[Collection] Part 7: Line 'em Lips 2016


We are almost at the end of my entire makeup collection. Phew...Okay for Part 7, I am sharing my lip liners collection. This post will be a short one but spoiler alert, next part will be the lipsticks. (it's going to be crazy!)

Marc Jacobs-Poutliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil ( Primrose 304  )
  • This is such a pretty nude/ pink color! The color is long lasting, it doesn't slide around on the lips. I find it a little dry when I apply it all over the lips, so I don't recommend wearing this on its own.

June IPSY Glambag Unboxing


It's our monthly IPSY unboxing! Again I barely saw any sneak peak from IPSY this month, all I saw was the pattern of the makeup bag. Let's get started!

Here's a picture of the bag...

Not a big fan of this month's bag, just too much for me...

Here are the products...

1. ColourPop Cosmetics- Crème Gel Liner in Swerve

The shade in Swerve is a smokey sultry black color. I haven't tried it on my eyes because when I tried it on the back of my hand it's not super black and it smudges. I'll have to try it on my lids to test out how it wears.

2. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge

I've always wanted to try this shade because it looks so cool! The color changes under different lighting. This shade in Lounge, has a reddish/ brown look and under some light it looks teal and green, the shade is pretty shimmery. However, like other urban decay eye shadow, the shimmer particle is not chunky but gives a really pretty glow.

3. Boo- Boo Cover-up Concealer

I don't know anything about this brand. According to IPSY, it can cover "Dark circles, bug bites, scars, wounds, acne and more" And that it has tea tree oil to help treat acne and reduce redness. Also the aloe vera and chamomile soothe your rough spots. I haven't test it out yet, but my first impression is not that great because it's wayyyyy to light for my skin tone. We'll see!

4. Seraphine Botanicals- Happy Hibiscus Blush

This is a pretty rose-y shade blush, with minimal shimmer. This is said to be constructed with 99% natural ingredient, the shade should be universally flattering and lasts up to 8 hours. I've only swatched this on my hand, but the color is so pretty!!! I'll put an update when I wear it on my cheeks and test out how long it stays.

5. BioRepublic SkinCare- Fiber Mask Set (Pomegranate crush and cucumber breeze)

I have nothing to say about the masks because I can't swatch it, so I'll update on here once I tried these masks.

Here's a swatches of the products. From left to right, urban decay eye shadow, happy hibiscus blush, Colourpop eyeliner, boo-boo cover up concealer (see how light that the concealer is!)

So far, I really like the fact that this bag is makeup focused, lately my IPSY bag contains more makeup! Sorry, this is really more of an unboxing. I have been super busy, and I just wanted to show you what I received in my bag but I haven't had the chance to try them out. I will add the updates after I test out the products. 

Yours Truly,

[Collection] Part 5: Mascara Collection 2016


Welcome to part 5 of my collection. Today I'm sharing with you my current mascara collection. I'm so surprised I have this many mascaras, I don't even use mascara that often. My struggle with mascara is that, my lashes are really soft and stubborn. My lashes fall back down after applying mascara. Even though it looks like I have a lot of mascaras, but I'm almost done with some of them here. Name with a * will be out of my collection within 2 weeks.

[Collection] Part 4: Bronzers, Highlighters and Blushes Collection 2016


Hmm...part 4...I actually do have way too much make up. I always know I have a lot, but when I take them all out, categorize them, and carefully go through the whole collection; I was really surprised and overwhelmed by how much I have. Through the process I discovered several products I totally forgot about. I encourage you all to go through your collection, take out expired products, giveaway products you don't use, you might discover some old favorites you forgot about. Okay, let's get started.

Bronzers and Highlighters

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer (in Park Avenue Princess)

Benefit Watt's UP
  • I'm not a big fan of this product, I find that it clings on to my dry patches. Especially on my nose where it tends to flake up, this product only enhances the look of the dryness. The color is beautiful tho, I just don't like how it applies on me.
Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam
  • I like this one more than the Watt's Up. It adds such a beautiful glow without looking shimmery/ glittery. It truly looks like a natural glow
Chanel- Lumiere Highlighting Blush (in 12 Coups De Minuit)
Smashbox- Step by Step Contour Kit

  • As you can see the contour shade on the very left has hit pan because I love it so much. I also love how natural looking the highlighter looks. Again, not glitters/ shimmers it just brightens up the area you applied it to. As of the bronzer in the center, I don't remember using it at all. I wish I can just purchase a refill of the contour shade.

Left to right: color pop-> Nars

Colour pop- Super shock cheek (in Fox)
  • Here's a link 1 to the posts I talked about this blush
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush (in Blissful)
  • By now you are probably familiar with Tarte's blushes. Easily blendable, last all day and with beautiful color. This one here is the newest to my collection and the formula is just the like otheres.
Benefit BeneTint
  • I don't really reach for this anymore. I find it hard to use on the cheeks as it dries too fast and often time it leaves a red/ unblended mark on my face. The color is really pretty and it smells really good, I prefer to use them on my lips instead of cheeks.
Chanel- Sunkiss Ribbon Blush
  • check out my review of the blush here
Chanel- Cream Blush (in 65 Affinite)
  • I'm sad that Chanel discontinued their cream blushes. This shade is so natural as it gives the illusion of your natural blush after a work out or being in the cold. A little goes a long way with this formula but it can be blended out really easily, so don't worry if you accidentally put on too much. 
Nars Blush (in Orgasm)
  • This is supposedly Nars best selling blush. I have to say, I agree, the color is gorgeous. However,  I hardly use it because it is super glittery, I can't handle it!
That is all for the part 4 of my makeup collection. As you probably noticed, my most used from the bronzer/ highlighter categories are the Smashbox step by step contour kit and the Chanel highlighting blush (actually a highlight) and my most used blush has to be the Colour Pop blush.

*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!
