嘩, 講左好耐話要整下makeup tutorial video, 但係整呢d video既時間比較長, 所以成日都未有時間整. 我前一兩個星期有少少時間, 整左個makeup step-by-step video. 老實講, 我唔覺得好滿意, 我見到有好多可以improve既位置. 要一路整先會一路有進步. 我先post呢個出黎, 等你地睇下我平時用d咩產品化妝啦. 哈哈…我已經諗到下一個look整咩, 不過要等有sunlight先整得….(如果唔洗返工你話幾好丫….(發夢中)…)
(English: Wow, it’s been awhile since I mentioned about shooting a makeup tutorial video. Making this kind of videos takes longer time, therefore, I kept putting it off. Not until a couple weeks ago, I had some spare time to make a “trial” – makeup step-by-step video. Honestly, I don’t think it’s a great make, I see there are quite a few areas for improvement! Well, but we all have to start somewhere, learn and get better along the way, right? Let me share this video with you all and you’d be able to know what sort of products I usually use for my makeup look. *laughs* I came up with an idea for my next makeup video, however, I have to wait for the natural sunlight to come into my place before I could start shooting…*wishing I don’t have to work – dreaming*.)
嘻嘻, 之前去左Smashbox敗左家, 當然又係試色時候啦! 話時話, 我今次敗個d野我超級滿意, 因為d色好earth tone, 真係好多時候都用得著, 同埋quality真係正 (等我遲d逐樣share下啦). 而家睇下試色效果先:
(English: *Smiles* As you can see in the previous video that I went to Smashbox to haul some stuff! It’s swatching time again! To be honest, I am completely happy with the Smashbox haul, the colors that I picked were more on the earth tone side and they do suit a lot of looks, not to mention the quality is great (I will share my comments on each of them later!). Swatch time:)
Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights (Color: Dusk)
(English: Let’s see the effect when all the colors are mixed together.)
Smashbox Eye Shadow (Color: 24K)
Smashbox Highlights/ Creamy Cheek Color (Color: Naked Beauty)
Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick
無買錯, 近期係咁試呢幾隻野, 真係好正. 我尤其鍾意Fusion Lights! d色超natural, 分開做eyeshadow又靚, 或者用黎做bronzer又正. 如果再有staff sale就好喇, 一定會再去敗敗敗!!
(English: I’m in love with all the items that I have! I have been trying all the abovementioned products these days and I exceptionally love Fusion Lights! The colors are super natural; they can be used separately as eyeshadows or mixed together as a bronzer! Amazingly good! If I could sneak into the staff sale again, I definitely would haul again!!)
正正正!! 我之前有friend比左個Smashbox Staff Sale Pass我. 仲要我同個個friend唔係好熟, 佢話佢拎到個pass個陣諗起我 (因為我化妝), 所以比我!! 真係多謝sa佢, 唔係都買唔到d又平又正既野喇. 睇下我敗左d咩抵野丫:
(English: Fabulous!! I was given a Smashbox Staff Sale Pass by a friend and the amazing thing was I wasn’t even that close to that friend. He said when he received the pass, he thought it would be useful for me (coz I wear makeup!), so he gave that to me. I really had to thank him here, otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to haul some cheap and great stuff. Let’s take a look at what I have got:)
上次係Facebook影左張相同大家講話我無啦啦興起去左Jill Stuart敗家. 我都唔知我做咩人地黎左香港咁耐我先有興趣去買, 可能係我之前係台灣買過佢地隻四色eyeshadow palette 覺得d粉質有少少粗, 所以之後無左興趣. 不過我近期對佢地個Jelly Eye Color有d心動,所以再比多次second chance佢啦. 睇下我買左d咩丫:
拍拍下個video camera 無電…等左兩個鐘再黎過 (頭髮都亂鬼埋). 希望你地鍾意睇啦.

(English: I haven’t got time to test them out on my face yet, I will definitely share my comments after trying them out! But so far, all I can say is it worths to buy taking into consideration that the eyeshadows are full size and there are a lot of items in this Jewelry Box.)
