Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Sunlight Color Corrector

May/09/2018

This was an impulse buy from iHerb. Didn't expect much from it but was pleasantly surprised.

First off, for some context, I'm Chinese with dehydrated oily skin living in the tropics and have some redness around the tip of my nose and the chin area under my lower lip. This yellow powder is a colour-corrector, not a concealer, and it does an amazing job correcting the reddened …

Primer/ Corrector - Alima Pure - Balancing Primer Powder

4.0

May/29/2016

I bought this on a whim. Watched one of those YouTube makeup videos in which the girl said powder primer are best used with powder foundation, not liquid foundation. Made sense. Browsed Sephora website later and saw that they carry Alima Pure products and got this primer in light shade. It's SGD42, which isn't cheap and risky for a spur-on-the-moment purchase.

I use it under …

May/29/2016

For reference's sake, I'm a Chinese girl in her mid-thirties with combination skin, living in a tropical country and spent a lot of time in the office. In short, I alternate between hot and humid outdoors and cold and dry office. For my kind of environment, climate and skin type, I find mineral powder foundation works best for me. After application, the powder gradually blend into my …Read more

BB Cream - Tarte Cosmetics - BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

This is a surprise. I wasn't expecting this to work but it did.

I saw the mini version in Sephora and decided to buy to try it out. I bought the light shade which was the closest to my skin tone.

The first time I use it, I applied it with my fingers. Worked but I found the layer too thick. Second time I tried, I applied it with my Beautyblender. Surprisingly, it …

Loose Powders - Everyday Minerals - Finishing Dust

Mar/05/2016

I like EM's range of finishing powders. First, it tends to do what it suppose to do and second, I can even use it as a powder primer. The ingredients in their finishing powders is a short concise list, which is very reassuring, and like all EM products, it isn't expensive.

The Sunlight Finishing Dust and the Finishing Dust are the two I've tried. So far, I prefer the SFD …

Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener

2.0

Mar/04/2016

I bought this in 2015.

This failed to do what it is supposed to do. First off, the tip broke off easily. Secondly, it didn't blend well, so it's impossible to get a subtle brightening effect. Thirdly, it burned, but considering that I'm a novice at eyeliner, it's probably my fault.

Nevertheless, this is one product that is highly disappointing. I …

Eye Primer - Tarte Cosmetics - Clean Slate 360 Creaseless 12-Hour Smoothing Eye Primer [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2016

I bought this together with the Tarte's Clean Slate 12hr Poreless Primer (which I just reviewed).

Much like that primer, this works for me too. I spot-apply it on my eyelids and under my eyes when I forget to prime that area too.

My mineral powder foundation and concealer hadn't creased since I started using this primer, so I'm pretty chuffed about this …

Primer/ Corrector - Tarte Cosmetics - Clean Slate Poreless 12 hr Perfecting Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2016

I've always been curious about Tarte products ever since Sephora brought it into my country. But it took me a long time to decide about trying out their primers because one, it's not cheap and two, for a cosmetic brand that is purportedly natural, quite a lot of the ingredients used in their primers aren't. It even has dimethicone in it! Still, I decided to give it a …Read more

Blush - rms beauty - Lip2Cheek - Modest

Jan/05/2016

Bought my first rms beauty product after reading so much about it. I bought it on Valentine's Day 2015 as I needed to replace my Laura Mercier lipstick in nude color sinceI find it too drying and therefore hardly ever use it, and tracked down the shop which carries rms beauty products (a shop selling Eco/organic products). They have the lip shine range and the lip2cheek range. The lip shine …Read more
