REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundation

Hello everyone!

In case you haven’t heard, Urban Decay recently expanded their Naked Skin line and dropped a cushion compact in Singapore. I know what you’re thinking. Urban Decay may be (very) late to the cushion compact trend but hey, at least they are making an effort to meet the needs of their Asian consumers!

According to their website, the Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundations come in 6 shades of their revolutionary formula which provides weightless, buildable coverage with a luminous finish. It keeps the skin hydrated for up to 18 hours and protects with SPF 50+ and PA+++.

At present, this product is only available in Singapore (Whoop! We have been noticed once again! 🙌) and is sold in two parts – case and refill.

Sold separately from the case, each refill includes an applicator puff which is entirely in royal purple to align with the corporate colour scheme of Urban Decay. The ribbon is made of thick and sturdy material which gives the impression that it won’t be easily disengaged from the puff.

For the uninitiated, most cushion compact puffs on the Korean beauty market are anti-bacterial and anti-microbial which lower the risk of transferring bacteria from the face to the compact. These Urban Decay applicator puffs, however, are not antibacterial so it is recommended to be washed at least once a week like your beauty blender.

Within the receptacle lies the foundation-soaked sponge overlaid with a foam-like mesh which, upon further scrutiny, resembles multiple layers of cheesecloth piled onto one another. It has a comparable surface area to that of my Laneige BB cushion, perhaps slightly bigger. As opposed to using just hole sponges (which is very common in Korean cushion compacts), the added netting allows for better measure of control. The downside of it, however, is that it restricts you from flipping the cushion to extend the usage. Do also note that there isn’t any protective seal affixed to the netting (another common feature in Korean cushion compacts) but that should be least of your concerns since the refills all come packed in plastic pouches.

If you’re always on the hunt for better deals on Carousell or eBay, here’s a tip: you will be able to tell at a glance if the Urban Decay Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact has been used before since the clear mesh instantly gets stained with the product once pressure is applied upon it. Determining “newness” would be near-impossible for cushion compacts that utilise only hole sponge as they are usually of the same colour as the product 😉

Ingredients-wise, the Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundation contains skin-nourishing ingredients such as rose centifolia flower extract, which has toning and firming properties, as well as Gentian root extract for its skin-soothing and antioxidant benefits. There is also peppermint extract to help condition the skin.

Most importantly, the product is made in Japan, where quality is never compromised.

Technically speaking, the case may not seem like an absolute necessity if you’re one of those who constantly look for ways to cut back on makeup spending. But for hygiene’s sake, it is always advisable to house the product in an airtight case to reduce the chances of turning it into a breeding ground for microbes. Further, it also prevents your formula from drying out and helps to keep your applicator puff in place.

After all, unless you damage the case (which is quite unlikely given the quality of it), it should be a one-off purchase so you won’t need to replace the entire thing when your product runs out, even if you have gotten a shade tanner or fairer.

III. Application

To use the cushion compact, slip your index, middle and ring fingers under the ribbon of the applicator puff (not demonstrated in the picture above) before gently pressing one small part of it down into the cushion to pick up the foundation. Swipe the puff across the skin to spread the product and dab to blend. For hard-to-reach areas like inner eye corners and around the nose, fold the puff in half (or simply use the corners) and carefully dab the foundation on. Thereafter, apply concealer and loose powder (for a more matte finish).

Notice how the excess gets sucked back in?

Be warned, though, that the netting will sink in over time so do refrain from applying too much unnecessary pressure to it

As always, testers are available at Sephora (and Urban Decay) for consumers to match the right tone before purchasing. I contemplated between shades 2.75 and 3.25 – neither of which was a perfect match to my skin tone (I swatched all of the shades onto my jawline and realised that 3.5 was too dark even though it looked like it disappeared into my wrist in the swatch earlier) – but finally decided on the lighter one considering that the finished look would turn out darker after all the contouring.

Hydrating and lightweight, the Urban Decay Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundation has an airier and a less creamy texture than the typical liquid foundation (and less watery than the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup) which prevents it from creasing on the delicate skin around the eyes. Comparable to tinted moisturisers, it is buildable to a certain point from a sheer to medium coverage to give a very natural application and a dewy veil. It took an average of two swipes at each area to achieve the “after” fresh and supple look above.

While it does not conceal major blemishes entirely, it is able to neutralise and cover most of the redness and large pores on my skin for a more even and – dare I say – flawless finish. Unlike many Korean cushion foundations I’ve tried (in particular by Etude House and Laneige), this doesn’t leave a cakey or tacky (especially tacky) texture and I could actually skip the setting powder altogether (but I did not due to my oily skin type). On top of that, it is fragrance-free (no harsh chemical smell emitting from the product either) which makes it suitable for sensitive skin.

NO FILTER AGAIN: Finished look - applied concealer, blush, bronzer, lipstick and some eye makeup. I don't look as pale as before, eh?

