My Dual Blending Shadow Review..

This post is about Dual Blending Cushion Shadow by MISSHA. This is one of the makeup items I’ve purchased in Qoo10.sg (as always!) I looooove this cute brush! I love everything about it. It might be a bit expensive because you get only two colors with a price where in some brands you can get a palette with various colors. But this one got its own advantages especially if you don’t like bringing your whole makeup kit wherever you go. So here’s my review.

eyeshadow

Who is it for:

  1. If you are always on the go and want to do your makeup quickly
  2. If you always lose your eyebrow brush so you end up using your fingers instead (like me)
  3. If you have an eyeshadow palette but often use only two tones
  4. If you don’t like carrying too much makeup on your bag

What it claims (content from its product details):

  1. Dual Cushion Shadow allows for quick and easy blending to create a finished eye look
  2. Applies without fallout
  3. Cream to powder shadow applies softly, without stickiness
  4. Soft cushion tip allows for natural blending
  5. Create a gorgeous, gradient eye look with minimal effort

How to use:

  1. Before application, remove any moisture from eyelids with a tissue or powder
  2. Dispense product by twisting, and apply to the eyelids, blending the two colors as desired

My verdict:

  1. The look – It is a one eyeshadow brush which is kinda longer than normal. There are two tones that you can apply by switching on both sides of the cushion brush.
  2. The effect – It is quick to apply and blend which makes it very convenient for me.
  3. There’s no fallout as it claims, unlike the other brands I’ve tried before.
  4. Will I recommend it? – YES! Absolutely! Actually, I’m planning to buy more!

 

My Coloring Multi-Stick Review..

This is described as “Multi-sticks with built-in brushes for blending help to shape, contour, and define facial features”, which is true! I was surprised when I discovered this beautiful gem. I didn’t know it even existed! Well, I’m not a sucker for makeups so stuff like this really amuses me. I was so happy and excited when I saw this. I’ve read good reviews from those who actually use this product so that made me click on “Add to Cart” and purchased this. Here’s more.

multistick

Who is it for:

  1. If you are always on the go and want to do your makeup quickly
  2. If you don’t like carrying too much makeup on your bag

What it claims (content from its product details):

  1. Lively colors in a variety of shades for use as blush, highlight or contour
  2. Creamy texture adheres well to foundation without caking or clumping
  3. Built-in brush provides for easy, convenient blending

How to use:

  1. If you want to use it as a BLUSH: Apply on cheeks and cheekbones by tapping; blend out with the brush for a flushed, rosy cheek look
  2. If you want to use it as a CONTOUR:
  3. With a highlight shade, create dimension by applying color to the forehead, nose bridge, and collarbones
  4. With a contour shade, create the appearance of shadows by applying to the hairline, chin and décolleté
    Once you’re done applying, use the brush on the other side to blend it over your face

My verdict:

  1. The look – It is a one cute coloring multi-stick. I love its sweet smell. There are 10 colors you can choose from – Pure Milk Tea, Honey Peach, Peanut Brown, Sweet Mocha, Coral Dressing, Orange Cookie, Vanilla Sparkle, Sugar Powder, Bubble Dress, and Rosy Angel.
  2. The effect – It is like applying a lipstick with a brush to assist in blending it on your cheeks! My friends don’t really notice it. I think it’s because of too much blending.
  3. Will I recommend it? – YES! Absolutely! I want to buy more!

My Colourpop Lipstick Review..

I.LOVE.LIPSTICKS. That says it all. I can’t live without it. I can survive not putting any cosmetics on my face EXCEPT lipstick! At night I even apply lip balm to moisturize my lips. Hence this purchase!

My friend told me about this brand which sells a bunch of lippies, especially matte lipsticks. So we googled the website for Colourpop and then you know what happens next just by looking at the photo for this specific post. We’ve added 6 lippies to the cart and checked out! Days after a box of colourpop lippies are delivered to our doorstep.

Here’s a quick review about Colourpop’s Ultra Matte and Ultra Satin Lipsticks!

Who is it for:

  1. If you love lipsticks like me
  2. If you love everything about MAKEUP
  3. If you’re looking for matte lippies

What it claims (content from its product details):

For ULTRA MATTE LIPSTICK: “The boldest formula of our liquid lipsticks – in one smooth swipe, you’ll get the intense color payoff that dries down to a super matte, transfer-proof finish.”

You use it just like any regular lipstick! You twist and voila, there’s your lippie brush. Now go and enjoy it.

My verdict:

  1. The look – Its packaging is similar to a lip gloss stick.
  2. For the matte lippies, as it dries, it feels very dry. Good thing that it doesn’t stain my mugs/glasses as I drink. It doesn’t leave a kiss mark!
  3. For the satin lippies, LOVE how it make my lips gorgeous than ever. I love it!
    Will I recommend it? – YES! Absolutely! I want to buy moooore!

