This Saturday we went to a Christmas potluck party at a friend's house. It was snowing like crazy but we still managed to drove about 30 mins to get there. I forgot the camera so there is no pics to share. It's Jacob's first Christmas and he seem to enjoy the cold weather alot. He made funny noise when he's expose in the cold air, it made me smile every time he did that.
I ran out of my makeup remover so I went to the JAS Mart(a Japanese supermarket in NYC) to pick up some during the weekend. I am not a big Japanese cosmetics fan. the reason why is the color payoff is always a disappointment and I am not a sucker for fancy packages either. I'm always attracted to slick and professional packages. But I do have to admit that the JP product lines always have the better skincares and makeup accesories, things like makeup removers, masks and cotton cleaning pads... are few of my favorites.
My number 1 favorite makeup removers is--
I stock up on this when I went back to Taiwan. This was really popular back then everyone was using it. It has the consistency of oil but it is not oily if that makes sense. You can just use this like facial cleanser with your hand wet and all the makeups will come off completely and your face feels soft and clean, and you don't need to use the facial cleanser again. I don't use eye makeup removers cuz I don't like to constantly rob my eyes and I'm just to lazy for the extra step, so this is a real live saver! I'd used bottles and bottles of this and finally ran out. I decided to give other brands a try. But I'll def. stock this up again on my next trip back to Taiwan.
Over all I will say they all works very well compare with some of the US products I have ever tried. I just hope that some US manufacture can come up with the makeup remover like these... as we have to pay more for these babies and we go through them like crazy. I can get Biore Make-up Remover Perfect Oil for about $7 in Taiwan and they sell it for $14 here, bleh :(
Here is the look on Sat for friend's potluck party. I use the same color in Cool holiday palette (light purple and the dark blue). it's similar to Cream de Violet + Contrast. I guess I am really into purple lately :)
