I don't usually write monthly favourite posts because A) I don't change my favourites that often and B) my monthly favourites aren't that interesting, compare to some bloggers. Anyway, I feel like some of my beauty items deserve a show off ~ Today I am showing you my current beauty products.
I find it annoying having to touch up during the day with the little sponge MAC included in their oil blotting powder, so I purchase an Eco Tools Rectractable Kabuki Brush from iHerb and I have been loving it ever since the purchase. I love how it has a cap to protect the bristles being damaged and or getting dirty and the brush is small enough to store in any handbag. It's very handy and I also love how soft the bristles is.
I like to switch my foundations around during the week, but I haven't gone a few days without using my favourite foundation of all time: MAC Pro Longwear Foundation, I wear the shade NC25. My favourite things about this foundation is it's long wearing for me and it gives a full coverage without making me look cakey or feel heavy. One pump of the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation is enough for my whole face, I sometimes apply with a Beauty Blender or xoBeauty's Flat Top Synthetic Face Brush from Shannon Harris' beauty line.
On days that I don't feel like wearing full on makeup, I like to use theBalm BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer instead of a foundation. I have only purchased this BB cream early July and I have used it at least twice a week for nearly four weeks, right now it is giving me such a good impression. I have previously tried other non Asian brands BB cream such as Maybelline and L'Oreal and I feel like they are nothing compared to theBalm's tinted moisturizer. I wear the shade Light / Medium and it's a perfect match for NC25!
Remember my Etude House Lock n' Summer collection haul in mid July? I did a few swatches of the Etude House Lock n' Summer Cushion Blusher and I was disappointed as it hardly shows up on my skin. Few other bloggers were having the same problem so I thought it must be the cushion form fault. Anyway, I tried it on my face and instead of not showing up on my skin at all, it actually gave my cheek that natural flush. There's two shades of this blusher, coral and pink. I have the pink one and when applied on my cheek, it appears as if I have just came back from a run.
For the past few months I have been using Benefit's Porefessional Primer, but it's now finished :( *Boo Hoo* time to buy myself a full size maybe?! I have since been using the Dr. Young Anti Pore Pore Eraser which I have received in my MemeBox makeup edition. I love how smooth the pore eraser made my face feel and my foundations / BB cream always goes on smoothly after. I don't wear makeup in the weekend, but I always wake up with redness around my nose area, I would then apply a thin layer of the Dr. Young Anti Pore Pore Eraser to minimise the redness and the big pores.
I have seen people around carry these tubes of Lucas Papaw Ointment every where with them and I never knew what's the big deal?! No one talks about this products but everyone has one and everyone carries one with them in their bags. Okay, okay ~ By now you would've know I am always late on everything, late on finding out new products or even products that are not new. So when my mom bought me one of these Papaw ointment, I refused to keep it! LOl, who would have known I turn out to really, REALLY love it! It seems like Lucas Papaw Ointment always comes to the rescue when I am in trouble, for example: when I accidental cut myself or when it's freezing outside, I have super chapped lips and I forgot my lip balms.
Model Co Shine Ultra Lip Gloss is my absolutely favourite lip products of all time! I find myself grabbing for it everyday, even on days that I am not wearing any makeup.
Ever since I have learn to use a bronzer properly, I haven't stopped using a bronzer even thou it's winter at the moment. So... I am proud to say... I am an all-year-bronze-girl?! LOl, still pretty yellow haha! I have previously used NARS Laguna, but lately I find myself grabbing for Benefit Hoola Bronzer more than any other, so yeah, Benefit just made it into my FAV!
This monday I have done a first impression post of Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm and I haven't had it for long but I love how moisturizing it feels on my lips! I have been loving and using Comfort Clear - the clear lip balm on a daily basis.
Was it Nicole Guerriero who raved about the L'Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter? I am not sure... I bought this highlighter due to some raves from a well-known beauty guru and I remember the Youtuber as Nicole, cause she loves her L'Oreal products and she's one of my most watch Youtuber. Anyway, like I said I have bought the highlighter based on some great reviews and I have been loving it myself as well! I like to apply this under my eyes to brighten up and cover my dark circles.
Last but not least, The Body Shop Lip Scruff! Before I purchased the Body Shop lip scuff, I have been using the Lush lip scrub in a little jar, while I love the yummy taste, I did not enjoy a thing about having to dip my fingers into the jar, I thought it was gross. I was hoping to find something... like a lip scrub in a tube and I did YAYY! I love this lip scruff but don't love the overpriced price tag >.<
