Beauty Blender + MARIO DEDIVANONIC


Now you can look like a movie star without the pricey services of a major make up artist. Introducing Beautyblender, the ultimate make up sponge applicator. Invented by top Hollywood make up artists Rea Ann Silva and Veronica Lorenz, Beautyblender has been created to leave you with a professional finish and a flawless complexion.

Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.


How

Blend your way to a flawless face! Seeing make up is the first sign of an amateur application. Beautyblender was created without edges in order to eliminate visible lines and streaks. So go ahead, experiment fearlessly with your Beautyblender and discover the many ways its unique shape will set you free!

Bounce Beautyblender against your face when applying make up. Bouncing, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Use Beutyblender's pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes. Use the round base for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin.

If you apply make up with your fingers you'll find that Beautyblender will smooth and refine your make up to provide a clean finish.

Use Beautyblender damp when applying wet/dry make up. When Beautyblender is wet it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use and place in the Beautyblender insert pedestal to dry. Beautyblender should not come in contact with extreme heat of any kind.

If you have problem skin Beautyblender works to cover blemishes. Use the pointed end and the stipple and twist technique to work make up into depressed areas of the face. The stippling and twisting action feathers out the make up's edges, leaving a perfect finish.



"Beautyblender helps the average woman get a perfect application every time!"

“Modernize the way you make up.”

"Looking great has never been so easy!"


priced at @ USD19.90

REVIEW >> Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup



disclaimer : this review is solely based on my personal opinion of this product and you might beg to differ.

OKIE DOKIE ! i am going to break this review into 2 parts :
  1. overall product specs
  2. personal opinion
Part 1 :
This product comes in 6 shades to match your skintone.
Lightweight and easy to apply.
Product should easily blend in to your original skin color and appears NATURAL as if you're not wearing anything at all.
Matte finish.
Claims to provide glow to skin although despite the matte finish.

Retailing @ RM140 - 30ml.
Interested, please look for Make-Up Artist @ Parkson Pavilion - Karen

Hehehehe here comes the interesting part : PERSONAL opinion :)

2nd disclaimer LOL! : this is a matter of preference ... you will either like or hate the product ...

The product is too MATTE for my liking. (I prefer a more luminous finish)
The finishing is too powdery and you can basically skip applying powder altogether.
Range of colours are too limited and you might find it hard to get the correct shade.
Comparing an apple to apple, I personally find Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation does a better job.
Light coverage, even out skintones and if you need extra coverage either layer the product or go for concealer (thats what concealer is for anyway hehe) .... word of advise, you hv to be extra careful on layering else you are gonna look like wearing a mask on :p

TIPS >>>>> FALL 09 LOOK by sephora.com


(left to right : Candy Colors, Bold Brows & Cat Eyes)

TIPS :
1. Candy Colors ~
  • lighter shade at the inside corner of the eyes as that will helps opening up the eyes
  • a dark color at the corner of the eyes to give a definition to the eyes
  • line the eyes & put loads of mascara (preferably with false lashes for a thicker lash)
2. Bold Brows
  • gives the skin a clean, nude matte finish
  • preferably light colors on the eyes
  • pink nude lip (light lip gloss) and put a little bit of shimmer on the bow of your lips to accentuate the pout :)
  • NOW, concentrate on the brow and make it darker coz this look is all about THE BROW
3.Cat Eyes
  • matte foundation all over the face
  • DARK lip color & line the lip as well ... choose Matte color as well
  • NOW, line the eyes .. here's the trick to have a perfect wing : line with pencil, smudge with a black eyeshadow and layer liquid liner on top. practice makes perfect hehehe good luck :p

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ... GRAB YOUR STUFFS AND START PLAYING WITH THE COLORS hehehehehehehe ...

Gel Liner


hey y'all .... just a simple trick for you to try @ home ..
Word of caution : be subtle else you will end up like crayon shin chan (pic above :p) hehehe

you can always pick up "a little bit" of your gel liner with an angular brush and gently stroke it on your brow ..

have fun and try it out ... remember though that it will look too overly done if you are applying too much hehehehe ...

p.s. you can also apply with the remaining product on the brush after you're done applying your eyeliner ..

Warehouse Sale - L'OREAL



16 - 17 Sep 2009
