I finally whipped out the camera to take photos of my own, the last post contained a collage in a stocking which took a ridiculously long time to edit so I'm never doing that again :)
What is this you ask?
Not only is she easing the burden of periods by ensuring our pads and tampons stop flying around in our bags, but she's enriching the lives of those young women whose periods no longer stop them from going to school and receiving an education! Double win, I urge you to support Moxie.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - HG
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer - HG
$7US or $12.95AUS on eBay here, it's nothing short of incredible because it enhances eye shadow pigmentation as well as prolongs their wear. My eye shadow clung on for 12 hours through crazy dancing and tears a few days ago at formal and I forgot I had the issue of oily eyelids. A+++, highly recommend!
MOMMA (mineral makeup)
Awesome UNSW Silicon Wallet - HG
This silicon wallet is magic. It fits the essentials (money, licence, transport card) perfectly. It also prevents my phone from tipping over the edge as it always does. And finally there's no sticky residue left over when it's time to peel off. Love love love.
ELF Lip Exfoliator
It's so much more convenient and cleaner to use than the traditional lip scrub, though I sometimes feel it's a waste of metal because I am powering through this and I just got it at the beginning of November (will probably last 2 months or 15 applications, whichever comes first).
Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer in Light/Clair (11ml)
|Shoulda cleaned that lid, mhm soak up that grime.|
It's creamy yet doesn't crease and lasts as long as I need it to (5-6 hrs). This imparts nice coverage and hence really does make me look more fresh-faced, this only came in two shades: light & medium (medium is quite dark, would suit ~ MAC NC/NW30 & above. The light shade highlights my blemishes so I really only use it to conceal under eye darkness on my NW25 skin (I've never been shade matched so it's my educated guess as I have cool-toned medium skin).
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in 004 Black/Brown
Physician's Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black - HG
These pens rolled so much I had to chuck them into one photo.
This'll be any novice’s best friend in eyeliner application. Thick, thin, straight, flowery artwork, whatever you want on your eyes – this is incredibly easy to work with :) I haven’t noticed longer, thicker lashes but I really don’t mind because it's so freaking impressive as a long-wearing, waterproof eyeliner. I love doing wings on my eyes with the assistance of sticky-tape so I can be as sloppy as I like and it still turns out decently.
Montagne Jeunesse mask
|Hard to look cute when it's burning so bad|
How does one relax with a tingly, stinky (like toilet cleaner), wet and oversized mud-dipped cloth on their face? It dried leaving a white clay film on your skin (cream 'stache above) that you had to wash off anyway. I was on the verge of tears from the pungent scent which stung my eyes (evident above) and it irritated my skin then broke me out. I just wanted nice skin.
EOS lip balms
Twas a good month. How about you? I'm super nosey so let me in ;) Any lovers/leavers this month?
PS: Embarrassing update - my mum saw the plastic bottle of Coogee sea water beside my desk and threw it away. I'll have to hit up another beach soon hey?!
PPS: Knocked one thing off my wishlist - that NARS eye primer. Beautyheaven's beautorium event will give me the opportunity to knock off the Indeed Labs Microfoliant too - it's 700 points though and I was hoping to save up (only on 1,400 points) but I am a person of impulse and who knows how long I have left to live so I'm gonna order it! Looking forward to the freebies they throw in too :D
Have a wonderful week! Don't forget to maintain a positive attitude to help you continually conquer any curveballs thrown your way.
Good things are up ahead this month, and the next, and the next...perpetually.
