I miss this! I finally found some time to road test my latest purchases and tadaaan! Here it is. I noticed that there's a common denominator amongst them, they're all in nude shade! I am not heavy on make ups but from time to time, you'll see me testing products that I truly believe in. Most of them are bought, very very seldom you'll see stuff that are part of press kits. It's a good thing since you'll be aware that my reviews are unbiased :)

After applying Olay 7-in-1 moisturizer (Review HERE), I lather some Big Easy (CC) Cream from Benefit. It's a part of my June 2014 BDJ Box purchase. In fairness, BDJ box has the most promising beauty surprises in their kits. Bronzer and brush came from a thrift shop in London. Shop's name is Primark. And of course, my recent favorite lipstick, Pink Nouveau from MAC. Here are some of my recollection on this loot:

Big Easy Cream from Benefit is buildable and long-wearing. I noticed thought that you have to be generous in applying them onto your face plus the fact that they cost so much, you might check some price friendlier product that delivers the same result. My suggestions are MAC Studio Fix NC 35 or Etude House BB Cream.
Bronzer's title is Sunkissed Shimmer Compact in Medium. Since it's summer season {when I bought it}, bronzer's making a huge comeback that time. It can be a highlighter and/or contour powder too. With magical hands from MUA's (which I am not, lol) possibilities are endless.

MAC Pink Nouveau is a classical pale pink staple for every girl. It doesn't look much in pictures but it's pigmented and noticeable in person. Being MAC, you have to shell out a thousand buck for this piece but yeah, it is what it is. Overall, I think it's an investment too {for lack of better term}. Investment in a way that I'd rather buy one quality lipstick rather than 10 cheap knock-offs. Again, it's a case to case basis. What's your latest purchase? -CMK
