[REVIEW] Eraida Beauty ENVIE Liquid Matte


Happy Tuesday~
Today, I'll be reviewing these lip matte from Eraida Beauty. Thank you EB for sending me these cuties! I went in totally (aww) mood when I opened the package and saw this girly purply tin case. It's so ON POINT and already collected 5 pizza ratings from me 😘

There's a totally of 5 colors that have a name on every number;
💖 EL01 Cupid - nude pink
💖 EL02 Tiara - mauvy pink
💖 EL03 Eternal - red with orange hue
💖EL04 Blossom - nude brown
💖 EL05 Queen - chocolate


How cute is that?!

Simple yet slick packaging 👍






You could say that all the colors are pretty much the range of colors that I would try collect for myself except for the "Eternal" color because I'm afraid of bright colors. However, when I first saw this color, right away, it reminds me of the KylieCosmetics "Doll" liquid lipstick which is a color that I secretly would like to try myself. So thank you EB for the chance!

These liquid matte smells so good like chocolate. I feel like I could lick it right away! However, it might not as strong as you think it is so no worries for the overwhelming fragrance :)

Usually liquid lipsticks have different texture because of pigment in colors but I find that these liquid matte is almost identical in formula to each other so each of them perform almost similar on me.

I used all of these colors during Raya celebration and I could tell you my verdict.
Firstly, this does dry your lip if you have a dry lip like mine so it's wise to apply any kind of lip balm or vaseline before applying so that it won't be too dry and it will cause crack later on.

The liquid lipstick dries reasonably in time. It is because I can still layered it up and doesn't cause dragging. However, after it dries, I wouldn't recommend adding layers to it because it will drag the formula.

It last for a good amount of hours if you don't drink nor eating. It does transfer to stuff, for example, if you're drinking, it transfers to the cup. I'm not sure why it does this but at least the color on your lip won't fade.

For light colors like cupid and blossom, there might be a little streaky when applying but you can just add up layers to it and for deeper colors, they applies smoothly without problems.

I would say that the formula isn't thick and very watery and it feels lightweight but it depends on how many layers you put on. One or two layers might still feel lightweight 😊

Thank you for reading!

[REVIEW] Benton Cacao Moist and Mild Cream


Hey guys! Missed me? I'm not totally dead and have been doing microblogging on instagram rather than doing one in blogger. If you still haven't followed me instagram, do so by following my account on @ashihana 

This way you'll get the fastest review posted by me. I'm so into microblogging because I find that it is in fact easier for me, no more time consuming editing and you'll get to read basically the summary of all however, those who would love clearer pictures can still read the reviews on my blog :D (although it might take time for me to do one)

Anyway, in today's post, I'll be reviewing this NEW released product by Benton Cosmetics. I was selected as one of the reviewer of the new product and they sent me one to try. I was sooo excited!

So what's GOOD about this cream?
 Benton's Cacao Moist and Mild Cream is a lightweight cream made of healthy ingredients. Having a light texture, even a generous amount of the cream does not leave the skin heavy. Cacao extracts and hyaluronic acid help to replenish dry skin, leaving it dewy and vibrant.

Cacao Extract 63% : Rich in polyphenols, which are antioxidants and in minerals, Cacao Extract helps to moisturize and soften skin.

Cacao seed butter 10% : Obtained from the pressed seeds of cacao, Cacao seed butter consists of beneficial fatty acids such as palmitic acid, stearic acid, and oleic acid. It helps to retain moisture.

Ingredients:
Theobroma Cacao Extract (Cocoa) Extract, Theorboma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Water, Sorbitan Olivate, 1,2-Hexandiol, Pentylene Glycol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Extract, Zanthxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polyglutamic Acid, Madecassioside, Beta-Glucan, Carbomer, Arginine, Xanthan Gum



Came in a tube that does not released much air. So it won't deflate even if the product is finished.




I'm about halfway of the tube now and might be finishing it sooner because I love this cream!
I would basically avoided creams that say hydration or moisture because most likely it would cause me of having milia because my skin is not good with heavy creams. However, this cream by Benton which targeted all types of skin and it's branded as "LIGHTWEIGHT" won me over.

The cream definitely very lightweight on the skin and at the same time, it gives abundant of moisture! The cream spreads very easily on skin, almost feels like watery and it absorbs well into my skin too.  Although it gives hydration to the skin, it does not feel oily at all no matter how much I applied it on and it also does not leaves any sticky feeling afterwards.

Although I was hoping that the cream would secretly have a chocolate smells in it but unfortunately it does not contain any scent to it which is a win for those who dislike fragrance in their products.

After using it for almost three weeks now, I can say that it doesn't inflamed my face nor it gives me any breakouts and it actually the opposite. I find that my redness are calmer after I applied it on and my skin does feels smoother now. I would recommend this on summer or countries like mine because it is lightweight and does not cause my oily skin any problem. If you're looking for a mild cream with great water-oil balance in it, this is definitely for you.

I would rate this:

Thank you for reading!

[REVIEW] Zahara Breatheable Nail Polish - Halal and Wudhu Friendly!


Hi guys!

I would like to thank Zahara Cosmetics (Insta : @lovefromzahara) for sending these oxygen nail polish a.k.a water permeable nail polish to me💅. It is a wudhu-friendly nail polish that I'm very excited to try and I knew these nail polishes got viral back then but I never really try one.

They send me "Blush Crush" which is a candy pink in color and "Simply Covered" which is nude in color, kinda your-nails-but-better 😉







My application is kinda....emm...



I lovvvee this kind of remover since it is easy to use! Just dip to remove!


I did a week of testing with both colors and surprisingly got tons of compliments on how pretty it looks despite the not-so-great application by me since I raaareely wear nail polish.

In terms of wearability, I'd say this is comfortable to wear. I had problems with non-breatheable nail polish since it feels suffocated on my nails but with the thin coats I did with this, it does feels light on hand. I suggest a light coat or about one of two coats to let your nails breathe and wudhu can go through. It's halal too so you don't have to remove it to perform your solat.

It's not a peel-off nail polish that you'd see a lot in the market nowadays and you need a nail polish remover to remove it. Luckily Zahara carries a remover and I tried and it removes the nail polish effortlessly with the dip-to-remove remover style.

These nail polishes are FREE from Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor which these ingredients can cause cancer, birth defects, allergies, and poisonous to health. How crazy to think that a lot of nail polish have these! 😱

The colors are pigmented and it dries really fast once you put them on so try to apply as fast as you can before it gets tacky and for a clean coat. 

By far, "Simply Covered" is my favourite because it really doesn't seem like you wear one but still want to look gorg in class 😆
"Blush Crush" would be nice for a fun outing I'd say 😊
