Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick Review & Swatches 玫琳凯絕色半啞光唇膏

话说最近收到一些Mary Kay的唇膏。一开始觉得可能只是普通雾面的唇膏质感,拆封使用了之后我是完全惊讶那质感!我先来做这款唇膏的简介好了!

Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick 玫琳凯絕色半啞光唇膏

mary-kay-gel-semi-matte-ads-hero-2_734_sv2_1

Mary Kay 推出了首款具完整遮蓋力的半啞光唇膏。濃郁的色彩加上柔軟舒適的質感,一抹便愛上的魅惑粉霧唇色。

持久及色泽饱和的唇彩
玫琳凯新推出的半啞光唇膏拥有濃郁飽和的色彩,而且还可以帶來持久妝效保证絕不乾燥!有偏干嘴唇的美眉有救了!我使用了一阵子,发现它的颜色真的很显色,如果不是用纸巾抹掉,其实吃完午餐后唇膏的颜色依然还在。marykay_gel-semi_lipstick-0001

质感丝滑,呈现出粉雾的妆感
使用嶄新的配方,Cushion Matrix Technology,光學粒子散射光線,让我们涂在嘴唇上时觸感更是絲滑,这也让雙唇柔軟又舒適!对我来说这还是我第一次用这样质感的唇膏。由于唇膏的质感太粉嫩,很容易推,整个唇彩的画面是呈現出柔焦般的粉霧妝感!

雾面唇膏也可以很滋润
很少看到有半啞光的唇膏还可以很滋润的。Mary Kay 半啞光唇膏含有葵花籽油及荷荷芭脂等呵護成分使嘴唇更加滋润!建议嘴唇干裂的美眉可以在使用前涂上护唇膏,再使用这半啞光唇膏,以免更凸显嘴唇的纹路。

Hey girls, today I am going to share you the new products from The Face Shop!

Most of the people known The Face Shop as a brand that shares the benefits of nature ingredients and formula that allows the essence of nature penetrate into skin. The Face Shop are now bringing you to another level of perfect skin.

tfsm-therapy-0002

THE THERAPY, an European blending formula-based skincare that deliver excellent anti-acing effect on skin. The European base skincares come with four products from tonic treatment, formula emulsion, oil-drop anti-aging serum and cream. It uses rich mineral, blue algae that contain high anti-oxidant to rejuvenate your skin to more healthy radiance by treating and slowing down signs of aging.

First of all, THE THERAPY skincare range are targeted to customers who aged 30’s and above. But I also highly recommended to people who have dry skin because it has Rich Moisture which can moisture the skin all day long. And this series of skincare contained anti-dryness, to enhance your skin to a perfect daily hydration level.

tfsm-therapy-0004

Continue reading to find out the review on THE THERAPY Skincare Range.

THE THERAPY FIRST SERUM

tfsm-therapy-0033

In our country, we have a really bad weather and also air pollution so skincare can cause skin problem. To own a set of better skincare has become one of the main essential for us. The main ingredients in the First Serum uses the Thalassotherapy Water, in stead of the normal water and the European therapist’s essential oil formula to heighten the anti-aging effect to form the protection shield for our skin.

THE THERAPY First Serum is the first step serum water aka booster with blending formula with micro crystal particles and essential oils (Sandalwood / Avocado / Palmarosa) assures optimum skincare results by restoring balance to skin.

THE THERAPY First Serum the essential regimen first step serum water blending formula with Crystal particles and essential oil assures optimum skincare results by restoring balance to skin. THE THERAPY First Serum is recommended to use right after cleansing. It helps to balance the skin texture and boost the absorption and effectiveness of any treatments used after it.

Scents & Texture

tfsm-therapy-0034

The scents can just leave you feeling super relaxed and stress-free. Nothing special on the texture. It’s looks like just the water but when you applied on your face, you can see the absorption of the product it really performs well on your skin. Fast absorption, I like!

How to Use

tfsm-therapy-0035

After cleansing (before toning), pump 1-2 times and apply following the skin texture outward. Use it before toning could instantly penetrate the anti-aging ingredients into the skin and maximize the absorption of the further treatments.

I like to use my palm to apply the serum on my face. But if you wish to have some exfoliations, I will suggest to use The Therapy Green Tea Cotton Pad for better exfoliation effect.

tfsm-therapy-0036

*Apply it immediately after your cleansing to ensure for an instant absorption of their active ingredients. It is similar to the process of skin refreshment.

Price

130ml = RM 148.29 (Inclusive GST)


THE THERAPY MOISTURE BLENDING CREAM

tfsm-therapy-0032

THE THERAPY Moisture Blending Cream is formulated in two layers.

Upper Layer: Moisture Oil Gel Cream
Thalassotherapy water + 3 essential oils (Sandalwood, avocado, palmarosa)
+
Lower Layer: Rich Moisture Cream
 Moisture anti-aging blending formula with excellent moisturising and anti-dryness effect

Hand-blended ingredients are combined to create a luxurious cream that gently melts into skin for hydration. You are require to mix the two layers of ingredient before you use it. Mixed for 10 seconds, which can smoothly blend together to deliver unique softness and moisture.

*Quick Tips:
What is Thalassotherapy Water?
In Europe, ‘Thalassotherapy’ is a traditional therapy using rich mineral ingredients of the sea to pursue the body balance. Thalassotherapy water  is the purest water that nature offers with the most amount of natural mineral ingredients on Earth. This water contains exceptional amount of natural mineral, one element that forms skin NMF (natural moisturizing factor), more than spring water.

Scents & Texture

tfsm-therapy-0037

The mixture of the essential oil scents smells good (mild). Not exactly cream but lotion texture, is smooth and easy to apply.

As I mentioned above, this is a rich moisturiser, sometimes we might have the idea of rich moisture equals to oiliness. Surprisingly, this cream is not oily at all. You will feels hydrated after the application.

How to Use

After applied toner, use the spatula (comes with the pack) and take a small amount of cream and gently apply on whole face with circular motion and gentle massage till it fully absorb.

tfsm-therapy-0038

*Amount of application is depends on your skin conditions. If you’re dry skin do test and try few times. Recommended not to put too much to cause the oiliness.

Price

50ml = RM 185.48 (Inclusive GST)

** For those people who are looking for anti-aging skincare do not have to do with oriental medicine and bad herbal scents, THE THERAPY range could be the right one for you. 🙂

Summary:

tfsm-therapy-0015

I like the moisture-ness of the product on my face. It really stay on my face all day long. People who stay in air-cond room I will prefer you use a little bit more amount of the cream on your skincare routine, especially at night. I personally tried on that, and when I woke up my skin still looks moisture but not oily. Good to try!
