warning: too many “seductive-wannabe” pictures of pouts.
Hey girlies! Today, I am sharing with you my Revlon Lip Butter collection! Okay, I don’t have that many- I have five. But I thought I’d show you anyway, ’cause these are still literally my FAVOURITE lip products ever!
Starting off with the shade I HATE the most:
1. PEACH PARFAIT
I know that this is one of the more-talked about shades from the whole line, but personally I don’t like it that much. It is supposed to be a pinky-nude shimmery colour. Because my lips are slightly more pigmented, this colour just adds a heck lot of shimmer to my lips – and I don’t like it because it accentuates the dry, fine lines on my lips.
2. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE
I LOVE this colour, but unfortunately, its too cool-toned for my skintone. I still really love this colour as a sheer, one coat kind of colour on my lips. It’s a candy-bubblegum pink colour and it looks really yummy :3
3. SWEET TART
I just added this to my collection not too long ago. When I bought this, I thought it was going to be a natural/baby pink kind of colour one my lips. But when I came home and tried it on, all I needed was ONE coat to get the colour I desire. If I build up this colour, it becomes a hot pink-fuschia colour which I really don’t like.
4. CHERRY TART
This is my favourite shade of all time, Cherry Tart! I’m sorry it looks disgusting, but you can tell that I’ve given it so much “love” (hahaha). This is definitely a good start to a red lip, so if you’re too scared to try one, GIVE THIS A TRY! It will change your world, seriously. It’s a pinky-red colour that isn’t too bright a red.
5. TUTTI FRUTTI
This is the shade Tutti Frutti. It looks like a straight up orange colour but if you put a sheer coat, it looks like a coral and thats what I LOVE about this lipstick! I have wanted this lipstick ever since it came out but this shade wasnt introduced in Malaysia. AND I SAW IT IN SINGAPORE!! Grabbed it and loved it ever since <3.
That’s it!! That’s all the colours I have and I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
I stupidly forgot to photograph the actual product itself, how surprising (sarcastic tone). So this is from Google.
Hey beauties! Today I have a mascara review for you! The Maybelline Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara!! As many of you know, this is my favourite mascara right now and I think it will still be for quite some time.
This is definitely a very dramatic mascara, so if you like the natural look, then I wouldn’t recommend this. But if you have Asian lashes (short, sparse, stick-straight) like me, then this is perfect for you! The waterproof formula will help hold the curl in place.
I love layering a few coats of mascara; but for the sake of this review, the pictures below are of ONE coat of this amazing mascara!
It is very clumpy (for that dramatic look) but I really don’t mind. The clumps aren’t too noticable unless you take a closeup picture of your eye, haha. 😀 Layering this mascara WILL make the clumps more noticable. You can apply just one coat of this mascara because this is MAGIC. :p
Soooo.. on to the pictures! CLICK TO ENLARGE
These are BEFORE shots of my eye closeup:
And these are AFTER ONE COAT shots of my eye closeup:
Can you see what I see?! It’s an awesome transformation, considering it’s only 1 coat and my lashes are really, really just non-existent.
I’m definitely a huge fan of this mascara, but I’m rating this mascara a B+ because sometimes I feel like the formula is too clumpy for me when I want more of a natural look and I know most of you guys like the all natural look. But this works really, really good on my “type” of lashes!
Told you guys I’d post more frequently after my finals! Well, my finals’ only officially over tomorrow. I have Biology Paper 1 & 6 left, and I’m really calm.. That’s bad. Oh! I have Literature too. Damnnnnn. BUT, I am already posting more frequently, right right right? 😀
Today I have a review & swatches for you!
This is the not-so-new Color Sensational Lipstick by Maybelline. The shade I’m showing you today is Coral Crush.
This is a nice, bright pink colour. To me, it’s nothing too crazy or out of my comfort zone. I do wear a lot of bright, bold lipsticks like my MAC Morange. That’s crazy Orange! But I love bright lipsticks! They’re just my thing. Especially for summer! 🙂
This can be very wearable and also very, very bold. As you can see from the swatch above, it’s very buildable. The lighting wasn’t very good.. Sorry. Grainy pics it is then! Hahahaha. But it’s still a pretty pink colour that I think will look universally flattering.
This lip colour is very long wearing. Like, super. It stays on your lips, throughout the day, even after eating! It sounds pretty creepy, like it’s stained on your lips. Hahaha! Only makeup remover can remove this. Seriously. It’s not as drying as normal long-wearing lipsticks are, but it is a little drying. It is a nice glossy finish.
