February Favorites & Misses!

Hi everyone! 

Finally back after midterms to present you February Beauty favorites and misses! :D 
I know it's been a while since I have done a beauty haul post so this is going to be quite a long one! 
Get ready! 


  • Clarins Face Treatment Oil in Lotus 
This is a 100% Pure Plants Extract.

Before I used this product, I used to use light weight cream or gel moisturizer. I still break out no matter what. I never thought that an oil type of moisturizer ever existed. Neither did I ever thought that the application of oil on oily skin (like everyone would believe) actually help heal the skin.... Right? RIGHT?? 

I don't know if any one ever remember when I talked about using Camellia Cooking Oil when I had very bad skin and acne condition last summer? To be honest, when I used that Camellia Oil, I never broke out! YES TRUE! Try it yourself if you dare! :p 

And now I finally found this amazing oil from Clarins! Before I bought the actually size of this product, I still asked for a sample one so I can try it out for a few days so I can make a final decision. 

So if any one wants me to make a full review of this product, let me know! 

  • Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask with Pink Clay
This is another favorite of the month. I bought this clay mask early last winter. After using it several times,  my face got worse and worse. I was breaking out so much that I just stopped using this mask. I regretted it so much :( 

However, the Clarins lady kept on telling me to use it but I never wanted to because I was afraid of breaking out again. 

But I gave it a shot again last month. And guess what? LOVE IT! LOL My acnes are slowly healing and redness around my cheeks are also slowly reducing. It works! :D 

My assumption to why I love it this time is because I just need to apply a very small amount of product onto my face. Last year, I applied a very THICK layer of clay onto my skin and I'm guessing that my face was very confused and just didn't know how to work on the clay of that amount! lol 

  • Clarins Serum Restructurant
This product (top) was a life saver to me! It's actually a sample one though but I love how Clarins is giving out sample product before you regret buying something that don't workout! :D 

This serum helps me to restore balance and clarity to my sensitive skin. I can use this for a period of 10 to 20 days only. It just works amazingly and I barely break out :) 

The bottom products are just to show you that I cannot use them anymore because I keep breaking out :( 

  • Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow in Soft Pink
If you guys have watched my latest Beauty Haul video from my Youtube channel, then you know that I introduced you to this product and I also have a blog post of the Valentine's Day Look. Check it out if you haven't:

I used it a couple times and there seems to be no sign of eye infections :) It's quite high pigmented but just a small downside of it is that it's a bit difficult to pick up product onto my brush or finger and then apply on my eyelids :/ Not sure why.... 

Now down to products I don't like :/

  • M.A.C Lipsticks
I know I posted a picture of these two lipsticks before and I said that I loved them. I have to admit that I love the colors of these two lipsticks but my lips were always so dried! M.A.C's lipsticks sadly don't work on me :( So I have to look for lipsticks from another brand... 

  • Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil 
This is another miss of the month because I realized that oil makeup remover breaks me out more. I never realized or even never thought that oil makeup remover was the cause of my break out :( This has to end up to be my eye remover only...sigh... 

I honestly loved this product so much because it felt so oily that I thought it cleansed and removed all my makeup thoroughly but actually it was doing the opposite :( 

However, I still want to recommend this product to those who are looking for makeup remover. I think this product just won't ever work out on me because I have sensitive skin. 

Alrighty, it's the end of my favorites and misses of the month! But I still want to introduce you all to more products I just bought!

  • M.A.C Blush
I have heard a lot of positive reviews on M.A.C blushes for several reasons:

  1. Affordable
  2. Long lasting: people have used M.A.C blush for over 2 years of the same one
  3. High pigmented
So I thought of trying one on. But silly of me, I bought a mineral one :/ I think I have a bad reaction of it but I will try it again once my skin is in a better condition :)

Again, if you have followed me on facebook or twitter, I bought a new concealer. Sadly, it didn't end up in my favorite of the month. I'm still testing it so I will let you guys know later this month :)

Below is the new Cleanser from Clarins I bought couple days ago. That's why I told you guys that I stopped using the Clinique Makeup Remover one because I've been using the wrong CLEANSER since forever!!!! T^T 

This cleanser is very milky but very gentle though! It definitely leaves a soft and radiant look after washing off my face at night! Also, I love when there is this thin oil layer early morning. Don't get me wrong but this means that my face was able to restore balance and clarity of my skin. 

So far, I feel that my acne and skin problem are improving :) So, I will keep you guys up-to-date within this month :) 

I also bought a new M.A.C brush. This is the 130 Short Duo Fibre brush. I was thinking to use this brush for light weight foundation after my skin is healed. For now I'm using it with my powder foundation. The reason that I'm using this particular brush is because the smaller the brush the more precise it gives. Plus, I love this type of hair brush. It's very soft and doesn't irritate my face much. 

Below I also got some Lancome Teint Miracle foundation. I heard that this is a water-based foundation which means that there is a low chance for my skin (who has large pores) to get clogged. Again, I will try this on after my skin is healed. 

To end this post, I would like to ask you all if you're interested if I do a giveaway? Please comment on this entry! I will have 1 or 2 M.A.C lipsticks that I want to giveaway! I will post more details of the lip color later this week!

But let me know if you're interested! :D
