Colourette: Velvetints Review

Hello Loves!!

I will be sharing with you my thoughts about the newest collection of Colourette Cosmetics, the Velvetints.

The Colourette Cosmetics celebrated their 3rd year anniversary and in connection to this, they released their newest collection that can be use in 3 different ways. The Velvetints can be used for eyes, cheeks and lips which is so great. Isn’t it amazing? One product for three ways already is really going to be a lifesaver and a must have on our kikay kit, right? 😊

I got the package that includes the tints and a cute sticker decal in a box. I was so happy when I received it and was so excited to try it, so if you want to know more about the newest Colourette product please keep on reading. 😊

SPECIFICS: 3 ml.

 

Packaging: comes in a glass tube with black cover. It has a flat doe foot applicator with shade name at the bottom and name Colourette.

IMG_E8957

CLAIMS:

  • Pigmented
  • Dries from velvet to powdery matte finish
  • Works in 3 ways: cheeks, eyes and lips
  • Stays all day while remaining comfy on lips

IMG_E8956

Shades:

  • RSVP – a muted, everyday red that can take every Filipina from day to night.
  • Birthday Cake – a rich brown that any skin tone can rock.
  • Rose – a warm pink designed to complement all Filipina skin tones.

 

PRICE: P299.00 each

I tried to use the liptints for almost 12 hours, 9 hours at the office and additional 3 hours outside the office. I didn’t retouch my liptints entire day to test if it is really long lasting and of course I ate to make sure to test the product. The scent of the tints is a little fruity because I can smell cherry but not that much. I tried it and it was rally blendable, easy to apply on cheeks, lips and eyelids, pigmented and very comfy on lips when applied. I also noticed that it’s true “little goes a long way” because one dip on the tint is  enough on lips and at least 1-2 dots for cheeks or eyelids goes a long way.

 

VERDICT:

Packaging: The packaging for me is simple but still okay since the Colourette is known for simple packaging which is clear glass tube and black cover.

Price: The price for me is little pricey for a 3 ml product since there are other tints which is cheaper that offers the same claims but for me it is still fine since it’s a 3-way product and a little goes a long way. I highly suggest if you want to try it, purchase at least 1 shade first that you really like and if you love the formula save money to purchase the other shades. (just a piece of advice 😊)

Shades: The shades for me are super bomb! I like all the shades and my favorite is the Birthday Cake since I love nudes. It complements my fair skin complexion and I think it will also complement other skin tones.

Formula: I like the tints because as what the product claims it is really blendable, pigmented, long lasting and very powdery matte finish when applied. I just noticed that it is not transfer proof but still okay for me because even it transfers, the tints remaining on the lips still looks good. I also noticed that yes, it is really long lasting but when I tried it for 12 hours without retouch it makes my lips dry. I still use it but what I’m doing now is I remove it after 3-4 hours and retouch it. I observed that in that way it’s better for me so that my lips will not dry.

Final Verdict, I think the Velvetints are still a “must try and must have” product on your kikay kit because what I really like about it are the shades, they are pigmented, little goes a long way and we can already use it in 3-ways. However, for me personally it is really pricey for a 3ml product and also because I am retouching it every 3-4 hours since it is really drying my lips if I’m wearing it too long so it’s a waste of product, time and money. Am I going to buy it again? Sorry Colourette but just maybe because I think my lips is not good with it but might purchase it again for the cheeks and eyelids only and because of the nice shades.

Ellana Mineral Cosmetics: Lip in Luxe Liquid Matte Lipstick

Hello Loves!

Today I want to share with you my thoughts about Ellana Cosmetics Lip in Luxe Liquid Lipstick since it’s so obvious on the title… hahaha just kidding.  I went to Landmark in Trinoma last time since I need to buy a gift and luckily there is an ongoing sale for make-up products. The Ellana Cosmetics gave a 50% off for their Lip in Luxe Liquid Matte Lipstick so I bought 1 shade which is the “Love is Amazing”.

Specifics: 7 ml.

