Updated Make Up Collection Part 1

Standard

Hi All!

 

It feels so good to be back. It’s the eve of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, and im all alone. My family decided to head to bed early and my boyfriend’s at his uncle’s, so instead of lying on the bed and staring at the ceiling, might as well do a blog post.

So tonight, i feel like doing an updated make up collection. Id add some storage tips if i can remember to talk about them. Please remember that i am not bragging in anyway, i enjoy collecting make up. Most of them are from my own money, and if not, they’re all gifts from family and friends.
Lets get on to pictures!

This is how my make up set up look like, same ol’ same ol’.

20120819-223625.jpg

This is the pink cupboard that i showed in my past post. I may have changed some stuff abit.

20120819-223636.jpg

On the top of the cupboard, i got a vintage tray thing that i place all my perfumes.

20120819-223644.jpg

Under the perfumes, ive got 2 separate clear containers where i put all my lotions, body butters, Vaseline, body mist and make up cleansers.

20120819-223655.jpg

On the next cupboard, on top, that’s where i place all my clean brushes, two antique containers to put my most used earrings and watch.

20120819-223703.jpg

Under the brushes, theres two more clear containers where i have all my big coastal scents, NYX and manly palette inside. The other container contains all my bb creams, foundations and primers.

20120819-223711.jpg

Here’s an overview of whats on my make up vanity.

20120819-223718.jpg

These are two pen holders that i spray painted pink and glued huge flowers on to make them look nicer. Inside one of them, i have all my eyeliners from various brands and milk jumbo pencils. In the other, i have all mu Urban Decay primer potions in different shades and Too Faced Glitter Glue.

20120819-223725.jpg

Here i have my most used brushes.Most of them are from Sigma and MAC

20120819-223736.jpg

Next, here is where i have all my new palettes that i need to try/use. I just place them in letter holders. They fit there perfectly. Oh and at the back is my trusty ol mirror that i adore.

20120819-223748.jpg

Here’s the palettes that I need to try out. Just incase you cant see them in the previous photo.

20120819-223806.jpg

On the top shelf is where i have perfume sets that i got as gifts, boxes of hairbands and things like that. The shelf at the bottom is where I have all my lip stuff. All from lipsticks to lip balms to lip glosses!

20120819-223815.jpg

In this acrylic lipstick holder, i have all my NYX round lipsticks, a mirror from Holika Holika and burts bees lipbalms in a tin can.

20120819-223824.jpg

Next, in this picture, ive got two sizes of acrylic lipstick holders, the tall one at the back holds all my MAC lipsticks and the three smaller ones in front are all my other lipsticks from various brands.

20120819-223831.jpg

And here is where i have all my lip glosses. The two smaller glasses are actually candle holders that im already done with so that’s a nice tip if you want something fancy yet budget-able.

So that’s all for part 1, I’ll be back with part 2.

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 2

Standard

Hello!

This is the continuation for my make up collection post. I had to split it into two or else it would be a very loooooooong post. Now, let us move on.

Next to my vainity table (as you can see in my first picture in part 1), I have two shelves thats drilled to the wall. The one right next to the vainity is where I put all of my lip products and also my eye shadow palettes.


I store my lipsticks in these acrylic lipstick holders that I got for an affordable price. They had different sizes and different number of lipstick slots. In the pictures below, I will be showing you how they vary from each other.

This holds 24 lipsticks and it comes with a clear container that you can stack on eachother. I put all my lipbalms, lipglosses that are too short to be seen in my lipgloss holder, Anna Sui’s ring rouge in the container.

This is actually a candle holder. So when I was done with the candle, I cleaned the glass and used it to store all of my MAC’s lipglasses and plushglasses. They fit perfectly and it’s really nice that you can see through it to see the colors.

I dont know how to describe this buti it’s sorta like a moon shape. This holds 15 lipsticks.

As you can see, behind there’s a few slots where you can put extra lipsticks or skinny lipsticks that dont fit in the slot. Ive got my Anna Sui’s lip palette, my Holika Holika rose mirror, chapsticks and sample sized lipsticks.

