Hey everyone! There hasn’t been much that went on last April. Aside from starting the Game Changer series and getting addicted to Wayne Goss‘ and Karima of Shameless Fripperies‘ Youtube channel, this month’s product round-up is a short list. Some are new and the others are products I’ve recently rediscovered.

The Newbies:

Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation (OC-1). A total favorite and holy grail material! I’ve set aside all my other foundations and I’ve been using this one everyday. All my thoughts here.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice. I finally found this shade at a Revlon counter. Or maybe I was just too distracted every time I come near one by the Lacquer Balms to explore the lipsticks carefully.

Alba Botanica Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel. This is a new addition to my skincare. I’ve been using this for two weeks now and I’m in love with how it smells, like a fresh glass of lemonade on a sunny day. I’m giving it a couple more weeks before I give a review.

Topshop Bronzer in Mohawke. I would’ve dubbed it the best bronzer except it doesn’t last that long but it’s matte and neutral. Read my review here.

The Rediscovered:

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation Primer. I’ve had this for a while now. Some days it works for me and there are days when it just seems meh. I’ll collect my thoughts and post a review soon, hopefully.

Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick in 169 Grege. Best MLBB for me. If you’ve read my post when I did the lipstick tag, Dior is one of my favorite lipstick brands and it all started with this shade.

Maybelline  Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze. My usual companion to any matte eyeshadow.

Oh, and I still can’t get over the amazing-ness of the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade.

In other news, I’ve been on an Ellie Goulding kick lately. Have you heard her new track with Seven Lions called Don’t Leave? It’s been on repeat in my music player for several days now.   name sign

  1. Hahahaha I still feel extra special that I’m one of the reasons why you bought the KGD foundation. Bahahaha! And oh, didn’t know that Ellie Goulding has a new album. Need to check that one out soon!


  2. Hey Nikki, oh yaaay Grege!!! I’ve been wanting to try something from Koh Gen Do, but I have absolutely no access to the brand here! Glad to hear it’s HG material for you! It’s always SO nice to find base products that work!


  3. Hi Nikki! I want Grege so bad too, I’m always stalking it at the Dior counter haha haven’t bought it yet trying to find an online store that sells it at a lower price. By the way, I know you’re quite busy but if you have the time sana you can post a review of all your YSL lipstick collection, it’s on my wishlist din kasi.=)
