Estee Lauder Signature Silky Powder Blush – 14 Rose Nuance

Today I present this review to all of you. This is my first ever Estee Lauder blush. I am always very reluctant to purchase anything from Estee Lauder. I just don’t really like the packaging and the logo. However after looking at Eileen’s post from  PrettySeaEagle , I immediately fall in love with this. I saw this blush in Changi Airport during my trip to Indonesia last month and I grabbed this without any second thought.

I believe there are few shades for this blush but the one I picked is Rose Nuance. Correct me if I am wrong here but I think this blush has the pinkest shade among all the blush in this range.

As you can see, this blush is very beautiful. I love the color gradation in this pan that tells me I can use this blush as both highlighter and blush. The packaging is fine, it’s a standard Estee Lauder packaging. This case is made from plastic which kinda disappoints me, I would  be much happier if the case is made from metal. I don’t mind having a heavy metal case as long as it looks pretty. Despite the material made for this case, I am still loving this blush.

This blush produce semi matte finish. If you have been reading memoiselle, Meryl usually prefers blush thats contain shimmer. Although this blush does not contain any shimmer, I am still in love with this blush. It’s a good thing having a blush that’s a bit different with most of my blushes. As you can see, the color on the left is very pale, I like to use this color after I finished applying my blush. The color on the right side looks a bit too pink for my liking, hence I always end up swiping in the middle of this pan.

Final thought:

I am pretty satisfied with my purchase. The color gradation in this pan is too pretty to be missed. The color pigmentation is fine, it’s not too creamy and this blush produces a fine natural finish. Although I would much prefer this blush to be in a metal case, I still don’t have any complain over this product. As this product is my first purchase from Estee Lauder, I do not have any comparison to be made of.

Thank you for reading and leave me a comment of what you think of this product :)

FOTD: Chanel Sable-Émouvant Eyeshadow Duo & Bronzing Powder in Sable Beige

Hi everyone!

In my latest haul, I picked up few things from Chanel Summer 2012 which are the duo eyeshadow and Chanel bronzing powder in Sable Beige. Seems like everyone in blogosphere adore the duo eyeshadow. And yes count me in! the texture is just lovely and the neutral shade, I was totally sold. The other item I bought is Chanel bronzer in Sable Beige, this item didn’t make it to the wish list in the first place but I bought it anyway.

Swatches of Chanel Sable-Émouvant Eyeshadow Duo, both shades are very pigmented especially the brown one.

I am very happy with the eyeshadow and also the bronzing powder, I haven’t got much time to play around with them until few days ago. As usual apply moisturizer, you don’t want to apply make up on dry skin then Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation which my latest foundation from Chanel then I applied Burberry concealer (forgot to included in the picture) under my eyes to hide my dark and puffy eyes then set it with loose powder. For the eyes I applied the light color over my eyelids a bit over the crease then apply the darker color from outer eyelid halfway through, blend it with finger or blender blush, then use eyeliner. I used liquid eyeliner from dolly wink which again left out from the picture Sorry! I used false lashes in this FOTD with D-Up lashes glue which I found much better than Duo. For cheeks, I apply bronzer in my upper cheeks then swipe a bit of blush. And last but not least a touch of lipgloss.

Overall, can’t go wrong with neutral shades, hope you like it like I do. Have a good week :)

Lunasol Summer 2012 Glowing Powder Cheeks In EX 03 Pure Coral Pink

Summer make up products are flooded everywhere and we are starting to take a peek of fall 2012 products. However there’s still one product that caught my attention and successfully lured me to get this.Recently I have falling in love with Lunasol; the brand has a good range of eye make up palette and blushes.

Initially I did not intend to buy this blush but after swatching it on my arm, I can feel that buttery smooth texture which I love. I talked to Monica about Lunasol blush and she agreed that Lunasol blush is great. Check out her review on Lunasol Spring 2012 blush  which she likes a lot :). This blush is retailing at S$60. I had S$50 Takashimaya voucher so in the end I only paid S$10, yay such a steal :D

Firstly, let’s talk about the texture of this blush. The reason why I am falling in love a lot about this blush is mainly because of the texture. It’s buttery smooth and it has the micro shimmer which makes this blush very beautiful. When I swept my finger on this pan of blush, I can feel how smooth this blush is. The pigmentation was awesome; I swept my finger once and I can see the color transfered smoothly. There was some fallouts but it’s not a problem for me since this is a blush.

Another thing that I love from this blush is the color. This blush contains two colors; pink and coral. This gives me choice to choose the pink or the coral or even mix them together to get the color that I want. I agree with the gorgeous Joey from Joey’s Space that this blush gives me a choice to match my cheek color with my lip color. In the pictures below, you can see the blush pan under direct sunlight and indoor lighting. In the direct sunlight, you can clearly see the micro glitter sparkles that makes this blush so beautiful.

In the pictures below, I did some swatch to show how you can choose to use this blush. When blended together, the color leans more towards pink. I love all 3 colors swatched below, it’s so wearable :)

This blush comes with a small brush that’s can be used while travelling. Well I personally don’t really use the brush given by any make up that I purchased. They’re usually too small and not fluffy enough. One major downside of this blush is the packaging. It’s so sad to see such a pretty blush packed in this pan. I hope the packaging could be improved. For a $60 product, I think this packaging doesn’t worth the price. The cover of the blush doesn’t fit much hence the product could fall off easily. Luckily Lunasol provides a rubber band to tighten it together; however I still think that Lunasol could improve the packaging.

Final Thought:

Despite the poor packaging, I still love this blush a lot. The texture is buttery smooth and the color looks unbelievably glowy on my skin. Moreover I love the duo colors on the pan, I can choose whichever color I want to use. If you don’t mind the packaging, this product is a must have item :)

Thank you for reading

As usual, STRIP and Browhaus are always providing an excellent service. I have written my previous experience with Strip in Mandarin Gallery and Browhaus in Paragon . In this post I am going to share with you my experience with Strip and Browhaus in Tampines 1.

I did some eyebrow grooming service* and Brazilian wax there. The brow grooming* service was excellent; in fact I am loving the result more than what I had in Paragon. I love to see my brow shape, it’s very neat and clean looking. I chose thick looking design brow. Usually I always thicken my brow with eyebrow pencil but after this service, I only thicken my brow on weekends or when I am having dinner.

I also had a brazilian wax service there. It was my first ever professionally done brazilian wax and I was excited (happy and nervous :p). I was nervous that Brazilian wax was going to be very painful. Since Brazilian wax is done on a very sensitive area, I am very choosy over the place where I shall do this. I am confident with Strip service and hence I decided to try this service.

The brazilian wax takes about 20-30 minutes. Honestly it was painful but it’s bearable. It doesn’t feel good at first 5 minutes but after that I am starting to get used to it. One thing I like most about Strip is the hygienic reason. The therapist always change the stick used to take the wax. I am very particular for hygienic reason and I am glad that Strip takes care is this issue very well :). The result was great; I am feeling clean and ready for a bikini for the weekend :)

and finally a great news from STRIP and Browhaus :

STRIP will offer 50% off any waxing services and BROWHAUS will offer 50% off any Brow Grooming services (not including all semi permanent treatments) for first time customers to their Tampines 1 outlet for the month of July.
