Revlon Insta-Fix and Insta-Blush

revlon-instafix-instablush.jpg

Stick foundation, contour/ highlighting and blushers are getting really popular thanks to their compact size and quick fix ability! There isn’t a need for a puff or brush or beauty blender when applying stick makeup; all you need is your finger tips! It is so much more convenient especially if you are in a rush or traveling! (I like to pack as little things as possible!)

I was really tempted to get the Revlon Insta-Blush when I saw them in the store because the colours look really stunning especially Candy Kiss! Thank you Revlon Singapore for sending them over! Look at how blinding the 2 Instafix highlighters are! The Insta-blush came a lot more pigmented than I expected. #lol Btw, have you read my entry on Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour?

revlon instafix highlighter review

Revlon Instafix Highlighting Stick Pink Light

Available in Pink Light (white and silver pearls)—– best for light to medium skin tones, and Gold Light (golden pearls)—– best for medium to deep skin tones. I used Pink Light for the demo and picture above; Gold Light for the below photo together with Insta-Blush in Berry Kiss! Due to my healthy colour skin tone, I definitely suit Gold Light more! I like the peachy/ gold shade that gives a really radiant cheekbone! Can I say that I live for the Gold Light! <3 By the way, I was using Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour in HD Adobe for both looks unknowingly. 😛

Revlon Instafix Highlighting Stick Gold Light and Insta-Blush Candy Kiss

Revlon Instafix Highlighting Stick Gold Light and Insta-Blush Candy Kiss

Let’s move on to the Insta-Blush S$25.90 which are available in 4 colours suited for different skin tones:

  • Rose Gold Kiss – Fair skin
  • Candy Kiss – Light skin
  • Nude Kiss – Medium skin
  • Berry Kiss – Deep skin

Insta-Blush features a luxurious cream to powder formula with unqiue mica-coated pigments to diffuse light for a naturally kiss of colour on the cheeks.

Look how pigmented the Insta-Blush in Candy Kiss is with just one gentle swipe! My skin tone is considered Medium skin but Candy Kiss still came out bold! I tried Rose Gold Kiss on my face but… yeah, it doesn’t show up on my skin. *Cries* I really love the shimmer when I swatch it! But I still have 3 colours to create 3 different looks!

Instafix Berry Kiss is most suited for Medium skin which is my skin tone! It does look like my cheeks are naturally flushed in comparison to Candy Kiss ! On my lips is Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour in HD Blossom.

Instafix Berry Kiss is best suited for deep skin tone so I look kinda more healthy and sporty which I adore too! It is perfect to use as a contour colour too! I am using Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolour in HD Sunset.

 

Thank you Revlon Singapore once again!! I received even moreeeeee eyeshadows, eyebrow crayon and pencils from them.

Insta-Blush and Instafix Highlighter are available at selected Watsons and Guardian

Shop at Luxola and Save Money!

Last year, I went to Luxola’s One Night Stand Party and received a couple of products! Thank you! I was having so many backlogs and thus the super late post for this! (Actually I still have many backlogs… Sorry!) I will share with you some products I received.

sleek-cosmetic

Sleek Maximum Impact Eyeshadow in Tangy and Ruby

This fabulous compact has 18 must have shades, which include colours from neutral shades to shades that will stand out and really make an impact! Each shade can be mixed and matched to create contrast, alternatively shades can be used on their own for single intensity. The incredibly fine texture of the powders glide on easily leaving behind an even, shimmering film of colour.

sleek-cosmetics

 I only applied one layer for both the colours and the texture is so soft and blends easily onto my skin. Sometimes, we should apply louder colour and trust me, you will definitely brightened up! 😀

Next I want to share with you is a super super affordable cosmetics brand called wet n wild! We were told that the cosmetics start from S$4.90, and I asked… “WHAT?? Is it $4.90 or $14.90? How can it be so cheap???!!” lol lol. It is crazy that you can get such affordable cosmetics in Singapore, and I do not dare to get them. (However, Maybelline is like super cheap in US too!!! Singapore is like 4 times more expensive -_-).  I received 4 products from wet n wild.

wet-n-wild

Fast Dry Nail Color

  • One coat dries in 60 seconds
  • Vivid, enhanced colors apply smooth for streak-free, even coverage
  • ManiCurve™ Brush is designed with a flat rod for ideal liquid dispersion and a rounded bristle tip to hug nail curves for perfect application
  • 3-Free! Formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalate free!

MegaLast® Salon Nail Color

  • A revolutionary resin polymer system for exceptional color adhesion
  • Calcium and mineral fortified to help prevent nail discoloration
  • 3-Free! Formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalate free!
  • Our ManiCurve™ Pro Brush! It’s absolutely incredible! The rod is flat so the liquid drains down to the bristles equally, and the rouded bristles hug your nail curves perfectly!

wet n wild 3

I only applied one layer and look at how gorgeous these 2 colours are! I love both colours so I can’t decide which I prefer! Both has super easy application, and no smudge at how since both dries pretty fast.

