Perfume Wishlist

Hey cuties!

I have been eyeing for some perfumes that i am meaning to try out. Everybody knows how obsessed i am with perfumes. So i decided to create a wishlist which i would hopefully buy for myself this coming Christmas.

DOLCE & GABBANA Dolce Perfume for Women

dolce

Feminine and fresh, Dolce&Gabbana Dolce embodies the delicate balance between timeless craftsmanship and innovation in the art of perfumed composition. Dolce is one’s personal touch, signature scent. It epitomises the simplicity of a result obtained thanks to a complex process: the same one needed to create a finely-embroidered dress. “The nobility of the soul, the elegance of every day gestures, the joy of sharing from generation to generation, and the effortless perfection of a single white flower. This is the picture of Sicily that I carry within me, and the one captured in this delicate fragrance” says Domenico Dolce.

I am in love with their d&g light blue so when i tried the dolce tester in the counter, i already got swayed with the delicate scent of it plus the bottle is so cute and feminine.

Jadore Perfume by Christian Dior for Women

jadore

J’adore Eau de Parfum is an invented bouquet, finely crafted down to the last detail, like a custom-made flower. Essence of Ylang-Ylang from the Comoros unfurls its floral-fruity notes and instills a soft exotic touch. Damascus Rose, sophisticated and exuberant, then comes to warm the senses. Last but not least, a duo of Jasmines echo one another in a perfect embrace. Jasmine Grandiflorum from Grasse, the quintessence of a noble floral, exudes its delicate sensuality, tinged with fruit and sun to lend it a jammy character. It works in harmony with the more carnal quality of Indian Jasmine Sambac, “”flower of the gods””, with its warm facets of incredibly sensual and enveloping orange blossom.

This is the perfume of my colleague before, and she will always get tons of compliments in the office whenever she uses it. I remembered trying it out and fell in love instantly.

Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste

omnia

Bvlgari presents a new floral fragrance inspired by the precious iridescence of the amethyst: The essence of Omnia Amethyste is as precious and delicate as the scent of iris and rose gardens caressed with the morning dew. Elegant and refined, Omnia Amethyste is dedicated to the young woman who expresses herself through an enveloping, yet fresh fragrance. Her graceful personality reflects the combination of pure and authentic notes while the amethyst, symbol of balance, evokes her noble spirit full of grace and harmony. Her strong femininity reveals itself through her discreet sensuality.

This is a perfume that my roommate loves so much. It almost smells like the d&g light blue, i love how fresh yet elegant the scent is. I have been meaning to purchase one, hopefully soon.

The Body Shop Mini Haul

Hey cuties! Been busy at work.

So, I’m back with a short post of my mini haul. I just finished my cosrx propolis ampoule, so I decided to check out a new serum in the bodyshop. And luckily, they have a buy 3 plus 1 offer.

Here are the products that i got, sorry for a very bad lightning.

I have tried the serum and vitamin c moisturizer today.

As instructed by the sales associate, i just need to use 2 drops of the serum followed by the vitamin c moisturizer. The moisturizer is the same texture of their vitamin e moisturizer but a bit more gelly.

I will try it in a few months and will post a review., watch out for that.

Let me know if you have tried any of these products and share your experience.

That’s it for now cuties!

New Skin Care Haul

Hey cuties!

So lately, I have been experiencing extremely dry skin in the past few weeks. I decided to try out new skin care items to heal this flaking out skin.

Check out below to see the products i got.

Desert Essence Tea Tree Replenishing Shampoo

Yeah, even my scalp has been acting up so i decided to pick up this tea tree shampoo.

• Helps restore moisture balance to hair and scalp
• Adds shine while helping to reduce flaking
• Deeply cleanses without stripping hair’s natural emollients

The natural medicinal properties of Eucalyptus are formulated with powerful, yet gentle Australian Tea Tree Oil to help bring healing to a flaking scalp. Aromatic Peppermint Oil offers reviving, cooling comfort while Yucca conditions for a shiny, beautiful finish.

desertessence.com

It is clear colored and not at all drying, it didn’t help much on the flaking of my scalp but i can really see and feel that it really cleanses my hair and scalp. It is an okay product, not sure if i am going to repurchase it.

