Nivea Extra Bright Make Up Clear (Micellar Water)

How long has it been since I last blogged about ANY beauty products? LOOONG time it is!

Well, today I’m back with a GOOD DEAL!!

Nivea’s Make Up Clear! If I’m not wrong, this should be their latest skincare range! However it’s not the “latest” that attract me!! It’s 13rushes cleansing brush that lure me into buying it!!!

Seriously, it doesn’t matter if you’re a light or heavy make-up person! As long as u do make-up (even if you don’t), I think this is a great kit to start your cleansing regime! For just S$18.90, Nivea has got you covered with Micellar Water + 3 in 1 Mud Cleanser !!

Best of all, every cleansing duo set comes with a FREE 13rushes Cleansing Brush (worth S$21)!! You think I’m kidding??


See! A similar brush is retailing at US$15.22 (approximately S$21.01) on 13rushes website!! Probably the best cleansing deal in town!!!


Why buy when you can get it for free!!!?? Soft brush, very densely packed fine bristle! Doesn’t feel prickly at all!! Just touching it feel so shiok!! Totally worth it!!

Besides the brush, the next thing that got me into buying this set is the micellar water makeup remover!

I’m sure girls out there are totally good friends with micellar water!! It’s quick! It’s clean! It’s great for sensitive skin! &I’m sure you know which are the few brands that already have micellar water under their umbrella.. ie: Bioderma (a more atas brand as compared) and Biore (probably launched less than a year ago?)..

So is this comparable? Let’s ask our model~


Here’s Miss Sexy.. She’s doll up using Rachel K’s BB cream and pressed powder, Canmake Blush, Revlon blue eye shadow, Marc Jacob waterproof liquid liner, Mac mascara & SK-II lipcolor.. I know.. She’s goddess!

So here I’ve covered half her face with cotton pad soaked with micellar water..


Press and hold for about 3-5 seconds, and…. ta-daaaa…!!

img_8033 img_8034

I’m impressed! Quite clean with just one wipe!

img_8036 img_8035

After a few more wipes, totally good to jump into bed!!! Yes, one cotton pad for my hand’s makeup!

3 in 1 MUD Cleanser sure got me curious! Does it works like a mask or cleanser?

So now you understand? Indeed it’s both a mask and a cleanser and of course a makeup remover!

3 Effects in 1 Use:

  1. Apply as Mud Mask Absorbs make up & unclogs pores
  2. At the touch of water, massage as make up remover Removes 10 types of makeup*
  3. Cleanses as foam with whitening effect Removes impurities from deep pores for 10x fairer, water-like looking skin
  4. *Oil, talc, colorants, silicone, sun filter, dirt, fragrance, minerals, alcohol, chemicals


Now if you wanna grab a set too (doesn’t matter for the brush or for the great deal), just head to major retailers islandwide, while stocks last!! I got mine from Changi Airport terminal 3’s Watsons!

Exfoliating is an important part of our skincare routine! it’s only when u exfoliate, dead skin cells will be gone and your skin will look brighter and absorb nutrients better! You know what, don’t be lazy!


Illamasqua Matte Veil is the matte version of Hydra veil. I had used hyrda veil before and find it not too bad.. For matte lover, I’m sure you’ll love this!

An oil control primer, Matte Veil preps the skin to create the perfect matte base for make-up application. It’s mattifying cream-gel formula absorbs excess oil whilst retaining the skin`s natural moisture levels, providing a silky, soft finish. Enhancing make-up longevity, Matte Veil also controls shine throughout the day and into the evening, keeping skin feeling healthy and balanced..


Last but not least, one of my favourite makeup remover!

Hydrabio H2O is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Thus, Hydrabio H2O guarantees unrivalled tolerance and comfort for optimum make-up removing efficacy. Moreover, its Aquagenium® exclusive biological patent retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturising capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced.

IMG_0883 IMG_0884

If you ask me rating, I will probably rate this product 3.75/5…

My loyal readers will know that I am not a cleansing sheet person. I always feel that they don’t do a good job and made my skin prickly~! (Yet I’m always keen to try cleansing sheet… -__- )


But for this cleansing tissue, it did not leave behind any prickly feeling on my skin. In fact I do feel that my skin are more moisturized as compare to other cleansing sheets that I had used before.. That’s a plus point!!


