Shu Some Love

IMG_4686.JPG

On one of my recent hauls, i’ve managed to get my hands on some Shu Uemura products from Vie Beauty sale. Of course, I did hope that I can get the eyelash curler since I have been in love with this curler for many years. But unfortunately, there was none although I did get some other things I can try.

Shu Uemura Face Architect Smooth Fit Fluid Foundation in 565 Medium Light Sand
Yes, another liquid foundation! To be honest, I havent opened this one yet since I just opened my Guerlain Parure Gold foundation… And I have 6 bottles in rotation. I’ll definitely let you all know how this one works!

Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow in Medium Brown, Soft Gold, Dark Green and Creamy Eye shadow in Medium Olive
These are really good shadows, whether its pressed or cream. I cant wait to put them all together in a z palette and show you all. They are pigmented and true to the color in pan. I do recommend these. All colors are great for Fall Winter!

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited in 911
Very creamy and has a touch of gloss. I do like but I find the color too nude. It would be great to match with a smokey eye look.

Shu Uemura False Eye Lashes in 07 Partial Flare
Ive been prepping a small wedding makeup set for myself, so this one is an optional part of it. I like that theyre not too “single” like normal lashes which would be easy for me to use!

Trying any new products lately?

Glowing in Gold with Guerlain

IMG_4550.JPG

IMG_4551.JPG

Recently, Luxasia had their annual mega bazaar sale nearby my office that I couldnt resist but to have a nosey. There were loads of perfume on sale and a bit of skincare but what really and will always get my attention was their small section for makeup which isnt hard to spot because all ladies are flocking and I dont want to exaggerate but were almost gonna eat other just to score a few good deals. So being small that I am, I managed to squeeze my way in and grabbed the stuff that I want to get and in 10 minutes I found myself queueing to pay. Lol.

Here’s all what I got:

Guerlain Parure Gold Rejuvenating Gold Radiance Foundation in Beige Naturel 03

After reading a few other reviews, I found out that this foundation is the most expensive one I have ever come across with a price of £85. OMG. I wouldnt buy it on regular price even though it as gold particles in it that seriously makes my skin look so good and glowy. You know that lit from within gorgeousness that can boost your confidence. It smells good and feels great on skin, never heavy. It has spf15 although the shades are quite tricky because it is generally a shade darker from the normal shade colors we know. I do recommend this but as long as youre willing to spend!

Guerlain Parure De Lumiere Light-Diffusing Foundation Moisture & Comfort in Ambre Clair 32

This is such a luxurious product not just by the way it looks but the way it feels. I was able to try it but I havent opened this one yet but I will soon. It comes in a heavy glass pot cause its a cream with a spatula. I think this shade is light for me but I surely will get away with it by mixing a dark foundation or using a bronzing powder to set on top.

Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-made Bronzing Powder in 00 Nude

Such a pretty, pretty bronzer that I couldnt say no! I dont want to touch cause its so pretty! But, eventually I resisted and used it! it has 4 shades in it so you can customized your bronzer shade by just swirling your brush on it. Custom-made bronze goddess, I say.

Guerlain Ombre Eclat I Couleur Eyeshadow in 183 L’instant D’une Caresse

Whatever that means, Im sure it makes me feel like its a shade thats just as pretty as you are naked. Its a naked muted grey-nude that is pretty shimmer. Just so gorgeous!

Guerlain The Eyebrow Pencil in Brun Ideal 01

Not my most favorite among the bunch but ill still give it a few more try. Its an eyebrow pencil with a brush end and sharpener thats included in box. Feels nice and luxurious.

Guerlain Fard Metal Iridiscent Eyeshadow in 01 Cuirve Ora

This is my favorite amongst them all! Its just a gorgeous warm rose gold color loose eyeshadow thats so pigmented and easy to use. Perfect for Fall Winter!

Guerlain Khol Me Kajal The Original Creamy Eyeliner in 01 Noir Volcanique

This is a pure black eyeliner that is so easy to work with. I recommend this and even though its pricey, im sure you wont be disappointed. A very good staple classic.

