I'm not one to be crazy over shopping but lately things have come to a serious slump. The other day I was at a website, hoping to buy some skincare and beauty products as a birthday gift for myself but hours later, the cart was still empty! I'm a practical person, although my impulsive weakness do overwhelm me sometimes. There are things that are nice to look at, but would I use them on a regular basis? I tend to overanalyze sometimes. Nonetheless I do get necessities like that 6 packs of facial cotton pads recently. I had intended on getting just 1 but there was a promotion, I lugged home 6 jumbo packets! Thank the heavens the quality is good and can last me for at least 2-3 months.

Anyway I have been looking for that perfect peachy blush but months later, I still have no luck! Over the long weekend I had been deliberating about getting this particular blush, but eventually got another shade after much consideration (lol)

Palgantong Kamayaki Cheek - Cappucino Brown
The one I'd intended to get was Passion Orange but changed my mind at the last minute after swatching this lovely pan. The highlighter has a good color payoff and is a potential disco hazard. The blush on the other hand, is of a peachy pigment with subtle sheen. Sheer but buildable.

It took at least 3 swipes for the color to show up but one swipe produces this peachy nude that adds a bit of color without adding pinkness. I personally think it looks great for my skintone, but would prefer a matte blush.

Bourjois Kohl & Contour Mineral - Noir granit
I ventured to the Lancome counter to get that Kohl Pencil in Black Coffee but it was out of stock!! So I ended picking this up, but not before getting frustrated at the counter. After testing this out, I got so fed up that all 3 different kinds of kohl pencils were jumbled up in its section, and took me a while to find the desired one. Also the cap wasn't transparent and the stupid price tags and store sensors had to block out the shade tag!

The texture is smooth and glide on my eyes without any tugging nor pulling, unlike E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner which is super dry and color-stingy (I had difficulty getting it to show up on any surface!)

I've unconsciously accumulate 4 of these notebooks. Aren't they beautiful? I use them for work, and each color represents separate projects. One aspect that keeps me coming back for more is the ziplock at the bag that might come in useful someday.
