My favourite things from May
1. My Beauty Diary mask in Japanese Cherry Blossom
I first got to try this variety thanks to Yasumi, and loved the smell, so I had to pick up a box on my vacation. It has a lovely cherry blossom smell - not too overpowering, and more pleasant than the Bath and Body Works version. The mask itself is quite hydrating and soothing as well. For some reason this version isn't sold in the Asian supermarkets here.
2. Mary Kay Ultimate mascara
Already reviewed here, but to sum up I find the mascara adds just the right amount of volume and length. It doesn't clump at all, and doesn't smudge easily either. Perfect if you want a natural but better look.
3. Marcelle Minerals eyeshadow in Playa
I didn't think much of this eyeshadow at first, because it creased easily as an all-over lid wash. However as a brow highlighter it performs superbly. The colour is a beiged champange with some shimmers, just right to highlight under the brow, and because it is a loose shadow it blends easily with whatever colour you use in the crease to soften any harsh edges.
4. Etude House Peach Cheek Blusher in 05 Happy Peach
Great blush for spring - it adds a hint of peach colour to your cheeks. Best suited for lighter skintones.
5. Canmake cream blush in 07 Coral Orange (LE)
This product has to be one of my favourite blushes ever! The consistency is perfect - easy to blend, not too greasy, and doesn't break me out. The colour does not have any shimmer nor is it fully matte, but it has a glow of its own.
6. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Pageant
I'm loving bright pinks for the warmer weather, and this is a gorgeous, pigmented fuchsia pink. Definitely a must if you are considering trying out the Lip Tars. Be warned though, it can stain your fingers if you don't wash it off promptly.