Six hours later, I didn’t really notice much of a change in the appearance apart from the fact that my skin looked undoubtedly oilier (which can temporarily be rid of with the Palladio Rice Paper I carry along with me wherever I go but for the purpose of this review, I did not blot my skin throughout the day ☺). Upon closer look, however, the foundation did seem to have disintegrated a bit and some of my pores looked clogged and this would have been amplified if I had not stayed indoors (air-conditioned) most of the time (it was too hot and humid out there). That said, no foundation has remained spotless on my skin for more than an hour so far 😢 #oilyskinwoes

All in all, the application and quality certainly did not disappoint. Moreover, it is convenient and travel-friendly as you don’t have to make space in your luggage for your foundation, moisturiser and whatnot. This does most, if not all, of the job!

But.. is it a worthy buy? Here’s the thing, cushion compacts use up extremely quickly and this will be no exception. No doubt, this a great product. But paying S$59 for something that can probably last for only 4 months, tops, is a bit of a stretch. The same amount of money can fetch you a fairly decent bottle of liquid foundation that can take up to a year to empty, or two cushion compacts from a Korean beauty brand. With the abundant supply of cushion compacts in the Korean beauty market (practically every Korean brand carries their own cushion compact line), you are bound to find something similar to this (and likely with more benefits) at a more economical price.

Having said that, since this is an Urban Decay product we’re talking about, setting a low price-point for it would be out of the question. Perhaps, they can do more to set themselves apart from the Korean brands and offer what they don’t, which is to cater to deeper skin tones and expand their shade range, to make this line seem more worthy of the price tag. Contrary to public perceptions, a sizeable portion of the population in Singapore is dark-skinned so I can’t fathom why this wasn’t done at the get-go 🤔

REVIEW: Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette

Hey everyone!

The Vice sequel that everyone has been eagerly waiting for has finally hit stores today! As an avid collector of Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, I was so thrilled that I had actually placed my order on Sephora.com even before it was launched in Singapore. But due to having too much on my plate recently (woes of being a final-year undergrad), I wasn’t able to post a review until now.

Unless you’ve already made up your mind about getting it, you may want to read on to find out more about the palette before you put your money on it!

Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Vice 4 Eyeshadow Palette

Loaded with 20 never-seen-before eyeshadow shades, Vice 4 delivers darkly gorgeous colours inspired by the hues of an oil slick into a palette filled with rich, deep jewel tones. It comes with an extra slim case that doubles as a cosmetics pouch like Vice 3 and similar to all its predecessor, a large mirror that fits nicely against the lid as well as a double-ended Shadow and Crease brush are included along with this palette.

The design of the palette gets better with each upgrade (although I’d very much prefer the lid to open on its own with just a push of a button à la Vice 1 and 2). Described as a dimensional web of broken-down facets layered over a matte black lid, the palette is an art on its own as it reflects the bold and edgy personality of the brand. The pop-up purple-ombré jagged lines that fronted the palette is made of rather flimsy plastic so be careful not to place anything heavy on it, or risk damaging the delicate overlay.

Shades included in Vice 4 are:

Bones (oyster satin w/pearl), Grip (taupe matte w/iridescent micro-glitter), Deadbeat (black satin w/iridescent micro-glitter), Beat Down (deep metallic violet w/blue micro-glitter), Pandemonium (metallic plum w/iridescent micro-glitter), Framed (light neutral matte-satin), Fast-Ball (metallic peachy pink w/pink micro-glitter), 1985 (metallic fuchsia w/fuchsia micro-glitter), Underhand (burgundy-brown satin), Harlot (metallic lavender), Discreet (soft dusty mauve matte), Grasshopper (metallic emerald w/green micro-glitter), C-Note (frosted green w/micro-glitter), Arctic (bright teal w/tonal sparkle), Robbery (deep metallic brown-gunmetal), Bitter (reddish brown matte), Flame (bright orange w/gold micro-glitter), Low (brown matte w/iridescent micro-glitter), Crowbar (black w/golden metallic pearl and micro-glitter) and Delete (deep chestnut brown matte-satin).

Every shade here features the Pigment Infusion System™, which according to Urban Decay, is a proprietary blend of ingredients for rich, velvety, blendable color that lasts and guarantees little to minimal sparkle fallout. Indeed, they blend like a dream but I wouldn’t say the same for the sparkles. Low and Crowbar, for instance, have the tendency to fall out during application and it can be a real pain removing them without destroying the rest of my makeup! So if I had to use these two shades, I’d definitely do my eye makeup before everything else.

As with other Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, Vice 4 has a vast majority of shimmery shades. In fact, only 4 of them (Framed, Discreet, Bitter & Delete) are full-matte with no glitter nonsense. With the exception of Framed which failed to show up well against my arm (and hence making it a great choice for the base colour), all of them have pretty decent colour payoff with a buttery yet slightly airy consistency. But as much as I favour mattes over shimmers, the latter have definitely performed better this time around in terms of application for they had mostly silky texture and fantastic pigmentation.

