Who doesn’t know about Biore!? Biore is probably one of the most popular known brand when you mention sun protection/makeup remover.

Next item is from Kao too, it’s MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask. It relieve and relax your hardworking eyes! Treat your eyes to a steam bath, soothing them to a comfortable and relaxed state.

If you’re not used to having something covering your eyes while u sleep, you might not like this. In my opinion, you just have to get used to it and you’ll love how it relax your eyes, especially the lavender scent! I fall asleep almost immediately (or am i too tired?).

S-Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Acetyl Hyaluronate as a moisturizing ingredient) – An ingredient with superior moisture retention that keeps the hair well-hydrated.

Evening Primrose Oil and Arginine – LUMINOFORCE imparts gloss by repairing the hair inside and out.

Evening Primrose Oil: Imparts gloss by protecting the hair surface.
Arginine: Repairs melanin holes found inside the hair to control the scattering of light and enhance the luster from within.

Fragrance “ORCHARD BREEZE” – A refreshing, soothing fragrance inspired by an orchard breeze, featuring a floral fruity note. It is a fresh and juicy fruit fragrance imbued with the gorgeous and natural aroma of the noble rose.

Intensively repairs damaged hair to keep a suppleness and shine that complement the beauty of color-treated hair.

Just use once or twice a week. After shampooing, gently remove excess water. Take an appropriate amount of the Mask and work through the entire hair. Leave for 3-5 minutes, and rinse thoroughly.

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 | =

Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control

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 like about it: Matt look that last! Good oil control and give pretty decent coverage!

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 | =

My stash of… Lipcolors! (Part 2)

Yeah!! Here’s a PART 2!! I find that too much product in one post may not be a good idea! It’s like the post is never gonna end!! Hence I decided to split my lipcolor stash post into 2 (or maybe 3, 4, 5 moving forward)…

You can still check out 1st part of my lip stash HERE..

Update 10 Jan 2015: So new year new start and here’s my NEW lip color!! Peri Pera Tint Glow Stick ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ Bought Peri Pera Tint Glow Stick on Qoo10 after testing it at one of the departmental store.. LOL!! (Don’t tell me you don’t do that!!) Bought this pinkish tint call “Magic Of Love”..

Type: Tint stick

IMG_0533 IMG_0535 What I like: Very nice shade of pink!! color is lasting tooo!

What I don’t like: Although it’s a very pretty pink but.. 😦 breaks too easily…. SEEEEE!! Only first use and TRAGEDY!!

IMG_0537 IMG_0540

Well.. tragedy aside, I still love the color….  It’s pink (of course) and it looks sheer.. IMG_0538

How it looks: HA! Benefit of lip tint!! Look as if it’s natural pinkish lips!! It’s pretty lasting I must say~ Oh and no weird taste!! LOL.. Other than it breaks easily, I think it’s pretty nice lip tint color!! What do you think?? IMG_4237 IMG_4240

Marc Jacobs Beauty – Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyls ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ – Kissability

Type: Lip gloss

What I like: NUDE with shimmer is too awesome!! Not only its a great nude shade it has this menthol sensation on your lips when u apply it!

IMG_0159

What I don’t like: Can’t really see the shimmer when applied i suppose .. but that’s not any big issue to me.

IMG_4361 IMG_4362

How it looks: This lip gloss not only look shiny, it give my lips a little tingle that lasted quite a while. Pretty cool without having plump lips!! Another thing you can’t see from the picture is that it smell nice too..!

Laneige Two Tone Lipbar ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ – Red Blossom

Type: Lip stick

IMG_2594 IMG_2595

What I like: Well, it looks very similar to VDL’s triple shot BUT Laneige lip bar are more pigmented and they have more variety of colors!

lipbar3

Yup, from what you see above, they have 12 shades! From nude to cute to sexy! The color I chose (I think is red blossom if I didn’t remember wrongly) is more to a natural shade.. Although it does looks very redish brown on its own but when you apply, okie la, not that scary.. (okie, maybe not very obvious here.. will try another shot another day!)

