Review - Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads

Feb 26, 2014

I usually prefer old school ingredients like AHA and BHA in my skincare as they have been used for so many years and proven to be effective time after time.
(Salicylic acid (a common BHA) is derived from willow bark and has been used since the 5th century BC, for example.)

Luckily I am not new to exfoliating pads like Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads, so I was quite glad to receive them for reviews as I figured I would be comparing them to the similar ones I tried before and provide a more informed review.

NOTD - Essie Flirt

Feb 22, 2014

I have a quick NOTD post for you today.
The weather is finally warmer and it feels like spring is just around the corner!
(I am aware of that another snow storm is coming next week, though...)

Essie Flirt is a classic Essie shade that I can recommend to everyone.
Such a gorgeous pick-me-up color that flatters nearly any skin tone!

Review - Guerlain Météorites Blanc De Perle (00)

Feb 16, 2014

This was gifted by Bellyhead of Wondegondigo blog through her amazing giveaway, and I have already mentioned a few times about how great these ballz are for both illuminating and setting makeup.

Blanc De Perle (00) was introduced in 2012 as a part of their Blanc De Perle campaign, which was a brightening/whitening line and meant for Asian market.
Unlike the usual multi-colored Météorites, Blanc De Perle is mainly "white" resembling those pretty "pearls".

Review, Swatch - Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick Black Tie

Feb 9, 2014

So my love affair with Dior Addict range continues.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick is the "edgy" one among the four Dior Addict sisters, and my choice Black Tie is a perfect example of a beautiful vampy lip color.

Nail Polish Comparison - Four Shades Of Grey

Feb 8, 2014

I am pretty sure you can acquire all fifty nail polishes with different grey hues if you want..
I only have four.
(Some might say "what, you have FOUR grey nail polishes?", but I would calmly repeat, "it's ONLY four.")

Subtle difference of colors and undertones in makeup always fascinates me, and I believe this is why we all have tens of different taupe eyeshadows and pink blushes.
Plus now we all have these evolved super-eyes that can distinguish all the color differences in the world, right? ;)

Review, Swatch - Revlon Cream Blush Charmed

Feb 5, 2014

To me, Revlon is more of a brand for foundation and lippies, but I have always liked their blushes as well for the subtle and silky formulations.
What I didn't like was the flimsy and unnecessarily bulky packagings not to mention the confusing product line-up.
So I was quite glad to see that Revlon has cleaned up their blush line recently.
Now Revlon simply offers three different kinds of blush in new packagings.
I picked up Revlon Cream Blush "Charmed", which is a new color introduced for this Spring 2014.

Review, Swatch - Dior Addict Lipstick Dior Kiss (578)

Feb 3, 2014

I am totally smitten with Dior Addict lippies now, I can't think of any better range if I am to buy more lipsticks. (Whether I should buy another lipstick or not, is not an issue here.)

It all started with Dior Addict Lipstick Dior Kiss.

Review, Swatch - Rouge Bunny Rouge Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder Piano Forte (002)

Feb 2, 2014

I needed a powder foundation for touch-ups at that time, but had to settle with Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder, which is the only powder makeup offered by Rouge Bunny Rouge.
Why I didn't buy one from other brands?
No, no, you don't understand. It had to be something from RBR since I was making a "Rouge Bunny Rouge haul".
(I thought we knew each other better than this?)

Review, Swatch - Dior Addict Gloss Dormeuse

Feb 1, 2014

I got all excited about the hot pink gloss from Dior spring 2014 collection and wanted one for sure.
Instead, I ended up with this tame milky pink.
So typical of me, but it was also logical.
Let me explain.
