Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Eyeshadow Palette

The Kat Von D Saint + Sinner Eyeshadow Palette took a long time to complete and it is one of Kat Von D's masterpiece in her makeup collection. Unlike other celebrities' branded makeup, KVD is hands-on in the production of her makeups and took the time to design the packaging by herself and directly involve in the creation and testing. This is why the brand is known for its beautiful goth packaging and high-quality control. And so, I do have a high expectation on this palette.


Coming back to the palette, it is said that the packaging was inspired by cathedral's windows. But to me, it reminds me of the symmetrical alignment when I first stepped into Notre Dame. Nonetheless, we can all agree that it does have the gothic cathedral feel to it. It is made of cardboard and inside it holds two long mirrors on the side.


As you open the palette, doves flying off, angels sing and the organ starts playing. I may be exaggerating, but the palette is really pretty. The selections of the eyeshadow color are inspired by stain glasses. On the Saint part, it is full of soft and subtle hues. Meanwhile, the Sinner side has more dynamic and popping colors.


Saint


L-R: Absolution, Worship, Immaculate, Chalice, Sacred Heart, Amen, Sanctuary, Heaven, Crucifix, Cathedral, Rosary, Baptism

Absolution - Pale white with metallic sheen with lots of gold feckless glitter. It is designed to be worn on top of other shades for glittery effects.
Worship - A satin finish plum shade.
Immaculate - Olive green satin finish.
Chalice - Bronze/dirty gold satin finish with gold glitter.
Sacred Heart - A medium brown with an orange undertone and slightly pinkish finish. This is a pretty color which you can rarely find in other palettes.
Amen - A matte yellow undertone beige. The formula is patchy on this one.
Sanctuary - A bronze with warm red undertone.
Heaven - Warm tone silver with lots of silver glitters.
Crucifix - Dark chocolate matte finish with neutral undertone.
Cathedral - Grayish silver with lavender undertone and lots of silver glitters.
Rosary - Dark maroon with a satin finish.
Baptism - Pink undertone beige with a matte finish. It very chalky and not apparent on fairer skin tone.


Sinner


L-R: Rapture, Sabbath, Ashes, Martyr, Devil, Revelation, Vestment, Ministry, Exodus, Exorcism, Relic, Stigmata

Rapture - Pink satin sheen with pink glitters.
Sabbath - Matte finish charcoal black. The shade is not intense black which is good for blending.
Ashes - Light ashy taupe with lime green sparse glitters. This is another rare shade.
Martyr - Yellow undertone brown with matte finish.
Devil - Clay brown with orange undertone with matte finish.
Revelation - Medium brown with yellow gold glitters.
Vestment - Seaweed green of satin finish with dark brown undertone.
Ministry - Royal blue with black undertone with satin finish.
Exodus - Matte lime green with yellow glitters.
Exorcism - Deep purple with matte finish.
Relic - Yellow gold with satin finish with compact gold glitters.
Stigmata - Warm red with satin finish.


Overall, the matte shades didn't perform well and appear to be patchy. However, the satin/metallic finishes are extremely buttery and blend really well. Some of the shades are rare and unique. I find some dupes that appear on the Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda Palette.




This palette is 100% vegan, not tested on animals and formulated without parabens. Animal lovers will be extremely delighted to hear about this practice. Rest assured, the quality is not compromised. This is my first Kat Von D eyeshadow and I must say I am really impressed with the colors and the long hour it lasted on my eyes.

Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda Review


Everything about the Too Faced Christmas collection screams ORGANIZATION! It is very unlikely to have "organization" for a holiday theme but it works for Too Faced. In the previous years, we have seen New York, Paris & White Christmas in their holiday sets, I guess this year we are having a breath of fresh air on the theme.

I got myself the Boss Lady Beauty Agenda set because I was attracted to the planner that comes with the set. This makeup set comes with:
  • an eyeshadow palette
  • deluxe sized Melted Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sell Out
  • a deluxe size Better Than Sex Mascara
  • a 2018 planner 
  • a faux leather agenda cover to hold the planner


For this review, I will only focus on the eyeshadow palette and the planner.


I'm not sure if anyone realized it... The eyeshadow palette reminds me a lot of the last year's Christmas in New York - The Chocolate Shop palette. But when I retrieve the old palette out of my drawer, I discover that this new palette is actually a combination of all the Too Faced palettes that ever produced. What a bummer! The difference is so minor that you can't tell if you're using it on your eyes. If you already have all of the Too Faced palettes before, I highly advise you to skip this.


