TF Cream Color For Eyes – 08 Spice

Love this. So pigmented. So soft and creamy. Its like a mousse and a little is all you need. Which is quite hard to obtain, unless you have tiny fingers.

Spice is a beautiful bronze shade. It is shimmery. Can be faded for daytime use or pile on for a dramatic look. It takes time for the cream to set.


MAC Brow Duo – Brunette

I wanted to buy some shadows that can be used for the brow too. I used to get Inglot shadows and I did plan to get more. But the shop in Singapore close down. Pity.

As time pass, you just seems to find yourself not suited to some colours. Like if you get a tan or change your hair colour; the colour you use just don’t suit anymore.

So far, for now greyish tone work best for me. So I am glad that these actually work. I cannot remember how much I bought this for. There are 2 shadows, coquette and brun. Coquette is a satin muted greyish taupe. Brun is a satin muted black brown. I tend to ignore brun. I usually go with the greyish taupe kind of shade.

It’s a good product. And you can use it as eye shadows too. Cannot go wrong with MAC shadows.

Dior Eyeshadow Palette – 508 Nude Pink Design

Dior so pretty, shadows so soft. But I just cant get it to stay on my lids. This palette has a liner (5), which is nice. It is a deep brown shade, but looks more light when drawn.

The base (1) is a soft pink. The colour (2) is a sparkly pink. The shadow (3) a nice warm taupe. The highlight (4) is a sparkly pink base. It just sparkle, but that is pretty much it.

The colours are soft and can be slowly build up. But the sparkle make it hard to have a proper eye look without going to blind anyone. I find that the colours do fade and all is left is the glitter. So this is not a palette for me. No matter how pretty.

Solone Classic Eyeshadow Kit Tipsy Eyes

This is the kind of eyeshadow palette I would not be buying anymore. But this was given to me by a friend and it’s surprisingly good. I know the review was good, but I just wasn’t really interested in picking this up myself. Quite glad I get to try it though.

It’s a small tin with 6 mini shadows and two bigger base shadows. The base is matte white and a shimmery peach. The mini shadows are all shimmer except for one matte brown. It’s a good neutral enough shades with highlights of lilac. I don’t really use those shades, but it’s fun to have around.

Shadows are pigmented and not much fall out. Blends nicely and mix well. Simple to use and good to have for your bag. It’s just compact. And if you break it, you won’t feel so heart pain as this is not that expensive.

Beauty Bakerie Eyescream – Crumb Cake

I really like this eyescream. It’s really very velvety, long lasting and waterproof. It only takes a couple seconds to set the shadow. It’s good for when you are in a rush or you just want something budge proof but it’s bad if you plan to smudge your eye shadows. I guess this can be used as a base. 

Crumb cake is a neutral brown shade. It’s good for no fuss shade on the lid. It’s easy to apply, and it just gives a nice a neutral shade without it looking too obvious. It’s good for daily use. 

This is 3g, and cost $24 so it’s rather pricey. But I still think it’s worth it. 

Make Up Store Microshadow – Marilyn 

Is glittery eyeshadow back in fashion again? It just seems that there is a lot of glitter nowadays. This one is not exactly a glitter shadow. But if you blend it, it will glitter away. It’s a pretty lilac shadow. More light grey actually. You can wear it blended or use your finger to tap it for a more pigmented look. 

Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue – Light/Medium

Bought this cause I wanted Stila and I don’t want to buy their lipgloss. I decided to try this pallete which cost £23.33 after tax rebate. Was contemplating if I should get the fair/light or light/medium. I wanted light eyeshadows and a natural flushed cheeks kind of colour. In the end I bought the light/medium cause I think it’s better to play it safe. 

The shades are pretty similar but I think the lightest blush shade will be too light on me and the base colour the same. For this one, both the blushes are quite soft but it still swatches well. It’s not so pigmented when you pick it with brush. So it’s good for the subtlety that I wanted. The pink one charming is a matte blush, hardly show up on my cheeks though. So I have to use the right brush to pick this product up. But on certain lighting, you can see the colour on the cheeks. It’s just not obvious. The nuetral one is call angelic – a terracotta shade. 

The eyeshadows are also very light. This palette is good for everyday use. To use it for night time, you just have to layer them or use your fingers. You can use the shadows wet which will intensify the colours. Only the highlighter and the lid shadows have shimmer, the rest are matte. 
base – artistic
highlight – dazzling
crease – spontaneous
lid – ambitious
liner – mischievous

The shadows pigments have a lot of fallout. So it’s quite annoying to apply when you are in a hurry. A wet version should be better. But in the end as long as you pad the shadows in place, there should not be a problem. 

I would not purchase this if I had known. I don’t regret having it but there are better palletes out there. This is just compact and no hassle of brush, highlights and bronzer which I don’t really need in my palette. The gold packaging is nice, but I wish it doesn’t have the leopard print on it. Oh well, doesn’t matter. I will still bring this palette as an oversea-trip-all-in-one-makeup for daily use. I mean most of the time I don’t bother with makeup, but you never know when you need to dress up. So it’s just handy to have this. 

Sephora Birthday Trio Eye Shadow Singles

This is a nice tiny trio of eyeshadows. I wish that they are just metal pan. But I understand not everyone has a z palette or something. So the tiny twistable container is fine I guess. Will be better if it pop up instead though. Cause it’s easy to lose the cover if it is removeable. 

The colours are nice. Movie Popcorn a shimmer yellow beige. It appears more white though. Be on the A-list is a shimmer taupe brown. It’s brown but on the lighter shade of brown. I guess a nuetral. It bag is a shimmer copper. All shades are pretty and very pigmented. It’s good on its own and can be worn as a trio of colours. They are good shadows and a great way to try out Sephora’s own shadows without buying them. 

Now I have to decide to remove them into a z or leave them on their own. 

Painterly Paint Pot

Bought this on a whimp. All I had was pictures and swatched online. I wanted either Painterly or Groundwork. In the end I settled with Painterly. It’s a beige nude. It’s actually a cream eyeshadow which can be used as a base cause of the shades. It’s more brightening on my lids, so it’s nice. It gives my lids a neutral base. Usually I don’t use anything on my lids, so sometimes it will look oily. This prevents that. 

I got this at their sale at $30.40. The original price in Singapore is $38 for 5g worth of product. But I think that this can last forever. Not sure if it will go dry on me. I always tighten the cap real packed. Hopefully that will help. 

I Love My Shu Shu Palette

This is a 2015 limited edition palette from Shu Uemura. It cost Us$69, so it’s rather pricey. I was given this and kept this in the box until a month a guy. So I’ve been playing with it for awhile now and it’s not something I would use. It’s just too colourful for me. I like the pigments on the shadows, but the colour is just not me. It has 2 great purple shadows, and a gorgeous deep forest shade but I feel that you still need a nuetral palette to complete a look. And there’s a light pink highlight, which is darker on the pan. 

The blush is a nice pink. Very pigmented too. It’s wearable so that’s good. It’s a fun palette. Definitely good to bring out for summer fun. Plus they do last well on the face. But yah, it’s just not my cup of tea.
