20131103-235357.jpg

Hi Hi! Familiar with the above pic? Yes you should if u had read my previous post about (my fave) eyeliners. I had plans to share my makeup stash with you over a period of time.. this week, it’s gona be my EYE OPENING Mascara~

20131109-031229.jpg

Here’s my family of mascara! Yes, this is too much for it’s life span but who cares!! I need different effect mascara for different occasion! Don’t you?? (ehem.. just excuses to get more mascara!)

The newest wand to the mascara family is ….

Catrice Waterproof Mascara

20131109-014359.jpg

What I like: Affordable! Lashes doesn’t stick together with blink.

What I don’t like: It has nothing special.

20131106-114731.jpg

How it look: Look decent for normal days. Not much lengthening or volume effect.

20131104-234935.jpg

How did I get to know: During a one of Essence warehouse sales, I bought it to try..

Will I buy again: No.

CYBER COLORS – Ex Volume

cc

20131109-014354.jpg

What I like: Not only it give reasonable volume effect, it helps lengthen my lashes too! It doesn’t clump together easily and will not stick together when you blink.

What I don’t like: It’s not available everywhere, exclusively at SaSa. but luckily, SaSa is everywhere! LOL..

20131106-114749.jpg

How it look: The brush is unlike those “bushie” bristle but it can really gives me length & volume! It’s not sticky and it’s waterproof too! Make me look bright and alert at all time.

20131106-114806.jpg

Can see the difference from the previous mascara? I have longer lashes here and they seems to be thicker too..

Great option for dates!

20131106-114821.jpg

How did I get to know: I can’t remember, but this is probably in one those surprise box I subscribed to.

Will I buy again: Definitely will consider this when my mascara stock is running low..!

CYBER COLORS – Curl Mascara

20131109-031206.jpg

What I like: No other mascara can give the kinda of volume this mascara gives!

What I don’t like: Don’t have those bushy brush.. 😦 It looks more like a comb – Maybe that’s why it can volumized our lashes so much!

20131112-214858.jpg

How it look: After my first application, I was dumb! This “hairless bristle” gave me great volume! My eye can look bigger even without eyeliner (though below pics are with eyeliners)!

20131112-214913.jpg

Look at the volume it gave me (Sorry if it looks clumpy to you, this is my oldest mascara in my collection!!)! Although it couldn’t give me much length but I’m pretty happy with the bombastic volume already!

 

20131112-214922.jpg

How did I get to know: Window shopping kills! SaSa promoter highly recommend this wonder wand to me! I was kinda reluctant to but a hairless wand because I don’t believe it will give my what I want.. Well, guess I was wrong..

Will I buy it again: Yes if it is still available! Bought this at about S$22..

K-PALETTE – 1 Day Lash Perm!

20131109-031223.jpg

What I like: If I know I’m gonna have a long day and need to stay fresh and look alert, this is definitely my MUST USE makeup! It last you the whole day!

20131112-214737.jpg

The brush is pretty “compact” as compared to Catrice Waterproof mascara. The little curve on the brush makes application along the inner eye lash easier! Now I can have thick lashes not only on the outer end of my eye but also the inner end!

20131112-214758.jpg

Another thing I like about this mascara is that it is not sticky. When I blink, my lashes won’t keep sticking to each other and I had to open my eye extra wide to “pull them apart”!

20131112-214823.jpg

20131112-214843.jpg

What I don’t like: NOTHING!

How it look: Like what u seen above, it looks great the whole day! The super power waterproof effect is amazing! After one whole day of hard work, this mascara shows no sign of smudging at all! No gothic look! No dark eye ring! HAHAHAHA!! They stay like how they are when you first apply them!!

You must be wondering why do I keep saying about eye lash sticking together when I blink right? Because one of the L’Oreal mascara I have gave me this problem! Though it can give me curling effect but it’s too tacky. I have to open my eyes hard to not let my lashes stick together. I suppose the stickiness is what makes the mascara able to give u curling effect??

20131109-031211.jpg

Yeap, this is the one.. Curl Impact Collagene. I have no picture to show you because I seldom use this anymore as it’s too tacky & since I have got my new (& better) love, I can continue to keep this in my stash until it expires..

20131109-031217.jpg

This was the “IN-est” mascara when I bought it! It promise to give you length, volume, texture & curl! But apparently I think it only gave me texture.. Curling effect, the above mascara is better! Volumized effect, Cyber Colors did better! Lengthening? Cyber Colors did better tooo!

Overall, I think K-palette & Cyber Colors mascara are pretty worth investing!! A little more costly but definitely worth it!

Last but not least, since we’re on this topic “Mascara”, below is a quick tip i saw on FB. Hope it will be useful for you~!

Essence Private Sale! IRRESISTIBLE!

