[Beauty Review] Elianto Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick ❤

Hola people! Sorry that I could not spend much time on blogging. Lack of inspiration lately and today I would like to spare some time to share with my readers the new product which is just launched not long ago in the market - Elianto Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick! 


Elianto's Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick range offers the simplest of all options. The German-made, wax-based formula is not only long-lasting, its texture allows for effortless super smooth blending. You can finally just apply, glide and go out with the look that you wish to with this Eyeshadow Stick. 


Containing Jojoba Oil, Elianto's Long Wear Eyeshadow stick is both dermatologically and ophthalmologically approved. The Mineral Oil, Paraben and preservative free item comes in shade of white, brown, blue, navy purple and black.  


What's even better this product, that comes with an in-built sharpener, can be used either as a delicate eyeshadow or a determined eye liner. 


Normally I don't like to play colours on my lids but this is truly an interesting product to share with you guys. I blended the navy, blue and purple separately and you can look at the outcome of the colour on my eyelids. 

Blue 

I noticed that it glides on smoothly on my lids and you can blend the eyeshadow with your fingers or make up brush for smoky look effect. 

Navy
The product itself can be worn alone except that you have to build it up according to your desired shades. It's easy to be removed with makeup remover.  

Purple

I put on three colours on my lids which are brown, white and black. Black is used as eyeliner to line my eyes. I love how I can get a smooth thin line for my liner with the black eyeshadow. The brown colour on the other wise is used as eyeshadow and I draw some white on the inner corner of my eyes to make my eyes look bigger. 



However, I noticed that if my eyes get too oily, it's hard to get the eyeshadow stick to stick on my lids. It will somehow smudge a little. I like how those colours are well blended on my eyelids. Overall, I am satisfied with the products and now it's so convenient to apply eyeshadow with Elianto Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick. On the lighter note, I wish that they could have more shades of colours to play with to suit my outfit. :P 

This Elianto Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick is now available for RM31.90 at all Elianto stores nationwide. More info, please check out their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/eliantoMalaysia.

[Giveaway + Beauty Event] Set Your Smile To Stun with Burt's Bees Lip Crayon ❤

Burt's Bees launched the newest addition to their lip colour range - Lip Crayon which is 100% natural with a moisture-rich wear. The launch took place in Marini Cafe which is located in Suria KLCC. I was the first to reach the location as I know it's hard to find a parking spot in that mall. 


Available in 6 creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip colour in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip color. This creamy matte colour Lip Crayon can be worn everyday either alone or layered under a Lip Gloss or Lip Shine.



This Lip Crayon is available in 6 stunning shades:

  • Carolina Coast
  • Napa Vineyard
  • Niagara Overlook
  • Redwood Forest
  • Sedona Sands
  • Hawaiian Smolder

This lightweight moisture for a comfortable, everyday wear formula is infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil and Jojoba Oil without added flavour or fragrance,  leaves the lips feeling soft and smooth. The Lip Crayon has a precise application with an updated tool with no sharpening required. Definitely this would be one of my favourite lip product from Burt's Bees.

Which one is your favourite shade? 

Their authentic formula of lip color is 100% natural which delivers great color payoff and effect with FIVE different finishes. The formula consists of skin-loving ingredients which will help to moisturise, nourish and soften your lips, so that you get a dual benefit of color and care which synthetic lip products can't compare to.


Their Lip Gloss has 12 shades of rich, pearlized color combine with moisturizing Sunflower Seed Oil and nourishing Beeswax to make lips soft and luminiscent. These 100% natural Lip Gloss deliver rich pearlized color with high impact shine are just the thing to set off your stunning smile. 


Burt's Bees also introduced their best seller, Beeswax Lip Balm in the squeezable tube form. This lip balm used to be in stick form and no longer available in the market anymore. Other than that, they introduced 3 new flavours for their Lip Balm range which is Coconut & Pear, Wild Cherry and Vanilla Bean

Lip Crayon in Niagara Overlook - RM81.50

I tried all the colours of Lip Crayon on that day and I fell in love with them immediately. The colours were amazing. The matte finish at the same time create some moist on lips. It will be perfect if I apply Lip Balm before applying the Lip Crayon for a more moist lips. 

