PRODUCTS TOO BIG TO FIT IN THE FRAME! 😛

Jpeg

I bought this box of 8 pairs of false lashes and put it to good use on my co-stars during a stage play. They were cheap ones but I have forgotten the price. At most 2 to 3 uses then the band sort of starts pulling apart when I tried to take off excess glue. The band is thick and unwielding. Definitely not good falsies but they are thick and give the eyes a dramatic effect. Definitely not repurchasing this one.

How the lashes look.

This is the I ❤ Stage Eyeshadow Base from the brand Essence. I have reviewed it in the past. I plan on updating the post and re-blogging it but meanwhile read about it here! I have already repurchased this.

Jpeg

 This is an eyeliner that I bought from Daiso after watching a YouTube video but I didn’t really like it. I just used it to scribble on my hand with all those hand art stuff that I do and also draw on a moustache for a fellow stage actor. I find that it is not as smooth on the eyelids and tugs on the skin. Not repurchasing it (costs MyR 5.30).

Jpeg

This is the Silkygirl Perfect Stay 20HR Eyeliner. I have reviewed it before (link here) and in fact, it has shown up in another product empties post (link here) but the one in this picture was their limited edition packaging that I got for the fun of it. Purchased it at MYR 10. Don’t plan on repurchasing just because I do have other eyeliners to try out.

Jpeg

This is a lip balm from the brand Bell Star which I bought from my trip to Thailand (trip post here and haul post here). It was an ok lip balm, didn’t really do anything phenomenal for my lips nor was it all that bad. Even if I could I don’t think I’d repurchase this.

Jpeg

This is the Muji facial cottons, a cult classic in the beauty world. This is said to be a dupe for the Shiseido facial cottons. I do plan on reviewing it but at the moment, lets just say that I love it. It costs MYR 10.90 here in Malaysia. Yes, I have backups!

There’s one product which is not in the picture because I had tossed it away not knowing that I hadn’t put it into an empties post.

This is the Elianto Activewear Mascara which I have reviewed before so thank God I have a picture of it (review link here). I wouldn’t repurchase it because I have got at least 3 different unopened mascaras and one I am still working on.

Moving on to the two big products…

Jpeg

This is the Bath and Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist in Wild Madgascar Vanilla. It was given to me by my director as a token of appreciation for starring in his play. I freaking love this scent! Sweet vanilla scent, a lot like some scented lip products and some of you may know that I happen to love this (little things in makeup I love post). Yes, I have repurchased it (for MYR 38; original price MYR 73).

Jpeg

This was from the first haul I ever posted on FiercePaint (link here), I used it once and I hated it because it has an intense warming effect on the skin perhaps due to the fact that it claims to sculpt the body. However, when I started trying to loose weight, I just used by mixing it with my regular body shampoo. I still hated it and I have no idea if it actually “sculpted” my body. Not repurchasing it at the moment but I am very curious if continued usage may help. Hmmmppphhh. Cost; MYR 13.30.

Moving on to the rest of the bunch.

x-default

 This is a hand cream from the brand Eubos that was in one of my haul posts (link here) and I just could not get over how oily my hands felt everytime I used it, however, I found better use for it! I used it on my feet! Oh boy did it work wonders! Try it! I may just repurchase it for the feet exclusively (price; MYR 7.90 for a trial size)!

Jpeg

 This is the Biore Facial Foam in Pure Mild. It’s ok. Not great, not bad, not going to re-purchase. Costs MYR 10.80.

Jpeg

This is the Ponybrown Happy Sense Baby Whip hand cream. I’ve used up one before (product empties post link here). I like it because they absorb well into the skin and does not feel sticky. I do prefer the previous one but this is nice too. I won’t repurchase this because I do want to try others (cost MYR 19.90 for 3).

Jpeg

I got this Dettol Gold body wash trial pack from a dear friend, Daniel (hi love!!!). He purchased something else and got this for free, so he gave it to me. There appears to be gold flakes in it which, I am pretty sure, for a product this cheap cannot be real gold flakes. It was alright. Body feels clean. Thumbs up! May just purchase the full bottle if it isn’t too pricey.

Jpeg

This is the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner. This was featured in one of my haul post (link here). This burned my skin! But since it was a 60 ml bottle I powered through and finished it. Surprisingly didn’t dry my skin out and my skin did stay blemish free! I would repurchase but I simply cannot stand the burning sensation (original price MYR 13.70, purchased for MYR 6.85).

Jpeg

This is the Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser. This was featured in a haul post (link here) and I’ve used another in the white tube (product empties post link here). I kinda love this stuff. Plan on purchasing the full bottle when there’s a promotion (costs MYR 2.90).

IMG_7146

I pulled this picture from my archives because I forgot to shoot a close up picture! Damn it!!! Anyways, I featured this in a Products I Stopped Using post (link here) and also a hack post (link here). Click those two links to see how I ended up finishing this. Not repurchasing. Costs MYR 11.50, purchased for MYR 9.80.

Jpeg

I got this sample from Facial Malaysia (website link here and Facebook page link here). Nana, the person that runs Facial Malaysia is the nicest person ever! She sent me some skincare products from Paula’s Choice to try out for an honest review exchange and I absolutely loved them (review link here). This one was good too! It worked well and my skin did alright considering that I am very prone to razor burns because I don’t shave unless necessary (I typically trim my beard). If you need more information do check out the Facebook page and the website.

Jpeg

This is the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask which I won from Fiona of Street Love (the most read Malaysia beauty blog! Blog link here). I featured the product in a I Won post (link here). This nice rejuvenating mask revived my tired skin which was suffering from heavy makeup application. About repurchasing, I don’t think I would, only because it is so expensive here!

Phew!!! That was A LOT! Thanks for being with me guys!

