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

(suppose to be pink tube, not this white one)

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..

Marc Jacob Skyliner

This is a super duper over due post…! I meant to post this shortly after Christmas but….. too much “to-do” item in my list that I need to complete before this. My bad!

After my office moved, everyday seems to be a tired day after work!! There was once I tried to take a bus home instead of MRT, I tell you, IT WAS TOTAL MADNESS!!! It took me 2 hours to reach home!!! 1hr 30 mins on the bus and 15 min on MRT!!! Never do impromptu action without checking…. Seriously!! Longest bus ride I ever had! -faint- On the bright side, at least I reached home before bed time..

After a month plus of blog-break, I realize my page view has dropped!! >_< Time to end my break and come back to action! First step to working hard, share this over due post with you guys first…!

The beautiful present I got last Christmas for myself!!!

IMG_1026

This is none other than my favorite makeup stash – EYELINER!! I can’t do without eyeliner!! My eyes will looks super restless and super annoying! This set of eyeliner is by MARC JACOB BEAUTY! 7 minis cost about $50+/- at Sephora’s Christmas sale!! AND it’s super duper worth every cents!!

The sleek casing.. The fun size gel pencil.. The awesome colours.. Enough to make me go crazy for it.. Not to mention, the 7 amazing colors let you match every dress in your wardrobe perfectly! Perfect for girls who always like to try different colors of eyeliner! I bet you’ll love the colors they put in this lil box too! Feel so proud having it in my bag!

Let’s take a look at the first color…. ^_^

IMG_1027

One of my favourite color is this green one – O(Vert)! It’s a shimmery khaki green..

IMG_3473 IMG_3474 IMG_3475 IMG_3476

Pretty safe tone of green, lightly soft blackened green.. I like the fact that it’s a dark color yet able to tell this is not a regular black eyeliner!

Giving you a soft yet enhanced look.. and not forgetting it does have a bit of shimmer (but unable to captured in this image, sorry!)..

Lens: Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown (Bambi Series) Review

IMG_1138

Next is the regular dark brown – Brown(Out)..Although it’s dark brown, it’s not blacken kinda brown.. or I should say it’s like chocolate brown??

IMG_2721 IMG_2722

It’s pretty natural and again, it has shimmer! woohoo!

IMG_1139

This color I’ll probably keep for my waterline because I can’t seem to bring out the beauty for light color.. “Sunset” is a frosted light brown.. I can’t help but to think that I’ll look like Son Goku if I have to put this on my upper eyelid.. =X

IMG_1140

Another favourite color – Midnight In Paris! This is almost like a teal blue or peacock blue.. And yes, you’ve guessed it! It has shimmer toooo!!

IMG_2691 IMG_2693 IMG_2692 IMG_2694

Nice right!?

Lens: Pinky Paradise’s Sample Lens!

IMG_1144

This is Th(Ink) – a shimmery navy blue. Also another favorite of mine (This collection is really a MUST HAVE for eyeliner lovers!! You will hate to missed them!!)

Below image under normal room light..

IMG_2599 IMG_2601

And here’s with flash..

IMG_2603 IMG_2604

It looks a lil purplish blue under flash but no worries because it’s still a blue under normal lighting..

Side track: If you like this lens, head over HERE to find out more.. 🙂

Before I move on… here’s another picture to show you the difference between “Midnight In Paris” and “Th(Ink)”..

IMG_2709

(With Flash)

IMG_2710

(Without Flash)

They may look similar but Midnight In Paris seems to be a darker tone of blue while Th(Ink) is looks more to purplish blue (more cheery I think)..

IMG_1146

Next up is (Plum)age! Like the name suggest, it’s a plum color – PURPLE!

IMG_3930 IMG_3929

 

I can’t really capture the beauty of this but it is a pretty cool shade of purple!

Last but not least, the all time favourite – Blacquer..

IMG_1148

This is just ………black. No shimmer, nothing.

I can’t emphasize more, this collection is really beautiful! I’m so glad I bought them at Sephora! The best Christmas gift I could every buy for myself!!

IMG_2712

IMG_1034

Besides the beautiful colors, you may want to know that these are gel eyeliner hence application so smooth and damn easy!! PLUS, all these colors are highly pigmented tooo! One (or two) stroke down and it’s as good as done.

IMG_1037

That’s not all!! Don’t forget gel-liner has this amazing feature which all girls look for…WATERPROOF!! Singapore is so hot and humid. I’m sure you would not want to look gothic after a walk along Orchard Road (It’s not Halloween yet~) on a Saturday afternoon!

Watery eye girls should be glad to have this too as your eyeliner will stay with you throughout the day not matter how you tears.. LOL..

IMG_1049

Not only I put it through the water test, I tried to rub it off using my fingers after running them in tap water.. and I must say.. I’m starting to get worried if these eyeliner will ever come off..?? *raise brow*

You see, water can’t wash it off.. fingers can’t rub it off… It’s like “oh shit!”, I don’t wanna leave it on like this forever man! >_<

IMG_1060

So then I used my Biore Micellar Water to remove (my best makeup remover already!) and result…??

IMG_1071

It did not lift up my eyeliner fully!! I had to massage in circular motion for a few seconds before they’re gone. Indeed a long lasting eyeliner!

Well, is this consider good or bad?? Hmm, at least I think the long lasting part is one of the best factor. Seldom I will see a “long lasting” makeup last. But this eyeliner did! I like the opaque (pigmented) colors it gives and the smooth application is another reason I will continue to use it too.

Side note: My BFF was commenting below during one of our dinner date and I super glad it made an impression..

“Your eyeliner doesn’t seems to smudge after a whole day ya??”

If you like it too, you can drop by Sephora to check it out..! I’m really really pleased with my purchase!!! <3<3
