Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint! ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ – #02 Cherry Pink

Type: Tint

What I like: Natural and pinkish shade on my lips!

What I don’t like: If i have to say one, its probably gonna be the color is too light?

20140218-203320.jpg 20131106-114554.jpg

 

20130618-000305.jpg  20130618-000311.jpg

How it look: As you can see, the color is pretty sweet! Sweet pink! It’s quite runny (that’ how a lip tint suppose to be!) and sheer!

20140218-203326.jpg 20140218-203330.jpg

See how natural it blends and doesn’t looks drama! It feels like applying water on your lips, color water perhaps? Hahaha! I actually did a post on this lip tint before because it performed better than expected!

Next up is my first ever RED lip color!! Seriously RED!!

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lacquer Rouge

What I like: Super sexy! I like how the red has that bit of gold shimmer that enhance the whole lip color.

20130816-223130.jpg  20130816-223134.jpg

 

What I don’t like: I don’t know.. perhaps the color is too opaque I have to be careful every min..??

How it look: SEXY!!!! hahahah!! I’m not touching details on this as you can read it from my previous post here

20130816-223308.jpg

But I’m more than glad to show you how the color looks like on my lips!! 😉

20140218-203338.jpg 20140218-203345.jpg

Definitely a great color to use for party and prom!

Bobbi Brown ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lip gloss

What I like: Nude shade and it has shimmer!

What i don’t like: It gives my allergy!!!!

20131225-150128.jpg 20131225-150144.jpg

How it looks: This is a nude color and it’s glossy nude with a little shimmer. It looks much darker (browner) in the bottle. When applied, the color lightens.

20131225-150159.jpg

20131225-151423.jpg

Ok, here comes my favourite!! *excited*

M.A.C Lipstick ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lipstick

20140215-001712.jpg 20140215-001719.jpg

What I like: I thought I will never understand why people will go crazy for M.A.C until my first application of this lip color! It’s smooth! It’s lasting! It’s simply worth every cents it cost! All it takes is just one stroke and you will fall in love with this precious darling and (yes!) it’s one of my favorite now!

20140215-001734.jpg

This is a limited edition color – neutral beige of Naked Proof Cremesheen Lipstick – one of the lipstick from Illustrated by Rebecca Moses Collection (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)

20140215-001743.jpg

What I don’t like: NOTHING!

20140215-001747.jpg

How it look: Looks really natural yet not boring! The nude is slightly brown-peachy tone and it can cover the darkened area on my lips (due to chapping) without looking too gross! Girls who doesn’t like glossy look or pink shade probably will love this (at least I do..)! Though it’s not glossy, it is not matte finish either.. That’s another reason why I love it!!

On days when I’m on my casual style, this is definitely my must-wear!!

M.A.C Tinted Lipglass ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Lip gloss

20140215-002632.jpg 20140215-002638.jpg

What I like: Smooth application and color is really cheery!!

A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinted Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It’s pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.

20140215-002649.jpg

This is another limited edition color – Drawn To Chic from Illustrated by Rebecca Moses Collection (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)! Ehem!! Also another favorite of mine!!!

What I don’t like: It feels a lil sticky when applied but after a while, you’ll get used to it.20140215-002657.jpg

20140215-002715.jpg

How it look: Obviously this is not nude!! It looks so HOT PINK in the tube but was lighter when applying on lips! This color brightens you up (kinda makes u look fairer, IMO), makes you look bold yet feminine!

If you are a glossy girl,. you will love how this lipglass shines on your lips!

Not that I wanna repeat this but it’s like I finally understand why M.A.C is so well-loved by girls of all age!! Like OPI, you will never understand why people love it so much until you try it once!! …..and get hooked on it. T_T

Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lipgloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ LR107 Veil Rose

Type: Lip gloss

What I like: Color is light and sweet. It is scented lip gloss and shimmers~!!

20140215-003436.jpg 20140215-003445.jpg

What I don’t like: Not as lasting as I thought..

