Collection UK Bright & Glow Brightening BB Cream and Compact Foundation

It's always caught my attention and makes me wanna try out a base product (foundation/bbcream/CCcream), when it have Glow, Bright or dewy on the packaging... I love Korean's dewy (almost oily type of finishing) skin because, most base products make my skin look dry and a bit oily on the nose... so I envy Korean skin lor!! They look so radiance and healthy. I want that type of skin!!!!!!!

I just want foundation or BB cream that doesn't look dry on my skin! So when I received the latest Collection UK Bright & Glow Brightening BB Cream and Compact Foundation I was quite excited.... until I saw that I got shade 2 for the BB cream.. aiyo~ so dark how to make my skin bright leh! (I consider myself quite fair leh....)

Review : Belif Peat miracle revital cream

I have been rotating different types of moisturizers and creams before I had the skin allergic while having some issue with my eczema (immune system problem) back in late February 2014 (I know... all kinda of issus start showing up once immune system is going down right?!?!?

But this also kinda made me become extra careful on everythings... including cutting out all seafoods except fish... weekly visit to my TCM for acupuncture session. (Painful session, but it helps ALOT!)

Back to the subject... I stop using Belif Peat miracle revital cream because I wanna try out the Dr Qu Moisturizer (I'm glad I give it a try.. I love it!). Anyway, I should do a review on the Belif Peat miracle revital cream before I forgot how nice this cream feel on my skin.

Ingredients list



Pretty creamy, not too "watery" but spread out like smoothly and deliciously on the skin 



I have been using this cream for 2 week straight back in Jan.. before I start adding in serum and rotate with different moisturizer.
  • The cream is quite rich as compare to the normal gel cream consistency.. but once I spread out the cream on the skin, it feel moist, creamy and slightly oily .. but feel really nice and soothing on the skin.
  • Smell so nice and soothing
  • Doesn't cause any breaking-out
  • No irritation
  • Very moisturizing
  • Does has a slight stinging sensation on flakey broken skin
    (but it not that obvious that will make me stop using it)
  • Rich but doesn't feel too heavy on the skin
    To be honest... the finishing of this cream is not the favourite type for oily or combination skin... BUT I love the little dame/thick/oilyness of this cream .. cos it makes my skin feel really supple/soft/fine
  • A bit heavy, but doesn't feel too heavy to be use a day moisturizer/cream
    (Doesn't cause any issue with my foundation/bb cream/cc cream)
  • Does feel alittle bit oily
    (But once the cream absorbed into the skin, skin feel soft, supple and smooth)
After using this cream for a period of time of more then 3 to 4 weeks.. .skin feel fine in texture, smooth and supple. My skin look radiance and doesn't look too tired.

Just like their eyecream - feel really good on the skin and made skin care routine more enjoyable!


Belif always have good skincare products.. they always feels and smell good without stressing out the skin.

The Wet Brush - the healthy detangling hairbrush

I have really long hair and I have a habit of NOT combing my hair frequently - especially when my hair is wet to prevent breakage. When I normally use my fingers to comb thru my hair. I donno.. I just don't enjoy combing my hair!

But once a while I do love to use a brush like the one shown below to massage my scalp .. feel really nice to release a bit of tension.

Anyway, when I received this "The Wet Brush" ... I thought that the bristles feel a little bit small and "sharp" (not chubby enough) .. surprisingly - the bristle "tip" doesn't feel sharp nor harsh on the scalp... it feels nice~

Review on the international award-winning formula Dr Qu Facial Cleanser

Cleansing is one of the most important step for a clean and healthy skin - our pores are mostly clogged from our own sebum releases and dead skin cell.. plus all the stuff we piled on our skin (skincare/makeup/doggies fur). Oh and finding the right cleanser for your skin type is as important too!

I have sensitive, combination skin (which tend to be a bit dry sometimes - my T-zone is a bit oily too) ... I cannot use cleanser that was meant for oily skin as it is too drying and it kinda irritate my skin too.

