Make-up Review: Silkygirl Magic BB Water Gel in 02 Radiant

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Apart from the pencil lipbalm, I decided to try a few of their products as well including this. So what I am expect from this BB Gel is that it provides sunscreen and moisture, it is easy to wash off and it fits my skintone perfectly. I know there's a lot of Korean BB Cream out there. My favorite currently is Missha's Perfect Cover BB Cream but it is usually heavy so it was kinda hard to wash off with just a cleanser.

I know I should use a make-up remover than just a normal cleanser, but I don't really have the luxury to bring all my makeup removal routine to school. So this product is a great alternative for what you can say a tinted moisturizer.

Sorry for the blurry pic but you can see the color of the swatch clearly, the color is of a light-medium beige with a yellow tone, as you can see it is a little light, but when I applied it to my skin, the yellow tone of the cream helped it adjust to my skintone if that even made sense. 

Texture-wise, it is a watery gel and it blends out nicely like a moisturizer would do. This gel is not perfect for dry skin because it clings to dry patches. Overall, when you wear this out it would feel lightweight and soft, it dries down to a matte finish. The lasting power is what I expected it to be, it starts to get oily on the 4th hour. Although the lasting power is minimal, this is pretty much suited for me to use and wear it in school as I would be able to wash this off very easily.

This might not be or might be a repurchase for me, depends on whether I can find something better than this.

Beauty Buys: Much love from Jakarta

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I went to Jakarta for a so-called school trip, I joined a competition. I didn't expect to shop as I assumed I won't be able to have as much time as I was given a packed schedule to begin with. But it turns out, I was able to free up so much more time to shop and explore a little bit of Jakarta. Though one of my biggest regret while in Jakarta is to not research any place that is worthwhile visiting other than shopping malls.

So here's the haul that I've bought during the whole trip while I was in Jakarta, believe me, I was very reserved and controlled during this trip as I don't really want to think about all the luggage that I have to bring.

New Look contact lenses - These were cheap quarterly colored contact lenses, I wish I bought more as they are around give or take $8-9 , I tried the one in Playful and it is very comfortable as well! I hope to go to Jakarta again soon to stock up on these as they were quite cheap!

Ardell duo eyebrow brush - This has been in my wishlist for sooo long, well, any duo brushes that has a spoolie and eyebrow liner brush as this is very useful for our eyebrow routine ;)

Masami Shouko 320 Round Synthetic Brush - This is a brush brand that I find to be only selling in Indonesia although it has a Japanese name, I am going to assume this is an Indonesian brand. It sells synthetic brushes for a very affordable price and I bought this for $8-9ish? If I were to know more about their quality, I could have bought more from they line. I'd definitely want to see how their eye brushes are as I find it much more affordable at around $4-5. But.. I didn't buy any :(

Bioderma Micellar Solution - I bought 2 sets of this, it is quite affordable for the price at $21, if only there is no limited budget or baggage, I'd haul more! These are my go-to cleansers for heavy makeups as they clean up so nicely.

Sephora Brightening & Hydrating Foundation - I'm not sure why I bought this as I don't need more foundation, well I just throw out some foundations and BB creams that are more than 3 years old, so I'm pretty much replacing them with this. I will review this as soon as I can wear this out more. 

Benefit Cosmetics Set in You go, gals & Feeling Cheeky - Benefit might be one of the most famous brand in the beauty world, they are by no means cheap, so I don't want to be disappointed so instead, I just bought those mini-sets to try out some of their products including the famous porefessional primer. I am also impressed by Benetint, although the texture and color payoff is the same as other red tints available, it has a powdery smell that I really love.

I'll try to post up as much reviews as I can with all the new pictures I've just prepared.

Make-up Review: Silkygirl Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm in Latte

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

So, found out that Silkygirl finally jumps into the pencil balm bandwagon, I went to their stand a couple of times, undecided whether to buy or not. Since they are affordable, then why not? They have 6 shades, I guess? But I chose the shade Latte as I think I've bought too much bright lip shade these few months. So transitioning to a neutral nude color is a nice change of pace to my obsession with purple/wine lip colors although the line actually produces a wine lip color, but I'll buy that soon.

So they are basically the usually twist up pencil lipbalm you see in other brands such as Revlon, Clinique, Tarte and some others. I really love the black packaging though, it looks so chic to me and you would be able to know the

The color that I can describe her is a pinky-beige nude. The color is nude enough but still has that pink tone to not make my lips look like I applied a concealer on it. The color is a little sheer and the texture is very creamy but at first swipe but you can layer it on, to be more pigmented.

The color lasts about 2-3 hours before it disappears but I don't have any problem with that as this is a dream to apply. There's nothing extraordinary about these balms, it's just your normal pencil lip balm. Although, if you want to compare this to Catrice's pencil lip balm, I do prefer Silkygirl's as these are much more moisturizing.

