Hoola ~!

As you guys know, Canmake is a popular drugstore brand from Japan, known with their best-selling blushers (cheek duo/cream cheek). But today i want to review about their lipgloss, which is Canmake Candy Wrap Lip. I saw this lipgloss on Watsons Singapore, they were having discount. I need pink-coloured lipgloss because i have thrown the Etude one.(it has expired-lol) . So i had to buy the Canmake lip gloss while it was in discount. I also got attempted by the word 'candy'  :P . I chose 01 Sugar Love.

The lipgloss costs me S $12(normal price is S $16). There were like 6 colours at first but then they expand the colours until 12. You can check it here . By the way this lipglosses are already seen in Popteen magazine few times.

What it claims :

  • Colorful and sweet like candy.
  • Color looks the same on your lips as it does in the tube. With masses of beauty essence to moisturize your lips.
  • Vivid color x moisture retention.
  • Achieve vivid color and moisture simultaneously.
  • A moist finish, as though you have wrapped your lips in a colorful veil of moisture.
  • Restrained use of lamé and pearl.
  • A rich, jelly-like♪ finish, without being dazzling.
  • There’s no need to be worried about lamé particles making your lips feel rough or leaving a residue on your lips after  removing your make-up.
  • Smooth, non-sticky texture.
  • Contains a light-feeling oil that reduces the stickiness usually associated with lip gloss, achieving a light, smooth texture on application.
  • Just one coat will spread evenly over your lips.
  • Packed with moisturizing agents and beauty essence.
  • Moisturizing agents: Hyaluronic acid, Squalane, Honey and royal jelly extract

  • The lipglosses come in a plastic tube with a mettalic cap. Personally i love the packaging, The scalloped lace and the  flowers design make the packaging looks girly. It has a doe-foot wand applicator which makes application easier.

    The colour is just a medium sheer pink (it has NO SHIMMER in it).  It has jelly-like texture, so it feels creamy and a little bit sticky on my lips. The lipgloss is very moisturizing. I wore it once when my lips were dry (i forgot to bring lipbalm, so i just wearing lipgloss -,-) My lips are feeling moisturized when it had worn off.

    Staying power is about 2-3 hours (without drink/eat). The lipgloss doesn't have any scent. I wish it does have a scent like candy T.T.

    NOTE : My lips are already pigmented , so the colour doesnt show up too much...

    Review Pictures :

    Pros ;
    - Cute packaging
    - Affordable
    - Moisturizing
    - Natural finish
    - Lightweight

    Cons :
    - Not long-lasting
    - A bit sticky

    Rating : 4/5
    Would you repurchase ? Yes, i love this lipgloss ! Probably i will pick up few more shades
    Overall, if you are looking for a lipgloss that gives you a natural finish and milky lips then i reccomend you to have this ! the price is also cheap, even a lot cheapier in Japan itself, and plus with the cute packaging.

    REVIEW : ETUDE HOUSE Look at My Lips Lipsticks

    Hello Guys !

    I just got back from getting sleepover at my cousin's house yesterday. As my apology for not blogging for a while , today i want to make a 3 posts in a row !

    First post is about Etude House with Look At My Lips series. I know most of people  have  known about this lipstick. But recently i've been wearing this 2 lipsticks a lot and i'm quite love it so i decided to review these.

    I got the lipsticks in #2 Runway Coral Orange and #3 Celeb Pop Pink. The normal price is IDR 100.000,-/ $10 (counter price). Luckily, there was promotion  few months ago where you can buy 3 products just  for IDR. 180.000,- / $18 so each product worth IDR 60.0000,- / $6 (Look At My lips lipstick, Look at My Eyes Eyeshadow, Juicy Pop Tube, Magic Tint Balm, Bee Happy Lip Balm) . I chose 2 lipsticks from Look at My lips and 1 eyeshadow from Look at My eyes (review coming soon!).

    The packaging is so-so, nothing special from it. It's just a pink metallic tube covered with hard plastic case. The cap unfortunately is always open itself especially the #3 one.

    The pigmentation is great. #2 is orange colour with a hint of coral. (okay this is the .....th i mention about coral lipstick. dont hate me will you ) i love this , it really suits  with my yellow skin tone. The shade is also wearable . #3 is a gorgeous pinkish-red colour. The colour is very bold, so if you want to achieve natural look, you can use the lipstick in the middle of your lips then spread the colour with your fingers.