Anyway, my reason for this post is to share this amazing facial cleanser from Dr Qu!! Super love this - Dr Qu have really great skincare products (link)

Review - Belif Peat miracle revital eye cream

For those who read my blog since the beginning knew that eye cream is my absolute favourite skincare product.. I cannot live without this goodness!

I like trying "RICH" eye creams, because I need the richness of the cream plus the soothing ingredients to soothe my sensitive and itchy eyelids (I have eczema condition and without eyecream, my eyelids tend to get itchy easily - sad but true).

So in this post, I going to do a details review on the Belif Peat miracle revital eye cream - retailing at SD$71 (25ml) at all Belif outlets.




This little jar of eye cream is full of skin loving and soothing ingredients - The main herbs formula is Peat extract which contains humic acid which will restores the skin's natural turnover rate by revitalizing the skin and preventing skin inflammation and irritation at the same time!
 

 Read more about Belif Peat Miracle revital skincare (LINK)







The cream is a gel cream consistency - look thick and less "watery"


I used up this jar of 25ml in 5 to 6 weeks - Normally a 15ml eyecream can last up to 2-3months. But since I was having some skin issue back in March - (dryness and swollen eye lids due to skin allergies - and this eyecream worked magic!)

  • The eye cream is quite rich in texture - but not too oily like "cream" type of eye cream, this is more of a gel cream consistency. Does feel a little bit oily.. but the feeling is quite soothing and it spread out nicely around the sensitive skin and doesn't cause more irritation.
  • No seeds around the eyes, no irritation and of-course doesn't cause any breaking-out
  • The cream feel very hydrating
  • Very soothing
  • About aweek of using - the flakey skin on my eyelids start to soften and go back to the skin original "texture"
  • Does soften the dry fine lines under my eyes
  • I still see dark circles - I think it does somewhat kinda reduce the darkness on my undereyes
    (but that wasn't my main concern when I choose eye cream - I need soothing and rich eye cream to moisturize my sensitive and itchy eyelids)
  • Does has a very nice and soothing scent 
I really really enjoy using this eyecream.. I used about a few times each day during the first week (just to soothe the dry flakey skin) and then reduce to twice each day (day and night~).

All the soothing and amazing herbs and ingredients does help to soothe my sensitive and problematic skin! So thanksful that I have this during my "down" skin period and this doesn't cause more problems to my already trouble skin!!

Belif always have good soothing products - I love the Belif Peat Miracle revital cream too- will do a review on that soon!

Clio Gelpresso glow tint in Flat Pink and Killheel Red (Swatches)

A new kissable lips product from CLIO - Gelpresso glow tint - a lip tint that gives your pout a jelly-like finish and also contains lotus extract to moisturize and protect the lips. A non-sticky, non-greasy gloss that is dispensed by twisting the bottom part of the lipstick container.

Just like their Gelpresso eyeliner (gel liner in the pencil body) - Gelpresso glow tint is a tinted lip gloss in the lipstick body (fun right~ not messy and easy to apply~)


Over here, I received Flat Pink and Killheel Red - totally love flat pink (my type of shade - I love pale pastel coral pink color for my lips.. look natural and NOT too loud for me)


The lipstick tube make application a breeze ~ I very much prefer it to be this type of applicator then the doe foot applicator wand.






Ingredients list

 Beautiful shade - alittle bit sheer for the "Flat Pink" when I apply on the lips 
(but over-all the shade was quite pigmented!)



Can tell from the lip's swatches that the glow tint is quite watery - doesn't enhance my dry lips.. made my lips feel moist, supple and soft~ Does has a bit of minty sensation (not too obvious kind)

Love this color - this a nude coral pink on my lips (very natural on me) When I blot off the color - my lips is beautiful tinted



Killheel red is much more pigmented and evenly spread out as compare to the lighter shade (Flat pink) .... Lips look moist, supple and soft
Surprisingly I do not feel weird in this orangey red~ Doesn't feel too loud on my and kinda make my skin look radiance~



Clio Gelpresso glow tint is available in 4 shades - retailing at SD$16.90 each at Selected Watsons in Singapore

  • No. 5 - Killheel Red
  • No. 4 - Wedge Orange
  • No. 3 - Enamel Pink
  • No. 1 - Flat Pink

Price : SD$16.90

The whole collection is filled with products that are suitable for "office" nothing too crazy and they feel and look so nice on any skin tones. So in this post, there's gonna be images heavy with products/swatches...