What i don’t like: You need a lil practice to get the shade on your lips correctly.

lipbar1 lipbar2

How it looks: Above is just one thin layer of red Blossom and below is more opaque one..

IMG_5175 IMG_5174

Sui bo (Nice not)?? LOL!! It’s pretty natural and blends pretty well!! I think I will get more colors then show them to you on another post!! Stay tune!

Secret Key Sweet Glam Tint Glow ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

I bought this on Qoo10 about 3 months ago. I didn’t buy this because I read reviews or gotten any recommendation.. It was an impulse buy (sh*t!).. However, it turns out a pleasure purchase!

Type: Tint bar

What I like: Because it was on sale! It was a 1+1+free gift (eyeliner) offer on Qoo10 that’s why I decided to add Juicy Orange and Chic Burgundy to cart!!

glowtint

See! Only S$16.50!! Super wu hua (worth it) right!!? However, promotion is often for a limited time only. Below is the latest promo they are having currently and seems to be slightly pricier too..

glowtint2

Anyway, let’s not drift too far.. Back to my lip color, Actually I like it that is very lightweight and color is so sweet!!

What I don’t like: It’s pretty expensive without the offer eh??

IMG_4375 IMG_4379

How it looks: I thought this was pretty dark shade of red and I start wondering if I will even use it.. (sh*t)! I tried it on and looks like it’s pretty decent!

IMG_4363 IMG_4364

Kinda like the color and if you’re thinking what I’m thinking now, the answer is NO. This color is NOT the same as Peri Pera Tint Glow Stick above. This tint color is closer to red whereas and Peri Pera is more pinkish..

If you’re looking for something more long lasting, I would recommend Peri Pera’s though.. It won’t last you one whole day, but at least I can still see some color after half a day..

Secret Key Sweet Glam Tint Glow ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿  – JUICY ORANGE

Type: Tint bar

What I like: Light weight lip color and did i mention, it’s quite moisturising.IMG_4378

What I don’t like: Color is too light, perhaps?


Top image showing u half-half comparison!

IMG_4421 IMG_4422

How it look: It doesn’t seems to appear visible?? It just looks like a lip balm. Or was I too used to pink lips?? As compared, I think Chic Burgundy stands out more..

Berrisom Lip Tint Pack ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

Type: Tint Tattoo

What I like: it’s really long lasting and NO touch up required even after lunch!!Yes, Berrisom Lip Tint Pack is a 12 hour long lasting lip tattoo! Doesn’t smudge! Doesn’t stain your teeth!

berrisom1

What I don’t like: You have to apply carefully else your lips may look outta shape! Plus, you need to wait for 5-10 mins for the tint to dry before you and peel it off and have the long lasting tattoo color on.

 

IMG_4380

How it looks: It’s like fresh blood, with perfume one.. It may look runny here but it’s quite sticky when applied on lips..Kinda difficult to glide through at one go nicely..

IMG_4423

Peel off when it’s dry and ta-daaaa….

See the color??! It really stays leh!! I’m pretty amazed!

IMG_4432 IMG_4433

Final result is AWESOME!!! I have natural healthy looking red lip! Do check out my separate post on Berrisom Lip Tint Pack HERE!!

Son & Park Lip Crayon ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿  – Sugar Tint

Type: Tint bar

IMG_6910

What I like: Light weight lip color, awesome rose scent! It is not sticky and application is really smooth!

What I don’t like: NOTHING! This is my new love!!!

IMG_6985 IMG_6986 IMG_6987

How it looks: After application, give it few seconds and you will see the color starts to change. Now your lips look soft and kissable!!!

Peri Pera Lip Tint Gloss ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿  – Sweet Cherry

Type: Lip tint

IMG_1601 IMG_1602

What I like: Super Opaque! Easy to apply and color is really sweet looking!