Grahams Natural Body Wash

Grahams Body wash contains a Lipid Layer enhancer which helps restore lost oils in the skin and helps to moisturize while you cleanse. Formulated for those who suffer from sensitive skin Excellent for the whole family!

nutrientavenue.com.au

Ingredients:

Purified Water, Capric/caprylic Glucoside, Lauroamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl (Plant Derived), Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate (Naturally Derived), Manuka Honey, Coco Glucoside (Derived From Coconut Oil & Sunflower Oil) Citric Acid, Coconut, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Orange Peel Extract, Bitter Orange Flower Extract, Sclerotium Gum.

This is one of the best purchase i have ever ever did in my life! lol. That is not overacting, because i really love this body wash. Its maybe because i love oils in general. It’s literally a mix of oils in one bottle. And it lathers pretty well too. Made my skin so soft, moisturized and it also healed my back acne.

Grahams Natural Moisturising Lotion

For best results apply whilst skin is still moist (after bath or shower). Massage gently into skin. Rapidly absorbed to deliver long lasting softness and protection. Suitable for all skin types.

nutrientavenue.com.au

I use this on my body right after shower, it is unscented and very rich. Though i also use another lotion after when i get out the shower and a separate sunscreen, i feel the hydrating effect on my skin.

Desert Essence Gentle Stimulating Facial Scrub

• Gently removes dead skin cells
• Stimulates skin for a rosy, fresh complexion
• Helps unclog pores for improved skin health

Natural exfoliators Jojoba Seed, Almond, and Oat gently buff your skin and leave it fresh, clean, and feeling invigorated. Soothing Aloe Vera and Cucumber Extracts give your complexion a smooth radiance you can see and feel.

desertessence.com

I am used to using st. ives apricot scrub for the longest time. And it is really doing a great job. But i wanted to try other product that is gentler than st. ives. So i picked up this one again from desert essence.

It comes a small tub, the product is all packed in there like clay. Consistency is so thick and the exfoliating beads are smaller than st. ives. It is definitely gentler, scrubs off dead skin cells, leaving skin smooth and soft but doesn’t dry it out. Perfect right? plus, it is unscented!

Love Jojo Milk Protective Spray SPF 90+++

I tried searching this on google but couldn’t find any. I just saw this in one of the stalls in the mall. It has a milky consistency and has a subtle scent.

In the packaging it says:

Prevents skin from being damaged by ultraviolet rays, without any worry about skin exposure to the sun, make the skin moist and bright.

At the back, it mentions that it is Made in P.R.C (People’s Republic of China) and the factory name is Shantou Bomei Cosmetics Co., Ltd. Honestly, i didn’t even ask the lady where it came from, i was in a hurry at that time and it was actually cheap for the size so i just grabbed it.

The product is okay, it spreads well and has a very runny consistency. It doesn’t feel greasy or tacky at all, i kind of like it actually.

Johnson’s Vita Rich Body Wash with Yogurt, Peach & Coconut

Delight your senses with this luxurious body wash enriched with yogurt concentrate, honey and oats. Infused with a cosy fragrance, it nourishes and comforts dry skin keeping it comfortable for 24-hours.
I have been eyeing this body wash, every time that i am in a supermarket i will always pick it up. But for some reasons, it doesn’t end up with me in the cash counter, lol.
So, finally i bought it and to my surprise, i didn’t like it. It dried out my skin and smell is not what i expected. So i just used it twice, and i stopped. Good thing i just bought the 250ml and not the big one.
Sorry i do not have any photos, because it is already in my luggage.

Dove Nourishing Secrets Hand Cream Invigorating Ritual

• Nourishing Dove hand cream with Avocado oil and Calendula extract

• Inspired by the rituals of Central American women

• Improves the long term skin quality of dry hands

• The best hand cream with a fast-absorbing formula instantly softens hands

• Dove hand cream leaves hands instantly supple and smooth, for beautiful skin

• Dermatologically tested

For uplifting, moisturising care, turn to Dove Nourishing Secrets hand cream with avocado and calendula extract. It’s inspired by the beauty skin rituals of real women in Central America, who have used both avocado and calendula for their skin revitalizing properties for years.

dove.com

I looooove the scent of this hand cream and it is very hydrating. Very rich and thick consistency, perfect for my extremely dry skin. A really must try, will repurchase for sure.

