This is my everyday powder and I'm not planning to change it. I don't wear much of foundation. Just a BB cream and then this amazing powder on. The reason I first bought this because it was translucent. And most brands claim to have translucent, but they are always darker than my very fair skin. The Balm solved my problem with this powder. I'm already on my third pack …Read more

I have these in Glamour and Retrofuturist. They are such nice colours, both complementing my skin. I always have been a sucker for nice reds. But both colours seem to bleed out very badly, which I am not fond of. I don't carry a lipliner on me everyday, so it's kind of a pain to re-apply them, being afraid of the feathering. I admit I love the tube. It's so cute overall. Taste of …Read more

This is a wonderful trio of blushes! Being a big fan of blush, I truly love this. The price is quite nice for three different shades. There is one thing I should warn you about. Each colour is highly pigmented, so you need to be extra careful not to dab your brush with too much pressure or the chances of your cheeks turning into a clown are high! haha The smallest amount of the blush will be …Read more

Lip Gloss - benefit Cosmetics - Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

I have Coralista in small size which came with my Tropicoral set. The taste is okay, while I am not a fan of fruit flavours in lip products, being over-sensitive to scents/tastes in general. The colour is a bit tricky. It gives a light coral look to your lips first applied, which is sweet. But that quickly fades in minutes to completely clear, along with the rest of the gloss. I like the feel of …Read more

Best primer ever!

There really isn't much to say about this. It does what it promises! All the eye primers I tried were big disappointments. When I got my hands on a sample size of Too Faced Anti-Crease, I didn't have high hopes. But it turned out to be the best thing I ever tried! Creasing shadows no more! <3

I can't stand the taste! It leaves the most horrible taste in my mouth, even when the colour fades off in short time (or when I wipe it away), I can still taste it. Gross... ><

Other than the horrible taste, the liquid lipstick tends to move around my lip line and bleed away, forming a bad look. It's super sticky and never settles down, so you will need to check on a …

Cleansers - LUSH - Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Facial Cleanser

Feb/19/2013

I like this product. It smells so nice with lavender and leaves a fresh feeling on my skin. Applying is a bit messy at first, but I got used to it. Though, I noticed it doesn't deeply cleanses my skin. I still had some BB cream on my face after I rinsed. I guess some make up removal is needed before using this cleanser.

The short expire date is a bit stressing, too. I wonder if I …
