Jan/05/2011

I am NC30, warm with yellow undertones. I love JCs, and have 9 of them including this. Espiegle looks peach in the pan, but pulled peachy pink on me, leaning slightly more towards pink. It reminds me of NARS Deep Throat, and when I swatched them side by side, they definitely look more or less the same though Espiegle is lighter and and is slightly less intense than Deep Throat. Espiegle gives me …Read more

I was really curious if this will work with LIQUID foundation. It is meant to be used with mineral powder foundation. All the other reviewers used it with mineral powder, and there I was thinking, "hey, it'll be cool if I can use this with both my mineral powder and liquid foundations, a 2 in 1 thing..". So I went to ask the LM sales assistant, and she wasn't sure herself. She …Read more

I got the 500ml tub which comes with a pump, which I love. No scooping required. Bought it last year due to the grear reviews here. At that time I had virgin, hair bit it tends to be frizzy, poofy and coarse. Tried this a couple of times, varying the amount of time I left it in, and was disappointed with the result. My hair felt kind of dry after that, had even MORE volume (totally unwanted …Read more

I use this underneath my MAC Paint Pots or any cream eyeshadow for that matter and it'll make the colours last through 2-3 hours of tennis in hot, humid Malaysia. Lasted through an hour of boxing too. Btw, after putting my cream shadows through the 2 hours sweat test, this will be my findings (I always use an eye cream around my eye area, and no eye primers, and my lids are normal, not super …Read more

I'm NC 30 in MAC, warm with yellow undertones. My best colour match is Sunny Beige. I have dry skin though I do get somewhat oily at the T-zone. I stay in the tropics, read hot and humid and I'm 41, read fine lines and some pigmentations. This foundation is great for the fine lines part, and also for the pigmentations part. BUT it is does make my tzone shiny after a while especially if …Read more

I'm NC 30, warm and yellow toned. This is part of the holiday 2010 collection. A off white cream colour which is great as a highlighter (not too shiny. I totally dislike too shiny highlighters); a shimmery neutral pink; a most gorgeous shimmery warm brown; and an equally gorgeous darker brown. I apply the lighter brown all over the eyelid and blend the pink on top of light brown. Then I use …Read more

Mascara - Dior - DiorShow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer

An extremely good mascara base. I've used those from Lancome, Shiseido, Shu Uemura and Chanel (didn't like the Shiseido mascara base btw), and been sticking to the Chanel one till I found THIS! It somehow manages to fatten up the lashes whilst making mascara application easier and less clumpy and separates the lashes well! Even on the second application! A magic wand indeed!!

Hands down my favourite lipgloss ever! I'm NC30, warm/yellow skin tones. Applies tangerine coloured initially but settles down in a few minutes to a warm, peach hue with a nice golden even sheen (not GLITTER). What a nice sexy looking golden sheen! It is not a yellow gold golden colour, more like a uhh..peach + beige + a bit of orangey coral all churned up with tiny tiny micro gold flecks as …Read more

Aug/17/2010

I'm NC30, warm with strong yellow skin tones. It was only recently that I actually got around to trying the Roque Laques, because I thought they were going to be super sticky and super intense and I would go around feeling that there would be this SOMETHING on my lips and that something being so creamy looking will go everywhere, like on my teeth. And it would be there when I smile and until …Read more
