Etude House Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara Review

Rabu, Oktober 31, 2012

I don't know why I buy a lot mascaras recently. A lot means more than one, not more than five, okay? I think because I want to make my lashes look long and curl, not straight down as what it always looks. -_- So Etude House released its newest makeup collection around one or two months ago, and one of them is this Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara. As soon I saw the advertising picture, I think I need to get one! It's not exactly what I'm looking for, but 3 step mascara is something I have to test xD

Pinky box. I love the bow! 

Description from the box:
With its breakthrough adjustable dial, 3 Step Volumecara provides 3 settings for 3 volume looks in 1 mascara, letting you customize your own lash style!

Step 1: Defined, clean volume.
Step 2: Full, glamorous volume.
Step 3: Dramatic, smoky volume.

[Directions] 1. Hold the bottle in one hand and turn the center part until desired setting. 2. Apply a layer of mascara from the base of lashes and wiggle brush up to the tip of lashes. 3. Repeat with the next setting to build more volume.

[Ingredients] Water, Acrylates Copolymer, Iron Oxides (Cl 77499), Paraffin, Kaolin, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Beeswax, Stearic Acid, Behenyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Tromethamine, Milk Protein Extract, Glycerin, Acacia Senegal Gum, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, 1,2-Hexanedol, Hydroxyethlcellulose, Isostearic Acid, Dimethicone, Silica, Inositol, Butylene Glycol, Glycine, Serine, Glutamic Acid, Aspartic Acid, Leucine, Alanine, Lysine, Arginne, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine, Valine, Threonine, Proline, Isoleucine, Histidine, Methionine, Cysteine, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol.

[Net wt] 9.5g (0.33 oz)

Dara is very pretty here >.< Love her makeup and hair colour <3

This is the tube. It's not too tall and pretty fat. The pink part is the dial part. You have to turn the dial and stop the step part at the stop sign.

I just want to show you the closer look of the name. :p

This is the stop part i'm talking before. Just place what step you want to the stop part and twist out the brush xD

Crown logo at the top of the tube. Sorry for the blur pic ._.

This is how it looks like when we turn the dial part and turn the upper part. The dial part can't be separated from the tube, unlike the upper part for the brush.

The mouth of the tube is too small for the brush so it will get dirty easily by the liquid. I think the mouth of the tube need to be clean regularly.

Step 1 is to create defined and clean volume. That's why it has so little mascara on it.

Step 2 is to create full and glamorous volume. It has more mascara compared to step 1, and it adds length! Volumizing and lengthening at the same time.

Step 3 is to create dramatic and smoky volume. Of course it has a lot more mascara compare to the two previous steps. :D

This is my lashes. I realized now my lashes are not that short anymore, it's longer. I don't know is there any permanent effect from using mascara? But I'm liking it :D But it's still not curl so that's the problem :|

Here are the after photos for each step:

I really like this mascara, especially for the step 3! My lashes thickened and looks darker, it's just like i'm using falsies. xD I think this one is better than Maybelline The Falsies Mascara. The formula is wet, especially for the step 3, so you have to be careful or else the mascara smudge to your lids (just like my step 3 photo :p). I'm in a rush when using the step 3 at the photo so yes the result was a bit messy. Besides, it tends to clump at the step 3 and it's not waterproof. Okay I won't complain for the non-waterproof thing because the price is relatively fair for such an innovative product. XD

What I like:
 pretty packaging (as always!)
 three-in-one from clean to smoky volume
 lengthening at the same time
 easy to remove with eye & lip makeup remover
 doesn't irritate my eyes
 the price is relatively affordable

What I dislike:
 not waterproof
 can be clumpy at the Step 3

In my opinion, Etude House Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara is really worth to try. It gives volume depend on what kind of look do you want to achieve. Moreover, the dial part is so fun! It's something new to me. Hahhaa.. I don't know whether there is another mascara that is also has this system but I like it. Super practical and super cute packaging. ^^

So have you tried this mascara?

Miomi Super Nudy Brown Review

Minggu, Oktober 28, 2012

Wanted to try other brand besides Geo, so I purchased Miomi Super Nudy Brown. What's great is it comes with cute bunny lens case :D

Color (4/5):
The brown colour is very soft. And sometimes I think it looks like grey colour more than brown colour. Hahaha.. The colour is great to achieve that bling bling eye look.

