Things I'm excited about
Last week, I was complaining to Kira that I am running out of content. "It's such a struggle! I have nothing to write about! How am I going to maintain my two posts every weekday routine?", I moaned. The universe must have heard me and decided to send a deluge of stuff all at the same time. My place is a mess right now since it's full of press material!
I'm not complaining of course! I only wish I have a minimum of three faces so I can churn out reviews faster. As it stands it's going to take a bit of time to go through everything I received from all the kind brands who support this blog (thanks so much, you know who you are!). In the meantime, I'd like to share some of the things I'm excited to try! Out of everything I got, these are the most intriguing and promising. My beauty product sense was tingling as I swatched these.
Skincare and illuminator in one? Why not! Estee Lauder recently launched their Idealist line which features a Cooling Eye Illuminator and an Even Skintone Illuminator serum. I've been using the eye cream, I am always amazed that the applicator is cold even though I never put it in a fridge. I can also skip under eye concealer with it!
I squealed (internally!) when I received the Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup yesterday. I'm on the hunt for a new HG powder foundation and who, knows, this might be it! Initial swatches look great. The fact that it's compact mineral powder with SPF15 already makes it a winner in my book.
I've been hearing about the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for years, and now I finally have my hands on it. Thanks so much Cathy, for this unexpected gift! I was so, so touched.
The Mary Kay Foundation Primer is a silicon-based gel primer that mattifies and softens pores and lines. I'm psyched to use this with the Clinique foundation above.
Watsons' latest skincare range called H Bella smells AMAZING. It's a drugstore line but it doesn't have the cheap chemical smell of its counterparts. There are three scents, but I like the Protect & Nourish sub-collection more than the others because of its floral-berry theme.
It's my first time to try a Vaseline lip balm, so imagine my delight that it's unlike anything I thought it would be! It's light and the rounded applicator works well in distributing the balm.
Last but not least, I have the Dove Foaming Make Up Remover. Rumor has it that it's the best-selling makeup remover in Japan! Been trying it for a couple of days and I'm ready to write a review (which will be the next post after this). Stay tuned!
And that's it. Which of these products are you most interested in?
