Hello minna-san!

It has been 10 years SILKYGIRL have stayed together with us in the cosmetic industry since it was first launched on 2005 by the Alliance Cosmetic Group. The brand's personality is fun, young, colorful and exudes confidence. Since the day of this brand was established, they aimed to deliver the latest color trend and high quality specifications of the products which cater the girls' stylish impulses and needs. Spite of the brand is colorful, fun, trendy and high in quality, the prices of their products is still affordable which makes every girls more than happy to own them!

The brand now is marketed at over 5,000 cosmetics counters in Malaysia including abroad in Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia and Jakarta. SILKYGIRL products can easily be found in all major pharmacies, personal care stores, departmental stores and hypermarkets. Their products consist of makeup, fragrance, hair color and nail care.


I was extremely excited when these babes came in the mail, thank youuuuuu SILKYGIRLand happy 10th Anniversary, now keep on growing!

In conjunction of their 10th anniversary, they've released a special limited edition of their best-seller products, both the Perfect Stay 20HR Eyeliner and Moisture Rich Lipcolor presented in chick chrome casings to match the professional identity of being the top-selling products and to commemorate their 10th anniversary. The best-selling Perfect Stay 20HR Eyeliner was actually comes in 2 shades, blackest black and dark brown. However the Limited Edition version of this eyeliner only comes in blackest black shade alone. The same goes to the Moisture Rich Lipcolor which actually comes in 18 shades in total (check [HERE] for the shades) but for the Limited Edition one they specially have launched a new 5 shades of 01, 02, 03, 04 & 05.



 From left: 01, 02, 04


Let's start with the lipcolor first. Here I have the shade of 01, 02 & 04 with me. I really love the lightweight and creamy texture of this lipstick, it glides smoothly on application while providing a full coverage and gives a lustrous finish. I think it can be more exciting if it was formulated with a nice scent. Well it is not that I'm saying they have an unpleasant scent or what, they just smells perfectly normal just like a lipstick to me. Just that it could be nicer if they are a little bit scented because I just simply enjoy it when the makeups and products that I'm using to have some pleasant and fascinating scents heheanyway I do really love these babes especially the 01 shade! The red berries-like shade is just soooo gorgeous!



I have a lot of lipsticks with the quite similar shade to 02 & 04, so I don't think I'm curious and excited that much for the shades anymore. Nonetheless they're still sweet! My friends told me they love the shade 02 & 04 on me so much because the colors are soft and vivid, though I'm like more attached to the 01 bold shade hehe. SILKYGIRL was the first makeup brand I've ever owned at my 13 age, I bought their lipstick back then as my first ever makeup and since then...I started to collect more makeups from them and from the other brands too! This LE Moisture Rich Lipcolor is priced at RM22.90.

01 : Red berries shade
02 : Pink peach shade
04 : Salmon pink shade


 The packaging for this LE eyeliner is indeed different than the usual one, this one is more chic, edgy and urban-like.

 This is an automatic eyeliner so it can be twisted upward.

I like the creamy formula of this eyeliner, it glides smoothly and gives an intense black color.

I'm actually an avid user of liquid liner lol. I don't collect many gel and automatic pencil liner since I'm a little bit awkward in using them, they always get smudged easily and it's gonna be a bit messy if you can't wear them properly. I tested this eyeliner out by wearing them in the morning on a busy day, and go out with a heavy activities on to see how much will it get smudged if we're sweating. Surprisingly it lasted all day long with only 5% of budging and transfer. Thanks to its unique technology, the combination of volatile silicones and siliconic resin made this eyeliner to have a long-lasting properties as it adheres to the eyelid up to 20 hours and it is transfer resistant.

That's pretty good rite...to me as long as it stays just fine on me, a minimal budging is still considered as ok because we do sweating everyday, and it is perfectly normal for a makeup wearers to have their makeup wears off a little bit by the end of the day. Along with that I really love the new casing this eyeliner have. As always, SILKYGIRL is exciting! The price of this LE Perfect Stay 20HR Eyeliner is RM15.90.


Mind not my sleepy eyes on left hahaTrust me, most of the pencil eyeliners I've tried did't really delivered the intense jet black color that we girls always dreamed of but this one did!

How do you like my natural Japanese eye makeup by using this eyeliner? hehe

P/S- I always used the double eyelid tape before so my eyes got bigger even when I'm not using them on lol.  



Alongside with the lipcolors and eyeliner, I also received their hot Big Eye Collagen Waterproof Mascara and the fruity scented Pure Fresh All-In-One Gel Makeup Remover! So here's the review about them as well since I've never tried them before.