My Frida Kahlo Review..

For this blog post, I’m going to share a short review of The Original Tension Pact Perfect Cover that I’ve recently purchased from Qoo10.sg. I’ve always had big pores on my face so I wanted to try something that I can use to hide them. It’s been so long since I put anything on my face during day time. So, I tried. Here’s what I had to tell.

fridakahlo

Who is it for:

  1. If you have big pores
  2. If you have uneven skin
  3. If you love Frida Kahlo’s makeup collection

What it claims (content from its product details):

  1. A perfect cover to help make a flawless skin with advanced covering benefit and light adherence.
  2. Double layer cover helps make a flawless skin by covering skin flaws such as wrinkle, big pores, and freckles.
  3. Lasting cover powder and moisturizing ingredient help last makeup for 24-hours.
  4. Containing natural moisturizing ingredient, it protects moisture on the skin and covers flaw without feathering.

How to use:

  1. Make sure that your skin is clean and dry before applying it.
  2. Get appropriate amount onto makeup puff and apply by gently patting the face following skin texture.
  3. Spread and blend evenly.

My verdict:

  1. The look – It is in floral and girly cover case with Frida Kahlo written at the center.
  2. It is like a liquid foundation in a pressed powder packaging.
  3. The effect – It’s good. It covers my big pores and blemishes. I just don’t like it when my face becomes oily. It makes it look even shinier.
  4. Will I recommend it? – For those who don’t have too oily skin, YES. But for those who do, you might want to consider trying matte pressed powder/foundation.

My Laneige Lip Mask Review..

Hello loves! For this blog post, I’m going to share about my lip care. In my previous posts I’ve blogged about some lip balms that I’ve tried to deal with my dry lips dilemma. Somehow I find it hard to get rid of it ASAP so I googled and browse products that I can test to quickly resolve my lip problem. Then I found this cute lip balm which is one of the famous beauty products of the brand Laneige. So, here it goes.

  2. Hydrate dry lips
  3. Provides glossy look on your lips

How to use:

My verdict:

  1. I love the packaging of this product. It’s so pink! It’s so girly!

  3. My lips are moisturized. They’re not that dry anymore.

My Sephora Lip Scrub Review..

This post is about Sephora’s Honey Lip Scrub that was given to me by a sweet friend. I haven’t really notice the effect of this lippie so I can’t really tell if it’s a good product especially for those who are having the same dilemma that I have – dry lips. Anyway, read on my short review about it.

How to use:

My verdict:

  2. Will I recommend it? – Yes. Why not? It’s an affordable lip scrub from Sephora. Just make sure you don’t overuse it. It’s not recommended to ALWAYS exfoliate. Isn’t it?

My Glacial Clay Mask Review..

I’m a simple girl. I don’t usually put cosmetics on my face. Lipstick. Just lipstick. I don’t also use various skin care products because I have sensitive skin. Way back in high school I used to apply this whitening cream on my face but after some time I had skin allergy because of it. So I stopped. I decided to avoid facial care products that are out in the market and being advertised by celebrities.

Then I discovered Qoo10.sg where I can search various products with a lot of buyer reviews as well. Being a fan of anything Korean, I found myself checking out this beauty section with a lot of cosmetic brands which I find interesting. Then I saw something! A facial mask with numerous good reviews from the buyers who purchased and tried the mask. I added it to my cart as soon as I finished reading 80% of the customer feedbacks. I proceeded to pay and completed my order.

A few days later, it came. It is similar to a clay (which is why they name it like that, perhaps?) and it comes with a spatula that you can use to spread it to your face. It’s somewhat messy but I didn’t mind. So, here’s my review for Skin & Lab’s Dr. Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask (100 ml).

glacialclaymask

Who is it for:

  1. If you have acne-prone skin
  2. If you have large pores
  3. If you have oily skin
  4. If you want to maintain your good looking skin
  5. If you have acne-prone areas such as chest or neck

What it claims:

  1. Eliminates acne-causing skin waste and oil
  2. Strengthen the pore walls and tightens the pores
  3. Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Bacterial
  4. Firm up sagged, weak, and sensitive skin
  5. Balance the hydration level – no drying out

How to use:

  1. Wash your face with your facial cleanser
  2. Make sure that you dry your face before applying this product
  3. Apply enough amount of the mask (avoiding direct eye area)
  4. After 10 to 15 minutes rinse it off with warm water

My verdict:

  1. The look – it’s a green clay which is a bit sticky when touched
  2. The smell – clay? It’s not bad, though.
  3. The effect – perfect! After weeks of using it every night before going to bed, I noticed that I didn’t have breakouts or skin allergies while using it. The oiliness of my skin has lessened. My large pores are somewhat improved.
