First and foremost, let's send a prayer to my bank account due to the excessive shopping spree I did this month. Your girl is going broke! Will she ever learn how to manage her money? I'm not quite sure. In the meantime, let's forget about that and see a few beauty bits and bobs I've picked up recently!

SEPHORA COLLECTION CREAM LIP STAIN | RM46

I feel like Sephora lip creams are soooo underrated. They pretty much outperform luxury. Not to mention they're one of the least expensive liquid lipstick in Sephora. Definitely a fav - it doesn't dry out my lips, pigmented and has a huge, wonderful shade range! And the color that I got is so pretty!  It's like in the middle of a warm and cool-toned rosy mauve color. Perfect for everyday wear.

MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY 24HR FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION | RM54.90

This is the Dream Foundation. It has everything that I need in a foundation - full coverage and long-lasting. The coverage, longevity, and the finish are so much better than Fit Me foundation and it suits my oily skin very well! Thank god. Usually, almost all of the foundation I've tried before always gets collected on my smile lines, but this one doesn't! One thing though, the shade I bought was slightly darker than my skin tone plus this foundation does oxidize. I hate when foundations do that.


FRESH ROSE DEEP HYDRATION FACIAL TONER | RM107

I was so skeptical after reading mixed reviews about this toner and usually, my skin will freak out when my skincare product contains roses but you know what, I decided to give it a go anyway. Turns out, it's actually really, really nice. It doesn't feel harsh, doesn't burn my skin and so hydrating! I just love a good hydrating toner. It's like my skin savior.

IN2IT LIP POPPIN' TINT | RM16-RM18

I am not so much a red lippie kinda gal but this red is surprisingly my cup of tea(?) It feels moisturizing on the lips, non-sticky and long-lasting. It also smells (and tastes) pleasant, which is great. I also love the fact that it is a pigmented lip tint because one swipe on the lips delivers good pigment and coverage.

CATRICE LASH GLUE | RM23

To be honest, I didn't expect this lash glue would work well but because I was so desperate to find a lash glue, this would do. And you guys, it is surprisingly a pretty good lash glue lol. I wore it on my graduation day and god knows how long my day was and my lashes were still intact until I reached home at 10pm! The moment I was removing the lashes, no single glue residue left on my eyelids or my real lashes. The formula is amazing and so is the price.


KAYMAN BEAUTY COALFACE SOAP | RM35

Oh. My. God. I've heard nothing but gorgeous reviews about this local facial soap so I've been itching to try it myself. I would say that it's absolutely my current favorite facial cleanser. It's made from pure honey and activated charcoal that will eventually make your skin flawless and smooth. Which, I can almost see and I'm so excited! My internet friends weren't lying when they said this facial soap works.

KAYMAN BEAUTY ROSA GLOW TREATMENT ESSENCE | RM89

Another local-made product that does wonders. I bought this because I want to get rid of my chickenpox scars faster lol. Since it contains alpha arbutin, might as well give it a try and I didn't regret my decision. Not for one bit. I use it every night without fail and then wake up with glowing skin! That's the best part of using it at night.

What's your recently hauled beauty bits?

What's your recently hauled beauty bits?

Hello, gorgeousness! It's about time for another empties post. I absolutely love reading empties posts so that is why I love making one. If you think I should continue this series on the blog, let me know. Without any further ado, here goes!

TOO FACED PRIMED & PEACHY COOLING MATTE PERFECTING PRIMER | REPURCHASED - Mentioned

I absolutely love this primer! It is a matte and pore-filling type of primer. If you have large pores to cover, you gonna love this primer. As far as oil-controlling power, I would give it a solid A-. It also has this very nice cooling effect upon applying it to the face that I really like!

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E HYDRATING TONER | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

One of the best hydrating toners I've ever tried! If you are suffering from breakouts or whatever skin issues you may have, please consider getting a hydrating toner. It's SO GOOD for your skin. And this baby right here is a miracle in a bottle. My skin loves it so much. It gives me enough hydration to treat and calm my problematic skin. Highly recommend!


IN2IT COVER SMOOTH LOOSE POWDER | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

If you're on a budget but you still wanna get yourself a loose powder, look no further. I've said this many times that IN2IT makes great makeup. I always go back to this powder even though there are tons of drugstore options out there. Although this powder can make me look like I have makeup on, I don't mind it. I want to look like I have makeup on.

CERAVE FOAMING FACIAL CLEANSER | WILL NOT REPURCHASE - Mentioned

I totally get the hype around CeraVe products because most of them worked well on my oily skin such as this facial cleanser. It's a really nice facial cleanser to have because it doesn't irritate my skin, it's really gentle and the ingredients are on point. But! I'm currently using another phenomenal facial cleanser that I think just stole my heart completely. I might talk about it on the blog soon.

