May – June Love It Or Leave It

A week of packing, then another week for moving and 2 weeks of putting things in order  – these are the reasons why I was MIA last month but thankfully, I am back! And today, I am sharing the products that I have been testing for the past 2 months.;)

❤️ Hit List ❤️

1. Cover FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment

  • Aside from minimising pores and shine control, this primer helps to heal the acne.
  • I noticed that it also works well with the acne marks like when the skin has a texture when the acne/pimples are drying.
  • Apply this then add the foundation/BB or CC cream or concealer and your face will look flawless.

2. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel (Combination to Oily Skin)

  • FINALLY! A moisturiser that works on me!
  • I am really happy that I tried this. It did not break my skin nor had irritations of some sort.
  •  My skin improved and it becomes more hydrated.

3. Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

Mario Badescu_Facial Spray and Special Healing Powder

  • I use this before I apply my makeup and primer and it keeps my face moisturised.
  • I also use this after using toner during the day if I am not wearing makeup.
  • Can’t let the day pass without using this!

4. Makeup Geek x MannyMUA Palette

  • This is the only palette that I have been using since May!
  • They have warm shades but they are very wearable. Check out my review here.

5. NARS Illuminator in Copacabana

  • This is a beautiful product and it helps me create a subtle glow on my face.
  • You can use mix this with your foundation or use on the high points of the face and I use them both ways.
  • I love mixing this when I am using light foundations such as It Cosmetics CC Cream and NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint.

GOOD but not GREAT

❣️Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

  • I have mixed emotions for this. I love the brightener/illuminator but I’m not sure with the concealer.
  • I use for almost a month and it won’t replace my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer.
  • I did my best to blend it right away (using fingers, sponge and brush) and I also made sure that I apply translucent powder on top to avoid creasing but after 4 hours, it would still crease on me.

❣️Lancome Juicy Shakers

  • I mentioned this in my snapchat feed and the product does what its supposed to do but other than that I was not wowed.
  •  It is not sticky nor has a strong smell. In fact, it smells delicious but paying 36 SGD for something that does a so-so job, uhmm… this will not make it to my next shopping list.
  • I did not include it to my Leave It list because I like it and I’m still using it. I think that it is a perfect match with my Jeffree Star’s Rose Matter.
  • I like it but I don’t love it and I don’t hate it either.
