Do you know the problem of being a beauty blogger? You always want to try new things despite the fact that you have pretty much found your holy grail. I have been a faithful UDPP girl ever since I got a mini bottle with the Naked Palette, so why get tempted by NARS Pro-Prime Smuge Proof Eyeshadow Base? Or more importantly for you guys, do I regret being tempted? Read on to find out!
I’ve never managed to do any monthly favorites features. It seems that the timing is never right! Nevertheless, I grasped the opportunity to test out some of my favorite products in Taipei, and before summer is over I proudly present Mostly Sunny Summer Favorites: Heat/Humidity-Resistant Makeup!

Ever since I saw Rouge Bunny Rouge Abyssinian Catbird, it has earned itself a solid place on my wish list. However, the eyeshadows in pot are rather pricey, so when the refills came out I was really happy to finally get this shade at a greatly reduced price!
Today is my birthday, and Mostly Sunny is turning 6-month-old in a couple of days too, so I reckoned it’d be a good reason to celebrate! I’m going to keep my blabber short, but I’d like to thank all of you for being there for me! It’s been a fantastic journey, and I could never have done it without you. That’s why I’m throwing a big giveaway to say thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
The giveaway will have three winners, and anyone can participate! Do you want to see what I have in stock for you (I’ll state this point-blank here. This giveaway is NOT sponsored in any sense. I bought everything with my own money)?
The three sets of prizes include #1 On the Beach, #2 By the Pool , and #3 Eternal Spring (yes I am geeky enough to give prize sets names…). I have reviewed most items here (the review for Guerlain Shine Automatique will be up this week), and I like them so much that I want to share them with you!
Hey everybody, happy Saint Patrick’s! I know by the time this goes up it’ll be past midnight here, but for the majority of you it’s still Saint Patrick’s, so let’s pretend it’s all OK :p
To create my Saint Patrick’s Day look, I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Pencil in Stash as base, blended out with my finger. I then put the lighter shade of NARS Paramaribo on the inner half, and then MAC Humid on the outer half. My inner corners are highlighted with the browbone shade on the left column of Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone. I lined my upper lash line with Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel liner, and my lower lash line with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Pencil in Mildew. I smudged both out with the crease shade on the right column of Comfort Zone.
I used Cargo Rome on my cheeks, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess to contour. On my lips I had MAC Butterfly Dream layered on top of MAC Sweetie.
Here are some more pictures so you can see everything from different angles. Do excuse the huge pimple I didn’t manage to cover up on my chin. It has actually been majorly improved compared with how it was a couple of days ago!
For someone who would wear green eyeshadows on any given day, Saint Patrick’s Day is like a happy free-for-all! In retrospect I could have blended everything higher for more drama, but it was actually the first time that I layered eyeshadows on top of a liner, so I still have to practice some more!
Did you guys wear green for Saint Patrick’s Day? Do you have a favorite green eyeshadow? Or is green a color you haven’t found the courage to wear?
I hope you’re having a nice weekend! I’ll be working on the Katy Perry false eyelashes post tomorrow, so you can keep your eyes peeled for that 🙂