What I don’t like: The tint is lil too runny and gotta be careful when handling so as not to drop it and stained our clothes.

IMG_1600

Yes, above is one swipe across! Nice hot pink ya?

IMG_1599 IMG_1598

How it look: I receive compliment when wearing this color! However, it’s really too bright for my liking. Hence I will always apply as usual and then use tissue to dab off a  bit color..

My stash of… Lipcolors!

20131103-235357.jpg

After a LOOONG wait! Here comes the post on my stash of lip colors!!! Some of my favorites are listed tooo!! Man! Can’t wait to share with you!!!

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!

20131103-235357.jpg

You got it right!! Time again for my stash review – my stash is growing day by day!!!!

Today I’m gonna run through my stash of BB creamsss!! You may see CC cream or foundation appearing too though.. LOL!

First in the list is none other than Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion! If you are a regular beauty boxes subscriber you will not be a stranger to this great products! Most beauty subscription boxes recommend this to their users!! I happen to be one of the many who got the chance to try them and fall in love with it after trying! Love it even more after being advise by a makeup artist on how to use it to cover blemishes during my SWW shoot~!!

20140410-151046.jpg 20140410-151056.jpg

(from the second pic you can see I have been using it very diligently huh~ HAHA!!)

A new-concept cushion-type whitening BB for 6 effects (Whitening + Moisturizing + Sunscreen + Water resistant + Soothing + Makeup Effects)! Yes, 6-in-1, used to be just 5-in-1 i think!! I’m not too sure which version I’m using because I bought it on Qoo10 and they shipped direct from Korea. Packaging is different from Singapore Laneige before the change.

Nonetheless, they are still as good! I’m already using my 2nd refill.. 😀

20140409-104335.jpg

Here you can see, the side with Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion is slightly fairer and my freckles has lightened quite a bit!! I feel that is has brighten my chubby face yet doesn’t look too ghostly! Can’t see the diff?? Try comparing the eye area and freckles.. 🙂

Some user may find the coverage not that fantastic but I find it great! The trick (advised by Eric Tan, the MUA) to get better coverage is to DAP. Dap on area where you want better coverage (ie: freckles)! That’s all~ It doesn’t turn cakey It doesn’t look oily after half a day. It has SPF50 PA++. Gives a dewy look. What more can I ask for…?

And not long ago, Laneige launch their NEW BB Cushion Pore Control! I tell you…  This is AWESOME! Not only it gives a better coverage, it minimize pores!!

20140526-153125-55885784.jpg

20140526-153126-55886792.jpg

I don’t have the image of it on my face (YET) but you can click HERE to check out my post about it~!

These BB cushion is good for going on date, going to work, going shopping or even going for tea (coffee if you like it!)!! That natural dewy look~! I can’t resist!!

Yay or Nay?? Definitely a BIG YAY for me!! I love how I look when i just put it on! Even after a day at work, I still look decent! Oxidization doesn’t really ruin the look.. If you’re keen to try, probably you can head down to any Laneige boutique to take a look!

20140326-233736.jpg 20140326-233740.jpg

20140409-104311.jpg

I agree this image may not be the best to show you how good this product is BUT fred not! Check out my previous post HERE and you will see it actually has got good coverage and totally suit Asian skin too! I love the natural finish it gives and yet works like wonder when covering blemished!!

($$$: S$49.90 for 30ml)

Ok, now for my all-time favorite! .. wait.. I mean above mentioned are my favorite too!! This is probably the pioneer among the other BB cream in my favorite list! Ettusai’s BB Mineral Cream is the first to be added to my favorite list before exploring any others..

ettusais bb cream 1 ettusais bb cream 2

It’s a BB cream that gives you coverage while treating your skin at the same time. Love it because it covers, spreads easily and is so lightweight yet it works hard to keep to your skin baby soft. Made up of 79% skincare ingredients, Ettusais first BB Cream hides pores, evens out skin tone and controls oil. It also contains 6 different kinds of moisturizing ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, while also preventing acne with our star ingredient, AC-Control Oil. Contains SPF 30 PA ++.

