Product Review: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion

Hi all, have you heard of  the NEW Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion? Some of you might have heard it from friends, seen it on advertisements, social media sites etc... Infact, this new Eye Serum was launched over the new year.
I'm privileged to be given a set of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair skincare for my review. In this post, I am reviewing the Eye Serum and will also be reviewing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex that was launched about 4 years ago (the product was available for many many years already with 30 yrs of innovation), in a separate blogpost.
These are what I received from Estee Lauder:
- *NEW* Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion (15ml)
- Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex (30ml)

Shot 28 Aug, 8 & 9 Sep: OOTDs ~ LOTDs

Something off topic for a while.. I've always said my cat drools on keyboard and some of you might wonder how he actually can DROOL on my keyboard.. So here is..
My lovely Mimi the cat (its a boy!) who is in his cutest position.... : On my lap. (XD~)

In middle of night when he can't sleep or gets bored from doing nothing but sleep, he will stand up and put his paws on my chair, looking up at me to ask for my permission to cuddle him.
And so here is his usual position: Head on my right arm (sometimes even lying his whole head on it till my arms got numb), his body on my lap, under the keyboard slider (is that what you call it, slider?)...
Sometimes he will lay his head on the slider when his neck gets tired, resulting drools on the keyboard...

When I whip out my camera, he claws at the strap... He's a very good clawer i must say, hence the scars on my hands and leg...
He stays on my lap for about 15-30 mins before finally realising that he's not in a good sleeping posture, and Off he goes to lay somewhere more comfortable... =^.^=
One more extra picture of his head on the slider: (pic taken long ago)

 

Right, on to the usual stuffs.. //^____^//

Nowadays, I dress up in styles that suits my hair. I chose clothes towards rock, punk, manly styles. I'd neglected my sweet, cutesy dresses for some time ever since my hair got cut to this length. (,=∧=,)

On 28 Aug, my OOTD: Stylish Boy look
Thick black frames (no degree): Wisma Atria Basement
Leather strap vintage key choker: Malaysia (bought for many years back. Its love at first sight and many people compliments this choker!)
Tie-dye Blue long tee: Overseas

Blue-Red-Black-White Checkered long sleeve Blouse: Chinatown Level 2
Long leather wrist strap: China
Realise most of the material I matched are made of leather/pleather? =D They give a rugged feel~

LOTD:
I wanted to acheive a simple dark brown-ashy feel to match the theme.. but end up I look like as if I got punched at the corner of my eyes! LOLx..
Brow - Majolica Majorca Eyebrow Pencil
Eyes- MAC paintpot in Soft Ochre
MUA e/s in De ja vous
MAC e/s in Charcoal Brown Matte
others... I couldn't remember ^__^"

On 8 Sept, I went to one of my friend's wedding dinner
Again, with my hairstyle I am not able to pair it with a pretty white dress in cute shoes and all that.. Urghhh.. (kinda start to get frustrated with super short hair now..>,<)
So I thought of wearing a blouse but pair with a skirt. Formal at the top but yet playful at the bottom. So here is...

I cried for few days now, as my body is too heaty and that always make my eyes feel very hot and it gets all sensitive and tear lots non-stop.. It kept ruin my eye makeup!!! (#$^%@)#%_(_@$*%@#&$

THIS IS DA BREAKTHROUGH!!!
Have you ever tried to do a look that you had decided in your mind which probably gonna look great but turned out "Sharks... why isn't it like what I wanted..?"
Well yah, it happens to me zillion of times.
I have this borderline that my eyeshadows will always stop at, and it doesn't ever go beyond it. I feel that there is this big lobang (empty space) between the brow and my e/s border line (as drawn on left pic)
I been telling myself many times to blend the colours higher! HIGHER! But it just don't go up!
But this time! I think I broke that line! See how "ROUND" my e/s appears on my lid on the right pic, compare to the left which is "FLAT". HA,HA! YES I did it!

 

On 9 Sept, my colleagues and I had a dinner gathering at Robertson Quay. There's this new shop opened by my colleague's husband. They sell North Indian food! YUM! One of my favourite! I just can't stop thinking of NAANsssssss (credits http://www.sailusfood.com).

