Gradation Nails & New Foundation/Primer/Powder Shades
I'm sorry if I'm slow in replying to questions/emails. I'm not able to get online so often as I'm less deskbound these few days and I have tonne of work all piled up. I have to get them cleared so that I can get some much needed rest in the next few weeks. Busy busy busy, but hopefully all will be well soon. So over the weekend, I made this attempt at gradation nails, haha! Please do not laugh, it doesn't look obvious that it's 4 colours, but I'm so pleased with myself. LOL. It includes the glitter polish from Lunasol's 2008 Christmas Coffret. I need something for my dry cuticles. I moisturise my hands often but the cuticles aren't doing well at all despite that. Blanchir has worked so well on my facial skin without much problems. I wasn't very dark to begin with but now my face is noticably brighter and fairer, the dark undertone in my skin is disappearing. I've been using Biotherm's white detox lotion and creams on my neck (cause they make my face to go haywire), and a whitening lotion on my body. So hopefully in time, my entire body will even out and my neck and arms won't be a shade lighter than my face! Unfortunately, it means that all my Legere BB cream (I have been using it exclusively as a base) and Mac NC25 powder are a shade too dark for me now. Last month at a sale, I just bought a new Mac NC25 powder foundation to replace the current one that's almost gone. Called the Mac counter. I haven't used it, so thankfully, they said just bring it down and they'll replace it with a lighter one. Anyway, someone also just got the Lunasol Anniversary base set for me as a present, it is just so worth it. It's in the right colours, I made sure, lol. I can put my Legere aside for now, though I am sad, as it has served me well. I'll talk about it abit more about Lunasol bases after several days of use. I stopped by Paul & Joe counter to take a look at their primers, and I like the original formula with less SPF. It costs $60SG plus, need to check if it's cheaper in Japan. Lunasol's primer seems much more glowy so I'm happy I got it, but I wouldn't mind getting the P&J stuff if it's cheaper in Japan. P&J's new summer Protective Foundation Primer UV doesn't have much colour so seems more like a sunscreen to me. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
