Mascara -Shiseido - Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour NEO mascara
Surreal 11/23/2009 11:59:00 AM
Holds the curl, lengthen lashes, affordable, and never smudges. Fantastic! Wish it could volumise more though. Also kind of hard to remove :(
Needed a cheap pressed powder for my backpacking trip, and this does the job relatively well for its price (about USD6 after discount). The oil control is okay, coverage is okay too. Basically a very normal powder..nothing fantastic. The puff is ridiculously thin though. This is very convenient for people who want their make-up done quickly (like me..I don't really want to lug along my tub of looser powder and big face powder brush on a backpacking trip), but not suitable enough for any other events.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Gloss in Pearadise
Surreal 11/26/2008 12:16:00 AM
Smells great, looks fantastic, staying power is above average. Non-sticky. The subtle pink shade looks natural too..and it smells so good I feel like eating it. Great product!
Hate the packaging because having to screw the cap on and off is a total annoyance..would've preferred a pump model. The coverage is okay. I like that it's very easy to blend and feels very light..and it gives me this healthy, dewy look. Price is a bit high though.
Liquid -Cover Girl - TRUblend Liquid Makeup (12/2007 reformulation)
Surreal 8/20/2008 8:03:00 AM
Does nothing for my complexion..doesn't really cover up my flaws, though it does an okay job of evening out my skintone. Makes my skin oily very easily though..will not purchase again even though it's super cheap. Love the pumping packaging.
Lipstick -Shiseido - The Makeup Shimmering Lipstick SL4
Surreal 4/22/2008 5:43:00 AM
The good thing about this is that it isn't sticky like how some lip glosses are. The colour is gorgeous! It's a very subtle colour, and looks like a very natural of sweet pink. It is quite long lasting..and makes my lips feel moist, smooth, and supple. There's no need for lip gloss after using this! :) Still a bit too expensive for my liking though.
Sunscreen -Garnier - Advanced Daily UV Blocking Lotion SPF 50
Surreal 1/24/2008 8:14:00 AM
First of all, it's really hard to get this product out as the packaging is too hard. Secondly, this lotion is way too thick. Third, when you apply layers, the lotion CLUMPS UP and chunks of white sunscreen appear and it's really hard to remove! What a nightmare of a sunscreen. Edit: After 2 months of usage, oh my god girls PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS!!! It made me face soo oily, and it gave me a severe case of whiteheads!!! I now have to seek a dermatologist for help to get rid of the whiteheads. This is the most nightmarish sunscreen ever!
Highlighters -Revlon - Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion [DISCONTINUED]
Surreal 1/24/2008 8:10:00 AM
I thought this product's really great and I'm on my 3rd tube currently. It makes me skin glow and I love the price and packaging. However, it seems to me that it has GIVEN ME ECZEMA. I still haven't confirmed if this is the culprit..but if it is, it has given me two years of skin-related nightmare. Will not buy this product again for safety. Anyway, it seems that Singapore has stopped stock for this - a new product called "Bare It All Lustrous Lotion" is now in stores instead. The new product is way smaller, and way more expensive. Darn.
VERY EASY TO APPLY! I think this eyeliner works really well for its price. It certainly didn't smudge after more than 10 hours since application. However, it smudges once it comes in contact with water..or tears. Everytime I yawn, some of the eyeliner comes off. The tube also tend to have some kind of sticky, paper-y clumps after 2-3 months of usage. Not the best eyeliner out there, but if you are looking for something that's relatively cheap and yet performs okay, this is something you should buy.
Lip Gloss -T'estimo - Glitter Fluid Rouge Lipgloss - Fall 2005
Surreal 12/15/2007 10:58:00 AM
I bought this in Rose Red, RD-155. This is really expensive and I found the rouge too be too thick and sticky. The colour was over-powering and it looked quite unnatural. I liked the packaging though - the crystal top is really pretty. Other than that, nothing's fantastic about this overly priced product.
Cleansers -Biore - Kao Make-Up Remover Perfect Oil
Surreal 12/14/2007 8:20:00 AM
The price's fair and it smells GREAT! It is the nicest make-up remover I have ever used - a scent of grape all over you. It is also non-invasive. I did not feel any irritation after using this on my eczema-prone skin - this says A LOT because my face often gets itchy after using all kinds of make-up remover. My face did not feel tight or oily. Instead, it felt clean and fresh. Definitely worth a re-buy!
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - SUNPLAY Powdery White SPF PA+++ 47
Surreal 12/14/2007 8:17:00 AM
For its price, I can get better sunscreens. Does the job fairly well but it's nothing fantastic. Might repurchase if I don't find better alternatives.
Eye Shadow -Canmake - Glitter Eyes (1Glitter & 2Colors)
Surreal 12/14/2007 8:14:00 AM
I have this in colour 04, and while the shadow is 'glittery' enough, the colour is really not visible and the palette cracks very easily! I have never dropped the case before but the largest palette broke into many little fragments for no reason. Not worth the money even though it's relatively cheap compared to other brands out there.
Loose Powders -Unlisted Brand - Palgantong Theatrical Powder
Surreal 12/14/2007 8:09:00 AM
I've went through two big pots (30g) of Palgantong Powder. The price is reasonable and the powder does its work! It holds oil well and my skin looks good after the application. It is a little sheer though, and does not offer full-on coverage. I like the packaging but I find the powder puff too big and hard for comfort.
I have this in PK 47. It can become a freaky shade of pink if more than 3 layers are applied - which is a pain because 2 layers are too light. The colour doesn't really go well with my fair Asian skin. It's lasting enough but there are better lip sticks out there.
