Product Review: Fake Eye Lashes ES A166

Dear Friends

I have been sent these fake lashes 2 weeks ago by KKCenterHK . I have tried it and here is my review.

The brand of fake lashes shown here are from ES Brand. The products are made in Korea. One box contains 10 pairs. The price is quite reasonable.

Only one side with fake lashes.

The lashes looks quite natural from this angle ya?

My comments on this design A166 :
1. The lashes are soft and easy to apply (perfect for beginners)
2. It does not prick your eyes as the material is like fabric.
3. It looks quite natural as you can see in my pics.

I am pleased with the ES lashes.

If you like fake lashes, you can visit KKCenterHK.
I think they ship to most countries.

I have also reviewed other ES brand fake lashes earlier. you can click here to see my review.

Product Review: Heme Genius BB Cream SPF28 PA ++

Dear Friends

I got this Heme Genius BB Cream (15ml) as a free gift from a magazine many months ago. I have tried this product and would like to share my thoughts with you.

Product description
Instantly improve and cover skin's imperfection, delivering a flawless and radiant look. Keep your skin with a water-oil balance. also provide everyday UVA/UVB protection.
Suitable for normal and combination skin.

Oil Test
Firstly, I did an oil test using my simple method - put a small dollop of product on a piece of blotting paper and left it for 7.5 hours. The result is shown below. You can see the oil shadow.

The swatch below shows the color. It actually matched my skin tone after proper blending.

The coverage is medium and gives a matte look.

I quite like the texture and coverage of this BB cream. It is not super oil like other BB cream that I tried. Comparatively, Genius BB cream is less oily than Missha BB Cream that I reviewed here. However, I still need to blot after 3-4 hours (as I have oily skin). The color and coverage is enough for me. I am sure it will suit normal and combination skin people.

Coverage: 4/5 (medium coverage)
Oil Control: 2/5 (rating from oily skin perspective)
Price: unavailable

Hope my review is helpful for those who are considering a new BB cream.

Happy holiday!

Product Review: Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess eye color

Dear Friends
I have been wanting to share with you the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess limited edition collection but was too busy with work. I hope that the collection is still available now. Please pardon me for the delayed review.
Product Description (extracted from Estee Lauder's Press Release)
Inspired by hues from the surf and sand, the NEW, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Island Oasis EyeShadow Palette of six irresistibly wearable shades brightens and defines eyes by day and transforms them by night. The eyeshadows’ delicate iridescent pigments allure with radiance and luminosity in warm sand shades of copper, bronze, gold and coral balanced by cool surf hues of turquoise, seashell pink, silver and seaweed.

Inspired by the hues and atmosphere of luxurious resorts on the Riviera, the collection invites you to sit poolside and take in the cool waters, warm sand beaches and sun’s luminous rays. Experience the casual luxury and seductive spirit of a Goddess with shades that sparkle, shimmer and shine for eyes, lips and nails, while face and décolletage are transformed into golden, glowing perfection
Inspired by long walks on the beach and treasured mementos from the sea, NEW, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Sea Star Bronzing Blush is a beautifully-crafted, feather-light illuminating blush that enhances any skin’s bronzed complexion with a perfectly warm sun-kissed glow. Featuring an artful starfish resting on a shimmering sand-inspired background, the silky, soft powder bronzing blush gives skin a naturally radiant, smooth, sun-kissed finish. Color-true and with buildable coverage, this unique bronzing blush enhances your natural cheek color with an added touch more summer radiance with every stroke. Easy to apply and blend, the blush can be worn alone, or over any Bronze Goddess bronzer and will not streak or settle into pores.

Each color is swatch one time without using any primer/ eye base. You can see how pigmented they are.

Product Review
The eye color showed really well even though I just used very little product. I just dab my brush lightly on the color and picked up the color very easily. The texture is very similar with the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eye Shadow that I reviewed in 2010.
I simply love the intensity of the color because what I see is what I get! 

For those who do not own many eye color palette yet, you may want to consider getting this as it has very good color combination and brilliant color payoff. I am very pleased with the formulation and I think that Estee Lauder eye color has improved tremendously over the years as compared to the Pure Color range that I bought in 2009.

As you can see I have created 2 looks using this palette. I think you can easily create more than 4 looks with this palette.

For the first look, I used the Gold color (inner corner) and the darkest color (outer corner) and lightest color as the highlighter at the brow bone. As you can see, the gold color shows really well even with the bad camera lighting. Doing mt eye shadow takes me less than 5 mins due the good color payoff. The gold color does add some glam to my makeup look.

For the 2nd look, I used the blue color (inner corner) and the darkest color (outer corner). The blue really shows well just like the rest of the colors. 
My favourite color is the blue and darkest color. You can create a brown look or nude look with this palette as well. 

Overall, I think this is a very versatile palette. I love the packaging of the eye palette as it is magnetic.

As the bronzer is quite light and doesn't show well on camera, I did not have a picture to show you. The powder is very fine and has a shimmery finish.

I must tell you that I really adore the star fish design. The star fish is simply beautiful! I can stare at it and be captivated by its sheer beauty....day dreaming of my holiday by the sea....ha...ha....

The full range of Bronze Goddess makeup is available exclusively at Estee Lauder in Isetan KLCC, The Gardens and Lot 10. (I hope they are still available, else you have to wait for the next limited edition). I am actually looking forward to see the holiday Block Buster collection 2011.

Smelling Delicious with Golden Delicious by DKNY

Dear Readers

This August, DKNY unveils to us yet another collection of the Delicious range. The new fragrance is called DKNY Golden Delicous EDP which I really like. If you have not tried the new DKNY Golden Delicious, drop by at any DKNY counter and try it for yourself. I was invited to the launch recently and had a wonderful time.

DKNY Golden Delicious embraces a radiant modern spirit with the contrast of glistening florals and delicious heat. The top is a refreshing medley of Orange Flower Water, sparkling Mirabelle and signature Golden Delicious Apple. The heart introduces an intoxicating bouquet of White Rose, Casablance Lily, Vanilla Orchid and Muget, while the finish spices up the freshness with a sensual blend of Musk, Sandalwood and Teakwood. It is a scent created to tantalize the senses - bask in its rich elegance as well as its imperial glory. It is the most regal apple of the DKNY Delicious collection.

By reading the description, I bet you can imagine the scent that will tantalize your senses.

The Million Dollar bottle is created by the celebrity jeweler Martin Katz. This bottle will be unveiled across the globe from London , to Mexico to Malaysia. It is adorned with 2000 stones (diamonds and gemstones) sourced from around the world. Can you see the New York skyline? The bottle will be available for purchase. The net proceeds will go to Action Against Hunger - a global humanitarian organisation committed to end world hunger.

Price Details:
DKNY Golden Deicious EDP 30ml - RM150
DKNY Golden Deicious EDP 50ml - RM225

Happy trying!
