Make-up Review : Catrice Liquid Lip Tint in Are You Red-y

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I’m back with a review of my first ever Catrice product! I’m late to the party as most of my beauty blogger friends have already tried out a few Catrice products. But no worries, this one of the many reviews to come! *insert evil laugh here*

So anyways, I’ve actually come to like to use a photo collage to do my reviews, so expect a few of this later on! LOL :p

Anyways, I was looking around the Catrice stand and yes, I’m a big fan of lip tints as I find them easier to use than lipsticks and they last longer. I never tried any Western lip tints as all of mine are from Korean brands such as Tonymoly, Holika Holika and Missha. I might try out tints from Etude House as they actually have purple lip tint.

This lip tint is actually somewhat weird than any other Korean-branded tints I’ve tried, it has a watery sticky texture that when applied, might take a long time to set on your lip unless you sheer it out. I love the color on me, it’s almost like a bright berry red on me. I even wore it to school as I just love to wear a bright lip color on me while having a very toned-down eye look.

One other thing is that, I really love how it tasted, it’s sweet and I have to add a slick of lipgloss so I could stop myself from licking it. So this actually prolongs the wearing time of this tint, or else, by at least 2 hours the tint will fade.

Though I like this tint, I would never repurchase this again, but I do like to buy the other color which is a bright orange-y red.

Product Empties : March 2013

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Looking at the picture below, it’s a lot of make-up to throw away. All items are expired or used up or just doesn’t work for me anymore. I was having a clear-out on my make-up and I did not realize that I have so many make-ups that I should’ve thrown out a long time ago. I did change up how I store my make-up and such. It’s more spacey now that I’ve rearranged it.

1.       Essence All Eyes On Me Mascara – This is a nice purple mascara that is not waterproof, it does a nice job of creating volume for my lashes but unfortunately, it has dried out already, I’ve purchased a new mascara already from Essence, but I haven’t touch that yet and won’t touch it until all my mascaras are used up.

2.       Sariayu Foundation and Silkygirl’s Lightening Foundation -  The Sariayu foundation, it’s very easy to finish it as it does a great job of blending and brighten my face easily for everyday or everytime I go out for errands and such. Not something I’d repurchase hurrily. The Silkygirl’s Foundation, I’ve given up on it, it doesn’t make a very good impression of the hundred times I use it. The smell, the longevity, yuck!

3.       Tonymoly’s Milky Lip Tint – A big favourite of mine, I’ve been using it a lot and I’ve finally come to terms that both have already run out :’( I won’t be repurchasing this anytime soon, I have lots more lip tints to finish up!

4.       Silkygirl’s Long-wearing Eyeliner, Funky Eyeliner and Glitter Liner – I don’t know why I never can get on with their eyeliners very well, although their liquid pen liner is the best one so far amongst their eyeliners. I’ve never tried out the funky eyeliner out because they have this stinky smell that I kept putting off on throwing out, the glitter liner was I think an old stock, and the texture isn’t something I’d like to try. The Long-wearing Crayon Eyeliner smudges like crazy and doesn’t even have a great pigmentation!

5.       Safi Balqis Lipstick and Etude House Roll Roll Lipgloss – The Balqis lipstick is a favourite of mine as it is a MLBB shade but unfortunately, it was being discontinued from a long time ago, so I’m so sad to see this one go. The Etude House Lipgloss, the colour is nude, I love to pair it with a red lip tint to make it a little coral-ish but then I’ve actually saw the product has separated and the smell was bad and it’s time to throw it away.

6.       L’Action Dark Circle Corrector and Essence’s Pure Skin Spot Treatment – The only skincares I’m throwing out, I actually have finished up a lot of skincare products but I couldn’t be bother to actually bring it back to my room from the toilet just so I could take pictures with it. The L’Action was A WASTE OF MONEY, it doesn’t work, the gel doesn’t even do anything and the concealer that came with it dries up before I could even test it out. The Essence’s Spot Treatment is one of the few duds I’ve come across from Essence, it dries out too, which is understandable because it has some sort of alcohol in it.
What’s the one product that you kept on using up and repurchase all the time?

