Open your Eyes~

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” ~ Audrey Hepburn

Today, I’m gonna share with you something I’ve wanted to try. Thanks to Samplestore, I got the opportunity to try and share my review!! So what is it!??
*DRUMROOOOOOLL*
It’s…………….

Majolica Majorca Lash King Mascara + Perfect Automatic Liner #36 Limited Edition~!!

Are you as excited as me to try them!!? I’m sure I am!!

IMG_3774[1]

I like how they market/package their products. Made consumers (maybe just me >_<) feel like a royal~!

BTW, Majolica Majorca is one o the product line by Shiseido! Knowing it’s from Shiseido actually made me quite confident in whatever it claims to to! Just that I’ve always felt that I’m too old to be buying them off the shelf! Teenagers/Young adult seems to be their targeted market.. T_TI’m already in my final year of 20s!!!! Enjoy while it last~~!

20140701-194223-70943857.jpg 20140701-194224-70944195.jpg

Back to the mascara! Upon opening it, the first thing that caught my attention is ….

“WOW, Such long fibers!!?”

IMG_3808

This is the longest fiber I’ve seen among my stash of mascara! Just how long are they? 5mm!! Long and black! No wonder it’s called KING Lash!!

20140701-194224-70944549.jpg

King Lash is formulated with creamy wax and an increased amount of volume-increasing powder for superb lash adhesion and a clump-free and smooth finishing touch. It contains gentle treatment ingredients like Macadamia Nuts Oil & Vitamin E Derivative for your lashes.

That’s not all… The acrobat catch brush coats the lashes evenly and ensures excellent lash catching and separation effect.

Scrolling down, you’ll see more image of the mascara effect…

IMG_3806 IMG_3796

Without any mascara… Pardon those sleepy soul-less eye!

IMG_3800 IMG_3798

Here’s after applying the mascara!! Woot~! Lash lengthen!? YESH~ Look more alert?? Yesh! (There’ll be more image towards the end of post)

IMG_3803 IMG_3802

Here you can see how “volumize” it is in a single coat.. Applying it is not a problem.. Just start from the roots, apply while lifting upwards, in a zigzag motion. For lower lashes, keep brush upright and apply while moving tip of brush sideways. This is Lash King’s basic application method.

Next, I will be showing you the Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner #36 (Limited Edition)! The water-based dial-type eye liner that allows you to easily draw fine, delicate lines or thick, bold lines with its felt pen bristles. Entice with a shimmering pearl color
on your eye line!

20140701-194226-70946145.jpg

Basically, this is how it looks like before you start using….

20140701-194226-70946972.jpg

Eh! eyeliner leh??

LOL~ Don’t gan jiong (panic)!! It’s inside the cap..

20140701-194228-70948598.jpg

*remove the pink ring*

20140701-194227-70947826.jpg

*close it back” (you should be able to feel a click..)

20140701-194229-70949423.jpg

And ta-daaaa~~ Here you go (that’s why u have to remove the pink ring)~!

The Perfect Automatic Lineris formulated with super fix polymer to give clear and long-lasting eye lines, which is very resistant to perspiration, skin oils and tears. Achieve dewy eyes by drawing on the lower lid or a shimmery effect by drawing on the upper lid.

IMG_3826

How to get the “ink” out? Just turn the back of the eyeliner (where my right hand is holding)..

20140701-194234-70954149.jpg 20140701-194234-70954983.jpg

Some smudge-proof test? I drew 1 “coat” of the liner (most bottom line) then follow by two “coat” and then 3 “coat (top most).. I swipe my finger across almost immediately and I guess you can see the result..

The 1-coater is already dry by the time I’m drawing mt 3-coater.. The3-coater takes a slightly longer time to dry but still once its dry, it’s pretty smudgeproof/waterproof already..

Pls pardon me for not having swatches of it on my eye.. For some reason, the moment i dew them on my eyelid, i felt the sensitive pain on my eyelid and had to remove them immediately. I don’t know is it because I’m sensitive to any ingredient in it or just me eye being anti-social that day. But nonetheless, I’m gonna show you how waterproof these two products are!!

20140701-194231-70951117.jpg

So here’s the mascara and the eyeliner… Yup, it’s dry already..

