Haul post (long and pic heavy :))

Firstly a shout out to Eric my brother-in-law who’s birthday is today – Happy Birthday!

This is rather belated as I purchased this over a month ago.  Just been too lazy!  My purchase was from Adambeauty.  I love Adambeauty ^^ The only thing I don’t love is that it doesn’t stock everything but you can’t ask for toooo much can you?

Kose’s Sekkisei sunscreen SPF 50+ PA+++ 60g

May I mention how pretty the bottle is? It’s a shimmery blue as opposed to the dark matte blue I originally thought 🙂

I haven’t tried this as I am still a long way from finishing my Allie one.  I am petrified of getting tanned, I am sick and tired of my damn freckles, and it’s approaching summer here in Brisbane too.

I shall be purchasing Palmers fade milk soon to attempt fading my freckles.  Review shall follow in the future after I buy and try.  If that fails.. I’m going to try Revitol.

This particular sunscreen has received great ratings in Jap mags, as well as online too.  I put off buying it because, well I don’t know.  I think I got sucked into free body spray in Allie’s promo set =.=

I imagine it will be similar to Allie with no white cast, great milky texture and good lasting ability 🙂

Skin79 The Oriental Gold BB Cream SPF 25 PA++ 40g

This BB cream was highly recommended by Eki.  It looked so nice I had to get it!

It claims to have whitening and wrinkle improvement.  It apparently contains “white tea, green tea and black tea” to “keep skin brighter and firmer”.

I avoided Skin79 BB creams for a long time because of its grey tinge, its reputation to not sink into the skin, and apparent dark shades.  This one had none of these!!

It comes with a blush/lip tint + mirror!  It actually works too 🙂  I was using this BB cream + blush in the pics in my previous post.

BB cream on left, bare skin on the right and blush/lip tint in the middle.  As you can see it’s a perfect colour match and the blush/lip tint gives a really nice fresh pinky tint to the skin.

Pros:

    • I used to love my The Skin Shop BB cream but this is my new favourite.
    • Don’t need a lot to get good coverage.  Finish is a smooth complexion.  Love!
    • Blush/lip tint is awesome
    • Does not irritate my skin at all
    • No heaviness

Cons:

    • Pump dispenser is sort of messy
    • Requires a fair few pumps before product comes out for the first time, after which it’s fine (don’t try taking the rubber stopper off!)
    • Only 40g 😦
    • not a high SPF.  I prefer over SPF30 at least, but it’s alright.  I always use sunscreen beforehand anyway.
    • This can be good or bad but it leaves a “dewy” finish => I can’t stand it and I end up patting some powder on top of it because it’s too dewy for me.

Visee Blossom Eyes in Gr-4

The packaging is sooo pretty with the off white floral embossing.  I really wanted a neutral green palette and this did a great job!  The back of the packaging shows a how-to.

The applicator it comes with is quite disappointing TBH.  It doesn’t seem to pick up the product as well as the previous Blooming or Blackish Forming ranges.

The top two shades are cream, but feels dry almost like powder, much better than the yucky greasy stuff and no creasing with eye primer.  However, it takes a bit of layering for the colour to show up.

Bottom three are powder shades.

Pretty and shimmery neutrals ^^

Texture is silky with little to no fall outs.

Visee Blossom Eyes PU-2

Packaging is same as above.  The top cream shade looks purple but is actually brown, but lighter than that of GR-4’s.

For some reason I couldn’t get the lighting right so it’s a bit warmer but it’s still pretty close.

The medium purple is pretty light and gives the eye just a purple tint.

Texture again is silky.

One thing I love about both palettes is the darkest shades.  They are soooo pretty!  However, overall I have to say I am disappointed with this range.
I loved how it looked, but when applied to the eyes, it didnt’ really give me “wow” I was expecting… Maybe it’s the applicator’s fault… But nevertheless these are still great palettes for spring/summer since they are so fresh and neutral!  I love the green more than I do the purple 🙂

Coffret D’or C Curve Eyes in 07 Plum Wine

This is my first Coffret D’or E/S palette.  I was sucked into the beautiful plum shade and the highlighter since I had none XD

No more jewelled case, just big printing on a very slim case.

The case is so slim that it falls backward when the case is open, because the mirror is so big and weighs more than the shadows.
Despite that, it weights 3.9g so they aren’t really ripping us off 🙂

The applicators are really nice and picks the shadows up well.

The highlighter does a great job without looking OTT shimmery 🙂

I wanted this palette to give me a more smoky purple look, which it did successfully.

Texture is actually harder than most palettes I have.  Probably similar to T’estimo’s discontinued palettes – which figures since Coffret D’or was the replacement for T’estimo anyway.  Nevertheless, it glides on the eyes easily, and leaves a subtle shimmery finish.

And that ends my post 🙂 Now it’s time for me to wash off my Coconut Hair soak 🙂 I’ve left it on for way too long XD
