Fragrances - CLINIQUE - Simply [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/18/2005

Like everyone has said, there is no other perfume that smells like this. I wore it and liked it. However I always find something missing from it. Is that because of the simple blend of notes? As the name suggests, it isn't a sophisticated scent. One day I went into the computer lab of the univerity and found someone else was wearing it (I wans't wearing it at the time, otherwise it …Read more

Lip Treatments - The Body Shop - Born Lippy Lip Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/17/2005

For the past 3 years, I bought 4 of these balms. One in Watermelon as a gift for my friend (she liked it) and 3 for myself. It took me more than a year to use up my first one (in Mandarin, my fav. flavor). The colour of the strawberry one, which I am currently using, is most flattering to me. Unfortunately the raspberry one, which I bought about a year ago, was not my colour, a bit too blueish …Read more

Foundations - Bourjois - Le Nu Vous Va Si Bien

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2005

After reading the reviews below, I was a bit shocked. Come on, Le Nu Vous Va Si Bien (the liquid one) is not that bad! Some gals probably don't have the right skin type to use it, e.g. oily skin. You'd probably avoid it. I have normal skin and I use a moisturiser underneath otherwise it can even be a little be dry for me. I think Le Nu is probably one of the best foundation I have used …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Shadow Duo- Twillight Mauve/Brandied Plum

I really hate this Clinique eyeshadow. It's soooooooo dry. I prefer powder eyeshadow with a bit of shimmer and a creamy texture. I bought Twilight Mauve/Brandied Plum. Those shades were completely matte and looked dull on me. And the drawer-like package looked so weired and ugly. Really regret buying it!

Masks - Sisley-Paris - Masque Givre - Facial Mask with Linden Blossom

5.0

Jun/21/2005

This is a wonderful deep cleansing mask. It doesn't make my skin tight and uncomfortable after being rinsed off; instead, my skin feels soothed and calmed. It seems to have the ability to suck impurities out of pores, unlike many other masks which claim to do so but fail, cos my skin looks clear with smaller pores after using it everytime. Not sure if it will really tighten my pores in the …Read more

Powders - L'Oreal Paris - Visible Lift Line Minimizing Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2005

WARNING: Don't buy this if you are looking for something you can put on lines. I bought this in Medium and have been using for a few months. It doesn't have the ability to minimize lines as it claims. I like it just because it is translucent (I hate heavy and thick powders), non-drying and doing a good job in diminishing the shine of my foundation. It is non-comedogenic and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CLARINS - Body Shaping Cream

5.0

Jun/15/2005

I am on my second jar of this. Yes, it is pricy but it is the only slimming product I have tried that works. I would rather buy this than spending my money on cheaper but useless products. I use it in the evening after shower on my belly and waist (these are the areas where fat easily accumulates). I remember seeing visible results after just a few weeks of use. I am currently using it to keep …Read more

Lipstick - ORIGINS - Creamy Lip Color

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2005

The Origins website describes this lipstick as "Creamy, vegetable-based colors. Chock-full of soothing substances to soften lips and prevent dryness. Won't feather, bleed or wander." Yes, that's true. It is long-wearing and doesn't bleed like some glossy lipsticks to (becasue it is creamy instead of glossy). It doesn't dry out my lips. I have this lipstick in …Read more

Moisturizers - Neutrogena - Visibly Firm Night Cream with Copper ] [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/13/2005

It is a great inexpensive night cream for my normal skin in winter. After a few weeks of use, I really found my skin was firmer. I like the fact that it is fragrance-free (that's why I use so many Neutrogena products, scents suck), moisturising enough and not causing pimples. I am a heavy user and going to finish a jar about 3 months after I began using it (lol). As the weather is going to …Read more

Lipstick - Bloom Cosmetics - Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/13/2005

I was looking for something to replace L'Oreal Shine Delice in Sugar 'N Spice, so I bought Bloom lipstick in Captivate. It is actually quite purple, a cool shade with slight silvery shimmer. It is sheer but the colour intensity is buildable. I still think the L'Oreal shade is more sutitable for my warmtone MMM complexion, however it dried my lips out. I like the Bloom one anyway …Read more
