Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Makeup Primer in 002

Usually I can’t use any primers with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation as¬†it is a VERY fussy and nitpicky foundation- just smears and slides and looks awful!

I’m so so happy with this ūüôĆūüŹľ definitely¬†recommend! Think I got it on Amazon UK for ¬£5+ so it’s VERY affordable.¬†I’ve tried Smashbox primers over the same Estee Lauder foundation and it didn’t work out either ūüėě and this is literally 1/4 the price¬†and works so much better!

It goes on so smoothly and does not leave any chalky residue like the¬†W7 Prime Magic Face Primer did. I got the W7 primer¬†on Amazon UK for ¬£3 and it does leave your face feeling deliciously smooth and covers all your pores really well, as if it has been airbrushed, but any application of liquids makes it flake right off. Which is reaaally not ideal. I use it only if I can’t be ars*d having foundation on, but still want my skin to look smooth.

The W7 primer is very similar to the TONYMOLY Egg Pore silky smooth balm and The Body Shop all-in-one instablur, which I did a review of previously here.

It helps manage my oily skin too, which is a huge plus point. In fact, I had to go over with the Mario Badescu facial spray¬†and skip a setting powder because it started looking a bit dry and I didn’t want it to end up cakey.

HELP!!! Miniskirt Issues

Agonising over whether I should make the purchase.


4.90 bucks only, but my parents would probably kill me for this hahaha.

And I’m kinda broke already… I need to save up some more money for the five bottles of O.P.I I’m eyeing!!


Lookie here!!

Tell me if it’s worth it :/

I’m deliberating between 5 (navy blue), 6 (boring but practical black), and 8 (wine red)

 

 

Online Shopping… all under $5.

I think Qoo10 is out to bankrupt me.

Honestly, how can you resist products like these??!!

And so cheap too! (but if you’re buying them all, like me, they’ll add up to a lot)

 

On my ‘Must-Buy’ List:

 

1) Guardian Angel Alarm Keychain- 4.90 SGD

My mum’s getting this for my sister and me.

She says we need it in case any pedo old men get near. And I kinda agree cos’ I seem to be a favourite with pedo old men ._.

I’m kinda skeptical about the quality but I’ll be sure to tell you guys about it when I get it! It’d better not die on me during a crucial time~

 

 

 

2) Silicon coin/key pouch- total 3.20SGD (2.70 SGD + 0.50 SGD shipping)

 

 

 


3) Stamp collections- 3.90 SGD

 


4) More stamp collections!! – 5.90 SGD

okay, okay, fine… this exceeds 5 bucks. But not by much!!

How can you resist such awesomeness??

(I’m getting the Happy Life Stamp Set)

 


5) Stamp Ink Pens for precise colouring- 1.90 SGD

 

6) LED Candle Nightlight- 2.90 SGD

I ABSOLUTELY WANT THIS but be warned, it’s kinda puny.

9.6cm x 4.6cm (height x width)

I’m getting the yellow light one!

 

 

**********************************************************************************


Stuff I’m still hesitating to get:

 

1) Bullet Ice Tray/ Chocolate Mould- 4.90 SGD

So cool and awesome and all, but… would I use it?

(hopefully I can coax my mum into getting it)

 

 

 

 

 

2)And its (not-as-nice) counterpart, the ring ice tray and chocolate mould- 4.90 SGD

(not getting this though)

 

 

3) Couple doggy earphone winder- 4.50 SGD

(undecided because my bf might not use it)

 

 

 

4) Taiyaki earphone winder. Impossibly cute but I don’t need that many earphone winders anyway- 1.90 SGD

 

 

 

 

5) LED Reading light. Not sure if I should get this because my mum only reads stuff on her iPad- 4.20 SGD
