Kanebo KATE Super Sharp Liner EX #BR-1 Dark Brown ケイト スーパーシャープライナーEX #BR-1 濃いブラウン

KATE Super Sharp Liner EX is a unique eyeliner.
It is made with two grips.
It is to manipulate shadow to precise lash line and adds depth.
I got a discount after purchasing SaSa product more than HKD400.
I think this is around HKD85 after the discount.
The only shade SaSa's cashier showed to me was Brown.
And I didn't even want to ask more because the cashier was very busy.

I really think Kuroki Meisa is suitable for a dark queen role.

Canmake Secret Beauty Powder #01 Clear Powder キャンメイク シークレットビューティーパウダー #01 クリアパウダー

This is a new powder from Canmake.
I thought it would be like Shiseido Maquillage,
where it can be used as a skincare powder at night.
But no, this powder just create a matte-finish skin after skincare,
without caring for the inside.
But since it is safe to put this after putting my night cream,
I don't have hesitation to try.

Kanebo KATE Brown Shade Eyes N #BR-5 Terra cotta ケイト ブラウンシェードアイズN #BR-5 テラコッタ

Brown Shade Eyes N is a modification palette of Brown Shade Eyes.
I previously owned BR-6 and BR-3.
I really love Brown Shade Eyes series and this is no exception.
I picked a different color variation from my previous palettes,
because they're the same.
The only differences is a topping bronzer color
and the fake shade powder is smaller.
I'm a bit disappointed at that, because I like KATE's contouring powder.
The color for contouring is beautiful
and fit my skin to create a cool expression.

Kanebo KATE 3D Contrasting Cheeks #RD-2

3D Contrasting Cheeks is a dual blush from KATE.
A powder shimmery type.
With two way brush, using a blusher will be fun.
Either pick one color, or mix them, or creating gradation.

ADDICTION by Ayako Cheek Polish #09 Sensually & #14 Winter Blush アディクションチークポリッシュ #9 センシュアリー & #14 ウィンター ブラッシュ

I was in love for ADDICTION Powder Blush #34 Winter Blush for years.
I don't know why, after purchasing all Innisfree Petal Blusher,
I want the real thing from ADDICTION, the Cheek Polish.
The one and only ADDICTION's store in Hong Kong
is only at The Landmark Mall in Central.
On the last day of my stay, I went there from Mong Kok
to Central in one hour,
just to buy this nail polish-like blusher!
The two colors I bought are #09 Sensually and #14 Winter Blush.
I guess Winter Blush is my favorite name from ADDICTION's item...

Kanebo KATE The Base Zero Set 2 : Secret Skin Maker Zero Liquid Foundation #01 with SPF18 / PA++ & Face Powder A #Natural Type ケイト シークレットスキンメイカー ゼロ リキッド 限定セット 2 01

I went to Hong Kong & Macao for a week in November 2017
and found this special set.
It contains the latest liquid foundation and mini loose powder from Kate.
Did you know that I was a bit disappointed at the Powderless Liquid?
Because it created dots after 3-4 hours, and I needed matching base for it.
Though it doesn't have any problem after that,
putting it after a base is a more work for me.
Now, let's see the performance for this new foundation.
Will it work good on my dry skin?

Liese Prettia Bubble Hair Color #British Ash

I thought of using Mise en Scene #6N to change
my hair color back to dark.
But it didn't work so I had to try another hair color.
Actually, I didn't want to use another hair color before a month.
But since I need to do an interview faster, I bought a hair color from Liese Prettia.
This is the color I've been eye-ing for months.
Until I found out the seller have ready stock,
I quickly bought this.
One of European series, the British Ash.
I don't know why I'm very tempted to have ash hair color.

British Ash is the middle color

Kao Sofina Primavista Moisture Coat Base with SPF15 / PA++ 花王 ソフィーナ プリマヴィスタ カサつき・粉ふき防止 化粧下地

Sofina Primavista is known for their base makeup,
while AUBE is popular in point / color makeup.
The Sofina Long Keep Base UV is very popular in Japan.
But since my skin is dry, the BA suggested Moisture Coat Base instead.
Main model is Ishihara Satomi, together with Kanno Miho.
I didn't know Kanno Miho before, so never mind.
And did you know Kao is supposed to be written as 花 "flower" and 王"king" / peony?
I once thought it was "face" since they often made cosme & skincare 😔

Fuyu, kirei ni sagatsuku, shitaji beauty means
This winter, a different base to make me beautiful.

