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!

StyleXSanta Box

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Today I’m gonna share with you my December Little Black Beauty Box – StyleXSanta Box!! But before that, pls note that LBBB subscription has been amended.. It’s no longer at $19.90 (or was it $19.99?). The new price is S$21.90.

Initially I thought it was because of the One Year Anniversary and Christmas season that’s why the box got more expensive.. You know more expensive some how relates to more premium products or something special for that box? Although the box that I had subscribed to so far (since the price increase) hasn’t disappoint me but I got it all wrong. LOLX! This price increase is not due to festive seasons. It’s permanent.

起价了啦! T_T

So with the price increase am I gonna still subscribe to LBBB? YESSS, of course!! It’s juz a $2 increase and I have yet to open up a box with disappointment! The quality is still there. The quantity too! (It’s still sad that good things no longer comes cheap!! Below $20 and more than $20 makes a big diff leh~ although its juz $2! Consumer mindset!!)

So what have I got myself this CHRISTMAS!??

20131225-145309.jpg

I was just praising LBBB and this is what I got for my StyleXSanta box?!??! *heartache*

Actually a second look ……………

20131225-145319.jpg

Not bad what!?!! Although the items come in SMALL SIZE but at least they’re not sample sachets and I have branded makeup products to play with!!!

To start off, let’s take a look at….
20131225-145345.jpg

Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Serum!

In just 4 weeks nature’s next generation power plant noticeably reduces wrinkle length & depth. Without the irritation. Visibly helps improve the vertical fret lines between your eyes and the stubborn furrows across your forehead. Youthful “bounce” is revived.

20131225-145359.jpg

Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Serum!

Help empower skin to rebound from ageing dehydration. Help restore youthful looking smoothness to reduce the appearance of fine, dry lines. This plant serum with rejuvenating Rose of Jericho, Trehalose and Sea Haricots helps keep skin happily hydrated. Skin looks and feels dewy, healthy and revitalized.

Guess what!? This is just right for me because it’s got combination dry skin! My type!

20131225-145407.jpg

SOMETHING my mom will loveee!! Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair! This is the star product of Estée Lauder, is it not??

Revolutionary technology! The power to change your skin – Every night!! This serum is a major innovation. For the first time, this breakthrough serum promotes a natural nighttime purification process—vital to younger-looking skin.

While you sleep, your skin goes through dramatic changes to repair the day’s damage.Two of the most important changes are purification and synchronization.

Purification: a natural nighttime repair process that helps remove cellular debris that can accelerate premature signs of aging.

Synchronization: a natural process that ensures cellular repair happens at exactly the right time.

Wake up to more beautiful skin – every day! Tested and proven. New Advanced Night Repair addresses all key signs of visible aging. Effective for every ethnicity.

  • Lines & wrinkles looks significantly reduced – More than 75% of women felt that their skin looked more youthful – in just 4 weeks.

  • See a radiant, more translucent & even toned look – 83% of women felt their skin looked healthier, fresher & more rested – in just 4 weeks.

After sharing so much, I now change my mind! Maybe I should keep this for myself!! If that’s not enough to make u feel WOW.. read on!

Lack of sleep – is it aging your skin too fast? New research says – IT IS! For the first time, a major independent research study shows lack of sleep can accelerate visible skin aging.

The Unprecedented Sleep Study: Estée Lauder commissioned a major independent sleep study in collaboration with University Hospitals Case Medical Center—a world-renowned center of excellence in dermatological research.

The Surprising Results: Lack of sleep can not only accelerate premature signs of skin aging, but affects skin’s natural repair processes. Clinical data shows that poor quality sleep is associated with:

  • Acceleration of fine lines.
  • Increased vulnerability to dryness and dehydration.
  • Uneven skintone.

I think i not only have to sleep more from now onwards, I gotta use this precious baby before I jump onto my bed too!

20131225-145416.jpg

Now for some eye opener!! M.A.C. Zoom Lash! Major drama. Lasts all day. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels light, supple. Ultra-sculpted brush has three-sided fibres to embrace and separate each lash, hugging every curve. Coats in one stroke from root to tip. No smudging.

20131225-145445.jpg

Very packed bristle! I can already feel my lash is gonna be very dramatic!

