Mascara - CLINIQUE - Lash Power Mascara

This is my everyday mascara. I love the small brush, it is great for my short and sparse lower lashes. Does a decent job of thickening my lashes without major clumping. Even though it is not advertised as waterproof, it works like waterproof. The best part is that it does not transfer and after more than 12 hours of wearing, still no smudge. It is pricey but it is worth it. I am already going on …Read more

Am NC25-30, Chinese, this lipstick is just the perfect natural lip color for office and casual days. However, the color is not exactly unique, MAC's Twig comes close and Catrice's Ultimate color 020 (Maroon) is almost spot on. Texture wise it really couldn't be more perfect for me. Creamy enough but still stay on for hours. Will def rebuy.

This is a classic light airy floral scent, not overly sweet, but it is not exactly very unique, nor long lasting. I do like this as it is very easy to wear. I have the rollerball version as I like to take this with me travelling.

Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - 3 L'Imperatrice EDT

This is to me a very girly, sweet, flora, candyish but in an adult-way scent. I do love it mainly for day time / office time wear, more spring/summer than autumn/winter. The packaging is very simple, in a way rather understated when I think of the scent. I did not give a 5 because of one thing, due to the heavy sweetness in this, I can not wear this everyday for weeks in a row. It gets too sickly …Read more

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Black Orchid Eau de Parfum

For the longest time, I could not decide whether I liked or not Black Orchid. This perfume is STRONG, no more than 1 spray please. The first word that came into my mind (after Woaaaa!) is gourmand. It reminds me (in a nice way) of cooked coconut milk with chilis, kafir lime leaves, but at the same time a really strong bergamot in it, it is so hard to describe. I love it becos it is a VERY sexy …Read more

I love the opening, such a fresh vibrant big flora lavender bouquet, Iike the other reviewers, I just wish it would stay longer. I think the scent dries down very quickly, in 3 or less hours, the fresh lavender is gone, and you can get very powdery scent. 5 hrs later, it is almost non existent. I still like this perfume and continue to use it, but will not rebuy it.

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Duo Eye Shadow Cream

This thing creases. If I apply a thin layer, the color is too faint, but if I apply a second or third (in tiny amounts too) layer, and set with powder eyeshadow, it still creases. Some of the colors have glitter too, and not small particles, like very noticeble chunky bits. So no, even though cheap, it is a regret buy. I will give it to my friend's little girls for playing makeup.

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

It does a good job to remove makeup in general. With waterproof mascara, I did have to hold a soaked cotton pad over my eyes for over half a minute before the stuff comes off. I like that it is fragrance free and it did not leave any sticky feeling/residue. When I rinse my face with water, I can feel that my skin was a bit soapy, but it did rinse off quite quickly. Will rebuy.

Eye Makeup Remover - Lancôme - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

This does remove non waterproof makeup very fast, just one swipe and it is gone. But I do wear waterproof mascara daily, I have to hold the pad (generously soaked) against my eye for 10 to 15 seconds, and then gently rub the lashes to get the stuff off. It is a good remover, but expensive. It did not sting my eyes. But I won't be re-buying this. The Clinique Take the day off one (2 phase) …Read more