Packaging: The box is color white, it looks simple but elegant. The ingredients, instruction, manufacturing date, expiration and a #mantraoftheday can be seen on the box which is so cute.

The lip in luxe comes in a clear like glass or acrylic tube with a black cover (old version). It has only the name “Ellana Mineral Cosmetics” on it and it has a doe foot applicator to easily apply the lipstick.

IMG_E8985

CLAIMS:

  • Color that last all day
  • Made with vegan ingredients
  • Talc free
  • Cruelty free
  • Creamy matte
  • Smudge proof
  • Water proof

SHADES: They have lots of shades but what I got is “Love is Amazing”. The Lipstick names are love-inspired which is very unique but quiet long to remember.

DOQV2589

PRICE: P499.00 but I got mine for about P245.00 because they are on sale last time.

I tried to use the lipstick for the entire day, when I apply it on my lips it is so creamy and it’s so easy to glide on the lips. The lipstick is weightless and you feel you don’t have any lipstick on. I have worn it for 8 hours without retouch and of course I eat to test it. The lipstick has no scent which is okay for me even I’m used to lipsticks with sweet scents. The product claims to have a creamy matte finish which is true.

The lipstick is smudge proof but for transfer proof there’s still a little lipstick stain that I noticed on my glass and straw on my 1st use but when I use it again, I blend it well and wait to settle which works better.

VERDICT:

The Ellana Lipstick is still a “must have” lipstick for me. The lipstick is really long lasting and I really test it without retouching for 8 hours and it still really looks good on my lips. I can say that it is really a creamy mate finish because even it is a matte lipstick it didn’t make my lips dry which is good. The water proof and smudge proof are fine but for me it’s still not totally smudge proof & water proof, because there are still little tints left on my glass and the lipstick inside part of my lips are remove while I am wearing it, but that is not problem because it’s just too minimal and it’s not noticeable. I just find it a little pricey for a matte lipstick because there are other brands with same claim that is cheaper in the market so for me if this is on sale you better grab that opportunity If you want to try the Ellana Lipsticks.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored blog post and I just want to share my honest review of this products. My reviews are based on my own experience so keep on mind that it might work okay or not for me but might work or not for you. I hope you find these reviews helpful since my reviews are 100% pure honesty.

Blair Japan: Be the Statement and Velvet Mousse Lipsticks

I purchased 2 shades each of Blair Cosmetics Velvet Mousse and Be the Statement Lipsticks last September 2018, so it’s almost a month now that I have been using these products. I always make sure that I will try to use it first for at least a month to really test all the products that I will be reviewing. The Blair Cosmetics launched their products I think 2016 or 2017 if I’m not mistaken but I just recently try it because my make-up addictions just started mid of this year. Hahaha

I bought the lipsticks from Blair Cosmetics Mnl Shop and Eunice (seller) is so friendly and approachable. They have their Instagram account so if you want to check them out here is the link: https://www.instagram.com/blaircosmeticsmnl/

The two lipsticks are different because the Velvet Mousse is a liquid type lipstick while the Be the Statement is a lipstick stick type, if you want to know more about the two lipsticks keep on reading. 😊

IMG_7498

BLAIR VELVET MOUSSE LIPSTICK and BE THE STATEMENT

Specifics: 6ml/2 oz.

Packaging: They have both same box color which is black and gold. It looks so classic and sophisticated.

IMG_7503

The Velvet Mouse comes in a glass tube with gold cover. It has a doe foot applicator but without shade name on it.

The Be the Statement comes in a Black and Gold container with a magnet attached to the cover & the container. It has no shade name on the container as well.

Hack: The box has a shade sticker on it, what I did is I remove it from the box and stick it on at the bottom of the container. 😊

IMG_7715

Claims:

Blair Velvet Mousse

  • Velvety Smooth Texture
  • Pigmented
  • Bold and Weightless
  • Soft with mousse and matte-like texture
  • It has Non-drying, comforting and conditioning ingredients

Blair Be the Statement

  • HD Matte
  • Rich, creamy texture
  • Organic
  • Ultra-pigmented
  • Deep Luster and intense color
  • Vitamin Boosted

Shades:

Blair Velvet Mousse has 6 shades and I got Burnt Nude and Thorned Rose.