This is probably the most amateur-friendly Vice palette because clearly, there are more neutral than bold colours to work with here. Blue hues are evidently lacking in this latest Vice as more pans were given up for the greens.

REVIEW: Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

Hello everyone!

urban-decay-naked-smoky-17

As a beauty junkie, I experiment with my looks from time to time using several makeup brands and it’s through these experiences that I discovered the cosmetics lines that would be the mainstay in my beauty regime. For instance, I rely on MAC lipsticks to give my lips colour but when it comes to eye makeup, I switch to none other than Urban Decay to give my peepers some depth (though Tarte and Too Faced are creeping up my list, that’s a different story for another post 😀 *hint*).

I remember owning my first eyeshadow palette 3 years ago when I started out on (proper) makeup.  It wasn’t a full colour palette because I didn’t know how to work with bold shades. I wanted colours that were more neutral and easier to blend with (as I think I suck pretty much at colour combination). Therefore, I eventually decided on Naked 2 which was the latest palette from UD then.

Fast forward to 2015, I have more than 10 eyeshadow palettes from various brands in my possession. But those of UD are still my ultimate holy grail because of their great pigmentation and good mix of matte and shimmery shades. Plus, UD is known to be cruelty-free and vegan, including their complimentary brushes that come with their full palettes! So what’s not to love about UD? 🙂

Of course, the highlight of this post isn’t my vast collection of eyeshadows, but the latest Naked eyeshadow palette rolled out by UD this summer! Nope, it isn’t Naked 4 (it’s ok, that’s what I thought too). It’s the Smoky palette!

Smoky? *scratches head* Doesn’t UD already have it long ago?

No, dearies, it’s not the Smoked palette. I know, I know. It is a little confusing but trust me, you will catch on because these two products are worlds apart! I will go into that later. But first..

This purchase made me so happy because of all the freebies! But I could have gotten a bag of many mini branded fragrances instead if not for the fact that alcohol-based products are prohibited for air shipment -_- Dammit, why don’t the Sephora outlets in Singapore shower their customers with as many samples as their US counterpart? 😕 *greedy*

The Naked Smoky palette consists of High (champagne shimmer with micro-glitter), Dirtysweet (medium bronze), Radar (metallic taupe with iridescent micro-glitter), Armor (metallic silver-taupe with tonal sparkle), Slanted (light metallic gray), Dagger (medium charcoal with micro-shimmer), Black Market (jet-black satin), Smolder (deep plum-taupe), Password (cool taupe matte), Whiskey (rich brown matte), Combust (soft pink-taupe) and Thirteen (light beige satin).

All my Naked palettes prior to this purchase have been extremely satisfactory but for the Smoky palette? Not quite. The colour payoff for the mattes (e.g. Smolder and Password) are mostly weak and sheer although they are generally darker than those in Naked 1, 2 and 3. I had to apply at least 3 layers to make the colours show. But having said that, you may enjoy this palette if you have issues working with eyeshadows that appear too pigmented.

The shimmery ones, on the other hand, have impressive consistency and the glitters are very micro and evenly distributed. The metallic finish for Bittersweet and Armor are too frosty for my liking but the rest are rather muted. Never thought I would say this but I really prefer the shimmery to the matte ones for this palette!

One thing about the eyeshadows that stood out was the fallout. I mean, the very minimal fallout, perhaps because of the thinner texture of the eyeshadows. I usually have my eyes done so that I can cover the fallout with my foundation thereafter but nope, nothing much to conceal! I guess UD finally hit the nail on the head this time!

Palette comparison with Smoked palette

Palette comparison with Smoked palette

Swatch comparison with Smoked

Swatch comparison against Smoked with just 1-2 swipes

The Smoked shades are a lot more pigmented and heavy (even the lightest matte ones!) as you can see.

Moving on to the complimentary dual-ended eyeshadow brush, the bristles are similar to what you have in the first 3 Naked palettes – smooth to the touch of a finger but slightly prickly on the lids because they are too sturdy. I don’t really use the provided brush anyway so I’m not bothered by it.

On the whole, this palette is a good investment if you’re looking for a set of not-too-heavy shades to do your smoked eyes. The colours are relatively easy to work with (except that the mattes could be a bit more pigmented) and I’m always very tempted to blend all of them on my lids (HAHA, Singaporean kiasu mentality, I guess. Anyone else does the same??). It’s definitely way better than the Smoked palette which I felt were too dense to the extent that it gave me panda eyes on many occasions and I ended up having wipe some off (and ruining my makeup in the process).

Is there ever going to be an end to this Naked series? I mean, since we already have bronze-hued, taupe-hued, rose-gold and now smoky-toned palettes, I wonder what’s going to come next! What do you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! 🙂

REVIEW: Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks – 1993, Tilt, After Dark & Blackmail

Hey everyone!

