Saturday again Ladies!
Here are a couple of some new beauty bits spotted out and about, with some quick thoughts on those I have tried (or even those I haven’t because… why! I’m versatile that way! 😛 ) If you have tried any one of the products listed and want to contribute your 2 cents, please feel free to do so in the comments 😀
Maybelline Hypersharp Eyeliner
New to the Maybelline stables is the liquid eyeliner pen – Hypersharp eyeliner. Offering a very fine flexible nib and waterproof formula, this eyeliner pen is supposed to make it super easy to line one’s eyes. I haven’t reviewed it, but my favourite liquid liner pen is the Smashbox Liquid Eyeliner Pen. Very awesome for drawing a nice dark line that does not budge all day. I’m keen to see how this fares by comparison. You’ll know once I do!
Maybelline Hypersharp Eyeliner pen retails at RM23.90 at all Maybelline counters
Crabtree & Evelyn x Hello Kitty
I’m no fan of Hello Kitty but if you are, Crabtree & Evelyn have teamed up with Sanrio’s Hello Kitty for a range of exclusive Hello Kitty x Crabtree & Evelyn bags available as gifts with purchase between 15 June – 17 July 2011. The minimum purchase of RM250 will get you a Hello Kitty Cosmetic bag. To get the Rosewater x Hello Kitty bag (pictured right) minimum spend is RM450 and to get the large Iris x Hello Kitty bags (pictured left) minimum spend is RM1,000. Ouchies! Strictly for fans only I guess.
L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream with SPF18 now comes in a pump
When I was in my drugstore skincare brand phase, I used to use the L’Oreal Revitalift White cream and serum. It was introduced to me by a friend who liked it, and I went through at least 3 tubs of cream and 2 bottles of serum before I started getting fickle. It worked well for me and I was quite happy with it although it never quite did anything for my spots. It worked well enough on my skin though and it was easy on the pocket. The day cream now comes in a pump form, which I am more partial to, because its easy to use, and more hygienic. Strangely enough, it also costs more. Go figure!
L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream (Tub) RM39.90/50ml and (pump) RM42.90/50ml
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen with Helioplex
I’d seen this one for a while actually. The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreens with Helioplex. It now comes in 2 colours – Even Skin Tone (skin tinted) and Anti-Dullness (purple tint). I’m never a fan of the skin tinted sunscreens because many of them are too dark for me. However, I have used anti-dullness sunscreens before, and the slight purple tint can help brighten your skin. Don’t believe me? Try it and see! 😉
Vichy Normaderm Nuit Night Cream
Vichy Normaderm now has a night cream. The tube looks similar to the normal Vichy Normaderm creams, except the whole tube include the cover is a dark green. The cream too has a light green tint. I was handed a sachet sample at a Monorail station recently (which was how I knew it existed) and I’ve been trying a small sample tube for a few nights. Personally I find it a little drying but it might be because I don’t have oily skin nor am I fighting serious pimples or stubborn spots. I actually think the regular one in a white tube works just as well if not better for me for clearing up mild spots.
Vichy Normaderm Nuit retails at RM49/30ml
Canmake Cheek & Cheek Blush
I used to be a big Canmake fan. Then the collection shrank to almost nothing in the local Watson’s and I never quite understood why. Many people did not like their eyeshadows, finding them too light and shimmery but I liked it. Had nearly every single Canmake Eyeshadow Trio released! Don’t have them anymore though 😛 But lately, I’ve been playing around with Canmake again (picked up the cream blush!) and I also spotted the very pretty looking Cheek & Cheek blush duos. Sasa stores have quite a good range and I believe Watson’s stores are also looking promising again. I was quite taken by these blush duos. They felt silky to the tough and the colours were soft and pretty. I haven’t picked up any because I’d picked up other stuff, but I plan to soon.
Canmake Cheek & Cheek blush duos retail at RM43.90 each at Watson’s (I think) and Sasa stores
If you have tried any one above, do share what you think of them. Or perhaps you are a Hello Kitty fan and would love to get your hands on the Crabtree & Evelyn collection? Its limited edition you know. Ah those 2 magic words 😛
I’m having a very busy day today oy! Friends coming over so I have to scrub-a-dub-dub! No fun!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

The Neutrogena sunscreen looks interesting. I’m using the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunblock now and it seems to agree with my skin. Would love to try the ones you put up on your blog here. Do you know if it’s on sale yet at the drugstores? Can’t recall seeing them on the shelves…
Its already on sale, as far as I know but they could be rolling them out in stages. I’ve seen them at pharmacies here. Curious about the Anti-dullness one 🙂
I like canmake too! I find their eyeshadow trios reasonably pigmented (in fact, more pigmented than kate or Majolica Marjoca) and their Quick Lash Curler works well to keep my stubbornly straight lashes curled all day. Their blushes are pretty good too.
I love(d) Canmake! They were adorable and affordable. I had some of their duo blushes before but these really have captured my fancy! 😀 Can’t wait to get them but waiting for a sale 😛
I hope the Maybelline eyeliner comes here – looks great and hopefully won’t dry out quickly (like my Bourjois one).
I’m sure it will soon 🙂 Just hope it won’t be too pricey when it does!

Thanks Paris B! I use the USA/Middle East versions of the Neutrogena sun screen – haven’t seen the ones here. Will be on the lookout!
I’m not sure if they are available outside of Asia but its always worth a look if you’re in the Middle East! 😀
I was at Guardian last night during lunch time. Saw the Maybelline Eyeliner Pen and tried the tester. The brush was a tad too short for my liking because i tend to use the eyeliner pen by using the sides of the brush instead of the sharp edge of the eyeliner pen (if you know what i mean). If only it was half an inch longer!
I still like NYX’s Felt Tip Liner! Argh, gotta get a new one – mine’s dried out already!
Ooh I use the side of the nib to line too! Its so much easier 🙂 I thought the nib was a bit soft. I prefer something a little less flexible. But we’ll see 🙂
Thank goodness I’m no Hello Kitty fan either. Ain’t it just ridiculous for them to set a spending of $1000 for it. Over here in SG the equivalent is a spend of 360. Wonder how’s the quality of the bags really.
No idea how the bags hold up but for the RM1000 you get every bag in the collection (about 4/5 bags and pouches) which for a collector may not be that big a deal LOL! But yes like you I could never do it.
Hm, I don’t think I have seen Canmake in Watsons for a long while now, last Fri i dropped by MV’s Watson, no sign of it, only Sasa has it 🙁 The blush is pretty and I did picked one up tee hee 😛
Ooh you got the blush! Tell me if I should 😛
