1. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium
(heard good things about this; hope it doesn't break me out!!! I heard the "Light" shade was too light for even gals who are NC15/20, so I got this instead [since I do not intend on looking like I have baby powder on my face hehe...] I'll do a review in the future...)
2. Fluidline in Blacktrack
(their black gel liner; I already have Blitz & Glitz, but that one was just a dark brown with sparkles. I wanted something more dark! But overall, I love this product...it's so easy to use!)
3. A Rose Romance: Beauty Powder in Blush of Youth
(this is the only thing I got from the collection [economy crunch lol]. It smells like a rose. It looks like a rose. 11g of products, not bad.)
That is all!! :o)

I'm kinda surprised at how much makeup I carry around on a regular basis. Hey, who knows when you have to touch up your foundation, or re-apply your lipgloss, right? A girl can never be too safe ;)
So, here are the items I carry in my Betseyville makeup bag:
MAC Mineralized Blush in Dainty
MAC lipstick in Lovelorn and Viva Glam VI SE
MAC lipgloss in Pink Poodle
Shiseido Maquillage Climax Powder
Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Foundation (...why do I have 2 pressed foundations in here? Good question...I guess it depends on what I have on my face/what I feel like whipping out...)
Jill Stuart Eyelash Curler (seriously, the best one I've ever used...and its super cute!)
Dior Skinflash in 001 (uesd to brighten the undereyes mid-day, when I'm looking like crap :P)
Pur Minerals Lip Liner in Natural Calcite
MAC PearlGlide Eye Liner in Black Russian ( I LOVE this liner; its so smooth and easy to use; I just wish it wasn't limited edition!!!)
Clean and Clear Blotting Paper
The Body Shop Blusher Brush (great for on-the-go!)

I got this off of ebay.com. Came from Korea, and arrived in about a week!!
I haven't tried many BB Creams yet; this is my 2nd one. So I am comparing it mostly to the Missha BB Cream, which I reviewed in an earlier post.
This Hanskin BB Cream comes in one color, and in packaging of either 30 or 50mL. I didn't know how much I'd like this product, so I got the 3omL tube. It's consistency is quiet thick, but not as creamy as the Missha one. This one is slightly runnier. I have to admit that it's coverage is nowhere as good as Missha's; it doesn't cover imperfections, such as red spots, at all. It tones down everything basically, like redness and dark circles, but does not get rid of them entirely, no matter how much you layer this product.
But it's oil control is much better than Missha's; just as long as you set it with loose or pressed powder. But after, I'd say 4-5 hours later, you will need to blot, and by 9 hours later, my face looked very shiny overall (keeping in mind, I only get oily in the t-zone...yeah!!).
So, for the sake of summer, I will not be using this during this season. I will probably use it during the cold winter months, when my skin gets dry. I think this is a good product for someone with a clear complection, and who has dry skin. Do bear in mind that you have to go over this with concealer in certain areas that need more concealing.
I still prefer my Pur Minerals 4-in-1 foundation over this =)
