my first venture away from VMV

i just realized recently that i need to start wearing makeup. my face is still smooth and wrinkle-free and i look relatively younger than those women my age, but i wanna enhance my looks now that i'm a mommy of 2.

anyways, here are the things i decided to get. mind you, i got a vmv foundation and blusher few weeks back but i still cant see "vmv makeup" as real makeups. yea they do the job beautifully BUT the selection is very small and i think vmv's makeup line is still more of a skincare hidden on a makeup. which i have nothing against of course! but i wanted to experiment with colors and such sooo.. what do a girl who wants to try something new do? go to girltalk haha. endless feedbacks, useful and not are there. that's what i did. and these are my initial buys:

a dior travel studio palette.

since i can't even go to the convenience store next block, my chances of venturing out of the house to go cosmetics shopping is nonexistent. i wanted to get those MAC, NARS and Shiseido things that really look great (from what i see on the other girls' stash) but for now, AND to practice, i think i'll make do with this dior.

shu uemura eyelash curler. the regular-sized one.

seems the whole cosmetic industry is at awe with this one. so i got it. i noticed that while my lashes are still thick, it's not so long and curled as it used to be in my younger days. so i'm counting on shu to get a quick fix (especially as i'm unsure if wearing a mascara a lot of times will be OK with me since i cant take away wearing contact lenses)

shu uemura cleansing oil. the premium gold one in the middle.

uhmm.. i'm just going with the flow. everyone seems to have a good experience with the shu cleansers. haha. no honestly, since i'm getting serious with this makeup thing, i better have a good cleanser especially for the mascaras and such that i might soon be wearing regularly. and while vmv makeup i honestly don't even bother to wash it off on my lazy days (i've worn vmv makeup 3times and 3times i slept overnight on it haha) i'm confident not to develop allergies or cause allergies to my daughter, i can't be sure with other products.
