Every seasons’ skin care essential.. The little black tube from Down Under!

PURE Papaya Ointment – the 100% natural, petrochemical-free multi-tasking skin care essential from Australia. In addition to papaya, or pawpaw, active ingredients include soothing calendula, shea butter, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, styrax benzoin resin, silica,
beeswax and vitamin E.

dermatitis, the aftercare of tattoos and tattoo removal, and much more besides.

PURE Papaya Ointment is the ultimate multipurpose skin care product, and is a cult beauty product in its native Australia where its as at  home in a make up bag as it is the medicine cabinet.

WHAT ARE PETROCHEMICALS?
Petrochemicals are manufactured from crude petroleum, one of the most common petrochemcials found in skin care
products is petrolatum, also known as petroleum jelly.

WHY SHOULD PETROLEUM JELLY SHOULD BE AVOIDED?
• It is listed as a probable human carcinogen by the European Union (EU)
• It is banned in EU cosmetics (unless very specific purification standards are met)
• It is commonly contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are strongly linked to a wide
variety of detrimental diseases
• It tends to interfere with the body’s own natural moisturising mechanism, leading to dry skin and chapping

25g – S$14.90 / 100g – S$29.90
PURE Papaya Ointment is available at Guardian, Watsons, BHG and all good health food stores.

My personal thought and experience:

When I received this product, I immediately feel that the packaging is a bit manly. It’s in a rubberized black tube. The packaging is handy, it’s lightweight and it’s easy to put this on my bag. The texture of this product is something that I like; it’s oily and it’s very moisturizing for the lips. My lips are tend to be dry most of the time and after wearing this for a week, I really see the result. My lips are much more moisturized and I love how this lip product moisturize my lip; it doesn’t peel my lip and it has a decent amount of shine. Other than my lip, I also use this to moisturize my dry cuticle. I haven’t see much improvement this product does to my cuticle but I hope I will see more in the next few days. The smell of this product is just fine. It’s not strong yet still has a slight papaya scent. I don’t ming paying $14.90 for this 25gr of product. The quality and the quantity of this product worth the price 🙂

YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige Review + FOTD

Hello!

Today I’m going to review  YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick #1 in Nude Beige. This lipstick is part of my YSL Haul.

Firstly, I love the packaging of YSL Rouge Volupte. It looks very  classy and elegant. It’s heavy and I love the gold plated casing of this lipstick. Again, the YSL logo in the middle of the casing just adds up the luxuriousness of this lipstick.

Nude beige is a pretty pinkish beige. I’m such a big fan of this kind of color. Previously I have reviewed YSL Rouge Volupte #7 in Pink Lingerie and I think Nude Beige suits my taste better. Pink Lingerie is a very sweet pink but it looks a bit pale on me. Nude beige has more nude color tone which I think suits me quite well 🙂

I don’t really like the texture of this lipstick. It’s way too creamy. Moreover when my lips are dry, this lipstick emphasizes the dryness of the lipstick. One way to cover the flaws is to add some lipgloss on top of this.

I did a simple FOTD with YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige. For my eyes, it was simply a black eyeliner with a pair of false eyelashes. I used MAC bronzer  in Bronze to sculpt my face and for my cheek I am using Jill Stuart Blush in #14 Lantana Honey

Soon I will be posting my review on YSL Touche Eclat 😀

Thank you for reading.

 

YSL Haul :D

Hello all,

I’ve been quite busy with my job and personal life lately. I bought these items 3 weeks ago when YSL just opened their flagship store in Singapore. I will do a separate post for my review of these items. Here’s what I bought :

 

I’ll see you again in the next post in a few days time 😀

Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipstick in 89 Gracile

Recently Chanel has just released a reformulated Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipstick. The range of this lipstick is quite broad; it has reds, nudes and pinks. I am actually attracted to few shades in this range but so far I only picked one. Initially 88 Évanescente caught my attention but I finally picked 89 Gracile. I am still wondering whether I should get 88 Évanescente but I will give my self a time since it’s not a limited edition 😉

Firstly I am really in love with the texture. It applies smoothly and it doesn’t peel my lips. It is very moisturizing too.

My lips tend to be dry most of the time. My favorite thing about this lipstick is that it doesn’t emphasize the dryness of my lip. It covers my lip very well and it is moisturizing.

I pulled some lipstick colors that I think might be similar to Chanel Gracile, you can see the comparison in the photo below.

Dior Cherie Bow (here) seems to be the closest comparison to Chanel Gracile. There’s a slight difference between them though; Cherie Bow seems to leans more towards peachy and Gracile seems to be more pinkish.

Here’s how it looks on me 😉

 

I hope you like the look 🙂

Have you checked out the Rouge Allure Intense Lipstick Range? What do you think of them?

My Pick from Dior Fall 2012 – Golden Jungle 001 Golden Khaki Review

Dior Fall 2012 Make Up Collection has made its way to Singapore. Out of so many brands’ fall collection, I must sat that Dior tempted me the most. The collection is wide and the products are gorgeous. Moreover I am a sucker for neutral colors, so when I saw the promo pictures I immediately knew that I am going to get few products from this collection.

Here are the things that I bought last weekend plus the samples given by the SA:

I am happy that I got the new Dior Addict Perfume samples. It smells sweet and fresh! I like it! I also got the mini 5 couleurs eyeshadow which is insanely cute! I don’t know when I would be using this but looking at it already makes me feel so happy 🙂 I got few skincare sample and mini mascara.

In this post, I am going to review Golden Jungle 001 Golden Khaki and in the end of the post you can see my FOTD with that palette 🙂

Dior Golden Jungle is available in two colors; 001 Golden Khaki and 002 Golden Brown. I must admit that Golden brown really tempted me. The matte dark brown is just so pretty and the lip color is more appealing to me. However since I knew that I would definitely get 5 Couleurs Golden Savannah, I skipped Golden brown and took Golden Khaki with me. I don’t own many khaki palette; I don’t even think I have one. Most of my khaki eyeshadows are single eyeshadow or part of my neutral color palette. I am sure I have made the right decision to get this color 🙂

 

Firstly, the packaging is superb! It made of metal case and it’s very heavy. Heavy casing gives me the impression that I am not cheated. I am paying a hefty price tag of S$100 for this, so I don’t like it when I got a lightweight and simple packaging. The leopard (or should I say Army?) print of this is gorgeous. There are 3 colors in this palette; a creamy silvery with minimal glitter on the top, a matte dark brown and a khaki green with a taupe undertones.

This palette is also comes with a lip color. Many eye & lip palette offers sultry and beautiful colors but the eyeshadow will eventually mess the lip color. I ended up never using the lip palette anymore which is wasted. The lip color is a sheer coral with glitter. I am liking the color a lot. One thing that makes me buy this palette is that they separate the lip color with the eyeshadow. It is so thoughtful of them to design this palette with a cover on the lip color. This will prevent the eyeshadow to mess the lip color.

Dior often launch beautifully printed eyeshadows, but many of the colors are not wearable. That’s the main reason why I am not buying those eyeshadows. But I gave up on this, this one is very pretty and the colors are just versatile. I think this one is really worth it especially this is a ‘limited edition’ thing 🙂

I did a look with Golden Khaki 🙂

Makeup Products used in this look:

Eyes: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in #08 Champagne for the base and inner eyelid, Golden Khaki eye palette, K-Palette real Lasting Eyeliner, Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Cheek: NARS Angelika, Wong Kar Wai for Shu Uemura 

Lip: Golden Khaki lip color

 

What do you think of Dior Fall collection? Are you getting anything from this collection?

Thank you for reading 🙂
