Skineeds Vs Ginvera

In one of my earlier posts I’ve reviewed Ginvera’s Marvel Gel which was in fact not at all “marvelous” compared to Skineeds Acne Moderator: SuperGel Blackhead Remover from Priceabuse.com. Just to refresh, the gel uses salicylic acid to exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells. It does not immediately removes the blackheads but having the tough outer layer removed makes it easier for blackheads to be drawn out when deep cleansing. I’ve done a “tape test” which will compare the before and after of using both Ginvera and Skineeds to show that Skineeds removes dead skin cells more effectively.

The Skineeds is only RM6 and I really really like it because my skin feels really clean and soft without drying and it helps to keep my blackheads at bay when I rub regularly especially on my nose area. It's rather hard for me to spot this at pharmacies nowadays so I get it directly from the website itself. There's one for normal condition and one for more serious condition. I prefer the one for serious condition but if your skin can get very dry and peel, I would suggest that you go for the normal condition gel.



Step 1: Equal blobs were applied.



Step 2: Both blob were rubbed with similar pressure and duration. More "residues" from Skineeds.



Step 3: The tape test results. The top is the before test. The bottom left is Ginvera and bottom right is Skineeds. The tape result for Skineeds shows that more dead were removed which will result in clearer looking skin.

Quick Big Eyes

First day of college!!!

I've been having bad skin lately so for today's look I didn't really want such a heavy base but just enough to hide the imperfections and even out the skin tone. The eye make up, in my opinion, makes my eyes look rounder and thus, bigger-looking. I really like this makeup for day so here's how you do it! And please excuse my hideousness in the before pictures.

Items Used:

Missha BB Cream
ELF Tone Correcting Concealer
Revlon Skinlights in Peach Light
Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Soft Plum
Giorgio Armani Loose Powder
Indelible Cream Eyeshadow in Bare Necessity
Shu Uemura Glow On Blush in P Gold 91
Giorgio Armani Eyeshadow in #61 (i think)
Indelible Gel Eyeliner in Black Cherry
Flamingo Mascara + Etude Fibre
Smashbox Duo Eye Pencil
Prescriptives Eyebrow Powder
Giorgio Armani Lip Shimmer in #19




Start with a clean, moisturized face. Apply BB Cream all over with fingers or a foundation brush. Next, dot concealer where you need it and blend to hide those pesky spots and skin discolorations. Add some healthy glow by sweeping a peachy illuminizer on your cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. For some color, blend mousse blush onto the apples and set everything with a light dust of loose powder.



Prep eyelids with an eye primer. Apply a soft highlight color under the brow blending towards the lid. Sweep on a bronze eyeshadow all over the lids and blend into the crease.



Pick up some highlight color with your brush and blend along the separation line in back and forth movements.



Draw a thick line of gel eyeliner creating a well-defined wing. Tightline with a black pencil. Curl lashes and apply thick coats of mascara. Line the bottom waterline with white eyeliner pencil. Fill in the brows with eyebrow powder.


Slap on some peachy gloss and done!

Please ignore the following pictures, I just felt like cam-whoring today. Thanks for looking!

Silver Smokey Eyes Tutorial -- With Tape!

I know, it's been a long time since I've posted a tutorial (or any posts for that matter) and finally, I have time to do this. I'm trying to do it with a tape again but I'm not quite satisfied with the angle and I think when using tape, it's hard to adjust the angle after you've done everything. Also, please excuse my lack of pictures for the liner steps because my camera ran out of batteries and I had to charge them.

You may notice that I already have mascara on. Well, I had it on since last night and I was too lazy to remove it. Please do not condone in this bad habit. And I'm really upset because I've lost my favourite small eye contour brush.

Items Used:

  1. Indelible Cream Eyeshadow in Bare Necessity
  2. Hard Candy black base
  3. MAD Pigments in Wedding
  4. Secretsummer Pigments in Softwash Grey (it's the only silver I have apparently)
  5. Secretsummer Pigments in Dark Soul
  6. Kate Gel Eyeliner in BK-2
  7. SaSa White Eyeliner
  8. Clinique Lash Power Mascara

These are the brushes that I've used. Just a few. I'm too lazy and most of my brushes are dirty.


