Collective Haul/Swap: Kevin Beautymaker, Coffret D'or, etc.

This is my first post in the Year of the Tiger! Woo! The following is my new skincare routine - lately my skin has been super-parched, so my 2-step routine has turned into a 6-step routine to combat the dehydration. Here are the products, from left to right:

Better Botanicals Chamomile Cleansing Milk
Better Botanicals Rose & Tulsi Toner
Kevin Beautymaker Aquamarine Hydrating Serum
Kevin Beautymaker Aguamarine Hydrating Eye Serum
a decant of Desert Essence Jojoba Oil
Better Botanicals Sandalwood Moisturizer


Detailed reviews on these products are upcoming. Just a quick note though - the Beautymaker stuff is ABSOLUTELY worth your money!! I'm so amazed at what they're doing for my skin. Sheesh.
And I also won a sheet mask from Eclecticism - thank you Claire! By the way, she has a new blog which focuses more on beauty, check it out here.

 

This mask is great - I'd say more hydrating than the My Beauty Diary masks, and less irritating overall. The interesting thing is that it includes eye flaps! Haha! I'm not sure if that's intended to be removed, but anyhow, I just tried it over my eyes and it's not bad - except that I couldn't open my eyes!! lol...

 

Another Coffret D'or palette to join my family! I managed to get this in a swap, it's from the Trance Deep Eyes collection, in 05 Beige Tones. I used it today, and it's LOVE ~ ~ ~

 

I love the peachy shade in this palette. *^____^*

 

It seems like the only things I'm good at are hauls and the *occasional* review - bleh! Hope everyone had a nice Chinese/Lunar New Year, and Valentine's Day!

    Yay, finally a person that's on the same wavelength as me! Imo, My Scheming Beauty is way better than My Beauty Diary :)

    Glad the mask got to you safe & sound. I sent it in a hurry & forgot to write down a return address. :P
