Review: CLEAR COLOR CL105 Natural Brown Lens + mini haul

Today I'm going to make a review of my current favorite circle lens! finally, hehe...another natural brown colored circle lens. This review is sponsored by KPOP2.


 vial


 Clear color CL 105 circle lens. a VERY natural brown lens :)

EOTD ~ Above are my current signature eye make-up. I used Tony moly backstage eyeliner gel in brown. clinique mascara (1 coat only), and NYX eyeshadow (the peach one from NYX 78 eyeshadow collection S104), Etude House proof 10 eye primer.

Color & Design:  photo rat4x.png Love the color and design so very much! No wonder, I choose the lens myself so I know I'll definitely like it! The brown color is a sweet chocolate brown, it matches my natural eye color so well that no one would expect me wearing a lens. I also like its simple design, so pure and innocent! The print is not too pixelated, it's quite sharp imo, though you'll still notice the pixel if you examine it closely. but heck who'll notice that? :D

Comfort:  photo rat4.pngnothing to complain about. It might felt a little drying after awhile but that doesn't really bother me anyway.

Enlargement:  photo rat3.png being 14mm lens, it's normal that it gives me just a little enlargement. Perfect to go along with my current signature eye look which is also very natural looking.

Overall: photo rat4.png I like this pair! If you like natural style make-up, or "no make-up" make-up then you'll going to love this lens :)

Here's me wearing clear color CL 105, I look older and flat lately :( unedited yeah~


By the way, I got a mini haul (yesterday and today!) Let's take a look!

WET N WILD blush in pearlscent pink, lipgloss in seedless watermelon, and H2o proof liquid eyeliner in black! I'll try it today :) *so excited~

I just now I received this!!! this!!! a BABY~~! If you're an old follower of my blog then you'd prolly know what is this! ♥♥♥ Yeaayyy I'm dancing like a happy mango!

Hell yeaaaa it's another jar of MIZON all in one snail repair cream! I ordered this early in June and this baby finally arrived at mail today! I'm super super excited! It's like the best SNAIL cream I've ever tried, leaving SECRET KEY snail cream bites the dust! Read my previous review of Mizon all in one snail repair cream HERE.

I really recommend this snail cream! It doesn't leave a greasy/sticky feeling on skin, cure acne and blemishes, getting rid of skin troubles, scars, and acne marks. Has a great healing properties! Thanks Mizon :)))
My skin has never been as good as when I'm continuously using it! Thanks mizon, you'll always be my number one favorite skincare

Hehe... I think that's all for now! I have lots of thing to be reviewed. For upcoming review, it would be a review post if wishtrend's product, Wet n Wild, and maybe Etude House?

Gonna leave you with a goofy looking selca~
Toodles~♥

Review: Syahrini False Eyelashes Merak & Surya Kencana

Hi lovelies! Thanks for still reading my blog :)
Tonight (ewwww.... it's morning already 1:32 am) I'll be reviewing two falsies that I got from D'EYEKO. Yeaaah, one of them turned out to be my favorite! Hehe... Syahrini is Indonesian celeb and she's quite famous here ^-^ Her signature look is an extravagant eye make-up (and of course falsies). So yeah, these are the falsies she designed.

A bit about D'eyeko falsies:
All of D'EYEKO eyelashes are 100% handmade to exact specifications, with 100% sterilized human hair in black or hair-like fiber in colored lashes and a rigorous quality-control process ensures the highest standard of excellence in manufacturing and distribution. These are fine designer quality false eyelashes. Available in a variety of colors, shapes and densities. Our lashes are also trimmable to size, simple to apply and remove, and fully reusable.

(^ review will be up soon!)
Clinique Mascara

Sorry for posting up a huge photo of my eyes, lol. It's because I really like this falsies... hehe...

Syahrini falsies - MERAK


Verdict:
Well, merak is, a peacock. This might be inspired by how beautiful the peacock is. I didn't think I will like this falsies to this extent. At first I even thought that this would look weird on me. But upon wearing, it look surprisingly natural despite being a little bit extravagant. It’s made from 100% HUMAN HAIR! No wonder it felt so soft and light (even softer than Dolly Wink falsies I gues!). It’s not as cheap as the usual plastic falsies ($ 0.2-0.3 for a pair of lashes only), but the price isn’t bad at all, especially for its quality. It feels light on eyes, very light that I forgot that I'm wearing a falsies. 
MERAK is a build-in double falsies. For those who love to overlap their falsies, this might come in handy :) I wonder if they have a daily-wearable type of falsies with the same design (but minus the heavy wing). If such falsies exist then it would definitely be my HG!

