L'Oreal - The One Sweep Eye Shadow & Mascara

In this review I will be discussing the L'Oreal - The One Sweep Eye Shadow & Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara.  The palette set that I got is 519 - Playful for Brown Eyes and Black Quartz for Brown Eyes Mascara.  I tried both of the items and personally I like the pigmentation of the Eye Shadow, but I'm not too keen on the one sweep idea.  The reason why I don't like the one sweep idea is because the applicator doesn't fit my eye shape that well.  I have smaller eyes and that it's hard for me to achieve that complete look.  But for those who are always on a hurry this is a great palette for you to try because of the one sweep method which is simple and fast.  As for the Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara I do like the fact that it is clump-free, flake and smudge resistant.  I really didn't see that it lengthens my eyelashes, but I do like the illuminating topcoat that is infused with light-reflecting pearls making my eyelashes sparkly.

Here are some pictures of me testing this product:

New FOTD Look - March 2011

I finally decided to do a look, but wasn't aiming for any particular look.  I used drugstore brands for this FOTD look.  For my eyes I used the Wet N Wild - Silent Treatment and for my lips I used two different shades of the Maybelline 24 hours lipcolors in Timeless Rose and Wear on Wildberry.  In the first pic I'm wearing Timeless Rose and I really like this shades more than the other lip colors I got.  The second pic I'm wearing, Wear on Wilbdberry and the shade is more brighter and bold, which I had a hard time pulling this look off.  Overall it's a simple look.

Products that I used for this look:
  • Reviva Lab Makeup Primer
  • Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer - in Light to Medium Tint
  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - Rose
  • Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner
  • Clinique Concealer
  • Rimmel London Pencil Color 004 Black - eyebrow 
  • Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara
  • Mirabella Blush 
  • Wet N Wild - Silent Treatment Palette
  • Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color - Timeless Rose & Wear on Wildberry 
I'm still new working with my new camera, but I see the difference that it's a lot more sharper than my other camera.  This new camera is harder to operate because I don't have a remote.  I'll try to operate with my tripod in the future.

In this post I will be reviewing Reviva Labs - New Makeup Primer that I received a few days ago.  Reviva Labs was discovered back in 1973 by Stephen Strassler, who was one of America's pioneer Aestheticians.  Reviva Labs products are mainly focus on natural ingredients paraben free and most of their products can be found in Health Food & Whole Foods Stores.  Their products are never engaged to test on animals as well.
Product Review - New Makeup Primer
The makeup primer ingredients contains: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol), Olive Oil, Coenzyme Q10, Squalane.  

The benefits of using this makeup primer includes:
  • Perfect skin by refining the texture. Fill in lines, conceals pores and control excess oil.
  • Help skin instantly look and feel smooth and silky.
  • Helps makeup foundation last longer (safe under eye shadow, too)
  • And  COQ10 adds protective antioxidant action.
  • For any skin type, even oily.  You get the oil control you want, along with soft supple skin.
  • Completely fragrance-free and non-comedogenic (which means it won't cause clogged pores and breakouts)
Personal thoughts & Review:
I'm amazed that this makeup primer provided a silky smooth clear gel like texture on my face that lasted the whole entire day.  It works great with or without makeups when applied.  I also like that it's fragrance free. Unlike the Makeup Forever primer, the Makeup Forever primer has a light floral scent that contains Argania Spinosa Kerrnel & Capparis Spinosa extract, which occasionally I'm seasonally allergic to some types of flowers.  Also the Reviva makeup primer works well with my tinted moisturizer on top of it, leaving me a dewy glow look in the morning.

This Reviva New Makeup Primer is retailing on their website for $19.50 US

Enclosed are some pictures I took of the product:

Yu-Be Cream

For those who suffer like me during the winter time with dry face and hands, I would like to recommend this amazing cream call Yu-Be Cream. This is Japan's #1 medicated, vitamin-enriched moisturizing cream. I'm amazed how this cream instantly moisturize my face and hands. The only thing that you might not like is the smell, it does smell medicated like Vicks or this Hong Kong medicated cream called MOPIKO; a cream to stop itching from bug bites. Currently this cream is selling at Sephora stores and online retailing about $15 dollars.

Have you tried this before? What do you think of it?

      Darkness False Eyelashes

      In this post I will be posting about Darkness False Eyelashes.  I'm not the type to use false eyelashes and I'm no expert in applying falsie to my daily makeup routine.  I'm a makeup addict but not a makeup expert yet,  I still have a very long way on learning these little tips and tricks.  In those two rare special occasion I had used false eyelashes at my own wedding and my friend's wedding.  I have never applied false lashes on my own before, I let the professional makeup artist to do it for me.  Applying false eyelashes on myself is like waiting for a disaster to happen. 

      But I'm intrigue in learning to apply False Eyelashes on myself one day on my own. So recently I went on a little mini splurge and got some of these falsie called Darkness False Eyelashes at my local Asian beauty store.  I didn't do any research of which brands are better, but I saw a lot of people been using these Darkness brand on blogs and on youtube.  I'm not even familiar of differentiating the size of the lashes, so I got a few different sizes just to play around with it.  The ones that I got comes in two pairs a set and usually these cost $5 dollars for a box.  Since there's a promotion, so I went ahead and brought 3 boxes for $10 dollars, which is total of 6 pairs of eyelashes.  I can't wait to try these out just to play around with these when I have time in the near future.
