This blog is like a dumping ground for photos. Haha.
This is a series of collective hauls, meaning I didn’t buy all at once. Not that I can afford to. :s
Avene Thermal Spring Water, the mini sized. Used to spray it on face only whenever I feel tired but the whole can was used up during the Mayday f1 night. It felt shiok to spray on legs and arms :’DDDD
I honestly can’t tell the difference between this and water though.
Kate Slim Create Powder for Cover
I never used to be bothered with bronzers and contouring because who wants to look muddy brown? Well I was wrong. Contouring can do a whole lotta difference.
Many bloggers say it’s hard to go wrong with this product cos its pigmentation is just right for asian skins. I agree it’s hard to go wrong cos it’s so freakin sheer. The above swatch was done with MANY swipes. I would recommend this to geishas.
It looks alright on me though. Heh.
Real Techniques powder brush. Soft and big enough.
Don’t need to waste money buying expensive brushes when drugstore ones are just as good..
Samantha Chapman, known as Pixiwoo, the creator of Real Techniques. She’s a youtuber.
Innisfree Long Wear BB Cream SPF30 PA++. True to its name, the longevity of the BB cream was decent. The only flaw is the bad oil control. I guess Koreans prefer dewy skin? By 1 hour after applying (or maybe even lesser) my face was shining like a grease ball. Nothing blotting can’t help but sian lol.
Woes of oily skin.
Chose the lightest shade and it is indeed quite fair… A bit too fair for me.
Innisfree eyeshadow blending brush. Imo quite useless. I guess I’m not the type to use 457438 brushes for eyes… I prefer using fingers.
Eeeps sorry for the yellow lighting. I was so lazy that I couldn’t even stand up to switch on the other white light. LOL.
White Label spot corrector thingy..
Tbh after using this for a few weeks some spots (fresh from recent blemishes) did fade. Can’t give it all credit though cos I mask like crazy.
Had a zit one fine day so I decided to get rid of it. By using Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment Cream. This thing proved to be too potent for my skin.. My skin went red and rough just after ONE use. It went straight to the bin.
Be patient young padawans. There’s no escalators to success, only stairs. #anyhow
L’Oreal Youth Code Rejuvenating Eye Essence. My 2nd bottle. It’s lightweight and simply perfect to use before makeup and sleep. I hate slathering on heavy creams; makes the skin feel clogged.
I wanted to buy Estee Lauder’s eye serum initially but that felt the same as this L’Oreal one? Wtf. The price is almost three times more.
Sephora lip bag. Consists of 2 full sized and 3 minis.
I got it mainly for the mini Givenchy one (in the black box).
The middle one, NYX butter lipstick, is pure rubbish. Get it if you like the feeling of drying paint on your lips.
This deserves more attention <3
It is just so cuteeeee
Etude House Proof 10 Gelquid Liner. Touted to be gel+liquid liner into one. The formula is long lasting and pigmented which I love.. The thing that spoiled it is the texture. It’s thick and gloopy :( The brush applicator doesn’t help either.
I wish some brand will make a decent pigmented red liquid eyeliner in PEN form.
My previous Gelish nails. Most cute set I had so far hahahahaha
Yay back to normal lighting. MAC cosmetics lipstick in Sushi Kiss.
It’s a really, really, really nice colour. And I love the name of it.
This is my second Mac lipstick and my last. It’s waaay too drying oh dear :(
Lancome Mat Miracle 24H foundation. I had sworn off foundations since 2010 where I first discovered BB creams (Skin 79’s to be exact). But I realised I need one decent long-wearing foundation for important events. Not to be worn daily. I did not keep up with the releases of foundations but this Lancome one was raved by beauty bloggers again and again. And I trust those beauty bloggers. Only a few.
Verdict? I do like it overall. But would not repurchase. The finish is not overly matte but with a sheen. Pretty nice. I thought it was good during the Mayday F1 concert day cos I sweated buckets yet still looked decent at the end of more than 12 hours.
However, whenever I wear it out on normal days, my skin would oil up within 2 hours or so. WHY AH?? I do use a setting powder. Sigh…
I really need a POWERFUL oil-controlling base product. I hate feeling oily and greasy like cod fish whenever I’m out. :(
With that being said, the foundation is still pretty good. Quite long wearing.
Then I might as well just use the Innisfree BB cream hor? Lol.
Canmake Cover&Stretch Concealer. I use it daily that the wordings are all faded…
It lasts well through sweat and oil BUT the colour is off.
It does oxidise and when it happens, becomes slightly too orange and dark for me.
ATTENTION I AM LOOKING FOR A LONG WEARING AND OIL CONTROLLING CONCEALER TOO, IN A FAIR SHADE.
NO NOT AMAZING COSMETICS I AIN’T PAYING $65 FOR A CONCEALER
Inglot opened in Wisma Atria. So many new brands in Sg omg I’m getting dizzy and eggcited
I got only an eyeshadow. $12, which surprised me. I expected it to be higher… C’mon Mac’s single eyeshadow is $26! Different brands but I thought it’d be near that price.
The quality is impressive, especially for that price. All eyeshadows do not come with casings as there are customisable palettes available for purchase. I didn’t buy the single casing as it costs almost as much as the eyeshadow itself. And I wasn’t ready to splash more on the brand yet.
FERvEOR Multi-Plant Hair Solution. A hair serum. Want your hair to smell like it’s blow-dried in a salon? Get this. It has the “salon” smell which I LOOOOVE
Doesn’t feel greasy and heavy on hair as well. But bear in mind my hair is as dry as a lion’s mane
Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in RD306
The brand opened its largest flagship store in WISMA ATRIA. *sg pride* lolol
I went there today and was overwhelmed. Flabbergasted at how pink and fairytale-like the entire store is; complete with a huge dollhouse, life-sized princess carriage, photobooth, purikura machine, spacious makeup area, vending machines.
I’m not sure if a minimum spending is needed but I was given a bracelet with my purchase, along with a pink Etude House coin to be used for the vending machine.
The capsules in the machine contain a charm for you to fill up the bracelet. Very simple yet creative. Thumbs up to Etude House!!!
I don’t have the urge to fill up the bracelet, luckily.
Anyway I digressed
Swatch of the lippie. I’m in love. It’s darker than this tho.
Got a mini Color Pop lip tint for… guess… only S$4! Love the idea of minis cos we never use up lip products anyway.
Size in comparison to the lipstick
Yup I’m currently obsessing over such colours. FALL is arriving yo
My Beauty Tool powder brush.
I don’t own many brushes but had felt a lot of them before… The softest I thought belongs to Make Up For Ever’s brush line.
Until I touched this seemingly innocent Etude House brush.
My holy god, this is by far the SOFTEST brush I’ve ever seen and felt. Make Up For Ever’s brushes cost something like $90 each… I would never buy.
This Etude House brush costs $15.90. You’re welcome.
It made my Real Techniques brush feel so rough although it isn’t.
Seems like it’s the only brush to own this softness though. I felt the slanted contour brush and duo fibre brush and they are normal. Not scratchy, but nowhere near this level of angelic softness.
Cookie blusher in Peach Parfait. I use the puff to apply most of the time.
Left: Grapefruit Jelly
Right: Peach Parfait
I only like matte blushes.
Innisfree Jeju lotus hand cream. Smells like baby powder, fresh and light.
Not bad quite nice.
Okay ending with my cat. Bye!
