If You Like Boosting Your Skin’s Natural Color, Laura Mercier Joie de Vivre Spring 2017 Collection is What You Need

Laura Mercier Joie de Vivre
I have been enjoying my Laura Mercier Joie de Vivre products so much so that I have totally forgotten to tell you about it 🙂 . I was thinking to review the lipstick first but suddenly yesterday I wanted to talk about the Colour Powder For Cheeks & Eyes. Then, as I was typing my review away, I decided to lump both products into one lol. Like a friend said – redirect the heart. And I redirected twice! 😛

This beautiful Laura Mercier parcel arrived unexpectedly from KENS Apothecary. I’m always grateful to them for letting me try their products without any commitment. Joie de Vivre is Laura Mercier’s Spring 2017 color collection. The entire collection consists of one Colour Powder For Cheeks & Eyes, three Velour Lovers Lip Colour, three Lip Pencil, one Tightlight Cake Eyeliner, and one Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara. Joie de Vivre makeup collection evolves around the idea of bringing the natural color in your skin for a healthy and youthful glow.

I Say GO BOLD or Go Home with Maybelline The Loaded Bolds Lipstick!

Maybelline The Loaded Bolds 1
I received a rather very surprised parcel one fine day just as I was reversing my car out and it was from Maybelline. I was a curious cat, ripping the courier plastic off to see what Maybelline sent me and I am not prepared for this. 12 pieces of brand new The Loaded Bolds lipsticks that was just released. All 12 new shades! With funky shades that I’ve been eyeing! Surprised, yes. Excited, hella yes!

At one glance I thought these Maybelline The Loaded Bolds lipstick are a matte lipstick. I have no idea why I think so. Maybe because every lipstick that was released to the market are either matte or liquid lipstick lol. Hey, I have no complain. You know how much I love my matte lipstick 😉 . In fact, The Loaded Bolds is a creamy lipstick that offers vibrant and full-spectrum shades as seem from my Instagram post here, here, and a look I did yesterday.

NYX Butter Gloss is My Secret to Revive Dry, Uncomfortable Lipstick

NYX Butter Gloss 1
I was going through my lipstick drawers and I kept looking at these NYX Butter Gloss, which I bought a few years ago for one sole purpose. Yeap. The one and only lip gloss that I used, like, love and still using 🙂 . I still remember a few years ago when NYX arrived Sephora. It was so exclusive and limited that every single day all the NYX counter would be swamped with girls. I literally have to snuck one arm in between waists to grab something. IT WAS INSANE. There was two product that was all hyped up back then. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, which I hate and this NYX Butter Gloss.

Butter Gloss is a lip gloss that is said to be super hydrating and not sticky. Did someone said not sticky? I’m in! But that’s not all what people say about Butter Gloss. The reason why I bought a lip gloss (rare case) was because I read about how this Butter Gloss works like a charm as lipstick topper, especially on dry lipstick. So I went on a hunt for Créme Brulee. That’s the shade that errrbody was raving for. I have to hunt for it because it was sold out everywhere. Whenever Sephora restock them, it was sold out again.

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick Defines Comfortable and Moisturizing, Even with its Extreme Matte Finishing

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte 1
When it comes to lipstick, hands down matte lipstick wins. There has been a love and hate with matte lipstick but I just love them. Not for its long lasting but for the comfort. I love how matte lipstick feels like nothing on the lips. Matte lipstick comes in many form – liquid lipstick, which is in trend at the moment, powder lipstick, which many find odd but I love it, and comfortable matte lipstick that will suit even those who are not into matte lipstick. Comfortable matte lipstick is able to provide comfort and moisture minus the shine. And that is exactly what Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick is all about.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is Everything You Need to Bring Out Your Natural Healthy, Juicy and Plump Lips

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil 1
In the past one year, if you have been seeing photos of me with juicy, ‘my lips but better’ lips, it is not a lip balm nor a tinted lip balm. Definitely not a lip gloss as I HATE lip gloss and definitely not a lipstick. It is the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. I keep wanting to talk about this cutie but it kept slipping off my mind. Cannot not admit that I am getting old 😛

When Clarins pulled out all their cosmetic range, all their fans died a little inside. I died a little inside as I am a loyal user of their White Plus HP Whitening Powder Foundation. I lost count on how many refills and casing I have bought again and again because that is all I used. Suddenly somewhere last year a little package dropped at my door step. Inside there is a small dainty and cute Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. Even before that I have already been seeing this popping out in a lot of Youtube videos. And I was about to order online because it was intriguing! Little did I know that Clarins Malaysia will be bringing back the cosmetic line and this was their first small step towards the upcoming initiative.

Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil Mystic/Whisper: A Pencil Not for the School but for the Face

Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil 1
On one Sephora online price glitch morning, I stumbled upon these Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil going for RM27 each. There are only two dual pencil within the Nudestix range so of course, you bet I grabbed both of it. RM27 each??!! Are you kidding me? 😛 . One of this pencil is retailing for RM92! Score!

A few months went down the road and I have not break into either of the pencil yet, until one fine day. I needed to clear out my “mini warehouse” so I chose a few new makeup products to break into. The Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil in the shade Mystic/Whisper is more of my kind of shade especially Mystic so naturally I would start with that first.