I looove the Big Eye Collagen Mascara! not only that it was designed with a short silicone bristles which is efficient is reaching each lashes comfortably, but it's also heavy duty and super waterproof!! I tested it out by putting the mascara on and soaked my face into a bowl of water and I noticed none of the fall out were coming off! (now I can wear this to the swimming pool I guess? hehe)


My ugly straight lashes was curled a little bit after using the mascara. I only used the mascara alone without the assistance of my Panasonic heated eyelash curler and my lashes still looks naturally curled.

Based on lab test data after multiple applications, this smudge-proof mascara lengthen lashes up to 80% longer with an added 20% curl. It is enriched with key ingredients to ensure that each individual lash is coated to plump up lashes too. The price is RM22.90.



And for the makeup remover, goshh I can't stop from keep sniffing this gel makeup remover! *hamster nose* It smells so fruity and fresh! It's oil-free and 100% soap-free and it works very gentle on any skin type. Anyhow I think the formula is too sleek that it doesn't really break down the stubborn makeup like how it says?Or probably because it is oil-free (oil do helps a lot in makeup removing just so you know). It is formulated with aloe Vera, Vitamin B5 and Hydrolyzed Soy Protein to treat and softens the skin. Besides, PH 5.5 level restores the skin balance as well. This is not my first time trying out a gel makeup remover. I've tried Bifesta before and I think Bifesta is wayy more better in removing the makeup off.


I moistened the facial cotton pad with the gel and rubbed back and forth to remove the makeup. You can do this for the light eye & lip makeup.

Thing I like about it is the sweet scent and I do think it works just fine to remove the light eye & lip makeup but it's still far from being effective enough to remove the full face heavy makeup. You can use it on the face if you want but seriously you will need to clean the makeup again using the other makeup remover before you can double cleanse your face with foam cleanser. Regarding this reason I won't suggest it to anyone because there are still a lot of good gel makeup remover from the other brands out there that can do better than this. The price is around RM15.90.


Talk to you guys again on my next post!

Nyaahaiyo! ("Meow-ning"!)

Since the day I tried the sample, Kate Powderless Liquid Foundation has been one of my "crush"! What I really love about it is the technology and its formula, this is seriously like a magic...the foundation turns powdery within 15-20 seconds! Well it doesn't really turns into like 100% powder like how you imagine the loose powder is, but think of the result of your face after you set them on with a powder. yeah...that perfect MATTE look is yours!



The trick is, dot the foundation on cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and quickly dab it on (if you don't be quick it will looks slapped on later)...afterwards even it out with a face brush. After 15-20 seconds of applying you will notice that your face will look as if you already set them on with a powder, do swipe your face once more to remove any excess. And that's it for a quick makeup application. By using this foundation I get to skip the powder part and it's so much convenient like hitting two birds with one stone, especially if I am running late. Normally after using the foundation I will spray some face mist to set the makeup on...you can do that too and the makeup will look just perfect and flawless.

The foundation looks natural on skin too...I have mine in shade OC-C which suits my warm yellowish skin tone. There are 5 shades in total, OC-B, OC-C, OC-D, BE-C, and BR-C. You can refer the shades [HERE]



Natural light


With flash

The packaging is made from a plastic and it comes with a pump presser too. Hygiene checked!I like its round bottom too! This might be travel friendly as well since the size is cute, light and it won't break if it fall. It is quick to be applied and needs no powder. Too much to love for a bottle of foundation. This is why IJapanese makeup more! Now this foundation is one of my HG!

The staying power is up to 8 hours long or more depending on your activities of the day. I'm not the person who does a lot of sweaty activities when I know I have a makeup on so it stayed more than 8 hours long on my face. Of course it did wears off a little after 8 hours but not completely and it's still looks just fine on me. Just a little touch up is enough if you're a neat freak like me anyway

I bought this like 7 months back from Watson Malaysia and the price was RM78.90 (if I remember correctly). Check them out at Watson store and you'll find them.

Kanpeki...gu~no ne ♪ (LOL that's a song)

Few months back I stopped using one of my HG skin care product, B.liv Off With Those Heads Sebum Gel. You can call that as a training to not be so depending on the product (plus the price is kinda pricey and I used it everyday so it ran out pretty fast) Alas...I don't think it's worked because after discontinuing my blackheads and whiteheads became uncontrollable and hit me like a disaster haha. I always have the kinda hard blackheads type which is hard to be extracted out and if I try to do so it will cause a redness and scarring to my skin.

It drove me crazy! I hate it whenever I touch my skin all I can feel is these tiny little bumps of blackheads and whiteheads all over and it is sooo annoying! (especially around forehead where I have them most)...kinda feel to shave the skin flat and smooth right away sobs T____T

I can confidently say that this is the only product I've used so far that can 100% help me combat this blackhead + whiteheads problem. I've tried Laneige Blackhead Melting Gel but unfortunately it was not as effective as this one. Forget about those pore strips too... >A< it doesn't even 1% help me with the problem. I've used the Sebum Gel since I was 17 and can't believe that I'm still using it now...conclusion: I can't live without it!




