So end result, a happy Elle~!
Mar 27, 2012Most days my makeup are quite simple, with a bold eyeliner wing. This is how I do it:
Above: Half close eyes with flashAbove: Open eyes with natural lightingBasic products that I used are above. Primer (Catalina Geo), Foundation (Garnier Light BB), Loose Powder (Lioele Secret Pore HD), Blusher (elf Berry Merry) and Eyeliner (Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner Pot).But the special thing that I always put on top of my wing eyeliner is Kate Eyeshadow BR-1.
So end result, a happy Elle~!
Mar 19, 2012My first encounter with Caudalie was about 4 years ago, 2008, when I swapped at makeupalley. It was the Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Mask (purple range). It was ok, or maybe I did not mask it enough hehe
Caudalie is from France. The basis of it's products are from grapes. The founders own a winery in France and they expand to developing skincare somewhere in 1993.
Last year, I was invited by Sasa Malaysia (organised by Sasa Hong Kong) to try out their new range, Caudalie Vinosource (pink range).
- Grape Water® extracted from organic grapes during harvesting rich in polysaccharides that have the ability to capture water and conserve the quantity it needs within its cells;
- Vinolevure® (exclusive to Caudalie) which is extracted from the walls of wine yeast with unique hydrating, strengthening and protective qualities and can conserve up to 100 times its weight in water; and
- Grape-seed Polyphenols, the most powerful anti-oxidants in the plant kingdom, they block 100% of free radicals and are 10,000 times more effective than Vitamin E.
Texture: Light cream but turn liquid upon face, light a wet mousse.
Absorption: Very quick. Leave no residue.
Smell: None for me
Ingredients: There are no harmful ingredients such as parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, coloring agents, mineral oils and silicones
Packaging: I love pumps because it is hygienic and great for travelling as it won't spill (I always keep caps). But this pump is not possible to open/detached from the bottle. So I can't really dig in for any last drop lol.
I have heard many experts saying that oily skin is also the result of dehydrated skin, as in not much moisture/water under the face epidermis. This medium size moisturiser lasted me about 2 months.
Verdict: I like it ^^ I will continue to use it. I have no breakout using this, except the occasional zits that occur prior menstrual. I do feel less oily on my face, but only a minimal less. It is not yet my personal HG moisturiser, but it can be considered. I'm looking forward to know my face condition after the 3rd bottle :)
Mar 14, 2012I have super oily face, and I usually look like a frying pan by late afternoon (that is if I did not blot away~). It was much worse in my early teens. It has been ages since I truly hold my palms to my face because of the oiliness and I always have a hard time cleaning smudges of foundation on me and hubs clothes grrr.
Above: Me (oil and shine alert!) & ChikoAbove: Lioele Secret Pore HD PowderMy mil and I was shopping in Far East, Singapore; and bought this for me! Liole is from Korea. I think they debuted with their famous bb cream in 2010. Now they have a whole range of products. The Lioele Secret Pore HD Powder is 15g of white silica powder and comes with a puffing pad, but I do not use it. I uses a brush to put the powder on my face, after my foundation. I love it~! Matte face here I come!
If you want to do without shine, try this Lioele Secret Pore HD Powder and share with me~
