New Years Haul~


 So, after a long hiatus and a fun and fatty holiday I'm back with a quick haul entry~

First item I came home with is Fairy Drops Scandal Queen mascara~ So far I really love it and it's pretty amazing stuff, water proof, lengthening fibers and hold a curl on my Asian lashes.



 [I'll do a more intensive review on it later this month]
 Next item is Urban Decay's 24/7 concealer... Uhm, Which after some trial, I'm not a fan of...
I have acne scars and break outs and I think it would be better on someone with a bit clearer skin.
I personally need something a bit heavier and less sheer.


 I also got another shade of UD mineral foundation in 'Illusion' [I got much paler this winter]
 I really love this foundation it looks so flawless and has great coverage and the best tone match for my skin which is very yellow based.

 I decided that I wanted to try UD's brushes while I was at it.
I invested in the Multi task brush, which I want to use for concealer.

Then I also bought the foundation brush that I am using with my Urban Decay Flawless foundation.
And I think it does a fine job with it BUT I by far prefer using it to apply the mineral powder foundation after playing with it today.
So, this is the effect on my skin using all of the products. [I had to use my Clinique concealer in place of the UD one for a better coverage]

I'm happy with the effect. It looks very flawless and natural.
I also went to Forever 21 where I bought a cute floral sweater and simple pleated skirt.
THEN, I took a trip to Lush to invest in some bubble bombs and bath bombs and bubbly stuffs....



I actually don't know the names of the bombs or bubbly stuff but it's all really pretty and smells nice...

Yepp~
This year I want to become better at updating and posting good content.
Yeah.

Thank you for sticking with me and watching me grow this year~~~
