Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - Light Blue Eau de Toilette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2010

As alot of other reviewers have commented, this scent is light and clean, and has a crisp citrus-y note to it. I am not usually a 'clean, fresh, citrus' smelling girl- I prefer sweeter and deeper scents like Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb and Miss Dior Cherie. Most clean scents remind me of a freshly cleaned toilet, or even worse- air fresheners which is why I avoid them. BUT after I …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - INTENSE XXL mascara

Jun/15/2010

An Asian Review:
I have not-full-but-not-sparse, medium length lashes and sensitive eyes. Though this mascara fared better than the previous Maybelline mascaras I have tried, it is still not as good as I expected it to be.

First I curl my lashes, and I apply the primer all over and followed by the mascara. It does give a lovely thick look to my lashes but it did not hold my curl …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Discovery Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2010

I remember I tried this years ago- it was targeted towards the Asian women with sparse lashes. I fit the bill so I picked this up and gave it a go. I have sensitive eyes and thought the formula didnt irritate my eyes, it didnt do much for my lashes either. Doesnt give much volume, curl or anything like that but then again, it wasnt designed to do so. The smaller brush does come handy to reach the …Read more

I have medium length, straight, fine and not-full-but-not-sparse-either lashes and sensitive eyes. I wanted some volume with the mascara but it didnt do much for me. Didnt irritate my sensitive eyes, coats my lashes nicely but thats about it.

Skincare - Face - Laura Mercier - Essential Water

Jun/15/2010

I have this Laura Mercier Skincare Essential Water in Geranium which is supposed to act as an astringent and purifies combination skin. It's rather like a face mist and you can use it over or under make up. It comes in a 100ml/4 fl. oz. bottle and the nozzle is pretty good, you can squirt once and have an even mist on your face. The scent is quite comforting and organic, however the downside …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Unlisted Brand - Methode Swiss- Bi-phase Eye Makeup Remover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/14/2010

I am surprised no one here has reviewed anything by Methode Swiss. To be honest, I was never really interested in this brand- I saw it in SaSa but never did check out their range. Until I received a full size bottle as a GWP from SaSa and I was running out of my favourite eye makeup remover (Garnier Clean Sensitive, read review) so I decided to break it out of its package.

Just a short …

Lip Gloss - Trucco - Divinyls lipgloss in Skinny Dip

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/07/2010

Skinny Dip is my favourite nude lip gloss! I have tried a few- Chanel, Dior and while they are good, they just pale in comparison to this. Its a very small tube but dont let the colour and size deceive you. It lasts quite a while. The smell is really yummy- a reviewer said chocolates but I smell a lil bit of vanilla. Texture wise, its thick, but not gooey like MAC's lipglass and the colour …Read more

Cleansers - CHANEL - LAIT CONFORT creamy cleansing milk confort+Anti pollution-Face and eyes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/07/2010

I have been using this cleansing milk for 2 weeks now and so far so good! I have sensitive, acne-prone and combination skin so it is hard to find a cleanser which doesnt dry me out or cause me to break out. Previously I used the Purete line by Chanel but I find that leaves my skin tight after each wash. With the Lait Contort, I use it every morning, and sometimes at night if I dont have makeup …Read more

Jun/07/2010

I have been using this since I was 16, I am 24 now, and I have to say that I still love it as much as the first day I tried it on. I cant tolerate hot weather and going in and out of air-conditioned buildings can give me migraines, which is accompanied by nausea. Apart from that I also get tension headaches as I tie my hair up most of the time. I used to keep painkillers all the time but I …Read more

Masks - ORIGINS - Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/07/2010

I first tried this mask more than a year ago, at one of Origins' free mini facial sessions (the SA gets you seated at a little corner and proceeds to pick out suitable products for your skin and gives you a mini facial). It was the beginning of autumn at the time (in Australia) and my skin was getting from bad to worse. I was red, bumpy, dry on the surface but still oily- the acne care I was …Read more
