Want a Foundation That Gives a Radiant Complexion? Try the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Anti-Fatigue Concealer. But, there’s a catch

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Anti-Fatigue Concealer
Now that everyone has posted up their review on the NEW Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Anti-Fatigue Concealer, it’s time for me to post mine. Yes, this delayed review is on purpose as I do not want to saturate the beauty blogging scene with what everyone is doing. I like to do things a little bit different than others 🙂

Now, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is not a stranger to all of us. Everyone I know LOVE IT. I have the older version, which I had forgotten to do a comparison against the new one *face palm*. To be honest, I am not into the older Healthy Mix Foundation, which explains why you never heard me talk about it or review about it. But I could not put a finger to why I don’t like it, until I tried the NEW Healthy Mix Foundation. That’s when the imaginary light bulb in my head lights up!

I’ll Look Passed the Bulky Squarish Softlips Cube For I Like the Lip Balm Inside

Softlips Cube 1
Remember there was one point of time I had so many lip balm sent over that it was too overwhelming? Not anymore 😛

I always appreciate lip balm sent over my way because I rely heavily on lip balm on day to day basis. When I had an allergy on my lips last year, clear moisturizing lip balm was all I used. I keep a tube on my work table so I can reapply constantly to keep my dry lips moisturize and I always, ALWAYS apply lip balm as I do my makeup so that lipstick goes on smoother.

Let me be honest. When Softlips Cube landed on my desk, I was not too impressed. I do not like the squarish bulky packaging at first glance. Maybe it is just me because all my handbag are so small and sometimes I can’t even fit a lipstick in. To bring Softlips Cube out and about is out of the question no thanks to its packaging. Cute, yes. Convenient? Not for me. But on my desk, it is just perfect as it sits nicely without tumbling down. The cube design is said to resemble ice cubes so that you look snazzy when applying lip balm. Seriously? lol

This Is What Happened When I Finally Take Out CATRICE Ultimate Nail Lacquer To Good Use

Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer 1
Two weeks ago I wanted to paint my nails after what seems to be forever since I last painted them. I used to be very diligent in making sure I have colors on my nails but over the past few months I just did not have the time. And I was enjoying the bare nails look. However I started to missed my funky accent nail-do and I did not want to use the same ol’ nail polish I had so I went on a stash shopping looking for new nail polishes. As luck was on my side I found a few brand new nail polishes sitting in the drawer. I have three new CATRICE nail polishes but the CATRICE Ultimate Nail Lacquer wow-ed me and I cannot stop using them!

Lip Pure Lip Balm: Cracking This Out As Saviour For A Sudden Allergic Reaction on The Lips

Lip Pure Lip Balm 1
Roughly about 2 weeks ago, for the first time in my life I had allergy attack on my lips. Yeap. My lips. It is not as sexy as Angelina Jolie as my friends said it is. It is so swollen, dry, tight and awfully painful. I quicky found out that the cause to the allergy attack was the Pearl Drops Professional Intensive White Toothpolish. Who would have thought! Toothpaste causing allergy. I do know I am allergic to some whitening products. But toothpaste? This is the first time. Two days after the allergy attack, I flew to Singapore. I grab none of my beauty products but two lip saviour. They are Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil and this Lip Pure Lip Balm. The lip oil from Clarins works for my dry lips but later on I kinda got tired with the stickiness. Thank goodness I grabbed the Lip Pure Lip Balm along. Initially I have no intention in cracking into another lip balm to use but because of my lip allergy and how it saved my lips from the pain, I have to come in here and tell you about it.

Lip Pure Lip Balm is formulated with food grade ingredients, 5 types of essential oils, 3 types of honey extracts and plant extracts. Phew! That is as natural as you can get for a lip balm. The concoction of 5 natural essential oils such as Argan Oil, Marula Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil are the main saviour to my lips. They product the best (in my experience and opinion) moisturizing and nourishing benefits. This Lip Pure Lip Balm reminds me a lot of the previous Orange version, which I reviewed here before. The previous one has a hint of Orange scent to it and this new one is scentless. I have to mention that the old one melts in my hot room. This one? I have it in my room for near to 3 weeks now and it is still like new 😀

Lip Pure Lip Balm 2
Lip balm can be a little daunting in a sense that some leaves a white mark on the lip surface, some dries the lip even more, some causes the skin to peel off and so on. I am happy to report that this new Lip Pure Lip Balm does none of that crap. It has anti-aging properties as well thanks to natural plant ingredients namely Meadow-foam Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil and Rosemary Leaf Extract.

I was relying a lot on Clarins lip oil as the gooeyness of the product sort of soothe the pain my lips. After a few days, I got tired of it. I was desperate for something moisturizing and light. I have 11 brand new unopened lip balm and I finally decided to open this up to use mainly because this is unscented, colour-free and I remember how good Lip Pure was in terms of moisturizing. Anything with heavy scent and colour will send a sharp pain to my lips. Now I am glad I have this, which I do not know what to do with it last time lol.

Lip Pure Lip Balm is available at all leading pharmacies and major supermarket outlets nationwide.
Price: RM17.90 for 4g

Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream 02 Glamour: There’s No Need To Rush Out To Get It. No Reason At All

Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream Glamour
Matte liquid lip is in trend. It is so highly sought after that almost every brand came out with something. And that makes every girl run for their life to the nearest store to get it. Silkygirl, our very own local brand too jump onto the whole matte liquid lip bandwagon with the release of Matte Junkie Lip Cream. When I found out about this from Instagram, it took me a few weeks to remember to check on it. And when I do, I could not find it anywhere! Then the chase begun. Everyone I know was literally hunting for it. I was told that it was sold out everywhere. Why am I not even surprised? Everyone from every corner including their mother and grandmother bought it. Hence the limited stock available. I gave up searching for it until one day I went to One Utama for lunch with my friend Charmaine and we walked pass a secluded Guardian store. I walked in randomly without any high hope that I will find anything. Guardian is my favourite drugstore to visit as they carry Catrice, which is my favourite drugstore brand at the moment. But voila! All the tester seems new and untouched and every single shades are fully stocked up. I love secluded store LOL.
