Monthend Randomness: Let’s Talk About Love

I had a rant on blogging and my addiction to beauty stuff a while back <you can read it here if you’re curious> and I brought up the possibility of not blogging anymore. Friends were encouraging me to continue blogging, but maybe talk about something other than beauty related. I thought that was a really… Read more »

Pencils to throw and used up skin care

Empties: Devoured and Dumped

There is no way to make empties post interesting. However, I still want to document what I used up. I have used up skincare as usual, and threw out old makeup. I threw out mostly old pencils, both eye pencils and lip pencils. Dude, I had eye infections so regularly, I totally freaked out. Gone… Read more »

Clinique quickliner for eyes

Review: Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense in Intense Chocolate is Intensely Annoying

When it comes to eye pencils, I like mine to be retractable. Takes the sharpening out of the equation. I also like my liners to be smudge proof and humidity proof. I have a lot of black liners, so I thought I’d go for brown. I swatched this brown and I immediately fell in love.  … Read more »


Sunday Stash Shopping #50: By Terry Ombre Blackstar Misty Rock

Instead of doing a review on this cream shadow in a stick, the By Terry Misty Rock, I thought I’d just use it for this stash shopping post. It took me a while to understand this product. There is a much longer setting time compared to Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown. You can play around… Read more »

On Rotation: Sunscreens

Have I mentioned before that I don’t go out of the house without sunscreen on my face at least? Have I also mentioned before that I use sunscreen even when it’s cloudy or there’s thunderstorm? I also apply sunscreen on my children, hoping it will instill a habit in them. Currently, I have 4 sunscreens… Read more »


Importing Cosmetics To Malaysia: Your Risk

I thought I want to share with you my recent experience with purchasing cosmetics online. The buying experience was great, but things went downhill as the package reached Malaysian shores. Let me just tell you that I’ve been purchasing cosmetics online, from makeup to skincare, and I’ve never had any problems getting them delivered to… Read more »

Melvita Argan Oil

Review: Melvita Argan+ Face Oil

I never had much luck with face oils. I tried just a couple, and then I gave up. I really didn’t want to try again just in case I break out unnecessarily. I can live without face oils, but I can’t live with breakouts, thank you very much. I first heard of argan oil from a… Read more »

  • Yadah Sun Block

    Review: Yadah Oh My Sunblock SPF35 PA++

    Who hasn’t heard this before? “Please remember to apply your sunscreen every day, even when it’s cloudy outside.” When I was in my teens, my mom would nag me, every single day. I was mostly frustrated because I didn’t understand why. I’d go “UGH!! yadah yadah yadah, enough already!” When I was studying in Australia,… Read more »

There are pinks, corals, oranges, browns, berries, beiges… I hope we’ll all be doing different colours so you can see different versions. I wanted to do something more editorial with berries and deep… Read more »

    Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquers

    Long lasting liquid lipstick with high gloss formula? I’m in! The Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquers are permanent, so I can take my time collecting them. I guess that already says I really really like them?

    Review: Bobbi Brown Twilight Pink Lip And Eye Palette

    Do you still get this palette? There’s no Bobbi Brown counter where I live, so I can’t check in store. This is sent to me as a gift a couple of months ago, and I’d like to let you see the swatches anyway, because most of the shades are permanent.

    Project Make A Dent #1

    So I’m going to join fellow Lipstick Bandit Monika of Rocaille Writes in Project Make A Dent. I also saw Joyce of Bronzer Bunny writing about it, and thought why not. Basically, I will select a few products where I’ll be making concerted effort to use up, or in this case, make a dent. It all started at Lola’s… Read more »
