Considerations in choosing a liquid matte lipstick + Cathy Doll Nude Me Liquid Lip Matte Swatches & Review

This might be a little late for the International Lipstick Day, but hoping to still hit the spot for lipstick lovers. 😀

Cathy Doll is a Korean-inspired brand that has been a favorite of many beauty enthusiasts all over Asia. Last June, I was lucky enough to have been given some of their items as a giveaway prize. Most of which have been launched on that same month to celebrate their first year anniversary.

What are your considerations when buying a liquid matte lipstick? Mine would include color & pigmentation, weight, ingredients, scent, longevity and price in no particular order. Taking these into account, let’s see how Cathy Doll Nude Me Liquid Lip Matte would fare. Please note that I am not an expert in makeup and reviews. I’m an enthusiast who’s happy and excited to try different products and these are my thoughts as a noob.

Yuki Skin Care Argan Tint | Review

Konnichiwa! Recently, I had been contacted by Ms. Faye Bermudo Alcazar of Yuki Skin Care. She asked if I would like to collaborate with her and review some of their products. I was so overwhelmed as that was the very first time someone reached out to me for a product review. I might have done something good. 😀

Most of the products in their line are for whitening and peeling. They also have a growing cosmetics line. She sent me a couple of items from their brand in exchange for my honest feedback. Some of which are these Yuki Skin Care Argan Lip & Cheek Tint in 15ml roll-on vials.

It arrived in this pretty pink satin pouch.

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

The Choute Essence Fit Stick Balm Foundation | Review

Since I got my Althea Korea haul some time ago, I’ve been itching to try them all. But I got a bit busy. Sorry for the delay.

There have been quite a number of stick foundation in the market for a some time now. Most of the Korean Stick Balm Foundation I’ve seen online claim to have skincare benefits and have built-in brushes which I find really cute and cool. The Choute Essence Fit Stick Balm Foundation is said to have 7-in-1 properties: BB Cream + CC Cream + Foundation + Concealer + Sun Cream + Pore Balm + Essence.

I’m used to using BB Cream which is a lot easier to deal with. Color matching is not a problem even if you are acidic, and application is best done using your clean fingers. I’m trying to go out of my comfort zone so here it is.

Beauty Haul | Althea Korea | March 2017

With my recently discovered enthusiasm for beauty products, I tend to browse online beauty shops A LOT. XD

The other day, I received my purchase from Althea Korea. I got them for really good prices too! So awesome! I really love how they carefully package the items so that they’ll arrive in perfect condition. Each, if not grouped together, is/are wrapped in bubble wrap, then cushioned with crumpled Japanese paper fillers. Items are shipped in a big sturdy pink box ,which is also encased in bubble wrap. Then everything is sealed in a thick pink plastic.

Here are the items inside the pretty box: Continue reading “Beauty Haul | Althea Korea | March 2017”
