Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Nutra Sonic Face Brush by Nutra Luxe MD.

I got this from https://www.beautyattic.com (Speedy delivery for international :) ) Much cheaper than nutrasonic. With many different speeds and 3 brushes comes with it. Only down side is that the battery life doesn't seem that good and keep having to charge it T_T Anyway I love using the body brush for absorption of products to large area that you're just too lazy to massage. Does what it does for the face too, except too frequent use on the face is tooo dry for my skin! :) I'm sure this is much better and affordable than the clarisonic! Maybe the battery life isn't as good though. Charge for 2 days and it still isnt' fully charged?! Value for money!
This product works to see some effect. Makes your lash grows longer. Slightly but not super long. Say 20%?. Doesn't thicken your lashes though. However, when using this I noticed my lash dropped too. Maybe because too much was growing??? HOWEVER THE BAD THING IS THAT WHEN YOU STOP USING YOU NO LONGER SEE THE EFFECTS :( .... This doesn't dry your skin or make your eyelids darker in color. I have nutra lash MD and it works even better than this. However it darkens your eyelids and the areas around your eyes!!! Looks like eyebags so I stopped. Makes the skin around it slightly dry too. and I have sensitive eye so I have a tendency to rub my eye vigorously worsening the sensitive skin around it after Nutralash... Oh but with Nutralash I noticed a voluminizing effect. Slightly like more eyelashes growing on the area slightly above where my eyelashes grow usually. 1-2 strands? I used for about a week before stopping. Lash boosting serum definitely doesn't have long term effect but it is better for sensitive skin IF you can be bothered to apply everyday.. While after weeks of not using nutralash, my eyelashes have become shorter but I still see 1-2 strands of eyelash above the normal area where my eyelashes grow, so I think this works better, but makes my skin sensitive :( So make your choice :P
I bought this buck for 26 Singapore dollars and I heard you can get it at 20 dollars at CGH. I have a love hate relationship with this. When I first started using it, it made me peel, breakout and I had perfect skin after that in 2 months or less. So I started to get lazy and decided to stop using it... Now that I have gone back on the product for almost 2 months it doesn't seem to be that effective as it first was where it purged my pimple.. I don't know. It's been 2 months and I'm still trying. A week ago, I tried this with benzoyl peroxide and it STINGED like hell and killed 2 pimples bumps I had immediately!! After that I started peeling like crazy. And when I peeled the hyperpigmentation faded slightly. :) Ooh But my skin was red for 2 days?? And that's coming from someone who doesn't really have sensitive skin. I'm still using this now. Will update! :)
This product is great for sensitive skin, as I used it after my face was peeling and it didn't sting like some other moisturiser I used. This essence has a light texture that is not greasy and leaves no sticky after feeling. The "moisture" remains only for a while after a while it feels like there is absolutely nothing on your face... My complain is that this is definitely not moisturising enough for my dry to normal skin especially over the night..I guess you should get anight cream .Not sure if I can really see the "moisturizing effect" on the flakey spots. I had to use La Roche-Posay's cream for skin made dry by products.. That was REALLY moisturising :) However I think this product would be great for oily skin, summer wear or day use. But it costs 49sgd!! Not sure if it justifies the cost....Since I don't see much effect besides the beautiful pump, texture and smell
Mascara -Shiseido - Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing

GOD THIS SUCKS SO BAD. WORSE MASCARA I'VE EVER USED. SMUDGES SO BADLY. AFTER HEARING THE HYPE ABOUT MAJOLICA MAJORCA I TRIED THIS...BUT IT WORKS LIKE A NORMAL MASCARA BUT SMUDGES SOO SOO SOO BADLY. NOT WORTH THE PRICE. DO NOT BUY. WILL NEVER BUY MASCARA FROM THIS BRAND EVER AGAIN.
THIS CANMAKE HIGHLIGHTER GRADIATION HAS SURVIVED CLUBBING TEST. the powder does not turn into dust or shatter upon dancing in my bag like all my other canmake palettes ( eyeshadow , blush...<- yes they all became powdery and had to be thrown for the mess it was causing) it's cheap and works really well!! would buy it again :)
Eye Shadow -Canmake - Glitter Eyes (1Glitter & 2Colors)

