40 Beauty Q&As

This is embarrassing. Karen and Shabby has once answered this same questionnaire 9 years ago here and here. NINE YEARS, JOIZ! Where was I?

Ok. Ok. I was a total noob to beauty, skincare, and makeup back then, alright? Now, after 9 years, I can confidently say that… I’m still a noob! 😅 BUT I’m now a more confident noob (that’s a scary combination, right?).

Anyway, I have no excuse, I really don’t. I just never got around to answering the questionnaire and I’m doing it now.

Yay?

Review: Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation

In the initial release of the collection with the MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation palette in the official website, the palette sold out fast. I wasn’t sure if it would be available again. I think (and still do) it’s a limited holiday release, so I was a bit disappointed to miss out. To my surprise, Sephora Philippines had it. I quickly ordered the palette the moment Sephora PH announced they already carry the brand. The MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation is my first Pat McGrath eyeshadow palette. 馃檪

Review: Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation

The Dior Forever Skin Glow is a new range of foundation under the Forever line, which was released early this year. It is actually a reformulation of (my holy grail) Diorskin Forever foundation. But other than a velvet matte finish foundation, they also released a radiant finish variant.

My shade is 2W

Description and ingredients

The new Dior Forever foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump. I like its new bottle design because it’s not bulky and easy to store and even pack for travel. It contains 30ml of product and has SPF35 PA++.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Creme

One reason I was keen on summer season was so I can use the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Cream. Its fragrance is just perfect for the season.

In the website, the body cr猫me is said to be a seductive, sun-kissed fragrance of Bronze Goddess. I don’t know the scent of a Bronze Goddess, but OK. LOL! Seriously though, its scent reminds me of summer, sand, and water.

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

NARS Eyelash Curler

Nothing grand or even glam for my first post this year.

I meant to publish today’s review sometime in the last week of December, but I was busy and (mentally) exhausted to blog. Anyway, this may not be grand or glam, but at least I’m already blogging at the start of the year. 馃榾

I was never a fan of eyelash curlers. Be it by me or another person, my eyelids would often get pinched or my eyelashes don’t really curl up. So I didn’t bother anymore until I got to use an eyelash curler again when I had my makeup done in my favorite store. Curled up lashes really do make a difference.

My Guerlain Post-Birthday/Pre-Holiday Haul at a Glance

Happy Holidays, my loves!

I am the epitome of the stereotypical millennial with low EQ for not stopping myself from buying a few Guerlain beauties as my own birthday gift last month. I can also consider these my Christmas gifts to myself since I got some of these Early December. But if you visit our Instagram and see what other things I have purchased, can we really consider these Christmas gifts as well? Really?聽😜😅

Let’s not overthink it, here they are…

NARS Wanted Velvet Lip Glide Set

Another NARS release, which was a surprise to me as I didn’t see any news of its release, is the Wanted Velvet Lip Glide Set. I like a lot of NARS lip products, most especially the Velvet Lip Glide. I knew I had to have this set (with Becca from porepatrol) the moment I saw this in store. 馃檪

Lancome Matte Shaker in Completely Nut! and Plum Plum Girl

If you’ve seen my Instagram post on these Lancome Matte Shakers, I mentioned that these shades Completely Nut! and Plum Plum Girl are my first Matte Shakers. The Sephora sale last December 2017 for it was such a good deal that I nearly bought all the available shades. I’m part proud that I only bought 2 shades, but disappointed at my self-control. XD I really ♥ the Matte Shaker formula.
