Cocopiel Circle Lens Haul!

OKDGG.com(One stop online shopping site for everything Korean) has kindly sponsored me with another haul and this time is contact lens haul from COCOPIEL! I am someone that could hardly live without contact lens and was pleasantly surprised when introduced to CoCoPiel as they have a huge variety of lenses for me to choose from. It is so hard to find trust-able online retailer for lenses nowadays so I’m glad to know about CoCoPiel.

I chosen four pairs of lenses and they arrived just before Chinese New Year! Comes with freebies too! I got two collagen mask and a super cute hair band that I’m using it for my Blythe. 😛

The lenses are well packed into individual boxes that comes with a lens case. This is what all retailers, be it online or physical stores should provide. The local stores always just give me one lens case when I purchased 4 pairs of lenses.

The lenses on CoCoPiel are categorized by colors so it’s pretty easy to browse through the huge variety they have. They also have Toric and Hydrogel lenses available. They also have crazy lenses that are suitable for Cosplay! Do note that the prices stated are for zero degree lenses only. You have to add USD6 for a pair of lens with power.

I got a pair of blue, grey, green and violet lens respectively. Here’s a close up of the lenses in their bottles. I love the grey pair with the star design, it’s call Cutie Grey if I’m not wrong! It’s available in brown too! These lenses can be used up to 6 months to a year. But I’ll probably just wear them for 3 months max. Be sure to soak them with new solution for at least 4 hours after removing them from the glass bottles!

Here’s a close up of my eye, wearing the Fresh Glow Violet pair. I like how it brighten up my eyes and looked natural despite the bright colors. The diameter of the lens is 14.2 mm which I think is just nice. I’ve tried lenses with bigger diameter but those are slightly too over the top for my preference.

Here’s a selfie to show the overall effect. I like the dolly effect the lens produced.

I’ve worn the lenses out several times for over 10 hours each time and so far they have been very comfortable! But for those who have dry eyes like me, remember to bring a long eye drops to replenish moisture to your eyes throughout the day!

Review: Etude House Vivid Pop Stick

I’ve purchased these Vivid Pop Stick from Etude House some time back when they were having 40% store wide. These are actually in matte formula and I got the four darker brighter shades out of the colors available. I skipped the nudes and light pink and corals as I’m currently in a bright lip phase. Plus I think those colors will be a little chalky looking in matte formula.

These looks more crayon like due to the matte formula and I must say, what you see is what you get. And I love how easily I can draw my lips with these crayons lip sticks.

Here’s a swatch to show how pigmented and vivid these colors are.

And here’s a lip swatch. One thing I’ve noticed about these is that they can be a little drying and get into the lines of your lips after sometime. So it’s best to prep the lips with a balm first. And I must say they look a lot brighter in real life.

I also must say that the staying power of the vivid pop sticks are mediocre. They stay if you don’t eat or drink for up to 3-4 hours but if you do, they will be gone in no time. But if you don’t mind touching up since these are easier to bring along and apply, it should not be an issue.

Overall, I rate this a 3.5/5. But I must say I love the color payoff!

The vivid pop sticks are retailing at $14.90 if I’m not wrong.

Hope this helps.

Etude House Pink Play Party Season 4 in Singapore

I went to the Etude Pink Play Party on the 27th August at MBS! Was really excited as I can see Shinee!! Been a long time since their concert in Singapore. But of course, I’m a fan of Etude House too! How can I not be one when they have such pretty packaging. I love their Wonder Pore Freshener!

We were given a passport when we have to get stamps at different experience stations which will then grant us entry into the Talk and Sing stage area. But of course, they did not deny us entry to the stage area despite not completing the ‘passport’. Its just that we won’t be able to be that near the stage.

We have Kelvin Laoshi from Taiwan to demonstrate a quick and simple make up that can be done within 10 minutes. I must say the model is gorgeous! And of course the highlight of the event, SHINEE!!! Need I say more? Haha!

The stage performances were pretty short and sweet, ended within an hour. We can still roam around and try out Etude products at the ‘ Play’ area!

I mentioned that I’ve met up with Sehee, a blogger from Korean and I met her again at the Pink Play Party! As I mentioned, she’s Etude ambassador and she was going around interviewing girls at the event! She’s really very sweet!

20130906-003841.jpg

Overall the whole event is pretty ok. It is fun to be able to play with all the different kinds of makeup that Etude has to offered! It would have been better if the talk and sing stage area have like seats or something as it was quite tiring to stand throughout.

Wanna be Sweet? Play Etude!

Review: SkinMiso

Have you heard of SkinMiso? It’s Korean skincare brand that focuses on pore problems and also exfoliation of dead skin cells.

