Miss-Rusty-Bellabox-December-2014-Products

This the season to be jolly! Bellabox has of course joined in the holiday joy by rolling out their Ring in the Christmas Belles box! I’m excited to share this month’s items which some of them I have been really enjoying.

APEX POWER VOLUME-UP MASCARA (S$19.90; 8G)

I absolutely cannot live without mascara. It helps open up my eyes by lengthening and volumnizing my non-existent lashes. I’ve never heard of Apex Power before. It claims to be a non-irritating, waterproof formula that wraps lash by lash without clumps, tangles or smudges. Thus, it is safe for contact wearers and people who has sensitive eyes.

Miss-Rusty-Bellabox-December-2014-Apex-Beaute-Power-Mascara

Glad to say that I’m absolutely loving it since my first try and have been loving it more and more with every use! The formula is not too wet nor too dry, which is of good balance that lives up to its claims of a non-clumpy mascara. Lengthened, volumnized lashes that fan out beautifully is what is achieved after application. An absolute must try!

CUREL SEBUM CARE (LOTION S$24.90; 150ML, MOISTURE GEL S$34.90; 150ML)

This is a miss for me as this Curel Sebum Care range is more appropriate for oily skin while I have dry skin. Consisting of a Sebum Care Lotion and a Sebum Care Moisture Gel, its oil and acne control properties work to control sebum secretion right at its source.

KESTER BLACK FOR BELLABOX NAIL POLISH (S$22.50; 15ML)

After going for gelish manicures for the past half year, I am now going back to paint my own nails with the traditional nail polishes. And there isn’t a much better time for Bellabox to include a nail polish then now! This Bellabox exclusive shade that I received is a beautiful Orangey-Red.

Miss-Rusty-Bellabox-December-2014-Kester-Black-Nail-Polish

Free from toluene, DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde Resin, it’s a chip resistant polish with a long lasting high shine. I’ve tried it and honestly, 1 coat is more than sufficient. But I still usually apply 2 coats for a more opaque and even finish.

MEDAVITA SS-CAROTENE COMPLEX

A leave-in hair restoring serum in a single dose phial that promises to restore the bio-energetic reserves of the hair fibre and neutralizes damaging free radicals for stronger strands. I don’t usually use this but could try it out.

Miss-Rusty-Bellabox-December-2014-Medavita

JUICE BEAUTY GREEN APPLE PEEL (S$63; 60ML)

I’ve heard raves about this, tried it before and loved it. Juice Beauty’s bestselling, patented Green Apple Peel is well loved by many through the world and there’s a reason for it. Featuring organic Alpha Hydroxy Acids of malic acid from green apples, citric acid from lemons and tartaric acid from grapes, the product helps exfoliate skin, even out skin tones and improve skin texture.

Miss-Rusty-Bellabox-December-2014-Juice-Beauty-Green-Apple-Peel-Sensitive

The consistency is very liquidy, somehow reminds me of thinned out apple sauce. I usually put a thin layer on my skin and let it do its magic. After washing it off after application, my face does seems to be brighter! It could probably be my hallucination though. :/

Miss-Rusty-Bellabox-December-2014-Juice-Beauty-Green-Apple-Peel-Sensitive-Swatch

LA BIOSTHETIQUE SHAMPOO BEAUTE (S$28; 250ML)

A green gentle scalp and hair cleanser that claims to maintain a balanced scalp health and enhance hair’s comb-ability without drying it out. With hints of kiwis, mangoes and papaya, the scent has a fruity kick to it. It’s not common that a shampoo is thoughtful enough to care for the scalp as well (which is equally important, if not more) so I’m glad this product does so.

Miss Rusty Etude House Princess Collection Full

Gorgeous isn’t it? Etude House has one of the most innovative and unique packaging within the beauty industry. Not only that, their products are pretty amazing too! Originated from Korea, a country that has introduced countless awesome cosmetics trends and wonderful products, it’s no wonder why many are catching on to Korea’s beauty industry and trends.

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Closeup

I apologize for being late for this but they recently came out with their Limited Edition Disney Princesses collection and boy are they amazing! I’m going to walk you through all the products that are within the collection and of course recommend some of my favourites to you.

Miss Rusty Etude House Princess Collection Face Eyes

ROSE CHEEK BLUSHER (S$16; 4.8G)

The collection’s blushers are part of Princess Belle’s line and come in 2 different shades, #1 Pink Rose and #2 Coral Rose. Encased in a beautiful box mimicking story books, you are able to see which shade is which by the little peek of Rose of the respective shade.

