L'oreal Colour Riche Balms Review

Hi everyone, I have a quick post for you today. I have mentioned several times on the blog that I like sheer lip colours, so I think it is only expected that I'll get my hands on the L'oreal Colour Riche Balms sooner or later. I mean.. products that gives me the "my lips but better" look are exactly my cup of tea.

Anyways, before I get into the review, I am going to do a little rant first. I bought these off ebay because these Colour Riche Balms are not released in Malaysia. They appeared sealed (with the little piece of sticker) but three of them have been opened and swatched!!!!! I have heard that there are no testers in US drugstores so sometimes people open the product to swatch the colour or maybe it's my seller but I really don't think so because the seller seems to have more than one of the product available.

I feel so disgusted and even though I sanitised the product twice before swatching them, I still feel icky to put it on my lips. To whoever who opens and swatches drugstore products, please stop doing it!!!!! It's so selfish and inconsiderate!!! There's loads of information and pictures available online FOR FREE, so why do you need to do that??? WHY?????

Ok, rant over, now the review.

Nature Republic Apple Dome Blusher (#1 Pink Apple & #2 Coral Apple), 4D Flower Powder (#2 Lucid Pastel) & Mango Bebe Lip Scrub Review

Hi everyone. Have you heard of a Korean cosmetics brand called Nature Republic? I didn't know that this brand is available in Malaysia but I stumbled upon the store when I was walking around in a mall. Needless to say I went in the store and picked up several items on impulse that I will review for you now(these unplanned purchases left me so broke T^T).

I purchased the Apple Dome Blusher in #1 Pink Apple and #2 Coral Apple, the 4D Flower Powder in #2 Lucid Pastel and the Mango Bebe Lip Scrub

Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher Review

Hi everyone. As many of you might already know, Etude House is one of my favourite Korean cosmetics brand. There's several reasons for it:one, there's quite a big store in a mall very close to where I live; two, the store has such a lovely interior that I always feel so happy whenever I go in; three, the packaging of the products are so cute and pretty.

So what am I reviewing for you today?? Jjang~~jjanggggg~~ It's the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blushers. I have eventually collected the entire range of colours so I think it's time to review it!!

Being a blush-addict, it's only understandable that I find these irresistible right?

Chanel Summer 2012 Collection: Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Powder (907 Sable Beige), Rouge Coco Shine (447 En Vogue & 437 Empreinte), Glossimer (337 Calypso) & Perfection Lumiere Review

Hi everyone. I am sure many of you living in the Northern hemisphere must be so excited for the arrival of summer. Even though summer is not my favourite season per se, summer makeup collections are in fact one of my favourite releases in the year.

I am going to review Chanel's summer 2012 makeup collection known as Summertime De Chanel today. Inspired by the warmth of the sun, this collection features products to help you create sun-kissed glowing skin as well as vibrant colours that will complement such radiant complexions.

This is quite a big collection for Chanel's standard. It contains:
  • 2 Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in 907 Sable Beige and 917 Sable Rose
  • 1 Ombres Contrastes Duo in 37 Sable-Emouvant
  • 1 Le Crayon Yeux in 47 Brun Intense
  • 1 Le Crayon Khol in 75 Peche Cuivre
  • 2 Rouge Coco Shine in 437 Empreinte and 447 En Vogue
  • 2 Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in 327 Sirocco and 337 Calypso
  • 3 Le Vernis Nail Colour in 597 Island, 607 Delight and 617 Holiday
There is also an Inimitable Waterproof mascara, Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid and the Rouge Coco Baume listed on the Chanel website but I think those are permanent items whereas everything else apart from the eyeshadow duo are limited edition.
 I got the Soleil Tan de Chanel in 907 Sable Beige, Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks in 437 Empreinte and 447 En Vogue, Glossimer in 337 Calypso and Le Vernis Nail Colour in 597 Island. I also have the Perfection Lumiere Foundation in 12 Beige Rose.

DIY Project: Bear Sock Doll (QQ寶貝熊)

Hi everyone. It's been a while since my last DIY project, which was a post on DIY suspender leggings (click) so I decided to share a new one with you today. I got this DIY sock doll kit(named qq寶貝熊/ sweet qq bear)when I was shopping in Kinokuniya and decided that I should try to make my own soft toy for the first time.  

This is a really image heavy post because I *tried* photographing every step of the process so let's get straight into it shall we? 

(Disclaimer: I do not have any rights on the design or pattern of the doll. All rights belong to the publisher, Booku Play and no copyright infringement is intended).

This is what I should hopefully end up with.
