Despite having an extensive makeup collection, and fairly well resourced in the accessorise department; there are times when I would still feel that something is missing and I need a bit of newbie to make me to look forward to getting nicely dressed the next morning.
So I had a few moments to shop in the past few weeks and found a few new bits that I've been obsessed with.
The Balm makeup bits are not easy to get hold of in HK so I snapped up this - In theBalm of Your Hands Holiday Palette when I saw it in a little independent shop recently. Oh wow this palette is sooooo beautiful. I love the fact that it has most of the Balm's most popular face products- blushers: hot mama, instain and cabana boy. The bahama mama's bronzer is something I've wanted to try for such a long time, it's BRILLIANT. I like that it doesn't make me look orange but gives a natural shading to my cheeks. It also comes with 3 eye shadows, the very famous Mary-Lou manizer (love the name!) and 6 lip colours. This will be anyone's perfect travel palette, good to go!
I'm a nail polish junkie so my nails might not be at their best conditions all the time. Cuticles are dry and regular trimming is definitely required. I like to apply this Nail Essence Oil by innisfree (A Korean brand) at night. A recent discovery as well which I'm pleased about. It's not greasy at all and absorbed so easily by my dry cuticles. I have also noticed a difference at the state of my nails. Love it and totally recommend it.
It's the festive season so I wanted to make an extra effort to add some accessories to jazz up my boring usually black outfits. I saw these types of earrings worn by many girls on the street and I really like the look of them. So I picked up 4 pairs to match with my clothings. They are special and unlike any earrings I have worn before. Both the front and back bits of the earrings are designed in their unique ways. It makes them look so much more interesting. I especially love this pair with red lips on the front and pearl baubles at the back- so chic and so stylish. I have been wearing all 4 pairs interchangeably, and feel so special in them.
What are your recent favourites? Have you discovered anything new like I did?
