Dupe Alert: NARS Blush & Bronzer Duo vs. ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder.

Its a leap year!! And its only happens once every 4 years. That's the reason why I should post this highly requested dupe alert from my readers. =p

Speaking of dupe alert, there's so much comparison of my favorite brand NARS out there. NARS is one of the top notch cosmetic brand that actually drugged most of the girls out there. (Say yesss.... =) ) If you couldn't get your pocket to afford NARS, will ELF be a better choice for you?

So today, we'll have an argument with my lovely NARS Blush & Bronzer Duo and the dupe alternative ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder.


NARS Blush & Bronzer Duo, a makeup masterpiece and my all-time-favorite product. Who would come with an ideal of having a blusher and bronzer together?? Initially this US$40 masterpiece is too far from cheap. So the ideal of blusher and bronzer came in from a drugstore product - ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder to rescue our pocket.

Review: ELF Studio Cream Eyeshadow in Eggplant

ELF (Eyes Lips Face) is one of my favorite budget- cosmetic products. Their Studio Line products has been a hype in the blogging world. I never really into eyeshadow products, but I bought this ELF Studio Cream Eyeshadow quite long ago after reading lots of raves online. 

They says: 
" Line, shade and contour your eyes with this ultra pigmented and creaseless cream shadow. Easy to blend for layering and building color. The silky smooth and smudge-proof formula provides long lasting color for a beautiful look all day. "

Vanity Trove: Beautiful Surpises to Malaysia!!

Finally, beauty box subscription arrived in Malaysia!!! Beauty boxes have been one of the latest trends around in the blog-sphere.  We have brands like Birchbox (US), Glossybox (UK), Glamabox (HK), Fukubukuro (Japan), Bellabox and now Vanity Trove hit Malaysia!! =)) Excited ain't you??
How beauty box subscription works? Every month, you need to pay a certain subscription fee amount for this box which contained beauty samples and products selected for you. After so, you only have to wait for them to deliver this beautiful surprises to your doorsteps. Ladies who love surprises will definitely love it!!! You won't have a single ideas of what's inside the parcel until you open it up. Isn't it sounds so fun?? 

Honestly, I really like how they packed their boxes. The white large box is sturdy and very thick in quality. I love how we have to pull-out the items in like a drawer. And then, you'll see things wrapped nicely under the beautiful pink tissue-paper.

And so, they even inserted a beautiful small note from the editor team telling you about the box and products in!! The theme was 'A New Beginning, A New You'. It's definitely a way to Welcome 2012 and welcome Vanity Trove to Malaysia! Besides that, they included a list of the products with description so you won't be so blur on what and how to use the product inside the box. =)

And here's what we got for the January's Vanity Trove!!
(No wonder the box are quite a weight)
And here you got a few samples of beauty products. Some of them is very new to me!! Definitely an exciting box for those who wanna try them on but afraid to pay for the full products in case it doesn't work. =D =D

Review & Swatches: Urban Decay Naked 2 palette!!

FINALLY!! The Urban Decay Naked 2 palette is on my hands!! I knew there's too many reviews and swatches around, but I will still do it to share with you girls =P (You can feel how excited I am?) The hype of the first Naked Palette from Urban Decay was a successful one. So when Urban Decay introduced Naked 2 (USD50), I wasn't too surprised. But what surprise me was the name. Naked 2?? You bet!

The new Naked 2 palette comes in a sturdy metal packaging which includes 12 gorgeous neutral eyeshadows with a double-ended brush and a mini lip gloss. 

This palette were sold at US$50. Do you think it's worth for the price tag? Let's see with 12 full size eyeshadow worth $204, $24 worth of brush, $6 worth of lip gloss, it come up with a total $234. Definitely yes just like the previous palette.

When I first got this, I am in love with the sturdy metal packaging. The wording Naked 2 is so much better than my original Naked palette. That's because my original Naked palette wording started to fade off after it aggressively travel along with me. Other than that, I do not have any issues with Naked 1 palette.

Sneakpeek: Revlon Lip Butters hit the town!!

The title show it out. We've been reading lots of raves about these tinted lip balms on the blogging world. And finally, we're getting it here either it is in Malaysia or Singapore (yes! Both countries have them now!) Excited ain't cha? I've even showcase it on my Facebook Page. (Do check it out for more updates)


Originally in US there were 24 different colors from this range but here, we're only getting 8 colors. Not too bad I shall say, and I got myself two colors as well. =) Revlon Lip Butters are now in Watsons, Guardian and even Sasa.
This is the Revlon Lip Butter stand I saw in Watsons at my place. =)) I was soooo excited and did swatches of all the color to determine which is the best I should get.

So here's the swatches for you:
(Please excuse me for the pic quality as I took this with my phone)
Based on the swatches, have you decided which color to pick up?? I bought Peach Parfait and Strawberry Shortcake.

Eventually, I went back to Watsons today and buy something and was told my the Revlon SA that Peach Parfait is almost OOS!! (But...It was out less than a week??) It was the best selling color there. o_O

Amazing isn't it? Creamy, smooth, pigmented and best affordable. What can you expect? It's priced at S$15.90 and RM24.90 each. Honestly, Malaysia price is even lower than US Dollar after convertion of exchange rates. That's incredible good price. So, hunt them down at your nearest stores now and let me know what you get. I'll do a full review later on.

Have a great weekend!!