20140215-003501.jpg

20140215-003508.jpg

How it look: It’s pretty sheer (more low profile) as compared to M.A.C’s color but they have this light fragrance that M.A.C doesn’t have. That explain why it was one of my favorite nude color before I receive my Christmas gift (Lip Bag by Rebecca Moses: Nude x3)!! 😉

If you want highly pigmented color, this is definitely not for you! However, if what you want is just a little shine on your lips then get this!

Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lipgloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ LR09 Cherry Pink

Type: Lip gloss

20140215-003519.jpg 20140215-003525.jpg

What I like: This is slightly more pigmented as compared to the previous color. SLIGHTLY only! LOL…

20140215-003531.jpg

20140215-003541.jpg

How it look: Pinkier lips as compared to Veil Rose and I think it looks sweet too! I prefer this color over Veil Rose because the color is more visible! I mean, that’s is why you put on a lipstick/lipcolor right?? Else a lip balm or lip gloss will just do the trick (this doesn’t include nude color)!

VDL Tintbar Triple Shot ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Tint Bar

20140401-221056.jpg

What I like: I totally love the idea of this triple shot tintbar!! It can create a gradient lip color in juz one lipstick!! Yesh, now there’s no need for me to bring around so many lip color to create those gradient lip look! And you don’t need special technique to put this color on!!! They are not only look amazing on your lips, they are very moisturizing too!! They feel like lip balm on your lips and it’s not sticky too!!!

What I don’t like: Not many color options

How it look: I’m gonna show you the first color I put in my shopping basket…. Btw, the price I got them during the sale was 1 for S$2X (can’t remember) and 2 for S$40! So of cuz, woman’s instinct (!!!), grab TWO!! I think the original price was $28 for one. Correct me if I’m wrong… Ok, back to the color that I wanna show u!

601 Triple Peach

20140401-231150.jpg

This is more to an orange tone lip color. Natural yet not boring (because of the gradient effect!!)

20140401-231208.jpg

Totally in love with it!! If you’re a light color person, I think you should keep one of this in your stash! It’s gonna enhance your lips sooo much!!

And the next color is ….

502 Triple Bergundy

20140401-231409.jpg

Before I apply I thought I’m gonna have some brown dracula-like lips! Because the dark color look so brownish!!! However the sales person promised that it’s actually a pink tone then i tried it on my hand… True enough… It’s pink!!!

20140401-231431.jpg

As compare to the Triple Peach, this color is more playful and feminine! The gradient is more visible too!

Side track a bit! I think another name for gradient lips is called ombre/bitten lips, some even call it Korean lips! Just google and you can see a list of tutorial teaching you how to create gradient lips! But now, with VDL’s Tintbar Triple Shots, all I need to do is apply this lipstick per normal! The only “technique” I need to know is how to hold the lipstick right so that you get the darker colors on your inner lips! Not too tough right?? LOLX!!

I’m so happy I found this!! I believe very soon other brands will come out with something similar (or even better)! Here’s one more pic to show you the difference in color between them, on my hand..

20140401-225438.jpg

Update on 28 Jun 2014: Can’t resist this awesome concept, I bought a new COLOR on Qoo10!!! Yeahhh~!!

501 Triple Red

Lip04 Lip03

I thought it will be dramatic red.. But fortunately they’re pretty sheer hence won’t be too shocking to put them on..

20140701-214118-78078152.jpg 20140701-214117-78077533.jpg

They actually looks pretty natural right? It’s slightly lighter than Triple Burgundy yet color still visible and sweet.. 🙂

Well, no lips are not suitable for colors, you just have to take good care of them! How I do it? Easy!!

  • Drink more water – it will make your lips supple.
  • Do your weekly lip scrub – to exfoliate dead skin.
  • Apply lip balm before sleep – it’s the BEST time to heal chapped lips. With a good lip balm, you can see improvement overnight!
  • Don’t peel your chapped lips – you will make it worst!
  • Do not use your tongue (saliva) to lick your lips just because your feel they are dry – your are making it even drier by doing that!!

