Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Prismatic Amethyst

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Prismatic Amethyst

Becca has finally brought out the glow I want. I've always admired the whole highlighting range of the brand but thought it was missing a cool-toned one with soft hues. I've acquired quite a few of new highlighting powders lately, but Becca Prismatic Amethyst is indisputably the crown jewel of my collection. The color and the finish is perfect for my liking. I shall not want (okay, maybe I still want a full size Pearl pressed).

FOTD - Chanel Codes Élégants & Ardente

FOTD Chanel Codes Elegants & Ardente
Chanel Spring 2017 Codes Élégants & Ardente

It's not even March, but it feels like Chanel (and every other brand) will roll out the summer collections any day now. I might as well show the look before it's too late (wink), although I don't think I will limit these gorgeous colors to spring makeup. Both the eyeshadow quad and the lipstick look distinctly warm but once worn neutral in a certain way, which is almost weird. My opinion hasn't changed since my initial post with swatches, and I'd highly recommend them for those who don't usually wear warmer hues yet want to try some.

I mean, how cute is this..?! I love makeup with pretty packaging but animation or overly cutesy stuff is not my thing at all. Still, these gifted cuties made me squeal. I believe they are from the season 2 (called "Lazy & Joy") of Holika Holika x Gudetama collaboration which seems ongoing due to the popularity. I can clearly see why. It's not just the adorable exteriors. What's inside is pretty awesome, too.

FOTD - Blue and Brown



You probably see no blue nor brown here. This is a sort of signature look for me - smokey eyes, pink cheeks, and pink lips, and it is very easy to achieve with this old(and discontinued) Yves Saint Laurent Pure Chromatics quad in 03, which has equal parts of blue and brown. I have been adventurous with makeup colors trying out different warm-toned shades and some latest trends like reddish eye makeup, but this is my go-to look on a regular work day.

PUR Cosmetics Bare It All 4-in-1 Skin Perfecting Foundation

I was sent new foundation samples from PUR Cosmetics to try. I usually opt for light coverage ones with liquid consistency so I admit that I wasn't sure how this creamy (almost pasty) foundation that provides a full coverage would work for me. The new Bare It All foundation is actually very impressive, and I have been wearing it all week. (I had a very busy week and this long lasting foundation helped me a lot to get through it.)
