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..

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!!!

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.. ❤

= | BB CREAM | =

20140526-153125-55885784.jpg

What I like about it: Gives a dewy look & made my complexion looks really brightened!

What I don’t like about it: It can’t withstand the humid weather in Singapore and I look really CUI (ugly – makeup turned cakey over the forehead/nose/chin) by the time I reached office.

Remedy: Use it only on non-working day, like going on a date? *heartz*

Ettusais BB Cream

20140410-170237.jpg

What I don’t like about it: Probably not the latest technology already..

Remedy: They gonna improvised it?

= | FOUNDATION | =

Covermark Creamy Liquid Foundation

covermark

What I like about it: It cover marks and look very natural! Thin layer of foundation is all you need to flawless good skin look! Another point worth mentioning, this foundation sure can withstand hot sun! I wear it to work everyday and still looks good end of the day! FYI, my journey to office is often exhuasting~ T_T Up the slope.. Long walk.. Hot sun.. Yes, regular BB cream will just melt and make me look disgusting but this creamy liquid foundation stay totally cool!!

What I don’t like about it: Not at this moment..

Remedy: N/A

SKII Cream Foundation

IMG_0707 IMG_0708

What I like about it: You just need a lil dot to look flawless and a lil more on pigment are for excellent coverage..! Not only I look good almost the whole day with this foundation, my T-zone are well controlled (in terms of oiliness) too!! *whistle*

What I don’t like about it: The way this foundation is packed, I feel it’s not very hygienic and quality of the foundation may be affected as we open and close the lid too many time. 😦 Plus, it’s SUPER expensive loh..

Remedy: Hygiene wise, use a spatula? Cost wise, save up to buy..!! It’s worth the cents!

= | EYELINER | =

SaSa Beauty Lookbook Issue 1

 

I’m waiting for this moment to show you…….

*DRUMROLL*

KrazySasa

 

Are you PSY-CHED!?

Yes.. Remember in my previous post I mentioned about some campaign SampleStore has with SaSa Singapore? Well… It’s actually a joint collaboration between the two for SaSa Beauty Lookbook. I’m glad (more than glad!!) that I have the honor to share one of my nail art tutorial on their first issue!!

That post was posted in Facebook by SaSa SG in March. By now I think the Beauty Lookbook Issue 1 should have been out of stock already? Who will be kind enough to tell which SaSa outlet still have it!!? I wanna grab a copy too!!!

Anyway, below is a bigger image of the article.. Hope you like this humble design too!

My stash of… Mascara!

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.

20131104-234840.jpg

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!

20131106-114814.jpg

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~!

“Last” Vanity Trove

Yo yo yo yo~~~ GOOD MORNING everybody! It’s really early now – like 5am?? Hahaha..! By the time I finish writing this post it should be….. 9am already! Anyway, that doesn’t matter… Today I’m gonna share with you what I rec’d in my last Vanity Trove!

Unknowingly I had subscribed VT for a year plus.. Wow how time flies! They have been introducing many new product to me and never fails to surprise mi (in good and bad way. Lol..)

But after they changed their concept, I feel that the surprise is not there anymore and $25 for samples sounds really expensive now.. 😦 none the least, I’ve made it all worthwhile in this trove!
20130809-052511.jpg
Seee!! These are the items I had selected! They arrived in the morning via Ta-Q-Bin courier just before I head out for my long weekend staycation!! Yahoooo!
20130809-052727.jpg
This is the Go60 mask that I had tried in previous trove and I find it AMAZING!!! It made my skin ultra smooth and ultimate hydrating!! I feel so wonderful after using it! The smoothness it give is by far the best among all the mask I had use!!! I can’t find much product details online yet but seriously I think u should really try this too if you have the chance!! This is one mask you cannot missed!! Read HERE for more info from my previous post!
20130809-053039.jpg
20130809-053046.jpg
It’s so good that I even clicked to get for other type of Go60 mask!!! It’s definitely not a waste of credit to get these mask!! *thumbs up*
20130809-053328.jpg
Next up, makeup remover!!! Do you know why I’m so HAPPY to see my trove arrive before I head out for my staycation!? That is because, I can bring along my travel size makeup remover and no need to buy one from Watsons!

In my previous trove, I had rec’d Avancé remover before I find them very effective! It works over my expectation! The retail price is about S$28 something at BHG, little costly because the size ain’t very big not even sure if that bottle can last me a month.. 😦 BUT it’s really good you see… You can check out my previous post HERE for more information..

As for Silkygirl’s remover (I brought along for my staycation), I tried it last night and I feel it’s not as effective as Avancé or even Bioderm.. Yes, it does remove my makeup but I keep feeling its not clean enough because I dun see much “brown stain”(bb cream) on my cotton pad and not a lot of eyeliner found too.. Wonder is my face really clean..
20130809-054955.jpg
Guess what’s this!!? Hahaha… It’s sooo cute!!! Nope! Not eye shadow.. Nope! Not blush color.. Definitely not compact powder.. More guess??
20130809-055040.jpg
Did anyone say lip gloss??? Hahah!! Yes it is!! Comes in 3 color and they not only they look sweet they smell so sweet too!!! So regret I didn’t bring along for my staycation.. Awwww..
20130809-055328.jpg
20130809-061236.jpg
Next, mascara from Cyber Colors! If I’m not wrong Cyber Colors is exclusively available only at Sasa.. I’ve been using Cyber Colors blusher and they are quite within my expectation.. Only thing is there will be quite a fair bit of wastage as the powder is pretty loose.. I tried their mascara before (not this one) and they’re pretty good..So for this I’m quite sure they won’t fail me…

And.. My goodness, I didn’t expect it to come in full size.. LOLX! What a bargain!! HAHAHAHA….

Alright, now last but not least…
20130809-060433.jpg
The fruity tea that I mentioned before that I will show you in one of my post!! I seriously didn’t expect it here!!! Hahaha… This taste much better than kilo off tea!!!

Seriously, it’s sad to bid goodbye but… We must always move fwd! For the sake of my pocket, I have to stop what I have to stop.. Moreover, seems like there are more and more kinds of sample box being introduced and their selling point? They are FREEE!! But free stuff comes with cons.. The down side is that they are bi-monthly boxes and the products they give I believe won’t be comparable to VT (paying box).. But who cares as long as I get my surprise!!
