This Palette is from NYX's Caribbean Collection - I Dream of Barbados-palette. A sunset blazing over a tropical beach apparently, or in my case for the coming December, The Frozen Lavender.
I know the original collection's name has the word "Caribbean" in it and naturally we think of a hot colourful summer with lot's of flowers, beaches, fruit punch and naked ladies? LOL. But no, thats the fun part about make up, you can get creative, mix and produce a new meaning from a single colour - besides, we have 5 in this palette hoho. (It could be just be the fact that i'm cheap and lazy so i like to make one palette do it all. haha) Whatever the reason, i'm sure you get my point.
I've used all the colors in the palette using mostly the silvers to blend with the purples to create this cold dreamy grayish purple look for the winter.
The colors are pigmented and soft and like i mentioned, theres so many combos you can come up with this palette. You can do either a basic smokey eye using the gray and black, or a smokey plum using the purples or for a nice winter look using the grays and purples, my Frozen Lavender look. Hehe.

Another one of my Fuji surprises, i'm starting to consider searching the internet if someone is selling the same model and get another F100. It's photos never lets me down even though it's so old!
So, a nice golden shoot this time, slightly freezing but it's all good.
Being so golden really reminded me of Christmas and makes me crave for a white Christmas. It doesn't snow in Hong Kong which is a bummer, maybe i should just got to Beijing this year or maybe head back to Japan and enjoy the hot springs.
Sigh, unfortunately my schedule is often full during the celebration seasons so i guess i'll just be working this Christmas and New Year like almost every year...BUT! I defiantly should plan something when it's all over hehe!

Ya, Apparently so...
Yes! They are twins indeed! (and so much younger than me, lord, what are kids feeding on nowadays!?) Easily amused as i am, i find identical twins an amazing creation. I mean, they look the same! Then... you see handsome model twins working together in one show? Wow! Actually there were 2 pairs of model twins during this show, Male and Female identical twins! Except the Female pair never showed up together so i had no idea i was talking to one sister one day and the other the next till they actually decided to stop fooling with me and tell me, the truth. :(
Yes, at the moment, i felt very stupid indeed.
On another note though, i felt extremely tiny next to them and i'm not short. I do wonder what it's like being so tall though, looking down at everyone? LOL well, can't have it all. People who are short want to be tall and people who are tall think they are too tall. My opinion? Just be happy and use what you got to it's fullest! ;)
