Face Sketching | Brown Smoky with a Twist




I took my inspiration from a random face chart I found online.  (Please advise the source if you know.)  I had much fun doing this look, with one big exception - I hated the liquid eyeliner.  It was near the end of its life, and the ink was sparse, bristles were strayed (like split-ends).

Two Burberry single eyeshadows were used in this look on purpose.  I love their eyeshadows!!!!  These two matte browns, No.06 Almond, and No.23 Dark Sable are gorgeous.


Nonetheless, hope you enjoy this post.

Inventory #21 | Bourjois (Warning: Long Post)


I love Bourjois for four major reasons:

1.  Price.  It is not too expensive compared to normal pharmacy brands.  Everything is relatively reasonably priced, even in the counters/booths here in Hong Kong.
2.  Quality.  Some say Chanel and Bourjois share some factories and formulas.  I don't use nor own many Chanel make up, so I can't tell.  In my experience, Bourjois makes very decent products.
3.  Parisian/French elegance.  From the colour and texture, to the packaging and promotional images, Bourjois screams an European romance that is not easily found elsewhere.
4.  Bourjois owns Chanel.  

READ THIS:

Bourjois is a French cosmetics brand founded in 1863 by Monsieur Alexandre Napoleon Bourjois, with the invention of the first powder blush, Pastel Joues.  
In 1924 Coco Chanel approached Pierre Wertheimer, the then owner of Bourjois, to help a her create Parfums Chanel. A deal was struck where Chanel would recieve 10% of the profits, and Bourjois 90%. Parfums Chanel was a big success - Coco had practically given away the most lucrative side of her business. A decision she would come to regret.
Nowadays, Bourjois and the Wertheimer familly own and control all of the Chanel business.

------------------------------

Similar to the previous Burberry Beauty post - link, this article/post is divided into parts.

Part 1 - Birthday Acquisition
Part 2 - Past Product Review (of items I have tried but no longer own)
Part 3 - My Current Bourjois Collection
Part 4 - News
Part 5 - Wist List

Part 1 - Birthday Aquisition






Last month was my birthday, and I went over to the counter to obtain my birthday gift.  It is a sample of the Flower Perfection Foundation in No52 Vanilla.  *Hey, Burberry gave me a mini lipstick and you gave me a sample sachet?  It's disappointing...*

I browsed around and managed to spot a few new items I wanted to try for a while, including the Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in No51 Light Vanilla and the Loose Powder in No01 Peach.  I purchased a new tube of my favourite skin care Bourjois ever made (and is still available) - the Foaming Cleansing Cream - it smells divine and hydrates while removes make up in the wash - a-mazing.  Then I went a little excited and picked up three new 1 Seconde Silicon Gel Texture Nail Enamel - #20 Perle Illusion (silver), #03 Beige Distinction (nude) and #18 Or Hi-Tech (gold).  So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Enamel has some new released colours, and I picked up #47 Rouge Defendu (a burnt orange red).

A few days later, I visited the Bourjois nail bar for hand treatment before an event.  After my hand treatment I realised I didn't bring along my make up bag for the night - so I hurried up and bought a lippie for touch-up.  Effet 3D Max Gloss #17 Grenade Juicy was procured, along with the almost matching 1 Seconde Nail Enamel in #11 Rouge in Style.

Part 2 - Past Product Review




Most of the things that I have tried and not particularly love from Bourjois are their mascaras.  My lashes are stubborn and picky, sparse and soft, which require mascara formulas to volumise, darken, lengthen and most importantly, hold the curl.

Note:  Some items are no longer available on the French website, similar images were used to replace them.

1.  Mascara Volume Clubbing - Did hold the curl but still a little heavy for my lashes.
2.  Volume Glamour - One of the oldest ones I have tried.  Not worked.
3.  Coup de Théâtre 2 en 1 - One of the first European take on the plastic wand/bristles.  The formula was too thin, but still straightened my lashes.
4.  Cafe and Creme Pencil - I liked the nude side better than the coffee side, but honestly, both sides smudged like crazy.
5.  Liner Pinceau - Doesn't work out a smooth line, doesn't dry quick enough.
6.  Brush Concealer - One of the first Bourjois products I have ever bought.  The 1st generation came in a peach tube like this image.  Back then it was one of the only items I would use every day~
7.  Make Up Remover - Despite being the bi-phase type of make up remover, it is not effective in removal waterproof make up.  Very difficult to get the 2 layers mixed too - shaking challenge.
8.  Express Cleansing Wipes - Review in this empties post (link).  Drying.
9.  Vitamin Toner - Smells and feels refreshing.  Not life-changing though.




