Wash off Yogurt mask pack from The Face Shop







Saw this interesting products on "The Face Shop" website!
I've tried using a plain yogurt (those that you can get from supermarket) to apply on clean face & love the effect! Have not try this "Wash Off Yogurt mask pack", not sure is it any good? Have anyone try this products so far?

M.A.C Select Cover-Up


Recently someone have been asking me about which concealer's best to cover up under eyes dark circle. This is one of the product I've tried which I find it quite good but it's a little hard to blend in and may look cakey if it is not blended properly. The way I do it is to apply bit by bit with dabbing motion. Good thing about this is,there is a wide range of shades available.

How to create long lashes & make the eyes look brighter.



Saw this in a Japanese beauty magazine "VOCE" Nov issue 2009. I think it maybe interesting to gals who like to know a bit more on how to use eye lash curler & mascara in a much more detail way!
(1)Put the eye lash curler close to the root of your lashes.
(2)Press firmly but gently tilt up.
(3)Do the same for the inner corner of your lashes.
(4)Don't forget to curl the outer corner of your lashes as well.
(5)Apply mascara by using the comb designed application from Majorica Majoca(selling at Watson), start from the root of your lashes.
(6)Use a clean lash comb to brush through as to separate the lashes in case the stick together.
(7)Use a battery operated eye lash heater to slightly hold up the upper lashes.
(8)Using the same eye lash heater to press down the lower lashes, this will also help to kind of make the eye look wide open.
(9)Use a volumizing type of mascara to re-apply the lashes again by a Z motion.
(10)Using the tip of the mascara brush to brush out every single lashes.
(11)Not forgetting the lower lashes as well.
(12)Using the comb design type of mascara to brush through again starting from the root.
(13)Separate the lashes again.
(14)Finally hold up the lashes again by using the lash heater.

In case you find it difficult to do the lashes in so many steps, you may like to use false eye lashes instead?
I prefer false lashes that look like "MAC #33 Lash", as they look much more natural when you add on.Is best to curl your lashes & apply mascara first than add the fake lashes, re-apply mascara again after when the lashes are firmly glue on.

Vitalumiere Eclat Compact from Chanel



Was using this powder foundation during my last photo shoot with Ms Jacelyn Tay for 8-days magazine as Singapore's Coco Chanel. Love the soft fine texture of the powder! The feel and comfort of a cream in a pressed powder.
8 HOURS OF NON-STOP RADIANCE
All day long, the skin maintains its fresh and velvety appearance, as if the powder was just applied:
81% more radiance 8 hours after a single application.
The skin texture is velvety and naturally even.
The skin’s radiance is revived. The skin texture is velvety and naturally even.
Two applicators for two makeup results:
• With the soft touch sponge for a finish with good coverage. Gently press over entire face.
• With the soft touch sponge for a finish with good coverage. Gently press over entire face.
Use VITALUMIÈRE ÉCLAT COMPACT on its own, or after VITALUMIÈRE Fluid for a more sophisticated result.

Too Faced Cosmetics!




Saw this range of cosmetics in "Boots" when I was in London. Quite interesting!
"Too Faced Cosmetics"
Since its inception in 1998, Too Faced Cosmetics has earned a reputation for being trendy, irreverent, innovative, and fun—much like Jerrod himself. From unique products and packaging, to shade names with a wicked sense of humor and undeniably glamorous formulas, Too Faced truly lives up to the brand's philosophy: "Why be pretty when you can be gorgeous?"
Too Faced is a name that has become synonymous with style and continues to set the trends that dominate the fashion magazines. And while one foot is firmly planted in fashion, the other is swimming in celebrity. As a makeup staple on the set of some of today's hottest movies and T.V shows, as well as the red carpet, many of Too Faced's products are becoming as famous as the characters they were named after. From Marcia Marcia Marcia, George and Weezie, to Steel Magnolias, screen-inspired shade names have fast become another Too Faced signature.
With a growing roster of trendsetting shadow shades, high-tech lip plumpers (Lip Injection), why-didn't-I-think-of-that innovations (Liquif-Eye, which transforms eye shadow into liquid liner), and a collection of cute-as-punch palettes, which have amassed a major following of their own (The Quickie Chronicles), Too Faced has come a long way from paper cups and found a niche in the makeup market. As one of the chicest—and quirkiest—cosmetic brands around, Too Faced encourages us to unleash our inner starlet and steal the spotlight by giving us makeup that's glamorous, fun, and has a sense of humor. And, really, what could be more fabulous than that?

Q & A the boys behind the brand
Q. What is your favorite Too Faced Product? Why?
A. Jerrod-Snow Bunny. It makes you look like you have flawless, perfect radiant skin. Your skin looks like you’re seven years old again. Snow Bunny is a fountain of youth in a compact!
A. Jeremy- Any product that changes the way a woman/girl feels about her self image; she should feel gorgeous.

L'Oréal Paris True Match Roll'on Foundation


Was shopping with my mom in London "Boots" & she bought this foundation.
Surprisingly good, I wasn't expecting much, thinking it was going to be one of those products that is built up on hype and then lets you down. Not this one though - coverage is good, it's fun to put on and lasts. Only down side, it is quite difficult to apply around the eyes, but once you get the trick its fine. Price at £12.71
