Elianto Satin Matte Rouge Lipstick and Mono Eyeshadow Review, Photos and Swatches


It's a lied that you never try Elianto brands before. Most of Elianto product is quite CHEAP, easily accessible and pretty affordable especially if you are beginners in makeup and sometimes they also do massive warehouse sales in Cheras, especially. I saw not many people do a review about this brands, so I decided to do a review and share my thought about their product. So,let's jump into the review.

ETUDE HOUSE AC Clean Up Mild BB Cushion Review, Photos and Swatches


I love everything about cushion. I wear cushion foundation almost everyday and I cannot live without cushion in my pouches. So, when Etude House comes out with another cushion product that specially made for skin trouble, I think I need to try.  From the name, we can correctly guesses that this BB Cushion is for acne-prone skin.



It comes in a green box ( just like AC Clinic Daily product colour).


Did you notice that Etude House is renewing their packaging style? Its much more simple and plain than before.  The cushion case is really compact and slim which is perfect for travel. Now, the era for bulky cushion is end.


There are 3 shades available; 01 Light Beige, 02 Natural Beige and 05 Honey Beige. I choose the lightest one and I'm quite afraid that the shades is the lightest but luckly it is not too dark or too light. The colour system seems quite odd as compared to other Etude House Cushion which is comes with the lightest one first. The shades is slightly darker.


I actually forgot to take pictures of the ingredient. Here I attach the ingredient.

Ingredients

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Zinc Oxide (Ci 77947), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Cyclohexasiloxane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Lauryl Peg-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Propanediol, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Allium Sativum (Garlic) Bulb Extract, Madecassoside, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Mannitol, Ampelopsis Japonica Root Extract, Saururus Chinensis Extract, Allium Cepa (Onion) Bulb Extract, Glycoproteins, Glyceryl Caprylate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Water, Dimethicone/Peg-10/15 Crosspolymer, Disodium Edta, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Butylene Glycol, Salicylic Acid, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Sorbitan Isostearate, Stearic Acid, Aluminum Hydroxide, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Zinc Gluconate, Caffeine, Caprylyl Glycol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Hexyl Laurate, Iron Oxides (Ci 77492), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Fragrance



 3 tones.
Light, Natural, and Honey Beige.


It has low to medium coverage. I actually expecting that high coverage since that this product is targeting for acne-prone skin users and the coverage is quite sheer and natural. I don't know why Etude House comes out with this kind of style.

The texture feels very light-weight and comfortable on the skin. I do feel like I applying skincare product on the skin because it has a medicine scented feel. I don't think you need another layer because the coverage is sheer and it will not covering the acne at all. If you can read from the description at the back of the box, it say it can conceal skin blemishes fast and effectively, I don't think that this product will do that job. It looks super natural on the skin and leave you with semi-matte but it doesn't feel drying at all.


It doesn't really last long, but if you pair it with a primer underneath and set it with powder, it will last quite a bit long for sure. I would really like to mention here that this is not sweat-proof or summer proof as it will start disappear once you start sweating. As you know Malaysia quite hot, so, these products are not really a good pair. The good thing about this product is it doesn't accentuate your pores; dryness or fine lines when it's wear off.




All in all, eventhough the coverage is sheer and longevity is bad but, if you prefer lack of coverage, then this product is your alley. I won't repurchase it as I don't prefer my cushion foundation gone during the day.

GIORGIO ARMANI #505 Lip Maestro Review, Photos, and Swatches


Another liquid lipstick from Giorgio Armani to try today! It's the Lip Maestro with a velvety-soft and matte lip stain. It's a vibrant pink colour and the most neon pink that looks good for Asian skin tones and suitable for daytime wear.

What it does:
Give lips ultimate comfort, silky texture, and a radiant-looking finish. Giorgio Armani introduces Lip Maestro: the next generation of lip color that imparts intensely illuminating color. This lip stain lets lips appear instantly plumped and radiant, while the non-sticky texture offers hours of hydration and comfort. It is infused with concentrated pigments that permeate the gel formula, offering an incredible depth of color that stays true, leaving the lips with a flawlessly matte, glowing look. 

Lip Maestro packaging is almost the same as regular Giorgio Armani product. The cap for the Lip Maestro is more to glossy red. The tube itself is transparent so you can see the colour on the spot. The shiny silver logo give me a luxurious feeling. The doe-foot applicator is really long and flexible; makes the application easier.