Yours truly (: 

The make up artist, Miss Pauline Tan gave us tips on how to apply lip products on our lips. Shini, Aliza and Samia were the models of the day and they were dressed up according to the themes given. 


When we are layering lip colours, it is best to start with the product that has the most matte finish or the richest colour. this means the Lip Crayons are always going to be applied first and then topped with any of Burt's Bees lip colour products.


Here's are some of the DO's and DON'Ts for Lips:

Do's

  • Before  you apply lip color, always use lip balm as the base to cover the fine lines and moisturise your lips
  • Use lip treatment as your lip mask at least once a week to revitalise your lip skin
  • Remove dead lip skin by softening the dead skin with a thick layer of lip balm. Remove the dead skin by rolling the wet Q-tips on the lips after few minutes


Don'ts
  • Expose to sunlight for too long
  • Lick your lips frequently
  • Use poor quality lip color


Anyway, there's a good news to all Burt's Bees fans. You can now purchase the Lip Crayon at 20% off by mentioning this promo code #bbmakeyourlipsmile at the Burt's Bees outlets.

That's not all, I am also giving out ONE Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard to ONE lucky winner!


All you have to do is to follow all the tasks given in the Rafflecopter and one lucky winner will be randomly picked from Random.org. Good luck! :D 



Burt's Bees Lip Crayon is now available at all Burt's Bees and Sephora outlets nationwide. For more information about their new Lip Crayon, please visit their website and Facebook page.

[Beauty Review + Event] CLIO Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow ❤

Hola readers! I am pretty sure based on the subject above, most of you will know what I will be talking about today. Lately I am keen in writing about beauty posts since I am a beauty addict. Whenever I have new products in the market, I will try it out and of course would love to share the reviews with friends around me. 

Most of you might know that I went through an eyebrow embroidery process last year and it was painful but somewhat tolerable. I have a scar on my right eyebrow which is the reason why I went for embroidery because normal eyebrow pencil won't do the trick on it. 

However last few weeks, I tried out this best selling product in Muse by Watsons from CLIO Professional which really caught my attention. 

CLIO Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow

Introducing this Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow by CLIO! This is the first 3-in-1 Kill Brow that can complete colouring, shaping and tattoo all at once. 



It is a dual-type tattoo eyebrow which is Tattoo Pen on one side and Brow Mascara on the other side. The tattoo pen helps to create shape definition while the brow mascara is used to add definition and volume to the eyebrow. 


CLIO Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow in Soft Brown - RM95.30

It's a good tattoo through tanning and not with pigmentation. It naturally makes skin brown by reacting to amino acids in the skin just like sun tan. It is a super resilient waterproof brow that is water and sweat proof with Cross Combination Network film.

Here's some of the CLIO products that were displayed on the table  for us to try out: 

Kill Brow Conte Powder Kit - RM95.30

CLIO Kill Brow Conte Powder Kit is a powder-type brow kit with fixing wax that keeps it long lasting. The silky sliding effect makes each and every eyebrow looking natural without smudging.

Kill Brow Tattoo Lasting Gel Pencil - RM42.30

CLIO Kill Brow Tattoo Lasting Gel Pencil is a long lasting eyebrow gel pencil that works better than any other eyebrow pencil. It has powerful waterproof and gentle to each brow hair. 


CLIO Malaysia also gav us some makeup tutorial by using their CLIO products. The model of the day was Miss Mia Chai. (: The makeup artist started off with the CLIO Kill Cover Liquid Foun-Wear Cushion.


CLIO Kill Cover Liquid Foun-Wear gives Miss Mia an excellent coverage and impressive thin adhesion that feels like our own skin. It also provides the luxurious and sophisticated makeup that you can always dreamed of.