聖誕前我叫我係美國個friend幫我係Sephora敗家, 有咩要非麻煩佢不可? 就係呢盒野喇:

(English: My friend gave me Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation SPF 15 as my X’mas present earlier ! I have been using it for two weeks and let’s see what I think about this foundationembedded by Embedded Video
雖然我未搬完, 但係我就已經搬左d比較重要既化妝品返屋企. 不如而家望下我有d咩丫. 你地應該會覺得熟口熟面, 因為全部都係呢期講過下既.
(English: Even though I haven’t finished moving yet, I already brought some more important cosmetics home. Let’s see what I have . I think you will be familiar with most of my collection since I mentioned quite a few of them before in my blog posts.)embedded by Embedded Video
(English: Last September, I hauled some Laura Mercier foundation back home (refresh memory), one of those became my favourite (refresh memory), but for the other one, its fate wasn’t the same. At first when I started using it, I thought it was nice, however, after a few days of trial, I discovered some main defects. After that, I use it spontaneously… well, it’s been a few months now and let me share my comments with you:
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15
My color – Real Sand
價錢 (Price): HK$330/ 9.6g
“Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15 is a finely milled powder composed completely of natural elements with 15 active amino acids to clear the skin of toxins, promote healthy skin cell growth and fight the aging process.”
(English: I usually use E.L.F. Kabuki Brush to apply this foundation.
On the brush:
使用次數 (No. of Usage): around 30 times
用 後感: 我之前用過Bare Ecentuals, 都係比較出名既礦物粉底. 但係香港無得買, 上網買又好難揀色, 所以唯有買香港買得到既礦物粉底啦. 呢隻野我見都好多人讚好, 所以我就買黎試下. 初初用覺得佢上面都算薄 (但係我記得Bare Ecentuals仲薄) 同好貼. 搽左佢之後會覺得皮膚好有光澤. 佢既遮暇力都唔錯, 遮到鼻位d紅, 同埋黑眼圈都遮到70%. 本身都覺得唔錯ga. 點知, 用用下我發現我用左呢隻foundation之後下午會出多左油, 同埋個foundation到3pm會變暗. 我諗可能因為當時天氣好熱, 所以會有d咁既情況, 所以我停左用佢. 呢期比較冬同埋乾, 我再拎出黎用, 我覺得變暗既情況無咁犀利, 但係都有. 之前佢會變暗兩度色 (好恐怖), 而家就變暗一度到啦. 出油既情況就無之前咁勁 (而家我乾到用咩都唔會出油). 咁我無理由浪費左jar野, 所以而家係返mama屋企食飯就用下佢 (去mama屋企我唔會full makeup, 多數都淨係用下粉底). 希望快d用完佢就算. 可惜丫, 其實我幾鍾意佢上面個effect, 但係會變暗我就真係接受唔到喇. 如果你地要買, 真係係counter試完行成日先再決定佢適唔適合你呀!
(English: After-use Comment: I used Bare Ecentuals a couple years back and it was one of the most famous mineral brand. But I couldn’t get it in Hong Kong and it would be hard for me to pick the right colors online, therefore, I decided to try something local. I read quite a few rave comments about this mineral powder from Laura Mercier and decided to give it a go. At first, I felt the foundation was light on skin (but Bare Ecentuals’ are even lighter) and it stayed close to skin. After applying this foundation, I found my skin more radiant. Also, its coverage was quite nice, it covered the red areas of my nose really well and for dark eye circles, I thought it covered up to 70% of them. So far so good right? Nah!!!!! After a few days of compliment on this product, I started noticing my skin secreted way more oil in the afternoon and the foundation oxidized (turns to a dark shade) at around 3pm. Well, then I blamed on the weather (it was hot and humid at that time), so I stopped using it for a few months. Now, since the weather is cold and dry, I took it out again and gave it a second chance. The way it oxidized becomes less serious. It turned two shades darker during the summer time (horrible!!), and now it turns one shade dark. And my skin doesn’t secrete any oil in the afternoon (well….this is due to the fact that my skin is so dry now, nothing can create oil on my skin). In order not to waste this item, I use it whenever I go back to mom’s place for dinner (usually I won’t have full makeup, I just have the foundation on and that’s it). I hope to finish this thing real soon!! What a pity! I indeed love how it looks on my skin, but I cannot accept foundations that oxidize! So, if you want to get this, make sure you try it on your face at the counter, and walk around for the whole day before making your decision!)
