Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Merino Cool

3.0

This is a really beautiful shade of cool brown/taupe and works well for fall or winter. It’s a bolder neutral that works for the office but also for more dressy occasions. It has a thin brush that’s easy to use and the colour is opaque in two coats. As much as I love the colour, it chips within a couple of days and doesn’t have great longevity. I find this to be the case with many Essie polishes …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Nail Lacquer - Angora Cardi

It’s a beautiful colour, but chips really quickly. I needed three coats to get a really even coverage. I tried it with my usual base and top coats that work well with other polishes. This one didn’t stand the test of time.

Moisturizers - Kiehl's - Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream

I bought this product because I'm currently living in a country where I don't have access to a lot of good skin care products, especially for any kind of a decent price. So I was visiting Bangkok for a weekend and decided to buy this at the Kiehl's store at the airport. I was actually pretty stupid and bought two jars of it. So I've been using this for a few months now and …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Dulce de Leche

Oct/18/2018

Generally speaking, I'm not a huge fan of OPI polishes. But I'm currently living abroad (SE Asia) and regular polishes at nail salons are hard to come by. They use mostly gel colours, which I don't like due to what it does to the quality of my nails. So lately, I'm having to get lots of manicures with OPI polishes. The latest one I've tried is Dulce de Leche, based on …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense

Oct/09/2018

This is my #1 holy grail perfume of all time. I've been wearing this for over 15 years. I still love it and wear it at least once a week, if not more. I think it works for both daytime and a dressier occasion. Like all perfumes, it smells a teeny bit differently on everyone, so you will have to test it on and wear it for a day to get the full effect. It's pricey, but long lasting. I …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Powder Brush

I don't get the hype about this brush. Yes, it's soft enough and yes, it's fluffy. But I don't think it does the job all that well. It only (kinda) works for loose powder all over your face. I find that it picks up way too much product, but barely deposits any of it. So in my experience, it just picks up a whole lot of product and wastes it. I just really don't understand …Read more

I normally like Kiehl's products, but this serum did absolutely nothing for me. It was recommended to me by the sales clerk at the airport while browsing the Kiehl's store there. She swore this was an amazing product. I see zero difference in my lines. Better to save your money and get Botox.

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

5.0

Aug/23/2018

Best eye makeup remover I've ever tried. I've been using it for 15+ years and loving it. I get eyelash extensions now, so I'm looking for an oil free formula to preserve the life of my lashes. But if it weren't for the extensions, I would stick with this. It's expensive, but one bottle lasts me a very long time. The way I use it is by first wetting my eyes so the mascara …Read more

Toners - Neutrogena - Pore Refining Toner

I used to love this toner when I was younger and had oilier, acne prone skin. But as I've gotten older, I've had to stop using as it was really drying me out. No wonder, since one of the first ingredients is alcohol. It definitely works well for younger, greasier, acne prone skin though.