Their shop is call BAR BAR BLACK SHEEP, selling North Indian Cuisines. Its very very nice OMG, I think I was the only person who ate ALOT. XD~
If you girls often go to the quay, you can try this out! Beside this store, is another bar selling beer and such (I'm not an alcohol person, i know NUTS about them...~_~) The 2 stores share the same building. So you can eat naans and drink beer. kekekex~

Well then, since I thought of Quay, I thought of sitting near the river (indeed we were! so cooling and cozy~) relaxing, chit chat-ing while having my favourite Naans... etc..
So I plan to dress in my utmost relaxed mode... style. ---- Beach wear!

- YSL Rouge Volupte 30 Lipstick
I love how the Coral lips matches well with the eye makeup! ^.^ But the lipstick ends up together with my Naans, in my stomach =p

IGNOTE MY MESSY BROWS!! (AGAIN!)
The e/s appears rather translucent or washed-off.. O2 Skin seem to be not very pigmented and blendable. VOV works alittle better than O2 Skin.

O2 Skin in MC2947 (Yellow) & MC2911 (Green)

And Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all muslims out there! May you get as many 'green' pows as possible!

miwitch's Skincare & Base Makeup Regimen - Hada Labo Focus Group by FR3B

I was thinking of writing reviews of the most recent products that I've bought and tried, but I think writing a regimen better explains how the products work on me as I find that only when they are used together, it makes my skin better. It is not only about 1 product, it is the whole set of skincare products I use that can give me better skin.

Some people will go lazy, skipping toners, serums/essence, or eyecreams, thinking that moisturizers can do all the work, or cleansing/scrubbing is enough.
And I must admit that I am kind of lazy sometimes too but I can be very hardworking as well, going all the way to massaging almost everything onto my face. (sound kinda silly right? XD~)

I will speak of my 'most hardworking' way of skincare & makeup regimen... I don't want to speak of my lazy part otherwise, some people might just follow! Xp~

Before I start, I just had to say that this entry is not really about promoting or recommending Hada Labo products. Its just coincidence that when I bought my hada labo products for only 3 weeks, an invitation to a Focus Group by FR3B was sent to me. Hence, I started to perk up and do the 'most hardworking' skincare routine so that I could get the best results from the products I use, and be able to explain more of my thoughts about their products.

Enough of explaining, let's STARTO!

~*♡♥♡♥♡*~
Morning Skincare to Base Makeup Routine

1. Aqualabel White Clear Foam: For every morning face wash. It has whitening effect after washing as it contains white clay powder (But I kind of feel like its not whitening, its more like making my face look paler). I like how clean it washes my natural sebum off from my face as I always wake up with quite an oily face. On the other side, it is rather drying too. I am currently thinking to use this only at night and replace it with a moisturising or gentle face wash for morning.

(Taken from http://www.aqualabel.com.tw/products/b_index.htm)
2. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion: Drop a few drops on my palm, spread around both hands and then start pressing it against my face (including my eyes), following the method I've seen from the HK Hada Labo CF. I find that it is better absorbed when you press your palm on your face for longer timing, compare to quick patting. Most users tend to only pat it in quick motions as they're in a rush and want it to be quickly absorbed, hence experience a very sticky end result. I find the stickiness feel is not a problem or either that I might had gotten used to its stickiness ^_^"

(Taken from http://www.hadalabo.com.sg/index_EN.htm)

3. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Essence: 1 pea size of essence and using the same pressing method as mentioned above, on my eyes. As my eyes are very dry and currently more wrinkles are forming due to lack of sleep and over-using my eyes watching manga, monitors.. (=_="), hence I use the essence to moisturise my eyes first before I put my eye serum on. (If you wish to follow, please do it at your own risk! I am not responsible if you grow milia seeds around your eyes!)
+plus+
Lancome Blanc Expert Anti-Dark Circles Eye Serum: 1 pea size of serum and spread around my under eyes and a little on my eyelids. I will massage my eyes in circular motions clock wise 10 times, anti-clockwise 10 times, then clockwise 10 times again. This helps my tired eyes to revive and kind of make the dark circles looks a little lighter. The serum contains mini mica so it also brighten up my under eyes. It is watery and smooth,easily spread around, so massaging it around the eyes is quite easy.

