Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Rosewine

I just love this classic colour. Perfect for daily office or casual wear. My countless purchase from Revlon's lip color range. I won't stop buying them because it's really really worth every cents! Colours are pigmented, and best part, it's sold in drugstores, so convenient, don't need to head to town or big shopping malls to purchase them. <3
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous in Kiss Me Coral

The color brightens my complexion. Love this product. I usually apply only a thin layer, more like a tint for my lips. I live Revlon lipsticks, i plan to have a collection of both Matte and Super Lustrous ones!!
I received lotsa of compliment when i wore this to a wedding ceremony! They said, "WOW your lips are SO RED!" It just brightens my whole face. The shade is just right for Asian women. Colour totally stays even after food and drinks. No feathering or smudging. I'll usually put first layer over Revlon's lipliner, pat using tissue and apply another thin layer. Worth the money, i guess works better than other pricey brands :) LOVE THIS!!

A little goes a long way! I've been looking for the longest time for a hair product to save my frizzy curly hair! This is it!! Just one or two drops from the bottle is sufficient for my long hair to turn soft and tame. I usually apply them from the ends and sweep the remaining near the roots of my hair. Amazing product, used it on towel-dried hair and also on out-of-bed hair. Love that it's not overly oily (like olive oil for hair) and it smells fantastic! I'm surprised that it's inexpensive for such good quality. My hair stays shiny and lively, even after exposed to sun as i ride to work daily. WORTH THE BUY!!
Worst formulas. It puts there waterproof formula, but it took the longest time to dry up, and it smudges. HATE THE SMELL! It totally irritate my eyes. Packaging is bad, first ever tube i bought came with a detached wand! I had to go back to the shop for an exchange. I only used it once, and i ditched it forever. But i'm sure i love other body/makeup products from TBS. Mascaras are not their thing i guess. Boo!
Lip Treatments -Palmers - Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter
hanawaz 12/14/2012 12:25:00 AM
My lips tend to be dry and pale, makes me look sick when actually it's just dry lips. Been looking around for a lip balm that would aid me. Found this in Robinson's Singapore and was elated knowing that cocoa butter works incredibly on skin, i've decided to try them on my lips. Love the texture, instant revitalise my lips to it's natural colour. Leaves a sheen of gloss, my lips feels soft and it doesn't have any overpowering smell that gave some aftertaste on my tongue, unlike some brands. Would definitely purchase this again!
It's hard to find tinted lip balm. I trust NIVEA products, test many of their products skin and body. Good reddish tint for my semi dark lips. Doesn't make my face looked flush without applying lipstick. Wore them daily to moisturize and protect my lips. However the cherry scent is a big NO NO. It somehow smells like SOUR PLUMS to me!!!
My first liquid foundation. I find it much a hassle, i've stopped using it, and passed it to my sister to use it instead. Disliked the smell of the product, packaging is glass bottle, if only it has a pump with it. Good coverage, but hard to match colour to my Asian skin.
Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. - Mineral Infused Face Primer

I don't know whether i liked this product or not, though i did finish the whole bottle, left a bit in the container that couldn't be pumped out. First thing i look out for when buying makeup products, is their scent. This primer have quite a bit of it, not my type. It glides well onto my skin upon application. My skin still oils up per normal at the end of the day. The only thing i use primer is knowing that there's a barrier between your skin and makeup. No breakouts or whatsoever.
TRIBAL ODYSSEY was quite a mess. It's too chalky, and the brush(as usual) that goes with it was prickly. No matter how light i pick up the product from the pan, i have to tap it a couple of times before apply on my face. There's too much glitter, for a bronzer itself, and for my asian skin, the color didn't contrast much, all i get is a golden bright look. I only used it less than 5 times, and chuck it at the back of my makeup drawer.
Brows -NYX - Eyebrow Cake Powder - ECP02 Dark Brown/Brown
hanawaz 8/21/2012 11:21:00 PM
One of the successful product of NYX. I've received many praises on how "perfect" my brows are and even recommend it to friends and family. It's easy to fill in, however the brush is a no-go. I use it with a pricey angled brush to achieve the desired texture for my brow. The case broke twice, which was inconvenient, it messed up my makeup bag, so i had to tie them up after every use, much of a hassle. Yes i will buy it again, but i've stopped using them and went back to eyebrow retractable pencils as they are more on-the-go type.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
hanawaz 8/21/2012 11:14:00 PM
I have oily lids and sensitive eyes. Yes, it works wonders, a little goes a long way, my eyeshadow doesn't crease, and the colours stands out more with these as a base/primer. No, it doesn't work for my sensitive eyes. I used to apply it almost to my lash line(top and bottom), thinking that it can help my liner to last. Once i teared due to my dry contact lens, i can feel the primer "seep" into my eyes and it burns!! It occurred a couple of occasions, with and without contact lens. Now i apply it to my crease till my brows.
I'm so happy i found these! I have sensitive eyes and i've tried many kind of cleanser/wipes to wipe of my waterproof mascara, and these are THE BEST! No stinging feel, no breakouts, get everything off from my face, plus it's really moisturising. Ever since i use this wipes, i have no phobia of wiping near my eyes, it's gentle yet effective!!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

Just wanted to try out of curiousity, seeing alot of local makeup guru using them. It worked fairly on me. Smudged a bit to my undereyes. Didn't lengthen that much. Worth trying a tube, not more :)
I bought it to use on an occasion. Wwanted to coated my lash and create a bolder fuller lash. Love how it works. I guess my sisters love it too now that they are using them!!