The kind people at Urban Hunter, distributor of SkinMiso have kindly provided me a complete set of the SkinMiso Pore Beauty Nose Pack plus Comedo Remover for review.

Now, let me introduce to you the SkinMiso Pore Beauty Nose Pack, just 3 simple steps to get rid of the strawberry nose that most of us have.

Step 1 and 2 are nose packs of different purposes. Step 1 will be the pack that will force the black and white heads out. Then we remove the impurities with either a cotton bud or the SkinMiso Comedo Remover. Step 2 helps in calming the skin and contracts the pores. Step 3 is the Pore Beauty Silky Essence which helps smooth out the pores.

I really liked how the smooth my nose is after using all 3 steps. The essence will make it velvety smooth!

Here’s me trying out the nose pack. Blackheads are always there on my nose and I’ve a lot. The battle with blackheads is a constant one unlike acne. I’ve tried many ways and products previously to get rid of the blackheads. SkinMiso is by far, the most efficient product I’ve tried.

Let me show you. It’s a little gross though. But the photo below shows the amount of gunk I managed to remove with first use of the nose pack.

The SkinMiso Comedo Remover comes in a cover as below which makes it more hygienic when storing it. It also have two ends to it, a wider and a narrower for the curves around the nose. The photo above shows the narrower end.

SkinMiso Pore Beauty Nose Pack is available at most Watsons stores and retails for $28.90.

The Comedo Remover is only available exclusively at Bellabox.sg. Buy the complete set at Bellabox to get a 15% savings off the complete set!

For those who have concerns of a strawberry nose, try out SkinMiso Pore Beauty Nose Pack today!

I rate it a 4/5 rating!

And if you ask if the Comedo Remover is worth getting? I would say yes as the quality is really good. I think it has to do with the thickness of the rim, some of the ones out there are too thin and it hurts when you apply pressure to the skin with it. The SkinMiso one is just nice for me, I don’t really feel pain when I’m applying pressure with it during the removing process.

Let’s get rid of those Strawberry nose with SkinMiso today!

First Beauty Collective Haul in 2013!

Hi all!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a beauty haul and it’s just awesome to be hauling beauty products. And so here’s my first beauty haul in 2013.

Etude house have loads of pretty glitter polishes now! These are $6.90 each!

I also got the nail polish set from the Etoinette collection. Look at the colors and that nail stickers! Too pretty to miss!! I’m going to wear this for CNY! This is $16.90.

Bought the Moisture Body Cream simply cause it smells really nice. It’s $22.90 for a 200ml tub. I also got the Silk Scarf hair mask to try after seeing Miyake raving about it on twitter. It’s $6.90 in the local Etude stores.

I‘ve also gotten the large 500ml bottle of the Wonder Pore Freshner at $32.90. Love this toner as I feel that it helps minimize the appearance of the pores plus refreshes the skin well. I’ve also gotten the emulsion from the skin mal:gem range to try as I’ve ran out of one to use for my day regime. It’s $25.90 for 200ml.

Saw that Canmake have 25% off at Watson’s the other say so I got their new foundation and primer to try. This is the natural range which does not includes any synthetic chemicals. It is also able to be removed with just water. The original price for the foundation and primer is $29.90 and $24.90 respectively.

Saw this set of 6 mini lip balms from Fresh going at 30% off which makes it $51, originally priced at $73. Lip balms are a staple in my regime and I always finish them real fast or lose them easily. The size of this lip balm is great to throw into the bag or purse!

I’m so glad that YSL have made its way back to SG shores. If not I will not have found out how awesome their range of lip sticks are. The two pictures are from their new Rouge Volupte Shine range. I’ve own two other from the Rouge Sheer Candy range and the Rouge Volupte Range. According to the BA, this new range is something in between the sheer candy and rouge volupte which provides a pigmented glossy color.

YSL priced their lipsticks at $45 each. I personally feel that it’s worth every single cent of it as it’s long lasting plus moisturizing. I love my sheer candy one so much that I’m contemplating to get a back up of the color I had. Now I’ve 4 lip sticks from YSL and trust me, this number will definitely increase over time.

And that’s all for my beauty haul post!

NOT!

It’s always great to share some beauty love with everyone so I’m giving out the SUGAR Lip Treatment from Fresh (the one on the extreme right in pic, dark brown packaging but it’s a clear balm) to one lucky reader!

To win, simply like my FB page if you have not and leave a comment below stating your FB name and why would you like to win the Lip Treatment.

The giveaway will end 1 Feb 2013 1800 HRS.

XOXO,