20140418-232720.jpg

And I totally agree with what was stated! The color of the BB cream is suitable for Asian skin and it stays matte even after lunch time! It blends really well with my complexion, good coverage(!), oil control(!) and even out skin tone!

Not long after, Ettusais launch the whitening version – BB Mineral WhiteAn all-in-one makeup base, concealer and foundation in cream form that gives coverage and brightens skin by 120%!

20140410-170237.jpg

Made up of 63% skincare ingredients, this BB cream conceals and corrects skin imperfections. Skin is illuminated by 120% with its Pure-white Brightening Powder, adding a glow and radiance to your complexion! Protects skin from harmful sun rays with high SPF 45 PA ++. 

20140411-094207.jpg

IMO, this is too fair for me. I don’t know if it is suppose to be like this or I bought the wrong color (too light)~ Either one, I still prefer the BB Mineral Cream (pink tube) than this BB Mineral White (white tube). Anyway, I saw on Instagram that Ettusais is gona launch a new bb cream soon has launch another new bb cream.. gel type! Definitely looking forward to to using that soon…!! *excited*

BB Mineral Cream – S$38.00 for 40g

BB Mineral White – S$40.00 for 40g

Next BB cream is one great thing for girls who wana cover pores!

It contain:

  • Lime tree water and Cabbage extracts that are excellent in sebum control.
  • Sebucontrol – 5 controls excessive sebum and enlarged pores. 
  • Rose hip oil and Lemon balm extracts moisturizes and nourishes skin.
  • 5-free (Alcohol-free, Mineral oil-free, GMO-free, Benzophenone-free, Tar colorant-free).
  • SPF 35 PA++

20140411-093120.jpg

I thought it was pretty greyish at first but as I apply I think it kinda neutralized and blends with my complexion. On pigmented area, you just need an extra touch to cover them and you’re good! Coverage is good in this case (with that extra touch)..

20140411-094212.jpg

Although the pics I am showing you in this post are mainly a half face application but you can always use your hand to cover the other half that you don’t want to see!!! hahahaha.. Like that, you will be able to visualize the effect better.

20140411-093227.jpg

Perfect Pore Cover is what this BB Cream is named. So it should cover pores right? Do you think it did its job?? Me? I think it did a great job! My complexion looks smoother eh! flawless?? O_O hahaha.. ($$$: S$29 for 45ml)

Next in line that caught me by surprise is Touch in SOL Pure Dew Water Drop BB Cream!! This BB cream is safe to use on sensitive and trouble skin with SKIN FILM SYSTEM for the excellent calming skin! Not only that, it’s long lasting from sweat and water for all day long.

Water radiance textures, bright color and excellent coverage for skin flaw but also features gorgeous skin radiance through water holding system. Sun protection? Of course!! This bb cream comes with SPF 36!!

20140418-232614.jpg

The texture of this bb cream is sooo.. watery yet not runny. creamy yet not sticky!! Very lightweight BB cream..

20140418-232714.jpg

You can really feel the moisturizing agent on your skin and it looks very natural too!

20140412-130107.jpg

Man.. Although BB cream are getting “outdated” but I’m still loving them so much!! Recently I redeemed Dr.Jart+ Dis-A-Pore BB cream on SampleStore and I thought it might just be another so-so product..

drjart

Ya, you can tell I ain’t prepared to showcase this right!? It perform better than expected and I thought I should make a note!

IMG_8077

Well, the coverage isn’t very good but it can cover pores better than regular bb. oh wait! that’s not the reason i’m attracted to it! I like it because after a day at work, my bb cream is still covering my pores and looking fresh! If you’re keen to cover some pores, quickly head to SampleStore now to redeem the sample sachet before it goes out of stock!! Retail price is about S$44 (40ml) and available for your purchase at SaSa and Guardian if I’m not wrong..

