Painterly Paint Pot

Bought this on a whimp. All I had was pictures and swatched online. I wanted either Painterly or Groundwork. In the end I settled with Painterly. It’s a beige nude. It’s actually a cream eyeshadow which can be used as a base cause of the shades. It’s more brightening on my lids, so it’s nice. It gives my lids a neutral base. Usually I don’t use anything on my lids, so sometimes it will look oily. This prevents that. 

I got this at their sale at $30.40. The original price in Singapore is $38 for 5g worth of product. But I think that this can last forever. Not sure if it will go dry on me. I always tighten the cap real packed. Hopefully that will help. 


Air Patrol BB Cream Eyelid Primer

I’m not sure if benefit is still selling this. It’s a bb cream primer. It’s a yellow cream which is a bit more thicker base. As in it is harder to blend into the skin. I like that this has SPF and as an eye primer, it does as well as other primers I’d tried. I prefer those that are easier to blend. So I don’t like this as much. As a sample, 0.1ml, I can use this a few times, so it’s quite a good sample size despite the 0.1. 

My Daily Home Makeup Bag

Happy new year! Since I started work, I found that I don’t really have time to post as regularly. But I have lots of drafts that need to add in words to make it a proper post. So many of my post will be random and out of place, well worse than before, I can foresee that. So I apologize in advance that this blog is going to be more as what Singaporeans will call it “chapalang”.

So I wanted to share with you my makeup bag since forever. I love trying out new product, but there will some things that I just lazy to change out. In this case, it will be everything inside my makeup bag. This is not the pouch that I bring out with me, this is the one that I keep all my daily makeup in. I don’t use it daily, but I consider it my everyday makeup. So let’s take a look shall we?
I put everything in one small bag cause that is easier to haul over to my bed. I always do my makeup on my bed. I don’t have a proper dresser. Well, I used not to have, but now I do. (Just goes to show how long I have keep this post on draft.)
It is not much. But I do have every category I need. All my Laura Mercier product is in it. The foundation powder, concealer, mini powder, Jill Lowe concealer and Eucerin concealer are my face products. For cheeks I like to use my ELF blush and bronzer duo, so convenient. Until now, I am still using NYX eyebrow powder for my brows, see it lasted so long, and I did hit pan, but I should probably get a new one, right? I also will have a pencil for my brows as sometimes it is easier to use one. It usually be some Daiso product or my favourite ZA pencil.
For eyes, I have a mini eye shadow single as I don’t really use eye shadows daily. Oh, but I put my eye primer in the bag too. If I need to use to eye shadows, I just take out one of my palette or quad. Then mascara, this one it pretty much a staple. I will have at least 2 so I can switch it out. I like to have one natural one and one more dramatic. Then I will a travel size blush brush and an eye lash curler. Mine is getting quite old, but it’s so good. You cannot go wrong with Shu Uemura or Shiseido.

Lip product is the one thing that I will change out often. I usually will use whatever lip color I feel like on that day. So I don’t put them in here. But I will have lip products here cause you just have to remind yourself to use them.
So I just put one lip liner just for the fun of it. This is the Chantecaille lip definer in Discreet. A beautiful pinkish nude with a hint of glitter. It’s smooth and apply beautifully. A good lip product to be apply on its own. I love it.
I also have Cle de Peau lip gloss in shade 10. It’s a natural shade. Quite sheer actually. Brownish with golden glitter. I like the applicator. It just makes it nicer and easier to apply. Not a fan of the smell, the lipgloss is kind of sticky. See, a strand of hair is stuck to my lip. So I wouldn’t recommend it.
By Terry Or De Rose Baume Precieux is one of the most expensive gloss I own. Nit sure what it means, but it’s a limited edition gloss. Not only that, it claim to have real actual gold flecks in it. I mean it’s a gorgeous bottle. The light reflecting the gloss is just so pretty, like crystals and diamond in the sky, if the sky is light pink. It’s a clear glittery gloss, but the clear also has of a hint of baby pink. The glitters are gold and pink. It’s just pretty. Believe me when I say so.
Then of course it smells like roses. Putting on this gloss is just so luxurious. Applicator is a normal doe foot. The gloss is not sticky. It’s smooth and despite being sheer, do brings out the best of your lips. It can appear patchy when you have dry lips, but just rub them together and it doesn’t look bad. So not bad.
The only thing is that it hurts. I guess it’s the plumping effect. So this not only a gloss, it’s a lip plumper. A painful one. I love the tingling effect, but this one is just too much. So no, it’s not worth your money. Even though it said it has gold, but really I don’t feel it.

Shadow Insurance

I was debating between the Shadow Insurance and Primer Potion. No price for guessing which I pick. This wasn’t as raved as the latter, and the packaging makes it more hygienic I feel. Cause it’s a tube and you squeeze for the product to come out. Less contamination.

Other than its packaging, this is a creamy eye primer. I used just the tiniest amount for both my eyelids. If I put just a bit more, I find that it’s flaky. It just crease on me. So really a micro amount will do. It spread well over the lids. It is lighter than my lid. My lid color is kind of dark I don’t know why. So it hides the veins perfectly, giving my lids a clear base to work with. As an oily hooded lid person, I can’t live without eye primers. And I think I find one that will last me a lifetime.

Mica eye primer

What can I say? It is an eye primer.

It is the only one I have, so there is not much comparing. I do like it cause it does its job. It makes my eye shadow stay on much longer. It helps reduce the smudging. What else is there to say?
