NOTD: Etude House Petit Darling Nails PP903

A while back, I made it a mission to find the perfect pale lilac nail polish. It was harder than it seemed, most of what I've seen were too pink or too dark. I even considered making my own by adding a couple of drops of dark purple polish to a bottle of white polish. I never got around to it because I found one I was happy with at Etude House. I should've known to look there first. They definitely know their pastels (I mean, look at their store!)

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa

 Killing two birds with one stone as I practice techniques on personalizing blog pics and update the blog at the same time.

Addis Ababa is my second Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream. The first one was Milan, which I reviewed here in case you missed it.

I don't have a lot to add to what I already said about the product in that review, so just check that out for more details. This post is going to focus on the shade in particular.

Last Few Hauls of 2011

 Welcome back to the blog, lovelies! I hope that everyone's off to a good start this 2012.

Before I move forward completely, here are a couple of new stuff I got before the new year and a little something about some of them. Expect a more detailed review for the others in the future. Note that I didn't get all of this at the same time.

From eBay:


Baviphat  Makeup Case- roomy and with compartments for brushes.
Korean Travel Brush Set- the brushes are kind of flimsy but usable. The brushroll is really pretty.
Beauty Credit Naked Balm- a kind of bb cream for the body. Have yet to use it.
Baviphat Sugar Girl Peach Sebum Solution Pact in Shade #2 (Natural Beige)

I also got a couple more samples but let's save those for later. More stuff after the jump.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Contest Factory for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 In order to be happy and productive at work, one needs to have the ideal working environment, and that includes your workspace. Even the greatest minds will have trouble producing quality output when all he has is a cramped cubicle, an uncomfortable chair,  an ancient computer and harsh fluorescent lights.

In contrast, those who work at home have an equally tough problem: they might get too comfortable.They also have more distractions like the TV, the fridge and family. They need a workspace that'll keep them in business mode.

If you're in either situation and want to improve your office/cubicle/workspace, or if you know anyone who could use a workspace makeover,  then check out  the Pimp My Cube Contest They are looking for someone with the worst office/cubicle or workspace and want to hook him or her up with everything he or she needs for the perfect workspace.
