This month’s empties contain some makeup items, but I still think it’s a bit of a cheat. There is only 1 skin care item in this month’s post, and I have a feeling I won’t have any empties to post soon.
After a failed attempt, or rather, a disappointing experience with an expensive mascara, I decided to go back to trying cheaper ones. One of my experiments was L’Oreal Paris Double Extension Mascara. The main reason I picked this up was because of the lash renewal serum that is infused in the mascara. Also, it would be great if it could really double the length of my lashes Did it work? Read on…
Do you use face primers? Primers are (in general) to protect our face before we put on foundation. Of course, they help foundations go on smoother and stay on longer. I have really only used a handful of primers so far, from MUFE, Shu Uemura and Becca. They are mostly to correct my skintone and manage sebum production. I have not tried any pore minimizing primers or fillers until now, the L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer.
The L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeshadows. Who hasn’t heard of this, please raise your hands. These eyeshadows are a hot item in the blogosphere and I finally know why. These are not available in Malaysia yet, but I heard that we will get them… in time. I got mine from Ulta, in 2 wearable shades that compliment my skin tone: Golden Sage and Bronzed Taupe. Now, the names are something that confuse me because apparently, the names differ according to where you are in the world. I don’t like that. Makes life difficult. Bleh.
This post is much overdue. I also broke the cardinal rule of blogging – the pictures are taken after I’ve used up half the bottle! I didn’t plan on talking about this, but after using for one month, I decided I had to share. The L’Oreal Youth Code pre-serum was launched some time late last year. I got mine during Christmas sale season, for only about RM88. The bottle is already used up, FYI, and for this review, I will give you 2 perspectives. One is for dry/oily combination skin, and another is for mature dry skin.
