If you have been following Street Love long enough you will know that I love buying American products even before I am a beauty blogger. Now that I am one, I secretly like to source for American makeup products that are not available in Malaysia. There is something about owning products which no one or less people own that makes it even more special. Watching lots of Youtube videos does not help. It makes me crave for even more new makeup releases, hoping one fine day these brands will hit Malaysia market.
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.
Everyone know Maybelline’s rhythmic slogan “Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline”. We even secretly sing with the tagline 😀 . The slogan was implemented as Maybelline’s advertising slogan in 1991 and it has been the same since until 2016. This year, Maybelline adopted a brand new inspirational tagline “Make It Happen” to instill confidence among young women. It carries a powerful message behind it to spur young women to be on their journey to pursue their dreams.
One thing I hate about Facebook is that they are changing the way news feed appears on our timeline so frequently that I’m constantly missing new updates from the pages I’m following. Maybelline Malaysia has been teasing us with their new matte liquid lipstick and all that does not appear on my timeline. I only found out that Maybelline has a new Velvet Matte liquid lipstick when I was browsing through Guardian Malaysia Facebook page for their weekly promotions (love Guardian promo). Coincidently, it was the last day of Velvet Matte promo price of RM26.15 that I just had to drive to a Guardian to get it. Before that, I google for swatches online and concluded that I would get MAT 12 only as the rest of the colors are just too bright for everyday wear. For me that is 😀
Maybelline Velvet Matte by Color Sensational is a liquid-to-matte velvet finish liquid lipstick. What this means is, this is a lipstick in liquid form that would set to a velvet matte finishing. The concept is pretty similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick which is like the queen of all liquid lipstick. I personally like matte lipstick, not so much of a liquid lipstick fan due to the hassle application but if it’s gonna set to a matte finishing, count me in!
We’ve come to the 2nd instalment of favourites of the month didn’t we? 😀 . Just as I’ve explained in the previous August 2014 Favourites, all the items listed here has yet to made its way to the blog. I might or might not do an individual review after this. Some product yes, some don’t need to!
In this September 2014 Favourites, I have a good mix of beauty, beauty tools and also decor. I’m kinda into decorating mood at the moment. No surprise here since you’ve seen the amount of trips and time spent at home essential stores lately from my Instagram.
I thought of doing 10 favourites product every month but for this month’s favourites I am keeping it short as I’m having migraine for the past few days. When the migraine hit, all I want to do is to just sleep and whine. Nonetheless I’m going to present eight of my favourites to you. So let’s start with the beauty, shall we?
Most people I know are into liquid foundation and my weakness has always been face powder. It is the one out of the few makeup item I go through like no other’s business. I absolutely hate the sticky feeling of liquid foundation and I just cannot leave the house without dusting powder all over my face. Truth to be told, I was patiently waiting for L’Oreal Mat Magique to be made available in Malaysia several months ago after watching the review on it from ClickNetwork on YouTube. Boy I was sold! So when Maybelline out of the blue launched the White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder, I was intrigued but not intrigued enough to make a purchase. L’Oreal finally launched Mat Magique just a tad bit later than Maybelline and this curious cat was so tempted to know what’s the dealio with the two. I finally bought the Maybelline White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder when Watsons was offering a RM3 off from RM23.90 lol.
Would I thought of buying this if it’s not for the discount? No. I wouldn’t even thought about buying it. I have been reading lots of mix review on this product which explains why I have a reserve on this.
