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

DIY Polish from Eye Shadow!

Yes, you can create your very own nail color from an old eye shadow. This is not new but it’s my first time trying it..! So I’m pretty excited ’bout it actually!! \(^_^)/

20140114-193408.jpg 20140114-193442.jpg

Here’s my unwanted eye shadow! Sorry, I started smashing them half way and realize I should take a pic of them first before they turn into powder! This eye shadow was previously from one of the sample box but because I don’t really use an eye shadow so I decided to sacrifices it!

*chop chop chop*

If you ask me, I would advise you to chop them finer! Coarse pieces might be difficult to blend them to your clear nail polish! YES, of course you need a clear polish to mix your eye shadow! Else how do you get your personalized nail polish color!?

After chopping them, smashing them, pounding them, you can get ready your clear polish and ……………

20140114-193455.jpg 20140114-193518.jpg

POUR THEM IN!

I used a unwanted plastic sheet to act as my funnel! I wouldn’t want to dirty my space with my clumsy hands – pouring eye shadow everywhere but inside the bottle! T_T

I started by pouring half the eye shadow amount and SHAKE well!

*shake shake shake*

*roll roll roll*

*drumroll*

20140114-193547.jpg

Here’s my grey polish! It looks a bit sheer but it kinda get me excited!!

20140114-193613.jpg

See!! Without my funnel, it became this mess when I pour in my 2nd half of my eye shadow.

20140114-193644.jpg 20140114-193651.jpg

Now with my whole eye shadow in the clear polish, it became more opaque!

For I-don’t-know-what reason, my nail polish turns our MATTE! hahahaha! I believe could be the “powder” that I poured in causing the texture changed. Oh well, doesn’t matter, since I can have it gloss again with my Seche Vite! V(^_^)V

20140114-193737.jpg

After looking at it for a while, I started to think it looks a bit plain and maybe I should add some glitter (like some indie brand!) Yes, I throw in my pink glitters and…

SHAKE again!!

20140114-193805.jpg

See…! My pink glitter grey polish!! ………. actually.. it turns out to be silver glitter! Because my pink glitter color run!!! oh faint~

20140114-193811.jpg

Erm… So here’s my grey “GLITTER” polish! HAHAHAHAHA!! Problem one, dries matte (not a big issue though). Problem two, glitter color run. Problem three, not enough glitter.

Conclusion: TRY HARDER NEXT TIME!!!

Happy Anniversary LBBB!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY The Little Black Beauty Box! Happy ONE Year Anniversary! This month’s box is a little costly but it’s just about S$2 more (I think..) for a box full of goodies!

20131116-235935.jpg

If you have realize, it came in a PINK RIBBON this time round! It was a black ribbon for my Shiseido Box! & as usual, it came with a personalized note.. Curious about what I’ve got this month?? Scroll down!

20131117-000409.jpg

JAM PACKED OF GOODNESS!!! All I can say is “wah” “wow” “OH” when I opened up the box! This box is filled with quantity and quality!!

First thing that caught my attention was….. Laura Mercier!

20131117-000736.jpg

Yeah! Got a Foundation Primer and Foundation Powder in my box!

The foundation primer is a lightweight, creamy gel meant to be used prior to foundation, creating an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. Leaves makeup looking fresh & colour-true the entire day.

The smooth finish foundation powder is a second skin comfort meets color-true wear, wet or dry. This silky-smooth innovation offers a natural veil that imparts a color true finish. It glides on effortlessly, camouflages, hydrates and visibly reduces lines.

I haven’t started using any of these yet but based on my satisfactory after using their tinted moisturizer, I’m pretty confident this two will works as promised!

Next up is tons of fragrance! 香香公主!

20131117-000424.jpg 20131117-000432.jpg

20131117-000442.jpg 20131117-000454.jpg

If feels like since they can’t decide which to give so they throw in everything! Hahaha.. I like all the scent here but I’m not going into details about how each of them smells like! They all just smells great! I especially like the Salvatore Ferragamo (it reminds me of Hugo dark Blue??)!

