I've fair Asian Chinese Skin tone and this works well for me. Except sometimes, when I accidentally pile on a tad more of these i end up with cheeks resembling those 18th Century French Court ladies.
Too much is what I call it!

You have to be careful not to slab on more than twice on each cheek if you did an adequate once over with your brush. Am using a rounded make up brush …

Eye Shadow - L.A. Girl - Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Collection

I saw this at a sale and fell in love with the shimmery glowy palette. (Nude range) I was buying quite a few make up items so I didn't want to splurge on eye shadows. And I'm not one to always put on eye shadow. But ever since I got this, I've been putting it on almost everyday to complete my look.

For a 'noob' in eye shadows, this is a pretty good …

Foundations - LANEIGE - BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50

Sep/05/2016

This was all the rage when it first came out right? Once I use this, I cannot see myself using any other BB cushion again. At least for a while.

So I purchased my first one at the Laneige retail store which cost me SSGD59, but it comes with a refill. So that's rather value for money A refill typically costs about SGD28. But for someone who's just started using it, it's a …

Powder - L'Oreal Paris - Mat Magique BB Veil

This is a low-medium coverage foundation compact powder.

I usually would use primer+concealer+BB cream+loose powder, so this is really just for me to bring around in my bag for touch up if needed.

Pros:
- Medium coverage
- It is quite matte which is good for my oily skin, but the staying power is moderate.
- Light and compact packaging- when you open it up, …

I got the green shade for the purpose of covering red blemishes and my dark eye bags that are like reddish brown.

I'd dot 3 times under each eye and once on red blemishes then using my sponge or finger to blend it out.

pros:
-it does Ok coverage
-value for money

cons:
-I hate the process of applying it.
it kinda dries out when I start blending it …

primers are optional for me. I'm a lazy person!
I guess I was blessed with Ok pores but in the recent 2 years the pores on my cheek area closer to the nose started expanding??

this does a little Magic.
I'd only apply a thin layer on boy cheeks near the nose, and my nose.
it smoothens and blurs out the skin evenly but not drastically.
pros:
-does …

I'm not so big on concealers but this does the job and rather value for money.
been using this for a few years now. Primarily targeted at my dark eye rings and blemishes.

On normal complexion days, I would give this 4 stars as I wouldn't need to touch up. but overall rating at 3.

pros:
-easy application as it is smooth and handy with creamy texture for easy …

What I like:
- The colour is absolutely flattering
- I have fair Asian skin and this really stands out but in a natural looking way
- Will probably last me another year. A little at a time is needed really
- Great staying power!

What I hate:
- …

This is my first time using a brush cleanser and this does the job pretty well.
I know I'm suppose to use it often but I didn't want to spend so much time on cleaning my brushes.
Also, I guess I should've gotten the brush shampoo instead.

This works just as well and I love the scent!

I can't say it works very well because I had to spray my brush …
