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 »

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.

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

    My Fitness Journey: To Start

    Every journey has a destination. In every action, there is intention. For something so personal like health and fitness, the intention must come from yourself. No one else can do it for you. The desire must be there so that you can stick with it when the going gets tough. You see, for me, I’ve… Read more »

    Review: Dior Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation and Backstage Blender

    I’ve been using the Diorskin Star Studio Makeup Spectacular Brightening Weightless Perfection SPF30 PA++ (RM170) whenever I applied makeup for the past couple of months. That’s not a lot, since I haven’t been wearing much makeup, but whenever I do, I’d reach for this. First and foremost, I was testing this foundation, and after a… Read more »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #36: My NYE Look

    Review: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Cocoa Mirage

    Tom Ford. Just that name associates with luxury. Think beautiful packaging and the price to match. I wanted to try at least one of his eye quads, and after much thought, I decided to go for something timeless and without too much bling. Cocoa Mirage seems to fit the bill and from swatches online, it… Read more »

    Review: Burberry Lip Velvets Pink Azalea and Bright Poppy

    These are my first Lip Velvets by Burberry. Lip Velvets are supposed to be matte-ish, leaving a velvety finish to the lips (hence the name). I noticed that the Lip Covers have a shinier packaging while the packaging of these are matte. I picked up Pink Azalea and Bright Poppy, the 2 shades I’ve been… Read more »
