This is my go-to mascara. I've gone through tubes and tubes of this. Every single non-waterproof mascara out there smudges on me. No kidding. I've tried Cover Girl, Maybelline, Revlon, Dior, Lancome etc. None of them work, even if they claim to be "non-smudging". The Lash Power, my friend, works! I live in a place wear it's humid 365 days in a year. This mascara stays on until I remove it. And it's easy to remove, not like waterproof mascaras. If you're looking for extreme volume, then look elsewhere. This mascara does not do that. What it does is give your lashes very good definition and a glossy coat of color. And it gives me good lengths too. My lashes are very short, by the way.
Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever - HD Microperfecting Primer

I gave this 3 lippies not because it's a bad product, but more like an okay-product. If you get photographed a lot, then this is for you. It photographs beautifully, and will make you look flawless. But for normal wear, it's not the best out there. My T-zone gets oily throughout the day, and this primer does not do a good job at keeping my foundation on at those area. The MAC Prep + Prime SPF 50 does a way better job for my T-zone. For the other ares on my face, this does a good job (as a primer). It keeps my foundation looking fresh and nice for 8 hours. So, if you have normal or dry skin, I'd say give this a go. But if you have oily or combination skin, maybe try a sample first.
Let me start by saying this is not cheap. There are tons of other facial scrubs out there in the market that is way cheaper. However, they charge you a high price for a reason: quality. This scrub does what it says. It evens out my skin tone, clear my clogged nose and chin, and helps my other skin care products absorbs better. I've tried drug store products to department store scrubs, and none of them is as good as this. All the other scrubs that I've tried are either too drying or has scrubbing bits that are too harsh for my skin. The Daily Microfoliant is very gentle on your skin (no crazy hard srubby bits). I know it says "daily", but please don't use it every day. I use it twice a week, followed by a hydrating mask of another brand. My skin is dehydrated and sensitive (not overly though), and this works well for me. If your skin is super dry or easily irritated, I'd recommend only once a week usage. It can be a teeny bit drying, if you have dry skin to start with. The product gets activated by water. So, please follow the instructions that comes on the bottle. Or else, you'd just waste precious products.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #165 Contouring Brush [DISCONTINUED]

I absolutely LOVE this brush. At first, the price seems a bit too steep. But after trying for the first time, I know I've made the right choice. It's super soft but still dense enough to pick up just the right amount of powder. I use this to apply MSF and/or blushes. Having a relatively smaller face, using the 187 or 129 to apply blushes will mean getting a whole lot of my cheek area covered in blush, which doesn't really work that well for me. (which is why I usually skip the blush) But, this baby works perfectly. It's tapered and (relatively) smaller, which means you can control where exactly the powder will go. It gives me a soft and natural application and makes blending a dream. I've yet to try for contouring. Will definitely try it out tomorrow.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide on eyeliner in 1999
sl_yeap 2/2/2009 3:59:00 AM
This is a plum-burgudy color with a hint of shimmer to it. It's not as pigmented as the other UD 24/7 liner. But it applies smoothly and stays on all day. The reason I would not buy this again is that it doesn't show up that much on me (I'm a NC25). Maybe it'll work better on lighter skintones (NC20 or lighter).
Super pigmented. Very bright, intense pop-blue. Not the kind that you'll wear every other day. But it gives plain old brown eyelook a certain kind of pop to it (if you know what I mean). Just like all UD 24/7 liners, this is creamy, easy to apply and stays on forever.

This is my first UD liner, and I never looked back. Been collecting the others after this. very pigmented. Super easy to apply. You can even wear it by itself when you're in a hurry. Very true to its color. What you see on the pencil is what you get. Will definitely buy again when I'm done with my current one. =)
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Stash
sl_yeap 2/2/2009 3:48:00 AM
Everyone NEED this liner. It's the most versatile liner ever (other than black). It's a golden olive color with slight shimmers in it. It is PRETTY. I can't rave enough about this. It's my favorite liner of all. It's creamy, easy to apply. Stays forever. You can wear it by itself, pair it with any eyelook on the lower lashline. This is a must have. ps. I'll give it 10 lippies if I can. =P
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide on eye pencil in Yeyo
sl_yeap 2/2/2009 3:44:00 AM
This is a very glittery white liner. In fact, I find it too chunky sometimes. It's a true white with sliver glitters. I don't use it that much. I love the stay power and the bright white. But the chunky glitters are putting me off.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet
sl_yeap 2/2/2009 3:41:00 AM
I love love love this liner (as I'm a sucker for greens). Anyone who loves green, you'll definitely love this. It' not too bright, and not too deep. It's like somewhere in between. Line your lower lashline with Covet when you're doing a purple eyelook. It made my brown eyes pop (the purple and green combo). Very easy to apply. Does not tug on the skin at all. Very pretty.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Lucky
sl_yeap 2/2/2009 3:17:00 AM
This a shiny copper, similar to the color of a new penny. Very unique color IMO. I don't wear it a lot, cause it's not really my type of color. But don't get me wrong. It's super creamy, easy to apply, stays on forever. Maybe it's just not that great with my brown eyes. =) Overall, I'll still recommend this to everyone. Get the VIP travel set to try this color in a smaller size. Sometimes it's great to have alternatives in your stash. =)

This is my HG liner. Very creamy and easy to apply. Smudge-able. Once it sets, it stays on forever. After it sets, it's water and smudge proof. Everyone needs this in their makeup stash! =P