Urban Decay has recently stepped up its game with a whole new range of lipsticks – the Matte Revolution – in addition to its two existing lines, Sheer Revolution and the original Revolution (satin finish) which I absolutely adore.  With almost a full collection of the latter in my stash, you can say that I’m a die-hard fan of its opaque lipsticks. Therefore when I got wind of the exciting news of its latest lineup, the matte lipstick fanatic in me squealed in delight! I simply couldn’t wait to lay my hands on these new exquisite offerings from one of my all-time favourite cosmetics brands!

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick

Released early last month on urbandecay.com, this tantalising collection boasts a total of 11 new shades (with 2 being online-exclusive) namely Backtalk (OE), Carnal (OE), Blackmail, Bad Blood, Tilt, Temper, After Dark, Menace, Bittersweet, 1993 and Stark Naked made with a super-creamy and nondrying formula (Pigment Infusion System™) and encased in a sleek, dark-grayish metallic packaging.

(Hmmm, why do I have the impression that these names are Taylor Swift-inspired?)

Backtalk and Carnal weren’t available at time of my purchase so I settled for my next top 4 consisting of a nude, a red, a plum and a noir.

Also, these lipsticks are loaded with a long list of nourishing ingredients, including a blend of avocado, olive and babassu oils. Shea butter conditions; illipe butter (derived from Malaysian illipe trees) provides long-lasting moisture; and vitamin C and vitamin E provide a hit of antioxidants. [source]

Whoa, a lip conditioner and lipstick in one! Sounds like it will do wonders for my poor chapped lips which intensify under most matte formula. But do they live up to expectations?

One of the more sought-after shades, this “dirty brown” was practically sold out in a matter of days and I had to wait for it to be restocked before I could cart out my order so I reckon it’s going to be a hit among Singapore buyers as well. Application was easy and smooth as butter and it has very rich pigmentation with a little sheen. Colour is slightly darker than pictured which works great on both fair and dark skin tones.

This cheery coral-orange looks bright but is surprisingly flattering on warm skin tones like mine. Bold and vivid colours have the tendency to accentuate and settle into my lip lines but Tilt doesn’t at all. It seemed to cover my lips well although it is less pigmented than 1993. The Matte finish is also more apparent here as it’s not as glossy as the rest.

Similarly, After Dark provides even coverage in a single swipe with its superb pigmentation. It has a bit of a frost finish with tiny reflecting particles (perhaps of a lighter shade), giving a subtle ombre effect from bottom-up and leaving your lips with a lustrous shine. This shade is very similar to the existing fuchsias by Urban Decay, albeit marginally darker.

My most anticipated shade but also the worst-performing one, Blackmail doesn’t fare well in terms of coverage and opacity – a common problem among really dark shades, I guess. Hated how it still looked visibly patchy and uneven on the lips even after trying to cover it up. Still, I don’t deny that it’s a gorgeous blackened berry and it’s perhaps my darkest lipstick shade in my collection after Hautecore.

Blackmail and After Dark swatch comparison with similar Revolution shades

Blackmail and After Dark swatch comparison with similar Revolution shades

Shame, the darkest shade from the Revolution range, doesn’t seem that dark anymore next to Blackmail with its brighter and redder hue and After Dark is just a more sombre and less iridescent version of Venom and Anarchy.

But evidently, Urban Decay had retained most of the satin finish in their Matte range to make it less drying on the lips. I believe this has got to do with the nourishing formula Urban Decay had infused into the lipsticks too.

All in all, I’m very satisfied with the smooth finish of the lipsticks. Pigmentation is fantastic in general and they are all extremely opaque without having to apply layers upon layers of the product. Feather-resistant, hydrating and long-lasting, they are pretty much like the Revolution lipsticks, just a teeny-weeny bit less glossy. My only complaint is the flat surface of the lipstick bullet which makes it a little challenging for me to line my cupid’s bow. But of course, that can be easily solved using a lip brush.

However, purchasing from urbandecay.com can be a pain as it only allows international buyers to ship their orders via MyUS.com which charges really exorbitant shipping fees (in fact, more than twice the rate my designated forwarder offers), not forgetting the ridiculous US$10 registration fee upon sign up. For this reason, I wouldn’t recommend buying anything at all from urbandecay.com. The better alternative would be Sephora.com (using your forwarder’s BuyForMe service) if you can afford to wait for a few more days.

Now that Urban Decay has added the online-exclusive shades  to its website, I feel really tempted to get them. But at the same time I’m deterred by the preposterous shipping charges. Argh, the dilemma. Should I decide to get them in the end, I’ll include the review into this post so do follow my Facebook or Instagram for updates!

