Suqqu Blend Eyeshadow Color in EX 11 Sumiredama

Hello everyone!

Today I have Suqqu Sumiredama to show you all. Sumiredama is part of Suqqu spring 2013 collection. I am so lucky that I am able to get my hands on this eyeshadow palette. Monica’s sister is so kind to help me to get this palette while she’s in Japan. I am glad that Sumiredama is now part of my make up collection :)

The Packaging:

Sumiredama has a slightly different packaging compared to other Suqqu eyeshadow palette. The color of the casing is in white color with a bit of holographic hues in it. The size is the same with the usual Suqqu eyeshadow packaging. It comes with a tiny brush and sponge.

The Shade & Texture:

One thing that attracts me so much to this eyeshadow palette is the duochromes shade on the bottom left and the top right. I am not really good in describing shades but I hope this helps:

Top Left: The shade in this palette is true to pan – it’s a sheer pale pink. This shade needs to be swatched twice to show the shade.

Top Right: a gorgeous duochrome taupe – bronze. This shade is less sheer compared to the shade on the top left. The pigmentation of this shade is awesome, the color shows perfectly on the first swatch.

Bottom Right: It looks quite yellow in the pan but when it is swatched, it looks more of a milky shade with a very fine shimmer.

Bottom Left: Again this is a duochrome shade; purple – blue toned shimmer. This is the shade that makes me going gaga over this palette. The pigmentation is awesome, it blends perfectly.

Suqqu is famous for its soft & buttery texture. I have to admit that the duo crome shade in Sumiredama has a slightly different texture with my other Suqqu palette. I am not sure if this is because of the duo chrome shade but the purple-blue (bottom left) is rather dry. The shade is truly gorgeous but the texture is not as soft as the other shade in this palette. The other three shade has a great texture – no complains at all.

Fallout is not an issue of this palette. All four shade applies nicely and sets perfectly with primer. The shade lasts for 6 hours with me.

Final Thought:

Suqqu has great range of eyeshadow palette for every day use. I tend to be hesitant to get Suqqu products as it’s expensive and the color looks rather boring after owning few palette of theirs. However Sumiredama is worthy to be acquired for its gorgeous shade. Suqqu has amazed me with the duo chrome shade in their spring collection.

I hope my review helps :)

The First See by Chloé fragrance

See By ChloÇ Creative Shot

a mischievous game of hide and seek

a breath of perfume, an intriguing personality…

draped in the natural elegance of her well-known sister, the see by chloé girl twirls. instinctively playful, smiling, immersed in the moment… urban, self-confident, she arouses the unexpected and cultivates contrasts. assertive, seductive, cheerful, hers is a natural smile. her bold and perfumed moods stir the air, dizzying those who look at her.

an addictive fragrance that awakens the senses

created by perfumer michel almairac (robertet), the new see by chloé fragrance reveals an addictive floral scent. like a sweet smile, the first sparkling notes of bergamot stir the senses. tangy essences. elusive, the see by chloé girl flies off. in an accord of apple blossom, the grace of jasmine caresses this natural seductress. an olfactory game of hide and seek uncovers sensual notes of sandalwood and vanilla.

a playful bottle

barely escaped from its glossy pink case, the perfume is revealed by a multi-faceted bottle. a silver ring outlines the pink letters of the see by chloé logo. the glass pleats and the three adorable feet make the precious juice sparkle. mirror effects and transparency compose a luminous game of hide and seek.

defying the rules of the game, the see by chloé girl naturally reveals herself. she waves, the bottle’s silver ring slipped around her finger. playfully, her hand twirls around it before gripping it furtively. seizing her chance, giving in to temptation.

a call of freedom

joyful, spontaneous, full of wonders… bette franke, the face of see by chloé, has been caught by surprise. unusual snapshot, stolen moment in a mischievous game of hide and seek.

natural, irresistible, she enjoys herself.
her defiant gaze suggests a possible escape…

My Thoughts:

I have always been a fan of Chloe Perfume. I have finished my first bottle and now I am on my second bottle. And when I received the news that See by Chloe is going to release a new perfume, I am so excited!! :D I am pretty sure that I’m going to love the scent.

See by Chloe has a very nice bottle with a pink “See by Chloe” printed on it. It looks very girly :) It smells so fresh; it has a sweet fruitty scent that makes me feel young and energetic. This perfume lasts with me for 5 hours and I need to spray more after that.

PS: I need to make a confession that I really love this perfume and I actually just bought its body lotion :p I just couldn’t resist getting the matching lotion scent to moisturize my body. I just LOVE it!

Launching exclusively at metro paragon on 22nd march 2013. available from april 2013 at tangs orchard, tangs vivocity, takashimaya d.s., robinsons raffles city, robinsons centrepoint, robinsons marina bay sands and isetan scotts.

YSL UV SHIELD HIGH PROTECTION UV SKINCARE

Hello every one!

