Prior to this, i bought Revlon Colorstay in True Beige and I think it's too dark for my medium skin with yellow undertones. Heard many times that the best color for asian skin is Colorstay in Warm Golden, but it is not available in my country, Indonesia. I tried to buy this Revlon Photoready in Golden Beige and in love with the color. It blends perfectly in my tones. However, after 8 hours, my skin gets breaking out and I got some new acnes. Oh my! I think I will only use this for an evening party which only requires my attendance for 2-3 hours, because my skin will look cakey and oily after that. I will not repurchase at all. This product is okay but not for my super oily and acne-prone skin.
Lipstick -Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Plump Perfect Lipstick

The best lipstick so far! I bought it in perfect fig and was looking for a fuchsia color, but it turned out to be darker than fuchsia with a little red hint which I love. It really suits my medium-tan skin color, and it is really gorgeous. The texture is soft and smooth, staying power is about 4 hours without eating/drinking. It has no gloss nor glitters so it's a perfect natural shade for hang out in the malls or afternoon tea time. A bit expensive but it worth the price!
I was thinking to have my MLBB lipstick because it looks like match my skin well. And yes, I picked Clinique Chubby Stick in Whole Lotta Honey and it is! The chocolate-based color will turn into somewhat plum into my pigmented lips and it is great for everyday use. It leaves my lips moisturized without looking glossy (I hate lip-glosses), but it only stays for an hour or so. I need more than that since the distance between my home to office even more that one hour :D I will not repurchase, because its price is high and not worthy. There are many better MLBB colored-lipstick outhere with the same or even lower price.
I'm not a mascara-person but I can say that this is the best mascara I've ever bought! I always have difficulties to curling and lengthen my short and flat asian lashes, but this mascara would work for me. The primer absolutely made my lashes twice longer, unfortunately they are in white color so it was a little bit hard to cover them with the black one. A little cons because it may clumps a bit if you swatch too much. But overall I really like this product. Too bad it's discontinued in my area.
Tinted Moisturizer -Oriflame - very me peach me perfect skin glow

I never expected that this product could blown me away. Yes, I lsaw it in Oriflame catalogue and it was in a first-launch discount, very cheap (around 3 USD). It has a nice peachy smell and doesn't irritate my acne-prone skin, yet my skin will look oily after 2-3 hours though I wear this under my Revlon Colorstay foundation. But for those whose skin in normal/dry condition, this tinted moisturizer will be perfect. It makes your skin glow and healthy and maybe no one will recognize that you put something on your face. And it has a sort of glitters, too. It gives you an effortless fresh-looking skin. I prefer to have it in Dark instead of Light, because it gives my skin look a little bit tanned. Must try!
