This Month’s

Most Used
Another month, another set of products I’ve found myself reaching for more than others. Quite ironic that my go-to look this month was a bold lip (or a neutral one but yah, focal point was them lips) yet I’ve no lip product in this list. It’s ‘cos if I put which ones I loved – this’ll turn into a novella. So yes, keeping those favorite lip products at the moment for another post. On to the non-lip products, then!
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Foundation*. I’m quite in love with the formula – a creamy foundation that spreads like velvet and finishes off semi-matte. No dewiness, coverage is medium, a little skin still peeks through. I like that even if my face is quite dry sometimes, it applies smoothly still. Downside is if you apply too much, it can cake and will accentuate lines (just recently realized admitted to myself I already have a laugh line). See it worn in this FOTD.
Tom Ford Orchid Haze. Resurrected this palette from my stash and I’ve been enjoying using it in big occasions like my grandmother-in-law’s 75th birthday celebration down to running errands (bank, grocery, maybe while cooking too haha). This may officially be my favorite non-brown neutral ever.
Benefit Majorette*. Found myself constantly reaching for this because blush isn’t something I thoroughly plan out to wear these days. I’ve been playing up my lipstick shades these days when I go out that I don’t even bother with eyeshadow and blush so for those times, Majorette is the default choice. Its faint pigmentation isn’t overpowering so it always seems to complement whatever lipstick shade I’m wearing.

Ellis Faas Concealer*. As I type this, I’m feeling major panic because I think I’m running out of this concealer too fast. I’ve been using it every single day and I realized more and more how good it is. The peach tone cancels out my dark circles so I can skip any kind of corrector when wearing this. Plus the coverage itself is medium so for blemishes and undereyes, I’m (literally and figuratively) covered. I be repurchasing this fo sho.
Chanel Le Volume Mascara. What kind of sorcery is this? My lashes seem to love this expensive tube of mascara. This was a random purchase from a Chanel haul months back – and ugh, I hate that I like it. It’s definitely not sustainable. But it volumizes my lashes beautifully – and not in a spider-scaringly way. It doesn’t smudge nor smear even if I rub my eyes accidentally and it’s easy to remove – not as stubborn as other waterproof mascaras. Outrageously priced for a mascara, though. But I love it (UGH, can’t believe I’m saying that).
Chloe EDP. I’ve finished 2/3 of this and I’m sad. I love the floral scent (and this is coming from someone who can’t STAND florals!) – fresh, not overpowering, a dash fruity and overall feminine. I hate describing scents (so frikkin’ hard) so I’ll just leave this at that. Haha!
Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner (not in photo because it’s in my bag which I left in my husband’s car). Good lord, I think I’ve found a new favorite liquid eyeliner – one I’m sticking to and will repurchase over and over. Heroine Make’s dries to an almost matte finish and does not run or tug on the lids. SWEAR. It applies so frikkin’ evenly – absolutely no tugging! The downside though, is you have to be precise, else you can easily go thicker than you intended. I want to give all my eyeliner-loving friends a tube of this!

I’m all set for the novella! 🙂 I haven’t tried any of your faves my list of things is going to be so long by the end of this year it’s not even funny! 😛

Still writing the novella, will finish it asap :)) LOL! Divs, if we’re gonna try each other’s faves – that’s dangerous territory! Haha! You’ve shared so many products I want to try as well!!

Ah Tom Ford Orchid Haze….so beaut! I wasn’t a massive fan of the Chanel mascara-only because I remember it being very wet despite really plumping the lashes. I love Chloe perfume!

Ahhh yes, it does tend to be very wet when it’s new. But I like that when it’s been opened for quite some time, a month or so maybe, it’s not as wet anymore. In fact, the consistency is perfect! My lashes don’t get weighed down and it really volumizes without looking spidery 🙂

I have yet to try benefit Majorette and I will take a sniff of Cloe. I also don’t like florals but I am attached to My Burberry at the moment, which is plain floral lol,

Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:07 pm

I think you’ve shades just like Majorette Sara! But the formula is nice – worth a swatch! 🙂 And Chloe!! Ahhh, I’m repurchasing it asap! I’ll take a sniff at My Burberry – I’ve been curious since it launched. Hope i like it!!

