Garnier's Micellar Water #smartbeauty Challenge

In a far, far away land called Dressing Table, the cute and pretty inhabitants were protected by a mysterious super hero. No one knew the true identity of this mysterious figure (with his dashing pink cape that fluttered in the wind), or where he came from - all that was known was that this mysterious hero fought valiantly for all of Dressing Table, with the amazing power of Time Saving

This valiant hero fights grime and removes makeup, with a super gentle, perfume free formula, that soothes and cleanses skin. Armed with his trusty cotton bud and cotton pad arsenal, foundation, lipstick and non-waterproof eye makeup is a cinch to eliminate. No harsh rubbing  or rinsing necessary. 

Skin is left soft and nourished, cleansing afterwards is optional, as this Time Saving hero is a multi-functional, all in one package. Not only does he eliminate dirt and day old makeup, but he cleans up at the same time too...

And he's generous - with an approximate 200 uses, you can rely on him to come to the rescue for months to come. 

Day by day, Dressing Table and its inhabitants have never been so refreshed...though they might never find out this Time Saving hero's true identity, they hope he'll continue his valiant efforts...

*My entry for the Garnier x Kidspot #smartbeauty challenge*

This was sent to me as a PR sample, and the conditions of my agreement to participating in the challenge was to create a blog post review about the product, using the prompt TIME SAVING in an experimental and creative way. This is where my brain went...

I know it's different from my normal reviews, and this may have come off more of an advertorial rather than a review, however I actually was already onto my second bottle of this before I was even sent one of these, and I featured the Micellar water in my July Beauty Faves too, so I do actually really like this remover, and use it everyday. I'd recommend it if you don't wear a lot of waterproof makeup - it takes a little longer to remove waterproof mascaras and lip products, but it's great for removing all other makeup gently and quickly.

Sunkissed Beauty - Arbonne Golden Coast Palette

Hi lovelies! You saw my review on the Arbonne Country Palette a few days ago, right? (Link here if you haven't)

Well, today I'm going to follow up with their other recent release - the Golden Coast Palette. As the name suggests, this beautifully and vibrantly packaged all in one set is inspired by the Australian beaches and coastlines.

PeriPera Water Lip Tint - No. 1 Cherry Juice

Lovelies, I've got a super cute lip tint to show you today, courtesy of LoveShoppingholics ^.^

Peripera is a really cute Korean brand, with the most darling packaging! Their packaging is cute, with a hint of edginess. 

Peri's Water Lip Tint is a watery lip and cheek tint, which comes in 5 different shades. I have the first shade Cherry Juice, which as the names suggests, is a sweet cherry red shade. 

The tint comes in a generous size, seeing as only a little goes a long way, in a little glass bottle with a plastic cap. The cap is illustrated with a very cute looking figure - if you look closely you can see she also has red lips to match the tint. 

There's a furry applicator attached to the lid for application - I prefer it to the brush applicator in the Benetint, but as the applicator is quite large and can soak so much tint, it can over apply easily if you aren't careful. 

The tint formula itself is very pigmented for a water tint - especially in comparison to the Benetint (the only other red tint I own at the moment) and the Etude House Cherry Pink Tint (which is more of a milky formula rather than watery). 

With the Peri tint you can go soft and natural, or bright cherry red depending how much you apply and how you apply it. For a soft and natural application I tap a drop or two on my fingertip and then sweep it onto my lips and lightly patting. And for a much more pigmented lip I apply directly with the applicator and smooth it out with my finger if needed. 

It didn't dry out my lips either, which I love, and it's fairly long wearing, as long as you don't eat greasy foods or constantly wet your lips :P 

As a cheek tint, because it's so pigmented, you have to be more cautious when applying it - two light dabs of the applicator to my cheek is all I need. And because it's a watery formula you have to work quickly before it dries up. 

