October was all about going back to the same products everyday. As boring as this might sound, the items used are pretty revolutionary – well, sort of..
Where has the time gone? I mean, yesterday was June 1st. So many new favorites are standing on the front row of my vanity lately, here’s some of them.. Continue Reading…
Who would have thought that white polishes would be back in fashion? *raises hand*
March… You have sent me to, both, heaven and hell. I’m not going to complain though. I have fallen in love with quite a few things this month and that’s all that matters. Continue Reading…
Finally! A handful of interesting items that are worth labelling favorites. I’m very hard to please *flicks hair* Continue Reading…
I try to avoid high-end brands. They’re expensive and I’m broke. The basics. Naturally, we all love luxurious products and expect them to be good. Truth is, some of them are rubbish. Shocker. But then again, other pricey toys are simply outstanding.
Other than my five must haves, here are a few items that make me say I’m totally buying this again.
I personally think that no blush will beat Tom Ford blushes. The packaging itself makes you feel like the queen of Sheba. The formula is very buttery. The pigmentation is crazy. And the blendability is dreamy. You can’t ask for more. There aren’t that many shades in the permanent line. Nevertheless, they all look gorgeous. I have the shade Love Lust.
Chanel Chanel Chanel. The double C. The black and gold. The everything. Like our friend Mr. Ford, Ms. Chanel got everything right. For the lipstick lovers out there, the Rouge Coco Shine in Satisfaction is a must have. A go-to universal nude that can be thrown in the handbag but never forgotten. Yes, ladies. It is possible.
Then comes Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation. Although applying foundation during the summer is against the Zein laws, this product is worth the mention. It’s actually not a foundation. It’s more of a mask: full coverage and beautiful glow. Just make sure to shake it before using it and to set it after applying it. Other than that, enjoy the flawless finish!
And for the bold lip type of gals, this NARS combo will make you dream. The satin lip pencil in Yu and the Priscilla lip gloss are the perfect glossy fuchsia you’ll find on the market. I never go for fuchsias. Little did I know, they make my eyes look greener than emeralds. Truth. I’m definitely looking forward to trying out more satin lip pencils. And I’m in love with that simple statement packaging. Swoon!
Have you tried any of these products? What are your worth the splurge products?
I came to notice that there are exactly five products I can’t live without (hence the name of the post. Duh.) Even though I don’t use them all on daily basis, they are still necessary items to own.
Eyeliners. They’re hard to use and take time to apply. Well, for me at least. This is why I go the easy way by totally rejecting them on daily basis. However, I found myself using them a lot at the moment. Like, a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I love an eye look with liner but it’s such a hassle to put it on and take it off. I need to be mentally prepared in advanced for this process. A few eyeliners have made it to my top list at the moment.
Starting with Bourjois. They released a new line of eyeliners lately and I have the shades Ultra Black and Crazy About Brown. Coming from a drugstore brand, they are crazy pigmented, super creamy, very long lasting and waterproof. Love love love. I used that brown shimmery shade in my waterline for my graduation look (click here to see it) and it lasted a pretty good while. They also have crazy and fun colours in their line. Very interesting!
So it’s the end of a little two week holidays for me. I’m going back to school on Sunday with a load of exams waiting for me. I can’t wait for this year to finally end. I’ve used all my mental capacities by using and abusing my brain. Other than that, a few products have entered the love circle this month.
We have the new Nivea in-shower Body Lotion. I was supposed to mention this about, er, three months ago? Whoever came up with this concept is a pure genius and a very lazy person. I don’t know about you, but every time I get a new lotion/body cream I get excited about it for the first two days and promise myself that I’ll lather my whole body with it everyday. Of course, I never keep that promise because either I hate the sticky feeling of body lotions, I forget or I’m too lazy. How does this genius-ness work? After washing your whole body in the shower, spread this on the areas you want to moisturise and then rinse it off. Voila. Mucho easy and simple.
Have a lovely Friday 🙂
