Coastal Scents Mica Powders

Standard

Hi girls!

I just finished rearranging my room. Got two new shelves for my room since mine was hopeless. Anyhoos, I felt like I wanted to do a blog post, something short, I’m sorry you guys!! It’s just that I’m really tired but I still want to do a post for you guys 🙂

Lets get on with it. Today’s topic is about the Coastal Scents’s mica powders. Mica powder is a purified and crushed mica mineral. Mica powder can be used for Lipstick, Foundation, Rouge, Fiber Paint, Faux Paint, Coloring Candles, Coloring Soaps, Coloring Paint & Resin.

I got myself 4 shades of mica powders. And they are..

DUO CHROME BLUE GREEN, PARADISE BLACK PEARL, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, ANTIQUE GOLD

DUO CHROME BLUE GREEN, PARADISE BLACK PEARL, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, ANTIQUE GOLD

Swatches:

DUO CHROME BLUE GREEN, PARADISE BLACK PEARL, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, ANTIQUE GOLD (applied dry)

I’m very happy with the colors Ive chosen. They’re extremely pigmented, wet or dry. If you apply them wet, the colors would look more vibrant than how they already are. They’re pretty similar with Bare Minerals eye shadows, for me at least but this of course is cheaper. I totally recommend you guys to get these! Give em a try! You’ll love love LOVE them!

Now that is all chicas! Talk to you all soon!

Swatches For NYX’s Haute Jersey Leopard Couture

Standard

Good morning ladies!

I wasn’t supposed to wake up this early in the morning but under a few annoying reasons, I did! Anyways, I decided to do swatches for the NYX’s Haute Jersey Leopard Couture for you girls. I went online the other day and not many did blog swatches for this product, just a few videos from Youtube so I thought I would go ahead and do one for you all.

NYX HAUTE JERSEY LEOPARD COUTURE

On the first “page”, you have 24 eye shadows.

Now swatches for the other “page”

NYX HAUTE JERSEY LEOPARD COUTURE

BRONZERSThe furthest left being the top in the bronzer section

p/s: I love the last shade, the best of all three colors. I contour with this color.

L to R: pink blush, coral blush and the highlighter

And last but not least, the swatch for the mini lip glosses..

Pink lip gloss and a Coral lip gloss

The lip glosses are the bomb too! I wish they came in bigger tubes. These lip glosses have the same quality as the full sized ones. And you know I love them NYX lip glosses! 😉

So that is all, I hope this was helpful for you guys. Sorry if the swatches were a bit blurry, I used my phone to take the shots cause my camera was dead. So yeah, talk to you all again later.

KANEBO COFFRET D’OR 2 IN 1 LIPSTICK/LIP GLOSS

Standard

Ola lovelies!

I’m waiting for a friend to come over now, boy she’s late! (HAHA! Hope she’s not reading this) While waiting for her, I decided to do a blog post. I’ve been wanting to do a review on this Kanebo’s Coffret D’or 2 in 1 lipstick/lipgloss. It’s a gift from my sister, she went to Miri last month and she got me this!

At first, I thought it was a lipstick, so I pulled the cap off like how I normally do with a lipstick, I ended up damaging the cap. You actually need to twist the cap and you’ll see a lip gloss applicator.

They say it’s 2 in 1 because it’s opaque and creamy like a lipstick AND it also has a glossy effect like a lip gloss. I wouldn’t say that this product is a must have just cause there are cheaper products out there with a similar effect. Overall, I like this product. The downside is that it’s expensive. BND$40 for a lipstick/lip gloss? That’s way more expensive than Dior lipsticks. But if you feel like splurging on a product that does both solid color and a glossy look, try this! You may like it. They’ve over 12 shades altogether. Mine is in the shade PK-253.

PK-253 is a pinkish coral with gold shimmers in it. This color reminds me of NARS Orgasm. It’s a nice go to color, will suit all skin tones, I promise!

NYX has some good lipglosses too. Most of their shades are pretty opaque! And they’re fairly cheap too. So for those of you who don’t like to apply on lip gloss on top of a lipstick, then this is your kind of product 🙂

p/s: I TOTALLY LOVE THE PACKAGING! PRETTY HUH?

Until then, I’ll talk to you all soon!

Collective Haul! Again!

Standard

Hi lovelies!

It has been a while since Ive blogged. Sorry about that! I was busy with Hari Raya this past few weeks. Planned to write something here earlier today but uploading the pictures to the gallery was a pain! So.. This explains why I’m writing to you at this hour (it’s almost midnight fyi).

Lets just get on with it. I got a couple of things from NYX & Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals. I’m addicted to Bare Minerals lately. Initially, I was interested in their Buxom lipglosses set but they’re really pricey, instead I got their products in sets (which are waaaay more expensive! haha)

Sorry! My lighting is really bad. Everything looks grey here. Haha!

I got 3 NYX round lipsticks! Love these lipsticks. They’re opaque, creamy and glide on so smoothly on the lips.

NYX’S FIG, POWER, HEATHER

from L to R: NYX’S FIG, POWER, HEATHER

As you all already know that NYX’s lipsticks are AWESOME!I’m very happy with the colors I got.
Next thing that I got was the Bare Minerals Face Fashion.

This set contains 5 awesome products as you can see!

MINERAL BLUSH IN “CHEERFUL”

And lastly, this mini sized Buxom lipgloss in “BUNNY” is included in the set.

Next thing I got was the Bare Minerals’ All Over Face Color set. Yes, it comes with the bag too 🙂

This includes “Clear Radiance”, “True”, “Glee”, “Warmth” & a tapered blush brush. Pretty cool huh?

Next is..

BARE MINERALS FREE TO BE NATURALLY ADVENTUROUS 6 PIECE COLLECTION

This set has a pretty turquoise clutch, a lip gloss, a blush, two eye shadows & a shadow liner

lip gloss in “SUGAR COOKIE”

L to R: “Morning” (blush), “Exquisite” (eye shadow), ” Cleopatra” (eye shadow) & “Dare” (liner shadow)

And the last but not least is..

NYX’S HAUTE JERSEY ♥ LEOPARD COUTURE

24 colors of eye shadows! and a mirror on the next “page”

Andddd! When you flip it to the next “page”, there are..

You will get two lip glosses, three bronzers, two blushes and one highlighter. Oh! And dont forget there is another mirror on the left “page” as well! Awesome kit! I love this!!

Now, that is all for my haul. Some things I’ve tried and some things I haven’t so thats why I cant review them now, but I will slowly do a review on each product and tell you guys how I like it. So far, the ones I’ve tried like the bronzer in the NYX’s Haute Jersey kit, i love! Will update you guys shortly.

Until then, talk to you all soon!
