What I'm Wearing #4 Winter Glowy Skin

I started this series earlier this year but stopped after I left residence and had too much makeup to play with back home. I'm bringing it back though because I'm trying to finish up some more makeup items before I pack everything and return to Vancouver.

The theme for this month is glowy skin!

Face Products

1) Lioele Water Drops BB Cream: This gives a really nice sheer coverage and feels refreshing on the skin.

2) ELF Baked Blush in Rich Rose: I apply this in the hollow of my cheeks to double as a contour and a blush

3) MAC Extra Dimensions Skin Finishing Powder in Whisper of Gilt: I put this on my cheeks and slightly higher as a higher.

This is what layering the highlighter over the blush looks like. 

Eye Products

4) Shisedo Fine Eyeliner: For my upper lashline, I can make a nice precise wing

5) Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara: Nice natural everyday mascara that doesn't feel crunchy

6) Urban Decay Primer Potion: Put this over my lid before putting on eyeshadow which I switch up

7) Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero: Use this on my lower lashline and waterline

8) Bombay Browbar Brow Powder: Use this with a brush to fill in my brows

Lip Products

9) Burt's Bees Tinted Lipbalm in Red Dahlia: Keeping it simple with a dark berry lip balm

10) Etude House Shini Star Lip Balm: One of my new purchases, this smells so yummy! Not much color though

Here's the finished look! Nicely sculpted and shiny cheeks! The Lioele BB cream also offers a nice finish for a flawless finish. Hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to bring back this series for 2014!

Empties: Last of 2013

Happy December Everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates! I just went on a 10 day trip to Guangzhou and then to Thailand! My parents flew over from Canada to Asia and we are travelling together. But here's presenting the rest of my empties! This will most likely be my last empties post for 2013 and it includes 5 makeup items yay!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer :/ Review
Hate the silicone feel, but the finish is really smooth and nice.

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer :) Review
This primer has a strong pigmentation but I really like it because it evens out my lid color.

Stila Lip Glaze in Jack Frost :)
A very glittery lip gloss. Really neutral for every day but gives lips a huge oommphhh! I totally thought I did a swatch of this lip glaze already but I haven't! :(

Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara :) Review
Nice and black, held a curl, lengthened lashes, didn't smudge. Overall a great mascara at a drugstore price.

ELF Lip Pencil in Pink Umbrellas :(
This was a horrible product! I'm actually throwing this away. It made my lips look so chapped even when it wasn't. Unnatural color too. Can't be bothered to keep using this up. A full review coming soon.

Skinlite Make-up Cleansing Tissues- Green Tea :/
Got these at IMATS, they were okay nothing special but I loved the scent!

Bello Peach Facial Cleansing Wipes  :/
Got these at Watsons, not a huge fan of the scene but got my makeup off well.

Watson's Invigorating Wet Tissues x2- Green Tea :)
I love green tea if you can't tell. I really liked how handy they were to clean up a mess or just wipe my hands after swatching.

Watson's Scented Tissues x4 :)
Really enjoy the floral scent that comes with these tissues. Essential in Asia!

Exact Multipurpose Solution :/
Didn't like that I had to rub it. But when I did, it cleaned my lenses fine

Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste :(
Didn't think it was possible to have an opinion on toothpaste but I hate this. Kind of taste like bubble gum, feels gritty after I rinse and my mouth doesn't taste fresh.

Mopidick :)
This is legitmately a LIFESAVER! This is for mosquito bites and it reduces the itch right away!

Dettol Anti-Bacterial Bodywash :)
Didn't think it was possible to have an opinion on bodywash either but I really like this. This is supposedly suppose to protect you from bacterial!

Etude House Pearl Extract Face Mask :/
Felt pretty good but didn't feel any difference.

Laneige Blackhead Pore Strip :/
Felt tight on the nose and feels like it would pull out impurities but didn't really see a difference

Walker Sugar Free Mints :):)
This is so random but these are the TASTIEST mints I've ever had. The flavor is so delicious. Pick it up if you see it in your super market. Might only be in HK though.

Link me to your empties! I'd love to read them :) Sidenote, I only have 15 days left on this exchange! Time has really flown by!
