Hellooo Monday

Who doesn't love pay day? I just had to treat myself to some goodies.
I've always wanted to use falsies more often, but it seemed like such a pain in the butt to put on all the time, plus the ends don't stick that well after a few hours of wear.
I used to use Darkness lashes whenever I had the time, but a lot of times I didn't put them on very well so I could feel it.
I went to Pacific Mall to get some more hair spray and passed by a store that sold these super pretty lashes. It was $20 for 10 pairs or $3 per pair, I got 1 pair just to test it out and so far so good.
The spine/bone(??) of the lashes are much thinner than the Darkness lashes so they feel a lot more comfortable. Although they are comfortable to wear, I'm predicting that they won't stick as well as the day passes due to the lack of surface area sticking to my eyes.

Still..they're very pretty and natural looking. Today's makeup is inspired by this YouTube vid




Makeup used:


Earlier today I just put on some mascara and brown eyeliner when I went to do my errands. Adding the false lashes plus some shadow really adds more oomph to my eyes.

Lined 1/3 of the bottom lashline with brown eyeshadow. I didn't even need black liquid liner after I applied the lashes since the lash itself was already black..it created the illusion of the liner.

I'm starting to like TM a lot more than foundation. I'm starting to find that foundation cakes easily between my brows and around the nose. Good thing for me I don't have too much extra foundation that needs to be used.
I started getting sick of using the Stila TM (there's only 1/4 bottle left anyway, so no big deal not to finish it all XD). It started feeling a bit too heavy for my taste so I went and splurged on the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer in Medium ($33CAD for 75mL). It was such a good deal, considering the amount you get for that price. Plus a little goes a long way.


Kiehl's is the most fluid of the 3 TM and I think a bit more suited to my skin tone. Compared with the other 2 I've used, Kiehl's has pretty good coverage for a TM, not heavy at all and leaves my skin nice and dewy. The thing about this TM is that it emphasizes the dry bits on and around my nose. I haven't found a solution to this yet besides exfoliating...hmm..maybe I'm not exfoliating enough?
Stila is similar to Kiehl's except it feels a bit heavier and my skin gets a bit more oily.
Covergirl is the most sheer, it has barely does anything, oh well it was worth the try.
I used Primavista pressed powder on top of the Kiehl's TM