/or/

Decleor Relaxing Eye Cream: This eyecream is equivalent to the above 2 products, more like a 2 in 1 eyecream. It moisturises and it can reduce puffiness and dark circles. However I feel that using this eyecream alone is not as good as using the above 2. It moisturise but lesser, it reduces dark circles but not as visibly. Hence, I only use this eyecream when I am really in a rush. It is between lotion and cream type, easy to massage on eye for first few rounds, after that it becomes a little sticky, preventing me to glide around my skin, hence I can't finish up my usual 3 steps eye massage.

4. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essence: Its watery with a smooth feel after skin absorbs. Moisturising level is not up to my expectation but still, I consider it as a hassle-free product! A pump-spread-pat and go kind of product. Good for people who don't want to spend too much time putting on skincare!
I still do some 'anti-gravity' massaging on my face with the essence but before I could finish my massaging, my face already absorb all the essence. 2 ~ 2½ pumps is just nice for my face and neck.
Aqualabel Enhancer MO: Few drops on a cotton pad and lightly pat it onto face & neck in upwards motion (excluding eyes). This enhancer contains collagen (I love collagen! =p~) so I feel its good to end with this enhancer since I had been doing all the 'blood circulation', 'anti-gravity' massages, so this is an additional plus point for my regimen! Very lightweight, watery, moisturising kind of lotion. (Heard that sensitive skin have no problem using this range)

▶▷►

5. SANA Pore Putty Makeup Base Clear: Right after my last step of skincare routine, my face usually still feels tiny bit sticky. And when I apply on the pore putty, I feel an instead smoothness on my face. It is not an oily-smooth, nor is it a powdery-smooth. It is just Smooth-smooth! ^.^"" It fills up my large pores on my cheeks and nose just like the picture shows... like cementing your face. hahhax...
L'egere -Korea- Water Drop Shiny Pearl BBCream: Original colour of the content was quite dark shade of brown, after using my middle and ring fingers to spread it out on my face, the colour turns to 1 shade lighter than my skintone. It also brightens up my dull skin and visibly conceals my dark circles! Although it concealed my flaws, but I still find my undereye looks greyish, hence I will do my eye concealing work on top of the BBCream.
The BB has sunblock with moisturising effect and most importantly its sweat proof! Although it doesn't state the SPF, but I feel that it does have some sunblock effect.
Hereby putting up a pic taken at a most recent event that I've ran, I was running around from early morning 6am till 12pm, outdoors (The weather was not very hot, but still I'm taking in free UV Rays like nobody business!). I had my usual morning skincare & base makeup routine on that day, when I finally could go to toilet to check out my face @ 11+am (I've already started to imagine half melted makeup and many caked laugh lines and getting prepared to stun myself in the mirror), all I was looking at was a perfect makeup-ed face with only some sweats around my forehead... PERFECT I say! I was so amazed and this prove that the BBCream is really sweat proof! It's moisturising factor I would give...70%, conceal factor 80%, anti-oxidant & fights dullness 85%, other factors... unsure.. hahax~
Picture is taken right after I went to the toilet. Top pic is taken outdoor and bottom is indoor. As can see, you'll find the outdoor pics looks natural, but there is some white cast on my face with a greyish tint in the indoor pics.

6. *Extra Point* In the morning-afternoon @ my workplace, I will drink a cup of hot Green Tea (no milk, no sugar!). this helps to keep me awake plus my body will take in its anti-oxidants , preventing my face and skin from turning dull (as due to lack of sleep, over-work etc..)
I would say Green Tea is a better choice compare to coffee if you ask me how to keep yourself awake from your boring work. XD~ And before I take my sip of tea, I will first have a deep breath of Green Tea scent from my cup. =p~


~*♡♥♡♥♡*~

 

Night Skincare Routine

A. Aqualabel Deep Clear Oil Cleansing: 3 full pumps on dry hands and spread all around face & neck, draw circular motions to remove traces of makeups. Afterwhich, take a little water, spread on palms and emulsify the oil cleanser on face. Continue circular motions on face, then wash off.
While my face and hands are still wet, I take 1 more pump and apply the emulsion onto face and this time I draw circles on eyes, nose, cheeks & jaw areas where I have most frequent clogged pores.
Aqualabel White Clear Foam: Strips off the remaining traces of makeup and the oil cleanser. Still, I feel the little dryness after using. =\
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: I should name this as my Power (Fav) Product! As quoted, its really super fine powder. I dripped a few drops of water mix with the powder on palm, then spread the paste onto whole face (include the part nearest to undereye, as I have clogged pores there too) & neck. Lightly rub it concentrating yet again the parts that usually clogs up the most, and also areas like behind sideburns (infront of ear), behind ear, back of neck (if you willing to use that much powder). Until all the micro-powder beads fully dissolves, then wash off with water. Immediately, my skin feels so smooth and looks brighter! To further prove that the product is good, I've tested it throughout for 3 consecutive days. Everyday I put on makeup to work, my face looks so much brighter and the dullness doesn't comes back only until when I about to reach home at late night. On the 4th and 5th day, I stopped using it, and I see my face looking dull and not as smooth like the first 3 days. My face immediately turn dark when I apply my makeup. This microfoliant is my life!

D. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair: An anti-aging skincare which is to be used at night. I often alternate around this and Palmer's Fade Cream for night routines, or I will apply masks if I'm lazy.
Few drops of the serum and spread all over face (exclude eyes) and neck. Its gel-liquid type, absorbs real fast, even before I have time to spread it out. I will then cup my whole face with 2 hands for some time before I do my anti-gravity massage again.
After waking up, I feel my skin is hydrated, supple and feels 'repaired'. (Influenced by its name =p) I feel that its like an all-rounder, fights wrinkles, anti-oxidant, hydrates, repair damage skin...
PALMER’S Skin Success Ultra Fade Cream: This is a kind of skin bleaching product. I understand many of you might not be able to use this, but me having a very stubborn face or rather, thick skin face, I am blessed to be able to try any products and not have any reactions (so far so good *touches wood*)
This is by far the best skin whitener I've used and it works really very well on my scars, which often caused by over exerting pressure on my skin while I was picking my acne.. (itchy hands I know!) About 5-7 days, I can see immediate lightening effect on the scar that I applied on. Of course, the scar I said is a not a wound, so you can't apply on an open wound or acne that's not healed, you probably will get an infection if you put the cream on it!
And some claim that its very oily after using it, I find its still ok, as this is not the last step, I find moisturisers are usually the ones that makes the face oily. No massage is done when I use this cream.

E. Aqualabel Enhancer MO
Clinique Moisture Surge: A smooth gel like cream that protects my face from pollution, dirt and dehydration. After I applied a thin layer, I can feel like I'm wearing a shield, not afraid that my face will loose moisture. By massaging, the cream gets absorbed better into the skin. The next day I woke up although with a rather oily face, I still feel its hydrated, and when I wash off with water, my face feels supple and silky smooth.

~*♡♥♡♥♡*~

Night Treatment Mask Routine

i. Clinique Moisture Surge: Apply thick layer of cream onto face and massage it to allow it better absorbed by the skin. After massaging, if needed I will apply another thin layer on top before I sleep. The last layer will become a shield that traps the first layer of essence into my skin, kind of like how an enhancer work...
Kitoko Katani Masks: Another of my Power Product!.. Just can't get enough of these masks.. ^.^~ Comes in different types like whitening, hydrating, radiance, etc... I most love the Red Wine Mask as its hydrating effect is good! 1 pack of mask has enough serum that I could even spread on to my arms, legs, foot, chest... ^_^"" If I don't do that, the mask will be dripping serum all over my body! I put all masks inside my fridge, so my face gets instant coolness when I put on my mask.
One way that it helps is minimising my large pores, hydrates my face, firming and also fights wrinkles. It feels sticky after mask being removed. I massage the remaining serum into skin and if needed, I will remove excess with pressing a tissue over my face or strip off some serum by wetting my palms and wipes them off my face.

Hada Labo Focus Group by FR3B

On 16 July, I went to Vivocity to attend Hada Labo Focus Group held by FR3B company. I met up with the 2 Joyces (Joyce Lim & Joyce Sept) hehex~ =p
Man! I was like so lost when I came out of the MRT.. =_= I'm a direction idiot... And worst still, its first time that Joyce Sept went to Vivo! Together, we are lost birds...
Anyhoo, Joyce Lim saved us from having searching the whole Vivo to find that White Dog Cafe, its just infront of Faceshop! Phew~

So, at the cafe I saw noppi (U're so much cuter than the ones in your pics! i think you can throw your camera away already =X) and hazelnutt. (happily waving to her at the other end of table~ ^.^y~)
I also met 2 other bloggers but I can't recall their names already (its been a week... my memory is super short, if you're here pls shoutout to me! ^_^)

