i’ve fallen in love with a few products very recently and anything else prior to that… well, i THOUGHT it was love :p

those products are: by candlelight & petticoat MSF (my first MSF’s… i know…) and my sleek eyeshadow palettes!

i can’t stop playing around with them my sleek palettes and i always smile whenever i see the MSFs applied on my face. i also may or may not get giddy whenever i look at my MSFs. *sigh*

Urban Decay Eyeshadows were the first non-drugstore items I ever purchased. I bought Midnight Cowgirl and Shattered at the same time and back then it was the craziest thing I ever did, makeup-wise. Ha!

No one ever taught me about makeup (my mom had- and still has- a perfect complexion and so never wore ANYTHING), so if you look through photos of me through the years you can see my progression in experimenting with makeup. First the UD shadows, then I developed an obsession with Smashbox, trying out different mascaras and on to MAC pigments and lipstick. Probably not unlike yourself and your readers, it only took one product to snowball into makeup obsession!

probably the japanese makeup products my friend bought for my birthday. i have no idea what the brand is, but i still keep them because i love the packaging!

Coty Air Spun Face Powder. It was a fixture in my house growing up and I use it still. I can no longer find the unscented powder because it can smell very old lady. Still, it keeps you matte.

Make Up Forever’s HD Microfinishing powder. Although MAC’s eyeshadow were the first non drug store make up item I have ever purchased, I had never spend more the $15 on a single make item before MUFE!

The first product I fell in love with was this mini makeup kit from ELF. It was when I first started getting into makeup. I love ELF products, I have lots of stuff from their studio line, and their brushes are my go-to brushes. Plus you can’t beat the proce.

Many moons ago, when I was just a young high school girl, I got this brownish pinkish lipstick from Revlon. I loved it! I remember it was in this green tube. I kept it for 20 years afterwards even when it was finished! I only threw it out the other day. That is when my love for make-up started. 🙂

Call me crazy, but it was timeBalm. Yep, as in… concealer.

I’ve always been obsessed with the concept of a flawless (but light; very light!) base, and it was my first high-end purchase ever. It’s been ages, and I still love it just as much : ) That’s not to say that I haven’t found other, more interesting things to love along the way, but it was definitely my first!

An Avon Eyeshadow called Iced Mocha – they still sell it but they have changed the colour!

I used to wear this every single day!

It was a grape flavored lip balm in a tube; I think it was heart shaped. I didn’t want to run out though so I rarely let myself use it… Which seems silly! I think I still do that with my most coveted products!!!

I think the first one I ever really, really fell in love with was my Urban Decay Ammo Palette that came with a full sized UDPP. Every single day I would come up with a new combo from it, and I still haven’t used up that UDPP! I love it!

I always admired Guerlain Meteorites and Dior quads. My dream was to have a Dior display in my bedroom with all the beautiful make up even if I couldn’t use all of them :-). My favourites were the eyeshadows. It was like 15 years ago when I fell in love with high end make up. Back then we only had a few department stores in Budapest that kept luxury brands. I could only afford Max Factor products as I was in high school.

I used to pour some on the back of my hand, rub it and then watch it changing color…my favourite color of the bunch was bambi!!!!

It was a body scrub from Bath and Bodyworks. I think it had loofah bits in it and smelled of sea spray or sea foam. I can still remember what the packaging looked like as well *sigh* memories.
