Sunday Stash Shopping #44: Sheer Slowburn and Cosmic

I didn’t think very hard how to come up with this look. I saw Cosmic and Sheer Slowburn still on my vanity table, and decided to use these 2 together. Since Sheer Slowburn is such a bright orange red, I decided to keep everything else at a minimal. Cosmic is a super shiny glittery eye… Read more »

Naked Skin Concealer

Review: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. From the name, you’d expect this concealer to look naked on your face, feels like nothing and yet covers every imperfection. Urban Decay promises just that. A full coverage concealer that feels and looks like second skin. You can build up the coverage layer by layer and… Read more »



I wanted to try something different. Perhaps a look that makes me look like someone else. A look that makes me uncomfortable. So I decided to do this. Brows shaped using a dark grey pencil liner, a graphic eye done using liquid liner, and false lashes so thick they look like worms from afar. Nothing on… Read more »

Instain Fall Spring

Review: The Balm Instain Blushes

I forgot to write about these 2 blushes. I bought them when I was still a full time working mother. It means these 2 blushes have been with me for more than a year. And you know what? I haven’t used them much at all. I bought them at Sasa and I think they were… Read more »

Urban Decay Cosmic

Review: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks and Moondust Eyeshadow

The only products I’ve tried from Urban Decay are their pencil liners (which I love), pencil shadows (which I hated) and the Naked palettes. I was totally in love with the first Naked palette … so much that I had to have the second one. When the third one came along though, I felt a… Read more »

Another Not A Review: L’Intemporel de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette

Sunday Stash Shopping #43: Smoke

I like the convenience of eye shadow sticks. Swipe, blend, go. There are 2 I really like, one from Bobbi Brown and another from Laura Mercier. Bobbi Brown’s stay longer on my lids, but the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are creamier and easier to blend. I only have Amethyst and Khaki, and am looking at… Read more »

Review: Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening

I am always game for brightening skin care. I usually rotate it with my anti ageing and I always use a serum for hydration. When it comes to brightening skin care from Estee Lauder, the name Cyber White pops into my head. It has been around for quite a few years. So I got curious… Read more »

    From Classic To Unconventional Smokey Eyes: Urban Decay Smoked Palette

    I’ve had this palette for a long time but I just never got round to posting it. I even took the photos as soon as the palette arrived, edited the photos and then they just sat in my archive. Why? Because I never really busted out the eye shadows to use. So I finally did,… Read more »

    Serendipity? No, Stupidity: My Underused MAC Palette

    I have a stupid amount of eye shadows. I take all the criticisms about my spending habits, but I did accumulate these over time. I didn’t buy them all in one day. Still, it doesn’t justify all the other purchases. I mean, I WAS happy getting these, thinking yay! I have all these different colours… Read more »
