Throwback: Favorites from January

Here is a look back at my favorites from January 2014 and 2015. Can you believe that 2015 is already 2 years ago!?

 

In January 2015, I liked:

Nichido Multiple Stick in South Beach (link goes to my review)

Nichido is a local brand in the Philippines. It is quite affordable, and I really liked this blush.

 

Nichido 7x Volume Curl mascara (link goes to my review)

This is another Nichido product that I enjoyed. And it was only $7!

 

 

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (link goes to my review)

LOVE! I really enjoy salt sprays in my hair, and the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is the original. It smells great, and the mist is distributed in my hair evenly. There are drugstore salt sprays available now, but I have a soft spot for this product.

 

 

In January 2014, I liked:

 

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours BB cream (link goes to my review)

Martha Tilaar is a local Indonesian brand, and I really, really enjoyed this BB cream. It was affordable, made my skin look even, and stayed on in the hot humid weather.

 

 L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows in Forever Pink and Sahara Treasure

I still love the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows, and I’m always on a hunt for new colors.

 

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee (link goes to my review)

This is a great line for people like me who don’t wear lipstick on a regular basis.  I especially like this color to tone down lipsticks which are too bright.

 

Neutrogena Wet Skin SPF 85+

I always buy a bottle of this when I go to Hawaii, and I end up using it all in the week or so that I am there. Spray sunscreens are very convenient, but liquid sunscreens seem to provide better protection for me. However, in the end, the key is to apply sunscreen regularly, so I’ll use whatever works.

 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my past favorites!

Throwback Thursday: Favorites from August

Here are my favorites from August 2014 and 2015. Apparently I did not do a favorites post in August 2013.

 

In August 2014, I liked:

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everlast BB cream (link goes to my review)

This was a really great BB cream from a local Indonesian brand. It is very affordable, had good coverage for a BB cream, and worked well in the hot/humid Jakarta environment.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer Treatment (link goes to my review)

I picked this up when I went to the US solely because of all of the hype online. I usually don’t like products with applicators that cannot be cleaned, but this product worked so well that I was willing to overlook it!  I never repurchased this because I have a lot of concealers, but I still think this is one of the better under eye concealers that I have ever used.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Elusive (link goes to my review)

I liked the color, but I ultimately decided that matte lips do not work for me!

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick in Blushed (link goes to my review)

Ahh… another product that was constantly in my favorites until I used it up! Unfortunately I couldn’t find Jordana cheek products when I last went to the US. If you want to try them out, they are available on the Jordana website.

In August 2015, I liked:

Shirt Cool (link goes to my review)

This is still a must have product for every summer. Spray it on your clothes, and the minty cooling sensation will last for about 30 minutes. I used up this bottle early this summer and have since repurchased a new one.

Daiso Ever Bilena eyebrow coat (link goes to my review)

I have a feeling that many Japanese girls use this, or some product similar to this… if they grew up in the “thin eyebrow” phase of the 90s. This product is meant to be brushed on to your eyebrows (or the areas on your skin that you drew on) to ensure they do not “disappear”

Thick eyebrows have been the norm these past few years, but it looks like thin eyebrows may be coming back soon.

Gatsby Body Wipes (link goes to my review)

Yet another must have product for the summer. This is the best body wipe on the market in terms of how cooling it is! I have a packet at home and a packet at work.

Sparkly Soul Headbands

I use these headbands when I run to keep the hair out of my face. They really do not slip!

 

Hope you enjoyed a look back at my past favorites!

Throwback Thursday: Favorites from July

This month, I am revisiting my favorites from July 2014 and 2015.  It seems I didn’t do a favorites in July 2013.  Apparently I have a habit of skipping favorites in the summer!

 

All links go to my past reviews!

In July 2015, I liked:

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup

I recently finished this foundation! I bought this because everyone was talking about it.  It didn’t feel special, but it blended beautifully, looked good on my skin, and lasted quite well.  I would buy it again!

L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup

 

Ahhh, this was one of my favorites in the summer for quite a few years.  It is a local Indonesian brand which I recommend.  It is also very affordable!
Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everlast BB Cream
I never repurchased this, but I did like how it made my eyelashes look.
Maybelline Volum' Express Pumped Up! Colossal mascara

 

Milani Eyeshadow primer

I recently started using this again, after I ran out of the UDPP.  This is very affordable and works well on my oily eyelids. I also love how simple the packaging is!

Noevir facial wash

I never repurchased this because it is VERY expensive.  Although this is a Japanese brand, this particular product is surprisingly unavailable in Japan.

Noevir Cleansing Crystals

 

Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder

I loved the product, but I hated the packaging.  The lid broke in several places before I used up the product.

