Throwback: Favorites from March

It’s the time of the month to revisit some old favorites!   Here is a look back at my favorites from 2014 and 2015!

In March 2015, I liked:

Barry M Dazzle Dust in Rose Gold
(picture from my Instagram)

I used up this eyeshadow a while ago!  I haven’t bought a new Barry M Dazzle Dust in a few years, and I hope they are still as good as I remember!

 

L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga mascara (link goes to my review)

While I initially liked this mascara, it ended up smudging under my eyes.  I really like that L’Oreal mascaras click shut, so if I recommend them if you can find a formula that works for you.

Putting foundation into little squeeze tubes for traveling

This is still the way I carry my foundation when I am traveling. I use bottles which are intended to put into bentos, which don’t leak and are 8 for $1!

 

In March 2014, I liked:

Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation (link goes to my review)

This was one of my favorite foundations for a very long time. However, Revlon foundations have gotten really expensive, and I can find better foundations at a department store.

 

Dejavu Lasting Fine R Pencil eyeliner (link goes to my review)

I haven’t repurchased this in a while, but it is a great long lasting pencil eyeliner.

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette

Between the Barry M pigment I liked in 2015, and the Naked 3 palette I liked in 2014, apparently I like rose gold in March!  I still own this palette and I use it regularly.

Wow, this month I am only using  2 of the 6 products I used to like!

Monthly Favorites #71: January, 2017

It’s cold. OK, so Kobe is not as cold as most places – but it’s cold enough that I am dreaming of warm tropical climates!  Here are my favorites for January.

 

Cheap makeup sponges

The Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge that I bought when I was last in the US have worn out, and it was time for me to buy a new one. Rather than test all of the Beauty Blender lookalikes in Japanese drugstores, I decided to go back to these cheap disposable sponges.  The pictures is the ones from Muji, but I’ve found that the ones from Daiso work just as well.  They do absorb a lot of foundation, though.

 

Muji Jojoba oil

It’s cold and dry in Kobe, which means I need to seriously moisturize my skin. I’ve been using the Muji Jojoba oil for the areas where I have sensitive skin, such as the inner side of my elbows and behind my knees.

 

Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle (link goes to my review)

This is a nice pink lipstick which brightens up my face without looking like I put in any effort!

 

Hope you enjoyed my favorites!

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: Favorites from December

I’m a little behind on my throwbacks again… but let’s take a look!  Here are my favorite products from December 2013 and 2014.

 

In December 2014, I liked:

Sally Hansen Salon Effects (link goes to my review)

I really, really loved these. This is the only way I could do my nails, since I just can’t handle waiting for my nails to dry.  I’ve been too busy to do my nails for the past year or so, but I still love these, especially with a gel topcoat.

 

Jordana Color Tint Brush Sticks (link goes to my review)

Ahhh I loved these! I wanted to pick up some more Jordana products when I was in the US this past spring, but they were no where to be found!  The only place I could find them was on Jordana’s website.

 

Baby oil

This is what I use to moisturize my body.  Recently, I have been using olive oil instead, since the fragrance in baby oil was irritating my skin.  Plus, olive oil is cheaper!

 

In December 2013, I liked:

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

See, I really loved these!

 

Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation (link goes to my review)

As I mentioned in a previous throwback, I no longer recommend this foundation. I loved it for a very long time, but it is simply too expensive for a drugstore foundation. I also don’t like the packaging, which is way to bulky!

 

Kiko Automatic Precision eyeliner in the color 712 (link goes to my review)

I had heard so much about Kiko, and I was so excited to go to a store when I was in Italy. The prices were very affordable, and I really enjoyed this brown eyeliner.

 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my past favorites!

Throwback: Favorites from November

It’s not Thursday, but here is a look back at my favorites from November 2013 and 2014.

 

In November 2014, I liked:

 

MAC Blush in Cantaloupe
I loved this blush! I’m not even sure where it is… I’ll need to dig it out.  I went to a lot of trouble to find this blush!!  This is a peachy pink without shimmer.

MAC  Studio Finish concealer in NW25

Amazingly, I used this up entirely.  It took a long time!  I like how full coverage this is.  I even use this under my eyes, blended with a beauty blender.

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (link goes to my review)

This is one of my most loved foundations, and pops up on my favorites regularly.  I was lucky enough to find a pump that fit it from Daiso.

 

In November 2013, I liked:

 

Although this was one of my favorite foundations for a long time, I don’t think I’ll ever repurchase this. The packaging is just too bulky!  Also, Revlon foundations are getting ridiculously expensive for a drugstore product.
Laneige firming sleeping pack(link goes to my review)
I never repurchased this because it is difficult to find in Japan. However, I’ve heard that it is now available at Target in the US! If you see it, I definitely recommend you pick it up.  Sleeping masks are a great easy way to pamper your skin while you sleep.  Amazingly, they don’t mess up your pillow!
Hope you enjoyed this look back at old favorites!
