May 2016 Favorites


Wow , we are done with May already?! Lots of things happened in May both good and bad but I'm glad June is finally coming! Also Happy 1st Birthday to my blog!! :) Anyways, since I've been on a no buy, I really didn't purchase any makeup (well, except for IPSY subscription) so I don't really have any new makeup/ skincare favorite. I rediscovered some older favorites while I was decluttering/ documenting my collection. Starting this month I will also include my fav snack or lifestyle favorites in my monthly favorite posts. Let's get started.

[Collection] Part 3: All About That Face 2016


I hope you are enjoying my collection series so far. Part 3 of my collection continues to be about face makeup products, so this post will include primers, concealers, and powders. Let's get started right away!

(P. S. I added * to products I'm almost done with)


*1) Smashbox- Photo Finish Oil Free Foundation Primer

  • It's a pore filling primer, it works really well. It's just like Benefit's porefessional except this is completely clear.

*2) Avance+ Mattifying Emulsion- Pore Refiner

  • It smells awesome! I'm not quite sure if this is just skincare. I will reach for this when my face is dry and my pores are really visible.

3) MUFE- Step1 Hydrating Primer
  • This is great during winter when my face is extra dry, it prevents my skin from flaking without being oily
4) Estee Lauder- Matte Perfecting Primer

  • Like the name suggested, it's a mattifying primer. It is pretty hydrating though, it feels really nice on the skin. I don't think it actually mattify my skin through out the day.

5) Maybelline- Baby Skin Instant Pink Transformer

  • This is really different from all other primers I have, it's actually pink. It brightens up the complexion and has SPF. I also don't reach for this, I guess it doesn't really wow me. 

6) Estee Edit- Pore Vanishing Stick
  • My new favorite primer, it glides on so smoothly and fills up my pores. I included this in a couple of my favorites, you can check out my review there.
7) Chanel- Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base
  • Click here for my short review on this primer 
*8) Smashbox- 24 hour photo finish shadow primer

  • I find the formula quite thick. Nothing much to say about it because I don't usually put primer on my lids.


1) Maybelline Cover Stick

  • It is really creamy and coverage is really good. However, this shade does not match me that well, too light on me!

2) Bobbi Brown- Creamy Concealer Kit (Warm Ivory)

  • It is super creamy and has great coverage. It melts into the skin easily, I recommend applying this with your fingers so the product will melt into the skin faster and more even. Also, because it is a cream product so I make sure I set it with powder properly.

3) Cover Girl+ Olay- Eye Concealer

  • I don't reach for this product at all. The color is orange based which allows the dark circles to be covered easily. Other than that, I don't find this concealer too special.

*4) Rimmel London- Match Perfection Concealer and highlighter (shade 230 Fair/ Light)
  • My all time favorite concealer, and it is super affordable too!


1) Rimmel London- Stay Matte Press Powder (Translucent)

  • As you can see, the whole thing is beat up. The lid broke in half, the writings on the cover was rubbed off. The powder hit pan awhile ago, but till now I still can't finish it. The only thing I don't like is the packaging, other than that I love this powder!

2) Etude House- Dreaming Swan Veiling Pact SPF 25

  • Honestly, I bought this for the packaging. This is from the swan lake collection from Etude house. It's just a normal blotting powder nothing fancy.

3) ELF Cosmetics- Tone Correcting Powder (Cool)

  • Another powder I really like is this ELF tone correcting powder. It evens out my skin tone nicely, and the powder is pretty smooth. This was only $3!

There you go, all about that face! I hope you enjoyed this post, I have quite a lot of primers and I choose them based on the needs of my skin that day but I usually use pore erasing/ filling primers. As for concealer, my favorite has always been the Rimmel London one from the drug store. I finished at least 3 tubes, and every time I buy a new one the packaging changes. My favorite setting powders are also from the drug store, again Rimmel London and also the ELF powder. I've gone through 2 of the ELF powder already!

*Disclaimer: my makeup collection posts are not meant to brag, I wanted to document what I own and I was also requested to share. I know I have a lot of makeup, I'm trying to downsize and use everything I have, that's why I'm on a no buy!

May IPSY Glam Bag Unboxing


I finally received my Glam bag few days ago! This month, I barely saw any sneak preview of the products from IPSY's Instagram. I only saw a preview of what the bag looks like and I got so excited. Let's get started.

This bag is so unique. It looks like an envelope instead of the usual zippered makeup bag. I think the theme this month is about traveling so the pattern on the bag consists of famous landmarks. The bag comes in three different colors, mine is in the pink one. Super cute!

[Collection] Part 1: Eyeshadow Palettes 2016


This is Part 1 of my makeup collection. There will be a slight change to my collection posts, my original plan was to share my collection through brands. I then realized for many brands I actually only have one product each, so I decided to divide the post by categories now! Anyways, today is all about my eyeshadow palettes. It's going to be a short one, I don't have that many palettes but these are more than enough!

Urban Decay Naked 3

I think this might be my first high end palette! I just couldn't resist the beautiful rosey shades. The colors are so beautiful to look at but honestly, I don't usually reach for this palette :(

April 2016 Favorites

Happy May!

For the first time in forever, I actually feel like April was really long. I guess because I was really busy all through out April. Anyways, let's recap on the products I was loving during April.