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Rose-Cheek-Blusher-Packaging

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Rose-Cheek-Blusher

Within the ‘books’ are round compacts that are made from plastic. Not the most fanciful packaging to be honest. In fact, it does feel a little ‘cheap’, but you’ll see that the product itself made up for it.

Now, just how gorgeous are these babies? I would say that these are 3D rose blushes that sits pretty even in just their cases.

#2 Coral Rose

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Rose-Cheek-Blusher-Pink-Rose

#1 Pink Rose

Swatches of the blushers below. I would say #2 Coral Rose definitely came off more pigmented than #1 Pink Rose. However, both applies smoothly as the products are created using Straight Dough Method technology which combines ultra-fine silicone powder, porous powder and shimmering pearls to product a soft texture.

Would I recommend it? Definitely! If you are in the mood to spend a little more, get both. However, if you only want 1, I would surely choose #2 Coral Pink. Just look at it, it’s so gorgeous it needs no further persuasion from me!

PRECIOUS MINERAL BB CREAM SPF30 PA++ (S$27; 60G)

BB Creams are of all the rage right now. They are especially useful here in Singapore where the weather gets really hot and humid. Foundation tends to be a tad too heavy on the skin and would result in cakey applications if applied with a heavy hand. Within Etude House’s Princess Snow White line are 2 BB Creams, said to help achieve fair skin like the princess herself!

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Precious-Minerall-BB-Cream-Blooming-Fit

I’m using W13 Natural Beige now and I must say that the light consistency doesn’t affect how decent it is in terms of coverage. It blends well and has a very watery consistency which helps in achieving a more natural finish.

Would I recommend it? Yes, but only for people who prefers lighter coverage for a natural look.

LASH PERM PROOF SHOCKARA (S$24; 10G)

I’ve used one of their mascaras previously (the one with the pink cap) and loved it. So I had pretty high hopes for this one as well. As part of the Princess Jasmine line, I’m glad to say that I’m liking it so far!

It has a more watery formulation which might not appeal to those who prefer clumpy ones for voluminous lashes (or some may say, spider lashes). But, it does the job well by coating each and every lash without weighing them down. Also, I have to point out that my lashes stayed curled throughout the day, which is quite rare.

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Lash-Perm-Proof-Shockcara

It has a pretty unique shaped wand and you can see the comb-like bristles that are key to achieving those natural looking long lashes.

Would I recommend it? Only if you like natural looking lashes and willing to wait a little longer for the formulation to dry before you head out the door!

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Lash-Perm-Proof-Shockcara-Wand

Miss Rusty Etude House Princess Collection Eyes Lips

FAIRY GLITTER SHADOW (S$13; 4.5G)

And now it’s eyeshadows time! Princess Cinderella is all about the glitters and sparkle, so naturally these colours are of the same kind as well. They apply smooth and is build-able on the lids. One tip is to use your trusty fingers instead of using an eyeshadow brush. Application is much easier and the colour would be more vibrant as well.

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Fairy-Glitter-Shadow

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Fairy-Glitter-Shadow-Products

3 shade are available within the collection; a copper with gold undertones, a shimmery brown and a watermelon red-pink. All 3 are gorgeous wearing on their own on the lids or pair with other shades for the ultimate princess look. Also a thing to note is that the eyeshadows are loose but densely packed within the tubs.

Would I recommend it? Well, only if you are a fan of the colours. The pots are a tad too bulky and takes up too much space in my vanity area. But if I really need to choose one, the pink one is the way to go.

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Fairy-Glitter-Shadow-Products-Swatches

LIPSTICK (S$17; 3.5G)

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Lipsticks-Tubes-Packaging

Miss-Rusty-Etude-House-Princess-Collection-Lipsticks-Tubes

I was so surprised when I first swatched these babies because the colour is insanely gorgeous and the payoff super pigmented as well! The formulation is decent without being too drying on the lips. Thus, because of its moisture level, the lipstick does comes off easily when you eat or drink so re-applying would be expected quite often.

Would I recommend it? Yes, especially Princess Belle’s Purple Rose Lips. But be prepared to leave stains on glasses and cheeks. And also expect many touching up needed throughout the day.

NAIL POLISH KIT (S$12; 8ML X 2)

Short stories time! 4 different princesses means 4 different manicures. Again, they are packaged so adorably in book-like boxes that offers 2 complementing nail polishes and a sheet of sticker to pair with. I didn’t try them as I’m into the Gelish trend these days but they are definitely great gifts!