However, after cleaning half my face, the sheet doesn’t look very dirty. That makes me ponder.. Is my face really clean?? That’s a minus point~ 😦 Because I will still need to do a double cleanse after that, then it serve no purpose..


If you’re a cleansing sheet person, do give it try! It’s a pretty moisturizing cleansing sheet..

Where to Purchase: Idoori or Qoo10

Price: $8.90 on Idoori & $9.90 on Qoo10 (can consider buying from Qoo10 since you can utilized cart discount when combine with other purchase)

My Loots from Preloot!!

After making my first purchase, I thought this was a pretty good concept for user to explore more local brands. Good local brands! Through Preloot, I actually get to know more local brands! I actually seen some brands before but wasn’t aware that they’re local brands – ie: Gummi! I thought they were from US or Europe.. (my gosh! How sua-ku!) & Bodhi too!!

Well…here’s my SECOND BOX (& THIRD BOX) to share.. Hope you like them too!

IMG_6538 GUMMI Designer Nail Wraps


Uniquely designed in Singapore, GUMMÍ nail wraps are fashion forward, effortless and high-quality.

I ever tried nail films before and I thought they sucks. They gets peeled of easily, last not even more than 2 days. -___-

I’m hoping this will last long because I’m gonna wear this for my upcoming trip!! I shall share more swatch on my instagram!! Stay tune!



A place where you can find solution to your skin problem!

Although I don’t like ginger but I like the scent of Ginger Turmeric Soap!! It smells really energizing! LOL..

visited their website and found that they not only have soap, they have scrubs and mask too!! Do check them out HERE too!!



Correct! this is my second pack of body scrubs from Basic Theory! I prefer this than the coffee one redeem earlier! the mild soothing lavender scent helps ease my mood and makes me feels relax after a day of hard work!!



OH!! This is GOOD! I never thought local brand can be this good – especially the night cream!! But to be exact, this is not really a local brand though. Flower2Grass2 originated from Hong Kong and is new in Singapore! Best part, it’s paraben-, colorant- and sulphate-free!! Pssst~ Only available on Preloot – that’s exclusive!


The night cream good for combination skin user (yes! finally something made for me!!)! Rose Geranium oil calms oily or irritated skin, such as eczema, acne & rashes. Skin appears radiant as a result. Hazelnut oil penetrates the outer layer of skin easily, leaving your skin silky smooth without any feeling of oiliness. Lavender oil is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-depressive characteristics; also rejuvenating skin by softening and lightening, an excellent solution to acne scars.


Happy with my 2nd loot bag, I packed my 3rd bag!!

IMG_6603 Basic Theory



Yes, Basic theory again.. LOL! They have really good scrubs so thought of giving their skin care a try…



The #nofilter Makeup Remover gently but thoroughly removes all traces of makeup without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Its blend of moisturizing coconut oil, clarifying castor oil, gentle avocado oil and relaxing lavender essential oil seriously nourishes your skin while cleansing and will have you snapping #nofilter selfies in no time! Engineered for every party girl – super effective on waterproof mascara and eyeliner! Strengthens and conditions eyelashes and eyebrows over time.


Not the best makeup remover I had used but glad I had gave it a try..



The classic calming scent of lavender will soothe your body and soul. This handmade soap contains tiny lavender flowers and natural essential oils, which provides soft and gentle care for your skin.

Rachel KIMG_6610I guess I do not need to intro this again! Everyone knows Rachel K! I redeem a lighter tone this time and it suits me!

Guess, I will be keeping a lookout on preloot to try more local brands!


L’egere Perfect Cleansing Oil Stick

Going home is not lonely anymore! I’m so happy that my mama has been transfer to a new branch – we’re close (at work) again!

So last week while waiting for mama to end work, I went to do some shopping at BHG.. I have no plan to buy anything, purely window shopping, until I saw this interesting stick!

Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick
Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick
– Lady Gaga (Love Games)

NO!! This is not a disco stick! This is a Cleansing Oil Stick!

What’s NEW? This is new – OIL in a stick! I had some makeup (from all the sampling) on the back of my hand hence I took the sample stick and try it.. I was pretty amazing! It wiped out all the make up on my hand!! CLEAN!

Who can resist such cute convenient makeup remover!!? It’s so easy to bring around and need not worry about leaking/spilling in your makeup pouch or bag! NO MESS!

Was pretty surprise to see this little cap when I open up the stick.. They really protect it well ya!?

