Received a free sample of this mascara, brush applies well.

This is the worst YSL mascara I tried, smudges like crazy, and I only wore a very light coat of this stuff.

It smudges in record time, wore a very light coat of this, was told by my friend that I have got mascara smudges only 1 hour into our 2 hour engagement. Got home, found myself with really bad panda eyes …

Nov/30/2016

Used up bottles of this. Value for money.

1. I find the bioderma(Pink) leave my skin a little tight afterwards, suspect it to be too stripping for me, this does not leave my skin feeling tight in anyway.

2. Tried other drug store brands as well as department store brands micellar water, not all are effective at removing make up, and some stings my eye too much to use for …

Nov/30/2016

The weather is getting drier and my middle aged face is rebelling by hating my normal makeup, by 3 o'clock i'd be looking all dry, patchy and ashy, I swear everything was looking nice and fresh and dare I say youthful even in the am when everything were freshly applied?

Anyhow bought this on a wimp because the foundation felt and applied very smoothly on it's own on the …

Jan/12/2016

Got a small bottle of this oil from one of the beauty boxes. Were excited to try it, until I smell it.

Smells like fish, I guess that's where the Omega 3 comes in. Goodness if I knew having Omega 3 in your skincare feels like applying fish oil to my face I wouldn't dream of it.

The product have an orangey scent to mask the fish smell, which doesn't really …

Moisturizers - Caudalie - Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Creme

Dec/27/2011

I was impressed by how light and moisturizing this cream is on my face, it was nice to use during the summer and it gives moisture without feeling greasy and sits nicely under make up.

But I'm older and needs more than just moisturizing my skin, like lifting, and wrinkle fighting and this cream doesn't do any of that, so I won't be repurchasing this again, even though I …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Desire

Oct/28/2011

I love blushes and have 6 NARS blushes in my stash, if I ever looses all of my NARS blushes this is truly the only one that I would repurchase, as the color is unique, less dupable and the results is amazing, it can make you look dainty or crazy so be careful of how much you put on. : P
But I still love it, this is one of my versatile blush color.

Eyeliner - Tarte Cosmetics - EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner

Jun/11/2011

I have trouble finding a good eyeliner that would last on me and not smudge, slip or fade through out the day, and this little gem delivers all that in an easy to apply pen.
(all mac liners, nars liners, chanel liners and bobbi brown gel liners all smudges very badly on me and makes me look like a crack head by lunch time)

I love that this brown is dark and intense, a true brown …

I decided I wanted to get this polish before I even sees it just because of it's name, but when I see the colour it's LOVE!

This is an awesome shimmery metallic purple polish, the colour is intense and rich.
Application is easy, good formulation.
With 2 coats and top coat this easily last up to 5 days with no chipping whatsoever.
