Following up from yesterday's post, we paused at mostly face products. I call the products in this post a necessity, others may see them as nonsense or rubbish. Take your pick!
1. Guerlain Rouge G in Orange Euphorique 45
This bright coral / orange based lippie perks up my otherwise dull and makeup free face. Love using it during travels or just on days when I can't be bothered to apply loads on my face.
2. Bourjois Effet 3D Lipgloss in shade 52
For luscious lips. I need more of these.
3. Dior Rouge Serum in shade 355
A birthday gift from dear Lily, I use this for touchups wherever I am regardless of what colour lip I'm wearing. Contamination galore! :p but I just love how versatile this product is. Applied sheerly you get just the faintest hint of colour but the gorgeous baby pink shade can be layered on too. I haven't been without this ever since I received this. Thanks darling!
4. Guerlain Altoum Shine Automatique (700)
Shine baby, shine!
5. Set of three lippies from Shiseido (2012 Aura Veil Collection)
For variety minus the weight. :p
Here comes the slightly random bit:
1. Shiseido's Perfect UV Protector
Something I will never be able to live without.
2. Kool Fever sheets
I always feel woozy whenever I'm feverish and this recent discovery has really helped alleviate the wooziness. I wore this out of the house with grandma and garnered quite a few stares. Hehe.
1. Urban Decay Primer Potion
This helps eyeshadow stay on my oily lids. Nearly all day. Can't attend events / be going round town with creased eyeshadow, can we? 😉
2. Acqua di Parma Getsomino Nobile Eau de Parfum sample
My grandma wants everyone to smell good. Hence the perfume.
Next up, tools of the trade!
All brushes are kept in pristine condition thanks to The Brush Guard.
1. Shiseido's Foundation Brush
Love this! I do not really need to use a brush with the Diorskin Nude foundation but this is one tool I cannot bring myself to travel without. I usually smooth the Nude foundation over my skin and blend well with my fingers but I still will pick this brush up and lightly dab it across my face because I am weird like that. I'll be giving one away in my next giveaway so keep your eyes peeled!
2. Guerlain's Meteorites brush
Size is perfect for travel and picks up just the right amount of powder.
3. Sigma travel-sized blending brush
For eyeshadow. Note the size too.
4. Shu Uemura eyelash curler
For pretty eyelashes. :p
1. Origins Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind
Only stuff other than Olbas that clears my blocked nose and woozy head.
2. L'occitane Lavande hand sanitiser
Smells good and works a treat. Lasts a very long time too.
3. Dequadin Pastilles
A get-well-soon gift from my facial therapist! I love my facial therapist and we have spent many a session giggling over absolutely nothing at all. Most of you would relax and be lulled to sleep by your therapist's rhythmic massage skills but I've become so fond of dear Cassie that I can't bear not seeing her for more than one month! She's an amazing masseuse too so that always is a plus.
4. O.P.I Avoplex High Intensity Hand and Nail Cream
This. Smells. Amazing. I massaged granny's hands with this and she couldn't stop smelling them. She kept on sniffing at her hands. Thank you so much, Steph! You have created two Avoplex hand cream sniffing junkies! At one point I truly thought grandma was high on something as she had a very distant, dreamy look as she sniffed her hands hahaha!
Phew!! Thats finally the last of what I packed on this overnight trip. The amount of stuff my parents helped me transport over to Penang for the wedding is another story to tell for another day.
