Oct/10/2011

I'm so glad my search in makeupalley for a good contour product led me to Ben Nye's Contour 1. Previously, all my contour powders were either too red, or had shimmers in them. I was desperate for a contour powder that would look natural in photos, and wasn't too expensive. This is it - a greyish-brown toned contour powder that showed up well on my NC30-35 skin. I got mine from an …Read more

Doesn't cool, doesn't moisturise. The cooling effect simply wasn't strong enough. The only good thing is that it's not greasy, so I can walk around immediately after applying it. Glad I got it in a trade instead of buying it.

Jan/02/2011

Although it's on the expensive side for such a small bottle, but with Mat Velvet I don't need concealers any more. Just one layer using a foundation brush covers my reddish and brownish splotches. Colour is a good match for my skin tone. My skin looks perfectly airbrushed in pictures. But, there are a few bad points about this product. It rubs off easily. Since I use foundation on my …Read more

This is a review for the latest Kate foundation, Kate High Coverage Foundation.

In my opinion Kate high coverage foundation's coverage is not very high. I have a lot of red and light brown blotches and dots on my face. I tried out the tester and can still see the blemishes; just lighter and more faint. It also can't cover some tiny flat dark brown/black moles on my face. But …

I have the pore putty in clear (blue cap). My skin looks and feels softer, without any heaviness or stickiness. There is no unnecessary fragrance, colour or *shudder* shimmery stuff added. A really affordable makeup base (around US$14). Can't say anything about oil control as my skin's oil production has been rather irregular lately.

Out of the three items in the kit, I felt the toner fared the worst. It left my face very sticky; even after a few minutes it did not evaporate/get absorbed. Bad )=

The cleansing foam was fine; it did not cause any breakouts and my skin feels less oiler now. But the five minutes wait to kill bacteria is a bit too long. 1-2 minutes is fine, but 5 minutes is a bit excessively long …

In my opinion, a pretty 'meh' product. The tiny glitter in the product serve no purpose whatsoever. I tested it out by applying it on freshly cleansed skin and within two hours, I was oily...My HG Maybelline Angelfit pore zero base can last at least 6 hours for half the price, so go figure. This product definitely needs to be used with some loose powder.
Well, at least it did not …

I have been searching for an affordable lip concealer after my Canmake one failed me, and I've found it!

This product is feels more moist and pigmented than Canmake's, and managed to cover my dark lips effectively.

I bought it from ebay for around SGD$16 (US$11-12), shipping included.

Mar/29/2010

I thought that it was quite expensive for such a small amount, but eventually purchased it since I bought into the whole "no fragrance, no colour" thing. The product smelt weird, but it was bearable.
I applied it before going to sleep, and after waking up, found that my forehead and cheeks were way more oiler than usual. Furthermore, I think it caused my forehead to break out a …