Overall, I really like this lipstick and am definitely wanting to purchase some more. I’m not a huge fan of the packaging though, I don’t know.. I just don’t like the red. :/ Well, you can’t judge a cover by its book, can you? Well, that’s what I do :p
Heyhey beauties! Today I have a summer checklist post! Since it’s summer 24/7 here in Malaysia and I’m totally bored of it, I decided to join in the fun and write a blog post on a few of my “summer” essentials!
1) Moisturizer (with spf please c: )
This is my Neutrogena Moisture SPF 15 Moisturizer which was featured in my April Favourites post! Its important to moisturize in the summer time (well, all year round actually). The added SPF will help protect your skin from the harmful sun rays. How ironic, we want to tan under the sun, yet protect our skin from it?
2) BB Cream/Tinted Moisturizer
For the summer time, we’ll be sweating and getting oily.. a lot. So you wanna be sure that you use something that’s going to stay on, yet feel really lightweight on your skin. Most of us don’t like wearing too much makeup for the summer time, so BB Creams & Tinted Moisturizers are great choices! One of my personal favourite BB Cream is the Garnier one. And my favourite Tinted Moisturizer is the You Rebel Lite by Benefit.
As I said, we’ll be getting real oily so primer is definitely a must to keep your makeup looking fresh all day! Both face & eye primer is a necessity for summer! Enough said.
5) Waterproof Makeup!
Waterproof makeup is an essential whether or not you want to go into the water. Sweat will also smudge makeup. To prevent that, you want to make sure you use waterproof everything! Mascara, Eyeliner, Lipstick, etc.
6) Bright Makeup!
Summer is the only time we can go crazy on the makeup looks without looking like a clown. Colors are so fun to wear and they really pop on the face. Coral and tangerine lips, neon nails & pastel makeup are so in this season! Summer is a great time to get all your fun palettes out that you would never wear on a daily basis. But now you can!
Just for the glow! & it’s way cheaper.
Please ladies. Wax before showing up in a bikini. In public.
Hey look, it’s Gillian Zinser (I love her on 90210!) ANYWAY.. Bikinis are a must! Like, hello? :p
10) Bikini Cover Ups
These are just really nice for hanging at the beach without going into the water.
There’s nothing much to say about these. But they are definitely the things that I find really important for summer! I hope you guys like this! Thanks for reading! 🙂
I am so sorry I have been neglecting my blog lately. Finals is in three weeks & I’ve already started studying.. Like I said, NERD. Hahaha 🙂 Hope you guys don’t mind. I’m trying to fit time into my schedule to film & post!
But as promised, here are the Naked 2 Palette swatches! These are all heavily swatched.
Left to Right: Foxy, Half-Baked, Bootycall, Chopper
FOXY is a matte highlight shade which I cannot stress enough HOW IMPORTANT those are in palettes. It is a very sheer colour, but as you can see from the swatch above, it is very buildable. This would work on a lot of skintones, it’s a really really nice highlight.
HALF-BAKED is a golden-y shade that I use all the time to highlight my inner corners. It just brightens so well! This looks really flattering all over the eyelids as well! Topping this on top of MAC’s Paint Pot in Rubenesque will give you the extreme brightness you need to widen up your eyes and make you look awake.
BOOTYCALL is a slightly frosty highlight shade. This is another one of those shades I find universally flattering. I use this all over my lids when I want a very subtle look just to brighten those peepers. This will also look good as a highlight shade, either on the inner corners or on the browbone. Personally though, I prefer a highlight shade to be matte. But everyone has their own preferences.
CHOPPER is a shimmery golden colour. This is one of the colours that leans more towards the chalkier side and it has quite a lot of fallout.
Left to Right: Tease (My Fave!), Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol
TEASE is a light purple-grey colour. My favourite combination is to have Bootycall all over the lids and Tease in the crease; gives a really nice subtle look! Video tutorial coming soon 🙂
SNAKEBITE is a dark, shimmery bronze colour. This would look nice if you want a smokey look but don’t want to go too dark with a black.
SUSPECT is a light, champagne colour. It’s gorgeous all over the lids! Gives a brightening effect.
PISTOL is a dark grey but has a slight tinge of green in it. This is great as a crease colour because its a very wearable colour; it’s not too harsh.
Left to Right: Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout
VERVE is a bright silver colour that works very well as a “middle-of-the-lids” colour. It reflects just the right amount of light & makes you look more awake.
YDK is a gorgeous rose-gold colour. This is also on the chalkier side, but it’s still a pretty colour! This would look good as a natural-lazy look, by just applying this all over the lids and nothing else. Rose-gold is so in this season 🙂
BUSTED is the perfect shade of a dark brown that is a very great substitute for black eyeshadow if you dont want your smokey look to be too dramatic. This looks great in the crease.
BLACKOUT is a matte black. This is sooo pigmented! Love that this palette comes with this shade. Blend a little of this colour into the crease and you’re ready for a night out!
