    3. I’ve tried Aqualabel’s Aqua Effector Water, which promises to improve effectiveness of skin products. So far its been great and there was no sticky feeling (a great plus point). I use it after I apply ettusais lotion and toner.

    Like my mom, I love Shiseido products but can’t afford to splurge on their counter products )': Reading about the Aqualabel line in Watsons made me really happy! It was more wallet-friendly for me and the acne range sounded like something I’d love to try (thinking bout trying Ettusais too)

    I love the Kosé Esprique Precious Double Shine Face Powder SPF18/PA++ that you’re giving away! Kosé products bestow powers upon every girl wishing to be beautiful and this face powder will give me a glowing skin protected from the sun’s rays! Lovely~

    Hi mag! I’ve already followed you on GFC. Nickname is Lynn Ang

    The colours do spell earthy, but they seem a little too dull for my liking. However, I think the green mascara and liner would go well with brown eyes. this is definitely something I would like to try.

    Ps. I do love the names given to the products though, very ‘jewelry shop’-like. haha.

    Anna Sui Lip Color/Eye Color Collection IV

    I love the lip colors from Anna Sui~! Some are bold and makes a statement, while others are subtle and just so pretty! The fact that this collection comes with a larger mirror also allows for better application too~ (unlike their mini rouge/eyeshadow’s mirror.)

    I love the packaging of the Anna Sui Forbidden Affair and how its inspiration comes from the Snow White fairy tale. It makes it so intriguing and romantic at the same time.

    Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!

    ANNA SUI! :D

    I love Anna Sui’s products mainly because of its lovely scent! Been using its nail polishes and lipsticks for quite awhile! :) Pretty sad that the rose scent in the old polishes seem to be stronger but still love them nonetheless!

    I love how pigmented these lipgloss are! Ive tried it at the counters and I must say I really like the Rose Absolu shade too! (Actually I like them all! Hahaha) Would love to own one of these! So far I only have a Lancome mascara and I LOVE it to bits! hehehe..

    I’ve never tried anything from Benefit but I’ve seen a lot of great reviews for the creaseless creams including yours! It looks perfect for a shadow base or even just wear it alone :)

    I’m a follower on both Twitter (theannamontana) and Facebook (Anna D. Crystal Jaeger)

    It must be utterly funny to have such blogger events, enjoying amazing food and having such an impressing view of Singapore. And on top of that you’re allowed to try the products and mess around with them.

    Hi! I’m following you as Cheryl on GFC.

    Shiseido’s Macquillage line has amazing colours and the eyeshadows stay on forever, but they crease a little on me which really sucks. So pretty though!

    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

    Girl Meets Pearl

    (b) I personally really like benefit products because they are so girly and the packaging is so cute. Girl meets pearl is a really nice product, especially for the glamourous ladies. There is a slight golden hue in the product, giving a really nice and sheer highlight especially when applied on the cheekbones. and can i just say the packaging really rocks :) I really need this for christmas! :)

    i really like shiseido products.. and their family brands like majolica.. but to be honest, shiseido products are a little too expensive for students like me, so i tend to buy brands that are nice and cheap like majolica! :) i have the majolica blush, mascara and i think shiseido as a mama brand really rocks. I really hope to win Shiseido Collector’s Edition Makeup Palette as my first real shisedo makeup.

    thanks so much!

    the first time I saw your blog is when I am looking for the price range for aqualabel. I really appreciate that you stated down the price as it makes me easier to calculate how much I will spend for the products.

    Later I also look through your more detailed post about the aqualabel product to get to have a better understanding of what colour of the series stands for and their uses.

    From then, I start reading your blog regularly. I really like how you update the new beauty products. ;D

    I think I almost fainted when I saw the Kosé Esprique Precious giveaway section. I absolutely ADORE Kosé! I’m very much a fan of Japanese cosmetics brands. Aesthetics plus quality! Loves.

    The Multi Prism Palette Case is so pretty. The sparkles remind me of the galaxy too! I really like that every item in the Twinkle Story Collection has bling-like sparkles on the cases. So matching and DREAMY! Sparkly! *-* Japanese cosmetics brands all have wonderful cases for their products.

    I’m so glad for makeupstash! Love all the awesome reviews! I’ve really learnt alot more about the quality of products out in the market. ALSO, the sneak peeks are awesome. Always exciting to see new products!

    I really hope to win the Kosé Esprique Precious Loose Powder(.<

    Much Loves,

    I love the way Anna Sui products look. It’s so dreamy, like in a fairyland. Image having all of their produts on a pink dressing table. Ahhh, I feel so so so much like a princess.

    By the way, thanks for the giveaway.

    2a) Shiseido.

    2b) This is a beautiful classic red color that I’ll love to try ! It looks very wearable and will instantly glam up one’s makeup look. I like that it’s creamy and not shimmery. A worthy buy indeed (:

    Like you on facebook… FB Nick pinklady2711

    Been following your blod since I read about it in Strait Times Urban, since then your blog has been my one stop webby to get updated on t he lastest update on beauty products and Promo… I esp like the fact that you update us on the pros and cons of the products… Honest and both enriching

    I am in love with the Kosé Esprique Precious Dress On Glossy Rouge….

    Got tempted by the Kose Esprique Precious Twinkle Story Collection after reading your reviews. Love their Aurora Crystal Gloss the most in the collection…

    Been lovin the Kose Lip gloss since I started work and it has become a must have in my make up pouch… By far my favourite brand of lip gloss

    Following on Twitter: tarandip

    I love the Shiseido White Lucent range. I love the fact that Shiseido constantly tries to distinguish itself from other brands such as their multi level approach to target melanin production.
    I am always on the look out for a range that provides good results for brightening and Shiseido never disappoints!

