[[ADV]] Melliesh Blush in 06 [Clear Lavender] VS Candy Doll [Marshmallow Purple] [@ Labellepiece!]

Posted in Candy Doll, labellepiece, MELLIESH, POPTEEN, Tsubasa Masuwaka, Yui Kanno by Jae on January 10, 2011

And I’m back again today with even more Melliesh love, courtesy of the gorgeous girls at Labellepiece who also sponsored yesterday’s review! 😀 Click on the banner above to head to their site! ❤

This is Melliesh 06 [Clear Lavender] which is supposed to act as a highlight powder for the t-zone and under eye area!

Voted #3 by the POPTEEN readers in the February 2011 issue, the highlighter is very smooth and very very fine. It also contains little specks of glitter in it – I have to emphasize again that the powder is very very fine but surprisingly, did not highlight fine lines under my eyes.

I don’t usually prep my bottom eyelids because that area is especially sensitive but so far so good with this powder – quite unlike my Candy Doll powder.

One thing I immediately realized was that it’s quite similar to Candy Doll’s Marshmallow Purple (Click HERE to read my review on Marshmallow Purple!) in terms of shade.

That’s right, this is a side by side comparison of the two powders with Melliesh on the left and Candy Doll on the right.

If you’d look carefully, you’ll see that in terms of diameter Melliesh definitely takes the cake – one thing though, Melliesh contains 4 g of product but Candy Doll doesn’t actually state how much product there is so I cannot must an accurate comparison of price, in case you were interested..

This here is a comparison swatch between the two with Candy Doll on the left and Melliesh on the right and I’m going to be entirely honest right now and say that between the two, there really isn’t much of a difference at all in terms of shade.

In terms of texture and pigmentation however, there definitely is.

My Candy Doll swatch took me about five swipes of my finger without blending while my Melliesh swatch took me three. Additionally, when using my MAC brush on the Candy Doll powder, I’d have to draw about three to four lines down the pan to catch enough product while with Melliesh, I’d only need two short swipes to have a lot of product on my brush.

Candy Doll, when used on the under eye area didn’t seem to be able to effectively cover my dark eye rings while my Melliesh powder did a pretty good job of it. Here’s a close up of it before I blended it out.

It neutralized my dark rings pretty well, didn’t it?

So there we go dear! 😀 This highlight powder is really quite effective and is only 26.50 SGD at Labellepiece (They’re based in Singapore so bye bye crazy shipping) and if you use the code SMUB, you’ll be able to enjoy a 5% discount with a minimum spending of 20.00 SGD. Score! ❤

  4. […] heard of some girls highlighting under their eyes, is that true? Absolutely! Remember in my Melliesh Highlight Powder in Clear Lavender review, I said that it works well for that purpose? That’s because the slight purplish tinge would […]

      • jodie said, on January 19, 2011 at 5:53 pm

        Very good very good! I stay in sengkang very convenient!! 😀
        After that get the money from the dance and spend it on Ponggol Nasi Lemak (which is at kovan so weird LOL)

      • Jae said, on January 20, 2011 at 9:49 am

        :3 Is that Nasi Lemak good? The only one I’ve ever really tried was the one at Jurong East and that one was AWESOME. :3
        I like having the nuts and ikan bilis that come with the rice. Shiok!

  6. jodie said, on January 20, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    YES! AWESOMENESS! I never tried Jurong East though!
    I always order with the fish and ladies finger with it, omnomnomnomnom soooo good!!

    • Jae said, on January 21, 2011 at 9:38 am

      You’ve GOT to try it babe! XD I always skip the fish because I’m too lazy to remove the bones? So I’ll just go with the potato patty and the curry veggies.. And a hot dog too. :3
      >_< Damn, I'm hungry nowwwwwww

      • jodie said, on January 21, 2011 at 12:48 pm

        HOHOHO I will 😀
        WHY??? fish is so good!!! omnomnomnomnomnom
        Dammit I’m hungy too ><~
        Bring me there man!! Haha
        What's the name of the shop?

      • Jae said, on January 22, 2011 at 9:17 am

        XD Too many bones!!!
        I’d eat it if it were a fillet but then it would defeat the whole purpose of having the fish because well, that’s what nasi lemak is for mah.
        XDDD I don’t remember the name of the shop maaan! wait wait, I’ll go check it up and let you know cause the last time I ate at that stall was like, 5 years ago. XD

  7. jodie said, on January 22, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    It’s called too many bones? 😮 Oh no it’s not.. LOL
    True.. Plus the nasi lemak fish is so yummy omnomnomnom
    Hehe okay! 😀

    • Jae said, on January 24, 2011 at 9:36 am

      Whee! Nasi Lemak… And girl, you’ll totally have to eat all your fav food like, now man…. Cause when you’re in Aus, all you’ll get in the pirated versions of our local food :3

      • jodie said, on January 25, 2011 at 5:12 pm

      • Jae said, on January 26, 2011 at 9:08 am

        Hurhur. You know, they used maggi noodles + laksa seasoning and called it Singapore laksa.
        I laughed until I fell off my chair. XD
