Further discount on Gransenbon Gran blushes @ BHG

By everbluec · October 9, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

 

I was checking out BHG sales and saw that Gransenbon blushes are having additional $1 off from the discount price of SD$15!


If you have read Iris's blog, you would have know by now that Gransenbon has been discontinued. That explain the discount and no worry, these blushes have expiry date up to 2014/2015.

I got shade #4... but when I open up at home, I dont think it's the No4 I want (it's not as orange as I remember... and it should be alot darker as compare to shade #11. Cos, when I compare it to my shade #11.. it's lighter!)

It look more like Shade #12 (cos I opened up a new piece(at BHG) to look at the shade as there are no tester). Oh well... this is still a pretty coral pink (maybe they labelled it wrongly).. so do open up and check the item before you purchase ^_^

Edit: According to Iris (click here for her closeup on all the shades), the testers (@ Clementi BHG) were mix up for shade #4 and #9.  (Cos shade #9 is the bright shimmery orange shade that I want! ^,~)

swatches...

That's all for now ^,~

close-up on some of the shades..

The neutral shades Skimp and Zephyr are a good nice highlight shades

 





Cobra is a black base with gold shimmers (it look olive green at some angle)


Crystal doesn't feel as creamy as compare to the others UD shades.. it was pretty sheer and have a pearly finishing.


I know, this wasn't THAT bright and colorful as compare to the other BOS(s).... but it does have some pretty gorgeous shades, if you never own any UD eyeshadows, this is a good palette to start with :)

Skin79 Lovely Girl BBcream for B.B. Skin

By everbluec · October 7, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Received a sweet surprise in the mail yesterday.

Oooh... baby!

To restore skin to its natural youthfulness, Lovely Girl BB Cream is pure, mild and gentle to the skin, providing adequate nourishment, 24 hour moisture, and protection that our skin needs. At the same time, it provides natural blemish coverage, leaving skin silky smooth and soft, with a velvety yet light texture.




From the release:::

->>> Made of natural ingredients
->>> Recommended for oily/ combination skin types, and is especially suitable for sensitive problem skin.
->>>
Baby Soft. Light texture BB cream that leaves skin silky smooth, velvety and soft.      
->>> Skin Nourishing. Packed with vitamins and minerals such as proteins, carbohydrates and chlorophyll that feed nutrients to restore health and youth to the skin.
->>> Moisturizing & Soothing. Mulberry, Marigold, and Portulaca Oleracea (Purslane) extracts rejuvenate exhausted and rough skin, locking in moisture all day long.   
->>> Evens skin tone, clear & shine-free. Made of excellent porosity powder that prevents oil-shine, it balances the skin tone and leaves you with a fresh, matte complexion throughout the day.
->>> Natural blemish coverage. Herb complex & chlorella extracts brighten dull complexions, while providing natural blemish coverage with protective, revitalizing and healing powers.

[Note: This bbcream does contain Mineral oil, there's alot of saying about Mineral oil, but there are no real prove that it will be harmful to your skin. (I'm pretty clueless about it too!!! So, I just avoid it as a skincare products, because mineral oil won't penetrate into the skin, and it's most suitable to use as a last step of skincare routine to create a barrier to prevent moisture loss. Anyway, I simply love it when it's one of the ingredients in cleansing oil.]

Skin79 Lovely Girl BBcream - Price:: SD$21.90 (50g)
Exclusively available at selected Watsons stores.

I also received a sweet and lovely tin of shimmer powder (Not sure whether this is a retail item.)

So pink and girly <3<3<3<3<3

The shimmery powder was filled inside the puff...

FRESH @ Sephora Singapore!

By everbluec · October 6, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

 

FRESH making its debut in Singapore's Sephora.


Their famous Sugar Lip Treatment (Price SD$29) Collection that elevates lip care to a brand new level! Designed to nourish, protect & perfect your pout!

Even since I read about Iris(Rouge deluxe) review on it... have been thinking about trying this out. I simply love the idea of sugar in lip products(or in toner)... cos it will calm and soothe the lips. And beside sugar is a good exfoliating ingredient.

