My 5 All Time Favourites For May 2010

I kept it at 5 because if I didn’t, I would probably come up with a list of, maybe 30. And no, I don’t count the number of times I use them but these are the 5 I find myself reaching out for the most this month.

Some are new items which I fell for immediately after getting them.

I bought Diorshow Extase Mascara because of its packaging and wand but I must say, the plumping effect impresses me. A lot. My lashes are not short, I think but they are very sparse and thin. A good volumizing mascara is crucial for me and this mascara did just that. It made my lashes seemed thicken and much denser.

Until I own NARS Orgasm, I know what all the raves is about. I think this is the one shade all girls should have. For more details about why I like it and swatches, click here >

My favourite pair of Shu Uemura Partial Soft Cross False Eyelashes. Totally gorgeous. One pair of false lashes, multiple ways of wearing them to deliver various different looks. Sometimes I add just one part of it on the outer corner of my eyes, sometimes I add 3 parts for a more dramatic effect. One pair does it all and I don’t even have to measure and size them.

Bright lips this season? Yes, with Chanel Rouge Allure in Genial. Very seldom you will see me with bright lips, Genial is probably one of the colours I dare to wear. The colour is not exactly hot pink, I would say wth a hint of coral which is why this shade is so wearable.

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation makes me feel so au naturale. It’s oil-free, long-wearing and light. Normally it lasts about 5-6 hours on me, if your skin is not as oily as mine, it can probably last longer.

What are your 5 all time favourites this month?

  1. Hi Joey, I am trying to post similar post and would like to know how you organise your main picture with all your favourite products. do you need a special softwear to do this?

    I love BB Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation, very natural in finish, and great colour match.

    You should try NARS orgasm illuminator.

    • I use either Photoshop CS or ImageReady CS but if you don’t have these programes, you can try using this awesome one online at polyvore. I think you will enjoy using it!!

      Can’t wait to see your faves this month!!

      I still have the small tube of NARS Orgasm Illuminator sample in my drawer. Kept forgetting!! Will try it out for my next look!!
