Let's push this aside first because now in this post am going to share with you guys about NARS newest Spring 2015 Collection! weaayyy!!

I felt so honored that a few days ago I got invited to have a makeover at NARS Pavilion, KL...to say the truth I've never been to NARS before..and so far I only owned two of NARS product, and even it wasn't because I bought them but I received it on my birthday as a birthday present. So far I only paying attention on buying and collecting a Japanese cosmetics. Though I know that NARS is under Shiseido and Shiseido is one of the famous Japanese brand...I'm still attracted to collect all the Dolly Wink eyelashes first at the moment...(oh I'm sooo an eyelashes gurl~ haha)
