Waiting for.. (mail)

After a period of using the computer for studying, I have refound the love of ordering online. I cannot post anything beautiful yet, but let me sum up for the items I am anxiously waiting for:
  • Cle de Peau eye quint in 21: I saw this beauty on! It was the gorgeous item I blogged about before (here), and I jumped up and down when I finally found it online! Unfortunately, the palette I ordered first, no 20, was sold out. Good for me I browsed a bit further, so I found a even better palette for my needs.
  • Maquillage Face creator in 22: I already have and adore the 33 (review here) but I still want a bit of bronzer colours for the upcoming spring (no, spring has not sprung yet in my miserable little country). I love to be pale and I am completely fine with being pale (and the Japanese aestetics value pale faces) but my country values 'the tan'. So, I have to fake it a bit in order to avoid comments it I have been ill...LOL
  • Sofina Primavista smooth coat base from I have ordered a couple of Sofina Primavista samples earlier. Actually, I ordered them to try out the Bright up Base and ended up liking the Smooth Coat base even more for 'airbrushing' my pesky pores. Another bonus, there is not silicony feel that you can have with the usual primers.
  • Maquillage Moisture Rouge (sheer type) PK 705. I ordered a sample set of some Maquillage lipsticks on bobodave before, and ended up liking the RS 724 (color type) and PK 705. And whoohoo, Facial shop had the PK 705 for a good discount ($ 21.99 instead of the $34 I have seen at other webshops). I still want the RS 724.
I will end my post with an oldy-goldy from the lovely ninetees: Waiting for by the Red Hot Chili Peppers

I'm addicted to ordering online and then obsessively tracking my packages.

The Cle de peu eye quints are so pretty I haven't been able to decide which to try first.

My first items from Maquillage were the face creator in 22 and the PK705. :) Now I'm waiting for the face creator in 44.

oooooooooh! You little hauler! I can't wait to see your goodies!

I also like a comment that you made in the previous post about "take the cheap out of the deal" -- what a great line!

i am so impatient with waiting! i like the whole instant gratification but alas sometimes we just cant

I am terrible about ordering online. Every time I've been home sick for a couple of days, the packages start rushing :/

Love Red Hot Chili Peppers!

Hi Jenn,
Oh..I am the little internet addict shopper as well. I kind of get the shopping rush twice: the first time when I order it and the second time when it arrives. The 44 looks so beautiful as well: actually, I love all of them.

Hi Jamilla Camel,
he he, look who is talking about hauling? thank you about your compliment on my line. I am not a native English speaker but sometimes I seem to get it right (I hope)

Hi Yumeko,
Sometimes I want instant gratification as well, but the nicest thing about internetshopping is, as I also said to Jenn, the double shopping rush...

Hi Pixie,
I also tend to shop more in the weekend, especially on a boring day.
And the red hot chilli peppers are so wonderfully retro now. The whole grunge period actually...

Wow~~ You got goodies coming in the mail!! :D

cheryl said...

i quite want to get the face creator in number 11 but i think it's a bit pricey for what it is... how much would the refill cost?

birkinbagbeauty said...

Hi Fuz,
yes, I am looking forward for these! ;D

Hi Cheryl,
Ichibankao is having a %5 discount now on the refil, which makes it $39 (still expensive, though). I thought I saw it on bobodave for $34, but you still have to pay shipping at bobodave. I have bought the new one I am waiting for @ ebay for $32 including the box, so that was a nice deal.

Hahah I'm guilty of being obsessed with online shopping too! =P. I hate the waiting game though! Oooh I'm excited for everything you got! =)