TAG: The Beauty Blogger

Hey guys! Hope your day is going well 🙂

I was tagged by some bloggers (didn’t keep track of the names but thank you, whoever you are!) to do a variation of tags a few months ago. Tags are a series of questionnaires about your personal life and you’re supposed to repost the questions on your social media account with your answers if you’re tagged to do it. It’s like responding to survey quizzes with Facebook Notes which apparently was the craze a few years back. Now, it’s back to haunt me on WordPress. Hahaha, kidding.

Well, throughout my 5 years on WordPress, I have been documenting my life in the form of product and service reviews. Very seldom would you see me writing extensively about myself here because I’m usually quite uncomfortable with the idea of baring my soul to the world and documenting my every move online (the internet is such a scary place).

But I actually thought that tags would be a fantastic way to unveil bits and pieces of my life without sounding too.. self-obsessed? And it’s about time I take a break from reviews and inject some personal touches to this space of mine. 😉

For this post, I have picked a beauty tag which I’m always very excited to talk about (and ‘coz beauty inevitably forms part of the backbone of this blog). So here goes!

Lipsticks are my obsession

Naturally straight. It used to be very straight before I chopped off my hair when I was 15 and people would think that I rebonded it when I didn’t 🙂 Now it’s more wavy than straight because I bun up my hair a lot.

SAMSUNG CSC

Shampoo and conditioner I use!

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?

I get it done at a salon because I can’t dye for nuts.. and my hands won’t be able to reach some parts of my hair.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?

I’m all about convenience when it comes to dressing up and it has always been the case since I started buying my own clothes. Is that considered as a style? But I love anything pink, floral and girly.

SAMSUNG CSC

Floral dresses, my ultimate luv

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

I… don’t do any mani or pedi.

*gasps*

Yes. I think it’s a complete waste of money and they won’t last more than a day on me anyway!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?

As above, no nail polish unless I’m in a destructive mood to scratch off paint from my nails.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?

Never!

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?

It depends on how much time I have for makeup. Typically 10-15 minutes during morning rush hour (lighter makeup and sans highlighter and mascara) and 20-30 minutes on days I can afford to waste 😉

SAMSUNG CSC

What I use on a daily basis!

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Used to be my face until I realised that it’s way faster to do my eyes first! Plus, the foundation that comes after helps to cover up all the annoying fallout!

SAMSUNG CSC

Collectibles 🙂

SAMSUNG CSC

Highlighters

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

I unabashedly admit that I collect makeup so I have tons of unused products at home. Eye palettes and lipsticks are just too irresistible.

SAMSUNG CSC

My almost-complete collection of Urban Decay Revolution lipstick

Some of my unused collection

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?

I don’t wear them because eyelashes make a huge difference to one’s look (and I dislike the feeling of them weighing down my lids). I like my makeup to stay as natural as possible and I don’t wish to appear unrecognisable without my lashes 😉

SAMSUNG CSC

I rely on mascaras to enhance the look of my natural lashes. I alternate between Benefit and Urban Decay, sometimes using both (waterproof on upper lashes and non-waterproof on lower to prevent clumping). Also not forgetting my trusty Shiseido eyelash curler. I also own a Shu Uemura curler which works as great!

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?

Yes, as long as I have the time for it. And especially if I am experiencing breakouts.

SAMSUNG CSC

Full makeup

12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?

Nope, I’m perfectly fine with my family and boyfriend seeing my no-makeup face. I’m not that self-conscious!

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes, definitely. I’ve done that a couple of times on days when my skin looks flawless HAHA. And also I don’t mind leaving the house without makeup if I’m commuting by car. But it’s a huge no-no if I’m heading to farther places from home like town by public transport.

SAMSUNG CSC

Face products I use to pamper my skin!

14. How many high-end products do you have?

I’m not a high maintenance person so I don’t seek brands like Gucci, Prada or LV. I think my most expensive accessories to date are my Coach wristlets (gifted to me by my cousin and boyfriend), Kate Spade bag and wallet (bought by my boyfriend when he was in US a few years back). My other high-end products are perhaps my more expensive cosmetics from Chanel, Dior and Guerlain.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?

I have to plan my OOTD the night before. Otherwise, I would be late for whatever I’m rushing off to.

16. How often do you change your handbag?

Rarely. I own tons of handbags but there’s only a handful (no pun intended) that I use regularly because of the size. I need a medium to large handbag to store my barang-barang hahaha.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

I’m nocturnal and I know it’s bad for health 😦 I typically sleep after 4am (latest was 7am) and wake up before 11am. That’s less than 5 hours of sleep each day and I’ve grown accustomed to this sleeping pattern. But what to do, I’m just so busy! 24 hours a day is not enough for me.

18. How often or when do you workout?

I try to do short exercises (sit ups, crunches, stretches, planking) every night before I sleep. I run at least 3 times a week if my schedule allows.

19. Left handed or right handed?

Right handed.

20. How tall are you?

165cm the last time I measured. I hope I’ve grown taller after all the stretching exercises 😀

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?

Is Cantonese foreign? I have studied basic French, Spanish and Malay but I doubt I can carry a conversation in those languages. I can understand a little though.

