New Skincare & Makeup Buys in April

New Skincare & Makeup Buys in April
New Skincare & Makeup Buys in April
April starts with some purchases; of things that have been sitting on my wishlist and things that I bought out of necessities. It left quiet a dent in my bank account but considering 3 of them are something that I will get sooner and later, and I was presented with chance to buy them with lower prices, I regret none of it.

Laneige Essential Balancing Emulsion; this is the new version of my holy grail moisturizer that I've mentioned in my latest empty post. It's simply impossible for me to  live without it at the moment with how many acne scars I have, I need to get rid of them fast and I don't feel like going in another trial-error with new products just for the sake of trying new product.

Laneige Essential Power Skin Refiner Light; is the toner from the same series with the moisturizer. This has been sitting on the back of my wishlist for so long, but for some reason, they're always out of stock in my country. My aunt went to Korea two weeks ago, and I managed to get my hand on this thanks to her help, it costed less than if I bought it locally, so I couldn't resist.

Laneige Clear C Peeling Mask; another thing in my wishlist is this peeling mask. I heard great things about Clear C range and its ability to bring brightness back to the skin. Out of all products they have in range, this peeling mask interests me the most. I haven't tried any peeling products before, so I thought I'd give this a chance. It has strawberry seeds that's supposed to help removing dead skin cells easily without being too abrasive.

Zoeva Caramel Melange Palette; I've been lusting over this palette for so long since it's release but they're always out of stock. When they're back online, I didn't think and just went straight to purchase it. This palette consist of 10 colors with equal amount of matte, shimmer. I can tell that Liquid Center is gonna be my favorite color.

April Makeup Menu

We're back with another installment of monthly makeup menu. April is gonna be a busy month for me and as much as I want to keep everything simple, I want to add pop of pink on to liven up my ashen complexion (hello, insomnia and sleepless night) and brighten up my mood.

The good coverage base; starting with foundation from Bobbi Brown which is the heaviest coverage base I have at the moment. This foundation feels incredibly lightweight and undetectable on the skin, it evens up my skin tone as well. The constant lack of sleep has me going back to Creamy Concealer from the same brand, nothing covers them better than this little pot of peachy-toned concleaer.

After patting Maybelline Fit Me powder to lock the base, I apply deliberate amount of Jill Stuart blush on the cheeks and swipe Burberry eye color in gold pearl along my cheekbones to further perk up my complexion.

Pink on The Eyes; on contrary to last month, I'm being creative with my eye makeup my incorporating some pink & red on the lids. Jill Stuart quad has this stunning pink with finely mild shimmer that's surprisingly pigmented. I pair it up with the chocolates from the same quad, but when I feel daring, I pulled out The Saem red eyeshadow for a touch of stark red on the outer corner.

Little Details; my love affair with eyeliner continues, especially after I bought one from local brand PAC. This black eyeliner is really easy to apply with its fine nib, but my only gripe is that this takes longer to dry. Jill Stuart brow mascara has been my go to eyebrow product lately after I run out of my Bobbi Brown's one. The formula is on the wet side, but it shapes my eyebrows lately with minimum effort. On the lips, I want to keep it simple with swipe of pink lip pencil under whatever choice of lipstick I make that day.

High End Skincare Wishlist

High End Skincare wishlist.
High End Skincare wishlist.
Stepping up my skincare game was my beauty goal in 2016. Now I've found the one formula that's perfect for my blemish-prone, oily skin, I feel like venturing into different brands and different types of skincare. There're so many lovely brands mentioned in my favorite blogs, and here a couple that have intrigued me most. Many of them are facial oils, because they do wonder in working through skins to improve its condition plus adding extra moisture and glow.