Below are my lashes without any mascara!

20131225-145507.jpg

20131225-145516.jpg

I kinda like my lashes at times.. geez! >_< They’re very .. erm.. dense? LOL

So after applying the Zoom Lash below is how it looks like!

20131225-145527.jpg

20131225-145535.jpg

It’s more defined and looks darker!

20131225-145614.jpg

Not sure if it’s my imagination, it seems to have lengthened my lash a little!

20131225-145856.jpg

So the above pic with my eyes closed is a comparison for you to see “before/after” effect. Can you tell which has mascara on?

Ans: My left eye (which is the eye on the right that you’re looking at now). Kinda obvious~

20131225-145906.jpg

Another thing.. this mascara doesn’t feel very clumpy and its easy to achieve the volumized look. Use a lash curler before applying mascara so that your lashes will stay curled for a longer time..

I wore this mascara since noon till midnight (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) and it shows no sign of smudging! No gothic look at all~ hahah! Waterproof? OF COURSE!! Removing is not hard at all tooooo….

S$29 (approximately) for a mascara like this? WHY NOT!!

20131225-150007.jpg

Time to remove your makeup after party? Try this M.A.C. Pro Eye Makeup Remover!

A mega-effective remover that lifts off every look – from delicate to dramatic – without smudges, tears or aggression. Pro-quality, yet decidedly gentle; calms, hydrates and soothes skin with cucumber extract. Makeup can be immediately reapplied. A favourite of busy models. I forgot that I have this in my stash thus didn’t use it to remove my zoom lash when I got home! Darn! I will review this again (if I remember) when I start using it!

Done with the eye? Now let’s check out something for our lips!!

20131225-150128.jpg 20131225-150144.jpg

Lip Gloss from Bobby Brown! YOU KNOW WHAT, I am allergic to BB’s product! T_T oh man!! I will get rashes if I apply anything on my skin. My lips will feel mild numbness when I apply lip color on my lips.. The more you love the more you can’t get to use it.. *sobs* (I’m not trying to scare you.. oops!)

This color seems a bit shimmerish neutral/natural brown color. I thought it will make my lips look dark.. but…….

20131225-150159.jpg

It really look very natural on my lips!

*I’m risking my “life” to put this on just to show you the result okay!!* hee.. >_<

20131225-151409.jpg

20131225-151423.jpg

You can see my chapped lips looks fine after I applied the lip gloss! Totally good cover up! WAHAHAHAHA… too bad I’m allergic to BB! aww.. Don’t reminds me of that…

NEXT NEXT NEXT~~~

20131225-151529.jpg

The oil-free moisture “drink” developed by Clinique’s dermatologists to maintain optimal moisture balance for skins comfortable in the cheeks but oily in the T-zone or oily all over. Oil-free formula softens, smooths, improves.

This comes in a travel size if you have noticed in the first two pic.. guess I can keep this for my upcoming getaway!

20131225-151446.jpg 20131225-151508.jpg

OK, this is totally awesome… Been hearing soooo much hoo-ha about it and finally my chance to get my hands on it!

20131225-151515.jpg 20131225-151522.jpg

This cream is really solid cream.. hahaha… It’s not those light weight runny kinda moisturizer.. It’s more like Hazeline Snow cream kinda texture but better of course! Even it’s price is…. as HIGH-END as the product itself.. make a guess?? Or perhaps you already know.. 1oz for $155! 16.5oz for *drumroll* $1900!!

-faint- I must appreciate this 0.11oz I’ve got here..

20131225-151540.jpg

Next up is something I’ve been wanting to try. DKNY Be Delicious Skin, I call it “green apple”! One of my friend been using this since I don’t know went…

The scent is not as sour as green apple please! It’s a sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.

Now, save the best for last??? HAHAHA! Now, finally something for my beau to share!!

20131225-151557.jpg

“Last” Vanity Trove

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

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

But after they changed their concept, I feel that the surprise is not there anymore and $25 for samples sounds really expensive now.. 😦 none the least, I’ve made it all worthwhile in this trove!