Marshmallowed, Snow Day, Christmas Dream, Iced Out
Marshmallowed and Snow Day are matte texture and both appear quite patchy and dry. Christmas Dream is a sweet pink in satin finish. While Iced Out is an aluminum silver with silver sparkles.

Spiked Cider, I Want It All, Love Actually, Faux Fur Only
This row contains daily wearables shadows. Spiked Cider is an orangy brown in matte. I Want It All is a muted soft sand brown with very sparse light pink sparkles, Love Actually (my favourite) is a tea rose pink, and Faux Fur Only is a dusty brown shade in matte.

Don't Give A Fudge, Give Me S'more, Pinecone, Jolly
Don't Give A Fudge is a mocha brown in matte. Give Me S'More is a muted soil brown with sparse blue and purple sparkles. Pinecone is a muted burgandy in matte and Jolly (my favourite) is a muted royal blue.

Halo, Deck The Malls. Slay Bells, Fa La La La La
Halo (my favourite) is one of the most pigmented shadows from the bunch. It is a metallic champagne color that is very reflective. Deck The Malls is a purplish grey that is suitable for creating definition. Slay Bells is a salmon pink with tiny reflective gold particles. It resembles the shade Just Peachy from the Sweet Peach palette. Fa La La La La is a warm tone grey with tiny purple sparkles. This entire line can create a very pretty wedding look.

Party Over Here!, Trimmed Plum Pudding, Glittered
Party Over Here! is a warm old gold tone with high reflective. It also appears to be the most buttery formula compared to the rest of the shades. Trimmed is a green satin with dark brown undertone. Plum Pudding is a maroon purple satin finish. Glittered is a silver with silver particles, very much similar to Iced Out, except it has lesser sparkles but more prominent satin finish.

Unwrap Me, Santa's Helper, Christmas Carol, Black Tie
UnWrap Me is an unpredictable shade. On the pan, it looks like a purple, but once swatched on the hand, it looks extremely Barbie pink with a satin finish. Santa's helper is a dark olive-brown shade with tiny blue and purple sparkles. Christmas Carol is a true royal blue with grey undertone. Black Tie is a muted black, it is not very pigmented so it is good to use as a build up for smokey look.

#Blessed, Will You Merry Me?, Chocolate Soleil
At the end of the palette, there are the bonuses - highlighter, blush and bronzer. The highlighter called #Blessed is a very reflective metallic champagne with lots of sparkles. It is one of those in-the-face highlighter that can be seen from space. Will You Merry Me? is a blush that resembles NARS Orgsm. It has a peach undertone with lots of gold sparkles. Chocolate Soleil is a matte bronzer. I'm glad they did this in matte otherwise there are too much sparkles in this pan.


Lastly, the Melted Matte Longwear Lipstick in Sell Out is a bonus. I love this deluxe size lipstick because I am able to try it out before getting a full size. I really love this as a matte liquid lipstick. I have personally used it and it is long lasting and does not dry out on the skin. I totally recommend this, and even thinking of getting one full size during Black Friday.'


On the planner, I did a flip through video below which you can see for yourself. I personally think it is too juvenile and not suitable for old girls like me. I don't regret getting because it is really beautiful and I can see that a lot of work was put into getting the planner done. I just don't think that I want to use this in the public because it doesn't reflect my age.


Anyway, do leave me a comment what you think about the palette or the journal. I would love to hear what you have to say.

What Makeup Products I Really Use


I have tonnes of makeups at home, and I won't lie, I don't reach out to all of it. And if you ever wonder what are the products I use most, it is as seen in the photo above. Let me go through it one by one.

Eyeshadow - Too Faced Peach Palette


Initially, in my review <<read here>>, I have a very impartial review. But after having to use it for awhile, I begin to have some favourite shades in the palette. I often use the shades Luscious, Candied Peach, Bellini, Peaches n' Cream, Puree & Summer Yum. I've marked them below so you have an idea what those shades look like.

One of the discovery I made from this palette is that you need to apply eyeshadow primer (I use Urban Decay Primer Potion) to be able to blend it properly. Besides that, you also need a good blending brush (I use M.A.C. 217) to work with it.



