Two weeks ago I wanted to paint my nails after what seems to be forever since I last painted them. I used to be very diligent in making sure I have colors on my nails but over the past few months I just did not have the time. And I was enjoying the bare nails look. However I started to missed my funky accent nail-do and I did not want to use the same ol’ nail polish I had so I went on a stash shopping looking for new nail polishes. As luck was on my side I found a few brand new nail polishes sitting in the drawer. I have three new CATRICE nail polishes but the CATRICE Ultimate Nail Lacquer wow-ed me and I cannot stop using them!
It all started from the newly renovated Guardian store in Suria KLCC. Palladio first made it’s first appearance into the Malaysia beauty scene back in September 2016. Right before I started tapping onto my keyboard for this review, I did a quick Google search on Palladio Malaysia. It seems that Palladio was once in Malaysia. 2009 to be precise!
Palladio was created more than 25 years ago by industry veterans as botanical and vitamin infused cosmetics from the US. I don’t know about you but the Chinese lady on the blotting paper looked similar to the one on the oldie white face powder from China. Back in my younger days, I used to buy the powder for its vintage pretty packaging. In fact I still own it for safekeeping sake 🙂 . Palladio these days is known for its color cosmetics line. The company had its headquarter in Hollywood, Florida. If you happen to dropped by selected Guardian stores and found Palladio shelf, you will be drawn to lots of colors.
Bourjois, tsk tsk tsk. You have done it again. Rolling out new product one by one, with each and every product to be…. *beep*. You would think I will tell you at the beginning of this review and spoil everything, eh? Nah. You got to read on 😉
Now. I have these two new eye makeup products from Bourjois for nearly 2 months ago. Again, just like the City Radiance Skin Protecting Foundation and Radiance Reveal Concealer, it is the only mascara and eyeliner that I have been using everyday for the past 2 months, putting these two to test.
My current everyday foundation and concealer for the past few months has been nothing but the Bourjois City Radiance Skin Protecting Foundation and Radiance Reveal Concealer. I have been using them so much that I am going to run out soon because the product testing turned from a month to two months and now three months! Oppss! I hope I can sleep better now that this review is up 😀
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer is a concealer which I have been eyeing and been wanting to buy for years. It is THE concealer that has gotten so many ravings from all over the world. Everyone said this is the best affordable drugstore concealer. Everytime I saw an online seller listed it, I wanted to buy so badly. I didn’t because of the price. I cannot justify paying RM45 – RM55 for a Maybelline concealer. That, and the fact that I have so many other concealer at home.
Matte liquid lip is in trend. It is so highly sought after that almost every brand came out with something. And that makes every girl run for their life to the nearest store to get it. Silkygirl, our very own local brand too jump onto the whole matte liquid lip bandwagon with the release of Matte Junkie Lip Cream. When I found out about this from Instagram, it took me a few weeks to remember to check on it. And when I do, I could not find it anywhere! Then the chase begun. Everyone I know was literally hunting for it. I was told that it was sold out everywhere. Why am I not even surprised? Everyone from every corner including their mother and grandmother bought it. Hence the limited stock available. I gave up searching for it until one day I went to One Utama for lunch with my friend Charmaine and we walked pass a secluded Guardian store. I walked in randomly without any high hope that I will find anything. Guardian is my favourite drugstore to visit as they carry Catrice, which is my favourite drugstore brand at the moment. But voila! All the tester seems new and untouched and every single shades are fully stocked up. I love secluded store LOL.
