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.
Did you notice all the pretty and cute collection for Spring 2016? The one I was not aware of until being told to Google for photos is none other than Mary Kay Into The Garden Color Compact, which I am going to talk about today.
For Spring 2016, Mary Kay is all about the inspiration captured from warm sunshine, fresh flowers, beautiful blooms and lush greens. Thus born the all-NEW Limited Edition Mary Kay® Into the Garden™ Collection. The entire collection is in collboration with fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi.
Most people I know find drawing eyebrows are a dreadful thing to do. Me on the the other hand are obsessed with drawing eyebrows. Maybe because my eyebrows are has very little hair and sparse that I find fixing them are therapeutic. I spend quite some time with my brows everyday before leaving the house. I may appear to have eyebrows on fleek to most of you but in reality it takes a lot of effort. When it comes to eyebrows, I hold on to three rules – a good eyebrow pencil, a good brush, and skills of course. Now it’s four as I have added Bourjois Brow Design Brow Mascara into my eyebrow routine 😀
Brow mascara is getting more and more in trend these days. Last time you hardly can find any and now? Almost every single brand has at least one. Bourjois is not new in this brow mascara bandwagon. In fact they already had one selling at Watsons and at their store called Mascara A Sourcils Eyebrow Mascara.
I love bizarre beauty products. Bizarre in the sense that it is something unique or never seen before in the beauty scene, and something that looks like ordinary but gives you the wow impression. And I especially love products that are not available in Malaysia. It gives me a sense of uniqueness of owning something that is not easily available here. The fact is, there is this product from L’Oreal that is available in Hermo.my that I am not aware of until last week. L’Oreal Tint Caresse is available exclusively at Hermo.my and to make the exclusivity even more exclusive, Tint Caresse is ONLY available for 2 weeks. Say what?
L’Oreal Tint Caresse is the 1st lip gradation pen that are inflused with tints from the most refined blend of precious flowers. It comes with an applicator with soft cushion tip which also works well in blending in color on the lips for the most natural ombre effect instantly. This is not my first time seeing such soft cushion tip design as I have used something similar for the eyes from Anna Sui before. But Anna Sui one was a pain to use so let’s not get into there.
Mascara is my cheat way to not using eyeliner. I believe most people cannot leave the house without any eyeliner, however I am the opposite. I would be gladly to skip eyeliner and yet I cannot live without mascara. I find mascara to be easier to apply especially when I am in the rush comparing to eyeliner. When you are in the rush, eyeliner can go very wrong 😛
Bourjois has a few pretty interesting mascara. And just recently they came out with Volume Glamour Effet Push Up Mascara and Lash Machine, which goes well hand in hand or on it’s own. Let me rephrase. These two goes superbly well together. So why separate them right? 😉