During the session, we were asked alot of questions like, what are our usual skincare routine... what are our favourite products among all the products we use in our usual routine... explain why we chose those products as our favourite (I mentioned it too in my skincare regimen above)

After understanding how we feel about using their products, they went on to find out where we seen their commercial and ads.. what we remembered and felt towards watching their commercial and advertisements... what is their tagline... etc.. Its a memory testing game for me! (>,<")

All in all, this focus group is a very detailed discussion (more like an Q & A session). I was initially thinking that maybe there would be alot of discussions between bloggers so the PR staff will grab infos from our conversations. But later found out that its rather a one-way traffic. I was quite enthusiastic in replying their questions mainly because I always liked to give opinions and suggestions (too responsive eh? ^_^" kinda too influenced by my job.. hahax..)
But I'm always stucked in my half sentence as my English is no good OTL||||

After the session and grabbing few bites off from the finger-food plates (which happen to be my dinner!), we finally gotten some freebies from them. A box of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Mask and a sample size of Sunplay Powdery White Sunblock Lotion (SPF 47 PA+++).
Yeah! Another Hada Labo product to try!~ Infact I had used the sunblock before many years back. I quite like the smooth & whitening effect it gave after applying, but I couldn't remember much about how good it is in terms of blocking off the UV rays, probably one day I shall try it again when I finish up my current sunscreens.

 

Thank you for reading this longlong post written in such a bad English.. ^_^" I only know how to use a few common words and I think I've used it too often. Please bare with me for my future posts, as you'll probably be seeing those words again & again & again & again~.... =p

Lastly, I just have to say that I've spent writing this entry for 12 hours! (break up to 2 days) Can you believe it!?! =_= Mainly in between I was chatting with friend, hugging my cat, dozing off and what not...

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

I ran into Aries whose a BA for Loreal, she ask me to try this gloss while she's still at work @ her counter! Isn't it funny! =D She told me this lipgloss is by far the best one she had used as it can really conceal your pigmented lips even without wearing lipsticks! Oooo.. I had a lip concealer from this range and loving it so far, hence not a bad idea for me to try out their gloss too. The scent of the gloss is exactly same as the lip concealer.
Neutrogena Rainbath: $9.90
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPORT Sunblock Cooling Mist: $24.50 (It is a sunblock & a cooling mist in 1!! Both are my favourites! )

Sasa Hauls: (20% off I nuovi products! Grab now before its gone!)
I nuovi Trucolor Eyeshadow (in Rich Gold): $20.80 (usual $26)
I nuovi Facescape (in Malibu Barbie): $36 (usual $45)
I nuovi LipTreat: $24 (usual $30)
ARE Eyeshadow Brush: $3.60
Shiseido Eyelash Curler (with refill): $16.20 (bought for na)

Guardian Haul:
Lip smacker Rollys (in Vanilla Coke): $7.90 (I tried on my hand, kinda felt oily...U_U" )

And now some Swatches!
I love the brushtip of the lipgloss! So smooth~

Credits to Joyce, putting up animated gifs is an easy way to show how a product works (besides video) ^___^v~

I nuovi Lipscrub and treatment doesn't have any colour when I apply the content on my hand, hence no pic! The scrub micro-beads is so very fine, so different from the beads we often use in face scrub! Nice!
Facescape also has a highlighter & blush colour, I'm so inlove with the highlight colour, thinking if I should get it or not.. But I like the bronze colour from this shade too!

And some choo choo cats for everyone (to view only...)! =^◑ω◑^=

And ending with a total damage of $260.20 in half a day!!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.

Tagged: miwitch's 6 products I can't live without (makeup/makeup tool)

Thanks Verlyn for tagging me! =D

If there is no limit to the range of products I should pick on, I will surely name it 6 skincare, 6 makeup, 6 haircare, 6 fashion clothes & on & on...
So today, I shall just name it as the 6 makeup/makeup tools I surely won't forget to use or bring along when I'm outside!

