Kiko Milano Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 05 Rosy Gold and 06 Golden Brown, photo swatches and review

image

Hiya, today I would like to share my review on 2 Kiko eyeshadow sticks with you.
I’ve picked these up awhile ago and have been testing them solidly for the last two weeks. Before that, I had been addicted to Bobbi Brown Creamy shadow stick in Bronze for a very long time. Actually, almost a year now as it was a limited edition from last holiday season.

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 05 Rosy Brown and 06 Golden Brown @iamcherrylemon

I would normally grab a cream shadow stick when I’m in a hurry. It plays the important role along with my liquid liner. Cream shadow sticks are great, as you can get away with just using 1 colour on your eyes and still look like you’ve spent considerable amount of time on them!

image

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow 05 and 06 @iamcherrylemon

Kiko’s versions are very comparable to Bobbi Brown’s, in terms of longevity and pigmentation. Bobbi Brown’s version cost around £20 each!

Kiko long lasting shadow sticks are in matte black packaging, very sleek and the lid closes securely. This is of auto type, which means you don’t need to shapen these with a sharpener.

I find that when I use Kiko’s I will have to blend the shadow out quickly. As it doesn’t take long to set and last you all day. I’ve tried then with and without primer, personally I do not think you need a primer. But if your eyelids are slightly oilier than you might need to consider using a primer. These shadow sticks are very easy to use.

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow swatches @iamcherrylemon

05 Rosy Brown
This is true to its name, a very nice rosy taupe brown and it apples very smoothly and nicely.

06 Golden Brown
This is a gorgeous taupe brown, and as you can see in the photo swatch. It does look very close to Bobbi Brown’s shadow stick in Bronze.

Pros:

Cons:
Sets really quickly so work fast!

Price: £6.90

Happy Thanksgiving! Quick unboxing Thanksgiving Box Collection #1 For Me and #2 For You

Memebox Thanksgiving Box Collection @iamcherrylemon

Memebox Thanksgiving Box Collection @iamcherrylemon

I am delighted with these boxes! So what did we get in the Thanksgiving boxes?! 
 
Who am I kidding here, of course both boxes are for me :p hehe quite weird as we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK. But I personally celebrate Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays! Love a good sale, right?
The boxes are also specially designed and very fitting to the theme. Orange is such a happy colour (well yellow is a happier colour to me :P)
 
Thanksgiving Box #1 For Me
Memebox Thanksgiving Collection #1 for Me!
Box Contents:
1. Clio Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip #22 Electric 3.5g, RRP $10
A bright almost neon orange lipstick by day, and a glow in the dark lippy under blue LED lights after hours! It promises to glide onto your lips smoothly and stains with the colour radiance and lasts like a matte lipstick. The vivid colour formation is based on safflower components used in lip stains by Korean geishas. I can see how pretty will look against Korea light skin tone, very eye catching indeed. I am only just starting to discover this brand, hope to get my hands on their Kill Cover foundation!
Clio Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip @iamcherrylemon

Clio Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip @iamcherrylemon

 
2. Jaminkyung Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner 110ml, RRP $46
This is a 2 phase essence type toner blended with whole grain-infused toner and deeply nourishing camellia oil. It delivers a rich moisture boost to the skin, while controlling moisture/oil balance for dry/sensitive skin.
My skin is oily combination, so unsure if I should try this as I fear it will be too rich on my skin. Have you tried this?
Jaminkyung Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner @iamcherrylemon

Jaminkyung Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner @iamcherrylemon

3. 803 803 Cream 50g, RRP $34
I received the 803 Young Cream, the Young cream is for a moisture booster for face and the body. There are 2 more options, including 802 Palzza Cream, this aims to firm up and filling the deepening “Smile lines” that run from the nose down n to corners of the mouth (I would prefer this actually!). Third option is the 803 Sam N Cream, what a funny name for a cream… Sam N cream is for sagging neckline, it contains a blend of caffeine and collagen extracts.
803 Young Cream @iamcherrylemon

803 Young Cream @iamcherrylemon

4. Sally’s Box 4 set, RRP $13
I am absolutely delighted receiving these 4 masks, despite the fact I just received a huge box of Sally’s Box! A girl can never have too many masks ;)
There are 3 Hydrogel masks and a Sally’s signature Love Recipe Apple mask. Sally’s masks are always great value for money, it get s featured in memeboxes pretty regularly actually!
I yet to try Hydrogel masks, I have high expectation of them being the best fitting and moisturising masks yet! I shall report back! {I think I will try one tonight!]
Sally's Box 4 piece set @iamcherrylemon

5. Tonymoly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar 0.2g, RRP $11
Nice inclusion into the box, I have ever had 1 perfume bar/stick and it was Britney’s first perfume. I remember it smelled really pretty and sweet. Don’t judge!
This perfume stick smells citrusy, which I do prefer over musky scents. Yes even in winter I do not like musky scents :p This perfume bar is convenient to use and carry around with you. This cute little guy shall live in my handbag from now on!

Tonymoly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar and Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam @iamcherrylemon

6. Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam 75ml, RRP $8
This is a creamy foaming cleanser for face, it can be used to remove makeup residue (for second cleanse!), dead skin cells and blackheads. I received a tub of this from Global #15 box already, I am still using the dDung milky cleaner from the CW3. I probably sell, swap or give this away as I am running out of space for backups!
7. Pisteo Bright & Pure C Serum 7ml, RRP $25 (a normal pack containing 4 serum is $100)
This serum is created with pure Vitamin C concentrates, the tiny bottle will replenish moisture balance, firms up wrinkles, and brightens up complexion. I do believe Vitamin C has this ability, I love Vitamin C creams.
I am not sure how far 7ml would last me!
Pisteo Bright & Pure C Serum @iamcherrylemon

Pisteo Bright & Pure C Serum @iamcherrylemon

This box sounds more like a “For You” box to me, 3 out of 7 items I am unlikely to use! It’s ok, I can’t have it all!
Total retail value of this box is $147 and the cost of the box is $26 plus shipping.

 
Thanksgiving Box #2 For You
Memebox Thanksgiving Collection #2 for You

Memebox Thanksgiving Collection #2 for You

Box Contents:
1. Vivito Illust Lumiere Primer 30ml, RRP $50
$50 primer? This better delivers a miracle! This primer is formulated for drier skin, I am starting to think this is a box set made for dry skin people… should have put a warning on the website!
This primer aims to create an invisible barrier between your skin and your makeup, the hydrating formula nourishes the skin with a blend of lavender water and bergamot leaf extracts. It primes your skin, helps control excess oil while thinly covering up visible pores and fine lines. I think I have to tread carefully with this one if I really going to test it, anything for drier skin might be too rich. I have problem when using non heavy-duty primer, the makeup would slide off my face, especially around the T zone.

2. Shara Shara Miracle Multi Cream 50ml, RRP $18
This cream (It’s a balm!!) has such cute packaging, it deserves a place in some sort of a cute box! The cream contains 30 types of plant oil complex including grape seed oil, rosehip oil, and green tea seed oil. I am a big fan of green tea seed creams! I hope this will work for me. It claims to delivery moisture boost to dry and tired skin, locking moisturise for over 48 hours.
This is what my Khiels Ultra facial cream does, so I wonder how this one compares. I am happy receiving this in the box.

3. Shara Shara Brush Set, RRP $24
This is a 5 brush set, containing a face powder brush, 3 for eye makeup application and 1 lip brush. I was really amazed at seeing this in the box, I thought we were going to get the brush roll case only, but it actually has brushes in it. I am very picky with brushes but also welcome to try new brands. I believe a cheap brush can perform well when the design is right and made with the right materials.
Shara Shara Brush Set @iamcherrylemon

4. Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm 12g, RRP $24
This lip balm is infused with orange peel oil, grape extracts, blackberry extracts and Vitamin E. This balm revives dry and chapped lips. I received the orange option. The other possible option is grape.
Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm @iamcherrylemon

Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm @iamcherrylemon

5. Peripera Heart Glow Stick 02 Gold Aura 6.5g, RRP $14
This is a cream highlighter in stick form, the shade is gold aura. Cream highlighters can be a hit or miss, as powder highlighter would last longer but it doesn’t look like natural as the cream highlighter. I am happy to try this as I was eyeing up the Benefit’s Watts Up cream highlighter and that costs almost twice the price of this Peripera version.
As you can see in the photo swatches, it blends beautifully!

6. with Shyan Nail Lacquer 15ml, RRP $4
Not sure if you know but I am very into nails and nail art. A shade like this receives a warm welcome, I like wacky colours. I receive the neon purple option. I am actually really impressed with the nail polish, it is almost opaque with 1 coat, the consistency is perfect and very easy to use!
with Shyan Nail Lacquer and Saracen Glitter @iamcherrylemon

with Shyan Nail Lacquer and Saracen Glitter @iamcherrylemon

7. Saracen Fluorescent Glitter 13g, RRP $6
Gold glitter in a see-through pot, looks nice and glittery! Check our my mani done with the “with Shyan” nail polish with the added glitter! The manicure is done with 2 coats of polish and no topcoat.

8. Pure Smile Essence Mask Sheet 23ml 2 pieces, RRP $2
I love sheet masks, so this is a lovely item for me to add to my collection. There are 2 masks in a packet. I received the Milk option, there is another option which is Strawberry milk…. Hmm yummy.
Pure Smile Essence Masks @iamcherrylemon

8 items in a single box! And there are 7 useable items for me! This “For You” box is definitely for ME!

Great value boxes indeed! I am so happy I have got these two in a bundle. I am feeling so jolly right now. These boxes definitely put me in the right happy mood! Thanks memebox!!

Christmas lights at London Carnaby Street 2014 [Non-Beauty Related]

Hi there, I thought I share some pictures I’ve taken last week while out with my girl friends. After our meal in Covent Garden, we went to Oxford street and wandered to Carnaby Street.

Carnaby street is a pedestrian only shopping areas with all sorts of shops available. I love it there. The Christmas lights are also very quirky and cool, I much prefer this than Oxford street lights.

Many wonderful and beautiful shop windows all dressed up for Christmas shoppers.. just lovely!

I hope you will enjoy this post :)

What do city girls in Seoul consider as their daily cosmetic essentials? Unboxing of Memebox Superbox #75 City Girl

Memebox Superbox #75 City Girl

An unboxing post on the City Girl box. To be honest, this was very attractive to me when memebox first launching it together with Foot Therapy and While You Were Sleeping boxes. I am a city girl with the heart of a country girl! Hehehe

I like being well groomed and all made up but only while at work. So before the spoiler item was revealed, I believe we were getting makeup based items. (I am not far off!) Just did not expect the type of makeup being included the box. This post also tells you that I do not normally read instructions and what kind of trouble I get myself into most of the time.

 This box was curated by memebox after completing surveys with city girls in Seoul, who they call Seoulites. This box supposed to contains all the very important items would call essentials.

Memebox Superbox #75City Girl - Unboxed @iamcherrylemon

Memebox Superbox #75City Girl – Unboxed @iamcherrylemon

City Girl Box Contents:

Migabee Verbena Cream 50ml, RRP $29

This is a moisturising cream containing shea butter, peptide complex and natural moisturising factors, it aims to help you to achieve supple, silky smooth complexion. It also claims to be able to improve skin elasticity and strengthens skin’s intrinsic ability to retain moisture.

I might start using this moisturiser under my makeup, I have been relying heavily on the “Cleosis All In One Water Shining Finisher” from my Brightening box. It is a cream that does the jobs of an essence, serum, moisturiser and primer! Saves me loads of time!