Garnier Natural Honey Flower Gel Wash 

NOURISHING BOTANICAL GEL WASH WITH HONEY FLOWER

Garnier’s first face wash made with 96% ingredients of natural origin, enriched with Honey Flower, known for its nourishing properties. It efficiently removes impurities and pollution while leaving dry skin feeling nourished and perfectly comforted. 

This is an okay product, it doesn’t dry out my skin when i uses it. There is no lather, just a gel wash but i think it gets the job done.

How to have smooth and white skin overall?

Supplements

Drinking supplements such as Collagen, Hyaluronic acid, Vitamins A, C and E and Glutathione, can immensely help with skin smoothening and whitening. Treating the skin from within should be the start of your skin journey.

  • Collagen promotes skin elasticity and skin moisture, promote glowing, vibrant skin.
  • Vitamin A increases cell reproduction and stimulates collagen production, Vitamin C helps prevent damage to cells, thus facilitating the production of elastin and Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects skin cells and helps maintain moisture.
  • Hyaluronic acid, or sodium hyaluronate, is undoubtedly one of the best supplements for beautiful skin. This compound has incredibly strong moisture-retaining properties, so it’s no wonder that it helps keep your skin looking young. 
  • Glutathione acts as an important antioxidant in your body, involved in many processes in the body, including tissue building and repair, making chemicals and proteins needed in the body, and for the immune system. And taking it in a long run helps in lightening the skin.

Recommended products:

 

Soaps

When it comes to skin whitening soap, the most effective ingredients are Alpha Arbutin, Kojic Acid, Papaya Enzyme or Licorice Extract.

Recommended products:

 

 

Lotions or creams

It may contain the same ingredients as the soaps, i used whitening lotion in the evening and a hydrating lotion in the morning to combat the dryness of skin whitening ingredients. Get a lotion or cream with moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil or olive oil.

Recommended products:

 

Exfoliate

Exfoliation helps a lot with your skin, removing dead skin cells making the skin absorbs better the skin products making it work more effectively. Also, it smoothens the skin and making it suppler to touch. It is recommended once or twice a week.

Recommended products:

 

Spot treatment

For more stubborn dark spots that are harder to lighten, it may require stronger ingredients. I recommend gentle skin peeling or microdermabrasion then applying bleaching creams in the area. After the treatment, maintain by applying diluted lemon juice in the area 2x a week.

Recommended products:

 

Sunblock

The most important of all these steps is protecting your skin from the sun. Skin whitening ingredients makes you more susceptible to the harmful rays of the sun. Be sure to use an umbrella and a high SPF lotion or sunscreen.

Nail Polishes That I Currently Love

Hi cuties!

I want to show you the nail polishes that i am currently using, my favorite brands at the moment and shades that i am currently loving.

OPI Natural Nail Base Coat

2

  • Base coat for regular lacquer shades
  • Promotes a longer lasting manicure

https://www.opi.com/

OPI Top Coat

1

  • Protects natural nail
  • Prevents smudging
  • Creates shining finish

https://www.opi.com/

OPI Top Coat prevents smudges while drying to a smooth, high-gloss protective shine. OPI Top Coat is applied after you’ve finished painting your nails, to create a shining finish.

I am used to applying only nail polishes without base and top coat that’s why the polishes chips so fast. It is also looking very dull on the nails. But with this top coat, any nail polish can look nice and shiny, lasts longer on the nails. I highly recommend this base and top coat from OPI.

OPI Nail Lacquer – Samoan Sand

4

A warm beige-pink nail polish.

  • Infinite Shine is a 3-step system which provides up to 11 days of wear and gel-like shine.
  • You certainly won’t want to hide your toes in the sand with this lovely nude lacquer.
  • A neutral look that works with a wide variety of skin tones.
  • Made in the USA. 

https://www.opi.com/

This is a nude nail polish, it is like wearing nothing on the nails. My bf loves this color, he said it is looking very elegant and sophisticated.

OPI Nail Lacquer – Lincoln Park After Dark

5

Where midnight meets purple.

  • Nail lacquer is the original nail polish formula that reinvented quality nail color, your top choice if you enjoy updating your manicure weekly.
  • This aubergine is as deep as evening shadows in Lincoln Park.
  • A near-black purple, this color is ready for neighborhood night life.
  • Made in the USA.

https://www.opi.com/

This color is a deep dark purple that almost appear as black. I like wearing this usually on my toe nails.

