Sweets (from Sweetscents)

Another package came early this week. It's from Sweetscents this time with my fullsize orders.
I got Hide-A-Pore in my custom made shade of Medium-Dark and Champagne Glo Veil. Both are in 1 oz. bags.



Champagne Glo, H-A-P

Hide-A-Pore is now my HG primer. I use a tiny amount brushed all over my face after moisturiser + SPF and before foundation. I've been using the sample I got previously for a month now and I really love it for my oily skin. At times I just use it alone without foundation.

I've tried Champagne Glow Veil yesterday. It has a kind of light pinkish-golden color but it's sheer and can add just a tiny bit of glow on the face. I was debating before on which one to order between this and the Translucent MV. The latter had good oil control on me from a previous sample and I was thinking maybe the Champagne Glo would too coz I thought they had the same ingredients and Iwanted a slight tint. I guess I was sleepy when I made this order coz when I double checked today, the 2 had entirely different ingredients! I'll order the Translucent MV next time. Now I have a huge amount of another Glo powder, LOL!

Again, as with my previous order, there were a lot of samples included (14 baggies):



samples

Included were:
Top row L-R: Medium Cool Glo, H-A-P in Medium, Honey Bisque Glo, Sunkissed Glo
Middle row, L-R: Green Tea Powder, Beach Bum, Copper Pearl, Perfection, Silver & Diamonds
Bottom row, L-R:Smoky Quartz & Diamonds, Tangerine, Innocense, Island Orchid, Teal

(I'll make swatches soon).

I also found 3 other items in the pkg: 2 fridge magnets in calling card size with the Sweetscents logo (I forgot to take a picture) and a profile card to put in your favorites:

Pretty cool huh?

An FOTD using H-A-P and Champgagne Glo. Sorry but my FOTDs look really boring coz I rarely use eyeshadow and to think I now have more than 200+ samples and full sizes of e/s. The weather is hot and humid (even when it's raining) and I'm always in a hurry coz I'm always the last to dress up (DD comes first). By the time I finish dressing up, hubby and DD would be waiting for me in the car that I barely have time to put on any mmu :-(

Anyway:



FOTD

Sweetscents Hide-A-Pore in Medium Dark as primer
Lauress Minimalist foundation in Pure Yellow
Sweetscents Champagne Glo Veil
Terra Firma Brite Eyes on inner corners and under eyes
MMBB Adobe blush
Lips: SN Berry Crush lipgloss



This all I usually have time for to apply. If I really need to put on e/s I have to decide the night before or very early in the morning and lay them all out to be used easily or I'd rather not use anything at all.
