Monthly Favourites: May

Another month already?? Seriously time has really been going by really fast...
I don't have a lot of favourites this month, since I've been MIA not only on the internet (youtube/blogging) but in real life as well. All I've been doing is homework and studying -- Universtiy summer courses are HARD CORE!

Face:
Studio Tech Cream Foundation (NC30):
I bought this several months ago and kind of ignored it when I got my tubes of Studio Sculpt foundation. Although I really like Studio Sculpt, I have come to realize (after revisiting it) that Studio Tech is truly my HG foundation... hey I guess my search is finally over!
Studio Tech is compact and convenient and it gives me the perfect coverage. I use my 109 brush to apply this foundation and I don't cover every inch of my face with it -- I concentrate most of the product in the middle of my face (T-Zone ish area) then buff outwards.
The reason why I love it so much? Not only does it give me just the right coverage and the illusion of flawless skin, but it looks great in pictures too!~ This might actually be a con for some but since it doesn't contain any SPF ingredients in it, my face doesn't cast a ghastly white mask when the ingredients reflect the flash in cameras.
Studio Sculpt DOES contain SPF(15) -- which is why even though it looks GREAT in person, in pictures, it looks like i'm not wearing the correct shade (even though I am).
Oh and the fact that it lasts all day/night for me is a major bonus as well =)

So Ceylon MSF:
I have really grown to LOVE MSFs and looking to/trying to collect them all as they come out... So Ceylon is a popular one and even though I've had it for quite some time now, I never really gave it much attention. Now that the summer months are approaching (and I absolutely hate tanning of any kind... real or fake), I need to give myself a glow that isn't too obvious or fake. So Ceylon is the perfect bronzing shade that really gives a beautiful sunkissed glow without it being a glitter bomb (as past MSFs have been).

Lips:
Florabundance Lipglass:

I got this one on a whim a couple of weeks ago (I know, I don't always post my hauls) and it's the perfect compliment to Creme d'nude (cremesheen) lipstick. It's super pale, so glopping a thick layer on would be a bad idea... but a light coat gives you such pretty, shiny and nude-ish lips ^^

eyes:
dipdown fluidline:

I wanted dipdown for a long time and I finally got it about a month ago (don't remember if I ended up hauling this). My initial intention for this purchase was for eyeliner, since sometimes I think black is too harsh for everyday... but then buzzfuzzbunny suggested that I can fill in my eyebrows with them! What a great idea! although I don't do it ALL the time since dipdown is a very rich chocolate brown colour, so I limit my use on the brows for night-time. During the days, I like to use my "quite natural" paintpot to fill in the brows...

Ardell Demi Wispies:
I LOVE THESE LASHES!!! I have always been more into the very cool, spikey and unnaturual looking false lashes, because they give a very dramatic look to your eyes... I've never been drawn to the more "nautral" looking lashes, just because they don't look as pretty in the packaging. Desmi Wispies are on the natural side, but my gosh do they look great on! I used to only wear lashes on special occasions, but with demi wispies I can wear them everyday without being too over the top -- LOVE~

Hey! I totally agree Ardell Wispies are AMAZING! I also love Mac #7 lashes too.

I was wondering if you're going to the mac warehouse sale next weekend June 5,6,7. I'm trying to get a hookup but it would be for a Sunday though. Have you ever gone to the sale on a Sunday? I hope everything isn't gone by then....lol It would be my first time going. =D