Blair Be the Statement has 8 shades and I got Maeve and Elle.

Price:

Prices may vary but I bought mine for only P299.00 each since they have a promo so if you want to check them out visit the Blair Cosmetics Mnl shop now. 😊

BLAIR BE THE STATEMENT

I tried to use the lipstick for the entire day, when I apply it on my lips it is so creamy and it’s so easy to glide on the lips. The lipstick is weightless and buttery feeling while on the lips. I have worn it for 8 hours but with little retouch after every meal. The lipstick has no scent like the other lipstick sticks. The product claims to have a matte finish but for me it is a satin finish but if you want it to be matte you just need to pat it with a tissue paper. The product is moisturizing and non-drying on the lips, pigmented, it has lots of shades to choose from, handy and has a classic sophisticated packaging which I love about this product. The things that I just don’t like is the shade name on the box not on the lipstick container but I have a hack for you so that is fine and it is not transfer proof since it is a satin finish so it’s fine as well.

BLAIR VELVET MOUSSE

I tried to use the Velvet Mousse for the entire day, when I apply it you can feel that it is creamy and it’s so easy to glide on the lips as well compare to other lip creams. The lipstick is like a combination of lip tint and lip cream for me, because it leaves tint on the lips even its removed like a lip tint and at the same time like a lip cream because of its creamy texture. The velvet mouse is non-drying because it has moisturizing ingredient that leaves my lips moisturized all day. The product is also weightless so you can’t feel it while you are wearing it. The finish for me is a satin finish, but if you want it to be matte just pat a tissue paper. The things that I just don’t like same with the Be the Statement is the shade name on the box not on the lipstick container but I have a hack for you so that is fine and it is not transfer proof since it is a satin finish so for me it’s still acceptable. I also noticed that the smell of the Velvet Mousse is not good, I can’t distinguish if it’s because of the ingredients and also because I am used to use lip creams with fruity and sweet scents, the good thing with this is after the application you can’t smell it anymore compare to other lipsticks that has strong smells.

Verdict:

The Velvet Mousse and Be the Statement Lipsticks is still going to be a “must have” on your kikay kit. I still recommend these products. The formula is good and the shades are awesome for all skin complexion. The price for me now is reasonable because before when they just launched the lipsticks it is quite pricey but they now lower down the price which is very good so that everyone can try it. The Blair cosmetics are now available not just online because they already have at malls compare before. They also have lots of distributors and resellers now which is really a convenient. I personally love the Maeve shade for the Be the Statement collection and the Thorned Rose for the Velvet Mousse collection.

The Velvet Mousse and Be the Statement collection is available at Blair Cosmetics Mnl. They also have other Blair Cosmetics products so for more information you can contact them here:

Art of Busy: Beauty Vlogging 101

I wanted to share my Kipling experience last September 21, 2018. I am one of the lucky participants that was chosen to be part of the free workshop at Kipling’s store in Mall of Asia. The free workshop was about beauty vlogging 101 and guess what, the beauty vlogger who conducted the workshop is one of my favorite vloggers none other than Ms. Anna Cay. I am really her fan and I am so starstruck when I saw her. Hahaha

The host of the event was also one of my favorites, Ms. Janeena Chan. I really like her for being so jolly and friendly. She really boosts the good vibes on the events she’s hosting.

The workshop gave us idea about vlogging especially for those participants that are aspiring vloggers. Ms. Anna Cay advise that Beauty Vloggers are also called Beauty Gurus, Influencers and also Content Creator which she wants to be personally called.

She shared her life journey before she became so popular as a content creator. She shared to us her 1st vlog post and we laugh because she was so shy to reminisce it.

She shared to us the cameras and equipment’s that she used for vlogging. She advice to us that for starters it is not a necessity to have good camera and we can start to use what we already have, like our own smartphones. She advises us that the important is the uniqueness of the content regardless what camera we use.

