One thing that I love (that I don't talk about as much) is makeup.
For years I used pretty much exclusively MAC makeup (and I still use quite a bit, it's fabulous makeup). However, for some reason their mascara and eyeliner irritate my eyes. I have no idea why, and I don't know anyone else who has this problem. So I started searching for a new brand to use.
I tried Dior Show, because I heard great things about it. It was pretty good, but very hard to get off, which I didn't like. Around that time, one of my friends purchased Fiberwig mascara from Japan and began using it, and it worked really well, so I started using it. And it was amazing.
Fiberwig has small fibres which attach to your lashes to make them longer. It's a pretty cool concept, and it works really well. It used to be available at Japanese grocery stores, but then Sephora monopolized it, and they don't carry the brush that I like. So I went looking for a new mascara.
As for eyeliner, I tried the pen style liners that are popular in Japan and fell in love with that style. It's the only kind I use now. I tried several different brands, but Dollywink has come to be my favorite.
Since I liked the eyeliner so much, I decided to try the lashes, in style #1.
Today at the store I noticed that they now carry the Dollywink eye collection (mascara and eyeshadow) and decided to pick some up to try out.
I'll post reviews once I use these!
My other makeup staple is BB Cream. Now, the important thing about BB Cream is finding one that works for your skin. I lucked out in that my friend purchased this BB Cream and it made her break out, so she gave it to me. It works great with my skin. I constantly get people complimenting my flawless skin, which I tell them is a lie. It's all BB Cream! In reality I have terrible skin T_T
I might start doing more detailed makeup shots and descriptions if people are interested. I think my only ones so far have been for TRON haha!