So now I’m home, let me show you the power of this cleansing stick!


What’s on my hand: Waterproof mascara, gel eyeliner, glittery eye shadow, bb cream and lipstick!

(music) As the stick goes round and round, round and round, round and round..

All the makeup sort of dissolve and blends together.. Was pretty gross but I think it works quite well.. Even removed my gel eyeliner without a trace! Although some glitter can still be seen but, I think it did better than what I expected!!

The only extra step that we need to do here is, clean the stick after every use..


Since it work so well on my hand why not try it on my face since it’s time for me to remove my makeup too!

(music) As the stick goes round and round, round and round, round and round..

Hmm.. It turn out not as comfortable as when I used it on my hand.. Area like nose, eye need extra care.. It’s easy on forehead, cheek and chin and these area were pretty clean..

IMG_2702 IMG_2704 IMG_2703 IMG_2701IMG_2699IMG_2705


For my eyes, they didn’t quite turn out clean the first time.. Eyeliners are still visible, almost 75% of my mascara did not goes off.. maybe if the stick comes in a two-way concept will be better? One side pointy and the other side as it is, then I can use the pointy side for more precise cleaning.. Or maybe I should just just a eye-makeup remover first before attempting to use this??

Well I guess I did not try hard enough.. I’m not giving up and tried it again the next day but without mascara this time.. Well….

IMG_2706 IMG_2708


It turns out much better than the day before. Glad to see that 80% of my eyeliner was removed.. When I’m done, I used a piece of tissue to wipe away the residue. It doesn’t really feel clean honestly..I don’t see much bb cream stain on my tissue though..

(Above picture on the right shows u the amount of oil stick depleted after using for 2 times..)

Overall, I would rate this only 6 out of 10.. More for the convenience than the effectiveness. Not that it’s not effective but areas like nose & eyes are pretty challenging to get the makeup removed.. It doesn’t matter if you do light or heavy makeup because you will still need to remove makeup around this area right?!

Plus I don’t like the oily dirty feeling it leaves on my face while removing my make up.. I would rather is a liquid cleansing oil..

So that’s reason for this rating! If you would like to get your hands on this too, head down to your nearest BHG (ALT) to check it out..


My stash of… Makeup Remover!


Yes.. It’s time again to share some loveee with you! I realize I’ve been stocking up lots of makeup remover lately!!! Not because they’re good/bad but most of the time it’s because of SALE!

So which of those I’ve been using are worth mentioning?? Read on to find out…

If you’re a loyal reader, I’m sure you’re aware that I had recently received a Biore Micellar Cleansing Water for review (you can read from HERE).. So amazed with the result, I decided to pull out ALL my “Micellar” remover to do a comparison! Spoiler: I’m really mind blown with the result of Biore Micellar Cleansing Water!!

So before I start removing my makeup, I must have some makeup on right?? Thanks to my left hand, she decided to sacrifices herself for this test!!



In this makeup, I’ve used La-Roche Posay BB cream, Benefit mascara, K-Palette liquidliner, NYX blush stick Shiseido lip color and Misline compact powder.. Eyeliner is 100% waterproof/smudgeproof!!


This is not micellar related but this is my so-call current makeup remover – Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover… Why is it “so-call”? Because this is the makeup remover which I will constantly buy when it runs low. IMO, it’s good as it can remove waterproof mascara without much effort and I chop chop remove my makeup quickly while in shower..


See it’s not “water” form but more like gel…

Side note: There no need to use cotton pad when using this remover. Now this is just for show and to keep the consistency of the test as close as possible..

Usually, I will just pump 2 times on my hand and start massage gently onto my skin to remove makeup.


I placed the cotton pad on half of the “face” for about 30 sec (or so, didn’t really count the time)..

Can you guess the result??…..






jiang-jiang~ not bad right!? Just one wipe and 80% (of half the face) makeup gone…


2-3 more wipe and I’m clean!!! Like I said, proper usage of this remover is to apply directly onto skin and gently massage to remove makeup. That way, it can be result will be more effective.

How many star will I rate this? 4 stars!!

Will I buy it again? Yes! It very convenient to use and, again, it’s effective!! Most importantly, it’s pretty friendly to my pocket.. I think it’s about S$25+/- for 230ml (let me go check out the price and update you again!!!)

Next in the list….