Migabee Verbena Cream @iamcherrylemon

Migabee Verbena Cream @iamcherrylemon

Mizon Oh! Shy Gorgeous On Liquid Cheek 8ml, RRP $16

Ah, this is the spoiler item, I did have some iffy feelings about the box when I saw this. I have no idea why I stuck to it, but I believe I can use this box up bar 1 product! Read on :p

This product works like a liquid blusher that you brush on and blend for the natural glowing cheek colours. It is medium coral pink.
This is very pigmented and you’ll only need very little for both cheeks.

The information card suggests that you can also mix this with BB, CC cream to transform your skin from ordinary to extraordinary. I think it depends on how much and how well you blend the 2 products!

Mizon Oh! Shy Gorgeous On Liquid Cheek @iamcherrylemon

Mizon Oh! Shy Gorgeous On Liquid Cheek @iamcherrylemon

Shara Shara Dew Veil Primer Balm 25g, RRP $13

This is a primer cream that is rich in vitamin and iron. It is hydrating that can help neutralise the skin tone, sooth dry patches to create a smooth base for makeup application.

This item was being dissed on FB groups.. I am not sure why. I will report back once I have done one day makeup with it and report back if it is true.

Shara Shara Dew Veil Primer Balm @iamcherrylemon

Shara Shara Dew Veil Primer Balm @iamcherrylemon

Original Raw Multi Pigment – I am Designer [orange, pink, beige] 10g (3 units), $42

A pack of pigments in fancy and gift-able packaging! Xmas is looming so I might save this as stocking filler! This pack contains highly blend-able pigments to use on eyes, lips and cheeks. You can layer the pigments under powder blushes, bronzers, lip balms and glosses for the added intensity.

You can even play around with the pigments to create your own shades.

Original Raw Multi Pigment – I am Designer @iamcherrylemon

Original Raw Multi Pigment – I am Designer @iamcherrylemon

Migabee Pure Berry Oil Soap Honey 310ml, RRP $29

This product is huge at 310ml. It is an all-in-one multi cleanser for hair, body, and facial use. Once mixed with water, it becomes a creamy foam that cleanse the face very well. The honey blend is made with bee venom, honey, propolis, and acai extracts.

The item smells very un-honey like, I cannot describe the scent but it is heavy floral to me. RIGHT, so I did not read the instructions on the information card. I really like the look of it so I opened the bottle and start using it as an oil cleanser. How wrong was I and how regrettable I felt! My eyes were stinging even thou I tried not to open my eyes, somehow, soap has the ability to penetrate into any cracks on any face. With the amount I put *wrongly* onto my face, it took me double time to remove it with lukewarm water… plenty of warm water and lots of splashing!

THAT will teach me a lesson I won’t forget!

Innisfree It’s a real squeeze facial sheet masks ~ Green Tea and Blackberries! Product Review

image

Hiya, having re-read the title of this post.. it sounded like some sort of herbal teas I am reviewing!

Anyhow! Today I will be reviewing couple of Innisfree facial sheet masks. Innisfree offers a vast range of different sheet masks all created with 100% natural ingredients. I have reviewed their Super Volcanic pore clay masks few weeks ago. I am addicted to the stuff.

While your skin might need purifying or decongesting, sometimes it might need more intense moisturising and nourishing. At slightly busy times, I would use sheet masks and at all other times, I might put on a sleeping mask.

 

image

Green Tea
Green tea is very popular in food/drinks, it is packed with anti-oxidants.
Imagine Green Tea Ice cream, green tea sponge cakes and we even have Green tea Kit-kat!
Green tea is a superfood, with great health benefits and fabulous in skincare.