Oooh. That Tom Ford palette! <3 I am still undecided if I'd get Cognac Sable or not. I found one seller that's selling her preloved one for a really low price. And Majorette looks so pretty. Will be waiting for your lippie post! 😀

Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:08 pm

If it’s for a ‘really’ low price – go for it! Although warning, it’s quite hard to wear. I find it difficult to pull off without looking “cheap” 😐 BUUUT we have different skintones (from what I remember after seeing you in H&M!!!), you’re lighter so maybe you can pull it off better 🙂

Ahh Orchid Haze! Still regretting not picking that one up last year when I had the chance. For the past month, Burberry Gold Complete Eye Palette, the mini Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks, Bobbi Brown Black Scotch, and NARS Iberico/Cruella/Yu have made the most impression 😉

Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:09 pm

This comment is so DANGEROUSSSS. What a tempting post. Please Sunny, don’t do this to me 🙁 Haha. The Burberry Gold Complete Eye Palette.. My heart cries! I WANT IT. I’m glad you’re enjoying the LM Caviar Sticks – I LOVE THOSEEE!

Alison December 5, 2014 at 8:13 pm

I’ve been so on the fence with that Burberry palette. I really want it for the two cool shades which are unique to the palette, but I know the warm ones won’t get any wear. I should find a warm toned person who feels the opposite and trade the shadows.

Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner is my favorite too aside from Majolica Majorca 🙂

Reply
Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:10 pm

DIBA!! And I’m not usually wow-ed with liquid eyeliners na – having tried a few that I feel are all the same. Nagulat ako sa Heroine Make, hindi nagttug at all and super even ng pigment although a bit wetter than other liners. BUT THEN it sets to a matte finish so okay lang 🙂

For some reason your photos of make-up make me feel like I’m watching some sort of food porn haha! I don’t know if that even makes sense XD Thanks for introducing me to these brands; I’m not much of a makeup person so haha!

Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:11 pm

AWWWW thanks Aileen! 🙂 What can I say? Makeup porn turns me on. BWAHAHAHAHA :)) Looking forward to your European cosmetics post 😉 *NO PRESSURE*

I love the marjorette blush too! I carry a chloe rollerball with me, it’s a flower scent that I find more refreshing and welcoming rather than off putting!

Reply
Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:12 pm

Right?! I doubted my disgust for off-putting floral scents with this one. :))

Ah, Orchid Haze has been on my wishlist for ages! Curious to try that Clinique foundation too 🙂

Reply
Shari December 5, 2014 at 5:14 pm

Ahhh I can’t even explain my love for the foundation – it’s super lightweight even if you put on a lot, which can happen since the nozzle can disperse quite a bit more than you need. NOT CAKEY AT ALL! And the finish is beautiful. Matte but smooth and velvety.

I hope so too – something different though and not the usual pinky peach!

That masacaraaaa. I can’t bring myself to shell out the money for it. Unless Chanel suddenly decides to have a 50% off sale… In my dreams. 🙁 I have been loooooooving the Love, Chloe perfume. Such an amazing scent. I spritzed it on once and it lasted me 3 days! (I showered in between)

Kristen / Glambunctious December 22, 2014 at 8:10 am

Yay! Soon your Chloe will join mine in the world of Empties magique! It is such a nice fresh floral scent, not remotely overpowering or feminine, just clean and pretty. I hate describing scents too, lol!! And how dare your lashes have such expensive tastes?! How dare they! 😉 Just kidding – they know what they like, and they like Chanel. Bad news for the wallet! I ADORE these photos! They are so gorgeous!!
