Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup

That was quite a mouthful wasn’t it? But that’s what you can expect from Benefit Cosmetics :P

I love foundations, and lately I’ve been into liquid foundations (No brushes and powder residue to clean up, and it looks and finishes more natural). My staple had been the RMK Liquid Foundation, but as seeing as sometimes I do travel (To Labuan, mainly), I needed a non-glass bottle for easier packing :P My researches lead me to Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! Brightening Makeup and I’m very happy with it!

First of all, I don’t believe in this “oxygen” gimmick- pure oxygen is actually toxic to your body and you require oxygen from the inside through respiration… so slapping on oxygen, which is a gas (And hence combines into the atmosphere), on your skin for instance, is a pretty moot point. But that’s just me, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. So having said that, I don’t expect this foundation to work it’s so-called oxygenating wonders on me :)

Anyway…

Saturday Photo Meme- What’s In Your Bag

So I have been off the grid for far too long (Been very busy, and although I have a few posts drafted, am not entirely satisfied with the photos I’ve taken for them hence the enormous delay), and so, at the beseeching and suggestion of dear Sukie from A Little Bit Of Everything, decided to start getting back into the groove with this post, which is so right up my alley too! :) It’s suggested by Sukie and taken from Yumeko of A Dream Of Tokyo.

Apologies for the dark lighting- it was night when I took these photos after Sukie suggested I do this post :P

1. Cellphone/Mobile Phone.

Black Apple iPhone 4, with a black LifeProof case. I got the sticker from Daiso for the back because I thought it was too plain. I preferred their koi sticker which I have previously used before, but thought of going for something different instead.

2. Wallet/Purse/Whatever You Keep Your Money In.

Simple black leather bifold from Braun Buffel. Just the right size for me :) It’s been with me for about 6 years now? Love it a lot either way :D

3. Something In Your Wallet (Cards/Coins/Money/Whatever).

I don’t keep my loyalty cards in my wallet because I have way too much (I have a separate purse for all of them-  the custom batik wristlet by Fion Poon that was very graciously gifted to me by the lovely Sukie as a graduation gift!), so pictured is part of the cards in my wallet- my NAUI Scuba Diver card and dearest Louis‘s name card (Which I keep a few of just in case) and some money of course :P

4. Makeup You Carry On The Go.

I’m not in the habit of touching up my makeup on the go (OCD really, and my makeup hardly fails me, touch wood), so I usually pack lip balm instead most of the time, and a lipstick for times when I need a little extra colour :P Oh, and I do carry an eyeliner JUST in case I forgot to apply it before leaving (Rare, but you never know) or really need to refresh my eyeliner (i.e. when I’m trying out a new eyeliner and it smudges/disappears). Pictured is Jurlique Love Balm, MAC Lustre Lipstick in Gem Of Roses, Great Barrier Island Bee Co. Manuka Honey SPF30 Lip Balm and Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Eyeliner.

5. Whatever Else You Wish To Share From Your Bag.

The aforementioned wristlet, the incredibly cute LeSportSac pouch I put everything else in (Tissues, wet wipes, hand sanitiser, aforementioned makeup, small notebook, a pen, spare cable, Sharpie) and my Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses in its case. I tend to want to travel as light as possible as carrying a too-heavy bag will result in painful shoulders as the day wears on, so I try to minimise the things I bring along and this is all :D

Please visit Yumeko‘s blog for the original meme post, and also fellow blogger Sukie‘s post on it too! :)

Hopefully I’ll be able to get back into the groove after this ;) Have a great weekend!
