What's up everybody!
So I thought I'd stop by my own blog and do a little haul post XD Just finished an exam and I'm so exhausted. 8 hours of sleep in two days O_o I'm too old for this man... but anyway I'd be happy to use this time to take a nap before I have to study for yet another exam, but I'm cranked up on caffeine =_=.... so yeah =T Might as well do a little blogging while the effect of caffeine wears off (my life nowadays is just school school school... or it's always been like that?!??? lololol but anyway sorry if my intros are always so boring)
As the title stated, I have a collective haul to share :D some of the items are not in the original packaging because I've had them for a while. I just realized that everything I showed here were purchased from the Internet... so busy these days to go shopping. The only physical shopping I do nowadays is grocery shopping XD
Here's everything ^_^
I'm slowly being converted to BB creams... especially after I went to Boston. I found that in any extreme/harsh weather (like humidity in Taiwan, and WINDINESS in Boston OMG it's like you don't know what windy is until you've been to Boston), BB creams just do so so SO much better than foundations. I couldn't wear my liquid foundation while I was in Boston cuz it just gets too dry and caked up.
I purchased another SKIN79 BB cream :D this time the Prestige BB cream from the Diamond collection. I have a sample size of this so I already know this is a BB cream I will enjoy. I was tempted to buy a SKIN79 BB compact but I decided to branch out and try out the HANSKIN one. First impression was O__o it has a very unnatural orange tint to it??? Like skin color gone wrong. Haven't used it much so can't say how well it performs. We'll see. Also got a BB cream from Pore Lab that claims for sebum control. So far only used it once and aside from the fact it gives more of a semi-matte finish (rather than SKIN79 which gives dewy), it does nothing in sebum control. Will test it out more but I'm already considering putting it on blog sale XD
Also got a sample size Dr. Jart+ black label BB cream =DDD So excited to try this one! Been dying to try it ever since watching StyleSuzi use them. But could never really bring myself to buy it cuz the price is quite hefty for a BB cream. Now I can try it to see if it's worth the money ^_^
The Pore Lab thingy on the upper left corner is supposed to be a product that helps to extract blackheads without harsh extraction (like squeezing XD). Honestly I'm not a believer in products like this but I decided to give it a try. Gonna use it tonight to see if it's a dud or if it actually works. And lastly there's this mask that I got as a free gift.
Next I have the Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliners
I am SO FREAKING EXCITED to try these out!!! I stumbled upon MszJackieChu's video and she talked about how these are exactly the same as MAC LiquidLast, and MAC LiquidLast being the only eyeliner that ever works on her------> Which is the same as me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I was super excited especially in light of the fact MAC LiquidLast in coco bar which is my holy grail has been discontinued. Hopefully they will work on me too >_< if not... well... I could use them for upper eyelid *shrugs*
Then I also got the Olay Regenerist products, after reading Bubbi's rave review.
How come mine looks even different from the Internet pictures she posted??? oh well. Haven't used the eye serum yet. Have used the micro-lifting serum 3 times and had to stop because my skin was reacting to it. I'm pretty sure it was this product because it was the only different product I was using, although I did wonder if I was layering too much products. Now my skin has recovered I'm gonna give it another shot to be sure if my skin indeed doesn't like this XD But anyway first impressions of the micro-lifting serum... (aside from breaking me out) I like the texture, but man I REALLY DISLIKE the smell. It's very overwhelmingly fragranted X_X I cringe every time I apply it on my face. It smells exactly like Pantine shampoo -___-|||| Even if it doesn't break me out I don't think I will repurchase just for this reason. Way. Too. Over. Powering.
Lastly I have these Josie Maran products: the Argan Oil, the Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation, and the sunscreen.
I will do a fuller review on these. But it probably won't be for a while because although I've been using the serum foundation almost everyday for over a month I'm still kind of unsure whether I like it or not??? XD lol what the hell right I know I know. I LOVE how Josie Maran has the smaller travel sizes for the argan oil and the sunscreen, so I was able to really test them out for reasonable prices ^_________^ big props to that.
And non-makeup/skincare related products XD I finished my 30 day shred workout so I purchased more so I can alternate my routine more. Will share my thoughts and results on the 30 day shred in another post.
At last... because I haven't shown my face in a while XD
This was taken a while ago when I did my Jiyeon's cry cry video tutorial. I guess I didn't post any camwhore pics because I already did that in the other post? XD
LOL my bangs have really grown out since then XD
Actually they aren't that long. They look longer in these pics because I was parting my hair differently that day. Was also wearing eye shadow for lower eyeliner for a change. Usually I don't use eye shadows as eyeliners because they usually don't stay on me, primer or not. But I might have found a way around it, I have to test it out more. We'll see ^_^
That's all ^_^ Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog ^_^ I'm off to take a nap now. Or maybe just roll around for a bit if I still can't fall asleep XD
Take care everyone!
