Makeup Sale #6

Ok, so last week I made an order through for some Kevin Beautymaker skincare products, popularly raved by Fuz. I bought the Skin Repair Wakening Gel, the Aquamarine Hydrating Serum, Aquamarine Hydrating Lotion (which I stupidly thought was a toner since some Asian companies call toner, lotion), and Aqua Eye Concealer in Shade #1 Bright.

Many were not available through the site but after emailing Betty, she updated and made them available for purchase again. Thank you so much Betty, great customer service!! :)

This is the Aqua Eye Concealer in Shade #1. I really like the consistency, it's really smooth and light and melts into the skin!

The first pic is my eye with no makeup on and no concealer. The second pic is with the Beautymaker concealer on the undereye area. I think it's pretty nice and brightens up the eye area.

Here is my favorite lipstick at the moment, for the Beauty Swatch Giveaway contest.
It is Clinique Color Surge Bare Brilliance lipstick in Pink Beach (22).
A swatch of the lipstick: very sheer with golden and silver shimmers and close to my natural lip color. The consistency of the lipstick is really smooth and moisturizing. I think this is a sample size lipstick so I'm not really sure on the availability of this shade.

This is a swatch of the lipstick on my arm.

Hey Mika!

Is the Aqua Eye Concealer in Shade #1 a pink-ish/salmon shade?

Oh, I would have thought that it's a toner as well, so I assume the lotion is an emulsion type?


the lippie looks great!

yay, another giveaway!
