MKUP Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask

Yesh! Finally made time to share this cloudy mask review with you!

WHAT IS CLOUDY DEEP PORE CLEANSING AWAKENING MASK? 

Luxurious Skin Essence Treatment that reawakens tired dull skin back to life, purging out impurities deep in the pores while injecting precious Arbutin, Vitamin C & Whitening Essence that stops formation of pigmentation and brightens skin to a new tone. Vitamin B5, E, Carbonated Water and Pore minimizing Essence to create ultimate skin recovery regime leaving a bright pore less and water charged skin with each treatment.

So here’s me with my mask!

 

Pardon the poor quality photo! I was using my iPhone front camera and quality got compromised due to insufficient lighting..

The super dense foam starts to oxidize as soon as i applied on my face.. I look so ugly max with the mask! It’s difficult to apply them smoothly because it’s so dense it doesn’t move swiftly when you push it..

 

Oxidization process is kinda slow (or maybe i applied too much).. It has been more than 20 mins but some part of my face are still “cloudy”.. But nevermind! I went ahead to wash my face and tried to remove my blackheads!

I must say, this works so much better than the Deep Pore Cleanser! Blackheads were easily removed with Cloudy Mask and skin does looks brighter (not whiter!)

So if you’re contemplating to get Deep Pore Cleanser or Cloudy Awakening Mask, I would recommend you to get this instead!

MKUP Deep Pore Cleanser

FB advertisement are scary! Just a short 2 min video made me spend $64.80!

Not bad right??? Like so easy can!!

*finger clicking* ADDED TO CART!! LOL!!

Then another FB advertisement

Seriously.. they’re not like made expensive hence thought just give both a try…..

Today, i’ll just be sharing the review on Calendula Extract Deep Pore Cleansing Mousse!

Easy to use is definitely the first thing that comes into my mind! brush and cleanser all in one bottle. No need to lather any foam and just a push u’re ready to scrub scrub scrub!

After trying, I wouldn’t say this is the best pore cleanser I had tried. It didn’t remove as much pores as what the video shows.. Video’s a lil too extreme i think.. sigh, 广告都是骗人的..

Well at least i tried! If you would like to give it a try too, check out from Qoo10 (click image to be redirected)!

However, the Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask is another story!!! I will share that with you again in another post with more pictures!! That one is much better..!

 

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!

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!

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!

BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence Drink

HARD TRUTH ABOUT HEART HEALTH

A recent survey has found that Singapore workers are spending more hours at work relative to their regional counterpart, resulting in workplace stress.* Together with the sedentary lifestyle from sitting at the desk the entire day, Singapore workers are facing increased risks of high blood pressure and heart diseases.

*S’pore workplace stress on the rise survey, the Business Times, 27 Aug 2016

Now what has that gotta do with today’s post? Read on..

rubysignature2

Introducing Unique RubySignature™ Formula!

Unlike normal collagen, RubySignature™ formula is created with a unique and precious blend of ingredients derived from natural sources. It contains micro-collagen and one of mother nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin (micro-algae extract). Scientifically proven, its anti-oxidant power is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10 and 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

rubysignature

Collagen is necessary to support the skin’s structural foundation to improve firmness and elasticity for youthful and supple skin. Astaxanthin serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the collagen-depleting procedure. In containing both micro-collagen and astaxanthin, RubySignature™ formula defies the ageing process by performing a vital triple-action of supplying collagen, protecting against collagen degradation and delivering collagen efectively to skin cells..

Infused with natural pomegranate juice, BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen makes for a truly delicious treat and an indispensable beauty oral supplement that addresses the heightened needs of aging skin. Designed to easily complement your existing topical skin care routine to form a comprehensive beauty regimen, the BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence range is available in both drink and strip formats. Daily consumption will help to ensure that your body is adequately supplied with the essential nutrients for optimal skin support and protection. For optimum efficacy, it is recommended that BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen be consumed twice daily to experience the skin age-reversing diference in 6 weeks*.

*Results may vary according to individuals

I had drank this for about a week now. I can’t say it changed me totally but I can see the radiance on my skin every morning when I look into the mirror! (Can’t be sure if that the glow of entering married life or.. LOL) Anyway, I do like this product as it’s sweet and easy to bring around. I’ve already packed it and was suppose to bring to Bali for my honeymoon trip but it slipped my mind..! Tsk!

(Hmm, got drifted a bit….)

