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!!

Qoo10 Cocomo

My blog readers will know that I hardly recommend any seller from Qoo10 on my blog. Not that they’re no good. It’s just that there’s nothing special worth promoting for them.

However, today I will be sharing with you one of my favourite seller and the things they sell are definitely worth mentioning!!

DISCLAIMER FIRST!! This is NOT a sponsored post! I used my hard earn money to purchase each and every one of them!

COCOMO

IMG_6926These are the products which I had bought so far… I didn’t buy at one go of course!! they are being brought home over a period of time..

I will not be drilling in depth into every product but more of showing you what I’ve bought from them!

I remember the first product I bought from COCOMO is ETTANG Rubber Mask!

I’ve tried both old and new version!! Equally good but new version is better in the sense that they look more attractive and comes with a safety seal!

IMG_5265IMG_5264I did a post in May 2015 sharing my experience in using this rubber mask! If you’re keen to try this rubber mask, do give it a read by clicking HERE!

Well, I have not use the GOLD MASK yet so no comments on that! But but.. I read a lot of good review about it..!! Probably I should use it soon!!!

Next product from COCOMO that caught my attention is BERRISOM LIP TINT PACK! Don’t think I have written any post about it yet but had briefly share the goodness on my lip stash post! 

IMG_6927 IMG_6928

I bought 3 colors (separate purchase) and among all I think I like Vivid Scarlet best!

**BTW, if you’re wondering why my hand look so FAIR, it’s Oseque High-end Touch Foundation! It’s a lil too fair for me so i will not be sharing much on that!

IMG_4423 IMG_4426 IMG_4428 It’s bright and highly pigmented! You can check out my review of this HERE & HERE!

Next up is another HAPPY PURCHASE!! SON&PARK LIP CRAYON!
IMG_6910Out of so many nice color why did I purchase one that has NO COLOR!!? It’s not for no reason okay~ This was one of the most recommended color – natural yet sweet looking!

And…. Sugar Tint is Jeon Ji Hyun’s HOT PICK!

jeonjihyun

I was still worried that the “color” will not show on my lips but… SEEE!!!!

IMG_6985

left: with sugar tint     |  right: without sugar tint

Can see the difference right!!!!

IMG_6986 IMG_6987

I thought this was pretty awesome and totally worth the price!!! The sweet rose scent is mild and soothing! Application is smooth and not sticky at all.

Lips looks so kissable and soft now!! Definitely recommending this to girls who like natural makeup and wana heal dry lips!

 

SELF COLLECTION @ NOVENA MEDICAL CENTER
IMG_6875If you opt for the FREE self-collection, don’t worry of getting lost or no public transport bringing you there! I collected most of my COCOMO products from Novena Medical Center! Hassle-free and friendly staff!!

Berrisom Lip Tint Pack

Staying at home can make your pocket burnt a hole too! Was window shopping in Qoo10 the other day and saw this lip tattoo on promo///

berrisom1

berrisom

Tattoo??? I haven really seen a lip color that can really last u that long time! So outta curiosity, I bought one to try! S$6 nia.. can try la!

Yes, upon receiving my package, I tried it immediately!!

Like what it promise, 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!

But you will have to be careful when applying else your lips may look outta shape!

IMG_4380

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 IMG_4424

This is my first application.. I read reviews saying that you have to apply a reasonably thick layer in order to achieve more obvious tone.. So here’s my sexy red lips! I would advise you guys to apply the lip tint nicely (not jaggy) because it will affect the result when you peel if off later – you wouldn’t want jaggy lip color.. It’s is very sticky so apply it nicely at one go is gonna take a bit of practice..

If you have chapped lips, like me, I think will be good if you can heal your chapped lips first before doing this. WHY?? because this tint can give your lips quite a fair bit of tingling sensation.. If you’re those 爱美不要命 kind of girl, then go ahead to try it out. The tingling feeling is consider bearable but kinda irritating. When it’s drying up, the feeling will be gone eventually and you will start to feel a bit difficult to talk! LOL..

Dun worry, you just need to leave this tint on for 5-10 mins and you will see it’s drying up..

IMG_4425

This is a bit gross BUT to show you that how you know it’s ready we have to go through this… (LOL)

See the side of the lips? It will kinda look like peeling off already.. hence all u need to do is just put it off (like your peel off mask la!)

IMG_4426  IMG_4428

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!