Start off with a fresh canvas (although I've already had mascara on, this is not recommended). Apply cream eyeshadow as a primer all over the lids. Fix on the sticky tape. Use the lower lash line curve as a guide but I wasn't all that satisfied with the shape that I got eventually. Apply the black base on the outer half of the lid.


Take the small contour brush (I'm using a sub which is nowhere near as good as my missing one *sobs*) and apply Wedding on the inner corner of the lids. Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, sweep Softwash Grey all over the remaining lid. Blend the color into the crease.


Using the same brush as before, apply Dark Soul on where the black base is towards the tape line and blend it into the outer crease. Sweep on more Softwash Grey to blend the separation lines. Blend blend blend.


Using my new Bobbi Brown eye contour brush (the most expensive brush I've ever bought which is quite good but not exactly similar to the long handled one that I've initially fell for) to apply Wedding under the brow bone and to further blend the top lines. After you're satisfied with your blending, peel off the tape.

This is when my camera ran out of batteries. To finish the look, apply gel eyeliner creating a wing and extending the liner to the lower lash line. Pat on some Dark Soul on the gel liner on the lower lash line and some Soft Wash Grey to the rest of the lower lash line. Line the lower rim of the eyes with a pearly white eyeliner pencil. Curl lashes and apply mascara.

Done!

Of Fringes and Preciousness

I’ve been hearing quite a lot about KATE’s Mascara Base (Retail Price: RM29.90) and given the opportunity of getting it as a gift with purchase, I “persuaded” myself to get a KATE Lip Gloss just so I can get the mascara base for free! Excuse me, but I’m a typical Malaysian. We pay for free stuff. Ironic isn’t it? Anyways, I was rather to psyched to finally be able to try this mascara base out. I’ll be comparing it to another mascara base that I have which is from Missha (Online Price: RM16).



Pictures speak a thousand words indeed.

KATE did nothing for my lashes. It wasn’t an extra step worth taking. The only good thing about it is probably that the formula dries somewhat clear so that when you coat your mascara unevenly you won’t see white bits. Other than that, I’m probably gonna chuck this aside or sell it or something *starts looking for buyers*

Missha’s mascara base really stood out by increasing volume and length to the lashes. This is a good base to save mascaras that just wouldn’t work (eg. my Kleancolor mascara). It does curl the lashes a little bit but nothing too dramatic. I usually use this base to enhance my L’Chear Mascara although I don’t really reach for it as much as I almost always prefer to use my Clinique Lash Power Mascara (HOLY GRAIL!!).

Speaking of my Clinique Lash Power Mascara, I officially own a full-sized tube! All this while I’ve been using 2 sample tubes for about 2 years and it’s getting pretty dry in there. I traded for Clinique Lash Power with a Kate mascara. This is my all time favorite daily mascara and nobody really knows why. It doesn’t give amazing lengths or volume or curl and it isn’t all that dramatic thus not many are convinced. Nevertheless, I love this mascara for many reasons:


  • I don’t have to apply 10,000 coats to get the effect that I’m satisfied with
  • The formula doesn’t clump up my lashes or smudge
  • My lashes are not weighed down even if I don’t curl
  • The wand is perfectly shaped for me that I very seldom get boo-boos
  • The tiny wand makes it so easy to coat lashes that are in the inner corner of the eyes and lower lashes
  • The color is Onyx Black which is quite a dark black but it gives a kind of iridescent sheen giving the lashes like a 3D effect
  • The formula doesn’t irritate my eyes (trust me, many others do)
  • I can wash this off even if I don’t have a makeup remover with me because it comes off with warm water
  • It doesn’t make my lashes fall off (Damn you Maybelline!)
  • The tube doesn’t dry up after less than 5 months like most mascaras do. In fact I think the mascara gives a better effect when it’s slightly dried up

10 reasons enough? But then again, make-up is very personal. It may not work for everyone. Always keep that in mind.

Mineral Foundation

The hype for mineral powder foundation has been ongoing, although not so much in Malaysia, but very much so in the United States. Of course, since I’ve been exposed to mineral pigments and loving them so much, I’ve given mineral foundation a try as well.