Seee!! These are the items I had selected! They arrived in the morning via Ta-Q-Bin courier just before I head out for my long weekend staycation!! Yahoooo!
20130809-052727.jpg
This is the Go60 mask that I had tried in previous trove and I find it AMAZING!!! It made my skin ultra smooth and ultimate hydrating!! I feel so wonderful after using it! The smoothness it give is by far the best among all the mask I had use!!! I can’t find much product details online yet but seriously I think u should really try this too if you have the chance!! This is one mask you cannot missed!! Read HERE for more info from my previous post!

It’s so good that I even clicked to get for other type of Go60 mask!!! It’s definitely not a waste of credit to get these mask!! *thumbs up*
20130809-053328.jpg
Next up, makeup remover!!! Do you know why I’m so HAPPY to see my trove arrive before I head out for my staycation!? That is because, I can bring along my travel size makeup remover and no need to buy one from Watsons!

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

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

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

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

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

April Trove – Spring’s Surprises

Last night had showed u a sneak preview.. LOL~ today i’m gona show u more.. ok.. perhaps i should share my thots first.. (pardon my long winded opening..LOL) Here goes…

i think the courier guy is good.. he actually called in advance to inform me that he will be around my area between 5-10pm (thot the range was a bit too FAR APART..) but he actually take into account of my request. I asked if he could deliver to me last in the list (9-10pm) as i won’t be home early.. and guess what.. he’s totally fine~! how cool!

Jus bef i reached my void deck, he called again and asked me to gv him a call when i’m reaching as he’s alr at my void deck waiting.. (impressed!! btw, it was only about 8.40pm then..) and throughout this whole “process”, he did not show bits of fustration and negetive attitude!! He’s all POLITE and TACTFUL!! *thumbs up!!*

Indeed a S$25 box service is different! If he had show a bit of attitude, i might have stopped my subscription!! GOOD JOB Vanity Trove!! GOOD JOB.. *oops* i din get the courier guy’s name! T_T

20120423-092529.jpg

So here’s the box which i’m so looking fwd to!!! It’s a box of 5 sample items and vouchers (plenty!!!).. Clinique.. Style.. Nuxe body.. and a house brand soap??

20120423-092409.jpg

20120423-092422.jpg

I’m sure everybody is familiar with this brand, Clinique. In this month’s VT, i’ve got a lip gloss with SPF 15 and a liquid facial soap for dry combination skin type (it’s my type~! how coincident!! LOL!) Clinique products are Allergy Tested and 100% Fragrance Free! well.. at least that is what is stated in thieir website.. LOL!! But one thing true enough.. their products (skin care) are custom-fit for every skin type and concern.. i had been to a Clinique counter ages ago (when i was a TEENAGE!!) to purchase their product.The beauty consultant there will actually talk to you to find out a few things from you and there is this “survey” u need to do to let them know more about your skin type and concerns.. Very personalise indeed.. unlike other brands that i had been to, the beauty consultants tends to introduce only their latest product.. 😦

The lip gloss here is a nude pink shade with some microshimmer.. it looks pink and sweet in the tube.. but when i applied, it is quite transparent.. and quite sticky actually.. Not that it will glue up your lips but it feels more “fiction” when u “mmmm” ur lips together tightly and trying to rub them against each other, probably becuz its less oily?

As for the facial soap, no comments yet as i only used ONCE.. quite hard to tell if it is good.. i would be telling a lie if i say it is excellent! >_<

20120423-092416.jpg

Next is this coffee soap.. it smells good but i’m not a soap person.. so i passed this to my dad..! he’s a coffee person and also a soap person! i think this suits him best! hahah!! Hope he wun turn into some vixen after shower!! hahahaha!!

20120423-092427.jpg

Body scrub~~ come just in time! my Lemongrass House body salt is finishing..! thou this is not some full size scrub but better than nothing! hahahaha!! (i have a photo of the scrub, let me upload it here ltr..! it looks abit.. unpleasant tho! probably b’cuz of the colors… hahah!) Here’s the pic!!! looks very unpleasant ya?? hahhaa! anyway, i feel that the scrub is rough… as if it wil damage ur skin.. but after scrubbing, i feel much better.. 🙂 not bad!