20131117-000533.jpg

This is the next thing that caught my attention! Sulwhasoo’s skin care pack!

Have you heard of Sulwhasoo? Sulwhasoo is a Korean herbal medicinal brand that embodies the wisdom and aesthetics of Sangseng. It’s pretty new in Singapore but I think it’s pretty popular in Korea!! (Psst! Don’t say I no share.. Sulwhasoo is under Amore Pacific and some other popluar brands under Amore Pacifics are…Etude House! Innisfree!! Mamonde, Espoire, IOPE and Laneige!! Don’t believe me? Check it out HERE.. Check out their wiki too!)

20131117-000542.jpg

These are the sample sachets I’ve received in my box! They are from the mainly from Essential Collection.

Cleansing OilA cleansing oil formulated with traditional Korean herbs to gently remove makeup and impurities for a refreshing finish. 

Coix Lacryma-Jobi (Job’s Tears) Seed and Tangerine peel Extracts help to effectively remove impurities, while apricot kernel oil remove dead skin cells for clearer and healthier skin foundation. The oil spreads smoothly to cleanse your makeup and impurities gently and quickly. When it mixes with water, the wash-off ingredients are activated for a refreshing finish.

20131117-000554.jpg

Next, Korres Shampoo? This is quite alien to me! Aloe & Dittany shampoo for normal hair type, obviously from the bottle! I don’t need to tell u how to use a shampoo uh? However, what I can share with you is that a 250ml shampoo cost €12,75 (selling at S$28 locally, that’s pretty costly) and Korres is a brand from Greece, if I’m not wrong!

20131117-000625.jpg

Ah HA! I’m sure you’re not alien with this!!! Macadamia is so so well known for this healing oil treatment! All beauty boxes are so recommending this to their subscribers! I got it for the third time already! What can this Healing Oil Treatment do?? LOTS!!

This Healing Oil Treatment is a therapeutic hair oil perfect for all hair types and is especially beneficial to dry, damaged hair.

  • Intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
  • Hair that is ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
  • Natural UV protection extends the life of color treatments
  • Reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%

I’m so amazed by the “reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%” so I went to read on more and found this…

How does the Healing Oil Treatment reduce drying time by up to 50%? As you know, oil and water separate – so when the oil is absorbed into the hair it basically pushes water trapped under the cuticle out and allows it to dry faster. The heat from the blow dryer reduces the viscosity and enhances penetration even further.  Drying time can be reduced upwards of 40-50% due to this effect, which not only saves you time but also minimizes exposure to heat-related hair damage.

Sounds logical… Hahaha!

20131117-000636.jpg

OK! I’m sure beauty freaks are gonna love this item! Eye shadow pencil from Nars! Aigle Noir is the color I’ve got here and I like it! Black base with gold shimmers. In case you didn’t know, NARS is a Shiseido-owned cosmetics and skin care company founded by François Nars, make-up artist and photographer.

20131117-000659.jpg

So, what’s so good about this Soft Touch Shadow Pencil? Well, it provide easy, portable, long-wearing application. These jumbo sized pencils have versatile functionality to shade the lid, line, or highlight the eye. Smooth, creamy texture delivers a smooth, velvety feel to the eye and make for easy blending and an ideal base for layering with a powder shadow for increased color intensity.

Who needs to bring an eye shadow brush now? =P

20131117-000714.jpg

The first question that pops in my mind is…. “What is this man!??” Totally clueless like an ant!

From the word HYDRA Veil, I can more or less tells it’s something to do with Hydrating but veil..? hmm like a cover? a shade?  Well.. I’m half correct.. This is a Hydrating Primer!

20131117-000726.jpg

A first from Illamasqua: part hydrator, part primer, Hydra Veil is a cosmetic-care primer developed to enhance make-up application and longevity by flooding the skin with immediate rehydration. Providing an instant smoothing effect, it rehydrates, calms, and refreshes skin and enhances the already long-wearing nature of Illamasqua’s make up.