Here goes:
1. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly for my lips: Good to use as lip mask and lip moisturiser
2. Estēe Lauder Cyber White EX Extra Intensive UV Protector SPF 50/PA+++ :My new ! after my previous ed Lancome sunblock! ^.^
3. MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 NW25: Mostly for concealing dark circles
4. Covermark Moisture Veil LX Base Foundation: Love to use this with damp sponge it gives me flawless skin!
5. Shiseido Eyelash Curler : It fits my eyes perfectly and it curls my lashes very well, can even go up to 90degrees if I press it hard(but no, I try not to do that). There is always refills to buy, so I do not have to worry when the rubber spoils!
6. Callas Lipstick in CLB BR03 Sheer Coco : Very natural shade, it makes me look like as if I didn't have lipstick on my lips cos the shade's so natural ^_^

Mini haul, Watsons Members' Preview & Rimmel Colour Show Off Swatches

Watsons Members' Preview from 4June - 6June! (x2 points)

I went Compass Point Watsons and there wasn't any queue! I gotten these brushes that are highly raved by other bloggers!
ecotools eye shadow brush $6.90
Bourjois mineral matte mini kabuki brush $9.60 (after discount): No cheaper than na's john little buy but I lazy to travel to JL =_="
Indeed, they are very dense and very soft~~~ Ooolala~

IvyCosmetics Haul
Estee Lauder Cyber White EX Sunblock: Was introduced by the boss there, saying its very good, must try! So I Buy! ^_^"
Lancome UV Expert GN-Shield Sunblock: Replenishing my sunblock~
Total I was given some discounts, I spent $19 on this 2.. (I still feel quite ex considering sample's so mini!)
Anyone had tried Lancome UV Expert GN-Shield BB-Cream? Anyone happen to have its sample? I want to try it out but I can't seem to find the sample. I want to know if its good. >_<

Seeing diana's blog about the new range of Rimmel's lipsticks, I just had to go and swatch some to check out the colours!
Lucky thing compass point Watsons is big and the MU section is not packed by shoppers/ MU junkies and so the Rimmel colour show off testers are totally NEW & CLEAN! (I felt like bringing it home.. =X)
I've forgotten what are the names of these shades i've picked. The colours i picked are mostly in pinks.
I shall do a rough gauge of the shades I've chosen, pls excuse if its incorrect.
L to R: Shake-up Pink, Tell No One, Pink Gossip, Kiss Me, Shocking Pink
Its can cover pigmented/dark lips if you put on 2-3 layers.

I was all alone swatching happily away when the Bourjois SA just had to cut in to promote her lipsticks hence she swatched a few range of BJ lipsticks on my right hand (Rimmel's on my left). I compared both and Rimmel's still looked alot richer and more matt than Bourjois. Yeah!

However, I didn't buy any because I find my NYX's has the similar colour as these pink shades. =\ If only Rimmel Colour Show Off has Nude range... =/

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

Estee Lauder & BB, Peach Lipstick and other Swatches + 1 haul

Swatches of Foundation Bases:
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Liquid Foundation in Intensity 2.0 (See available shades here)
and
HAOJS CC Perfect Repair Cream (BB) Foundation

Due to its taken in dim lighting, the colours might not be accurate. Hence I did the swatch twice on my arm and back of hand.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light: Yellowish tone. Creamy feel at beginning, starts to turn matt quickly when blended out. Light to medium coverage depending on how much you use.
HAOJS Repair BB: Beige tone. Looks thick but infact very watery when blended out. Somehow brightens up your skin alittle. Very minimum coverage to almost none. Appears to feel like tinted moisturizer. Gives a glossy finish to your skin.

When tissue pressed against foundation:
Estee Lauder...not transfer-proof I must say.
Wherelse for HAOJS, I kind of used more pressure than that of Estee Lauder's in order to get that brown colour stains on the tissue. Infact, more water(or oil?) was captured instead of the foundation colour.

Swatches of Nude to Peachy Lipsticks:
Shiseido Perfect Roughe BE109: My nudest of all my nude lipsticks (can compare with NYX Circe) but its more moisturizing than NYX's
Callas Sheer Coco
BourJois Rough Clubbing Pretty Nude: Has glitters!
Revlon Color Burst Peach

Randon Swatches of Liners & Blush:
Stage Gerbera Blush
: Suppose to look peachy... hmm...
Majolica Majorca LE Perfect Automatic Liners: Gotta love the white liner! It kind of reminds me of glow in the dark objects...

And 1 MAC Haul I had totally forgotten about it! And this further adds up to my concealer collection...

Something happened to my dog! Baby went to Martial Arts Federation to learn....

◈◈◈Coming up: ELF Eyelid Primer review, Fashion shot with fashion haul, MM event pics
