The Vamp Stamp – Vavavoom Wing Stamp

The perfect wing EVERY TIME! Bygone those bad eyeliner day!

If you’re like me, shaky hands/unbalance wing or just don’t know how to draw a wing eyeline, YOU NEED TO READ THIS POST!

As I was doing my online retail therapy, I chanced upon this wing stamp! This is not new to me, saw it online some time back but it was only available in US then. However, it seems like the perfect wing has flew to our sunny island!

Bought my wing stamp on Qoo10 (will share the link at the end of this post) and rec’d it within 3 days!! From the package, you know it’s not the authentic wing stamp BUT I don’t care as long as it serve its purpose! (Yes, in her page, it’s mentioned that the product is an inspired  product)

Tried it immediately that evening (NO, I have no evening dates nor am I going anywhere, I just want to try it before I go shower – didn’t even have my lip color on)!!

New beauty tools like this, I thought I will need a lil more time to master the skill.. who knows, it turns out pretty user-friendly!

  

Aim, stamp and done! So easy! The only tricky part is that you’ll need to angle your wing proportionately! Not too high, not too flat! Other than that, it’s really an easy tool!!

Chances of me using this again is pretty high! For wedding dinner, for party, for dates…

No more shaky hand as excuse!

  

In case you wanna know, this stamp I bought is “KITTEN” wing (start small so i won’t get a shock of my life).. Yes, the stamp comes in 3 sizes!

Last but not least, 70% more radiance giving you a natural healthy looking glow!

Pump bottles are always the best, or at least that how I feel. Clean and hygienic.. Most importantly, less messy!

  

Cant see much difference on my hand? Fret not, I did a quick swatch personally and I like the look!

So here’s me with my bare face, more like bear face.. LOL!

 

The shade I’m using is N54 Beige (somewhere light to medium shade)! The texture of this foundation is pretty smooth and it’s easy to blend out, all thanks to its light weight factor!

As for coverage, it did cover my freckles pretty well making them less obvious and I’m happy with it! I guess the half face comparison can speak louder than my words.

Now on my whole face? Ta-daaa! Matte but not flat! Totally loving the combination of this foundation!! Semi-matte and giving you a lil glow! Able to cover my freckles yet still remain light weight and doesn’t feels cakey!! Aiseh~ Best of all, benefit that can’t be seen, the vitamins infused in this foundation!

Now complete our flawless face with BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX CONCEALER!

Time to say bye-bye to dark circles and pufy eyes! Brighten and energize in a single step by using this product!

It’s spherical powders will blur and smooth your skin for a silky finish! It contain light reflecting pigments that can gives you immediate radiance and undetectable finish!

How true? Read on again!!

This concealer comes in a small tube with cushion tip. Again, it’s a mess-free packaging and totally compact to bring around for touch-up etc.. ❤

 

I got myself a shade 51 (light), a tone lighter than my own complexion. This way, it can act as a highlighter as well! How smart! Okay, anyway, I guess you won’t be able to see much from the hand swatch.. Fret not (again!!), because I swatch it on my face too!

 

Healthy Mix collection seems really worthy! Concealer light weight too and easy to blend! The cushion tip can hold quite a decent amount of concealer hence you do not need to dap and dap again to get enough coverage.

 

I don’t know about you but I think it’s doing a decent job here. at least it covers my eye ring and yet doesn’t give me 2 white patch eye.. You know..

(image grabbed from google)

Now to show you with all foundation and concealer on…

   

Will I buy this again? Why not? Vitamin infused foundation leh, go where find? Haven’t I mentioned? I wear this foundation/concealer to work from morning to evening and my skin doesn’t feel dry nor cakey after a whole day!! I can’t tell if it’s really 24-hr hydrating but at least for 10-hr is no issue!

Now’s your turn to give your skin a healthy flawless look!

My stash of… Lipcolors (2016)

YEH! I’m writing again! I’ve haven’t been sharing much on makeup product this year isn’t it, especially lip color!

