Review: Vassen Sandy Grey Circle Lens + Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette

Hi everyone!

My Bobbi Brown giveaway has ended!
Thanks for EVERYONE who entered this giveaway sponsored by Mizspa.com !
The winner has been announced on my twitter a few days ago!
Congratulations to.... (drumrolls...)

VODKA & LATTE!

Congratulations once again to you! :) Hope you enjoy and love this beautiful palette!

Okay, today I'm going to review a new eyebrow pencil I just bought (impulsively) even though I just got MAC Lingering.. Maybe because it has something to do with not being satisfied enough with it! I am also going to review these new babies I just got from Pinkyparadise.com  ! So let's review them shall we?

Vassen Sandy Grey Circle Lenses



I have been wearing a lot of brown lenses lately and I wanted some change! So I bought these grey lenses and I thought the halo effect is quite cool! The lenses itself is a yearly circle lens with 14.5 mm in diameter - which is an okay size! I personally don't like humongous lenses... They freak me out. So these are okay if not a tad big for me. Am I weird? Lol.

Okay so comfort wise... They're quite dry when I first got them but after a few wears they're okay now!
I'm quite happy with it.. But it's the type of lenses that look weird if you don't put makeup on... You look like an alien. It's quite bright. It doesn't look natural at all - which is not a bad thing... I guess. It will look good with smoky (HEAVY) eyes!

I personally won't purchase these again, maybe I'll try a more subtle grey in the future!

Let's see!

Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette

I think I'm addicted to brow products... I know I keep saying this but it's true!
I LOVE THIS BABY! Sure it's expensive ($44 a pop at Mecca Cosmetica) but it makes creating the perfect brow EASY PEASY. The tip is angled and it's waxed based - so it keeps your hairs in place.
The colour is perfect - taupe! So it's not too red.

HOLY GRAIL MATERIAL. GET IT.

MAC Archie 'Cream Soda' Blush + MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Lingering Review and Swatches!

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to review these two goodies that I just picked up from MAC a couple days ago!
Oh before that - how are you feeling the new layout? Clean and simple hey? I'm happy with it (currently) right now and I might change the banner later hehe. It still looks a bit rough right now!



Okay back to my review..

I went to MYER Pitt St to meet my friend, at first I wanted to try bareMinerals new foundation but I got sidetracked and went to MAC counter instead ._. I haven't seen the Archie collection in person and GOSH THEY LOOK ADORABLE. It's white casing which is a nice difference from the normal black matte MAC packaging! I wanted to buy the beauty powders but I wasn't really sure about buying it then, so I bought one thing that caught my eye!

MAC Archie Collection 'Cream Soda' Blush


A peach blush! I LOVE PEACH BLUSHES! I love MAC Peaches and this is a softer take with a hint of soft pink and very very slight shimmer. 

The texture and the colour payoff - It's very soft and quite pigmented - I was surprised! I thought it's going to be really faint. But it's very buildable and perfect for an everyday blush! Maybe it will look better on fair skin than darker skin though - it wont show up as nice!

Overall I'm happy I picked up this product. I can see myself using this blush for work everyday :) And dont forget the cute packaging! Im sucker for cute packaging! 

I also picked up another thing that has been raved over and over again :

MAC Lingering Eyebrow Pencil


I thought this is going to be my cheaper substitute for my favourite eyebrow product - Kevyn Aucoin Eyebrow Pencil but IT IS NOT. Honestly it doesn't compare to it at all. It's sticky and I dont like it.. I rather use powder with angled brush.. But I can still use it. I might need to pick up another Kevyn Aucoin eyebrow pencil since it's the bomb.. But this will make do for now :\  I wouldn't repurchase this.

Okay so this is me wearing both products - the blush and the pencil.



Well I hope you enjoyed the review and talk to you soon girls!
