No blabber, let’s get down to business!
1. I don’t feature an empty if I’ve featured it once before.
2. If a product has been reviewed, there will be link for you to read about it there.
These are the products I finished coming into 2021.
It’s My Brush makeup brushes purchased from Althea Malaysia. These brushes were CHEAP and when I was trying to look out for information to post a review, boom, they were gone from the Althea website. I have this weird habit of smelling my brushes when I wash them. Having recently washed them I naturally progressed to smell them. AND THEY STUNK! It smelled like a dog having not taken it’s bath for a couple of weeks. Which leads me to believe that these might have not been synthetic brushes. To add to the confusion, the brand doesn’t really have a website! Unless I am missing it, in which case, please leave me a comment with some information. I am afraid using it might cause more harm than good. So these are being left aside as props.
Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Got this in a beauty bag. I didn’t like how this sat on my skin and caught myself touching my face more whenever I used it. It would even just pill off. So this sat in the back of of the drawer for a long time. And when I wanted to finish it anyway the product started separating in the tube. Since it’s MURAD, a 50ml tube will set you back MYR338! So DEFINITELY NOT purchasing!
Gold CF-Nest White Bomb Eye Cream purchased from Althea Malaysia. This worked so well initially! I actually saw a difference. It was plumping, hydrating and reduced some bagginess. However, it started not working after a few weeks in addition to making my skin itch. So I stopped using it and has been sitting in my drawer awaiting this last hurrah! Only MYR 41 for a rather generous amount. Not repurchasing.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion purchased from Sephora Malaysia. I have myself to blame! I didn’t know how to use this and failed miserably not realising all that was needed was a little more effort blending for long lasting eyeshadow. And when I did learn how to use it, the seam broke and the product dried out!!! 😢 A whole tube is MYR105 (not too bad for something you need so little of and I doubt there’s a drugstore equivalent) and I would definitely repurchase when I decide to do makeup on the side in the future.
This I got from entering a competition that had so little participants they gave all of us a bag of makeup for participation! As you can see, the bristles are coming out and it is falling apart, so I’ve decided to retire this poor fella. Got a tonne of use from it! Not available for purchase anymore.
IN2IT Lip Treat lip balm purchased from either Guardian or Watsons (I forget). Thai based makeup brand. This balm is nice to use and cheap. Not the best I’ve used and definitely not the worst. MYR 8.50 and I’ve repurchased!
Very evidently ready to retire. I’ve reviewed this sponge (link here).
ATOPALM Real Barrier Essence Mist received as PR. I was sent this to review and I LOVED it! If you have combination skin and break out occasionally, this will calm your skin down and keep it hydrated! Prices vary online and I’d be very cautious buying it online. Would repurchase if locally available in stores and price is reasonable.
NYX HD Studio Photogenic Studio Concealer purchased from Sephora Malaysia. I scraped this tube to the bottom with a brush! Check out my review (link here).
