As I mentioned in my last post, I'm trying to save up for upcoming traveling plans. That means more travel research, less makeup shopping. So when I recently got bored of my daily makeup routine and felt the itch to browse the makeup counters after work, I instead hopped on a bus straight home (to avoid the tempting sales, of course) and shopped my stash instead.
Sure enough, I re-kindled my love for 3 products which I have almost forgotten about. I love them and although they are a bit beaten up packaging-wise, the products themselves are good as new, and make for a nice change to my usual products that I have been reaching for these days.
Too Faced Naked Eye Palette
Not to be confused with the Urban Decay Naked Palette, this one has a lot more lighter, cooler neutral shades, plus a lovely pink shade ("satin sheets") which I love using all over the lid. I also love "pillow talk," "like a virgin," "birthday suit," and "lap dance."
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in "By Candlelight"
This MSF is very similar to "Soft and Gentle," which is a beautiful highlighting MSF in their permanent line. I like that "By Candlelight" is pinker, so that it acts as a blush as well. Although it was limited edition, check eBay and keep your eyes out at MAC, because they seem to re-promote this baby every now and then. Also if you can't get hold of it, "Soft and Gentle" comes close and is also amazing. Oh MAC, why do you always make the best products limited edition?
Benefit Box Blush in "Dandelion"
This was probably my first blush, ever. Although the typical Benefit box blush scent has faded by now (I've had this blush for years!), this will always be my favorite no-brainer perfect pink blush. It's the perfect matte, natural, rosy pink that looks good on almost anyone.
P.S. I just got promoted today at work :) I guess that deserves a little shopping as a treat?