I’ve been kinda into lip color (again) lately but the thing is I usually put them on only in the morning. I don’t do touch up, I don’t bring them out.. LOL! Anyway, that’s beside the point. Nice color must still be shared!

img_0246

And so… here are the latest collection I have.. Enough to create different look for 2 weeks!! *pout*

Today post, I will only be sharing with my favorite few out of this 12 sticks!

img_0185

Let’s start with something new ..

MAYBELLINE – LIP FLUSH BITTEN LIPS LIPSTICK (RD02)

img_0223

Maybelline – this is definitely not my first gradient lip stick! My first was from VDL. It was pretty sheer and girls who love natural look wold probably love it (you can check it out from HERE).

I thought this would be the same too until i tried the tester at Watson’s and I’m like .. “Wow, quite pigmented as compared to VDL triple shot!” Not only that, it’s pretty easy to glide on and it can cover my dry chapped lips!

Did I mention, it smells sweet too!

LOREAL – BLOSSOM TINT CARESSE (B06 Rose Blossom)

img_0225

This cushion tint gives a velvety finish on its own and works great too when used with other lip color! I just love how the cushion can help to create gradient lips so easily and NO MESS at all!

And if you didn’t know yet, this tint can be a blusher and eye shadow too!

Below image shows u the different look it can give..  Yes, all using the same stick!

img_0451

Well I’ve tried to do some laying of the color and I think they looks great!!

img_0250

Top image is my Maybelline’s bitten lips and bottom is layed with Loreal’s tint caresse.

Chio (pretty) right? LOL.. I like how the laying works! The way it gives a playful yet not too drama look! And it’s not the boring monotone color! So 3D!

img_0227 img_0228

I’ve tried them on my hands to show u a more accurate color tone of my bitten lips (it seems more pink on lips in those photos).. It’s suppose to be more red though..

I’m definitely getting other colors to my collection!

Next, I’m sharing with you some collection I’ve got from VDL! It’s not triple shot but something that caught my eyes too!

VDL – Pantone Expert Color Lip Cube Tranquility – 01 Serenity

img_9773 img_9775

I won’t exactly say this is a lip color because it doesn’t really give you pink/red/violet color on your lips. Instead it works more like a (sheer) lip balm/ lip base.

img_0231

You applied it on your lips (clear) and just wait few sec you’ll see it turned sheer pink!

img_9776 img_9782

IMO, this wasn’t as good as Son & Park Sugar Tint but I love how the blue and pink marble effect the lipstick look! #socool!

Taking another VDL color that I have (105 Pink Positive) I layer it on top of my Serenity!

img_0234 img_0235

Such elegant color not only looks beautiful, it gives SPF protection and moisturized your lips too!

If you have realized, my VDL lipstick all comes in a cube top! This is not found in other competitors product yet! So what’s so good about the cubic edge? It actually helps your draw a more accurate/define cupid bow – easier to achieve one too!!

Next up, my happiest purchase!!

URBAN DECAY – MATTE REVOLUTION (1993)

img_0243 img_0244

Bought this during a sale event and until now I can’t get over the excitement!!

As the name suggest, it’s a matte lip color. But you can see it’s not those drying matte color. It still give a lil natural shine  and cover my chapped lips well! All this thanks to it’s creamy non drying formula!

Another beauty of this lippie is that it can gives you different look depending on how many layers you apply and how you do it!

img_0248

From a natural to a rocker! LOL.. For use who prefer lighter tone, you can achieve with 1993 too! Just lightly dap it on your lips and blend them!

Seriously, everyday different look is achievable from these different lippie!!! Try changing a color today!!

 

 

 

UV Spray Comparison

Recently I saw lotsa advertisement on sunblock spray! Sunblock spray is nothing new actually.. Few years back, I tried Enavose sunblock spray! It’s really convenient and hassle-free! That’s why here we are – a post for sun block spray!!

Today we’re comparing Cyber Colors and L’Oreal!

Bought Cyber Colors from JB’s SaSa! It cost about RM65 each but because there’s a 50% off promotion if purchase 2! So it’s as good as 1 for 1!

SPF 50 / PA+++, totally full defense!!

