Last week was extraordinarily busy (it will slow down after V day). So, I kept my look simple by editing my makeup choices and using products from RMK's Autumn Layering Colors 2013 A/W Collection.

 RMK Ingenious Cream & Powder Eyes 05 Brown Gold.

The Ingenious Cream & Powder Eyes are a tiny, lightweight, 2-in-1 compact that is a necessity in any makeup kit. The upper deck contains a matte cream shadow,
which slides out to expose a glimmering (not glittery) color coordinated powder shadow.

The product also comes with a small dual-sided retractable brush. Not bad if you're in a pinch.

From left to right: Ingenious Cream & Powder Eyes 05 Brown Gold, Sheer Powder Cheeks 05 Natural Pink, Gloss Lips N P-11 Coral Beige.

I love all of these products, especially both eyeshadows and the lipgloss.

  1. I think those e/s are nice but a bit overpriced, I see myself reaching for my other e/s more though (purged, hehe). I like the lip here on you a lot / Claire xxx

    1. Recently, I've been reaching for this little eye shadow cube alot. Great to use when you're in a rush. Also, the cream shadow doesn't crease or budge. I'll be investing in more of them. I love that lipgloss, and can't put it down :)

  2. Hello, beautiful! You look even more goddessy than usual in these bronzed tones! Are you busy because all your worshippers are coming to pay homage pre Val day? ;)

    ALSO! RMK triforce blushes! You haz?

    1. Hey gorgeous! I'm having problems with Shinjuku's zoning regulations, and the erection of my temple of worship. I keep telling them that three sides of building has to have a view of Isetan, but we'll see :P

      The tri blushes are a triple threat!

  3. Happy chinese new year pretty!! I used to like RMK more before they changed their director :) esp love their ingenious shiny mix dots in their eyeshadows!

    1. Happy Chinese New Year Jenni! Yeah, I'm not to happy with Rumiko's Departure from the brand. She WAS the driving force behind RMK. This was her last collection, and I LOVED it!