Back to the review!
Official description: Real source Mask with fresh moisture squeezed from green tea that moisturises the skin to deep inside.
This mask smells very faintly of green tea, it is soaked in clear green tea essence (and all other ingredients such as glycerin, alcohol, grapefruit extracts). The mask itself is very comfortable to wear and it fits very well. I believe the cutting of the mask is very important and this Innisfree mask is really well cut! I felt that it kinda hugs my face!  The material is thin, soft but strong, so you won’t tear it apart accidentally. To use, you apply this mask on cleansed face and relax for 10 to 20 mins. You can wipe off excess essence with a clean cotton pad or massage it into your skin. I obviously left the excess essence in my face, I don’t mind as it gets absorbed quite quickly.

Afterwards, my skin feels moisturised and supple. The effects still look good on the day after.

I would recommend this mask for frequent use on normal, oily/combination skin. It might not be moisturising enough if your skin is ultra-dry. Then you might want to try the next mask!
Blackberries
Official description: Real source mask with moisture from squeezed blackberries that at full of nourishment to keep the skin healthy.
This mask smells like sweet berries, it contains creamy white essence and its a little bit thicker in consistency than the green tea version.
Again, this mask fits very well and the creamy essence feels very nourishing to the skin.
I would recommend this mask to people with normal to slightly dryer skin. Or if you’re oily to oily combination, you can still use this but you might not need to use it every day.
Pros:
Feels gentle and moisturising
Very well cut masks
Both versions of mask are moisturising (Blackberries one is more nourishing)

Cons:
Only readily available in Asia and maybe in some US based Korean skin care specialist stores.

Overall Score: 4 out of 5. I really enjoyed using these and would repurchase when I run out on them.

Thanks for reading and Happy Friday!

All feet to be treated the same! Quick unboxing of two Foot care boxes (Memebox Superbox #39 Footcare #2 and Superbox #77 Foot Therapy)

Do you neglect caring for your feet?
For me, I love my legs and feet, not because they’re beautiful or slender, in fact, they are far from that! But I care for my feet and legs because they never failed to get me where I want to be. I appreciate that alot…

When ordering these boxes, I was thinking of getting foot care products for certain person as x’mas presents! At least it is something useful and won’t go to waste!

The Foot Care #2 was received couple of months back during a restock, and I have picked up Foot Therapy recently.

 

Superbox #39 Foot Care 2

Memebox Footcare 2 - Unboxed @iamcherrylemon

“with shyan” Sugar Foot File 70g (?), RRP $12

Bog standard foot file, it physically remove hard skin on your feet by friction. I think I will utilise the foot peeling balm instead, I don’t like these foot file. Although, the file does look very nice in pink and light blue.

image

with shyan Sugar Remover (Memebox Footcare 2) @iamcherrylemon

 

“with shyan” Women Powder 10g, RRP $13

When I first unboxed this, I thought “what is women powder???”

This is a powder has a cherry blossom fragrance, aims to keep your feet silky smooth, oil free and odour less. Basically, talc powder with strong odour removal ability!?

 

image

Lahabitat JJ Cooling Foot Mist and with shyan Women Powder (memebox footcare 2) @iamcherrylemon

“with shyan” Women Cream 150ml, RRP $11

So again, “what is women cream??!”

This is a foot cream that’s enriched with cherry blossom extracts, it delivers intense hydration, nourishment on application. Suggested to use after foot scrub, for the feet to fully absorb the cream.

 

image

“koelf” Peeling Balm 40g. RRP $13

This is a moisturising balm for softening calluses on feet and even elbows.

 

“Lahabitat” JJ Foot Cooling Foot Mist 40ml, RRP $14

“Aromawiz” Spa Aroma Salt 50g, RRP $19

Received the Happiness option. You would use this like any other bath salt! I actually love soaking in salt baths, it is really relaxing and some bath salts such as Epsom salts great for muscle relaxation.

This pack of salt was made with sun-dried bay salt, essential oils and natural plant extracts.

 

Total retail value of the box is $85, the cost of the box was $23 plus shipping.

This is not a high value box but a very practical box indeed, as for most of us often neglect looking after your feet unless it is summer months!

