[REVIEW] Colourpop Crème Gel Liner

If I had to rank my preference for eyeliner types, pencil eyeliners would definitely top the list. No matter how much I practice, I still struggle a little with getting liquid and gel liners to work for me, so those are definitely not my go-to products when I’m rushing for time. Product Description Crème Gel…

How Much Is Your Lipstick Worth Per Gram? [PART I]

I’ve always been curious as to whether I’m getting the most value out of my lipsticks – I can’t tell whether some are rather pricey despite the small volume, or cheap precisely because of the volume. With this in mind, I started punching numbers to find out how much my lipsticks were worth per gram….

[SAMPLE] YSL Black Opium EDP

This is my first review on fragrances, which is honestly long overdue. Although I sometimes am very lazy about using them as a final touch, I do love trying and smelling all these fragrances because they can smell so different with just a few different ingredients. Product Description Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is…

[REVIEW] YSL Volupté Sheer Candy

I received this as a gift of sorts, and I was really eager to use this because I really like YSL’s lip products (which I personally wouldn’t have the heart to buy because it would burn a hole in my wallet). Product Description This ultra-light lip balm leaves lips feeling soft and hydrated for up…

[REVIEW] Colourpop Ultra Blotted Liquid Lipstick

Colourpop is one of those brands I’ve seen almost everyone around me gushing about for its price and quality, so when friend A asked if I wanted to buy something in order to make a big enough order for free international delivery, I leaped at the chance. After much scrolling of the website and reading…

[REVIEW] Lancôme Grandiôse Smudgeproof Mascara

If I had to pick a product that I know terribly well I’ll love, but just never got around to using it, it’d be mascara. I love how it makes eyelashes look luxuriously long, but I always find it such a hassle because I’ve not had the best experience with some drugstore ones. I got this…

[REVIEW] Maybelline BABY LIPS® CANDY WOW

Maybelline is one of those brands you probably grew up knowing because your mum introduced you to it, or has been using it herself all these years. It’s an affordable drugstore brand that definitely offers good product quality. While it’s been introducing a lot more innovative products in its offerings these days to keep up…

[REVIEW] shu uemura hard formula

I contemplated really, really long before I got this. I had heard so many good reviews about this eyebrow pencil, yet I just couldn’t find it in myself to buy this because I was so used to my Etude House pencil. However, I couldn’t help myself anymore when I went for my usual 3D brow…

[REVIEW] YSL Beauty Vernis A Levres Vinyl Cream

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) lipsticks have been the talk of the town since Jun Ji-hyun was mistakenly believed to have been wearing their lipsticks in My Love from the Star. In fact, if you type YSL into a Google search bar, one of the first results you get is ‘YSL lipstick’. Product description Cream comfort. Vinyl shine. Radical…

[REVIEW] Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick

Ever since my amazing experience with Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani collection, I was pretty determined to get my hands on their Vice lipsticks. Product description This is Vice Liquid Lipstick—a waterproof formula so life-proof, it’s not going ANYWHERE until you take it off. (Just imagine the possibilities.) What makes Vice different? Our high-tech formula provides…
