Got a deluxe sample (thanks to pinkdolphi & mua ) of it in 10! It's the lightest so I will not use my CDP primer...effect is matte without overly so. Stays on after 16h whole day without touchup. I also apply this powder with my kabuki brush after sunscreen! Certainly getting the refill after finishing my sample :)
I'm so glad I saw the comments here. I bought it yesterday night and my lips never felt softer since. It was a terrible mistake buying Eve Lom's lip balm pot which made my lips tingle and crack :( luckily they exchanged it to a credit voucher for my next purchase.. Have tried a lot n had to said burt's bee sucked too :( This product is slightly overwhelming if you put too much pressure on it and I know it feels nice to have something gliding on your lips constantly but for this balm, just once around the lips will do. And then when you put lipstick on it? Pure magic. 0 dead skin n uber soft lips. Reason for 4 lippies is still the price. :( $20sgd for a lip balm IS exp. (But I was almost crazy enough to buy cle de peau's lip balm which cost $101 because they claimed it can remove pigments from your lips! *shrugs*)
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

I bought this in a set and it wasn't cheap in SG. I made the mistake of getting one closest to my skin shade which #118. 117 was too light so more or less I had no choice :S it looked ok...until I ended work and when I looked at the mirror. Huge shock. My face was 3 shades darker and orangier than my neck and chest. Horrible :( And I did realise something about the finishing powder. You MUST let this foundation dry first before u put it or else I will cakeup like hell. I will recommend using the buffer with a very LIGHT pressure. Or it will jus display yr every pore and makes it look worse before u "set" it. It is best if u use a loose powdr brush to pat it in and dust it off and then u buff it as the finishing. But I realised this has not much oil control :s Hindnote: not sure about the ingredients in their primer but it just does not work for me. It jus irritates me :( I'm happy that I just got mine exchanged and I got the Dior Overcurl :p
HG SCRUB! Best paired with primrose mask for optimum results. Feels like heaven. No regrets
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream

Bought this because my friend hyped about it so much and after reading so many fab reviews, I gave in and bought it. Unfortunately, my dark eye circles remain or less the same. There's no "wow your panda eyes are gone" and I still use the same amount of concealer every morning. Plus the smell, it's something I can't stand. On the plus side, it is easily absorbed and good for moisturising but other than that... People who break out milia seeds easily around the eye area might wanna give this a try. Btw shoutout to astalift concealer: they r really good!!! Better than my cle de peau (which was my HG before this) and at half the price :)
Not bad for a clay mask as I got this as a sample from hk...the content is moist and it takes a while for it to dry completely but other than that it's gentle on my sensitive skin. No weird hot or warm feeling compared to some mask out there like kiehls' over night mask.
On my second tube now :) One that I bought as the comments here convinced me to try it and have not regret yet :) It's better to apply mascara after it dried and it makes my lashes stayed curled + a super powerful volume! Lately I notice my lashes are fuller n longer? Is it due to the use of this? This I do not know but yes, definitely a repurchase for this product.
I went here to buy their cosmetics (loose powder n translucent liquid fdn) and they gave me a full size freebie of this! I already had like 4 cleansers and was sceptical at first how it would work out for me as my skin always felt dry after washing :s or maybe I over exfoliated. I used it only once and it was a totally amazing experience. My skin is soft n supple. Then I applied the rejuvenating mask (freebie too) and OMG. Knew I had to get it. No going back. LOL. I tried a lot of cleansers from SKII, Clarins, Dermalogica and so far I felt this is the best as it promised to deep cleanse :) EDIT*********** Still loving it after 2 months. One thing I realised about this is that with this cleanser, you no longer need to use facial scrubs :D I'm a little unwilling to use the 10ml sample of cleansing milk but it felt good. I love the smell of this product! Finally a HG cleanser :)
This product minimizes the pores on my face and leave it totally supple and hydrated with a healthy shine. Strongly recommend using this with their cleansing cream. It totally made a difference in my skin care regime!!! Now pondering which of their day moisturisers to get....
I can't stop raving about shu uemura brow pencils. They just make brows look so pretty! Mainly the formula only applies when there's some "oil" on eyebrows. So you won't look overdone. And even if that was the case, there's a brush for evening them out!! Love! HG status
A marvellous cleanser that leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and not feeling dry. And it makes my face looks whiter! However do bear in mind that not all SK II products are sutitable for everyone esp ppl with pimples/super dry skin as it alw turns out to be worse. It is best used when your skin is at a peak condition :)

This foundation surprised me because mainly, I never thought it will be this good after using their mousse which wasn't water resistant at all. What's more I tried a little pot of sample and I fell in love with it. I still love Lunasol but this is so good too! I'm using 564 and my skin colour is in between mac's 10 and 20. Applying this with their sponge is fabulous! Strongly recommend their sponge. For SG, the prices have also been revised from SGD 75 to 65 permanently :) stays on for more than half a day!

I was using Nude shade. The SA thought that Nude is good enough for me and promised it wont oxidise. But it did, terribly :( sucks, and I bought a whole tube. .......................................waste of money.