Gradient lips - dapped the tint on my inner lips with the applicator, and applied the rest with finger tip
Also wearing it as a rosy flush
Under bright sunlight
Heavily applied with applicator - fingertips used to smooth out the outer edgers for a less sharp lip line

FOTD details of the above look can be found here

I've actually been loving this a lot - this even featured in my July Beauty Faves. It's a gorgeous colour - I've been wearing it softly rather than fully pigmented, and it just gives lips a pretty cherry popsicle like sheen. 

I was quite impressed with this tint, so I'd definitely recommend giving this a go if you're on the hunt for a cherry red tint!

You can grab it here from LoveShoppingholics 

Have you tried any Peripera makeup before?

Just a quick FOTD filler post for you today lovelies ^^

It's sort of an 'upgraded' version of my normal daily look - so basically my everyday look, but more made up. 

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream #21
Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer #51 (got some stress related breakouts atm, boo)

Etude House Aloha Highlighter
Peripera Water Tint in #1 Cherry Juice

Etude House Drawing Brow Pen in Brown
Brown Browcara - random Japanese brand

Etude House Bling Eye Stick in #8 Ivory 
Etude House Proof 10 Auto Pencil #BR402
KATE Mascara Base
Maybelline New York Falsies Mascara (waterproof version)

Peripera Water Tint in Cherry Juice

EOS V-check Two Tone Brown

For day to day wear I normally only go with the bb cream, brow pencil, highlighter, and matching lip and cheek tint. I'm normally too lazy to do eye makeup unless it's a special occasion, or if I'm really in the mood to dress up :P

I will have the Peripera lip tint review up tomorrow night! 

For now, chat to you later ^^

July Beauty Faves

Lovelies, it's time for another Beauty Faves post!

Here's what I've been enjoying this last month~

I'm working full time now so it's pretty dark when I get home nowadays - but I managed to come home a little earlier and snap this pic outdoors (as my room was too dark). Kinda like how it turned out, though I still prefer my cute dressing table more >.< 

Tony Moly Latte Art Milk Tea Morning Pack (RRP from $11)

Long name, but it's just basically a makeup primer. I bought this ages and ages ago - used it once and didn't think it did anything so I put it away. Recently I decided to try it again as I can't bear to let it go to waste, and ended up loving it! 

It's perfect for dryer skin types as it's nice and hydrating, and it makes my bb cream glide on nicely. It also makes my bb cream last longer too. 

It's really good for rushed mornings too, if I'm running late I'll just apply this rather than moisturiser, as it's hydrating enough to act as both moisturiser and primer.

Innisfree Smart Foundation Perfect Cover (RRP from $8)

Ahhhh, just realised I photographed the wrong tube >.< Hehe, I bought both the Super Moisture and Perfect Cover. But anyways, the packaging's the same! 

I've only used the Perfect Cover foundie twice so far, but I'm really impressed. The coverage is soooo good!

The reviews I've read on these were pretty negative, but I personally really like this (so far). It's thick like bb cream, rather than liquid-y like Western foundations, and has really good coverage for slight redness and faded acne scars. 

SheerSkin Supa Hydra Soothing Cream (reviewed here)

I've been loving it a lot this month because it's so hydrating. It just sinks into my skin, and makes my bb cream glide on like melted butter, if that makes sense 0.o

I wanted to repurchase it but Cosmetic Love no longer stocks the brand T.T 

Peripera Cherry Lip Tint in Cherry Juice (RRP from $12)

I've been using a lot more lip tints than lipsticks the last few months, and this Peri Pera one has become a fave recently. It looks similar to Benetint, but is quite a bit more pigmented. 

I really like it, and plus the packaging is too cute! 

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (RRP $11.99)

The much cheaper dupe of Bioderma's cleansing water, you can see there's only a splash or two left in the bottle, lol. 

When I got my eyelash extenstions I had to switch from my oil cleanser to one that was oil free, so I got this, and have been loving it ever since. 

It cleanses really well, despite looking just like water, and it's gentle and non-drying too. 

I did repurchase this as it works well, the bottle lasts ages, and it's affordable.

Let's end it here - thank you for reading lovelies, and what have you been loving this July? 

xoxo Tulip
