Meaning to post this 100 years ago.

Burberry Blush in Tangerine Blush
For awhile I was wearing this daily. It's a very natural, peach colour that gives your complexion a bit of 
warmth more than anything. It's completely matte and smooth as. The packaging is to die for of course. 
The brush is o-k but harder to get an even application. I wish the lid/ mirror could tilt back more, feels 
kind of awkard being stuck at a 90 degree angle. Haven't been reaching for it too much lately.

Beauty Blender + Nars Sheer Glow in Fiji
Ok, I love this little pink blob! First of all, it's so damn cute. The sponge expanding when wet is like a 
squishing a baby's adorable chubby cheeks [not weird]. It works really well at applying foundation - 
gives a really even, quick application and leaves the skin feeling somewhat fresh from the dampness of 
the sponge. The Nars Sheer Glow in Fiji is a good colour match for me. The coverage is medium but I
feel like I need to apply a lighter product on my cheeks/ forehead/ chin to prevent my complexion from 
looking flat. The finish is not matte, nor luminous but looks pretty fresh post application. Lasting power 
is decent with primer, makeup spray, setting powder on my oily skin. I do like it though, more than the 
Chanel VLA. But for everyday, BB is the best (spf).

Burberry Eyeshadow in Midnight Brown

Holy moly. The texture of Burberry eyeshadow is amazing. This particular shade is a medium brown 
with shimmers that doesn't pull reddish brown when worn [A+]. Better than Mac Satin Taupe.

Lancome Hypnose Drama Waterproof Mascara
It gives me thick, voluminous lashes instantly. Lasts pretty well, but I think cheaper mascaras such as 
Maybelline Falsies Waterproof and Maybelline Define-a-lash work just as well. Smudges a bit on 
bottom lashes. Damn good masacara but I think the Falsies is better for everyday makeup.

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams
This is like applying marshmellow on your lips - in terms of texture and scent. Amsterdam is a medium
rose pink which gives me a brightening effect [keeping in mind I have quite pigmented lips], while San 
Paulo is slightly deeper. It's really matte, which I'm a fan of, but it does dry out your lips after a while, 
leaving you with a weird sandpaper mouth. Fun product.

    1. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
      but rarely, because I find that product balls up if I wear this with SPF (Murad essential C day moisture)

  2. Do you have a skincare routine? your skin in the picture below looks awesome :p