She also shared to us her very own 3 Fundamentals in vlogging which are:

  1. Content
  2. Quality
  3. Personality

IMG_E6643

She explained to us that the content we should choose is really our passion, the goal as well is for us to give good quality videos to provide our viewers the best viewing experience and the most important is the personality because we should have to show our viewers the real us because this will make us unique as a content creator.

She also shared about he upcoming make-up line business that will be launch around November 2018 but this is just a tentative launching date. She advises that she will announce everything if it is finalized already. She also shares about her App so for those who haven’t download it yet it’s already available on App Store and Play Store.

I learned a lot of things about this workshop because maybe in the future I will also be starting my own Youtube Channel. Hahahah I also learn some tips that I can also apply for blogging.

I really want to thank Kipling Philippines for this wonderful event. I personally love their bags because it’s really durable and it has lots of compartments inside. I personally only have 1 Kipling Bag because we all know it’s quite pricey but its worth it because the quality is good and since I received a discount coupon from the event, I will be using it to purchase for my second bag! Yehey!

Thank you so much Kipling Philippines and Ms. Anna Cay for the wonderful workshop and thanks for the coin purse that you gave us as a token of appreciation. I really appreciate it! 😊

 

So that’s it! Thank you everyone for reading and I hope you learned what I learned from the workshop. I placed the links for you so you can follow them too and for you to check if they will have other upcoming free workshops as well.

QXOK0485

I try to use all the Dream Cream Tints, the packaging is so nice because it is really suitable for the Dream Cream because of the monochrome color of the stars and moons. The tag line and the front of the box is embossed to emphasize it. The lip tints are also handy because the size is small that can fit on a small pouch. The applicator is also good same with other lipsticks to blend well the tint on the lips. The smell of the tint is fruity which I also like because I love make-ups and skincare that has good smell. The Skinpotions products are known for sweet and fruity scents that’s why I love their products so much.

I apply It on my lips and it is so easy to blend and you can feel that it’s so light like there’s a powder on it even it’s a liquid. I also notice it is really powder velvet finish because its not dry or matte on the lips and at the same time not wet. I also try to wear it long time and it stays even I eat but I still need to retouch to fill in the inside of my lips. I also love the tints because it keeps my lips moisturize even I wear it long time since it contains Shea Butter and Argan Oil. I try to use it on my cheeks and lids as well, it was great as what the product claims.

JKCL3896

Verdict:

I will be honest with my review and base on the product claims, I will agree that the Dream Cream tints are light as air when apply, it has powder velvet finish, it’s blendable, the Shea Butter and Argan Oil are great ingredients since it didn’t dry my lips and its multi-way to use. The shades are also good for all skin complexion. The colors are amazing because I have notice that if you put one shade on the lips, cheeks and lid, it seems you use different shades. I notice that the tint gives monochromatic color on my face when I use it. I want just to comment on the long wearing claim because for me on the lids and cheeks it is but, on the lips, you still need to retouch inside the lips because since it is powdery velvet it can be easily remove. I also notice that since it is powdery finish it easily spreads on my lips and sometimes I didn’t notice its beyond my lips line already since it’s very light.

I will still say that this product is a “must have” because it is still worth it to buy because with the product claims it is still 6/7 for the lips and 7/7 for the cheeks and lids which is great. The product is also affordable because it cost 249.00 pesos each and It can already be use multi-way. I advise that you try if for yourself because this is base only on my own review and it might be different for you.

The Skinpotions have kiosks on some malls and resellers where you can buy the Dream Cream Tints. They also have Instagram and Facebook page where you can check their other products and a website where you can order online so here’s the link: https://skinpotionsph.com/

I also just want to add that my top 3 shades are Scarlett, Harper and Brooklyn but I’m still #teamall. 😊

So that’s it for my review for Skinpotions Dream Cream Tints and hope you enjoyed it! Please feel free to comment or leave some suggestions, I will love to hear from you and I will also appreciate if you tell me what’s your favorite shade😊

Love lots,

Pring
