Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Let me introduce my seven adorable fruit princesses from far far away…… love them all at the first sight and can’t help to adopt them all!



What TonyMoly said about this lip gloss ~ soft jelly polymer based, it applies smoothly to your lips without leaving sticky residue behind. It adds moisture to your lips and makes them look fuller.



In this post I’m going to review the #1 Scowling face strawberry princess only because I want to send the rest to my coming Giveaway! (“D) Hint Hint…nxt mth


Among the range, only #2 and #7 are shimmery.


I must say the lip gloss really lives up to its description. The gloss easily smoothed on lips, no sticky residue, scentless and very pigmented. It imparts dewy shine and feels very moisturizing on the lips too. As shown in below testing pictures, I just applied a single layer of the lip gloss and it gave me a nice touch-up.



The lip gloss is also quite long-lasting. After some drinking and having some snack/a meal, the shine wears off but the pigmentation is still visible. Comparing to the rest of lip glosses I have used, I love how this fruit princess gloss glides on lip flawlessly but considering the shade, high-end lip gloss obviously is a winner for me. For instance, fruit princess gloss #1 gives single colour tone – pinkish (Perhaps this is just what it meant for), where high-end Shiseido Maquillage Rouge Enamel Glamour gives dynamic variant according to different lighting. I think price does matter.



Nonetheless, I bet this fruit princess gloss is immensely eye-catching (“v). Haha, I just feel like to knock her head when I saw my strawberry princess’s scowling face. Hey my dear, What is in your mind? Why my little princess is unhappy? The face remembered me of naïve childhood too, I still don’t understand why I always had the grouchy face in picture when I was a small kid. (“b)


The green calyx of the strawberry (all other fruit princess) is rubber-made, thus soft.


Now I can see a reason why my little princess is unhappy…


Or when I twist her neck long,  heheh  (Happy Halloween btw)


TonyMoly Fruit Princess Gloss is retailing ₩6800/7ml in Korea, inexpensive and lovely, suitable for those who don’t like glittering lip gloss. Anyway I would like to keep this miniature (only 5cm tall) display on table either I’m no longer using it or after finished using it. Sorry, can’t help but again, so cute!

I must say I was attracted by the gorgeous spoke person, Ayumi Lee, a Korean born in Japan, also known as former member of Sugar girl group. Her short hair looks amazingly elegant and classy. The overall presentation of Maquillage Rouge Enamel Glamour is simply magnificent.


Try the latest Maquillage cosmetic online via makeup stimulation by Shiseido, it is so much FUN.


This is non-fragranced 2-in-1 lipstick, a rouge (2.1g) on one end and a gloss (3.8g) on the opposite. My colour pick is PK386, a pink with hint of gold shimmer that looks very natural and lavish.



Surprisingly the fluid lipstick is lightweight yet very pigmented. It should be matted on bare lips quickly unless your lips are primed with lip conditioner/lip balm. Wait for the lipstick fully dried on lips, then apply the shiny gloss on centre part of lips to impart translucent 3D glow. The combination assures you enamel glamorous lips, despite the slight tackiness.



The lipstick is thumb-up long-wearing but the gloss was almost gone after having a meal. If you wear lip balm underneath, both lipstick and gloss would wear off totally after eating a proper meal. Anyway, I would be happy to show off the dazzling tube in makeup room for touch-up.



The lipstick is feeling dry (thus long-wearing), fortunately the gloss attracts moisture and diffuses the appearance of dry lip lines. It costs me ~USD30, not a budget purchase considering the tiny net content, it is rather a convenient and pretty one. Personally, I am still preferring even application of  lipstick, thus unlikely to purchase the similar product in future.

 ^^^^”^ Testing  ^”^^^^









I admit sometimes packaging is holding the key to make me splurge. Without having the pretty packaging, I could have ignored this Lavshuca Liquid Lips totally at Lavshuca counter of HK Sasa store. Without an expectation, I received both the sample as GWP. 