20140701-194231-70951493.jpg

and then I *RUB RUB RUB RUB RUB*

20140701-194231-70951866.jpg

SEEEE!! They just won’t leave you~!!! After rubbing so hard and they’re still visible, I believe they’re gonna stay whole day on your eyes man (you won’t be rubbing your eyes so hard anyway, am I right??)

20140701-194232-70952240.jpg

Since they are sooo stubborn, will it be very difficult to remove??

20140701-194232-70952607.jpg

Not really actually… I used my regular makeup remover water, press and hold for about 30 seconds and the eyeliner is gone. Mascara is still a little stubborn..

20140701-194232-70952987.jpg

I think removing the mascara is more tidious.. It’s super water proof that I had to used my gel makeup remover and slowly remove them..

eye002

Ok, so here’s my look with the King Lash Mascara!! I like how it actually lengthen my lashes and stay neat whole day long! The only thing I will hesitate buying it is … it’s too stubborn to remove and it doesn’t really curl your lashes unless u have prep your lashes beforehand… T_T Guess when u’re at my age, time is precious… LOL!!

The Little Black Beauty Box X Tangs !!

Are you aware that The Little Black Beauty Box has changed partner?

Yup, it’s no more Robinson but Tangs! Oh well, to me, as long as it continue to bring in new/interesting/amazing samples for its subscribers, I don’t really care who’s the partner. Of course, the price must be justifiable! LOL..

So today, I proudly presents my first Tangs x LBBB ! Quite happy with my new LBBB!

20140622-131215-47535720.jpg

But before i go further, I have to apologise!! All images that you are gonna see here, the color is a bit “cool”.. It looks totally fine on my cam but somehow when I transferred them to my iPhone and upload them here.. hmm… colour runs?

Anyway, I had tried my best to adjust the color to as true as possible but.. oh well.. bear with it!

20140622-131216-47536205.jpg

Ain’t you excited to seeeee so many goodies in a lil box like this!? Looks like they have hunt for variety of samples for us.. From skin care to hair care to makeup to fragrance! Wow~ How thoughtful!

I will not be going through every single item in my box but still I will show you picture of it..

First thing that caught my attention is….  BELIF! For the first time I actually see one sample box includes a decent travel size of Belif product! Best part, this is the cleanser that I would usually get when I wanted Belif!

20140627-145148-53508746.jpg

This cleansing foam uses a foaming action to softly wash away impurities from your skin. Formulated with Soapwort, Sweet Flag and Wormwood to remove toxins, this cleansing foam produces clean skin without dryness after washing.

Soapwort, rich with vitamin C and natural foaming agents, cleanses the skin gently. It has been used instead of soap for centuries. Sweet Flag, has appealed to women for generations, is known to make hair and skin beautiful, silky and smooth. Wormwood, possesses breakout-prevention properties and excels at removing toxins.

The other 2 Belif products are sachet masks pack..

20140622-131349-47629158.jpg

The next item here I think there’s no need to further explained! It’s so popular even my mom knows about it.. Yup, It’s Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX..

20140627-145149-53509242.jpg

Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Total V Contouring Serum

20140627-145149-53509705.jpg

This is better than the face lifting cream from Bioessence, IMO.. This doesn’t give me a TIGHT feeling and doesn’t feel heavy for my skin.. Most importantly, you can see result!

Guerlain Foundation

20140622-131518-47718339.jpg

Guerlain invents the most perfect second skin: Lingerie de Peau. This intangible foundation becomes one with the skin like a second sensual covering to make it more beautiful than ever. Its secret: the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibres and natural linen and silk fibres in complete affinity with the skin. The foundation glides on like a silk stocking. The “little nothing” becomes everything…

20140622-131518-47718833.jpg

Sublimely transparent, the complexion becomes as soft and radiant as silk. The curves of the face are tightened and imperfections are erased. The nine shades of the range are so skin-fusing and natural that they leave no visible colour on the face, simply a glowing, long-wearing tone that leaves the skin looking natural. Regular size Lingerie de Peau is about 30ml pump bottle and has SPF 20 – PA+. Though not the strongest sun protection but better than nothing!

20140622-131519-47719358.jpg

20140622-131519-47719815.jpg 20140622-131520-47720256.jpg

Overall, looks quite natural on my skin and doesn’t feels very thick.. Shall update here again when I tried them out on my face some day!

