I’ve been loving this lip gloss for almost a month now since Yuu-chan gave it. I use it mostly to keep my lips from drying and chapping. I’ve never really been prone to having chapped lips, just this month. I wonder what could have triggered it, the weird weather? I also use it whenever I go jogging because the cold night air makes my lips drier. It stays longer than the other lipglosses I’ve tried, and it smells really sweet. The downside though is that it doesn’t taste sweet at all. I still like using it anyway.
Forever 21 Love & Beauty sheer lip gloss.
Look, it makes my lips seem nicer.
And my current nails; green apple and neon pink!
Okay, I’m dead tired and have just arrived from a work trip where I ate A LOT. Mostly, it was fruits and veggies and fish but my pants feel so tight, my tummy seems about to burst! Hahaha! I considered it a break from working out but I miss being in workout clothes (I miss the utter comfort of my running shoes) and being all sweaty and having a fast heartbeat. And so tonight, I’m giving myself a good workout as a treat (and a Green Tea Frappe too, I think).
February’s coming really soon and I still can’t make up my mind what fitness class to enroll in. My current choices are CrossFit or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but which one do I do first? Any other options?
Sweet treats and Forever 21 love & beauty lipgloss from Yuu-chan! Yay! Arigatou!
Mae’s birthday gift to me last month, Tony Moly Crystal Eye Decoration in Peach. Yay! Thanks a lot! My friends know I love cosmetics!
So, one side is with lots of shimmer, good for using as a highlighter under your eyes. I swear, I fell in love with it when I first tried it. It made my eyes look dewy!
And this other side acts as an eyeliner. Unfortunately for my monolids, it doesn’t show up very much but I tried my best for it to show on the photograph so you can see it.
I’m using GEO Bambi Almond circle lenses. I hope you can notice the shimmer under my eyes, just beneath the waterline. It’s not that thick because I smudged it, one sweep of the shimmery side of the Crystal Eye Decoration is already pretty thick so you’d have to smudge it to tone it down.
I have monolids and this is the only angle that the eyeliner would be visible. If I open my eyes, you wouldn’t see it at all, but I still like applying it sometimes! I also use the eyeliner on the waterline and on the outer corners of my eyes, and smudge it and apply black eyeliner on the days I feel like being emo. Hahahaha!
Because it’s pretty humid here, staying power is not that long and I’d have to touch up a few times in a day, but you can see the shimmer still stays on your skin so it doesn’t really melt altogether, just a few dabs of the shimmer and eyeliner once in a while.
So, that’s it. ‘Til my next make-up adventure!
- Nichido Final Powder in Creamy Glow
- Avon SimplyPretty Fresh Radiance Gel Foundation and Concealer Duo in Almond
- Natuer Be: Natural-blossom Foundation For All Skin Types
- Etude House BB Magic Cream with SPF 30
- Careline Oil Control Liquid make-up in Almond
- Shawill 2-way Powder Cake Foundation in 005
These are all the make-up bases I have and use at the moment. I would love to splurge on other brands and new supplies but I don’t want to just throw these out yet. That would be a big waste, and it still kind of amazes me how come there are still a lot left in the bottles when I use it quite often (not just on special occasions). Anyway, I think these would all still last me through out the rest of the year so I’d have more time to save (therefore, splurge more) and stocking up on bases could wait a little longer.
You can see the my eyeshadows and lip collection here.
My mini collection of eyeshadows and lip gloss/balm/tint/stick. Most eyeshadows were gifts from friends, and though I have monolids and other people find that troublesome for eye make-up, I still like playing with eyeshadows. I have lots of lip balms because I use that often, and for some random reason, I just really like lip products in general.
