[Haul + Swatches]
Last month, when ming[miwitch] was sent to Hongkong (for work), she didn't know whether she got time to shop around but "die die" MUST get some Lavshuca lipsticks(lolx)... so I told her I want the moist makeup base and a "green" eyeshadow palette from the brand. ^,~
I've tried their pore concealing makeup base and I like it.... so I'm feel like trying their moist version.
The texture of the makeup base was really similar to the pore concealing makeup base(Just abit moist). The color was in light pink shade.. but it doesn't make your face look pale or anything after blending out and absorbed into the skin. It does brighten up the complexion abit :)
OK, let compare both Pore concealing and Moist makeup base...
Pore Concealing Makeup Base is in beige tone.. it doesn't have much coverage, but it does minimize pores and even out complexion.
Both bases feel kinda like RMK makeup base.. but without the silicone feel and less "wet"
Lavshuca 3D eyeshadow palette in GN-1

Check out swatches on 3D eyeshadow Palette in BR-2 (Click Click)
I can't remember how much both products cost.. think it's around HK$79-$88 (Which was less then SD$14 each)
Afew weeks ago - Ming(miwitch) gave me the eyeshadow quint from Lavshuca where she got it from her previous HongKong trip.
she said that the cool tone browns don't look good on her skintone... and yeah~ that I got to try the eyeshadows(We dont have this in Singapore) After using it for a few times... I quite like the texture and how easy this eyeshadow blends.
It's not as creamy as the Wet&Wild or rich and pigmented like Urban Decay.. but it's smooth and last quite well on my lids. (When I wore these eyeshadows.. I'm either using MAC Paintery Paintpot or Limecrime eyeshadow helper.) The eyeshadows doesn't creases on me. (Limecrime eyeshadow helper is amazing- will be doing a review on it soon)
swatches in varous lighting...
Above swatches were swatched without any primer/base. The 2 pics before are with Limcrime eyeshadow help.
Now I can't wait to try out their others shades... like green ^,~
That's all for now :)
Next up would be a mask review.
I didn't do much hauling "entries" lately (well, I wanna think that.. cos I still feel like I have been spending non-stop, lolx) and these are some stuff that I guess worth mentioning? (I noticed that most of the stuff I bought were repurchased.. so not going to include it.)
Last Month Iris went to US/UK and so nice of her to help afew of us to CP some stuff (Thank you very much Iris ^_^ and she also included a lip brush! <3 )
Sleek Caribbean collection -Curacao palette (£6.99) and Aruba blush (£4.29)
Sleek Oh So Special Palette (£6.99)
Lime Crime eyeshadow helper (USD$18.50)
swatches of the palettes coming up soon..
The cream was very creamy (I havent try this on my lids yet, and I believe it will be a pretty crease free base... cos the swatches I did at the back of my hand have a "stiff" finishing and it grab/stick on the skin really well!)
Got this Kate lasting high coverage liquid foundation during the Watson buy 2 get 1 free promotion (share it with Verlyn)
This does contain Mineral Oil (so if you have sensitive skin, pls remember to do a swatch test before purchasing) I donno why most kanebo products even skincares do contain mineral oil(I dont mind mineral oil in cleansing oil.. but on skincares and makeup products, I will always think twice and do a swatch test before buying.)
MAC Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation for my sis (She love full coverage foundation)
TOPSHOP skin glow in light [Price: SD$23]
This have a very pretty pinkish glow.. (Haven't try this on my skin yet.. if this is NICE, I think I will get the dark one- cos the bronze shade also look nice~)
Aquamoist Moisture Cleansing oil (Got this at the CozyCot event) Price: SD$13+(after discount)
Gransenbon Blush in 11 Sugar Marmalade (It a light coral shade- but it was so hard to capture the color on camera)
Price: SD$15 AT BHG (promotion price)
Vichy Night Cream (Price: SD$29) repurchased product.. I just wanna say... I LOVE this alot!!!!!
Eyedrops.. I love using eyedrops/eye's wash cos my eyes are always having irritation cause by my sinus problem!!
And it can be double up as cleanser for eyes to remove all traces of powder/mascara/dust that traps inside the eyelids.(We might not feel or see it.. BUT buildup of dirts are collecting inside!!!!)
Optrex is my favourite!
If you have tried any refreshing eyedrops, do share with me (I'm a non contact lens user- so I can't use lubricant eyedrops meant for contact lens user right? Or I can still use it??)
Thanks Verlyn for this 2 pcs of Hello Kitty - My beauty diary Masks