 

NG-Scene: Didn’t shake well enough and ended up with super thick sunblock on my hand! EEW~ Conclusion, SHAKE WELL!!

 

After shaking well, this spray works fine and smells good too! The fine particles are indeed grease-free as claim and totally not sticky at all!! *thumbs-up*

I have no idea how well it block away the UV but at least I am more motivated to apply sunblock on my body now since it’s so easy and convenient!

The only thing about this is.. you can’t spray directly onto face, You’ll have to do it the traditional way, spray onto you hand, rub it and then apply on face. Hmm.. so convenient for body but not the face..

img_8059

Now, say WOW! I thought Cyber Colors sun protection was good enough! However, this is even better!! SPF 50 / PA++++!!! Four PLUS!! Even more protection!!

It’s the 1st ultra-light UV mist for face in a refreshing flash dry watery texture with 12H long-lasting UV Protection!!

OK, after above lesson, I shake this sun block very well!! LOL~

 

As compared, L’Oreal is slightly oilier but smell nicer! In fact, the oily feeling doesn’t last very long and the good thing about this is that it can be spray directly onto our face – even over your makeup!! Speaking of convenience~ ^_^

Overall, both are as good! It really depends on what you’re looking for..

If you prefer a less oilier spray, Cyber color is for you! Smells good, not sticky, not oily..

However, if you wish to have the convenience of having one bottle and able to spray from head to toe, L’Oreal is good! One compact spray-can that blocks all the UV! Save that pretty face!!!

Nivea Extra Bright Make Up Clear (Micellar Water)

How long has it been since I last blogged about ANY beauty products? LOOONG time it is!

Well, today I’m back with a GOOD DEAL!!

Nivea’s Make Up Clear! If I’m not wrong, this should be their latest skincare range! However it’s not the “latest” that attract me!! It’s 13rushes cleansing brush that lure me into buying it!!!

Seriously, it doesn’t matter if you’re a light or heavy make-up person! As long as u do make-up (even if you don’t), I think this is a great kit to start your cleansing regime! For just S$18.90, Nivea has got you covered with Micellar Water + 3 in 1 Mud Cleanser !!

Best of all, every cleansing duo set comes with a FREE 13rushes Cleansing Brush (worth S$21)!! You think I’m kidding??

13rushes

See! A similar brush is retailing at US$15.22 (approximately S$21.01) on 13rushes website!! Probably the best cleansing deal in town!!!

 

Why buy when you can get it for free!!!?? Soft brush, very densely packed fine bristle! Doesn’t feel prickly at all!! Just touching it feel so shiok!! Totally worth it!!

Besides the brush, the next thing that got me into buying this set is the micellar water makeup remover!

I’m sure girls out there are totally good friends with micellar water!! It’s quick! It’s clean! It’s great for sensitive skin! &I’m sure you know which are the few brands that already have micellar water under their umbrella.. ie: Bioderma (a more atas brand as compared) and Biore (probably launched less than a year ago?)..

So is this comparable? Let’s ask our model~

img_8027

Here’s Miss Sexy.. She’s doll up using Rachel K’s BB cream and pressed powder, Canmake Blush, Revlon blue eye shadow, Marc Jacob waterproof liquid liner, Mac mascara & SK-II lipcolor.. I know.. She’s goddess!

So here I’ve covered half her face with cotton pad soaked with micellar water..

img_8030

Press and hold for about 3-5 seconds, and…. ta-daaaa…!!

img_8033 img_8034

I’m impressed! Quite clean with just one wipe!

img_8036 img_8035

After a few more wipes, totally good to jump into bed!!! Yes, one cotton pad for my hand’s makeup!

3 in 1 MUD Cleanser sure got me curious! Does it works like a mask or cleanser?

So now you understand? Indeed it’s both a mask and a cleanser and of course a makeup remover!

