Trilogy – Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

My photos taken might not be the best so pls bear with me :).

Bought this oil sometimes last year or earlier this year. A bottle of 45ml/1.52 fl oz.. Costed me more or less about HKD500. Do not remember the exact price as it’s been awhile.

I found that it was quite costly for me and I took a week to decide if I should really go ahead and make the purchase or not. I read many positive reviews about it and then I went back to purchase in hope that it would help me with some brown spots on my skin. Which the sales lady promised that it will (at least 50-60% reduction in colour of spots was told). I used it religiously for a couple of months and it made not a slightest difference to my brown spots on my face.

Surely it does well moisturise the skin. I always used it on my moist skin n let it air dry, for it to soak in the skin better. But, if I use it too many days in row then it does tend to break out the skin a bit.

I will not purchase it again for myself as it did not serve the purpose I bought it for. Results may vary from person to person though, depending on your skin type I suppose. I prefer using other much affordable oils as an alternative, for instance baby oil, almond oil, avocado oil or even olive oil etc just the same way (on my still moist skin to help with dryness whenever I need or as often as I feel like).

These are much more affordable and works just as well. But, yes if you do not mind spending that much money on it for just the same benefits then you should surely give it a try. It does last a long time as you are using very little each time.

There are cheaper rosehip oil options from various other companies too. Which will provide you with the same benefits.
Benefits & Uses written on the bottle :
Nourishes and Repairs

How to use :

Do not use to broken skin.

bareMinerals marvelous MOXIE (lip gloss – 70863 HIGH ROLLER)

Lip gloss is actually very nice, love the tingling and minty feeling that it gives when you put it on. Very refreshing and goes on very smoothly. The color is also great!!

The downfall is the packaging, it somehow leaks and leaving everything dirty and messy within seconds.  It’s very, very messy!

It doesn’t stop leaking, I have to keep on wiping it with tissue paper or sometimes I leave it wrapped in the tissue paper and find the tissue paper all moist after sometime.

I definitely cannot put it in my bag or the makeup kit.  So, I left it in my work drawer in a little tray which was then found all dirty and stained after a day.  Then I thought it would be wiser to make it stand so it won’t leak so easily, I stood it on my work table.  It stained my corkboard and the wall that covers the table 😥 too.

Bhangra Make-up Look

Last time when I worked with Funjabi Entertainment (which is a Bhangra Group in Hong Kong and they provide traditional Punjabi Bhangra, Dhol and DJ in Hong Kong/China), they were taking part in a competition held by ATV – a local broadcasting channel. We created a look which was matching with their outfit colors and which was very bright (yellow and purple with gold glitters).

It was a really fun look which could be worn on many occasions (where heavy makeup is required). It is a very strong look as of course it was for an Indian Bhangra Group. When you hear that word Indian/Bollywood it’s all about bling bling……. and it’s always beautiful and fun. Don’t we all agree on that????

Why am I telling you guyz all this information is because I’d like to re-create that look, which would be soon.
Some of you might be wondering what is Bhangra????

Bhangra is a beautiful form of expression, a celebration of life, performed with overwhelming and infectious energy. For more information pls check the link here http://nonstopbhangra.ning.com/page/what-is-bhangra. It’s explained very nicely here.

Bhangra is also a very nice total body and mind workout. Feels fantastic after each class.

It’s enormously helpful in losing weight and keeping fit.

Another great thing is that Funjabi Entertainments offer free Bhangra classes for adults/children. You can contact them to find out more details.

SASA BRAND LIPSTICKS

Have any one of you tried the Sasa brand lipstics??? I was quite skeptical to try them at first and one fine day I took the courage and bought 2 colors, and pretty bright colors too. They are in-fact pretty nice. They are quite long lasting, glossy and moisturizing.

They are not so costly either (I lost the receipt but each lipstick was closer to HKD50.00 +-). If, you just wanna give a go to a new lip color or something…..you can definitely try them. Or, just to expend your lip color collection you could pick a few (1 or 2 even) when you are in shoppy, shoppy mood and that too without making a hole in your pocket.

Colors that I bought are Aqua Fuchsia 03 and Ruby Red 01.

They’ve also got some nice hearts on the lipstick tubes :).

Sexy Hot Red Lips

SEXY HOT RED LIPS

I have tried and tested so many different reds for so many years and from so many different brands. Nothing has shocked me in the way Lady Danger from MAC had. I just bought this yesterday evening and I can’t seem to look at myself without having this pretty color on my lips. I simply LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!!!!! It’s a Tomato red and looks so pretty on my tanned skin (at least I think so…hehehehe).

