Try as I might, I only ended up with 2 pictures for my FOTD =p I have problems taking pictures of myself cuz my chubby cheeks annoy me. So if you ever see me in person, I probably look a bit chubbier than this just because I'm trying to hide my cheeks haha. I think the lack of natural lighting also causes me to delete a lot of pictures that I took haha.
I used my Lunasol Winter 2008 set to create this look. I'm kinda bummed that the colors didn't turn out well on camera even though I used a primer and base.
The items are listed as palette EX04 (soft silver lighting), blush EX01 (soft silver rose) and Geminate Liner EX02. I didn't use the nail polish yet.
The item in the small jar is the P&J Moisturizing Foundation Primer 03. I really like how it spreads so smoothly and it feels so light. I don't think there's sun protection in this one. I wanted to get this but the SA told me this transparent one doesn't have it.
Everytime I take a picture of what I used, it seems quite ridiculous. I haven't even taken a picture of one of the makeup mists I used. *sigh* The things that girls do to pretty themselves XD
I have to mention that I like this Lunasol palette more than the Layer Bloom eyes. The EX04 is more pigmented and has better staying power. I also think it blends slightly better than the purple gradation palette. I'm glad I got the winter 2008 set because I really like the EX04 as another everyday palette. It's pink, but it's toned down a bit so I can easily match any outfit.
The Coffret D'or pressed powder is what I'm reaching for right now. For some reason, the slight shimmer in the Lavshuca powder seems a bit too much for me. However, the puff that comes with the CoD powder is kinda crappy and it doesn't pick up enough product.
After applying the primer and MM base, I applied the highlighter shade from the crease to the brow bone. Next I applied the rosey pink all over the lids and dabbed the silver shade in the middle of the lid. Finally, I lined the top lashline with the brown shade and finished it with the geminate liner.
Sometimes the MM mascara and base clumps or feels stiff. I don't know why, but it gets annoying. It sort of clumped a bit today which made it difficult to apply the fiberwig mascara.
The P&J 061 has no pigmentation whatsoever. It's more like a lipgloss in a tube, even then, the shimmers are really subtle.
I need to ask everyone, do you think pink eyes, pink blush and pink lips are overboard? I was tempted to use a subtle pink lipstick today but I held back because everything in the Lunasol set was pink toned.
I forgot to mention how this Softymo Point Makeup Remover has replaced the Mandom Express remover. This stuff works a lot better than the Mandom and it doesn't leave any residues that might show up the next morning. I don't think it works as well as the Neutrogena oil free makeup remover because I have to hold the cotton pad on my eyes for a longer period of time. I got this for $99HKD and it contains 120mL. The texture is similar to an essence lotion and I feel that a little goes a long way.Trying out my MM nailpolish in PK313. It doesn't apply very evenly, but as it starts to dry, it kinda spreads out on it's own and leaves a more even finish. I don't know why haha. you can barely notice any color on my nails, but that's because I only used 1 coat.
Update on the Daily Fresh peel from the previous post! It comes out as a clear thick gel that smells slightly citrusy. You're supposed to leave it on for 15-20 mins, but I ended up leaving it on for 30 mins because it took so long to dry! It was worth it though, because the peel pulled out the gunk quite successfully, much better than the time I tried the Naris Up peel (which I'm waiting for in the other luggage to be sent over).
I need everyone's help! After using the Gatsby hairspray, I noticed about a month ago there were residues on the top of my head that I can't wash away. I don't understand why it's on top of my head because I never spray it there anyway, it's like all the gunk migrated up to the top o_O It actually looks slightly greasy on my head which is quite gross. I only have half a small bottle of the Neutrogena Anti-Residue shampoo left and it's not available in Korea. Does anyone recommend any other brand of shampoos or what kinda of home remedies to use? Korea is very limited with its shampoo selections =/
