Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 – 01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow Review

IMG_5393

 

Hello everyone!

Today I have a product from Lunasol to talk about in this post. So I was going out with few of my friends I meet through instagram and few of them are talking about how they love this Lunasol Beige Beige eyeshadow palette. My friends told me how this eyeshadow could never go wrong for daily make up. And well after that conversation and after swatching and observing the palette in Lunasol counter, I bought this Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 which includes #01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow and EX03 lipstick palette. This palette is retailing at $71 in Singapore.

So firstly I will talk about the #01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow Quad

#01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow quad consist of 4 neutral eyeshadow shades. There are 2 shades that I find similar in this palette (top right and bottom left). Both shades looks very similar in the pan but when swatched, both are not the same. They complement the shade very well to each other.

  • Top left: Shimmery  light beige for highlight 
  • Top right: creamy beige
  • Bottom Left: Creamy sandy
  • Bottom Right: creamy mocha

Honestly I am not a huge fan of Lunasol eyeshadow as it is often too sheer and less pigmented. As for this #01 Beige Beige eyeshadow quad, The texture is super smooth and creamy but I must admit that not all of these 4 eyeshadows are greatly pigmented. All 4 shades in this palette is equally creamy and smooth. I can see that there’s a slight fall out from the eyeshadows here but wearing UD primer helps in reducing the fall out a lot.

What I really love from this palette is that you will never go wrong with the shades. The 4 shades complements each other very well. I like to use the shades in the top left and I combine it with the shade in the bottom left to be used as  a base color. The mocha is a great shade to create a soft smokey look. The pigmentation is not the best but it is good enough to build the color that I want for a natural look. In this case the pigmentation helps me to create a really natural look for office make up or brunch date when I prefer to have a minimal eye make up. This eyeshadow will never make you look too much.

And here’s a quick look onto EX03 lipstick palette:

Final thought:

Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 consists of 2 products; 01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow and EX03 Lipstick Palette . This kit is suitable for ladies who wish to purchase eyeshadow kit for their daily usage especially for day look. The eyeshadow and the lipstick kit provides a very nice shade selection to create a very natural “no makeup” make up look. Although fallout is inevitable, you can always dab your brush to the eyeshadow lightly and apply it onto your eyelid and build the shade in few layers. Overall this Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 has meet my expectation in terms of quality.

YSL Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain

IMG_5390

 

Hello hello!

Today I have something very exciting to show you! It’s none other than YSL VERNIS À LÈVRES REBEL NUDES!

In 2012, YSL released a range of Glossy Stains which are highly raved among beauty enthusiasts. Following its success, YSL has just launched VERNIS À LÈVRES REBEL NUDES.

 

Act 2 of a major technological revolution.

For women who want to wear nude shades that are bolder, more radiant and vibrant than ever before, Yves Saint Laurent launches Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes.

Luminescent lip colour thanks to an exclusive new formula. Eight blinding nude shades: Nude Provocateur, Violine Out of Control, Corail Mutin, Fuchsia Tomboy… Because at Yves Saint Laurent, nudes are never boring. They are presented in multiple variations of colour and light. Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes affirm, define, underline. Colour becomes a luminous vibration, a wave loaded with all-new pearl pigments.

 

WHO ARE THE NEW VERNIS À LÈVRES REBEL NUDES DESIGNED FOR?
The new Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes are designed for a new generation of ultra
demanding beauty addicts who live life at high speed. Women who don’t want to hide behind ordinary, opaque make-up. Women who want sophistication without making an elaborate production of it. The technological complexity of the product fades behind the simplicity of its application.
WHAT’S THE SECRET TO SELECTING THE RIGHT NUDE SHADE?
There’s a right shade for ever woman. The most intense? N° 103 Pink No Taboo, N° 104 Fuchsia Tomboy and N° 108 Violine Out of Control, because nude doesn’t stop at beige. The most transparent? N° 101 Nude Provocateur, N° 106 Beige Anarchist and N° 107 Naughty Mauve. Women with fair skin should opt for the orange tones of N° 102 Corail Mutin or N° 105 Corail Hold Up, while those with darker skin can go with all these shades.

 

HOW IS VERNIS À LÈVRES REBEL NUDES APPLIED?
Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes are applied in one or two coats, depending on the desired effect. An even more intense result is obtained with a pencil.

 

WHAT IS YOUR EXPERT SECRET?
Moisten lips well and blot away the excess with absorbent paper. Apply a first coat for a fresh, light, iridescent effect. Wait 20 seconds before reinforcing the colour and the effect with a second coat. And eventually blend lightly with a fingertip if you want to tone down the gloss effect and keep the ‘stain’ aspect.

 

‘‘Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes aren’t meant to be low-key. They’re
meant to exalt the lips. To make light vibrate through colour, in full transparency. It’s all
based on a new pearl finish exclusive to Yves Saint Laurent. The technological advance
makes it even possible to redefine the philosophy of nudes.’’