And it does NOT contains Parabens, Sulfates & Phthalates! Many review I read online says that it’s lightweight and get absorbs quickly! So I tried it immediately (I love lightweight products!) and indeed it does get absorbs very quickly and totally lightweight!!

You can checkout their website if you would like to find out more! They have really interesting info in it & they offer makeup course toooo (just that I’m not sure if it’s application in Singapore)!

20131117-000754.jpg

Next, I have Givenchy’s skincare sachets! At first, I thought they were EDT but after looking at them hard enough I realise I was wrong.. XD They are eye cream, serum & day cream from Smile ‘N Repair collection.

Smile ‘N Repair, the new age defying treatment from Givenchy, is designed to help correct the appearance of wrinkles at the very moment when the facial movements exert the skin.

Just one look at the product I’ve got in my LBBB Anniversary box, I know it’d definitely more worthy than what I’ve paid for!! The atas products, the quantity of products and effort they put in!!

Seee! So many items this month! First thing that caught my attention is….. *drumroll*

20130921-022249.jpg

 

THIS! JJOYY Bubble Peeling Pad! I had never seen this! Have you… ? I went to do a web search per the website provided and realise.. this might be another good stuff I will fall in love with!

J1

Since the skin cells around the skin are soft tissue, if roughly treated it will cause trouble in stimulation. But it needs to be removed in 28-days period cycle to prevent dead skin cells being clogged up on the surface of the skin. If clogged, it will cause darkening and dehydration, which leads to wrinkled and dried skin!

J2 J3 J4 J5 J6 J7

 

Oh did I mention? This exfoliating pad can be reuse up to 3 times after first use. Just have to hang it in your bathroom when your done with it. Saw from some site that this pad can be used on other area where dead skin cells can be found.. ie: heels? elbow?

Amazing product ya? Let me try it tomorrow and I’ll tell u how I feel about it!

20130921-022307.jpg

 

Next, facial scrub from LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY!

LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY is a 100% Australian owned and operated family business established by Ms. Rita-Marie Hopfner in 1995. LA CLINICA is a cosmeceutical skin care line with a focus on visible results, efficacy, safety and organic ingredients. Its luxurious, high performance products cater to all skin types and conditions. The range was created to treat skin problems without the side-effects that can result from harsh ingredients that may create secondary skin problems, sometimes worse than the original condition.

This facial scrub uses the same exfoliating particles as a micro-dermabrasion machine. The formulation is enhanced with glycolic acid and vitamin C, suitable in a skin whitening regime. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells to allow your moisturisers and other skin care products to penetrate and work more effectively. Regular exfoliation is vital in preventing skin from looking dull, dry, scaly and lifeless. Regular use of this scrub will help you achieve a smooth, refined and radiant complexion.

This product contains active ingredients:

Glycolic Acid – Smoothes and rebalances the complexion by promoting the exfoliation of dead skin cells and unclogging blocked pores. Outer layers of the skin are gently peeled away to reveal refined, fresher, younger looking skin for a more radiant appearance. Considered to be the most effective and suitable fruit acid for skin treatment products. Naturally derived from sugar cane.

Vitamin C – Reduces inflammation & photoageing via its powerful anti-oxidant activity. Strengthens skin conditions to help repair and rejuvenate the skin.

White Brilliant Complex – Possesses multiple tyrosinase inhibitors to block the overproduction of pigmentation and regulate further pigmentation production whilst brightening the complexion. Exclusive to LA CLINICA FOR SKIN & BODY.

After cleansing and toning, apply this scrub onto wet skin, avoiding eye area. Lightly massage with fingertips using small circular motion. Continue for up to 2 minutes. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water and LA CLINICA facial cloth. Follow with GLY C REFINE Skin Refining Facial Mask. If you are having GLY C REFINE professional peels at a salon, exfoliate 48 hours after salon peel and use Skin Refining Mask 96 hours after salon peel.

Recoliv is the all-natural collagen product formulated with the most potent antioxidants found in olives and grapes. The collagen found in recoliv can slow down processes that impair your skin’s metabolism, thus improving skin elasticity and firmness.