I’ve got an exactly the same kit from one of the sample box previously.. Haven’t got the chance to use so can’t comment much about it too.. LOL!

20140622-131522-47722403.jpg

To end this post, here’s a quick look of the LBBB voucehers! Some of it are quite worthy leh!

BONUS image (maybe not):

July LBBB!

20140629-134326-49406778.jpg

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. Skin is clinically firmer, smoother and more lifted-looking. And with continued use, results improve. What will nature think of next.

Best of all, any skin type is suitable for this!

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.
  • Skin feels smoother, hydrated & stronger – 82% of women felt their skin was immediately hydrated.
  • 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

Moisturizing Gel from Clinique for combination oily to oily skin types.

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!

LaMer’s Moisturizing Cream (Crème de La Mer) 

Born from the sea, the legendary Crème de la Mer has the power to transform the skin. In a short time, firmness improves, lines, wrinkles and the look of pores become less visible, skin looks virtually ageless. Even the driest complexions are renewed and rejuvenated. With the nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™, the heart of La Mer’s profound powers of transformation, skin is immersed in moisture, sensitivities soothed, radiance restored.

The Miracle Broth™ in Crème de la Mer is suspended in an extraordinary formula. The secret to activating its renewing power and enjoying its profound benefits lies in a soothing ritual.

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

My stash of… Mascara!

20131103-235357.jpg

Hi Hi! Familiar with the above pic? Yes you should if u had read my previous post about (my fave) eyeliners. I had plans to share my makeup stash with you over a period of time.. this week, it’s gona be my EYE OPENING Mascara~

20131109-031229.jpg

Here’s my family of mascara! Yes, this is too much for it’s life span but who cares!! I need different effect mascara for different occasion! Don’t you?? (ehem.. just excuses to get more mascara!)

The newest wand to the mascara family is ….

Catrice Waterproof Mascara

20131109-014359.jpg

What I like: Affordable! Lashes doesn’t stick together with blink.

What I don’t like: It has nothing special.

20131106-114731.jpg

How it look: Look decent for normal days. Not much lengthening or volume effect.

20131104-234840.jpg

20131104-234935.jpg

How did I get to know: During a one of Essence warehouse sales, I bought it to try..

Will I buy again: No.

CYBER COLORS – Ex Volume

cc

20131109-014354.jpg

What I like: Not only it give reasonable volume effect, it helps lengthen my lashes too! It doesn’t clump together easily and will not stick together when you blink.

What I don’t like: It’s not available everywhere, exclusively at SaSa. but luckily, SaSa is everywhere! LOL..

20131106-114749.jpg

How it look: The brush is unlike those “bushie” bristle but it can really gives me length & volume! It’s not sticky and it’s waterproof too! Make me look bright and alert at all time.

20131106-114806.jpg

Can see the difference from the previous mascara? I have longer lashes here and they seems to be thicker too..

Great option for dates!

20131106-114814.jpg

20131106-114821.jpg

How did I get to know: I can’t remember, but this is probably in one those surprise box I subscribed to.

Will I buy again: Definitely will consider this when my mascara stock is running low..!

CYBER COLORS – Curl Mascara

20131109-031206.jpg

What I like: No other mascara can give the kinda of volume this mascara gives!

What I don’t like: Don’t have those bushy brush.. 😦 It looks more like a comb – Maybe that’s why it can volumized our lashes so much!

20131112-214858.jpg

How it look: After my first application, I was dumb! This “hairless bristle” gave me great volume! My eye can look bigger even without eyeliner (though below pics are with eyeliners)!

20131112-214913.jpg

Look at the volume it gave me (Sorry if it looks clumpy to you, this is my oldest mascara in my collection!!)! Although it couldn’t give me much length but I’m pretty happy with the bombastic volume already!

 

20131112-214922.jpg

How did I get to know: Window shopping kills! SaSa promoter highly recommend this wonder wand to me! I was kinda reluctant to but a hairless wand because I don’t believe it will give my what I want.. Well, guess I was wrong..

Will I buy it again: Yes if it is still available! Bought this at about S$22..

K-PALETTE – 1 Day Lash Perm!

20131109-031223.jpg

What I like: If I know I’m gonna have a long day and need to stay fresh and look alert, this is definitely my MUST USE makeup! It last you the whole day!