Foundation - Born This Way Foundation

Another Too Faced product that I really enjoy using is the Too Faced Foundation. If you are looking for a hydrating foundation that gives medium to full coverage, look no more. This is by far the best foundation for normal to dry skin.

Eyebrow - Smashbox Brow Tech To Go

Back in 2012, I have featured this brow product before <<evidence here>>. After so many years, I am still loyal to it. One of the reasons why I like it is the triangle shape of the pencil lead. It is automatic, so I don't have to sharpen it all the time. In my opinion, it is one of the easiest brow product to use.


Eyeliner - Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

I love the KVD Tattoo Liner because it is long lasting. However, I feel like it isn't the best eyeliner ever, but the best of what I've got at the moment. The brush tip is easy to manoeuvre and it can create the thinnest line with a single swatch.


Highlighter - Hourglass Iridescent Strobe Lighting Powder in Ambient

I've gone over and over again about how great this highlighter is <<full review read here>>. And I'm not the only that thinks so. Even Tati mentioned that this is a magic highlighter in her "Tati approved" video. If you don't believe me, at least believe Tati, she's the expert in makeup. And if you don't believe us both, go try it yourself. If you go to Sephora at the check-out counter, there is a small travel sized Hourglass highlighter which you can get at a fraction of the price.

Lipstick - Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick

I have been using this lipstick as my daily wear because it has a matte texture, but not too drying. The shade Rich Truffle is perfect for the daily look because it is not very outstanding. Besides that, the lipstick lasts a long time as long as I don't eat greasy food.

Blusher - Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

This is the best blush in the world. Apparently, it is made of clay and the substance makes the colour stand out for a long time. Don't take my word for it because I didn't do any research on that. However, the long-lasting part is true. The blush stays as it is from the moment I put on until at night when I'm removing it. I always reach out for the shade Risque, which is a universally flattering shade.


Mascara - Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

No, this is not a mascara I would recommend. I got it from one of those holiday set and it has been doing a fair job in giving volume to my lashes. I find the wand a bit bulky and tend to clump my lashes after I go through a few coats.


Well, those are the makeup products I've been using almost daily. Do let me know what is the makeup product that you will go for on a daily basis. I would love to know which product made it to your favourite list.

SUGAO スガオ Latest J-Beauty Makeup Series

Rhotho-Mentholatum Malaysia launched its latest brand - Sugao, a Japanese makeup series that draws on naturality, sheer lightness and softness in achieving natural beauty.

The Sugao makeup series is available only at selected Watsons outlets.


Sugao スガオ, a Japanese word that denotes bare, natural face, offers young women including newbies a soft, tender and light makeup that gives a natural "transparent feeling". A Japanese based makeup line that exudes airy, natural, carefree and Asian character, Sugao aims not to only give skin's natural beauty a boost, but it also hopes to unleash the vibrant and energetic side of each female individual that mirrors the brand's image, which is young, simple and modern.




Sugao Air Fit CC Cream (Hero Product), RM69.90


Formulated with Rohto Patented Air-Fit Technology, the Sugao CC Cream comes in a light souffle-like texture that provides an amazingly light skin feel that spreads smoothly and evenly on the skin when applied. Contrary to any other CC Cream, this Air-Fit designed CC Cream covers pores and uneven skin softly with only a thin layer of 0.01mm. Moreover, at the same time absorbs excess sebum on skin surface effectively, which makes it ideal for long hour application. This Air Fit CC Cream (with both smooth and moist options respectively) leaves skin breathable with an airy, beautiful finish while at the same time brightens the skin with soft shades colours. It also comes with colour-correct powder which diffuses light and creates a soft- effect to blur visible pores, fine lines and rough skin.

The Air Fit CC Cream is also available in Pink Bright shade that produces a soft-focus effect upon application to give skin a slightly pinkish tone. The 4-in-1 Sugao Air Fit CC Cream contains SPF23 PA+++, and is free of fragrance and alcohol and also as a makeup base.



Sugao Cheek and Lip, RM59.90


Sugao Cheek & Lip comes in light, fluffy souffle-like texture that melts onto skin for soft flash of colour. It is formulated with pink bright changeable powder to create a natural rosy cheek and bright looking lip. Available in 3 colours (Natural Red, Active Orange, & Brilliant Pink), this 2-in-1 hybrid formula can be applied on the cheeks as well as on the lip. All you need is just to scoop an adequate amount of the moouse using your fingers and gently touch on the cheeks before applying in a circular motion to blend. You may also apply the Sugao Cheek and Lip on your lip in exchange for a brighter, healthier looking lip effect.



