[SWATCHES] Etude House Face Designing Brightener


Also (again) part of the Lovely Doll Collection by Etude House, is this super lovely looking highlighter! It was a new shade in addition to an existing product, which is the Face Designing Brightener. The first one was actually a light beige shade, which gives a soft focus kinda highlight and it looks super natural! Not that it isn't pigmented, it was more of a buildable kind of colour.

The one on the left is the initial shade which is "smooth face" and the one in a lovely lavender colour is in the shade "dolly face".

Here's a swatch!

When swatched heavily, and when blended out.
#dolly face is definitely brighter than #smooth face.

It gives a nice sheen! I feel that the pieces of glitter are reaaaaally small and that makes it really natural! Personally, I don't use highlighters a lot, but a lighter shade of foundation as it gives a super natural tint instead of glitters. I tried this for a few days and it actually brightens my complexion! Not that I'm paid to say this, but I really think this highlighter hits the spot!

I tried both when I work and I think it lasts pretty long.. about 5 hours I guess? Then I would have to touch-up. I prefer the purple one though ^^

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*

It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*

It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

Buy & Sell Hello Kitty plushies!!

Hahaha okay so I received over 10 emails on whether I have an extra Macdonald's Hello Kitty to let go or not. Fact is that I didn't buy any >.< So I decided to create a blog post where you Kitty collectors can interact and hopefully get a reply from a potential buyer/seller. Simply comment on this post! :)

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…
