Review & Swatch of Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick

I was sent a couple of new Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick range to try. As a lipstick hoarder, I am definitely excited because I have been trying out a couple of their products in the past and so far they are to my liking!

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick comes in black sturdy luxury looking packing.

I like the clear top window on the lipstick case making my life easier by looking at the shades at a snap rather than opening one by one to pick the colour, whether it’s in a cluttered handbag or makeup drawer. 

Although this is a gel semi shine lipstick, this product promises to deliver full-coverage to your lips by having gel microsphere technology which can offer rich, stay-true colour that delivers long-lasting wear – without leaving lips looking or feeling dry. 

What so unique about this Ultrafine silica microspheres technology is that it will lock in the lipstick colour on the lips making it more long lasting. Yet it’s in lightweight gel formula that glides on smoothly and cushions lips, leaving them feeling soft and supple with ingredients such as sunflower seed oil and jojoba butter, to help condition lips while. In essence this Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick delivers long-lasting wear without drying lips.
I was given 3 different Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick shades to try

Here are how the swatches look like with just 1 swipe, the colour payoff is highly pigmented. Here I will try out one by one the colour to show how it appear on my lip.

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick in Luminous Lilac shade is a very shimmery lilac pink purplish that leaves my lips pop with luminous shine. The lightweight gel formula lipstick glides on smoothly and cushions lips, leaving my lips feeling soft and supple.

And this shade is a sweet shade to brighten up my look!

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick in Mod Pink shade although the name has the word pink but the shade is more towards coral-ish pink colour.

This is a great subtle shade for everyday look and this is the shade that will suits for all skin tone for all occasions.

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick in Scarlet Red is my favourite shade of all. Although the red shade looks darker on tube, upon application this shade reveals a beautiful bloody red shade. What I like about this lipstick is that it gives a really intense colour payoff, the full coverage finishing has a long lasting effect that don’t dry up my lips.

Red is love! Red is bold!
This is the perfect must haves lip colour to steal the limelight at the event you are attending.

And I would highly recommend you to try Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick if you are:-

  • craving for an intense, long-lasting lip color. 
  • prefer full coverage lipstick that won’t leave your lips looking or feeling dry

Mary Kay Gel Semi Shine Lipstick is sold at RM 55 each and for more details contact Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant today 03-77117500.

Swatch & Review of Laneige x Lucky Chouette Collection

The LANEIGE MEETS FASHION project is an annual collaboration between LANEIGE and trendsetting fashion designers. LANEIGE MEETS FASHION blends fashion and beauty, presenting them as one look to create a new trend of ‘fashionable beauty’. With this initiative, LANEIGE offers new limited edition beauty products for a fashionable look. 

Now in its third year, the 2016 series of LANEIGE MEETS FASHION is in collaboration with Lucky Chouette, the second line from Korean fashion brand Jardin de Chouette. The brand has been growing dramatically over the last three years and is adored by Korean girl members, celebrities and influencers.

Presenting to you the Limited Edition LANEIGE x Lucky Chouette Collection where it features chic owl-themed designs exclusively for the new LANEIGE Serum Drop Tint, BB Cushion and Multi-Colour Palette.

Introducing this 2 owl character i.e chouettes which is used as the main design in the limited edition LANEIGE x Lucky Chouette beauty products. 

Bella Chouette, a gorgeous pink owl, exudes charm with her deep double eyelids and plump lips. She is eloquent, confident, enthusiastic and is not afraid to speak her mind. 

Vely Chouette is a lovely, blushing blue owl that is shy and introverted. She has clear, shiny eyes that can melt anyone’s heart. 

So I did a personally test to see which makeup look should I do? No surprise that I am a Bella Chouette because I live the motto of "I do what I like like what I do" As you scroll down to the end, I will show you my Bella Chouette makeup look.

One of the best seller product Laneige BB Cushion SPF 50+++

Both Laneige BB Cushion for Whitening and Pore Control BB Cushion underwent a facelift and reformulation earlier this year. Hence the packaging here is merely a limited edition but the formulation is still the same.

Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50+ PA+++ (RM159) - pink packaging
Brightens skin with Dual Whitening care and provides the ultimate bright, clear skin. The new formulation keeps skin moisturized with no darkening all day long, complete with a powerful UV protection of SPF50+ PA+++.

Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF 50+ PA+++ (RM159) - black packaging
Keeps skin looking fresh and feel moisturized for long hours with its two- step oil control system. The new formulation keeps skin matte for hours without dryness and the feeling as if nothing is applied on the skin! Pore control maximizes the sweat-resistant effect so that the product stays on all day and provides complete protection with SPF50+ PA+++.

As I have dry & dull looking skin, I got the Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50+ PA+++ . The last time I reviewed in my blog was their old formula BB Cushion (here). 

I'm pretty excited to try out this new formulation as I have heard a lot of positive review about it. Well finally I have a chance to give it a try. 

