Collagen Cleansing Sheet

This has 50 sheets for $2. I couldn’t ask for more. The wipes are good size. It’s normal size; It’s wet; overall a good makeup remover. Plus 50 sheets, it’s a lot. Strangely I don’t use it as much as the 20s or 30s. I really just use one a day. Then again, most of the time, I will wash my face after so it wasn’t such a big deal.
It said that this unwoven cloth contains enough cleansing liquid to easily remove makeup. Contains collagen to improve skin moisture.
It is a good face makeup remover. However it doesn’t take off waterproof mascara. So I guess that’s why you can get it cheap. But as a face makeup remover, it does it job really well. I guess cause its wet so it just wipe off easily. Quite a happy purchase with this.

I always wanted a roll on perfume. Then of all the perfume I got the JB one. I mean I am kind of ashamed to own this, but that’s just me. Thankfully, the perfume smell kind of nice. It’s sweet and fruity. It’s easy to wear any day of the week. Plus it’s roll on so it’s easy to apply in the public. Wouldn’t have buy it even though it smells okay, but wouldn’t mind having it. But I’ll be crossing my fingers and hope no one will ask me what perfume I’m wearing whenever I wore this. I’m horrible.

Chapstick

lip ice
Just a basic lip balm. Colorless with a hint of lemon.

Fruit crushers fruitomic punch flavor smells wonderful. Despite the color on the tube, it’s still a colorless balm. It’s really expensive though – $10.

I like that this sample is so small. It’s minty, clear but really waxy.

Chap ice kiwi lime lip balm smells exactly like lime. I really the packaging. You have to push from the bottom to get the product out. I bought this for HK4.5 at SASA, and they have other flavors. It’s a nice lip balm to have, but sometimes the lime can be a bit too overpowering. I like it for winter months, not so much in the summer.

The original Chapstick! It was only $2 at Watsons, cheaper than any other lip balm. There were the Union Jack print and this which I decided to get. Surely nothing beat the original. Come to think of it, I don’t think there was a difference except for the SPF. And prettier packaging if you’re into that.
So the Chapstick itself is very waxy. I don’t like how when I first open it, it just concave in. So I kind of only applied through the rim. Eventually it even out, and I don’t find it very moisturizing at all. Not a fan. Therefore, I am only using this as a base for moisturizing lipstick as I don’t want to waste it. But ya, I guess that’s why it’s only $2?

My 15 Minute Routine

Future me will probably want recollection on how now me do my makeup for Uni on most days. Especially for 8.30 class, as I am just not a morning person. So, after snoozing the alarm button for the eleventh time, I panic and wake up. I then brush my teeth and get into the shower.
20131126-222225.jpg
So in my own room, the first thing I do is to put toner like the one from Hada Labo with a cotton pad. I like it and it doesn’t break me up, so that’s good. I pat my face hoping it will dry faster. Then I use a moisturizer with SPF. I won’t use serum or sunscreen cause I ain’t got the time. Oilum Hydro-Rebalance Collagen Revitalizing Lotion is formulated by Dermatologist. It is a hydrating moisturizer to rebalance skin’s moisture and firmness as well as protecting skin against environment irritants. It’s an ok moisturizer better use on dryer skin. It gets oily for me if I don’t use anything else. I don’t really like the scent but it kind of grew on me. The thing I like about this is the double UV filter.

So after moisturizer, I sit on my bed and decide what I am going to wear if I haven’t already decided the night before. I wait about 3-5 minutes until my moisturizer dry. By then I probably already pick my outfit. If I haven’t, I will be late.
bb cream
I then put on this Maybelline Clear Smooth BB White. I love this bb cream and I did a post of it here, but this the SPF50 while the former was only SPF26. Without sunscreen, I need the high SPF. It is also sheer, not thick, so kind of balance out the moisturizer. If the weather is not so hot, this will be too dark for me.

Then while that dry, I dress up. Follow by combing my hair.
clear smooth
I don’t really bother with concealer. I just use the Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Face Powder in natural to set the bb cream. They both work great together. This is a repurchase, cause I like it that much.

I will then quickly draw on my eyebrows. I use to not able to leave the house without mascara but now I know I can’t leave the house without my brows done. I just look so naked plain.

