Review + Lip Swatch: Mentholatum Lipice Water Colour in 03 Kissy Pink

So today's review is gonna be on Mentholatum's Lipice Water Colour in Kissy Pink. I bought it about 2 months back for $5.90 at...Watsons, I think? Or some random beauty store hahah, can't really remember :) here's what the packaging looks like:


It's supposed to contain hyaluronic acid, ceramides and some other moisturizing stuff. However, do note that it is NOT comparable to a lip balm in terms of moisturization.

It looks shockingly coral-red in the tube but on the lips --

20111025-002712.jpg gives a gorgeously natural, healthy wash of colour. Mind you, I did layer it over my Maybelline Babylips lipbalm (menthol) because my lips tend to dry out easily, so that might have sheered it out a bit. Wear-wise, the colour stayed put for at least 5 hours over a lipbalm. I imagine it'd stay on much longer without a balm though.

Here's a before and after comparison of my lips. I'm wearing a transparent lipbalm(Maybelline Babylips) in the naked lip pic.


Colour: 10/10
Moisturization: 6/10 (I wouldn't wear this without a lipbalm underneath)
Finish: Semi-glossy, does not emphasize fine lines.
Staying power: 8/10, this is pretty darn good for a tinted lipbalm.
Price: SGD5.90
Repurchase: Definitely, this is my new favourite lip colour!! *tosses NYX Round Lipgloss away*

My Regular Makeup

Decided to do a post to complain about my makeup because I just realized my makeup routine is really rather boring.

1) My base is always bbcream (spf45 PA+++ Elishacoy Gold Mineral BB!LUVV) and concealer
sunblock + primer on my t-zone + concealer

2) I always use the same glittery black eyeliner because I suck at blending eyeshadows and I'm absolutely terrified that my eyelids will turn brown

3) I don't use mascara too often because I'm afraid my lashes will drop or get really brittle and sparse

4)I seldom use blusher because I the last time i attempted to use it, I ended up glowing positively peony. And we all know how hard it is to rub blusher away, short of spamming pressed powder over it which would end up making your face look really cakey!
I really don't fancy washing off all my makeup and start my skincare routine over, waste my precious SKII please! Not rich okay!
Am attempting to master the art of applying blusher now though.

5) LIPSTICK, OMG I hate lipstick. Not moisturizing at all and looks so fake! AND IT TURNS LIPS BROWN, YUCK. I guess it suits some people but I can't wear lipstick, it makes me look about 40 years old.

5) Falsies. I have at least 30 pairs (Dollywink, Eyemazing, Daiso and some random brands) and I HARDLY WEAR THEM because I'm scared that they'll cause droopy eyelids in the future. But I still keep buying them for some reason. (Hint: The reason starts with Tsubasa and ends with Masuwaka). I just buy them, try them on when I'm home and keep them in a box, never to be worn again:(

Boring right! I think I damn kiasi la, everything also scared then never use zzz.

So here's a pic of the makeup I usually use:

L-R(Clockwise from flowers)
- Maybelline Pure Minerals concealers in 01 and 02
- Prime Time by Bare Escentuals
- Majolica Majorca Puff De Cheek in Macaroon Pink (newly introduced into my makeup routine!)
- Dollywink Liquid Eyeliner -- inner eyes
- Daiso Eyebrow Pencil (light brown)
- NYX Round Lipgloss in RLG04 Golden Red
- Maybelline Babylips lipbalm
- Maybelline Hypershine Diamonds Liquid eyeliner (Black)
- Lancome Poudre Majeure Excellence loose powder in 01 Translucide


And the foundation I sometimes use to even out my cheeks -- Lanome Teint Miracle in PO 03, courtesy of my mum <3

Need to be more adventurous with make while I'm still below 21 years old haha.

okay thats all, 6 hours left to school, sigh!
Bye loves xx

Sunplay SPF130 PA+++ Face & Body

Received my travel-sized SPF 130 PA+++ Sunplay today! It's SO important to have +++ behind cuz the more +'s there are, the higher the UVA protection. If I'm not wrong, UVA rays are the root cause of premature aging and wrinkles due to sun exposure. UVB is the one that makes people turn brown haha. Pics!



Can't wait to try this out :D