 



Verdict: 
Unfortunately, this pair doesn't quite suit me. It looks too big on my small eyes. Yes, I have SMALL eyes, that's too bad haha.  The fibers feels more plasticy than MERAK. I wonder if this also made from natural sterilized human hair? because it does feel very plasticy. The design is TOO NEAT. The first thing I want from falsies is naturalness. So I'd prefer messy design, or at least it doesn't look too made up or neat like this. This is also a pair that you'd definitely want to wear with a full make-up on. 
Surya Kencana might look good and better for those with bigger eyes I assume :)

Guuuuys! Sorry for the long wait! Hehehe... I can't stop buying things and so here's the promised haul post for ya! These are my recent buy from May to June.

Taraaaaa~~~*Another beauty haul! It's not all, I still have couples of items uncaptured cuz I forgot where d'heck did I put them O_O
Anyway, on the top center I have 'yet another' palette, S104 78 color eyeshadow from NYX, and then some STILA travel palette, I also bought a number of foundation, bare minerals brushes and pink brush set, Make-up book by Robert Jones (one of my fave MUA), CC cream, base, some Lioele stuff (sleeping pack, pore rich balm), lipsticks, curlers, skincare, Bourjois blush, etc, etc... lol

Closer look~ On the left side of bare minerals brushes are TFS eyeshadow stick (which is perfect for inner corner eye brightener!), REVLON just bitten kissable in crush, NYX Jumbo eye pencil in milky.
Eyeshadow from Stila (sydney and london travel palette), Clinique duo eyeshadow in rusted roses (favorite!♥), Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude matte eyeshadow palette, Lipstick from ANNA SUI (fave!!♥), Vincent Longo, Beauty Buffet. Bare minerals loose powder brushes & Masami Shouko blush brush.

Here I have Etude house look at my eye - eyeshadow in orange, The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex single eyeshadows, tony moly mini tint, Etude House sweet Recipe all over color in peach, Etude house curler, Tony moly mini berry tint.
Lioele waterdrop sleeping pack, Lioele secret pore rich balm, Lots of lioele sampler (BB cream, pearl blooming base, waterdrop BB Cream, Beyond the solution BB cream, Triple solution bb cream), SIGMA E60 large shader brush, The face shop lovely me:ex make upbase in green, Tony moly backstage eyeliner gel in brown, Pixy black eyeliner gel.
Foundation! Since I'm now a Foundie girl at heart, I've found my soulmate already! Hehee...Here they are: Revlon whipped cream foundation in buff (I bought two jar because I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!), Revlon photoready airbrush mousse foundation in shell (don't like it bcuz it has shimmer!), SEPHORA light veil mousse foundation (my first love~!), Milani Mousse foundation which I adore so very much!

And here's my new skincare line form WISHTREND.com! Yeaaay! Finally, I've been struggling with minor acne for months and I'm VERY satisfied with the result. Skincare will prevail, lol! The combination of ENCA AC control toner + ENCA AC drying pinky powder + ROJUKISS celtic lime tree mist works like miracle! I'll make a full post about this lovely skincare line later :) (and also a GIVEAWAY~soon!)

Sooo yeaa, completing and revamping my very own make-up traincase is so amusing! I'm gonna look for a new bigger traincase too. I want one in silver or pink :)

Then, I want to show you some of my favorite items which makes me fall head over heel in love with them~! I can find myself wearing these quite often bcuz I really really like it :3

 SEPHORA light veil foundation and CLINIQUE eye shadow duo in Rusted Roses!♥♥

Hehe... I bougt Sephora Foundation from MusesWonderland, the result is far beyond my expectation. Being mesmerized by the result of mousse type foundation, I hunt lots of mousse and whipped type foundation and luckily found some holy grails! Thanks Sephora fond de teint! You opened my eyes! 

While the Clinique eye shadow duo in rusted roses is a preloved items pre-owned by a friend, Jaclyn.  I bought it on a whim cuz the price was so cheap and the duo color looked enticing and wearable. Plus... it's a Clinique~!

 ANNA SUI ~ Sui Rouge V 361.

I Love love LOVE this lipstick! ANNA SUI also changes my old perspective about lipstick. My first lipstick was NYX round lipstick and I grow to dislike it by time bcuz of its incredulous and sloppy quality. But ANNA SUI is different. I know everyone on BEAUTYLISH love this baby as well. Anna Sui Rouge feels more like a tint in stick form and it has an exhilarating real rose scent!
Will also make a separate review for this baby later ^-^

Okaaay, moving on from a haul post, now I have a palette to review! It's an eye shadow and eye brow palette sponsored by KKCENTERHK.

