Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer works exactly like Laura Mercier's Radiance Foundation Primer, and is somewhat even better in my opinion. Just like LM's Radiance, Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer isn't the kind of primer that's intended to make makeup last for longer, because it doesn't. This primer is specifically designed to brighten your complexion, and OH MY - it will not disappoint! Pixi Beauty Primer gives a lovely, radiant, healthy glow to the face that looks incredibly natural. I agree it evens skintone very well and even minimises any dark areas I have on the face. It's an excellent base for foundation as well. And best thing about it, I don't break out at all with the Beauty Primer unlike Laura Mercier's Radiance - so even more of a winner. Would buy again!

If you're looking for a primer that's designed to make your makeup last throughout the day, this isn't the one I'm afraid. BUT - this radiance primer does what it says - it truly does leave a lovely, illuminating sheen to the face. Looks great under foundation. And for 50ml of product, it's lasted for quite a while! The only let down for me = it's always made me break out, and I'm not usually prone to pimples and spots. Wouldn't buy again for this reason!
Been using this balm for a day and my lips are no longer cracked, sore or dry. Very moisturising and nourishing. Leaves a pleasant, minty sensation on the lips. Brilliant for the winter weather.

A fairly good eye-cream that will help moisten dry under-eye areas. This cream will not diminish dark circles and lines. Wouldn't purchase this cream again partly because of the price and amount of product - 14ml doesn't seem to last very long!

Best brush to use for liquid foundation! No streaks, stipples foundation evenly and easily! FIVE STARS.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #210 Precise Eye Liner (Fine Point)

Mac 210 Eyeliner Brush = precise and exceptional. - A pointed synthetic brush, brilliant for a more controlled, defined line. - Draw thin, thick lining on the lash without a fuss. - Excellent for beginners and those who aren't confident applying eyeliner, like me ;)
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil = Bargain Brow pencil! This product comes in two available colours, "Hazel" (for red hair, fair hair, blondes) and "Dark Brown" (for dark hair, brunettes). - Makes eyebrows appear naturally fuller and defined. - Long-lasting, consistent colour all day. - Nib of pencil soft, easily draws on well. - Included with eyebrow comb on lid, softens and blends your penciling into the eyebrow nicely.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Visibly Clear 2-in-1 wash mask

Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash Mask = SPOTS, NO MORE! - Can be used as a leave-on mask or quick cleansing wash. - With the help of facial/makeup removing wipes beforehand, this mask will effectively cleanse away any remaining dirt or makeup on the face and prevent spots/pimples from appearing. - Leaves your skin feeling cool, fresh and clean. - Friendly to the skin, it doesn't dry mine out (I have normal/combination). - 150ml, this product has lasted me for about 6-7 months. - Very affordable. Side Note: I would recommend others not to solely rely on just this product in your cleansing routine. Continue using facial wipes to remove dirt and makeup, and then apply the Neutrogena mask afterwards to further cleanse away any traces that still remains on your face. Make sure to use moisturising cream too!
Lipstick -GOSH - Velvet Touch Lipstick #134 Darling
completelynumby 4/17/2012 10:03:00 AM
GOSH "Darling" = has put me off from wearing nude lipsticks altogether. - Feels quite heavy, sticky on the lip. - Nude colour not as highly pigmented and intense as it claims. - Doesn't last for long. - Not at all moisturising. Leaves dry, awful lipstick marks on inside of lips afterwards.
If you're considering a pink lipstick, Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Fuschia is one I will definitely recommend. - A deep, vivid magenta colour. Very pigmented. This is a colour you can wear all year round. - Very moisturising in comparison to any Mac lipstick. Hardly any dry marks on corners of the mouth. - Nice consistency. Not heavy on your lips, at all. - One application is just enough. - Affordable than any Mac, Chanel lipstick. Better than any drugstore brand. One of my favourite pink lipsticks to date.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Plus

Mac MSF Natural = HOLY GRAIL WORTHY. Don't be put off by the price, not even for a second. This is a product that is most definitely worth the money. - If you prefer not wearing a lot of makeup, the MSF natural is a great choice for a light, sheer coverage. - Makes your face appear flawless and perfectly natural. No exaggeration. - Is an excellent setting powder for your tinted moisturiser, foundation and/or concealer. - Product hardly leads to any breakouts when applied without any foundation underneath. Handy tips: - Best applied with a dense makeup brush i.e. kabuki brush. - To help the product prolong throughout day (because it is such a sheer powder), use a long-lasting primer beforehand.