Kill Cover Liquid Foun-Wear Cushion - RM169.50

The 3D dual effect of air-touch powder and glossy-up oil with high refractive index leaves skin clear and naturally radiant. It also provides velvet finishing without stickiness and makes your skin texture smooth and luxurious. 

Her eyebrows are looking natural with the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 

The make up artist also showed us on how to apply CLIO Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow which is their best selling product. The tattoo pen can be applied 8 hours before sleep so that your skin will look flawless even after cleansing and self-tanned. 

Another amazing part is that you can just apply your Brow Mascara the next day without having to reapply Tattoo Pen anymore. When you retouch your eyebrows for 2 - 3 days in a row, you are able to maintain the tattoo effect for a long time. 


The makeup artist also applied highlighter on Mia's nose bridge and forehead to enhance her look. 

Eyeliner on Mia's eyes

Korean make up does not require to create wing end on the corner of the eyes. So therefore, the eyeliner would stop at the corner of the eyes. 


The make up artist later on applied the CLIO Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Shadow after the eyeliner application to create a more natural look. 


The makeup artist completed the look with CLIO Salon De Cara which is created for salon perfect volume. This waterproof mascara range which coats the lashes like a manicure for salon lash that does not run. She used three types of mascara in this range - Roller Cara, Roll Brush Cara and Hand Cara. Each types of mascara cater for different types of lashes you wish to achieve. 


The makeup artist completed Mia's look with a super bright red lips from CLIO Virgin Kiss Lipnicure. This Lipnicure is a lipstick in gloss form which has matte finish that stays all day. It does not crack on lips and has rich and luxurious colour pigmentation. She also added some some highlighter around the lips for a defined sexy lips.


Personal Review 

On the other hand, I personally think that the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow is a product which every girls should own. I like how it stays on my eyebrow for more than 8 hours every day that I do not have to worry about fixing my eyebrow every 3 hours. 


The colour still remained on my skin even I did my core workout the other day. (: It also gives me a more natural effect looking eyebrow which I do not have to worry about overdoing it and look like a 'Shin Chan'. 



As for the application wise, the Tattoo Pen is easier to be used and easy to be coloured on my eyebrow. There are 3 colours to choose from which are Soft Brown, Earth Brown and Dark Brown


The Brow Mascara on the other hand helps to create the best facial radiance. Normally you should choose the colour of the brow mascara according to your hair colour. I received a Soft Brown which is the lightest and yet it still gave me the natural brown colour look even though my hair is dark in colour. 

When applying makeup, take an adequate amount on the brush and comb your eyebrows along their texture. Do not take too much of the mascara as it will look super weird on your eyebrow. However, I was hoping that the brush would be in smaller size as it's hard for me to brush my eyebrows with their medium size brush. Try not to reapply one coat after another as the mascara on your eyebrow will be hardened as soon as you sweep through your eyebrow. 



CLIO Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow and the rest of CLIO products are now available in Muse by Watsons and selected Watsons stores in Malaysia. For more information, please visit their Facebook: www.facebook.com/CLIO-Malaysia

[Beauty Review] Shiseido Ibuki Range ❤

Hola readers! Remember that I blogged about Shiseido Bounce Back from Emergencies event few days ago? Today I am going to do review of Shiseido Ibuki range courtesy of Shiseido Malaysia. You may read here about the event I have attended weeks ago.

Products from Shiseido Ibuki 
You can finally rescue your skin from the beauty emergencies that strike all too often. With Ibuki, it stabilizes your bare skin and helps to keep it trouble-free. Shiseido Ibuki is a range especially for women in their twenties and thirties based on comprehensive research of their lifestyles and skin physiology.

L-R: Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleanser, Multi Solution Gel, Softening Concentrate and Protective Moisturiser

This exclusive multifunctional hydration line builds skin's resistance to UV rays, dryness and prevent breakouts caused by daily stress. With long lasting moisture, skin becomes smoother, healthier and more radiant.

