Drugstore happiness : Bourjois Air Mat Foundation, Catrice Absolute Matt eyeshadows, Wet & Wild Brow brow powder, Megalast Lip Color
I should never be left alone near makeup counters. That much I know.
In any case I have been eye-ing Catrice's really cute eyeshadow palettes for a while. They really do look weareable and gorgeous. I couldn't decide between the Absolute Nude and the Absolute Matt; but chose Matt in the end. And surprisingly really loving it. I've mixed and matched them with my existing eyeshadows and gals, I can tell ya, this is a really good bargain buy. Because you can use it on its own or mix it up with your other colours to dress up or down. I especially love the 4th and 5th colours from the left of the palette: I use it to add dimension and depth either for a natural look, or blended in the sockets when using other striking, colours as well. Lighter colours for eyeshadows seem to always be a bit chalkier in general so the first two colours might not get as much love from me. Still such a steal; was around RM22 during the sale.

The Wet & Wild Brow Kit is a continuation of my more recent obsession of doing my eyebrows. I never used to do my brows. Until I discovered how much more polished I looked with touched up brows. Confession: I had a RM5 brow powder from Daiso for the longest time before that. Then a smattering of eyebrow pencils. I just realised this must be only my second brow product in powder format; this one was RM24.50. When I tried this, I didnt think the lighter powder would actually be quite dark. The wax was useful to keep the brows in place for a bit but may be a bit too hard. I foresee my search for the perfect eyebrow product continues...
As for the Wet & Wild lipstick, I just finally caved in to get a second one of my fav Megalast Lip Color in Rosebud. They slightly changed the packaging since my very first Megalast Lip color purchase way back then. Back then I had to buy them online. Now the Wet&Wild stuff are available in SaSa. The plastic casing of the lippie looked a bit sturdier somewhat. I'd bought a whole bunch back then because they were really cheap at RM16 online. This one was RM22 at SaSa though. My fav colours were Rosebud and Cherry Picking. Till today I still gravitate towards lippie colours similar to Rosebud O_O
Old habits die hard. Anyhow, till the next post!
