corner of the palette.


In this video, I also tried doing an exaggerated smokey eye effect using 3 colours from the palette.


Disclaimer: This is not a makeup tutorial by any means, I actually don't know the rules for makeup, I just do things MY own way and that's it. My intention was just to share with my bestie how to make fancy styles using this palette (I bought her one as present).

Words can't describe how much I love Essence's products because they NEVER disappoint me!!!!!

That's all for today, I'm going to sleep soon because I still have some Korean society stuffs to settle in school tomorrow. 안녕~

Art is Rubbish is Art

Recent years, my hometown, Penang has been receiving much more attention than usual thanks to one incredibly talented artist ERNEST ZACHAREVIC!

"Art is Rubbish Rubbish is Art" is the very first solo art exhibition by Ernest, located at The Hin Company Bus Depot.

While I was back in Penang during the previous summer holidays, I bugged my girl friends to bring me there because I kept on seeing people posting photos from that art exhibition and the media also gave a lot of coverage about this art exhibition! Moreover the exhibition was said to be opened for a certain period of time only and that made me even more enthusiastic. 

If I didn't go...I would feel like a loser :p HAHA!


Thanks to babe Yong Huey who drove us there from Pragin Mall :3 HEHE Finally I can announce "I was there!"

Excuse me for my non-makeup face because....I couldn't be bothered >< These are my closest friends who have seen the worst side of me, so why would I be bothered :p Plus, the weather in Malaysia was too hot for me to endure under a layer of BB cream and eyeliner, especially at the heritage site? NO WAY :p

I don't think I have to do any story telling in this blog post, it really is just about photos!




These were the masterpieces that greeted us at the main hall.


Bi Ling, my neighbour-next-table for continuously 2 years in high school was like "Eh Don't take a photo of me lehhhh!" This cutie pie <3


The outside was actually an empty space with a few pieces of walls.




Here come the excessive faces of ours :p

















I actually don't have much to say about this exhibition because I'm not an artsy person myself so I don't want to comment this and that...because I appreciate every form of art!!


Miss my girl friends so much. A lot had happened within these 2 months and I really wish I could be back in Penang living my carefree life - eating, shopping, going to movies, taking endless selfies with my babies and also immerse ourselves in never ending gossips >< I'm pretty stressed out throughout these 2 months, first it was exams and then friendship problems and shit...Nevertheless, I realize that I've been spending most of my school holidays worrying about problems that can't be solved by me no matter how hard I tried, so from now FUCK IT ALL~! I'm going to effing enjoy my holidays...

There will be many blog posts coming up from tomorrow onwards, remember to stay with me dear Unicorns ♥
