Sorry for not blogging for such a long time. I have been super busy since school started( actually with December coming, so are my exams). But I really don't wanna put off blogging any longer. So, without further ado, here're my November favorites.
Wet 'N' Wild Color Icon Blush in Heather Silk
This is the only blusher I used during November. LOVE IT. This matte blue-based cool-tone pink blush is what I would call a "basic/must have" blush. It's super flattering and natural-looking(provided with a light hand, due to its pigmentation). It looks like you are blushing. This blush is super pigmented which is great for someone in a hurry, I can just swipe and get going. It also wears very well, it's still very visible after 12 hours later. In fact, it would mix in with the oil on my face and give me a glow. I highly recommend this blush. What's even more amazing is that it's sooo affordable, I remember paying only RMB2X on Taobao.com for it. I am gonna bang myself from reaching this blush for the next month! Gotta show some love to other blushes!
这是我整个11月唯一用的腮红。大爱啊！我眼中，这个哑光蓝色基调，偏冷色的粉红腮红是一个“基本／必备”腮红。它非常好看漂亮，而且很自然（前提是别上太多，因为它很显色）。它看起来就像是你脸红了。这腮红非常显色，匆忙时用很方便，我可以扫两下就搞定了。而且它也非常持久，12个小时过后，还是清楚可见。事实上，它会和我脸上的油混合在一起，然后有一个很健康的光泽。强烈推荐这Wet N Wild更让人惊讶的就是，它真的超级便宜，我记得在淘宝上买，也就花了我二十多块钱。接下来这个月我要禁止自己用这腮红了，也要给别的腮红多点关心啊。
Urban Decay Naked 2 - Tease and Booty Call
I bought Naked 2 over a year ago but hardly ever used it. Not that I didn't like it, just that it's too beautiful for me to use it. But a year later, I finally overcome this sickness and started using it quite a lot. I've been wearing mainly this eye shadow combo for the last 2 weeks on a daily basis. I was quite shocked when I first tried out this eyeshadow combo, Tease really gave my eyes creases! I used to use warm-based browns to contour my eyes and it never did much, little did I know I should have gone with a purple-based brown. And Booty Call is just a gorgeous subtle but very visble highlight shade. It brightens my lids and enhanced my browbones. It really makes a difference without drawing attention to itself.
一年多前就买了Naked 2眼影盘，只是基本上没怎么用。不是因为我不喜欢，而是它太漂亮了，不舍得用啊！但是一年后，我总算是克服了这个病态思想，开始密密地用起来。这两个颜色是我过去两个星期来的固定搭配。第一次试着个组合时，真的惊呆了。Tease真的给了我眼窝！过去我都是用暖色系的棕色来加深眼窝，一直没什么效果，原来我应该用紫色系的棕色！而Booty Call则是一个很漂亮，低调但同时可见的高光色。它提亮我的眼睛，同时让我的眉骨看起来突出。它可以不惹人注目地起到做到了高光效果。
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara
I got it while Sasa was doing some sort of 20% off sale, so it was only a bit over HKD100(normally it's HKD129 I think). It's quite a highly raved mascara on YouTube and actually that's why I got it. At first, I was unimpressed. It didn't do much lengthening nor thickening, it looks like it just darkened my lashes a bit. I was so disappointed. BUT, a week later, it was WOW WOW WOW. I guess it dries up a bit in a week's time. It was indeed very lengthening and gives a false-lash effect! I can't say much about volumizing as that's not what I usually go for, I don't apply mascara in a zig-zag motion, I tend to just pull them upwards. It holds curls all day long and it doesn't smudge all day. And it's also super easy to remove - just soak a cotton pad with Bioderma, press onto my eyes for less than 10 seconds, and Viola!
Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in 53
Now this is a product doesn't get enough rave on the Internet cuz it's just amazing! I have it in the shade 53, but the shade really doesn’t matter as the powder is very much translucent. It provides no coverage or any tint of color. The powder is very finely milled. This sounds bad, but I like to cake a lot of this powder on my face to get rid of that sticky feeling of freshly applied foundation. No matter how much I apply, my face won’t look cakey or too matte. It’s an awesome setting powder. It has some oil control but that’s not its strength. On my combination to oily skin, my nose would shine after around 3 hours, which is fine. I like the packaging too, it’s very compact and comes with quite a large mirror. I once dropped it from 1.3 meter high, the powder didn't break! Granted, the pan can now be detached from the case, the powder didn't crack at all!I believe it retails HKD13X or 14X, available in selected Sasa and Watson and all Bourjois Boutiques in Hong Kong.
