Château Labiotte Wine Lip Tint in Rose Coral

Hi loves!

I'll share my swatches of the other product that my friend Tellie gave me when we last met up way back in September last year.

Château Labiotte Wine Lip Tint in Rose Coral

It was a gift, along with the Peripera Peri's INK VELVET in So Grapefruit,
 from South Korea where she's currently staying.

I chose from a number of this mini size versions and I picked this shade... obviously because it's close to my favorite color (Salmon Pink)! Well... I usually like anything that's peachy pink. ;)

But before I go to the swatches, let's appreciate this super adorable packaging... I mean a wine shaped lippie?!? That's like two of my favorite things in one! How awesome can you get???

For this instance, it's three favorite things because of the color. ;)

Anyway, here are the product descriptions from the website:

I like that it promises that it's long-lasting and that it can give good moisture and pigment. I also like that it has some wine extract in it. ;)

The mini bottle has an applicator equipped that's also mini sized but still easy to apply the product on the lips.

Now here are the swatches!

Here it is at first swatch

Here is the swatch when it dries

And when I wash my hands with soap... look! It's still there!

And below are pics of the product on my lips:

One coat

Two coats

Three coats

So the product is buildable. With one coat, it just looks like my natural lips but more hydrated. I like wearing it with two coats.

I would agree with all the claims because it is indeed long-lasting and stays true to the swatches. The only thing that I would advise you is to keep your lips hydrated and maybe use a lips scrub because this product makes your dry areas of the lips very visible. 

I love this product still. It's like my lips but better. I love having this in my kikay kit because it's just too cute, like I'm carrying wine with me everywhere. :D

Luxe Gel Eyeliner in Tear Pink and Rose Burgundy

Hey everyone!

Sharing a short swatch post of two of my latest gel eyeliners!

Luxe Gel Eyeliner in Tear Pink and Rose Burgundy

I bought them because they were on sale at Althea for PhP 150.00 only from it's original price of PhP 400.00. I thought that it was a good deal and the shades I picked are colors that I will surely use often.

The packaging of the liners is pretty common, but I really appreciate this kind of design because it looks classy and professional. I also like that there's a part at the bottom end of the pencil that has the color of the shade so it's easy to find among my stash.

You can visit Althea's page for more info about the product (it has hi-res pictures of all 10 shades available). But to summarize up the claims, this eyeliner is very pigmented, waterproof, doesn't break easily, and long-lasting. And it has an airtight packaging!

This is Tear Pink. On the website it's called True Pink but in the packaging it's Tear Pink.

Here are the info on the packaging.

I always make sure that I have a light, shimmery pink eyeliner in my stash because I like wearing it on my inner corners of my eye lids. They brighten your eyes instantly!

This is Rose Burgundy.
I chose this because I don't have a color like this and i just find it really beautiful.

Product info:

I think it goes well with my current hair color! :D

Here are the swatches:

Tear Pink and Rose Burgundy

I got these swatches in one swipe of the eyeliners.
Now to check how long-lasting it is...

Here's how it is when I tried to smudge it...

When faced under running water

When smudged while wet

Rubbed rigorously while wet

It's pretty impressive and I think all the claims indicated are true. 
And below you'll see how I usually wear them together:

Tear Pink on the inner corners and Rose Burgundy on the outer part of the lower lash line.

I think both eyeliners are amazing and for PhP 150.00, they're a steal! What do you think?

Ellana Cosmetics Multipurpose Pure Pigments in Dove

Hey dears!

Gonna share a quick swatch post. :D

I'll share with you the shimmery goodness of this eyeshadow that I got from the brand's promo bundle called "Party Gal." I bought the bundle because it was such a great deal and a couple of the products that I plan on getting is already in that bundle. I thought I'd get more products for almost the same price than if I bought them individually.

Ellana Cosmetics Multipurpose Pure Pigments in Dove
It's PhP 199.00 when you buy it individually.

Product description from the website:

Dove can be used as:
- LIP COLOR LIGHTENER (when lip color is too dark)

I love that this product is multi-purpose and a white shimmery powder can be used often and in many ways. 

Here's the swatch:

Here's how the pigments look upclose

Here's how it looks when spread

I haven't tried it on the lips but I love is as a highlighter and as an eyeshadow. I like putting it on the inner corners of my eyes as seen on the photo below:

It brightens the eyes and just adds sparkles! I love sparkles. ^_^
I love sparkly shadows because it makes me feel like a fairy princess. Yay!
Yeah... it makes my six-year-old self come out. 

And that's my post about the Ellana Cosmetics Multipurpose Pure Pigments in Dove! Thoughts?

Review : MSH Love Liner Liquid in Rich Black

Hello dearies!

I've been a fan of eyeliners from Japanese brands for years, and that is why when I have friends who go to the Land of the Rising Sun, I usually request them to buy me one. This product that I'll be sharing is one of the products that a friend bought me during her trip to Japan some months ago.

MSH Love Liner Liquid in Rich Black

I'm not sure how much she bought this but when I was in Tokyo last January, it costs around PhP800.00 when converted from yen and it's included in their bestsellers too.

At first I was doubtful if this were any good. I wasn't aware of the brand unlike the other liners my friend bought for me—Dolly Wink and K Palette. That's why it took a while before I opened this one. :P

But before I continue with my review, let's check out the product info:

The labels are in Japanese so I can't understand them so I tried googling. Here's the product description from the website:

The best color development in love liner! Eye liner that does not fail ☆ 
Gentle to the eyes with plenty of moisturizing ingredients, durability · coloring UP!Impression of eyes Newly! A new color "Dark Brown" is born!

  • Durability & coloring keeping power!
  • Aluminum bottle with a heavy feeling!
  • Easy to sweat · sebum · Easy to tears Make-off!
  • Moisturizing ingredients High makeup makes your makeup moist!

Here's are the labels around the product:

I actually love the packaging. I appreciate the usual eyeliner pens that are light in weight but I like the aluminum look and the heavier weight because it resembles the drawing pens that I usually use when I draw in terms of weight and thickness.

I also like the part that it is sort of stainless. It's quite different from the designs of most eyeliners because of the metallic surface and the rose gold color which I absolutely like.

The tip is a brush that is soft enough to easily apply the liner smoothly, but stiff enough that it's easy to control. It's just the right kind of applicator that I like when it comes to eyeliner pens.

The tip is thin enough to create a beautiful winged liner too. I have tried liners that are thinner but this one is just right for me.

With one swatch, you get this color:

It's quite buildable too. It's not as black as, let's say gel liners, but I'm very satisfied with the blackness of this eyeliner. There's minimal shine, but it still looks great. It also dries fast after application so no need to wait too long to open your eyes.

I tried rubbing it a few times and nothing happened.

I tried rubbing it while wet and it's still there.

Some of the came off when I rubbed it hard while wet.
(But I doubt you'd rub your eye as hard as I did)

Here's how it looks when I apply it:

The lasting power is pretty impressive. I think this one is by far the best I've tried! Why? It can last the whole day, even when my lids get oily. My eyeshadow is already ruined, but my liner still looks great! Even when I travel and been walking and sweating all day long, my eyeliner is still intact! 

What's even more impressive is that even if it lasts long, it's easy to remove with cleanser or makeup remover! No more tugging of skin! I only use my Physiogel Cleanser on a cotton pad and it gets completely removed. Awesome, right?

So to summarize:

What I LIKE:

- Long-lasting
- Sweat-proof and can even last on my oily lids
- Packaging
- Glides smoothly
- I'm satisfied at how black it is
- Dries easily after application
- Price is quite fair


- Not available in the Philippines :(

Will I buy again? Oh I definitely will!
I recommend you try this. I love this so much I even bought one for my sister in Australia to try. Haha! It's really good. :)

Have you tried this eyeliner yet?
