Givenchy Terre Exotique in Moonlight Croisiere #5 Review

This summer, Givenchy releases Terre Exotique powder in Moonlight Croisiere. What I have with me today is no 5 which is an asia exclusive edition. The shade of this powder is much lighter compared to the no 3 which is often used more of a bronzer or sculpting powder.

It was a love at the first sight for me, I have been browsing and reading review for this powder and couldn’t bear to miss this. The powder has a very intricate design, it’s so beautiful that it took me for few days to admire this before I decided to swirl my brush into it.

If you are wondering about the size of this powder, the size is big and it has a lot of products. It has 16g/56oz of product. It comes in a black acrylic casing with bronze lining at the corner. I was actually expecting that there’s a velvetty pouch for this powder but there’s no brush or velvet pouch provided.

As you can see in the swatch below, the powder gives a healthy glow. The shade is not too far off from my natural skin tone, so I can wear it all over my face or as a highlighting powder on my cheek bone. In real life, you shall be able to see light shimmer – the shimmers are very fine that it won’t create a shimmery look on your face.

IMG_9697.jpg I have tried using few brushes to apply this product. I tried using my Hakuhodo S104 (or J104) in swirling motion, it picked up too much product for my liking. Then I also tried using J110 blush brush and I also I find that it’s a bit too dense. I finally tried Hakuhodo S100, and so far I feel like this brush is suitable to give me the glow I like. I usually dab my S100 lightly, and apply it all over my face. The result is the healthy glow from this Terre Exotique.

In this picture, I applied Terre Exotique on my high cheekbone and on my browbone. I hope you can see the glow this powder gives on my face.

This is retailing at SGD 105, my friend helped me to get this from Metro Paragon. This is one of the prettiest powder I have. If you’re  a fan of beautiful design, you need to have this! The intricate design and the glow it provides is just gorgeous. This is a must have for me :)

Tell me what you think of this if you have tried it :)

Guerlain BB Hydra Aqua Serum

IMG_9640.jpg

 

When I heard that Guerlain is releasing a new BB Cream, I became so excited to know more and to try the product. This BB Hydra Aqua Serum is part of Guerlain’s Super Aqua Serum which emphasizes so much of hydrating the skin.

Guerlain BB Hydra Aqua Serum comes in a squeezable long tube. There’s nothing fanciful about the packaging; it looks simple an practical. There are two shades available – light and medium. Mine is light.

The initial reaction I have when I first try it is the lightness of the bb cream texture. It feels very light in texture and it makes me feel like i am not wearing anything on my face. I have tried and used this BB cream for couple of times and I have found that the coverage of this BB cream is very light. This bb cream is also packed with SPF 25  to protect our skin from the UV rays.

On my swatch here, you can see that the coverage of BB hydra is light but you can still see the difference of my skin with and without the bb cream.

I have tried several ways to apply this bb cream but what I find most useful is to put the bb cream all over my face with my finger lightly and dab it with my finger. In this way, I feel like the bb cream is applied more evenly. The finish of the bb cream is lumimous without being shiny.

Comparing to the Lingerie de Peau BB Cream, Hydra Aqua Serum BB Cream has a much lighter coverage. The size of the tube is similar but lingerie de peau tube comes with a pump. Both products carry a signature Guerlain scent but Hydra Aqua Serum has a lighter scent compared to Lingerie de Peau.

I would recommend this BB cream for any one of you who prefers a light texture bb cream with light coverage for daily use. After using this for many times, I like this best when I am having this on my outdoor activities; when I am exposed to the sun and when light make up is the thing I need. Most of the time, I will still prefer lingerie de peau bb cream for its coverage and finish.

Bellabox June Haul of Fame Review

 

 

IMG_9681.jpg

 

IMG_9714.jpgHello hello! It’s the end of June and I know that it might be late for me to post on the June Bellabox, but since this is my first Bellabox, let me share with you on what I think of the goodies inside.

