Makeup Brushes - shu uemura - Handy Compact Lip Brush Sable

1.0

Aug/21/2017

I am reviewing the Shu Portable Lip Brush - the one that is with retractable cap.
This is probably one of my worst beauty buys.
The bristles are too long and wimpy. Thus it doesn't give a firm outline, nor does it apply/deposit lipstick well in that it tends to 'rub'/'remove' the lipstick instead of being able to 'paint' them on.
It's going …

Edit @ 4Aug2017- I still stand by my rave reviews. Got my 4th Ink today - #144 Vivant. Gorgeous colour on my. When on my lips, I look absolutely bright and cheery. Vivant is definitely my favourite of the lot. I'll buy in dozens and stock up if they should ever discontinue Rouge Ink!

In two months, I bought 3 of these Rouge Ink - 142 Creatif, 148 Libere …

Lips - Dior - Lip Tattoo Long-Wear Colored Tint

May/28/2017

This is such a huge letdown. Wished I had read the members' reviews before mine. I share all that was said in the reviews below .... 'color does not apply evenly', even after another layer or two after drying in between..... fades unevenly..... The stain stays put, only on HAND swatches... and for me the biggest peeve " Even after 2 coats it would not stick to the middle of …Read more

Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder

I've stopped using loose powder as they were starting to emphasize on the age-lines beneath my eyes. But then again, I could had been using way too much and with the wrong application (puff puff all over the face, every square inch of my face with a light layer of loose powder - SO WRONG now I know!).

With this powder, I either use the designated puff (sold separately), applied …

Aug/30/2016

Edit/Update:
I use this occasionally. Of late I’ve noticed that my gripe on the colour being sheer etc is no longer an issue. Perhaps that was when it’s new?? I don’t know. Anyway, I now love this lipstick. Texture and colour wise. I love the red yet not the usual red from most of my red lippies. Today I even got a compliment from my male hairdresser that my lip colour is beautiful. Ok, this …

Lipstick - Estée Lauder - Pure color envy in Rebellious Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/26/2016

This has now taken over the reign of my favourite lipsticks from Nars Semi-mattes. Lovely to use, doesn't give me dry scaly peeling skins on my lips, easy to apply as it's very hydrating yet wears on semi-matte (my favourite texture in a lipstick as I don't like glossy shiny wet lips look).... Rebellious Rose is a beautiful colour which I thought will turn slightly too pinky …Read more

Jul/04/2016

I had actually deleted my first review, thinking that I should give it another chance. Here I am now, repeating the review I deleted.

Morning - I prepped my nails/cuticles, gave it 2 coats with ample drying time in between. Did not do any housework or washing, except getting my nails wet from my shower and cleansing my face. By evening, after my shower, I already noticed rough edges …

I started using this with my foundation exactly 2 months ago. Can't live without it now. Will repurchase although I have a BIG issue with it.
I've used it for only 7 weeks (once daily) and already there's mold on it. Before one says I've not managed it properly, let me say,
@I clean it after EVERY USE with the original BB soap
@I let is stand on its side …

May/21/2016

I'm hopeless at reviewing fragrances, other than Love, Like, Dislike. This is definitely Love Love Love. On my skin, where a lot of PARFUM will just disappear in 5 - 30 minutes, I am very surprised that this EDT stays past the 30 minutes on me. I love that this smells so good, and it's one of those that I can identify straight away. I usually come across many 'lovely' …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Dior - Gel Coat

For its price, worst top coat ever. Chips the next day, gel shine was never there, drying time tedious. Compared to Rimmel Salon Pro, well, can't even compare. I'll stay with Rimmel Salon Pro.
