April Hits & Misses

Better be late than never right? Haha Enjoy!

Products mentioned:

Revlon Photoready Foundation in 006 Medium Beige

First bought this foundation after seeing how it was raved by so many youtubers/bloggers, I actually stopped when winter approached because it was too dry to be used on my normal combination skin. This is a summer foundation for me with SPF 15 and medium coverage. The very fine milled shimmers do not bother me at all. I think it gives a rather dewy finish, which is the type of foundation I like. I am using color 005 Natural Beige and already bought 006 Natural Beige as back up. This is a great liquid foundation for its price. Not to mention it lasts for a very long time!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Cherries in the Glow

I have 3 tubes of this lipgloss because I just love this sheer red glassy gloss so much. Applied on it appears to be an 'upgraded' version of my lips, make them juicy and slight colored. It matches everything I wear and its so easy to apply. I have 1 in my vanity table, 1 in my car and 1 in my purse. 

Revlon Satin eyeshadow in Shimmering Sienna

Got a bunch of Revlon single eyeshadow during the last CVS cosmetics clearance, I completely forgot about this until I was digging through my "back up" box of cosmetics to look for something I "should" use for the summer. I found this baby about 2 weeks ago and have been reaching for it so much since. Its a gorgeous warm bronzy brown color that has a sheen to it. Never knew Revlon eyeshadow were this pigmented and high quality!

ELF Eyelid Primer

This $1 eyelid primer is exactly what I need since I dont have oily eyelids. Having been experimenting different eyeshadow, this does a decent job holding up the color as well as acting as a barrier for my eyelids from directly touching any eyeshadow. 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer

If you had to pick one bronzer to use for the rest of your life, I recommend you pick this baby up. I can never distinguish if this is warm or cool tone, and thats why its perfect for rainny muddy springy season like this. It stays on forever and truly deserves its hypes! 

RMK Loose Powder in P00

Got this when I lived in Hong Kong, I put it away and didnt find it until this time of moving came around. The color is a tad too light but I like how it brightens up my skin with its extremely fined milled shimmers and draws the focus to the center of my face using this along with bronzer. The puff that comes with is super soft. I turn it over and shake it once, open the cap and am able to set my whole face of foudnation/bb cream with that amount. It saves me a lot of time in the morning :)

Loreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner in G900 Carbon Black

Who says this is comparable to the Lancome Artliner!? Like for realz-_- No it doesnt. I bought this because my dollywink ran out, and thought I would give this a try since its been raved SO much. Formula wise it really isnt bad. Its very pigmented, long lasting, sweat proof. However, the felt tip isnt as thin and flexible. You basically need to 'lie it flat' in order to make a pigmented black line. I would say it's really not bad for $8.5, but just dont have the hope that it would be nearly as any close to the dollywink/Lancome Artliner. 

NYC Blush in 08 Rose

One word - powdery! in a bad way. Thank for I got it for $1.5 only lol, it is powdery on the pan, and also powdery on the face. It does not last very long. Unless you're super in love with this highly dupable color, or want to see how a normal baby pink look on you, I really don't recommend you buy this to take up space in your makeup drawer.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand

I remember I loved this tinted moisturizer last summer. I recently sent Cathy one and she loves it! That makes me wanna use mine again. However after a year of being spoiled by BB Creams, I really cant use this again. It's too orange, does not last and makes my T-zone so oily after a few hours. 

Chanel Mat Eclat Double Perfection Compact in Medium Beige
If you had to money to splurge on some Chanel goodies, spend it on the new Vitalumiere Aqua foundation or the loose powder that I LOVE. This compact foundation is very thick and also drying on my normal skin. It does almost too much for the coverage and makes me look dead haha. Stay away from it!