Make-up Review: NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Black/Grey

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I may be on a roll here by posting up more reviews than I'd ever imagine in a month, lol. I have a few weeks to my exams, since we're basically on a holiday, my mind is also on holiday. Oh, well. I do my brows everyday, almost everyday. So finding a good brow product is quite important for me and I am still looking for the best eyebrow product and brush for the perfect or au naturel look. LOL.

The thing about me is when choosing my eyebrow products, I'd like it if the color of those eyebrow pencils, powders or crayons to be almost the same as my eyebrow hair color which is basically black, I love to make bold eyebrow looks as it fits my overall makeup. Hence the color chosen.

It does seem scary at first, the colors, but I somehow really love it. Because the colors fits what I want in my eyebrow look.

Both powders are pigmented on their own, if I want to do a full on makeup, I usually use the black powder to create the shape of my eyebrows and fill it in with the grey powder. If I want a natural day-to-day look, I just basically use the grey powder all over. Either way both colors are very versatile on their own. It is easily blended so you can brush off the sharp lines. The wax is somewhat so-so, it does keep your eyebrow in place and set it. I don't really use the wax all that much.

All in all, this is a good product to have and it lasts long too, around 6-7 hours before it starts fading. This is something that I might repurchase if there is no other that does well. Next eyebrow product that I'll review, inshaAllah will be the Ardell duo eyebrow brush and Anastasia Beverly Hill famous Dipbrow Pomade!

Make-up Review: Essence All About Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another Essence review! This time it is the new All About Nude palette, which is a new release from Essence. Although it is the same price as their 8-shadow palette but I am glad that they didn't include those eyeshadow applicators that are pretty much useless from my point of view. I didn't get to compare this with the old palette, but they pretty much have the same size but more compact and thinner.

This palette contains 6 shadows that are pink-toned neutral colors of shimmers, mattes and satin. These shadows are really nice compared to the old palettes as I can see the quality is higher and creamier.

The swatch shown is with and without primer, as you can see the colors are pigmented if you have a base underneath it and this is fine by me as I use eye primer every time I want to wear eyeshadows. The colors are quite versatile to give you a neutral day time look to a neutral night time. But it also can give you a little drama.

I brought this to Jakarta with my on my trip there, I seem to have this habit to wear full makeup everyday although I will still just go for a very minimal neutral look, usually with a pop of color or a jazz of dark shadow below the waterline. This is an ultimate lovely palette for me

Make-up Review: Catrice Limited Edition Matchpoint Blush Stick in C02 Rockby

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Here's a review from a brand I don't usually feature in my blog, just because I love their sister brand, Essence so much. I have my experiences with the cream blushes, first from Essence and then Bourjois but I've never encountered a blush stick before.

I am currently crazy picking out purple products except for eyeshadows as I see them as a color that exudes edgy but yet sophisticated look.

The blush stick from Catrice is housed in a simple twist tube, I love the design on the packaging but unfortunately it wores off easily. The color itself is red wine purple and I guess I am actually using Pantone's Color of the Year which is Marsala for 2015. 

As you can see from the swatch, it applies sheer but the color can be buildable, it is quite creamy in texture and it is not sticky. Although when blended it gives a plummy color. If without setting the blush with a setting powder, this will probably last me around 2-3 hours, but if I set it, it could last me around 5-6 hours.

I may not buy more of these blush sticks as I think cream blushes are hard to be on point with me. I do love to wear this sometimes. Most of the time, I actually use this blush as a lipstick instead of a blush. A repurchase? Maybe not, I'd look into other brand and see how they fare with this.

Beauty Buys: A long time ago

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I have been neglecting and I don't know how to make it up to you, I will try my best to plague you girls with more hauls and reviews as I am quite naughty these past few weeks! I went to Jakarta a week ago, during my exam period believe that! It sucks to shop while you're thinking about your exams, I could've grabbed those Nike shoes cuz it's just way cheaper there.. Dang it. But I'll post  some of my hauls soon as I get it from the camera.

Anyways, I managed to grab some hauls from Shop@Sarah, Paloma and the usual Guardian. This is the first time I actually hauled from Shop@Sarah, I was pretty desperate looking for a purple lip product so I decided to buy the butter lip glosses from NYX. The rest was basically an impulse buy although for the eyebrow brush it is pretty much a necessity.

Then I went to Paloma and bought more purple-based lip colors and a cream stick blush that is just so purple from Catrice as I know I should explore this brand more, so far, their lip products are not disappointing. Also, indulged in the new palette from Essence, I seriously am surprised with the new palette as it shows different quality from the previous palettes

And then, I bought one of their gel eyeliner which is basically my favorite product from them. This is merely a repurchase but of different color so I won't be reviewing that. But I'll try to review them as soon as I can, as I've already prepared the pictures.