Inseta H2O Tonic Lotion – Makeup Removing Lotion! This is a delicate cleansing lotion for eyes, lips and face. Best of all, No rinse required!! Oh and oh and!! It’s suitable for sensitive skin too

There isn’t much information found online but what I can share with you is that, this is a product of Italy (Made in Italy) and so far, I haven’t seen it in Singapore. Then where did I bought it? From Hong Kong, a retail shop call Colourmix (feels like SaSa/Beauty Language)!! 坐过 Cathay Airline的卸妆水哦~

Actually I didn’t planned/expect to buy this but the staff came to me while I was looking at Bioderma makeup remover. She started to promoting Inseta saying that the price is just a fraction of what I’m holding and quality is comparable too! Well, looking the price, I think I have nothing to lose too (I’m already in HK, there no need to save what I’ve already prepared to spending!)


So with appropriate amount of it, I placed it on the other half of my “face”..






another 30 sec has passed..

and 1 swipe~


Wow… this is pretty clean!!


With the 2nd swipe, waterproof makeup is gone!

Indeed it’s comparable with Bioderma but sadly i can’t find it in Singapore.. If your ever go to Hong Kong and interested to try it, drop by Colourmix and grab yours at HKD98 (500ml; about S$16+/-)..!

How many star will I rate this? 4 stars too!!

Will I buy it again? I really don’t know! I like it that it’s suitable for sensitive skin, the convenience of “no-rinse” and doesn’t make my skin feels dry! Even if I want to buy, I think I will need to save some air fare first.. =X

Next up *excited* is my new favourite!!


Yes, Biore Micellar Cleansing Water!! Post link provided earlier..


Same steps, pump appropriate amount onto the cotton pad and hold for 30 sec +/-…


If you have followed me on Instagram, you should have seen the result tooo…..



Makeup all being lifted up!! I’m amazed! I mean.. When I try it on my face previously, I thought it was pretty “wow” already because I didn’t even hold for 30 sec and makeup were removed.. BUT NOW YOU SEEE!! My makeup literally being lifted up and goneeeee!!!

2 wipe is almost clean!!

How many star will I rate this? 5 stars of course!! It’s very rare a makeup remover can excite me sooo much!!

Will I buy it again? Definitely a YES! In fact I might just replace the Aqua Jelly to this as my regular remover!! Price? S$18.90 for 300ml (if I do a lil math, for 500ml it will cost about S$31.50) Hmm double the price of Inseta but definitely cheaper than Bioderma.. Well, at least they had made it look affordable!

“Wah, only $18.90! That’s less than $20!” mentality.. LOL..!

Finally at the last (but not least) product… Biodema Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution!


This is my most expensive makeup remover that I have ever purchased. It was about S$40+ when this 500ml first launch in Singapore! Madness! If you really like this yet have a tight budget, go find out who’s going Hong Kong and ask them to help you get a few back! It’s much cheaper buying from Hong Kong (I’ll share the price with you at the end of the post..)!


By now i need not tell you what I’m doing here ya? 😀 Pour appropriate amount and hold for 30 secs………


Wanna guess the result?







Indeed you get what you pay for! Despite the high price, it can effectively remove my makeup without much effort and (importantly) doesn’t cost and dryness nor prickly sensation on my skin… Woohoo!  However, if you have sharp eyes I’m sure u can see that the mascara (or eyeliner, idk) isn’t really cleaned up on my hand. There’s still a lil dot on my hand but again just one more wipe and I’m all cleaned and good!! (oh yeahhh)

How many star will I rate this? 4.5 stars! 0.5 was deducted for the cost!! >_<

Will I buy it again? YES but maybe the 100ml for travelling use..! As promise, here’s the price for the different size..

  • 100ml at S$15.90 (promo: S$9.90)
  • 250ml at S$29.90 (promo: S$23.90)
  • 500ml at S$46.00 (promo: S$39.90)

And if you’re buying from Hong Kong, Colourmix is selling 500ml pack at HKD135 (approximately S$22) – Almost half price~ kaoz!


So to summarized it all, here’s my favourite makeup remover from left (being most love) to right (being the least love)..

How sad to see my once sooo loved Aqua Jelly become last in the list!! :X BTW, I wanna emphasize I did NOT draw the makeup on the cotton pad for Biore Micellar Cleansing Water ok pls~!! In case anyone thought it was being draw on.. -___-

I will be back to update this post again when I have more to share!! Stay tune!!