I recently bought this B.liv Pores Be Clean pack that comes with Off With Those Heads Sebum Gel, Deep Impact Deep Pores massage & Cleansing Emulsion and 2pcs of Absolute Matte Mask Sheet. This is a pretty worthwhile deal for 3 items together. If you buy the Off With Those Heads alone it will cost you RM145 for 30ml inclusive of GST. That makes a lot of difference rite...this pack only cost me RM165.90 and it came with 30ml OWTH, 50ml Deep Impact (worth RM65) and 2 pcs of Absolute Matte mask (roughly worth RM8/pcs since it is RM52 per box of 7pcs) That's a hella spectacular deal and save a lot of my penny! I jumped in happiness too once I opened the parcel because they even gave me a lot of free samples, weee! (Thank youuu B.liv!)...seriously never felt this happy before because B.liv is really is my no.1 fave skin care brand!


Off With Those Heads Sebum Gel



Contains aloe vera gel to soothe the irritation, tea tree oil to control the oil secretions, witch hazel extract and papermint oil as a main ingredients. Functioning to clear blackheads and whiteheads, this sebum gel works by removing them without violence or pain and stops them from appearing ever again (yeah they did what they promised for!). The gel softens the clogging blocking your pores. Its essence ingredients keep oil secretions under control and skin irritation will never again rule! The translucent gel doesn't sting on skin but for the first few usage you might feel the extra cool minty sensation because your skin is still not used to it and some might find it uncomfortable...but for me I love the refreshing cool sensation on my skin!!

The first time you use the sebum gel it might takes you 2 weeks or more to soften the gunks before you can extract them out. Blackheads and whiteheads is a natural thing for us human...you can't make them totally disappear but at least you can control them. Softens the gunks is already more than better, at least it won't give you too much hassle and make it easier to be removed without irritation and pain.

Usage:

  1. Pump 2-3 pea-sized drops onto your palm.
  2. Apply on T-Zone areas, or areas with black and whiteheads.

Deep Impact Deep Pores Massage & Cleansing Emulsion



Made from witch hazel extract, tea tree oil and aloe vera extract as a main ingredients. Deep Impact delves deep to expel imperfections to reveal the true beauty of your skin, as it cleanses and massages your face to porcelain perfection. It also gently but effectively exfoliates and clarifies your skin. The consistency is just like a mud mask (except the color is white) and it has a cooling and minty sensation on skin. The beads is yellow in color and it will slowly dissolved as you keep massaging. After using Deep Impact my skin feels so fresh, clean and smooth. Indeed a deep impact!

Usage:
Apply a thin layer of deep impact to damp skin, gently massage in an upward and outward circular motion until the beads fully dissolved, then rinse well.


Absolute Matte Clarifying Mask With Active Charcoal Mask Sheet


Booh! I'm "orang minyak" now haha jk
Somehow the mask sheet is too big for my face so I folded area that exceed my face (can't complain much because I have a small face)


After 15 minutes of mask session. You can tell that my skin looks matte and nice rite?
Sukiiiii(oh excuse for the dark circle around my eyes anyway...LOL)

Made from aloe vera extract, tea tree oil, witch hazel extract, papermint extract, german iris root extract, chamomile flower extract, vit A, willow bark extract, chinese foxglove root extract, amur cork bark extract, baikall scullcap root extract, white cedar leaf extract, heartleaf extract and etc.

Absolute matte helps combat excess sebum and control surface shine while purifying and refreshing your complexion (it is feels cool and refreshing on skin). Unlike any other, it uses active charcoal mask sheet that acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore cloggers so you can experience hours & hours of TLC (Tender Loving Care) your skin deserves. I never used a great mask like this one, I MEAN IT...normally if you use any mask your skin tends to look glowy afterwards. Some people might not really like that greasy feeling and glowy looking skin after using a mask sheet (especially if you're a super oily type) but the special and unfamiliar thing that this mask do is it gives you a matte finish and your pores and skin texture look so much more refined and smooth. How cool is that?

Usage:
Leave the mask and chill for 15 minutes. Gently massage the remaining essence for 30 seconds, leave it for another 30 seconds for complete absorption.

The samples that were included together are 1 mini tube of OWTH (3ml) and Squeaky Clean Beads Cleansing Gel (5ml), 3 mini packs of Glow And Shine Skin Smoothening Mask (2.5ml) and 1pcs of Absolute Matte Mask (full size).