Now this little thing holds 12 lipsticks. Ive got two of these just cause I wasnt sure if i needed anymore at that time, but in the end, i did need another one.

This is where I store my lipglosses. This container is actually a tv remote control holder/pen holder. I also stick the pink w brown polka ribbon around the container just so it does not look dull.

These are the palettes I have. I just place them upright next to the wall and the lipgloss container.

My vainity table has a slide mirror, and behind there are shelves where I can store my body mists, moisturizers and lotions and things like that so I really think thats cool.


In the cabinet, I just put all my make up bags and brush rolls inside. And at the top shelf, I have one of those acrylic containers but in a bigger size so that I can put all my tissue roll, nail polish remover, cuticle removers, extra brush cleanser and everything.

White container has my sample size of everything from different companies. The Coca Cola glass was a freebie from Mcds and I put my hair brushes inside. Now that thing on the right is a brochure holder that I got from a stationery store. It holds my face masks, and hair stuff perfectly.

So, that is it ladies! I hope this was helpful. I’m sorry I cant describe this better just cause, I feel, that most of these things shown are all straight forward. But if you have questions, feel free to comment down below. Thank you for reading! Talk to you all again soon!

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 1

Standard

Hello dear readers!

Finallyyy!! I’ll be doing my make up collection post plus I’ll be giving you some make up storage tips. So lets just get on with it.

Just a disclaimer, I am not trying to brag about how much make up I have, I don’t think I have that many compared to the youtube gurus and bloggers I’ve seen, I’m simply doing this post just cause I love sharing new ideas on how I store my make up. And I know some readers that have reached out to me asked for a post like this, so to you girlies, who’ve asked, this is especially for you 🙂

The overview of my make up station

I store my brushes in clear glass vases. The beads inside the vases at the back are flower beads.

In this plastic container (where I used to store my earrings) I could fit my foundations, BB creams, face primers, brush cleansers and towel in. I just wrapped a pink ribbon with brown polka dots around the clear container to make it more interesting. (My cousin got me a pair of PJs when she got back from UK and it came with the ribbon so I kept it and reused it)

Top view

I will start with my pink counter. Here is where I mainly keep my make up. I bought this pink rack and the white clear plastic drawers separately. I was lucky that the drawers fit perfectly in the rack. Of course I need a lot of anti slip mats to be placed under the drawers so that it does not move when I pull the drawers out.

First rack on the right, it has two small drawers at the top and one long drawer at the bottom.

First drawer on the left is where I store all my face stuff; face powders, liquid highlighters, setting powder, powder foundation, bronzer and two kabuki brushes

In the second drawer on the right is where I place all my concealers and color correctors

In the drawer below, I have 4 little containers as you can see in the picture above. Now I got these little containers from Economy Mart; 3 for $1? I have my lipliners, eyelash curlers, mascaras and…

On the other two, I place my sharpeners, eye primers, paintpots, gel liners and liquid liners.

In the second rack I have..

In the top drawer, I have all my blushes. I also have two long containers where I store a my MAC, Nyx, Anna Sui and Benefit’s Box O’ Powders. Now that little container on the right I also got that from the Economy Mart, same price as Ive mentioned above. There I store all my random blushes. And in the little space I have Ive stored some of my high end blushes. Ive placed an anti slip mat underneath just so my things wont move around.

Here I have all my small palettes and in the small container on the right, I have all my fake lashes with lash adhesive.

The last rack on my right..

Now this, I wont show you each and every drawer just cause its not that interesting. But i’ll tell you what I have in each and every one of them.

1st drawer: All my cotton pads & hair bands to put my hair back doing my make up.

2nd drawer: Long container where I store all my eyeshadow singles and duos.

3rd drawer: All my plastic jars and sprays incase I need them for whatever reason.

4th drawer: All my Vaporubs and other medical creams.

Next rack on my left,

This rack is where I place all my earring. I have a post on how I store my earrings recently so check that out!

