Hi everyone. This is going to be a collective haul makeup post that I accumulated in February. Some of these are giveaway prizes I won from TheGlamSurge.com that was delivered to me safe and sound all the way from Canada two days before I went back to university so thank you so much Nicole!
I was super stoked to receive this from Nicole as I’ve heard good things about Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighting palette. Moreover, we don’t have ABH in Sephora Malaysia so getting to own one of these is definitely a highlight (no pun intended)! This highlighting palette consists of one white highlighter and 5 warm tones highlighters that are super gorgeous and blind-in-your-eyes. I tried putting the shade Snow on top of my liquid lipstick and it’s super gorgeous! Will definitely be rocking that metallic lip if I have somewhere fancy to go.
PS: I didn’t want to swatch them at first ’cause they’re beautiful but I couldn’t help it I needed to swatch them lol
Lolita has got to be the most famous shade of Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick and to be honest I’ve had Lolita in my wish list since for ever and I always swatch it on my hand whenever I’m at Sephora. I put it on the moment I received the package from Nicole and it’s the perfect warm plum tone that looks brick red on different lighting. It’s hard to describe the shade but it’s one of those colours that will look great on every skin tone under the sun. The formulation is great, too. It’s very long-lasting and it doesn’t dry out my lips like most liquid lipsticks do. As long as you don’t eat anything greasy, then you damn well know that this will stay on forever on your lips.
So last week I went to Setia City Mall with my friend and she left me alone to go to other shops so I went to MAC, swatched a few shades on my hands, not really wanting to buy any lipstick. The SA approached me and I asked her if she could help me find Twig and a few other shades. She pulled out Yash and I swatched it on my hand but I thought that it would make me look pale ’cause it’s like a peachy shade, far lighter than Velvet Teddy. She said “you have to put it on first to know if it suits you ’cause Yash fits every skin tone” so I wiped off Velvet Teddy on my lips and put on Yash.
Holy freaking god, guys. It’s the shade I’ve been looking for since for ever. I’ve always wanted a really nude shade that looks like my skin tone but every other shades looked brownish nude on me which I’m fine with but I wanted nude nude nude. This is it. My search is over. I have found the ultimate epitome of my skin tone but better.
Drugstore brands have time-in-time prove to us that we don’t need expensive mascaras. Need a mascara that works? Head on to your nearest drugstore and choose one that you like. My housemate told me that this mascara works great and it was on buy 2 free 1 so we were paying 10 ringgit for this instead of 15. You may not like the formulation ’cause it’s very wet and you have to remove excess product on the bristle before coating your lashes or it would smudge and clump but for 10 ringgit, what do I have to complain? It works great. It’s clumpy if you have on two or more coats but some people may like that. They claim that it’s waterproof but I have no trouble removing it in the shower. I’ll definitely purchase this again once I run out of it.
This is a local product that is not available outside of Malaysia. My housemate’s aunt created this product called glitter foundation that literally has slight glitter in it. It’s buildable up to full coverage and you don’t have to set it with powder although you can if you want to. I can immediately put on my blusher and highlighter afterwards and the foundation will not move. It stays on all day long so you won’t have to touch it up. It’s a matte foundation but you can always use hydrating primer before using this foundation. You can refer my photo above to see how I look like with this foundation. I’ve been wearing this foundation every day to class and the good thing about it is it’s cheap so I won’t feel bad if I run out of it.
It comes in 3 colours; light, medium, and natural for 29 ringgit. If you’re interested to try this, just contact me and I’ll be happy to assist hehehe (self-promoting here soz).
