This month, I decided to buy some beauty products that I have been eyeing for quite some time.
URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE
I'm sure I don't have to talk much about this. There are so much ravings about this eye palette by various makeup artists etc. As for me, I like neutral tone, not loud and bright, so I suppose this will fit me? I was thinking between NAKED or NAKED2 but I was told that the former is for people with light skin tone while the latter for the tanned ones.
And it comes with a eye primer, which I have purchased previously. I really like the primer a lot because it makes drawing eyeliner much smoother and easier.
BARE ESCENTUALS bareMinerals Customizable Get Started Kit
I need a new foundation and I have been thinking of this one for quite some time.
Since this foundation can be only used by their own brushed, I purchased this customizable (choose your own foundation) kit at a better deal (than purchasing the foundation and brush alone).
It comes with Original Mineral Veil, Warmth All-over Face Color, Full Flawless Face Brush, Flawless Application Face Brush, Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush, Prime Time Foundation Primer, Get Started DVD and of course Foundation. I chose the Matte one, since I have combination skin.
Still a makeup noob, I need some time to figure these things out. Probably watch some tutorial?
LANEIGE WATER SLEEPING PACK_EX
Featured in Women's Weekly as one of the best beauty buys, I'm sure girls have this in their home too.
I tried this last night and it is amazing. I wake up with my skin smooth and supple, like water is being replenished into my face skin. Initially, I was afraid that the pillow would be messed up by the mask, since this is an overnight one. I think this is good because most of us don't have time to do mask weekly, perhaps sometimes maybe lazy, but you can just apply this before bed and wake up to do your normal twice-a-day cleansing routine - save time as well.
These little buys, though one sponsored by my mum, have definitely bought me confidence.
Why do you think we buy such products when we could have easily save the money? Honestly speaking, we are not buying the product, but rather what the product has to offer for us. Look around and you will realise what I say is true, unless it is a screw that we are talking about. Comestics - what do you think we buy it for it? No, we don't, we buy it to look better, to look confident.
Perhaps the next time before purchasing a product, take a look at the benefits and what it has to offer - you will understand why we girls would stand in front of the counter/product to think/look/consider for a long time.
