Sunday Sharing: 2013 Loves So Far

I have requests for favourites posts. Makeup wise, I can be stuck in a rut sometimes. I do have the basics down, but I might skip on colours when I’m in a hurry. I don’t change my skincare often, and I have a habit of using up a certain product before trying new ones. I have a penchant for accessories like rings, necklaces and earrings, so perhaps I’ll show you something….

I have been using RMS ‘un’ cover up and Lunasol Pressed Face Colour a lot. On days I don’t feel like wearing any makeup, I’d just pat on ‘un’ cover up on problem areas like dark circles and some blemishes, powder my face and go. These 2 products have been my lazy days go to (which is a lot these days!), or even on really hot days when I don’t like putting on foundation.

Laziness aside, I am determined to use up at least one lip product, and I chose Lunasol gloss in Clear Red Beige because it is so easy to use. I am going through a phase of layering lip products and I am enjoying this lip trio. Dior Lip Maximizer as a base (LOVE the minty tingling sensation. It’s like, if I may, a lip orgasm), Revlon Blushing Nude, topped with Lunasol Clear Red Beige. If you haven’t tried the Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick, you have to. I already grabbed three different shades and they are all lovely.

For this post, I went through my accessories drawer. I found that I just don’t have anything dainty! It hit me that size does matter to me. Whadayaknow :-) I love chunky rings, chunky bracelets, but give me a chunky necklace and you’d have chopped off my neck and made me a troll. My wardrobe is full of boring blacks and neutrals, so my accessories are usually a little bit more colourful. I love this blue one I got from Aldo. It adds a tonne to my pointer but at least it’s my workout of the day. LOL!

I was travelling a little during the holidays and I realised I haven’t talked about these nifty little bullets before. I depot eyeshadows and blushes for travel, and I absolutely hate travelling with perfumes so I don’t….. until I discovered Travalo. To you people who made it possible, to you intelligent people who created Travalo, I love you!!!

Last but not least, this is a little cheat, because I haven’t even worn it yet. This is a little sneaky haul. I bought this not long ago, for half the price. It retails for RM299, but at RM150, I bought it immediately. It is comfortable, and it looks Oh. So. Sexy. I told you I wear black a lot right? Yeah, I like pairing black outfit with brighter shoes, or brighter bags. Don’t want people to think I just came back from a funeral :-P

There you go. Just to show you some of my favourites so far. I didn’t think it would be this difficult putting it together. Haha! Hope you enjoyed this post!!

      Thanks Larie! You have to try the un cover up. I’m addicted to it :-P

  • http://www.beauty-reflections.com Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    Love your faves Lily! I do the same thing on lazy days-concealer and a face powder. Fast and easy!
    LOVE the ring and those shoes! WOW!

      Thanks Tracy. I love those shoes too. They look really sexy on! Lol :-D

    That’s a lovely favourites post, Lily! I actually jumped on the RMS Beauty bandwagon thanks to you. (or should I say, nothanks? :p)
    I have been doing loads of concealer + powder days lately and I have a feeling Uncover Up will be something I really enjoy using. ;) Happy Sunday!

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Happy Sunday dear! Concealer and powder combo is the way to go on lazy days for sure :-) You’ll like the RMS un cover up. Very natural.

    Oh wow that Lunasol pressed powder reminds me of that new(ish) Bobbi Brown one. Ahhhk–want to try Lunasol’s powders/cheek colors soo bad!! :P

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      All you have to do is ask, Becca :-) Say the word! Haha!

    OOOO those pumps!!! I really need to try the RMS concealer at some point. I’m just not too sure about it being in a pot. I’ve always preferred a stick or a pen-type thing.

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      I guess you can always pick up the product using a clean brush. I usually apply makeup right after I washed my face, so hands are always clean :-) You should try it though. As a concealer, there are others out there which might do better in terms of coverage, but this one is natural and is good for the face. So I use it on blemishes. Helps treat it too!

    Ooh, that Lunasol lip shade is so pretty. I seriously LOVE those little perfume containers, I sometimes use them to mix up my own custom scent, such a great invention :)

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Those Travalos are amazing and you’re right! You can definitely mix your own scent :-)

    Omg those shoes! Love that they are yellow, aaah! Yay for Sunday sharing, keep it up! Gotta love the Travelo sprays, they are my savious for when traveling idd! :)

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      In real life, they are more of a mustard yellow, not too bright :-) Oh yay! Another Travalo fan!! It’s awesome :-D

      Glad you like them!

    Nice post. I have been using Revlon Super Lustrous in Mauvy Night (473) for years and have gone through so many tubes of it. Glad to see another person enjoying it as well :-) I saw the Travolo retailing for SGD16.90 in Guardian Singapore and was really tempted to buy it. Is it difficult to transfer your favourite perfume into this tubes?

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Quite easy to transfer actually. There’s a little step by step in the box so you know what to do. No mess, easy peasy ;-)

    Hi Lily. Just have one question which I forgot to ask earlier. On the days that you do not wear foundation, is it alright to use just loose powder (after covering under eye-circles and other spots with a concealer) right after your sunscreen? I was told by an SA not to do this at it will damage your skin long term. Not sure if it is true though.

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      I’m not sure why the SA said that. I don’t see the harm in it. Isn’t loose powder makeup as well? It’s like putting on powder foundation after skincare. I always apply makeup on top of sunscreen. I’m actually a little confused why the SA would make a statement like that, actually! Lol!

      • Victoria

        Yeah, I am not sure why she said that either but these was a few years ago. Thanks for the clarification :-)

        • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

          Many sunscreens nowadays are used as makeup bases so I don’t see a problem. Maybe it wasn’t the case before? Haha! Either way, concealer and powder is the way to go when I’m short of time. Or, just loose powder over sunscreen to minimize shine if your skin doesn’t need coverage :-)

    Travalos are one of my favourite things! I also tend to keep Caudalie eau de beaute and sea salt spray in them when I travel.

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Why sea salt spray? I’m clueless. Heh!

  • BooBooNinja

    Those shoes! Gimme Gimme Gimme!

      They’re cool huh? Heh!
