save product skincare Your Say: Do you try to save on product when using your skincare?

I had a very interesting chat with a friend very recently about the lengths people go to, to save on product use when they’re using their skincare. This is especially so when using an expensive brand or product.

If a cream costs you RM400 or a lotion costs you RM300 you want to make sure that you make it last as long as possible, don’t you? Hopefully that way, your dollar/ringgit stretches further. I heard a strange story which I’ll narrate below of one method of saving, but I’d like to hear from you.

You know, when you’re immersed in beauty and seeing the newest and latest come out in the beauty scene week after week, you quite often get … for want of a better word… jaded. Let’s be honest. It takes A LOT to wow me these days. Otherwise it’s usually “Yes, that’s pretty but haven’t we already seen something similar?”

So, when I tell you that here’s a product that made me sit up and pay attention about 2 months ago, you betcha it’s something quite impressive. And it’s coming out of left field for me because it’s coming from Bobbi Brown, a brand from which I never quite expected a product that leaves me absolutely BURSTING to tell you all about it! icon biggrin Attention peeps! The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner is a new holy grail product!

Even better when it’s a product that isn’t all that revolutionary – eyeliner. How much more revolutionary can you get?! Ah but these Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliners are so good!

Imagine if you will, the smoothness and lasting power of the iconic Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Liners but in a pencil form. No more faffing about with brushes and little tiny pots. Just twist, swipe and go! Not new right? True. But these stay on all day long, all through a vigorous house cleaning session and a quick yoga workout. Now how many eyeliners can boast that? icon biggrin Attention peeps! The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner is a new holy grail product!

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that Clarisonic is now a little more prominent and a little easier to find in recent times. Previously, it wasn’t even sold in Malaysia and when it was, it was only in Sephora. But these days, you can spot Clarisonic counters in some major department stores e.g. Parkson Pavilion KL as well as Sephora stores. I was told also that you may even be able to get them at selected Biotherm or Lancome counters but I haven’t seen it for myself so I can’t say for sure.

But if you’re thinking of getting on that bandwagon, let me introduce to you the newest addition to the Clarisonic family – the Clarisonic Aria.

The Clarisonic Aria was launched here in Malaysia about 2 months back and I was told it’d be available in April 2014. However, I have also been told that it’s been available for about a month already so I’m guessing some of you may have already bitten the bait icon wink Clarisonic Aria: The newest Clarisonic Sonic Facial Cleansing Device on the block

Before I tell you about the Aria, let me just say that my previous thoughts on the Clarisonic face cleansing system still stand. I still think that it is best used not daily but at most twice a week unless you have very oily skin and I still think that you should not over do it. Which will bring me to a feature of the Aria that bugs me.

A couple of months back, a friend sent me an early sneak peek of the Dior Fluid Stick by Allure magazine. I shared it on Instagram and it had me very intrigued. The reason was two-fold. First, the packaging reminds me of the very much more affordable Maybelline Lip Polish (which are really nice by the way!).

Second, Dior had a product called Lip Fluid back in 2005/2006 that I actually really liked using. It came in the Dior Addict packaging, with a solid coloured opaque tube, and was a liquid lipstick that was creamy, well pigmented and very nice. Loved it and was sad to see it discontinued. Seeing a similar formula return was surprising and intriguing.

So yes, I was very excited about the Dior Addict Fluid Stick, which is touted to be a hybrid lip product, that is liquid and shiny like a gloss, highly pigmented like a lipstick and with a thin film that offers comfort.

The problem is, once I got hold of a few, I realised that these are quite possibly the first Dior lip products that I have little love for icon sad Almost but not quite a fan of the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks though they win big on colour