Shiseido Ibuki Gentle Cleaner - RM127.20

I am going to start off with Ibuki Gentle Cleanser. This is a gentle yet creamy foaming cleanser that will retain your skin's moisture level. 


This cleanser thoroughly removes my impurities and excess sebum on my skin. My skin feels fresh and soft as if I have applied some moisturiser on my skin. However be careful not to squeeze too much of cleanser as it lathers into a rich foam with only a small amount. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth. 

Ibuki Softening Concentrate 75ml - RM180.20

Ibuki Softening Concentrate is a concentrated softener that penetrates quickly and deeply to build the skin's resistance by filling it with moisture. It also enhances the effects of moisturizer. 


After cleansing, simply pump out an adequate amount on the cotton pad and slightly wipe on your face. I have the habit of pumping a lot of toner / lotion as I like my face to be wet and hydrated. However, I noticed that this Softening Concentrate from Ibuki does not need to be applied too much on the face as the skin is soft and hydrated instantly. 

Ibuki Protective Moisturizer SPF 15 (75ml) - RM185.50

This Ibuki Protective Moisturiser SPF18 is a multi-functional moisturiser that protects against UV and other environmental hazards, reduces the appearance of visible pores and breakouts and counteracts caused by dryness. This moisturiser will create a brighter and more luminous look over the time. 


The texture of the moisturizer is slightly watery so therefore put an adequate amount on your face to ensure that your skin is fully protected. It's not sticky and my skin feels hydrated and moist after applying it. Since this moisturiser also comes with SPF 18, you do not have to worry about applying sun block. However for safety reason, I also apply Shiseido Suncare 360 for double protection. *hehe* 

Ibuki Multi Solution Gel 30ml - RM160.06
Another product that you should have in your skincare regime. Introducing Ibuki Multi Solution Gel which is a high impact gel solution for skincare emergencies. This gel helps to rescue you form the multiple skin concerns that can appear due to stress and lifestyle habits. Its unique texture adheres well to problem areas to deliver effective ingredients. 

Ibuki rescues your skin and  rebalancing skin's healthy functions, is formulated with ingredients that intensively target unexpected skin problems. The surface cells shrink and PhytoTarget Complex intensively improves the weakened barrier function, helping to restore skin's resistance.


This effective ingredients directly work on breakouts, roughness and pore-problematic bacteria, permeate the skin, to quickly correct skin problems. 





This Multi Solution Gel can be used as part of your skincare regimen and you may use it as the last step after your moisturiser. This unique bouncy texture locks in dewy moisture and a rich supply of skin-reviving ingredients directly to your skin. 

The Connective Memory Network generates a pleasant texture that spreads evenly, as each highly resilient flower micelle maintains its shape and the gellan gum like a Japanese agar, adds a refreshing dewiness. These two elements balance each other in the formulation, creating a texture that is comfortable for breakout-prone skin as well as dry problem areas. 



When you apply to the skin



It feels light, soft and smooth on my skin. I also noticed the difference on my pimple after dabbing the Multi Solution Gel on it. The redness of the pimple subsides after that. This is impressing. 

The redness of the pimple on my forehead has subsided. 

This Multi Solution Gel can also be applied over makeup. Take a small amount and dab it lightly onto the skin in case you have breakouts. However I noticed that it's not advisable to apply over makeup as  it makes my makeup / foundation looks slightly cakey after applying. So I would suggest you to remove your makeup before you apply it on your face and retouch your makeup after applying it. 

Overall I love this Multi Solution Gel because this gel is packaged in a small spherical jar which is small enough to fit into my palm and stow away in my handbag. This comes in handy because skin emergencies can happen anytime. I would love to have a spatula for this gel because I do not want my dirty hands to get in touch with the rest of the gel when I want to apply. 



Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel and the rest of the products are now available at all Shiseido counters and Sephora outlets nationwide. To know more about Shiseido Ibuki range, do visit www.facebook.com/ShiseidoMalaysia or www.shiseido.com.my. Thank you Shiseido Malaysia for the products. (:
