Hello Ladies ~
Happy New Year 2016! I know it’s a week late, but better late than never eh? ;) Time sure flies so fast without us noticing it. To celebrate the new year and also to embrace everything that we’ve been through last year, today I have a very interesting post for all of you: Mumu’s Best Beauty Picks 2015!
In this post I will be talking about products that I loved during 2015 – be it purchased within the year or not – and of course, those that I believe to be the best products that outstand the other ones in performance, quality, or price rate.
So, without further ado let’s get started ~
HACCI Honey Cleansing Oil
After trying so many cleansing oils from various different brands, I can safely say this one is the only cleansing oil that doesn’t cause my delicate, dry & sensitive skin outbreaks. It leaves no tight feeling or strips my skin after the rinse, plus it smells oh-so-heavenly! My skin feels so happy and moisturized with this product. Highly recommended for those who has desperately given up in looking the nice oil cleanser for their problematic skin.
IPSA Metabolizer Regular 2
Are you suffering from adult acne and dry, sensitive skin like mine? Had more than enough barely-unused-moisturizers? Given up already? You should go and try this one. It’s a SKIN-SAVIOR. It’s non-sticky and absorbs easily into the skin, leaving your skin glowy and hydrated. Indeed it’s kinda pricey compared to any other moisturizer out there, but this one works like magic to my skin. Coming in 4 different types for each skin type, you can easily find the one that fits your skin condition without a fuss! IPSA’s products are seriously great and yes, they deserve more attention from skincare junkies in 2016!
MUJI Light Toning Water – Moisture Type
It’s now a gem from the drugstore range. This water-like toner looks not promising at first glance, but it totally preps your skin ready for the next step and adds nice hydration boost to the dehydrated skin without leaving stickiness behind. Its fairly cheap price also makes a huge plus point for this product. I love using it for doing CSM method or making my own DIY mask sheet!
KANEBO Suisai Beauty Clear Powder
I am allergic to all foaming cleanser except this one. This mild exfoliating facial wash powder is totally a game-changer to my skincare routine. It leaves my skin so soft & smooth without harming & drying it like how any other foam cleansers would do!
TAKAMI Skin Peel Serum
I have always been worried how acids will do bad for my skin, especially those which are strong enough to perform exfoliation. This serum proves me wrong. It’s the best AHA peeling serum with nice, clean & simple ingredients and I will not look for any other exfoliation serums anymore. Non-irritating, non-drying, just does amazing to the skin.
NIVEA Crème (Germany version)
I use this for the rough skin on several area of my body. It’s been doing its job nicely, the only thing I don’t really like is the scent! I am planning to get the Japanese version of this crème and use it as a face cold cream.
THREE Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation SPF 36/PA+++
I admit that I was torn in two minds while picking which base makeup that I should feature in this post. Finally I chose THREE, because I’ve been wearing it a lot lately and I love how it looks on my face even after hours passed by. This is the only complexion product with SPF that doesn’t cause me outbreaks. With is very natural skin-like finish and nice lightweight texture, this wins my heart quickly and beats the ultimate ELDW foundation.
Innisfree Eco Gel Liner #2 Brown
Doesn’t budge, waterproof, sweatproof, and smudgeproof. The texture is super creamy and color payoff is opaque. This underrated gel liner actually performs really amazing for its price!
ARITAUM Mono Eyes #49
Basically all Mono Eyes shadows from ARITAUM is da bomb, but I totally fell in love with this shade and without second doubt I’d feature it right away. My Bae, Jovee, is telling me to grab this because this could be a dupe for her favorite Too Faced shadow. It’s even more gorgeous in person I’d say, a very glamorous medium purple with silver glitters. Sooooooo sexy.
Shu Uemura Hard 9 Brow Pencil #05 Stone Gray
A lot of people questioned about the product I used for my brows and fellas, this . is . IT . If you want brows which are drawn natural and not ‘blocked’ with colors, you’d love to use this product to drawing hair-like lines when filling brows. The hardness of this pencil’s lead making it very suitable to make a natural and clean-looking brow. Beside, its hard lead makes this product lasts forever…! Curious about it? Don’t worry, I’ll review this soon~
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen
A perfect natural flush color! This seemingly-boring pale warm pink color turns into a beautiful milky pink-apricot color once applied on my cheeks. Longevity is awesome too, it’s waterproof and budgeproof as well!
Majolica Majorca Lash King Mascara
Need I say more about this? My lashes have said it all, haven’t them?
CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet #50 La Romanesque
It’s Chanel. Why do you ask why I love it? BEST . MATTE . LIPSTICK . EVEEERRRRRR .
Giorgio Armani Cheek Fabric Sheer Blush #506 Blush
Illamasqua indeed is my thing: bold, super-pigmented, great longevity. But sometimes the Angel side of mine needs something that’s sheerer, easier to apply and blend when I’m in rush and this product is the answer. I totally love how soft and smooth it goes upon application, but still buildable enough to create a subtle to medium color intensity.
Etude House Silk Scarf Hologram Hair Serum
A perfect serum that makes my hair shiny, holds curl very well, and surprisingly makes my hair blacker also! Mom loves this one too. Repurchased for several times already. Cheap yet great!
Jill Stuart Melty Lip Balm
A lovely gift from Blogger fella, Tata, which quickly turned into a major love of mine and even a Holy Grail lip balm at the moment! It soothes and moisturizes my lips like magic, leaving my lips oh-so-smooth and kissable the next morning. Shiny and a bit sticky, but this is the only lip balm I would repurchase over and over again.
e.l.f Shimmering Facial Whip in Spotlight
A $1 beauty steal! This product surprisingly makes a great debut, and the result is never disappointing – not even once! I can see why everybody’s raving the facial whip series from e.l.f. – they’re that good, I swear.
Jill Stuart Eyelash Curler
I’m so devoted to my Shu Uemura Curler, but I then found out this curler fits Asian eyes better, thanks to the flatter curve. It doesn’t pinch or poke the skin around lashes’ roots, not even once. And the real Swarovski accessories attached down there…who’s not mesmerized by it?
And that’s all for this post! Have any of the items above gotten your attention already? ;) Drop the comment in the box down below, I’ll be excited to read and reply~
See you soon, Ciao ♥ XO
