And so we have finally made it to the last part of August empties! Given how much I have and how I used to like opening up everything the moment I get them to “try”, to be able to stick with a few items and use them up, it makes me so happy! Let’s not waste any more time and dive right in!
A very quick eyelook for today – I haven’t done one in ages! I’ve been stuck in a neutral-eye rut for ages so I decided to do something fun and different – not too crazy because I’m going out for lunch with my parents and godfamily. Because I have asian eyelids, when I have my eyes wide opened, nothing much from my eyelids actually show – but sometimes I like it because people get surprised when I blink and they realise that I’m actually wearing something else on my lids!
I love making lists. Especially when it’s lists of empties! Here’s a ginormous list for Part 2 of February’s empties… it’s going to be a really long list, so I hope everyone enjoys reading these lists too! There’s tons of sachets, skincare, and a lot more makeup this month so let’s get to it!
My usual choice of concealer is the MAC Studio Finish Concealer; however, it’s also quite expensive. When I saw the Catrice Camouflage Cream, I wondered if it could be something similar so I picked it up. There are 3 different shades and I bought the middle shade, 020 Light Beige.

A true must-have for a flawless complexion. The Camouflage Cream with a long-lasting texture blends perfectly with the skin for invisible correction. It reliably covers irregularities of the skin, pigmentation stains and red veins. The efficient Camouflage Cream offers a high coverage and can be kept in place with powder for a waterproof effect.
The concealer is housed in a little screw-top pot with a clear see-through top. I think the packaging is not very sturdy and is actually quite cheap because there are a few cracks on the top from being thrown around in my makeup bag and now I am worried about it drying out.
The concealer itself has a very creamy texture, but is slightly dry – it’s not as creamy as the MAC Studio Finish Concealer. I use this on my spots or any discolouration, and this does a great job at covering it all up, but I find it cakes up if too much is used. Because it is a bit on the dry side, it’s not as great or comfortable on the undereye area.
On the bright side, this lasts a long time on the face, usually more than 8 hours, and the coverage is really good. With 3g of product for less than S$10, I think this is quite good value if you’re looking for something more affordable with good coverage and don’t mind a bit of dryness.
