It’s a shimmery lavender pink and a little goes a long way since it has great amount of fine glitters in it. Once it is blended the pink shade goes on naturally according to the skin tone.

MAC Extra Dimension Eye Shadows & Swatches

This collection was launched in the US early 2012, I’m not sure when exactly they did for Malaysia but I reckon it should be approximately that period of time. I managed to grab these during the Suria Meriang Staff Sales 2013 and you can check there what I have hauled too. The sales was exciting and I’m already looking forward for next year’s!

MAC Cosmetics In Extra Dimension Eye Shadow 2

Description: Extra Dimension is a liquid-powder eye shadow with prismatic reflections in ten shimmering tints with an impact that ranges from sheer crystallized light to a highly polished metallic effect and lasts up to six hours.

I grabbed this set of four for MYR 100.00 and each eye shadow weighs at 2grams/0.07oz. Initially this was retailed for MYR85.00 each and the manufacturing date was October 2011, I think its still good looking at the condition and its not expired yet. I just wanted to show close up of each eye shadow and swatches.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain & Swatches

Revlon Malaysia revealed in their Facebook yesterday that Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain Range will be hitting the stores next month. I have shared the news in my Facebook and one of my subscribers mentioned that it’s already available at Watsons. Thanks for the heads up! I quickly dropped by Watsons on my way back from work to spy on the shades available.

I came to know about Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain from Judy’s first impression on it. This lip stain does remind me of the Revlon Lip Butter which was buttery  moisturizing for my lips.

It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood. – Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

  • Lightweight Lipstain + Moisturizing Balm
  • 100% of women who tried it felt their lips were instantly moisturized with a soft stain of color
  • Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required

There are 12 shades available in the US and for Malaysia, there are 8 shades available.

  • Precious – Nude with pink undertone shade
  • Honey – Mauve shade
  • Lovesick –  Magenta, pink with purple undertone shade
  • Cherish – Baby pink shade
  • Sweetheart – Deep pink, pink with red undertone shade
  • Adore – Brown with red undertone shade
  • Rendezvous – Tangerine shade
  • Romantic – Oxblood shade

The shade lovesick and Sweetheart is very similar but can be differentiated by the undertones and it’s glossy finish. Its a balm stain and the shade is buildable. Looking at the shades available the color selections are pretty good.

This balm stain retails in the US for USD8.99 and price varies from sales offered from local drugstores. In Malaysia, it retails for MYR33.00 (slightly priced higher than the US) and currently, Watsons are selling it for MYR32.80 and Guardian are selling it for MYR29.61. I bought Honey and Sweetheart to try it out!

LUNASOL Sheer Glossy Eyes in Nuance Gray & Swatches

‘A limited-edition single-color eye shadow that bestows eyelid with clear colors and an extremely translucent and lustrous look. Moist gel powder lightly spreads and meltingly blends with the skin. Contains beauty essence ingredients that provide moisture to the eyelids while creating eyes filled with an exceeding pure luster’ – LUNASOL

The shade that I have here is in Nuance Gray, one of the four shades available for  the single eye shadow range in LUNASOL Autumn 2012 Makeup Collection. It comes with a tiny tray from its box which is so adorable and to protect the eye shadow to knock around the box edges.

The dome-shaped eye shadow comes in a tiny jar , isn’t any ordinary gray eye shadow. It seems like a baked eye shadow and although its a moist gel eye shadow, it feels like ordinary eye shadows but not chalky.  The eye shadow is soft yet firm when I feel it with my fingers.

The camera just  didn’t catch the exact shade, this do no justice! Its actually a very beautiful gray with fine pink glitters and a tad bit of fine silver glitters. The eye shadow is buildable, you can go sheer to medium coverage. This range comes with another three shades which is Shiny Gold, Soft Brown and Peach Beige. This range will be available next month and like their Facebook below to be updated their latest news!!!

Price: MYR90.00
