(Sponsored Review) Fallin’ in love with Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Stick

Besides focusing on my eyes, pretty-looking lips will be the 2nd most important thing in my make up routine…
I’m a big lover of supple /Glossy-looking and kissable lips …
As my lips tend to crack very easily even after using lip-balm (yes, this is one of the side effect if you consume Anotin), I’ll need a lipstick that is moisturizing enough…In September 2011, Maybelline has launched its newly renovated color sensational lipstick range which guarantee that users will be hooked on it 20 times over…

Maybelline has sent me 4 Color Sensational lippie for review so wanna know how it fares?

Read on!

With this range, you can now jump on the bright lippy bandwagon and have eye-catching, juicy lips..

Color Sensational Lipsticks – Five different shades from the following color ranges:

Now you can know which hues you’re reaching out for straightaway!

Simply perfect in creating that mysterious aura.. 🙂

You can now dress to kill~!



For a demure look on an important date, opt for the POLISHED PINK range..
Now, you can ‘melt’ the hearts of many..



My Verdict

Packaging: The jewel-like casing really caught my attention with its vibrant outlook and it reminds me of Tic Tac.. Haha.. The color scheme on the casing also enables me to clearly identify the type of lip-color i wish to use.. Only downside is that the casing is prone to scratches which can be quite a sore-eye..

Texture: Creamy and Silky texture which will glides effortlessly onto lips.. I dislike lipstick which is so dry and matt which will emphasize on my already dry lips.. But Maybelline Color sensational is moist and velvety which allows me to spread the color onto my lips effortlessly.

Result after application: As the lipstick contains pure undiluted pigments, it gives a crisp color which create a vibrant look. Coverage is excellent and it also gives me smooth and fuller lips.. It is quite long-lasting and color stays on my lips till i rub it off with tissue.

Fragrance:There’s a slight tinge of coco smell and i love it!!  This light sweet scent really engage my senses further and i have to resist the urge to lick the lipstick off… 

Now you can fall in love with lipstick all over again with Maybelline Color sensational.

Available in Watsons, Guardian, SASA, Major supermarkets, hypermarkets, selected departmental stores from Dec 2011, retailing at $17.90.

(Sponsored Review) Surviving the Zoo Visit with Maybelline Pure Mineral B.B Mousse

We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo
How about you, you, you,
You can come too, too, too,
We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo
Remember this catchy song which we used to sing when we were young?
During my younger days, my mum would force me to carry a water bottle during my ZOO visit..
Of course, priority changes when i grow older..
Beside keeping myself hydrated, i will want to look good too while walking under the hot sun.
Therefore, a good canvas which is long-lasting and yet doesn’t clog the pores will be essential…

.

Maybelline Singapore sent me this product a few weeks back and looks like the ideal product to help me achieve a flawless look. Being an innovative and lightweight canvas that offers fuss-free natural looking radiance, this highly anticipated Pure Mineral BB Mousse (First ever in the mass market) will help users to achieve pore-less look effortlessly. Its simple dollop of soft, airy mousse gives all-in-one TLC while it moisturizes, conceals and brightens skin tone while providing UV protection.

Developed in Japan, the Pure Mineral B.B Mousse is formulated while keeping in mind the busy schedule of every modern women in today’s society. Specially designed as a one-step ultra-lightweight skincare solution – its pure mineral will smoothen pores and enhance complexion with a healthy and fresh nude look. Its texture will provide a even / good coverage while allowing your skin to breathe at the same time.

The secret lies behind the power of B.B Ingredients in a Revolutionary Mousse which helps in skin regeneration and soothing. At the same time, it will nourish skin while strengthening the skin’s natural protective ability.

Containing Micro minerals and BB ingredients, this 8-in-1 skincare solution will

1) Hydrates every inches of your skin

2) Brightens Skin

3) Provides supple skin

4) Even out pores

5) Reduces dullness

6) Reduces redness

7) Refine skin Texture

8) Protects skin against UV rays with SPF 30/PA+++

Another secret lies with its breakthrough mousse formula – Maybelline took B.B cream one step further by creating an easy alternative to achieve poreless perfection. The micro air bubbles embedded within the foam will allow the mineral pigments to be evenly dispersed, while giving an instant pore-erasing effect. The mousse (in natural shade) will be suitable for all Asian skin tones as it will blend on your skin naturally to give a nude look.

Something to take note: To prevent wastage, remember not to apply too much force while pressing on the nozzle.. As it is my first time trying a mousse-based make-up, i used too much force and ended up with too much product on my palm… -_-

Step by Step Guide to natural looking radiance using this BB mousse

Apply / Smear the mousse on different parts of your face.

Gently pat and ‘spread’ the mousse until it is evenly distributed on your skin.

You might wish to apply a thicker layer on areas which requires more coverage.

Remember to apply it on your neck area to prevent any obvious contrast (which is a big NO NO)

Once the canvas is done, follow up with your blusher, eye-liner, Mascara, lip-stick etc and you’ll be ready to go.

