Just Another Day Of Trying New Products..Part 1

I love makeup! I love going to makeup counters to look at what’s new and I especially love trying them out! Well, ok, maybe some of them are just new discoveries and not really new in the market. Nevertheless, it is discovering great products that really work for you that is more exciting.

Recently, I had some amazing discoveries and I just want to share them with you…

L-R: Elf eyeshadow “C” brush, Elf contour brush, L’oreal True Match liquid foundation, Essence lip liner in cute pink, Flormar lip line in 230 and 228, NYX Mega Shine lip gloss, L’oreal Super Liner, L’oreal Double Extension Curl mascara

Let me start off with my loot from L’oreal…

What I like about this liquid liner is the applicator. It’s not a brush but a soft kind of rubbery applicator. Also, it is super waterproof once it dries. I have oily skin and oily lids. When I used this liquid liner I didn’t have any problem with it smudging even with the humid weather. It’s also very easy to apply thanks to the applicator.

The Double Extension Curl is one of those waterproof mascara with a two step application. You begin with the Flexing + Curling Base and then proceed with the Ultra-lengthening + Curling Mascara. The liquid liner and mascara is a good combo.

Meanwhile, I have heard some good things about the True Match liquid foundation so I just had to try it for myself.

It has a great light to medium coverage that is perfect for daily wear. I enjoy how smooth it goes when applied and it’s really light weight. The only downside is the bottle because it doesn’t have any pump. So I have to pour a bit on the back of my hand to get some products out. Then I use a foundation brush to apply it.

Watch out for Part 2…

Giving It A Second Chance

Have you ever bought a makeup or beauty product and don’t like it the first time you used it? Well, I had that experience when I bought the L’oreal Magic Smooth Souffle foundation in the shade Nude Beige. I bought it in Target when I went to L.A. last year.

When I first used it, I thought that I got the wrong shade cause it was a little bit lighter on my skin. So I set it aside in my makeup pile. It wasn’t until I purchased a flat-top foundation brush from Suesh that I considered trying it out again.

Maybelline Bold Matte and L’oreal Candy Lipsticks

Since I’m still in a hiatus from applying eye makeup, I have been obsessed with lip products. I keep buying them. I know I have to stop myself from doing this but then I saw the new Maybelline Bold Matte Lipsticks. Also, I have always wanted to try L’oreal’s Miss Candy Collection Lipstick. IMG_1174

So I got two new Maybelline Bold Matte Lipsticks in MAT1 and MAT3 and one L’oreal’s Miss Candy Collection Lipstick in the shade Miss Strawberry.
