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!!

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..

img_8059

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!!!

JOHN FRIEDA

This advanced formula addresses the way brunette colour fades on three colour dimensions. With daily use it helps lock in rich, glossy colour and multi-dimensional tones. Formulated with crushed pearls and sweet almond oil, this moisturising formula protects and preserves brunette colour as it rehydrates and replenishes dry hair. Suitable for all shades of colour-treated brunette hair.

This shampoo lathers up very quickly! Not sure whether it has enhanced my brunette colour hair but I still enjoy shampooing my hair John Frieda as it not only smells great, my hair feels smoother too!

L’Oréal EXTRAORDINARY OIL

NylonVT_Loreal

Japan’s #1 Hair Treatment – Extraordinary Oil is the ultimate miracle hair oil treatment. 1 Miracle Drop, 6 Extraordinary Benefits- Nourish, Soften, Smoothen, Shine, Proetct, Strengthen. Hair is luxuriously nourished and richly protected, leaving it sumptuously smooth and brilliantly shiny with an ultra lightweight non-greasy finish. Hair color is protected against fading with exceptional nourishment.

Now with additional UV Filter – who says hair doesn’t need sunblock!! Without sun protection, you’re putting your hair at risk for faded color due to oxidation, lack of moisture, and overall distress! These short-term effects make strands look and feel dull and dehydrated, but the longer-term problem is premature hair aging (eg: hair lost – remember how thick your ponytail used to be??))!!

Distribute 2-3 pumps onto palm and apply:
1. Before shampoo and conditioner to restore, nourish and prep hair for washing
2. On towel dry/ dry hair (before blow drying) to protect hair
3. Throughout the day for continuous nourishment and shine

FOLLIZIN The Cleanser (50ml)  & FOLLIZIN The Moisturiser (50ml)

The 2 common surfactants found in shampoos – SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate ) and SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) are known to be harmful to the follicle and scalp skin. L SLES dissolves the natural oils on your skin and can denature skin proteins which not only causes irritation, but also allows environmental contaminants easier access to the lower sensitive layers of the skin. Another lesser known fact is that SLES is a direct cause of dry fuzzy and split hairs. As SLES is also absorbed into the body through the skin, it can mimic the activity of the hormone OESTROGEN in our body 2thereby contributing to hormonal imbalance which is today’s major cause of Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss.

Both Cleanser and Moisturizer are gentle yet thorough cleanser formulated for all scalp and hair types. . SLES, SLS and PARABENS FREE!

The thing that’s special about  this shampoo is that they uses:

SuGENE Technology – Breakthrough plant genetics technology that has an appropriate degree of maintaining moisture balance on both the scalp and hair through hygroscopic action. It also acts as a natural preservative.

Rose Oil – a natural astringent that protects the scalp and hair from losing moisture, it is also ideal for irritated skin. Rich in trans-retinol acids which are important for the skin’s collagen production. Provides for more elasticity and natural smoothness for both the scalp and hair.

BED HEAD TIGI HARD HEAD

Be Bold and get spiked up! Dries quickly… defies gravity. You don’t have to have a Mohawk just a serious desire for your hair to stay put!

This lil hair spray here has 5 stars support factor! Super strong hold and firm, hold spiky styles and dries quickly! Suitable for short to medium hair..

Ingredient:

  • Mica – Shine, light reflects off hair
  • Octylacrylamide Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl
  • Methacrylate Copolymer – Mega hold without weight or extreme stiffness with gloss, helps to protect hair from fading & sun damage
  • Sorbitol – Gloss & moisture retention, so hair won’t dry out

I’m getting my friend to try this out!! If it’s good, I’ll let u know!!!

Now that hair is covered, let’s head over to body care!!

IMG_1545

ADIDAS CLIMACOOL ANTI-PERSPIRANT

A unique formula featuring advanced fresh capsule technology activated by movement so that the harder you go the better it works. Anti-white marks.

If you’ve been working up a sweat lately, you know that nothing feels as great as that post-workout high. But unfortunately, that glow also has a price… which is your very own custom, post-workout “fragrance”. The answer to feeling (and smelling) fresh even after a killer spin class is an anti-perspirant deodorant that works just as hard as you do – like the athlete-tested Adidas Climacool Anti-Perspirant Spray. The advanced capsules in its formula aren’t just citrus-scented, they’re also activated by friction, sweat and humidity. When you move, the capsules break, releasing a burst of freshness so that the harder you work, the better this next-level deodorant performs. Perfect for chatting up that cute guy at the water station after your workout! – See more at: http://www.cleo.com.sg/body-awards-2015/best-long-lasting-deodorant-adidas-climacool-anti-perspirant-spray-her#sthash.FICKC76N.dpuf

ASTALIFT MOISTURE FOAM – This creamy moisture foam contains anti-oxidants – Astaxanthin and Lycopene – and hydro-soluble collagen leaving your skin fresh, radiant and luminous always. Key ingredients are Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Collagen, Damask Rose, Shea Butter & Jojoba Seed Oil!

