Glossier Cloud Paint Review: Puff & Beam

From the first day when I know Glossier started making makeup products, I have been anxiously waiting for them to come out with blushes, which is probably my favorite makeup category. So when I saw Cloud Paint launched, I made a mental note to myself that I need to get my hands on those in all means. If you haven’t already heard of Glossier, it’s a brand created by Emily Weiss – the founder of Into The Gloss, a site that all beauty lovers would…

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear BB Cream Review

During my recent holiday trip to Tokyo, I was very surprised to find a small collection of Physician’s Formula products sitting in the shelf (they are not the easily accessible brands in Asia), and one of them is the Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin All-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream with SPF 20 (aka.

Guerlain Liquid Eyeliner Review

After going through two tubes of my favoriteLancôme Grandiose liquid eyeliner in basically lightning speed (one can last about 2.5 months with daily use, I have a full review here), I thought I will venture out of my comfort zone and try something different. That’s when the Guerlain liquid eyeliner landed in my dressing table. I was initially drawn it by its package (no surprise here). It’s hosed in a frosted bottle with an extra long handle. This is what I imagined a liquid eyeliner used…
