[REVIEW] 3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquer #BonBon

Hi!~

I've tried most of the stuff in my haul, and I'm back with some reviews of the cosmetics (skincare stuff will take awhile longer ^^)


I got the Style Nanda 3 Concept Eyes Lip Lacquer in Bon Bon because Show Time was out of stock :( I very much wanted Show Time because its a lovely bright colour! This was my second choice because I don't own any lip lacquer or lipstick in this colour at the moment. Its a cute little bottle that will fit most makeup pouches!

I like how its pretty nude but orange-y! Suits days with heavier eye-makeup :)

Without flash, cos I don't take pictures with flash anyway :P

Left: a thick swatch
Right: a little bit of product, blended out.

The colour payoff is great!




Some images from their website for your reference. ^^

My take is that this is not exactly what I thought it was. I thought it would be creamy and pigmented and long-lasting. Turns out, it actually dries to a matte and overly powdery finish. Yes, its really pigmented and creamy for a liquid lip product. However, that powdery feeling on my lips made it feel dry and weird. It also worn off after an hour in SG's humid weather. I'm not sure if it because that this is a light colour, but it settles into my lip lines (while the rest was worn off) so it looked really uneven and make my lips dry and chapped. I guess it would be perfect for wear when you wanna have a quick photo with  nicely coloured lips but this lippy will not last the day. Definitely a very nice colour, but texture wise, you'd have to get used to it or don't get it at all. I wouldn't have got it if I can turn back the clock (LOL). It made my diligent-nightly-lip-moisturizing routine go to waste in just a day!!! 

Pretty disappointed since I've been excited to try 3 Concept Eyes stuff. And the first item I picked had to disappoint. Sigh.

  1. The colours look SO pretty! But I agree, I hate lip products that dry powdery... make the lips feel so dry and uncomfortable :(. Great post though!

    1. I have not particularly came across any drugstore brand that makes it in this color and texture, but this nude color is not hard to find I believe :) Setting with loose powder would probably mattify it :P

[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…

[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…

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! :)

Begin your comment with WTB (want to buy) or WTS (want to sell) for easier reference!
