Klara Cosmetics is a very popular brand over in Australia so Singaporeans like me are in for a treat now that they have launched in Singapore! The brand is now available at SaSa as well as online! Read on to hear my take on this brand, straight from the land of Kangaroos.
Klara Pro Eyeshadow Palette ($28.90 SGD) in No. 2 is for every girl who loves her warm tones. This palette is filled with browns, reds, oranges, which reminds me of autumn (and a cheaper version of Urban Decay’s Naked Heat). Unfortunately, I find those colors hard to pull off on my eyes/skin tone so warm tones usually would not normally appeal to me. That said, as a beauty junkie, I endeavor to experiment and constantly challenge myself to use colours I would never use in a million years.
If you’re scared of reds like me, try keeping the intense color below your crease. The reddish pink shade is surprisingly easy to use. It was sheer so I did not have to worry about overdoing the eyeshadow. The third shade from the left was rather sheer and it took many swipes for me to build the pigmentation, aka why the swatch looks like a mess. I prefer the shimmer shades as they seem to glide on smoother.
For a more intense look, you need to go back in the palette a few times to build it up. There is no doubt that you can create a variety of makeup looks with this palette — a neutral day look or a smokey look for a night’s out. I can’t wait to play around more with this palette!
The liquid lipsticks applied smoothly and set almost immediately. Once they dry down, they will not budge so you can eat, drink, kiss, whatever, without worrying about transfer. However, it emphasized my lip lines and it did not look good at all. I have naturally dry lips so my lips tend flake and often require constant reapplication of lip balm. Hence, the liquid lipstick may not emphasize your lip lines as much as me.
Klara Mini Kiss Proof Lips in Vixen Plum is a mini sized liquid lipstick, which is a great way to try the product without buying the full size. The purple colur is a bit cray for everyday wear but perfect for those days when the eyes are simple and you want all attention to be on the lips. 😉
Kiss Proof Liquid Matte Lipstick in Sienna Nude 07 is a brownish pink and it is perfect everyday colour!
Kiss Proof Liquid Matte Lipstick in Totally Nude 15 is a a pale pink-mauve that resembles Kylie Jenner’s Candy K. So if you’re in the market for a dupe, this might be up your alley. I didn’t test this colour on my lips because I would resemble a corpse with this shade. I passed it on to my friend and she experienced long wear time, lasting through her meals. She didn’t find it tacky or uncomfortable to wear at all. Overall, we both liked the Kiss Proof Liquid Matte Lipstick and very much love the pleasant vanilla scent. My dear readers, please definitely do consider checking them out if you want luscious looking lips that stay the entire day.
Topaz Diamond 01 is an interesting formula. It has diamond like iridescent particles which are literally bling on your lips. Wear this the next time you’ve a night’s out with your girlfriends and trust me, everyone will be asking what you have on your lips. How do I know? The first day I wore this, my colleague immediately remarked my lips, saying the colour was very unique. And yes, I wore it to work because who cares if it’s inappropriate for day. 😛
