Review: Shiseido Lacquer Gloss

For today, I will be giving a review on a lip product that I got during the Sip & See of Shiseido’s SS2014 Collection: the Shiseido Lacquer Gloss. 😀

Product Description (printed on the box of the product):

Product Description (taken from the Shiseido website):

Creates beautiful lips with appealing, clear color and a dewy smooth feel.

BDJ Box: Unboxing My September BDJ Box: Luminescent Beauty

I have another unboxing post for today which is for my September BDJ Box: Luminescent Beauty. 😀 This is my second time to share with you my unboxing post. The first time is for my BDJ Box Elite: Girls Night Out.

Before I begin the unboxing post, I would like to share first what happened with my box. It has been a series of waiting moments for three months. Yup, that long… Why?

  • First, it was July when I paid for the August BDJ Box. August came and I was already waiting for my box to arrive. Apparently, the BDJ Box system had a technical glitch at that time and I did not actually make it to the cut-off for the August BDJ Box. I was informed that I have already been moved to the batch who will be receiving the September BDJ Box. The BDJ Box team just promised to add another item in my box (a lipstick) to make up for what happened. Again, I have to wait.
  • Second, after their release of the September BDJ Box, more than a week has already passed and I haven’t received mine yet. It was really late. I already read a number of unboxing posts from other blogs for this box while I don’t exactly know when I am going to get my box. This time, the problem is with their partnered courier. I have no choice but to wait. I keep on informing two people (Joanna and Rona) from the BDJ Box team regarding the situation. Good thing that they keep on following up with their courier until my box arrived.
  • Third, when I finally got my box. the promised lipstick was not there. I informed Joanna and Rona regarding the situation and they again communicated with their courier. I have no choice but to, again, wait. After two weeks of waiting, Joanna personally delivered the lipstick at my house. Awww… It was really touching. 🙂 Thanks a lot Joanna! 😀 Thanks to you too, Rona! 😀

There… That’s the long journey of my September BDJ Box. Haha!

Moving on, let’s now unbox my box. 😀

I like how this box has been arranged along with the items inside. It seems like you are getting a present for no particular reason. It just makes you feel happy! 😀

Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss

If you are a Gossip Girl fan, for sure you have already read a lot of blog posts regarding this lipgloss. This was used by Blair Waldorf (portrayed by Leighton Meester) during her wedding. It is the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop.

Product Description (taken from the Revlon website):

Moisturizing Shine. Non-sticky Feel.

A silky gloss that boosts hydration and plumps lips with moisture for a colorful glamorous shine. Available in 12 gorgeous shades.

There is a simple product information at the bottom of the lipgloss bottle. It consists of the name of the product, the color or shade name (with a French translation) and number, expiry date, and indicates that this lipgloss has SPF15. This is such a brilliant idea on how to impart information in a very minimalist way. 😀

Review: Majolica Majorca Honey Pump Gloss Neo

Aside from lipstick, the other usual product that we use to give color to our lips is the lip gloss.

Characteristics of lip glosses (source can be found here):

  • When worn, lip glosses are more lightweight and moisturizing as compared to lipsticks. It gives that slippery feel and shiny look on the lips.
  • Since it gives a slippery and lightweight texture, lip glosses are not long wearing. You have to retouch several times during the day.
  • Lip glosses only give a sheer coverage.

As promised in this post, my next makeup review would be the Majolica Majorca Honey Pump Gloss Neo lip glosses. 😀

Product Description (from the Majolica Majorca website):

Rich honey shine and Gloss for plump lips

Here are the shades that I have (PK247 and RS456).

Here are the swatches (refer to the picture below):

  • For PK247, it may not be that evident in the swatch but there are tiny glittery particles in the product. But don’t fret if you dislike glittery glosses. They are so small and not really obvious when applied.
  • For RS456, there are no glittery particles in the product. The shade is just a solid glossy color.

Makeup Purchase: Majolica Majorca, Wet n Wild, Revlon and FS Cosmetics Products

Wow! Just by reading the title of this post, it seems like I had a makeup shopping galore! Well, not so much. Just a bit, I guess? Haha! 😉

Here they are! 😀

Majolica Majorca, Wet n Wild, Revlon and FS Cosmetics Products

For Majolica Majorca, I got this Mascara and Honey Pump Gloss Bundle. If you buy the said two products at the same time, you can get them at a lower price. 😀 For the mascara, I bought their most raved product which is the Lash King. I chose this because of its positive blog reviews and this is even sold at a much lower price than the other mascaras (more savings for me :)).

For Wet n Wild, I got this Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection. When I saw this in their Facebook page, I got so intrigued with it. This palette makes the application of eyeshadows a breeze since there is already an indication in each pan where to put those colors in your eye area. Aside from that, you get to choose which group of colors you can have for the day (or night). 😀
