  1.  September Chatelaine Edition

    This month’s beauty box is looking extra pretty! Kind of jealous others got bigger samples but I’m pretty happy with the ones I got.. especially love:

    Estee Lauder ‘Sumptuous Extreme’ Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara - I usually never wear mascara because my eyes get irritated really easily. This however is perfect for sensitive eyes! You can barely feel a thing (usually I can sort of feel mascara on my lashes). I wouldn’t say it was fantastic at giving my lashes the amount of volume/length it needed but I partially blame my asian genes for short, thin and sparse eyelashes. What I do love is how water resistant it is. Most mascaras end up smudging and giving me racoon eyes but this stayed on the entire day. Bonus points for that!

    Cover FX Matte Setting Powder - Now this is the surprise of the box. I’ve always thought of Cover FX as an older brand and therefore never went out of my way to try it but am I glad that it came in this box! Definitely going to check out some of their other products now. This did not dry out my skin at all and left a very nice matte finish. The only downside is that it’s a little bit tricky to apply since it’s loose powder… I would bring around with me at all times if it was easier to handle - it works wonders at reducing shine and also providing sheer natural coverage.

    Good finds for just $12. And I got a free double issue magazine too! I’m a happy girl this month.
