It says, “Get Tsubasa’s Dolly Eyes!” At the back of the packaging there are printed instructions on the product information and little tips from Tsubasa Masuwaka on how to line your eyes.
All the school work has been taking a toll on the amount of free time I have. Now my make-up blog is being abandoned because of the endless number of project meetings and late night studying in school. I finally managed to squeeze out some time after approximately 2 months to do a short review on the Urban Decay Fun, Feminine and Dangerous Palettes for their 2012 Holiday collection.
Today’s review is going to be… The Feminine Palette, my favourite of the three! (: I simply love the purple-pink casing with the black laced details (there is some layering going on between the purple base and the lace and it’s so cool! It’s just too bad the camera can’t seem to capture that 3D effect. and what’s interesting about these palettes are that they double up as a mini wallet/clutch except that you can’t really place your phones or bank cards inside due to the magnetic strip inside. So this is how the palette looks like:
Hello lovelies! I wanted to kickstart this new year with a product review on theBalm Cosmetics. I personally was enthralled by the unique packaging that theBalm’s products has and it sort of reminds me of Benefit Cosmetics as well.
Here’s the Hot Mama Blush with literally, a hot sexy mama on the front cover! What I like about this packaging is that the cardboard is really lightweight and it’s easy for travelling. Just pop it into your pouch and you’re good to go! Hot Mama retails for S$29.90 at Sasa stores islandwide but I got it for only S$22 at the introductory discount!
When opened, there’s a little mirror followed by the blush! I think it’s more than a full-sized blush and it can probably last me for years or even my whole lifetime assuming it doesn’t go bad. Anyway, I like that this blush packaging is not like the others in which there is mini brush given because personally, I don’t use the brushes provided in any blushers.
The Sigma Paris Palette is a project that’s assigned to 7 amazing beauty gurus on Youtube (frmheadtotoe, xteeener, MakeupByTiffanyD, macNC40, petrilude, xsparkage and DulceCandy87). They were each assigned to a monument in the City of Lights, Paris, to creatively develop their own shade of eyeshadow based on the location. The entire palette is painstakingly contributed by the 7 gurus to cater to a wide range of skintones, including the blushes and brushes!
Without further ado, let’s take a peek inside the palette!
The palette is made of sturdy cardboard and it is absolutely gorgeous! It comes with a booklet containing all the beauty gurus as well as a description of how they came up with their eyeshadow colours based on the monuments assigned.
It has been a really really busy week with all the studying in school! Power 98 FM had been my study buddy for this entire period and I am really thankful for the good music that they provided me while I was trying to keep awake from the pile of notes!
On a lighter note, here’s a review of the Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay which I received as a present on my 20th birthday this year. I know that this is a pretty late one considering all other beauty bloggers such as Jen from frmheadtotoe.com and Temptalia have already done this last year but nevertheless, here goes!
The palette comes in a tin-styled container which reminds me of my pencil cases when I was younger and it comes with a mini Lip Junkie in the shade “Naked”. It has this really nice minty smell when I took it out from its plastic box.
