I love love love this bush! Despite the fact that this blush has the tiniest bit of fallout, it's pigmented, very bendable. It's not a peach-coloured blush at at, not even a peachy pink. It's just a nice light pink. I'm not sure whether this lies towards the cool or warm side, but I would say in between. Due to its colour, I would say it suits light-medium skin tones better. I personally like to wear blush for a healthy, natural hint of colour and this blush definitely does the job! I just use my cheap blush brush from ecotools and tap the brush vertically onto the blush and sweep it across my cheeks. I like to blend this out a lot to make it look very natural. I've just recently hit pan on this. If you don't have a brush, I guess you could use you fingers and lightly apply to your cheeks. This blush is super, velvety smooth. I cannot make a final judgment on this product's packaging and staying power just yet. I think the packaging varies on which one you get, I think I got a flimsy one as whenever I close the blush, I always feel kinda insecure, but mine has never broke. But I also have friends who got super sturdy packaging. I guess you'll just have to be careful not to drop it as I heard some people said that their's broke. About the staying power, im not too sure since I blend it out so much and there's usually nothing left on my cheeks at the end of the day. The price is very very cheap and it's definitely worth it for a few dollars. I just love NYX's blushes in general. Since they have a wide colour selection, you can find your ideal colour for your skin tone! Overall, this is an AMAZING BLUSH. :)
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Volume Waterproof

I have it in blackest black. This is a very volumising mascara and a little lengthening. I honestly don't know what you refer to as 'long and full lashes' but I guess mine are decent. It's a cheap mascara. And holds the curl my QVS lash curler gives very well. Even though this is not the 24hr version,this definitely lasts all the long. My lashes are significantly much more visible but at the same time, it doesn't give my lashes that fake look which I think the length version gives. I had to give this product only 4 lippies due to the fact that it's waterproof to the extent that it's so difficult to remove! I cannot remove this with my normal makeup remover or cleanser. I can only wait for it to fade away the next day which is very annoying. Overall, I love the look this mascara but only buy this when you have an extremely good makeup remover!
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Mentholatum ACNES UV Tinted Milk SPF 50

This is my HG product. Yes, yes, a lot of people says that this product has 0 coverage. But sometimes i use this as a skin brightener and only that to school. In Singapore, we are not allowed to wear makeup to school, but when i wear this, it brightens up my skin, and cancels the darkness/dullness especially on my mouth area, lids. Besides, this product having almost no coverage let me know that I'm allowing my skin to breathe which is good. I love that this has SPF50 in it and dries matte unlike other sunscreen that leaves an oily shine on my face. To me, the only downside to this product is that its lack of product. It comes in a tiny bottle which is good for travelling. The packaging is okay, not too fancy, which I don't really mind, but the simplicity of the design, I guess, is more Eco-friendly. I also like to put this under my makeup, as a matte sunscreen/primer since it has a little colour. I got this at SaSa, my local beauty supply store at SGD9.90' (I think) around SGD 10. It's available online at Sasa.com as well. Overall,it hasn't break me out, I guess it depends, and it's a great product. :)