10.  Pump Up Mascara - Clumpy instead of volumizing.
11.  Lash Serum - The clever thing is it can actually be attached to the Pump Up Mascara's top part.  Gimmick though.  It wets the lashes but didn't condition.
12.  Yes to Volume No to Clumps Mascara - Bourjois' take on the comb mascara, it was alright, but not the best.
13.  Maxi Frange Waterproof Mascara - No Way
14.  Bourjois Coup de Theatre Mascara - Okay
15.  Eyebrow Mascara - The colour selection is very narrow.  I prefer the Asian brands offering more.
16.  Pinceau Light-Reflecting Concealer - Horrible, doesn't cover, and the brush is tiny, delivered way too few product.
17.  Brush Concealer - Hurray!  Longer review can be found in this empties post (link).
18.  Cream Eyeshadow - Can be used as a base, or on its own.  I love the range of metallics they designed. Lovely!
19.  Night Lip Balm - Very nourishing and performed miracles overnight.  I am really mad this was discontinued!!!!!! Had a short review on my ancient billingual beauty pixnet blog, visit it if you're interested (link).
20.  Eau De Gloss Water Lipgloss - This was the only thing I wore one Summer, when I was working in a boring office.  However, within weeks, this gloss deteriorated into a really bad-smelling liquid.  Probably due to the too high h2o content in the formula!?
21.  Nail Polish Remover - Leaves an oily residue that is supposed to nourish, but I find it too weird.

Part 3 - My Current Bourjois Collection



I do keep quite a bit of Bourjois make up.  A number of them are discontinued or special edition packaging or such, I will be tossing some of them soon!  By the way, I have no idea why I have to type out every product name and colour...

Part 4 - News



Bourjois is releasing a new formula/line of lipsticks!  (Bourjois Hong Kong Facebook link - click me)  There are 18 brand new shades for these hydration pigmented BRIGHT lipsticks.  I am kind of struggling to NOT let myself go near any of the counters as I'm pretty sure a few of these lippies will rob my credit card and go home with me!

On the other hand, Bourjois is doing a foundation sampling programme, where I can get to try their foundations and obtain two 5ml samples after my consultation at their counters... So... should I risk the danger of buying too many lipsticks and go get the two foundations I'm super eager to test out (123 Perfect and Bio Detox)????


Part 5 - Wist List

New lipsticks!!!  I really love Bourjois' lipsticks, but they don't sell the brightest craziest most fun colours in their previous formulae.  Now that they are launching these Rouge Edition, I would really really love to try out a few colourful tubes!  :D  Some of the items in the image below aren't available in the local market, I'm still compiling it anyhow...  One can't stop dreaming, or should I?  :P






Everything: 
  • Khôl Kajal Queen Attitude
  • Mascara Volumizer
  • Dissolvant Miraculeux Magic Nail Polish Remover
  • Rouge Edition Lipstick
  • Colorissimo Lips Palette
  • Gloss Embellisseur de Sourire
  • 123 Perfect Foundation
  • Bio Detox Foundation
  • Flower Perfection New Generation Loose Powder
  • Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer
  • Touche Healthy Mix Concealer
  • Healthy Mix Healthy Glow Foundation
  • Poudre Bronzante Delice De Soleil Bronzer

Okay I will end this super long post here.  Thank you for bearing with me.  Hope you find this post helpful or interesting.

Do you like Bourjois?  What is your favourite Bourjois product(s)???

Hit Pan #7 | Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit




My fiancé, then boyfriend, bought this Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Sand from a Cosmetic Company Outlet when he visited the States.  I made sure he got a dictionary-thick wish list before he left, and out of the million items, he managed to pick up a few discounted gems for me.  Thankful.  I have two shades of this old-style concealer kit, one in Sand - featured in this post - and another one in Beige (slightly more pink tone, similar depth).

What it is.  The upper layer has a tiny mirror, and a pan of Creamy Concealer in Sand.  The lower layer has a wide-hole sieve divider and a pot of Sheer Finish Loose Powder in Pale Yellow.  A small powder puff in a small portable clear pouch came with the kit, but it doesn't fit in the lower compartment.  Hence I store that elsewhere.

How I use it.  I like to either use my finger, or a synthetic dome eye blending brush (Everyday Minerals Dome Blending Eye Brush - mentioned in previous post).  The concealer blends very smoothly and covers up decently.  After concealing, I set the under-eye area with the loose powder underneath.  Sometimes I use the blending fluffy brush, sometimes a sponge, depending which is available/nearby.

