My Quest for Acid Facial Peel Has Been Answered

Where do I begin with this product? Hmm… Let’s see, I have always been a fan of incorporating some sort of acid peel into my daily skin care routine, but haven’t been particularly impressed with the results – they either feel like they are about to burn your face, or are too mild to make any difference, case in point, the ever popular First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. But it has now forever changed since I started this journey with the Dr Dennis Gross…

Glossier Generation G Lipstick Swatches & Updated Review

A few months back, when I did a roundup review of Glossier makeup products, I mentioned I have mixed feelings about the Generation G lipsticks. Fast forward to now, where I end up with a full collection of the entire line, 6 shades, I think I’ve finally made my up mind (rightfully so, I mean the entire collection!) and ready to share my thoughts. Let me start by saying what haven’t changed: 1. I still think it’s overpriced for what it is; and 2. The…

Two New Liquid Eyeliner Discoveries

You know me and liquid eyeliners, we have an ongoing love affair that’s unlikely to go away anyway time soon. Maybe it’s because of my hooded Asian eye shape, but every time when I have a good eyeliner day, I feel I’m ready to conquer the world. OK, maybe not as far as conquering the world, but it’s definitely empowering, that’s what I’m trying to say. So yes, another post, another eyeliner review. But this time, not just one liquid eyeliner, it’s two: the EM…

EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Cloud Review

When Michelle Phan re-launched her makeup brand EM Cosmetics – this time, it’s her independent brand, not part of the L’Oreal group anyway, she started with a very small collection: a liquid eyeliner (well technically two, one brush tip and one felt tip), and a line of liquid lipsticks. I got my hands on both, and I like them both. But if I had to pick one, I would say the liquid lipstick is total winner. The package of the liquid lipstick is quite up…

2017 Skincare Empties – Part 2

Here I am, with another round of skincare empties. I know I’ve been saying this with practically every empty review post, but seriously, the satisfaction I get when looking at the pile of empty bottles is very real, which may sound bizarre to a lot of people (my close friends included), but hopefully you get me, or at least no judgement here Okay? AmorePacific Treatment Toner I’ve tried a few skincare products from the AmorePacific line in the past 2 years, but with the exception…

2017 Skincare Empties – Cleansers

In my mind, there is no better way to start my 2018 beauty blogging than rounding up some of the beauty empties I have been accumulating for the last few months of 2017. So here I am, digging through my beauty trash and sharing with you my final thoughts on them. In an effort of not making it an uber long post (because you know how rambly I can be), I’ll be splitting these empties into a few posts, so keep your eyes peeled for…

Sisley So Intense Eyeliner Review

I’ve finished up the Guerlain liquid eyeliner, which I have done a full review awhile back here. All my thoughts are still the same, in case you are wondering: great formula, but not the easiest one to use. As a reward to myself (you know what I mean, finishing up a makeup item is quite an achievement), I picked up the Sisley So Intense Eyeliner, which I have heard some good reviews about in the beauty community. And..let me just say, after a month of…
