Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

This is by far my favorite foundation. I wear shade #127 and its my 3rd bottle. I love the way it gives my face a flawless look with an oh-so slight glow. Looks very natural, photographs well and is comfortable on my skin. I love it so much, I requested my Make Up Artist to use this for all my Wedding functions ( I'm Indian and our wedding events usually last a week). This doesn't cake and doesn't oxidize much. This is HG product for me. Only wish it was a little more affordable. LAAAve it! Would I buy it again? DEFINITELY
This is by far my favorite blue Nail polish of all time! I love, love, love this dark greyish Blue color. It's a very unique blue color in my humble opinion and I simply adore the way it looks against my NC30 coloring - although I think it would suit ALL skintones! It's completely opaque in two coats and it's not streaky. Love!!
Really nice product. Its moisturizing and doesn't cake and is quick long-lasting. This is soon going to overtake my favorite Cle De Peau concealer. LOVE THIS!

I had originally bought this to apply my bronzer, but I think its a little thick for that. However, I really really LOVE this for Foundation application (Mineral or Liquid). It's really great, blends the foundation really well and makes application very quick and simple. I just wish it was a little softer. Definitely check this one out.
Eye Shadow -Yves Saint Laurent - Slate Green eyeshadow

Honestly, I was so excited to get this eyeshadow. But the $45 SGD for a single shadow held me back, until finally I caved and bought it for the unique colour. I really regret it. For the price and brand, I expected this to be a really great product. The colour, yes is very unique, but the texture is sub-par. It is quite dry and consequently quite difficult to blend. I am very disappointed. This is my first eyeshadow from YSL and honestly I sincerely doubt I will be buying anymore. UGH!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this! This is the perfect ORANGEY-RED lipstick- which leans alot more warmer. I love it so much. I have used this many times and people always ask what I am wearing. I love this, its long-lasting and non-drying. For reference I am NC30 with yellow undertones.
"Where have you been, oh perfect vampy red lipstick that doesn't make me look goth? I love you, you complete......my look. You look perfect with just a simple winged eyeliner". Lol..okay so maybe I have a flair for the dramatics. =) But seriously check this out, beautiful dark red lipstick that stains the lips very nicely and is just perfect. NC30. Will definately re-purchase.
This is a bright blue-based fuchsia pink with orangey/coral undertones. When I first apply it, I admit I am a little nervous about the colour but within sometime the colour seems to be "absorbed" by my lips and it looks really nice. This is very long wearing, it stains the lips but thankfully in an even manner ( hate the lipsticks that camp out on my fine lines and outer lip). And best of all, it is not drying!! Wore it for the first time today and received so many compliments. Love. Check it out! Highly Recommend. oFor reference I'm an NC30 with yellow undertones.
I am afraid - I am the odd one out here. It's not a "bad" mascara but its not something I would purchase again. Yes it is very natural and lengthens a little ( no volumizing properties). I definitely cannot use it alone and if I have to use two different lash products to get my desired effect - then I would rather use my Kate mascara base (at least that lengthens and volumizes well). Thumbs down for me.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture - Vernis A levres #8

I thought I would finally try a "liquid lipstick" out. I happened to walk past the newly re-launched YSL beauty and skincare counter in Singapore and decided to buy 2 lipsticks and this baby is one of them. It is a beautiful orange- coral color which is comfortable to wear and is very long-lasting. It is great because it leaves a stain ( something like what you would get after eating an orange Popsicle) and its perfect for work. It is a sheer formula but with definite color payoff. Definitely would re-purchase this. Anyone looking for a very wearable, work friendly orange lippie - check this one out.
Okay so I have a very bad habit of biting my lips when they are dry...ofcourse further aggravating the situation (shame on me) . Anyways a friend of mine told me to try this and I am so glad I did. I prefer this to the Sugar brand lip balms ( which are more expensive and melt like crazy--- maybe the weather here?). I have been using this as a night treatment and honestly my lips haven't looked better. It moisturizers well and my fine lines are less visible. Effective + decently priced = repurchase . =)
Brows -Make Up For Ever - Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector

Okay, so after reading the great reviews here, I went out and bought this. It was SGD $ 39 which isn't too bad (considering all cosmetics are expensive here). And I must say, I absolutely love it! It's very pigmented and very long lasting. And a teeny tiny amount goes a long way. I put a small dot on my hand and use my eyebrow brush to put it on, after that I just brush through the brows using a clean mascara wand to spread the product out evenly. It holds up really well against the super hot & humid weather in Singapore. Love ! Definitely a repurchase for me. -- do be careful when picking the color, I have dark eyes and dark hair and I went for the #20 - light brown color and I am glad because after setting - the color seems to darken a bit ( maybe that's just me). This seems more natural than the grey or the dark brown - which made me just look like I have two caterpillars on my face! Anyways, point is check it out but try the color on and walk around the store for a bit before deciding.
So this is the first product I've tried from the Korean brand Vidi Vicci. I am always on the hunt for a blacker, long lasting gel eyeliner. So when I came across this I was excited after I swatched it, but when I found out the price was the same as a bobbi brown eyeliner I was a bit hesitant (as I had never really heard about this brand before). I bought it anyways and I am glad I did. This is a true true black eyeliner. I rate this higher and far above bobbi brown, mac, shu uemura and Mac fluid line. This is a good product and i recommend you check this out. And if you live in Singapore then you can find this at True Colors in Ngee Ann City. Update: I have gone back to my original makeup forever gel liner which I pat with black shadow and it doesn't seem to smudge as fast. This would be my second go to gel liner
Eye Makeup Remover -Biore - Hydra Clear Makeup Remover

This is Phenomenal!! OMG. Before this, I was using the Fancyl Cleaning Oil then MAC Cleansing Oil then Boscia Cleansing Oil (which was my favorite for a while). But this product is SOOOOO GOOOD. there is nothing that gets left behind. I simply pour a small amount on my hands and gently rub over my eyes - then wash with water. And it removes my waterproof and long-wearing liner sooo effectively. Its amazing. Its very affordable and does a phenomenal job. The best cleansing oil I've come across.For the face I use the Biore Makeup Wipes (OMG- very good too) and then follow up with my Cleaner and rest of skincare routine. Gotta say extremely impressed with these two Biore products. (OHH but please be careful and not get any of the cleansing oil into your eyes - cause it STINGS).

I bought this from the States on vacation. And oh how i wish it was sold in Singapore! Its wonderful. Doesn't clump. Very black and doesn't smear/smudge. And as far as "falsies'' look is concerned ---I was wearing this the other day and my friend asked me if i had 'false lashes' on?? - so yess it does live up to its claim!