Beauty Bought : Essence and Catrice

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

After such a long time, I've been to busy to even go to shops and buy makeups and when I do, I usually don't have the power in me to buy a lot more than I would usually buy. Not really in a spending ban, but I seem to have limited amount of time to browse through these shops T-T

So today, I'm bringing in my first and certainly not my last haul from Catrice! I still am not sure of what I should buy first from Catrice, any recommendation girls?

Want-it Wishlist : Essence Sun Club and Night Club Palettes

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another Want-It Wishlist, I should actually label it as Palette Wishlist as I am a real sucker for eyeshadow palettes and budget makeup. Combining both is a lethal combination for me as I'd definitely go on and drool over them. I've actually found a brand that really gets me going, I'd definitely post about it next time, InshaAllah. It might actually make you drool too.

Anyways, I've already purchased the first palette from Essence, though the texture wasn't so satisfying but at least it doesn't ruin the pigments of the eyeshadows, so I'd definitely want to go back for more. 

The new palettes from the Night Club range is nice too! I'd love to get my hands on to the dark purple version. But I'd definitely try and get all of them for my collection, LOL!

Make-up Review : Cyber Colors BB Cream in Royal Caviar

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another review from Cyber Colors and this time it's the Royal Caviar version. I pretty much hardly know any difference between the BB Creams except for their long-lasting properties as this BB Cream is more moisturizing than the Peony Deep Moist. So it really gets me shiny after just a few hours.

What I like about these Cyber Colors BB Cream is that they are easy to blend and I found that this BB Cream is much darker than the other two, so I didn't need to mix a large amount of my darker foundation to create a perfect match for my skin.

As per the other BB Cream, this actually also gives me an illusion of a flawless skin, it does give quite a glow since this is very moisturizing, but definitely the less favorite of all three. One other thing is that, this has a very pungent smell to it, it's not nice but as you applied it the smell does subside.

Reader's Opinion : Coral Blushes in Brunei

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I hardly go out these days, I mean, I do go out on dates with someone, but I never really get to go to any cosmetic stands to find stuffs anymore, I mean, my date is pretty much someone who actually is cool with makeup, I did go to Bodyshop and survey some of their perfumes and body mists, he actually enjoys surveying those kind of stuff with me.

But then, I've never been someone who'd actually look around for a blush, do you have a good recommendation for any coral blushes that are available in Brunei? I only know Essence only carries reds and pinks.

Sample Review : The Faceshop's Hydro Splash BB Cream

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

A sample review from The Faceshop's BB Cream sample. I was a little worried to try this out as Hydro Splash means that it might be moisturizing or a little too moisturizing, but I decided to go ahead and wear this out after a few weeks that this sample has been in my stash.

I am very surprised that the sample is very generous as I've actually managed to use up about 8 applications from this. At first I was glad that the color of this BB Cream is very dark, I might finally found a BB Cream that suits my skintone, but too bad, the color is actually lighter than light as I proceed to blend this into my skin, which blends nicely.

It settles into my skin nicely with a light to medium coverage, it also reduces the appearance of my pores and fine line. Which is actually a big bonus. Would I ever buy the full-size version? Maybe, as much as this BB Cream impresses me, it doesn't give me a very good impression that I would run out to buy this and I do have a lot more BB Creams to go through.

Want-it Wishlist : Technic Palettes

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Okay, another wishlist and obsession over palettes. This is actually a brand from UK, I think I'm pretty much revised with some of the budget brands from UK than my friends in UK who are into makeup as well. LOL!

I'd definitely purchase all of these palettes, InshaAllah, so watch this space for the swatch and reviews, they actually are affordable too! They cost around B$4 each, so why not collect all, LOL!

Make-up Review : Cyber Colors BB Cream in Peony Deep Moist

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

The review on this BB Cream should have been done long time ago, but never got around to do it. I bought this when I was in Miri, at Sasa's outlet at Parkson Mall, I bought it in a sample set of three 10ml BB Cream, for RM30+ I guess it's very affordable for 3 samples as Skin79's BB Cream 8ml sample alone can cost around B$8.

This one is in Peony Deep Moist, I never actually see these in their full-size version in Sasa or I wasn't looking at the stands carefully, but nevermind, I'd go there again and check the next time I'm there for a visit. Cyber Colors are actually from Korea but I hardly see a lot of reviews about their BB Creams.

