So having used ZA 2-way all my life, I decided to upgrade my makeup to something slightly higher-end. Great coverage. With a primer underneath, this makes your skin look really good! Gripe: I hit pan fairly quickly on it though, as compared to the ZA 2-way. How much/little product is there in it? Tsk. Having said that - compared to ZA, I don't see how big of a difference it actually makes, but will continue purchasing just because. :)
Ever since L'Oreal discontinued their Blush Delice (I've used Pink Marshmallow for most part of my teenage days), I started looking for a new blush. Was recommended the Sheertone Blush in Pink Swoon, & I must say I really like the colour! It's not an unnatural pink, but more of a sheer pink that looks like a natural flush. It's matte so it doesn't emphasise any large pores, & the colour stays pretty long. I apply the blush at 6+ in the morning & it manages to stay on till about 6 in the evening so that's about 12 hours. If I'm headed out after work, I'll just reapply. No breakout so far from this blush as well, & I'm already on to my second one. Each blush lasts me for over half a year as well! The only problem I have with it is the transparent cap of the packaging has popped off a couple of times so I have to pop it back in.

Did I hear that this has been discontinued?! I absolutely adored this! I have tried plenty of other mascara on the market, L'Oreal, Maybelline, ZA, Christian Dior & even though Christian Dior's Blackout came close, Majolica Majorca's Lash Enamel Glamour NEO is still my HG. The comb applies the formula neatly & evenly, & it doesn't clump as much as those other mascaras with brushes tend to. After curling, I use Majolica Majorca's Base, then just a coat of this & it brightens up my eyes. My lashes are short & straight, so I can really see a difference. I have attempted to layer a few coats before & was asked once if I was wearing falsies, which I wasn't. :) The curl lasts all day, & doesn't smudge! Lastly, as for the removal process - yes, it's tougher to remove than most mascaras but I use Fancl's Mild Cleansing Oil or Biore Cleansing Oil & they do the trick without much trouble at all. I have 2 tubes which I am currently using (one at my house, one at my fiance's house) & I hope they last me a long time!
I've been using this ever since I started applying make-up. So I'd say, 6 or 7 years now? I haven't tried any other 2-way so I can't compare. But it's great for me. It covers well, & it makes my skin looks smooth. I have large pores but the 2-way covers that well. I usually use it dry, & it's good enough. Although my face does get oily after like 3 or 4 hours, I would usually blot with tissue. It doesn't oxidise as much, so it's really value for money! Also, ZA keeps coming up with limited edition casings. So far, I've had the usual blue, the sparkly pink, the sparkly purple, the squarish green one with flowers, & I just bought a new one today! It's gold, & comes with gems for you to stick on. Gorgeous.
I used to use blusher from Wet & Wild, & when L'oreal launched its Blush Delice, I never looked back since! Have been using Pink Marshmallows for years, & it gives me a very natural, slightly shimmery look. My friends didn't know I wore blusher until I told them. They just thought I had a healthy flush. & I LOVE the smell. It's smells gorgeous, like strawberries. & the smell doesn't turn bad, even after a long time! My blusher is finishing again & I may consider changing colour. Perhaps True Rose or something. :)
