Entry: PERSONAL FAVOURITES, PERSONAL CHOICES. Jul 31, 2008



My personal favourites very from year to year and according to my current skin condition. Nevertheless, i so stick to some die die must have items because they have been good to me for many-many years.

Skincare

Cleanser : Jan Marini Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser for it's skin softening & breakout combatting abilites. Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser for it's cheap price, reliability and does not dry my skin nor does it cause pimples.

Toner: Have never been a fan

Moisturizer: Not a fan either. But my Retin A cream moisturizes the skin and i do not other things much.

Treatment: Have been a hardcore Retin A fan for around 8 years. Jan Marini Bioclear is next in line. Jan Marini is harsher and more drying for my skin. Both works well to minimize acne and oiliness of the skin.

Spot Lightener: Biomedic Conditioning Gel.

Makeup Remover: I love Lancome Bi-Facils or Lancome Effacils for the eyes and lips. For the face i usually use Cetaphil.

Makeup

Concealer: Shu Uemura Pro Spot Concealer is the best i've tried. Gives full coverage and the texture is just right. My shade is 5YR or something like that.

Foundation: Giogio Armani Luminous Skin Foundation for a bare skin look (with medium coverage) and Lancome Teint Idole Foundation for full coverage. Both are superb and worth every penny. I wear #5.5 for GA and #03 for Lancome.

Compact Foundation: Giorgio Armani Lasting UV Compact beats all the other compact foundation i've tested or bought. The texture is so fine, the colour is just right (#5) and it gives a really good coverage. I don't think i will be changing powders for a long-long time.

Blusher: I like MAC Sunbasque for a peachy-bronze look, Tarte Dollface for a pink cheeked look. Elianto Peach for a fresh peach look and Tarte Tipsy for a red cheeked look. Heheh..all colours..I even had plum coloured blush once from YSL but i sold it off because believe it or not i did not the heart to use it because the casing is sooooo beautiful. Even came with a suede pouch to keep the blush case in.

Mascara: Generally Lancome Mascara's perform well. I like Flextencils for a natural curl. Nowadays i use Clinique Lash Power Mascara which is very true to it's name. It's also cheaper but the tube tends to sememeh a bit.

Eyeliner: Lancome Eyeliner (pencil) is my mainstay.

Eyeshadows: I rarely use any. I like the variety that MAC has but Lancome makes a finer textured and higher quality shadows. So Lancome is my fav and yes if i use eyeshadows, they're from Lancome.

Under Eye Concealer: I don't really conceal my dark shadows. I use a brightener instead. Lancome Flash Retouche Pen is great! It's also great for shading the nose.

Lipstick: Lancome Juicy Rouge gives a glossy shiny colour and does not dry up my lips. During my scrooge student days i wear Maybelline Water Shine which is also great. My fav Juicy Rouge is shade #352 which is a very pretty pink colour and shade #339 which is a nude peach colour. My fav Maybelline Water Shine is called Glazed Red Apple.

Lipglosses: I love love love MAC Lipglasses..any pink/peachy shades will do but my fav must be Gitane - a warm brick red colour which lights up my face in an instant. Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Innocence is also a rare find. The prettiest baby doll pink. Lancome Juicy Tubes in Peche is also another fav.

Fragrance

EDT - I am in love with Clinique Happy in Bloom and Narsico Rodriguez for Her. Both are divine in their own way. For a lighter scent i like VS Pure Seduction and VS Sweet Daydream.

Body Mist - My absolute fav must be Bath & Body Works Sparkling Peach splash. It's soo beautful! Next must be BBW Hello Sugar. Oh god! It's scrumptious.

Body Lotion - Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Lotion and Vanilla Bean Noel lotion is to die for!

Christmas is probably the most special day of the year for children. One thing that makes it special is the popular tradition of Santa Claus. ,487574,http://beautycounterplus.blogdrive.com/comments?id=2