USD$8.93
EyeShadow Color : Pink & Sliver & White
Eyebrow Color : Brown & Black
Box Size : 10cm x 4cm x 1cm[


I'll make a quick review for this palette :) First, about the packaging. It looks like your typical eyeshadow case. Design is just OK, I like it. But the material used need to be improved. The plastic packaging is kinda wobbly and is not sturdy. I think it will break apart on the first time you drop it! Haha!
It comes with a dual sided applicator, sponge brush for eyeshadow and pricky flat brush for eye brow. They're pretty much useless so I'll just throw it away.

What I like about this palette is the eye brow color. The colors are so natural and they're long lasting :) The lighter shade turned out darker swatched, but still match my hair nicely.

The eyeshadows are so-so. Barely has any color pay-off on eyelids even with base, and they look so frosty that I think it's better to use them as inner corner eye brightener instead of the actual eyeshadow. The texture is very crumbly! far away from the creaminess you dreamt off~ hahaay!
-------------------------

On my next post, I'm still going to continue my eye shadow/eye palette review galore :)
I'll leave you with a photo teaser~ Ciao!

Review: PHYSICIANS FORMULA Shimmer Strips Nude Eye Shadow Palette

Okay, first, the original name of this product is Physicians Formula • Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow and Liner- Nude palette • Eye Shadow. It's so mouthful that I decided to call it as PF Nude eye palette. I bought it on a whim just because of its uber cute packaging, hahaha. It's so me! I also love the nude range of shades it haz. So why not? Let me tell you my verdict of this palette~

More details of the packaging (just because I really really like it!) ♥

 PHYSICIANS FORMULA Shimmer Strips Nude Eye Shadow Palette
Love love the packaging! Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Nude Eye Shadow Palette got the cutest packaging for an eye palette! Yeaay. However, the packaging might be pretty but it's so delicate and frail. The cute tiny ribbon could easily fall-off and the lace was broken when I received this palette on mail so I had to fix it. I used a fabric glue to re-attach the lace.

Physicians Formula Shimmer strips nude eyeshadow palette - inner part

Physicians Formula Shimmer strips NUDE eyeshadow palette, there are 9 shades of eyeshadow in nude shade. The darker color in this palette could also be used as liner, and you need to wet your brush/applicator for that purpose.




DIRECTIONS:
Create the Nude Eye: 1. Sweep medium shade over lid as base. 2. Apply darkest shade to upper & lower lash line with pointed tip of applicator to line eyes. For added definition, apply darkest shade in the contour of upper eyelid. To intensify color, wet applicator. 3. Use lightest shade to highlight brow bone.

PHYSICIANS FORMULA  Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner swatches
photo taken under natural lighting

Here's the swatches, with and without base (I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in milky as a base). Without base, the pigmentation is really poor and barely noticeable, especially Trio1 and Trio2. The only color that actually works are Trio3, dramatic.

p.s: the swatches might look good on my hand. but on eyes, it's a whole different story.

Verdict:
I have a love-hate relationship with this palette. And yes, I'm fully aware that peoples are bashing about the color pigment and so will do I. Though I knew that this palette could be used wet or dry, and OFC, using a damp applicator will enhance the color. But still, the lighter color of the shade barely has pigmentation at all! Like, they all look all the same on my eyelids! All shimery and kind of frosty. I tried to pull off a look by using trio 1 and trio 2, and they look just slightly different (with base & primer). What really works is the darker shade, while the lighter shade are all crap.

However, there's still some shade I like from this palette, one of  my favorite shade is the darkest shade from Trio1 #natural which supposed to be a liner, though, I won't really address it as a 'liner' because the color looks much lighter on eyelids. Try use a damp sponge and it will not really enhance the color either. But the color itself is pretty and wearable. 

Texture is so creamy, it crumbs a little but there's nothing to complain about the texture. It adheres nicely too on eyes. With primer, the staying power is quite good. It stay intact on eyes four a couple of hours.

Actually, I tried to love this palette 'fully' but I can't! Haha... the dainty packaging might be the only thing I love the most from this palette. While the other aspect from this palette is poor T___T. The quality of the eyeshadow itself doesn't stand up to its own packaging, that's really a shame.

Other thing, the palette is so small. Therefore, you need to pick the color carefully and gently, cuz there's no separate chamber for each of the color and you might end up picking the neighbouring colors.
