Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

This is the only eyeshadow base that keeps my eyelids from getting oily during the day. I have tried Urban Decay primer potion, Mac paint pot and they don't work on me at all. My eyeshadows would crease before noon! This actually kept my eyelids matt for most part of the day. I apply this at 7am and by maybe 6pm, i can see a tiny bit of shine. Not the usual coat of grease in the fold of my crease though. This is fragrance free, a major plus for me. The texture is very lightweight and upon application, my lids feels dry and matt and does not feel silky/silicony like UDPP. It gives my eyeshadow a just applied look all day. I would repurchase this forever, its really hard for me to find something that works.

This is amazing and i would repurchase for sure. I got this in dark brown, initially i thought it may not be dark enough, but it is an almost black dark brown, looks natural but defines. Black liners don't work for me so i usually go for dark brown. Pros: Long-wearing, does not budge all day even though i have oily eyelids Fine brush tip, very easy to use Inexpensive More sanitary as you twist for more product to come out at the tip
I have this in nude, its a love sheer milky pink. Applies well, not streaky, looks like Opi's bubble bath. Lovely

I have this in fresh market apple. The scent is amazing, my favourite. Too bad they have discontinued it :( The texture is very light, don't feel greasy at all but does not seem feel moisturizing either. But i would buy it just for the scent!

Amazing if you use on the dry parts of your face. When i first got it, i used it all over (T zone, dry cheeks) and ugh, i look oily and disgusting. Now that i'm using it on the dry parts, my cheeks, they don't look dry and parched as much. I love how dewy my cheeks look. I got this in bare radiance (NC 25) and it matches perfectly. If you look very closely, it contains fine shimmers. It definitely looks more natural compared to Revlon's photoready. The texture is pretty thick and also alittle hard to blend. Sometimes it'll dry before i'm done blending and i'll see a whitish patch on my skin.
I love this for my accent nail. I apply 2 to 3 coats and apply a nude colour to my other nails. Lovely. This and China Glaze snow globe are my most used glitter polishes. It contains pink glitters of different sizes suspended in a clear polish. To remove, i use Bourjois remover, the kind that you dip your finger into the pot. Even then, it took at least a minute of soaking and scrubbing with my nails to remove it.

I'm using daily aloe shampoo. Does not work for my fine dry asian hair. Made my hair coarse and something i don't know how to describe, like thick and sticky coating... i'm using this as my brush cleaner now.

Amazing! I love burning this. Feels yummy and fresh at the same time.
I've been using baking soda as a body scrub and loving it. It leaves my skin clean and smooth at the same time. I started using this when i was getting skin allergies and did not want to use my normal body scrub. I figured this is "natural" and would not cause a reaction. I heard about using baking soda as a scrub from NYCgeorgette (Youtube). She has super sensitive skin and her beautician recommended this as a face scrub. I too has been loving how my skin feels after using this. Plus this is a two in one, i did not have to use body wash before using this as a scrub. Saves time and feels really nice. Alternatively you can add this to your regular shower gel for a lighter scrub. Highly recommended! This is my HG scrub.
I first tried this when i receive a piece of this as a gift. I really liked it, it left my skin very hydrated and soft after. This is a very saturated sheet mask, I like leaving it on for at least half an hour, its more effective this way. Just make sure that you remove it as soon as it starts to dry off. One thing i don't like about sheet masks are that because they are very saturated, if you are not lying down, the liquid tends to collect around your chin and may even drip. This is really annoying to me which puts me off using them. I did stop using sheet masks for a while because of this reason only, but recently went back to loving it again. I feel sheet masks really hydrates, my skin don't feel so soft after using the masks that comes in a tube. If the mask is still very saturated after half an hour on your face, i sometimes use it on my decollege area. Recently found places selling singles and bought different types to try. These normally sell in a box of 10 and are quite inexpensive. They are made in Taiwan so remember to stock up if you holiday there, its much cheaper to buy in Taiwan.
Omg... I used it for the first time... after more than half an hour and my skin is still greasy, has not sunk into my skin at all! I had to use two paper towels to wipe it off :( I am so shocked.and i have really dry skin Update: I don't think i can use this. Its so creamy and thick that it just doesn't absorb into my skin, I have to use a paper towel to wipe the grease off before i can put on my clothes. The scent is more herbally, nice but not fantastic.
A nice product: Nice light fragrance (would have preferred fragrance free) Gel consistency, lightly foaming Does not need much, will last quite a long time Gentle non drying on my dry cheeks doubt it removes makeup, i use this in the morning and after removing makeup with cream cleanser
I got this in the new packaging, the product name is the same. I have dry hair and oily scalp. Tried using this with and without normal conditioner and really love it. Without conditioner, it detangles well although my hair gets abit dry throughout the day, especially in airconditioned rooms. With conditioner, its moisturizing without weighing it down. It gives a very fine mist, another plus but the spray is quite difficult to press but gets alittle better after some use. I would say use this after conditioner if you have dry hair. I'll use this alone on lazy days but its definitely not enough for dry hair. One thing i absolutely love about this besides being non greasy, has a very light fruity/fresh scent, is it seems to keep my hair from smelling bad throughout the day. At the end of the day, my hair just smells of nothing, which is good! Usually by the end of the day, my hair smells ... i don't know maybe it picks up the smells of the environment that i was in during the day. This is absolutely one of the most important thing in a hair product - that it keeps my hair smelling if not nice, keeps it from smelling bad.
I tried a sample of this and liked it. This is the only massage bar that i actually like. It contains powder so does not feel as greasy as all the other massage bars. I love how my skin feels after using it. It smells very calming and nice. I would purchase this. Update: oops, i just found out this is a body butter and i'm suppose to wash it off...

Love the smell but not the texture, it feels thick, greasy and waxy. Plus massage bars do not melt in airconditioned rooms. There is just not enough body heat to melt it with my hands. They are also generally very greasy and gets on my clothings and table etc anywhere i touch after using it.
