I have a collection of Jo Malone fragrances (English Pear, Orange Blossom, Nectarine Blossom, Wild Bluebell, Tuberose Angelica) and I must say Peony and Blush Suede is my HANDS DOWN favourite!!

According to Fragrantica, the top note is red apple; middle notes are peony, jasmine, carnation and rose; base note is suede. It smells very pretty and feminine, classy even (my brother and …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Mehr

I LOVE this lipstick! I just bought it today on a whim. I have an affinity to MAC lipsticks and this must be my nth tube! On my lips, this looks like a dusty rose. (for reference, I'm NC25-30, black hair, Asian). It's a matte finish but I don't find it as drying at all. This will be a staple in my daily makeup bag and will buy again!

WOW... this is one of my first purchases of Sephora makeup! And I am beyond impressed.

I've been and still am obsessed with lip stains (already bought KVD's Berlin, Outlaw, and Lolita plus Lime Crime's red velvet, wicked, and suede)... So, when I came across the raves here, I quickly tried the tester when i was in Sephora... BAM! I fell in-love with the 01 shade …

Cleansers - DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil

I can't live without this product!! Better than shu uemura's famous cleansing oil...

I use this at night time, instead of drying foaming wash. Keeps my skin supple and this removes even the toughest, most waterproof makeup!

As a result, my skin has never been clearer.

Purchased this for about 29 cdn from amazon.ca. Will repurchase!

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - PanOxyl 10% Foaming Face Wash

I recently suffered an allergic reaction to cosmetics.. This was a lifesaver for me! I had cystic acne on both my cheeks and in a week or two my skin cleared up! Of course, I'd follow it up with 10% bp cream. My skin is still far from perfect... but this is my HG!

Bought this from Walgreens, Bellingham for $10. Highly recommended! Planning to stock up next time I'm in the …

Concealers - CLARINS - Instant Concealer

Too expensive for what it's worth. Shades are also limited -comes only in 3 shades in Sears Canada...I'm NC25-NC30 & the medium (02) shade works for me. I use it for my under eyes. I noticed just recently that it creases.

Bought this when Clarins had a free gift promo going on. I'm such a sucker for freebies. lol

PS MUFE's Full Cover is still my HG!

This is my current signature scent.

Smells sexy & divine. Long wearing as well. A gourmand, grown-up fragrance. Love it!

If you don't want to shell out the $$$ for a full sized bottle, it comes in a $30 rollerball now! Handy for those date nights!

Mascara - Isehan - Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl and Super Waterproof Mascara

HG status! Love this mascara. Granted its hard to remove (that's why I bought the brand's mascara remover as well).

Defines and naturally lengthens my lashes, holds the curl, does not smudge!

It's more expensive in North America but it's a steal in Japan for 900 yen ( 9 usd).. You can order it online for double the price.

Highly recommended.

HG!!

This is for the peach choux... Never believed in face primers till I tried this! It made my skin glow -radiant, under the Missha perfect cover bb cream. 6 people and counting already complimented me on my skin! A little goes a long way...

Won't recommend it to darker skin though!

A serious contender to my HG mascara (currently Maybelline's Colossal)...

Learned about this from youtube guru -Xteener's IG. She raved about the waterproof version. Then my sister highly recommended it. I decided to give it a try!

Love L'Oreal's mascara packaging. Classy gold/silver and easy to find without being obnoxiously yellow or pink. :) I bought …