Keep to this 5 points and very soon, your lips will look sexy and healthy!

StyleXSanta Box

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Today I’m gonna share with you my December Little Black Beauty Box – StyleXSanta Box!! But before that, pls note that LBBB subscription has been amended.. It’s no longer at $19.90 (or was it $19.99?). The new price is S$21.90.

Initially I thought it was because of the One Year Anniversary and Christmas season that’s why the box got more expensive.. You know more expensive some how relates to more premium products or something special for that box? Although the box that I had subscribed to so far (since the price increase) hasn’t disappoint me but I got it all wrong. LOLX! This price increase is not due to festive seasons. It’s permanent.

起价了啦! T_T

So with the price increase am I gonna still subscribe to LBBB? YESSS, of course!! It’s juz a $2 increase and I have yet to open up a box with disappointment! The quality is still there. The quantity too! (It’s still sad that good things no longer comes cheap!! Below $20 and more than $20 makes a big diff leh~ although its juz $2! Consumer mindset!!)

So what have I got myself this CHRISTMAS!??

20131225-145309.jpg

I was just praising LBBB and this is what I got for my StyleXSanta box?!??! *heartache*

Actually a second look ……………

20131225-145319.jpg

Not bad what!?!! Although the items come in SMALL SIZE but at least they’re not sample sachets and I have branded makeup products to play with!!!

To start off, let’s take a look at….
20131225-145345.jpg

Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Serum!

In just 4 weeks nature’s next generation power plant noticeably reduces wrinkle length & depth. Without the irritation.

20131225-145359.jpg

Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Serum!

Help empower skin to rebound from ageing dehydration. Help restore youthful looking smoothness to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. This plant serum with rejuvenating Rose of Jericho, Trehalose and Sea Haricots helps keep skin happily hydrated. Skin looks and feels dewy, healthy and revitalized.

Guess what!? This is just right for me because it’s got combination dry skin! My type!

20131225-145407.jpg

SOMETHING my mom will loveee!! Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair! This is the star product of Estée Lauder, is it not??

Revolutionary technology! The power to change your skin – Every night!! This serum is a major innovation. For the first time, this breakthrough serum promotes a natural nighttime purification process—vital to younger-looking skin.

While you sleep, your skin goes through dramatic changes to repair the day’s damage.Two of the most important changes are purification and synchronization.

Purification: a natural nighttime repair process that helps remove cellular debris that can accelerate premature signs of aging.

Synchronization: a natural process that ensures cellular repair happens at exactly the right time.

Wake up to more beautiful skin – every day! Tested and proven. New Advanced Night Repair addresses all key signs of visible aging. Effective for every ethnicity.

  • Lines & wrinkles looks significantly reduced – More than 75% of women felt that their skin looked more youthful – in just 4 weeks.

  • See a radiant, more translucent & even toned look – 83% of women felt their skin looked healthier, fresher & more rested – in just 4 weeks.

After sharing so much, I now change my mind! Maybe I should keep this for myself!! If that’s not enough to make u feel WOW.. read on!

Lack of sleep – is it aging your skin too fast? New research says – IT IS! For the first time, a major independent research study shows lack of sleep can accelerate visible skin aging.

The Unprecedented Sleep Study: Estée Lauder commissioned a major independent sleep study in collaboration with University Hospitals Case Medical Center—a world-renowned center of excellence in dermatological research.

The Surprising Results: Lack of sleep can not only accelerate premature signs of skin aging, but affects skin’s natural repair processes. Clinical data shows that poor quality sleep is associated with:

  • Acceleration of fine lines.
  • Increased vulnerability to dryness and dehydration.
  • Uneven skintone.

I think i not only have to sleep more from now onwards, I gotta use this precious baby before I jump onto my bed too!

20131225-145416.jpg

Now for some eye opener!! M.A.C. Zoom Lash! Major drama. Lasts all day. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels light, supple. Ultra-sculpted brush has three-sided fibres to embrace and separate each lash, hugging every curve. Coats in one stroke from root to tip. No smudging.

