Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Genuine Treasure (Posh Paradise)

Holy GLITTER fallout!!! As I was applying it I was totally in love with the colour. I remember making a mental note that I should get a backup while it's still available in stores as it is 'limited edition'. Anyway, about 3 hours later all the glitter has transferred to my under-eye area. Believe me..not a pretty sight. I'm so dissapointed in this paint pot. If you figure out a way to make it work for you please let me know.
This is a beautiful and very feminine colour. I wear this when I want to wear my coral colored in-your face lipstick. I love all the nuance blushes. My other favourite from this line is nude nuance. The quality is amazing.
I don't like the way this colour looks with my light green eyes. I wish MAC would come up with more colours. I love the paint pot formula though because the lasting power is amazing. It's up for swap on my list if you are interested.

I love this colour. I'm glad that Benefit offers darker colours in this product line unlike other brands (Shiseido's cream eyeshadows are extremely sheer). It lasts at least 8 hours in this hot humid Singapore weather. I wish though that the product could not dry out so quickly. I store it upside down/which is supposed to help but it still is drying out sooo quickly!! My recommendation for Benefit is to either change the formula or charge half price for half size packaging.
I don't like this colour on me at all. It accentuates your teeth ..so if your teeth are not pearly white then I suggest you rethink putting on this colour. My teeth I would say are normal/above average but this lipstick makes me very self conscious. Sorry for the bad review cause I really wanted to like this colour. Cyndi wins it for me.
I love this lipstick and will very likely hit bottom if I wasn't trying to save it. I find that the colour is very wearable and flattering day or night and with most outfits. I wish it would last longer though.
I have been using this for about 3 weeks now and I really like the results. I much prefer this formula than the shiny one which made my face itch. I like to spray fix + after application to make it set and look less cakey. I don't use the primer nor the veil. I will continue to use this until I find something better.
This is an amazing mascara. I have tried many mascaras from Lancome, Dior, MAC, Estee Lauder, L'oreal and BeneFit and I must say that this one meets all my expectations and much more. I'm on probably 10th tube now and can't imagine using anything else. Unfortunately Covergirl is not sold in Singapore so I have to get my supply on Ebay.
I hated this product. I tried it twice and then gave it away. I love the original lash blast though. Don't waste your money on this.

I love love love this product! Lately I find myself using this colour (....and I own/or owned in the past most of them) almost everyday to create a neutral eye so I can play up my lips as I'm going through a bright lipstick phase. I truly believe that I will actually hit the pan with this and that doesn't usually happen to me cause I own just way to much makeup to use in three lifetimes if you know what I mean. I will repurchase again.
Crazy glitter hot pink lipstick for 12 year olds to play... I can't imagine stepping outside with this on.

I'm shocked at the bad reviews for this mascara. Just bought this yesterday on a whim at Watson's (Singapore) and paid $19 (about $14). I love what it does to my lashes. They are soo fanned out and full. I agree that the brush is unconventional but I love how it's easier to work with it. Also, the drier formula allows to create more volume. I gotta get my hands on more of these suckers. I see that they're selling on ebay for about $3!! Yeeey:) Btw. I rated it low for price because Revlon is expensive in Singapore as opposed to the US. Drugstore makeup shouldn't cost this much!

This is one of those blushes that you'll never get sick of using. It gives me nice subtle cheekbones.
I got this in the realness of concealness kit which I love ..except for this so called lip plumper. I think it's disgusting on the lips. I have tried it as an eyeshadow base the other day and it worked pretty good actually. It's not intended to be used on the eyelids but that's how I will use it up when i'm "on the go". Would never buy the full-sized product of this stuff ..but the realness of concealness kit i probably will.
I am surprised by the bad reviews for this blush in #2 (Strawberry colour) because I love it. It gives me beautiful rosy cheeks with just the right amount of shimmer. It applies cold and has an incredible floral and sweet smell. It's very easy to apply and blend. I do have to re-apply about every 3 hours which I don't mind because the whole experience is easy and fun (did I mention that I loooooooooooove the scent?:)) I get lots of compliments when wearing it. I would totally repurchase this if it wasn't a limited edition item. I also own the darker shade in #1 (Chocolate colour). I am not very crazy about this colour but have been using it more often now that I have a tan. I can totally imagine this shade working fabulously on ladies with darker skin. By the way, both have the same scent.
