So I went down to Walgreen, which is only a ten minutes walk away from my college. The second I saw the makeup selection, I just told the friend I was with to leave me with the items in peace. I finally managed to get hold of brands like Milani and Jordona, which I can’t get in Singapore, and purchased some Revlon products which I can’t get in Singapore, or I wouldn’t ordinarily buy but they’re cheaper here so I had to.
Milani Liquid Eye in Graphite. This is a pencil product that’s supposed to imitate the look of liquid eye products.
It’s slick and glossy, just like a liquid pencil.
Milani Baked Blush in Fantastico Mauve
Comes with a brush (left) and mirror (right). The pink thing there is the reflection of my iPhone as I take a photo of the compact.
Swatch of Fantastico Mauve. It’s a beautiful plummy colour.
Jordona Lip Pencils in Tawny and Sedona Red. These were only $2 each, and according to http://estycare.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/jordana-easyliner-review-swatches-2/’s reviews, are absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to try them.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee
It’s a nude that barely shows up on my lips, but is good for those days when I just want to even out my lip colour, and have some moisturizer as well. (Lips have been cracking since entering the US despite my continual moisturizing. I think I just need to get used to the drier weather.)
Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation in Warm Beige. Bought it at least three shades two dark for my skin. Because of the packaging they all look the same in the jar, and they don’t have free samples to test out on.
I gave this to one of my suitemates; this is not a foundation you would want to wear in Singapore’s hot and humid weather. This is not sold in Singapore, and for good reason, no one would buy it. However, I thought that it would be a decent foundation for stage as it has medium coverage that can be built up.