22. How many pets do you have?

One, for now. Planning on getting another dog soon (if the co-owner agrees to be more responsible)

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

My lovely Chubs the Pomeranian 🙂

23. How often are you on WordPress?

Daily. WordPress is one of my pinned tabs and it’s also my homepage on my mobile Chrome.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?

I don’t really bloghop (too busy for that these days) but I do head straight to the comments after reading a post/news article because I enjoy reading alternative views 🙂

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see on other posts?

Not really, I pick up whatever that catches my attention when I go shopping.

Great Singapore Sale is happening right now at ZALORA! Head on to ZALORA now for the best deals and offers 🙂

26. How did you come up with your blog name?

It’s my name, duh! I wanted a name that truly represents me and eventually concluded that it should be my name. So unoriginal but yeah. Hahaha.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

NX-2000 for product shoots and NX-mini for outdoors.

28. How often do you clean your house?

I sweep the floor everyday because my dog sheds a lot! I clean and scrub my bathroom perhaps once every two months.

29. What’s your favorite color?

Pink, definitely!

30. Do you swear?

Nope, because I feel that uttering vulgarities depreciates my self-worth. I’m not as liberal as the youth these days. I just can’t bring myself to swear. But admittedly I do swear when I’m extremely pissed off. Hahaha.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?

I’m just going to have cupcakes from Five One Degrees and torture myself with a bowl of spicy Korean instant noodles for dinner. 😀

… and that’s all I have for this tag!

I’m supposed to tag a few people to do this questionnaire but I really have nobody in mind. So I’m tagging all of you to do this! Let me know in the comments below if you’ve done it and I’ll hop over to your blog and take a look at your response! Whee, it’s gonna be so much fun!

Thanks for reading lovelies! 🙂

FAVOURITES: 13 Red Lipsticks

Hello ladies!

Sorry for the lack of updates! I am into my second week of internship and my schedule has been pretty packed with work, events and other activities, leaving me with no time for leisure. Only managed to squeeze in time to blog today since my Mom made me dinner at home.

SAMSUNG CSC

It has been 4 months since my last FAVOURITES entry and I’m pleasantly surprised that the series has reached out to so many lipstick fanatics like myself! *waves* Thanks for the support, guys! And yes, I know I promised a continuation somewhere in my MLBB post. Well, this is it! It took a long while to be up because of my decreased presence at home, which had only allowed me to do shorter reviews like new M.A.C launches. To make up for the wait, I’ll be featuring 13 of my favourite red (any shade of red) lipsticks instead of the usual 10! Yay to more lip goodness! 🙂

Love dark lipsticks? Check out what top my list here! Or here if you’re into nude lipsticks 🙂

(Actually I just couldn’t choose lol)

If you’re still searching for a perfect red lipstick, look no further! For all you know, you could just find one right here 🙂 Even if you’re not a huge red lipstick person (like me), I feel that you should invest in at least one for special occasions like proms, weddings and your company’s Dinner & Dance!

SAMSUNG CSC

Overview. Do you own any of these?

If you’re surprised to see so many M.A.C lipsticks topping my list, you must be new here. I’m an absolute devotee of M.A.C so naturally more than 70% of my lipstick stash are from the said brand.

I’m gonna kick off the list with some recently-launched and reviewed-before M.A.C lipsticks just to create suspense.

SAMSUNG CSC

The first 3 (from left): MAC in Strange Journey, Oblivion and Stunner.

1. M.A.C in STRANGE JOURNEY

SAMSUNG CSC

Strange Journey is a yellowish brick red with Matte finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

The Halloween collection in 2014 did offer some of the best reds I’ve ever seen from MAC and one of them was Strange Journey. It wasn’t the most popular choice from that collection (sold out nonetheless) because according to some people, it’s too orangey? But look, it doesn’t appear like that on my lips right? 😀

SAMSUNG CSC

C’mon, it’s really not that orangey!

Read more about it here.

2. M.A.C in OBLIVION

SAMSUNG CSC

Oblivion is a vivid blushred with Amplified finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

As you can tell from my lips, Oblivion is slightly hydrating and opaque, a bit like lip tint. It’s my favourite red lippy at the moment.

SAMSUNG CSC

In fact, all the lipsticks from The Rocky Horror Picture Show collection are drop-dead gorgeous!

Read more about it here.

3. M.A.C in STUNNER

SAMSUNG CSC

Stunner is a clean red with Matte finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

One-third of the MAC x Nasty Girl collection and the least popular of the lot, it is no doubt a very dupe-able shade. MAC has a couple of colours similar to this. Hence, it took quite a long while to sell out (when the other two shades were already gone by the end of the launch week). But still, it’s still a very pretty shade of red, isn’t it? 🙂

SAMSUNG CSC

I find it to be very flattering on my skin tone!

Read more about it here.

