bB is not even close to being remotely a beauty blogger in any way, since she does not wear very much make-up. To be honest, I wear zero eye make-up because I find that most products irritate my eye area. Once in a very long while, I may put a little mascara on. I believe I have not done that since last August. I also find that wearing eye make-up seems to enhance my already-goldfish eyes in a very scary way. Obviously bB hasn’t put in the effort to learn how to put eye make-up on properly. :)
So! Make-up for bB consists of a mineral powder and blusher, both from Jane Iredale. I have always enjoyed this simple look and I think it works best for me.
But I do enjoy reading and watching Jen from From Head to Toe. I love her product reviews, especially for face, skin, hair, and whatever else that isn’t about eye make-up. LOL! She is a guru at make-up as well, and always looks impeccable. Her videos are very fun to watch!
In her recent Seven Deadly Sins entry, she mentioned the Lioele Blooming Glosses. Lipgloss is something bB does wear and actually enjoys wearing. After looking at her swatches here, bB looked at two more of her review entries on more Lioele products here and here, and was sold!
A week later, a little brown box arrived from Pretty and Cute.
Foam peanuts always remind me of my big sister in New York. We used to joke about how she would send me a big box of my stuff with a tonne of these foam peanuts which would get everywhere! LOL! Thankfully, this is a small box.
What a lovely sight! Lioele does pretty and cute packaging really well. <3
From left: Lioele Oil Paper Pact (this is a powder compact), Lioele Carry Me Blusher, Lioele Essential Donut Glo-Stick (a lipstick which feels like a lip balm), Lioele Blooming Glosses, Skin79 BB cream (free sample), and this ridiculous red bow thingy which I have absolutely no idea what to do with.
The Lioele Oil Paper Pact is so adorable. I have wanted to get myself a simple, fuss-free powder compact for a while now, to toss into my bag for just-in-case moments. Even though I have never had to touch up my face after using Jane Iredale (for several years now), I like the idea of having a (cheaper) powder compact in my bag anyway. And since I will be travelling next week, it seemed like a good time to get this.
Besides being adorable, the case looks like it will be fine with a bit of rough and tumble. Another deciding factor for me was that the sponge puff sits on a transparent flap, separating it from the powder. Love it. Very hygienic.
How cute is this blusher? It’s the Carry Me Blusher in Cutie Pink. I may or may not bring my Jane Iredale blusher and separate brush, so this will be very handy.
I loved the way this colour (Milky Pink) of the Essential Donut Glo-Stick looked on Jen, so I had to try it. I’ve already applied it once and it is quite awesome! Very smooth and moisturising, and the colour is perfect. On me, it is the my-lips-but-better sort of colour, which I always love. I will test this product further in Taiwan where it’s colder.
Here we have the Lioele Blooming Glosses which have gotten so many glowing reviews, not just from Jen but from other ladies as well (you can read reviews on the product page).
They do indeed smell as amazing as what everyone says! Can’t wait to test one out tomorrow when I go out for errands.
Pretty and Cute lets customers choose their preferred free sample with their orders. I think this is great – I always appreciate sites that do this, instead of sending something totally useless.
Which leads me to this red ribbon thingy. What in the world is this for? LOL! I might have to give it to my niece to play with.
