Products of the Week

Products of the week time!!

I apologize for being such a slack off blogger. Anyways I won't blab about my week so far because its been meh...not so good.

So, here are the products I've been reaching for for the past few days. I'm doing these "Products of the week" post because I really want to share with you what products I've been using so far AND this is a great way to hit pan beauty products that I have. Maybe I should do a post about products I've hit pan on. Should I?

Okay, picture time
Products of the week:
> E.L.F Saddle eyeshadow- This eyeshadow is perfect for the outer V and crease. It is a mid- tone brown with subtle silver and gold reflects.

> NARS Illuminator in Copacabana- If you are familiar with NARS' multiples, then this is no stranger for you. NARS illuminators an be use for highlight and mixed with foundation. I use this for highlighting my cheek bones. Very easy to blend(I use Coastal Scents' Bionic Flat Top Kabuki)

> MAC Shy Girl lipstick- My Third favorite lipstick from MAC (first is Angel, then Hue). Perfect neutral peachy coral. If you are afraid to wear nude lipsticks, then I suggest picking this one up because it does give you a hint of nude plus a hint of peachy coral lips.

> MAC Coygirl blush- I just bought this blush about 2 months I go I believe, and I'm really enjoying this. It has a mauvey vibe to it that is not too overpowering and it just gives your face a nice glow.

> Eco Tools shader brush- It is a medium size eyeshadow brush that lazy people like me enjoy.

So next up, I will show you a no make-up look then a photo of me wearing foundation and concealer only, lastly a photo of me wearing products I mentioned above.

ABOUT MY SKIN: I have dry sensitive skin, so I can't just go to the drugstore or Sephora and purchase any facial wash or moisturizer. I need to read reviews if the product works for people with dry and sensitive skin. When it comes to acne, blemishes, freckles, etc. I get acnes occasionally on my forehead and chin area and I do have few freckles on my cheek bones- not too noticeable though which is good.

Here's me with absolutely no makeup on only moisturizer- I use Cetaphil moisturizer for dry sensitive skin). Prepare yourselves!

Warning: I was wearing my pajamas already haha.
and.. Kim with only foundation and concealer on.
and.. the all dolled-up Kim, well not really. I wore this look everyday to school and work since Monday.

* My camera sucks and washes away my eyeshadow color. So if you're wondering I used MAC All That Glitters all over the lid, MAC Shroom inner corner, and ELF's Saddle outer V. I used my MAC Superslick Liquid Liner and Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara.
On my face I used
> Revlon Colorstay mixed with AC Face and Body foundation
> MAC Studio Finish concealer
> MAC Natural Skin Finish
> Benefit Hoola bronzer
> MAC Coygirl blush
> NARS Copacabana illuminator as highlight on my cheek bones.

MAC Hue lipstick and Revlon;s Peach Petal lipgloss.
I'm deciding between posting a tag post which is the 11 most reached products or products I've hit pan. Which one should I do first?