Guerlain Rouge Exceptional Complete Lip Colour in 15 Galaine

This is the perfect shade of my lips.
I cant believe I found the exact color of my lips in a bullet. So creamy and moisturizing that it goes perfectly with Nyx lipliner in Nude Pink. My current lethal nude combination.

I love almost all of what I got! Its so gorgeous and luxurious at the same time. Here, ive used the Parure Gold Foundation, Lipstick, Eyeliner, Eyebrow Pencil, Eyeshadows and Bronzer.

Front Cover New Style Queen Makeup Set

IMG_3310.JPG
I always used to think buying makeup sets is not my fave thing to do but until I got this Front Cover Style Queen Makeup Set, I actually took back the idea.

IMG_3311.JPG

This kit is consist of the following:

  • 7 baked shimmer mini dome eyeshadows – vanilla ice (ivory), peanut (light pink), cumin (light beige coral),sandstone (light gold), brunette (auburn),grey grey, amber green (light emerald green)
  • 6 full size round matte eyeshadows – peach, garcie grey, jenny wren, brown cork, burnt cork, bodstock black
  • 6 sheer lip glosses – langoustine, Icy pink, singed pink, peru, red moon, brickwall
  • 2 cheek domes (blush/highlighter) – gold-orange-pink, light pink-light yellow-light blue
  • 2 pressed pigments- saddle brown, coal hoal
  • 1 mascara
  • 1 shadowline liquid eyeliner – transforms eyeshadow into eyeliner
  • 1 black eyeliner with smudger
  • Cheek Brush
  • Fluff + Buff Brush
  • Rounded Shader Eye Brush
  • Point + Eye Brush
  • Mini Blender Eye Brush
  • Retractable Lip Brush
  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Mini Lash Curler

You do get a lot with this kit plus almost all of it is great. I love the eyeshadows, cheek domes, shadowline, pressed pigments and the brushes. Although the pigmentation of the lipglosses are not amazing. They seem to be more like a very light lip gloss. Id rather use them as cheek stains.

Overall, its good but I wont buy them on regular price of £35., I only got mine for £15. Unfortunately, you cant get it anymore but do watch out for other kits that Front Cover does.

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case Palette Review

IMG_3316.JPG
As part of my birthday haul, I was invited by my friend to go to a Sephora sale last month and I manage to get this… well amongst the few I also picked up. Hehe. So, this retailed at 75SGD last Fall’13 then dropped to 35SGD (as far as I can remember.. sorry!) which I wanted to buy last year but I unfortunately didn’t have the extra dough to do so.

This is a two-tier palette that can almost complete a whole face look. Almost all of the shades are exclusive and is such a great bargain specially if you need it for traveling.

IMG_3319-0.JPG
Tier 1:

Eyeshadows (all exclusive):

  1. Nameless – medium gray brown satin finish
  2. Remix – rich purple shimmer with micro glitter
  3. Shakedown – deep brown gunmetal satin finish
  4. Minor Sin – champagne pink satin finish
  5. Bleach – yellow beige matte

Eyeliner:

  1. Urban Decay Travel Size 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero – basic black cream eyeliner pencil

Tier 2:

Blush (all exclusive):

  1. Overexposed – dusty rose leaning on brown
  2. Temper – soft baby pink

Highlighter (exclusive):

  1. Glint – soft beige pink shimmer

Lips:

  1. Full Size Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild – creamy cool pink

IMG_3322.JPG

Urban Decay’s eyeshadow pigmentation needs no explanation. Theyre tried and tested and wont let you down. As for the blush, you should have a light hand when applying it or else it’ll pack on and will make you look like a clown. While the highlighter appears to be lighter when applied. As for the lipgloss, I love the texture and doesn’t have a plumping ingredient which I like. The color might look strong but its a flattering pink that is great either day or night shade. Lastly, I wish that they placed in Perversion over Zero, is just that this eyeliner is a basic black while I love blackest black shade.