Today I’m gonna share with you a newly launched product from YSL, it’s the UV Shield High Protection UV Skincare. I believe this product was launched on March 2013. This product is readily available in YSL boutique in ION Orchard and Tangs Beauty Hall Singapore.

With a scorching hot sun in this Sunny Singapore, UV protection is a need for my everyday use. I have tried several brands UV protection but when it’s YSL who comes out with this product, it gets me so excited! To know more about this product, keep on reading! ;)

What makes this product so special? According to YSL , here are the secrets of triple shields:

  • AN ANTI-POLLUTION BARRIER: enriched with Shea butter extract with detoxi- fying properties to protect skin against everyday urban aggressions by capturing floating metal particles.
  • OPTIMAL SPF50 pA++++ UV PROTECTION: a filtration system containing a blend of patented filters for high protection against UVB rays and boosted UVA protection (pA++++) to help effectively combat premature skin-aging and the formation of sun-induced brown spots.
  • ANTI FREE RADICAL PROTECTION: antioxidant vitamin E combined with tyrosi- nase-inhibiting peony extract protects the skin against free radicals generated by external aggressions. 

The Packaging:

YSL UV Shield has a very simple packaging. There’s nothing fancy or luxurious. The tube is a squeezable with a handy size. You don’t need to worry that you’ll squeeze too much product as the end of the tube is really small so it’s unlikely that you’ll squeeze too much products.

The Texture & Smell:

YSL UV Shield looks white when squeezed out from the tube. However after spreading it evenly onto your face, it would look very natural. There’s no white sheen like the traditional UV protection has. The texture of this product feels light and non sticky at all. I personally love the smell of this products a lot :) I mist admit that it smells pretty strong but the scents is very nice. I am not really good at describing scents, but it has a refreshing flowery smell which makes me feel refreshed everytime I apply my makeup every morning before work.

YSL UV shield is recommended to be used before your foundation or bb cream. I use this UV shield frequently especially if my foundation only gives me less than SPF 30++ protection. The sun in Singapore is very strong so I must make sure that my skin is well protected. YSL UV shield does not affect the lasting power of my foundation, so you don’t need to worry that your skin will get oily or your foundation will fades after using this as a base make up.

Final Thought:

Overall YSL Top Secret UV Shield provides a very nice texture and smell. It’s a nice UV protection to be worn as a base under your foundation to give you that extra protection you need especially when the sun is strong.

 

Have you ever tried this? What’s your fave UV protection product?

 

Thank you for reading.

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lights Palette

Hello everyone!

Have you ever wanting a practical & cute design for your everyday eyeshadow? The eyeshadow palette that will fullfil your everyday eye makeup needs? If so, you need to read my review of Shu Uemura Tokyo Light Palette :)

Today I bring you a Shu Uemura eyeshadow palette in Tokyo Lights. I believe this eyeshadow is a Japan exclusive, however this is also available on Singapore Airlines Krishop or Cathay Pacific Marcopolo. I bought this palette when I travel with Cathay Pacific. I doubt this palette will be featured on the inflight magazine for a long time, so I suggest that if you know that you or your friend are travelling with Singapore Airline/Cathay Pacific, go and get it :)

The Packaging:

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lights comes in the usual Shu Uemura eyeshadow case. The design of this palette is very cute; it looks very kawaii! I love the pink prints of Tokyo towers and that twinkling lights. It reminds me of the beautiful lights in Tokyo at night. The palette does not comes with any mini brush or sponge. The design of this palette is just simple and practical.

The Color & Texture:

This palette has a beautiful combination of 6 neutrals eyeshadow shades. The colors are mostly shimmery  but the darkest brown is a matte shade. The palette consist of a matte brown shade, a shimmery dark chocolate brown, a shimmery champagne pink, a shimmery soft woody brown, a glittery gold and a glittery white shade. The shade

The texture of the eyeshadow is very soft. There’s a minimal amount of fallout which doesn’t really annoys me. I really like the softness of these eyeshadow. The feeling of swiping my finger on this eyeshadow pan is like touching a velvet pouch :) No, I am not kidding! This eyeshadow is REALLY SOFT!  It is also very buttery and smooth. The pigmentation of this eyeshadow varies among the shades. The glittery shades are leaning more towards sheer. The rest of the colors have great pigmentation; the color shows up even in just one swipe.

Swatches

As you can see, the shades are so beautiful. They are nicely pigmented, buttery and super smooth. I have lots of neutral eyeshadow palettes on my drawers, but I dare to say that this would be one of my all time favorite! The packaging looks so cute yet not too big for my make up pouch. I can bring this on my every day make up bag for my day and night eye look :)

 

Final Thought:

To sum everything up, I just can say that I am totally in love with this eyeshadow palette. I know it might me difficult for many of you who wants to get this eyeshadow. I hope that this eyeshadow is still available on Singapore Airline/Cathay Pacific Inflight Magazine. If you know anybody is travelling with these airline, you might want to ask them to get this for you :)
