SWATCHES : Make Up Store Venus & Vanilla

I popped by MakeUp Store today. I've only only owned two pigments from them years back and i don't really know why the brand doesn't intrigue me. They have their shops in prominent malls here and been here as long as i remember. Very nice cosy environment with extra attentive sales people. If you're not comfortable with a salesperson shadowing you, please head there with a friend.

I was curious about the lipsticks but didn't like the fact that there's no matte range, as told by the salesperson.
I was browsing around and spotted the pretty, shimmery, golden, bronzey and pinkish corals at the bottom shelf. There was the range of cream foundation and high tech lighter.

They reminded me of my Illamasqua Illuminator and MAC msf which i adore very very much.
I love glowy faces be it on myself or on my clients. There is simply no personality to a matte face unless if it's well contoured.

Tried a few and settled for one, Venus. It is a coral with gold sheen. It smells like honey and texture is creamy, easy to apply with fingertips and leave a lil waxy aftermath. First three ingredients are petroleum, lanolin and beeswax. This might clog your pores so a thorough removal is advised. The colour pretty much will suit most skin tones. I can't wait to put it on later <3

The second item i picked up was the Microshadow in Vanilla. A very rich matte off-white eyeshadow. It felt so velvety. For an eyeshadow pan, it is big. 4cm diameter and 3.5gram product for only SING$27.00. How awesome.

The third item is that cuteeeee tiny egg sponge. I am not exactly a sponge person but i'll try it out. Can't really comment on it yet.

I can't wait to pair up my Venus with bright pink lips, that Vanilla eyeshadow, cat flick liner and bigggg lashes. Post it up later!
