New addition of makeup

One of my current resolution is to learn proper make up techniques and few weeks ago, I bought some new makeups to try and see if it works for me. This resolution is sparked by my interest of watching beauty videos from Youtube for the past few months.

I did my research online and it was very tempting to click "buy" or "add to cart" at every makeup items that I laid my eyes on. But in the end, I settled for the basic. The NYX Eyeshadow Palette, NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer and Physicians Formula Concealer RX are from meanwhile the rest are from local drugstore, Guardian.

I heard a lot of good review about this concealer that why I decided to get my hands on it. However, it is a bit disappointing tho. It is either I'm too noob or I applied it the wrong way, this concealer did not blend well and too dry which makes it hard to blend. A little amount of this goes a long way or else you will end up looking like a pale green monster.

I never own an eye shadow palette before and not very adventurous with my eye makeup, therefore Champagne & Caviar is my choice. It comes in a very natural and subtle color of earth which makes it suitable for everyday use. The quality of the shadow is okay for a drugstore level. It is not pigmented and matte. 

I wasn't planning on getting this concealer at first but the product that I wanted was sold out and the owner asked me to change. I picked the color fair for this concealer and it ended being too fair on me and require a lot of blending. Enough said, I still prefer my The Balm Time Balm Concealer.

A highlighting pen from Loreal, another concealer that I picked up from Guardian. I only use this to highlight my nose bridge and forehead. It doesn't work well to cover dark circle tho.

The rest of products that I got are Revlon 24 hours  ColorStay foundation (good coverage and really long lasting), Revlon Grow Luscious By Fabulous Mascara (smudge badly on me, maybe I should stick with Maybelline mascaras) and Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lipstain in the color of Rendezvous (which is orange color, the current popular color).

After all the experimenting, at least now I know what works for me. Do give me some tips or recommendation of product to try if you have any. :)

Happy mid April everyone!
