Monthly Favourites (Jan 2011) //每月至愛產品

I've been terribly sick for days, spent 3 whole days in bed and ate @#$%^&* kinds of medicine, am still recovering. I apologize for lagging behind the comments and stuff :( I realized that Chinese New Year is just around the corner, so I better get this post published, lol. I'll introduce these darlings which I have been using religiously in January.

大病了一場,在床上渡過三日三夜,嚴重跟不上blog同comments, 真的對不起. 我剛醒起還有數天便過農曆新年了, 都是趕快出埋post佢先 ^_^ 今次介紹既係本人今個月至愛用既產品 :D
1) DollyWink Pencil Liner in Brown:
Bought this at around $10 Euros. Application is effortless and smooth, high pigmentation and no serious smudging problem. I love the fact that it's deep brown so it looks very flattering on the eyes (versus the dramatic black...). Its quality is on par with Urban Decay 24/7 Liners! (full review to come later :))

DollyWink深啡色眼線鉛筆:
以$99左右購入. 劃得非常順暢, 我喜歡它深啡色, 比黑色自然很多. 上色度高, 沒有嚴重脫色問題. 個人覺得質量可以媲美Urban Decay 24/7 系列的眼線筆! (詳細評語容後再post :))

2) Chacott loose settling powder in #763 Translucent
I've seen this powder appearing over and over again in Japanese magazines, and was finally able to locate a shop that sells this in store. What should I say? After trying this, I don't want to look at any other loose powder (just kidding lol). Chacott is a company that makes stage cosmetics for ballet school and the quality of this loose powder is superb, the powder is finely milled. It controls oil decently and keeps my makeup fresh throughout the day. (full review to come later)

Chacott 定妝碎粉 (#763 透明色)
經常在日本雜誌看到的妝品, 終於比我找到在那裡有得買了. 只要試過之後, 其他碎粉都看不上眼了 (說笑). Chacott幫一間芭蕾舞學校設計的舞台化妝, 呢隻碎粉品質非常高, 質感細滑, 控油一流, 個妝真係可以保持到好耐. (詳細評語容後再post :))

3) LUSH Angels On Bare Skin Face Cleanser (潔面)
If you don't mind the herbal scent, this is a superb cleanser and exfoliator for face! I've been using it religiously ever since I bought it. It made my face feel so refreshing after I use it. There are lavender particles in it and it helps to exfoliate too! (full review here)

如果你不介意香草味的話 (註: 不是薄荷味), 呢隻洗面膏係好好既選擇. 裡面有薰衣草同玫瑰粒子, 洗面之餘可以做埋磨砂. 每次洗完面都覺得好fresh, 自從買了它回家便一直使用了. (詳細評語)
4) Essential Ultra Honey & Shea Butter Hair Mask (Nuance Airy)
This hair mask is the best buy of the month, lol. It's affordable and smells like honey. I've been using it for numerous times since I bought it 2 weeks ago, it makes my hair baby soft :) I've been doing lots of blow-drying to my hair recently and this is a perfect product to repair damaged bits. (full review HERE)

這瓶 hair mask超抵買, 平之餘好好用. 前排經常性吹頭, D頭髮好粗糙好乾. 買了這個 hair mask兩星期後我 keep 住用, 頭髮變返柔順, 軟滑, 聞落仲好香! (詳細評語)
5) Orbis Foam Esthe Pack (warm foam mask) 暖暖泡沫面膜

I got this when Stellar and I went to shopping in our last beauty blogger meetup in December. I have been a loyal user of Orbis skincare and I can't believe I discover this gem so late! The mask comes in a metal bottle, with an airtight pump on top. The foam is white and when applying it on your face you'll feel a tiny warming sensation. It's like mousse. This product leaves my face VELVETY SMOOTH!!! The best part? Only 5 minutes is needed, lol. (full review HERE)

去年十二月和Stellar的beauty blogger meetup時買的. 我用了 Orbis的Skincare已經三年有多, 很難相信現在才發現它!!! 嘎出黎既泡沫有點像mousse的質地, 上面後有暖暖的感覺, 用完皮膚好似絨布咁滑. 只需 5分鐘乍~ (詳細post請按此)
6) Shu Uemura Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation//植川秀粉底液
This liquid foundation has medium coverage and is scented. It blends well and is perfect for winter.

這支粉底液遮瑕度OK, 容易推開, 冬天用至岩.
7) MAC Viva Glam x Lady Gaga lipstick // MAC Viva Glam x Lady Gaga唇膏
Gives my lips the perfect pink. I was worried that the nude and pale pink would wash me out, but I found it works eventually. I can't live without it now.

完美的粉紅色. 起初擔心會令我變得面無血色, 後來慢慢work了, 現在沒有了它便不行了.

  10. Ah it's illness season! My brother has gotten sick too recently..I hope it doesn't spread lol Would be terrible to be such during the holidays >__< Hope you get well soon!

    I've tried to dollywink pencil eyeliner in black. I don't know if it's just me but it smudges so easily! I've found the liquid version in a beauty store in chinatown. I wonder if I should pay the price for it :\
    The lipstick color looks great on you! It seemed to bright/pale when others showed it.

  15. Thanks so much for sharing! I felt an intense craving for all of them. I bought a Shu uemura hairmask this summer which I have completely fallen in love with. It's fantastic for long, thick hair like mine. Love your blog:-)

  16. I'm sorry to hear that you've been so sick! Take care and get lots of rest. Don't overdo it when you start feeling better because you can get a relapse.

    I'm looking forward to all of your future reviews on the products that you have listed.

  26. That's awesome! : D Which colors are u gonna get? I heard that Perversion is really pretty and much more black than Zero..
    Oh, and gyaru is a Japanese fashion style. Tsubasa Masuwaka is VERY known for taking a huge role in it.. It's all about nice clothes, lots of accessories, faux fur, cute pink dolly outfits, big hair, lashes, circle lenses and long nails. xD Haha

  29. I can relate, sick days = no fun. Except for being able to go online and read blogs - that is an upside! Feel better soon!

    So jealous you live in HK - all my relatives live there but haven't gone back for over 8 years due to school & now work. *sad face*

    Love all these products - wish they were easier to access in US, but seems like only online! (have never used hair mask, wonder how it works???)

    Favorite products this month = JILL STUART Blush & NYX lippies!

    I love Mac's Gaga on you, I had so underestimated this lipstick!

    Hope you're feeling better now

  39. Jen, that hint of pink looks like a doll on your lips! Lovely!

    Shu Uemura beauty is simply amazing, right? Shu price points in my country are way too jacked up. I've tried this fluid foundation and it gave my face a healthy, natural glow.

    That dollywink liner intrigues me. too bad we don't have it here.

    thanks for sharing these fab items!

  40. Great favourites for January! Can't wait for your Nuance Airy review, I've been on the hunt for a good hair mask, but in drugstores where I am there's very few of them available... PLUS they probably smell like chemicals =S

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love AOBS and VG Gaga as well! Happy CNY Jen :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the look of MAC Viva Glam X Lady Gaga on you..! it looks really lovely..^^
    Aah, dolly wink is very cute! I'm eyeing their pen eyeliner though..have you tried kiss me eyeliner? they're cheaper (Sasa in Malaysia) but I haven't tried them myself..hee..
    thanks for the sharing your fav! ^^
