Review: My New Eye Products Experience With Sephora Online

My New Eye Products Experience
Its the month of joy, celebrations and giving. There are sales everywhere in stores and you have a long shopping list and many parties to attend but just no time

Well don't worry. There is always something call online store where you can shop for items you need at your own time in the comfort of your home sofa but still enjoy discounts

For me, you might have already notice that I have very little sharing post on eye products especially eye makeup products on my blog. Party time is coming and I have no proper eye products to use!!! -_-'''

Thanks to Sephora online store, I get to shop for a whole range of awesome eye products that they have at the comfort of my home with my busy schedule
Sephora online store
I was pretty impressed as my order came delivered pretty fast. So what eye products did I buy
What eye products did I buy? Lets unwrap together with Mr Poop!
Without further ado, let's unwrap and rock and roll with me!!!

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream
Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream (14g)
We must have a healthy eye contour before we can "paint" them. Therefore the first product I choose is Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream. 

  • Lock in moisture around delicate eye area with hyaluronic acid. 
  • Light weight
  • Creamy white texture.
  • Non greasy 
  • Non sticky
  • fragrance free 
  •  Apply small amount around eye contour area. 
  • S$30 for 14g
My Review
This is the first time I am using Mario Badescu product and my first hyaluronic eye cream. The product came in a 14g tub and properly sealed. 
Came properly sealed.
I seldom use cream eye product as I always feel that it is too greasy. But this eye cream from Mario Badescu feels really light-weight and non greasy to me. 
Light-weight and non greasy and non-sticky.
I like it that I just have to use very little amount for each eye contour. Which means 1 tub can last me for quite long. :)

I must say, this hyaluronic eye cream did soften and moisturized my eye contour, making it easier for makeup application

However, it does not work on dark eye circles and eye bag. Therefore I personally felt that it is good to treat this product as an add on to my current eye care regiments that lack the moisturizing effect.

Leaders Insolution Hydrogel Eye Therapy Patch

During application, the eye mask feels really cooling and comfortable.

My Review
Sephora Collection Palette To Go came in a very convenient and nice casing. Easy enough for me to bring around.
Convenient and pretty casing.
I love how the palette is prettily place. Simple wording on the side of the palette really helps in making decision on what to use. 
How the palette looked like.
The palette color may look quite dark but when trying out on my hand, they do look light and bright to me. Look really nice to me.

I like it that the colors blend really well and it set really quickly on my eye lid. It look natural and by the end of the day, although it fade a little, the color stays enough to still look good.

My Review
Ok....of all the eye products, I admit eyeliner is the one I used least often. But I do want to start using them for prettier eyes. :)

About Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner really caught my attention. It came 2 sided. 
Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner.
One side is the normal creamy pencil and the other side is the beveled smudger.
Eye Liner pencil.
Beveled smudger.
Color wise, I like my liner to be in dark chocolate color. Therefore, perfect espresso chosen. 
Perfect espresso.
Actually, this is the first time I am using the smudger. So I actually don't really know what to do with it. Trying on my hand to rub against the eyeliner erase them off. So can I actually use them as a eyeliner eraser then?? Well I better leave the smudger alone first. -_-'''

Eyeliner erase off when using smudger.
This pencil draws pretty eyeliner. Making my eyes look naturally beautiful and big.
Beautiful eyeliner drawn.
There is only one problem with the eyeliner. The eyeliner tip break off or rather melt off easily. The texture just feels like a melted bar of chocolate. But I saw somewhere that says putting them in the refrigerator before use help. I tried and indeed it helps. The eyeliner tip became solid again and easy to draw.

My Review
This Mirenesse Kit came with a mascara and a heated eyelash curler. Ok...the heated eyelash curler is the one that attracted my attention. :P

All along I have been only using normal curler. So a heated curler really makes me curious.

The heated curler came as a sliver looking device. The only different is that it came with an on off switch and a button to lift up the pads.
Heated eyelash curler.
Of course AAA batteries are needed to operate the heating element. Otherwise it will be like normal curler. One thing to note, batteries are not included.
Need batteries to operate.
And when the pad turns from pink to white which indicate it is ready to use, I go Wow!!! -_-''' Ok ok I know I sound a little mountain tortoise here. :P
Pink pad turns white means ready to use.
The heated curler is not too hot but I do feel the warm heat when I place it on my eyelash. One thing I notice is that the heat can go too hot if I on it for too long. So make sure you don't on it for too long. Otherwise, I do see my lash being curl up making my eyes look more awake.
In the middle of using the heated curler.
The mascara that comes with the kit came in a nice black tube.
Opening it I see a slightly curve brush.
Slightly curve brush.
Trying out the mascara on my hand, it feels a little dry to me. But I personally feels that it should be the way so that it will not take too much time to dry on my lashes.
Trying out on my hand.
It is easy to apply. But I have to make sure I don't blink my eyes immediately to avoid little black mascara landing on my skin.

One thing I like about this mascara is that it looks so natural and it feels comfortable to wear.
Eyes look natural and pretty.
Alright folks. After using these basic eye care and eye makeup, my eyes do look really gorgeous!!!
