So we are in July and how are we all today? Looking forward to another of my beauty post? Yay so I have decided to do a monthly selection of what I pick to use this month. The reason why? It is because I have too much clutter stored in my drawers and often forgot about them besides whats on the desk. I had been doing random monthly switches on and off and try to stick with whats selected for the month - so to make sure all purchases had been put to good use! This would range from jewellery to beauty products etc. I think this would be better than a monthly favourites in my opinion.
I am going to start with jewellery - this pendant necklace in blue plus an amethyst ring.
I often luv any pendant that can be opened and fit a photo in there, this tiny blue pendant is just the perfect thing, although I do not have any intention to fit anything in the little compartment, but these gadget are my luv! I got this from Le Corner from Paris, the are currently doing a sale so check out for your piece there!
As for precious stone rings are another of my favorite, I bought this at a jewerlly place at Causeway Bay for under HKD600 and I luv the clarity of the stone, the setting to the very dull ring itself. I need to share that I had lost a pink rose quartz ring and I am trying hard to find its replacement!!!! Still pains me!
Beauty products, here we are, I am going to start trying out the all famous Sofina Beaute sunscreen - I have always heard lots of good comments but never tried their sunscreen. Lucky I got myself a little sachet sample which will be my goto that last me 2 days......I hope to try it out on bare face as well as a full make up face.
I would also like to bring out my Cloud 9 whitening cream which I had been forgotten for a long time. Just a brief note - it can be used as a moisturiser after toner as well as a whitening mask. It claims to be very good to remove the melinin in our skin so to remove any scars and spots on our face......I want to be a good girl to get rid of those spots on my face......seriously. I will also attached a link of my old post on this product.
You will also see this little cute box of Sensai Suisai - beauty clear powder - I got this by recommendation on a visit to Japanese drugstore in Japan whilte travelling. It had been a hit a few years ago and I have been seeing post lately on this for summer, so I decided to be a bit eager again in clearing my pores hoping it will minimise the pore on my face....hhaaa. Well it is in powder form, so you can add a box to your normal cleanser and just wash your face as per normal. It claims those powder would help to clean your face and I hope with prolonged use may help. I have attached their official link in Japan but if you do a google search a lot of review would also appears. It is a subsidiary of Kanebo.
Finally, cosmetic products yay yay yay! So I wanted to use this nude, beige tone this month since I recall I got a Nars Miss Liberty blush doing my last blush blog and it has been long forgotten. It is a more shimmery shade with champagne colour. You can check out my old blog post for more.
HERA Creamy Stick Eyeshadow, it is again one of the abandon products but will be out of the dust this month. It is a compliment to Nars Miss Liberty blush, you can use it for eyeshadow, undereyeliner or to add a bit of shine on the tip of your eye. It is a multipurpose pencil with champagne colour.
Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Frivolous - so again I got a huge stockpile of Nars lipstick/lippencil and I intend to pick one for the month. This in Frivolous is more of a light pink with a bit of gloss and glitter. It helps to form this nude look that I want this month. This lip pencil contains vitamin E so I luv it cos it is very easy to glide on.
Finally is the Smith's Lip Balm in Minted Rose - this is a keep item at any home and I feel bad in neglecting her luv for a long long time so this is back this month on my work desk!
I have added a swatch photo showing the texture of some of the products covered in this post. Starting from the left, cloud9, Nars blush, Hera, Ilia and Nars Lippencil. The cloud9 swatch maybe not showing too much since is a white paste and turns clear on skin.