Over all I love this palette. This is a great one for me to bring when I travel as well as try more colors which is aside from browns, taupes, and golds. I recommend this although you cant get it anywhere anymore. Alhough, you can still get the eyeliner and lipglosses from Urban Decay.

Till the next post!

NARS HAUL: Eyes

Hey, guys! Continuing my NARS haul, here are the eye products ive got. I manage to control myself a lot and just picked up colors that I know I would be using a LOT.

Here, I have NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Alhambra. The second set of colors that I love in eyeshadows aside from neutral browns are champagne pink and gold. They are so lovely and pigmented that I just cant say no! You can use this as a highlighter in your inner corners of the eyes or as a lid color instead. These two colors are great specially if your traveling and you need to brighten up you peepers!

Ive been loyal with Urban Decay for quite some time already, specifically on their Naked line. This is just a quick review of my fave ones on the line.
Urban Decay Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup
Certainly my all time fave foundation, this liquid light-medium coverage foundation is great to use may it be warm and humid or cold countries. Its keeps my skin looking healthy and moisturized, never cakey or oily. It never felt like im wearing too much makeup and lets my skin breathe. Im using shade 4.0 ( which is im NC30/35 with MAC, 3.0 with Chanel & Honey with No.7 of Boots) and its the perfect shade for my skin. I never had any breakouts with my skin despite im a combination skin. Its pretty hard for me to get foundations since my skin is sensitive. Its my go-to foundation for any day. But as for the plastic bottle, i really hope that they could improve that. Once the silver coating of the bottle gets wet with the product, it start to chip. For the price of s$62, i wish they can improve on that part cause the product is amazing!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

As what we can see, its a BB cream, which should be as good as almost as a foundation but for me it didnt work like that. Although i use this product for its other purposes; a primer, sunscreen, and moisturizer. I put this on before anything else i would use for my face. It regulated my skin, had very less breakout, kept it moisturized. For the price of s$42 thats lasts me 3-4 months (i have already used 3 bottles of this beauty), i think its reasonable.

Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion in Original

Everybody has raved about this product and i gotta say, this is my makeup box regular. It never failed me in ever since the day i first used it. It works wonders with any eye makeup product i used it with. From a very early morning start with my work (which requires a lot stress, moving around and sweating lol) to my dance workouts, dinner dates with my boyfriend, and a late night party with friends… This baby made my makeup last and plastered on my face since i applied it on 7:30am! Highly-recommended, price is just right for S$33 thats lasts for 4 months. Its a bestfriend in a bottle!

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

My most coveted eyeshadow palette that i recently purchased. The smooth, silky, never-chalky powder of each has a great color pay-off. My daily makeup is normally consist with the colors of this palette. The colors are perfect from day til night. A whole lot of experimentation can be done too! Love, love this product! Plus its reasonably priced (s$42)!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

One of my go-to makeup palette and has served me for more than a year! Didn’t regret for paying s$88 cause its a great palette that i think every single neutral makeup lover should have. Lets not talk about the color pay-off cause Urban Decay is really great with that!

Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Flushed

This travel size lipgloss came with the Naked 2 palette for free. I am not a big fan of lipglosses cause i just dont want my lips too glossy or shiny, but this one is good. Its night over glossy, just with the right shine; gets a minty feel when you apply it on your puckers; and the color goes very well with any makeup i do with the Naked 2 palette. Priced at $19 in Urban Decay.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Perversion (not shown in the picture)

First of, i wasnt able to include it anymore cause i ran out of it and i havent bough it again. I had my quest for the perfect tightlining pencil that i bought this one to try. The matte black and creamy texture of this is so amazing and goes really well on my skin. Its also great for blending out with eyeshadow if you want to use it as one. Unfortunately, it doesnt stay on long on my tightlines. I wear eye contacts everyday, whole day which is why i tried it after hearing good stuff about it. But i shall only use it as an eyeshadow only. Priced at $19 in Urban Decay

Well, i hope that was helpful to y’all! The reviews are based on my personal experience but it might be different with yours! So i suggest that you try on the testers at Urban Decay counters first before you purchase 😊

Thank you guys! Til the next review!