Pattern (4/5):
The pattern is very natural and blends well into my eyes. It doesn't look too fake on my eyes. I still prefer natural color lens like black or brown to blue or green colour.

Enlargement (2/5):
Since it's a 14.5 mm lens, I can't hope too much for the enlargement effect. But still better than not wearing lens at all :3

Comfort (2/5):
After wearing it for about 3 hours, I started to feel discomfort on my eyes. I have to use eye lens drop to make it feel better. 

Overall, this lens is okay for everyday look, when you don't want to look too obvious that you are wearing lens. Too bad that it makes my eyes feel dry after 3 hours so I don't use this lens too much now. I still prefer Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown. 

That's all I wanna share about this lens. Thank you for reading ^^


Tony Moly Catchu Wink Lipstick #1 and Lipgloss #5 Review

Sabtu, Oktober 27, 2012

Introducing you to my favourite lip products at the moment from Tony Moly: Catchu Wink Lipstick and Lipgloss. I love cat, they are so cute. Although I don't have one because my mom doesn't allow me to have any pet, I still love to see them :3 So when I know Tony Moly launched new Catchu Line, I want to have all of them >.< But what I have until now are still these two hahhahaa.. Let me share with you one by one, started from the lipstick. :)

1. Tony Moly Catchu Wink Lipstick #1 Peach Vanilla

The lipstick comes in a box. L-R, U-D: front, right, back, left. When I took a close look at the back of the packaging, I can see there is an expiry date: 20150524. Still a long way to go xD

Description (taken from www.cosmetic-love.com):
Lively color, smooth texture, do not emphasize lip's dead skin cells, makes lip look curvy, delicious fruits fragrance. 

Size: 3.5gr

There are 7 colours available: Peach Vanilla, Pink Wink, Pink Cat, Coral Pop, Red Cat, Orange Pop, and Salmon Pink.

It's a black lipstick tube with a cat face and ears, looks really similar with the Cats Wink Mascara! So adorable <3

The color looks very pretty in the tube, right? xD

using Catchu Wink Lipstick #1

It has a glossy finish and peach scent. It's not as creamy as my Peripera lipstick, but still glides on smoothly on my (sometimes) dry lips. It doesn't sink into the lines. I love the colour, it looks really natural on my pale lips. The colour is as its name stated: peach colour but with a pink hint. Nothing extraordinary about the staying power, just like other lipstick, it fades away after 2 or 3 hours. It moisturizes enough and doesn't make my lips drier. Overall, I love this lipstick. It's ready on my bag if I need to re-apply it :D

2. Tony Moly Catchu Wink Lipgloss #5 Bling Pink
Description (taken from www.cosmetic-love.com):
Easy to apply, long lasting, no stickiness, contain vitamins and marine collagen. Pretty applicator. 

There are 10 colors available: Baby Pink, Jelly Pink, Dancing Red, Happy Coral, Bling Pink, Glam Muse, Wonder Orange, Glam Beige, Fanta Orange, and Bling Red.

Unlike the lipstick, it doesn't come in a box. To show that it's a brand new lipgloss, it's sealed in plastic. I really really love the soft pink cat-shaped cap. It's cuter than the black one, don't you agree? xD

Here is the doe foot applicator. It's a bit different with other lipgloss applicator that I have, it's slanted on both sides that makes the application easier in my opinion. Besides, the color of the applicator is PINK! Hahaha.. Usually lipgloss applicator is standard, no colour, but this one is in pink colour. Love it <3

using Catchu Wink Lipgloss #5 Bling Pink

The lipgloss has a nice smell of hmmm gum maybe? The scent is very familiar but somehow I forget what scent it is. I think it's a gum scent. :D The colour is something I've been searching for, I love bling bling lipgloss, and of course I love soft pink colour! xD The lipgloss is not sticky at all, feels lightweight on my lips and keeps moisturized my lips for around two hours. 

using Catchu Wink Lipstick #1 then layer it with Catchu Wink Lipgloss #5

I love both the lipstick and the lipgloss. I don't find anything that I don't like from them so it's a 5 from 5. :D
If you're a cat lover or just want something different from usual lipstick and lipgloss packaging, these would be a good choice. I'm thinking of adding other Catchu Wink line collections to my wish list since it's so cute and the quality is not bad. ^^