    Thank you!

    Hi Mag!

    Lovely giveaway you have! :)

    I am following you on Facebook as “Graclyn Sammie Wong” :)

    I read about Anna Sui’s Rockin’ Wonderland Holiday Collection 2010 for the first time here!


    I guess I am spolit for choices but I would really wish to have either one of the below:
    ★ Lip Color Collection IV and Eye Color Collection IV (S$65 each) ★
    ★ Necklace Rouge (S$75) ★

    Both products are actually meant for the lips.

    Why do I choose them?
    I love fanciful makeup items. Anna Sui take pride in designing their products casing with dolly-like details. When you see the design, instantly you know its Anna Sui. Its like a brand recognition by design. I want the purple ★ Lip Color Collection IV and Eye Color Collection IV ★ as purple is my favourite colour. I am currently carrying a see-through mesh bag, so this is gonna be the biggest attraction as to what others can see from my bag :) Dollish and chic! I am bound to make heads turn with the lovely mirror design in my bag.

    As for the other ★ Necklace Rouge ★, I am a person who seldom wear accessories as I am quite lazy. But I am a big fan of lippies! I have like 50 lipsticks and lip glosses but have a beautiful necklace with a rouge, its gonna be the prettiest accessory I ever have :)

    I hope I am lucky today!

    My email is

    Love and God Bless!

    Hi, I’ve followed you on Twitter. Nick: rainchng
    The skeptic in me has always thought that Anna Sui makeup look good on the outside but disappoint on the inside. However it is getting harder to resist collecting this brands’ makeup (a hobby of mine) after reading the reviews e.g. the holiday collections. If I have 1 or 2 items to try out first (test lasting power etc), it would be great!

    I love this collection especially the charming beauty box. I love Anna Sui for her vintage-y cases and whimsical accessories. I have most of the trays to store my makeup and trinkets. I hope I can win the charming beauty to store my charming watches.

    Have a Merry Christmas, Mag!

    Love the smashing giveaway, ho ho ho!

    Followed on twitter @sevenwinks – revived my acct just for this!

    The lancome absolu creme de brilliance has such a rich color that a little goes a long way, although that’s perfect in my case for creating a deep luscious shiny pout easily with a swipe.

    If i could have any choice at all, I’d love to have any of the lippies/gloss or the matte veil/face powders.

    I was attracted to your reviews for the Shiseido autumn make up in the following post in August, especially for the eye colour trio. The pictures tempted me to make a trip to the counter to swap the colours on my skin. In the end I purchased GY901 Snow Shadow & GD804 Opera. I love how the colours showed up on my skin and it could last me 8 hours straight without creases. Thank you Mag, for the recommendations.

    Hi! What a wonderful giveaway to celebrate Christmas! :D
    link of Anna Sui Eyeshadow Duo:
    Personally i own the eyeshadow duo mentioned in the link, the purple duo! my cousin bought it for me for my birthday present and the colours of the eyeshadow is really intense and long-lasting! the glitters of the lighter shade and the easy blending and complementing shade of the darker hue works perfectly! it’s very easy to make a smoky eye with this eyeshadow duo and the colours of the duos are all so pretty!
    was very attracted to have one after seeing yr review and also due to the pretty packaging anna sui products always has! :D

    Your giveaway contest would make it a good start to the holiday season if I do get any. :)

    Am following you on twitter as akiwishes

    After reading your review on the Anna Sui cosmetics at isetan orchard, I am tempted to get the fragrance. And I love all the Anna Sui packaging and how even the cotton buds are arranged in the signature way. Would love to get the case to store my jewelery.

  41. December 7, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I am not a heavy eyeshadow user but as usual, I’ll get attracted to colours like BR312 and GD015. but the shadows featured are too shimmery, yes?


    ps: thanks for the giveaway! :)

    Anna Sui !!!

    Have known Anna Sui for quite some time, but being a poor student, i never really own one. After reading your post about this holiday collection, i am soooooooooooo tempted to bring those babies home this X’mas. Their whimsy yet elegant design of every Anna Sui’s piece is what every girl will fall for at first sight! Not to mention their whole spectrum of fantasy colors they offer!! *melt~*

    Hi Mag

    I’ve followed you on facebook, my name is: Fesan Boen

    As someone with monolids, i used to think that i cant really pull off eyeshadows with brighter colours, which is why i used to stick with brown/beige. However, i have recently learnt that people with monolids can wear bright coloured eyeshadows. I was looking for green eyeshadows swatches online when i stumbled upon your post. Thanks for the review!

    i think this foundation sounds really good! it looks very portable and certainly able to fit into my makeup pouch if i were to own it!!! however it is a little on the pricey side and a student like me cant afford it, sadly!
    nevertheless, its the season of giving! i hope someone with gift it to me :D

    Hey there! I followed you on fb and twitter.

    I adore how Anna Sui has a girly yet rocker-ish appeal in their product packaging and I find that the necklace rouge will make an statement accessory that is able to turn a boring outfit into something fun! In addition, I will be able to touch up my makeup whenever, at my convenience.

    Love the Anna Sui eye palette, very dainty! This caught my eye on the 1st sight! It is easy to grab with the handle and the mirror is very handy for gals on the go, thumbs up!

    Thanks makeup stash for holding this contest every year :)

  49. December 7, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    I always love the retro/ whimsy vibe that Benefit uses in all aspects of it’s branding and marketing! I’ve got myself the Creaseless Eyeshadow in r.s.v.p, and it glides on like a DREAM. Plus, the cream eyeshadow seems to compliment many of the other Japanese brands eyeshadow palettes that you feature :)
