Review: The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion SPF50 PA+++ and IOPE Air Cushion

Today, I’d like to talk about cushion foundations. Cushion foundations are basically liquid foundation in a compact, made easy for portability and also touch ups. This all started in Korea ( as far as I know ), and they now have cushion blusher, and even cushion eye colors. Here, I have 2 Korean brands for… Read more »

Empties for Q3 2015 & Decluttering

Posting empties is like a self justification that I use the excessive things I have. For me, it feels good to be able to use them but that’s mainly skincare. Makeup wise, I give those press samples to friends and family quite regularly so that my stash is manageable. However, my level of manageable is… Read more »

Picture Review: Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine

This is a picture review. Not so much a review, but more of swatches for you guys. I don’t think there will be another picture review any time soon… It did take more time than just blasting on the keyboard, writing a proper review. LOL! The Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine is available at… Read more »

Hylamide SubQ Anti Age Advanced Serum

Review: Deciem Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum

Before I start on the product, let me first tell you that you can purchase this product online, FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING. Why do I tell you that first?

Review and Swatches: The New Dior Addict Lipsticks

I’ve been sitting on this for a while, because I really wanted to test them out, and there are 10… so it did take some time. Given, I could have just you know, swatched them and let you know what I thought of them immediately, but that just seems half arsed to me. There are… Read more »


Sunday Stash Shopping #55: Esqido Little Black Lash and Tom Ford

Oh hi there! Didn’t think I’d do another stash shopping so soon but seems like I had a productive day yesterday. Took lots of photos, so hopefully I’ll be able to write more. Today, I wanted to show you the other Esqido false lash I received. The last one was a more dramatic one (while… Read more »


On Rotation: Sunscreens Again

Wow, this series is a total fail because I just don’t update at all. I guess I have to schedule a few of these at one go, so that I have content every week. I already planned what to write – it’s just a matter of writing it. Heh. Anyway, today, I want to talk… Read more »

My fitness journey chloeash

Fitness Check In #4

It’s been about 6 months since I started working out. I had my first baby in October 2007 and got back in shape pretty fast. It’s probably because it’s only my first pregnancy, and I was also much younger. Then, 2 years later, after the second pregnancy, it was tougher to get back in shape…. Read more »


Results: Laser Treatment for Freckles with ND-YAG

Do you remember me sharing my experience getting my freckles lasered off? It was <here> in case you didn’t read it. Just to summarize though, it was not as scary as people made it sound. There wasn’t any open wounds either, so recovery time was really just waiting for the redness to go off, which… Read more »

    Review: Biotherm Biosource Cleansing Balm and Exfoliating Gelee

    I’m having a hard time churning out reviews, because I’ve been feeling uninspired. I feel bored when I have to review average or mediocre things, and while I do not guarantee reviews for products sent, I still feel responsible and obliged to do one. This review, however, is not an obligation, because I really want… Read more »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »
