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.

Lush

I’m down to the last cube of ‘Honey I washed the kids’ lush soap, so I had to go down to wisma and some new stocks. Poor bf couldn’t stand the different scents in the shop. LOL.

I’ve only tried Honey I Washed The Kids (HIWTK), and I’m madly in love with its scent! Oh-my-gosh! it has this sweet caramel fragrance and if i could, I would have swallowed this whole soap down so that its scent remains in my mouth. hahaha. kinda sick though.

this is my last chunk of the soap, need to buy more.

well, the only thing I don’t like abt this soap was that it’s too dry! I don’t know, I’ve read reviews abt how moisturizing it was for them, but when I used it, I could feel my skin was dry and tight. Maybe cos I’m not used to using soap. I have always been using shower gel instead. BUT, the scent! it was so captivating that I kept grabbing for it in the shower even though it dries my skin. It does lather up well, especially when it’s in a bigger chunk. Once it gets smaller, it gets difficult for it to lather up. But again, if u want it to lather up really well, use a loofa with this, a little goes a longggggg way.
As for the honeycomb, I find it kinda useless though. it doesn’t lather up, and feels scratchy on the skin. so, I usually just put it aside as it drops off from the soap very easily.

The scent lasted for about 2hours on my skin. Everytime I step out of the shower room, I couldn’t stop sniffing myself. Even in my room( I kept my soaps in my rm ), I would hold it up and sniff it like a drug addict. haha! That’s really crazy!

I had wanted to get a bigger size, but thought I should try out other samples first!

these were the samples given.

20120318-003531.jpg
those 3 small samples behind. haha.

I asked for something more moisturizing, that doesn’t give me that tight skin everytime I wash off the soap. So, I was given Porridge, Figs and Leaves, and Sultana of Soap.
so looking forward to use them! ❀

Etude House Kissful Tint Chou and nail polishes haul

I’ve been so crazy about lip tint recently… was meeting few of my friends on Tuesday, and went into Γ©tude house after having dinner. etude house is having 30% discount off all products at the bugis outlet, not sure of other outlets though. so we went in and bought quite a number of nail polishes! hehe

And on wednesday, I was at bugis with bf and I went into etude house(AGAIN), never ending! haha alright, and I finally bought these lip tints!

20111028-143313.jpg
I’ve been wanting to buy them and try since very long ago! since there was a disc, I thought I should just spend the money! hiak hiak!
I bought them in 02 and 03. 02 is a pinkish girly kind of pink, while 03 is a strawberry pink! I bought two cos I thought of doing a combination. the 02 can be applied all over my lip to even out my two tones lip, then apply 03 to just the inner centre of my lip to give that youthful, awake feeling!
and I absolutely love them!! doesn’t dry out my lips, pigmentation is abt 8/10.. love it! but my lips have been having some allergies from before, so I couldn’t wear them so often. 😦

I don’t know what am I allergic to man, I haven’t been putting on any lip products lately as well.. might be something I ate. D: that would be very sad, cause’ I love eating!!! I also bought a lip balm which is now following me everywhere I go!

totally heart this as well! maybe because it’s fragrance and preservative free, or maybe because of it’s super hyaluronic acid and collagen content, it makes my swollen lip SO much better!!! now my lip doesn’t look so angry anymore! and cost only $6+, cheap! doesn’t have that jelly smell like what I’ve experience when I use vaseline/nivea. at least, I can kiss bf now! haha!!

hopefully my lip will heal ASAP so I can apply these lovely liptints! πŸ™‚

Essence of beauty Brush set

I’ve just received my Essence of Beauty Brush set from Cleo who sold it at sg_beauty. It’s something that i’ve been wanting to get, but didnt have the chance, or sometimes i was just lazy to join spree in getting it. So, i was thrilled when i saw someone selling it brand new at $20. I’m not sure if it’s considered cheap, but $20 for 3 dual ended brushes, it’s worth it!

Lousy quality picture. πŸ˜›

Have yet to get the chance to use it. But i feel that im not impressed with the powder brush bristles. I mean, they were just slightly scratchier than the other 5 of them. All of them are of amazing textures! Especially the foundation and concealor brush.

Also, other than these brushes, i’ve got some other loots as well!

Hehehehehe! Boyf is gonna KILL me when he sees these. I told him i need to save money though………………………

First up!

Narcissus Total Defense Fundamental Serum:
I simply LOVE this product so much! I apply this for my night time skincare regime. It’s of a very light texture that gets absorbed pretty fast. I followed up with hada labo lotion and my moisturizer. But i do noticed there were 1-2 pimples popping out, guessed it’s purging, i’ll let my skin get used to it then! But i really love this. It made my face just so smooth! ❀

Will definitely repurchase this again! Meanwhile, i’m also having thoughts of buying other Naruko’s skincare product. hehe!

Next is this: Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Sand Medium 0-1

i’ve read so much reviews about this product for it’s oil controlling factor. So i thought, I MUST GET THIS! I have normal-combination skin. Oily on the T-zone area. Right now, im using this on top of my Etude house Precious Mineral BB cream. Well… I wouldn’t say this product is fantastic. It doesn’t control the oil that much. I applied makeup around 6.45am and headed to school, by 10am i noticed there’s oil on my nose already! πŸ˜₯ Super sad that it’s not as great as what others had experienced! Maybe i shall give it a few more chances la.. I really hope this works for me.

Oh and Lastly, it’s the hair straightener, i did not take picture of it though. It’s good. Cheap, $10.80 incl postage. Bought it off from gmarket sg. It gets heated up VERY fast, but i dont really use it cos….Β  i want a heat protectant spray. I’m eyeing on the TRESemme’s. I join the drugstore spree and found that IT CANT BE SHIPPED!!! D: Even more sad!!! Sigh……

Whatever the case is, i’m happy with my loots! πŸ˜€
