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.

THREE Cosmetics Malaysia is now in Pavilion KL! Picture and Swatch of THREE Sakuraism Season 2016 Collection

THREE Cosmetics opened their first outlet in Malaysia in Pavilion Shopping Mall, Kuala Lumpur! THREE is also an organic beauty brand from Japan where all their organic ingredients certified by Ecocert. They used essential oils and other plant-based ingredients on their products.  In fact I have actually dropped by their counter back in Isetan Shinjuku Tokyo to try their base makeup. Honestly their products are not cheap to start with, after all it's a Japanese organic brand that has Ecocert.

Since they are in Malaysia , I dropped by over the weekend to check out their THREE Sakuraism 2016 Spring Limited Edition Collection in Pavilion KL. The first thing that caught my eyes was the blusher! 


"THREE Sakuraism 2016 Season Collection" is launched accordance with the flowering of the cherry blossoms of the Japanese archipelago, and blossomed from towards the south. 

Haven't done this for some time, well I'm going to share the swatch of THREE Sakuraism 2016 Spring Collection which I took with my mobile phone. Hope the quality justifying the colours :) If you see later all the names in their collect some sort use the word Sakura or Sakuraim which this range being inspired.

THREE Whisper Gloss For Eye priced at RM173
Delicate light and nuance laden color of the veil, to dwell a glossy shine and the three-dimensional depth to the eyes, brings the spring seems to life feeling. 

Ingredients : Olive oil , meadowfoam oil tea seed oil Argan oil, jojoba oil ,Evening primrose oil , rosehip oil, Shea Butter, beeswax 

THREE Shimmering Lip Jam priced at RM157

THREE Whisper Gloss For Eye (RM173)

S01 Sakuraism Whisper - Bloom mode opulence to the eyes, smoky baby pink. 

S02 Sakuraism Blink - Chic haze is to brighten up the look, sophistication of Grayish Coral.

These are easy to spread glossy eyeshadow. It's pigmented but can be build if you want to create intensity like the colour the model had.

 THREE Shimmering Lip Jam (RM157)

S01 Sakuraism Sweet - bloomed to direct a smile to the sun, sweet pink shine in blue sky.

S02 Sakuraism Spirit - And sunrise sky dyed in vivid, the water surface of the petals Sensual pink

S03 Sakuraism Scent - As melt together is the setting sun and the cherry tree, milky purple mystique has been pulled out

These lipgloss colours are really pretty and  my favourite would be Sakuraism Spirit because it has the cherry sakura colours follow by Sakuraism Scent. It's quite sheer but can be build  by layering. Glossy finishing and not sticky!

THREE Cheeky Chic Blush priced at RM157

Decorate the cheek with good color and clarity of the balance, powder cheek that were transferred to color the feelings of spring. In would likely as smooth texture melts and touch, soft cheeks, and to the upper respiratory to narrate the arrival of spring. 

Ingredients : Tea seed oil Argan oil,  jojoba oil,  Evening primrose oil, rosehip oil, Shea Butter, beeswax

  THREE Cheeky Chic Blush priced (RM157)

S01 Sakuraism Rising - Of elation that cherry tree was blooming, bright cherry pink transparent to pure.

S02 Sakuraism Awakening - Feel the happiness in the spring of warmth, gentle flower bloom blooming Coral.

My pick would be Sakuraism Rising because my skin tone looks better in pink than coral. The texture of the blusher is pretty fine but it's semi matte and looks pretty natural. 
 THREE Nail Polish for Sakuraism Collection 2016 priced at RM95

Dance and spring of view of the cherry blossoms that spread to the fingertips While changing the impression in various scenes, representing the figure of a cherry tree burning in the hearts of people the moment, the nuances full of nail polish. Enjoy recoating or multi-colored in fully, it is a clear color.

  THREE Nail Polish for Sakuraism Collection 2016 (RM95)

S01 Moment of Sakuraism - Representation of the cherry tree of loveliness and heart admire it, innocent cherry pink.

S02 Sakuraism Sky - The petals will be sucked into the sky and image, dusty cherry Sky.

S03 Dancing with Petals - The image of a petal that run around freely in the spring, Airy cherry shower.

S04 In the Arms of Night - Were cut views of Hanafubuki spread in the night sky, brilliant fluttering cherry black.

Although this nail polish dry up pretty fast and colours like Dancing with Petals are pretty but this is really expensive which I don't think can justifying the price! What do you think?

Besides makeup products, there are bodycare under this THREE Sakuraism Season 2016 Collection such as :-
Sakuraism Aroma Skin Soap - RM210
Sakuraism Aroma Bath Serum - RM314 
Sakuraism Aroma Hand Cream - RM157

I'm actually quite shock at the pricing of the soap & bath serum...although it's organic and probably smells good because of Sakura flower, I wonder what so unique what this that justify the price. 

