I’m pretty much a creature of habit and I never, ever go to bed with makeup on. My evening routine is like a three ring circus for removing my makeup and getting my skin ready for bed. I imagine they could make a reality tv show out of this regime, it’s serious shiz.
Moral of the story is I rarely, like never, go off this routine because I picture hell freezing over, skies falling, and the Red Sea parting if I did go off it.
I do have to brace myself for late nights now though as even though I promised myself I would not get involved with the latest Call of Duty release my good friend Angel who owns a gaming shop in Flushing sent me over a copy yesterday and things went down the hill fast. I could already feel hours of my life being chipped away…Angel should be shot down.
(P.S. Avoid the box edition and get the PS3 or XBOX version, way smoother play)
Last night we played for hours straight with brief Twitter updates and no food, drink, or pee breaks inbetween…by chance, did you hear on the news if the skies fell last night?
Needless to say this amount of gaming means you just wanna fall into bed after it without indulging in your normal makeup removal and nightly skin regime.
Bad, bad, bad…but at least I had a packet of Maybelline Expert Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Towelettes laying around!
Sigh it’s such sadness we don’t get nearly half the Biore Collection here in the US. The Eastern market features a range of not only skincare but even shower gels and soaps….
Damn shame we get around 7 or 8 products and that’s about it.
Biore Make-Up Remover Gel is one product you won’t find in drugstores here in the US but you might want to track it down if you have a larger Asian community in your city.
I’m switching my skincare cabinet around (yes, I haz cabinet for my skincare) so that all my exfoliaters play a prominent, Oscar Winning Role, front and center. Because it might feel like Summer in this city today (weather has been abnormally warm) but it gets cold in the evening and early morning which results in devastatingly dry skin.
I’ve been testing out the Balm Time Balm Kiwi Facial Scrub to see if it’ll make the cut as a keeper.
Let’s have a lookiee!
Happy Holidays nail girls!
Essie introduced their new Luxeffects for Holiday 2011 to make your nails all sparkly and festive.
These dazzling, multi-dimensional top coats give nails a brilliant, sparkling finish to your nails or wear them alone for a natural nail look with a bit of sparkle!
The genius behind Luxeffects is that it lays evenly over nail color and features 4 to 5 different sized flakes or pearl shapes which offers depth and dimension for a stunning effect.
- As Gold As It Gets (glided lame sparkles)
- Shine of the Times (scintillating opalescence)
- A Cut Above (shattered pink diamond glitz)
- Pure Pearlfection (decadent iridescence)
- Set in Stones (disco mirror ball chaos)
The Essie Luxeffects Collection will be available December 2011.
Scrub, scrub, scrub…
My skin needs a good scrub to ease the dullness, rid myself of dryness and flakes, plus I don’t want to worry about the scrub I use drying my skin out further because girl, you know these exfoliators are the work of the devil. I used to be a hardcore Philosophy Microdelivery fan but I swear it was making things worst instead of better.
Moral of the story, exfoliators are great but sometimes they make dry skin even drier.
I’ve been playing around with a few scrubs lately and at the moment Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is on my radar so let’s talk about it together?
