Beauty Swap | MissNoire at Japan

Compared to some others, I have been a relatively new addict to Instagram, but my addiction is serious.  I think I was hooked on since last Summer'12, introduced by my sister JENHO_SK Jen.  Anyhow, I got to see and share a lot of amazing images on there.  Beauty bloggers, or beauty lovers, connect on Instagram like no other platforms too.  Last year I have done a swap with fellow instagrammer HDBEAUTY Beatrice, whom, of course, I met on IG.  This year, one of my last giveaway winner, MISSNOIRE Nadine, who's also a beauty friend I met on IG, offered to do a swap with me!  

I asked MissNoire if she can find me some good skin care bits for dry hands and skin, along with a good moisturising concealer.  She fulfilled my wishes and threw in many amazing things.

Initial Impression

I can't wait to try some of the things the moment I ripped the box open.  First of all, I consumed the Kit Kat in light speed.  Very very yummy.  I have a serious big sweet tooth and they are so sweet and right down my alley.  Two of them are condensed milk flavour, and two in blueberry cheesecake flavour.

Other things I really enjoy include the foundation brush, the body fragrance spray, and the concealer.  The foundation brush by Kose Esprique is made with synthetic hair, I think.  I washed it, it dried quickly, and I used it with my powder foundation in a buffing motion.  A new method I learnt from the back of the brush, still trying it out, but so far so good!  The Body Fantasies body fragrance spray smells delicious, I sprayed it on and it stays on for a good few hours, impressed.  I am a concealaholic, and I have quite a stash of concealers (link to my inventory post).  This new addition from Kiss Me Ferme is creamy, has a spot-on colour match and seems to conceal nicely.  Will give it some good uses and report back!  :D

My box is still on its way to MissNoire's address.  Finger-crossed everything's alright and she'll be pleased with the giveaway prizes along with the other goodies I sent!

  1. Oh! Didn't realize you already owned that hand cream. Oops! Hope you like it and were thinking about getting a back up. hahah.
    Hope you like the concealer. I tried it on in the store but of course testing it out on my skin didn't really help. I just kept my fingers crossed hoping it matched your skin tone. :)
    I also hope the Womnale DX II helps. I paced the store for about 10 minutes before finally deciding on that one. hahah..

    1. i really am enjoying the concealer - your guess was pretty darn close i must say! i have to keep telling myself not to use it so much as i need to finish 2 other concealers for project 10 pan :P
      i will whack the womnale cream open soon, once i finish my vaseline body butter (also for project 10 pan)!

  3. I heard that the kose esprique foundation brush is even better than the shiseido 131 brush.

  4. You got a lot goodies in the swap!
    I heard that the lose esprique foundation brush is even better than the shiseido 131 brush.

    1. i haven't tried the shiseido one, but i love how the kose is slightly domed up (is that a correct description?) instead of a flat top. been liking it so far!
