GRAFTOBAIN HI-DEF GLAMOUR CREAM

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve recently purchased the Graftobain Hi-Def Glamour Cream foundations and Color correctors after hearing so many positive things about ’em and reading so many positive reviews and also have been recommended to buy them by Sarah Chaudry of www.facesbysarah.com– she’s a professional makeup artitst based in Singapore and she’s such a down to earth nature person…total sweetheart. She’s also got many youtube tutorials, you can check that out.

Back to the Graftobain Hi-Def Glamour Cream paletts, well they are nice and super creamy, easy to match anyones skin tone giving the wide range of colors that they have.  They have 2 different types of paletts, these are the smaller ones which contains 5 differnt color shades in each one and there are bigger ones as well. Which contains the entire range of Cool, Warm or Neutral colors per palette. 

I just bought the smaller ones with 5 tones each, to check out how it works for me. 

I feel that the coverage is rather sheer, one must use concealer to cover better.  Or, it’s good for people who doesn’t want much coverage or have fairly good skin naturally. 

They look very natural and beautiful though. I wish the coverage was better.

and for the color corrector…i simply loved it

Revlon Double Twist Mascara

Revlon Double Twist Mascara

I am always so picky with mascaras (wonder if everyone else is).  I always prefer using 2 different mascaras to get that right effect on my lashes.

This Revlon Double Twist Mascara, I just bought coz it was fairly cheap (compare to all the other mascaras I’ve bought in the past).

I was really surprised by it’s quality and how easily it goes on the lashes.  It give full, thick and long lashes by using just this mascara (even without using a base).  The only downfall is that it gets finished pretty fast. But, for the price that that I’ve paid for it, it’s still worth buying it.  I have been using it so much that this is my 3 rd purchase now.

It only cost HKD54.00 (aprox. USD7.00) from Sasa, Bonjour, Mannings/Waterson’s etc.  The full price is HKD108.00, but you’ll mostly find it on 50% sale.

Prosays – Lip Blush and Gloss Sticks

Prosays – Lip Blush and Gloss Sticks

Prosays is Developed and Inspired from Japan, Switzerland, Italy and France.

Names : Breezy, Mild, Intoxicating, Glitter Mist, Glitter Snow

I have bought 3 of their lip blushes and 2 of their gloss sticks, which I still find not enough. They are great consistency and long lasting. They hydrate the lips very well and do not wear off for long time. I definately like the the lip blushes more then the gloss sticks. As, the lip blushes are very natural looking whereas the gloss sticks are quite shiny. The color intensity is just perfect and more like moisturizing lipsticks. It shows the color of each lip blush/gloss stick differently and perfectly.

The love their packaging, its clear acrylic just feels like you carrying glass little bottle. Just beautiful 😀

These are “MADE IN ITALY”.

I can’t tell you how much I got these for…as, I bought them during a wedding fair in Hong Kong.  But, they are definately worth a try.

Check out the color swatches for a better idea.

St.Ives Apricot Scrub – Invigorating

St.Ives Apricot Scrub

This is one of the must have item on my bathroom shelf. 

I have been using this product for over 10 years now, and have been hooked on it ever since.  I have been recommending it to nearly everyone I know or anyone who would ask me on what to use to make their skin look more radiant and clear.

It clears blackheads, whiteheads, minimizes pores, nourishes and smoothes skin, helps fight acne – the list is just endless!!

You may find the scrub a bit coarse at first, especially if you are used to other more gentle ones, but used the the right way it works wonders even on most sensitive skin.

I use it on my face and body.  I cant live without it.

This is available to buy from any Mannings or Watson’s in Hong Kong