Elizabeth Arden NEW Flawless Finish Perfectly nude Makeup SPF 15 and Flawless Finish Correcting and highlighting Perfector (Swatches)

Recently, Elizabeth Arden launched a NEW Flawless Finish Perfectly nude Makeup SPF 15 and Flawless Finish Correcting and highlighting Perfector.


NEW
Flawless Finish Perfectly nude Makeup SPF 15

Available in 8 shades

I really enjoy using Elizabeth Arden base makeup, the foundation I tried before is LOVE~ (Link / Review)-  The new Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude has a very nice finish and texture~ Lightweight and feel quite nice on the skin.


The New Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup SPF 15 is a lightweight, breathable foundation that has a “second-skin” finishes look that lasts all day. Instantly reduce the appearance of pores and imperfections and skin looks healthy, natural and radiant.


Key Ingredients:
  • Hydro-pigment Technology:
    Pigments are enveloped by moisture-rich, plant based emollients that mimic skin’s flexibility and smoothness to provide a “second skin” feel. It delivers a makeup that is lightweight, color true and lasts all day.
  • Soy Lipid Technology:
    A proprietary blend of lipids helps reduce the appearance of pores by 20% over 4 weeks** and to perfect skin’s texture.
  • Natural Plant Extract:
    Seals in and helps preserve moisture so skin feels hydrated and emits a radiant glow.
  • Wild Mushroom Extract:
    A natural environmental protectant that works to immediately lock in moisture and help skin retain hydration throughout the day.
  • Vitamins C, E:
    A powerful blend of vitamins that help protect skin from environmental stressors that can cause visible signs of aging as well as visibly improves skin’s radiance.
  • Radiant Mineral Crystals: Illuminating soft focus mineral crystals blur the look of imperfections and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a radiant and luminous finish.


I will do a seperate review on this foundation - still need to test it out afew more times :)
I have try out the foundation for the first time at the blogger event (link)



Swatches




NEW
Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector
S$40.00
Available in 3 brightening shades

This luxuriously lightweight concealer pen is an instant pick-me-up that immediately erases signs of fatigue and restores skin to a radiant and rested glow.

With one sweep, Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector masks imperfections from dark circles and shadows to fine lines, blemishes and redness. The buildable, light-to-medium coverage formula is rich with hydrators, environmental protectants and reflective pigments that help correct problematic areas and highlight the contours of the face. The easily blendable formula works with all skin types and is suitable for the delicate skin around the eyes.

Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector is housed in a convenient and portable gold click pen with a soft tip brush tip for complete control and precise application.


Key Ingredients:
  • Wu Zhu Yu Plant:
    A natural plant derivative that helps enhance brightness, radiance and luminosity of the skin.
  • Moisturizers & Emollients:
    Immediately moisturizes skin and offers a flexible barrier to help protect against environmental stressors.
  • Soft Focus Microspheres:
    A blend of spherical technology ingredients that help blur imperfections and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a radiant and luminous finish.
  • Mica:
    A pearlized mineral that illuminates and brightens the skin.
  • Vitamin E:
    A powerful environmental protectant that moisturizes and helps protect the skin



These are a bit too sheer to be a concealer so I say go with the one that is near to your skintone and use it as brightening/highlighting pen~  The salmon and pink shades may work well on darker skin tone.


Elizabeth Arden NEW Flawless Finish Perfectly nude Makeup SPF 15 and Flawless Finish Correcting and highlighting Perfector is available at all Elizabeth Arden Beauty Counter from April 2014 onwards.