WARDAH SUN CARE SUNSCREEN GEL | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

I have gone through bottles and bottles of this. I really need it in a bigger size. Anyway, if you are looking for a sunscreen that contains no alcohol, you can give this a try. My skin hates sunscreen that has alcohol in it which a lot of them has it. The moment I knew that this sunscreen contains no alcohol, it immediately became a favorite.

TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONTOUR CONCEALER | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

A lovely concealer that is supposed to not crease into fine lines. That's my typical answer when people ask me about Shape Tape which I do think it works and it's the best. Nothing beats Shape Tape in my opinion. I wore it almost every day and I even wore it on my graduation day. I trust Shape Tape with all of my heart (getting a little emotional right here). It really is an amazing concealer.

CANMAKE STAY-ON BALM ROUGE | WILL NOT REPURCHASE

My aunt got this for me from Japan. I wasn't really into this lip balm at first because I think it's just as the same as other lip balms that I've tried. Frankly, not quite. It performs like a lip gloss, almost?? The consistency and texture are different from what I used to. It's actually really nice but I have tons of other lip balms to finish before they have the chance to expire.

IN2IT MAKE-UP STAY MINERAL SETTING MIST | REPURCHASED - Mentioned

I just love IN2IT, you can tell. I was also not getting paid saying nice stuff about IN2IT. It's all purely my true and honest opinion. Anyway, this setting spray is love. There, I said it. It is extremely lightweight. After spraying it once I was finished doing my makeup, it made my makeup look perfect. It definitely took away those powdery-looking face and revealed a smooth and flawless makeup. I love it!


GARNIER MICELLAR WATER | REPURCHASED - Mentioned

Double-cleanse, people! I always, always use this to remove my makeup before going in with my usual facial cleanser. I went through bottles of this and boy was it the only micellar water that my skin absolutely loves. Although I can feel my skin is a little dry and tight after using it, it never really causes me to breakout. It does its job like no other. I cannot live without this product, to be completely honest.

MARIO BADESCU FACIAL SPRAY WITH ALOE, HERBS AND ROSEWATER | WILL NOT REPURCHASE - Mentioned

I hate the smell of this spray. It straight up smells like your sneeze, really. And the nozzle is not the greatest. It did spit a little and I absolutely hate when that happens. Despite the smell and the nozzle, the product itself is okay and I will consider trying other face mists that Mario Badescu has.

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E GEL MOISTURE CREAM | WILL REPURCHASE BUT NOT NOW

I fell in love so hard when I first tried this moisturizer. I knew I'm going to love it and the love is still going strong. It is one of the great moisturizers for my oily-combo skin gals out there.

MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL MASCARA | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

When my internet friends said this mascara is awesome, turns out they're not lying. This mascara truly is awesome. I feel like you're going to love it as well even if your lashes are pretty sad like mine. I wish I had been using it and obsessed with it since a long time ago, but the fact that I'm late to the party and I just have been using it this year baffles me.

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E MOISTURE CREAM | WILL NOT REPURCHASE - Reviewed

To be honest, I can count on this 'just-basic' moisturizer for my oily skin. It's not half bad but my current moisturizer is better because a skincare routine can be so complicated and time-consuming that it is great when you come across one that performs phenomenally in just one step.

MAYBELLINE INSTANT AGE REWIND CONCEALER | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

Drugstore makeup that outperforms luxury? Yes, please. I don't feel the need to explain myself again why I love this concealer. This is such a staple in my makeup collection. From the coverage, texture, packaging to the price - I absolutely love.

CLINELLE PURESWISS HYDRACALM LOTION | WILL NOT REPURCHASE

This hydrating toner is okay. It is not bad but not great either. I don't like the smell of this toner - it smells like a bed of roses. But what I like about it is that it absorbs to the skin so fast though the consistency is more on the thicker side. Oh, and it didn't cause me to breakout too. Thank god. But I guess, nothing beats my Vitamin E hydrating toner from The Body Shop.


CAUDALIE GRAPE WATER MIST | WILL REPURCHASE BUT NOT NOW - Mentioned

I freaking love a good refreshing and lightweight face mist. This does give me all that I want in a bottle - hydration, moisture, cooling effect etc etc. But having a face mist like this seems a little excessive for me as of now since I want my skincare stash to be minimal hopefully by the end of this year. It is a great product though, not gonna lie.

IN2IT LASH DEFINE WITH FIBRE MASCARA | REPURCHASED - Reviewed

Another drugstore gem! If you love long, big, fat, black lashes, you will love this mascara. I know the wand itself looks like something you cannot trust to give you big, fat lashes, BUT trust me it works. It works on me beautifully. It gives me the nicest clumpy lashes. You know sometimes clumpy lashes can look ugly but this won't make you look ugly. It makes you feel like you have the most gorgeous pair of eyelashes. That's how I feel every time I wear this mascara.

Phew, there goes my beauty product empties. That was a lot of empties! I hope you enjoyed anyway and if you have used any of these products mentioned, please let me know what you think of them.
