    hello! The above link is one of my favourite post! =) Basically because I love MAC products. Started using them since I was only 17, now Im 23. Love their two way cake with spf, blusher and my favourite are their lip stick and gloss for their wide range and uniqueness of colour tones.

    My favourite shade of lipstick is honeylove (pale pink in matte) and peach stock (nude peach tone in semi matte) and that explains why I like the post about those mineralize blusher which comes in peach tone. I love peach tones as it provides a natural glow to asian skin and furthermore mineral products are good for the skin. It works the same ways as BB cream where its provide as make up base and at the same time treats the skin! Both rockz!

    Really looking forward to your entries on MAC products and peach tones/ mineral blushes! =)

    I really enjoyed the entire series of posts as it was informative but not in a boring lecturish way. I can tell the amount of research and knowledge that went into these posts must have been astounding. I learnt quite a fair bit from those few posts, as well as lots of your other ones =)

    Thanks for all the effort >_<

  4. February 27, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    It’s love at first sight for the wonderful packaging! Like the detailed descriptions when you tested the product and how hygiene the product is sealed. Now that I have discovered a nice hand cream that not only nourishes but smells great! Guaranteed to have sweet dreams when used at night :) Not to mention the super cute graphics and cut-outs in the box. Will definitely try it when I have a chance. Thanks!

    This is my favourite post because I have been searching all over the net for a good eye base that isn’t that expensive and is effective. I heard about I Nuovi’s eye base however I have been unable to find a good review for it. But now, I have finally found it.

    I also think there should be more reviews on these sort of products due to the weather in singapore. My makeup keeps creasing and melting off my face!!!

    It was difficult for me to choose a favourite post because there are so many post which i really like and are helpful for a makeup noob like me! Ive only started puting on makeup(basic) around mid June last year so there’s still alot for me to learn!

    I hardly put on any eye shadow but during chinese new year this year, my sister helped me with it with majolica majorca eye shadow and I LOVE IT! I had the greyish one one and its was fantastic! I used to hate all the glitter stuffs from the eye shadow (ok don’t ask me why :/ ) but after that day i start to like all things glitter! (yes i know im weird haha!) I’ve just bought the exact greyish colour eyeshaw from MM last wednesday and i can’t wait for my exams to be over so i can wear it out!! I must say this is my favorite makeup item so far! <3 Im hoping to get the BL711 Doll’s Wink which you feature in that post as well! Luv the colours!!

    So thank you for that post! Keep updating because this blog is definitely helping me with all the makeup items and all! Very useful! & thanks for the hardwork put into all these posts as well hon <3

    I liked this series on primers: I generally enjoy your “educational”, in-depth analyses on makeup techniques – something that most other local beauty blogs don’t really do (reviews are most common). Hope to see more of these articles!

    my all time fave post! :) it felt as though i attended eric’s master class too!!!!

    Dealing with NARS’s Sticky Packaging

    this was my favorite as i had received a blush from nars for my birthday, slightly more than a year ago and the packaging has just started to get gummy and gross. i stupidly resorted to DIY-Gmasking that was so time consuming :S i was thinking of getting another shade, but the packaging really put me off. now that there is another cheaper and faster alternative to get around this problem, i may just give in to my nars lemmings. thanks for the tip!

    p.s : i followed you on twitter! @veraflytish

    my favorite post is:

    the body shop originals bring me back to days when skincare and makeup products were much more scarce and singapore (+ my life) much simpler. i remember cool rich girls in my school using fuzzy peach, dewberry and myself using what i thought was a lot of money then to get the apple shower gel which my mom loved. those were real treats in the 80s, early 90s…nostalgia alert!

    To be honest, i’m pretty new to your site, so i haven’t had the time to go through all your posts, but so far, from what i’ve gone through, i like the abovementioned post best. It’s a challenge to maintain a good work-life balance – working 8 hours in freezing Arctic-like air-conditioning temperatures, not to mention the stress levels & heading out after work to meet friends/loved one till late. All this takes a toll on our skin & looking wide awake & alert the following morning’s always a challenge!

    I’ve always avoided using white eyeliner, for fear of looking too ‘alienish’, especially since i’m rather tanned. After reading your post, i tried out using shimmery white eyeliner pencil (albeit according to the useful tips you provided) & voila! I looked amazingly awake & alert immediately, despite the late night before =)

    Seriously, it really work! Thanks for sharing with all your followers & meanwhile, i do hope that you’ll select me to be the winner of this giveaway post! *keeps fingers crossed & prays fervently*

    I’ll continue following your site, please do keep up the great job you’ve done so far! Makeup rocks!!! =)

    Have a nice day ahead!

    Oh yes, i’m crazyshopholic @ Twitter (following you already) & Cass Tan on Facebook (also been following you already) =)

    Remember me having my hands on the mother of all blushes aka Orgasm in the sticky state? I consulted you and you told me to depot it. I’m pretty anal when it comes to packaging but I’m glad I did not depot it after all. Your post’s a saviour! -wink-

    Found this post very informative. Thanks for highlighting the problem of the Nars packaging and the solution. If i can get my hands on a Z-Palette i would consider deporting it to avoid this problem but your solution might be the next best thing. :)

    I wonder if elf packaging have this problem anot , since some of their products have similar packaging. I think it got to do with the rubbery material and our humid weather. :/.
