Fresh out of the oven:
Hey guys, it's finally time for an entry without singing, or bored-to-death bookface note thingies. Relieved? xD So this entry is basically going to be my e.l.f. mini haul that came in ^ ^~
Note: the makeup works for cosplay too, so don't think of this as a female-aimed entry.

Before I move on to the makeup and pictures, I have a little story to tell :3 You can read if you like, or click Read More below and skip right to the haul.

So most of you should know that I visited Hong Kong during the beginning of Summer 2010. Most of the time, I mainly focus on the shopping(which I made an entry about here.) and something I was concerned about at the time(and still am, to be honest) was the my skin shade. I was very concerned that I had gotten a hell of a lot darker compared to when I was young, and wanted to find a product that was able to help me lighten my skin.
In asian cultures, pale skin is considered a definition of beauty, and I do believe in this. I always envy those pale-skinned asian girls who I see walk past during my commute to college and so I was telling my mom about this as we strolled through a particular mall in Hong Kong. Funny enough, mom spots a Shiseido store (Side Note: My mom has a huge collection of facial and skin cremes. It's been something that carried through starting from when she got her first job, all the way until now, and most likely way into the future.) and notices a product that was being promoted for being a good creme to use if you want to lighten your skin(among other things like smoothness, acne prevention and ingredients that are good for your face etc.) The price was a bit over our budget, so we decided to leave it until the day we left and crossed our fingers in hopes that the price will drop. Unfortunately, the price did not drop so we shrugged our shoulders and left for Toronto. It wasn't a super important need, and at the price they were selling, it should've have been made and churned out of diamonds to live up to that price.
Here's the twist, and how it relates to the makeup haul: Mom came into my room yesterday with the exact same product in her hands, along with two small sample boxes of Makeup Primer(also from Shiseido.) I didn't have a use for those primers... until now. Oh! and by the way, me and mom both decided that she would use the creme and I would wait until Summer Vacation to use it. With my bad sleeping schedule, using it now would be a complete waste of money.

Starting off, I'll list all the items I bought with pictures(and commentary 8D):
Foundation: Fair
To be used with the Kabuki brush.

 32pcs Eyeshadow Collection

 My apologies for the low-light pictures :/
Right: Top row, going backwards.
Left: Second row, going backwards.

Right: Third row, going backwards. 
This is my favourite row. Look at all the vibrant colours!!
Left: Final row, going backwards

Kabuki Face Brush
To be used with my Foundation. It's really soft!!

(2) Black Eyeliner
 I already use this item from my last e.l.f. haul. This was just because I was running out. 
 My Opinion: This eyeliner is a must-have for me. It's waterproof, yet comes off with makeup remover really easily. It can withstand intense heat(I tested this at Anime North.) No smudges, no accidental under-eye smudge marks and most importantly, the tip makes it very easy to apply!!

 Zit Zapper
Bought it on the tinsy hope that it works. 
Probably won't but it only costed me $1 so I don't really mind.

That's what they used in the old days xD
And I have to ask you to teach to do makeup...
I got an award ceremony on wed and I gave up on makeup...
I'm going to give up and give up and give up over and over again....
I need to learn
