Laura Mercier Stardust Radiant Glow Palette

The Laura Mercier Stardust Radiant Glow Palette is (still) my favorite all-around/multi-task palette. It’s difficult for me to set this aside when I need to rotate my makeup, which I do weekly.

The palette was released in part of Laura Mercier’s holiday collection last year. I fell in love with it at first sight, but I didn’t buy it right away. I tried hard to be a “wise consumer” by sleeping it off. Maybe I was just taken by how pretty it is. Then when I went on a vacation, I couldn’t stop thinking about it to the point I had to contact the SA for a reservation while still out of the country. 😂

Review: Guerlain Terracotta Route Des Îles

This very beautiful Guerlain Terracotta Route Des Îles Tan Enhancing Bronzer (22g) is a limited edition release with Guerlain’s summer 2018 collection.

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion

I meant to update on my project pan last year and give a list of products for project pan this year, but I’ve been testing out makeup since I “shopped my stash” that I forgot.

Anyway, today I will review the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion.

This cushion wasn’t on my wish list nor did I have any interest in it, but Guerlain had this irresistible sale that included this. I seriously need to stop getting tempted by big offers. XD

Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++

I have a couple of Biore sunscreens that I loved, but they eventually irritated my skin. It’s disappointing because they worked so well under makeup and kept my face matte for nearly eight hours. So I had to do another research and discovered through another oily-skin girl the Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++. 🙂

Anyway, in Canmake’s website, the gel sunscreen is described as so:

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

I mentioned in our November-December beauty favorites that the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder is the best affordable setting powder.

The plastic compact feels slightly sturdy and light. Easy to slip in a purse or vanity kit for touch-ups, but a separate puff or dense powder brush is still needed. The latter works better btw.

November-December 2016 beauty favorites 

Better late than never. 😆

The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. Not only with the Christmas rush of gift shopping and/or get-togethers, but work deadlines too, which is difficult when you’re already feeling the holidays. I didn’t get to switch beauty and skin care products when December came because I was very busy to bother. Besides, almost everything I used in November I ended up liking so much that I didn’t want to switch yet. Even so, there are only a few that I really loved and would consider favorites. I think the same goes for Joiz. 🙂 I’ll begin with hers.
