General comments: Excellent mineral powder foundation!!!
I've always been skeptical about these mineral powders and even more so after trying several of the hyped up brands (yeah... bare minerals is horrible imo). So with the same mindset, I tried Lancome's because I'm a HUGE fan of this brand's products and of course, I'm blown away. Lancome's products have …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Pomegranate Noir

3.0

Too strong for me and after a few hours starts to smell like my medicine cabinet. Combining it with a very light floral Jo Malone fragrance helps a bit to "dilute" it, but still, not my cup of tea.

Fragrances - Jo Malone - French Lime Blossom

Dec/23/2008

My comments here will be similar to that of my review for Vintage Gardenia. French Lime Blossom on its own is just above average imo, but when combined with a few other Jo Malone fragrances, they've drastically changed my opinion about it and now I love it! Some of the fragrance combining recommendations by Jo Malone are not suitable for this scent imo, so definitely experiment with it …Read more

Beautiful scent! I really like it together with one of Jo Malone's other fragrances (my own concoction which I won't reveal lol) and together they smell DIVINE. Although I do admit that Vintage Gardenia on it's own is not enough to lift me up to heaven lol. Also, I personally find that the recommendations of fragrance combining by Jo Malone are not suitable for this scent, so I …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Honeysuckle and Jasmine

Honeysuckle and Jasmine is my absolute FAVORITE Jo Malone fragrance! My grandmother used to make a 'jasmine-brooch' for me every morning by taking our backyard's jasmine flowers and assembling them together on a pin. Jasmine is not very often seen in the west, but where I grew up in Asia, our backyard was full of pots of these flowers and they're commonly found on the streets …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Orange Blossom Cologne

Wonderful refreshing fragrance that reminds me of my childhood back in Asia where there was a field of orange trees near our home. I love it not only for its unique scent on its own but also how well it combines with other fragrances!
I personally do not find that it wears off too fast, I mean, it is a cologne (or somewhat equivalent of a EDT) afterall, so it really doesn't make sense …

Powder - CHANEL - Mat Lumiere Luminous Matte Powder Makeup SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/29/2008

Well Chanel finally came out with something similar to replace their beloved Double Perfection powder, but Mat Lumiere is not at all the same... It's much more powdery, does not have enough pigment, and the powder is not as soft. The harder consistency and lack of pigment really make me "dig" into it, rather than just glide the sponge on like I used to with the Double …Read more

I really like this! It's a nude lipstick with shimmer. Very wearable and easy maintainance.
Cons: no SPF and I think all NARS' packaging looks cheap...

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Catfight

I really like this colour. I usually go for nudes or soft pinks, so this is my first "dramatic" lipstick lol. Obviously I'm kinda scared of doing deep reds and other bold lip colours, so this is also what I like about Catfight cuz it's very much wearable. It's not high maintainance at all (so I don't wear a lipliner, actually I've never worn one lol)! In fact, I …Read more
