Long make up post

As promised, a very delayed update ahahaha… I’m so lazy.  But this will be quite a long one..

My sis got back from her holiday a little while ago and she bought me some goodies!!! So happy!!

I got some more Sasatinnie mascara and a Kiss Me Heroine Make eyeliner pen (best eyeliner in my opinion, no smudge even with no base and easy to remove).

I received my first Jill Stuart palette!!! This was from the Illuminance eyes range in Layered Gem 07

This palette was probably one of the more boring but safer colour combos.  The middle two colours look like a pink brown combo, but it actually shows up a more pinky purply, not sure why.

Pros:

  • Really pretty and sturdy package
  • Very shimmery, very bling
  • Fun to play around with the colours.  The colours look light, but actually make a nice smokey look.  Can mix and match with other E/S to give a different finish
  • Silky smooth texture

Cons:

  • Not sure if this is a con, but it has this flowery scent.  Some would say it is pleasant, but to me it steers more towards the powerful side.
  • Fallouts, a lot
  • Not 100% convinced, I definitely don’t love it. The colours didn’t really pop like I expected them to.  Nevertheless, I love using it for mix and matching, it’s so bling!

Will I buy again? I think I would, but only if they came in more interesting colours.  I only have my eyes on the Crystal Ruby palette from the newest range for now.

The Skin Shop BB cream SPF37 PA+++ 50g

My sister picked this out for me.  Such a good pick!

  • Great neutral colour match
  • Creamy consistency, easy to blend
  • Sheer-medium coverage (I think it has potential to build coverage)
  • Dries to matte finish
  • No skin irritation
  • Does not smudge off easily, quite waterproof as well.  I washed my hands with detergent and it stayed put.
  • No smell
  • Great package.  Looks so similar to Skin79 super BB cream ahhaah but I think this better, no greyness.
  • SPF 37 PA+++ I love sun protection 🙂

My sis found these Hair poofer velcro things.  They came in a pack of three.

You’re supposed to be able to just stick these things in your hair and just walk out the house with it still in there.  I’m not daring enough ahah.. I did do it once when I forgot about it, and by the time I remembered I was at the shopping centre so I couldn’t exactly pull it out lol.  No one noticed though 🙂 I use it like normal rollers now.

Sana Covercom Powder SPF 50+ PA+++ all those ++++++’s!!

Finally collected my face powder from Joey.  I was so late in getting it from her >< But it was good to catch up when we did, while at Buddha Fest!!

The lighting is a bit dark so this is not their true colour.  I put the Covercom next to my Bihadashi, both in the lightest colour they come in (light beige).  They look the same, feel similar, coverage is around the same.  I think what stands out to me is Covercom’s puff! It’s so puffy!!! Love it 😀 and all those ++++’s!! I’m sold lol

Today’s mini haul.  Cheapest haul ever!!!!

Nak dry shampoo.  This is Australian made 🙂

Ricky was reading some blogs and came across dry shampoo so he suggested it to me.  The girl wrote that it gives hair texture.  I tried it, and it relaxes my hair, but doesn’t add texture ahah.. It feels softer afterwards and actually feel refreshed too 🙂 Maybe I need to have dirtier hair for it to add texture.  It sprays on as a powder and you brush it out after waiting for 2 minutes.  Smells good too.  On the exi side though – AUD$19.95.  Ricky, there is no such thing as a cheap deal in Australia.. the cheapest one there was still $15 😦

EVAS Elevee BB cream SPF36 PA++ 50g

You can’t really see the blending.  But it actually does provide some coverage, just not sure why it didn’t show up.

I was walking past Elizabeth Arcade today and saw a new Korean shop open!! I had to go in and take a look.  It’s mostly accessories but at the back I saw these BB creams and skin products.  Thought it would be at least AUD$40 but OMG this was only $5.95 after a 10% discount!  I had to get it O.o

  • Creamy
  • Good neutral colour match, similar to TSS, no greyness
  • Not waterproof, washed off easily with detergent
  • Sheer coverage, buildable
  • Although it’s creamy, it doesn’t seem to blend that well.  You have to be careful when applying because it can get flaky
  • Still need to see if it will irritate my skin.  I don’t have much hopes for this BB cream since it was so freaken cheap!! But it’s a bonus if it gives me a good outcome 😀
  • Dries matte, but feels more moisturizing than TSS.

Castledew Over Setting Gloss in colour 9

Got this as well for only AUD$5.85 after 10% discount!  So freaken cheap!!!! They didn’t even try to rip the Aussies off with cheap Korean products!!  Tempted to buy more colours before they decide to raise the prices eheheheh…

I still don’t know what colour suits me.  This is a bright pinky orangey red.  Shows up darker on my lips with a red tinge.  I still don’t know whether I suit lighter, orangey or pinky tones.  I guess, I can only experiment to know!! BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA  This stuff smells nice and fruity too 😀

I am quite happy with my very cheap splurge.  I feel satisfied, without any guilt!  I love cheap finds! AHAHAHAHAHA

      Hihi, I got my latest one from the new korean shop in eliz arcade, used it today and noticed its quite drying.. but doesn’t seem to be irritating my skin 🙂 The other one was from HK, and previous one was from the internet.

    Haha Miriam I have never seen so many SPF+++++++ in my life. That is amazing.

    Where did you get the dry shampoo? I’ve been trying that Klorane stuff for years but it’s probably not as effective on my hair as it is on other people’s hair because my hair tends to get very oily at the roots very quickly; and if I wash my hair every day it gets too dry. Very annoying.

      hihi!!! I saw that Klorane one and was so close to getting it!! should have talked to u earlier lol I went to Price Attack, but they only have around 5 types. Can’t say I like the one I bought too much though, the powder doesn’t brush out very well =.= keep me posted if you find something better 🙂

      The Jill Stuart palettes are around $60 AUD. They are pretty nice and shimmery, just wish they wouldn’t make so many boring pink palettes >< More interested in Lunasol now. If you think about it it's actually cheaper than western department brands like chanel and dior that are like.. $100, but quality and colour is way better!

        oops didn’t see the last part ahah… used nars before, but I don’t think it’s that great – Jap over western any day!