Then I use mascara, but I don’t curl them lashes. I kind just hope the mascara is good. As long as it doesn’t smudge, it’s good enough for me. In the morning, I don’t have much standard.

blush
If I have time, I put on blush like the MUA Mosaic Blush. It’s light and doesn’t show up as much. I feel that it’s unlikely I will screw up by having bright cheek. So this blush is perfect. On normal circumstances I don’t really like it. It’s coarse and doesn’t show. I feel like its more of a highlighter than a blush. They say the blush is suppose to be a universal blush and works for every skin or something, but I don’t see the magic of it.

clinique balm
I will lastly use Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry. This is just a moisturizing colored balm. The balm is quite sheer, but it’s kind of a berry pink tone, so it’s actually quite subtle on the lips. It is not hard to put on, most of the time I’ll use it when I’m waiting for the lift. It feels nice on the lips, really moisturizing. I also like the fact that it hides away my chapped lips on those days.

So that’s all

Leaders Clinic dermasoul Pore Control Mask

leaders clinic ,askI look fierce with a mask on. So this is unique as it is imprinted. All the other sheet masks i tried are pretty much just plain white. So it’s nice to know which side of the mask is touching the face.

The mask is not one that is tight. You can use it and still move around. It will stick to your face strangely. I always fear masks just drop out of my face. Not this one. I can move around but it’s also not a relaxing mask. Usually when you can’t move with a mask it kind of forces you to lie down and enjoy yourself. But this allows me to do my work. So it’s good if you want to multitask. I’m not saying others can’t give you that privilege too, but it’s just that others usually give you the I better take a break now kind of vibe. Do anyone get that?

Anyway it’s a really moisturizing mask. My face feels good but it looks really oily. I don’t really see how it helps to control the pore. I feel it kind of emphasize it more but maybe that’s just me psychologically – focus on the nose too much cause of the word pore.

RT Setting Brush

rt setting brushI just feel like having a tiny brush specially to set my concealer. Then at the end of the day, I will regret cause I have a lot of brushes to clean.

RT is one of my favourite brush brand. Not only they are good, but they are pretty affordable. So far, none of them shed upon washing. So that’s good.

Setting brush is quite small and tampered. The pointy top can be used as a contour brush. It just makes it really sharp. The side can be use to highlight. I guess the front side too. But the front side, I’ll just use it as its intended purpose. I don’t think this is a brush that everyone must have. But if you are the type who powder only under the eyes and down the T zone, this is good to have around. Fluffy, soft and small. Cleaning time is also faster than using a powder brush.

Modelco eyeliner

Blah!
Modelco eyeliner It’s an eyeliner that is creamy but smudge-prone. I really want an eyeliner that stick and doesn’t run and doesn’t transfer. Having hooded eyelid is hard enough. I really want one reasonable priced eyeliner that doesn’t smudge on me.

I like the build in sharpener. That’s about it. So the way I use this is a base or just a little and smudge it so it looks like I have eyeshadow on my lid.

Revlon Colorburst in mauve

I’ve been enjoying the colorburst line lately. I don’t think they still make the lipstick but its still in the market. Anyway, I got the one in mauve which is a purple based neutral. I never imagine me wearing something purple, but it swatches really pretty in the store that I had to get it. Plus it looks more neutral in the store, less purple, I think thanks to lighting. Only at home I realized that the color I got is mauve so of course it had to be mauve.

The picture of lip swatch is just a bad photo. And it looks more pink, I don’t know. As compare to the lip butter, it’s just a full color while the lip butter more like a balm. Both are good colors, both feel good on the lips, but they both give a different look to your face.

It’s surprisingly smooth to apply. It’s a cream, so it’s really nice. Pigmented. I can apply it once and run out the door without having to worry about bald spots. The color is really good on me too. Some days really mauve-y, some days just more MLBB shade. So I’ve been loving this lipstick a lot.

Heaven and Earth

I am switching makeup products on a weekly basis or I try to. I want to use all my makeup item in rotation, that way most of the stuff are being used. So I bring you my favorite palette of the moment – MUA heaven and earth palette. A beautiful 12 eyeshadows neutral palette.
20140327-172842.jpg
I love my neutrals. It’s so easy to use. Really fuss free. Can be use very naturally or can be smoked out. I really like MUA shadows and this is one of their best.

Liplicious in Cotton Candy

Bath and body works is finally in Singapore! This is their lip balm in cotton candy. It has the cotton candy taste much like the paddlepop ice cream.

It’s just sheer, pretty much transparent. It is not sticky so that’s good. I think this is a good lip gloss for kids or anyone really. But it’s a good yummy cheaper than philosophy lipgloss. I bought mine in the US when they have the buy 1 get 1 promotion. If not originally it will cost $7.50. I don’t know how much Sg sell them for.
