Five Things for Friday No.2: Makeup I Plan to Pan

After much deliberation, hesitation and overthinking, I have finally decided which makeup and palettes in my collection I want to pan on this year — or at least empty some pans in the palette. The point is, I want to hit pan on a couple of these items because the last few times that happened, it has always been a pressed powder foundation. And to be honest, I’ve never experienced hitting pan on a palette. Continue reading

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette | Review

Happy 2019 everyone! I’ve got a lot of backlog to catch up on and I’ll be posting more often in the coming days. I didn’t expect the holidays to be busier than usual so I wasn’t able to plan posts ahead of time.

This Hourglass palette is one of the makeup items I looked forward to during the holidays. I thought I would not be able to get my hands on it because it keeps selling out and there was some trouble with the customs department here. I am glad this is 100% vegan as Hourglass Cosmetics continues its commitment towards being a cruelty free brand and pledge to become fully vegan by 2020. Now let’s get onto the review.

My Low Buy Plan for 2018

Makeup stash Jan 2018

Yes dear readers of mine, just as I’ve mentioned it on my New Year’s resolution list, I fully intend to be on a low-buy phase, both in the skincare and in makeup department. For the past few days, I’ve been trying to organize my stash and I found out a couple of untouched and slightly used makeup and skincare. Some I have completely forgotten about. In an effort to use them up, I’ve brought them out within easy reach.

Rather than produce a list of brands I won’t be spending money on — because let’s face it, if I’m going to take this seriously, it’s going to be quite a long list — I’ll be restricting my buys to brands I know have been special to me. I have carefully narrowed them down here and some with specific items only. Continue reading