1.Optimized collagen for your skin

With new German technology, the collagen has undergone a special enzymatic treatment to produce specific bioactive collagen peptides which optimizes the stimulation of fibroblasts in the skin. Having an extremely low molecular weight of 2 kDaltons, it is easily absorbed and delivered directly into the dermis, which systematically increases collagen production.

2.Optimized antioxidants for your skin

The olive and grape extracts provide a unique “total” profile of red wine and olive polyphenols with standardized content of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol. Special extraction and purification processes have been developed to preserve the characteristics of grapes and olives, ensuring the total profile of polyphenolic compounds is retained to yield maximum benefits for your skin.

20130921-022543.jpg

Benefits:

“recoliv” possesses antioxidant activity that is:

  • 2 X more than Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
  • 6 X more than catechin (found in green tea and berries)
  • 10 X more than lycopene (found in tomatoes)
  • Improves skin elasticity, increase moisture retention in skin and reduce wrinkles
  • Brightens and evens skin tone
  • Olive extract can enhance protection from UV damage
  • Antioxidant activity greater than green tea and berries
  • High ORAC value (measurement of antioxidant activity) per sachet
  • Sugar and fat free

Are all beauty surprise box gona do same thing every month?? they all include eyeshadow and nail polish in the same month~! but i muz say.. i prefer this color more than what i got in Bellabox!

This is a almost nude color with some duochrome effect~! very pretty.. its a good color for days when i want to go simple but let people notice i’m wearing polish~!

Next few items that im gona show u are the extra treats i got from entering the promo code into my subscription.

How to get the promo code? Just need to share that one particular post that VT post on their wall every month telling you what’s the theme for the coming trove, follow the steps and they will send you the code to enter to your subscription!

What did i get? haha! Leader’s Hydrgel Eye Patch.. it’s quite light weight and fits nicely. Cooling and the fact that it is transparent, people can’t see that you are doing your masking session unless they come very near you!! hahahaha!!

No more “I SAW A GHOST” incident… =P

20120828-230731.jpg

Next here is this sweet yummy mask!!! this mask is sooooo sweet and smell so yummy! i love this~! this brand is quite common and i think it has been around for quite some times already.

My skin feels clean and smooth after i washed off the mask.. definitely a mask that i will purchase again.. *thumbs up!*

20120828-230740.jpg

It’s another pure beauty cream.. but this time it is not eye cream! this is a lotion!! haven use it tho but i believe it will smell as nice effect as good as the eye cream!

20120828-230751.jpg

Together in this month’s trove, there is a complimentary facial and a S$5 Sasa voucher! Sasa voucher is super useful for me.. as for the facial… i think i can go when i have the time!

Last but not least, I’m already looking forward to my next Trove~!!!

August Bellabox – I Love Singapore

First thing first… Happy Belated National Day Singapore!!!

So here’s my Bellabox!! But before that…I’m disappointed with Courex! Got an email from Bellabox before national day saying that our boxes are on the way to us! Yippie…!! I waited and waited.. No sign of my box & it’s already been more than 5 days! 7 days to be exact.

So I decided to go online to check out the courier status. And to my HORROR (!), the status was…… “delivery unsuccessful – no one home” on 11 Aug!!! What is this!?!? There was no call to me from Courex!! Not even a delivery notice was found!!

I later wrote a FEEDBACK to Bellabox (cc Courex). Excuses are all I see from Courex! Was told that they try contacting my several time but couldn’t get hold of mi. (seriously, my cell was on 24/7 but I don’t see any missed call!) they even said there should be a note left behind and a lady from courex even told me I should have rec’d an SMS informing me of the delivery unsuccessful..

I only got one word for them.. Bullsh*t. If u din call means u din call. Stop being so defensive.

If this is going to happen again I think I might as well cancel all my subscription since I don’t feel being a valued member.. I can save some $$$ too if I cancelled them! I wonder where did that malay courier gone too.. Sigh..

A bit reluctant to finish up this post after this shitty incident.. But still, here’s my box..