20120423-092442.jpg

20120423-092511.jpg

I’m not sure if this is a full size hair moisturizer but this is the biggest item in my VT! Together with this hair moisturizer is a S$2 voucher for future purchase at Guardian! i wonder how “costly” is their product!! (let mi do some research and keep you guys update again!!) Of cuz, i hope this product works! gona start using it tonight!

20120423-092503.jpg

Apart from solid samples.. here is one complimentary spa voucher and a spa polish! i think this month theme is highly related to coffee!! this spa sample is some coffee pack too! Looking fwd to my spa treat SOON! i hope they don’t do hard selling.. BTW, this Masego Spa is at Jurong.. was it call JCube?? the Ex-Jurong Entertainment Complex..?? oh well..  SAFRA Jurong!! Click here to see one of the review on Masego!!

20120423-092451.jpg

Last but not least… here is the TONS of vouchers in the pink envelope! but sadly.. none suits me.. the clothing for sale are for regular size ladies.. and there are not much accessories i can get from these sites.. think im gona pass on to my sis.. 🙂

Intl Women Day

TODAY.. i rec’d my Mar Bellabox! super excited about it!! Been longing for it since i rec’d my first Bellabox!!! Good thing is.. it did not disappoint me!! seriously it did NOT! hahahaa! ok no more nonsence.. let me show you what i’ve got in my Mar box!!!

Before i go into details i must say… when i got my box, the weight of it makes mi wonder.. “is there more items in it this month…??” cuz its like kinda heavier than last mth! LOL! and after i opened it up, indeed i got shock.. not only its heavier, the packaging inside is nicer this time.. and it comes w a $50 Dermalogica gift voucher! dun be too happy.. this voucher is only redeemable on facial treatment priced at $100 and above only.. so it is as good as none to me.. Now.. i shall show you what’s inside!! heee~!!

Hand, Nail & Cuticle Creme – just tried this.. seems not bad! my hand feels smooth now.. as smooth as when i put on Crabtree & Evelyn’s hand lotion! but this is better (IMO) as it tackles nails & cuticle too! mi loveeee~! A point to note: its not oily…. really not oily..if u have a crabtree lotion.. u will understand this not oily feeling..! love this even more now.. AND before i forgets.. it smells great too.. i guess because it has lavender content so the scent is definitely there..

OK! this is a bit tough.. i hvn read up wat is this… let mi do my homework and update you guys after i find out wat is this for… HAHAHA! nvrtheless, feel free to enlighten mi about this!! =P

Dermalogical Special Cleansing Gel –  if i did not rmb wrongly.. i think i had used this before LOOONG ago! what’s more can u say about derma’s product?? they’re good stuff ok! it is effective and also expensive! LOL! u can see result after use.. but the down side is… once u stop using, all your “problems” will come back very fast.. meaning u gotta continue to use their product.. and due to the high cost… i dropped off halfway.. But it is really a good brand.. at least to mi (& my mom)…

LUS Lip Gloss – this comes just in time.. i was looking for a gloss earlier at Junction 8.. but couldnt decided which color to get so i went home empty handed.. and now.. i have my new lip gloss.. From the bottle, it looks like some orangie gloss with shimmers.. but when u put it on, its actually quite a nude shade.. mi like too! hahaha!! and the shimmer makes ur lips 亮晶晶!! OH!! u know what? i got a shock when i twist open the gloss..

are u able to spot anything special?? lol!! ok.. hint… look at the cap! when u open, the cap will light up.. DUN ask mi y or how.. i got no idea.. it just lighted up! hahahahaha!! so cool! this is sth special and i had not seen before.. i showed it to my mom and she’s amazed too.. hahaha!! (suddenly we’re like two caveman! – sua gu!)

Royal Herb Cream (with pure gold flakes) – well.. another cream for skin renewal, but this is with gold flakes..! i din take the pic of it but the gold flakes in it are not little.. haha! reasonable at least.. and as per the info given together, this is 100% oil-free and 100% plant-based ingredients.. haven try too… my face cant take too much things at once.. !

THIS!!! is a complimentery sample pack i guess.. overnight repair serum.. seems good! hahhaa!! again.. how bad can a derma product be.. LOL!!

Conclusion, i love my Mar Bellabox!! Hope Apr Bellabox will be as good or even better!! Also, hope to see my (last) Glamabox arrived next week!!
