Review, Video - DueBa Dreamy.i Gray

This is my most recent lens purchase from lensvillage.com.
They were on sale for just $13 per pair.
However, I am pretty much underwhelmed about the lenses and the company who sold them to me. : /

Here is my review on DueBa Dreamy.i lenses in Gray color.

NOTD - Zoya Dannii

Sorry, it is another purple polish.. ;)

Dannii is part of last spring Intimate collection (which is by the way, one of the best collections in years in my opinion) and described as "Medium orchid purple with pink and champagne highlights and flecks of silver metallic shimmer". (from zoya.com)

Review - mark Lemon Sugar

This is not a planned posting, but this scent is the choice for my shower tonight so I thought I would quickly share this with you. ;)

mark Lemon Sugar line is my absolute favorite out all of the mark products.
I have gone through many bottles and tubs of shower gel and body butter in this scent and I plan to stock up whenever they are on sale.

Swatch, Review - stila Backstage Eye Shadow Palette

I bought this only recently although it seems this palette was introduced last holiday season.
I love everything about this simple (well, compared to all those bling-y holiday collections of this year anyway) palette, and I am glad I still got this a year later after it came out. 
Better late than never, right? ;)

This palette contains six eyeshadows.

Review - e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder

When I first heard about this loose powder, I had a feeling this would be similar to my holy grail Chacott finishing powder in translucent.
I am happily reporting to you that e.l.f Studio HD powder comes very very close at much lower cost! :D

Review - John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo, Conditioner & Perfect Ends Sheer Mist



I am a big fan of John Frieda hair care line, and actually their Brilliant Brunette line is my staple. (They smell scrumptious and make my hair so soft! However, today it is not about them. ;p)
I got these shampoo, conditioner and hair mist about 3 months ago when I colored my hair pitch black. My hair is quite full and healthy but it did feel drier and stiff after coloring it.

Fragrance - Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Charms


This was introduced in 2005, so it is quite an oldie. :)
I am wearing this pretty and feminine scent very often lately and I wanted to share this with you.
There are many Incanto flankers (bliss, dream, heaven, bloom..etc) and I am sure we will see at least a couple more in the future, but I don't really mind them.

NOTD - Sinful Winterberry

This is another purple/gray polish that looks sophisticated and rich, which is perfect for the season.

I put Revlon Perplex on my ring finger for comparison.
The major difference would be the finish where Winterberry shimmers more visibly with silver specs.
I still prefer Perplex since it looks more complex and elegant to me, but I totally get the name of the color (doesn't it remind you of frosted blueberries?) and adore the pretty silver shimmers. :)

Application was pretty nice with no problem. ;)
For your reference, Duri Grape and Zoya Nimue are supposed to be close to Sinful Winterberry.

Swatch, Review - Zoya Hot Lips Glossy Lip Balm


Zoya has this cute line of Lip Gloss / Lip Balm called "Hot Lips".
A lot of people seem to like them, so obviously I got curious and bought me a couple of tubes.
Here is my review and swatches on Zoya Hot Lips in Minx and Boudoir. :)

Review, Swatch - Butter London No More Waity, Katie




I read more than a couple reviews saying this shade is a "let-down" even before my purchase, but I still had get it. :)
This glittered but muted grey/lilac color looked very unique to me, not that I follow any of the Royal Affairs.
It is for sure the name and the time when it was released contributed a lot to the huge success of this color, though.

Review, FOTD - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Temptress

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Temptress is a medium pink with a bit of sheen.
(Revlon categorizes this as creme finish, but it is hard to see it that way. Some even say this goes on frosty.)

The coverage is sheer to medium, the color shows up nicely when I apply it the way I usually do (over matte lip balm - apply once - blot - apply again).
I find this quite moisturizing and comfortable on my lips and it looks most flattering when paired with neutral brown eyeshadows.


I haven't worn this shade much up until now, although I went totally gaga over the whole collection when it was relaunched last year.
There is definitely a glamorous retro quality and rich feel to this pink color, which is probably why I did not succeed pulling it off during the last spring and summer. :)

Swatch, Short Review - tarte Lip Service Limited-Edition LipSurgence Collection

So I jumped on the bandwagon and got this set! ;D
This is an amazing deal ($29 for the set!) when you consider a single Lipsurgence costs $24.
Then, I know I would never pay full price for them. I personally think it is too expensive no matter how great they are!
Tarte claims this product will boost the moisture level by 6000%.
I mean, really? 6000%??! -_-+
I am a little annoyed here, but all is forgiven after they offered this super deal. ^-^



(from left to right, descriptions from sephora.com)
glitzy - antique pink luster
perky - soft carnation pink tint
flashy - bright iridescent fuchsia luster
swank - light cherry tint
dazzled - pearly coral pink luster