3 Effects in 1 Use:

  1. Apply as Mud Mask Absorbs make up & unclogs pores
  2. At the touch of water, massage as make up remover Removes 10 types of makeup*
  3. Cleanses as foam with whitening effect Removes impurities from deep pores for 10x fairer, water-like looking skin
  4. *Oil, talc, colorants, silicone, sun filter, dirt, fragrance, minerals, alcohol, chemicals

img_8083 

Now if you wanna grab a set too (doesn’t matter for the brush or for the great deal), just head to major retailers islandwide, while stocks last!! I got mine from Changi Airport terminal 3’s Watsons!

Glanz 2 in 1 Eyelash Maximiser

glanz

Obviously this post is about eyeliner, not? There’s more than meets the eye!!

Before I go into details, let us watch a video first…

HOW’S THAT?? AMAZING RIGHT!? Eyelash maximiser day and night!! Grow your eyelash almost 24/7!

This is Glanz 2-in-1 Eyelash Maximiser from Germany!!

Day time look pretty with the eye liner. Night time apply the eye serum and go to bed!

glanz3

One ‘pen’ two use! Convenient? Definitely!


  

Serum on one end and eyeliner on the other end!

The black eyeliner isn’t those super black or blackest black kinda black. It’s natural soft black but yet can give you the define look. Why? Because of it’s fine tip of course!


Alright, I’m not very good with drawing fine lines but hey at least it allow me to control the thickness I want, fine to thick..

However, do note that this is only water resistance not waterproof. So give it time to dry after you apply them.


I rubbed it across my hand just seconds after I put down my pen.. See the trail it left behind?


Wait a lil longer and the eyeliner will dry up slowly and kind rub proof..

Now let’s try it on….

 

Application was kinda tricky.. U’ll have to tilt the pen 45 degree to allow the ink to flow. It doesn’t work like our usual gel pencil where you can just land on your eye lid and start drawing.. Rather then me explaining.. Why not see below video for instruction!

If you’re a liquid liner person, this is definite for you! Eyeliner and eye serum all together!

And you think it will not be lasting since it’s not waterproof?? NO.

Above pic is taken after a day of hard work! Eyeliner still visible and clear! And if you are wondering why the other eye has no eyeliner.. that’s because I’d removed them prior to taking this pic!

Removal was pretty easy.. few wipes with my Bioderma and all gone.

IMG_5211

Another day I tried it again.. And this time I did a two tone..

 

Even with a gel liner as base, this eyeliner is easy to “add-on” too..!

Overall, I like the concept of applying eyelash serum day and night! If you are keen to maximize your eyelash too, head over to www.glanz.world to to order online now!! They do FREE LOCAL DELIVERY!!!

Korean beauty brand CNP Laboratory’s new Invisible Peeling Booster is a leave-on formula that gently exfoliates skin and keeps it smooth and hydrated.

Exfoliating is an important part of our skincare routine! it’s only when u exfoliate, dead skin cells will be gone and your skin will look brighter and absorb nutrients better! You know what, don’t be lazy!

IMG_5380

Illamasqua Matte Veil is the matte version of Hydra veil. I had used hyrda veil before and find it not too bad.. For matte lover, I’m sure you’ll love this!

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced..

IMG_5386

Last but not least, one of my favourite makeup remover!

Hydrabio H2O is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Thus, Hydrabio H2O guarantees unrivalled tolerance and comfort for optimum make-up removing efficacy. Moreover, its Aquagenium® exclusive biological patent retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturising capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced.

My All Time Favourite – Makeup Stash!

POST of the year!! A compilation of my favourite makeup product here!

What can get me excited? Anything NEW..!!! I remember when I was a kid, I always wanted to go home after I got my toy!! That’s why my mom always put my “shopping session” last.. 😥 Now that I’ve grown up, this habit never change.. It just got improvised! Instead of wanting to go home to open up my toy immediately, I opened them up when I got a chance to!! Like, when we’re sitting down for dinner or while waiting to bus/train?? But of course this time, it ain’t children’s toy anymore.. It’s my beauty products..

I’ve always love to try new things!! Eyeliner.. BB cream/foundation.. Blusher.. Lip color.. As long as it’s new it’s worth a try until you know it’s not. LOL! So after trying several products, below are the few that becomes the apple of my eye.. ❤