Tip to apply BB cushion is to dab lightly and repeat the dabbing movement to build up the coverage. 

Here is a before & after picture using Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50+ PA+++. Imperfection seems to be perfectly covered without the use of concealer. Face looks instantly brighten and even up!

Newly introduced, Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint (RM75) which will be permanent part of the LANEIGE lip colour range.

This new Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint has 4 things to offer:-

1) Serum Tint that blends seamlessly with the lips

Serum Drop Tint formulated with an oil serum, the tint is designed to provide a wealth of essence to the lips. Its Berry Mix Complex™, rich in vitamin C and anti-oxidants keeps the lips smooth and supple while also giving off a vivid colour on the lips. 

Moisture Wrap™ with its wrapping technology, keeps skin moisturized all day through a network of hyaluronic minerals packed with skin purifying ingredients. To finish it off, a highly viscous paste is added for its moisture retaining and preserving power on the lips. 

2) A tinting upgrade that provides crystal clear gloss and rich colour
Oil and water soluble pigments are optimized for layers of moistures, providing rich colour and enhancing tinting effect, creating a super glossy oil for a vibrant and healthy look on the lips.

3) Moisturising, liquid-type serum oil tint
The combination of oil and a water type tint provides the best emulsion creating the serum drop tint. This mixture provides a texture that seamlessly blends into the skin to give a comfortable, long-lasting and refreshing finish with intense coloration. 

4) A triangle-shaped applicator designed especially for oil tint texture
Unlike a regular water drop tint applicator, the new serum drop tint applicator is specially designed with a hole in the middle of the tip to hold an ample amount of product. The triangle- shaped edge tip helps fill in the lips with colour from the inside. There are a total of 10 shades. It also comes with a Limited Edition packaging incorporating Lucky Chouette’s exclusively designed owls.

 I was given 2 shades to bring home to try. 

Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint in Bite Me is a burgundy red lips.If you realised the colour is darker on the tube but looks not too dark on the lips. 

Laneige X Lucky Chouette Serum Drop Tint in Urban Coral looks hot pink on the tube but looks more sweet pink on my lips. I love this shade because it flatters my skin tone and it's easy to pair with any eye makeup from day to night!

This tinted lip colour is really easy to apply and blend. It does not feel drying at all on my lips and I guess the serum which has the same ingredient with their Lip Sleeping Mask is helping! Unfortunately for me the colour does not really stay as it will be gone after a meal and reapplication is needed. Oh before I forgot, this Serum Drop Tint has a mild sweet fragrance which is quite pleasant. 
Laneige Multi-Colour Palette (RM120) is designed with the charm of Bella Chouette and the lovely shyness of Vely Chouette, the Laneige Multi Shadow double-ups as an eyeshadow and multi-use palette that gives off a soft, shimmer highlighting effect.

Which is your favourite from Limited Edition LANEIGE x Lucky Chouette Collection? I like the Serum Drop Tint in Urban Coral and I can't deny I really like this cute pink packaging.

Review & Tutorial : Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact transform Day to Night Spring Makeup Look

Not sure if you realised two days ago was the first day of spring for 2016. Besides winter, I love to travel during spring because there is something undeniably inspiring about warm sunshine and fresh flowers, beautiful blooms and lush greens.

And I just received this pretty palette from Mary Kay at my doorstep which is just in time for spring! Mary Kay launched their limited edition Into the Garden Collection this spring with assortment of garden-inspired beauty must-haves developed in collaboration with Brazilian born fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi which perfectly captures fashion’s current fascination with florals. 

Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact is the all-in-one mirrored compact features four garden-inspired eye shadows and three ultrasheer lip glosses for endless color possibilities.

A close up look at the colour. So beautiful right?

My first thought when I saw the colour is I love the colour combination of the eye shadow which is easily suits all colour skin tone to create day to night makeup. And the lip colour combination is pretty has three very wearable colours to suits the eye shadow makeup.

Not forgetting the pretty season’s garden print on the casing which was made from hard cardboard material which would be great for travelling because it will be lighter than my usual metal casing.

As mentioned eye colours has a good combination of lighter & darker shade tone for me to blend to create day makeup to night makeup look easily.

Swatch of Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact. 

Colours are really pigmented, smooth and easy to pick up really well with one swipe. And out of the four colours, three of them (namely Natural Taupe, Pink and Violet) has a little bit shimmering effect. 

I know some people are not into shimmering eye colour because they felt it's not easy to blend and looks a little bit too much. I think they key in using shimmer eye colour is the blending and always remember less is more! I actually put on shimmering eye colour daily because I felt it enhance my eyes and gives that extra "oomph" focus on my eyes!

Tutorial how to transform from day makeup to night makeup look using Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact to create my spring makeup look this season! 

