Got the travel size from Sephora. It’s ok. Nothing special. It does add some volume and length but nothing dramatic, especially for the price. It flakes slightly throughout the day. In hot humid climate, it transferred slightly to under eye area. Good news, this removes easily with micellar water. No under eye panda after removal. The brush is nice as well. Not as compact as Too Faced Better Than …Read more

Having used both this and the Nexcare, I'd say this is far superior. It sticks better to skin, absorbs more, resealable packaging, and more sizes. If you're on a budget, get the Nexcare. This is slightly expensive if you're prone to breakouts and need plenty of this. So do check out your local stores for any deals on this product if you're planning on stocking up.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%

This is best paired with the Niacinamide 10% from The Ordinary. On its own, it doesn't really give that much outstanding result. But when paired together spots fade faster, skin tone becomes even, and better texture. Like others said, this leaves tacky feeling. Too much and it will ball. It's a stable formulation. No irritation even when used twice a day. With only 12% not sure how much …Read more

Sunscreen - MooGoo - Natural Sunscreen SPF40

After two bottle of this it's time to write a review since I haven't seen one here. Its high merit is also its flaw. With high % of zinc oxide, the highest in any sunscreen product, expect the gloppiness (takes time to rub in), greasiness (if you're combination to oily), white cast, and tackiness. It's a GOOD sunscreen no doubt. Fantastic for intense sun exposure activities …Read more

I was VERY skeptical about the hype of this mascara. VERY! Every makeup guru swears by this this. Luckily my first tube was a gift from Sephora. Saves me the trouble from having to splurge just to see if it works. I finally understand what the hype was all about. I've used this for some time before writing this.

Pros:
- Creates nice volume
- Holds curl well (My …

Lips - Tarte Cosmetics - Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/13/2017

The shade Rose did not agree with me. When I swatched it at Sephora it reminded me of Sephora's Rouge Cream lipstick in R19 Charmer. It was a complete match. But when I applied it on my lips the colour is different between the two. I adore the Charmer but the Rose is just too pale on me (NC40). Plus I don't really like the finish of this lip paint. Yes, it dries quickly but It's …Read more

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Maracuja Creaseless Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

Jun/05/2017

This is a no for me. I have two samples from Sephora. I tried and wanted to like it. I really tried but it's just not for me after several attempts. The shade light-medium is just too yellow (I'm medium with warm yellow undertone so it's funny that it's too yellow). Despite being very pigmented upon application it didn't last very long on my oily skin. After the first …Read more

I'm 50/50 on this one. I like it, but I also have issues with it. I like to use this with Too Faced Better Than Sex for a more dramatic look.

I've tried the deluxe size before trying the actual size mascara. They're not 100% the same. I LOVE the deluxe size. LOVED IT! But it's not available for sale alone in my country. It's always paired with other Tarte …

This includes all of the brushes that was once available online.

I own 2 brushes (shader and blending brushes). Got them during the offer "buy 2 Super Shock shadows get 1 brush free".

1) Both have synthetic bristles. Soft pink and rose gold handle. Arrived covered in cheap plastic, no protective plastic cover over bristles (seriously, Colourpop?)

2) …

Masks - innisfree - Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack

May/25/2017

This helped to sooth my skin after bad breakouts and to reduce the dry patches on my skin. It was a true gamble for me getting this product. There's no sample size so like it or not you just have to get the actual size. But this is, I think, the best moisturising mask I've used. No breakouts, doesn't clog pores, doesn't increase oil production, calms skin, adds/restore …Read more
