let’s just get this straight before we move on: i’ve never done haul or swatches blog before so i’m just gonna go through whatever that’s on my mind.
now. let’s take a look at my makeup storage.
when i rearranged the furnitures in my room, i made sure that i have some space for my makeup stuff, wide open and easy for me to grab whenever i want or need. i have loads of bb creams (which i’ve come to learn that they are no less than a tinted moisturizer =.=), brushes, setting powder, a couple of lipsticks, makeup remover; you name it. most of my stuff are supposedly ‘drugstore’ items, but when you convert USD to RM, it’s pretty much 4-5x the prices listed.
i took advantage of the sale tonight despite the fact that i don’t have much money (but boy if i did) left for the month…and it’s only been the first week. why? investment. and not a lot of patience left with the products that i currently have and forced to work with. MEH. just like any other girly girl, we tend to have our reasons to go around to get to what we “need”. lols
number 1. primer. working 12-14 hours a day means there’s a slight chance that your makeup is going to fade by the end of the day and you really don’t wanna look worse than you already are before makeup. good primers around here aren’t that cheap to get.
number 2. a foundation with the right shade and tone. i have BH Cosmetics’ Liquid Foundation in Golden Beige but it is apparently 2 shades darker than the picture on their website. my bb creams and in2it Sheer Natural Gel Foundation in Golden Beige are naturally 3x lighter than my skintone. i tend to mix around to get the closest match, but i have another problem; my face is tanned while my body is not, with massive yellow undertone. also my setting powder either has a slight pink undertone or it’s the whitening kind.
lyf is so hard. ALSO MY SKIN JUST WENT FROM OILY TO COMBO.
number 3. setting powder. problems have already been addressed.
number 4. brows. i took the plunge last week by tweezing my own brows based on ‘youthful look’ since you know, my rest face itself is a bitchy face. why not.
number 5. liquid eyeliner. i haven’t used one in ages. kinda need one to define my eyes a bit more for whenever i’m too lazy work with the shadows.
number 6. facial toner. i’m running out, basically.
so basically here’s the list of things i got:
- Revlon Perfecting Primer
- Revlon PhotoReady in Medium Beige
- L’Oreal True Match in Nude Amber
- Silkygirl Natural Brow Pencil
- Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner
- Maybelline Clear Smooth Extra in Natural
- Clean & Clear Oil Control Toner
i will do a first impression review if i’m not too busy tomorrow. it’s already midnight and i’m supposed to be up in 6 hours. ha. x
