Kylie Cosmetics & Comparison Dupe! Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color // Review + Lip Swatches on Asian Skin Tone

I've recently found out this brand through COMA Makeup, and bought 5 of them to try out! They are super affordable, retailing at only $9.90 I think it is a pretty good steal! I've tested all of these colors for at least a week, and I finally have my thoughts on them.



Jordana claims that these liquid lippies are lightweight, I beg to differ, even though they feel very comfortable on the lips after applying it, my lips feels like they are a piece of dry land after a few hours. I recommend to scrub your lips and moisturize them super well the night before!

It settles into the lines of my lips, which is something that I have come to terms with because literally all liquid lipstick that I've tried does this. In addition, they definitely do not last up to 16 Hours as it comes off pretty easily if you are eating something really oily, especially on the sides of my lips.

Unless you are not stuffing your face with food, it stays on really well throughout the day. It is transfer proof though! Also, I really love the applicator as it hugs my bottom lips, I will attach a close up so you will see what I mean. It makes it so easy for me to apply, application is a breeze!



Overall, I like this liquid lipstick. It is drying but I always change my lipstick throughout the day and apply lip balm so it is not a problem for me. I will definitely buy more, Sugarberry crumble is next on my list!

02 Strawberry Cheesecake is a bright warm pink that instantly brightens up my complexion. I love to wear this when I have no makeup other than my eyebrows on since it acts as a highlighter for my entire face. This is actually more drying that than rest of the colors. I tried to apply another layer as some came off after munching on my burger, and it look as pretty as before!



07 Tiramisu is a warm deep pinky nude, it is pretty similar to 09 Rose Macaron, just a little deeper. This is my favorite color as it goes well with any kind of makeup, the perfect MLBB color. It glides on perfectly and is not patchy!


09 Rose Macaron is a cool tone mid-berry color, and this is a perfect dupe for Kylie's Posie K. Kylie's definitely more moisturizing and more comfortable to wear compared to Rose Macaron, however if you are in the market for an affordable alternative, Rose Macaron is pretty good too. This is not patchy at all, I get an even beautiful application with just one swipe.

11 Red Velvet Cake is a beautiful burgundy wine color, my second favorite kind of red to wear! It applies a little patchy though, but nothing too crazy that is is obvious from afar. It is difficult to layer on, so I strongly suggest using a coat each for the top and bottom to prevent from applying another layer.

22 Cinnamon Toast is a deep cool tone brown. It is definitely not a every day color if you have fair skin, however I actually tried this on my boyfriend who is much darker than me, and it looks amazing on him! A very pretty natural lippie option if you darker skin tone. This is applies just as good as the pink one, although it may get patchy if you put on too much.




I hope this swatch post is useful for anyone who is interested in Jordana’s liquid lippie! Thank you for reading :)

Etude House Wonder Fun Park Eyeshadow Palettes // Review + Swatches



Etude House limited release are always so aesthetically pleasing! When I first saw the promotional pictures for the Wonder Fun Park products, I was super excited to buy literally everything. The eyeshadow palettes caught my eye and I made sure to get my hands on both.

There are 2 palettes, one for the day and another for the night. My favorite palette is surprisingly the night palette (#2), the beautiful holographic glitter shadows are not what I would typically go for, but I would totally wear it on a girls night out!

Here is a little tip, the glitter shadows do not swatch well, however if you use a synthetic brush and spritz a little Mac Fix Plus, they will look so much more vibrant on your eyelid. It also helps to minimize the glitter fall outs.

The mattes are buttery soft as usual, which is not a surprise to me. Their mattes never disappoints! The base shadows, are very close to my skin color hence they do not seem to be very pigmented.



The day palette is also pretty good as well (just look at the black), the only disappointing shade will be the soft pink on the second row. I expected it to be a beautiful sheen of pink, texture wise similar to the blue beside it, however it has no pigmentation at all. I was really keen on creating a soft feminine look using the pink as the focus color on my eyelid, so what I did was to mix the pink and the more salmon-y color.



If you were to ask me which palette to get, I will strongly recommend getting both. You will be getting different textures, and thus be able to create more dimensional looks! Glitter is so fun to use at night, but do not let my words restrict you if you love glitter in the day as well.

Packaging wise, the eye shadow pans are a little loose, similar to the Pink Skull collection. Just press the shadow back and it should be fine. I really love how compact the palettes are, it is so convenient to bring them along when I travel.

They also released 5 shades of the Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in this collection. I only got one color as I have too many lipsticks, and the other colors didn't really appeal to me. RD318 in Chiffon is a beautiful warm red pink. It brightens up my face and makes my complexion looks so much nicer without any foundation.



The Chiffon formula is actually my favorite lipstick formula from Etude House. It stays on pretty well, however it is not transfer proof. The smell reminds me of berries, it is not overpowering and it goes away almost instantaneously after applying it. If you see them in stores, I recommend you to snag it up!

I did not get the blush and the highlighter because it did not look promising based on the brush swatch I did in stores.. These products are actually on 50% discount right now, which is why I decided to post this review despite it being released so long ago. Hopefully this post has helped some of you out.

Thank you for reading as always, please leave me a comment telling me your favorite Wonder Fun Park product if you have tried any!

Etude House Lip Rich Vivid Tint - Review & Lip swatches


Hello lovelies, today I am back with an Etude House Lip Rich Vivid Tint review! These are the lip tints that won me a ticket to see Krystal at the flagship store in Singapore. I was super excited and if you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen some videos and pictures posted on my stories.

This product claims to be 'highly moisturizing,' and is a 'nourishing tint in creamy viscous texture like cream covers the dry lips vividly and comfortably with high coloring pigment as it softly melts on the lips.' It retails for $20.90 for 6g of product at Etude House stores! 




I love the packaging! I am able to look at the color from the top, it is pretty accurate so it saves me the trouble from having to open it to check. Also, I can easily slide the lipstick into any bags that I have, which makes it super convenient. The silver packaging makes it pretty hard to take a flatlay though, it reflects too much light. 




I absolutely love the wand, it makes it such a breeze to apply it onto my lips precisely. The tip helps me to perfectly shape my cupid's bow, super fuss free! Application is so easy, and this makes me love this product even more. 

It stays on my lips pretty well, it doesn't move around and neither does it move around easily. After several drinks and a fish & chips, the color did fade a little, leaving a very pretty tint. However, it does not dry down to a matte finish, it is not transfer proof!

Etude claims that this tint is super moisturizing. I have super dry lips and this does not dry out my lips at all! I have nothing but praise for this amazing tint.