Kao Sofina AUBE Couture Brush Hitonuri Shadow (Gradation Eyes) #561 Brown 花王 ソフィーナ オーブ クチュール ブラシひと塗りシャドウ #561 ブラウン

I was eye-ing Kao Sofina before I went to Hong Kong.
I often saw Ishihara Satomi advertisement for Sofina Primavista & AUBE couture.
AUBE is called as "ob", and I spelled it wrong at the counter as "aube".  😇
So I decided to pick and try a few of them.
AUBE is almost the same as Coffret D'or.
It produced mature ladies range and ladies in >50s.
Most of the products are similar, just color differences.
For >50s range, AUBE will add softer color suitable for them.
I didn't notice I bought too much until I got the Pon Pon Cheek as a bonus. 😅

Nature Republic By Flower Jeju Jam Balm #Tangerine Honey

I got this lip balm from my director
when she had a business trip to Korea.
This is only a small lip balm, but I'm very thankful.
Actually, this lip balm is not my 1st Nature Rep's product.
I once tried its Aloe Vera Gel, but
didn't find any long term effect on my dry skin.

Maybelline Master Flush Creator Blush #Next to Nude メイベリンマスターフラッシュ クリエイターブラッシュ ネクストトゥヌード

Back with another blush from Maybelline.
After getting into stick type, I bought the gradation blush from Maybelline.
I think a gradation blush is popular right now in Western.
And slow by time, Korean brand B. by Banila also introduced it recently.
But I was afraid it would be too bold.
So I chose Next to Nude shade in safety.

Maybelline Master Flush Stick Blush #Pink / #Peach Melon メイベリンマスターフラッシュ スティック #ピーチ メロン

Master Flush Stick is a made in China blush,
which is sold in Japan too.
I think this is more travel friendly than the old Master Glaze Blush.
It has sponge brush to apply in tap-tap motion.
Only pink color is sold in Indonesia.
While Japan has two colors, Cherry Grape and Peach Melon.
Indonesia's Master Flush is more to a peach.

Maybelline Face Studio Master Strobing Cream #Pink

Maybelline Indonesia released the Master Strobing Cream recently.

Etude House Precious Mineral BB (Beautifying Block) Cream Matte #21 Beige with SPF50+ / PA+++

I got a sample for Matte version.
Previously, I bought the Moist type and slightly satisfied.
It's just that all Etude's BB cream I've tried are all too sticky.
Since I got the Matte type as a sample, I got in no.21 again,
in Beige for yellow tone.

Etude House Dear Darling Tint Ice Cream #PK004 Red Bean Red, #PK005 Peach Red, #RD307 Watermelon Red

Rather than base makeup, I was indulge of lip product lately.
This is actually a summer 2017 limited item.
But I just bought recently in autumn, which is very late.
I bought 3 of them, half of the series color variation.

Mise En Scene Hello Bubble Hair Coloring #10G Vanilla Gold

I'm back with Mise En Scene!!!
After coloring my hair with #7N Mocha Latte Brown,
I decided to keep coloring my hair with this brand.
It makes my hair smooth and clean after coloring too.
But since I need a brighter hair color nowadays before my trip,
I ended up purchasing #10G Vanilla Gold.
I think this is the lightest color, except the bleaching.

Peripera Ink Airy Velvet #06 It Brown Orange & #10 Dry Rose Brown

Well well, I like Peripera's lip tint so much that I intended
to buy its every new series.
Not long after buying the Ink Airy Velvet no.2 & 5,
it already released a new shade for fall / winter 2017.
I bought shade no.6 & 10, bold and MLBB again.
And not long after the new Airy Ink Velvet color,
Peripera already released Cloud Ink Velvet series...
It says that the Cloud Ink Velvet has lighter finish than the Airy Velvet.

Laneige BB Cushion Whitening 2016 #13 Ivory with SPF50+ / PA+++

I'm still using my last refill of old Pore Control BB Cushion from Laneige.
This time, I feel I need to buy something hydrating,
since most of my remaining cushions are semi-matte finish.
The Whitening BB Cushion picked my interest for its dewy finish,
and light coverage.
I tend to prefer light coverage and dewy finish for Korean's base makeup.

Maybelline Color Sensational Diamond Eyeshadow #Rose Quartz Pink

This quint eyeshadow palette reminds me of Kanebo KATE's eyeshadow,
such as Colorcious Diamond or Deep Shiny Eyes.
The black packaging and elegant palette design are very similar to KATE.
So without doubt, I grabbed the Rose Quartz Pink shade.

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Peripera Peri's Ink the Velvet #12 Pure Peach

I previously owned Ink Airy Velvet #02 & #05.
I love the colors like a flower petal.
Just then, I had a thought of purchasing its velvet type in softer color.
And then I grabbed #12 Pure Peach just right at the last moment.
I hope it will match my skintone, as Pure Peach is a warm & light-colored lip tint.

Canmake Day & Night Treatment Lip Scrub キャンメイク デイ&ナイト トリートメントリップスクラブ

My lips is very dry, to the point of bleeding.
It often bleeds during holiday, when I don't apply lipstick / lipbalm.
I always have those since high school, and it is hurting a lot.
In order to take care more of my lips,
I decided to buy a lip scrub.
It will remove dead skin cells on my lips.
