blush

Good morning world =)

I’ve been trying a lot of different products for the last 6 months, trying to pin point what is going to become my everyday routine.  These products above has been the ones I reach for everyday, and I’m very happy with every single one.

1) Garnier BB Cream – I have been reaching for this “BB Cream” over my other foundations because it is super light weight and gives me the coverage I need for a daily foundation.  I wasn’t really sure about getting a drug store BB cream, as I’ve heard and read from some bloggers that it’s not as great as the Asian branded ones. BUT the western companies have really stepped up their game. (I’ve also tried the Maybelline one, verdict, don’t like.)

2) Urban Decay – NAKED – need I say more?  I have both NAKED and NAKED2 and I love them both.  I like to use the shade “NAKED” as an all over the lid, and “DARKHORSE” in the outer lid to give it some depth.

3) NYX (Bourgeois Pig) – I’ve been using this blush for a very long time. I always seem to come back to it after trying others.  It really looks nice with my skin tone (SUPER fair), so it gives me the perfect rosy cheeks ^^

4) Physicians Formula (Eye Booster) – LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this eyeliner. If you are a fan for liners with the thin paintbrush tips, you would love this also.  It has become my holy grail!! (replacing my Dollywink)  It does say there is a serum to boost your eyelash growth, but to be honest I cant see that my lashes have gotten any thicker or longer, that’s the only false hope you will get with this liner.  Other then that, it gives the perfect winged liner and super easy to use.

5) Milani (Abstract) – I’ve only recently started to use products for my eyebrows.  I’ve never seemed to be able to find a good colour for the brows only because I was constantly changing my hair colour.  But I have kept my hair my natural colour, which is dark brown/black. And one of the browns in the palette really works well for me. Its a powder so I do use an angled brush to apply. (any suggestions? I’ve also tried the “Kevyn Aucoin” – eye brow retractable pencil, its really good but $$$ expensive)

6) Maybelline Color Whisper (Who wore it red-er) – Current favourite lipstick.  Very moisturizing.  Very smooth.  Long lasting.  Everything I would want in a lip product. ^^

I also wear mascara, but its constantly changing.  What is your everyday makeup you reach for?

Question from Fairytales and Coffee =)

1. What is your favorite book? Anything mystery and thriller. I LOVE reading and most nights when I can’t get to sleep I would be reading a book to help me fall asleep.

2. Do you still read fashion magazines, and if you do which is your favorite one? If you don’t, why did you stop reading them? hmmm I don’t really anymore.  Unless it’s at a hair salon/doctors/dentist surgery in the waiting room.  I stopped because I tend to just read blogs adn watch youtube videos AND just buy whatever I feel comfortable wearing and looks good on me.

3. What is your biggest skincare concern? PIMPLES!! and dry flakey skin *shivers* I struggle with these two problems especially when the season is changing, and it makes me feel ugly. (>_<)

5. If you have to choose: Shakira or JLo, and why? JLo and I honestly don’t know why. Just because.  Shakira hasn’t made any hits recently and JLo has some pretty good songs out at the moment.

6. Favorite female or male model? Female-Mirander Kerr / Male-Tyson Beckford

7. Cosmetic brand you would take to a deserted island, and why? Sunscreen.  I don’t want to be crispy and peeling.

8. Cosmetic brand you would pull the plug on? (Bury never to be seen or heard from again). I honestly don’t know about this one… because a lot of brands have BAAAAAD products BUT they also have products that are also good… So I cant pull a plug on any practicular cosmetic brand… UNLESS!! people duped them.  Then its fake.  Not cool.

9. If you could only use one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why? Fake lashes.  They make such a difference with OR without makeup.  I love them.  I wish my natural lashes were like crazy dramatic and full. sighs..

NYX blushes

Has anyone else JUST realised that NYX blushes are good? lol.  I have only just finally decided to order online for these blushes after seeing alot of people using them online. 

I didn’t buy them earlier on because its such a hassel to have to buy things online and overseas.  BUT I am slowly getting better (or worse according to the Boyfriend) with shopping online YAY! ^__^

I love how these blushes are SOOO pigmented.  I love all the color choices that you can choose whatever shade that would suit you.  AND that its inexpensive!! omgoodness, I got these for $5-6ish?  LOVE THEM!!! 

I have two. 

        Natural (which gives the perfect natural flushed look for my skin tone)

     & Bourgeois Pink (VERY pink but i like it for a night time look).

There are so many others!! Which other one is a nice one?  I heard pinky is nice.  But its always out of stock ><

Rosie cheeks.

Rosie cheeks.  Its something that us girls would love to have naturally.  And to those you do, your so lucky !! The rest of us relies on products that gives us an illusion of it being natually rosey (.^___________________^.)

The product that I have again recently discovered through youtubers and bloggers, is the Benefit product, “Posie Tint”.  I can’t say I love it, as I still find it a bit difficult to use.  But I sure as I get more practice its going to be lovely. 

I wanna try the Bene Tint & Cha Cha Tint.  Any recommendations?

Early Birthday present from the Bestie ♥

Makeup brushes has always been something I always wanted to invest in but I never really knew which ones to get.  My bestfriend is also a very makeup/fashion person and so I always hear from her what is good and isn’t.  She has been telling me about the “real Techniques brushes” by Samantha Chapman (Pixiwoo sisters on youtube) that they are one of the best and very well priced for the quality.  I also have seen alot of reviews but have never been keen on getting them because I had to get them online. (I kinda don’t like purchasing online because of postage prices & shipping time)

So by now you properly figured that yes, my bestfriend got me some of the Real Techniques brushes (thanks TINA!!!!) ^_____^  They have only recently (pretty much as of last week) became available in Australian retailer “Priceline”.  Which is awesome because they are EVERYWHERE hehehhe.  These are the ones she got me :

I used it for the first time this morning and I have to say they are soooooooooooooooooooo much better then my old cheapy ones.  They pick up the pigments very well and also transfer onto the face so well.  I dont feel that I am losing product into the brush like some brushes.  AND they are super duper soft. I VERY much recommend these brushes =)