How I like it.  You have probably heard hundreds of people raving about this concealer, so I'll just keep it short and sweet.  Basically I adore its coverage, the creaminess and the staying power.  If set with the powder, it stays put all day.  I particularly enjoy the loose powder, which has a light tint, and brightens the under-eye slightly.  Very fine and smooth and not heavy/thick.

The creamy concealer kit is now repackaged with the powder pressed, and two pans come in the same layer.  I am not sure about the pressed powder as I really enjoy the loose version (although I admit it is messy to travel with).  I still have the 'Beige' shade to use up before I have to repurchase though, so that's a good thing~  On the other hand, I am tempted to get my hands on their stick foundation and correctors - my friend W.A. uses the stick foundation as concealer and praises it forever, and my friend Sam did an evil (=positive) review on the corrector - link.

Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, or their corrector, or their base products?  Tell me your favourite Bobbi Brown product below - or your favourite concealer(s)!

Finished Fortnight #3 | 十一月空瓶/凹凹



Note: This is a bilingual post, feel free to skip the language(s) you do not understand.

AK姐辦的美妝凹凹賞(點我)是我非常愛看的單元。
比起愛用品/敗家(開箱)分享,我覺得凹凹/空瓶的用後感更真切更「到肉」,
看著空空的瓶,扁扁的罐,覺得異常有滿足感!!
為了響應這一年一度的盛事,我把平時每兩周一篇的空瓶記特意加上中文。

由於我愛讀,又愛寫 blog 的關係,我出文都挺頻密的;
可是我不能每一篇文都生中英對照,因為我打中文字偏慢。
如果大家看到什麼文章/題材/產品,希望我用中文回答或者分享的話,
歡迎留言給我,我每一個留言都看,都回覆的!

我很簡單的把評分分為三類:Hurray 是愛用(會回購);Okay 是可以(可能回購);No Way 是不合用(不會回購)。

Basically, AK, a Taiwan well-known blogger started a "Hit Pan Award/Empties" series on her blog 5 years ago, before the whole empties craze hit the blogosphere or youtube.  I love reading AK's blog and her readers' empties entries, so I had to enter this year too!  If you read Chinese or are interested in Asian products, go to check out this series of hers (link), or her blog (link)!



Full Size 貨裝

Melvita, Narcissus Extraordinary Water - Hurray - My skin feels and looks at its best while I was using this as my toner + serum. It smells more of the stems, instead of flowers, and has all the good natural botanical ingredients in it.  (If you have been following me for a while, the Naruko Narcissus line that I also love is more like floral-scented than 'stem'...)  The Melvita leaves skin very fresh but hydrated.  I can see my skin glowing within a week!  Huge downside, this little bottle won't last long.  I applied it with cotton pads, as it is too runny to use with hands/fingers.  One bottle with day and night consecutive uses can only last a month or two for me.  Very expensive indulgence for a bottle of water/skin care!  However, compared to the also very expensive Cle de Peau skin care, this is more worthwhile.  Now I'm wishing really hard that I will receive this as Christmas present again.
Champneys Spa Treatment, Skin Comforting Body Butter - Hurray - I have not yet technically finish this tub.  How could you finish such a tub within a month?  (I bought this in early Nov.)  I guess I have used about 1/10 of it?  The reason it is in this post is because the tub cracked after I dropped it onto the floor... So I had to transfer the content to another container...  It smells delicious, sweet, creamy, vanilla-ish, comforting - fabulous.  The texture is a more like thick cream than hard butter, delivers much moisture and keep skin soft to touch and great-smelling overnight.
Essence, Express Dry Spray - Okay - I got this from a beauty swap with an Italian lady.  This helps nail polish dries faster.  I enjoy using this up, and it delivers results.  However, I can't use this in my tiny room (bad ventilation), and I prefer the dropper-oil type of fast-dry products.

Melvita 的水仙花水:一流。我臉部的皮膚非常喜歡它,用了一星期就又潤又嫩!可惜是,這瓶用量超兇,我用化妝棉來上,一個月多一點就乾了一瓶。。。Melvita 產品不便宜的說。Champneys 的潤膚霜其實還沒用完的,只是我手滑摔壞了盒子(現在大部分用另外一個瓶子裝著);這罐是厚厚的奶油狀(不是固體的牛油),很滋潤,而且重點是非常非常好聞-有點香草味,甜甜的,很享受~Essence 的指甲油快乾噴霧是義大利的朋友寄來的,不錯用,但我嫌它是壓縮氣體,在房間裡不好噴(對身體不好?)。


