what's in my makeup bag?

hiyaaa lovelieeesssss

People often ask me on instagram/tumblr about what makeup products I'm currently using! Whenever I find a look that I like, I wear it nonstop for maybe a month or so! I recently threw out at least a quarter of my makeup because it was old. almost finished, or never used. No point in letting makeup sit there if it's just going to fester bacteria! D:

I've really been looking after my skin recently, so I've invested some well known brands! I definitely recommend all of these if you want to shell out a few extra dollars. Here are a few products that I've been loving recently.

 My little quilted makeup bag! Same one that I used in my last "what's in my makeup bag" post. Now that I look back at that post, it was almost exactly one year ago!

Day Trippin' Downtown

Hello lovelies!

This past weekend, my mom and I went downtown for a little day trip! I'm always downtown these days because I get bored of living in the burbs and downtown is only a subway trip away. She hasn't been down there for a while so it was nice to spend time on her in between final projects and work.

Starting the trip by getting off at Spadina station, took the street car to Chinatown just by Kensington market.
Stopped off at the Hong Kong Island bakery for some bunz. It was around lunch time so we stopped off for a quick snack.

 Egg tarts and honey glazed meat bun? I'm not really sure what was in this haha my mom just ordered it for me and told me to eat it, so I did. :D

Flaky flaky, nomnomnom. I love me some chinese bakery buns~ Kinda off topic (but not really), I've really been getting in to The Great British Bakeoff! I watched an episode on the flight to Anime Expo over the summer and for some reason decided to continue where I left off! Currently watching season 4 but I'll get to the other seasons soon enough.

[review] Ipsy - November 2014

Hello lovelies!

I'm back on the beauty subscription train! I used to have an ipsy subscription back when it was MyGlam but then cancelled it after the products got boring. I can't remember what was being offered, but something a few months ago caught my eye and I reactivated my subscription! It's been worth it because every month I've received something awesome! :D 

I'll try doing monthly reviews of these bags again to get back into frequent posting so I hope you guys are looking forward to more beauty posts!

 This month's theme was "Girl Meets Glitter", although I didn't really receive any glittery products lol! The eyeliner is kinda metallic? If anything the makeup bag is glittery, but I don't really use the makeup bags anyway....

Anyway, here's what I received this month! I really like this month's bag because I've used everything so far! :D

 The items I received:

Marc Anthony Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray
IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye in Medium Neutral
SeaRx Skincare Lotion
J.Cat Wonder Lip Paint in Mad Splatter
Gem Eye Pencil in Ultra Olive