The consistency is thick and moisturizing. It is not sticky at all yet long-wearing. I tried and really love how it appeared on lips. Both pink tones, PK-7 and PK-4 are shimmering dewy, imparts water-shine finish.

Due to the dewy appearance, any lip gloss is excellent to cover any sign of dryness, such as dry lip lines as shown as below picture. Only gripe is, if I apply lip balm underneath, it causes uneven application.

I praise the good pigmentation. The color tones have shown in my below attached testing pictures is quite light because I only applied a sheer layer for natural looking. However, if apply thick enough, the pigmentation is genuinely true as it appears on packaging.

That’s quite pointless applying thickly, after blot off the lip gloss once, it turns to sheer finish. (below testing picture is for PK4) 


Although I do not normally wear lip gloss, but Lavshuca Liquid Lip is really pleasant to use and it soothes the dryness effectively. Even after a proper meal, I would still able to see slight pigmentation on lips, but the moisture had gone and got to re-apply for full and moist lips again. Moreover, It is fairly water-resistant. As I used finger for the application, I need makeup remover for thorough hand cleansing actually.  



I can’t remember the price exactly but I think it is under HKD100. As a drugstore brand, this is lovely. Unfortunately Lavshuca is not available in Thailand, this budget girly cosmetic line by Kanebo is definitely worth to check out. 




Clinique longlast glosswear SPF15


What Clinique said about the Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 is the lip gloss juiced up with 8 hours of lasting shine. Apply it alone or over Clinique lipstick to create a fuller look.

Some dermatologists believe the clear and shinny surface created by lip gloss/lip balm will actually increasing UV rays penetration through the lip surface than on bare lips. Thus, increased the risk of skin cancer. This has no enough scientifically evidences back up, believe it or not, I will feel safer to put those shinny lip product with SPF protection on lips.





Got the Long Last Glosswear as GWP. I feel the gooey consistency is thick, leaving lips tacky but the tiny brush is quite easy to spread a sheer layer on lips. The finish is pretty, the lip gloss itself leaves a smooth water shine film on lip, make the lips look fuller, even the lip lines are less visible.  May be the shade is very natural so it looks like my own lip color and the shimmer particles is not conspicuous, too.

This is my first cosmetic lip gloss so I can’t compare. As the lip gloss is very tacky, so it was moisture and quite long wearing. After a proper meal, it almost gone, but a light snack or warm drink won’t take it away. Besides, this doesn’t stain, at least no visible stain.




I already have plump lip and prefer frosty shine lipstick, but I really like how the lip gloss looks on lips, so probably will try more lip gloss in future. The gift sample contains 2.3ml, can lasts me some time. Normal retail price is THB 700 for 7.3ml, has 18 glittering shades to choose from.

Another impulse purchase!


This is cheap, 85 baht at Boots pharmacy. It can be cheaper during promotion. It is moisturizing that leaves your lips soft and shinny. The oblique design is user friendly that fit to the lip quite well for easy apply. The cap has in-built a tiny shaft that fit the spout to be tightly closed, so the cap always remains hygiene to use and never get messy.


The lip gloss slightly tinted and tastes like the berry cocktail without tackiness. The moisturizing effect was average like lip balm. If I apply  thickly,  the lip looks shiny or oily that seem like you forget to wipe off the oil residue after eating. If I apply sheerly, the lip look dewy, smooth and luscious. I suppose this is what lip gloss does, just I do not like to feel something is stay on my lip. Indeed, I am not a lip gloss person. Besides, this lip gloss does not have any SPF protection, so I only used it at home.


Only a little bit is enough for each application, thus 10g of this lip gloss can last some times. This is my fist lip gloss and probably is the last to me for many lipsticks today also deliver the glossy shine without extra step.


Rating: …))) satisfied Satisfied. Unlikely to buy again.
