It's time to talk about my favorite products of the month again. In August, I loved using:
♥ Revlon 1" hair crimper iron -- I bought this useful tool from Amazon.com. I take away the very top layer of hair on top of my head, and crimp a few bottom layers with the crimper iron to give my hair more volume. Thanks to Fuzkittie for sharing this wonderful idea. For more info, please check out her video :)
♥ Kiehl's Blue Asrigent Herbal Lotion -- I don't use this as a toner for my whole face as it does contain alcohol, and is very drying for the skin. However, this works wonders as a spot treatment for any breakouts! I just soak a cotton ball or a Q-tip with this toner and dab it at wherever needed on my face. Also, it does an amazing job helping to shrink the enlarged pores on my nose after doing a nose strip or facial. Another good use for it is to use it as an aftershave to prevent discomfort or ingrown hair. I would keep using this product, but it is unlikely I'll run out anytime soon because I bought a huge bottle of it!
♥ Stila Precious Pearl Palette -- Edna's present for me from our most recent meet-up :) She originally wanted to put it up on her blogsale (please check it out, she has MAC HK items too!) but when she knew that I wanted it, she packed the palette in my goodie bag! Thanks so much sweetie! The colors are simply beautiful, each shadow is infused with genuine crushed pearls and the casing is made with real mother-of-pearl, how cool is that!
♥ Kevin Beautymaker Aquamarine Hydrating Eye Serum -- This is my first BM product. I am loving it so far. The gel is very light and super easy to absorb -- a few dabs under my eyes and I'm good to go!
♥ Revlon Matte Lipstick in 003 Mauve It Over -- I did a post on this lipstick here. This is a beautiful MLBB (my lips but better) color that's good for any day.
♥ The FaceShop top coat -- I read a review from Nikki/Askmewhats a while ago. So when Edna and I took a trip to San Jose last month, we stopped by The FaceShop and I grabbed this. Edna generously paid for my purchase too and saved me from embarrassment because I didn't have any cash in my wallet. :p
♥ Koji eyelash curler (#73) -- I've heard good things about this inexpensive yet effective eyelash curler. It works wayy better than all the other curlers I've tried before (I have not tried the Shiseido or Shu Uemura curlers yet!) and grabs all my lashes at once. You can get this curler from Mitsuawa market.
♥ Stila Sheer Pressed Powder (Medium) -- My HG touch up powder at the moment. It goes on lightly and really keeps my shines at bay for a good 4 to 5 hours. I talked about this product here.
So these are my favorite products from the month of August. What are some of your current favorites? Please share :)
Yesterday was 1/2 off Wednesday at Dave and Buster's. The bf had lucky hands again and won another jackpot on the spin-the-wheel game, yay more stuffed animals for me! :)
Guess what these are:
all natural, organic bean sprouts grown by ME! Can you believe just a handful of mung beans with a little water everyday turned into this much bean sprouts! I read an article online a while ago about how to grow your own bean sprouts at home so I did this for fun :) Now the problem is, how do I finish up this much bean sprouts? hahahaa :D
And of course, Mia of the day:
