Woohoo, three cheers to my favourite festive season that is coming right up! Who else is looking forward to sipping a cup of hot cocoa and binge watching Netflix? Alright, I am sure we do this everyday and it does not have to be Christmas but this is THE SEASON where brands would throw out exciting limited edition drops with the prettiest packagings. Of course, L'Oreal Paris never fail to surprise us and I promise, you are in for a treat! Nuff' said, let's get into the nitty gritty as I will be sharing with you must-haves this season!
Brow Artist Tattoo Tint
Smudge-Proof, Sweat-Proof & Water-Proof!
Dual-Ended Tattoo Tint - Tint & Style Your Brows With Just 2 Steps
Available in 2 Shades | Retails for SGD$23.90
Are you one of those victims of runaway brows after a long day out? Especially with Singapore's humid weather, even the toughest brow pomade is unable to stay budge-proof. Don't worry, been there, done that. I have always been a victim of runway brows because of my severe oily skin. My brows, especially the tail, would ALWAYS be gone by midday. A staple makeup product in all my bags is definitely a brow pencil.
Previously, in order to curb with this reoccurring makeup faux pas, I have tried the super hyped Peel-Off Brow Tint and even spent THOUSANDS to get my eyebrows embroidered. Yes, I paid so much and even endured the searing pain of having a blade slice through my skin just to have presentable brows. Sadly, the effects were never good enough and I still had to fill them in on a daily basis. Now you know why even with so many salons wanting to sponsor their eyebrow embroidery service, I am still better off trying to fill them in. Aside from that, I always have this recurring fear that I would be stuck with weird brows for a week should I mess up the brow shape when using the Peel-Off Brow Tint.
Despite all my efforts to overcome runaway brows, I often find myself spending 5 minutes touching up my brows until I found the new L'Oreal Brow Artist Tattoo Tint. This is a legit saviour and trust me, when I say it stayed on... it stayed on real good! ;)
The L'Oreal Brow Artist Tattoo Tint comes with two sides - A Felt Tip Brush to fill in and define your brows & a Brow Mascara to tint and tame your mane. When I first received this product, I was genuinely shocked by how thick the packaging is. It literally looked like a marker for your brows! However, do not be fazed by the packaging because the felt tip brush has one of the most easiest control for a good precise application. It is not too stiff and has a good flick to create natural looking brows. The brow mascara on the other hand, has a small tapered spooly for an even application.
Unlike the trendy Peel-Off Brow Tint that goes on like a marker (and leaves your brows looking like one too), this nifty tool leaves a nice tint which can be accentuated with the accompanying brow mascara to create perfect arches to frame your face. With the Brow Artist Tattoo Tint, you never have to worry about boxy stamped looking brows!
As this is a fairly new product, it is only available in 2 shades but the colours are definitely versatile for most skin tones. You can work up the pigmentation simply by going over the same area with the felt tip brush. The soft pointed tip helps to create a precise brow tail which will last the entire day. The colour is buildable and I love how the brow mascara is of a slightly different tint to add more depth to the brows. You want your brows to look alive and fluffy, not printed on with a stencil! Who knows, if you guys love this product and sweep it off the shelves, they may come out with more shades in the future? Y'all know what happened with the L'Oreal Brow Designer 3-in-1 so this is no exception!
How To Apply
Natural brows that last all day? No problem with the L'Oreal Brow Artist Tattoo Tint! Let me show you how I perfect my arches in just 2 steps.
Let's Put It To The Test
Big claims, I know. Nothing beats the truth so we are going to put these nifty Brow Artist Tattoo Tint to the test! Do you think they can hold up against Singapore's humid weather? Let's see!
Oh yes, YES! Smudge-proof, you got it! I love a good brow product that stays in place. With this budge-proof formula, you need not worry about runaway brows anymore!
It may be waterproof but it can still be easily removed with a makeup remover. You know what this means... you can still look fabulous with those gorgeous brows even when you are swimming!
Overall, I really love this Brow Artist Tattoo Tint because it definitely lives up to its name! It literally stays put through thick and thin and I do enjoy the convenience of both defining and taming my arches with just one product. It definitely needs a little time to get used to because it isn't like your traditional brow pencil/powder but once you get the hang of it, you will never go back!
Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks
High Colour Payoff, Weightless & Moisturizing!
Lushly scented, the Colour Riche Shine Lipstick delivers HIGH SHINE with just one swipe!
Available in 10 Shades | Retails for SGD$20.90
Mattes, mattes, mattes! That is all we have been hearing for the past year (or more) but guess what? SHINE is slowly making its way back into our hearts and I ain't complaining! My lips definitely need a break from all the drying matte finishes. Even luxury brands like YSL is slowly reintroducing their shine lipsticks back into the line. Remember how the Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick took the world by storm? Even a matte lippie lover like me have a couple of it stashed in my drawers. Y'know, when there's a demand, you need a supply!
Hundred points for the ultra sleek and trendy packaging. I am totally digging the chic silver and loving the good weight of these lippies. You know you are getting quality when your product is a clear reflection of luxury. These lipsticks are the perfect companion to your purses and trust me when I say heads are gonna turn when you whip em' out for a touch up because they SHINE! At such a pocket-friendly price point, the L'Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks are bound to sell out in a heartbeat.
Available in 10 luscious shades, you are bound to find one suitable for your style! Nude and dark lippies are my jam and the shades Burgundy Craze, Mauve Intense and Rouge Haussman are my jam! How about you? Which shade speaks most to you?
Here's me rocking my favourite shades and I LOVE how these lippies have a pleasant soft rose fragrance to it! You know what I really enjoy about these Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks? It's SUPERB colour pay-off with just one swipe! It has such a great pigmentation that beats even a couple of my luxury shine lipsticks. The texture is extremely lightweight and it feels like butter as you glide it across your lips. Not drying at all, these lipsticks definitely packs a punch and leave your lips feeling soft, moisturised and dressed in vivid colours. My only issue is that it does not last as long as a classic matte lipstick due to its shine nature. After a meal, you definitely need some touching up. Luckily, the touch up process is a breeze and there is no patchiness or uneven colour pay-off. Plus points as it does not feel tacky at all! Nobody wants a sticky pout.
To sum it all up, I am OBSESSED with L'Oreal's holiday drop this year and I definitely can't get enough of the Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks. Even with the whole range nicely decked on my vanity, I still want more because they are that good! Did I mention, with the added shine to your lippie, it makes your puckers look plumper and juicier! So hello sexy lips, you are ready for the holidays! With that, thank you so much for reading and hope you enjoy the new launches as much as I do! Cheers to a wonderful festive season!
