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!

20120311-165733.jpg
L to R: Cabana Boy, Frat Boy, Down Boy

20120311-170032.jpg
L to R: Cabana Boy, Frat Boy, Down Boy

And the swatches:

20120311-170347.jpg
L to R: Cabana Boy, Frat Boy, Down Boy

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

20120311-170835.jpg

20120311-171112.jpg
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.

20120311-171805.jpg

20120311-172055.jpg
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!

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 🙂

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!!

MAC PAINTPOTS

Standard

Hello all!

Today i’ll be talking about the infamous MAC paintpots. I just received these products about two days ago and i have tried them out. Ive heard so much about MAC’s paintpots. Gurus in youtube have been raving about these. They say these paintpots can be a good base for eyeshadow and also, they can just be worn by itself to give a pop of color to your eyes.

What MAC claims:

“A HIGHLY PIGMENTED EYE COLOUR THAT GOES ON CREAMY BUT DRIES TO AN INTENSE, VIBRANT FINISH. LONG-WEARING, COLOURFAST. CREATES SEAMLESS COVERAGE WITHOUT WEIGHT OR CAKING. BLENDS SMOOTHLY OVER THE LIDS. CREAM BASED, CAN BE MIXED WITH MAC SHADOWS AND LINERS.”

Currently, I only own three paintpots – PAINTERLY, RUBENESQUE & INDIANWOOD

PAINTERLY PAINTPOT

MAC describes Painterly as a “nude beige”. It is a “cream” finish. Now I like to use this as a base. This evens out any discoloration or veining on my lids.

 

A swatch of PAINTERLY PAINTPOT

RUBENESQUE PAINTPOT

Mac describes Rubenesque as “golden peach with gold pearl” and it’s a “frost” finish. I also use this as a base because it does not come out opaque.

A swatch of RUBENESQUE PAINTPOT

INDIANWOOD PAINTPOT

Mac describes INDIANWOOD as a”metallic antique bronze”. And it is a “frost” finish too. This color can be used as a base or by itself. It shows up nicely on my lids and can be a perfect color for a brown/bronzey smokey look.

A swatch of INDIANWOOD PAINTPOT

Overall, I like them. A girl should have one of these in their collection. It lasts long on the lids and as a base, it does make any eyeshadow look more vibrant. I recommend this product. I’m already planning to get some more for myself.

I hope this was helpful. I’ll talk to you all very soon. Thank you!