20131112-214737.jpg

The brush is pretty “compact” as compared to Catrice Waterproof mascara. The little curve on the brush makes application along the inner eye lash easier! Now I can have thick lashes not only on the outer end of my eye but also the inner end!

20131112-214758.jpg

Another thing I like about this mascara is that it is not sticky. When I blink, my lashes won’t keep sticking to each other and I had to open my eye extra wide to “pull them apart”!

20131112-214823.jpg

20131112-214843.jpg

What I don’t like: NOTHING!

How it look: Like what u seen above, it looks great the whole day! The super power waterproof effect is amazing! After one whole day of hard work, this mascara shows no sign of smudging at all! No gothic look! No dark eye ring! HAHAHAHA!! They stay like how they are when you first apply them!!

You must be wondering why do I keep saying about eye lash sticking together when I blink right? Because one of the L’Oreal mascara I have gave me this problem! Though it can give me curling effect but it’s too tacky. I have to open my eyes hard to not let my lashes stick together. I suppose the stickiness is what makes the mascara able to give u curling effect??

20131109-031211.jpg

Yeap, this is the one.. Curl Impact Collagene. I have no picture to show you because I seldom use this anymore as it’s too tacky & since I have got my new (& better) love, I can continue to keep this in my stash until it expires..

20131109-031217.jpg

This was the “IN-est” mascara when I bought it! It promise to give you length, volume, texture & curl! But apparently I think it only gave me texture.. Curling effect, the above mascara is better! Volumized effect, Cyber Colors did better! Lengthening? Cyber Colors did better tooo!

Overall, I think K-palette & Cyber Colors mascara are pretty worth investing!! A little more costly but definitely worth it!

Last but not least, since we’re on this topic “Mascara”, below is a quick tip i saw on FB. Hope it will be useful for you~!

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!

“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!
20130809-052511.jpg
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!
20130809-053039.jpg
20130809-053046.jpg
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!!

Check out brandbox.sg and blackbox.sg to get your FREE box today!

Japalang Beauty Bazaar Sales!

No woman can resist SALE!! I’m one of those who can’t!! It’s my 死穴 (lethal point).. Sale is a good time/chance u can grab something that u usually will not! Why not?? well, probably because its too ex? Or probably u’ve not used it before so not confident in that product? Or maybe ………. nevermind!! I believe pricing is the main reason! Hahaha!

JPL Sale!! Good thing is, it’s pretty near my place so going to 9@Tagore isn’t a big problem!!

The problem comes only when I’m in the building…
20130706-235527.jpg

Yes, thank you JPL for the lift label.. But …. still very scary when i stepped out of the lift although i know I’m at the right place.. Facing all white walls and I start to wonder where is the door to the “office”!?? (This is not horror movie right??)

I think it will be helpful if they had paste some directional signs for idiot like me.. (Maybe the management didn’t allow?) I dono about you but I was really freak out for about 2 mins before I try the door which I first thot is a carpark! And it turns out to be….. really a carpark… cum offices! Seriously the management floor plan at the lift was not helpful at all (for people who has not been there)!! T_T
20130706-235551.jpg

I reached kinda early, like (erm) 11:15am?? JPL staffs are all still packing and moving stuffs.. There is this lady whom i didn’t get her name, gave us (early birds) a friendly smile and thank us for coming down (so early) – lol!

About 11.30am, she walked to us with a bottle of juice and this time, she tell us that the sale will start in another 10-15 mins time!!! Yeah for the prompt update!!!! Yeah again for the juice – it’s not some alibaba juice ok!!

20130707-213425.jpg

20130706-235615.jpg

(everyone gathering for a final briefing before opening for business)
20130707-000217.jpg

(“HUAT AH!!” they sounds really into this event!! Goood one!)

Ok.. I will skipped the shopping part and jump straight to conclusion!
20130707-000328.jpg

I had an awesome time at the sale! Every counter had a staff waiting to serve u and answer to all your questions! Staff will promote their products yet doesn’t hard sell – no stress! They know their product well too!

Did buying without stress cost me more damage?? YES it did!!! “Sale” plays a part – BIG part!!!

See what I’ve bring home!!
20130707-000336.jpg

Masks.. Foot detox patch.. Mascara.. Essence.. Shampoo.. Treatment.. Shall we look at them individually now?