Mineral foundations are as stated in the name, made of minerals and they are heavily pigmented powders so that you do not have to use a lot of product. They are suitable for all skin types and especially recommended to those who have sensitive skin and tend to react badly to regular foundations. Minerals foundations typically have a high content of titanium dioxide which is a great sun protection ingredient. Usually, coverage can be built gradually especially when using a dense kabuki brush to buff on the foundation. Alternatively, mineral foundations can be mixed with water (or rather, used with a moistened brush) to create a liquid foundation effect. You may also mix it with your moisturizer to create a tinted moisturizer. I’m yet to try out the wet method of applying mineral foundation.

So far I’ve tried 3 different brands of loose powder mineral foundation. I first started with Sweetscents, then E.L.F. and recently, MAD Minerals. I’d like to compare the different brands of foundations and also what I generally feel about mineral foundation.


Sweetscents

This gives a sheer coverage but just enough to even out the skin tone. My skin looks really smooth and refined. It doesn’t feel dry at all on the skin (probably because most mineral foundations do not contain talc which is an oil absorbing ingredient) and I really liked the feel of it. However, it didn’t stay on and just worn off after just half a day. I have a sample pack that is in a darker shade which I find to work as a good tint for a healthy-looking skin color or used even as a bronzer.


E.L.F.

Due to the fact that I wanted something with a heavier coverage, I actually got the E.L.F. Mineral Concealer. However, to my disappointment, even the concealer could not give me the coverage that I wanted. The staying power is comparable with Sweetscents’ foundation but I think I like Sweetscents better. It just looks better. The only thing I like about this is that it has shimmer (if you don’t already know, I’m a sucker for shimmer) so I guess I can use it as a finishing loose powder or something but I would not actually use this as a foundation.


MAD Minerals

This is by far the most preferred mineral foundation that I’ve tried out of the lot. The coverage builds up really well and the staying power isn’t too bad either plus the finishing is really smooth. On the down side, I feel that this foundation is a tad too dry for my skin because it accentuated my “lines” and it also tends to cake up around my cheek area where I usually load up on the coverage. However, whenever I choose to use a mineral foundation, I’d reach for MAD’s. I’m also looking forward to try the wet method for this foundation.


All in all, I think that mineral foundation isn’t a too bad addition to makeup because there is a huge lot that are in love with mineral foundation (I feel left out *sobs*) but I still prefer liquid or cream foundation. I don’t find the hassle of using mineral foundation all that worth it for the effect that I’m hoping for. Or perhaps I just need a better kabuki brush. I don’t know. I’ll update you when I eventually find something that I really like about mineral foundation. I’m really hoping that a better brush would make a difference.

Mineral foundations are now available from Loreal (a more generic brand). I have not tried that before and I don’t really intent to because it’s quite pricey and I really don’t need such a big jar since I can’t even finish what I have now (you really just use very little product!). The Loreal one comes with a mini kabuki brush (which feels like a broom, by the way) and if you’re trying that out, I’d like to know what you think of it!

Glowing Skin In A Bottle

M.A.C. has a popular product called Fix+ which "adds radiance and finishes makeup". Basically, it's a glycerin + water spray which is used to "set" your makeup to take away the powdery look from your foundation, give skin a dewy glow, help makeup stay on longer and hydrate the skin.


Since I can never bring myself to buy M.A.C. products, I thought I'd try my hands at making my own finishing spray scented with lavender essential oil. It's very easy to make and I'm totally in love this. It gave my skin an all-day dewy look. To use this, just spray on face and pat lightly as the last touch for your makeup.

Here's how you make it!

You'll need:

  1. Water (you can use Evian if you want it to be more luxurious)
  2. Glycerin
  3. Lavender Pure Essential Oil (you may also use Rose, Peppermint or whatever scent you prefer)
  4. Spray bottle with a fine mist


First, you fill up your spray bottle with water, leaving 1/4 or so of volume left. Fill in the remaining of the bottle with glycerin. Add in about 10 drops of essential oil. Screw on the cap and shake well. Done!
This formula is for those with dry skin, like mine. If you have oily skin, use more water and less glycerin. Remember to shake before every usage. You shouldn't keep this mixture for more than a month as it doesn't contain any preservatives.

