Review: ICHIKAMI Hair Mask

ICHIKAMI Hair Mask is one of the Japan 2009 @ Cosme Award products. I read some good reviews few months ago but didn't know where to buy it till I suddenly found it in one of the local Watsons stores. I was so excited and grabbed it without second thought, it never disappointed me.

I almost finished the whole bottle and it's time to write a review of it now.

EOTD: Nars Kalahari - Brown, Purple and Green

Summer comes to the end, fall is around the corner ....

I got Nars duo kalahari months ago, but it's the first time I use it, it ever disappointed me. This duo contains two different brown colors, both with subtle shimmer and silky texture. The left one is lighter neutral caramel and the right one is darker purple-taupy brown.

Products I used:
  • Nars Kalahari 
  • Nars Jolie Poupee
  • Bobbi Brown eyeliner gel
  • Freshlook contact lens
  • Makeup brushes
  • Ardell false lashes
This look was inspired by a picture from a magazine.
I applied the left color from Kalahari on my entire eyelid, the the right one on the crease area as well as outer corner of the eye. Then blend the edge of crease area up to the eyebrow area using the left color. Applied the violet shimmer from NARS Jolie Poupee on the inner corner using a pencil brush (M.A.C 239 or MakeUpShow 5E05)

The look with green contact lens from Freshook. I really like this color match.

Swatches: Nars Muitiple Tint - Beverly Hills, Cadaqués and Turks & Caicos

Nars Launched Multiple Tints (limited edition) early this summer.  I finally managed to got them 4 months later!

Bright yet translucent tints give cheeks and lips a sheer, buildable pop of color. The multi-purpose tool can be worn alone for flush cheeks or stained lips.
                                                           - narscosmetics

The packaging is little bit different, where "NARS" is printed in color to match the color of each multiple.

This multiple tint collection comes with three shades:
  • Turks & Caicos – Bright Orange
  • Beverly Hills – Bright Red
  • Cadaqués – Bright Fuchsia
The texture of these new multiples is very different from the original one. They are less creamy and oily, feels watery and not sticky at all. They are very easy to apply and the end result is natural and pretty.

Swatches: Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds

Maybelline has launched a new line of  Hyper Diamond Shadow palettes recently. I passed by Watsons this evening and lucky my camera was with me.

There is no doubt that it is a super shiny eyeshadow collection, just like its name "Hyper Diamonds". They launched four shades: Gray (GY-1), Brown (BR-1), Purple (WN-1) and Green (GN-1). I personally love GY-1 more than the rest, the smoky eyes MU shown in the poster looks amazing!

Each palette contains five colors, with different textures:
