Sunscreen -Kiehls - Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++
leung 1/18/2013 7:55:00 AM
This is a superb sunscreen. It is scentless and goes on very light. Does not leave a white sheen on the face. A little drop is sufficient for the whole face and neck. Love it!
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E - Fragrance Free
leung 1/18/2013 7:46:00 AM
I was given this as a gift from a friend. I have been using it twice a day and do like the texture. It is thick enough to moisturise, but absorbs fairly quickly so I can get dressed quite fast too. It is fragrance free, however there is still a slight scent which is not unpleasant. Good value!
Tinted Moisturizer -Korres - Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer
leung 1/18/2013 7:42:00 AM
This lighweight tinted moisturiser should be renamed, oil free foundation! It provides very good coverage, however has no moisturising properties at all. I quite like this product as its coverage is so good that I don't need an additional step of a concealer. It is very good when you are in a rush!
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Powder Pink
leung 1/18/2013 7:40:00 AM
I purchased this after watching a beauty guru's video on youtube. Unfortunately, it is a hassle to apply. Not easy to blend with fingers! I had to switch to a fan brush. A little goes a long way....Too much trouble for hurried mornings.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types
leung 1/18/2013 7:36:00 AM
I had high hopes for this miracle in a jar as it came highly recommended for a humid climate. Did not like it one bit! I feel it did not moisturise my skin. Also not keen on the jar packaging which makes it somewhat unhygenic.
This is by far the best gel eyeliner I have tried. The only one that doesn't smudge on me and lasts all day. The texture is lighter and smoother than Bobbi Brown, which makes it easier to apply. It does dry fairly quickly so a fast hand in application is required. Love love love!
Lovely lemony scent, very light and refreshing. I combine it with wild fig and cassis sometimes and its quite interesting. My usualy Friday scent this one! As with all JM fragrances, not very lasting.
Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Soft Clean Moisture Rich Foaming Cleanser
leung 4/1/2012 9:59:00 PM
Received this as part of a gift pack. Was excited to try it as it seemed like a moisturising cleanser. I should have guessed not given it is a foaming cleanser. It strips oil from the face and leaves it too squeaky clean and tight. Not my kind of cleanser. I like Decleor's gel cleanser best.
I have already repurchased this 3 times. It is great value for money. Costs S$8 (during discounted periods) and lasts a good few months. It works great on my permed hair.
I love using this for any breakouts or pending breakouts. It works wonderfully on face and chest. Sometimes I get bumps on my chest from being under the sun and this works overnight and my skin is smooth the next morning. This is part of the 3 step system but I only use the Repairing lotion. Definitely recommended.
Its really quite a dull colour and definitely unsuitable for tan skin (me!). I prefer to use just 1 coat to brighten the nails. The full on colour is just too dull.
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk
leung 4/1/2012 9:44:00 PM
At best this jumbo pencil can only be a eyeshadow base. As an eyeshadow, its creases after a short while, even with Urban Decay primer. Its cheap but doesn't work for me.
Unlike majority of the reviewers here, the brush did not work wonders for me. It applies powder shadows all over the place unevenly. I think this works better with cream shadows. Not a great brush for me.
This is great colour as it is a cross between black/green/brown. Gives a more natural look compared to black. It does smudge after a few hours though therefore my lower rating...
Lip Liners -Boots - Perfect Lips Pencil in 20 Nude

This is a perfect nude! If I want a matte looking nude lip, I use a lip balm then use it over the balm. Love it!
