Happy New Year of the Snake! Today is the first day of Chinese (or Lunar) New Year, and I'm wishing you all a prosperous, healthy and joyful year ahead!
Time flies~ Here comes the thirteenth Shameless Spoil post since I introduced this series. Can't you tell I'm so utterly spoilt, thankful? Anyway, in mid-December, perhaps 1 trip before the Body Shop gingerbread man hunt, I managed to ran into a pop-up booth of Make Up Forever with great discounts. Most colour items in store are doing buy 2 get 1, or 3 for 2. I kept my sanity and only go for two main items I have wanted for long. The Aqua Brow and Smoky Lash. Mr. Fiance, as always, gladly and automatically paid for these. You won't believe how bright his smile is when he can buy me something I like, I guess boys want us girls to be straight-forward with what we desire - at least, sometimes?
Aqua Brow is a "long-lasting, smudge-proof eyebrow corrector that fills, defines, and lengthens brows."; "a highly pigmented gel that enhances and reshapes natural brows. Its superior waterproof formula creates a strong hold while its high concentration of pigments allows for intense color payoff that will not fade. Aqua Brow’s creamy gel texture gives an even, natural result that will last all day." The saleslady (or mua) told me I can apply this either with a spooly brush or a slanted brush. So far I have only tried the slanted brush method and shade No.25 (FOTD wearing this, and another FOTD) works with my colouring very well. Considering the tiny amount one needs for each use, I think these will last forever. They are sold at US$20 only on the USA Sephora website, whereas they are HK$210 here. With the 3 for 2, each costs about US$18. I call this a steal!
MUFE Smoky Lash could be one of the most raved about mascaras amongst bloggers and youtubers. I love mascaras that give me the full thick clumpy false-lash effect. Smoky Lash is "a mascara that gives the lashes curl, volume, length, and intense pigment. This ultra-pigmented mascara was specially designed to give the lashes an exceptional volume-enhancing effect with infinite lengthening and immediate curling." It also talks about the brush: "The tough, dense brush penetrates into the roots of the lash to ensure that lash is completely coated with mascara." Aqua Smoky Lash is, simply, the waterproof version of Smoky Lash. Each of these costs around US$20.5 after the discount, while it is listed as US$23 on the US Sephora website. I haven't tried these out yet as I wanted to use up some of my current ones first, before opening any of these up. ;)
