Two Powders for People Who Don’t Like Powders

I very rarely talk about powders, because truth to be told, powder and I just don’t get along very well. Up until the end of last year, Hourglass ambient lighting palette was the ONLY setting/finishing powder in my stash. I don’t have extremely dry skin – it’s more on the combination leaning towards the dry side, but for reasons still unknown to me, my fact hates powders. They either settle into fine lines, or exaggerate dry patches, so for the longest time, I rather walking…

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.

Now before you judge me of making a purchase based on…

The Liquid Lipstick Experiment

There are a few more liquid lipstick launches this year (case in point, Burberry and Marc Jacobs Beauty have also joined the party recently), which to me, says the liquid lipstick trend is probably not going anywhere just yet. No matter you love it or hate it, have to admit that the concept of liquid lipstick is pretty genius: great color payoff in one swipe and lasts a whole day with eating and drinking. Now, only if it’s comfortable to wear, and doesn’t feel like…
