A makeup expert I am not but you know that. I try, maybe. There are no perfect wings to my eyeliner nor cheekbones perfectly highlighted. I can’t contour to save my life. Fact is, the word to depict my makeup rituals would be messy. But when I suggested to Dahlia Nadirah that I want to experiment and blog about her brand, she said yes. So I made some coffee and poured the entire content of the package onto my work desk. I sat with my bare eyes and matching without foundation face to play with some products. And so, here are my novice thoughts on new lip colours, a BB cream and a mascara.
SERI BB CUSHION (NATURAL)
I am no expert in foundation. I would usually go medium coverage or totally barefaced. And with my recent acquisition of freckles that I quite like, I wanted to go lighter and barely there. This BB cushion is perfect and it is exactly what I’m looking for. It oxidizes really fast and it evens out my skin tone. It smells lovely too, like spring. I’ve actually added this to my makeup bag because I like it so much.
THE GINCU LIP CREAM
I have heard so much about this lip cream. I have seen them on celebrities, beauty bloggers / YouTubers, my girlfriends and girls I follow on Instagram and now I know why. They are amazing. Now, I own a fair amount of lip creams and they are from brands both expensive and affordable and let me tell you, most of them suck! They are either too drying or the colour doesn’t stay. So.Lek offers up barely there, soft-matte and most importantly, long-lasting lip creams. I got the whole collection of Tari Gang – a nude, earthy, brownish tone series from the brand.
This is definitely my favourite product from the pile. If you know me, mascara is a staple in my beauty rota. I am not blessed with long, beautiful lashes. I have terribly stubby eyelashes so I prefer the more powerful mascaras. So let me introduce you Lentik – an amazing mascara from So.Lek. This mascara didn’t clump at all, yet lace my lashes with incredible volume, which open up my already ginormous eyes.