Lots of love!

Rexona Motion Sense Antiperspirant.

I am a sweaty sweaty man! This helps! It is an antiperspirant spray so the scent doesn’t last long but it does help with my sweating. I usually buy them in twin packs and I’ll usually look out for a discount. It costs about MYR 13.50 but the twin pack can go down to about MYR 18. Definitely will repurchase this because it’s perhaps the most affordable one at the drugstore and I like the scent.

IMG_7612

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

My single best discovery of 2015! Needless to say I have repurchased this. I have also reviewed this (link here).

IMG_7603

Nivea Men Invisible Antiperspirant

If I have a long day, I do both (the aforementioned spray and this one)! I love this stuff too! I initially tried it out because it is the invisible type and sure enough it doesn’t stain and it does indeed help with the perspiration. Again, this comes in a twin pack which I have purchased for about MYR 16. So look out for discounts!

IMG_7627

IN2IT Line Definte Matte Liquid Eyeliner

I don’t particularly declutter my makeup collection regularly but I do like arranging them nicely and found this lying around all dried up so I decided get rid of it. One of the more affordable liquid liners that I like using. I have reviewed and also repurchased it (review link here).

Elizavecca Milk Piggy Black Head Solution (nose strip)

First of all, Korean beauty brands kill it with their packaging! This worked amazing for me! I actually saw the blackheads and all the gross stuff from my nose! I got this from Althea which is an online K-beauty company available in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Philippines. Their services in terms of shipping and customer relations are very professional and I recently was given an opportunity to shop on Althea in conjunction with their first birthday.

This is a face mask I got from the beauty box that I featured in my recent haul post (link here) by BFF – Asia Beauty and Style. I was pleasantly surprised after having used this because my face felt immediately bouncy and hydrated! I know nothing of the brand or where I can buy it from, so if anyone does, especially which stores in Malaysia I can buy it from, it’ll be greatly appreciated!

IMG_5206

I think I first saw this on Tati’s (GlamLifeGuru) channel and I wanted to get a full sized one but I never did see a promotion good enough to want to buy it. So when I saw these trial sized ones I picked it up. It was featured in one of my previous haul post (link here). Prices and where I bought it is all there. I love it. Your skin immediately feels softer and it has a pleasant scent.

IMG_5213

This is the Elianto liquid lipstick which I have already reviewed; details in that post (link here). I didn’t realise I had finished it but the other day I wanted to swatch it to see the consistency against another liquid lipstick and realised I could see right through the tube. I did use it many times for the stage play I was involved with and I guess I used it up.

IMG_5193

This is the Lipice lip balm in the apple flavour. I have reviewed this already; all details there (link here).

IMG_5200

This is the Essence Longlasting eye pencil. I have reviewed this as well; all details in that post (link here).

This time around I have got makeup empties! 😀

IMG_4448This is an eyebrow pencil from Daiso that I featured in my Product Regrets post (here). All details are there. I actually finished using it because I was just playing around with it on my hands and somehow it just reached the end… 😛

IMG20150730010438I wouldn’t repurchase it, however, I am keeping it because there’s a spoolie on the other end.

IMG_4450

IMG_4446This is the Essence Longlasting eye pencil in 01 (black fever). I have a review coming up soon on this. So stay tuned! I also finished it up because I used it to create this look on my friend.

IMG_20151202_171922I guess with the amount of black there (and 5 times over!), the pen was bound to run out.

IMG_4447This is the Silkygirl 20HR Perfect Stay Eyeliner in 01 (Blackest Black). I love this eyeliner and I have reviewed it already (here); all details are in that post. However, I am at my second pen and I have noticed something that I previously dismissed and updated my review. I did knock off a few points from my “Rating” for that reason. But I do love this eyeliner and like I’ve said, I already have a second pen!

IMG_4445I have reviewed this lip balm (here) and am a little on the fence with it. Repurchase? Not at the moment because I got a LOT of lip balms to try out and finish…

IMG_4444I loved how my nose felt after I stripped this pore pack off! However, I don’t really have blackheads problem so it seems a little unnecessary. I got this as a free gift with purchase. I may just buy a whole pack just for the sake of a facial treatment session.

Nivea Essential Care, Lip Balm Review

This is going to be another short review about another lip balm. I love lip balms! I have reviewed 3 lip balms thus far (here, here, and here). It is the one thing that I always end up finishing in my makeup stash. This lip balm is quite a popular one by Nivea and you may have seen it, well, everywhere!

Pictures! 🙂

I just started saving cardboard packaging because they tend to contain information. Clear plastic is a little more tricky to save or properly tear off in the first place.

The balm.

The balm.

Description:

It is a lip balm that contains shea butter that claims to protect lips from drying out. It appears white in the tube and swatches translucent.

Price: Retails for MYR 10.90 (prices could possible be lower with special discounts or offers and also depending on where you buy it).

Where to buy: It is available in most places that sell lip balm (almost every drugstore/pharmacy/hypermarket).

 

Pros:

It goes on very smoothly.

Has a nice vanilla scent.

Hasn’t caused me any problems or allergies.

Does prevent lips from drying out.

 

Cons:

It feels very waxy and so it can seem very heavy on the lips.

Melts with heat easily so caution needs to be exercised when traveling with it.

 

Note:

There are a few other things to note with this particular lip balm which I don’t really seem to have noticed with the three others I have reviewed. Some may appreciate it, others may not;

-It appear very glossy on the lips.

-The consistency almost feels like lip gloss on the lips once on.

-Application results in a thick layer of product on the lips.

 

Rating:

7.1/10

This is one of those products that if you like how it feels, you’ll like it. If you don’t then you’d hate it. So, it really depends. I have tried to give you as much information as I can so it is your prerogative!