I had a couple of these. My favourite was 03. It looked really good on me. The only thing is that yes, as mentioned..All canmake palettes crack really easily and they turn into powder if u bring them around... Okay I had it in my bag during clubbing...But still.... 3 or 4 of my canmake palettes shattered into dust :( and i had to replace it because i loved the color of one of the blush so much..the plasic cracks easily too!
I love Canmake. I had 2 or 3 of these Cheek gradiation as the color went well with my asian skin and looked great. Theeres a highlighter to match too. Color looks gorgeous. Worth every penny or so I thought... Only downside is that...EVERYTIME I BROUGHT THIS THINGS TO CLUB AND LEFT THEM IN MY BAG AS I DANCED AROUND THEY GOT SHATTERED INTO POWDER EVERYTIME... and I was so heartbroken of course =_= Ever since then I've got other blush (Boujouis) that won't shatter into powder with some jumping around..
Loose Powders -Canmake - Canmake Micro Loose Powder
deypherus 1/1/2010 1:29:00 PM
I thought I would try this since my friend recommended it. This is indeed a micro loose powder that's subtle and not very obvious. I have a clinque loose powder and even though it's transparent it makes my face look white like ghost.......... Gives a powdery matte look. I'm not sure if it keeps the makeup on though? Not too bad compared to my Clinque loose powder that makes me look white like ghost. I don't believe in loose powder.. but I dont have oily face so..
Moisturizers -Vichy - Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care

This product is not suitable for me. I have normal skin which is not oily and slightly dry but I get breakouts still. This product made any oil production I could possibly have impossible and that ended up clogging my pores I think? So I stopped using the product. Overhyped? Expensive too. However the pimple cream from this range I find it pretty good.
got the zeno mini at 180. a bit expensive (singapore dollars) but the zeno classic was selling at 250 which was even more. basically it does what it promises too. get rid of the pimples and bumps. but that leaves me with a red spot .. it's been a couple of days and the red spots are still there. i expect it would fade away but not anytime soon. anyway it's better than my itchy hand touching it i imagine :) downside is that it's expensive. plus the battery died after 15 times of zapping in one day.. and I had so much difficulty trying to open up the zeno mini when I first bought it to put the battery in. Will not work on whiteheads. use only for red bumps . pretty cool to be thinking about your pimples dying :) i just wish it's cheaper.. i think i just saw zeno hotspot coming out at 40usd..urgh. someone please sell this at a cheaper price in sg. oh well. i bought it already i guess...now im considering getting red and blue acne light to get rid of any evil acne!! edit: I edit my reviews of it and have decided to give it a lower rating because it leaves RELATIVELY DARK hyperpigmentation spots after zapping. Much more than if I were to pick at it....However I guess you can use it as a last resort if you have stubborn bumps that won't go away with benzoyl peroxide.
Good for cheap daily makeup. An improvement over the jar mousse which I had as this form is cleaner. However the down side is that the coverage is not as good as the mousse which was buildable. Not too dry or oily. However does not have much staying power. Goes off after a couple of hours. But it does give you a natural look :) I would use this when I'm going out for a casual day with friend and don't want to look like I'm piling on too much makeup. probably good for someone with almost flawless skin that just need minimum coverage :) However I do not see much difference between this and some other some other maybelline foundation i was using Angelift foundation. Basically you can find lots of drugstore foundation like this, light , natural , blends well but comes off after a couple of hours..
Didn't make my skin any better or worse.. I used it lightly with water as my skin is quite dry. Then again I've never had a miracle face wash . I think facial wash do not do much... I mean if you put too much soap it will dry your skin. If you don't it's kind of like water. Makes no difference...
Why this was my first makeup I used when I was 15 or so... It gives very light coverage! No breakouts. Downsides is that it's not moisturizing. Stays on your face pretty well if you don't have oily skin. Decent for the price! But it smells really bad I think :P I've graduated from this :)
