Smooth as silk -> Revlon’s Luscious Lashliner

If you are familiar with Thai Airways, “Smooth as silk” is the tagline of this airline.

But we are not going to talk about airlines here. Maybe some other times.

I have here super smooth eyeliners from Revlon. Currently there are only 3 colours available in Boots Thailand. Here’s how it looks like and the swatches that follow.

Top to bottom:
004 Emerald
003 Graphite
001 Onyx

Top to Bottom:
Emerald (green with gold glitter)
Graphite (grey with silver glitter)
Onyx (matte black)

The texture is super creamy. You will have to be careful not putting too much pressure while applying because a chunk will break off. Light pressure is good enough for smooth application.

I love all 3 of them. If the tip is not sharp anymore and you are not able to sharpen it (which usually happens to me) then you can use a flat eyeliner brush to swipe the colour from the eyeliner pencil tip and apply onto lids. All very pretty colours.

I wore the Emerald liner the other day I had a dark green top on. And I used a L’Oreal Automatic Slim Liner to tightline upper lash. Maybe it was unnecessary but I felt “incomplete” without a black liner. HA HA HA! The eyeliner stayed all day (I also used primer under it because I have oily lids) and the glitter is as pretty as ever.

For the colour Graphite, you can wear on its own or smudge it all over lids to create a base for other eyeshadow colours. Using grey as a base softens the smoky eye look. If you are going for more dramatic smoky eyes, just smudge the Onyx on lids and top with an eyeshadow of your choice.

Because the Lashliner is so soft, it sort of melts on your skin (really. Try it and thou shalt see), they need to be sharpened more often than other eyeliner pencils. This is not really a bad point as I like to organise and keep my makeup ready for use when the children have gone to bed. It’s mind calming and let me look forward to the next day.

The other colour which is not yet available here is the dark brown called Espresso. I wish Revlon will launch more colour selections in the future as the Lashliners are such creamy formula and pretty shades. I will definitely be getting all of them! 🙂

Have you tried the Revlon Lashliner yet? 🙂

Loving the Revlon Cherry Tart Lip Butter! <3

Diamond is a girl’s best friend. Well then, lipstick is a girl’s best pal. 🙂 haha

I have been experimenting with different lipstick shades this year. I am not quite a lipstick person before as I often forget to swipe on some colours on my lips after making up the rest of the face. It is only until recently I stumbled upon Paris B @ mywomenstuff that I have started loving the lipstick again!

Since this is an experiment on myself, I went a bit crazy with pharmacy brands. If I decided I didn’t like it, the lipsticks wouldn’t burn a hole in my purse. To start off, I had the lip butter from Revlon. I have never EVER thought of or been introduced to sheer lipstick colour and once I tried, I was instantly in love!

As mentioned above, I don’t usually wear lipstick. But the Lip Butter allows me to wear one everyday. The pretty sparkles make my lips more interesting. When I kiss my kids (and mind you, I do kiss them all the time) the sparkles are slightly transferred to their faces. hehehe

Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart 070

The Cherry Tart is a rather strong colour. Looks really red in the tube but once applied, it’s a very pretty reddish pink, or pinkish red whichever way you prefer. 🙂

Try it, and you will love it!

Makeup Forever Exiting Thailand!!

I have been wanting to try blogging for awhile now. It just happen today that I was in shock and sad to learn that MUFE is exiting Thailand… 😦

You see, after watching Gossmakeupartist’s tips in YouTube, I went to check if they stock the airbrush thinner. The counter’s display looked like there’s nothing much left. At first I thought they are renovating the counter but the guy told me that this brand is exiting… WHAT?? WHY? I guess from now on I will have to get MUFE stuff from elsewhere and pay the extra delivery charge then… sob sob…

Anyway, not with all bad news, since it was exiting, the things left are on sale: 20% and 40% depending on what product. So I got myself a few things to balance my shock… heeeheeeheee

Are you a MUFE fans?
