Innisfree Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense Velvet

Woolala~

Back here to share my thoughts on this lip crayon that i’ve been wearing very often lately.

I’ve actually bought this off Qoo10 2 months ago, but seldom wear it, even though i LOVE the color. I’ve got the color Velvet red #16 and Let’s Kiss #7. But today, i will be just talking about the Velvet Red #16 since i prefer this to #7.

Texture wise, it’s velvety and smooth. Color payoff is really awesome and lasting as well. I used Revlon’s lip crayon (matte) before but it got really drying and dry patches on my lips were super obvious. Comparing Revlon to Innisfree, the latter definitely win hands down! It doesn’t dry my lips, applies smoothly and was a breeze to use! The color #16 is like dried rose, which was a very popular color in Korea during their fall/winter season. I don’t know why when i went korea in Oct last year, i didnt buy this shade, instead i bought #7. Oh. i think i know why. Bf was waiting too long, and i felt bad so i just chose a shade that looks nice and went off. haha so sad! Ladies, next time please go korea with your girlfriends if you are a makeup junkie. LOL!

I’m abit concern about the lid of this lip balm. Usually for this kind of transparent lid, i will either push it in too hard and it cracks, or i drop it and it cracks. So if it cracks, will the product dry up? Idk. So i’ve been verrrrry careful whenever i close the lid.

Swatch!

Erm, i blurred the corners of my lips, got tiny hairs down there so pls don’t mind ya. haha :>
I really love this shade so much! You can see, theres no dry patches, it felt like a lip balm instead of tint. Although this color made me looks abit mature, but i dont mind. All for beauty!! I also had to over-line my lip alittle cos erm, my lips are quite small. Otherwise, i will look even older!

Managed to find one full face pic with the lippies on!

Not sure if it’s obvious, but i’m definitely a matte lip person. But sad leh, my office ppl don’t really apply lipstick etc. Then i’m like the only one or few. Somemore i like bright colors! Then all my bright colored lippies are left in the drawer, dont know when can i start to use them. 😦 Collecting dust!

Ok, i’m done with sharing. sorry if it’s very simple. But it’s sharing,not review ya? 😀

Updates~

Peak period is over! I’m so glad! 

I’ve been getting really sleepy and tired eyes, which could be due to my uncorrected spectacles. haha is there such a word?? Anyway, it’s time for me to go for an eyesight test and get a new pair of spects. 

A very quick update on my life. Went to COMEX recently and purchased a Samsung Smart TV. TADA! Yay!!

So glad that i made this purchase together with Bro and Sis. hehe Now, Goh mama and Papa can watch more exciting shows with us! 

Have also been very, very, absolutely lazy with putting on make up. I don’t put on makeup at all during work. I know it’s not a big thing to many. But, I do suffer from very bad dark circles and eye bags. With these problems, i often appear as being ‘tired, sleepy’ looking, which is not attractive. But the main reason for leaving the house without my face painted on is just so that I could sleep longer hours. Okay, probably just that few more minutes of sleep. hahaha but hey! it does make a difference k!

So, while bf is out in Korea during the past few weeks, I met up with some friends over the weekend and dolled myself up with makeup! Yay!

Holika Holika Jewel-light waterproof Eyeliner

After waiting for two weeks, my eyeliners that i bought from Gmarket.com.sg has arrived! YAY!

Received it together with some other samples. Love buying from Gmarket cos they give such generous amount of samples! Thumbs up!

I got them in 3 colors, 08 (Pink topaz, with alot of glitters!), 01 (Black, with REALLY very tiny shimmers) and 05 (Brown with tiny bits of glitters but not overpowering).

Personally i really love 08. It can be used on the inner corner of the eyes to brighten it up.

While 05 has very subtle glitters that is suitable for everyday makeup. Needless to say, 01 is even more suitable for people who just want a simple eyeliner without grabbing too much attention since it feels matte to me.

From the pic above, 01 eyeliner has got glitters in it, but when applied, it doesn’t have any. Or maybe it was so subtle that i couldn’t spot any at all.

I have yet to try it on my eyes, so i’m not too sure about it being water proof. But im pretty sure it’s smudgeproof!

Okay, the middle is 05 brown. I tried rubbing it after applying about 5 secs later, which was too early. It hasn’t set yet, thats why there were trails of the brown. so i drew another line using 01 black, and let it set for about 10-15 secs, and TADA! It did not smudge at all!! Hurray!

But, since i havent tried applying it on my eyes, i don’t know how it will react with my oily lids. tsk.

