I don't think I will buy this again because its still lasting me for quite a while. I don't use all the colours but I've experimented with most of them. This is good for beginners and those who just want to give it a try. The price is also relatively cheap. The thing I love most are the darker colours of the eye shadows and also the blushers. However, some of the colours do not stick to your eye lids that well even with eye primers. Especially the lighter colours. And be sure to flick a bit of excess off your brushes before applying because the pigments tend to drop when you're applying it. But, you cannot get any better than this for value for money when you want to experiment with colours - which I did.
Powder -Sephora - Mineral Double Compact Foundation SPF 10

I used this before I tried on MAC compact powder. It was value for money retailing at about SGD27 I think. The coverage was pretty good if you have relatively clean face without blemishes and huge pores. I have some blemishes on my face so I cannot do without concealer when I'm using this. And, this does not last so long if you do not use primer. About a few hours and you probably have to touch up to retained your look. But this is perfect for days in which you are not attending any special functions or you have really good skin. However, I hate the packaging. The foundation itself is on top and mirror is on the under size of the foundation where the sponge is at. So I don't use the mirror unless necessary and when I use it, I absolutely hated it. Can you imagine constantly flipping your case for the mirror every time you swipe to get the foundation -.- Sometimes I like just dump foundation into my bag without bringing a makeup bag especially when you carry clutch. The powder kinda drops every where inside the compact and that just sucks when you open up and your mirror inside is dirtied by the powder residue. Its only 9g if I'm not wrong. So it finishes quite fast for me too. Therefore, only get this when you want to use it for a short period of time and if you have relatively clean face.
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Light Brightening Eye Roll-On

I generally do not have very bad eye bags and circles but if I lack of sleep, its quite obvious. I tried this on for about two weeks. I felt that it did reduce my eye bags a little but not so much on the dark circles. There was a slight improvement but not much at all. I could tell my eye bags reduced because I tried to put it only on one side of my eye for 2 days and I can see a difference between the two. For price wise, I think its acceptable here in Singapore retailing at SGD20. But I went to Bangkok and got it. It was only about SGD8. So I was glad I didn't get in SG.
Primer/ Corrector -Sephora - Smoothing & Mattifying

I had this primer for a while now but have only used it for 3 times. I have a combination skin and I used it mainly to make sure my make up will stay longer or I have an event. I needed to use about one and a half pump to cover my whole face which I feel is quite a lot. I felt that my make up lasted for the whole day but my forehead was a bit shiny after a super long sweaty day (due to sweat). This was only one occasion. The other times it was relatively fine. The feeling of the primer is like oil so I wouldn't recommend it to people with oily face. I feel that it does minimize the appearance of my pores but not so much of mattifying. Overall, I would still get it again because of the price. (And I use MAC studio fix press powder)
