Soooo. I’ve totally missed October and November 2014 favourites. I went back to working life and I didn’t expect to be home that late and the need to work on weekend as well. For the past one month, I’ve totally missed all the usual blogging schedule. I’d be lying to you if I tell you I didn’t panic. I did. I tried adjusting my life back to blogging but I really couldn’t find the time. There was so much to do and catch up on weekend. I didn’t even have the time to take photo for the blog. It is a tough time for me so please bear with me for a little while more. I want to thank each and every one of you for the never ending support and love. You girls rocks! <3
Since I missed October and November 2014 favourites, I thought it only make sense for me to post up December 2014 Favourites sooner than expected otherwise I’d miss it again. This month is all about the eyeliner pencils. It really is. Until I started to dig out my other favourites to balance out the eyeliner pencil overload LOL.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Flat Steel Palette (Large)
I’ve been wanting a mixing palette for quite some time. The one I wanted is MAKE UP FOR EVER but I always thought it’s expensive. I knew Inglot have it too but I don’t want Inglot’s lol. I think of this day and night and even dreamt of it (see, I think too much) and so one day I emailed the lady at MUFE to ask for the price. To my surprise, she told me the small one cost RM20 while the large one cost RM25. I bought the large flat steel palette and I think I will be going back for the small one. Actually the large one is just perfect. I have a room to hold the palette, to swirl my foundation brush on a section, another section for eyebrow gel and so on. I’m just itching to get the small one as collection 🙂 . I’ve been using this everyday since I got it. I never use the back of my hand for foundation or for any makeup product anymore.
Small Glass Container
You see this coming didn’t you? 🙂 . This container is also something that I’ve wanted since the first day I step into SSF. The price tag? RM79.90! It’s crazy expensive although I think member price is RM69.90? I can’t remember. It is still expensive. I’m glad I hold on to not purchasing it because this container was on sale for RM39.90 (members only) from 10th Oct until 2nd Nov 2014. I couldn’t make up my mind if I want to purchase it and finally I drove to SSF Puchong on the last day and grab one. I’m glad I did because it is so pretty. I used this to keep all my cosmetic cotton bud because the larger container that you see on the back is too heavy to be lifted up everyday. I might risk dropping the lid and broke it hehe. The container is so shiny that my camera just couldn’t focus on it. Sigh.
Guerlain Météorites Wulong Exceptional Pressed Powder
Despite owning four Guerlain Meteorites product at the moment, I don’t use it very often now as I’m constantly rushing out the door and this step is not so important. However when I’m feeling luxury, I’d reach out for this pressed version instead. I saved a lot of time swirling the brush into the can because this pressed powder doesn’t require much effort in getting the product onto the brush. Wulong is actually more shimmery than the rest I own so a quick dusting is all I need. I also happen to like this more. For some reason I see a better result as to compare with others.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes, Stila Smudge Stick & Wet n’ Wild Coloricon Brow & Eye Liner
It’s all about eyeliner pencils for me this month. I don’t have the luxury to do liquid eyeliner so pencil is a quicker solution for me. I have a Stila Smudge Stick but I sort of messed up the twist mechanic and wasted the whole lead so I have to get new one. I bought a set of Stila Flawless Gems Smudge Stick Trio and a set of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes Duo Set that comes with two 25L Matte Brown. I absolutely love all of it! I never imagine myself liking eyeliner pencils this much until I bought five at one go. When Wet n’ Wild is made available in SaSa IOI City Mall, I went to take a look and bought the Coloricon Brow & Eye Liner in 655 Charcoal. I thought the shade is like the ZA Ever Brows and it turns out too dark for my brow so I’m using it mainly as eyeliner and to line my upper waterline as well as in between lashes.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
Yeap. I finally gave in to the much talked about Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. I was waiting for Net-a-Porter to re-offer free express shipping and finally it came back on Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale. This blush palette was retailing for USD68.13 but I paid USD61.94. Probably due to the sale event. After convertion, the palette cost RM215. Ouch! The palette is quite small. Each blush pan is even more smaller than expected. However I do admit it’s way worthy to get this than the single that’s retailing for USD45. What’s funny about this palette is that I always always always over applied it. I do my makeup in a dark room at 6am in the morning so I can’t really see anything and kept on applying. What I’m amazed is, eventhough I over applied the blush, I still look good and glowy. It also gave me a cheek line. What’s not to love right?
MAKE UP FOR EVER 124 Powder Kabuki
I have had this kabuki for a few months now and it’s sitting in my drawer since then. This kabuki is specially designed to work hand-in-hand with MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Powder. I finally bought a full size MUFE HD Powder from Zalora’s 12.12 Online Fever sale so I happily took the kabuki out, gave it a good bath and used it with the powder. It’s AMAZING. So soft, doesn’t remove the foundation that was on my face and it doesn’t need a lot of product to work on. Why do I took this long to use it eh?
That’s my December 2014 favourites! Oh well it actually contain a bit of October and November as well. I do have more products that I’ve been enjoying but I plan to review them so I didn’t include them here in the favourites. November and December is also the busiest month for us beautyholics as most of the holiday collection and value set is out. What have you been loving recently? I’m trying very hard to forbid myself for buying too much. It is really hard. I managed to deter from buying a few as of now. I can’t guarantee I can stay this way for long haha 😀