Ratio of Water:Glycerin

Dry Skin -- 4:1
Normal Skin -- 6:1
Oily Skin -- 8:1

Try it for yourself!

Yo Ho! Yo Ho! A Pirate's Life's For Me!

I found "imitations" of 2 products that I already have and since they were quite cheap, as compared to the original ones that I bought, I thought it'd be fun to see how these products compare and measure up to each other.


First, I have Etude Fiber Magical Eyelash which is similar to my Flamingo Mascara. As you all know, Flamingo Mascara is one of my favorite products so, of course I was tempted to see if I could get the same effect with this cheaper version. I was hoping that I could get similar results because the concept is the same. Mascara + loose fibers and both are from China. However, to my slight disappointment, they in fact, do not give similar results. Far from similar I must say. What do you think? The top row pictures are using Flamingo Mascara while the bottom two are using Etude Fiber. I'm yet to try the fibers with the Flamingo Mascara's Transplanting Gel to compare the fiber quality. Click on this to read my review on the Flamingo Mascara.



Next, I bought Relian Gel Eyeliner which is supposedly similar to Kate Gel Eyeliner (which is one of my favorite products as well). I got Granite which is a silver color. Well, the packaging is practically alike and it does come with a brush but the content is completely different. I don't think that this product can even qualify as a gel eyeliner. It's way too creamy and the color plain couldn't get on my lids. I tried using it as a base. but it creases. It doesn't smudge easily though so probably it'll be good as a cream eyeshadow but you'll still need a good base underneath to avoid creasing. The only thing I like about this is the brush. I still prefer my Kate brush which is smaller but it doesn't hurt to have another brush. To read my review on Kate Gel Eyeliner, click here.

Both products respectively get a rating of 2.5/5 and 1.5/5

Origins Organics


"The first full line of prestige skin, body and hair care products to be certified under the consistently stringent standards of the USDA National Organic Program. Formulated to help sustain the global health and well-being of our planet."

I've been using a few products from Origins Organics line and so I've decided to do a review on those products. Although the price for Origin's products are usually very reasonably priced, I do find that the Organics are quite expensive. For that reason, I'll try not to base my review on the price but the quality of the product itself.



Nourishing Face Lotion (95% Certified Organic)

Blended with Organic Cocoa Butter and Organic Shea Butter, this face lotion moisturized my skin for long hours with only one pump of product. I'm used to using heavy cream moisturizers at night so I was rather skeptical with using this face lotion for night time seeing how the texture was light. To my surprise, it managed to keep my skin hydrated through out the night even with a small amount being used. It absorbs quickly into my skin so often I'm tempted to add more lotion but I've managed to get the most of one pump by spreading the lotion on my hands first and then patting the lotion onto my skin. It doesn't feel or look greasy (although I'm comfortable with that) but I can still feel that my skin is hydrated which I'm very pleased with because I usually find moisturizing lotions to be pointless on my dry skin. The smell of this product is very aromatherapeutical with Organic Clove, Rose, Lavender, Patchouli and Red Thyme Essential Oils. I've always loved products with such a scent. I highly recommend this moisturizer to anyone.

My Rating: 4/5



Soothing Lip Balm (97% Certified Organic)

One of the better lip balms that I've ever used, this lip balm truly moisturizes my lips for a good amount of time without a greasy look. The lip balm itself is quite firm in texture so I didn't actually have to apply a lot of the product. Since the weather here is so warm the product does get a tad warmed up but it doesn't just fall apart and turn into goo, which is good. I prefer the lip balm to be warmed up because I feel that I use even less of the product. I only dab on my lips and it's moisturizing enough. Just like the other Organics, the smell of this lip balm is really nice as well but there's no taste. As for the soothing, I think I still prefer minty lip balms for soothing but it does relieve dryness. This product contains Organic Shea and Cocoa Butters and Organic Sunflower, Safflower, Palm, Coconut and Vanilla Oils. I do love vanilla! There is a hint of vanilla scent in there. I'm not too crazy about the packaging but I suppose it's meant to be environmental friendly.

My Rating: 4/5



Foaming Face Wash (73% Certified Organic)

Contains Organic oils – Clove Bud, Pink Grapefruit, Italian Lemon, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Rose oil and Red Thyme that really gives this face wash an aromatherapeutic scent which of course, I love. One pump of the clear golden liquid is enough to create a lot of lather that feels very silky on the skin. I don't think it cleans as well as Checks and Balances does but it's still alright. There is a slight cooling effect after cleansing.

