It seems like my little (or not so little) obsession is getting the better of me. For the past month, I've been trying to commit to a 'no spending' ban, because really the amount I spend on beauty products is getting a tad out of hand, and also because I am going overseas next month and need to save up for that. Clearly, the ban didn't work (*sigh). What started as a trip to the shopping centre to buy some little bits and pieces ended up being a beauty haul after seeing those super bad red 'sale' tags that lure me in every time. Oh well, a little bit of new products never hurt anyone right? RIGHT?
And finally some eye and nail products. I decided to try out the Revlon colour stay nail polish in Bare Bones after seeing Essie Button rave on about it on her blog, let me tell you she did not exaggerate. I am currently wearing them on my nails and I am in LOVE. I would say it is more on the grey side than being a true 'nude' but I love it regardless. I also bought some colour tattoo eye colours in bad to the bronze and tough as taupe, both on sale for $7, I will probably buy some more. And lastly, my favourite Rimmel eye liner, exaggerate waterproof eye definer in noir. I have extremely oily lids and my liner smudges pretty easily and this one of the liners I have found that doesn't smudge at all.
There you have it, my first beauty haul post! What beauty products have you purchased recently? Do you have any of these products? What do you think of them?

At the moment I am hitting the pan on the nude colours of my Naked 2 palette, in particular 'Foxy' (one of my fave colours to use as an eyeshadow base) so it gave me even more reason to buy this palette. And if for some reason that wasn't enough to sway me, the palette was on sale on Beauty Bay for $28 (the beauty Gods were practically begging for me to buy it).
Like the other Naked palettes, the colours are fairly pigmented. Even on my pale skin you can still make out the swatches of the more nude colours (though just barely). To my delight all the colours on the palette are matte except Venus which would be used as a highlighter.
All in all, If you're not a fan of nudes and/or matte colours I would suggest that you skip this palette as it clearly wouldn't be for you. However, if you are like me and love matte and nude colours, I say that this is a must have for you. I personally love this palette and would be ready to recommend it.
Do you have the Naked Basics Palette? What do you think?

I had previously been running a personal blog/whatever tickles my fancy shindig over at Tumblr for a few years now under the name chntlove. However, at some point in time I guess you could say a hit a quarter life crisis, lost my muse and had no idea what I was doing anymore and therefore stopped blogging completely. Now, I have finally decided to re-emerge and take a crack at blogging in a more 'professional' environment. Please be ever so kind to me, I can't say I'm new to this thing per say by golly gosh Blogspot has been a scary/forbidden place for me to enter, but here I am ladies and gents, round of applause please.
So what will my blog be about anyway? Well basically a bit everything, pretty much like me who likes a bit everything. There will be some personal stuff (but nothing gory or sappy I promise), some beauty or fashion related posts (but mostly beauty because who am I kidding I ain't fashionable), some ranty/complaining posts about life, society and whatever else (because apparently I am whiny, judgmental person who can't keep my opinions to myself), some reviews, and whatever else. I hope that you will embark on this journey with me as I try to navigate the blogger hemisphere!
