Bonjour Amigos!

BOURJOIS has recently release a new line of cosmetic into our beauty market and today, I am going to review this latest sensation.
Are you as excited as I am? ;D



"I'm Dazzlingly shiny but not Sticky..."
"I'm long-lasting but don't dry out the lips..."
"I'm surprisingly delicate and yet offer a great coverage..."
"I'm light and refreshing but also intense and glowing..."
"Exceeding refreshing and sensuous, I'm sought after by everyone!"

- BOURJOIS -



*Unboxing*


The BOURJOIS Rouge Edition Aqua Laque has 6 appealing properties. Let's take a look :)


*Sexy&Hot*

1. IN IT'S ELEMENT IN WATER 
This new Hybrid Lipstick has higher water concentration and infused with Nymphea extract which promises lasting moisture up to 10hours. Because this beauty babe is so smooth and fineyou won't feel that you are wearing lipstick as it also comes in non-sticky formula. 


2. PASSIONATE ABOUT COLOUR 

BOURJOIS Aqua Laque contains the utmost pure and glowing colours. The absence of butter and wax has ensured finest  quality of colour. This gives us the most explosive colours as each one fully expressed its colour spectrum.



3IN LOVE WITH ITS REFLECTION 
This babe has a new name; the wet look shine. Redefining shine, Aqua Laque has it all; sophisticated and modern, elegant and sensual, intense and natural. 


4. LOYAL, IT DOESN'T MAKE A RUN FOR IT 

With its emulsion-like properties, inspired from technology used in foundations, BOURJOIS has reduce the presence of oil so that the lipstick would not budge or transfer onto small cracks when applied. 


5. IT KNOWS HOW TO CHARM 
Aqua Laque comes in an elegantly faceted high-shine fully chrome cap, revealing pure and shimmering colours on the inside. Doesnt matter if your style is chic, beautiful, feminine or Parisian, there is a colour for everyone. Its soft, dense flock applicator allows accurate application for the perfect lips. 

6. AN ECCENTRIC LINE UP OF HUMOUR 
Last but not least, Aqua Laque comes in 8 pure and intense colours, namely: 
  •           APPECHISSANT                           Shade of a peachy nude 
  •   ROSE ON THE ROCK                            Rose nude shade 
  •              BRUN’ CROYABLE                          Hint of red, pink and caramel 
  •               VIENS SI TU ROSES                           Similar to a Raspberry colour 
  •              RED MY LIPS                                 Intense red of Femme Fatale 
  •        FEELING REDDY                             Energy in shade of red 
  •                        FUCHSIA PERCHE                          Fuchsia (more of warm undertone)
  • BABE IDOL                                                 Light pink 


My Opinion 


I am not the type of person who wear Fuchsia even though it goes really well with fair skin ladies. Just wasn’t bold enough because it is a colour that makes it’s wearer stands out. Anyway, you’ll never know if you didn’t try :) 



The texture was indescribable; It’s almost like emulsion thickness but yet feels light on skin. I expected Aqua Laque to feel think on lips but I was surprised. It is absolute weightless with a little bit of water-sensation. Altogether pleasantly fresh

*Trying for the Classic look*

I don’t know if it’s because of Fuchsia color in nature, but Fuchsia Perche requires two layers of application for the perfect coverage. One thing I like about it was no lip liner is required at all! The applicator is designed in a way for fine lips lining with the help of this hybrid lipstick’s texture. You can see from my pictures how defined my lips are.
Holding true to it’s words, Aqua Laque is able to retain moisture. 
Not to mention it also smells great too <3
I like how it leaves a sheer tinting after wearing out.

How to Choose the Right Eyelash Curler + BENEFIT Roller Lash [REVIEW]

Hello Everyone!
It has been quite a while since my last post and I hope you all are doing fine :)

Constantly on the look out for lash enhancing products, I believed that some of you can closely relate to. 
In my possession, I have the Classic Metal Clamp Curler, eyelash serum and mascaras. 

There are many MANY types of lash curlers and bottom are just the few you can get in the market.


*Disclaimer: Image can be view here*

They have the Compact Curler (Left bottom White), Classic Metal Clamp Curler (Left top), Metal Curler with Spring Tension (Bottom second) and finally, Heated Wand Curler (Right pink).
All these curlers have their own functions, so it is depending on which lash category do you belong to.

~ ♡ ~

Compact Curlers are made of plastic; safer to use, hence suitable for beginners. 
Disadvantage: Less curling power.

Classic Metal Clamp Curler is suitable for medium to long lashes, preferred by experienced users. When it says classic, It meant CLASSIC; It is the pioneers of all lash curlers we see today. 
Comes in full lash or half lash curling size (smaller is easier to manage) not to mention, gives good curling powers with PRACTICE*.
Disadvantage: Do not choose this device unless you have steady hands as it can get very painful. (generally speaking from experience)

Metal Curler with Spring Tension  is suitable for medium to long lashes. It has a resistant spring, therefore less damage on the lashes for heavy handed users. Gives reliable curls. 

