( I liked the blue ribbon note! )
Yes, Helen and I had a exchange! She was intrigued by my light pink Face Shop blush (posted HERE) and since I have easier access to the store than she, I offered to pick one up for her. In return, she generously sent me two products to try – A shimmery pastel palette by Estee Lauder and a organic tinted moisturizer. Comprehensive info for the tinted moisturizer can be found HERE. I was delighted to find that it is 80% organic and free of parabens, color, and fragrance … among others!
I am eager to try ‘Mint Ice’ and ‘Ginger Drop’
- Contains 1.5 Fl. oz. ( 44 ml. )
- with SPF 15
I can’t wait to try these out later in the day. ^_^ Will follow up on that of course!
Thanks again Helen, this was fun!
If you would like to do a makeup swap with myself, Helen, or the both of us, just ask !

Here is what it looks like with the tinted moisturizer as base, followed by a pea sized amount of Skin 79 BB cream (hot pink container), with some concealer on top. No blush yet –
I took off my glasses so you can see the eyeshadow. Lol, I was so eager to try each color right away that I fit four colors on there! Ginger Drop & Mocha Cup on the bottom, then the green and blue on top. I like that they are nice and light because I don’t know how to wear the dark colors. Whenever I use black, it seems to weigh my eyes down.
The above is with blush. I used N.Y.C. New York Color – Blushable Creme Stick in “Berry New Yorker“. I love the color; a coral-pink. It’s easy to layer so you can go super light and sheer … or not. 😉
This is what I bought from local CVS. The price was $11.95+tax but I had a coupon for $7 off and luckily I bought the last one with a bonus(clear serum). talk about bang for my buck. Anywho, It has a nice packaging. Looks clean and simple as you can see in the photo. Now let’s see what they look like without the cap.
As you can see in the photo, it has a very fine tip. It reminded me of Lancome’s art liner I used to use except for the price tag. It wrote beautifully on my hand. It dried quickly, didn’t budge/smudge and stayed on forever.
However, when I put it on over my makeup the next day it just crackled. I thought it was because I didn’t apply my primer. But I was wrong it crackled the next day and the day after AGAIN. It was weird because I read the review on this and it had a 4.5 from like 100 people. Can someone tell me why it crackled?
Anyways, so your guess is right. I stopped using the eyeliner. As for the serum, let’s take a look at the photo.
Same fine tip with clear serum. Mind you they say the black eyeliner also has the serum in it. They claim that after 4weeks, majority of women who used it saw results.
However, I used it for about 2-3weeks and saw no results. That reminds me that I also have used talika’s $40 eyelash serum for a full month and that did not really work either.
Overall, this wasn’t worth my money. I’m glad I had a $7 off coupon from CVS.
