After lathering up my skin in all sorts of potions and lotions to keep the wrinkles away (read part 1 here), these are some of the things that I have. Obviously I don't use all at the same time. That would make me look like a real cake plus I really don't have that skin level to pull it off *hangs head*. So let's start with the tubes and bottles first; from the left Benefit's Sun Beam highlighter which I quite love but I find that I have to put it on generously for it to actually have that highlighter effect. Next to it is my Smashbox Primer that I really love and absolutely sayang to use because I'm afraid that it'll finish before I can afford to buy it again. It really makes my skin feel like some nice expensive velvet that you just want to keep on stroking (cue image of 'Silence of The Lambs). I actually got it with the Smashbox tinted moisturiser as well but that is already long gone and finished. It really did work great together I must say. :(
In the middle we have the Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation (that is a freaking mouthful to say!). Bought it when I was still in Malaysia, I think it was sometime in December last year. Again, worked great there sucks real bad here. When I first started wearing makeup here and put on the foundation my skin was just literally peeling in patches all around my nose, chin, cheeks even forehead. And now it still clings to the dead skin around the nose area. I tried mixing it up with a bit if my moisturiser to, you know make it it a tinted moisturiser but still doesn't work. Conclusion, need to get a foundation for dry skin. :(
Next to that is the Maybelline Angelfit Concealer; which I really can't seem to find a link to it. Anyways, it works alright. That's all I gotta say about it. Hmmmmm. And the final product is Benefit's The Porefessional which works alright but I honest to God hate how it smells! I actually got both the Benefit products for free when I was still working back in Malaysia in the advertising industry. But anyways, I really really hate the smell of it to a point where I just stuck it in my handbag as an emergency primer so that I don't have to really use it! But now, it has found it's place back in my makeup bag thanks to this post, be grateful you smelly little tube you!
In the middle, is my Estee Lauder Double Wear Compact which I freeloaded off my elder brother (before I got married hehehehe). My elder brother had took my mom out to get her makeup refills and I got this and two lipsticks out of it. Again I realised that most of my things are either given to me or someone bought it for me. In that picture itself, I only bought the Body Shop Foundation and the Maybelline Concealer. LOL. I guess people just love buying stuff for me, or I have a pretty good puppy dog eyes impression. And that I am a cheapskate! Double LOL!
And that is actually all that I have boys and girls.
