Pretty In Pink

Thank you to those who helped me out with the HTML! I hope I can get it up this weekend.

I love pink. I think I had a pink obsession back in the first year of uni. Pink shadows will always be my first love even though I tend to go for more neutral shades nowadays.
I have 4 pink shadows: MM Frozen Splash Eyes PK705, Lunasol Soft Silver Lighting, Coffret D'or 3D Lighting Eyes 01 and the Integrate PK760 from Yume. I love em all, but the Coffret D'or one is still my HG pink shadow if there's such a thing.

Yesterday I did a look with the Integrate palette. It's a very simple look. First, I used the MM cream as a base. Next, I applied the left shade (very pale pink) all over the lid up to the brow and the right shade (quite a dark pigmented pink) all over the eyelid. Then I dabbed the middle silverish white shade on the middle of my lid, applied the P&J pencil liner in 04 and finally smudged the deep purple shade on top. Told you it's simple!

The lighting in my office doesn't do the shadows any justice. It even brings out my dark eye circles even though I used concealer, blah!
Although the look is simple, I like how the pink looks very sweet and innocent.
I think this palette is comparable to my Coffret D'or 01. They both last very long and are quite pigmented.

Here are the swatches. I was standing right next to the window. The shadow is shimmery, but not over done.

I wandered around and saw the Amore Pacific HQ at Yongsan and the Hanskin HQ at Gangnam. I'm not sure if there are other offices around Seoul. I really like the Hanskin building, it's like swiss cheese.

What could be in this huge Lunasol tote!? I'll show you this weekend XD

Please don't be offended if I didn't tag you. I love everyone too!!! I generally try to rotate. If I don`t stop blogging, I'm never gonna sleep tonight =p

Oh, here's the audio of my crazy ass neighbour. Don't say you've had a bad day till you hear how this guy's day ended haha.
It's really long, but it's totally worth it!!! The stuff in brackets is what we thought he said. I don't think he said "fermented" in the end, but it sounds like it.
I suggest you use headphones to get the maximum experience haha and count how many "fucks" there are XD

I luv pink eye colors too, but they always make me look like I have eye infection or my eyelids have rash something. One of my male coworker told me I look better with green and blue eye colors when I was wearing pink on my eyes.

Whoa could you hear that guy through the walls? He seems wacko, LOL

paperdollrevenge said...

LMAO at the video! I like the intro. Is he for real though? I can barely hear the person responding to him, almost makes me think he's acting/rehearsing hehe (sowwies I didn't use my headphones...oh I can kind of hear her voice). Man...that's some shitty day he was having, haha! You should leave them a note...something like "please keep your fucking voices down." ;)

That is a cute Lunasol bag! I can't wait to see what's inside!

Pink eyeshadow looks very sweet on you. I always think pink shadows look so nice in the palettes/pans but they don't show up well on me.

Thank you for the tag! <3

LK said...

Very nice look with the pink eyeshadows!! I've only used that color I'm kinda boring I guess. Steering more towards greys/blacks I guess :P

Btw your neighbour is crazy funny. He went all Christian Bale, eh! haha

Miss Yaya said...