‘ASTA’ in Japanese means tomorrow and ‘LIFT’ refers to the uplift of one’s inner emotions as beauty shines through. The result is a meaningful brand promise that offers renewed skin.

Created by FUJIFILM, ASTALIFT is an award-winning brand that offers carefully-researched skincare and supplement products with proven efficacy.

Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.

What’s more, Collagen – an important structural protein in human skin – is also the key ingredient for photographic film. FUJIFILM, harnessing its nearly 80 years of collagen research, has effectively channeled this area of expertise to ASTALIFT’s products.

FUJIFILM has also applied its proprietary knowledge of nanotechnology – for exposing and colour developing in film – to allow high concentrations of ultra-fine skin-nourishing ingredients to be delivered effectively and deeply to targeted levels of the skin, while preserving their efficacy. FUJIFILM’s strengths in image analysing technologies – gleaned from our vast experience in the photographic and medical fields – have also been used in skin tone reproduction technology to enhance one’s looks in the cosmetics field.

Inspired by skin cell research. Powered by proprietary nano technology.

Kosé Pure Advance Deep Clear Mask – The clay-based mask and scrub combined have a dual effect on the skin, getting rid of blackheads and unwanted dead skin cells.

IMG_1540 IMG_1537

It’s pretty easy to spread and I  absolutely LOVEEEE the srcub in this mask! It’s like forever not going to dissolve and I can just go on & on & on scrubbing..

I applied a thin layer on my face and probably less than 5 mins, it’s dry and I can feel the skin tightening! I washed of with luke warm water after that and my skin feels clean and soft! Blackhead weren’t all gone but I was able to remove quite plentiful.. 🙂

IMG_1620

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~!

20131109-021914.jpg

October Bellabox – We Are TWO!

Happy 2nd Birthday Bellabox!! Glad that I had subscribed to this month box because other then the items I don’t like, I love them ALL!!IMG_6829

Are you able to tell which are my love? Oh! Did I mention, this month’s Bellabox come in a bag. Paperbag! LOL Nah.. It a small cosmetic bag (pouch)!

IMG_6831

IMG_6813

How many of the “post card” can you recognized here? I think i only remember 3?? I was unsubscribed for a period of time.. But now I’m back!

IMG_6832

So let’s see what we have here!!!!

SANITARY PAD!! This is the first thing that I see when I opened up the paper bag!

Cosmo

This seems like a new invention? Check out HERE for their blog post.

IMG_6812

This is a very generous amount of sample!!! I can say it’s as good as a regular pack! So what’s so special about it?? WARNING: DO NOT scroll down if you had bought any lottery!

IMG_6839

After I opened them up, I can immediately feel the softness. But one thing has been bothering me… So MANY HOLES can hold our menses????? O_O Obviously you have not read the blog link that I had provided earlier!

Whisper Cosmo is made of an elastic material, and comes with a unique flexible structure for a 3D fit. Since the resilient pad is less likely to shift or bunch, there’s no need to worry about leakage. Move your body as freely as you want to. No more restrictions!

So these holes are actually the “unique flexible structure”!  Not only that, on days that you have long meeting and can’t change your pad regularly, FRED NOT!

Cosmo has three times the absorbency of regular napkins. Now you can focus on the long meetings, and forget all about the heavy-flow!

That’s not all.. The holes can do more!!

The holes in the centre section of the pad, known as micro dots, absorb flow quickly and allow it to spread evenly across the lower layer of the pad, reducing discomfort for the skin.

Well, fear that not changing your pad often will caused you skin irritation?

A unique, oil-coated non-woven fabric sheet is used for the top sheet, minimising friction for a gentler feel on the skin.

“Lactoflex” does not feel stiff or strange against your skin. Thanks to this material, Whisper Cosmo is comfortable and gentle on the skin!

Ok, now the holes seems pretty attractive.. hahah! Probably I can try it soon when my period is present!

IMG_6815

Opening up the pouch, I saw two shining tube waving at me!! Ah-Ha!! Loreal shampoo!!! Yeah!! Sulfate-free shampoo & conditioner.. I think I had a blog post about this before..Hang on!! Let me check………………………………………………

Black Box Mini – Loréal

“Postman Pat~ Postman Pat~ Postman Pat and his little black cat! black & white cat!”

(oops! i always thought is “little blackcat” until i saw this youtube video!)

Do you still remember Postman Pat? or is it only me!? 😦 (Sign of aging Number 109!) It was one of my favourite cartoon in the 90s (or was it 80s??) although i already forgotten 90% what the story is about! But what has it gotta do with my post today?? Of cause it has something to do with today’s post!! Without “POSTMAN PAT”, i won’t be receiving my mails, my parcel & … my blackbox mini!! Thanks Postman!! Kudos!!

ANYWAY, let’s not drift too far~

I’d received my Blackbox mini last week! I thought it will come in a box, small box..

