Make Up Tips – Pencil Eyeliner as Base; Perfect for Everyday Wear

Since CNY is just around the corner and I’m already on leave so I thought I’d wake up earlier to do this makeup tips post. I have been wanting to post this up months ago but just didn’t have the time. This is a tips from Adrian Sin; Burberry and RMK Beauty Trainer which I picked up at RMK makeover last year. It is simple and yet useful and versatile for everyday wear that I’ve been implementing to my daily makeup myself.

Before I start I must mention a disclaimer in advance as I know some of you can be quite judgmental and harsh. I’m no makeup expert, this is a tips that I picked up personally from a makeup guru which I think is worth to be share to you guys as I had the privilege to meet and had my makeup done by Adrian not once but twice. And during numerous encounter with Adrian I managed to get some pointers, tips and tricks from him.


I’m not going to talk about prep-ing your face with skin care or base makeup. I assume you guys are expert now. I’m just going to jump directly to the main topic which is using pencil eyeliner as eye makeup base.

Review: Kanebo Coffret D’or Natural Clear Liner; Not-So-Bad Liquid Eyeliner After All

A cheap find at Kanebo Warehouse Sales early this year changed my perception about liquid eyeliner. I only have one liquid eyeliner at the moment while I had tossed away the rest after I bought this. I was told Coffret D’or is retrieving from Malaysia market and will only concentrate on Lunasol which is on the higher range. Coffret D’or in Japan is considered lower range but sells quite expensive in Malaysia previously. The brand has 2 type of liquid eyeliner. One which is non-refillable while another one is refillable. I decided to purchase the non-refillable one since Coffret D’or is retrieving from Malaysia anyway. What if I fell in love with it but couldn’t find the refill anywhere? Wouldn’t it be devastating?

For eyeliner I’d prefer Black color. No exception for Kanebo Coffret D’or Natural Clear Liner which I’ve gotten a BK-28. I never understand Kanebo’s product color code especially the numbering at the back.

The tube is a shiny, silver, mirror long and slim tube. I’m always attracted to this type of packaging as it looked much more nicer than color tube. Just my preference 🙂

Review: Kanebo Coffret D’or W Styling Eyebrow Pencil

One of the makeup item that I buy and stock up is eyebrow pencil. Back in February 2012 I went to Kanebo warehouse sales and bought some as it’s really cheap for a Kanebo.

Kanebo Coffret D’or W Styling Eyebrow Holder and Pencil is sold separately. The holder is sold for RM20 after discount and RM18 for the pencil refill. At first I was a bit skeptical about the concept. I mean if you’re buying from counter at normal price, the price overall is kinda expensive for an eyebrow pencil. But then I rethink again. I only need to buy the holder once. And refill would be cheaper for long run. So I bought 5 refill at one go as Coffret D’or is pulling out from Malaysia market at that time. Now that I’m on my 2nd refill I thought it’s appropriate for me to share with you my lil thoughts.

Each holder and refill is packed individually.

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.

Coffret D'or Kanebo Warehouse Sales

Kanebo Warehouse Sales 2012 Haul

Did you know that Kanebo Malaysia is having their first warehouse sales in 2012? Now you know :). Sales is up to 50% discount. Not a lot for a warehouse sales if you ask me. But no harm checking it out.

Sales detail as below:-
Kanebo International Salon @ Starhill Gallery 3-5 February
Kanebo International Salon @ Bangsar 10-12 February

I missed last week’s sales so I went for this week’s sales at Kanebo International Salon Bangsar.

Products offered are Coffret D’or up to 50% off, Lunasol and Impress IC up to 20% off, Impress and Blanchir Superior up to 30% off. There are also 2 sets of Impress Granmula special buy; Purchase Impress Granmula Cream at RM4,600 and FREE Impress Double Cleansing + Double Moisturizing and Purchase Impress Granmula Emulsion at RM1,200 and FREE Impress Double Cleansing. A bit disappointed that Lunasol price is not much different and Coffret D’or is just 50% off considering the fact that Coffret D’or will be pulling out from Malaysia after this clearance. If a particular brand is pulling out from the market, one would expect maybe 70% or buy 1 free 1 or even nett clearance price i.e. RM10, RM30, RM50. Anyway after taking sweet sweet time browsing and asking questions on the products, I hauled RM238 worth of Coffret D’or products. The crowd is too nice just nice and it’s nothing close like those warehouse sales in hotel’s function room. When I was there there’s only 1 lady around and when I’m about to leave, there’s another lady who just came in. So you can enjoy the 1 to 1 chat with the BA when you’re there.

So, what did I get? Was aiming on eyeshadow palette especially Lunasol but the colors and price doesn’t caught my eye and instead Coffret D’or color selection is way better so I bought the following.

– Eyes Appeal Shadow in (01 Sweet Brown) – RM54
– Eye Shadow / Powder Case (Black) – RM12

I was told the casing is sold out but the BA managed to find a last unit in Black although White is my choice.

Coffret D’or Eyes Appeal Shadow in (01 Sweet Brown) – RM54
Coffret D’or Eye Shadow / Powder Case (Black) – RM12

There’s 2 type of liquid eyeliner available. One is not refillable and one is refillable. The casing for refillable eyeliner is RM33 while the refill is RM17. I don’t plan to buy a lot plus the brand will face out so I only bought 1 not refillable liquid eyeliner for RM29.

Coffret D’or Natural Clear Liner (BK-28) – RM29

The only item I bought a lot is eyebrow pencil. I mean who doesn’t drew their eyebrow? I can live without eyeliner but NOT eyebrow pencil lol.

Coffret D’or W Styling Eyebrow Holder – RM20
Coffret D’or W Styling Eyebrow Pencil (BR-38OV) X 5pcs – RM18 each

Last but not least something which I never fail to buy; Kanebo Eye Makeup Remover for RM33.

Kanebo Eye Make Up Remover – RM33

Did you know that in Japan, Coffret D’or is not premium brand? Instead it’s the lowest range in Kanebo. Only Malaysia is selling that expensive.