Naruko, Rose and Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Makeup Removing Oil Cleansing Oil - Okay - At first I really hated the scent - link to initial review - but after using up the whole thing, I quite like it.  It removes make up very effectively, leaves skin moist but not greasy.  I won't buy it individually again though, as the key ingredient is mineral oil.  I am 'neutral' on mineral oil, only complain is it is the cheapest filling/base ingredient in cosmetics, so I find it not justified for the $.  I will, however, repurchase if this cleanser comes in a set though - which Naruko often does.
Neutrogena, Extra Gentle Cleanser - Okay - I use this with my Clarisonic.  Non-foaming, creamy moisturising cream wash.  Like this a lot.
Kiss Me (Isehan), Heroine Make Mascara Remover - Okay - Use as a 'pre-cleanse' remover before I use my dual-phase remover on a cotton pad.  Nice stuff but I think I can survive without this... Now it's time to use up the 3 or 4 tubes of back-ups...
Celdie, Rosehip Cleansing Cold Cream - Hurray - Holy Grail that is sadly discontinued.  (I made up the name myself as I'm illiterate in Japanese.)  Smells divine, feels luxurious to use on the skin despite being only hkd $25 (usd $3).  Their foaming face wash are quite drying so I can't get those even though they make Rosehip scent also... Too bad.

愛慕可卸妝油很好卸,也很好洗,缺點是成本比較低(礦物油)而且香味沒有其他品項拿麼銷魂~露得清潔臉乳:基本款,無泡,我永來配合 Clarisonic 洗臉刷用。Kiss Me 的卸睫毛膏有用,不過我覺得,我平時用油水分離的那種都已經可以了,這個產品有一點點繁瑣。Celdie 玫瑰果卸妝冷霜(我不懂日文的:可能完全錯了名稱)是一罐停產好物。不多說了,說多了會心傷。



Travel Size/Samples 旅行裝/試用品,Full Size 貨裝

VO5, Hot Oil - No Way - A pre-shampoo treatment of some sort.  Doesn't nourish much, nor does my hair need that high maintenance anyway.
Bath and Body Works, Coconut Mango Body Lotion - Okay - A very summery scent.  The coconut trace reminds me of my favourite cocktail Pina Colada.  The mango is definitely there, too.  A sweet scent that totally screams Summer, beach and sunscreen (or sunbathing) to me!
Eternal Concept Mud Hair Mask - Okay - I got this in one of my Glamaboxes.  I used it in three washes, twice as a hair tips conditioner, and once as a scalp massage.  I like it, but I couldn't tell any big difference it has made on my locks.
Nubar, Foundation Base Coat - Hurray - One of the few nail base coats that I love.  I find this pretty similar to the OPI Natural one (also has a faint pink tint in the bottle).

VO5 的頭髮焗油普通,不(只)是它不夠好,而是我的頭髮不需要它。美國 Bath and Body Works / BBW 的護膚乳挺潤,而且非常香,這個椰子芒果倒是比較適合夏天哦~小小一罐的死海泥髮膜是 Glamabox 中的產品之一,用來按摩頭皮挺舒服的,不會很油膩,弄塌頭髮。Nubar 指甲底油很好用,快乾又能保護指甲不變黃。缺點是不好買,幸好 OPI 有一瓶淡粉色的跟這瓶也蠻接近。


Travel Size/Samples 旅行裝/試用品(小樣)

Punky, Candy Night Mask (Lemon Verbena) - Okay - Nothing special really, not particularly moisturising nor de-stressing (their claims) nor anything.
Estee Lauder, Advanced Night Repair Eye - Hurray - I am so sad I have finished this!  I love this stuff.  It is nourishing but feels light on the skin.  Smooths my fine lines and generally makes my eye area look much better!  On my re-purchase list for sure~
Cosme Decorte, Moisture Liposome - Okay - Magazine freebie.  Decent stuff but I won't be getting this at its full price.  Feels like normal mositurising serum to me.

Punky 糖果系晚安凍膜/檸檬馬鞭草還好,沒有特別幫肌膚「減壓」的感覺。Estee Lauder 的眼部精華:大大大大愛;我用完手傍的眼霜類一定會去補貨!Cosme Decorte 的精華素有沒有令我感覺幸福?沒有。"深層持續保濕,締造飽滿柔滑嫩肌"還好吧,我覺得是比較基本款的保濕效果,沒有令我驚艷呢。


Travel Size/Samples 旅行裝/試用品(小樣)

BRTC, Aqua Rush Cream - No Way - Got this tube with a BB cream set, however, despite madly in love with BRTC's various BB cream, this cream sxcks.  It feels like dried up sleeping mask in a tube, suffocating and not moisturising.
Natio Men, Daily Face Wash - Okay - Used this up as a shower gel for my back acne.  Doesn't worsen the situation, smells very manly/cologne-ish, refreshing.
Nuxe, Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Rose Petals- Okay - I adore the scent and natural exfoliating particles, but not the gel texture it comes in.

