Roughly about 2 weeks ago, for the first time in my life I had allergy attack on my lips. Yeap. My lips. It is not as sexy as Angelina Jolie as my friends said it is. It is so swollen, dry, tight and awfully painful. I quicky found out that the cause to the allergy attack was the Pearl Drops Professional Intensive White Toothpolish. Who would have thought! Toothpaste causing allergy. I do know I am allergic to some whitening products. But toothpaste? This is the first time.
For someone who love liquid matte lipstick, lip exfoliator is a must to do everyday before putting on the lipstick. As much as I need lip exfoliator, I am not someone who would will spend RM80+ for one from Sephora. If I need to pay that much, I might as well DIY myself at home using sugar grains and honey 😉 . I have had my eyes on ELF Studio Lip Exfoliator for quite some time at iHerb. I never get to buy it because it is always out of stock.
When Chu Lip Lip Balm was launched last year, I had the opportunity to try it and review it. It is one of the most cute and fun way to apply lip balm. It is also my staple lip balm right before my makeup. When I hit the pan on that particular Chu Lip lip balm, there I was standing in front of my vanity table scratching head trying to figure out if I have any other lip balm at home and if not what should I buy.
Nowadays who on earth have the time to put on lip balm, then lipstick, followed by a lip gloss after spending a few hours on the face and eyes? NO ONE. By the time I am about to put on a lip product, I am pooped out. I always reach for anything near me rather than really spending time on it. I am a firm believer of applying a lip balm before a lipstick all these while, until I find that the oily surface moves my lipstick around.
Beauty enthusiasts will certainly understand when I say we go through product phases. Sometimes we are into foundation, sometimes blush, sometimes highlighter, at times it is bronzer, and the most frequent kick is lip product. I am not exceptional either. I have been on lip product kick at the moment. I am on a weird phase where I have been buying and collecting lip product for no reason.
As someone who prefer to slather generous layers and layers of skincare before bed, sleeping mask is not necessary for me. Although I buy sleeping mask occasionally, I always chuck them under the ‘use when remember’ category. I know, I know. I should have stop buying but whenever something new came up, I was itching to own them. Over the recent weeks I notice that I’ve been slacking on skincare at night.