IMG_4434 IMG_4435

IMG_4437 IMG_4436

No matter how hard I rub, it doesn’t smudge!!!! I tried wiping with a tissue, it doesn’t come off too but did stain the tissue a bit though,considering I was rubbing it REAL HARD and only that amount came off! Maybe water will wash it off?? NO it did not too!! WAH this is totally like magic!!

I tried this lip tattoo at night and guess what.. I woke up with my lips red too (should be red right? I didn’t talk, did not eat, why will it not be red).. So are you now worrying how to remove it since it’s so stubborn??

Chillax! Just like what it claims, it only stay for 12 hours. By the time i’m halfway through my work, my lip tattoo is almost gone.. I applied on Tue 8pm and it lasted till Wed about 10am? That’s more than 12 hours right?

And did I not tell you about this lip tint pack smell GOOD too!!? Not those floral scent of baby powder scent.. It’s like perfume seriously! And after talking for soo long I realize I haven’t tell you what color is this?? I bought Vivid Scarlet, said to be one of the new color among the collection.

The other colors I bought are Lovely Peach & Sexy Red..

IMG_6927 IMG_6928Shall show you the color on my lip some other day!!

 

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!

Before I end, do check out my previous post HERE on lip treatment! Hope it will be helpful for you ! 🙂

Pocket ended with holes holes holes after I went to the Korea Beauty Sale at Marriott recently. What is available there? Mainly The Face Shop, Belif and VDL! Many out there should be familiar with all these brands but what interest me most is VDL! I’ve always wanted to try something from VDL but not too sure want I wanted until that day!

(Some products hidden! Oops!)

I did not buy a whole lorry of products but this is enough to make me go on diet for this month – there are many other sale coming up (Kanebo Seasonal Sale on 10th & 11th April)!!

Basically I bought what I needed.. A face scrub (TFS)! A few gel mask (TFS) after very little persuasion! The sales lady said it’s good to apply a mask after the scrub (it’s not exactly those rough particle scrub but liquid gel kind that turns into eraser-like particle after some massage, it’s quite good – really! I will show you guys again soon!)

Seriously, I’m only looking for a face scrub BUT I ended up with additional mask, nail polish, tint bar & blush!!

The purpose of today’s post is not to share with you how much I had bought but to share with you where you can get VDL Tint Bar at a LOWER price – so you will not need to wait for a sale to buy them!!

Why must have a VDL Tint Bar?? Ah-haa! You have not read my previous post on lip color right!!?? Check it out HERE – scroll down to the VDL Tint Bar paragraph!

20140401-221056.jpg

If you have read it or already using it, you should know this tint bar is totally amazing!! The usual price at a VDL retail shop should be more than S$25! BUT on Qoo10, you can grab it for LESS than $20 (the last time I saw the price for it is about S$16.50 – that’s almost S$10 difference, if the retail price is S$25)!!

Essence Private Sale! IRRESISTIBLE!

20131104-231815.jpg

Like what is says.. It’s SALE again!! The last time I went to Essence sales is also within this year (2013)…. erm no! It was LAST YEAR! Wow.. how time fly! You can read post from HERE. Essence have really good and affordable makeup products, nail polish and skin care! I’m here mainly for polishes and makeup! Glad that I made the right choice to have come by! Else, I’ll be missing everything in this bag!

20131104-231827.jpg

Guess what I’ve grabbed home.. Nail polish, yes! Lipstain, yes! Nail cavier, yes! Some others covered by polishes so I’m gona go show it to you below..

20131104-232124.jpg

LIPSTAIN

Lipstick or gloss wearing off after just one sip of water? With the pen that gives lips semi-permanent definition, a light stain and pampers them with moisturizing ingredients – the CATRICE Lip Stain! Prep your lips for all day colour by first applying a base with our CATRICE Colour Infusion Longlasting Lipstain (S$7.90). It offers the desired color infusion for our lips! Its fruity aroma lifts our spirits and is easy to apply thanks to the soft shape of the tip. Apply in several layers to intensify the color. Use waterproof remover to remove.

Make a guess how much i got it for? ………. 3 for S$10!! Best part is that I can mix and match any three items! The other two items i grabbed a lipstick and a waterproof mascara!

LIPSTICK

Like the light colour and moisturizing effect it gave my lips. Like all other lipstick, color didn’t last past lunch time but my lips managed to stay moisturized though! This was one of the 3 for S$10 item so nothing to complain!

