FOTD: 120 Palettes


I wasn't feeling great yesterday as I woke up with rashes on my neck. It's time of the year... I don't normally take my anti hestamine medication because it makes me feel drowsy but I did anyway just to ease the itching and oh dear... I thought I would never make it to my boyfriends let alone wear make up :(

I do apologize for not being able break down what I've used in this FOTD but promise I will soon :)

For now... I'd leave you my FOTD yesterday using my 120 palette off Ebay...


As promised, I am now telling you what I've used in this FOTD. Please bear with me as this may not be as straight forward as I'd like it to be because the colours of 120 Palettes are not identified. However, I'd try my hardest to be as comprehensive as I could be in describing them.

In this FOTD, I've used the following:


Primer: Christian Dior Capture R-Flash Instant Ultra Smoothing Fluid

Foundation: Clinique Superfit Make Up (Neutral/05)

Concealer: MAC Select Moisturiser (NC35)

Foundation: Clinique Almost Powder Make Up (Medium/05)

Press Powder: Clinique Superpowder Double Face Powder (Matte Ivory/01)

EYES: This is where things get complicated :P


Eye Primer: Elizabeth Arden Eye Fix Primer

Highlight: Vanilla (Bottom left of the palette with black in them) all over my eye lids

Eye lids blended towards the creases: Orange palette with marble effect, second from the bottom (right)

Creases: Black (Third from the right)... blended on the creases

Eye Liner: Clinique Cream Shape (Black Diamond/101)

Mascara: Lancome Virtouse Mascara (Upper lashes)

Mascara: Clinique High Impact Mascara (Bottom lashes)


Blusher: Yves Saint Laurent Blush Variation (Rose Cendre/09)


Lip Liner: Chanel Precision Lip Definer (Griotte)

Lip Gloss: Yves Saint Laurent (Golden Gloss/6KAC)

That's me done!

Hiya, Anne! Thank you! I do apologise for not being able to break down the whole FOTD... my bf was rushing to grab some dinner before training so I had to run.

On my lips in this FOTD, I used Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Griotte and Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss (6KAC)

Gracie said...

Thank you Tracy! I'm not surprised! Ha ha ha! With 120 colours to choose from... I'm sure everyone finds that it's a great make up item to have :)

You should really try it and with what it's worth... it's really worth the try :)

Thank you Nikki and Maria! Yeah, I'm feeling better now and going to work :)... but this thing does flare up on summer time and it's the season where I get ups and down with hay fever and other allergies that comes with it *sigh

Diana, my dear! Thanks! I feel so much better now :)... I'm sure you'll love your adopted make up from sis Jheng! 120 palettes too? Won't that be greedy thing to do sis? Ha ha ha! Of course, that's not a bad idea at all! The more the better... in this case anyway ;)

Thank you sis Shen! Really? You think so? I just love the colours as they are surprisingly pigmented event he highlight colours. My bf told me that my eyes that day looked jaundice (*sigh... Cheeky sod!)

Thank you Gio my darling! Hey! When are you launching your very own blog site if you haven't already got it. It's about time you share your stuff with us ;)

Oh Jheng! Don't be my darling! Wow! I can't wait for you to get your very own 120 palettes... more FOTD to copy ha ha ha!