Plus points about this Mousse

This product is easy to use and coverage is build-able. It really covers up my pores / redness well and it doesn’t feels heavy on my skin. Oil control is relatively good as my skin remains Matt for about 5 hours (even walking under the hot sun). I only have to blot my face during lunch time at about 1 pm (i have the make-up on at about 8 am). I’m not a big Fan of BB creams as it tend to clog my pores but after using it for a few times, it doesn’t result in this problem.

Negative points about this Mousse

As i have fair skin-tone, the shade seems a little too orangery on my skin so i had quite a difficult time trying to blend it.. To resolve this, do NOT apply a thick layer and dust on a layer of loose powder to tone down the orange tint. I repeated this step on my neck area as well to prevent any form of color contrast.

The mousse will be available (in Watson, Guardian, SASA, major supermarkets and hypermarkets and selected departmental stores) from November 2011 and retailing at $23.90.

(Sponsored Review) Goodbye Falsies! – With Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara.

Maybelline New York has sent me some new products that they will be launching in Nov / Dec for review…The upcoming products are:

1) Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Moussel

2) Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara

3) Maybelline Color Sensational

Thank you Maybelline! These Items just came in Just In Time as i have many important occasions / events to attend during year end… Now, there’s no reason for me not to doll up.. 🙂

The Volume’ Express Falsies Mascara caught my eye the most as i really find it a hassle to glue on false lashes. Finally, a mascara that is able to come to my rescue!

Let me tell you why i hate falsies so much!

I dislike the fact that it is so difficult to stick it on.. Due to my uneven eyelids, it will never fail to give me big and small eye… Also, the glue will always tend to give me eye infections, don’t ask me why but this is enough to make me steer clear from falsies..

Now even without falsies, you can have eyelashes that pack a punch without going through the hassle of sticking on falsie.. Maybelline New York (the number 1 make-up brand and mascara expert) has now come out something which creates truckloads of volume. Adding “The Falsie” into the Volum’ Express range, you can now have subtle drama lashes at your finger tips.

The secret in creating lush lashes lies in its formulation which consists of holding and building ingredients to create immense volume. With a blend of gel matrix, multiwax and polymer; lashes will be lifted up with a nice curl. At the same time, Ceramides and panthenol will also condition your lashes by making it stronger, smoother and dense. The formula is further enriched with pro-keratin – a protein which has the ability to strengthen and thicken eyelashes. In this way, every gap along the lash line will be filled to give user an ‘everyday false lash glam’ look.

To complement the mascara, a trusty wand is combined with a potent portion to give Asian eyelashes 5 times its volume. The exclusive Spoon Curler brush is designed to fan out every single lash and creates a better press and
curl.

Also, due to the fact that it is wider in shape, it ensures that lashes are coated with maximum amount of mascara in order to generate maximum volume.

My Verdict

This is how my lashes look after applying 2-3 coats of the mascara and It really seems as if Maybelline has packed False lashes into this tube of mascara.. This mascara really lives up to what it claims as it made my all lashes fuller and thicker, giving it the false lash effect.. Maybelline’s mascara has always been my HG and this new product from them did not fail me as well….

I will make a comparison with another Mascara from Maybelline – Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara. I’m sure this mascara isn’t a stranger to everyone as it is the first vibrating mascara from Maybelline…

As i’ll tend to blink during the application of Mascara, i’ll prefer that the mascara to be dry as that it won’t leave stain and mess up my eye-make up… This Mascara is slightly drier than the Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara. Personally, i prefer the drier formula as it tends to last longer and won’t smudge that easier… But since it is drier, there will be a need to apply more than one coating in order to achieve the Vroom Vroom effect..

Despite multiple coating, it doesn’t results in clumps so my lashes will still look fabulous. Previously with Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara, i will have to layer on with another mascara to create more volume.. But with ‘The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara‘, there’s isn’t a need for me to do so it gives my lashes the needed volume and intensity..

The brush is a little too big to my liking so you might face some difficulties while coating the corner lashes.. As mentioned earlier, the brush will help to curl your lashes but i’m unable to comment on this.. Even with a heated curler, my stubborn lashes will still be very straight due to the weight of my fatty eyelids… I have observed that the brush helps to brush to fan out every single lash for a better application. I won’t recommend using it for your lower lashes as the brush is too big and will result in stains on your under-eyes.

Although it is highly water-poof, Removal of this mascara isn’t a pain in the ass as you can easily remove it with your eye-make up removal… After applying this mascara, i have colleagues who came up to me asking if my lashes are real… Normally at the end of the day, i’ll have panda eyes but i’m proud to say that there’s isn’t much flaking and smudges when i used this mascara.. Looks like i will stick to this mascara for some time and i will highly recommend it to everyone…

See how ‘The Falsies‘ can give me beautiful and wild looking dense lashes with just 2-3 coats (minus the clumps).
Finished the look with eyeliner and i’m ready to face the world… 🙂

If you are looking for a waterproof mascara that withstands rain drops and teary eyes – leaving you to be at your best look throughout the day! Maybelline Volume’ Express The Falsies Mascara will be your best bet…

The Falsies will be launched in stores (Watsons, Guardian, SASA, Major supermarkets/Hypermarket and selected departmental stores) from December 2011… It will be retailing at a pocket-friendly price at $20.90.