In July 2014, I liked:

Gatsby Ice Wipes

This is one of my holy grail products in the summer. I reviewed this in 2010 and I still use it.  I use it in the summer when I feel sticky but don’t feel like taking yet another shower, and it makes my body feel cooler and fresher.  Definitely a must have!

Shirt Cool

This is a menthol spray that is applied to clothing, and will keep  you cool for about 30 minutes.  It is another must have for the summer!  I usually go through a bottle each year.

Biore UV Perfect Milk Sunscreen

This is one of my favorite sunscreens for spring and early summer. It is affordable, so that I can use it liberally.

Milani Shadow Eyez eyeshadow pencils

This was my favorite cream shadow for such a long time!  I tried to find it again when I was in New York, but I wasn’t able to.

Hope you enjoyed a look at my past favorites!

Throwback Thursday: Favorites from January

This is very late, but here is a look back at the products I liked in January 2014 and 2013!

For more information on each product, click on the links to go to my reviews!

 

In January 2014, I liked:

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

These are a long time favorite of mine, and I pick up a package whenever I am in the US. I have tried other makeup remover wipes since then, but these still win!

P1040524_final

 

Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Energy

This is probably my favorite Bath and Body Works scent. It smells slightly sweet, slightly gingery, and slightly citrus-y.

IMG_3728_final

 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye 

I have never really found an eye cream that I felt worked… except for this. It is a gel-like consistency, which works great on my oily eyes.

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everest BB Cream

This is a local Indonesian BB cream that I picked up after reading a few Indonesian beauty blogs. It had decent coverage and lasted even in the hot and humid weather. I was a little sad when I finished it!

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everlast BB Cream

 

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows

These have been a hit since they first came out, and I can’t stop hunting for the next greatest color. My current top favorite is Amber Rush, but there are quite a few colors to choose from.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush

 

In January 2013, I liked:

Lush Olive Branch Shower Gel

This is one of my favorite Lush shower gels. I’ve found that I really like bergamot scents, as well as other woody scents which are not overly feminine.

IMG_1183_final

Laneige Water Sleeping Pack Ex

I picked up this pack in Korea, but since then, Laneige products have become more widely available. This product, for example, can be found on the Target website!

IMG_0612_final

L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

This mascara made my lashes thicker without clumps, and made it look like I had more lashes. It also did not transfer under my eyes, which is my biggest complaint with most mascaras.

Hope you enjoyed this look back to my old favorites!

Empties for September and October 2015

Wow, I used up a lot of products in the past few months. I usually go for months and months without doing empties posts, but I just did one 2 months ago!

 

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for Oily/Combination Skin

This was the first liquid foundation I bought (obviously not the same bottle!) and I keep going back to it. It is sold in Japan with a pump, but the price is more than twice the price in the US!

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien (link goes to my review)

This was part of the birthday gift from Sephora. Although it was not a full sized product, it was enough to last for a long time! I wish all brands sold lipsticks in smaller amounts than they do today.

IMG_7086

 

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick in Blushed (link goes to my review)

I bought this in New York 1.5 years ago, and I can’t tell you how many times it has made it into my favorites since then. I loved this product so much! If you are interested in trying out a cream blush, this is the one I recommend, especially since the price is so affordable!

IMG_7088

 

Martha Tilaar Caring Colours Everlast BB Cream (link goes to my review)

This is a local Indonesian product that I bought when I lived there. Although it didn’t have heavy coverage, somehow it managed to make my skin look better. I really enjoyed using this product in the summer.

Nivea Sun Protect Water Gel SPF 50 PA+++

During the summer, I go through tons of sunscreen!

IMG_7070

 

Noevir Cleansing Crystals (link goes to my review)

This was a powdered facial cleanser that did a fairly good job of promoting cell turnover. However, this is quite a pricy product, and there are other facial cleansers that work well at a lower price.

IMG_7039

 

Kose Softymo blotting sheets

Not my favorite blotting sheets but they got the job done. I’m glad I am through with these!

IMG_7195

 

Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Energy Orange Ginger shower gel (link goes to my review)

This is probably my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works!

IMG_7036

 

Gatsby Ice Deodorant Body Papers (link goes to my review)

These are a must have for me in the summer. I even kept one package at home, one package at work, and had a travel pack to carry around in my bag!

IMG_7177

 

Rohto Z! eye drops

Who remembers when these were all the rage on the beauty community? These eye drops deliver MASSIVE menthol coolness, and are not for the light hearted!  Actually, Rohto has come out with an even stronger line recently!

Hope you enjoyed my empties!