My Rating: 3.5/5

Watsons Green Tea Mask Review


I bought Watsons Green Tea Essence Anti-Oxidant Facial Mask some time ago but I haven't got to posting a review which is what I'll be doing now. I got the 6 pieces mask but they do sell them individually I think. I'm not sure what the normal price is but I got this for RM9.90 since it was on sale.

"protect your skin from environmental damage and the signs of aging. Leaves your skin with a more youthful appearance"

"Refreshes tired and dull skin, revealing skin's natural glow. Helps cleanse and purify the skin, leaving it looking radiant. Provides intensive moisturising to help improve overall skin texture."


So, I've been using this and I must say that I really like this. It's a sheet of cotton mask soaked in "30ml of green tea essence". I'm not sure if there actually is 30ml of essence in each mask but i can say that it is well soaked as the mask is practically dripping. The sheet is easy to adjust according to the shape of your face but I find that it may not go on too neatly.

The initial feeling is very cooling and I especially like this because it feels very comfortable thus this is an excellent mask for tired times when you just wanna relax. As I remove the mask in 20 minutes although I usually leave it on longer, there are still residues of the essence on the mask sheet and also my face. So, I squeeze out the rest of the essence and massage it onto my face. The essence is very smooth and it really does hydrate the skin. I use this at night and the next morning, my skin feels really supple and soft. I don't think visually it made much of difference but this is definitely a really good mask for hydration and relaxing. I'll definitely buy this again but only if there's a sale again.

My Rating: 3.5/5

One Mascara, Two Looks

I tried this method of applying mascara to see if it really works. For both eyes, I used Maybelline's Unstoppable Shiny Black Mascara. For the left eye, I added liquid liner, a spoolie (mascara wand brush) and some patience. The results, thicker, longer and fuller lashes. This shows that in many cases, the application may affect the outcome rather than the formula itself.


Do you see the difference?

Here's how you do it:

  1. Fill in the gaps between the root of the lashes with a liquid liner and line the inner rim of the upper lash line to give the illusion of fuller lash line.
  2. Curl your lashes from root to tip.
  3. Coat lashes with mascara starting from the root and wiggling the wand upwards to the tip. This helps to get more product onto the lashes. Repeat a few times.
  4. Comb through lashes with a spoolie and reapply mascara.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you get the result that you want.

I hope you'll find this helpful! Give it a try and let me know how it turns out. The key ingredient here is patience.

Glam It Up!!

I did a CD case palette for my blushers using this tutorial.
It looked pretty plain so I decorated it with some metallic sticker on the back and a see through purple card slotted in the front. I'm gonna do another CD case palette for my eyeshadow pans and I've bought some sequins to decorate it but I'm yet to actually getting started.

Eyebrow Threading


As you may or may not have noticed, I've been having horrendous as I've been growing them out so that I can get them properly done.

I decided to try eyebrow threading which is a hair removal technique originated from India, using thread to remove facial hair by kinda twisting the hair out. I've seen many people do this and they get really nice shapes that are really clean as compared to shaving that normally leaves harsh bristles.

This was my first experience. I got this done at a Punjabi beauty salon called Jes Fashion & Beauty (I think). It's in Semenyih but this service is also available in many other places. I initially wanted to get this done in Bangsar. I paid RM5 for the service.

The procedure was about 15 minutes or so. It stung a little bit but it wasn't horrifyingly painful. As in I twitched, but that's about it. It's usually more painful when I pluck my own eyebrows. But then again, everyone has a different pain tolerance.

I think that it came out a little too thin than what I like but it should look fine once I fill them in. I'll definitely go back to threading to get my brows done

So, if you need to get your brows done, you can give threading a try. Below are my own before and after pictures.

Tagged! -- 6 Quirks


Golden Gluteus tagged me to "expose" my quirks which I think I definitely have more than just six. Can I do 2 categories of quirks just so I can get 12 quirks in here? It doesn't say in the rules that I can't, does it? I'm just gonna assume that it doesn't.