So far these are the few BB creams that I’m pretty satisfied with.. I will be updating this post periodically when I find a good BB/CC cream to share!!

So stay tune!!

The Little Black Beauty Box X Tangs !!

Are you aware that The Little Black Beauty Box has changed partner?

Yup, it’s no more Robinson but Tangs! Oh well, to me, as long as it continue to bring in new/interesting/amazing samples for its subscribers, I don’t really care who’s the partner. Of course, the price must be justifiable! LOL..

So today, I proudly presents my first Tangs x LBBB ! Quite happy with my new LBBB!

20140622-131215-47535720.jpg

But before i go further, I have to apologise!! All images that you are gonna see here, the color is a bit “cool”.. It looks totally fine on my cam but somehow when I transferred them to my iPhone and upload them here.. hmm… colour runs?

Anyway, I had tried my best to adjust the color to as true as possible but.. oh well.. bear with it!

20140622-131216-47536205.jpg

Ain’t you excited to seeeee so many goodies in a lil box like this!? Looks like they have hunt for variety of samples for us.. From skin care to hair care to makeup to fragrance! Wow~ How thoughtful!

I will not be going through every single item in my box but still I will show you picture of it..

First thing that caught my attention is….  BELIF! For the first time I actually see one sample box includes a decent travel size of Belif product! Best part, this is the cleanser that I would usually get when I wanted Belif!

20140627-145148-53508746.jpg

This cleansing foam uses a foaming action to softly wash away impurities from your skin. Formulated with Soapwort, Sweet Flag and Wormwood to remove toxins, this cleansing foam produces clean skin without dryness after washing.

Soapwort, rich with vitamin C and natural foaming agents, cleanses the skin gently. It has been used instead of soap for centuries. Sweet Flag, has appealed to women for generations, is known to make hair and skin beautiful, silky and smooth. Wormwood, possesses breakout-prevention properties and excels at removing toxins.

The other 2 Belif products are sachet masks pack..

20140622-131349-47629158.jpg

The next item here I think there’s no need to further explained! It’s so popular even my mom knows about it.. Yup, It’s Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX..

Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Total V Contouring Serum

20140627-145149-53509705.jpg

This is better than the face lifting cream from Bioessence, IMO.. This doesn’t give me a TIGHT feeling and doesn’t feel heavy for my skin.. Most importantly, you can see result!

Guerlain Foundation

20140622-131518-47718339.jpg

Guerlain invents the most perfect second skin: Lingerie de Peau. This intangible foundation becomes one with the skin like a second sensual covering to make it more beautiful than ever. Its secret: the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibres and natural linen and silk fibres in complete affinity with the skin. The foundation glides on like a silk stocking. The “little nothing” becomes everything…

20140622-131518-47718833.jpg

Sublimely transparent, the complexion becomes as soft and radiant as silk. The curves of the face are tightened and imperfections are erased. The nine shades of the range are so skin-fusing and natural that they leave no visible colour on the face, simply a glowing, long-wearing tone that leaves the skin looking natural. Regular size Lingerie de Peau is about 30ml pump bottle and has SPF 20 – PA+. Though not the strongest sun protection but better than nothing!

20140622-131519-47719358.jpg

20140622-131519-47719815.jpg 20140622-131520-47720256.jpg

Overall, looks quite natural on my skin and doesn’t feels very thick.. Shall update here again when I tried them out on my face some day!

I’ve got an exactly the same kit from one of the sample box previously.. Haven’t got the chance to use so can’t comment much about it too.. LOL!

20140622-131522-47722403.jpg

To end this post, here’s a quick look of the LBBB voucehers! Some of it are quite worthy leh!

July LBBB!

Laneige Pore Control Collection!!

*HUGZ!!!*

How long have we not “met” ?? TWO WEEKS (more than that I believe)!! I have not been very active for two weeks!! Why? Because I’ve been busy with my new role in a new company and still trying to adapt to the new culture. (O_o) Fast pace company is no joke man!