  • Anna Suit Secret Wish EDT – I love the happy and playful scent of this EDT. The scent of the perfume makes me feel younger ;)
  • Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment – this is a yay product for me! One of the star product of June Bellabox! It is packed with SPF which I love especially in thus sunny Singapore. It has a sheer rosy red shade which is suitable for everyday use for its moisturizing effect and its sheer color.
  • Laneige BB Cushion pore Control & Laneige 6-in-1 BB Cushion – I tried both in the counter and both have perfoming very well. I personally like the 6-in-1 BB Cushion better for its finish. Some people likes the pore control better for its coverage but for me personally, the 6-in-1 works better for me :)
  • Appelles Rosemary Body Bar – I am not a big fan of soap bars but the scent is actually quite appealing. I don’t mind giving this a try :)
  • Belif has quite a multiple product in June Bellabox; Peat Miracle Revital Cream – This is a revitalising cream which stimulates skin to restore skin to its natural turnover rate for a younger looking complexion. This retails for $84 for the 50ml. The sample given here is in a tube which gives quite a generous amount of sample. The box also comes with Miracle Revital Eye Cream and Miracle Revital Serum concentrate. These products are meant for younger looking complexion.
  • La Fresh Eco Wipe – a fuss free make up remover especially when you are travelling.

That’s all from me! Hope you’re enjoying your June Bellabox- Haul of Fame ;)

Nuxe White Brightening Purifying Foam

I was recently introduced to this range of Nuxe Skincare product. Nuxe White range is targeting at especially Asian Women who are constantly looking for products which provides radiance, whitening and moisturising.

Nuxe White innovation focuses on whiteness with no dark spots, Rosy Luminosity and perfect moisturising. For whitening and elimination of dark spots,

In this post, I’d like to specifically put my thoughts on the facial foam. Nuxe White Brightening Purifying Foam. This product focuses on brightening and moisturising. For brightening, this is packed with stargazer Lily, white crocus and vitamin C. For that moisturising effect, Nuxe added Cherry Blossom to its ingredients.

My skin condition is a combination skin, but on some days my cheek area can be very dry that it feels itchy on air conditioed room. I have tried several facial wash for dry skin and for combination skin but most of them are drying or too creamy for my liking.

IMG_9650.jpg

Nuxe White Brightening Purifying Foam comes in a squeezable tube in a white jelly like texture. The smell of this face cleanser is quite noticeable. The flowery scent lingers and stays for a while after cleansing my face. I am not a big fan of the scent because it’s a bit too heavy for my liking. On the other note, I really like the texture and how it feels on my skin.

After washing my face with this cleanser, I don’t feel any itchyness or dryness on my skin. My skin feels clean and moisturised, even for the t-zone area. I use this cleanser day and night after I removed my make up.

IMG_9652.jpg

Overall, I am liking this product for its performance in cleansing my face. It cleanse my face thoroughly without leaving any dry feeling. The only thing that distracts me is the scent of the product; it’s slightly too heavy for my liking but it doesn’t stop me from using it.

Chanel Illusion d’Ombres in Utopia & New Moon

 

IMG_9670

 

Chanel has released its Reflets d’Ete de Chanel Summer 2014 collection worldwide. In this collection, there are three illusion d’ombres being released for the collections; they are mirage, utopia and new moon. I picked up Utopia and New Moon as they’re limited editions; Mirage is a beautiful shade too but I decided to wait.

Initially Utopia did not really catch my attention when I saw the promo picture. But once I visited Chanel counter and swatching it, there’s no turning back. It’s a sparkly lilac shade with medium intensity of color. It’s a sparkly shade which I will use as a base or an eyeshadow on its own. I don’t think I have any similar shade of illusion d’Ombres that looks like Utopia.

IMG_9669.jpg

New Moon is a gorgeous sparkly bronze combined with purple. I seriously think that I don’t need more browns or bronze eyeshadow shade, but after looking at the beautiful sparkles, how could I ever resist such beautiful limited edition shade?

As some of you may know, Chanel Illusion d’Ombres range is one of my favorite product ranges all the time. I love how soft and bouncy the texture is. Not to mention the beautiful sparkles that Chanel never fails to bring. Utopia and New Moon have once again won my heart.

This is how Utopia and New Moon look on my eye. I like both shades – Utopia, with its shimmering lilac shade instantly brightens my eye look. New Moon on the other hand, creates more noticeable eye make up look because of the intensity of the shade itself.

Have you picked anything up from the collection?