 

 

Superbox #77 Foot Therapy
image

One of the newer foot care boxes, I picked this box up knowing I will have a happy recipient for this box. This seems to be a great box, everything you need to beautify your feet. You have products to remove old, dry harden skin, products for revealing *new* feet, product to maintaining the nicely polished feet and even products to keep them smelling sweet!

 

Okie here’s the box contents:

image

Memebox Superbox #77 Foot Therapy - Unboxed @iamcherrylemon

“Lassha” New Cool Foot v2 150ml, RRP$18

A feet freshener spray to eliminate bad odour and maintain foot hygiene. This can be used over barefoot, socks, and shoes. Not sure how effective it will be when sprayed over shoes.

 

“PureDerm” Callus Reducer Heel Patches Jojoba patches 4 packs, RRP $14

I have seen peeling foot masks, moisturising foot masks but not seen these heel patches. Heel patches are used for reduce callus build up on feet/heels. It repairs dry, cracked heels by infusing it with jojoba oil, eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil and shea butter.

These patches are to be used over dry cleaned feet overnight and rinsed with water in the next morning.

 

image

Purederm Callus Reducer Heel Patches and with Shyan Professional Foot File (memebox foot therapy) @iamcherrylemon

“with shyan” Professional Foot File RRP $9

This is a professionally crafted foot file, I am not a profession so I have no idea what a foot file needs to shape like but if I had to create one… it will shape like a normal one (just like this one?! hahaha

But this will come in handy for quick removal of hard skin on heels. I guess you cannot not have a foot file in a foot care box right? Good old on-the-spot hard skin removal, ready whenever you are!

 

“Mizon” Magic Peeling Foot Mask 40ml, RRP $11

Fabulous, another peeling mask for the feet! I have been offloading some feet peeling masks on FB groups as I made a double order on BNK!

This little guy will be going to the box recipient!

Like all foot peeling masks, you wear the flimsy plastic socks.. add the peeling liquid and wear them for around 1.5 hours. Rinse with water and pat dry. The hard skin should start to peel within days and after 5 day or so, the feet should be soft and hard-skin free.

 

image

Holika Holika Baby Silk Foor Mask and Mizon Magic Peeling Foot Mask (memebox foot therapy) @iamcherrylemon

“Holika Holika” Baby Silk Foot Mask 18ml, RRP $3

This is not a peeling mask. It is a normal foot mask  which aims to boost moisturise to the feet. This mask contains a blend of shea butter, urea, peppermint and aloe to nourish the feet.
To use, slip dry cleaned feet into the mask socks, wear for 15 to 20 minutes so the essence have enough time to penetrate into your skin.

 

“Holika Holika” Healing Nails Cuticle Oil 10ml, RRP $2

I have used cuticle oil for finger nails before, never realised or though I could and need to use this on my toe nails too. I guess it makes sense. But just need to remember to do so!

This cuticle oil is formulated with various plant extracts and it helps to nourish dry, cracked nails and soothing dead skin at the same time.

 

image

Lassha New Cool Foot spray and Holika Holika Healing Nails Cuticle Oil (Memebox Foot Therapy) @iamcherrylemon

“Calmia” Soft Foot Cream 100g, RRP $18

So after using the peeling mask and foot file, you will want something to keep your newly polished feet nice and soft, then you get this little foot cream by Calmia. This looks like a great cream, it contains shea butter (skin’s best friend!) and macadamia seed oil to repair skin. I love a good foot cream!

 

“Tonymoly” Shiny Foot Scrub Wash 100ml, RRP$7

To maintain fresh and polish feet, you can use a foot scrub regularly as it is more gentle then using a foot file on a daily basis. This Tonymoly version is formulated with peppermint extracts to freshen the feet. It gently buffs away dead skin cells and also work to moisturise the feet.

Foot boxes are not very high in value, the products are often very USEABLE. Then again, I haven’t heard of any anti-ageing products for the feet. Now, that’s an idea!

If people are looking after their faces and hands, surely their feet should get some treatments too!

 

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed this quick post.