Just one more thing. I was really upset that my 08 was kinda faulty. It was so soft and after opening it for the first time, this was what i saw. Obviously the tip somehow was broken. 😦

Alright. Need to mug.

Got this in my mailbox today. Finally received it, been waiting for about a week. I don’t really have much patience. 😀

this is just a smaller version(15g). I wanted to get VIP gold after watching how Kevin 老师 raved about this product on Beauty Queen. But it seems like VIP gold is suited for dry skin. I have combination skin! 😦 nvm then! at least there’s VIP gold in the samples! Lovely seller on gmarket! the seller is from Korea I guess, postage and all were written in Korean.

Skinfood Red Orange Jelly BB cream review

For today, i will be reviewing my long awaited item from korea, the Skinfood Red Orange Jelly BB Cream (SPF 20 PA++) in shade no. 2, Natural Beige.

Quoted from skinfood’s website:

This flexible jelly pudding BB cream contains moisture-rich revitalizing ingredients from orange to keep your skin ultra moisturized and to create a hydrated and jelly-like resilient skin with a smooth finish.

Jenny was so kind to help me buy some stuffs (mainly skincares and makeup) when she went to korea for holiday last december. I wasn’t able to get this in Singapore’s Skinfood retail outlets. THEY DID NOT BRING IN THIS RANGE!! WHY!  ~.~

Loads of samples were given, especially from skinfood. But i weren’t interested in the samples cos’ they are mostly the same hair products. Like, there were about 5 samples of the SAME hair wash. -.- Might give it away if anyone is interested, since i wouldn’t be using them. Oh, maybe i could use it when i’m heading to the pool for a swim!

Back to topic. I’ve been so looking forward to using the jelly bb cream ever since i watched THIS on youtube. I love her makeup tutorials, she seems like a very gentle and nice person from korea. Do check out her videos!

Well, the ingredients are all written in Korean. I know nothing about it cos i can only read Korean, but don’t understand it at all hahahaha! I suppose the ‘open here’ contains the English version of the product ingredients.

Alright, i don’t like the packaging because it is in a jar. I really don’t like digging my fingers in to get the product, especially if i have long nails(i usually keep my nails short btw), that is so unsanitary! Imagine those bb creams that got stuck in your nails!! Yucks! So, i used a spatula to scoop the product out on my hand. Or, another way would be to scoop out some amount and fill them into those sample jar!

It has SPF 20 PA ++, which means i can don’t wear sunscreen!! YAY for lazy people! I know we should use products of PA +++ (3 +++) to get the maximum protection. And i’ve never trusted those sunscreen properties in base makeup at all. Therefore, i still went ahead with a sunscreen before applying the bb to get maximum protection.

This jelly bb cream is so fun to play around with because of it’s jelly-like texture!

Love that it comes with a lid as well, so that it won’t be messy & disgusting if i were to bring it around in my makeup bag!

This is the best i could do to get the closet shade possible in real life. I have lousy camera, you see.. 😦

It looks like it’s gonna be so thick when applied, but trust me, it doesn’t! The warmth on your fingers just melts/blends the jelly onto your skin making it so easy to apply! It provides enough hydration for me, but yea, u have to apply quick so that it doesnt dry out too fast on ur face, making it difficult to blend it away.It doesn’t cover my pores as well as etude house’s bb cream. This, to me, it’s more like a tinted moisturizer instead of a bb cream. It has got low to medium coverage. But it’s buildable. I dont have much spots to conceal but still need concealors. Thus, don’t expect too much coverage from this bb cream if you have some hard-to-cover spots.For me, i’m doing fine with it since i don’t need much coverage.

NOTE: I got my BB cream in shade no. 2, which i think has a pink undertone in it! ugh. I’m a Mac NC 30 (studio fix powder), so it looks a little off on my face! But boyf said i looked fine. Maybe I’m too paranoid. sigh. I wanted shade no. 1 initially, but there was no stock! 😦 totally sucks when u have a good product but in a wrong shade! I’m contemplating to sell it away!! Should i???

Also, remember to cap it as soon as you’re done scooping it out from the jar. You don’t want to lose the hydration in the cream, especially with such humidity in SG!

The pros:
Blends really well
Hydrates like a moisturizer
FUN!
light consistency when applied

The cons:
wrong shade for me
low-medium coverage
Unsanitary
troublesome to scoop out the product
seems to accentuate my pores unless i exfoliate before applying :S

Alright, now it seems like there are more cons about this product than the pros. hahaha

Would i repurchase? : Maybe not. Unless im able to get it in the shade no.1 !

Next post would be the red orange sun powder, also from skinfood! yay!
