1. Another Thursday, another #tbt featuring my old #makeup and #beauty #products! @BourjoisParis Petit Guide de Style in 16 Crazy Baby is a tiny palm-sized #eyeshadow #palette with two #eyeshadows, a vanilla cream yellow and a forest green. I love the little booklet casing! It comes with little instructions for suggested ways to wear the eyeshadow and a sponge applicator. #clozette

     
  2. #New @lorealparissg #makeup: the Mat Magique Matte Transforming Powder! This is touted as a #shinebuster to keep skin #shinefree for 12 hours. It keeps skin oil-free, matte, and covers pores. With SPF34 too as a bonus! #lorealparissg #clozette

     
  3. Peek and impromptu of items in my #cosmetics #stash: some of my favourite @beccacosmetics #makeup and #beauty #products, the #creme #blush! #Beccacosmetics has great #cremeblush, very nice wearable colours and soft textures. These are a lot softer than the Bobbi Brown or Stila type of #creamblush, but more moist than Chanel’s or MUFE’s. So I’d say similar in moistness to the more traditional Bobbi Brown/Stila type, but has the softness of the Chanel and MUFE ones. I love mine, the only downside is that because the texture is so soft, after a few uses it starts looking gross because every nick, dent, an dip gets imprinted on the #blush quite deeply (as you can see from this photo - although to be fair mine are well used). But these are really great quality #blushes! Maybe my only gripe is the packaging - I’m not a fan of the NARS-style rubberized compacts and the heavy lids (I like the mirrors though!). The colours I have are Wild Orchid, Amaryllis, and Frangipani. #clozette

     
  4. Another new #makeup #product to play with: #Kate Wide Edge Eyes in BR-3, an #eyeshadow #palette with #eyeshadows in shades of #neutral #brown and #beige. Bought this at the #kanebo sale sometime back. Among the #japanese drugstore #beauty brands, #katesg is one of my favourites as I think they have better pigmentation than the average Japanese drugstore brand. I already have BR-2 from the same range, so I was happy to get this too! #clozette

     
  5. Thursday = #tbt = let me show you some embarrassingly old #makeup #product that I still have and love! (Just one of a few #Beautybloggerproblems I have, lol.) This is @maccosmetics Femme Fi #eyeshadow from the Neo Sci-Fi Collection eons ago (okay more like a few years). It’s a great neutral #beige for use as a highlight/all over lid colour. And you gotta dig the #neon #orange packaging which is a love-it-or-hate-it thing. Similar #colours (but not dupes from what I can tell) in the #mac perm line include Shroom and Ricepaper. #clozette

     
  6. A peek into my #stash: #Beauty on a #budget! While I love my high-end stuff, I definitely love my #drugstore #makeup #products too! I’m a true #beautyaddict - I don’t discriminate by brand or price, and if it’s a good #product, I love it regardless of price! Here are some of my favourite #budgetbeauty #neutral #eyeshadowpalettes:

    1. @muacosmetics Heaven and Earth #eyeshadow #palette - this popular palette caused quite the storm when it came out back then!

    2. #muacosmetics #trio eyeshadow in Innocence - love their #eyeshadows in general.

    3. @nyxcosmetics smokey eyes #eyeshadowpalette - another favourite brand of mine got good but inexpensive #eyeshadows! #clozette

     
  7. A #pretty @etudehousesingapore #highlighter I hauled from Korea! The Face Designing #Brightener in 01 Wannabe Face. I bought it in part because it looked somewhat similar to Thebalm’s Mary Lou-Manizer. They’re not dupes for sure (a reader commented that it’s less sparkly than Lou-Manizer), but it helps to stop me from buying more #makeup I don’t need, lol! #clozette

     
  8. #mygotos tag, as tagged by the lovely @vinvola! #Skincare first:
    1. @aveneusa Eau Thermal #Avene #sunscreen: I wear this almost everyday.
    2. @kiehlssg Ultra Facial #Cream: A really solid #moisturizer for those with dry skin. I like using this since I work in an air-conditioned environment.
    Next, the #makeup:
    1. #Ponds magic #powder: Also a daily use everytime I do my makeup, and it’s really cheap too!
    2. @makeupforeversg #HD #loosepowder: I like to mix some in with my Ponds or whatever loose powder I’m using to control oil and give a nice finish.
    3. @ultabeauty #eyeshadow in Naked: I use this as an all-over wash for my lids. Most light beige shades work, but this has really good pigmentation!
    4. @majolicasg SV821 eyeshadow: I love all my taupe #eyeshadows, so I couldn’t pick one, but this one is on a small and compact packaging so I do travel around with it too :)
    5-8: I really couldn’t pick a #goto #blush, so I just picked three neutral go-with-everything #blushes that I reach for: @chanel official #jouescontrast in rose dust, @maccosmetics Blushbaby #blusher, and @makeupforeverofficial HD #creamblush in 220, a new favourite!
    9-12. My #eyeliners! My favourite #eyeliner brands are #mufe and @urbandecaycosmetics. I reach for my brown and purples the most, so here they are: #makeupforever’s 25L, #urbandecay’s Rockstar and bourbon. Tagging @ma_jacqueline @samanthashley_ and @fenztastic to play too if you haven’t been tagged yet! :) #clozette

  10. Finally got one of these, just to see what the hype was about: @Guerlainsg #Meteorites #Perles in Teint Beige. I have to say, this is one of the most #pretty #makeup and #beauty #products in my stash. Let’s see if this #highlighter #powder really lives up to its reputation! #clozette #makeupguerlain
