Update + Franken Fail

I am suchhhh a terrible blogger for not posting as regularly as I wished. The past two weeks have been crazy for me. My cousin fell quite ill and was warded for a few days. Then, my sister went for an operation because she tore her ACL and meniscus in her knee. Thankfully, they are both discharged from the hospital now and are recovering at home.

Just when I thought I could do some swatching over the weekend, it had to rain so I had to ditch my plan :(

Instead, I spent some time rushing out the orders that have been placed so far. I've shipped out more than half of the orders (check your email for shipping notification!) and plan to ship the rest of the orders out this week. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the terrible delay. ><

As I was filling up the orders, I had a sudden urge to try duping Butter London's Two Fingered Salute and this is what I've got:


Clearly I am a long way off. The color is not exactly right and the flecks are definitely not as copper as I would like. Oh wells. I wish I could get my hands on some TFS naoooooooooo!! *sad panda*

What about you? Are you the lucky owner of BL's Two Fingered Salute?

  3. I still think it's really pretty, even if it wasn't what you were aiming for.

  4. Fail?! It is lovely! I am receiving TFS soon, so I am very happy. I actually spotted it in America on my vacation last year, but at first I thought: I'll get it later on (we were traveling multiple cities). Then when I did want to buy, it was out of stock :(. I was so sad!

    Catrice Mint Me Up is sort of dupish to it!

  5. I love how the franken turned out, even though it wasn't you wanted.


    Hope your cousin and sister recuperate quickly.
