Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation (I20 & I40): This one is my HG foundation, and unfortunately (devastatingly, really) discontinued. I typically mix 2-3 parts of the lighter shade to 1 part of the darker shade depending on the season and how light or dark I am. I could go with I20 in winters. I used up one of each shade the other month. I only have two I20 and one I40 left (eep). I hate looking for new foundations but I will really have to get onto it soon. I love the compact, clean packaging and unlike a pump or tube, you can get every last drop out. I’ve rambled before about how I love the liquid formula and finish. This foundation is amazing! I talked about this previously in an empties post.
Burt’s Bees Pink Grapefruit Refreshing Lip Balm: This is my ideal lip balm texture. I’m struggling to find alternatives to Burt’s Bees since they’re no longer cruelty free.
Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara: I love this mascara and this was my second tube after a few years. It’s brilliant for short Asian lashes – it holds shape, lengthens like woah, and adds some volume. The lengthening fibres can get out of hand sometimes and I have to carefully remove some, haha. It comes off fine with my usual makeup remover oil, but won’t smudge at all during the day.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: I received a deluxe sample from Mecca (with the same wand as the full size). The formula was too heavy for my measly lashes, and the curls drooped immediately under the weight. It was also a bit clumpy. I wasn’t a fan, despite all the hype.
