Happy Saturday Ladies!
My Dad surprised me by asking me to book them a movie this weekend. After much to-ing and fro-ing, we are going to see Pirates of the Carribbean : On Stranger Tides. Would you believe that this is the first Pirates movie I’m going to watch? Yeah I’m way behind, I know. So while I go and savour the movie, here are some new beauty items you can look out for.
Hada Labo Olive Cleansing Oil
Hada Labo previously had their Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Makeup Remover, which I wasn’t too crazy over, and they now have a proper cleansing oil! Its olive oil based so I’m quite worried that it will break me out like DHC does. I ordered mine online before I knew it was out here, and I just received it about 2 days ago, but there you go! I’ve already seen it at some Guardian pharmacies so take a look there.
Hada labo Cleansing Oil retails at RM49.90
Revlon CustomEyes Eyeshadow Palettes
Clockwise from Left: Party Pops (colourful), Naturally Glamorous (browns), Rich Temptations (purples), Smokey sexy (blue-grey)
I never thought very much of Revlon eyeshadows. I always found them lacking a bit in pigment. The new Custom Eyes Eyeshadow palettes however, are a totally different kettle of fish! Lovely smooth textures for the most part, and well pigmented. I most certainly recommend taking a look at them, especially Smokey Sexy and Naturally Glamorous. I’ll have a review or two coming up in due course 🙂
Revlon Custom Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes come in 4 colour palettes and retail at RM49 each
L’Oreal Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation
I like my powder foundation and I’ve been using this one from L’Oreal Revitalift for a couple of weeks and am quite happy with it. The powder can go on a little thick if you use the sponge so I prefer to apply this powder with a brush. It goes on a more natural, sheerer layer. Colour wise, mine is Vanilla that looks a little dark in the pan, but matches my skintone quite well if I blend it together with the light shade that you can use as highlighter too in a pinch. Its supposed to have anti-aging properties and to make skin look more matte with smaller pores. Matte, yes. Most powders do but I’m not sure about the smaller pores bit. If you’re keen I can have a review go up on this one soon. Comes with SPF30 PA++
L’Oreal Revitalift Powder Foundation retails at RM69.90 at all L’Oreal counters and I believe comes in 4-6 shades
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Skincare range
I’d been waiting for this one ever since I knew about it so I can finally run my review on the range 😀 I’d tried the very popular Ultra Facial range before, which went all the way to the
Antarctic Arctic and kept the explorers’ skin moist despite the super low humidity and cold. However, in the tropics, I found Ultra Facial (in the white packaging) too oily and heavy for my skin. The Ultra Facial Oil Free range (in blue packaging) is perfect for us tropical girls, or for those with combination-oily skin. I love the gel cream – its light yet delivers loads of moisture without all the icky oily heavy feel.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Cleanser retails at RM85/150ml, Ultra Facial Oil Free Toner RM85/200ml and Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream at RM100/50ml
Mentholatum Waterlip Lip Balm
For lip balm fanatics, Mentholatum has yet another lip balm out with hyaluronic acid and deep sea minerals extract to keep lips moistened all day. Hyaluronic acid as we know, helps the skin retain moisture so you can keep dry flaky lips at bay. There is also SPF15 PA+ UV protection (which is better than nothing) and it comes in 2 flavours – Peppermint (blue) and Non Fragranced (pink). I’m not much into lipbalm but if you need one that isn’t too oily but keeps lips feeling hydrated, take a look at these. Its not bank breaking and Peppermint is very refreshing!
Mentholatum Waterlip Intense Lip Moisturiser retails at RM12.90 at most leading pharmacies
Are you headed for a movie this weekend too? I wanted to watch Kungfu Panda 2 (I loved Kungfu Panda!) but my Dad said “A cartoon??” in a tone of voice that brooked no discussion so yeah. Pirates it is!
Enjoy the weekend everyone! 😀
