August Makeup Haul

Hi everyone, how are you today? I went out with my boyfriend to IOI City Mall just now to watch Suicide Squad. Harley Quinn is bae, okay! She is so gorgeous despite her crazy ass attitude and horrible makeup. I did some makeup shopping after the movie and lunch. To be honest, I only needed two things though: a moisturiser and theBalm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter. but I couldn’t find Sasa anywhere! It’s frustrating.
I went to Watsons to get a moisturiser from Simple. I heard great reviews about this product especially because it is suitable for sensitive skin so I picked up Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. I have oily skin but for some reasons for the past few weeks, my skin has been so dry so I went with the hydrating one instead of the oil balancing.

At Sephora, I was looking for NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream because let’s be real: they are always out of stock but today is my lucky day because I think they just restocked because so many shades are still available. I got one in Stockholm. I tried it on at home and it’s the perfect nude for me!
I was about to go to the cashier when I saw the NYX Full Throttle Shadow Palette staring at me, pulling me to touch it. So what did I do? I swatched it and oh my, the pigmentation is really good! So I got one in FTSP05 Take Over Control.

Last stop: MAC Cosmetics. To be completely and utterly honest, I wasn’t planning to buy anything but I swatched Taupe, Velvet Teddy, Honey Love, Mocha, Kinda Sexy, and a few other lipsticks on my hand that I decided I wasn’t going to walk out of MAC without getting a lipstick. I got the Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy and oh I’m in love! I really wanted Taupe or Mocha but they are very similar to my MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Glamour Era. Honey Love is too pale and Kinda Sexy is too pink for me.

That’s it for this makeup haul! Please let me know if you want review + swatches of these products or any products that I own (check out my Beauty categories for more makeup posts.) I hope you enjoyed this post while I go cry in the corner because I’m broke.

  • I've been wanting to get that NYX lip cream since forever *hearteyes* but it's such an unfortunate that matte lip products doesn't work great on my lips~ Anyway, I was just wondering, what do you think about the Kylie Lip Kit?~

  • i think it's overpriced. the company/lab that produces kylie lip kit is the one who also produces colourpop liquid lipsticks and colourpop is much cheaper than the lip kit. i'd say instead of spending rm200 on a lip kit, go and buy the kat von d liquid lipstick, rm99 a piece! 🙂

  • Oh I never knew anything about Kylie's and Colourpop's products are being produced by the same company~ Thank you for that info!

    I did a little research just now, I don't think I'd suit KVD's colors for the liquid lipstick. My older sister could pull off most of the colors, but not me (I'm a bit picky about my lipsticks LOL)~ Thanks for suggesting btw! 😀

  • they're certainly daring, aren't they? maybe you should try buying from local brands first and see if liquid lipstick suit you, like FAME or LERVE cosmetics? plus, they're cheaper!

    sure tho! 🙂

  • OH I knew about those two brands! LOL I became so distracted by famous non-local brands I forgot about the local ones~ Thank you (again!) for that suggestion 😀

  • sure, shya 🙂

  • MAC Cosmetic totally make me loves them especially lipstick.

  • ikr! 🙂

  • I use that Simple moisturiser and I love it! Also I now really want the MAC lipstick, you've tempted me to get it! 😛

  • lollll i'm soo sorry 😛

  • I want to buy that color (Stockholm) too ^^

  • i love that color so much! the perfect everyday nude for me 🙂

  • I'm really in love with NYX lipstick. But I have dry lips, so I don't really think this lipstick is suitable for me. Hope one day I can buy some of them 😀

  • but they're not drying pun, you just have to make sure you put on some lip balm before applying 🙂