20130707-182055.jpg

SexyLook Hello Kitty Moisturizing & Whitening Rose Mask!! Seriously I’m not a HK fan but this ain’t gonna stop me from getting a good mask! Non-HK lover, don’t worry, you won’t look like HK when you’re doing your mask. Neither will you look like one when you’re done. It’s just marketing business, HK is a trend!

I tried this mask quite some times back and i like it and here i am grabbing more mask!! The rose scent is very soothing and the mask is really “well-marinated” in its essences! After placing the mask on my face, the essence will secretly roll down my chin to my neck minutes later – i had to pat the essence on my neck so that they get absorbed and not wasted while I’m masking! About 15-20 mins later, remove mask and gently message your face (& neck) in circular motion to get the essence penetrate through your skin! I pat them at time so that they can get in faster! =X (gently pat, not slap!)

And what’s better? Sale, of course! 3 boxes for $10 (UP: $9.90 per box if i didn’t hear wrongly from Doris (one of JPL staff)!! It’s almost like buy 1 get 2 FREEE! And u know what? I not only purchased 3 boxes, I was given a box for free too – won in the lucky draw after my payment!! That’s not all!!! Every customer gets a door gift too and I bet u know what is it.. (Yes..) a HK mask!

In total, it’s almost like $10 for 21 pcs (for me case)!!!! -faint-

20130707-182100.jpg

Next in the bag, masks from Morilins!!! This is definitely another good buy!!! 3 for $10 (UP: $9.90 per pcs)!! Ain’t that too good to be true!??! Although I only bought 3 but trust me, I’m already regretting for not getting more now! Why did I not grab the eye mask too!? Shucks!

Review will be updated after i tried! Meantime, carry on reading.. 🙂

Now open your eyes BIG! Coming up next is mad crazy sale item!!!

20130707-182114.jpg

Belif Hungarian Water Essence!! I’m using Belif products now and this essence sale came at the right time!! (I was still planning to grab them at belif store if I happen to pass by one! And now…. Mwahahahaa!! Call me lucky!!!!

This Hungarian Water Essence is a very light weight transparent essence. slightly heavier than water/toner only. It gets absorbs very quickly and and your skin can almost immediately feel moisten! Plus it does not feel sticky too! *thumbs up up up* You can read up my previous post on Belif Product HERE!

Let me share with you the retail price first before i disclose the GREAT SALE PRICE i paid for!!

At Belif store: $57! Even after greatest discount, it still cost me $49!20130707-224945.jpg

At Beauty Carousal: $66.90!20130707-225924.jpg

And for how much did I grab this 2 bottles?? $59! Not 1 but 2! TWO(2) for $59!! It’s so unbelievable till I even asked the staff “why so cheap!!?” (I feel so dumb at that instant!)

But nevermind, since they don’t know me!! LOL.. let’s continue!

20130707-182554.jpg

K-Palette Real lasting Eyeliner and 1 Day Lash Perm Long Curl Mascara!!

Eyeliner first! This is a waterproof liquid liner that has won several awards!!

20130707-231056.jpg 20130707-231113.jpg

How can u not be tempted to get one?? Discount is not a lot for this.. $16 for 1 eyeliner (UP: $19.90)?

As my shopping bag gets heavier, my mind starts to get lighter…! I can’t think anymore!!! So just grab!!!

Next is this wonderful mascara! At this sale event, you can get it at $21 (UP: $25.90 I think) Yes, not very much good deal but still.. (like i said) at that moment I already lost my mind!! Everything is “sale! grab! sale! grab!” ROFL!

Update on 8 Jul: Images below shows the mascara I wear in the morning before heading to work!

20130708-214916.jpg

20130708-214951.jpg

fresh and clean look ya?

20130708-215937.jpg

20130708-215952.jpg

20130708-220905.jpg

(My long lash!!!!)

After almost 8hrs (it’s 2pm++ now), totally no sign of smudge nor “gothic” look! Still clinging to my lashes nicely!

Btw, before i applied my mascara, i used my eyelash curler to curl my lashes a little and until now my lashes are still curled! What does this shows? The mascara is good or the eyelash curler is better? I’ll snap some pic when i get home (5 hours later!)

8pm: Now that I’m home, my mascara is still smudge proof! No black tears no black shadow! You see!!

