Pa Nail Polish Haul and Swatches

Helloo... It's been long time since I blog about nail polish.
Last week bought few of Pa nail polishes. Bought it from Cosmed - next to Xihu MRT station (I don't think all of Cosmed have this brand). It was on sale for 15% off  (yeayy!!!), so these what I bought

All of nail polishes in 6 ml

From left to right; AA77, AA75, A138,A15


Nude mud brown.
I was expecting it more creamier, but it end up to be more glossy 
but still a pretty nude 

A138 (artificial light)
One coat of A138 on top of A15 
So pretty, it's shimmery nude brown <3 <3 love these duo 

I really love these duo (A15+A138)
So pretty under the light, even on daylight
(This picture on daylight)
The shimmer is so pretty, not too over, but you still can see the blink blink of it <3

Metallic purple 
It has a bit shimmer in it

Turquoise green 
It's one shade darker in the bottle
so I was expecting it to be darker green, the x'mas kind of green 
 It's turn out to be more turquoise, but still pretty :D

In all of the picture I put 2 coats of polish without top coat.

My First Impression about this nail polish; 
1. Really impress with their quick drying formula 
2. The formula is perfect for me not too thick not to runny
3. They have various range of colors 
4. Stay long on my nails (2 days without chipping-considering the house chore I have to do and I didn't put top coat on it)
5. Price is also affordable 

Correct me, If I'm wrong, I think Pa is Japanese brand but all of these nail polishes are made in France. 
Have you heard about this brand? 

Have a great weekend 
and thank you for reading my blog <3

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick #609 AUBERGINE Swatch and my big Dissapointment

Finallyyy... I'm back :D
Shopped a bit when I back home. My sister is crazy about this brand right now. Max Factor.... I guess new counter?? (not sure but I didn't notice the counter last year), anyway they have counter in Tunjungan Plasa (MDS) and Galaxy Mall (centro)- (Surabaya).
So the story is... my sis recommend Max Factor lippie a lot, so I'll decide to check out the counter and I fall in love with this color

A dark red lipstick <3 <3 

It's a really nice dark red lip color. 
In the mood of autumn <3
The lipstick has a nice scent of vanilla, it's pigmented, long lasting, and didn't dry out my lips. 
and it's affordable. 
Bought it at 87,500 IDR @ Centro Galaxy Mall 

As you can see, the EXPIRY DATE is '014 (which I believe it's saying 2014) 
bought this lipstick on October 3rd,2013. Which is mean when I bought it, and paying full price for this product, I got the product that would be expired in 3 months!!!! 
I noticed the label when I got home and I felt so disappointed, so a day after that I went back to centro, and directly went to customer service and told them that I want to return the product, and I'm telling the reason, and show them the expiry date written on the label. 

Honestly, the customer service didn't help at all, she just took me to Max Factor's counter and let me speak directly to their Beauty Assistant. When I said my point about the expiry date listed on the label..... (it's just getting worst), the BA answered, that manuf date and expiry date doesn't mean anything, it's written for no reason, the most important is the time when you open the lipstick cap and used it. So the day you open and used the lipstick plus 36 months just like the label under it. 

I just couldn't believe it I heard that explanation from a BEAUTY ASSISTANT......!!!!!! WHAT THE....?????? Did she know that all of the cosmetic products has shelf life? even tough you don't open or use the product but after 3 or 4 years of manufacturing date, It will be EXPIRED!!!! 
After heard that explanation.... I just felt even worst!!! I just asked the CS who stand beside me, If you were me, bought this lipstick and read the label of expiry date, would you be disappointed just like me? and she just nodded. Nodded but couldn't do anything...... T.T

If you were me.... how would you feel?
Thanks for reading <3
