Avène Bio-Essence Clarins Coffret D'or Hada Labo Kanebo Skin79

Newly Opened – 1st to 3rd Week Feb 2012

Beginning of this month I opened up quite a number of new products to use.

Clarins Instant Light Perfecting Touch 1ml
This is a sample unit and I currently have 3 pieces which I’ve used up 2. I’m using this as a concealer to cover up my acne scar. The color of this is slightly tinted and appears pinkish. So far the concealer does a good job.

Kanebo Coffret D’Or Eyes Appeal Shadow in (01 Sweet Brown)
Bought this from last week’s Kanebo warehouse sales at Kanebo Internation Salon Bangsar. The color payout is very light and but very shimmering. I like that it’s not just shimmering, it also contains shimmer particles.

Skin79 Crystal Finish Pact
A Taiwan Marie Claire magazine freebies. The shade is a bit light but with my darker shade liquid foundation, it’s not a biggie. I usually swirl this with Ecotools Blush Brush. This compact powder also contains shimmer particles.

Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm
It says “Lip Balm” but I don’t recommend using it as lip balm alone as you could look like a ghost! There’s this satin sheen on the lips and I like to apply this just before my lipstick. It gave my lipstick a beautiful sheen and it’s quite moisturising too.

Clarins Concealer Stick 2.6g
Bought two of this from Clarins beauty fair last year for RM30 each. Original price of this is RM92 can you believe that. It’s something like Instant Light Perfecting Touch. The only different is the texture. This is more solid creamy and Instant Light Perfecting Touch is more liquid.

Bio-Essence Aqua BB Cream 30g
I got this from an exchange program back in January. Read here. If you know me then you’d know I hate the company Ginvera and all the products under it’s umbrella. This BB cream is a crap. For some reason I don’t feel safe applying this on my face. I’ve used it once and it’s now in my rubbish bin.

Clarins Pure and Radian Mask With Pink Clay 15ml
Review: Read here
One of the best mask I’ve ever used! Apparently this is my 2nd last 15ml tube. If you use this mask on the night, you’d get a more radiant skin the next morning. Makeup glides on smoothly and stays on smoothly too.

Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Neck Cream 15ml
This was given to me as one of the GWP. I’ve been using it on and off. Maybe because of that I haven’t seen any significant result. I think I need to use it more often to see a better result?

Clarins Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum 30ml
I gotten this from October last year points redemption and this baby costs RM238. I was advised by a BA at Jusco MV in September 2011 to purchase this but I refuse as I find it expensive for a 30ml hehe. I didn’t use this everyday as I was alternating between 3 serums.

Clarins White Plus HP Whitening Velvet Emulsion SPF20 15ml
This is given to me to try by Clarins Malaysia as this is their new White Plus HP product which just launched not long ago. This will be replacing the current Whitening Day Emulsion. The new Velvet Emulsion comes in 2 version; one with SPF20 and the other one without. The one without SPF20 could be use at night time. I kinda like this new version as it’s less oilier and felt more light on the skin. This will definitely suitable for combination skin.

Kanebo Coffret D’Or Natural Clear Liner BK-28
A non-refillable liquid eye liner by Coffret D’Or. First impression is this is kinda watery. It’s like the water and the black ink is not properly mixed. Then I start to shake the pen vigorously and it’s ok now LOL. Hard to remove though. Don’t expect this to be easier to remove like Maybelline HyperSharp Liner cause it’s not.

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch 4ml
Review: Read here
Makeup artist around the world called this the second skin. I couldn’t agree more. I’m using this to cover up my forehead lines. Yea I tend to frown and lift my brow when I do my eye makeup. Bad bad habit. And I’m using this to cover up my pores on the cheek as well.

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion 9ml
A sample from Hada Labo FB redemption. I always wanted to apply something liquid and moisturizing after each mask session and this is perfect! I could see myself purchasing the full size bottle of this soon.
