January Favorites

One thing about limiting yourself to buying makeup is to shop your stash. My New Year resolution is to set a budget monthly for my beauty purchase(skin care products excluded as they are essential :) and I got to re-discover a few of my past favorites.

 Soleil Tan de Chanel
Have this universal bronzer from Chanel for a while and it is one of my favorite bronzers. Shade is just perfect. I use it a lot and it doesn't seem to put a tiny dent on it. Even though it is pricey, I think it is going to last me forever.

Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
I got this from the Sephora birthday gift. Beautiful shade and so creamy.

L'oreal Color Riche in Jennifer's Nude
This nude lipstick has got to be one of my favorite nude lipsticks. Whenever I can't think of what to wear on my lips and want something naturally nude, this is the one I grab.

Tarte Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy
When I go for nude lipstick, I like to apply this on top. It gives my lips a natural boost as it is one of those lip product which would adjust to your own lip color.

Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara
Have been branching out to other mascara but this one is the one I always love. Gives my stubborn lashes the length and volume no other mascara can do.

Tarte Ambient Blush in Mood Exposure
I got so many new blushes last year that there are so many get overlooked. Mood Exposure is what I grab whenever I can't decide on which blush to wear. It goes with anything and even on days when I have minimal makeup, I just apply a little just to give my cheeks some color.

L'oreal Magic Lumi Primer
Favorite drugstore face primer. Gives your skin a natural, dewy but not oily look. 

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream
I have been using the Olay Regenerist cream for years and it is one of the best face moisturizers you could get for your buck from the drugstore. Lately, I have switched up to this luminous tone perfecting version and loving it. It is a bit lighter in texture than the regular one but still has the same moisturizing properties.


  1. yes! its nice to meet a fellow Olay Regenerist fan. ive been using it for many years. it works so well for me that its hard for me to try other brands / line but i might just check this out. i hope i get a sample of it :)

    1. the luminous version is a bit lighter in texture than the regular one but just as moisturizing. I "refuse" to try other brands as well as this is so nice and I always try to grab a few when they are on sale.