In the second rack I have all my perfumes..

And the last rack below, I store all my nail stuff.

An overview of all the nailpolishes that I have.

So that is all for my part 1 and stay tuned if you wanna see part 2!!

Collective Haul: CHANEL, DIOR, ESTEE LAUDER, LOREAL, THE BODY SHOP, HOLIKA HOLIKA

Standard

Hi girls!

Today i will be showing you my collective haul. These are the things that ive collected over the last two weeks and ive been saving these just to show you what they look like in their boxes and stuff. Okay, so this is an overview of everything that i got.

Ive got things from very high end brands to some low ends. Oh and just a disclaimer, i got ALL of this stuff with my own money. Okay?

Now, the first thing that i would like to show you is from The Body Shop. And it’s the CAMOMILE WATERPROOF EYE MAKE UP REMOVER. It says here that its gentle, effective cleansing lotion with soothing camomile. And this is for all skin types. Usually ill just use baby’s oil to remove my make up, but then again, i would like to try this out and see if it is really gentle and effective; also if it does remove waterproof make up.


Next, is the LOREAL’S CURL-FIXING VOLUME MASCARA – CURL IMPACT COLLAGENE, ive tried this a couple of times and this does not work for me. How i really want to love this. It is quite expensive for a drugstore make up though. It says here that it will give volume and holds up your curl and it DOES NOT do what it says! So yes, i am very dissapointed with this product. I do not recommend this. Sorry Loreal!

This is how the wand looks like. It looks promising at first but nyeh!

Now, for the high end products.

Here’s what i got from the DIOR Counter. I really like Dior lipsticks and lipglosses. Just cause they are very good quality make up. I have tried DIOR lipsticks and lipglosses before and i really like their texture. They do last long on my lips.

20110722-024019.jpg

L To R: Dior Addict Ultra – Gloss Flash in 557 EMPIRE PINK, Dior Addict Lipstick in 578 DIORKISS & Rouge Dior in 351 ELEGANT PINK

Swatches of (L to R): Dior Addict Ultra – Gloss Flash in 557 EMPIRE PINK, Dior Addict Lipstick in 578 DIORKISS & Rouge Dior in 351 ELEGANT PINK

The things i got from the Chanel counter. I didnt get many things just cause they were pricey. I only managed to get two wonderful items. They are the ROUGE COCO SHINE HYDRATING SHEER LIPSTICK IN 50 RIVAGE & JOUES CONTRASTE POWDER BLUSH IN 99 ROSE PETALE.  This is my very first Chanel purchase and i am very happy with them! Definitely definitely will buy more when i have the chance!

20110722-024106.jpg

Just look at the packaging! Giving 10 stars for the beautiful, sophisticated packaing!!!

20110722-024118.jpg

The blush came with a little pouch. Isnt that super cool???!

20110722-024141.jpg

I know this is not a good swatch. Im so sorry. I didnt know what happened. From L to R: ROUGE COCO SHINE HYDRATING SHEER LIPSTICK IN 50 RIVAGE & JOUES CONTRASTE POWDER BLUSH IN 99 ROSE PETALE

From Estee Lauder i only got their Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick in VENETIAN ROSE. The eye shadow duo that you see on the left is a freebie that i got for buying a couple of other Estee Lauder items for my mommy.

20110722-024202.jpg

This is what they look like upclose 🙂

Swatches- From L to R : ESTEE LAUDER SIGNATURE HYDRA LUSTRE LIPSTICK IN VENETIAN ROSE, EYESHADOWS IN 60 SUGAR BISCUIT (SATIN) & 33 IVY ENVY (SATIN)

That was all for my high end make up haul. Next is..

The Holika Holika’s AQUA MUSE WATERY GLOSS. Theyve got a couple of different shades from pinks to corals and to reds. But i find this very unique. And i dont have anything thats like this before. What it is its just a clear lipgloss. It can add shine to whatever lipstick that you choose to wear 🙂 Cool huh?

20110722-024423.jpg

This is in the number 401

20110722-024435.jpg
