Victoria's Secret Mist

I went to San Francisco early June, went shopping and I found Victoria's Secret, but I didn't buy any underwear there, what did I buy then?

Yes, dream angels heavenly, it's a mist, and to my surprise it's quite cheap, US$15, not bad. Although it's plastic bottle, not glass, it's good enough for me. The smell is nice, a bit like the male Jean Paul Gaultier I used to love a long time ago. The smell is light, just enough for myself and people standing close to smell it, not strong. I like it.

And I have to say that this is the first mist I bought for myself. I don't put it on every day, just sometimes when I feel like it, I don't want it to be my signature "smell", you know how smell would remind people of you, i mean fragrance smell, not body odor. :P It would just be boring if I am just a particular smell. I like myself to be more diversed and unpredictable...haha!



I like this dress

Don't you just like this dress? And it's Kate Hudson, it just shows her lovely body and accentuates her honey skin colour. And the black graphic sculpts her waistline so well.



My new BB cream

Here it is, my new BB cream! Etude BB Magic Cream SPF 30 PA++
Etude is a Korean brand, like I said before, BB (Blemish Balm) cream is originated from Germany, popularized by the celebrities and ladies in Korea. The reason I prefer this to Missha is 1. the design of the bottle, 2. the texture.
As you can see from the left and centre photo, the bottle is slimmer than the Missha one, and it's easier to squeeze the cream out with the compress bottle mouth. And when squeezed out, it's like the right photo. The texture is watery, yet still perform the even colour tone function. Below is the demonstrating photo I took.

You can see that my face is brightened and colour so even. It might not be as good as other thicker texture BB cream in covering the spots, but it's good enough for me, i prefer watery.

The trick in using BB cream is to wait for about 5 minutes before applying anything else on top, like eye shadow, blush...etc. And it's ok to also apply BB cream around your eyes. It wouldn't hurt the delicate skin around it (but do apply eye cream beforehand though). The reason for waiting 5 mins is that BB cream normally takes a while to get into the skin, and then when the skin absorbs it, it will start the tone-evening and other functions it possesses. You can see in the photo very obivious that my forehead colour difference is gone and became brightened.
BB cream normally doesn't have different colour or just 2 or 3 colour tones, this is because it simply just adapts to your skin colour after a while, so it doesn't really matter what its colour shade is.
My daily routine for a light and natural make-up is:
1. Dermalogica day bright SPF 15
2. Dermalogica total eye care SPF 15
3. Etude BB Magic Cream SPF 30/PA++
4. Blush
5. Eyeliner
6. Eyeshadow
That's it, I don't need to use concealer or powder, and a simple and natural make-up is done and I am ready for work!
It's takes only about 10 mins or less for me to get the make-up done. Hassle-free! Go get your own BB cream now!


BB Cream

The first time I heard of BB cream was about 2 years ago, and I thought that it's a cream for babies, well, BB cream, it makes sense right?! But then I found out it's originated from Korea, BB stands for Blemish Balm, its functions include:

1. Moisturize

2. Repair

3. Evening face tone

4. Oil control

5. Whitening

6. UV protection

7. Anti-wrinkles


The first one I bought was a bottle of Missha, it's quite good in the sense that it evens my face colour, so my face looks more awake and brightened, and it's also good for moisturization, I just need to put on a thin layer of UV cream and then BB cream, it's enough to last for a 8-hour day or more. I have been using this Missha one for like a year until I found a better one...
It's to be revealed tomorrow, stay tuned...
