Estee Lauder – Satin Gold Nail Lacquer

I rarely get my fingernails done, being a guitarist. But I was to go to my officemate’s wedding and such event means going all out and pretty. *lol* I had a complete foot spa with pedicure and manicure. I didn’t want something that might ruin the “innocence” my white dress shows, so I chose this:

Satin Gold nail lacquer

I got the nail polish a few months ago. It came with an Estee Lauder makeup set. The shiny soft pink color is so pretty. That and dress really suited me. I looked so girly which is the opposite of how I really am. *lol*

I know I should have posted this earlier when summer just started, but it’s not over yet. Having a sunscreen in this extreme heat is a must to protect our skin.

1. DDF DAILY MATTE SPF 15
2. Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 15 Continuous Clear Spray

Review: MAC Pink Swoon made me swoon

Tis time for another beauty product review! Let me introduce you to my new favorite blush, MAC Pink Swoon.

blush reviewblush review

Let me just say that this blush is sooo great. It’s very light pink which, when applied, makes the girl appear blushing! I think this is better than NARS’ Blush in Orgasm. There is a drawback to this great product though. It will only work on fair skin. Otherwise, the blush wouldn’t show. I already have fair skin and Pink Swoon barely registers on camera. See the photo below.

Nu-Pore Make-up Remover

Last month, Jan and I went on an unplanned shopping at Japan Home Center. What I really wanted was those small resealable plastics like Ziplock, but I ended up getting Care Bears and make-up remover wipes.

There were only two packs left, so Jan took the other. I couldn’t forget how she took the Care Bears wipes from me because she thought it was unfair that I had both. When I got another set of Care Bears and Nu-Pore wipes, she was one happy girl. XD;

Sunsilk Damage Repair Sytem

I have a lot of hauls this month yet some of them are free including this Sunsilk Damage Repair System:

Sunsilk Damage Repair System

I requested for the supposedly ‘sample’ pack about 2 months ago, but I only received the package just this Easter Sunday. Our help said that the delivery guy was just using a bicycle. Maybe that explains it took weeks to get here. XD The package includes only the shampoo and conditioner. I wanted the serum, but I shouldn’t really complain because they didn’t send sample sizes. At least a sample size of the serum would have been nice.

FANCL Washing Powder Review

I just got back from Singapore with a paperbag-full of makeup. Oh yeah, the Benefit “Gee That Was Quick” Makeup Remover was confiscated from my carry-on bag because it’s liquid. Bummer. Anyway, this post is about FANCL, not Benefit.

I bought my FANCL Washing Powder 50g for SG$26 (P800+)聽 from Isetan along Orchard Road. FANCL is a Japanese brand established in the 7o’s if I’m not mistaken. I was amused by its novelty because it is powder and I have to use a foaming ball to make the powder into foam. So I bought it and only got to try it awhile ago.

Snapdragon lips

My Snapdragon lipstick is too dry and hard to apply. This is the only matte lipstick I have and it’s making me dislike matte lipsticks generally. 馃檨 Such a waste to throw it away, I thought I’d do a little ‘test’.

Products used:

  • Max Factor Lip conditioner
  • Estee Lauder Snapdragon Lipstick
  • Lavshuca RD-1 Lip gloss

The staying power of the lipstick is about 2 hours tops. I guess whatever ingredient that should have made it glide smoothly or give a bit of shine has dried out. When I did the ‘test’, it lasted for hours even when I had a big cup of tea. The lip gloss is a match for the lipstick. 馃榾

Lavshuca RD-1 lipgloss review

As what I read from various beauty blogs, it’s true that Japanese lip glosses are flavorless and scentless. All my lip glosses are flavored and some are even scented. The Lavshuca is so alien to me. *lol*

Lavshuca RD-1

The color may be red, but it’s almost transparent with a hint of pink. I was right with my hunch that it won’t be like my Estee Lauder and Clinique lip glosses wherein the colors are visible on the lips like how a lipstick would be.
