Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/24/2009

Like most eye products, this is quite packed with silicones, which helps eye make-up glide effortlessly. But due to the hot/humid weather here year-round, it slips off my face...together with the eye make-up. It made my eyes runny. It also doesn't help with moisture. It doesn't hydrate at all. Just feels velvety but still dry underneath. Dunno how much it costs, it was given as a …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - ORIGINS - A Perfect World for Eyes

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/24/2009

Love the scent. Love the packaging. It doesn't seem to moisturize my eye area, though. Consistency is like that of Clinique All About Eyes, or other eye-cream/gel brands. Maybe it's the silicone. But it lacks H2O, the hydrating feeling on contact. Price is pretty steep, too.

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 227 Large Fluff Brush

Aug/24/2009

Been searching for a fluffy brush to color my whole eyelid with a wash of dark brown (as for shadow). I have asian eyes (not hollowed), which lacks depth. I find that using a dark chocolate tone looks more natural rather than piling up beige/taupe shadow. In order to have a wash effect, I used to use a small blush brush that came free with an old compact. I went to the MAC counter & the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Stila - Passion Fruit Lipglaze

I was surprised & delighted to find that Stila is finally here! The sought-after brand has eluded me for years! I once bought it in a trip to Thailand. The price here is like half of what is posted online in the US. I purchased this on impulse, falling in love with the scent & color when applied. But after 30min of application, only the shine remained. No trace of color was left. …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Blot Powder - Light

3.0

Aug/24/2009

I used to use MAC Select Sheer in NC05. I find it's coverage beautiful, not thick enought to be mask-like/foundation-like, but not thin like a baby powder would apply (I used to use baby powder when I was younger). The Select Sheer would cover slight freckles but not look like I'm wearing anything on top of my skin. But alas! it turns to dark pinkish/orangish after an hour or so. …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Honey I Washed the Kids Soap

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/08/2009

This scent wakes me up in the morning. Smells of gourmet sweets & baked goods! Even though I'm still sleepy & hate to go to work, I always look forward to a good sud with this. The only problem is that it melts rather quickly as compared to other soaps. You also can't use the top "honey" concentrate. It's too hard & scratches my skin! The soap part is …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

5.0

May/04/2009

This is great! But if you live in Asia, I suggest getting the Gatsby brand one, which is I think the original & has larger-cut sheets & more sheets for less the price. It's truly a miracle product! Great for oily skin that breaks out due to sweat mixing with dirt. It's hygienic due to the fact that you don't touch your otherwise clean brush/puff on your oil & …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping (2009) [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/04/2009

I'm loving my Perfect Topping right now! Just barely touch the brush on the product & it picks up a lot! I gives you that neutral dewy glow when swiped across cheeks & under browbones. Each one is different & mine is pretty neutral. I asked the SA to give me their lightest swirl, avoiding the brown veins. Unfortunately, I think Mac International ships darker shades/swirls …Read more