Sugao Lip Tint, RM45.90


The Sugao Lip Tint, which are available in 3 different colours, namely Juicy Red, Sweet Pink and Apricot Pink comes in water-like texture that provides a light, comfortable and weightless feel on lips. Sugao Lip Tint is long-lasting and stays on lips without smudging.



Sugao Chiffon Powder, RM64.90 (Photo unavailable)


This is a fluffy, light and finely grained powder that wraps gently on your skin with a feeling of lightness and transparency, just like wearing a chiffon veil. It absorbs sebum effectively and reduces oil on the skin surface, keeping you skin fresh all day long. Once applied, the Sugao Chiffon Powder helps brighten the skin as it balances uneven skin tone, leaveing you skin feeling flawless.

Colourpop x My Little Pony Entire Collection Review & Swatches


A true, true friend is a friend indeed!

I have so many emotional excitement rolling in my stomach when I knew that Colourpop is collaborating with Hasbro on the My Little Pony collection. I have so many sentimental memories of My Little Pony. If you're a girl in your 30's, you would feel the same. I'm not sure if you can feel my excitement from reading my post, but I just want you to know, I spent half hour on photoshop to make that display post on the top.



Overall I think this is a beautiful collection. There are some hit and miss in between but as a fan of My Little Pony, I totally approve everything. They could improve some of the things, such as including blusher and pick a better colour option for the eyeshadow palette. This is my very first Colourpop product and I can't compare with their usual products. Do bear with my first experience with the brand as a whole.

Colourpop My Little Pony 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette






The star of the collection is obviously the eyeshadow palette. I am not feeling the vibe of My Little Pony from the colour selection. If it is a pan in a different packaging, I wouldn't be reminded of the cartoon at all. I hope there's light blue, pink and yellow in the palette. But this is what we get...

I want to talk about this palette separately in another post because some of the colours perform better and some are disappointing. Overall, I think you can achieve really colourful eyes with using just this shadow.


Brush Set



I'm not into the brush set because it feels like a toy makeup brush. The handle is short, the bristles aren't dense enough. I tried the brushes and it is not impressive as well. For traveling, the size suits to be carried around. If you're a makeup noobie then you may find these brushes useable. Otherwise, I think you can skip it entirely. It costs USD22 for the set, which is not cheap.


Powder Highlighter




These highlighters cost only USD8 each and it is amazing! Trickles (pink) is very similar to the Hourglass highlighter that I am using. The pink base will make your face flush and I recommend you to try out the highlighter yourself. Starflower (orange) has an orange base which suits darker skin tone.


Ultra Matte Lip




There are three shades of matte lip range in this collection. Moondancer - a blackened plum, dark maroon colour. Lemon Drop - A bright cool-toned lavender. I'm not sure why they call it lemon drop when there is no hint of yellow at all. It is more of a muted lilac. Pin Wheel - a vibrant cool-toned fuschia. I've heard many good things about the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip, it is not drying and long lasting. I will write a separate review on this.


Ultra Glossy Lip




You also get three lip gloss in the collection. Flutter Valley - golden undertone with tones of hot pink and gold glitter. Dream Castle - metallic fuschia blue, violet and gold glitter on top. Ponyland - lilac slightly sprinkled with pink and gold glitter. I am not a fan of lipgloss but these three glosses have the most amazing colour, especially Flutter Valley and Dream Castle.


Super Shock Shadow



The Colourpop Super Shock Shadow is another of their star item. Compared to the powder eyeshadow, the Super Shock Shadow is very soft and moist, so it glides easily without effort and has a buttery texture. You will get 3 shades in the set. Posey - Soft pinky beige with silver, pink and gold glitter. Sunbeam - Pastel lavender drenched with violet, hot pink and iced blue glitter. Cherries Jubilee - Opalescent pink with hot pink glitter.


Makeup Bag



Lastly, we have the makeup pouch that made of iridescent lilac purple faux leather. It has a very cute Little Pony zipper and a rainbow hardware. Everything screams My Little Pony with this makeup pouch. Although this makeup bag is very cute, I think it is pretty expensive for USD18.

I'm not sure which product I should review first. If you can help me to vote which product you would like to read a separate review one, that would help me a lot...
