But I wanted to show two products I've been using quite often now that are awesome!
First off is Benefit's Fake Up Concealer in (01) Light, which I have read some mixed reviews about, but I'm completely head over heels! It sports a lipstick twist-up tube with a hydrating ring and a concealing core. The outer ring is ultra-hydrating ready with vitamin e and apple seed extract. I used to switch between Amazing Cosmetics concealer and the Makeup Forever concealer palette, but I think I've just found my favorite concealer! I've heard that it slides around and doesn't stay put, but luckily for me, it works extremely well with my skin. I have an oily t-zone but my cheeks and under eye area are extremely dry. I was about out of concealer and wanted to try a new one and really liked the concept of a hydrating concealer because I suffer from dryness under my eyes that turn into wrinkles after a long day out.
- Easy to blend
- Long lasting
- May be pricy to some
- May not suit oily skin tones
- Only comes in 3 shades
It can be here purchased at Sephora for $24.
Next is two lipsticks I'm sure many have either seen or heard of before. The award-winning Rouge Volupte Lipsticks from Yves Saint Laurent. The first time I saw these I feel in love with the glamorous packaging and was pleased to know that the quality matched up to it's hefty price tag. My go-to colors for lip are always peachy or coral colors so I have 13 Peach Passion and 26 Tender Peach. Peach passion (13) is a bright peachy pink while Tender Peach (26) is a muted peach color. The are very opaque and come in a wide variety on colors and definitely long lasting. Even with it's high pigmentation, they have a glossy sheen, so pigmented they can cover any flaws on your lips.
- Large variety of colors
- Opaque, true to color in tube
- Absolutely amazing packaging
- Very pricey
- Colors often sold out depending on location
You can buy them here at Sephora for $34.

I would also like to thank the lovely ladies over at Pursiko. (mDawn and Xiang Jiao) for sending me some lovely goodies as one of the winners of their first giveaway. This is probably the first time in my entire life that I have won anything, especially something so luxurious! They have an amazing blog so please stop over and check it out if you haven't already!
A shot from last weekend on route to Fanime! I got another baby alpaca, which is so cute I can't even handle! Can you believe this is a wig? I got it in Taiwan, but it looks so natural! Only I'm not very experienced in wearing them so I kept tugging on it and it was quite embarassing..