Which are your favourite product you want to try from this THREE Sakuraism Season 2016 Collection ? 

For me I would like to  Sakuraism Spirit lip gloss, Sakuraism Rising blusher, Dancing with the petals nail polish and Sakuraism Aroma Bath Serum ( I haven't try any product that carry the name bath serum.... sounds very moisturising like that!)

Review & Swatches : Maybelline New York Lip Polish by Color Sensational - A must pick up for lips lover!

Before Maybelline New York officially launched the new Lip Polish by Color Sensational I had checked them on Watsons on December last year. I went home to google and found out that it was named Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lip Color in some countries like USA.

In Malaysia we have only 10 shades compared to oversea they had 20 shades. Comes in pocket friendly size, this Maybelline New York Lip Polish plastic packaging does not look cheap but as nice as those in beauty counter brand. 

From the look of the packaging you might be thinking this is just another lipstick but it's NOT. Maybelline New York Lip Polish is a 3 in 1 potion , combining a balm, lipstick and gloss. 

It claims that it has a perfect blend of sweet and sensual, the smooth, lightweight formula of Lip Polish delivers a moisturizing liquuid balm that prep lips for intensely rich color. 

Here I'm going to share with you the swatch and a detail review of Maybelline New York Lip Polish Glam 3, Pop 5 and Glam 6 shade.

One layer of swatch of Maybelline New York Lip Polish Glam 3, Pop 5 and Glam 6 shade. The colour is so pigmented! The magic lies in a formula that combines the ingredients found in a conditioning balm with rich, pure pigments and a high gloss topcoat.

The texture of Maybelline Lip Polish by Color Sensational Lip Color is creamy but NOT STICKY! Now I remembered that how I don't usually like lip gloss because its usually sticky and not comfortable to wear. 

Also Maybelline New York Lip Polish is unscented and compare to the review I read on Maybelline Color Elixir which has creme brulee scent. Personally I do not like my lip product to have any scent so was glad to find that our formula is a little bit different from those in USA.

The applicator wand is quite unique, from the front it looks like a leaf shape and it can bendable up to 180 degree. A dose of creamy balm cling

I quite like their bristle as it picks up the product nicely and very easy to apply it smoothly on my lips. For darker shade, need a little more technique though. 

Maybelline New York Lip Polish Glam 3 review -I t's  bright orange colour with micro shimmer. 

Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 3 on my lips

I applied 1 layer of Maybelline New York Polish Glam 3 and it was good enough. Super shiny and spot the micro shimmer on my lips.

Out of the 3 shades that I would be reviewing,  Maybelline New York Polish Glam 3 is the easiest to carry and it would match any skin tone and any ocassion. And if you wanted to give Maybelline New York Lip Polish a try, this is one shade I would definitely recommend!

Maybelline New York Lip Polish Pop 5 review - sweet pink shade 

Maybelline Lip Polish Pop 5 on my lips

I applied 1 layer of Maybelline New York Polish Pop 5 and it was good enough. If you notice this has no shimmer. 

Maybelline Lip Polish Pop 5 shade is very sweet and I feel young wearing them.

 Maybelline New York Polish Glam 6 review - is a deep berry shade 

 Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 6 on my lips

This colour needs a little bit effort in applying effort in applying as among all other shades this is the most pigmented one. No shimmer spotted here too.

I don't usually fancy shade like this as I feel kinda a little mature/old wearing them. However with the right occasion and makeup (i.e light makeup on eyes) this shade is quite classy to carry. 

Maybelline Lip Polish does live up to the expectation that it does not make my lips drying. The color is smooth,  intense and captivating too! Generally the lighter shade of Maybelline Lip Polish such as Glam 3 and Pop 5 lasts for a few good hours before I need to re-apply them. And this 2 shades does not leave any stain on my lips. 

As you can see Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 6 shade is the most pigmented one among three. And after 10 hours of wearing, even though the gloss is gone but it would leave a very nice berry stain on my lips. Mind you, you can't remove this using warm water and proper lips makeup remover is needed here.  

Maybelline Lip Polish by Color Sensation is so far my favourite lip gloss and out of 3 shades here, I am carrying Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 3 in my handbag daily.

Which Maybelline Lip Polish shades do you prefer ? 

Maybelline Lip Polish by Color Sensational is selling in Malaysia for RM32.90 . In Malaysia we have a total of 10 shades. Maybelline is sold exclusively at all Watsons, Guardians, Sasa & Caring pharmacies. And ocassionally they will have 10-15% discount, so do keep a look for it. 

I think I'm going to pick out more shades to try because it's really affordable and live up to the expectations and raves that I have been hearing!
