TAG - 40 Beauty Questions
-How many times do you wash your face daily?
One in the morning, trying to use a gentle cleanser because it can be drying in Winter. now I'm trying to finish my L'occitane Ultra Rich Foaming Cleanser. it's so gentle and i love the smell of the creamy shea butter. but the texture is super runny that it get so messy right after i open the container...duh!
At Night, I'll start with my Shu Uemura's cleansing oil for the oily skin *the cute pink one* then, continue with scrub. Some of the scrub are...Estee Lauder's Sparkling Clean...L'oreal Skin Genesis *got it on sale...lol* yah, i just like to try different stuff. Sometimes I even use hubby's facewash...just because i'm bored with my own ;p
-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I have combination sensitive skin.
combination here is not like oily on the T-zone only...but also at the cheeks area. so the only dry parts are the edges of my face. and it's also sensitive, i got redness around my nose and chin area. Especially now that I'm pregnant.
-What is your current facial wash?
on my sink: L'occitane Ultra Rich Foaming Cleanser, Biore Warming Anti Bleackhead Cream Cleanser (not the easiest to use!)
inside my shower: Estee Lauder's Sparkling Clean, L'oreal Skin Genesis, Skin Food Honey Black Sugar Scrub...i think that's the name, the label peel off already...haha
-Do you exfoliate?
-What brand do you use?
i mention all of them already ;p
-What moisturizer do you use?
I'll start with Estee Lauder Advace Night Repair Serum, then slather one of this: Laneige Star White series, Bliss The Youth As We Know It (love the smell!!) or Cetaphil.
-Do you have freckles?
I start having some on my cheekbones...and my pregnancy made it looks more prominent. I also have it all over my arms, it doesn't bother me at all.
-Do you use eye cream?
off course! i have two of them, one is located on top of my sink...Strivectin. and the other is Hylexin. Both are quite pricey eye cream, but I pay nothing for them, I redeemed them with my Sephora beauty point. came with great size! like almost original size...oh, how i LOVE Sephora!!! x3
-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
o yeah...during my teenage year, my skin was horrible. small acne all over my face, but i rarely got a big one. And during my early pregnancy, the 1st trimester, it came back to me...oh so scary! but now it's all gone. But sometimes i still got some occasional small acne.
I use Kate Somerville's Eradicate to banish them. usually gone in 1 or 2 days
-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I tried my friend's...oh so drying!!!
-What foundation do you use?
YSL Teint Resist #02 Blond ---> great match to my skin
MUFE HD Foundation #110 ---> a little bit pink
BE Foundation in Fair ---> never failed me
and I also have compact foundations for on the go.
-How about concealer?
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Light
MAC Select Cover Up NC20
MUFE Camouflage Cream Palette #1
-Do you know your undertone color?
pinkish...like those little piglets...oink!! however, my body's skin is more yellowish than my face.
-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
love it! love it! love it! check out my various falsie review here ;)
-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
-What brand of mascara do you use?
Mostly drug store brand, I don't splurge on high-end brand mascara anymore (used to love Helena Rubinstein mascaras!)...doesnt do much on my short lashes.
my fav are...
L'oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara...imho it's better than Dejavu Fiberwig
Cover Girl Lash Blash...much better than its rival, Maybelline Collosal
Rimmel Sexy Curves
I also have some Dior & Estee Lauder mascaras...the free sample...haha ;p

Sephora all the way!! I love the huge selection, love the beauty point! the generous bonus, the birthday gift for member...everything that MAC don't offer!
