Make Up - Face Review: Make Up RMK

Review: RMK Base Make Up Duo – Make Up Base & Liquid Foundation #103

A week after my full makeover with Adrian Sin from RMK, I headed to Isetan KLCC to make my purchase of their best seller; Make Up Base and Liquid Foundation. I thought of separating the review of both item but after using the Make Up Base for the first time 2 weeks ago I think it’s best if I combine the review of both product. It does make more sense isn’t it 🙂

First up. Make Up Base. This highly rave RMK Make Up Base is retailing for RM135 for a 30ml bottle. The bottle is heavy as it’s made from thick frosted glass.

MAC Make Up - Face Review: Make Up

Review: Love From Bobo – MAC Makeup Base, Skin Enhancer & Foundations Samples

Sometime in May I met up with a long time friend which I haven’t seen for years. The reason behind the meet up is to collect my Suria Meriang Staff Sales invitation cards from her. We went for lunch and chatted quite a bit catching up with each other on what’s happening around our life. In the chat of course I asked all that I wanted to ask about MAC, feedback to her how scary it is MAC outlet looks like from the outside LOL.

I’m quite interested to try MAC makeup base and liquid foundation. However I don’t buy stuff if I never tested it on the skin before so Bobo took out 4 small glass bottles and started to fill in some for me to take home to try. This is what I was given.

Bobo stored the glass bottles in 2 separate pillow box. Cute.


Here’s the mini glass bottles. I never knew we could request for samples like that. Oh well maybe we’re not offered before =P

Clarins Make Up - Face Review: Make Up

Review: My Current Favorite; Clarins White Plus HP Whitening Powder Foundation #03 Natural

One makeup item which I like to buy and stock up besides blusher, eyebrow pencil and foundation is powder foundation. My trusted 2-way powder foundation since 10 years ago has always been ZA. Till now I still keep a spare of that just in case everything else is cakey on me.

Sometime in March 2012, I read about a new powder foundation release by Clarins Singapore. It’s the new addition to White Plus HP range. A whitening powder foundation? Now that’s interesting! As I was hanging around Jusco 1U, I asked Fennie about this as I didn’t know if it’s available in Malaysia. To my delight, it’s available and it’s already on sale. I was given sample card to try but only shade #03 Natural is available. Fennie told me the best seller is #04 Almond and it suits all skin shade. Thank God I called back to change my reservation to #03 Natural as it looked like my own skin!

Clarins White Plus HP Whitening Powder Foundation #03 Natural refill pack is retailing for RM126 and the casing is sold separately for RM42. I think it’s pretty expensive for a powder foundation even if I repurchase a refill pack. Clarins said that this is “the avant-garde whitening foundation comes with double whitening performance which gives skin a naturally brighter, fair and flawless complexion”. So I thought why not try it?

Guerlain Make Up - Face Review: Make Up

Review: Guerlain Météorites Perles Illuminating Powder #02 Teint Beige

I’m so excited about this review that I don’t know where to start. This is my first Guerlain purchase back in April 2012. It is also my first Guerlain Météorites Perles which I have been drooling for quite some time. As Guerlain counter is limited, I don’t get to bump into them much. Which is why I kept on forgetting to check them out. Finally one Sunday I was at KLCC and I remembered about Guerlain. Let’s just say the rest is history.

I bought a Guerlain Météorites Perles Illuminating Powder #02 Teint Beige for RM181. It comes in a set together with a bottle of Météorites Perles – Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer. The whole set is just RM299.


Everyone kept on asking me what is it or what is it for. It’s hard to explain, show and even justify the effect of these balls on the complexion. It just can’t. All I can tell you is the effect on me is huge. I’m hooked. I’m addicted. I’m a collector now!

“The choice to update Météorites stems from a simple fact: each different skin tone has specific needs and thus requires a particular solution. A rosy complexion tends to show some redness. A beige complexion turns grey with the onset of fatigue. A golden complexion becomes yellow and dull. The uncontested expert in colour and powder, Guerlain has created three different Météorites colour harmonies to meet the specific needs of different skin tones and the way in which they reflect colour and light, in line with the principles of the colour wheel and interaction of secondary colours.”

Guerlain Météorites Perles Illuminating Powder comes in 3 different shades; 01 Teint Rose, 02 Teint Beige and 03 Teint Dore. I chose #02 Teint Beige as I was told by the BA that Teint Rose is more normal, Teint Beige is more illuminating and it’s the best seller and Teint Dore is for darker skin tone.

Estée Lauder Make Up - Face Review: Make Up

Review: Estée Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Crème SPF 35/PA+++

This review is the most exciting one for me to write as I’ve tried and love the new Estée Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Crème SPF 35/PA+++. Phew! What a mouthful. I’m just gonna refer this as BB Crème ya. This is also one of the many product which I bought after trying a sample. No doubt many people redeemed sample just for the fun of doing it (no offense, it’s the reality!) but I genuinely wanted to try before purchasing. So kudos to sampling program!
