This has become my go-to foundation now! My oily dehydrated skin went haywire this year. All my trusted foundations, even purportedly hydrating Serum Foundation from The Ordinary, were too dry and cakey on me despite me rationing the tiniest amount. I began to avoid matte foundations like the plague.

This foundation, however, gave me the most beautiful finish with medium coverage. Yes …

I have very oily, yet dehydrated skin. Foundations geared towards oily skin are often too dry and cakey (Fenty and Shiseido’s Syncro Skin), so I’m branching out to dewy finishes. I’m really happy with this! It’s not just “good for the price”, it’s pretty damn remarkable.

This foundation is scentless and has a very thin consistency. Despite its claims of being low coverage, I find that …

Grabbed this on a whim in Japan because I ran out of foundation.

The coverage was surprisingly good - I have quite a number of scars and broke capillaries on my cheeks, and this covered them up completely. It’s a little thick, but spreads and blends easily. The finish is pretty dewy. It also lasted through all 12 hours of sightseeing under the blazing sun, although it lacked oil …

Primer/ Corrector - MILANI - Make It Last Setting Spray Prime + Correct + Set

It’s a little more expensive here in Singapore. The bottle has a good weight to it, and I got real lucky with the mister.

However, it didn’t prolong the longevity of my makeup. Even worse, something in this spray makes my eyes uncomfortable (think mild swelling?). It also made my mascara feel sticky, like when you just wake up and your eyelids are crusted. I wanted to love it so badly …

Primer/ Corrector - essence - Instant Matt Makeup Setting Spray

This was my first setting spray ever so I’m not sure how it measures up to others on the market. I have very oily skin that cannot be salvaged by an extensive skincare routine, primers, or setting powders. I have not noticed any difference in my makeup wear time after using this, nor does it keep my face matte. The mist isn’t very fine, and squirts a little.

My oily skin is pretty fickle when it comes to foundations. The shade match wowed me - I got this in 180, which fits my warm olive skintone to a T. I was so elated by the initial discovery that I made concessions for the products' shortcomings. It would immediately apply cakey to my oily skin, no matter how thin a layer, and could not be remedied with a small dose of serum, which many people …Read more

Cleansers - MUJI - Mild Cleansing Oil

Jan/07/2016

Plain olive oil had always been my go-to for makeup removal ever since I started wearing makeup. Cost effective, yes. The time spent on removing my makeup with cotton pads, however, was enough to put me off. Being the cheapskate I am, I simply gritted my teeth and bore with it. After all the reviews left right and centre lauding the Muji Cleansing Oil (sensitive) and its price tag, I finally bit …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser

This product takes off my makeup, waterproof liner and all, in a jiffy. Things were looking peachy at first; it didn't leave my skin feeling tight and squeaky, the residual stickiness wasn't unbearable, and overall it didn't dry my skin out. I loved it, for the price point, the simplicity, and the lack of scent. I am generally iffy about taking a makeup remover to my lips, but …Read more

I've been using this for about 3 years and finally made a switch. I purchased this when it first came out, back when I was 15. I used this as a mask thrice a week. I couldn't really tell the difference between using this as a cleanser and a scrub - the beads don't dissolve as touted when I add water to the paste. Texture is pretty fine and grainy. I love the smell! Sadly, I never …Read more

When I swatched these at the store, I was amazed by the buttery-ness and pigmentation of the product. I quickly snapped up 010 Look Me in The Ice and another rose gold colour. As pretty as the snakeskin(?) texture was, it really hampered the product's texture- unlike what I saw in the store, my brush picked up chunks of glitter instead. 010 also had a very funny smell; it smelled like really …Read more
