I, for one has been taking pride in travelling with everything full size. People say I’m crazy but I just like how all the full size beauty products lining up at the hotel bathroom against the huge mirror 😀 . Well, that was until the recent Singapore trip with Olay where I find myself having trouble stuffing all my beauty products into my luggage. I was only going for a few days so I do not plan to bring a bigger luggage. The issue occurs because I brought my running gear with me. So that took hella lots of space hence lesser space for my beauty products 🙁 . I have come to realisation that I need makeup kit that has everything I need, minus the bulkiness and luggage space. Hence I went online to Sephora.my and found these two Travel-Friendly Makeup Kit that covers everything that you need.
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.
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.
I go through phases with eyeliner. One week I’m into winged eyeliner look, one week I’m into smokey eyeliner look, another week I can be spotted with colorful winged eyeliner. Lately it is all about no eyeliner but looking as if I had eyeliner on. The key to that is smoking out gel eyeliner. I have teary eyes therefore gel eyeliner as regular winged eyeliner does not work for me. So I used gel eyeliner to tight line and to line my water line. And KATE Tokyo launched one of the most exciting gel eyeliner last week. Say hello to the long awaited 1.5mm Sharp Lock Gel Pencil 😀
If there is one makeup application that I am proud of, that would be my brow shaping. I go through brow pencil so fast that I no longer bother to spend loads on eyebrow pencil. Everyone on Youtube including their mama and grandma uses Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Brow Wiz is a ultra-thin automatic pencil that is said to be the best among the best. When NYX came out with Micro Brow Pencil, everyone on Youtube started to compare it with Brow Wiz saying it is a cheaper dupe.
A lot of us are not aware that Sisley has been present in Malaysia for quite some time. I remember when I first started dipping my toes in beauty blogging, Maybank credit card was kind enough to have a few sampling exercise. It was not just any ordinary sachet sample redemption but what I get was a whole complete deluxe size trial kit in a pouch worth RM150, if I’m not mistaken. This generous redemption happened not just once but two to three times! 😀 . That is how I got to know the brand Sisley. I had a good first impression on the brand as the beauty advisor did not hard-sell their products during the redemption. Usually brand like this attracts me more to ask and fiddle with the products.
Fast forward to four years later, today, Sisley Malaysia had its first ever blogger get-together two months ago. It was a good one as we get to see, smell, and trial some Sisley skincare products as well as their makeup. Specifically the Phyto-Eye Twist and Phyto-Lip Twist. I have been wearing these two product frequently. It is fast and easy to use makeup products.