Nonetheless, not to late to start when I returned because there were breakouts on my face during my trip (caused by the wedding’s heavy makeup I believe)!! After consuming 2-3 bottles I started to see slight result – my breakouts are healing, skin getting better too.. Who doesn’t love to see a beautiful self? At least I do! Although this drink sweet (might be a lil too sweet if u don’t really like soft drink) but it can be tastier if it’s sparkling!
Seriously, I  can’t help to think that at my age, I really need the aid of collagen drink to help me maintain YOUTH!!! hahaha! If I didn’t recall wrongly, an average person will need 5000mg  of collagen per day and consistancy is the key..! Just drinking 1-2 bottles a day, you’ll get smoother skin, firmer skin, less wrinkle formation.. WHY NOT???

Today I’m sharing with you BIODERMA  Sensibio series of products!

Sensibio H2O

Bioderma’s makeup remover is by far my favourite product! So many competitor came up with similar, as good too, but none can compare to THIS!

A cleansing and make-up removing water that respects the fragility of sensitive skin! It combines performance and very high tolerance!! It cleanses and removes makeup from the face and eyes (Yes, no separate eye maeup remover required!), soothes and clears up irritated skin! Best of all, it’s non-rinse and give a feeling of instant freshness!!

For such big face I have, all I need is 3 cotton pad! One for each side and last one for the whole face to ensure it’s all cleaned! On a side note, this is just my daily light makeup for work. For dramatic makeup, you might just need a lil more..

img_6128

In fact, I think I did a post on this makeup remover quite some time back.. you can read it from HERE..

Next up, something new!

Sensibio Dermatological Water!

img_6136

Using highly purified water that is enhanced by a perfect balance of mineral salts and oligo-elements, the Bioderma Sensibio Dermatological Water soothes skin while maintaining healthy skin cells. A remarkable ally for sensitive skin, it combats various skin reactive signs. Soothing agents such as mannitol, rhamnose and zinc also provide quick and lasting relief to sensitive skin.

Sensibio Dermatological water was developed through BIODERMA dermatology research. Thanks to a perfect balance of mineral salts and oligo-elements, Sensibio Dermatological water perfectly respects the skin’s biological and physiological characteristics and is therefore an ideal ally for sensitive skin to combat various reactive signs (dermatological procedure, hair removal, after shave rash, sunburn, etc.) and sensations of discomfort.

Its unique composition and the D.A.F. (Dermatological Advanced Formulation) patented natural complex help increase the skin’s tolerance threshold in the event of external stress.

Soothing agents (mannitol, zinc) quickly and lastingly relieve the skin. The skin is soothed, comfortable and radiant.

 img_6132-1

Use it as often as desired to freshen up skin or to remove the balance of mask left behind on face. Thanks to its isotonic formula, the skin can be air-dried with no dabbing! (Of course to show u the particles are really FINE, I SPRAYED a lot on my face so that it can be captured through my phone.. For normal cases, you won’t even feel the water..)

Last but not least, another new addition to Bioderma Sensibio series!

Bioderma Sensibio Gel Moussant!!

img_6140

The Sensibio Gel Moussant gently cleanses while hydrating and soothing sensitive skin. Enriched with skin conditioning ingredients such as coco-glucoside and glyceryl oleate, it also has lipid-restoring and moisturising properties.

Singapore 1st Orchid Stem Cell Beauty Drink

Orchid symbolizes luxury, love, strength and beauty. It represents refinement and perfection. With more than 25,000 species of orchids and over 100,000 hybrids growing throughout the world, these exotic flowers have been a part of many cultures since a long time back.

Orchids were used to promote good health and cure diseases by the ancient Chinese, ancient Aztecs brewed a strength potion from its flowers to obtain power over their enemies, Europeans used it in Love potions and the Geeks used it for fertility.

Today, Orchid extracts (the flower as a whole) are use in multiple varieties of products including hair care, body care, and skincare products. However researchers have found a breakthrough in an untapped part of Orchids; its stem cells.

Do you know? Fundamental to having good skin is maintaining healthy skin cells. To fully benefit from any oral beauty supplements or skincare, it is important to have healthy skin cells to fully absorb and locks in the skin beneficial nutrients. Research discovered Orchid Stem Cell is a powerful antioxidant and possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties, particularly young orchid stem cells protect the skin from environmental damages while hydrating and renewing our skin cells thus making it an excellent youth revitaliser which works on almost all skin types.

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!!
