A Quick Review on my SAVEE Mini Haul

Spotted a SAVEE sale booth last week. All the masks and eyeshadow were selling for RM1 each and that tempted me to get a few to try.

I have never seen this brand in the market before so I was a bit curious and kinda had some sort of expectation that they're good because it's made in Singapore. That was what stated at the back of the packaginglah.

So walah~ Here are all the masks range that I got:

Let's start with SAVEE Face Mask in

Aloe Vera to Repair, Rehydrate and Anti-Wrinkle

and SAVEE Sleeping Paper Mask in:

Bitter Melon to Regulates Oil Secretion & Anti-inflammation

Milk to Whiten, Rehydrate, Acne and Blackheads Control

Apple Tree to Moisturise, Firm & Face-lift


Then there's the SAVEE 3D Paper Mask Series in:

Nano Platinum Placenta for Skin Rejuvenation

Soy for Spots Elimination

Papaya Enzyme for Exfoliation

So far I have tried the Aloe Vera and Milk masks and find them so-so. I find the Aloe Vera masks too thick(somewhat similar to Watson's face mask) for my liking. The Sleeping Paper Mask series has thinner sheets, so it's slightly more comfortable when putting on. Up till now I have not found any under RM10 masks that felt as comfortable as my favorite BLiv Silk masks.

Anyway, I found that both the masks I tried are scented, the Milk one having don't-know-what odd scent I didn't fancy(>ะด<)

... nothing worth going bananas about. I had two masks in two consecutive days and did not feel much difference they do to my skin. Yeah, they're actually that lousy...

For the eyeshadow, I chose the pastel turquoise, copper, pastel blue and pink~ (The copper one got destroyed a bit on the way home)

Here are the swatches for these eyeshadow:

As you can see the shades turned out moderately pigmented. The copper is just lovely but the pink turned out a much lighter and striking-er than what it looked like in the pan. Not the color that I was expecting. I could not try them earlier at the booth since there weren't testers available...

I can't seem to get the color out for both the pastel blue and turquoise though. Layering did not help much and they don't show on my eyelids even with an eyeshadow base.

The staying power for these eyeshadow is no better. Two hours after application and most of the color has fallen off. Never have one cosmetic brand who would be so thoughtful as to help me save on my makeup remover (-___-)

Overall, I'd say this brand's a tad disappointing. Did not like almost everything about their products but heck, I'm only paying peanuts for these.