Color Icon™ Blusher (Pearlescent Pink)

  • Silky-smooth, lightweight formula
  • Buildable to create a transparent sheen or a radiant pop of color
  • A special blend of treated nylon powders provides long-lasting color
  • Dermatologist-tested

MegaLast® Lip Color (Coral-line)

  • 4-hour longwearing lip colors leave a semi-matte cream finish
  • Hyaluronic Microspheres adhere to lips to make them long-lasting
  • An exclusive polymer complex make your lips cushiony and plump
  • Natural marine plant extracts coenzyme Q10 and vitamins A & E help smooth lips
  • Winner of the Allure Best of Beauty Award!

Last but not least, it is the blusher and lipstick! I kept using the lipstick! Even though the lipstick is very cheap, priced at only S$6.90, it definitely is super lasting (lasted after lunch) and the colour is just so nice!!

wet-n-wild-2

Like the rest of the swatches, I applied only 1 layer and check out how intense the lip stick colour is!

Last and not least (again!! lol), here is a super act cute photo of me with the colourful lollipop rubber bands (which I lost most of them!), and the Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick (POW 1) I received! I really love how bright and intense the bright pink looks like. I carry this in my makeup pouch all the time since this lipstick instantly make me look more energetic when I applied it!

A post shared by 👑陳秀慧🌸堂本キヨラ🦄 최수희🐱 (@xkiyora) on

This time round, I want to share with you 2 products from ETUDE HOUSE amongst the generous amount of products I was given!! <3 Thank you COZYCOT and ETUDEHOUSE~~ <3

P1230058

The two products that I want to share in this entry are the AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot & Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit!


♥ ETUDE HOUSE ♥ AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot 

P1230078

Formulated with Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress, AC Clinic delivers trouble care. Pink Powder alleviates trouble swelling on contact to minimize damage.

P1230081

Comes with cotton swabs for application.

Directions

Do not shake bottle. After facial care, allow powder to settle at the bottom. Perpendicularly dip cotton swab into bottle to draw powder form bottle.

P1230005

Use swab to dab trouble spots and acne with swab tip to coat with powder. I had a painful acne on my forehead and the AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot came at a useful time! You can see the collage as per below.

P1230002

Picture 1: You can see my acne on my forehead

Picture 2: Apply a layer of Pink Powder spot on affect area

Picture 3: On the morning after I woke up, and you can see that the acne has improved much better just after 1 night.

Picture 4: On Day 2, the acne is almost gone after using the AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot! YAY! 😀

Some caution to take note of when using the product.

  1. For external use only.
  2. Avoid contact with eyes.
  3. Keep out of reach of children.
  4. Discontinue use if signs of irritation and/or rash appear.

♥ ETUDE HOUSE ♥ Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect FitP1230062

This BB Cream comes with a “double layer cover formula” that perfectly covers imperfections and areas with uneven skin tone for smooth, bright, and flawless skin.

Directions

Apply Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit to all areas of the face. Pat to finish.

On the picture below, I actually applied too much for my hand surface. 😛 And you can clearly see the difference between the before and after!!

P1230063

REVIEW: Somehow the Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit just need like pea-size to apply for my whole face! I don’t know why and I am super amazed by how soft and smooth as it blends very easily and evenly onto my skin! As promised, my skin tone becomes brighter and smooth!! Also, the Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit is the only makeup for my face and it amazingly lasted the whole day staying flawless without the need to touch-up! LOVE IT! <3

Below are 2 unedited photos of me using the Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit without flash and with flash! I am very particular about how a foundation looks like on the photos especially with flash! I don’t want to look like a ghost or have cakey patchy looking skin. The Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit looks so perfect on photos without any difference between my face and neck even though I didn’t apply on my neck.

P1230017P1230018

Last but not least, here are some cautions to take note of when using it. 😉

  1. Use only as directed.
  2. Avoid storing in high and low temperatures and areas exposed to direct sunlight.
  3. Cease use if problems arise.

P1190174

P1190177

White cat face then equals to my gorgeous Kylila~~~P1190175

The Shupette has it all eyes and lips palette has a good range of eyeshadow and lips for all kinds of looks! As i mentioned previously, I want to create different looks using Shupette!! However, I am so sorry but I only had time to do a Kylila look!!P1190181

So, let us analyze the unique features of Kylila~~~~ she is the perfect paper fluffy white far, with pink ears and nose, and soul-piercing yellow eyes! She is the most beautiful cat in the world!! LOL! At least to me and the family~~~ <3

Step 1: Apply the pink gold eyeshadow all over the top of the skin of my eye.

Step 2: Apply the pink eyeshadow on the outer 1/3 of my top eyelid, and the 1/2 inner corner of my lower eyelid. DSCN0553 DSCN0554 DSCN0558

Basically that is my easy Kylila makeup eyeshadow using Shupette. lol!!!

Step 3: Apply eyeliner thinly and closely to my eyelashes with a bit of cateye hook at the end. It is important for this step to be very precise and thin as I want to create the sweet romantic and innocent Kylila look! Too much eyeliner will not succeed! 😛

Eyeliner I used is my trusty canmake liquid eyeliner and mascara is toofaced better than sex mascara. REALLY VERY AWESOME!!!