MASCARA

Was looking for the “function” of this mascara other than being waterproof but apparently, other than waterproof, it doesn’t do anything else. LOL! I applied 2 coats of mascara and this is how it looks like.

20131104-234840.jpg

20131104-234935.jpg

PRIMER

Even out a blotchy or dull complexion with the CATRICE Prime and Fine Illuminating Base. Pearl shimmer pigments help cover up irregularities and brighten up your entire face. At just S$9.90 at all our counters, the Prime and Fine Illuminating Base is one of the most affordable primers on the market.

Guess what? I got it for S$4 at the sale event!! That’s more than 50% off!

I tried it yesterday and felt that it’s just so-so. Nothing fantastic but still good that I had apply a primer before my BB cream and all. It’s like an extra protection for me. There is just one thing I couldn’t stand about this primer… The scent. It smells a lil odd. For a moment i thought my EDP expired thus smelling weird but later realize it’s my primer.. arrgg.. Hence today, I had switched back to my Loreal primer.

Next up, it’s something to treat your feet!

20131104-232144.jpg

These are the only Essence product that caught my attention! The whitening nail polish and a foot protection stick!

828_10151982834481745_1030662542_n

I’m totally in love with this whitening nail polish!! It’s just one thing we (me and my girlfriend) don’t understand.. WHY only TOE NAIL?? Can’t it be used on finger nail?? We seriously don’t know why… Porbably it’s just the marketing strategy.. They want you to buy a (finger) nail polish & a TOE nail polish.. LOL!

Heck care, I applied them on my chubby fingers and I’m totally amazed by it’s whitening effect! I’m having yellow nail because of the highly pigmented polish I used recently and also partly I had them on my nails for too long. It may not have shown in the picture but it’s really clear to me that my index and middle fingers are whitened! Not only that, I have ridge nails too.. This polish helps to level my nails and now i have beautiful white levelled nails! heartz them so much!!

I have not try the foot protection stick because I don’t have any new show recently! When I get the chance to use it, I’ll just update this post again?

Just in case you are wondering, Essence show your feet foot protection stick has an innovative formulation that provides an invisible protection film onto the skin and immediately reduces the chafing from shoes, also blisters can be effectively prevented in no time at all. Now there’s no need to bite your new shoe 3 times (so that it won’t bite u – some chinese belief)!

20131104-232136.jpg

POLISHES~~~~  WOW! They have limited colors but still I manage to grab a few for this year’s Christmas pressie!! Heard from the sales person (telling another customer) saying that a bottle of polish cost S$7.90?? Wow! Can you imagine I grabbed all these at half the price!?!

Caviers.. Nude.. Pink.. Orange.. Gold.. HO HO HO! Merry Christmas!!!!

Just when I was about to check out… my instinct pulled me to the corner where all the fragrance are seating…

20131104-232206.jpg

Yes & I got tempted to bought one home! Kate Spade Twirl was the first that twirled to me (the sales lady gave me a strip of sample scent) and I got hooked! It smells … erm.. great! I don’t know how to explain the scent to you.. It’s not those floral or fruity scent.. it’s .. the scents of INDEPENDENT! LOL!!

I love sale! I hope more brands out there will have this kinda warehouse sale or private sale!! It’s a good time to whack up stocks!! hahaha!

August Bellabox

For about… almost… 6 months(?) I’m finally back to being a Bellabox member again!! Why suddenly subscribed again?? Because I rec’d an email fr Bellabox saying that “subscribe now and received FREE $125 gift box”!!(although I have not rec’d’s my $125 box!!)

So for now, lets take a look at my August Bellabox….
20130810-220315.jpg

Quite an impressive box! Let’s check out the items now….

20130810-220351.jpg

It’s ModelCo’s Cheek & Lips tint! This tint is a lightweight, dual purpose cheek and lip tint that delivers a natural, rosy glow. The long-lasting gel formulation glides on smoothly, leaving the perfect amount of sheer colour for just-flushed cheeks and a lightly stained lip.

20130810-220358.jpg

This tint is ideal for that “no makeup” look with a subtle hint of colour.

It is a very sexy red color you see here! Reminds mi of vampire bites! But trust me, it really will eventually turn light rosy pink when u apply them..

20130810-220405.jpg

20130810-220415.jpg

See.. The color get absorbs in quite fast actually.. It leaves a mark on the area where I first leave it on while snapping some pics! I swear I spent less than a min taking pic! Did I also mention, this tint smell kinda sweet too.. Hee.. I guess tint are no more that scary when they were first introduced… My first lip tint from Tony Moly scares me quite a bit (the scent)..

