It’s still end of July, and in some places, it’s still summer, and in others, it’s winter. We decided to do something different, and by that, we’re feeling vampy. The first thing I thought of was to pull out my darker lipsticks. How exciting Then, I was debating whether to keep my eyes minimal, or to go all out dark. I haven’t been playing much with eye shadows for a few months now, and I took this opportunity to actually use some of my eye shadows! Dark eyes it is. I was going to use black only but….. it kinda got out of hand. Heh!
For the base, I wanted something flawless, so I used my newly purchased Lancome Blanc Miracle SPF50 liquid foundation, set with my well loved Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation. To avoid looking like a goth, I added some pink using Dior Rosy Glow blush.
It’s the alphabet cream again. You guys should know by now that Bobbi Brown BB Cream is my favourite. I’ve been featuring it in most of my FOTD posts because well, I really like it! So when I got the chance to test the CC Cream, I was not as skeptical as I’d be. CC Creams are colour correcting creams and Bobbi Brown promises instantly healthy looking even toned skin with the use of this CC Cream as a base. I was sent Pale Nude (there is also Warm Nude for darker complexions) and this is my review.
So who here doesn’t know Dior Rouge and Dior Addicts are my favourite formula in lipsticks? I’ve had this sample for months, and I didn’t use it. I honestly didn’t know what I was thinking, but I’m glad I opened it for this post. The shades have been out for a while already, so you probably have seen them. The shades are 999, Grege 1947 (169), Darling (567) and Trafalgar (539). I decided to wear them with cooler metallic eyes so I took out my neglected Urban Decay Naked2 palette. For foundation, I used my MUFE HD foundation which still has about half a bottle left.
We have all heard of La Mer. It is no doubt a luxury brand with the price tag to match. However, you’re not just paying for the brand name. The ever famous Miracle Broth™ is unparalleled and I have friends who swear by it. My first ever luxury skincare purchase was La Mer. I bought the Creme de La Mer before I got married, using a quarter of my paycheck. It was painful but it was worth it. So when I was sent the SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid, the latest addition to La Mer’s illuminating Blanc de la Mer collection, I was excited to try it.
So I was at the doctor’s yesterday to do a detailed scan. The sonographer scanned me for a good 45 minutes and the baby is healthy! Of course we were curious about the gender, so she kindly looked for either a va-j-j or a little birdie. Guess what?? We saw the birdie and the 2 little eggs!! HAHAHAH!! We’re so bloody excited because after Chloe and Ashlyn, we were hoping for a boy. Wish came true!!
So now, we’re thinking of a name. At the moment, Shane sounds pretty good. We’ll see if we’re sticking to it. Suggestions?
