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?

hello world =)

It has been awhile since I last posted something. I have been really busy with work and personal life. BUT I am back and I want to share with you ladies what I have been using and discovered for my lips.

| “NYX” soft matte lip cream – Istanbul | “Laura Mercier” Lip Glace – Bare blush | “EOS” lip balm – Strawberry sobert |

I’ve spoken already about Laura Mercier lip gloss in one of my previous posts. NYX lip cream has always been something I wanted to try. But like most american products its very hard to get because we have to purchase them online AND pay for crazy postage prices. I finally decided to buy a whole bunch of things from “Cherryculture” so I was paying postage for all them products in one go, so why not. =) I LOVE IT. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Very smooth and it doesn’t have the sticky feeling like you would with most lip glosses. I do wear it on it’s own. But when I want a little bit of a shine, I just use the LM lip gloss on top.

EOS. Nothing super great about this. I think its the packaging thats really cute and different, is where most of the hype is. It is moisterizing but its nothing any lip balm like “pawpaw” or “bertsbee” can’t do. I think its super cute and I want them all just because its cute… ^__________________________^ oh one negative thing.. I don’t really like the smell… I got the strawberry one and a honeydew one for my boyfriend and we both think they both smell a little similar with a hint of difference… if you know what I mean.

These three together has been really nice for me for everyday wear. EOS (moisture) > NYX (colour) > LM (gloss) Perfect combo! LOVE! OH! whats another nice NYX colour to try in the lip creams? or what are your fav lip combos?

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 ><
