First Impression: dUCk Cosmetics Lipstick Matte Decisions

Saturday, September 09, 2017

    Assalamualaikum and good morning guys! How's your day going? Hope you'll have a bright and cheerful day while reading this blog post. So today I'm going to write about this Lipstick collection from a brand name Duck. If you guys didn't know, Duck is actually a scarves brand that I have talked about in #Review on Duckscarves post and slowly they expand on doing stationery and home and living stuff. Now they are releasing a makeup line and honestly, I'm quite excited when they announced it but was turn off by the colour shades that they offer. I was expecting a lot more for their shades but it's okay since it was just a beginning point for D and the Duck team. Who knows maybe they will later come out with cool shades to wear? I'll keep watching out for you D hehe.

Okay now on the my first impressions thoughts!

Alhamdulillah, I get a chance to bought one from #MatteDecisions ranges which is obviously a matte lipstick, hence the name. I bought Zealous Zoey because I think that this colour suits my skin tone very well and it is metallic. Bro, metallic bro. It is a must buy for me because the other colours are kinda basic and un wearable for me, I think most of the colours suits fair skin people better? I don't know, just my two cents. Oh but I love how D claims it to be cruelty free, paraben free and halal! They are in process to get the Halal certificate too! I love their effort for doing this because some people are very particular for these stuff. ♡

Duck always hook me up with their cute and cheerful packaging and this is one is included! I love the illustrations on the box packaging and it makes me feel 'sayang' to throw it away because the packaging are damn cute! When I open the box, it reveal that the lipstick comes with a beautiful rose gold cap. It is a kind of a simple packaging, but I'm the one that love minimalistic packaging so this is a thumbs up for me. In lipsticks application, I prefer this doe foot size applicator rather than the long one. I love how it hugged my lips nicely and smooth out the application nicely.

I love the colour very much, it is a beautiful brown metallic shades with red undertone. I love the pigmentation in this colour but I think there's an inconsistency of the formula for each colour. My mom bought Minimally Tracy and truth to be told, it's kind of streaky. You got to apply a second layer to make it total opaque but it was different with Zealous Zoey. So far, loving the formula! It dries instantly but at the same time it got that hydrating feels. So far I've wear it without lip balm and it is doing a good job for not cracking my lips! Another thumbs up for me.

First Impression: Arome Floral Perfume Lip Scrub by Watson

Sunday, August 20, 2017

         Assalamualaikum and hello guys! How are you doing?  I know that it has been a long time I didn't post anything... (forgive me please) but fear not, I'm back with a first impression of a lip scrub. I've been a long time fan of Lush lip scrub but due to no Lush store in Malaysia and Lush can get quite expensive if you purchase regularly. (I have my budget too!) So I got to search for an alternative for a student like me T_T

I dropped by Watsons and quickly grabbed it as soon as I saw it hanging on the shelves. Been wanting to try this for a quite few times now and finally I have.

As you can see it has a mouthful ingredients to compare with my previous lip scrubs that only have minimal ingredients which is like, sugar... and other essential oils. (natural issit) Sooo, I tried the lip scrub and I expected it to be of course, sugary like above my lips but no, it is quite gentle and kind of not edible? Because I try to taste it and it end up taste like... soap. I don't like it. What the meaning of lip scrub if it's not edible? (xD) Kiddin' hehe.

Well, it doesn't feel satisfying as much than Lush lip scrub but I do sense a bit of exfoliation when I use it. I don't know why but when I wet it with water it tends to foam up, is it like that? The term I mean. Because it taste like soap (wth 😂) So I used this few times and surprisingly, despite of the soap taste it works quite well! It also works in removing lip products also. I was surprised actually when it actually did remove the lipstick because I expect it to not work tho. My lips also didn't dry up after using it because I always experience dry lips when I use Lush' lip scrub and it bothers me quite a bit.... Good job Watsons!

4/5 stars! Lost one stars due to the taste.... I still feel like I was licking some kind of poisonous substance 😂

Only at Watsons with a retail price: RM22.90 (I got it on sale hehe)

What's your fav lip scrub?
