Hair Treatments -Aesop -Rose Hair & Scalp Moisturizing Masque

on 12/11/2017 12:32:00 AM

Expensive ?! Yes!
But it’s really a good product - best treatment for scalp , if your hair is chemically processed , over and over again - this might be not work! I love it because it smells great , can prevent my hair from loss and yet’s it’s very moisturizing without weighting down the hair’s strand.

Well I had heard hype about this product forever and finally decides to give it a try. I have very oily skin and had heard it was a good product to use. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. My face got very oily and quickly. Even more so than with liquid foundation!

Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane -Verbena Frappé Body Cream

on 12/11/2017 12:17:00 AM

This is an ultra light cream that's very fluffy in texture and has a refreshing citrus scent. It absorbs super fast and is very cooling, It provides light moisturizing so if you have very dry skin then this wouldn't be right for you. I imagine this would be fantastic on a hot day or after sun treatment especially if you pop it in the fridge. Two things that I didn't like about it is 1) the price, it's expensive and because it's so light you'll go through the tub really quickly and 2) I don't know if I bought a defected product but the cream had a weird grit when I first applied it. I mean, when you dip your fingers into the tub it's nice and fluffy then when you apply and spread it on your body it has a slightly gritty texture that quickly disappears.I got used to it pretty quickly but it was totally unexpected and weird enough for me that I don't intend to repurchase now that I've run out of it.

Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell -Dr. Pepper lipsmackers

My go-to lip balm. Just a wash of natural color, and keeps my prone-to-chapping lips hydrated.


Lips -Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm Red Dahlia

Love this color of this lip balm, but despite being a Burt's Bees product - which I expected to be super-hydrating -this product dries my lips out. It's back to my trusty Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker,which is only a tad less pigmented than this balm, but never dries my lips out.

The lightest shade is far too dark and orange for me, and oxidises even more dark and orange.


Treatments (Face) -Unlisted Brand -Melaleuca Sei Bella Timeless Age-Defying Serum

I get lots of discolorations/melasma-ish spots, and sun-induced freckles. They bug me, so I decided to try this serum, which claims to lighten sun spots and discoloration. This is an AHA Serum with a relatively new acid complex called AHCare®L 65. This ingredient is composed of an amino acid, arginine, and lactic acid. It works as an amphoteric hydroxy complex used for exfoliation, but it is known to be gentle, and cause much less stinging (if any) than Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, or Citric Acid. It does not cause redness/irritation. My skin can handle Glycolic Aha products only to a point. Even though my skin is quite resistant (Baumann ORPT), I had a bad experience with Glycolic Acid products a few years ago. For comparison, for several years, I used prescription Tretinoin .5% every single night, and I even used 1% for while. It never bothered my skin! At all! However, DCL (Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories...from derm's office) AHA Resurfacing Lotion damn-near burned my face off. It turned my neck into a leathery collar that eventually shed itself in pieces, like snakeskin. I love Salicylic Acid products to control breakouts and keep spores spiffy, but it does nothing for my discolorations.This Timless Serum with Lactic Acid, so far, is making me very happy! I've have been using it for 3 months. My skin and pores are clear, and I believe I am starting to see some fading of the paler discolorations. My face looks a little more even-toned, and nobody made comments like, "There's dirt on your cheek", etc. Timeless is defintely gentle, but it's luxurious, too. It has ingredients that immeditately make your skin look and feel good, so it's pleasant to apply. This also contains the powerhouse Vitamin C ester, which is like happy juice for my skin. My skin immediately appears evergized and glowing. This is expertly and uniquely formulated. It's not any run-of-the-mill cosmetic. I find it to make my skin look and feel good without causing any negatime reactions. The price is excellent and one bottle lasts for 2 months.

Crème -Maybelline -Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation

One of the worst foundations I have ever used. Although it has a lovely mousse-like texture, it's nevertheless difficult to blend. It accentuates pores, and oddly enough, seems to accentuate them more if applied over a primer or a physical sunblock. It also accentuates even the tiniest bit of dryness.

I've gone thogh two bottles of this, and I do this it smells nice. Is it my favourite? Not really, but I would buy it again. It is a slightly more mature scent, I find, so do not buy this expecting it to smell of candy. I love the packaging, I think the resemblance to the Saint Basil's Cathedral is so pretty.

Lotions/ Creams -Kiehl's -Creme de corps soy milk and honey whipped body butter

on 12/11/2017 12:02:00 AM

foto

Performance wise, this body butter is excellent -it absorbs quickly, feels indulgent, has a relaxing smell and kept my dry skin moisturized literally the entire day. The only reason it's only 4 lippies for me is because I live in the tropics and found it to be a little bit heavy for me. The lotion might have been a better option. It's just that with the word 'whipped' there I expected a mousse or souffle-like consistency which was what I experienced with L'occitane's. In fact I also happened to receive a Body Shop body butter as a gift and even I found the texture for that to be 'lighter' than this. Nevertheless, like the previous reviewer, if I was abroad in a cold climate I wouldn't hesitate to reach for this again.


Lipstick -Rimmel -Nude Collection by Kate 40

Quite a nice peachy toned lipstick but extremely light, even for me, and I'm a piece of paper. It blends into my skin mostly, especially when my face has a slight tan. It does emphasise the lip texture quite a bit, but it is very creamy and pale so that is expected often. With a lip liner this works quite well and I do really like the colour on me (WILL NOT WORK FOR DEEPER SKIN TONES).

Eye Shadow -MAC -Paint Pot in Painterly

One of my favorite MAC eye shadow.
Simply put this is an awesome color. I can make dramatic eyes with darker colors in the corner or keep it soft and simple with this all over lid and wedge in crease.


Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand -BYS Nude Palettes

The shades are nice and the layout is marvellous, however, the matte shades are chalky and the shimmer shades are too stiff. I do not hate these, in fact I do use them, however they are not ideal and the pigmentation is lacking. For the shimmer shades I suggest to scrape off a little and use a flat shader brush to lay onto glitter glue, it sticks better and has more vibrancy that way. In general you can make these work, certainly. However, it does take effort.


Lipstick -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills -Matte Lipstick

on 12/10/2017 11:52:00 PM

I bought two of these, Griffin and Dusty Mauve, because I loved the picture so much (the display of the blonde with black eyeshadow and dark taupe-grey lipstick). I was ready to change my eyeshadow palette to greys and blacks to get this total look. Alas, it will not be necessary because this look is unattainable. With the tester I couldn't get that shade using Griffin or any other shade (or the liquid lipsticks). I thought when I added Dusty Mauve it almost looked like it. Well, it doesn't really. I have yet to duplicate that shade, and I've included experiments with MAC and other lipsticks. But I'm too stubborn to throw it out and will keep it to mix with other shades.

Both shades are thick, dry, and not attractive worn alone. I will rarely use Dusty Mauve which is pale and boring but I found I can add almost any red lipstick to Griffin and get a beautiful shade. It's still not dark taupe grey, but at least it's not the matte steel grey in the tube (nothing like pictures on line!). I consider it false advertising to claim a picture is a certain shade when it was created by blending a concoction that they have no intention of revealing, or a special lighting effect. Whatever their reason, I'm not going to be buying any more of these.


Eye Shadow -Maybelline -ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad in Chai Latte

I like these. I think they are Maybelline eye shadows that actually work. I own two of these palettes and they both work rather well, they blend well and have good pigmentation (the applicators are garbage, don't even mess around with those). There are a lot of shiny shades though, especially of those labelled "crease" and I do not enjoy shiny crease shades. Overall these palettes are worth checking out.
