If You Could Live With Only 5 Makeup Items, What Would Your Choices Be?

If You Could Live With Only 5 Makeup Items

We all have a boxful or rather, a room-ful of makeup items, don’t we? All the new purchases from the Summer, Fall and the upcoming Christmas/Winter collections are making us spoilt for choices! With so many choices, what if, you could only pick 5 to live for the rest of your life from your makeup collection, what would you pick?

For me, I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes, especially from Urban Decay, so I cannot live without my eyeshadows! Hehe, so let’s dig into my 5 choices that I narrowed down! I honestly stared at my stuff, flipped open the drawers and all for so long before I decided on these.

Yes you have it, my holy grail foundation with defined brows, lots of colours to play with, naturally-flushed cheeks and moisturised lips with a healthy pink tint! These are my picks for a perfect face of makeup – no matter whether I’m stranded on the island with nothing else but these 5 items or not! 😀 Vain Roanna is vain!

August 2014 Beauty Favourites: Review

August 2014 Beauty Favourites

It’s the end of the month of August now and it’s time for August 2014 beauty favourites!

August has been packed with lots and lots of purchases from everywhere (Sephora, the recent Net-A-Porter free shipping etc..). Surprisingly, my favourites this month doesn’t include any of the new purchases because I really wanted to use the things I bought actively for exactly or more than a month to really test the efficacy of the products. Many a times we keep getting new things to play with that we don’t really reach out for a product more than 2-3 times, let alone give a full in-depth review. Thus, I am proud to say that I have been using my favourites so diligently this month that I don’t even realise I’m using them every day! 😀

Without further ado, let’s jump right into my skincare favourites followed by the makeup ones!

For skincare this month (or rather these 2 months), I have been loving my entire skincare range from Kiehl’s! Having acne-prone skin can be quite a headache as it is really not easy to tame the inflamed skin while trying to control acne formation. 3 products that have particularly improved my skin condition drastically are the Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and  Dermatologist Solutions Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment. Oh my what a mouthful. The names are way too long.

Look at the snake details of this palette, and the scaly packaging, isn’t it mysterious yet very tropical like? Seems rather fierce, I like! I especially like that purple gem in the middle of the snake’s head.
The palette is part of the Rainforest collection together with the limited edition gold eyelash curler with a snake charm on it, a gel eyeliner as well as their lip surgence.
