Loose Powders - Tarte Cosmetics - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2014

This was a pretty mediocre powder in my opinion. It isn't cheap and only works like any average powder. My key use of applying powder is to keep my skin matte but this doesn't do much for my oily skin in hot summer weather. I had bought it due to raves from beauty youtuber frmheadtotoe. She had also recommended tarte's blush in exposed and I had loved it. The packaging of putting …Read more

Lip Treatments - Avene - Cold Cream Lip Balm

Mar/12/2014

I am almost ready to toss this! I had initially bought this to replace my burts bee mango lipbalm..not that I dislike the burts bees one but it had a pretty strong fragrance to it. I bought the avene one thinking it would work even better and without the fragrance. After using this for about a week, I didn't notice any difference to my chapped lips. I used it often as an overnight lip …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

I have used the liquid colorstay formula and that def has better oil control. In comparison, even after wearing it on for more than 10hrs, it still looks fresh. The whipped creme version looks softer and more natural on. It lasts for a shorter time, about 7-8 hours and the oil control isn't as good. However, because it looks so good on the skin, I don't mind so much. There isn't …Read more

Eyeliner - essence - Gel Eyeliner - London Baby! [DISCONTINUED]

Oct/27/2012

This is a pretty awesome product. It is dirt cheap and yet it's of a superb quality. I wonder how they manage their costs and quality so well. The pigmentation is really good, one swipe and it's enough to make my eyes look defined. The colour London Baby is a really unique one and I absolutely love it. It looks like a mix between a brown and the graphite shimmer shade from bobbi brown …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Exposed

Sep/02/2012

I had to ask my aunt to purchase it for me from canada as it is unavailable where i'm at. Finally, I get to see what the rave over this is about. This is indeed a lovely blush. As many people have described, it is a soft dusty pink colour that leans just a little over the mauve/brown side. It is super wearable and so easy to blend on the cheek. Despite it being humid and hot here, the colour …Read more

Aug/07/2012

I have this in the shade #52 Vanilla. This matches my asian skin perfectly. It is also a really light foundation for the hot humid weather in Singapore where the temperatures are on an average of 37.5 degrees celsius. It has a light fruity scent which makes it a delight to put on and very easy to blend. It's so lightweight, you can hardly feel like you're wearing any foundation at all …Read more

Eye Primer - NYX Professional Makeup - HD High Definition Eyeshadow Base

Jul/31/2012

This is quite an awesome product and at an affordable price too. I was quite sceptical about it seeing that it was an eye primer at a low cost. When I first applied it, it was smooth and easy to spread and I thought to myself, would this make my lids even more oily during the day? will this really hold my eye makeup up? Well, I was pleasantly surprised that this does hold my eyeshadows up through …Read more

Polishes - essence - Iced Strawberry Cream (#2 in Nude glam line)

5.0

Jul/26/2012

I absolutely love this colour. As the name of this shade states, Iced Strawberry Cream, this is a nudish baby pink that looks lovely on the nails for an everyday colour. It's girly, cute and oh so sweet. Two coats = opaque baby pink with a satin finish. It's really cheap and for that price, I think this is a steal. I'd definitely be stocking up on these. I used to love OPI's …Read more

Lip Gloss - KANEBO - Kate lipgloss

3.0

Jul/26/2012

This is the tube form of lipgloss. Applys rather thickly, as in you would be able to feel that there's something on your lips. Rather sticky feeling but that means it stays on your lips for a longer time. Very shiny, almost vinyl finish. Sheer colours.

I have this in the shade 07, strawberry sorbet. The colour is really pretty, hot pink with a tinge of red in it. In the tube, it looks really bright but because these glosses apply sheer.. it turns out as a pop of pinky red on the lips. Very pretty, almost as if you ate a cherry-pink popsicle with fine shimmer. lol. It costs $33 sgd where I live in, which is pricey but then again, it's a …Read more
