Just a short post for today  (long time no see!!)

Recently I bought a few new Lip Lacquers and I wanted to see if there's much difference between the old and new formulas (other than the new packaging, which is cute as!)

[The old packaging is slightly thinner, has a matte black lid and the name on the bottom is on a black label while the new packaging is slightly thicker, has a shiny gold lid and the bottom label matches the colour inside.]

I actually wore Tranquility (old formula) and Harmony (new formula) each on half of my lips, to compare them somewhat fairly. No pics though, silly me...

I applied both with a lip brush (cleaned in between colours) as I'm not 100% a fan of the doe foot applicator for matte lip products like these.

They both dried in a similar amount of time, but Harmony stayed a little tacky throughout the day.

Tranquility has a pretty neutral male-up smell, which fades almost immediately,while Harmony has a (fairly) strong berry scent, which lasts for a few hours.

They wore quite evenly, mostly in the center of the lips, as I was eating and drinking, but the outer line stayed pretty much the same as when I applied them.

When I 'kissed' my hand, Tranquility didn't leave any mark, but Harmony left bits of colours behind. They were both totally dry by this point,  it just seemed as if the newer formula was less drying on the lips because of this slight moistness.

Overall, I didn't notice much difference wearing them. I really like the berry scent of the new formula, however I prefer the completely dry consistency of the old formula  (when dry), but I'm gonna continue to use both formulas, as I have 4 of each, haha

After a super long hiatus... here's another make-up review~~

I really love these cream foundations, though I do use them as concealers (IMO, they're a bit heavy to use all over the face, but whatever works best for you~~)


I'm really pale (no duh), so I use Yellow under my eyes to reduce any purple colouring there. Then I use Fair on any spots or red areas  (like around my nose, forehead and uper cheeks).

In the past I've hated concealers because they always caked on my skin, whether they were in liquid, cream or stick form. Plus it's kinda hard finding a shade light enough to match my skin as the trend, for quite a while now has been to embrace tanned sun-kissed skin (which I definitely do not have, and I'm not unhappy about this, I love my pale skin ♡)

Texture-wise, these cream foundations can be a little difficult to work with in the beginning as they need a bit of warming up to 'melt' the product. They're easy to apply with a (clean) fingertip, or you can use a brush. And I haven't had a problem with my make-up slipping down my face at all.

They blend really well, and I could easily go out with just these as concealer without any foundation (maybe just add some brow eyeliner and mascara) though the yellow on its own can make you look a bit jaundiced.

I get a bit of creasing around the eye area, though that's mostly due to the fact that I wear glasses  (and the product gathers there a bit) but that's nothing a bit of touch-up smudging or patting can't fix~~

Overall, they're great and I'll probably repurchase them when they're finished, which will be a long way in the future, as I bought the yellow one about 2 years ago? And there's plenty more product left~~ The only downside to them is the price... They're about £19.50 if I can remember correctly.

I highly recommend these cream foundations, and I think everyone should have at least one in their make-up arsenal.

Here's a post from the past~~ Waay back in January 2010!! I had this lost half translated than somehow forgot to finish it... T^T

My hope is to translate the old posts bit-by-bit when there's not much current posts to do! Though my next 'old posts' will be October and November 2015!!

One thing about Kime's old posts is he posted a lot less pictures, but a whole lot more emoji-esque icons... cute, but a bit more work...

And remember to check out the new Kimeru fan-community over on Facebook, 'cos Livejournal seems to be dying... Galaxy Kiss ~Kimeru Fans~

So here's post no.s 122 - 126!!
