Finally, I'm able to get my hands onto this post! Although I have got quite a good amount of makeup, but if I'm being restricted to only get 3 items and to use it on a daily basis yet able to bring out something different for every look, here's what i'll choose. I will break it into 3 groups of products that I will most probably get depending on my needs (trying to put myself into shoes of my readers who might have different needs from me)
This first combination of 3 different products is for those who wish to have people's attention on their eyes, have something beneficial for their skin, has flawless skin or don't care about flaws being seen (that's me!) and has naturally pigmented lips.
a. BB cream
c. Eye Shadow Quad / Mini Palette

I believe most of my readers who followed my look of the day posts would have found out my love for elf cosmetics, and noticed the number of elf items that I own.
***WARNING: Graphics-heavy and Lengthy entry***

I've tried my best to share my reviews on all the products I own and if I missed out anything about the products, leave a comment below and I shall respond to you as soon as I can.
Some general FAQ targeted at Singapore (maybe asia too) audience:

Up till now I'm somehow still feeling a little bit of amazement and kinda unbelievable about the fact that makeup and even skincare could be really cheap yet remains Good (some were Awesome!) in terms of quality & performance!!

It's been a really long time since I posted anything up here!! =.=
I have been quite troubled in my personal life dealing with work, part-time studies and relationship... Anyway, this is gonna be a review for a batch of eyeliners which I have been using for quite a while.
That is, the Holika Holika Jewel-light Waterproof Eyeliner!!
You may wish to check out the video below for my review + live swatch & having it worn:

Happy New Year!!
Hope that all of you had a wonderful 2012 and shall definitely gonna have an even better 2013!
To kick start this year for my blog, I've decided to share a mini review for a product from my Favourite outlet >> Daiso.
As the title already indicated, these are my little thoughts about the Daiso Makeup Remover Wipes as shown in Pink packaging.
So let's just get to the point:
- 32 sheets @SGD2.00 only!!!
- 150 × 200cm is not too small and just slightly smaller than the other makeup remover wipes in market. In fact, I like it being this size as it is very travel-friendly, also fits nicely into a typical handbag.

It's time for mini review!!
I know I know, I've not finish updating my 2012 Taiwan Trip posts... and now I'm diverting to new mini reviews...
But then again, those gonna take some time which I don't have enough during normal days after work and with not so many weekends in a week..
Anyway, let's just give me a little break and get into some makeup fun!
Actually, this post, or this up-coming series of mini reviews for Essence Cosmetics Products which I own is motivated by the "5 Days of Giving" event organized by Essence SG.
Check out the video below for my mini review:

Here's a post dedicated to the bunch of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks which I have!
As the title says... its all about how the colour shows up as a swatch.
For now, I've only managed to do a skin swatch for each colour.
Once lip swatches are ready, I shall update this post again, so stay tuned~
FYI - if you love Maybelline lippies, I have another post featuring the lippies that I have under the Water Shine Diamond Series here.
1) Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick - 635 Very Cherry
This particular lipstick was actually a prize which I've won from CLEO Magazine giveaways~ I remember that in my email notification it was said to be a The Jewels lipstick, but anyway, it's a prize! What more should I say?!

Managed to prepare another article for my "swatches" series of posts where the focus is to show and share how the products look like when swatched, and you might be able to foresee how it will look like when you apply it.
As I started mini a review series with Mascaras, I have decided to start out these swatches posts with lippies and glosses!
For today, l have 3 lippies from the brand Jordana to share with you:
1) Jordana Lipstick Fiesta
- Nov 19 Mon 2012 19:59
As promised, I shall be posting up the swatches of my makeup stash before they are used-up or expired.
To make it easier for my readers to access the swatches, I have decided to post up swathes according to Brand and type. This way, if I were to purchase more items from the same brand and product type, it shall be added onto the same post.
Alright, for now I have only got 2 Lipsticks that I own from L.A. Colors and they are:
1) LIP355 Grape Crush
- Nov 11 Sun 2012 00:27
As I've had gotten quite a few of their previous range lipsticks and just kind of curious of this 2 new range, I've gotten 1 from each range to try them out.
Let's start with some pictures and swatches for:

Basically the office Makeup that I have today is rather not-in-the-norm, it's blue smokey right now!!
Firstly, let's take a look at the photo for this look.

As i've never even swatched it at all, am surprised that the colour upom application is more of a deep Burgundy-Purple-Red.
The colour resembles Revlon Lip Butter in Lolipop.
It has a pleasantly light and freshly sweet scent which i really like!
Texture seems thick and needs a bit of warmth to soften it a bit more before it slides like a cream.
The colour is intense but not as purple as i thought it would be.

It's been the longest time since the last LOTD. How are ya'll doing?
There's been lots of "over due" posts for my blog but i think it doesn't hurt for me to digress on posts that I'm working on to something fun and cheery!
I've gotten some new colour lenses from Blincon (korean brand) which I found selling in an optic shop at Basement 1 of The Central.
I've gotten 4 pairs @SGD75. It's usually 1 pair for SGD25. For the lenses to be sold in an optical shop, it has to be tested and approved by our Ministry Of Health. I feel more assured to buy colour lenses from optical shops for safety considerations.
Alright, enough of blabber now. Let's take a look at the products used to create this look!