Including the Pores Be Clean Pack, the samples are all considered as a pore care range from B.liv.
I realized about one thing that all of these products have in common...which is the scent and the sensation...they all smells minty (because all of them contain papermint oil) and they feels so refreshing and cool on skin. Oh super duper loooove!!


Glow And Shine Skin Smoothening Mask (RM75 in 50ml)


Compared to Deep Impact, Glow And Shine have the white beads which is more tinier and this helps a lot in exfoliation.

I really love the Glow And Shine mask...it smells the best...it has this sweet kinda scent with a minty hint (reminds me some sort of candies) I can't stop from sniffing the product over and over again, it got me so addicted LOL

This need to be used after you cleanse your face. Apply a thick layer of the mask over your face and leave for about 5-10 mins avoiding the lip and eye area (it will dry after 5-10 minutes). Next, wet your face and massage gently with circular motions, then rinse off with water. After using the mask you can feel that your skin is super smooth and the pores is much more refined. I like how dewy and clean my skin looks like too! Definitely a 9/10!


Squeaky Clean Beads Cleansing Gel (RM75 in 130ml)


There're millions of translucent micro-beads in the cleansing gel but they hardly can be seen on camera. Notice the uneven texture of the gel that I rubbed on the back of my hand in the right photo? then that's actually the micro-beads.

I never tried the Squeaky Clean Beads Cleansing Gel before and the first time I try the sample I was soo surprised! The beads cleansing gel doesn't even turns into a bubbles no matter how much you lather it with water but still, it cleanses DAMN GOOD AND SUPER CLEAN compared to the foam cleanser, it removes all of the impurities away. It's very gentle, not abrasive and doesn't give a taut feel AT ALL! My complexion is much more radiant after cleansing it with the gel. The translucent light green gel will turns into a whitish milky color once you lather it with water and massage it around, you hardly can see that there're a beads in the gel because they're extremely tiny but as you massage the gel on you can definitely feel it.

Though these babes are listed in a pore care range, it works surprisingly good and gentle even on the dry skin type...it does not drip the moisture away. In fact it works by clearing the pores, keeps the skin smooth and clean while maintaining the skin pH and moisture. B.liv products are made in Singapore and Taiwan for your kind info.

You name it...how many products you know out there that delivers what exactly they promised for? So far I can honestly tell like 5/10..and those 5 are from the high end brands. The others is seriously just a bullshits, their ads as well...some of them maybe works a little bit but not forever...if you use it in the long term they might not works anymore. I can say this because I've tried a lot and most of them is just the same. But for B.liv...I stick to them since I was 17 and I'm still using them today and they still works wonder on my skin! I think I will have a "contract" with them for long years ahead because they never fails me, ever!

Oh hi my kawaii peepers!

Think it's been long I did't try any new sheet mask. Idk why but probably it was because I'm now rarely go outside even for some shopping. Online shopping sure has grew me into a total online shopaholic LOL. Oh shoot...why does it sounds like I've turned into a NEET?? haha jk

I've never tried any mask sheet from Tony Moly because I've got my fave one and I'm a kind of person which once I have discovered what's good and suit my skin I rarely go and try out a new one and instead of thinking to try another new masks I've been using just the one I normally use. For now I'm always using the gel mask from Annie's way (and they're always the best!) and the Kracie Kanebo one. So far I've tried the one from Neutrogena, Nature Republic, The Face Shop and Etude House (Oh I love etude house yogurt/honey pack so much!) and etc.




Let's see what I might say about this one. Alright it has a milky scent (not in the food-way kind of smell anyway)...well of course it does because it made from the goat milk...Simply put, it has just a very nice light milky scent. From my experience and observation, yogurt and goat's milk is very gentle ingredients for any type of skin. It tends to give a smooth, supple and hydrated finish too after you used them. Of course this one is no exception.


Mask on..LOL



This is how my skin looks like after the mask session (excuse me for the horrible dark circle around my eyes..I don't sleep much LOL). I like the mask because of its scent. I felt really good after using the mask, I have a dry skin and it did boosted up the moisture within 15-20mins...well I can't really tell how it can improve your skin if you use it regularly in the long term because I just used it for the first time (but no one will use it regularly because who want to spend like RM15 per sheet constantly?) Most of the Korean skin care products is really gentle because it was formulated for the Asian skin. I tried most of the Korean skin care products and so far it works just fine on me. So yeah...I like the mask and I think if you have an important occasion which you do not have much time to pamper your skin at spa or somewhere...mask sheet is a quicker alternative to boost up the skin.

The only cons I found is the sheet is wayy to large for my face. I have to fold the area which exceed my face. I have a small face features and the sad truth is I never found a mask sheet that can perfectly fit my face so far. Well it is not really a big deal for me tho but it can be good if I found the one that can fit my face. The mask sheet is around RM15/pcs.




See you guys on my next post!