SAMSUNG CSC

The next 4 (from left): MAC in Ruby Woo, Lady Danger, Russian Red and M.A.C Red.

4. M.A.C in RUBY WOO

SAMSUNG CSC

Ruby Woo is a very matte vivid blue-red with a Retro Matte finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Like the other Retro Matte lipsticks I own, Ruby Woo tends to be a bit more drying, so multiple applications are needed to completely fill the lips. And while you’re at it, you’d feel like you’re colouring your lips with a red crayon (the dryness and inconsistency). It takes a little more effort to be removed.

SAMSUNG CSC

But it’s very long-lasting and it gives the perfect matte texture! This explains why it’s one of MAC’s best sellers.

5. M.A.C in LADY DANGER

SAMSUNG CSC

Lady Danger is a vivid bright coral-red with Matte finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Highly raved and recommended by lipstick users and on beauty magazines around the world, Lady Danger has proven to be one of the best orange-red lipsticks in the market. Perfect for fall, it can be a little drying though (I think this is a common problem for the older MAC Matte lipsticks) but it’s not as bad as Ruby Woo.

SAMSUNG CSC

Looks better on fairer skin.

6. M.A.C in RUSSIAN RED

SAMSUNG CSC

Russian Red is an intense bluish-red with Matte finish

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Russian Red to me is like a cousin of Ruby Woo – both are the ultimate timeless red lipsticks that lovers of sultry lips would know for sure.

SAMSUNG CSC

But it’s better than Ruby Woo because it glides more smoothly and it definitely didn’t make me feel like my lips are peeling from the rough application.

7. M.A.C in M.A.C RED

SAMSUNG CSC

M.A.C Red is a vivid bright bluish-red with Satin finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Another lipstick with a gorgeous sheen that leaves behind a lip tint-like stain after a few hours of wearing.

SAMSUNG CSC

It’s smooth and doesn’t feather despite it being creamy.

SAMSUNG CSC

The next 3 (from left): MAC in Chili and Viva Glam Rihanna, Chanel Rouge Allure in 99 Pirate.

8. M.A.C in CHILI

SAMSUNG CSC

Chili is a brownish orange-red with Matte finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Swatched it on my hand before purchase and fell in love with it instantly (plus, MAC was having a collaborative sale with Sephora ION at that time!) It’s not your typical red – it’s a sophisticated red that doesn’t appear too “intimidating” like the others.

SAMSUNG CSC

Love it but don’t think I pull off the look. I’m sure it’d be very flattering on warmer skin tone 🙂

9. M.A.C in VIVA GLAM RIHANNA

SAMSUNG CSC

Viva Glam Rihanna is a blue-red with Frost finish.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Rihanna is no stranger to the MAC community. Having worked with MAC twice (or thrice?), she has produced countless of incredibly gorgeous lipsticks (hate myself for not getting anything from her 2013 Holiday collection). This one I’m holding right here is no different. The frost finish leaves your lips looking moisturised and healthy.

SAMSUNG CSC

Andddd I love that it is not in the standard packaging too. *thumbs up*

Moving on from M.A.C…

10. Chanel Rouge Allure in 99 PIRATE

SAMSUNG CSC

99 Pirate is a blue-red with a beautiful sheen.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Originally released in 2012, it was recently repromoted in the new Allure Rouge range with an improved formula that helps keep lips supple and protected. I saw it once on BoA (one of the pioneers in K-Pop) and thought it really looked pretty on her. Heh.

SAMSUNG CSC

The new formula also made it more pigmented!

SAMSUNG CSC

High-end brands differentiate themselves with their unique packaging. Chanel uses the push-to-open mechanism for easy handling.

Of course, being an ardent fan of Urban Decay, how can it not be on my list, right? 😉

SAMSUNG CSC

The final 3 (from left): Urban Decay in 69, F-Bomb and Bang. (yes, all the sexual connotations)

11. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in 69

SAMSUNG CSC

69 is a bright red with pink undertone.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

My favourite red from Urban Decay, it’s very pigmented, moisturising and has a very nice cool undertone.

SAMSUNG CSC

It’s prettily bold and extremely emollient. LOVE IT TO BITS! (In case you’re wondering, Catfight is way darker and pinker, hence it does not qualify to be on this list)

12. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-BOMB

SAMSUNG CSC

F-Bomb is a classic red.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

Extremely creamy with a not-so-strong blue undertone, this is even redder than the reddest MAC lipstick in my stash. It’s probably called F-Bomb because it transforms the user into a bombshell with this insanely pigmented red. A mini version of F-Bomb is also included in the Full Frontal Lipstick Stash.

SAMSUNG CSC

Forget about red undergarments. This red lipstick is sure to bring you lots of luck and fortune at the gambling table this Chinese New Year 😀

13. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in BANG

SAMSUNG CSC

Bang is a bright orange-red.

