Obviously, I failed the ten-post challenge. ^^;;; I even prepared photos of products for review, yet I couldn’t blog in the past week because I was very busy and exhausted. But that doesn’t mean I won’t do it anymore. 😛
Anyway, I’ll be reviewing now this cheap but effective toner:
Garnier Oil Clear Pore Tightening and Anti-Shine Astringent
I got interested in Garnier after I tried their Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream. Thanks to Netbooster Asia and Garnier, I got more Garnier products to try including the Oil Clear Astringent. 🙂 I was very happy when I received this as I need anything that would control the oiliness of my t-zone.
I don’t haul like mad. I only get what suits me or what I really need. Because, honestly, it’s hard to have other _expensive_ interests such as gaming and toys. Budget is a must for me! For all of us actually. 😛 But I admit I sometimes buy cosmetics on impulse. Lately I have been into buying lipsticks and blushes. The thought of summer made me want some corals although I keep getting drawn away by pretty pinks, reds, and plums that I find. ^^;
Below are what I’ve acquired so far since January this year.
I found out not too long ago that my brother changed the settings of my camera that’s why most of my FOTDs and FOTNs were either grainy or blurry. Lesson learned — Double-check settings of camera before taking pictures. Stupid of me not to think of that when I wondered all the time why the quality of the pictures didn’t look too well. Oh, since I browsed through previous FOTDs and FOTNs, I realized how I _slightly_ got better in makeup application.
This sample of Skin Food Cactus Agave Toner came with my purchase of Urban Decay Ammo from a local seller. I only got to use it the other day. It’s the first time I’ve used a toner. Honestly, I’m unsure what a toner does and what it is for. I found out, after a little research, that it minimizes the appearance of pores and not ideal for very dry skin. In spite of knowing it may make my skin drier, I skipped application of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I just applied a BB cream after the toner.
While my friends, Shabby and Karen have been regularly delivering more-than-awesome posts here, this will be my first. I won’t be talking a lot about make up and rather concentrate on other beauty/fitness-related products and topics but since it is my first post, I’ll be mimicking the two other ladies by introducing you to a few of my own make up. I don’t wear a lot of make up on a regular basis so I don’t have a lot either. Anyway, let me introduce you to my more-than-usual messy desk.
