New Makeup Pick!Thursday, January 15, 2015
First up is this Baby Lips from Maybelline. I been wanting to try this for so longgg… For certain reason I find the Baby Lips font is very catchy and cute… I also like the simple design of the lip balm with the wording cap…
I got the watermelon flavour but when apply on don’t really taste watermelon… I do like the subtle fuchsia colour it give to my lip but not really as moisturising as I expect. It feel like a layer of watermelon candy run through my lip… This lip balm can be wear alone as it give a pop of fuchsia colour on the lip but quite light in colour. So if you want a fuller lip or bolder colour you have to use a lipstick. Sometime I use this as a base colour and top it up with a sheep lip gloss it turn out quite pretty.
So here is me wearing the Baby Lips alone…
close up.. It look quite light and sheer but if you top it up with lip gloss it will look much nicer!
Now let me show you with a lip gloss on………
Now you wonder which lipgloss that I am using? It’s the Hotlight Lipgloss from Collection Cosmetic in Star shade. It has this pretty milky light pink in gold dust, a nice shade for holiday.
I love how convenient this lipgloss is because it does not only come with mirror but also LED light…. Even if you are in a pitch black place you still can touch up your lip! How nice is that?
The colour look really pretty when swatch on hand but sadly it’s too sheer that it does not look good on my dark lip…. Also, I don’t quite the funny smell of the brush even though the brush hair is really soft.
So this is how the lip gloss look on me..
close up it look really sheer.. I do think this is good to go as a topper on your matte lipstick to add a shine to your look or to plump up the lip for a sexy finish!
Also have this Dolly Wink Eyeliner in Black which is my new favourite now! Absolutely easy to control and dry very fast. It gives a matte jet black finish which is what I always love to have when using eyeliner. The packaging look sweet and adorable in pink and purple polka dots…. Loving the waterproof formula as it last for almost a day with only a slight smudge on the inner corner of my oily eye lid…
The tip is really sharp where you can draw thin line and thick line. I find drawing thin and medium line is easy but for thick line might be a little tiring because need to continuously fill up the gap.
Here it is on my eye… So pretty isn’t it?
So here is my final look using Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner and Collection Cosmetic Hotlight Lipgloss.
Lastly we have this nail polish from Maybelline.. A very striking colour and I would prefer to use this on my toe.. Just my preference. I find the texture a little to watery but the colour still opaque.
The brush size are pretty standard and quite easy to swipe on my nails.. Not too big so it’s quite perfect for my nail size.
So on first swipe remember to swipe the brush on the bottle to not take too much product else you will end up colouring the edge and get messy. With one coat it’s pretty opaque but I prefer to put on two layer instead.
