Lip Treat: Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon

Hola, here’s my lip colour for the week! Introducing the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon!




Colour: A coral shade, similar to fruit punch and does indeed bear resemblance to watermelon juice, like its namesake.

Texture: Smooth, like a tinted lip balm. Goes on a bit sheer, and is moisturising. I apply two layers.

Scent: A peppermint scent that fades off quickly once you apply it.

Packaging: Cardboard tube with floral prints. Pretty!

Wear time: As this is a sheer lipstick, you would need to reapply after meals and after you drink from a mug. Doesn’t affect me too much because I tend to drink water through a straw now during the day.

Where: Purchased from Sephora, at SGD $26.

Pros: I like the fresh colour and balm-like sheer texture. It makes for easy wearing on casual days!

Cons:

– It has a peppermint scent, but the scent goes away once you apply it.

– It is not long-lasting, because of its sheer texture.

Verdict: I enjoy using this lipstick because I love the fresh colour and the light texture. It is not long-wearing, but I still like it nonetheless!

Repurchase: Yes.

Note: All items are purchased by me, unless stated otherwise.

Introducing Tarte’s LipSurgence, in the shade named Escape.

Colour: A rose-pink shimmer, subtle and sheer tint. This can be layered to build colour.
Texture: Glides on smoothly, has hydrating oils to nourish lips. It feels like you’re wearing coloured lip balm. But it can feel a little oily if you apply more than one layer.
Scent: A peppermint scent.
Packaging: A twist stick lip tint. You twist the bottom part.
Wear time: The colour wouldn’t last for a long time, especially if you drink from your mug. But the hydrating oils still remained on my lips after I drank some water.
Where: Purchase it at Sephora
Repurchase?: I don’t recall the price, but this is quite a pricey lip tint to me. This wouldn’t be a priority repurchase for me.

Note: All items are paid for by myself. No items in my blog are sponsored, unless stated otherwise.

Merry Christmas!
Love, Neri.

Lip Treat: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, 415 Pink in the Afternoon

I finally got down to using my Revlon lipstick, it’s code name and number is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon. What a cute name. I like this subtle and fresh shade of pink. I quite like the idea of a natural looking nude or pink lip. This is close to my natural lip colour, so I call it MLBB! It means ‘My lips, but better’. This lipstick has a creme texture and is moisturising. I am not a fan of lipgloss because they feel quite sticky to me, so this is a good creme texture lipstick that I would use!

Name: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon

Colour shade: A light pink, it is fresh and subtle. Good for those with fair skin.

Price: I bought this some time back, under a buy 1 get 1 free deal. Pretty sweet deal. But a usual retail price, this should cost around $17 or $18 SGD, if I remember correctly. I bought mine from Watsons.

Repurchase?: YES. Definitely. It’s an affordable lipstick which you can get from any drugstore or departmental store that carries Revlon.

Til next time : )

Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Proof Any Cushion Foundation!

I attended a friend’s wedding, and I decided to try out the Etude House Lock ‘N Summer Proof Any Cushion Foundation, in W13, Natural Beige, for the first time! I recently bought it during my Korea trip in June. Here’s my take on it:

locknsummer

Packaging: Cute, white round compact, with a mirror and sponge
The sponge is on a holder, and does not touch the foundation part. Hygienic!

Foundation comes in a sponge form, you use the sponge to press the foam sponge and the foundation goes onto it!

Foundation is refillable, great idea.

Colour and scent: Lovely, light floral scent! I love it.
Coverage is medium, good if you don’t major blemishes to cover. Natural look.

Tried it, didn’t like it: K Palette 24hr 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner in SB101 Review

After hearing reviews about the K Palette 24hr 1 Day Tattoo WP Eyeliner in Superior Black 101, I decided to give it a go. But a 24 hours, 1 day tattoo? I think not. It lasted only 5 minutes for me. Perhaps I have slightly oily lids (sensitive combination skin) and the humid weather in Singapore is a factor too, but I was disappointed by the eyeliner’s performance.

Within 5 minutes of walking outside, the eyeliner smudged onto my top part of the eyelids.

The item’s claim to fame: thin felt-tip brush, waterproof, smudgeproof

My verdict: Disappointing performance, probably better suited for dry climates!

Repurchase?: No, I would not repurchase. 20140623-175947-64787224.jpg20140623-180103-64863122.jpg