Update on 1 Jun 2015: Nearly forgot to update this post with my makeup remover update!! Probably few months back, I bought Legere’s cleansing oil stick! Like what the name suggest, it’s a oil stick to remove makeup!


I thought it was pretty interesting and had effectively remove my makeup from the back of my hand (from all those sampling) then! IMG_2424

Well, bringing it home and doing it on my face is a different story.. I don’t really like the process of using this to remove my makeup.. Too many “corners” can’t be clean thoroughly.. 😦 You can check out my post here for more details..

Until then~! C’ya~

Bioré Micellar Cleansing Water

I seldom have confident using cleansing water to remove makeup. Why? Because most of them cause irritation to my eyes when get in contact.. 😦 I’m a lazy person and I often look for makeup remover that is ALL IN ONE! Must be able to remove not only bb cream/foundation but also (waterproof) eye makeup! Another thing which isn’t very important but good to have is to be rinse-free for my SUPER lazy days – maybe I should say, ultra tired days!

Recently, I’m being introduced to Bioré’s new product – Micellar Cleansing Water!!


I’ve been using Bioré makeup remover since N years ago! The first Bioré remover I tried was the Cleansing Oil (purple lil pump bottle) then later they came up with this Hydra-Clear makeup remover which made mi fall in love with it immediately! Until recent years, they launch the new Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover – Man! That’s an awesome product! Since then, I stick to it like a loyal fan (of course occasionally when I get bored, I will try other brands too)..!

bio_clensing_perfectoil_00_img_l  Biore Hydra-Clear Makeup Remover bio_clensing_aqua_jelly_00_img_l

Now, I’m excited to try the LATEST creation by Bioré – Micellar Cleansing Water!!

Made with Natural Mineral Water from the Japanese Alps enhanced with Watery Micellar Technology. This lightweight and refreshinging wipe-off makeup remover lifts off makeup and dirt effectively from pres. Skin feels clean and refreshed with no sticky or oily after feel.

IMG_6611 IMG_6616


This makeup remover is totally cost effective, very friendly to my pocket too – S$18.90 for 300ml!! ($_$) Hahaha! Anyway, What’s so good about it?

IMG_6700Yes!! Correct!! It’s non-oily, non-rinse, non-comedogenic, alcohol-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free!!!

It contains:

  • Watery Micellar Technology that efectively dissolves and lifts of all makeup including mascara and eyeliner
  • Natural Mineral Water from the Northern Japanese Alps for a gentle and soothing formula
  • Enriched Collagen and White Tea Extract for brighter, softer and suppler skin
  • Anti-bacterial formula helps prevent pimples and breakouts, and minimises pores for a clearer and more refined complexion

And you know what? It’s suitable for ALL skin type! Yes, all includes SENSITIVE! ❤


Ok, after a day at work, here’s my half melted makeup (pardon the messy me!!)! Let try and see how well it can remove my makeup!!

(Eye: Solone / Blush: Canmake / Lip: VDL / Foundation: SKII)IMG_6627



Take a piece of cotton pad and push the pump 2 (or 3) times.. Basically you just have to wipe wipe wipe~


For eye makeup remover, press over eye and hold for 5 seconds and gently wipe it off..


See.. it’s that easy!



I used about one cotton pad for half of my big face & to show you the soaked cotton pad really “absorbed” all my makeup, I took a clean one and place it side by side! Seee.. I know.. *gross* LOL!


In total, I used 3 cotton pad to removed my makeup – actually 4 cotton pad to be exact but the last cotton pad was rather clean so.. My face is cleaned already!



What I think?? Awesome!! No oily/sticky feeling and no skin irritation/outbreak on my face! I feel safe to even pat on my toner/moisturize and jump onto my bed!! Tell me what’s better than both cost & result effective!!

You wanna try it tooo?? It’s now available at all pharmacies, hypermarkets and supermarkets, and major departmental stores!

StyleXSanta Box

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Today I’m gonna share with you my December Little Black Beauty Box – StyleXSanta Box!! But before that, pls note that LBBB subscription has been amended.. It’s no longer at $19.90 (or was it $19.99?). The new price is S$21.90.

Initially I thought it was because of the One Year Anniversary and Christmas season that’s why the box got more expensive.. You know more expensive some how relates to more premium products or something special for that box? Although the box that I had subscribed to so far (since the price increase) hasn’t disappoint me but I got it all wrong. LOLX! This price increase is not due to festive seasons. It’s permanent.

