First let me say I am extremely unhappy with the shade I got despite getting it matched by a SA in a store. I was matched to NC30, which looked ok in the store light, but once outside, it appeared as orange patches all over my face. I know I am yellow-toned so the SA got that part right but 30 is just too dark for me. When I went back she insisted 30 is my shade and 20 would just be too light …Read more

Moisturizers - CHANEL - Hydramax+ Active Moisture Cream [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/19/2012

I want to write a review for the Hydramax +Active Nutrition cream but couldnt find an entry for it so I have put it here. I am 4 weeks into using it morning and night, and still loving it so far. I was turned into it while trying out foundation at a Chanel counter, and the SA gave me a 5ml sample for this afterwards because I bought a Coco Rouge Shine, and I mentioned that I didnt find the Gel …Read more

Highlighters - Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Brick Highlighter - Bronze

Pros:
Very fine shimmery effect, not gaudish at all.
Great pigmentation.
Easy to apply
Multiple shade strips to mix and customise, can double as eyeshadow

Cons:
The darker strips are a bit too dark for fairer skins.

So, nothing wrong with this product overall, it's just that I bought it from Strawberrynet without trying it first, and found it …

Dec/23/2011

Ahhhh, I have started using mineral foundation on this brand, done the full circuit of experimenting with others (Glominerals, Elizabeth Arden, Clinique) and come back to BM again. The reason is the shade Light matches me perfectly, fair skin with strong yellow undertones. Other brands that I tried always contain too much pink tones (although EA was pretty neutral so ok for me). Since they …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Pastel Shadow Options Eye Palette

Dec/23/2011

I have been obsessing about this palette ever since I saw it walking pass the Bobbi Brown counter in a department store, it looks lovely in the palette with muted grey shades and pretty sparkly options, as well as a versatile silvery highlighter shade and black liner shade. The perfect palette. How looks deceive. Anyway I went to try it eventually, and was somewhat surprised at how messy the …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Superstay

This is one darn good concealer! Its dryish consistency means that once you apply it to spot blemishes it stays on without budging even when you apply foundation over it. Brilliant. I tend to use it for covering red marks and acne rather than under the eye. It has a doe-foot type wand, and I just dab a bit on the back of my hand and dot it from there onto where i need with the tip of my finger …Read more

My HG mascara, compared to plenty other more or less expensive ones like lancome, ester lauded vibration, Dior show, max factor, loreal, you name it. I like that the applicator is the spirally sort that really separates lashes well (Elizabeth arden's ceramide mascara also has it). Anyway, it does what it says to really lengthen lashes, no clumping at all, no smudging. This is the only …Read more

I think this brush is pretty good, I bought it to apply mineral foundation because it felt soooo soft. Before that I have been using id bare's kabuki brush for application. The EA brush is not as dense as the id brush, therefore compared to the id brush it doesnt give as much coverage of mineral foundation application. Also doesnt pick up powder as well as the id brush. Which makes it …Read more

Apr/10/2010

this is the firsst primer i have ever used, and now that i have tried, i dont want to ever wear foundation without it! I bought this after reading positive reviews from other users, and i am very happy. It is a clear gel consistency, unscented, neither drying nor sticky, and you don't feel it on your face. I use a mineral powder foundation, but lately have found with my skin getting dryer it …Read more

Mascara - Estée Lauder - TURBOLASH-All Effects Motion Mascara

Oct/01/2009

Luv this! The assembly was straight forward enough, you click the motor part onto the handle of the wand, put out the plastic tab protecting the battery, and it vibrates whenever the wand is open, and shuts down when the tube is twisted close. What I love about this mascara is it gives me the longest lashes ever, probably 150% of lengthening (Lancome Virtuose was 2nd), curls (which held for 1/2 …Read more
