Crème -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation
soulsucker 12/10/2012 3:55:00 AM
I've tried all brands of foundation, and BB has the best color match and very very natural. If you're looking for foundation that is lightweight and buildable, this is for you. It is not long wearing for a club nite out. It is more for natural beauty girls, who just wear blushers and lipstick or simple eye makeup but not painting their whole face! It's best to use a brush for smooth & heavy coverage otherwise sponge or finger for medium. i use the pressed powder in warm natural. wat a perfect combination. on budget times, i 'll switch to MAC pressed powder.that's Y i took 1 lippie off. another lippie off, its not long lasting.
After Chanel discontinued their TeintControle powder no 6, i been searching for my HG powder. tried MAC C40, just abit dark...BB too light, like no coverage.Clinique too ashy.I've got medium with golden yellow complexion which is hard to match. so, when a friend recomm me this, i was like cool. i bght Tahoe shade. It matches perfectly in the sunlight but under dim yellow light, i looked dark. this powder is so light, i barely feel anything...lighter than a pressed powder? so i wonder whether is it worth it? This doesnt control oil at all and doesnt last. why are other reviewers said its lasting??

Finally i found a skincare to continue until its discontinued. the moisturizer is so light and little goes a long way. it doesnt clog pores at all. i use microdelivery exfoliating wash then followed by this. it's so simple & keep my skin great...this moisturizer is so nourishing. but i took off 1 lippie... it's so stinky! the smell is like burn rubber!

It's exp in singapore...$12.90 each, Shampoo & cond..My colored hair is so dry & hard after rinsing, I've got to quicly apply e conditioner which is very mild, not moisurising enough. Its suitable for really normal hair, not thick, wavy & dry like mine!

Moisturizers -Olay - White Radiance UV Natural Lightening Lotion

This moisturiser is damn good. It really lightens my dark spots in 2 weeks. Cannot be used during the day coz it will leave a white cast/film on yr face like a ghost...Now my face is brighter.Its dirt cheap, so no harm trying!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
soulsucker 4/29/2008 12:53:00 AM
This moisturiser is quite similar to DDMG, in texture & consistency.Packaged in a jar instead of pump bottle. It has no fragrance & feels refreshing Bcoz of Aloe vera. Very light, similar to Biotherm Aquasource, but Biotherm has those spring water stuff thingy.... Nothing great, just normal hydration, full of silicone & pricewise...its too costly.
Cleansers -Kiehls - Foaming Non-Detergent Washable Cleanser
soulsucker 2/27/2008 1:41:00 AM
i tried this cleanser from a 2ml sample.. The consistency is a little bit runny. Quite foamy when lather but cleans dirt & light makeup well. I have oily skin & found this non-drying. Not sure if used long term...Pricey, last a long time but non travel friendly.
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Glycerin & Oat Facial Lather
soulsucker 2/13/2008 3:45:00 AM
This is quite a good cleanser...i find it suitable for combination to oily skin although its for normal to dry. clean dirt & make up off with 1 single wash only! Face is slighty tight aft washing. Dry skin Beware... EDIT: Suddenly, i Hv no idea why i do not like this product.When i got back to this...after washing, my face felt so tight tat my face bone is Hurtful! And anyway, its discontinued in Spore..
I alternate this moisturiser with cleanance K cream..when i'm pimple-free.This moisturiser is so light & has nice fragrant. It has Clinique DDML consistency, but slightly lighter. I hv oily skin so i only use it at night. Very nourishing.Its nice if u wanna take a break from AHA/BHA cream...But its costly thou....since it worked ...will repurchase again.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Select Sheer Pressed Powder
soulsucker 9/21/2007 12:14:00 AM
This is e best pressed powder! Very finely milled.Even out skintone, control oil but super oily skin shld use Blot pressed powder instead..I dun wear liquid foundie so I use this alone.1 thing...it oxidise so buy at least 1 or 2 shade lighter if u're fair or medium tone...can last up to 5 mths w everday use..$38 in spore.HG product!
This is my HG coral peachy lipstick! Very very suitable color for my tan skin...goes well with MAC blusher - peachy. suitable for day & nite.i took 1 lippie off coz of the too creany texture.. Update: product discontinued! my search goes on.....
Finally i've found my HG moisturiser for combination acneprone skin. Thou lots of silicone to keep face matte but oily acne skins need BHA /Salylic acid in a moisturiser. And this is gentle non drying.i used it only at nite.Simple skincare...travel easy.A little bit pricey 4 the amt.

soulsucker 8/31/2007 3:05:00 AM
Being a beauty junkie,I've tried all scrubs from low end to high end brands.This scrub is the best so far.Cheap, effective with saliclyic acid & nice packg. Slightly harsh for dry skin coz e grains are bigger.but dryskin could get e gentle one...
