I'm back! There has been a lot going on recently and I find myself distracted whenever I try to put up a blog post so I decided to wait for a while before plunging back in writing one up. I've been going up and down BSB almost everyday this week to sort out my medical check as well as attending a talk for those who are flying to Malaysia soon. The lady who gave us the talk works in the Brunei High Commission in KL and warned us about the dangers of living on your own in the city. She even gave us a few tips on how to be street smart which I think is very useful especially when you're on your own in the city!
Anyway, I haven't been buying a lot of makeup recently and that gives me the privilege of digging around my current makeup collection looking for something good to use.
Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream - I find myself reaching for this the most this past month. I noticed that the texture of this BB Cream is more of a gel than a cream, especially when you compare it to the regular foundation. If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know how much I love this. I tend to reach for this BB Cream a lot when I know I'll be out for a good few hours and wanted something that has medium coverage and a good amount of SPF for some protection against the sun.
Too Faced Eyeshadow in Glamazon - This is one of those eyeshadows that I don't ever use much and it'll just sit on my vanity for months on end which is kinda sad because it's such a beautiful color! Earlier in Jan I attended a wedding reception and while preparing I rummaged through my makeup palettes and saw this shade which is in the Too Faced Insurance Policy palette and thought it's the perfect taupe color so I used it that day... and many days after. It's a shame I hardly ever use this palette because the eyeshadows are good in quality and the pigmentation is great.
MAC Blush in Fleur Power - I've been reaching for this the most in January and I love it! It's by far the most pigmented MAC blush that I own. Not that I own a lot of MAC blushes, only a few actually lol It's one of those everyday pinky-peach blushes that you can use for any look you prefer. It's THAT good. If you've never own any MAC blushes and am thinking of getting one, I recommend Fleur Power!
Banana Republic Eau De Parfum in Wildbloom - If I'm not mistaken this fragrance was released just last year so it's fairly new. I'm a sucker for fresh and floral scents so this perfume is right up my alley! I am totally in love with thepackaging!! It lasts quite a while too, which is always a plus for me. It's definitely a day time scent but hey, who says you can't use it at night right? Top notes: Violet leaf, Red apple, Pear. Middle notes: Gardenia, Magnolia, Peach Blossom. Base notes: Teak wood, Sandalwood, Coconut, Musk
Catrice Absolute Eye Colour in Mr. Copper's fields - Okay, confession time. Recently Iseemed to be helplessly drawn to shimmery colors and this is no exception. Even though this eyeshadow looks similar to Too Faced's Glamazon, I swear they are totally different! Mr Copper's field is more of a copper-gold shadeand Glamazon is like I mentioned before, more of a taupe-y shade. Both are equally shimmery though!
The Face Shop Lovely Me: Ex Tint in Wineberry - I used to use this almost everyday when I'm going to classes on campus because you know how sometimes you'll have a full day of classes and you just get tired of reapplying lip stick/ lip balm. Wineberry is a gorgeous red color and the good thing about it is you can apply it lightly for a more natural look or you can layer them on for a more intense red on your lips. The best part is it stays on the whole day and saves me time and effort from reapplying the product. Also, a tube of this lip tint will last you forever!! The only downside is it tastes really bitter and I can't help but accidentally taste it whenever I apply the tint.
Revlon Photoready Concealer in Medium - I've tried a few concealers and in the end, I always go back to this. Even though it's in stick form, the concealer itself is surprisingly creamy and easy to blend. My sister uses this religiously as her under-eye concealer but I only use it to conceal spots on my face because I prefer something lighter in texture for my under-eye concealer. To each her own, right? For under eye concealing, I use the Garnier BB Eye Roll-on but apart from that the Photoready Concealer takes the spotlight! That's all for my January favorites! I wanted to include a few more but that would mean writing up an essay lolWhat were your January favs?
