Phanie's Prized Products: January 2011 Edition

A brand new year with the hopes of greater products to come. Well, let's start off this year with the first monthly favorites from yours truly. 

1. Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin in Nude
As you know I'm not a foundation-lover, but there are times when I want that extra coverage and the feel of wearing foundation. I have been using this for the past month and am loving it a lot. I also have another shade in Medium Beige because I just sometimes have a darker skin tone when I'm out and about. I love that this foundation lasts all day (I mean, 8 hours) and gives a matte finish to my oily face. I usually apply this with a damp cosmetic sponge and blend it evenly to my face. 

2. TheFaceShop The Flower Loose Powder in NB23
I purchased this a year back and fall in love all over it. I rediscovered this product sitting on the back of my vanity drawer waiting to be used. It has a lot of products in it (25 g) and costs around IDR 250,000. I guess it's way cheaper than my Nature Minerals from TBS which costs IDR 229,000 for 5 grams :0. I know, very expensive. I apply this with my elf Kabuki face brush to achieve that even complexion. It has great oil control and looks really natural on my face. Plus, the packaging is super duper cute!

3. Shills Super Magic BB Cream
I know I'm really late for liking Shills, considering that they have been out in the market for almost a year. Anyway, I really like this BB cream because it has an easy to work with texture, gives an instant brightening effect to my face, and smells like green tea (which I love!). On my lazy days, I just use this and set it with powder. 

4. Biore Body Foam in Relaxing Aromatic
I have been using this all month because the smell is just wonderful and it costs IDR 15,000 for the refill! It has a scent combination of Lilly and Jasmine flowers. I love to use at the end of the day after I got home from work, it's like taking a bubble bath. My whole bathroom would smell like flowers. I think it's only sold here in Indonesia, though. 

5. TheFaceShop Sake Body Lotion
Another oldie but goodie from TFS. I recently purchase this product because I am just SO IN LOVE with the scent and the moisturizing effect that it has. 

6. Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Blush
The only lipstick I wear this month. It's super moisturizing, cheap (IDR 75,000) and evens out my lip color.

7. The Body Shop Mattifying Day Cream
I use this with my Revlon foundation to make it more matte. It really does what it claims to do. My mom even likes it a lot. That means something from a woman who rarely cares for any makeup/skin care she puts on her face :p 

8. Olay Age Defying Series Renewal Lightening Lotion

I found it accidentally and love it ever since. It's moisturizing, has sun protection, and gives a semi matte finish, instead of a greasy and oily feeling. 

9. Vivelle After Bath Body Mist Cologne in Amour

Every time I sniff this scent, it immediately reminds me to the time when I use to play tennis a whole lot. It's because my friend would use this every time before practice and I started using it as well. It has a floral feel to it and is really fitting to spritz after a bath. They have other scent selections, most of them being floral scents. I got it at a local supermarket, check it out and they're cheap!

10. The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom eau de toilette 
I like japanese cherry blossom otherwise known as sakura. It has a calming, floral scent that has a fresh feeling. Well, you'll have to smell it to know since I suck at describing scents. Oh well, right?
