Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Small Stipple Brush

4.0

Mar/31/2015

I bought this brush with intention of using it for cream blush after watching Emily Noel's raving reviews on YouTube. Perhaps because of her raves and the favorable reviews here, I had rather high expectations of the product. I found the brush to be a little heavy handed for cream blush- I ended up with tiny dots of blusher on my cheeks if I stippled, and blending with the brush caused my …Read more

Cleansers - Curél - Sebum Care Foaming Wash

Mar/06/2015

Years ago my skin used to be very oily and acne-prone, salicylic acid was the only active ingredient that worked to control both the oilies and the acne. However, probably due to age,my skin's now much more prone to dryness. I decided I probably need something less harsh.

Enter Curel Sebum Foaming Wash. The first cleanser without salicylic acid that's worked so far on me (I …

Jan/08/2015

My skin profile: Sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin

Pros:
+Very effective in prolonging staying power of foundation, especially in very hot and humid tropical weather (Singapore!).
I cannot begin to describe how revolutionary this is to me, because most foundations only last 4-6 hours tops on me. With this,I can skip powder and look immaculate for >10hours even …

If any of you can still spot the limited edition set for these sticks (whether it's the 6 pieces or quartet set),grab it and head to the cashier NOW. This is the one set that has made me send my urban decay naked palettes into semi-retirement,it's that crazy. I picked it up based on Temptalia's recommendation and have not looked back since.

Pros:
+Super …

Dec/23/2014

If I could give this product 4.5 stars,I would. This is the makeup remover I come back to using after straying to other brands, it's that good (except for my wallet!)

Quick pros and cons list:
+ doesn't aggravate my sensitive, acne-prone, combo skin
+ removes most makeup well (mascara, foundations, bb creams)
+ emulsifes well - better than Fancl's.
+ …

Makeup Brushes - Sigma - Travel Kit - Mr. Bunny

Nov/22/2014

I bought this set after checking out all the reviews here and on YouTube, and so far, so good! In summary:

Pros:

VERY soft brushes, especially for the price. I think it's because they're the same Sigmax hair as my beloved F82 brush.

Does not shed! Well constructed brushes of good quality.

Eye brushes very good - E40 blends well for smokey eye …

Makeup Brushes - Sigma - F82 Round Top Synthetic Kabuki

5.0

Nov/22/2014

After doing my research, I decided to get this brush instead of the Sigma F80 as the slightly rounded corners helps in reaching hard to reach corners (like the sides of the nose). Its also slightly denser so supposedly blends even better.

Long story short, I love this brush! It's super soft! As it's synthetic, it can take cream products unlike natural hair brushes. Most …

Nov/15/2014

Frankly I'm surprised at the negative reviews I'm seeing here! Until I read the comments and realize how many users are having issues due to top coat/ base coat compatibility. If you're experiencing peeling,chipping issues, DON'T DUMP YOUR ZOYA. Get a zoya top coat!

(That said, I've been using posche and seche vite top coats, which is on the list of top coats …

Nov/15/2014

Here to give this polish abit more luurrve. There's many, many unoriginal red polishes in the market (I'm looking at you,OPI!) and yet once in a while a brand manages to push out an original, beautiful red polish. This is one of those times!

A light red jelly with red glitter suspended in it, very sparkly and fiery. I also think the name is spot on, it does look like …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 - Tulip

Nov/15/2014

When it comes to the Fresh Sugar lip treatments you'll see reviews on opposite ends of the spectrum, and I feel it's totally because we all have very different expectations for a tinted lip balm. But let's cut to the chase, shall we?

Pros:
Smells heavenly! Like lemon sugar!
Soft, non-waxy, color stays on the lips.
Lovely packaging- feels heavy and …
