I love love love these liners. I first got Desires and Devices (the dark green one). It was amazing. Beautiful colour. The brush is excellent, which makes the application so easy. The staying power is excellent. It makes me go back to MAC and bought Defiantly Feline (the brown bronze one), which I love as well! Good stuff! Shame it's limited edition.
Liquid -Christian Dior - Diorskin Nude Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

This is a great foundation! It makes my skin looking fresh and glowing all day (+10 hours). This is better than the other two foundations that I have been using lately (NARS Sheer Glow and Chanel Teint Innocence). The coverage is decent and it does not transfer whatsoever. The only down side of it is that I have two blot at least twice a day. But it's humid and generally over 30 degrees over here. Hopefully it will get better during winter.
It is a simple floral scent. I got a large bottle of eau de toilette (100ml) at a pretty cheap price. It's the sort of fragrance that you spray as much as you want without hurting your wallet. There isn't exactly anything special with it. But I guess I will repurchase it if I can't find any better cheap scents.
I think I am the minority here. It smells fresh... and smells like banana, which is my least favourite fruit on earth. There is no chance I am buying this. Nope.
It was really an impulsive purchase. When my (now) fiance first started dating, we took the Star Ferry very often. So the name is very romantic and endearing for me. It's not really the usual kind of colour that I would wear. I am more of a cream pink/red kind of girl. But this one works surprisingly well for me. The purple matches with my skintone and the glitters are not overpowering. The colour works beautifully for me on both fingers and toes.
This is probably my favourite product from the MAC limited edition stuff in past 12 months. I was first more attracted to the name. Sounds like the best product to put on on a sunny morning, don't you think? The colour itself is gorgerous. I never really like coral-toned blushes but I am kind of bored with my usual pink blushes. So this is the perfect alternative for me since it doesn't come off too coral-ish. Looks like a healthy summery glow on my cheeks. This thing stays on very well and it is not oily or anything like that. Great stuff!
I always love lipstains so I was very excited when I saw Mac releasing these. I have so many lip products so I just let myself to get one. I was between Tomorrow's Coral and A Classic. I find these two colours similar but the prior is slightly lighter. I got A Classic at the end because of the name. Come on, this is a killer.
It did not disappoint me either. When I use lipstains, I don't like slapping on a great amount of product all over my lips. I prefer to apply light on the whole lips, and then concentrate on the middle part. I don't find it drying or anything like that, but putting a light lipgloss on top isn't a bad idea. It lasts at least for 6 hours (I haven't tried to push it to its limit yet, I will try!). Good stuff.

This is pretty amazing. My kind-of-frizzy hair is tamed by this serum. It doesn't leave my hair oily but a nice light glow to my long dyed hair. One pump is just enough for my hair. And I LOVE THE SCENT! It's so mild and pleasant. I can't stop sniffing the opening of the pump. (Yes, it's kind of weird, I realise that.) I will definitely repurchase it.
Lip Gloss -Bourjois - Effet 3-D Glossy Lipstick Beige Theoric 16
Vittoriak 5/2/2010 2:07:00 PM
I love this lipgloss. The perfect 'my lips but better' colour. I don't really find any glitters in this thing, and that is why I love it so much. The texture is nice. Not overly watery, not super sticky either. One thing bad about it is the packaging. It is nice, but the words and pattern on the tube comes off easily.
This is a wonderful product. The colour is somewhat of a darker golden bronze colour. It makes gold eyeshadow shows up even more brilliantly. The texture is extremely creamy and glides on my lids like butter. The pigment is intense. The eyeshadow is long-lasting (But I always put a primer first) and does not transfer at all. I love it!
Blush -MAC - Prim & Proper - Liberty of London [DISCONTINUED]

When I first looked at it, I immediately thought "The colour is like the middle of the Benefit Dandelion and Coralista!" Of course, there is a light brownish tone to it and there is no shimmer because it's a matte. And I love it even more because there is no shimmer! I can achieve a natural, slightly 'just been out in the sun' looks. It lasts all day too! I am so tempted to buy one more for backup.
I got this with discount so it was pretty cheap. Yay! With the cheek side, it gives a bronzey cheek look which is pretty good for the summer. I even use it as a contour. One down side is that it dries kind of quick so it is a little hard to blend.
As a lip gloss, it is amazing. I use the both sides. There is a little bit of tangling sensation when I put the stain side on, but it was acceptable. Then I put the gloss side on top, and it gives my lips a beautiful shiny look. It's not too shimmery and over the top. It's just natural and beautiful. I love it!

I guess you can see how not amazed I am. Hahahha.
Eye Shadow -Canmake - JewelStar Eyes eyeshadow jelly
Vittoriak 3/25/2010 9:25:00 AM
The texture is great. It's like a gel. I got #07, which is basically a get gold glitter base. It creates a glittery glossy eyes effect, which IS very beautiful. But it creases horribly. So, no, will no repurchase.
It is a sweet fragrance for spring. Kind of girly, but it is appropriate to wear for school or work. The bottle is simple and clean with a touch of sweetness. Yes, I agree the scent is not that elegant, but it is easy to wear. The staying power is pretty good. I will repurchase it.