Anyways, like any Asian BB Creams, they will NEVER EVER suit my skintone, but these actually have light to medium coverage, I'm never fussy about the coverage, never really need a foundation/BB Cream with full coverage as long as the coverage fades the obvious appearance of my dark acne scars.

It does give me a white cast as most BB Cream does, but that can be solved by mixing it with a darker foundation. Although I noticed that this BB Cream actually gives an illusion of a flawless skin even though my acne scars are peeking through, I think it has some sort of illuminating properties for giving this flawless illusions. 

This last me well up to 4-5 hours before it gets shiny on my nose, so retouching is needed. I'm pretty impressed with this BB Cream.

A repurchase? Maybe if I can actually find the full size of this product.

Skincare Review : Baviphat Indi Girl Tea Tree Catch Oil

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I've had this long in my draft unattended, so while I'm busy doing my assignments and I'm having my off day today, so I might as well just update this and review this oil for you ladies.

So my skin is very prone to acne, and when I say acne, it's not those barely there spots, it's definitely those acnes where you can pop it to excrete those yellow icky pus. And I'm one of those gals who likes to pop pimples, LOL! So basically I'm not helping my skin at all, letting them be inflamed and produces those dark scars along the way. I'm currently on a skincare routine that helps eliminate these acne scars, so far so good. 

Back to this oil, I've been trying to find tea tree oil in Brunei, let's face it, it wasn't easy, although I know there's a Tea Tree Oil product at Bodyshop but I somehow never bought anything from there, except to repurchase my favorite EDP there.

The Baviphat Tea Tree Oil was on offer, I can't remember the price but it was less than $5 where as the usual price was around the $15 mark, so it was a very nice bargain at that time. It contains about 20ml worth of product, it smells like tea tree oil, I pretty much prefer them to have a dropper as it is easier than this, but this stops from spilling any wastage, so all is not lost.

I don't need to swatch it as it is just basically oil. When apply to my blemishes, it has this cooling effect, but if I do have an open wound, it would sting as how spirits does to any wounds, so I assume that they do contain some kind of alcohol at some point. 

The effect they have on pimples can be seen in a matter of 2 days, it's nice but I don't think I'll be repurchasing this as I really need something that can instantly deflate any pimples so I can actually stop myself from popping it on my free time.

Random Ranting : A new Instagram Account :D

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I haven't had the time to actually post any beauty-related but I try to do some of it anytime soon. Ok, maybe not soon enough. But anyways, I've actually reached a milestone of 100k views! YAY. I'm still busy with my assignments and tutorials, it's something that's been haunting my schedule for the past few days, I haven't spent time with my family for two weeks now.

I haven't even actually celebrate my birthday properly as I didn't have the luxury to do so. I think I'll spend a "ME" day on Sunday. So I might focus on scheduling a few posts on my Sunday. I have a few hauls from UK that needs to come to Brunei, which I know will take a long time, maybe arrive in July? But I did post a few of the sneak peeks in my new Instagram Account

Random Ranting : How I Got Lost in a Pile of Work

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I'm sorry for the lack of post due to my pile of assignments, I seriously think this is the most stressful past weeks I've ever encountered. I haven't even celebrated my birthday properly. There's still a few things on my list of things-to-do that I need to tick. 

Anyways, I will resume posts after things have settled down. I've already prepared a book that I use to make as lists of things for me to do in different areas in my life, including blogging, assignments, researching universities and other random stuffs. So I'll try to keep myself more organized.

I really can't believe this workload that gets me stressful. I even went down to the office ,where I've been doing my assignment, thanks to my friends for letting me use it, for 8 days straight. A Friday and two Sundays included.

I even don't have the time to actually reply my emails, comments and check my Facebook frequently, which I usually do ASAP. Though, I do thank one of my readers who keeps on messaging me through Facebook. Thanks for trusting me to give you opinions about your questions =D

So anyways, I hope you girls can understand my dilemma here and I'll be back with more reviews soon. You can check how I progress in life with my personal instagram @dknurazimah202
Because I'd usually update myself there, can't wait to see you girls there :)