20130708-220954.jpg

20130708-221003.jpg

(I’m super loving this pic!!! See my eye!! I have dbl eye lid!!!! No glue no sticker ok!! Hahaha! This is call tired-eyelid! When my eye lid gets tired, it SAG and with a little push it will become a few-seconds-dbl-eye lid!)

20130708-221008.jpg

20130708-221153.jpg

20130708-221209.jpg

(Some side views to show you my extended lash with mascara)

This is really smear proof smudge proof waterproof!! And I think… I’M LOVING IT!!

There’s a newer version of this mascara which is “volume curl mascara”. Both have very good review if you do a simple google search.

20130707-182916.jpg

By K-Palette, here’s another goodie! Overnight Eye Mask! This deal is $10 for a pair and $14 for 2 pair (twin pack)! If u buy 2 packs of twin pack eye mask, it’s even cheaper!! But erm… I forgot how much it is..

20130708-001213.jpg

20130708-001225.jpg

(Image grabbed from K-Palette fb page)

I’m using it now (yes, its bed time already) and probably will update you guys how is it when I’m ready!!

Update on 8th Jul: I have difficuly falling aslp!! I feel so uncomfy having something around my eye… i flip and turn until 3am, i decided to wake up and re-position my eye mask, this time, a little distance from my eye.. and… yes, i fell aslp. I guess i placed it too near my eye (lash line).. I’m not sure if my eye bags are gone… but i know i gained a sleep line. the patch caused a sleep line on my face (sign of aging #101: sleep line takes a long time to recover!!)

20130708-214655.jpg

Will i continue to use this mask? OF COURSE – at least until this pcs wear out!! According the the staff, this mask can be reused for 3 months – as long as u keep it clean/hygiene!! After that i may not continue..

OKAY! Get ready once again to see the star product in my shopping list!

20130707-181930.jpg

The Essence of Nature foot detox patch!! This is the MAIN MAIN MAIN reason I’m here actually! To grab this foot patch!!

The UP for this box (7 pairs) is $29.90!! Now they are selling for… “Drumroll please!!”

*drumroll*

$20 for 2 box!!!!! No they’re not expired goods nor defect patch!! They’re selling at such low cost is because the box (packaging) is dented/damaged!!!!

There are new type of foot patch available too, ie: rose sap patch, eucalypts patch, warm sap patch, forest sap patch! But these new type is $21 per box! They sell individual pack too.. 1 pair for $4, 4 pairs for $10!! So I bought 4 pairs of rose sap patch too!

You can read my previous post HERE on the lavender foot patch I got from Vanity Trove.. I will be doing the rose sap patch soon!

Below are some benefits summary I’ve grabbed for The Essence of Nature Fb page! If you are keen to find out more, give them a like HERE and you will receive their first hand news update!!

20130707-181948.jpg

 

Update from daddy (9 July 2013): after using for 3 days, daddy said he feels lighter (when walking)! Sleep well and doesn’t feels tired easily the next morning! Best part is that he can shit without much difficult now (OMG, he already been a very regular toilet supporter and now.. hard core fan! LOL)

20130707-181954.jpg

(i think lavender is their all-time favourite/hot seller!)

20130707-182003.jpg

Last but not least…….. Below is a “last-minute-out-of-my-shopping-list” item I grabbed at the cashier counter because I’m still short of $3 to give me extra chance of lucky draw!

20130707-183504.jpg

Rêveur!! Understand from JPL that this is a silicon free shampoo and quite a hooha in Japan!

Rêveur’s unique formula of fine and well-foamed bubbles reduces the friction against the hair. This effectively avoids the common problem that non-silicone shampoo faces, which is to cause hair to be rough due to the lack of silicone.

20130707-234833.jpg

I tried it today and erm… Sorry, I dono if its because I’ve too much hair or the sachet has too little shampoo for me… I can’t seems to lather much foam. Is it because it doesn’t have silicon?? I don’t know. Seems like it’s not my cuppa tea.. But surprisingly when my hair is dry, it does feels more tame and less frizzy. My only problem is that the shampoo does not lather enuff foam for me to feel like i’m shampooing my hair..

Conclusion, this is one great sale event that I will look forward to again next year!!! Good buy & good products! Stay tune and I’ll update this post with review again..

PS: Pardon my typo for now! I’m tooo slpy to proofread anything. I will tidy up this post soon! Good night and cya soon!!!!
