Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

Product Description:

The Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss comes in a chic black, gold and clear plastic tube. Inside it, it comes with a doe foot applicator. The glossy formula by Revlon combines sheer color and intense moisture with light-reflecting spheres to create amazing shine. It also contains SPF 15. Each tube contains 0.2fl oz (5.9ml) of product.

I actually really like the texture of these lip glosses a lot. They go on smoothly and are not sticky at all. There is a slight sweet vanilla scent.

They have a good variety of colours to choose from. I find the colours to be pigmented, especially those from the Summer 2010 collection (Coral Reef, Peach Petal).

Here's what I own:
Coral Reef: A really bright, neonish-looking coral. I love how bright this is. It's a lovely shade if you like bright bold colours.
Peach Petal: A milky pale nude peach. This shade is really pale so it can make you look dead. But you can layer over other lip sticks or mix with other lip glosses to lighten the initial colour.
Nude Lustre: A neutral beige peach or maybe pink. It's kind of hard to describe such a neutral colour. But it's my MLBB colour. I think this would suit most people.
Pink Pursuit: A slightly sheer medium pink with subtle silver shimmers and glitters. The colour doesn't really appear on my pigmented lips. I'm not fond of Pink Pursuit because this particular formula stings my lips whenever I apply it. I think it's probably due to the glitters. :(

These retail for SGD$19.90 in Singapore. You can get them for US$6.99 from online stores like

Overall Thoughts:
I actually think Revlon makes the best drugstore lip glosses. I really like these Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glosses a lot. They are my current favourites and I would highly recommend them if you like non-sticky lip glosses. I just wish they'll release more colours in Singapore.

New Hauls: Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes and Blushes

ok, I got this a while back. Figured I'll post them (I'm so lazy in updating the blog lately >.< ) I picked up 3 Sleek I-Divine eyeshadow palettes and 2 blushes. Got Sleek Original i-Divine Palette, Storm i-Divine Palette and Bad Girl i-Divine Palette.

A quick review. These palettes are indeed gorgeous. The eyeshadows are really lovely. The shimmery shades are very pigmented and smooth but I find the matte shades lack in pigmentation. I also find these eyeshadows to be quite powdery too so it gets a little messy around the palette.

And I got Sleek blush in Suede and Life's a Peach.

These blushes look big here but they are actually quite small. I would say they are packed very compactly and a good size for bringing along for travelling. Suede is a tawny peachy brown shade while Life's a Peach is a apricot colour (yes I finally learnt that it should be described as apricot blush instead of orange). I haven't tried both yet but if I had to recommend, I would pick Suede because it's a more unique shade. It also has a lot of rave reviews that it goes on like a natural flush so that's why I got it.

Overall, I really like the items I got. I think they are of good value for the quality of product.

You can get Sleek makeup from or if you are in Singapore,

Review: Daiso Blushes - Ellefar Multi Cheek in Beige and Orange

A while back, I was wondering whether there is any cheap (inexpensive) makeup selling in Singapore. I did a little bit of research and of course Daiso was one of the brands mentioned.

For $2, you can get these Daiso blushes Ellefar Multi Cheeks. They are packaged really nicely and in fact, look similar to Canmake Cheek Gradation blushes.

I picked up Ellefar Multi Cheeks in Orange and Beige. I was really drawn to Beige in the box as it's a super pretty peachy pink shade.

Orange is a burnt orange shade which is a little too dark for me but I think it will look nice on slightly medium tanned skin. Beige is this peachy pink shade, which should be flattering on most skintones. When swatched, there's a little bit of shimmer but it's not noticeable on the face. I do not find the blush shades to be extra unique after trying them out but still, these are very decent blushes for the price you are paying. As you can see from the swatches, these blushes are super pigmented. You might want to apply with a light hand when using these.

These blushes come with blush applicators. I usually like to keep the applicators inside the casing (and use them if the bristles are soft) but I would recommend throwing these out because they have a strong chemical smell. Just use your own blush brush.

For $2, I would say these Daiso blushes are definitely worth a try. They are budget friendly for those unwilling to spend too much money on makeup and those who don't really apply makeup often.

There is a total of 4 shades. There's one in Pink, which is just a very sweet pink shade and another in Brown, a dark brown shade which is more suitable for contouring. - Spring 2012

I feel very inspired after watching fashion-related videos. I really enjoy playing around with, where I can channel all my creativity juices into it.

Inspired to play with colours this time since it's spring. Some quick looks I put together.
