T H U R S// Beauty Buys #1

#haul #beauty #makeup

Hello my dears, it's Thursday. My last day of the spring semester. I can now breathe a sigh of relief! Its been a trying school year. Somehow all the turmoil feels worth it when  summer arrives and the sun kisses your tired skin. 

In my last post I mentioned I was really liking a mini sample of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation. I decided to bite the bullet and grab it. I do require a bit more coverage than this base provides but it's nothing a good concealer can't fix. I will probably write up a full post on it soon but the consensus is that I really enjoy it.

My other beauty buy recently is a creamy lip stain from the Sephora brand. In the shade -- Always Red. I was turned onto this because of lovely blogger, Amelia Liana of

read her review in her lip product addict tag FT. Essiebutton X

When I saw her wear this I thought it was really pretty. She then added that this product had really, REALLY great staying power. Claiming that she could eat a burger and the lipstick would still be perfectly intact. 
By then I was sold because red lipstick is so difficult to keep on the lips. After giving it a test run I would agree with Amelia's assessment. It stayed on my lips for the larger portion of the day and lasted through a meal of homemade stir-fry! (yum!)
This shade of red is bright and on the warmer side which makes it great for summer. The other plus about this product is that its really affordable! at $13

This week is looking pretty great so far. I have some other products from The Body Shop that I picked up and need to be reviewed. Is there anything that you guys want me to talk about? or a product you think I would like? I would love some feedback! 

I hope you are all doing well! I will see you soon. Catch up with me on Twitter or Instagram!

  1. I've also been quite interested in the lip stain after hearing from Amelia Liana! Too bad that we don't have Sephora in Hong Kong anymore. :/


    1. Oh no! I am sorry to hear that! Lillian! we should do a beauty swap! I can send you the lip cream in the color of your choice and you can send me a beauty product from Hong Kong that you love? maybe! We could be blogging friends <3
