MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

Standard

Hi girls!

Gonna be doing a long post and it’s the long awaited Mac Archie’s Girls Collection. Here i will not be doing swatches because if I do, it will be a very very verrrryyy long post so I’ll be doing a separate one later on. But for those of you who are interested in what I got from this collection, then keep on reading šŸ™‚

MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

As you know, the collection itself is huge. They have this collection separated consisting of Betty’s and Veronica’s.

Betty’s collections are more on the neutral “girl next door” colors while Veronica’s are more of the sultry colors. I did not get all, though God knows how much I wanted to but these things are not cheap! Sigh. So I got a few things which I thought I needed and I could not live with. So let’s get started!!

They have two eye shadow palettes, I obviously got my hands on both! They are:

1. Betty’s – Caramel Sundae

2. Veronica’s – Spoiled Rich

Below is what the packaging looks like for both palettes. If you’re familiar with the Wonder Woman or the Hello Kitty eyeshadow palettes that MAC released a while back, this is similar except of the theme but still the same metal compact casings which I adore!

The had so many shades of lipsticks for both Veronica and Betty, but I only got three (2 from Veronica’s and 1 from Betty’s). I got none of the lip glosses cause I rarely use lip glosses nowadays.

Revlon’s Really Red!

Standard

Hi ladies!

Now I have got time to do another post. Went out lastnight and was rocking a red lippie! Got so many compliments on my lipstick and I thought I would share with you the color I was using.

Presenting Revlon’s Matte lipstick in 006 Really Red.

Its obviously matte as you can tell by the name but it’s not drying as other matte lipsticks would. And I love how deep and rich the red is and it just makes you feel sexy and confident. This red can be worn at a night out and if you’re feeling confident, you can also wear this for work. Personally, I wouldnt mind wearing this to work.

This is from their permanent Matte line and if you havent got this shade, do get this. If you want a perfect application, I suggest you wear a lipbrush to apply this but I did not use one cause applying it normally is fine by me too.

Here are the pictures!

REVLON JUST BITTEN KISSABLE BALM STAINS

Standard

Hi all!

I know I knowwww. I have been gone for so long! My night classes are driving me nuts! Sorry for not having time to update. My exams are finally over now so I’ll try my very best to update my blog daily.

So without further a do, let’s get on to it!

Today ladies, I had a hard time trying to think of the best thing to talk about, I have got some great MAC and SIGMA stuff but are limited editions. So I thought it beats the purpose of talking about it and recommend them to you when you can’t find them anywhere anymore. So I am sticking to products you can still get online or in your local shops.

Today’s lucky thingymajig would be the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains!

I have 4 of them with me. I believe they have 12 colors altogether but they don’t sell all in Brunei, God knows why.

So here they are..

From L to R: 015 Cherish, 045 Romantic, 025 Sweetheart, 050 Precious

From L to R: 050 Precious, 025 Sweetheart, 045 Romantic, 015 Cherish

Revlon has come up with.. Not just a stain but a BALM stain where the color will stay on your lips at the same time it will not be drying as those traditional lip stains. These are lightweight the colors stay for hours.

The packaging is adorable, they look like chubby crayons and it is retractable so no sharpener required gals!

Image

From top to bottom: 015 Cherish, 050 Precious, 025 Sweetheart,045 Romantic

015 Cherish: A pale pinkish mauve color.

050 Precious: A light beige that appears to be a not very flattering nude for my skin tone.

025 Sweetheart: Love this color a lot. It’s a bright fuschia pink.

045 Romantic: Another fav! A very rich bright red.

I would totally recommend these. Now you don’t need to wear a lip balm first hand before wearing your lipstick. Praise Revlon for coming up with this genius products! The colors are mostly pigmented, some may fall on the sheer side like Precious. But then again, they are FANTABULOUS!

So if you haven’t tried this out, please do. And if you have, tell me what are your thoughts!

Have a good day ladies!

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 šŸ™‚

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!

Xx,

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 šŸ™‚

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

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

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!

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 1

Standard

Hello dear readers!

Finallyyy!! I’ll be doing my make up collection post plus I’ll be giving you some make up storage tips. So lets just get on with it.

Just a disclaimer, I am not trying to brag about how much make up I have, I don’t think I have that many compared to the youtube gurus and bloggers I’ve seen, I’m simply doing this post just cause I love sharing new ideas on how I store my make up. And I know some readers that have reached out to me asked for a post like this, so to you girlies, who’ve asked, this is especially for you šŸ™‚

The overview of my make up station

I store my brushes in clear glass vases. The beads inside the vases at the back are flower beads.

In this plastic container (where I used to store my earrings) I could fit my foundations, BB creams, face primers, brush cleansers and towel in. I just wrapped a pink ribbon with brown polka dots around the clear container to make it more interesting. (My cousin got me a pair of PJs when she got back from UK and it came with the ribbon so I kept it and reused it)

Top view

I will start with my pink counter. Here is where I mainly keep my make up. I bought this pink rack and the white clear plastic drawers separately. I was lucky that the drawers fit perfectly in the rack. Of course I need a lot of anti slip mats to be placed under the drawers so that it does not move when I pull the drawers out.

First rack on the right, it has two small drawers at the top and one long drawer at the bottom.

First drawer on the left is where I store all my face stuff; face powders, liquid highlighters, setting powder, powder foundation, bronzer and two kabuki brushes

In the second drawer on the right is where I place all my concealers and color correctors

In the drawer below, I have 4 little containers as you can see in the picture above. Now I got these little containers from Economy Mart; 3 for $1? I have my lipliners, eyelash curlers, mascaras and…

On the other two, I place my sharpeners, eye primers, paintpots, gel liners and liquid liners.

In the second rack I have..

In the top drawer, I have all my blushes. I also have two long containers where I store a my MAC, Nyx, Anna Sui and Benefit’s Box O’ Powders. Now that little container on the right I also got that from the Economy Mart, same price as Ive mentioned above. There I store all my random blushes. And in the little space I have Ive stored some of my high end blushes. Ive placed an anti slip mat underneath just so my things wont move around.

Here I have all my small palettes and in the small container on the right, I have all my fake lashes with lash adhesive.

The last rack on my right..

Now this, I wont show you each and every drawer just cause its not that interesting. But i’ll tell you what I have in each and every one of them.

1st drawer: All my cotton pads & hair bands to put my hair back doing my make up.

2nd drawer: Long container where I store all my eyeshadow singles and duos.

3rd drawer: All my plastic jars and sprays incase I need them for whatever reason.

4th drawer: All my Vaporubs and other medical creams.

Next rack on my left,

This rack is where I place all my earring. I have a post on how I store my earrings recently so check that out!

In the second rack I have all my perfumes..

And the last rack below, I store all my nail stuff.

An overview of all the nailpolishes that I have.

So that is all for my part 1 and stay tuned if you wanna see part 2!!
