Face

1. Tarte Timeless smoothing primer – $ 39

With big pores like mine, this primer is the best choice for pore filling and create a smooth canvas. Smashbox Photo Finish is also a good choice.

2. CoverFx custom cover drop – $ 44/ Nars All Day Luminous Foundation

With my combo oily skin, I’m a huge fan of light-weight foundation and these two work very well for it

3. Laura Mercier Transluscent Powder –

4. Too Faed Chocolate Soleil Bronzer – $ 30

5. Too Faced Love Flush Blush / Becca – $ 26

I love the formula of Too Faced blush, it’s soft and pigmented but it’s buildable so you can layer it up without making you to get clown face easily.

EYES

6. Tartelette in Bloom / Anastasia single shadow

7. Kat Von D trooper liner / UD glide on pencil liner – $ 20

8. Benefit Roller Lash – $ 24IMG_5097

LIPS

9. Mac lipstick – $ 17.5

FINISH

10. Mac Fix+/Urban Decay – $ 32

Total $ 311.5

Well Guys, I know the total price of this kits is pretty steep, but it’s the quality that matters, right? Besides, most of the items here are the type of product that doesn’t require much to use for every application. You can also mix some items with the drugstore stuff. If you want to know which item that I prefer to get from the drugstore, check my previous posts.

What do you think, Pretties? Do you like my choice here or do you have other idea that’s needed to be added here?

As usual, leave your thought down below or send me your idea on Instagram or Twitter

Glowy Haul from Beautylish

Dear Y’all!

I promise this is gonna be the last haul post because it’s the last shopping I did before I put myself on no buy month, in the spirit of Lent too! Please pray for me 😀

This time I picked some stuff from Beautylish. I forget when does Beautylish start to have the option to pay in installment (no interest) for the minimum purchase of $ 99 So instead of paying the full amount, this time I paid one third of my total purchase, and it’s free shipping too. The delivery is really awesomely quick (head to head with Sephora) I made the purchase on Friday and the box came on Monday around noon. Wanna know what I got? Keep on reading

  1. Becca Afterglow Palette

I don’t have any Becca product before, and already thinking to get a couple shade at Sephora but of course with $ 38 for a highlighter compact it’s kinda steep (especially after all the haul that I’ve done lately) So of course, I jumped with joy when I saw the Afterglow Palette is still available on Beautylish. This palette is pretty in packaging, the box has a holographic effect and the product itself is a really pretty rose gold container. It look so pretty and luxurious.

L to R : Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Moonstone – Rose Gold – Topaz, Mineral Blush in Wild Honey -Flowerchild

When you open it, the Afterglow palette has the beautiful shades that  I set my eye on before. Moonstone and Rosegold are my favorite shade so far. Topaz is a little to golden-y yellow for me right now, but I think I can use it more once summer is here. Oh, and the blush, Girls! both shades are satin finish, buttery soft not powdery, and it gives you just enough sheen that make your cheek healthily blushing like a cute shy girl.

2. Glow on the Go Kit in Opal

It’s a little bummer that Beautylish doesn’t have Champagne Pop. So, after the 3 shades in the Afterglow palette, I snatched the Opal to get almost all the shade of Becca highlighter. It swatches beautifully! I should play with it a little more, especially the liquid one cause Girl! It’s intense.

Top – Bottom : Liquid – Pressed

For someone who doesn’t really into highlighting, I think I’ve stocked up a little too much lately. This is only my first impression, my opinion, put the liquid one then top it off with the pressed one, this so far is my most blinding highlight.

3. Becca Blushed with Light Palette

I missed this palette during the Sephora and Ulta sale at the end of the year. So again, I have to get this and yes, it’s worth getting. Not only the packaging is gorgeous, the blushes are also buttery soft and super pretty. Highly recommend this if you haven’t got it already.

Top-Bottom: Luminous blush in Snapdragon – Mineral Blush in Song Bird – Wisteria

I will put blush in my no buy list for now, since I’ve been going crazy with blush shopping since beginning of the year. The shades in this palette are pretty much 3 shades that I use the most. The Wisteria is a very pretty matte soft pink blush that still have a little subtle sheen to it. I will say that it’s more satin than matte. The Song bird is a very pretty nude peachy blush. It’s said shimmering blush on the product description but it’s not really a crazy shimmery blush with glitter reflex. As for the Snapdragon, no doubt it’s a shimmering shade. If you’re like me who doesn’t really like highlight for everyday look, you won’t need highlight if you put Snapdragon on your cheek.

4. Jouer Lip Crème in Citronade Rose

Holy Moly, this metallic liquid lipstick is gorgeous. If you follow me on Instagram you probably have seen that I couldn’t help myself not to play with this rightaway. Not only it’s a beautiful metallic pink on the lips, I also put in on my eyelid to intensify my eye look. Just pop it a little bit on the hand and pick it up with synthetic brush and pack it on the lid. It’s super pretty, especially with neon pink base.

As a fan of pink lippies, this lip creme gets my attention in the first swipe. It smells really good to (kinda similar to Nyx soft matte lip creme) It’s super comfortable on the lips, dry down pretty quick and wanna talk about longevity, this one doesn’t budge and smear at all. Once it’s set on the lips, it stays put but not sucking up your lips that makes your lips feel cracking and dry. Psst…already started to put some other colors in my cart for the next haul 😉 Let me know what shades should I get!

So far I’ve been enjoying my haul, and I can see myself using them a lot.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think about them?