The Rules are:
1. Link the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules in your blog
3. Tell about 6 quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they've been tagged.


General Quirks

1. My other passion besides makeup is creepy crawlies. I love my pets that are mostly exotic pets. I own them together with my boyfriend and he literally charmed me with his snake, Patrick. LITERALLY! So, no inverted commas there. We have snakes, lizards, gliders, scorpions, turtles, hedgehogs, tarantulas, and all that. I love spiders. That's my Mexican Fireleg Tarantula on the right.

2. I'm phobic of heights and crossing roads. They're respectively called acrophobia and dromophobia. My legs go completely jelly when I'm looking down from high places so definitely no bungee jumping for me. I'll poop in my pants! Roads just intimidate me and having dear-in-headlights syndrome really doesn't help.

3. My beau says that he can tell that I'm coming from afar even though he can't make out my face. This is because I walk like King Kong. You'd think that walking doesn't require much thought but apparently I have to think before I walk just so I won't look like I'm going to stomp through the city and destroy buildings.



4. I love watching cartoons! I know I'm turning 21 in a few months but I LOVE cartoons. I can just watch cartoons all day long on Nickelodeon. You'd think I get glued on One Tree Hill or something. I think I've watched every single episode of Spongebob Squarepants and Fairly Odd Parents. Sadly, since I don't have a TV at my condo, I don't get to watch cartoons everyday anymore.

5. I don't believe in spending more than RM40 for a handbag or shoes. Perhaps I don't really know how to appreciate bags but I generally don't go all out for them. I like them and I think that some are really really pretty but if they're over my budget, I won't starve myself to buy them. It's probably a good thing since I spend so much on makeup. Oh God. I don't even dare to count how much I've spent on makeup. And I'm already considered thrifty compared to most girls but unlike them, I'm greedy. More. I need more!

6. I have eczema hence, I have tons of allergies that it can get really depressing. I can get bee-stung lips from using lip products that are not right for me or even a rash from using the wrong cream or anything really. The possibilities are endless. There are certain food that I can't take like beef, crab, shrimp, artichoke, raisins, honey dew, rock melon, apples and the blue Clorets. I'd either swell up, get a rash or my throat closes. Not very fun indeed. Having fluid-oozing rash also indicates my stress level so stress is not good for me too.

Gross Quirks

WARNING: Read At Your Own Risk!

1. I hate bathing. I don't like bathing. I try my best to avoid bathing unless it's really really hot and I stink or I'm really dirty or if I have to meet people. I only bathe once a day on average. Thankfully I don't have body odor so I don't really need perfume to cover up the stench. I hate washing my hair even more because I have so much hair. I only wash it when it starts to itch and I get dandruff. However, to make up for the week's ickiness I "deep-cleanse" once to twice a week when I really really clean and practically lock myself in the bathroom for 2 hours.

2. I get oddly excited over white heads, pimples, boils and whatever else that has pus. One of my favorite past time is to pull out accumulating white heads from my boyfriend's face with tweezers and squeezing stuff from his back. He'd like it in the beginning but then he'd just get annoyed because I wouldn't stop doing it. The sight of oozing pus turns me on so so bad. It's like.... *gooop*. Ahh.... mmm.....

3.
I honestly announce when I fart. Whether silent or hooting. Isn't it just so irritating when you can smell someone's gas in the lecture hall but everyone plays dumb and you keep wondering, "Who the hell farted?!". I'm just being polite when I tell. lol.

4.
My nails are horrendous because I chew on them. It's not compulsive where I gnaw on them when I'm nervous or something like that. I just do it because I'm too darn lazy to clip my nails. I've tried keeping my nails a little longer many many times but I always end up biting them off because just looking at that huge piece of nail is just so amazing. Toe nails, especially, are the best. They come with tons of dead skin stuck to the under side.

5.
Pillow fights are fun, aren't they? Ever heard of spit fight? You should try it sometimes

6. I feel gross looking through all my grossness so I'm just gonna skip number 6. Be glad that I decided not to show pictures for this category.

Oh gosh. Here comes the hard part. Um.... I think I'll tag Carmen, Mangolisa, Suet Li and Juayne. Only Carmen knows me. Hah! I'll post up another 2 when I can find them.
