Sunday Stash Shopping #51: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in Cold Fire

Estee Lauder will launch a new line of lip lacquers next month, called the Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion (RM98) and I thought I’d let you know about it here, together with my stash shopping post. I’ll be putting up an FOTD using it anyway, so why not. A plain review is boring anyway,… 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.

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 »

    Review: Rouge Dior Baume 760 Garden Party

    I’ve been quite the hermit. I didn’t leave the house much since late October last year… and only recently did I feel comfortable enough to leave the house to go shopping with the baby. Of course I’d go out once in a while, but no more than once a week. I mean, I’m used to… Read more »
