Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner Pencil Pillow Talk Review

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner Pencil Pillow Talk Review:

I have always been kind of skeptical of lip liner – what is it really supposed to do? Why do you need it if you are just going to put lipstick over it? Do you just outline your lips or do you actually fill them in? Recently, I had a chat with a makeup artist, who highly encouraged the use of lip liners as a base for lipstick to make it stay in place and last all day.

She recommended that I get lip liners in three essential colors – one n*de shade, one classic red, and one dark burgundy – to really match the whole spectrum of common lip colors out there. Since I am a more of a MLBB girl, I decided to go for the classic n*de first to test out whether lip liners are actually that useful, and then go from there. What better n*de lip liner to get than the classic Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk?

Pro 8 Cheongdam Stay On Gel Eyeliner 01 Black Review

Pro 8 Cheongdam Stay On Gel Eyeliner 01 Black Review:

Out of the various types of eyeliners, the gel type has always been my favorite. Pencils are great for a breezy, undone look, but they sometimes lack precision and always smudge way too easily on my oily eyelids. Liquid liners work well if you want a perfectly crisp winged look, but for me, they sometimes come off as too perfect, almost unnaturally so. A tiny pot of gel eyeliner is a happy medium for me, striking the perfect balance in the best of both worlds.

Pro 8 Cheongdam was not a brand that I had heard about, until I saw its Stay On Gel Eyeliner being used in one of Pony’s makeup tutorial videos. It glides on silky smooth with great pigment, and so I gave in to the temptation and bought it during my trip to Seoul. The brand is actually under Picasso — yes, Picasso as in the famed Picasso makeup brushes!

So, how does it hold up?

Femmue Repairing Creamy Foam Cleanser Review:

I bought this on my visit to their store a million years ago, and oddly enough I used it fast once I actually started using it. This whole tube lasted me… around two months? Which is quite fast for a foam cleanser. The design is beautiful, the promises are nice, and the brand is a favorite of mine so, of course, after using it I had to write about it.

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review:

In truth, I bought this product due to its hype online from well-known Youtubers to blog reviews. It seemed to be featured everywhere, and at the time, I didn’t exactly have a holy grail for my primer.

So, when I was in London, I made the decision to purchase the Too Faced Hangover Primer, a primer designed to make you look like you’ve been well-hydrated and have gotten sufficient sleep — two things that I’m always lacking!

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

The summer season in Hong Kong means extreme heat and humidity — not the best conditions for my oily and acne-prone skin. It also makes skincare and makeup application a bit of a challenge — it’s always a race to put my “face” on before I start sweating it off. When I found out that Moonshot was coming out with a primer that claimed to not only make makeup last longer but also provide strong UV protection, I knew I had to give it a go.

I have tried a few Moonshot makeup products in the past and haven’t been disappointed, so I had high hopes for their newly-released Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF 50+ PA+++.

The History of Whoo Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation #21 Review:

Normally I look at limited edition cushions and wonder why people would buy them. Until of course I saw pictures of this spring limited edition cushion. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the design at the first sight, yup it’s official I go crazy over cherry blossom (sakura) designs. Oops. At first, I resisted the urge to buy this, because it is certainly a luxury item and very pricey! It sat in my cart for a week while I decided whether to buy it or not.

In the end the design won me over, but also the fact that it came with a refill, and a loose powder sample made me decide to just buy it. I wouldn’t usually buy something this expensive and luxurious, but luckily, that week I got a bonus from my job so I was feeling rich enough to buy this. The fact that I got the bonus made me feel like it was a sign to buy this cushion. (Is it obvious I was looking for any excuse to buy this? Heh.) If you’re curious to see whether it is was worth it to buy this luxury limited edition cushion, keep reading…

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Review:

I’ve been flirting with this essence since January 2014 when it was first released, however for this product to reach the shelves of EU it took a while, as essences are usually promoted and developed mostly for the Asian markets. I finally managed to get a bottle on March 2018 from Notino for 60.90 euro and I’ve been using it twice a day since.

Kose Sekkisei Medicated Lotion Review:

The first time I discovered the Kose Sekkisei Medicated Lotion was around 2011, when I saw Taiwanese actress Ariel Lin endorsing the products in her drama “In Time With You”.

I was still a teenager back then and I remember being intrigued by that product in a beautiful sapphire blue jar. After looking at the price tag online I gave up, but I swore one day I would get to try this luxury beauty product by myself.

Well, fast forward a few years, I finally tried it, and here’s my review on it.

Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Crème Light 5 Review:

Honestly my least favorite part on my face is my undereyes area. It’s dry, full of fine lines, and they are so dark. I have really bad dark circles under my eyes and I have to apply concealer to lighten those up everytime I want to leave my house.

That’s why concealer is a staple thing in my collection, it’s something I need to bring everytime I go on a trip. I tried so many concealers before, from the cheapest one to those which prices are so up there I can’t even understand why I bought them. But I keep buying them just to try different brands and until now I only have 2 favorites so far.

This time I decided to purchase the infamous concealer from Kat Von D, the Lock-It Concealer Crème. If I remember correctly, they released a concealer with a similar name in a small tube packaging but they upgraded to this new version.