20130709-232511.jpg

But it came in an envelope.. Still better than nothing! LOL… I’m thrilled when i opened the envelope!!

20130709-232520.jpg

It’s a beautiful black pouch! i believe this is the black pouch in April’s Blackbox?? So what’s in my blackbox mini??

Loréal EverSleek shampoo & conditioner! EverSleek Intense Smoothing Shampoo gently cleanses while weightlessly smoothing frizzy, unruly hair. EverSleek Intense Smoothing Conditioner smoothes and deeply conditions frizzy, unruly hair without weighdown. Both helps improve texture, and leaves hair beautifully sleek and manageable.

Frizz-Free Control – Has humidity and unruly hair got you down? The EverSleek Smoothing System tames frizz without the use of heavy silicones that make your hair feel waxy or weighed down. Instead, these light formulas infused with Argan, Sunflower and Olive oils smooth hair for 48-hours of frizz-free bliss. Stay stunningly sleek through any weather.

Lose Sulfates, Not Suds – All sulfate-free products are not created equal. Many shampoos that forego sulfates tend to be lacking in the lather department. Thanks to advanced technology, all Ever lines produce rich, luxurious foam infused with a refreshing botanical scent. Your hair—and your senses—will thank you!

I had try them before (when my hair WERE str8!) and i think they are pretty awesome! But now that i had my hair untamed perm, I feel that the “intense smooth” is not smooth enuff for me as claimed.. But i love the scent it left on my hair.. like i just when to salon for a hair wash!

Seriously with my permed hair now.. no “silky smooth” shampoo will makes it smooth anymore… i need repair and nourished!! LOL.. and cannot be lazy! Arrgg…

One Day Bazaar @ BHG

It’s time for shopping again!!!! Hahahah!! Don’t u just love to shop whole day, all year round!!?!? Man I wish I could!

Bought a few items and decided to pick 3 out of the many to share with u!! I’m not going into product knowledge or branding background today! It will be just my POV! So…. Let’s start!

I believe L’oréal is not a new brand to many of u… Most girls started their makeup life with one or two L’oréal stash ya? Today at BHG ODB sales, I whacked these two makeup base for myself…!

Lucent Magique Pure Light Primer & Base Magique Transforming Soothing Primer!

20130608-190252.jpg

Why buy 2 u asking?? Hahaha! Because I can’t decided which to settle for!! They both give different result!

20130608-190259.jpg

Lucent Magique Pure Light Primer give u a radiant face!! Like you are giving out inner shine~ hahaha! Ok, I exaggerated..!

20130608-190309.jpg

20130608-190314.jpg

As u can see the primer is white in color and it contains a little shimmer (I guess that is what makes ur face bright like they’re glowing) the primer is quite runny but slightly thicker than water.. Application was easy too!

20130608-190319.jpg

20130608-190405.jpg

Love the glow that it gives and yet not too bright! People who wants radiant, brightened and/or dewy face, this Pure Light Primer is definitely for u!

Looking at the above “with & without” comparison, very obvious that my skin glows with Lucent Magique! Hahaha… Don’t u juz love the radiance?

20130608-190426.jpg

Next here is the Base Magique Transforming Soothing Primer! This primer works great for people who wants matt complexion, less visible pores and smooth smooth face!!

It comes in a bottle, velvet cream like primer!

20130608-190432.jpg

20130608-190436.jpg

Application was a little challenging for me.. It doesn’t spread on nicely on my hand.. The cream doesn’t seem to get ‘absorb’ in and its like keep rolling on my skin.. Used double the time i use to apply pure light primer to get this done.

On the other hand, my sis like this lots! It went on perfectly on her hand when she tried the sample!! No cakey residue like I what I experience..

20130608-190446.jpg

20130608-191242.jpg

But after a while (was still doing my shopping in BHG).. I touchedy hand again and my skin feels smooth.., VERY SMOOTH!! I was like “wow! Not bad eh!?!?” It does takes a whole for the product to get used to my skin huh? (Hahaha) that is when I decided to grab a bottle tooo!!

I tried to show u the “with & without” comparison.. But doesn’t seems to show AT ALL! Hahah! FAILED! But it really smoothen my skin quite a bit! Even some wrinkles went *POOF* missing!!

20130608-191253.jpg

Putting both hands together, I think u can see difference?? Radiant vs Smoothen!! Who wins!??

Other than L’oréal primers, I had also bought Ettusias Mineral Powder!!

20130608-192539.jpg

20130608-192544.jpg

First thing I want to tell u is that…. The powder puff is really very soft!!!!!! Feels like a princess putting on powder! Hahahaa!

This mineral powder has little coverage as compared to their mineral compact powder.. As I din wana add on the weight on my face, I choose this loose powder to sort of set my makeup and gives it a matt look..

In below pic, you can see my hand with the application on powder on top of the primer that I just shared w you..

20130608-192557.jpg

Indeed very light ya? Hahaha! I can barely see the powder.. =P

After reading this post, have u decided which primer to get for yourself??
