Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer

I had used Bobbi Brown's concealer for a number of years before trying out other brands. The old formula had pretty good coverage but it was slightly thick for me. When they recently changed the formula, I went and bought it.

Packaging is still the same. If you get the one with powder, it looks like a small compact but I don't like fine powder getting into the concealer, so just got the concealer only for $22.
If you open and close it for a long period of time (which will be quite likely coz this little thing can last forever!), eventually the tiny little piece of plastic will come off from opening and closing so much. 
My shade is Sand. The new formula is creamier and doesn't crease on my undereye. Need to use a bit of powder to set the concealer to prevent my eye makeup from transferring to the under eye area. A little goes along the way. Great buy!!

Long Time No Post

How are you? It's been awhile. Just been pretty busy at work and the cold bug was bothering me. And now, the allergies. Life is just full of challenges. Since I haven't posted much, so thought to share with you a few things.

Butter London Lady Muck
Retail Price: $14 but I got this with the coupon at Ulta and received their nail polish remover as a gift with purchase.

At first glance is a greyish with silver shimmers but the more I looked at my nails, they looked blue to me. But quality is very good and the color is great for Spring.

Nicole by OPI Baby Blue

The picture turns out nice but I don't quite like this color. It's just a bit too sharp for work. I would use this for nail art or paint with another color to diffuse the color. Quality is pretty much the same as the OPI. One thing to notice is its new brush on this polish. 

This new brush is called Perfect Stroke brush. It's rather flat and fat. For those who only want one stroke to paint the entire nail, this maybe it. The curve of the brush does help to paint near the cuticle area.  I don't quite like it simply because I'm used to regular brush.

I just played with my nails. Only used 2 colors; Something Sweet from China Glaze and Castaway from Essie. Only used dotting tool to do polka dots and bows. Topped with Seche Vite.
