Beige Sand Olive



Weeks ago, my skin looked like crap and I was in a foundation frenzy.  Purchased several, including Make Up Forever HD (my shade is 117) and EX1 F100 (more on that below).  Honor lent me her YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation - or I bullied her to hand me, whatever - in shade B 10 Beige (definitely matched to her skin tone not mine).  This post is a very random first impression on the Youth Liberator, performed on a gloomy day, just because baby allowed me to.  Thank you Roma, I appreciate that!

I will try to type as fast as possible so that this post do not have to wait till 2016 to get published... Stay tuned till the end for a bonus FOTD. ;)

EX1 is supposed to be designed for skin with olive undertone, my DW is in Sand, and the Youth Liberator is in B10Beige, hence the post title~

Ulta & Sephora Haul


My family doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, same as a good majority of locals, but that doesn't stop me from taking advantage of the massive Black Friday + Cyber Monday Sale 2014 that was going on in North America.  I made Tao do some shopping for me and here are what she managed to hunt down for me.  #eternallygrateful

Project 10 Pan | Epic Fail


None of the 10 items were finished, since the project commenced.

Kind of expected.

And here are some revelations:

1.  I like to switch up my products.  Even though I can force myself to use certain make up over and over again, I just don't feel happy after a few times.  What's the point of buying so many and not enjoying all of them?

2.  Some items are meant to be rotated.  The skin care I picked was a good selection that suited the weather, but still, the need of my skin still changes day by day so I have to switch things in and out.

3.  Something are not meant to be finished within a short period of time.  E.g. the Origins Serum really is a huge bottle and despite me trying to incorporate it into my routine nearly daily if not twice daily, it is still going strong.  Same goes with quite a lot of my other things...

4.  If aim of these projects is to feel satisfaction by using up products, to me, hitting pan, e.g. with the Chantecaille (almost, not yet), is very fulfilling, and adequate; I do not need using up a product entirely to achieve such contentment.

5.  Budget items, or cheap stuff, do not motivate me to use up as easily as the more expensive stuff.  E.g. the Parado brow and Solone eye pencil are great stuff but I just feel less, or not, guilty if I don't use them at all and attempt at other alternatives.

6.  I may attempt Project Make a Dent #projectMAD in the remaining months of the year.  One month is really too short to do any type of Project Pan.  Sara is doing this for 2015 and I'm contemplating to join.


So, I photographed the 10 items in order of descending frequency of usage (left to right), during January and a good chunk of Feb.  I don't have much to add, but if you've got questions or anything regarding project-x-pan, etc, to share, feel free to leave them below!

What Her Mom Got Me from Osaka | 大阪帶回戰利品


This post is a sequel to my wish-list.

The Mom referred to in the subject is Honor's Mom.  Do go check out what she got from her Mom, too!



CHICCA

I got one of the Holiday Set - Christmas Collection 2014 Body (with Beauty Glow Body Cream Sweet Wonder 200g, Make Palette Winter Wonder and Original Pouch, ¥9500).  And two Mesmeric Lipstick #08 and #12 (¥3990@).

ADDICTION

Besides the Holiday Addiction Tokyo Jazz (¥7200) The set features: -Limited Compact in Tokyo Jazz -Eyeliner Pencil in Blackjack (full size), -Ribbon Clutch.  Out of the initial three colours, I cut down my wish to only one Cheek Stick #Rose Bar.  I was on a high lipstick kick so I also asked for Lipstick #Cassis (S for Sheer) #Day Trip (S) and the new Lipstick Pure in #Spy Pink (all ¥2800@).

SUQQU
Only got a Bright Up Lipstick #03 Barairo (¥5400), as planned.  Can't you tell I was seriously lemming for lipsticks?

ELEGANCE
Mythic Rouge #10 (¥3800) is actually quite disappointing as the packaging is exceptionally light and cheap feeling, despite the price tag...



Samples - my share after splitting the loot with Honor.

Now I need time to properly play with these!

Empties 2014 | Finale


These pictures were taken mid-January so I was kind of cheating.  If you can get past that, then please read on.  Not that it matters to you the slightest bit, right? :P