20120819-205633.jpg

It’s the Bella bag again! But a little different from the previous one. This is without drawstring.. Just a bag.

Erm.. I forgot to snap a pic of everything.. So will upload it next time!

20120819-205645.jpg

Philosophy’s sample.. U know, i’ve been eyeing this Hope in a Jar since Sephora published in their FB.. It sounds as if it can really give me HOPE! haha thos i haven try buy below are just some more pics to show u..

Update on 29 August 2012: tried a few times.. like printed, it feels really like oil-free..so far so good but.. Like purity, it has this not very fragrance smell. mi no like. lucky i did not do an impulse buy at Sephora the other day! If u asked mi, i will say there are other better products out there that works the same but smells better! at least i feel more comfy using those.

20120819-205728.jpg

20120819-205737.jpg

and this kinda looks not bad!! hahahaha!

Update on 28 August 2012: This is nightmare.. this purity smell can kills! it did remove my makeup but i din apply a lot so i can’t comment if it is really good or just happen that my makeup is light. but still, i can’t get over the strong chemicated-like smell… i.. will not use this again seriously.. 

20120819-215802.jpg

20120819-215820.jpg

Next, Loreal Youth Code! i think will pass this to my mom..but again.. i wouldnt want my mom to look younger than mi!!! >_<

Update on 29 August 2012: I’ve tried this for about a week or so? hmm.. quite happy w the result. it din really make my face wrinkles-free like a baby but i can see that fine lines are now reduced! will definitely recommend this to ladies who wish to say bye bye to fine lines!!

20120819-215854.jpg

Nothing much to elaborate about this.. China Glaze Polish (80703 Senorita Bonita). not my color.

Another Enavose product. After using so many, i think only the hydrating mask is good. Together in this month’s box, there’s also a $5 gift voucher for Probiotics Exfoliaance Gommage.

Update on 27 August: Used this today! Mixed feeling.. hahaha..it feels so “nothing fascinating” about it when i press out a amount on my hand. However, as i massage on my face for few seconds (about 20-30 secs??) “ahhh..” is what came out from my mouth after that.. the flakes of dead skin starts appearing! SO i massage even moreee (hoping to see more flakes! – probably not! more flakes = more dead skin!?? gosh..) After im done massaging, i wash away with water and i goes “OOOH!!” again! (what now??) to my surprise, my skin feels soft and SMOOTH! really SMOOTH! if only i can use this everyday.. can i??

I have taken some pic of the product that was tested on my hand but i don have it now. Will upload it when i have access.. stay tune!

20120820-171742.jpg

Besides that, there’s also Anna Sui Gift Voucher… and… 20120820-171749.jpg

Philosophy’s Exclusive gift.

20120820-171757.jpg

LAST BUT NOT LEAST!!! The usual bellabox info card… i think it will be better is u click to see larger image of this than my post!!! >_<

Sorry for this Not-Very-Sincere Post!!! I’m too lazy.. TODAY.

March Glamabox

20120314-224546.jpg

That’s my March Glamabox! Are u excited to see what’s in it???? Hahahhaa.. Here a quick preview!!

20120314-225232.jpg

I will share more details again when I have more time!

Ok! Here’s more pic and comments..

First.. I’m gona show u.. SHAMPOO!! So happy to see a shampoo!!! hahaha Typical Singaporean! BIGGER, Better! hahahaha!! Looks like a branded shampoo to mi.. but sry im not brand conscious.. LOL! i tried it the night i rec’d this.. It’s written there that it restores Shine and softness, strengthening brittle, dry damaged and color treated hair… AND! It’s SULFATE FREE… Well, i can’t really tell if my hair is softer or less damange now cuz had only used once.. but i do feel not bad.. hahaha! smells pleasant too! This, I believe, is available at Watsons already.. we shd be able to get it for less than S$15! (cuz Glamabox is selling for abt S$15.XX)

Next is Crabtree’s lotion… I have not used this yet.. but my laopo had been using this.. if she’s using.. i can say 80% this is good! hahaha!! and plus.. crabtree is well known for the lotions isn’t it? (this month Glamabox is so exciting!!)

