I have been a little too busy to trawl the pharmacies lately, so this might be stale news to many of you. But its new to me so do bear with me 🙂
Silkygirl Blink Glitter Eyeliners
First up are the Silkygirl Blink Glitter Eyeliners I spotted at Guardian at a promotional price of RM9.88 each. They are really tiny and come in 5 colours – Metallic Green, Diamond Blue, Pink-A-Boo, Silver Sparkles and Gold Dust. I tested a couple on the back of my hand.
Sorry Silkygirl, these glitter liners suck big time for me. The bottle is very tiny and the brush is a very thin skinny taklon brush that felt too flimsy. The quality of the brush also differs from tester to tester – some were thick some were skinny. The liner swatched clear with HUGE chunks of glitter in them. You could easily dupe this with clear liquid liner dusted over with some glitter or shimmer eyeshadow…. and probably get a better result!
Maybelline Clear Smooth Mineral Foundation
Retailing at RM49.90 are Maybelline’s contribution to the mineral foundation craze. They come in 6 colours, and a little kabuki brush. The brush is sadly, not much use as its too small and it pokes and scratches 🙁 It might be just the tester but if this is how if feels after 100 people have played with it, it doesn’t make me feel any happier about it.
Colour-wise, I could not find a match in the Clear Smooth Mineral Foundation at all. All the shades were just a touch too yellow for me. I did not see the ingredient list so I cannot tell if they are truly “pure minerals” or not. I’m not into mineral foundation but if you are, you could check this out for a relatively cheap powder foundation.
L’oreal White Perfect Pearl Foundation
Coinciding remarkably with Lancome Blanc Expert’s new improved whitening line is the L’oreal White Perfect Pearl foundation. (btw have you printed out your voucher for free samples of Lancome Blanc Expert skincare yet? 🙂 )
L’oreal’s new foundation comes in 2 forms – the 2 way powder foundation (67.90) and liquid foundation (RM54.90). The powder foundation caught my eye with its dual colour tone – the top bit is lighter. I was curious why this was so and I was also curious why Pearl? Does this new foundation contain pearl? Does that explain the relatively high price tag?
That said, I liked how the powder foundation felt when I swatched it. It felt smooth and silky and nice! Incidentally, I’ve hit pan on 2 powder foundations – does this justify my trying this new one out? 🙂
Its almost the weekend!
For Malaysians, we are going to enjoy a long weekend what with Monday being a public holiday. For readers in other countries its still a 2 day weekend to look forward to! How are you planning to spend this weekend? Do you have anything exciting on you’d like to share?
Me? By the time you read this, I might be up in the air somewhere where I cannot check my emails 😛 Or I might be bumming around in an airport somewhere checking out the dutyfree goodies 😀
Either way you plan to spend your weekend, have fun, stay safe and…
… stay beautiful!

The Maybelline’s mineral foudation contains Bismuth, which known for causing itchiness in some ppl, so disappointed. Hmm, can’t wait to hear your review on the L’oreal Pearl powder fooundation!
Aha! I knew it was too good to be true to have available drugstore mineral makeup 🙂 Thanks for the info. I will review the L’oreal foundation if I ever get it some time 🙂

Thanks so much for this. I was so tempted to get SilkyGirl’s glitter eyeliner.
Glad to be of help. The liner was bleh. Skip!
I thought the Silkygirl eyeliner would be a good alternative to my Tiffa liner =( Guess that the Tiffa is still better
I’ve only experienced the Tiffa eyeliner once – stick to Tiffa!
tested silkygirl liner, yuck, dun like.
have Maybelline’s foundation, not bad, but really, it’s too yellow >_< and the brush sucks!
dunno bout Loreal, cuz i always have trouble with getting the colour right!
Yep the Maybelline foundation is way too yellow. Asian skins aren’t all THAT yellow! I usually have better luck with L’oreal foundations 🙂 In my case I go for the lightest colour and work my way up.
awww wherever you go! ENJOY shopping and stay safe! 🙂
I’ve seen Silkygirl at Guardian before. Is it a local brand?
Yes Silkygirl is a Malaysian drugstore brand. Some stuff aren’t bad and its mostly cheap.
i was so tempted to try the silkygirl liners too.
when i found out the price i was like so cheap?
then i read your review and i understood everything 😛
i was about to regret because my mum recently bought me a testimo glitter liquid liner from a sale (still cost RM 30!)
Some glitter liners are fine. I don’t know about T’estimo but I usually like their products 🙂
oooo.. i cant wait to hear about the review of loreal powder foundation!
I didn’t get the L’oreal powder yet. If I do I’ll write about it
the maybelline foundation definitely seems too yellow for me. not tempted. Even with the other stuff. meh.
LOL… ya I don’t know what Maybelline was thinking.
i’m thinking to get Maybelline AngelFit foundation… but dunno whether tat’s a right choice…
I have tried the Angelfit foundation. I really like it! I would have gotten a slightly lighter colour but otherwise in terms of quality its pretty decent stuff.
Yea the Maybelline was a bit of a disappointment too… Instead I prefer the New Loreal Minerals Foundation where the powder is much finer than the last one. The colors are more in choices. But then the applicator is a bit messy. You have to twist the brush and when you open the cap everything just flies out…
The twist brush sounds like Revlon’s Mineral foundation. I thought the Revlon wasn’t too bad based on my experience with it.
I got my stuff from the PattyBelle contest! Thanks!
Glitter eyeliner? Hello 1986 disco :p
LOL… No fear of glitter with these!
i like silkygirl blink glitter eyeliner.so rock and so beautiful.love it.
So it’s good? I really want to buy it but reviews are confusing me. lol.
