I feel like I've really started to venture out in makeup this past year, filling my collection with a new array of different brands and being more open to trying out new products. Believe it or not my collection was quite stable for many years, mainly because there wasn't anything that interesting being put out by companies. Things seem to have picked up speed  in the past while, with so many brands releasing more innovative concoctions so I'm certainly look forward to a bright and sparkly makeup world 2013!


  1. I really like this "best makeup" ! I discover new products (well, I follow your blog, maybe it's more accurate to say "rediscover" ; ).
    Will you do the same for skincare products ? ('cause I'm a junky one ._.)

    And of course, bonne année ! : D

  2. The blue sweater looks lovely on you ^^
    The wand of the Essence mascara reminds me of the Bad Gal from Benefit, huge!!! Didn't fit my eyes very well... I still have the one in plum but never use it, though : /
    I feel the same way about The Falsies from Maybelline, took me forever to get used to the wand and there are days when it's great and days when I want to toss it out. Great Lash is still my favourite, despite the formula being so wet, the small brush is perfect for my tiny eyes ^^

  3. Can't find the mizon bb cream here in hk. I'm itching to buy the candy doll products (concealer and blush) but they're so expensive!


Thanks for reading. Leave me some love ;)
I will reply back in the same post!