Why again (am I here today)? Because I’ve bought something really interesting online and I think very soon (or already) it will be available in Singapore!! It has got me so excited that I decided to do a post for it! Trust me, you will be excited about it tooo~!! S much talking and I haven’t tell you what is it ya??

20140526-153125-55885422.jpg

It’s this – Pore Control BB Cushion + Brush Pact!! Wow wow wow!! Finally something (makeup) for pore control from Laneige!

BB PC_01

If you are aware, BB Cushion isnt any new product line from Laneige. They have previously launched Snow BB Soothing Cushion then they improved it to BB Cushion and now, BB Cushion Pore Control!!  \ ( ^ _ ^ ) /

BB PC_04

BB Cushion Pore Control has a light blue cover casing, other than that, outer appearance is almost the same! Their tailor-made puff & refills are available too!!

20140526-153125-55885784.jpg 20140526-153126-55886111.jpg

I did a little comparison between the two (BB Cushion & BB Cushion Pore Control). Basically, nothing much have change.

BB PC_02

Both type still provides:

  • Sun protection of SPF50 PA+++
  • Water resistance
  • Soothing effect

The difference?

BB Cushion BB Cushion Pore Control
Brightening Pore Control
Moisturizing Pore Coverage
Natural & Clean Coverage Semi-Matte Finish

Wonder if they will have a color tone for you?? Of course they have!! See~~!!

BB PC_03

5 color tone to choose from! No matter fair or tanned, confirm got one color suitable for u! FYI, I’m currently using #21 as that’s the darkest tone available by one of the seller on Qoo10.. it look a lil fair initially (prolly like over brighten yet not to the extend like you seen a ghost) but as it oxidize, it looks quite blend with my tone..

A lil test to see the color tone? Alright, here.. My hand has got all this “lil freckles” and I must admit, its coverage power is AWESOME!!

20140526-153126-55886792.jpg

See the right pic, now u know why i say it’s too fair for me? Hahaha! Aren’t u amazed with its coverage (I give it 4 star so that there will be room for improvement!!)!? Just gently pat and the coverage is so amazing already! The normal BB Cushion, you might have to tap a lil more on pigmented area to give it an extra coverage..

Next, something that is not available in Singapore yet, I guess! The Brush Pact!

BP01

(image from Qoo10 seller whom I purchase my brush pact from)

It comes in 3 “color”.. (#1) Natural Finishing, (#2) Pore Blur & (#3) Pink Beam. I bought the Pore Blur hoping it will cover my large pores..

20140526-153126-55886437.jpg 20140526-153126-55886659.jpg

The brush is very soft!! I like it.. You don’t ned a lot of powder to cover your pores. Just gently brush them across and you’re good!

BP02

Below is another image where I put on the products on my hand..

20140526-153126-55886860.jpg

Now you can see, what it means by semi-matte ya? Comparing both pic, the one on the left is “glossier” (with BB Cushion Pore Control only) whereas the one on the right is matte (with BB Cushion Pore Control + Brush Pact).

Not only matte, my skin color has been a tone darker now.. No more ghostly white face with beige neck before leaving home! LOL~

Now if you’re interested in this product, check out Pretty Shop! I purchased both items from them! Fast delivery and some sample sachets as free gift for buyer!

LBBB A New Beginnning

This is a SUPER LATE post!!! I kept it in my draft and happily forgot about it until now!! Goshhh….

Now here’s my January Little Black Beauty Box! I’m actually not that excited already when I opened up the box. I think this is not the first time they throw in perfume samples to fill the box (at least that’s what I feel – using perfume sample to fill the box)..

