Coffret D’Or by Kanebo

October 20, 2009

I have to somehow, somewhat squeeze this brand in here and I can’t wait… I tried to look for a review on their mascara but none really came up so I hope I’ll do a review on it when I get the mascara end of the year or so…

Here’s their website COFFRET D’OR Kanebo and I just love its packaging, its design, its quality…

More about it later when I finally get the products, definitely be mascaras and eyeshadow. Don’t think I’ll be getting any of the foundation due to unmatching shade, since we don’t have Kanebo here in Australia (it’s only available in Asia *cries* ).

Briefly about the brand, it’s fairly new, not new new, but new. It’s the next thing after Kanebo discontinued T’estimo. Its packaging is luxurious and the line has a wide variety ranging from base makeup to the point makeup such as eyeshadows, oh they’re beautiful. Lipsticks, mascara base, makeup base, all sorts…

Brand message “How brightly will you shine?” hehe… very brightly! with coffret d’or!! beautiful name.. I’m pretty sure it means Golden Box in French. d’or – golden.

Here’s a sneakpeek:
The Eyeshadow Base (I want!)

Eyeshadow TD Eyes in 03 Khaki-Green Tones (I want!!)

LP Veil UV
– Formulated with Change Block Fixer
– Formulated with Poreless Powder

Hides shadows of pores for elegant skin with sheer translucency. This makeup base spreads on lightly for a perfect fit, improving the hold of foundation.

Hides shadows of pores for silkier skin, leading to an even finish with beautiful translucency.
Increases the adhesion of foundation, preventing makeup deterioration caused by sweat and sebum.

~~~ I’m curious now, maybe I should try this too… just look at the packaging ahhh

There are more, but do check out the range in their website HERE

Can’t wait to get my hands on this range!

Oh Gorgeous!

October 20, 2009

NOTE: This will be a start of just showing some of the girls that I find gorgeous, beautiful or just attractive or simply caught my eye, or looks that I can get inspired from.

I came across this photo just few minutes ago and I just thought to myself, “WOW! GORGEOUS!” She’s got the long loose wave black hair with piercing blue eyes and defined cheekbones, she just looks divine in that photo.. stunning. Who am I talking about?? No, it’s not Megan Fox (ugh, no.) No, it’s not Jessica Alba (she’s gorgeous, but I’m not talking about her..) she’s a new singer/songwriter called (do correct me if I’m wrong)

But hang on, I see her youtube is spelled as JADYN.. =S JadynMariaTV

I think it’s JADYN. Haha..
Oh, Ne-Yo signed her up!

I first saw her in one of the blogs I follow, check her out @ lollipop26 and it links to a pro make up artist Mario Dedivanovic’s BLOG

She even made a blog after they’ve done her makeup, check it out HERE

Thought I share it with you. I just simply adore the photo and the make up finish of it even though I know it’s nowhere ever going to be a look I can pull of, but who knows? =D

So yeah! Thought I’d share…

Almost forgot… here’s a photo of another gorgeous girl I recently encountered:


Isn’t she gorgeous? I think so.

Oh and I think I’d like this hairstyle:


ULTIMA II Wonderwear Longwearing

October 20, 2009

I found it today! OMG! I never really searched for it before, cause I thought it’s just not available here in Brisbane. Where? At Myer, Queens St, Brisbane City. I went “OMG!!”. You wanna know why? ’cause I used to use this years ago back in high school, but I bought it (it’s the Wonderwear Longwearing Liquid Foundation) from Indonesia, when I was back there years years ago. But after that, that’s it, I never came across Ultima II in years, and I thought I’d just never find it here in Australia. And I found it! Today! At Myer! The liquid foundation itself looks very much the same like the one I used to have. It costs AU$47. I’m still thinking whether I should give it a go again… I think I will.

Guess what, though? It’s being DISCONTINUED. Yup, no more. Easy come, easy go! Gee…

Sadly, I didn’t take a photo of it. But it comes in a nice bottle, sort of has a frosty/foggy look to the glass, with black cap, and oh it’s so hard to try to explain in words, but it has some bumps, like raised dots on the top of the bottle that gives it a distinguished look. It’s ok, when I finally get it I’ll edit this, and show you what I mean… I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s heard of Ultima II? Tell me if you have, or haven’t… and if you have, what you think of it.

If interested, here’s a brief review from MUA

EDIT Oh I found it, here’s a photo of what the bottle looks like, I quite like it, it has a nice grip, nice look to it.
