I got the colour 104 because the grey and black looks beautiful together. Howver, the colour payoff is not that good and also there's too much fall offs when applying on eyes. The shimmers is also too chunky for my likings.

A foundation that glides on smoothly and have a medium coverage. Able to conceal pimples marks and mild dark under-eye circles. There a variety of colours to choose from and texture is creamy and smooth. Pity that it doesn't have SPF in it.
Skincare - Face -La Roche Posay - Thermal Spring Water
SnowJaz 7/12/2008 1:15:00 AM
I like this thermal spring water as it refreshes the face and makes the skin feels moist. I use it as a mask for my face 1-2 times weekly. Especially food for calming down imflamed pimples. I personally prefer this thermal spring water as it contains Selenium which is a trace element with natural anti-free radical properties, it protects the cells from oxidative stress (helps anti-skin aging).
I got the smallest tub (49g) and this vaseline is very useful. I use it for my lip as lipbalm, use this to pick up e/s pigments, my mosquitos bites, on some small and light scratches (thanks to my cats)...When my mum dye her hair, I apply some on the hairline to prevent staining. A mutipurpose babe!
Sunscreen -Kose - Whitist Day Protector SPF50 PA++
SnowJaz 7/12/2008 1:01:00 AM
This sunscreen is non-greasy and it doesn't break me out. But it's not enough as moisturiser, I would need to apply moisturiser before I apply it. Good primer coz it leaves the skin quite smooth. But I can feel a bit of stuffiness when I wore this, would prefer something that gives lighter feel. But still a good product.
This colour doesn't like me. I swatched it on my hands many times but the colour just refused to show up, it gave me shimmers only. Really needs a coloured base for such type of sheer eyeshadow. I am NC25.
Initial use of this cream on the 1-5 days was very good, it did flatten out the pimples, but subsequent use of the cream on the pimples after 2 weeks or more, this cream loses the ability to control the pimples. It started to take longer for pimples to dry up and "ripen". Also, it's too expensive for a pimple cream.
Initially , I have breakout from this white lady, but I realised that it's because I used more than 2 drops of it. This white lady does help lighten my pimples & acnes scars after they healed pretty good and fast. It's texture is light and non oily. It's very affordable, coz a 10ml bottle can last quite long.
Initially, was debating to buy this or the Kanebo Blanchir, but choose this because Taiwan forums have raved that the whitening effect is faster, I just wanted to get rid of my scars fast. The texture is watery and light and not sticky, so it's very refreshing to use. The down side is that alcohol smell is very strong. But it's overall performance is quite good.
Got this exfoliating gel because I have some breakouts and wanted to get rid of the dead skin. This exfoliating gel has beads inside and will turn warm when massaged. After using I find that the blackheads & whiteheads on the nose and the side of the nose is lesser. What I like most is, it's very mild and my face doesn't feel tight after washing.
This powder facial wash is my everyday staple. It washes really clean and doesn't make my skin feel tight after washing. A hugh bottle(100g) can lasts quite long coz I just need to pour out the powder about the size of 5 cents coins per wash. It lathers easily and smells great!
I bought this in 2 colours, peach and yellow. I have very bad dark eye rings and this 2 colours are suppose to neutralize the colour of the dark circles. However, the colour is too light to do anything even if I rub the sticks on the dark circles a few times. The sticks are actually quite creamy and not drying but coverage wise is as good as nothing. Maybe good for those with very mild dark circles. I am NC 25 Asian.
This product is only 3 stars because my taste for pigmented eyeshadow grow and this eyeshadow is just not pigmented enough. However, I would say this is a good eyeshadow for those looking for light makeup for school, work or for a trip to nearby mall. The colour would show up more if you have a eyeshadow base applied first and it will also makes the staying strength of the eyeshadow longer. This series have very obvious simmer and gliters, those who do not like it might want to stay away.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre
SnowJaz 6/19/2008 4:17:00 AM
This is my all time favourite lipgloss. I love their colours and also their lip gloss is moisturising but not sticky. The gloss has very beautiful sparkling shine as the the simmers in the lip gloss reflects the light off the lips. The colour is slightly pigmented and can be wear alone without lipstick.
Concealers -Revlon - Age Defying Concealer With Botafirm ] [DISCONTINUED]
SnowJaz 6/19/2008 4:15:00 AM
I an NC 25 Asian and I love this concealer! I got this concealer when Revlon just launch the Age Deying series. Even though this may not be the best of all concealers but I find that it is very suitable for my needs. I have dark circles under my eyes and also wrinkes, so I tend to choose those concealer that have coverage and moisturing. This concealer is the answer, because it has wrinkles minimising effect and good coverage for my dark circles. This is what I do when I apply the concealer. First apply a thin layer of eye cream and then apply this concealer with ring finger lightly, top up more when you need more as the coverage can be built up. A very worthy and value for money product.
