It is FEBUARY already! *disbelief*
I thought I will give an update on some recent stuff which I have been loving lately. Not really full reviews, but a few quick points about each item. Some are old products, and some are recent additions.
Collection2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer 01 FAIR
I can see why this product is so highly raved in the UK beauty community. Really deserves the hype! I have been testing this under my eyes lately, and it is quite amazing (I mean to just brighten up the undereye area, since the shade isn't really a undereye corrector shade).
- Brightening Effect
- Lasting throughout the day
- No creasing even though used under the eyes
- Gives awesome coverage, thick but easy to blend out by dabbing over my skin
Illamasqua Skinbase SHADE 04
- A little goes a long way, flawless finish
- Need to buff buff buff!
- Smells nice, lasts the whole day
- A little shiny though I can put up with it, and just blot my oily T zone.
The following are items which I keep grabbing for when I do my makeup everyday.
Loose Powder - CHANEL Ultra Fine Translucent Loose Powder
This loose powder is different from my usual CHANEL translucent loose powder (which comes in different shades) it is like the HD version of a loose powder, ultra fine, much like the MUFE HD powder. I was just trying to rotate my loose powders, and decided to use it more often.
Highlighter - Cle de Peau Vintage Palette III
I like to dust this powder all over my face. It smells awesome, and gives a faint nice glow.
Chanel Extrait de Gloss in Genie and Glossimer 287 I think the name is Morning Aurora? I layer them together, and the color is just a very natural slightly orangey pinky shade. It is creamy but not sticky.
Revlon Lipbutter Creamsicle
Great pale shade which is still wearable.
Soap & Glory blush, Dior awakening blush
Jo Malone Nutmeg & Ginger - Clean, not too spicy,
SpaRitual Nail Polish remover, lint free cotton pads
Nails Inc topcoat and basecoat
Makeup Remover: I purchased 2 bottles of the Hada Labo Hydrating Makeup Remover at Watsons when they had a promo, heard great reviews about it. I think it is great for removing my daily makeup of Foundation, Blush, and any little eyeshadow etc. If I have full face makeup, I would still reach for my Shu Uemura or Fancl oil cleansers.