起价了啦! T_T

So with the price increase am I gonna still subscribe to LBBB? YESSS, of course!! It’s juz a $2 increase and I have yet to open up a box with disappointment! The quality is still there. The quantity too! (It’s still sad that good things no longer comes cheap!! Below $20 and more than $20 makes a big diff leh~ although its juz $2! Consumer mindset!!)

So what have I got myself this CHRISTMAS!??


I was just praising LBBB and this is what I got for my StyleXSanta box?!??! *heartache*

The Unprecedented Sleep Study: Estée Lauder commissioned a major independent sleep study in collaboration with University Hospitals Case Medical Center—a world-renowned center of excellence in dermatological research.

The Surprising Results: Lack of sleep can not only accelerate premature signs of skin aging, but affects skin’s natural repair processes. Clinical data shows that poor quality sleep is associated with:

  • Acceleration of fine lines.
  • Increased vulnerability to dryness and dehydration.
  • Uneven skintone.

I think i not only have to sleep more from now onwards, I gotta use this precious baby before I jump onto my bed too!


Now for some eye opener!! M.A.C. Zoom Lash! Major drama. Lasts all day. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels light, supple. Ultra-sculpted brush has three-sided fibres to embrace and separate each lash, hugging every curve. Coats in one stroke from root to tip. No smudging.


Very packed bristle! I can already feel my lash is gonna be very dramatic!

Below are my lashes without any mascara!



I kinda like my lashes at times.. geez! >_< They’re very .. erm.. dense? LOL

So after applying the Zoom Lash below is how it looks like!



It’s more defined and looks darker!


Not sure if it’s my imagination, it seems to have lengthened my lash a little!


So the above pic with my eyes closed is a comparison for you to see “before/after” effect. Can you tell which has mascara on?

Ans: My left eye (which is the eye on the right that you’re looking at now). Kinda obvious~


Another thing.. this mascara doesn’t feel very clumpy and its easy to achieve the volumized look. Use a lash curler before applying mascara so that your lashes will stay curled for a longer time..

I wore this mascara since noon till midnight (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) and it shows no sign of smudging! No gothic look at all~ hahah! Waterproof? OF COURSE!! Removing is not hard at all tooooo….

S$29 (approximately) for a mascara like this? WHY NOT!!


Time to remove your makeup after party? Try this M.A.C. Pro Eye Makeup Remover!

A mega-effective remover that lifts off every look – from delicate to dramatic – without smudges, tears or aggression. Pro-quality, yet decidedly gentle; calms, hydrates and soothes skin with cucumber extract. Makeup can be immediately reapplied. A favourite of busy models. I forgot that I have this in my stash thus didn’t use it to remove my zoom lash when I got home! Darn! I will review this again (if I remember) when I start using it!

Done with the eye? Now let’s check out something for our lips!!

Lip Gloss from Bobby Brown! YOU KNOW WHAT, I am allergic to BB’s product! T_T oh man!! I will get rashes if I apply anything on my skin. My lips will feel mild numbness when I apply lip color on my lips.. The more you love the more you can’t get to use it.. *sobs* (I’m not trying to scare you.. oops!)

This color seems a bit shimmerish neutral/natural brown color. I thought it will make my lips look dark.. but…….


It really look very natural on my lips!

*I’m risking my “life” to put this on just to show you the result okay!!* hee.. >_<



You can see my chapped lips looks fine after I applied the lip gloss! Totally good cover up! WAHAHAHAHA… too bad I’m allergic to BB! aww.. Don’t reminds me of that…

This cream is really solid cream.. hahaha… It’s not those light weight runny kinda moisturizer.. It’s more like Hazeline Snow cream kinda texture but better of course! Even it’s price is…. as HIGH-END as the product itself.. make a guess?? Or perhaps you already know.. 1oz for $155! 16.5oz for *drumroll* $1900!!

-faint- I must appreciate this 0.11oz I’ve got here..


Next up is something I’ve been wanting to try. DKNY Be Delicious Skin, I call it “green apple”! One of my friend been using this since I don’t know went…

The scent is not as sour as green apple please! It’s a sophisticated blend of apples, exotic flowers and woods creates a fresh, juicy scent that can only be called delicious.

Now, save the best for last??? HAHAHA! Now, finally something for my beau to share!!
