MAC + Sephora + Bath and Body Works + Drugstore Haul

Oopsies another haul… and a rather big one. I only meant to buy one thing today… and end up with way more! I am running out of my usual make up remover (Lancome Bi-Facil), so I planned on trying out MAC’s cleanse off oil, since people have been raving about it. The girl at MAC recommended Cleanse off oil Tranquil, the only difference is that it also contains lavender and camomille, which helps calm the skin and reduce redness, it costs the same as the regular cleanse off oil ($12CAD for 30ml). I also got sucked into buying a lipglass (i have no idea how), I have never tried the regular MAC lipglass, and it is pushing my limit in terms of stickiness, but the color is so gorgeous that I caved. I ended up getting it in the shade Lychee Luxe. It’s a coral-pink with golden shimmer. Perfect for summer time!  Continue reading

Eye Of The Day Vol. 1

So it should probably be Eye of The Week really. I have been wearing the same make up on my eyes for a while and I just love how easy it is and how it turns out so pretty! (Well I think… LOL!)

(Sorry for the under eye circles… totally in need of a good under eye concealer… any suggestions?!)

My whole entire make up routine in the morning takes around 7-8 minutes, from primer to lipstick. I feel like that’s a pretty quick routine… which is important for me since I always sleep in and still want to get to class on time. I am so glad i picked up the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette last month. It’s been making it effortless to create any neutral eye looks that are appropriate for class! There are certain shades that I gravitate towards more, and those are the ones I am featuring in today’s EOTD. I actually took these pictures after 7 hours of wear.

So here’s my EOTD
– Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original) — all over lid
– Snakebite from Urban Decay Naked2 (deep gold-toned bronze) — outer 1/3 of lid
– Suspect from Urban Decay Naked2 (shimmery light bronze) — inner 2/3 of lid
– MAC Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz (Black with gold shimmer)
– Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black

Saturday Love

So… I just realized that my posts are kind of sporadic and don’t really have a routine so here’s my first attempt of having a more regularly posting schedule!

Here’s a list of things I have currently love this week! I think this is a pretty good way to wrap up the week!

I currently love…

1. MAC Pearlglide Liner in Black Swan

I got these couple days ago when I found out the MAC Vera Collection’s release date got moved up. I actually got both Black Swan and Undercurrent. Black Swan may look ordinary when you see it but it looks absolutely stunning when you swatch it. It’s a black with blue tone and silver glitter. I have never seen any other colour like this.

This is the first time I tried any pencil liners from MAC and I am pleasantly surprised by the formula. It is extremely soft with excellent colour payoff. I tried it for the first time yesterday and there’s absolutely no tugging when I put it on and it stayed on for 14 hours with no smudging until I took it off. It’s opaque in one stroke, don’t even need to go over it for the second time! I thought I would have a really tough time taking it off since its staying power is so good, but turns out my cleanser can easily do the job!

I used to be in love with Urban Decay’s  24/7 Glide On Pencils (I still am), but I think I might have found a new love in terms of eyeliner!