Day look : I applied Natural Taupe colour lightly all over my eyelid  to brighten up the eyes. Next I took a little bit of Pink colour and apply from the centre eyelid towards the inner corners of the eyes. After I'm done, I put on Violet colour and blend from outer corner of my eyes to the inner corner of my eyes,  carefully blending in the color to obscure the borders between the shades. Don't forget to take a little bit of Natural Taupe colour and apply at the browbone as a highlighter.

Night look : Using the Day Look I have created, I top up darker shade Plum Brown and apply along the upper lash lines, again applying more color at the outer corners and slowly blend towards the centre of the eyes to create the smokey eyes look.

After putting on eye colour, I line the upper lash lines with black eyeliner before finishing it up with my favourite mascara. 

Honestly I think this eye colours in this palette are great for everyday use because colours are really sweet and easy to play around and would be great benefit to beginners and to bring for travelling (because it's really light!).

And pink and violet are actually my sort of colours combination I wear quite often actually ... but in my case I have to match different palette to get this colour combination before having this palette colour combination in one palette. I personally think Pink and Violet are really a nice colour combination to give the sweet and romantic eyes makeup look, ah perfect to go for a date with this to mesmerize your sweetheart!

Next move to lip colour in Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact ; Nude, Pink & Coral lip gloss.

Swatch of Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact lip gloss colour.

Although the lip colour looks really pigmented on the packaging but when I swatch it it's pretty sheer... after all it does comply with its ultra sheer lip gloss formulation. 

Among the 3 lip gloss colour, I only use Coral most of the time because Nude lip colour doesn't really make much difference on my lips (because of my pinkish natural lip colour) and Pink looks too frosty on me. 

I would really love if there is a red lip colour because that's my favourite shade for lip colour!

But then again colour are really personally preference and I usually prefer darker or brighter lip colour shade because of my natural pinkish shade.

Which shade do you like the most among this 3 colours?

Although this is a lip gloss colour but it has some moisturizing effect to keep the lips hydrated and lips not feeling sticky after application, leaving the lips looking smooth and healthy. However the staying power only last me few hours with light meal in between.

This is my final spring makeup look I have created using Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact. 

Ah...What do you think? Pass or not ? 

I think I'm ready for a spring picnic if I put on my cute floral hairband and dress! 

So if you are the kind who loves all in one colours in one palette, I think you can consider Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact because all the colours are simply wearable!  

Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact is currently selling at RM115.

Kiss Me 10th Anniversary Roadshow

Last weekend Kiss Me celebrated their 10th anniversary roadshow in Publika. Being a fan of Kiss Me, I decided to drop by to check out after having lunch at my favourite lunch place Go Noodle because I remembered seeing that there are lots of promotions going on for Kiss Me products and there will be LIVE Make-Up show by a Japanese make up artist.

So I went around to check out some Kiss Me makeup and found they have recently launched some new makeup products!  

Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Eye Designer Eye Shadow Liner (RM39.90) that can works as eye liner and eyes shadow by blending with our finger. 

Comes in 2 shade ; Hazel Brown and Shiny Gold.

Kiss Me Make Jewelry Eye Colour (RM49.90) comes with 4 shades. The texture is very fine and shimmering. The colours are really nice and suits all skin tone. 

 Swatch of Kiss Me Make Jewelry Eye Colour

 These are the rest of the newly launched products are;

Kiss Me Heroine Make Lasting Base Mat Keep (RM39.90)

Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner & Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Perfect Liquid Eyeliner (RM49.90 each) - not exactly new product but they have have new packaging!  

So when there is makeup to play for free, girls will take opportunity to try out! Some of fans managed to book slot to do makeover but I just try it on my own.. later I showed you all the outcome of my look with Kiss Me products ya :)

The real reason why I'm there for the roadshow is to watch live makeup demonstration by Sayuri Igarashi a makeup artist flown all the way from Japan besides checking out Kiss Me makeup range! I remembered I saw her in one of the previous Kiss Me roadshow back in 2012. 

 Sayuri is really friendly and provide lots of helpful tips during demonstration.

 As you can see , she is using Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Eye Designer Eye Shadow Liner and drew an inward V shape at the corner of the eyes before she starts to blend that evenly.

 After that she drew a thin line close to the eyelashes using the shadow liner before layering it with Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner.

 Love how Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Eye Designer Eye Shadow Liner is so easy to blend. Model's eyes makeup by Sayuri is so pretty! 

 And Sayuri Igarashi demostrated the latest makeup trend from Japan, where now in Japan girls put their blusher just below their eye bag. 

The before & after makeup by Sayuri Igarashi. Love how the model makeup looks natural and pretty.

 Sayuri also shared with us that compared to year 2013 and 2014, the makeup trend this year in Japan is to looking natural and no makeup look!

Me & Sayuri Igarashi! So happy to meet her back after so many years!

Here is my makeup looks using Kiss Me products <3 I love the Kiss Me Make Jewelry Eye Colour eyehadow in Pink Amethyst very much!