FOREVER52 Power Nail Polish – PNP024

12

No description in their website

When i saw this displayed on the counter, i instantly bought it. I feel lady-like whenever i wear this polish. It is very easy to apply and lasts a decent amount of time. The only downside is that the color tends to look discolored and dull on the 3rd or 4th day, giving it a grimy look so i always ends up removing them.

Gucci Bold High Gloss Nail Lacquer – #160 Dark Romance

10

The bold high-gloss lacquer combines a state of the art formula and an innovative brush for a luxurious manicure experience. the specialized triangular-bristle brush provides impeccable, even coverage with each stroke, while the pigment-saturated nail polish results in a glossy, high-shine look.

https://www.temptalia.com/

If i had to pick one out of all the nail polish on this list, it has to be this. The color is amazing for both toe and finger nails. You can never go wrong with this color. It is a deep red almost maroon shade. Complements my skin tone very well. It is a kind of red that is perfect for any occasion, from date nights to an everyday wear.

Essence the gel nail polish

11

Dream-nails are easy to achieve with the essence nail polishes! the special, innovative formula of the gel nail polishes provides the nails with a long-lasting and high-shine gel finish. the nail polish range offers intensive colours united with perfect coverage in lots of trendy shades like lime, light pink, grey, metallic bronze, pink or black.

https://essencemakeup.com/

I couldn’t find the shade that I have on their website, but i have this dark gray and i had a lighter gray (that i already finished so i threw it the bottle away).

I generally love gray colored nail polish, it is looking funky and elegant at the same time. But this polish from Essence is long-lasting and so easy to apply. I am planning to purchase more colors from this brand because I really love the formula, plus it is so cheap!

That’s it for today’s blog cuties!

Review: Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream

missha bb cream

Hey cuties!

As promised, here is the review of the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. If you haven’t seen my recent post, click here to see my iherb mini haul.

So I have been searching for a good Korean BB cream, I have seen a lot of youtubers raving for this for years now. I have been using the Garnier BB cream just because it is locally available in any supermarkets. I have used it for years, and then I completely switched to foundations. But months of using foundation everyday, I felt like my skin is getting more dry and dull.

I decided to switched back to BB creams. And since Missha has been one of the first when it comes to bb cream and countless good reviews on blogs and youtube, I decided to try it.

It is a bit expensive in malls and other online stores, thankfully iherb.com offers authentic brands in a cheaper price tag.

Product                 : Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++
Size                        : 50ml
Price                      : $22 in misshaus.com or $14.85 iherb.com
Shades                  : #21 Light Beige
Other shades available:
#23 Natural Beige
#25 Warm Beige
#29 Caramel Beige
#31 Golden Beige
39468313_277087439559323_7069798138113949696_n

Recommended for:

– Concealing blemishes, dark circles, and discoloration
– Visibly minimizing fine lines & redness
– Brightening and evening skin tone
– Hydrating dewy coverage
– Naturally flawless finish
– UV Protection

This is my bareface:

39385792_697786860558525_1400696772048715776_n

BB Cream just applied:

39407852_517774488693570_4943803366842040320_n

After 1 hour of application, it is becoming oily in the nose area. But other areas are dewy and looking really nice.

39441440_306492793233283_4586500763995340800_n

39337296_286606428808776_3773226033365385216_n

After almost 6 hours on my face, It was okay though there haven’t any coverage left. I felt that the cream has melted on my skin. I won’t blame it to the product as it is really humid and hot nowadays.

39408905_728994104106697_4430253981230432256_n

And this is my face after 10 hours, I took a selfie just before taking the make-up off.

39387667_229264137737395_2410384660681981952_n

Pros:

  • It is lightweight
  • Coverage is light to medium, perfect for everyday
  • Gives a natural, dewy and brightening look on the skin
  • It has high SPF
  • Packaging is a plus because of the pump

Cons:

  • Strong perfumery scent – but it fades after a few minutes
  • It gets really oily on humid days
  • has a gray cast on the first hour – but fades after sometime

Overall:

It is a good bb cream, I felt the grayish seems to fade after 1 hour on the face. The shade was definitely too light for me. But with the right shade I think it could work out. It is lightweight and comfortable to wear. It is a good bb cream for everyday use. It didn’t dry out my face. The dewines is nice on the face but not on the nose area, I blotted a couple of times on the t zone.

Will i repurchase?

Yes!

 

Have you tried it yet and how is it? Do you have any other bb cream to share?

Just comment below. 🙂

 

 

Iherb.com Mini Haul Part 2

Hi cuties! I’m back with another mini haul from iherb.com!

Check-out my first iherb.com mini haul here.

I was looking out for a nice BB cream and one of the best reviews I found are for the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. I have seen this in malls and online shops but it was a little bit expensive. But finding out that i can get it for a cheaper price in iherb.com made me just order it right away.

iherb haul 2

I also ordered a collagen powder and a coconut oil so that i can take advantage of the delivery fee. So, here goes my mini haul.

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++ in No. 21

I have seen a lot of good reviews on this product, by both local and international beauty vloggers. It is a Korean brand and one of the first to release this kind of cream. It comes in a tube with a pump, i love how sleek the packaging is. It’s Dermatologist tested and against animal testing.

Full review of this product here.

Doctor’s Best Pure Collagen Types 1 and 3 Powder

I have never tried a collagen powder or supplements before because i heard about the after taste and it is difficult to swallow. But at my age, i am looking for something to help me get back the glow and youthful look that i had when i was on my early 20’s. And since collagen has been known for that purpose, i started researching for a good brand.

I know, i know. This isn’t a very well known brand, the one that has good reviews is the Neocell. But since the price was out of the budget at the moment, i looked for the 2nd best thing. And this one from Doctor’s Best has some decent amount of good reviews, so why not give it a shot.

I will definitely update you on this, so again, watch-out for that review.

Cococare 100% Coconut Oil

When it comes to coconut oil, it really doesn’t matter which brand it is.

I have been using coconut oil for my hair and skin and is one of a staple on my beauty regime since college.

I remember when i was still studying, i used to slather coconut oil all over my body and hair as hair mask. I would let it sit on my skin and hair for an hour before taking a regular bath. I do this almost once a week, and that’s the one of the reason why my skin was supple during those times. Unfortunately, i do not have the time to do it anymore. But still, coconut oil is one of my favourite oil.

So that’s it for now cuties!

Current Skin Care Routine

Hey there cuties! I am back to write about my current skincare routine.

I am a type of a lady that loves trying out new products from time to time. But when i love one product, i will stick to it for many years.

I love taking care of my skin, even on my younger days i always find myself searching products in malls or online shops. I have always been fond of online shopping, i would save my college allowance just to shop for skin care items!

Anyway, let me show you the products that I’m currently using for my face.

Cleanse

Okay, so for cleansing i only use Dove cream soap. I don’t know but face cleansers usually dry out my face and just irritates. I sorted out in just using the Dove cream soap  because it is so mild and never gave me any problems.

Scrub

I scrub my face once a week, as i have a sensitive skin and i feel that once a week is enough to remove dead skin cells. I am using St. Ives Apricot Scrub, for as long as i can remember. I tried other brands before, but i felt some are way too gentle and others just too harsh to my skin.

Face mask

I love face mask in general, whether its sheet mask, peel-off mask, wash-off mask or sleeping mask. I tried and loved many brands but this one from Queen Helene is a favorite. I’ve been using Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque since college. It is a wash off mask with a cooling effect on the skin. I used to by this in Healthy Options when im in the Philippines but in UAE you can it here.

When it comes to sheet masks, i love the Etude House, Tony Moly and Innisfree ones. Check out these adorable Animal Face Mask Nourishing Smoothing Moisturizing Whitening Masks.

Serums

cosrx propolis light ampoule

I just recently tried a serum, because a friend gave me a vitamin C serum which just oxidised after about a month or so. It was an okay product, i didn’t notice any noticeable difference. So, i checked out some other serums and found that propolis is getting popular especially in Korean skin cares. I checked some brands online and ended up buying the Cosrx Light Ampoule, which I’am currently in love with.

You can also buy this ampule and other Cosrx products in YesStyle.

Day Moisturizer

I have been using this Olay Natural White Day Cream for years now, maybe over 8 or 9 years. Though i have tried other day creams, i always go back to this cream. It’s inexpensive and does the job well, moisturises and protects skin from the sun with SPF 24.

Night Moisturizer

I have tried a lot of night moisturizers, from Olay, Lóreal, Garnier, L’occitane (see my post here, trying out some L’occitane products), the body shop, etc.. but i haven’t found my holy grail night cream. But I’m currently using the aloe vera gel from The Face Shop. I finished the one from the Natures Republic and loved it. So i thought of trying other brands, as i have been seeing a lot of brands coming out with their aloe vera gels.

