Calling all MSF Lovers!!

You girls are so going to pee in your pants after this!! Thanks to the lovely Krasevayadancer from Specktra.net, we now know that there will be a MSF centered collection ala the Gold Play collection four years ago, where there will be not one, not two, not EVEN 3, but 6 MSFs!

This collection will be called the Color Craft collection, and will be available in July. According to her, the only repromote will be the Porcelain Pink MSF and the other 5 will be brand new ones.

Those of you who LOVED the striped MSFs from the BBR collection would be pleased to know that there will be 3 MSFs similar to those!! :D According to II3rinII from Specktra.net, these 3 striped MSFs will have different colors to them instead of being monochromatic like the BBR ones!! I'm just curious to see how they work together!! :D


Ok, time to pick your jaws up from the floor!! Are you excited already or not?? I know I am, and maybe (just mabbbbbbbe!!), this will be the collection that i will finally lose my MSF virginity to! hahaha!!)!! I can't wait to check them out in person! :D

This two-part collection seems like an "anniversary" for last year's Neo Sci-fi (special packaging) and Solar Field (solar bits & bronzing powders)! Well if you ask me, i'll have to say that the packaging this time round is HIDEOUS! =X Either go Celtic all the way, or animal print all the way. Two different motives sqooshed together does not make one appealing theme!! *slaps forehead*

For those who missed out on the Eversun beauty powder blush last year, do remember to check it out! This is one of my personal favourites! I use it most of the time as a contouring powder, but as a blush, it works beautifully to give you a wonderful sunkissed look too!





Here's a picture of me wearing this blush on my right cheek (your left):


Woohoo... it's great to have them brows back! hahaha!! :P

I'll most likely be getting the On a Mission beauty powder blush, the Liberated lipglass, and maybe the Sunsational lippie. I know some of you girls are looking for a bronzer, so do check them out too!! :) This collection will be available in the US on the 28th of May!

Does this collection appeal to you, or will you be skipping most of it? :D

Product Review: Bioglo Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancer



At a Glance:
Price: RM38 (approx. US$10)
Website: Cosway.com.my
Weight: 6ml
Made in: Taiwan
Likes: Works!!!, does not sting eyes, cheap (compared to Talika)
Gripes: The horrible sponge tip applicator, flakes if applied too much
Repurchase: Yes!!
Jenn's Rating: 5 Stars! Holy Grail Stuff! :D


Ingredients:
Deionized Water, Hydrolyzed Phodophycea Extract, Pelvetia Canaliculata Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Chamomile Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Xanthan Gum, Methacrylic Acid / Sodium Acrylamidomethyl Propane Sulfonate Copolymer, DMDM Hydantoin, Polysorbate 20, Allantoin, Riboflavin Tetraacetate (Vit B2), Panthenol (Vit B5), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vit B6), Cysteine HCI, Grapefruit Essential Oil, EDTA, Triethanolamine.


Product Description:
Would you like to have lustrous eyelashes that look great even without mascara?

Tired of spending a fortune on eyelash extensions that last only a couple of weeks?


Now, you can have longer and thicker eyelashes naturally with Bioglo Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancer.


Advanced liposome encapsulation delivers proprietary Bio-Energizer® and Bio-Extender® from seaweed, along with B vitamins and plant extracts, deep into the roots of the lashes to feed and nourish them. This strengthens your eyelashes, making them grow faster, fuller, longer, and more noticeable.



Actual Product Pic:


The Box it came in:


Texture & Scent:
This serum is basically liquid, so it applies smoothly unto the roots of your lashes! It does not have a scent. Do not overapply though, because you'll get flakes like these:


They look like eye goop... not very attractive!!

Packaging:


This serum comes in a slim tube much like a lipgloss.



There's a sponge applicator attached to the cap:



... which i really hate because the sponge tore after my very first use!!


So flimsy!!

Time Test:
I can see a difference after a week of application, which is really quick!

Price & Availability:
This serum is priced at RM38, which is probably one of the cheapest eyelash enhancers i'm came across. It is available at all Cosway outlets. Click here for the complete list of stockists in Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei.

Usage:
I apply this unto my eyelashes and brows twice a day.

My $0.02:

Remember my buchered eyebrows which i had to censor earlier? Today i shall show you the "extend" of the damage done by my itchy fingers! lol! But before that, i'll just have to say how much i love this serum!! This is definitely a cheaper alternative to the very expensive and much raved about Talika Lipocils. My bare eyebrows are now back to their former glory (no more censorship! lol!)! Since i have rather long lashes already, this gel didn't really do much for the length, but i noticed that my lashes were thicker now, especially the baby ones on my lower lashes!

Alright, here's a truckload of pictures for you to judge for yourself:













As you can see, by week 2, my brows were already much better! After four weeks, they're now "spotless" (bald spots, that is! lol!). As for my lashes, they were lengthened by a teeny bit, but they're much thicker! How not to love this product? :D Repurchase? You bet!! :)
