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 »

Chanel L'Intemporel eye palette

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

The very first time I saw the promotional stock photo, my heart skipped a beat, or two. Be still, my beating heart! It’s been a long time since any press release photos did that to me. L’Intemporel de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette however, is definitely something that tugs at your heart. Even when I’ve read mixed… Read more »

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 »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #39: Bobbi Brown Cheeks

    There’s a cheek combo I’ve been really enjoying lately. It’s fun and bright, and I think it’s definitely very Spring appropriate. For me though, it’s not about Spring. I just love this bright flush on the cheeks and when paired with fuller straighter brows, gives a more youthful look. Here are the stars of the… Read more »

    Review: La Mer The Illuminating Eye Gel

    I know that brands come up with catch phrases that are very attractive. AND we should take it with a pinch of salt. Then again, ah, the woes of a new mom. I take care of a newborn (now 2 months old) full time. The baby used to wake up every 2 hours throughout 24… Read more »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #38: Undone

    There are days when I take my time to do my makeup. I’ll place the eye shadows meticulously, taking care in being clean and not overblend. I’ll use a few products on my cheeks just for that barely there flush. Then, there are days (quite often nowadays) when I’m in a hurry and apply my… Read more »