BRTC 的面霜很黏很厚,好像乾掉的晚安面膜,不推。Natio Men 男士潔臉我拿來當沐浴露洗澡,莎莎會員積分換的,味道十分像「古龍水」。Nuxe 玫瑰去角質很溫和,我特別喜歡磨砂的粒子。


Travel Size/Samples 旅行裝/試用品(小樣)

Divinia, Moisture Cleansing Wipes - Okay - Basically I only like wipes to remove the 1st layer of dirt or melted make up when I got home, I always double cleanse with make up remover and cleanser in the shower.  This Divinia offering is pretty moist, decent sized (I prefer even larger though), not bad.
Zelens, Cellular DNA Protection Day Cream - Okay - A lot of British beauty bloggers are raving about the acid exfoliating pads this brand makes, which I have not had the privilege to try out yet.  This cream was sent to me by Ari, and I love it.  It reminds me of the Dr. Hauschka type of good herbal creams.  It is moisturising and my skin did feel protected.  Great smell too.
La Roche Posay, Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser - Okay - Non-foaming milky cleanser.  Great stuff for sensitive skin.

Divinia 卸妝棉不錯,挺濕,不刺激。只是其實我本身日常程序不一定用得到,而且我喜歡布的面積更大一點。Zelens 日霜非常天然,感覺很像 Dr. Hauschka 的護膚品,希望有機會再用用她們的品項。La Roche Posay 無泡潔面,也是來自 Glamabox。十分適合敏感肌膚,很短的成分表:好事!

Phyto, Phytheol Intense Treatment Shampoo Anti-Dandruff - No Way - I admit I do not have dandruff issue, so in the first place, it isn't formulated for my scalp.  I ripped it open to test it just to see if I would like it (so I could purchase it when I might have dandruff issue).  This stings.  It did leave my hair clean and voluminous (surprise!), and my scalp felt healthy.  However, I cannot stand the pungent fume, so I will most probably purchase other Phyto shampoos in the future.
Davines, Love Lovely Curl Enhancing Shampoo AND Davines, Love Lovely Curl Enhancing Conditioner - Okay - I enjoyed the samples when I was on a getaway weekend.  

Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Shampoo - No Way - It targets coarse hair which I do not have, but I decided to give this a try anyway.  The scent is not lovely; I prefer their other hair product scents, e.g. the amino acid line.  It leaves my hair very soft after the wash, but nothing fancy.
Kiehl's, Superbly Smoothing Argan Conditioner - Okay - Smells better than the shampoo.  I only used this on my hair from the ears down to the ends.  Mositurises very well, and leaves hair soft and decent-smelling.

Phyto 洗護是我心中的夢幻逸品,這款洗髮水是針對問題頭皮的(我沒有!),味道非常天然地難聞!以後我會買她其他系列的洗護髮,會自動跳過這款。這款 Davines 洗護是針對捲曲頭髮的,沒什麼特別感覺,但我對這個牌子很有好感;不知道哪裡有賣?Kiehl's 高效順滑護理系列成份有摩洛哥堅果油和芝麻籽油,我的頭髮沒有太毛燥,比較喜歡"豐盈"效果。而且我覺得這套洗護沒有氨基酸那款香呢~





Make Up 化妝品

Burberry Beauty, Fresh Glow - Okay - Used and revied in this FOTD.  Not a must have, but nice to have primer that gives skin an amazing glow.
Burberry Beauty, Sheer Foundation - Okay - I prefer something either even more sheerer (and gives skin a healthy finish), or something higher coverage.  This is a nice in the middle foundation.  Also used and reviewed in this FOTD.

Burberry 的化妝品我超愛,比如說已經全包了 6 色眼影盤新品。這個粉底和底霜好用,不過我有其他更愛的牌子。




Masks 面膜

Sasatinnie, Cucumber Refining and Clarifying Mask - I will be doing a collective review on a few on these masks, please keep an eye out for those!
Providence Beauty, Spotless Oil Control - Review coming!

Combos Skin, Tea Tree Balancing Mask - Review coming!

Louvier, Moisture Mask - Hurray - link to my previous review
White Formula 自白肌, Intense Repair Mask with Collagen and Elastin - Hurray - link to my previous review
Sasatinnie, Snail Renewing Face Mask - Okay - link to my previous review

這幾款當中我比較喜歡的是自白肌和 Louvier 的。

(因為要打中文,比平時多用了三倍以上時間出這篇文呢!)

謝謝收看!
