Let’s talk about Liquid-Matte Lip Colors.
I love using liquid-matte lip colors for various reasons.
1. Easy application
2. Stays put
Today, I will be comparing 3 brands of Liquid-Matte Lip Color products.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – Obession
1. Highly pigmented
Left: Sephora Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color – Orchid Luster
Right: Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain – Crimson Crush & Polished Purple
I love Sephora lip products; it never ceases to amaze me.
1. Many colors to choose from
2. Highly pigmented & long-wear
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Transylvania
This NYX product disappointed me. The product dried blotchy on my lips.
2. Many colors to choose from
3. Highly affordable
I apologize for the non-existent posts lately so here I am to do a post about the products that I am currently using for my eyebrows.
Eyebrows are extremely important (at least to me). Eyebrows can change your age, make-up look, mood, etc. Some days, I like thicker brows, while some; I like my brows ‘slender’. None the less, I have been using Anastasia products for the past month and I have been quite satisfied with the goods.
Perfect Brow Pencil – Dark Brown
I primarily use this pencil for those quick brow applications. You know, those days when you wake up and you need some ‘brows’ before you head out for some errands. I find this pencil super easy to use and it blends really well. When I say ‘super easy to use’, you do not need to apply meticulous precision to shape out your brows or spend a lot of time blending out the color. You just need to apply it, brush out the beginning of your brow and you’re good to go.
Brow Wiz Skinny Brow Pencil – Dark Brown
I use this pencil when I want a more unified and clean-cut look. This pencil, by any means, is not hard to use either but it’s just that the tip is wonderfully skinny; it allows awesomely nice sharp outlines to be created. Some days, I like to apply this skinny brow pencil to the tail of my brow and use the regular pencil to fill in the rest.
Brow Powder Duo – Dark Brown
After mentioning the two different pencils that I use, this powder duo is like the ribbon that goes on top of an awesomely wrapped gift. This powder can be worn alone or it can be used as a filler to fill out those sparse areas. After using either perfect brow pencil or brow wiz, I like to brush out my brows and then go back in there with this powder duo set to soften and ‘naturalize’ my brows.
I am still on the lookout for ‘the shade’.
So I’ve decided to do a simple eye makeup look.
I want to create different looks with different colors while using the same strategy that I used to create this.
Hope you guys enjoy !
P.S I am thinking purple for the next one.
I did a quick makeup look inspired by Canada’s birthday.
Hope you guys like it =)
I did a quick video on this make-up look.

I finally bought myself a lovely shade of coral for my lips. Again, this is not really a haul, just some things that I wanted to try out. My current concealer isn’t that great (it’s the Cover Girl one). So, I decided to try Revlon. I have used Revlon products on a couple of photo-shoots before and the quality was not bad at all. And of course, I loveeeee DollyWink! It gives me great lengths on my eyelashes but sometimes, the volume that I want is not all there. So I purchased the Volum’Express Mascara.
P.s. As I was writing this post, I realized that the mascara I have bought is in “Glam Brown”. Stupid as I am, I will have to go and exchange it for the Black. =(
I haven’t really bought anything (personal goodies) for a while, and so I decided to make a little purchase. I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and bought a couple of things.
I really like the Quo Primer (bought it many times before), so I bought it again. I wanted a nice light sunscreen for my face and so I decided to try the La Roche-Posay Face Sunscreen with 60 SPF. So far? the fluid sunscreen is not thick or hard to apply. It actually blends really nicely. (I figured, hey… I should start protecting my skin to prevent dark spots, aging, etc).
Then I headed over to Sephora because I wanted a BB Cream. I know I know, that there are tons of BB creams (in fact, there are CC creams now). I picked up the Diorskin Nude BB Creme in 002. I love it. I mean, I’ve used the Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation before and it was lovely (I am a huge fan of Dior cosmetics). This BB creme is not thick or hard to apply. I find it really hydrating and light. It gives off this nice dewy finish.
And as you know Sephora lovers, you always get a free sample at the end of your purchase. They gave me a sample of the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. I know that the Boscia Black Mask works rather well, so I am going to see how great this cleanser is.
I can’t remember if I had mentioned that I have had complications to my skin (particularly on my face) a while back. Yes, it was eczema. My doctor told me it was because of the sudden weather change between China and Vancouver. (I had a vacation back in September 2011 for a month and I broke out with eczema a couple days after my arrival back in Vancouver). Anyways, it was all good because my doctor told me to think of it as a face-peel (haha, he is a pretty cool guy). So, my face is normal again (sentence sounds odd, I know) but once in a while when it’s a little more dry in the air, a bit of the eczema will happen (moisturize baby!).
The other day, I figured that I was perhaps ready for tinted moisturizer (less dry for my skin). So, I took a trip to Sephora and purchased this tinted moisturizer from the brand “Hourglass” and the product is called “Illusion Tinted Moisturizer”. It’s a couple of days since I have started using this product and so far, so good (knock on wood).
All in all, a little does go a long way, so half a pump will be enough for coverage. I mainly just use it on my T zone area (redness), around the mouth (darker) and a little under my eyes.
BTW, did I mention that this product does not contain:
