Review: Shills Mandelic Acid Skin Renew Essence

Good day smexies!

If you have been following SHILLS Facebook updates, you would realise that they have revamped their page into navy blue in conjunction to introduce their latest star product - Shills Mandelic Acid Skin Renew Essence.

March Favourites

Hey guys,

It's Sunny Saturday today, the day when I can wear PJs walking around in my house in a lazy afternoon. Just kidding, if I am still in my PJs, there will be an unpleasant surprise from my mother. 

Today, I'm going to share my favourite makeup items with you all! I think it would be a great idea to have My Favourite Items of the month post in 2013, just to keep my blog fresh! I'm going to introduce some of my favourites in March issue.
I have poor editing skill. 
Star product of the month!
One of my favourite products in this month would be Essence Gel Eyeliner, it is an essential product for my every makeup look. I just can't live without eyeliner because my eyes tend to look ultra sleepy even though I am wide awake! Essence Gel Eyeliner is smooth and the colour is jet black! Perfect for creating K-Pop cat eyes look ;)

1. NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in LSS632 Frappucino
This is the latest lipstick I've purchased at Sephora. At first, I was looking for Tea Rose but their outlets at Star Hill and KLCC do not provide many choices there. Through some survey I've done, the shades of Tea Rose and Frappucino are quite similar. The reason why I like this lipstick very much is because the shade is not OTT, I wear it for university almost everyday! It has good staying power and it only costs less than RM20!

2. Essence get Big lashes waterproof mascara
I purposely bought this mascara just for SHM concert! The name of this mascara says it all 'WATERPROOF', which is useful for busy girls like me. Not only that, it helps to volumizing my eyelashes, giving my eyes an kawaii effect.

3. Revlon Color Stay Foundation
I can say is, this foundation is the best foundation I could find in the average market. The coverage is extremely good, it can cover my blemishes and acne without using concealer. It has funny smell though, I think it smells like medicine (I don't know!). The price is reasonable with all the benefits I could get. Oh yea, I would to thank Josarine for recommending me this.

4. Peripera Milky Lip Tint
Most amusing part is that I got this just because of the packaging, it is really darn cute! *impulsive buying* However, this lip tint is really nice to play with. The shades are sweet and innocent (pink or peach) which is a must-have product for korean and gyaru inspired makeup. I like to use this lip tint as cheek tint because it is not overwhelming.

5. Maybelline Baby Lips Color
Lip balms are my favourite daily product for moisturising my lips from the harmful sunny days. What I like about this product is there's no fragrance/taste at all. I don't like lipbalms with flavours because it is just taste too weird for me. It's like I'm hanging banana on my mouth -.- It's cheap and good for my yummy lips.

Review: essence Bronzing Compact Powder matte in 02 love to be matt

I'm been searching around for a bronzer for contouring purpose and since I got some vouchers with me, I decided to 'splurge' some goodies from Essence makeup brand.
and... I wanna share my review on this product!
essence bronzing compact powder matt: 02 love to be matt (MYR 15.90)

The packaging of this product comes with simple clear plastic compact that opens and shuts easily and firmly. Although it's simple and cheap, the design of the bronzer is really pretty and attractive to me. I just love the design! 
See how beautiful it is! It has a 'beach' feels which explains the sun kiss effect using a bronzer!
This bronzer comes with matte texture that could create a more natural look, giving the skin a flawless warmer effect rather than a messy look. I like the fact that it is pigmented but not overly done and I could build up the colour for a better contouring effect.

This is how it looks like on my face. See how pretty and natural effect of the bronzer? It looks lovely on my skin, making me look more-slimmer ^^ I personally love this product very much, it isn't expensive and it could create beautiful matte finish on my skin. However, although it claims to have silky smooth powder, it's kinda powdery, a soft touch with a bronzer brush could pick up excessive product! I have to be gentle when using this product :[

but I'm not a gentle lady lol

 Overall, I love this product very much. It is better than any other bronzers I ever had because of its pigmentation. The other bronzers that I own do not have strong pigmentation, no matter how I build up the colour, it just doesn't show up but creating a messy look instead. With the proper technique, I could contour my nose, jawline and cheeks without any problem! 

  • Cheap and affordable.
  • The size of the bronzer is big.
  • Good pigmentation, gives a pretty sun kiss effect.
  • Easily manage with proper techniques.
  • Packaging is fragile. Don't drop it onto the floor ><

Will I repurchase this product? Definitely! The size of the compact powder is so big it could use up to 24 months and price is pretty cheap :) A good purchase for me in 2012!
