Colours Cosmetics Malaysia Haul : Swatches and Ramblings

via google

Hello my dears, 

How is your September so far?

Firstly, if you are one of the blessed ones who managed to score the local universities, 

This is the orientation week for fresh undergrads in all local universities. 
Are you one of them? If yes, how was it? :P

I recall not allowed to wash my college t-shirts and by the end of the week, 
when I washed it the water literally turned BROWN in colour. EWW. 
It was a torturous week but a memorable one indeed :) 


So much for 'frequent' updates... Sorry!
Had been trying to find ways of transferring the pictures from my phone to the laptop. 
Previously, I was using AirDroid but it keeps hanging because I download loads of pictures. 
My camera is being a bitch, so as for now I rely on my trusty Sony Xperia TX
The camera is pretty impressive. Will share more about it in a separate post.

It has been almost 2 weeks since my teaching practice 
and one of my course-mates announced that the results is already out in our uni's site.
I scored a A- for it! 
Thank you God, family & friends! <3

Okay, I gotta stop this rambling and get on with the MAIN purpose of this post. 

Colours Cosmetics Malaysia had a Merdeka promotion which ended recently on the 2nd of September. 

So, as usual. Being a typical Malaysian.
I just had too.


So here are the goodies that I got : 

I purposely chose this filter to ensure it looks true to colour. 

First Impressions
  • Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Bare All. 
    This lipstick seems more wearable than its sister, Peaches & Cream. Suitable for fair-skinned girls but it may give that white/chalky finish.
  • Sleek Pout Paint in Minx.
    When I first opened the tube, a layer of oil/substance came out of it instead of the colour. So do shake the tube as much as you can before squeezing the product. Note, a little goes a looooong way. You will need a very small amount as its thick and pigmented. It may not look 'natural' if applied heavily.
  • Loreal 24-Hour Infallible Eyeshadow (UK) in Coconut Shake.
    A 'meh' product. But it may work fine as a non-shimmery highlighter for those who prefer matte finish. Hope it performs as a basic eyeshadow well.
  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Single Eyeshadow in Nutty. 
    Okay, I had been eyeing this Nutty for more than year now and finally got my hands on it. I have read reviews/raves on how pretty the colour was, and yes, the raves should be taken seriously. The colour is gorgeous! No annoying, huge chunks of shimmer. Just a superb, sophisticated taupe colour for everyday wear.
  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Single Eyeshadow in Brulee. 
    This is actually a repurchased item. I have this eyeshadow and I love it too bits. Smooth matte, cream coloured finished which can be worn with a simple, black or brown eyeliner and TADA! Polished look.
  • NYX Single Eyeshadow in Silk. 
    Very. pretty. colour. 'Enuff said.
  • Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Brown Suede. 
    A red based brown eyeliner. PURRFECT!
  • Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Eggplant. 
    A superbly dark purple, looks like black with a purple base. Very similar to Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Blackberry.
  • Jordana Blush Powder in Sandalwood. 
    Very soft and smooth powder, comes in twist-open container. Suitable for fair-skinned girls.
    Leans more to neutral pink peach shade. Love, love, love!
  • Jordana Blush Powder in Sunlit Bronze.
    Same texture and physical attribute as Sandalwood. A soft peach-coral blush that gives a natural glow to the cheeks. LOVE!

So far, I am pretty happy and satisfied with my haul at Colours Cosmetics Malaysia
Can't wait to try all of them.

Till next time,
Sarah :)