This offers you with full coverage liquid lipstick. #505 is a fully opaque colour which you are only needs one swipe for this. The consistency is light and creamy texture makes the application smooth and evenly. The formula feels a little bit wet at first and after that it dries down into matte. However, personally I feel that Lip Maestro is quite different from typical matte liquid lipstick which is more to dry side where the lip maestro is doesn't really dry down into matte. In contrast, as you can see from the photos, it dry down into matte with slightly glow and shiny finish that makes the lips look full and plump. It almost likes a velvety finish rather than matte on the lips. If you want matte, then you can blot it with tissue. It also does not have scent and can last almost 7 hours and left light stain after that.


Sadly, this is a limited edition colour.

Anyone who love pink lipstick and this is definitely your must liquid lipstick to have in your collection

NARS Velvet Lip Glide Le Palace and NARS Orgasm Blush Review, Photos and Swatches


Today we have two products to review and we will see whether these two products are worth to splurge:

1. NARS Velvet Lip Glide Le Palace 
2. NARS Orgasm Blush

NARS Velvet Lip Glide Le Palace 

I am a big fan of red lipstick, so, I was even more eager to give these a go and see how they look like on my lips. The formula is described as an innovative, long-lasting lip colour with a smooth application, semi-matte finish that provides ultimate hydration for your lips. The wand is supposed to coat like a normal lipstick while the formula glides on like a gloss. It's  too high promising for me. I'm expecting these will be good.


The packaging very sleek with matte back cap. It feels very sturdy and more like a glass than plastic. The square shape make these stand out, the pacakging remind me about 3ce lip lacquer packaging but this version much better. hehe


The doe foot applicator almost flat shaped which you can applies it beautifully and more precise application. I don't find any problem with the shape of the doe foot applicator.

This colour is the richest and sexiest colour that I always wear. It's full coverage, non-sticky, lightweight and stunning colour.  It give me the perfect balance of red tone colour that suit with my skin tone. The formula is very pigmented, creamy and supple with shiny finish. Only one dip into the tube to coat the lips are enough for full coverage lippie. However, it takes time to dry down but once it dry, the product staint on the lips and the colour remains intact. It lasts almost 8 hours after eating and after that you need to retouch back. I really really love the glossy effect and the plush look.

If you are prefer something that not striking, you can always go with a few of neutral which comes in a variety soft pink, beige tone or even nude colour. 



NARS Orgasm Blush

Who doesn't awe with NARS packaging! I love how the packaging is sleek Nars, despite their compact rubberized quite difficult to keep clean. It also has a mirror inside.

This shade has peachy pink with golden shimmer and look so pretty when I swatches it. When I put it on my cheeks, it seems quite weird where I have a pink toned highlighter on my cheeks. I find it works great as a sort of two-in-one highlighter and blush; you don't even need a blush for this. The highlighter create a nice glow effect while the peachy pink is warm the cheeks.


Though it quite weird for me but I believe I can get used to it. The blush are so pretty. I think I need to play with them more.


peachy pink with golden shimmer

It's pigmented which easy to control, provide warmer blush look and packs with golden shimmer. In terms of longevity, this blush easily lasts 8-7 hours.  The glow was still there but the blush fade off. I considered it as excellent in term of staying power.  The texture of this blusher is surprisingly not tacky. 

Look at how crazy the highlighter are! Good morning highlighter. Do you job NOW! LOL

Some people love this blush but some people is not. It depends on your preference. I did love the blush where I just dab a little bit of product on my cheeks for natural makeup look.  The blush perfect for a brighter lipstick color that match the whole face.

For the price point, these definitely a product that worth to splurge. The pigmentation very nice too.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Powder Translucent Review and Swatches


Did you feel happy once you looked at this stuff? You should!LOL

The powder actually comes in several variations including bronzer, translucent, light bronzer, and even a beige shade. Here, I got translucent, but hold on tight because since that, this is a powder, you shouldn't apply it as finishing powder or to apply all over your face as what its claim. You don't want your face to look like a disco ball. For me personally, when I looked first into it, this is most like a highlighter.

Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Storm Palette and Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream Review and Swatch


Everyone love Sleek Makeup especially i-Divine palette collection which is the most craziest pigmented shadow. My excitement went over when Sleek Makeup finally launched in Malaysia. You can get them at Sephora Malaysia or at Hermo.my via online. I've been loving this palette for quite sometime. My first palette from them is Sleek i-divine palette in vintage romance. That was my first palette from them. 

I am so thankful because they send this product to me and I think I need to share with you. This isn't a new palette but I was so keen enough when it launched because it always hard to get any Sleek Makeup product in Malaysia.