Lierac – Wrinkle filling (Day & Night) Cream plus a lifting cream.. i gave my mom the wrinkle filling cream while i take the lifting cream.. but seriously.. rec’g 3 months of surprise boxes, i have stocks for all these serum and cream.. i wonder how long for me to even start a nice bottle…

This is the most hilarious one! its a Toner.. fruity toner if i didn’t rmb wrongly.. it comes with a voucher.. Voucher to redeem free gift.. and location for redemption.. in HONGKONG! GRRR~~~~ anyone gg HKG??

i LIKE this!!! Clinique’s eye shadow set.. comes in 3 colors – rose, deep purple and light greyish purple.. these colors are very neutral.. not those extreme colors that only allows u to put on when wearing certain clothes.. and it comes with 2 diff typ of brush too.. (probably my next post i’ll explore more about brushed..)

Proudly Presents….

**DRUMROLL**

My very first BellaBox(!) from Bellabox.sg~!!!!!

In Bellabox, you will get 5 of the latest prestige, boutique and cult beauty products from around the world every month after you subscribed.. at a fee of S$15.00 monthly.. if you subscribe 12 months at one go, you’ll get 1 month free! Instead of paying S$180 ($15x12months), u now pay S$165! and i suppose the reward point is S$1 for 1 point..

20120223-101214.jpg

My Bellabox comes via Registered Mail! so actually S$15.00 is inclusive of RM, worth it huh!? RM usually cost additional S$2.50 so that makes it… *calculating* S$12.50 per box! AND YOU CAN GET LATEST PRODUCT!! (i dun usually do regular shopping for cosmetic nor beauty product, so i cant gaurantee they are LATEST.. but i can say, the items that i rec’d, i definitely love them more than Glamabox! – Glamabox comes with 5 beauty product as well. However, sadly, i don see the items very useful to me.. Altho i’m fat, i don fancy slimming soup or nutribar and because im fat, i don see a need in bust enhancement or lipo cream.. i guess out of the 5 items, facial mask is the most practical item to me- esp Xmas Box’s mask!!)

 

I cant wait to open up my bellabox whn i got it!! and i must say, despite the lower price (than Glamabox), the box is in good quality! now i can keep boxes for future use! Teehee!! ^^ Like i mention, there will be 5 items in each box… and i think not many ppl will have the same box cuz its handpicked according to your profile when you sign up… so in my first box, I’ve got………………..

20120223-101221.jpg

– Sample smokey eye shadow! (haven’t really try so i cant tell if it is good or bad.. but im wondering.. “how bad can a shadow goes???”)

– Waterproof eyeshadow and gel eyeliner – abit greenish golden or dark dirty yellow tone, depending how u see it.. (will take a picture of it when i return home..) **ok, i’ve finally got the pictures done! 🙂 and now you can see the tone i am referring.. looking at it again, i think that it had a dark grey tone as well.. wat do you think?

20120223-101308.jpg

  

– Sample La Peria Divine Eau de Toilette (this smells GREAT!! i’m wearing this today and i’m feeling SEXY!!! hahahahaha!!!! shall get a regular size botl when i have the chance!)

– Hydra Sebum (haven’t really study how to use this, but it looks like it can do magic.. something to do with 保湿!hydrate~ dehydrate~ hydrate~ dehydrate~ hiak hiak!)

– Body Serum (tried this last nite.. well.. dripped a few drops on my hand, applied like a lotion.. and its smells like.. roses? WILD roses blend with greens!? i can’t describe this smell.. Its not a typical nice sweet rose fragrance but it smells like those roses you get from a florist.. FRESH roses!? i feel as if im in a nursery…! quite relax in fact! WAIT.. but this thing is suppose to moisturize ur body (for my case, hand)…… >_<  I’ll try again tonight!! LOL~)

Well i hope my next BellaBox can be as great! Definitely looking fwd to my next BB!!
