I love, LOVE this little brush! It gives very even blush application and its bristles are soo soft despite being densely packed. It's very handy to bring out for touchups, you can just dump it in a small purse- it's so small and has its own pouch. Great price and a definite repurchase! 5 lippies in all aspects!
My favourite peach lipgloss! I like pairing this with my Shu P Peach 47 glow-on. This is in the tube, as others have described, a milky peach but it doesn't make me look washed out, as milky shades usually do. The texture of this lipgloss is quite thick, as with other NARS l/g but for some reason, doesn't stay on my lips for more than half an hour. I would still repurchase if this was available in Singapore though. It gives my lips a sweet, peachy sheen.
Concealers -Delux Beauty - Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

I got two of these in "Buttery" and "Snowy" courtesy of a CP by abfajeanius! (thanks so much Jean!). They seem small but you really don't need alot to cover undereye circles and blemishes. You can mix and match the different shades to find your exact colour match. When blended in properly, and this takes ALOT of care, it looks very much like your own skin colour and not concealer so it's wonderful but it is a chore to get the technique right so one lippie off there.
Concealers -MAC - Studio stick concealer [DISCONTINUED]
devilina 2/16/2005 5:35:00 AM
One of the best concealers I have used. The SA recommended NW20 for me, and that made my undereye area look brighter for awhile but then turned greyish, so I decided to try NC20 and I am satisfied with it because it looks more natural :) MAC Studio Stick concealers are reasonably priced, and very creamy so it blends incredibly well. For some reason though, I go through these sticks very fast eventhough they seem to contain alot of product(said this after twisting the thing full up). My other concealers usually see me through a year at most.
I really like this palette eventhough some have said it is similar to the Jade Blossom Look Book. I have that as well but I think for an avid Stila collector, you shouldn't mind too much as the clutch type is really quite unlike Stila's usual packaging. The buttery-gold shade is much too soft for some reason. Mine practically disintegrated and made a mess in my makeup box when I travelled with it recently and this was even before I had a chance to test ANY of the shades! Grrr...
This looks very similar to Nars Mata Hari in the pan. Maybe a tad brighter but definitely close. What really got me to buy this was the pink chrome packaging. It's lovely but it looks like it needs alot of care to maintain its perfect shiny surface. Nevertheless, if this wasn't LE, I would repurchase- I am even thinking of stocking up! Beautiful pink blush in a beautiful pink casing at an affordable price :)
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lipgloss in First Blush [DISCONTINUED]
devilina 12/15/2004 5:52:00 AM
I had this CP'ed by a fabulous swapper(thank you Ngoc!). This is without a doubt one of my favourite l/gs. The colour has been described all too well by countless reviews below so I shall not attempt to describe it. All I can say is, it makes your lips a very pretty shade of rose- just like how healthy lips should look like! And it also looks like it would naturally work on anyone, as mentioned. All in all, a product which everyone should have, considering the price.
This is my very first Shu Uemura blush which was CP'ed by a sweet MUA'er (thank you so much Chrissy!). Bought it due to all the great reviews and no doubt, it is every bit as beautiful as everyone says. It literally took my breath away when I saw it. It's *red* with gold shimmers in the pan but on the cheeks when applied with a soft hand, the pink in it is more noticeable. It gives a healthy, dewy finish- doesn't even look like I have powder blush on. Now I can't wait to get P Red 14 and P Pink 30!
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Lipgloss in Glam
devilina 8/17/2004 9:26:00 AM
I really like this one. It's a sheer pinkish red on me with a sexy wet sheen! Doesn't have a sticky texture and decent staying power. Quite moisturizing as well. No SPF though which is a pity.
I don't get why this mascara gets such low reviews. I may not know much about mascaras since this is my very first but I do like the way my lashes look after using it: extremely defined - just like the name. I don't know... dolly lashes just don't appeal to me.
For me, Skinflash can't get any better! I always wanted a lightweight yet opague liquid concealer. I tried YSL Touche Eclat which was completely useless. Cream concealers provide good coverage but they also cake too much and so far, the best performing cream concealer has been Becca which doesn't crease much but there's only so much you can use before it actually starts to look unnatural. I didn't think any liquid concealer could adequately cover my horrible dark circles until I discovered this! Yes! HG of HGs! I bought 001(Rose) as 002(beige) had gone out of stock. Under normal circumstances, I would have gone for 002 because I think it would look more natural but I decided to try something different and no regrets!. I use it under my eyes(fantastic coverage and completely natural looking- no need for another concealer), my T-zone and cheeks to highlight and I look like I'm absolutely in the pink of health!!! It has a heavy pricetag but hey, if it works, it's worth it!
Pressed Powders -Baby Pink - Face Powder in Natural Beige
devilina 8/6/2004 5:20:00 AM
I just got this yesterday and I'm very impressed with the performace and the price. I chose Natural Beige because I was hoping for some coverage. The colour is only just a little darker than Translucent that I think PPPs would be able to use it too. A definite re-purchase!
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moisture Shine Gloss in Whisper
devilina 7/27/2004 9:04:00 AM
I got this as an extra in a swap(thanks to TenaE!). At first look, I thought the colour would wash me out but it's turned out to be quite nice, made my lips a frostier version of it's natural colour. Very pretty for the day.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Lites in Marshmallow Dream
devilina 7/20/2004 9:11:00 AM
Just got this off an auction. Smells so good! Makes me want candy :P It's a clear gloss but will be having no regrets because of the smell alone! I would buy this again but too bad Bonne Bell is not available in Singapore and what's worse, this is LE :'(
These are so wonderful, I just had to add my review! I bought this in Peach off an auction. On me, this looks like the colour I blush naturally, and it blends so easily. I followed the instructions given here by another reviewer- put a drop onto blush brush and swirl it on your cheeks and cheekbones. I dont want to use another gel blush but this- ever!! 5 lippies in all aspects!
