I got a pack of 6 the night before my wedding, for SG$122 (that's about US$100?). What can I say, it was the one time in my life to splurge.

Anyway that works out to be SG$20 per mask, which is HOLY SMOKES expensive. How did I convince myself to pay for a pack of masks for SG$122? Getting married makes people do the most out-of-character things I suppose.

Anyway, effect …

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Coralista Coral Powder Blush

Aug/15/2013

I got this as part of the "Coral My World" set, which includes this Coralista powder blush, a Cha Cha Tint, High Beam, and the coral lip gloss.

I got this on a whim, because I was envisioning myself with bright coral lips, a healthy radiant coral flush on my cheeks and smooth satin skin... on a beach holiday. Ok I don't know how that image got into my head but anyway it …

BB Cream - LANEIGE - Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++

Aug/15/2013

Update: I went to the counter to try Shade 13 and it is an almost perfect match for my NC15 skin. Disappeared when I applied it to my jaw, but I didn't apply full face so I don't know if it would work.

I am Asian with NC15 skin, large pores & blackheads on nose, and redness & freckles on my cheeks.

There's a huge marketing campaign for this in my …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - B-liv Off With Those Heads Blackheads Sebum Gel

I have to give some love to this underrated product. It's the only thing that works for my stubborn blackheads.

I used it 3 years ago or so, and my nose which looked like a strawberry, almost completely cleared up (maybe 15% remaining blackheads). It was a miracle... and my nose remained clear for the 1 year or so I was using it. I went through 2 bottles.

However, I …

I tried so much to love this, I really did.

It's cheap, supposedly removes makeup well, is gentle on skin, what's there not to love?

Unfortunately,

1) It does not remove my makeup well
After massaging it on my face for a few minutes, I use cotton wipes to wipe it off, and I need to repeat this step a 2-3 times just to get to the point where there is …

Lips - Urban Decay - Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color ALL SHADES

Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2013

I am Asian with NC15 skin and I have this in the shade Lovechild.

Contrary to all other reviews here I really hate this gloss.

Firstly it's sticky and has a really tacky feel to it. Secondly the colour just sits on my lips and emphasizes all the flaws, dryness, flakes, lines.

The shade I have (Lovechild) is this rose-fuschia pink, which is not flattering at …

I am Asian, NC15 and use shade 6 of this concealer.

I bought this the day before my wedding, as a "just in case" measure and I have been using it for 9 months and am so pleased!

I felt a huge pinch when buying it, since the tube looks tiny and it's sooo expensive. But a little really goes a LOOOONG way with this, so the product has actually a lot more utility …

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Rendezvous

I saw this on sale at my local store at around US$10 and just bought it to try out. Never thought much about it and didn't have any expectations.

After using it for around a month, I'm in love with it! I'm Asian with NC15 skin, and ruddy lips.

This transforms my lips into the most beautiful coral shade, and brightens up my entire face.

Best part? …

This product is a god send.


My mum (who has unbelievably beautiful skin for someone who's 60) advised me to try her Advanced Night Repair serum just to see if it works.


I couldn't believe my eyes the next morning. The redness on my skin was gone, there was this amazing sheen/glow on my face that i have never seen. My skin felt powdery/silky smooth.. …

Hmmmm.. I have dry skin with slight oiliness on my T-zone.


Like other reviewers say, this powder is very very good at controlling oil. But my skin doesn't produce that much oil in the first place, so unfortunately this tends to look a bit chalky/cakey on me.


On days when i know i might be out under the sun and my foundation could melt, i would put this on …