Last but not least, is the latest technology; Heated Wand Curler. This I have no opportunity to try yet but hopefully in near future. 
Best for short, sparse, hard-to-curl lashes, lash extension users and people who tend to apply mascara before curling (Why do I get a feeling that it is hinting at me > < )
To apply mascara before curling can be intensely damaging for lashes when you are using the Classic Metal Clamp Curler (Again speaking for past experience) So, PLEASE refrain from doing this.
It uses heat like a hair curler to gives you the curl.
Disadvantage: Avoid applying the heat too close to your eyelids (just like how you use a hair curler) 

~ ♡ ~

I would like to share on my mishaps when it comes to mechanical lash curling.
Having very short lashes, not to mention single eyelids, lash curling can be a real pain in the ass.
I have suffered countless times of loosing lashes and pinching of my eyelids by accident. Although it has been over 5 years since I start using one, I still make mistakes like a newbie. >_<

First of all, I need to thank Shiv B and Benefit Cosmetics for this awesome dream-come-true mascara
*throws confetti*


Benefit Cosmetics has once again broke the conventional beauty records.
When they came out with this beauty product, I am practically drooling to get hold of them.

This Roller Lash Mascara technically replace the need of any eyelash curler. It's amazing Hook 'n' Roll brush separates, lifts and curls our lashes up to 12 HOURS! The mascara contains Provitamin B5 and Serin, which is known to keep the hair strong and smooth. Benefit Cosmetic claimed this new Mascara-Next-Door is also water-resistant and easily removed.



Let's start "Hook 'n' Roll" <3


How to apply

Gently wiggle the mascara wand from base of lash to tip.
Repeat across the lash line to ensure each lash is properly coated
Repeat to achieve desirable look.

To achieve super curl AND length, apply ROLLER LASH first, 
followed by THEY'RE REAL! LENGTHEN MASCARA on top of it.



*Beauty in progress*

Ends results #1: Lateral view
Look at how curled up my right eyelash compared to my left.

Ends results #2: Front view

You can see the results on the above picture.
My right eye's lashes is remarkably longer and more obvious compared to the none-mascara left eye.


Product Review

The Roller Lash Mascara is really one of a kind. It lifts and curls my lashes within minutes of application minus the pain of conventional lash curling. I can save back my energy on applying falsie eyelashes. No clumping effects! They only come in Ink Black color and gives off the Satin finishing effect.
You've got to have some patience though in allowing proper drying of the applied mascara to prevent unnecessary messy transfer, which I don't think is a big issue.
Personally, I find this mascara isn't as water-resistant as I thought it would be. Again, it is my own problem for having watery eyes but with careful tears-dapping skills, the smudging won't be too obvious. However, I strongly agree it is easy to remove without the aid of any makeup removal solution :)
Love the unique design of this mascara <3

*Say Hello to this new revolutionary Mascara babe* 

You can find this mascara on Benefit Cosmetics website or any Benefit shop outlets.

My 2015 Makeup

What is your makeup resolution for 2015?

Light makeup can go a long way when you use the right products. 
In the past, I only wear makeup during outing with friends or on special occasions as I have tendency of acne breakouts. It is also partially contributed by lack of skin maintenance. >< After much reflection, this year I decided to challenge myself to achieve natural flawless look with minimal makeup. They call it Naked Makeup ;)

I must have been on Santa's Good Girls and Boys list 
because my wish was granted.
:D


It was only last Christmas, I received a beauty box from The Butterfly Project Christmas Party and here are some of of the lovely surprises. I have been using them loyally since then :)

PINK CRAZE! <3 


1. MAYBELLINE Color Show Nail Polish #004 Berry Sexy
2. COLLECTION Hotlights Lipgloss #4 Sparkle
3. KOJI Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner (Deep Black)
4. MAYBELLINE Baby Lips #ElectroPop

COLLECTION Hotlights Lipgloss #4 Sparkle is mine <3 hehehe~


I didn't know why they call it Hotlights until I uncap it. This lipgloss comes with built-in light and side mirror (Refer to above image). Speak about ultimate convenience! 
No more flimsy touch-ups especially in dim surroundings. 
I call it my 3-in-1 Lipgloss survival kit XD


What I love about this product is the gorgeous sparkle. I remember my last glittery lipgloss was from Lip Ice but this has nothing similar in comparison. It is non-sticky and the moisturizing power lasted me up to 4 hours. And the 3-in-1 package *Double thumbs up*


*TADA!* KOJI Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner (Deep Black)

So many wishlist on my cosmetic wishlist and KOJI's product is definitely on it.
I have never bought another liquid eyeliner since my Maybelline's because one just last me a very VERY long time. Probably I should start putting in more effort in makeup-ing to work hahhaha


I freaking adore this cute liquid eyeliner! 
When they mentioned Deep Black, they mean Deep BLACK
Now I can finally understand why some of my cosplayer friends said they cannot live house without it. 
The pigmentation is simply superb, doesn't fade on top of eyeshadow applied. 
The tip is just nice for single eyeliders like me. *wink*
 Leave it to dry properly after application and it will be waterproof fair enough :)


As for MAYBELLINE's Color Show Nail Polish #004 Berry Sexy & Baby Lips #ElectroPop, 
you all know how much of a fan I am of Maybelline. :D
I am so glad that Electric Pop finally has lip tinting properties, not to mention it smells great and contains Vitamin E, which serves as an antioxidant.
Kinda feeling pinky joyful girl right now <3


*I applied the Hotlight Lipgloss on top of Baby Lips lipbalm*
 So much for my attempted 'Natural' makeup. 

So, what do you think? 
I would love to hear from you <3
