Sunday Stash Shopping #41: Bobbi, Angelique, Audrey

It’s one of those rare days that I didn’t know what makeup to put on. We usually stay home for Valentine’s but this year, Mr ChloeAsh decided to do something special for me. He even arranged for someone to babysit all 3 kids, so I was really touched. We went out for a movie, watched Jupiter Ascending (loved Mila’s variety of makeup especially the red one for her wedding) and then had dinner. Anyway, in the end, I just went with what felt comfortable at that time, and here’s what I came up with.

That’s NARS Audrey on my lips and for the rest of the face, here are the products.

I used 2 mascaras because they don’t work very well if used alone. Sigh. My dilemma with mascaras. This mascara from Eyeko has great formula, but why must they make the wand look like this? So I had to resort to my Sucky Sucky technique.

Anyway, when layered, they’re not too bad. I’m trying to convince myself anyway. I’d apply the Eyeko one first, let it dry then apply the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill (or vice versa, negligible difference). The result is still at most underwhelming, but definitely better than worn alone. This is me trying to make them work because I can’t give away mascaras I’ve used! Sucks big time.

Here’s a closer look at my Bobbi Brown eye makeup. I used a matte blending shade on my lids (Earth) and on the hollow of my eye socket before darkening the outer corners of my upper and lower lash line with a black (Rich Caviar). I then used a shimmer (Golden Bronze) and dabbed it from the inner corner to the centre of my lids.

Also, can I say again that I love the blush? *swoon* And those freckles. No skincare could get rid of them. I know I can’t beat them so must I join them? Hahaha… one day, I will Darth Maul these freckles and zap them away with my dual ended lightsaber or something.

I hope you liked today’s look! Happy Sunday 🙂

  • Sucky Sucky Techinique LOL!!! You are the best. And the BlushBallz look so pretty on you-the whole look is so pretty! And I adore your freckles-I wish I had some!

    • Lily

      Freckles make my complexion look dirty though! And yes love the blush.

  • Very pretty, Lily! 🙂
    Audrey reminds me of the Dior Black Tie. How would you compare them colorwise?

    • Lily

      Hi Lena, I swatched it side by side on Instagram for you. When worn on the lips, Black Tie is a little more blue and of course the finish is glossier. Black Tie can also emphasise lip lines of not scrubbed. Audrey is more forgiving overall 🙂

      • Again, thanks so much for taking time to do a comparison swatch. Very sweet (and helpful, of course) of you, Lily.
        Have a great week ahead. 🙂

        • Lily

          Glad you found it helpful, Lena. Any time 🙂

  • Beautiful look! I love your freckles! So youthful! That Audrey is the main star here, imo!

    • Lily

      Audrey is definitely the main star here 🙂

  • You look beautiful Lily! And yes those lips, just gorgeous!

    X Alice

    • Lily

      Thanks, Alice. You have to get Audrey then!

  • Liz

    You look gorgeous! That lipsticks is perfect on you. 🙂 And don’t remove those freckles! I love them!

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. I have a love hate relationship with those freckles. LOL!

  • Ha! The first thing I thought when I saw this was, “I love her freckles so much! So pretty!” Love your whole look. Going to click on this sucky sucky thing now…I HATE it when I have to layer mascaras and they don’t even end up looking bombastic. If I’m mascara cocktailing, I want RESULTS! And that Eyeko brush…what the HELL is that supposed to do?! I had a run-in with a Rimmel mascara brush that just continues to boggle my mind. It’s S-shaped. And HUGE. ???? Whose eye shape would this work for?!

    • Lily

      LOL at mascara cocktailing. I swear some companies make their brushes look wild just to be different. They do NOTHING! Well, nothing for my lashes anyway *cries*

  • Paritashah26

    OMG i absolutely love this look! gotta get Nars Audrey for sure! its stunning!

    • Lily

      Get it! Audrey is beautiful 🙂

  • Bella

    You look absolutely gorgeous. I love Audrey too. And your cheekbones are looking razor sharp, I’m so jealous!!

    • Lily

      Thanks Bella. It’s all in the camera angles. Hahaha

  • You look fabulous, Lily! Ten points for the Mr. for arranging date night! 😀 I love that blush on you, too – it’s ultra romantic!

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie. I was surprised he did that! It’s been a while since he arranged everything. Haha

  • silverkis

    Very very pretty, Lily!!! No need for Darth Maul, i think your freckles are very endearing! Hope your date night went fabulously!

    • Lily

      Thanks Linda. I’ve pretty much made up my mind to zap them away and yes, we had a great time!

  • Jaa

    I thought freckles were the thing right now! I think they look great on you. In fact, it wouldn’t be Lily without those cute little freckles! 😀 Your husband was so sweet. I love small surprises like that. Nothing big, just the two of us….. awww lol I should stop!

    • Lily

      Thanks Jaa 🙂 And again, congratulations on your engagement and also moving back to Thailand!