I would highly recommend this red to people with tanned skin like mine. Not stating that it wouldn’t look nice on other skin tones…it would look equally good on everyone. It’s just rare to find such a pretty tone for tanned skins, which would make you look brighter rather than putting years to your face.
I have not worn any heavy makeup on my face and the pics are just taken with my phone just on the way to my workplace this morning. Below is the description to makeup I’ve worn on the rest of my face if you are interested to know. Cheers!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

1. Liquid foundation mixed on my palm with my moisturizer and applied to my face.
2. Pressed powder then applied with a powder blush (very lightly).
3. Black mascara applied to my lashes.
4. And lips “lady danger” from MAC is applied.

Total time spent 3-4 minutes!!!

EYE M GLAM AND B-DAZZLE

EYE M GLAM AND B-DAZZLE

 
 

Item 1

EYE M GLAM

It is a highlighter that you can use to highlight the areas on your face (e.g., cheekbones, bridge of nose, browbone or the tear duct area) or anywhere you wanna highlight.

EYE M GLAM is custom blended by Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic.  It is a universal shade that is flattering on all skin tones (dark to pale).

I absolutely love this product there is nothing else like it…this is a must have in my kit (can’t live without it since I had it).

This is nothing over the top or crazy…it looks very, very natural. 

But, sometime I find it a little bit hard to blend…it’s probably coz it’s so fine in texture and wherever your brush lands first it leave a bit more product then the other areas….so, u kindda have to make a bit more effort to blend it well.

If you are also using it, please share your tips or reviews here with me.

B-Dazzle

To be honest…I haven’t used it much so far…coz most of my work is done with the EYE M GLAM…I hardly reach for it.

But, I think that’s just me….this is a great product too.  I have no complaints so far.

Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadows

Hello Fellas,

How are you??

There are several posts over the internet to express  so many peoples love for Sugarpill.  I am just one more person who couldn’t hold back the urge to do so. I can’t stress enough how good these eye shadows are.  I don’t have much of their loose shadows but ALL of their pressed shadows.  I love ’em all, they are matte, super pigmented and got great staying power. 

They are so BIG in size.

They are the same exact size as the Makeup Forever Eyeshadows.   You can see them in my Makeup Forever palett.  I ordered them in their original 4-color  palettes the “Burning Heart” and “Sweetheart” and got the Bulletproof seperately.  And, depoted them from the 2 palettes.

The 2 Palettes were USD34.00/each and Bulletproof alone USD12.00

How to Beautify your eyes

Don’t we all wonder how to make our eyes look attractive and sexy.  Sometime to impress our boy friend, husband or just to look good during an event or just to look pretty for no particular reason (but for ourselves).  

There are various ways to do it and most of all you have to practice and find the right technique that suits your needs. This is only a list of things from where you can pick a few tricks and use ‘em.

1.

Always curl your lashes before wearing mascara

2.

Use a light colored shadow near the inner corner of your eye

3.

Use a flesh colored liner in the water line to give the your eyes the appearance of looking big. 

The flash colored liner looks more natural on medium-dark skins and white liner works pretty well for fair skin.

4.

Define your eye-brows well.  Keeping your eye-brows properly defined and in shape opens up the whole eye area and makes the eyes really pop.

5.

Cover up the dark circles around the eyes well using concealer.

Asian skins : use ‘yellow color’ based concealer

Caucasian skins or someone who has cool under-tone : use ‘pink or salmon color’ based

6.

Only lightly dust the loose powder on. Avoid too much powder in this area, otherwise you end up looking cakey.

7.

Use concealer on both top and bottom of the eyes. As Asian (medium to darker) skin tones tend to have heavier dark circles on the eye lids as well.

8.

On special occasions or whenever you prefer you can wear false lashes.  They make the eyes look really exotic and gorgeous (especially the individual lashes). The strip lashes are easier to apply and where the individual lashes need more practice.

9.

And, most important always smile and be happy that makes our eyes more beautiful then any make-up techniques on earth would.

Fucia/Purple Nail Polish

I am loving this color, so I thought I’d share with you guyz.  This is super cheap nail polish my mom randomly bought at SaSa in Wanchai  for HKD9.00  only.
 

It dries really fast and with such a beautiful sheen.  It’s as long lasting on the nails as the Revlon Nail Polishes.
