The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders. I think 90% of the bloggers I know own this. It was quite the hype when it was launched and I was very curious. Hourglass is not available here, so there was no way I could play with them. I read review after review, and finally decided on one that I think I will like best. I chose Diffused Light.
If you’ve been to Sasa, you would have seen Candy Doll products. I’m not too keen on their lip products which I find are too light and pasty for me, but I have been enjoying their concealer and mineral face powder. The concealer doesn’t dry out my skin, and the powder provides a light coverage on the face. The great thing is, the concealer, when set with powder, doesn’t sit in fine lines, and it doesn’t melt either. The concealer I’m using is shade number 2 which is a light peachy beige, great for my under eyes!
I’ve been wanting my own Guerlain Meteorites Perles Illuminating Powder for a while now. I wasn’t sure which one to choose, and finally decided to go with Teint Rose 01. In fact, I got it online when there was a one day special and it was half off its retail price! I knew I had to get it then or never. I’m glad I did because all were sold out within an hour. I ended up paying less than RM100 for this, so I’m very happy with the purchase.
Today I will be talking about 2 items sent to me a while ago. A Diorsnow edition eye palette Frost Bloom and a face powder called Diorsnow Light Reveal Colour Correcting Powder in 001 Crystal Rose. Diorsnow skin care is one of my favourites, and it is a whitening / brightening range available in Asia. The makeup launched on a yearly basis also promotes just that. A brightening effect for the face. So, face powders are to illuminate, and eye shadows are usually pale, sheer and irridescent. It’s the snowy effect after all
This is the second box of VanityTrove I am reviewing. The first box didn’t wow me, and I was hoping this month will be better. There were a few items I could use from last month’s, and I was hoping for something better, since the theme is Temptress. You see a black and white photo, and a beautiful lady with red lips. You’d expect something like red lipsticks (duh!), or mascara, or something that invokes the sexiness in a Temptress… but I was wrong.
