Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2017

This is the worst foundation I have ever used. Save yourself the time and money. Get something else. Anything else.

What's wrong with it?

For starters, the packaging. The cap is more firmly attached to the pump nozzle than the neck of the nozzle is to the bottle, such that exerting force when opening the bottle tends to pull the entire cap off. The first time I opened …

Liquid - SUQQU - Frame Fix Liquid Foundation Lightness

Jan/01/2017

This is my new HG. Anyone who has ever read my makeup reviews would know what a great fan I am of Kanebo Lunasol's foundation, and that I've always gone back to that foundation after unsuccessfully trying to find alternatives that provide fuller coverage and better staying power.

Here ends my search. Suqqu's Frame Fix Cream foundation is just incredible. It's like …

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - the sponge

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/30/2016

Let me say that this is a really great makeup sponge. It applies my liquid foundations evenly and flawlessly such that my pores don't look as big as usual.

All girls with big pores need a sponge like this. I say a sponge like this, and not this sponge, because the Real Techniques sponge can do a very similar job for a fraction of the price.

How does this sponge …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/30/2016

I only recently discovered this and wish I'd discovered it sooner. It applies foundation, concealer and cream/liquid blush evenly and flawlessly. The shape of the sponge makes it incredibly versatile. I angle the flat side such that I can get right between my nose and my cheeks. This is one of the only applicators that do not cause foundation to pool in my nose pores.

Eye Shadow - Etude House - eyeshadows

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2016

Of all the Korean brands I've tried (which I said to say, practically every one along Myeongdong), Etude House consistently produces the best eyeshadows in terms of colour selection and staying power.

I like my eyeshadows nude and natural, so I'm all for shades of brown and beige, sometimes with hints of pink. Etude House always, ALWAYS has colours that I would pick up and …

BB Cream - KANEBO - KATE Mineral Mask BB Cream

Nov/23/2016

I think of this as a foundation rather than a BB cream. It provides medium-high coverage and really stays on even without a primer. It doesn't break me out and doesn't sink into my pores. The price is also super reasonable - think it was less than SG$30 or somewhere around that region. I've been using this for months now and I still love it! Usually, cheap products (I say cheap …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - Solid Cleanser

2.0

Nov/23/2016

This soap does clean out the BB really well and leaves it squeaky clean. The downside is that it's super drying and my hands were covered in little eczema patches after using this for 3 days. Yes, 8 moisturised, and no, it didn't get appreciably better until I stopped using this.

It's also horribly overpriced. If you have a look at the ingredients in this soap …

Primer/ Corrector - Etude House - Beauty Shot Face Blur

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/22/2016

This primer is supposed to do 3 things: illuminate, blur out pores, and hydrate.

On the first 2, it's actually pretty good. It really does have a soft focus illuminating effect, and my pores did look a little smaller.

It has no hydrating properties whatsoever though. It also made my face look and feel like an oil slick immediately after application. I braved it out …

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Step 1 Skin Equalizer - Mattifying Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2016

I'm surprised this primer has such a low score here, but when I read the reviews, I suspect it's because people here aren't using it correctly.

This primer is meant for oily skin and would probably be most applicable to those living in humid climates. It absorbs a ton of oil and keeps your face matte all day. My makeup was absolutely perfect for 10 whole hours …

Lotions/ Creams - Cetaphil - Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion For Dry Sensitive Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2016

I have been using this on my body for years now and only recently started using it on my face (together with Avene Skin Recovery cream and Vaseline petroleum jelly on alternate nights). It has absolutely saved my dry flaky cheeks. HG!!!! And at such reasonable prices! I used to pay hundreds a month on Estée Lauder/ Shiseido / Kanebo etc you get the idea. This works BETTER and is less than half …Read more
