Benefit Bad Gal Eye Pencil

Standard

Hey yall!

I know I said I was gonna do The Balm Cosmetics part 2 tonight but I decided to blog about something really short just cause I haven’t taken pictures of the other The Balm products. My bad!

But anyways, I did get an eyeliner from Benefit and its the infamous Bad Gal smoldering black eye pencil. Ive seen this product a couple of times and I didn’t really feel like I needed another black pencil liner especially when it’s pricey. But that day, I felt like I needed a pencil eyeliner cause I was running out of my Urban Decay Zero. So here its..

And it looks like an ordinary pencil liner only bulkier

And a swatch of it:

It is not the blackest black, it isnt as black as Urban Decay’s Zero but I absolutely love it. It stays on my waterline. Initially I was worried about the size, since its bigger than an ordinary pencil I thought it would be harder to apply with it but nah, no problemo. This doesn’t claim to be waterproof but its okay for me, it does stay for hours so I’m good with that. Anddd the most part is that it is also easy to blend this if you wanna smoke out the look.

So thumbs up for Benefit. Again Benefit, you never disappoint me. So girls, if you’re looking for more than just your average drugstore liners, check this out! You wont be disapointed.

 

Price: BND 44.90

TheBalm Cosmetics Part 1

Standard

Hi all!

I know I havent blogged for months now and I apologise for that. I’ve been really busy and everything’s just hectic and finally now I’ve the chance to blog again! So without further adieu, lets get on to my review and swatches.

What I will be showing you girls today are the things I got last month. Oh this is just half of what I will be showing you, the other half I will probably blog about it tonight or tomorrow. I dont want this to be THAT long.

So I got meself some TheBalm goodies. I really love their products! And yes I say this to all the products I talk about but seriously, people should be raving about The Balm too you know.

Sasa Cosmetics are available in Miri Malaysia right now for those of you who dont know. And The Balm is sold in Sasa Cosmetics. The price is an okay okay for me but I was lucky enough that when I was there all the products were 15% off. Great deal!

Cabana Boy: A mauvy pink blush with a satin finish similar to NYX’s Spice

Frat Boy: A peachy pink blush with a satin finish

Down Boy: Baby pink blush with a satin finish similar to Well Dressed by MAC. This is my fav out of all!

The price for each is RM65

I’m not a big fan of highlighters. I dont find myself using a lot of times but this highlighter is amazing!

I present to you Mary Lou Manizer

This is how the compact looks like. This is a huge amount of highlighter girls. It contains 8.5g of shimmering goodness. The best part is you can use it for eyes as well as face.

20120311-171356.jpg
You’ve got a nice big mirror over there. Very practical.

And the swatch:

20120311-171553.jpg
A beautiful golden sheen and not to mention VERY VERY pigmented. You dont need a lot of this stuff to look glowing.

Price for Mary Lou Manizer is RM72

I actually I wanted the bronzer but I saw this set and Im like “I HAVE TO HAVE THIS!” So this explains why Im talking about this now. This has a pretty cute bag as well.

Contains Hot Mama, Stainiac & Bahama Mama

20120311-172337.jpg
Bahama Mama & Hot Mama

20120311-172440.jpg
Top: Hot Mama
Bottom: Bahama Mama

Hot Mama: A peachy pink blush with slight shimmer similar to Nars Orgasm

Bahama Mama: A matte bronzer similar to Benefit’s Hoola but darker (I love!)

And as for Staniac, I will not be showing you a swatch because I havent opened it yet. Not using it anytime soon cause cheek and lip stains tend to “expire” faster so Im saving it for next time.

The price for this whole set is RM144

Overall, The Balm’s products that I got are excellent! I love their pin up theme, love how nice the packaging is, they’re portable, nice size and arent bulky, they’ve got huge mirrors that comes with each blush, the price is fairly cheap for something SO amazing. Nothing bad I can say about TheBalm. I love their products! And you should check them out when you get the chance! So talk to you pretties later!

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 2

Standard

Hello!

This is the continuation for my make up collection post. I had to split it into two or else it would be a very loooooooong post. Now, let us move on.

Next to my vainity table (as you can see in my first picture in part 1), I have two shelves thats drilled to the wall. The one right next to the vainity is where I put all of my lip products and also my eye shadow palettes.


I store my lipsticks in these acrylic lipstick holders that I got for an affordable price. They had different sizes and different number of lipstick slots. In the pictures below, I will be showing you how they vary from each other.

This holds 24 lipsticks and it comes with a clear container that you can stack on eachother. I put all my lipbalms, lipglosses that are too short to be seen in my lipgloss holder, Anna Sui’s ring rouge in the container.

This is actually a candle holder. So when I was done with the candle, I cleaned the glass and used it to store all of my MAC’s lipglasses and plushglasses. They fit perfectly and it’s really nice that you can see through it to see the colors.

I dont know how to describe this buti it’s sorta like a moon shape. This holds 15 lipsticks.

As you can see, behind there’s a few slots where you can put extra lipsticks or skinny lipsticks that dont fit in the slot. Ive got my Anna Sui’s lip palette, my Holika Holika rose mirror, chapsticks and sample sized lipsticks.

Now this little thing holds 12 lipsticks. Ive got two of these just cause I wasnt sure if i needed anymore at that time, but in the end, i did need another one.

This is where I store my lipglosses. This container is actually a tv remote control holder/pen holder. I also stick the pink w brown polka ribbon around the container just so it does not look dull.

These are the palettes I have. I just place them upright next to the wall and the lipgloss container.

My vainity table has a slide mirror, and behind there are shelves where I can store my body mists, moisturizers and lotions and things like that so I really think thats cool.


In the cabinet, I just put all my make up bags and brush rolls inside. And at the top shelf, I have one of those acrylic containers but in a bigger size so that I can put all my tissue roll, nail polish remover, cuticle removers, extra brush cleanser and everything.

White container has my sample size of everything from different companies. The Coca Cola glass was a freebie from Mcds and I put my hair brushes inside. Now that thing on the right is a brochure holder that I got from a stationery store. It holds my face masks, and hair stuff perfectly.

So, that is it ladies! I hope this was helpful. I’m sorry I cant describe this better just cause, I feel, that most of these things shown are all straight forward. But if you have questions, feel free to comment down below. Thank you for reading! Talk to you all again soon!
