Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream

Kiehl’s recently launched a new product to combat wrinkle and pore. This was launched in May and I have tried the products for more than a month. So I guess it’s enough for me to write down what I think about Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream.




Firstly, let me tell you briefly about my skin. For your information, I am currently 24 years old and I have a normal skin type. My T-zone can sometimes be oily but the rest of my face is usually non oily. Our skin starts to lose its elasticity at the age of early to mid twenties. So this product is not only for people who starts to have wrinkles but also to young people who also wants to combat wrinkles which has not shown yet.

Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream is packed in a jar in a simple designed packaging. Jar packaging is good for me as I can make sure that the products will be used entirely. Some people dislike jar packaging due to its hygienic reason. I guess it’s up to each person to judge on this.





The texture of Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream quite thick but it is non sticky. The eye cream has an even more thicker consistency than the face cream. Both face cream and eye cream has no scent, so this is suitable for people who dislike smell in their skin care product. The eye cream is very thick in texture, and I don’t use it on day time as I find it takes too long to absorb into my skin. The face cream sets onto my skin after 30 seconds; this is fairly quick so it’s great for my day cream.


My verdict after using it for 6 weeks:

This product shows its result after I used it approximately for 4-5 weeks. This product is not the most hydrating moisturizer I have tried but this cream suits my needs for day cream. It’s moisturising enough for my day time needs and it’s non sticky. I don’t see any result for my pore problem but it helps my skin to look hydrated most of the time.


Thank you for reading.

Quick Review: Chanel Retractrable Kabuki Brush

Hi all,

I finally got myself my first Chanel brush. I have been wanting to buy a Chanel brush but none of their brushes attracts me because they’re expensive and the hair does not feel as soft as I expect it to be. However when I heard that Chanel is releasing a kabuki brush and after reading the review from Ommorphia Beauty Bar , I decided to get this brush.



So how does Chanel Retractable Kabuki Brush feels?

This brush is a dome shaped brush with a very dense hair. It feels super soft; how should I say it?  It is just very very soft. Is it comparable to the softness of Tom Ford brushes? Definitely yes. The hair is made of synthetic hair and it can be used for applying all over powder, blush and even helps to contour your face.






This brush is my first retractable brush which I can safely put in my make up bag. I don’t need to worry that the brush will get dirty or will change in shape because it is nicely protected by the brush cap. It is my go to touch up brush when I am not at home; I am using this to reapply my blush and bronzer. The density of this brush helps me to apply bronzer to sculpt my face. It also helps me to even blend my blush after reapplying it.



I have also washed my brush once. I did not take a picture of the brush afterwards. But I  can tell you that the brush doesn’t change in shape and the hair does not shed after washing. Because of its density, it took about 12 hours to be completely dry.

Final Thought:

Overall, I am madly in love with this brush for its softness and density. It’s just a pity that it comes in white colored hair, because I know eventually the color won’t look as white as what it looks like now. Nevertheless, I am still loving this brush a lot :)


Have you checked out this brush? What do you think of it?

Review: YSL City Palette Drive in Classy





A nod to the masters of Pop Art celebrated by Monsieur Saint Laurent and a tribute to New York City Street Art, the Pure Chromatics City Drive palettes feature an ultra chic, ultra contemporary graffiti design in a choice of black or fuchsia. These elegantly urban cases are an essential accessory for Autumn Winter 2013 / 2014.

City Drive Classy 

From the 127th floor of the Dubai tower to the roof of a Manhattan skyscraper, champagne, marble, concrete and steel set the tone for the Palette City Drive Classy. A harmony of natural yet always contemporary shades to release urban chic, by day or night.


YSL has just released their Palette City Drive for fall 2013. I am thrilled to receive this palette as the packaging looks edgy and modern. It comes in the usual YSL eyeshadow palette gold casing, but this time the cover of the palette has “YVES SAINT LAURENT” written on it. Since there is a prints on top of the casing, it is not prone to finger prints.



It is truly a right decision for YSL to name this palette as “Classy”. The color composition for this palette is classy, just like its name. It composed of three neutrals; dark brown, creamy white, sandy brown and a sparkly silver.

The eyeshadow in this palette can be used both wet and dry. The texture of this eyeshadow feels rather dry to me when I touch it on the pan. The color payoff when swatched dry is rather disappointing too. However you really need to see the difference it makes when I swatched it wet. The color payoff is so much better and it looks super gorgeous! I love the pigmentation when it is swatched wet. There’s no fall out from this eyeshadow. You can certainly feel that the eyeshadow feel so smooth when swatched wet.

In the swatches below, you can see the difference when this eyeshadow is swatched dry and wet.



Final Thought:

YSL City Palette Drive in Classy is great for both day and night look. You can create both natural and bold look with the shades available. I would recommend applying the eyeshadow wet; the color shows much better when it is applied wet.

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.


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.


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


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



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!
