I'm so happy to write the Monthly Favourites post for May, since summer has officially started in this corner of the world and it's time for sunshine and bronze!
今個五月要feature甚麼產品我早已有心水, 哈. 原因是夏天已降臨地球的這個角落, 五顏六色的妝物是時候出動了!
Left to right, top to bottom
Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel - To be honest, I wouldn't have bought this if not for the discount, but I'm so impressed by this blush bronzer. Bronze Corail looks a bit dark/muddy on me so I opted for Bronze Rose and just 2 sweeps of this on each cheek, it gave me instant cheekbones and a sun-kissed glow.
ORBIS UV Cut Sunscreen on Face Light SPF 34 PA ++ - This should be my 8th bottle of tinted sunscreen which also doubles as a primer, I can't live without it during summer. Texture is watery and absorbs quickly, not sticky at all. The tint is light so it's suitable for all fair skintones. This holds my makeup and controls oil pretty well, hence my 8th bottle.
DollyWink Pencil liner in Brown - This pencil liner has been on my HG list for months, doesn't smudge, glides on smoothly, matte.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer - Got this while I was in the UK and I'm glad to have stumbled upon an outstanding drugstore concealer that is comparable with my previous HG - Canmake Cover & Stretch UV Concealer. Texture just about right, not runny, blends easily to cover dark circles and blemishes.
Korres Quercetin & Oak Anti-Aging Primer - This primer has no SPF but it makes the face feels smooth and velvety (WITHOUT silicones!) prior to makeup application. Not to mention that it smells a lovely orange scent. Perfect for heading out during post-sun hours!
Dior Addict Lipstick in Tokyo - Not bright pink, not orange, not over-the-top (read: obvious). It's not a nude shade but perfect for everyday use, Tokyo goes along well with just any other eyeshadow/blush colors. I like the texture of Dior Addict lipsticks, glossy and pretty moisturizing (ahem Chanel Rouge Coco Shines, I'm looking at you).
Topshop nail polish in Zealous - The dear Elaine sent me this and I loved this creamy half-neon pink shade, pink shade with an edge. The shade speaks for itself: pink doesn't necessarily mean girly.
Bedhead 4-Play eyeshadow in Foolproof - Got it from a giveaway and I had no idea Bedhead makes eyeshadow! This quad = dupes for Urban Decay Naked Palette, I kid you not. If you're a big fan of neutrals, don't miss out this quad. Color picks up easily.
Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel (古銅修容+胭脂)- 老實說如果不是有優惠的話我本來沒有打算買的, 不過用過之後, 每天我的手不自覺拿這個來用. 另一個顏色Bronze Corail 對我來說比較深色, 所以最終選了Bronze Rose. 只要掃 2下, 顎骨即時出現, 好像曬太陽過後在面頰的健康古銅色.
ORBIS UV Cut Sunscreen on Face Light 防曬液 SPF 34 PA ++ - 這應該是第8瓶了, 夏天絕對不能沒有它. 質地清爽, 不油膩, 是很好的防曬和打底霜. 控油度和定妝很理想, 所以不斷回購使用它.
DollyWink 深啡色眼線筆 - 之前幾個月也有feature過的, 不脫色, 順滑, 無閃粉.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear 遮瑕膏 - 在英國時買下的, 出奇的好, 能妣美我一直使用的Canmake Cover & Stretch UV 遮瑕膏. 想不到開架式品牌都可以很impressive, 質感不會太水, 容易推開, 遮黑眼圈和暗啞一流.
Korres Quercetin & Oak 抗衰老底霜 - 沒有防曬但能令妝前皮膚像絨般柔滑 (請主意: 不含矽成份), 市面很多的底霜含有矽, 不是人人的皮膚都受得了. Korres 以天然成份自居, 這支底霜帶橙味清香, 適合太陽下山後時分出外用!
Dior Addict Tokyo 唇膏 - 不粉紅, 不橙, 不會太鮮豔. 雖不是裸色系, 但絕對是每天都能用得上的顏色, 可配合任何眼影/胭脂色調使用. Glossy得來亦很滋潤.
Topshop Zealous指甲油 - 這顏色是Elaine給我的, 誰說粉紅一定要是很女孩的顏色?
Bedhead 4-Play Foolproof 4色眼影 - 一直不知到Bedhead有妝物, 但這個4色眼影完全是Urban Decay Naked Palette 的複製品! 如果你是大地色的fans, 不可能不喜歡它! 上色度不錯.
