I use mascara for everyday makeup and I prefer formulas which lengthen lashes and do not flake. This mascara does the job decently. I put it on my 5 am and take it off at 6pm. Live in a tropical country though my office has air conditioning but my eyelids also tend to be oily. No smudging with this one. I also notice better effect when applied twice.

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

Holy grail for everyday and for special events. I have combination oily skin and for days when I need work-through-night-out, I apply three layers of this and it can last nearly 24 hours. It needs some patting throughout the day to reduce the oil. But the finish is just beautiful - an odd matte-dewy look which basically covers the pores. It doesn't cover skin imperfections though - it's …Read more

I bought this because I was intrigued by the premise of slapping on a toner-like product overnight. I was pleasantly surprised because the next day, my skin was softer and more radiant. I have combination skin and I use this once to twice a month just to decongest my skin of dry patches and overall fatigue. I've stopped using exfoliants entirely and just use this to declog my face of …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous - Terra Copper

It's a really pretty color, even on fair skin - a blend of reddish brown with a hint of metallic. There's enough pink to veer it away from the nude spectrum.

My only concern is, no matter how thickly I apply it, it has poor staying power - two hours tops without eating.

I love foundations which come with a pump so it was love at first sight :) I use Tender Beige (20) and it's a good fit for me (I use NARS Ceylon). I slathered this on over my sunscreen at 9:50 am and by 6:15, it still looked ok (slightly shiny but I had no retouches; I had a huge steak lunch so got the meat sweats too that day). It blends so well and did not oxidise. So far my favourite …Read more

I bought this on a whim because of the price. Am quite impressed with it because after seven hours, my face is nowhere near as oily as it usually is. I got it in 817 which is a little too dark or too pink for me but it didn't oxidise much. I apply it by putting two squirts of it (one squirt is sizeable, about half penny) on the back of my hand and dotting my cheeks, forehead and nose and …Read more

My only peeve is the wand has some loose fibres that can latch on to one's lashes but they are easy to remove. Overall, I like this mascara. No raccoon eyes for me, looks natural, holds the curl - am from a humid country and I have oily lids. I wear this from 5:15 am until I remove it with a water cleanser. It takes a bit to remove it but for me worth it, given how it performs during the day …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - REN Clean Skincare - Rosa Centifolia 3 in 1 Cleansing Water

I've used the This Works 5-in-1 water and was looking for a cheaper alternative. This one does not leave a greasy film after application and it clears my make-up pretty well. It's my first step to cleansing and it takes off waterproof mascara (I wear a coat a day). I usually workout after removing my make-up and this does not feel uncomfortable when the skin starts to sweat.

I was on the hunt for a good drugstore foundation that I can wear everyday. I have combination skin and wear makeup (on average) from 5 am- 6 pm.

This glided beautifully on the skin and blended well.. I wear the color nude ivory and it matches my skin well (I wear Nars Sheerglow in Ceylan, YSL Youth Liberator Foundation in BD10 and Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation in O20). It had …
