Apply Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream For Soft Non-Oily Hands

My hands have been good to me. They didn’t start feeling dry until recently, and I’m already in my mid-30s. I might have to thank my sometimes sweaty hands, but ageing is inevitable. My hands feel especially dry when I’m in the office, thanks and no thanks to the air conditioning. I used to swear by L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream because it was rich enough to keep my hands comfortable, and it still does. However, Clarins gave me a very different experience and meaning to hand creams.

Midmonth Tastebuds: Bruschetta!

It’s been a while since I talked about food. Also, I’ve been a little bored talking about makeup and skincare. Let’s talk about lovely noms. I loooooove bruschetta. I love it on warm garlic toasted sliced baguette, or even on grilled chicken. It’s the mixture of fresh tomatoes, onions and garlic all tossed together with the beautiful aroma of herbs. It is healthy, easy to throw together, something I think everyone must try! I used to pay heaps to eat these in restaurants, but no more. I can’t believe I paid that price for something I can put together in less than 10 minutes.

Consider Me Unimpressed: Chanel Les Ombre Eye Makeup No.33 in Prelude

I haven’t written about Chanel’s eye quads before and it’s not coincidental. My first purchase was the Quartuor Boutons de Chanel and that one was not only unimpressive, it was disappointing. Colours were sheer and powdery, and translates to nothing on my lids. I decided not to be so skeptical and gave Chanel eye quads another go. The rest of the world get the baked version while the US gets (from what I’ve read) the more pigmented version. Go figure.

NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base: Buy It. End Of Review.

Do eye shadows crease on your eye lids? Do you find it difficult to make your eye shadows last? Do you use primers before your eye shadow application? I admit I’m sometimes lazy when it comes to applying eye primers. I’ve only used 3 eye primers before. There’s a Benefit one which was a pain to pump, and it turned bad in less than a year. So bleh. Then, there’s the Urban Decay Primer Potion which everybody swears by. I like the original version and I think the original one performs best. And then, there’s this: NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. I never knew what the fuss was about until I tried it.