20130810-231729.jpg

Next item that caught my attention is this hand cream! It’s not the brand that caught my attention, it’s the box!!! I thought I squashed it but when I trying to push it back to its ‘original’ form I then realize(!!!) the box is slanted by nature…!!!(CHEY!!)

20130811-104342.jpg

I did not squashed it!!! hahahaha!! Unique box indeed!

20130810-231735.jpg

This is the Oriental Rose with Coenzyme Q10 hand cream from Harnn!

With Organic Rose Water, Shea Butter, and Coenzyme Q10 in rich balm formulation keep hand hydrated and softened while strengthening your nails.

20130811-104346.jpg

another thing i like (and don’t like too) is the safety seal.. freshness guaranteed! but.. i cant test a bit on my hand.. (T_T) But i guess it’s ok..

So now, after caring for your hand, lets take a look at what’s for your lips!!

20130810-234531.jpg

Swiss Rituel Fruity Protective lip Balm!! It smells very sweet even without mi unwrapping the wrapper! It contains moisturizing active ingredients that will condition your lips and prevent fine lines and wrinkles through Vitamin E – all these while exuding a fresh scent of fruity grape!

Use this with care because they are pretty soft. Don’t turn the lip stick all out to apply! You’ll break it… In fact I broke mine (previous stick).. But still usable, just have to be extra gentle now.. LOLX!

Now that u have a moisten lips.. Time for inner beauty!

Tea bags!! To be exact, they are beauty tea bags (called Teaism) from My Life Inc!

After water, tea is the most popular beverage in the world. It is thought that tea was first discovered during the Shang dynasty in China, from 1600 BC to 1046 BC. Then with the trade routes in the 17th century, it traveled the world. And now it’s a worldwide phenomenon.

As we know, there is nothing like having a hot cup of tea to send your worries away. And sipping tea doesn’t only feel good, it is good—for your body. Studies have shown that chamomile can work as a antimicrobial and can help prevent blood clots, and that peppermint tea is a warrior in the fight against bacteria, allergies and viruses, and has plenty of antioxidants.

20130811-102719.jpg

TEAISM knows all about this. As a product of Eu Yan Sang, TEAISM combines heritage and innovation to deliver the most fragrant brew. TEAISM also believes that while life should be spent drinking delicious, all-natural, healthy teas, it should not be spent fussing with tea bags. Instead, TEAISM teas come in pencil-shaped, disposable, high-tech tea wands, eliminating the need for bags or teaspoons, because who has time for those? Each disposable wand contains high-grade tea leaves and is made of FDA-approved aluminum foil. It’s the most convenient way to achieve the same taste you would derive from high quality loose leaf teas. The future is here, and it’s nothing to be afraid of.

TEAISM is three things: healthy, functional, convenient. And many flavors: comfort, restore, protect, balance, energize. And many benefits: relieving nausea and dizziness, helping digestion and lowering flatulence, easing chronic pain, muscle aches and rheumatoid arthritis, anti-inflammatory, minimizes symptoms of common colds and allergies, improving overall immunity.

20130811-104324.jpg

We’re all busy but we’re never too busy for tea—TEAISM makes sure of that. Just add hot water, stir and enjoy.

20130811-104328.jpg

See, just this simple! Tea done and it taste good! Not those strong brew kind like Pu Er/Tie  Guan Ying but still its nice cuppa tea! BTW, this tea bag is “ENERGIZE: FANCY BLACK TEA” (orange tip bag).. It’s slight bitter and astringent taste, accompanied with a light roasted tea scent! Fancy black tea helps detoxification and gives u energy. It’s 100% black tea and contain caffeine..

The other bag that i have got is “RESTORE: OSMANTHUS OOLONG TEA” (pink tip bag). A tender fragrance and feel-good sensation—that’s what we get from this osmanthus flower and oolong tea infusion. Fragrant sweet scent that provokes your senses. Mild sweetness of osmanthus flowers and earthy taste of oolong tea combine together for a refreshing tea treat! I like it’s benefits! Antioxidant & Anti-aging!! It contains Oolong Tea, Osmanthus, Natural Flavor & caffeine.

So if you are allergy to caffeine.. i guess you;ll have to skip these..

20130811-104235.jpg