Eye Cream

garnier

For day time, i am using the Garnier eye roll-on, it de-puffs and freshens my under eyes especially on days that i cried a night before or i had a late night sleep. I have been using it for years and years, since i was in college!

For night time, this Clinique All About Eyes Rich nourishes and moisturizes my skin under the eyes. See my full review on this product here. I have been using this for like 7 months now, and there’s still a lot of product. It is definitely worth the money.

Lip Scrub

This lip scrub is from tony moly, i bought it together with the Cosrx Propolis Light Ampoule in my iherb.com mini haul. Honestly, i have been searching for a lip scrub for a very long time now. I couldn’t seem to find any (i know Lush has one but it is too expensive). So i was so happy to find this and as expected, i liked it. It scrubs off dry dead skin, as my lips tends to dry off a lot. This product really helped even using it only once a week.

Lip Balm

lip balm the body shop

I tried alot of lip balms, good and bad ones. So i am not very particular with the brand, as long as it does what it is supposed to do. Currently, I’m using the The Body Shop Vitamin e lip balm. I use it in the morning before lipsticks and evening before sleeping.

Related post: Favorite Lip Products

Spot treatment

Medacint

I occasionally get pimples, especially when on my period. I just apply a clindamycin topical gel twice a day and my pimple will dry out and flattens in less than 2 days. If I’m not using this, a tea tree oil or salicylic acid is very effective too.

In addition to this, I’m using a nose strip once a week for my blackheads. I usually use the brand Cool and Cool or Biore. Other than that, i don’t really use any other products. It is because i want to keep my skin care routine as simple as possible.

But I’m still on the hunt for a good night moisturiser, so i would appreciate if you can also give out your suggestions in the comment section below.

 

That’s it for now cuties!

Love Lots!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter Contour Palette – Swatches

Hi cuties! I am back with another swatches. It will be short a blog but sweet.

I just started using this contour palette from Urban Decay Naked Skin Collection. It is called the shapeshifter. I must admit that when i first saw this palette, i was really inlove with the packaging. The palette is so nicely compact, so sleek and very convenient to use.

Excerpt from their website:

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Naked Skin Shapeshifter is more than a contour kit. This three-in-one complexion palette provides everything you need to contour, color-correct and highlight. One side contains powders (three for contouring and one pearl shade for highlighting), and the other holds creams (two for contouring, two for color-correcting and one pearl shade for highlighting).

Available in two color ways that span the complexion spectrum—Light Medium Shift for light to medium skin tones and Medium Dark Shift for medium to dark skin tones—Naked Skin Shapeshifter has everybody covered. If you fall somewhere in the middle, mix the shades in either palette to create your own custom tones. You can even layer the powder and cream formulas to achieve a longer-wearing, more intense effect.

Naked Skin Shapeshifter is contouring the Naked way. Every shade is blendable, buildable and forgiving—so your skin still looks like skin. We curated a range of shades and textures for the flexibility to create any look. The medium and dark contour shades allow you to achieve any level of contouring, from subtle shaping to more intense, sculpted effects. The color correctors neutralize dark areas under the eyes for a wide-awake look. The light contour shades and highlighters enable you to bring light to the high points of the face—for glowing, youthful-looking Naked skin.

Our powders are finely milled for an ultra-silky feel and a clean finish. The creams blend into the skin for a seamless finish—giving you the best of both worlds.

Naked Skin Shapeshifter comes in a super-sleek, travel-ready case with a dimensional, “contoured” effect. Slim enough to take with you, this palette is still packed with nine shades. A double-sided mirror separates the powders from the creams and keeps them clean and mess-free.

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

Fill Weight:

Cream (Crème) 5 x 2.15 g POIDS NET/NET WT. 5 x 0.07 oz

So its not just a contour palette, aside from contouring powders and creams, it has color correcting creams and highlighting cream and powders too.

It comes with two palette shades:

Light Medium Shift and Medium Dark Shift

I got the Light Medium Shift, because i have a medium skin tone.

Below is the powder side:

Here are the swatches:

And below is the cream side:

So that’s it guys, watch out for a detailed review of this palette! If you have tried this palette, don’t forget to share your thoughts on the comment below.

Bye for now! 😊