    The lipstick glides smoothly on my lips. The texture is creamy. The formula is a bit drying, so i put lipbalm first before apply the lipstick. Staying power is not bad. But you have to reapply after drink/eat.

    Review Pictures :



    Pros :
    Pigmentation great
    So many colors to choose
    Glides easily on lips 

    Cons :
    Have to reapply after eat/drink
    The formula is a bit drying 

    Rating : 3.5/5
    Would you repurchase? Nope , i will buy another lipsticks..
    Overall , i wouldnt reccomend to those who have chapped dry lips. What i love from these lipsticks are the  pigmentation. They. It has a matte finish but not drying at all.

    QUICK REVIEW : VICTORIA SECRET Love Spell Eau de Toilette

    Hello again ~

    Today i want to make this quick review before i study for my 2 last exams. As you know, Victoria Secret has opened their first store in Indonesia at Plaza Senayan few months ago. I was given one of their Eau de Toilette from my friend as my 17th birthday. Last year, i bought the body lotion in Love Spell. The sales lady mentioned it was the best selling fragrance from all. And i love it very much XD Luckily, my friend gave me the same fragrance >.<  Thanks my dear !

    The scent  is combination of cherry blossom and peach, that's what they say in the box. I don't like vanilla scented things or things that smell too sweet , and this has neither of those so i love it . The scent is not too powerful and great for summer. The lasting power is ok , it fade away after few hours. I always bring this everywhere since the size is 30 ml.

    Review pictures

    Overall i love this scent, so i will repurchase once this one is empty.

    And you know what ? Victoria Secret has just released Love Spell as an Eau de Perfume ! I knew this from The Muse

    REVIEW : SKIN79 All Day Sun Powder

    Hoola !

    I've passed this week by taking final exams , and 2 more days before freedom ! After that , i will post more than this.

     I can't leave a foundation/bb cream stay alone on my face without setting it with my powder. I have such bad oily skin,very very oily like i put a cooking oil into my face. I was looking for a good loose powder in online shop, and i found SKIN79 All Day Sun powder. The owner of the online shop said that this was best for daily wear with average spf and mattifies your oily skin. Especially this powder comes with a glam packaging and contains diamond particles to make your skin bright  ! So, why not ? It's ready stock, so i decided to buy it for IDR 150.000 rupiah/ $15.

    Seriously , I think SKIN79 all day sun powder win for the best powder packaging !

    Anyway , when i swatched it in my hand, there are some tiny shimmer particles on it. But don't worry it won't showed at all on your face. The powder is very lightweight, like most loose powder are. It comes with only one shade. The powder is very light at first, but it will blend naturally . I think those who have dark skin tone even the medium one might not suitable wearing this though the powder is slightly translucent.

    What i like from this powder is it really gives my skin very smooth,bright and matte finish. Oh and i also like the light smell , which kind of floral-ish. The coverage is fine (medium) as  i dont have too much spots on my face lol.

    The puff is inside of the cap, so you have to twist the cap first (the cap and the puff stick together btw). The puff is good but i prefer using brush to apply it on my face since the puff's shape is round not flat. But the good thing is  you can take the puff out and clean it as much as you want.

    Since it's a sun powder, it has SPF 30 which is a huge plus from this powder. The powder contains 13 g , which is quite a lot.

    Unfortunately , this powder doesn't stay long , my face became oily again after 2-3 hours. Maybe it's a different case if you have dry skin. So i'm going to use it as finishing powder.

    Review pictures :

    Pros :
    - lightweight
    - gives my skin bright
    - Mattifies my oily skin (for a while)
    - Has a good fragrance
    - Makes my skin smooth
    - Doesn't clog my pores
    - Has SPF 30
    - Elegant packaging

    Cons :
    - Doesn't last long (2-3 hours)
    - too light for mid-dark skin tone.
    - The price might be a little bit pricey for someone else

    Rating : 4.5/5
    Would you repurchase ? i dont think so , maybe i will find another powder with a good staying power..
    Overall , this powder is better than i expected. This is a good mattifying loose powder for everyday, but since i have an extreme oily skin and it doesn't do too much about the oil control, i use it as a finishing powder. I feel not wearing anything because the texture is light :)