20131225-145445.jpg

Very packed bristle! I can already feel my lash is gonna be very dramatic!

Below are my lashes without any mascara!

20131225-145507.jpg

20131225-145516.jpg

I kinda like my lashes at times.. geez! >_< They’re very .. erm.. dense? LOL

So after applying the Zoom Lash below is how it looks like!

20131225-145527.jpg

20131225-145535.jpg

It’s more defined and looks darker!

20131225-145614.jpg

Not sure if it’s my imagination, it seems to have lengthened my lash a little!

20131225-145856.jpg

So the above pic with my eyes closed is a comparison for you to see “before/after” effect. Can you tell which has mascara on?

Ans: My left eye (which is the eye on the right that you’re looking at now). Kinda obvious~

20131225-145906.jpg

Another thing.. this mascara doesn’t feel very clumpy and its easy to achieve the volumized look. Use a lash curler before applying mascara so that your lashes will stay curled for a longer time..

I wore this mascara since noon till midnight (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) and it shows no sign of smudging! No gothic look at all~ hahah! Waterproof? OF COURSE!! Removing is not hard at all tooooo….

S$29 (approximately) for a mascara like this? WHY NOT!!

20131225-150007.jpg

Time to remove your makeup after party? Try this M.A.C. Pro Eye Makeup Remover!

A mega-effective remover that lifts off every look – from delicate to dramatic – without smudges, tears or aggression. Pro-quality, yet decidedly gentle; calms, hydrates and soothes skin with cucumber extract. Makeup can be immediately reapplied. A favourite of busy models. I forgot that I have this in my stash thus didn’t use it to remove my zoom lash when I got home! Darn! I will review this again (if I remember) when I start using it!

Done with the eye? Now let’s check out something for our lips!!

20131225-150128.jpg 20131225-150144.jpg

Lip Gloss from Bobby Brown! YOU KNOW WHAT, I am allergic to BB’s product! T_T oh man!! I will get rashes if I apply anything on my skin. My lips will feel mild numbness when I apply lip color on my lips.. The more you love the more you can’t get to use it.. *sobs* (I’m not trying to scare you.. oops!)

This color seems a bit shimmerish neutral/natural brown color. I thought it will make my lips look dark.. but…….

20131225-150159.jpg

It really look very natural on my lips!

*I’m risking my “life” to put this on just to show you the result okay!!* hee.. >_<

20131225-151409.jpg

20131225-151423.jpg

You can see my chapped lips looks fine after I applied the lip gloss! Totally good cover up! WAHAHAHAHA… too bad I’m allergic to BB! aww.. Don’t reminds me of that…

NEXT NEXT NEXT~~~

20131225-151529.jpg

The oil-free moisture “drink” developed by Clinique’s dermatologists to maintain optimal moisture balance for skins comfortable in the cheeks but oily in the T-zone or oily all over. Oil-free formula softens, smooths, improves.

This comes in a travel size if you have noticed in the first two pic.. guess I can keep this for my upcoming getaway!

20131225-151446.jpg 20131225-151508.jpg

OK, this is totally awesome… Been hearing soooo much hoo-ha about it and finally my chance to get my hands on it!

20131225-151515.jpg 20131225-151522.jpg

This cream is really solid cream.. hahaha… It’s not those light weight runny kinda moisturizer.. It’s more like Hazeline Snow cream kinda texture but better of course! Even it’s price is…. as HIGH-END as the product itself.. make a guess?? Or perhaps you already know.. 1oz for $155! 16.5oz for *drumroll* $1900!!

-faint- I must appreciate this 0.11oz I’ve got here..

20131225-151540.jpg

Next up is something I’ve been wanting to try. DKNY Be Delicious Skin, I call it “green apple”! One of my friend been using this since I don’t know went…

The scent is not as sour as green apple please! It’s a sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.

Now, save the best for last??? HAHAHA! Now, finally something for my beau to share!!

20131225-151557.jpg