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

The “Lady Danger” of Urban Decay, it actually bears a stark similarity to the popular orange-red MAC lipstick but this is a tone darker. It is also more buttery and saturated.

SAMSUNG CSC

This bold colour will turn heads on the streets!

And finally, some swatches to conclude this post:

SAMSUNG CSC

Swatch of all the featured shades! Whoops, my poor planning led to the mess towards the end hehe. But yes, some of them are really dupes of each other!

And there you go, different variations of reds to choose from for a more glamourous look. 😉

What do you guys think? Feel free to share with me some of your favourite red lipsticks in the comments below! I believe there are some mention-worthy red lipsticks, or cheaper dupes which you can get from drugstores at half the price of those featured here.

That’s all for this post! Thanks for reading 🙂

REVIEW: Urban Decay Vice3 Palette

Hey everyone!

Urban Decay’s Holiday Lineup this year has been pretty amazing! If you guys don’t know, Holiday 2014 from Urban Decay includes 6 individual items, 4 of which are new (because the All-Nighter Makeup Setting Spray already existed before this even though it now comes in two). I was contemplating real hard about getting TEN, a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set before heading to Sephora but I didn’t see it there so I guess it’s a sign not to overspend this month. Haha so yes, only got myself 2 awesome products from the holiday lineup! (This and the Full Frontal Lipstick Stash)

urbandecay-holiday-2014

1. Urban Decay Vice3 / 2. Black Magic 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil Set / 3. TEN 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set / 4. Full Frontal Lipstick Stash / 5. Naked Illuminated / 6. All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Duo

And since I’ve already reviewed about the lipsticks, this post shall be dedicated to Vice 3! I believe it’s one of the most highly anticipated UD items this year after Naked 3.

SAMSUNG CSC

Freebies (the colour pouch below the palette) with every purchase of Vice3!

SAMSUNG CSC

Authenticity tag

SAMSUNG CSC

The palette comes with another pouch!

The palette case itself is made of very smooth and durable material like Vice 2 (thankfully not Vice 1, because the NARS-like rubbery material attracted so much dust), making it slightly heavy. The “Vice” icon is neon-green jeweled to match the highly metallized green base. The entire packaging is really sleek and gorgeous!

Like Vice 1 and 2, you’d be greeted with a huge mirror when you open the palette. There are also 20 new breathtaking yet feasible colours that you can use on a daily basis.

SAMSUNG CSC

*GASP* Gorgeous, isn’t it?!?

Don’t be fooled by the bright colours because most of them do not turn out to be like that.

I love this palette because it has quite a number of pinks and purples. The neutral colours are also not too bold and vibrant.

SAMSUNG CSC

Comes with a double-ended brush, as usual.

This palette comes with a brush which I won’t use because I’m not really a fan of Urban Decay’s brushes. They tend to be very prickly during use and sometimes my eyes would tear when I’m applying shadows on the inner corners and lower lids. I casually tested the Vice3 brush on my hand and could still feel the prick so yeah, I guess it’s still the same as before.

Note: I use Sigma brushes. They’re the best so far!

Time to swatch!

SAMSUNG CSC

SAMSUNG CSC

I actually adjusted the picture’s brightness on an editing software to make them show. Before the enhancement, most of them (especially Truth, Alien, Last Sin and Bobby Dazzle) were pretty much invisible. Hope you guys can see it better now! The colours still stay true to the above pictures.

My favourite colours from this palette are Lucky, Alchemy, Downfall and Defy. Those are very nice browns! *thumbs up*

I only swatched all of them at most thrice on my hand and as you can see, most of the shades are not very pigmented (especially those in the first picture) – which can be both good and bad. If you wanted an eyeshadow palette with great colour payoff, I guess you can give this a miss. But if you’re someone who doesn’t wear heavy eyeshadow, go and get it!

SAMSUNG CSC

Blended some browns with pinks.

Vice3 is limited edition (or while stocks last) and they are retailing at S$88 in local Sephora stores. To avoid feeling the pinch, be sure to use your discounts (and I’ve been emphasizing this, repeating like a broken recorder in all my UD posts haha) when you pay!

Oh and I’m not sure if they are still giving out freebies with every purchase of Vice 3 palettes (bought mine more than 2 weeks ago), but this is what you should get:

SAMSUNG CSC

Amongst them are a mini All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray and several sample products.

I was supposed to get a Deluxe B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray but stocks ran out and so I was forced to accept the All Nighter spray. That’s fine too! On top of that, if you bought at least S$100 worth of Urban Decay items, you are also entitled to a chance at their lucky dip where ONE lucky person could walk away with a Pulp Fiction palette! My luck with lucky dip has always been terrible so of course I went home without any prizes. Haha.

That’s all for this post! Oops, I’ve been bombarding my blog with too many beauty reviews! Don’t worry foodies, food reviews are coming up next!

What are your thoughts about Vice3? 🙂

Talk to you guys next time 😉
