Though I was idle for quite sometime in blogging, it doesn't mean that I'm not into make up anymore. I do the grocery shopping all the time at home so I always see what's new in store, well its because I use drugstore makeup only other than couple of MAC items I have. Anyhoo, for 2010 I used so much of these products and it means its my favorite right? Lets start with my foundation I use everyday and until now.
I use MAC Studio Fix Fluid everyday until I found an alternative which is Revlon PhotoReady. I want to save the MAC as much as I can so I use the Photoready everyday at work. I use the Golden Beige and Medium Beige for my skin tone it doesn't make a difference to me. Not shimmery as others claim it. The studio fix fluid is too dark on my skin tone during summer but now its winter I can actually use it and by the way its in NC40 shade, I don't know why it should be the other way around.
After applying a thin layer of liquid foundie, I dab it off with Maybelline Dream Matte Powder and its in Medium 2-2.5 shade. I use it everyday and its my second pan, I need to buy some more, when I am on rush I just use it with brush and blend it all around my face, works fine for me.
For my concealer Nyx comes the best. The Concealer in a jar works best for me, covers up pretty much everything blemishes and under eye area. I bought several concealer according to reviews but I end up going back to this jar. I got it in TAN shade. Drug store eyeshadow base Loreal Decrease works fine, staying power is 4 hours but the eyeshadow still there except my outer corner color is not define anymore until when I get home from 8 hour shift. There's bunch of eyeshadow primer now coming out from drug store brand so I will try some more products.
For my highlighter, when I ran out of my MAC MSF I tried Physician Formula in Light Bronze Pearl and works the same, can't even tell the difference! I'm sure I'm gonna buy again, almost done with it also haha.

For eye shadow, I've been using this a lot! The Nyx 10 eye shadow palette on their Runway Collection in Secret World is a daily eye shadow for me. I used it a lot last Fall.They are pigmented, easy to blend and mix and match the colors for me. I have the other 2 palette but this is my favorite. For a neutral look, I like the Physician Formula Baked Collection in Baked Sands, pigmented, can be use wet or dry, its the go eye shadow for me when I can't think of colors to blend. I love purple and I have the Revlon ColorStay 12 hour eye shadow in 20 Sunrise Sunset, its a good buy for the color pay off is awesome. Lastly, I have the Maybelline Eyestudio in Khaki Craze, beautiful color for me, 2 colors, dark green and a mix of golden and and green tint in it, the shimmers are light not too bold. I'm a sucker of eye shadow so you'll probably see me blogging about them most of the time :)
For my Mascara, other than the Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara, I use the Stilleto for few months until the Falsies Volume Express from Maybelline came out. Love it, makes it look like falsies as it claims especially if you have long lashes.
I think I need to end with this one, facial moisturizer, cleanser, makeup remover will be in another post.
Thanks for taking time to read. Have a good day!
