Review: Clinique All About Shadow Galaxy and Eye Primer

Clinique has done it again. I’m super impressed with the eye primer. Yes, I’m telling you now, if you have oily lids, this one really helps your eye shadow stay. Look, I’m not that kind of person who beats around the bush, and say, “Why don’t you read all my ramblings and before you fall asleep, I’ll then tell you if it’s good or not”. I think I’m known for my straight talking so let’s just keep at that and not be coy, eh? Who’s with me?

This CC Cream Is A Face Primer: Clinique CC Cream Fresh Peach

My first CC cream review is from Rachel K and it works really well on my skin. It has more coverage, and to be honest, it could pass for BB cream, only with lighter texture. Now, this CC cream from Clinique is something different. It is newly launched and you might have seen it in counters already. The one I have is for colour correcting. I was sent Fresh Peach, and here is what I think.

Introducing Vanity Trove Malaysia: Let’s Discover February 2013 Box Together!

Some of you might already be familiar with Vanity Trove. They recently ventured into Malaysia, and I received their February box for review. Beauty boxes are pretty established overseas, and now, we are seeing more boxes readily available locally. Before we start the unboxing, let me just tell you that I’m a beauty box skeptic. I personally prefer to go buy my own product. While surprises can be lovely, I am also very picky, hence random surprises are usually misses for me. Let’s see how Vanity Trove February box surprised me.