LLOYD SIMMONDS
Creative Director Make-Up Yves Saint Laurent Beauté

MIX & MATCH
For the occasion, Lloyd Simmonds has created eight variations for lips and nails, to dazzle and play up the look according to your mood with the radiant new Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Rebel Nudes shades and four iconic La Laque Couture shades. For the YSL woman, both singular and plural.

Review:

When I receive the news that YSL is going to have rebel nude range, I feel very excited as I love nude lipstick a lot. There are tonnes of people who YSL glossy stain. I’ve tried few of the glossy stains from the previous collection before and I must admit that none of the previous shade works perfectly for me, mainly because the shades are often too bright for my daily use.

YSL Glossy Stain Rebel Nudes has the same packaging with the previous glossy stain. I love this range’s brush, it is unique and it feel so soft on the lip. The brush also makes the application very easy as it is pointed at the end and hence it’s easy to control.

What I love about YSL Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain is the finish. I love the natural shade on my lips and at the same time the shine it gives. It doesn’t make your lip looks pale, and actually it glams up the whole look because of the gloss.

The gloss doesn’t stay on my lips for long, it stays for about 2-3 hours only. However the color stays on for more than 6 hours.

Some people mentioned to me that they dislike the smell of YSL Glossy Stain. I have to agree on this part as somehow it could be quite strong.  On this part, i think it’s best to try it on the counter and decide if you like it. On my opinion, the scent is quite strong but it doesn’t hinders me to wear it often.

My favorite from this collection is 106 Beige Anarchist and 109 Fuchsia Fugitive. I love to wear Beige Anarchist to office and for my daily activity. Fuchsia Fugitive is a girly and lovely shade that I love to apply for a simple dinner date after work.

Final Thought:

Overall, YSL Rebel Nudes collection has satisfied my needs to have the right shade of YSL Glossy Stain. The gloss fits nicely on my lip;  it doesn’t look to shiny and at the same time it gives the lovely glow on your face.

Hope the review and swatches helps 🙂

Thank you for reading!

Tom Ford Lip Color in 07 Pink Dust

Hi Everyone!

Hope all of you have a great weekend! Weather was horrible in Sydney; non-stop raining, windy and very cold too. The good thing from terrible weather is I have more time at home to do some blogging and home cleaning tho I wish I could stay under my blanket all day!

I have Tom Ford Lip Color in Pink Dust to show and tell.  The packaging is quite similar with Burberry. I found Tom Ford packaging is more luxurious than Burberry because of the touch of gold color.

TF1

To Tom Ford, there is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip. It is the focus of the face and it has the power to define a woman’s whole look. Each Lip Color is Tom Ford’s modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

By Tom Ford.

TF2

This color is very neutral, below is swatch under natural light. For texture, its creamy but not heavy.

TF3

When I was taking pictures for this post, I quickly thought this shade might be very similar with my Dolce & Gabbana in Natural Monica and Burberry Lip Cover in Cameo.

However, when I swatched them and line them together in my arms, they are quite different. Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry more to brown shade while Tom Ford like its name more to pink shade. I’m glad they are different!

Last but not least, my look with Tom Ford lip color

TF7

I’m happy to have Tom Ford Lip Color but price wise its expensive compare to other brand. Retail in Australia for AUD65 and available in selected David Jones stores. Will I buy their lip color again? Maybe if the color very pretty but in the mean time I’m happy with Burberry Lip cover which retail in Australia roughly about AUD40-50.

Thanks for reading.

PS: I know I spelled Dolce & Gabbana incorectly in one of the above picture..I couldn’t be bother to fix it, blame it on my freezing fingers while typing this post 🙂 Have a good week ahead!

Oops I have just realised another typo in the comparison picture, it should be Tom Ford Pink Dust instead of Spanish Pink. Sorry guys!

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss – Kiss You

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe its June already! Time flies… Anyway further to my post about Benefit’s new products (read here). I have ultra plush lip gloss in clear fuchsia (kiss you) to  show and tell.

When I received the package from the lovely team of Benefit Australia, I quite disappointed that they sent me this lip gloss in this shade. The color is totally not me and its very purple in the tube.

benefit1

The packaging is very practical and very young feeling. This kind of lip gloss bring back memories to me. When I was in junior high school, all I wanted is fruity flavour glittery lip gloss in this kind of packaging.

benefit2

The plushness is poutrageous! Our soft & silky glosses glide on sooo smooth, drenching lips in luscious color that’s never sticky. From crystal clear to hot pink, the luxurious formulas give your lips a kissable, sexy sheen.

benefit3

Surprisingly, the color is not as scary as I thought it will be. I should have known its clear fuchsia, so its very sheen and light in my lips. And the best thing is it doesn’t have sticky feeling.
