Sunday FOTD with messy brows

This makeup was done real quick. The eye makeup is quite messy and I haven’t groomed my brows because I’m letting them grow. Maybe I shouldn’t have posted this, but what the heck… I still look human and I like this look. 😀

Oh, my face reacted to the bb cream.

Estee Lauder and Paul & Joe Liquid Concealers

I’ve only used two liquid foundations ever. Instead of separate posts, I’ll just make one long one.

Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer in Medium 03

Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer

This is my first liquid concealer (but not exactly that in the picture) and it was a gift from either my Mom or Grandma’s sister. I forgot from whom. Anyway, the first time I used it, I was an instant convert to liquid concealer. Coverage is great for the dark area and fine lines under my eyes. Longevity is 8 hours and more if the day is good. 😛 Its consistency is thick and it settles quite fast, so I need to apply quickly. Estée Lauder, as we all know, is a high-end and costly brand. I finish this concealer to the last drop. But for its worth, this tube can last for months on.

No beauty buys in Switzerland

I did not buy any beauty products in Switzerland because everything there is beyond my budget. But I received from my Aunt these Jasmine by OPI nail polishes and Estee Lauder eyeshadow palettee.

I was able to save money from not shopping until my Changi Singapore Airport layover on my return flight.

Second quarter empties

Currently in Singapore now, waiting for my flight to CH as I finalize this post. I’m excited to get the chance to sleep. I’m hoping I’ll be alone in my seat row. 😀 Anyway, these are my empties from second quarter this year.

Clairol Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo

Clairol, BCL, Vitresse

I hoped this would work for me. In the long run, it didn’t. A few days into after using it, whenever my scalp would get sweaty, it would itch like crazy. An itchy scalp is unbearable!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Copper

I use a couple of lip glosses this summer. One of them is this Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Copper. Estee Lauder lip glosses are one of my favorites. This shade included. 🙂

I’ve had this for a long time now. I’m glad it hasn’t gone funky yet. ^^;;;

Estee Lauder Nail Lacquer Rosa Rosa

Rosa Rosa was my nail color before I gave my nails a break since they were getting a stain and yellowish. I have the sample size of the Estee Lauder Nail Lacquer which I think is enough for me. It takes me a while to almost never in reusing colors.

Rosa Rosa is a slightly-muted rose color nail polish. This is the kind of red you would prefer for any day.

Truly a ‘high gloss’ from Estee Lauder in the shade of Honey

The Estee Lauder Honey High Gloss is light honey/very light copper shade with lots of gold shimmers. Mine comes in that “Not for sale” size.

Estee Lauder High Gloss in Honey 001

Estee Lauder High Gloss in Honey 002

The lip gloss has lots and lots and lots of gold shimmers as mentioned, but they’re not gritty and it doesn’t get messy especially when the lip gloss is gone. Those shimmers actually intensify the gloss to a pretty finish.

Swatches show color. This is actually sheer, but buildable to a really pale honey/copper if you want pale lips with shimmers. 😀 Longevity is quite good. I could still feel the gloss even after a moderate meal. Tackiness is no issue even.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil and Artist’s Eye Pencil

I’m reviewing two eyeliners today — The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil and Artist’s Eye Pencil. Both are good eye liners and are better than those I had before (also from the same brand). These don’t sting when my eyes get wet. 😀

Estee Lauder Artist’s Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Brown
Reviewing this first because I’ve had this longer than the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil. 🙂