Shylina Perfect Beauty Serum [Face primer - review]

By everbluec · October 6, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Shylina Perfect Beauty Serum is an organic face primer.

Shylina Perfect Beauty Serum aims to refine pores, reduce fine lines and smoother complexion! This serum is to be use after moisturizer(as the last step of your skincare routine) and also double up as a foundation primer. The velvety texture will create a smooth even surface for foundation and also let foundation to stay on longer. It will also give your complexion a subtle healthy glow.



Main ingredients list...
Seaweed extract with Idebenone "anti-aging protection formula forms the velvet-like skin surface protective film that promotes the absorption of ingredients. Coupled with vitamin A, E and collagen to reduce appearance of pores and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.



PS[Note]: This is a day time use skincare product... use it once per day, as the last step of your skincare routine(I use it after my sunblock). Apply the serum on the whole face and avoid using it around the eye area. Wait for 5~10 secs before your base makeup.


Check out the texture... it feel like the La Roche-Posay

Comparing with La Roche-Posay Cicaplast

Cicaplast feel more oily and wet as compare to Shylina PBS.

After blending out both serum, Cicaplast still feel abit oily on the skin where Perfect beauty serum has a smooth velvety finishing.

My thoughts after trying the serum out for a month::
-> Doesn't irritate or cause any break-out on my skin
-> Not too rich nor oily on my combination skin
-> I like that it feel really smooth and the foundation glide on smoothy on my face.
-> I don't see any visible improvement on my skin/pores texture (it does look moist and supple- it might be the result from the skincares I'm using.. cos I notice that my skin texture have been improving even before I start using this serum) BUT, It does made my face texture feel smoother (touch my face with makeup on)
-> Foundation last "abit" longer.
-> It's a nice primer that wont cake up the foundation.
-> Oil control: Not oil, it's all depend on the type of foundation I use.
-> Does make fine lines look less dry and visible
-> When I apply the serum on my face.. it doesn't look like it will do anything to the skin/complextion (minimize pores, reduce fine lines, even out skintone).. it will show visible results only after I layer on the foundation.. the pores look less "bigger/deeper" and fine lines are reduced.
-> It was pretty hydrating.
-> Doesn't crash with my skincares products.

This type of skin improving product normally took way longer then 1month to see visible result. So far, I like it as it doesn't cause any harm on my skin and it does make my skin feel abit different. I will kept using it and hoping to see my skin getting better and better.^_^

It just made me feel good(emotionally wise) thinking that I'm piling alot of good healing ingredients on my skin by using various products from skincares to skincare properties cosmetics.

Price: SD$30

2011 M∙A∙C Fall Colour [Cindy Sherman Collection] Midnight Blue, Angel Flame and Wild Colour

By everbluec · October 5, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

[Sharing]

Personally.. I find that this fall collection was rather interesting.. because Cindy Sherman's "art" was pretty cool and creepy (if you are familiar with her works... one look at the campaign pics you will know! lolx). Anyway, take off the art.. the collection was pretty nice!! I know abit too much "colors" for Fall right (but really, who cares?)

M∙A∙C Fall Colour: Angel Flame
A glamorously arrestingly artistic assortment including an Eye Shadow Quad, Lipglass, Mineralize Skinfinish and the limited life re-appearance of the Jumbo Penultimate.


The lightscapade mineralize skinfinish look really yummy!!! And it's Mag's (makeupstash) fave!! Check out her post on this MSF.


M∙A∙C Fall Colour: Wild Colour
A wild, whimsical & wonderful palette. Stars Small Eye Shadows, Pigment, M•A•C Artist favourite Chromographic Pencil, & Lipstick.


M∙A∙C Fall Colour: Midnight Blue
A well-delineated, graphic look featuring an Eye Shadow Quad, Pigment, Fluidline, Lip Erase, and Lipsticks including M•A•C Artist favourites X-S and Fleshpot along with Nail Lacquer and Bronzing Powder. (This feel more like a fall collection, right? :b)
