Shupette: Sweet Kylila Inspired makeup

P1190174

Kyaaaaa~ I went to kitties’ paradise when I saw this shu uemura x Karl Lagerfeld collaborate #Shupette!!! THE PACKAGING IS JUST SO ME!! Pink, sliver, cat, furry kitty cat… these all equal to KIYORA! *PURRS*

P1190177

Can you see that even the box has glittery shimmer!!!!!!! THIS IS KIYORA~~ *kira kira*~P1190179

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!!!

Then I am done with my eye makeup! 😀 I am Kylila~~~DSCN0564

Step 4: I chose the lightest and sweetest pink lip gloss from Shupette! Remember, the main color for Kylila’s makeup is pink~~~~ and sweet! ^^DSCN0567

Step 5: Last but not least, I applied JILL STUART blusher to complete my Kylila’s makeup! 😀

What do you think? Do you like my Kylila’s makeup??? I am so sad that I didn’t win the #Shupette Instagram contest.. 🙁 However, Kylila is still the most gorgeous cat in the whole universe! 😛DSCN0574

MERRY CHRISTMAS MY GORGEOUS READERS!!!! I hope that you will follow me through another fabulous year ahead! May all the love, luck, health, money and everything you wish to come to you! Remember that only good things can happen to you and me!!! *BEAMS*

CYBER COLORS BLACK LABEL FOUNDATION SERIES for Flawless and Ageless Skin

P1190161

I received the CYBER COLORS BLACK LABEL SERIES, and the series is currently available at SaSa Singapore! All are made in Japan~~~ Love love Japan!! 😀 Thank you Stefanie and Avery~~ <3

The BLACK LABEL SERIES is a rich and skin-loving textured foundation that provides high coverage with lustrous, dewy finish that stays fresh all day.

Formulated with a blend of precious herbal essences – Reishi, Ginseng, Angelica and Cordceps, to unveil the natural beauty of Asian women.

It also diminishes the appearance of pores, dark eye circles, and fines lines, creating a flawless, and radiance skin. It also said to deliver a continuous surge of essential hydration, regulates sebum for all-day comfort and coverage and helps skin appear firmer, more contoured and ageless!

Much more than a makeup, the Series also tackles uneven skin tone, dehydration, oily skin and other skin problems. Its delicate and lightweight texture creates the most luxurious and perfect complexion, a skin glowing with charm and youth.

P1190163

These are the 4 items that I received from SaSa Singapore:

  1. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV CREAM FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
  2. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV LIQUID FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
  3. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE SILKY LOOSE POWDER
  4. BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV POWDER FOUNDATION SPF 23 PA++

P1190166

You can choose to use either the ESSENCE UV CREAM FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++ or the BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV LIQUID FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++! Check out the different benefits below~

P1190164

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV CREAM FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
Its rich and nourishing, though never sticky, texture effectively smooths out fine lines, diminishes pores, pigmentation and all other imperfections. Delivers a continuous surge of essential hydration, regulates sebum for all-day comfort and coverage and helps skin appear firmer, more contoured and ageless.

Usage: After applying Black Label Essence UV Moisture Base, apply evenly on face and neck by sponge or foundation brush.

CYBcream

The texture of the cream is slightly thicker as compared to the Liquid foundation (obviously). I like this as it has better coverage and does a great job of controlling sebum. 🙂 However, I actually prefer the liquid foundation as it is lighter on the skin.

P1190165

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV LIQUID FOUNDATION SPF18 PA++
Formulated with Pore Gradation Powder, this moisturizing and lightweight liquid foundation blends into the skin with perfect evenness for the look and feel of bare skin. Herbal essence infuses skin with nutrients and moisture, leaving it smooth, soft and conditioned. Prevents melanin production and pigmentation.

Usage: After applying Black Label Essence UV Moisture Base, apply evenly on face and neck by sponge or foundation brush.

I really like this LIQUID FOUNDATION as it is super lightweight and blends into my skin easily and creates even over all tone for my skin! I don’t even feel nor look like I am wearing any foundation but my skin looks so good! I don’t even need to use concealer! (Actually I don’t know how to use concealer. lol) Also, my skin feels moisturized, soft and smooth! Actually I thought I can step out of the house with my skin like this in the photo below. 😀 😀 😀

DSCN0538

Looks not bad right, I feel that I can step out of the house like this! Especially now that my eyebrow shape is changed by my facial therapist and the eyelash and eyebrow serum I bought from SaSa! 😛  For your information, it is the MARVALA double eyelash. I swear by it!!!!

Next up, I used the ESSENCE SILKY LOOSE POWDER to prolong my make-up and to create a matte look!

P1190167

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE SILKY LOOSE POWDER
Silky smooth, extremely fine and comfortable. Its soft-focus and skin-perfecting formula diffuses light and gives skin a flawless finish. Complexion glows with natural radiance, appears fresh and luminous all day long.

Usage: After applying Black Label Essence UV Liquid Foundation or Cream Foundation, use a makeup puff or brush to apply the powder lightly onto face for long-lasting makeup.

DSCN0539 DSCN0540

DSCN0541

Yay!! The loose powder is enough to last me through the day with matte and moisturized looking skin, but if you need to do a touch up anytime in the day, you can also get the BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV POWDER FOUNDATION SPF 23 PA++!

P1190168

BLACK LABEL ESSENCE UV POWDER FOUNDATION SPF 23 PA++
A skin-loving textured compact combines Complex Powder and Moisturizing Powder that builds up a moisturizing film on your skin and controls excess sebum. Micro Powder reflects light and brings radiance to dull, uneven-toned and lifeless skin. Dark eye circles, wrinkles and pores are diminished.

Usage:For touch-up, gently dab a tissue or sponge onto face to remove excess sebum, then apply the foundation by sponge onto skin, pressing lightly. P1190170

Muahaha, to tell you the truth, I brought this out with me whenever I used any of the BLACK LABEL FOUNDATION series, but I didn’t ever use it once. The cream/liquid foundation is long-lasting enough for a good work day so… there isn’t much need to use it. :PPPPP So if you are thinking of trying the BLACK LABEL, maybe you should get the cream/liquid foundation + loose powder first and see if you will need the powder foundation for touch-up! Sorry ah SaSa.. I have to be truthful to my readers. HEHE!!!!

GO TO ANY SASA SINGAPORE NOW TO TRY THE BLACK LABEL!! LET’S all have soft and moisturized beautiful skin~~ <3

So, I am all ready to step out of the house with my full make-up!!!!! I think being a woman is really a very very fun thing! I can change my makeup and then I look different everyday! 😀

DSCN0573

Do you like this makeup I did?? This time round, I got this idea from SHU UEMURA Korean instagram!!

P1190174