20140117-182909.jpg

Okay, let’s start with Shiseido first.. We have a couple of samples from Shiseido..20140117-182921.jpg

The White Lucent Power Brightening Mask. An original brightening mask inspired by iontophoresis, a beauty treatment that saturates skin with a generous amount of brightening ingredients. Through the power of Ion Force Technology, the brightening ingredients are absorbed deep within the skin for highly effective results. Remove the mask and see your skin refreshed, bright and even toned.

The unique shape of our mask is the result of a long and meticulous design process that led to its simple and effective form. Made with highly elastic new materials, it fits any face perfectly, allowing the formula to reach deeply into every part of the skin.

I had used this mask and erm.. the brightening effect.. I guess I need more to see the effect.. LOL..

20140117-182928.jpg

White Lucent Total Brightening Serum. The ultimate brightening solution for even-toned skin with perfect radiance. A brightening serum that combines Shiseido’s advanced brightening technologies to achieve ultimately bright skin. Shiseido’s exclusive new complex, ProBright 4MRtm, has been developed based on the latest research for a superior combined effect* of overall brightening, and flawless, perfectly radiant skin.
The light, dewy texture absorbs quickly from the skin surface to deep within.

It refines the skin surface for a lustrous look. Provides generous moisture, for optimum clarity. Prevents and diminishes visible dark spots, for spotless skin.

Next up, Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion!

20140117-182936.jpg

Laneige has always been one of my favourite brands! Not only their skincare range is hydrating enough.. I like their packaging too!

This is not my first time using Snow BB Soothing Cushion (You can check my my previous post HERE). In fact I have a full size one in my makeup pouch!

20140117-182943.jpg

Something from Kose. It’s the Sun Protect Gel, in short, sunblock.

This gel block out UV rays and lock in moisture with SEKKISEI Sun Protect Gel’s new “ultrathin cohesive veil” formula.

  • Sun protect gel made with oriental plant extracts that creates smooth and translucent skin by preventing spots and freckles caused by sunburn.
  • Thin and soft “ultrathin cohesive veil” locks moisture inside of skin for long hours, while protecting it from UV rays.
  • SPF50/PA+++ thoroughly blocks UV-A which causes damage to plumpness of skin, and UV-B which causes sunburn.
  • Can be used as makeup base. Tones skin, and enhances and supports application and lasting effect of foundation.

20140117-182952.jpg

 

I don’t know how comfortable this will be but that’s what written on it. Nuse Ultra Comfortable Face Cream. This nourishing cream with its delicious, creamy texture, replenishes, soothes, repairs and protects the skin from external aggression. A delicious treat for pampered skin all day long.

The skin is intensely nourished (91%*) and its comfort is restored (86%*). Sensations of discomfort and tightness are reduced (91%*).
*Use test carried out under dermatological supervision over 28 days of application on 21 volunteers  % of volunteers who agreed with the claim.

Next are all about perfume whereby I will just skipped them.

20140117-183001.jpg

20140117-183011.jpg

20140117-183016.jpg

Ok, this is something new to me. Or rather it’s my first time using this brand. Holika Holika.20140117-183053.jpg

This is a pot of eye shadow. It will tightly attached on skin and maintains clear makeup all day. It also creates light and clear shimmering with brush.

How to use?? Apply a proper amount with brush or with your finger tips.

20140117-183100.jpg

It comes with a safety seal so that the powder will not “leak”.

20140117-183107.jpg

If you have notice, It doesn’t comes in a powdery form but instead they are like little balls.

20140117-183121.jpg

20140117-183149.jpg

20140117-183156.jpg

Looks not bad on hand ya!?? Let’s see how it look on my eye…20140117-183217.jpg

hmm .. pretty light.20140117-183227.jpg

*dapped more*

Still look light…

20140117-183234.jpg

NOW, this is too much! LOL… I did this on purpose just to show you that you have to blend well if you are using ur fingers. If not the chunks of ball will just be unevenly spread out.

20140117-183254.jpg

And yup, this is the amount of perfume samples I have in my drawers… ! LOL! I should be able to finish them before they turn yollow… =X