20131104-231815.jpg

Like what is says.. It’s SALE again!! The last time I went to Essence sales is also within this year (2013)…. erm no! It was LAST YEAR! Wow.. how time fly! You can read post from HERE. Essence have really good and affordable makeup products, nail polish and skin care! I’m here mainly for polishes and makeup! Glad that I made the right choice to have come by! Else, I’ll be missing everything in this bag!

20131104-231827.jpg

Guess what I’ve grabbed home.. Nail polish, yes! Lipstain, yes! Nail cavier, yes! Some others covered by polishes so I’m gona go show it to you below..

20131104-232124.jpg

LIPSTAIN

Lipstick or gloss wearing off after just one sip of water? With the pen that gives lips semi-permanent definition, a light stain and pampers them with moisturizing ingredients – the CATRICE Lip Stain! Prep your lips for all day colour by first applying a base with our CATRICE Colour Infusion Longlasting Lipstain (S$7.90). It offers the desired color infusion for our lips! Its fruity aroma lifts our spirits and is easy to apply thanks to the soft shape of the tip. Apply in several layers to intensify the color. Use waterproof remover to remove.

Make a guess how much i got it for? ………. 3 for S$10!! Best part is that I can mix and match any three items! The other two items i grabbed a lipstick and a waterproof mascara!

LIPSTICK

Like the light colour and moisturizing effect it gave my lips. Like all other lipstick, color didn’t last past lunch time but my lips managed to stay moisturized though! This was one of the 3 for S$10 item so nothing to complain!

MASCARA

Was looking for the “function” of this mascara other than being waterproof but apparently, other than waterproof, it doesn’t do anything else. LOL! I applied 2 coats of mascara and this is how it looks like.

PRIMER

Even out a blotchy or dull complexion with the CATRICE Prime and Fine Illuminating Base. Pearl shimmer pigments help cover up irregularities and brighten up your entire face. At just S$9.90 at all our counters, the Prime and Fine Illuminating Base is one of the most affordable primers on the market.

Guess what? I got it for S$4 at the sale event!! That’s more than 50% off!

I tried it yesterday and felt that it’s just so-so. Nothing fantastic but still good that I had apply a primer before my BB cream and all. It’s like an extra protection for me. There is just one thing I couldn’t stand about this primer… The scent. It smells a lil odd. For a moment i thought my EDP expired thus smelling weird but later realize it’s my primer.. arrgg.. Hence today, I had switched back to my Loreal primer.

Next up, it’s something to treat your feet!

20131104-232144.jpg

These are the only Essence product that caught my attention! The whitening nail polish and a foot protection stick!

828_10151982834481745_1030662542_n

I’m totally in love with this whitening nail polish!! It’s just one thing we (me and my girlfriend) don’t understand.. WHY only TOE NAIL?? Can’t it be used on finger nail?? We seriously don’t know why… Porbably it’s just the marketing strategy.. They want you to buy a (finger) nail polish & a TOE nail polish.. LOL!

Heck care, I applied them on my chubby fingers and I’m totally amazed by it’s whitening effect! I’m having yellow nail because of the highly pigmented polish I used recently and also partly I had them on my nails for too long. It may not have shown in the picture but it’s really clear to me that my index and middle fingers are whitened! Not only that, I have ridge nails too.. This polish helps to level my nails and now i have beautiful white levelled nails! heartz them so much!!

I have not try the foot protection stick because I don’t have any new show recently! When I get the chance to use it, I’ll just update this post again?

Just in case you are wondering, Essence show your feet foot protection stick has an innovative formulation that provides an invisible protection film onto the skin and immediately reduces the chafing from shoes, also blisters can be effectively prevented in no time at all. Now there’s no need to bite your new shoe 3 times (so that it won’t bite u – some chinese belief)!

20131104-232136.jpg

POLISHES~~~~  WOW! They have limited colors but still I manage to grab a few for this year’s Christmas pressie!! Heard from the sales person (telling another customer) saying that a bottle of polish cost S$7.90?? Wow! Can you imagine I grabbed all these at half the price!?!

Caviers.. Nude.. Pink.. Orange.. Gold.. HO HO HO! Merry Christmas!!!!

Just when I was about to check out… my instinct pulled me to the corner where all the fragrance are seating…

20131104-232206.jpg

Yes & I got tempted to bought one home! Kate Spade Twirl was the first that twirled to me (the sales lady gave me a strip of sample scent) and I got hooked! It smells … erm.. great! I don’t know how to explain the scent to you.. It’s not those floral or fruity scent.. it’s .. the scents of INDEPENDENT! LOL!!

I love sale! I hope more brands out there will have this kinda warehouse sale or private sale!! It’s a good time to whack up stocks!! hahaha!
