Current Makeup

A long overdue makeup post.

I regret not doing one before my Japan trip. :deco13: I had a lot less eyeshadow (I only had Naked 2 & the Shu palettes for a while,) but also had a few new things that I’ve since finished such as my Paul & Joe pressed powder. This is all of my current makeup. I swap out shadows weekly depending on my mood. Blush as well. Sometimes I get really obsessed with a certain combination or look but that hasn’t really been the case in recent months so the variety suits my tastes right now.

I haven’t picked up much new since Japan. Instead I’ve been using what I have and hitting pan left & right. :) Then there are my holy grail items I’ve been repurchasing for years like Benefit’s Get Even Powder.

Japan Makeup Haul

Saturday May 19, 2012 comments   

Did the clothes; now the makeup.

For quite a number of months now I’ve been really obsessed with brown makeup shades. Brown mascara, brown liner, brown shadow. And right now it’s very easy to find brown makeup in Japan. Even brown liquid eyeliners. So .. this is pretty evident in what I picked up.

I know these palettes mostly all look the same. lolol
Pink and brown. But they’re all actually pretty different. Different pigments and mostly different level of “sparkle.” All the palettes I purchased were shimmer or glitter. I avoided glitter for a while but I want them again after being surrounded by so many while there!

All brown except Lash King and the mascara base. The mascara base is serious business! Takes a bit of extra time to remove. Lash King is REALLY good at long & thick lashes.

Finally I have liquid brown eye liners!
Surprisingly no two are exactly alike. Different shades, different pen width. I really love the Love Switch one because it’s a very soft brown. But the deep browns are good for stronger (but not deep black strong) looks.

The size of the COFFRET D’OR surprised me. I had seen them rated highly online & in magazines so I wanted to pick up one or two but the size … the case is like the size of a moonpie! So I settled for peach :) It’s an incredibly shimmery blush + highlighter.

I regret not buying all 4 KISS blush palettes. Great pigment and wonderful matching highlighter. The brush is a good useful shape that compliments the palettes design.

I’m really happy I got the lash curler after seeing a CM for it while there. I got a limited version that has hearts on it. It takes longer to curl my lashes than the usual metal curler but the curl is more voluminous, noticeable and lasts all day (and night) long.

Even the lashes I bought were brown :)

Various polishes I got including Ettusais’s Gel Top Coat which was everywhere. I’ve used it a few times already and it’s pretty good! I think it’s slightly better than Majolica Majorca’s gel top coat. Lasts just a little longer and doesn’t scuff as badly. I like gel top coats, not only for the look, but they tend to “crease” rather than chip which is far less noticeable.

Being there really got me in the mood for pink sheer polish…

This is from the brand Bison who also makes the popular sweat bath salts amongst other things. Popular in RanKING RanQUEEN.

OK these feet peeling type masks REALLY WORK. My feet are so, so soft now. Softer than any pedicure spa has ever gotten them.

A few photos while still in the hotel.
I was going to take snaps of all the packaging because I ditched nearly everything in order to save room. But then … I forgot to/didn’t care. As much as it was hard to ditch the pretty packaging for the ride home it really helped conserve space.
