From their exquisite rose and butterfly designs to their signature colours – black, purple and white, and also their varieties – comestics, nail polishes, perfumes, makeup accessories, etc. But of course the most important is your detailed description to each and every pictures which makes these so fastinating.

    Thanks for this amazing giveaways! And Merry Christmas to you!

    I love Benefit for their whimsical packaging and amazing products. And Benefit has done a wonderful job of introducing girl meets pearl. It is made from raspberry, chamomile, sweet almond oil and sweet almond seed, which gives the wearer a luminous and glowing complexion and moisturize at the same time. No wonder wearers are raving over it!

    ~ I came across your blog when I was reading reviews of Benefit’s products. This post is the one which made me hooked up on Benefits products. I totally love the colour of Posie Tint. It’s a very sheer, very bright pink. I’m wearing this as a cheek color daily and it looks so adorable that I can’t stand it. I love it for being so easy to use and blends beautifully.

    I love Benefit’s products to bits and pieces! Their attractive packaging makes me go gaga over their products over and over again. I absolutely love Poise Tint! I am amazed how it brings out a sheer rosy with a tinge of sweet pink which highlights the cheeks and brightens up my face so easily! Perfect!
    Girl meets pearl is yet another highly raved product which I yearn to possess! Perfect complexion with a glamourous glow in a snap of fingers! How wonderful!!

    The Benefit Poise Tint is my favourite! I like that how the sheer tint gives my cheek a rosy look and another item that I love from Benefit is their, That Gal- a pinky base primer that works wonderfully both under makeup or over it.

    It can be so hard to create that natural glow as we grow older due to heavy workloads, increasing commitments, never ending housework and never enough sleep. How I miss the glow. If radiance is conveniently available in a bottle of foundation, I say go for it! I’m dying to try this!… after I get my bonus :)

    Hello! Liked Makeup Stash in FB ^^

    I love this post for many reasons, one of which is that I’ve stayed in The Club and love it. I stayed there during my first Singapore trip so I felt very nostalgic seeing the pictures. I also love Anna Sui, both their cosmetics and their perfumes. Posts like these added fuel to the fire as I eagerly anticipated their holiday collection!

    Anyway more power to your site and thanks for always updating us on the latest!

    Protective Fluid Foundation L
    I’ve been trying to find a liquid that it’s light on my skin, as well as staying fresh all day! As I read on the description, it is very moisturising and anti-sebum, which I have a huge problem on with my facial skin. Helping the oil to stay away from my face while having foundation on is very important as I need to look good every moment! I believe Anna Sui’s Protective Fluid Foundation L can help me with looking fresh, pretty and confident.

    I wish that I can win the foundation and have a pretty me this x’mas!
    Merry christmas to you!

    b) As i am stil a student, I havent really got the opportunity to try out their palettes but on one of my birthdays i was blessed w a pore-minimising fdn frm sheseido. i found the powder rlly fine and it was not drying or anyth. similarly for this pdt, i tried it out before at the counters, and i think i rlly like it. Though the colours are not exactly the most pigmented eye shadows u can find in the market, it is very fine and the shimmery effect actually brings abt a 3d effect. Makes u eye look rounder and more outstanding overall. Moreover the palette u were talkin abt his the cream base and eyeliner !! awesome ~

    i have major acne outbreak a few years ago which left a lot of acne scars on my cheeks where i cant just hide it with my fringe or under concealor without making my face look too cakey. when i read your post on the white lucent range, i really feel like trying out them in hope of them being able to lighten my scars.

  45. December 12, 2010 at 10:57 pm


    The Link is:

    Why I like it:

    1. The price – which means I feel less guilty about buying yet, one more.

    2. Their not so wide (so as to confuse you) and the not so limited (so as to hinder you from finding a color which you like and can actually wear) range.

    3. The elemtn of glittery sparkle in it – I’m shy with eye makeup as I have single eyelids and have recently experimented to a new look I like and can confidently wear which involves slightly glittery or simmery eyeshadow, followed by a delicately drawn eyeliner on the lashline to make my eyes look bigger, brighter and adds just that bit more character to my look.

    as with all anna sui designs, the fragrance looks pretty too! and you said “Floral and fruity, this perfume has top notes of Williams pear, green orange and peach skin. Its middle notes comprise honeysuckle, jasmine and waterlily; while its base notes are cedarwood, amber, and vanilla.
