NARS: Dual Intensity Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

NARS: Dual Intensity Eyeshadows Review

Double or nothing.

Indeed, these “mesmerizing new Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows feature a luxuriously smooth transformative texture. Twelve ready-to-wear and rebelliously romantic sophisticated shades to express a riveting range of eye drama. Go both ways.”

In general, I love the formula of these eyeshadows, especially when layered over a primer, such as my favourite Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. The intensity of the eyeshadows are definitely buildable and what I really like about them is that they are also smooth and blendable. Picked 2 out of 12 eyeshadows from the recent TANGS Summer Rebates and I must say that I am in love with my first NARS products!

Clarisonic: Deep Pore Decongesting Solution Review & Thoughts

Clarisonic: Deep Pore Decongesting Solution

You know those days when you pile up heavy makeup and you just want the best results in removing them from your face at the end of the day? I personally experience a difficulty in cleansing my face totally from my makeup. Usually, I would go through my heavy makeup with my trusty shu uemura POREfinist Anti-Shine Fresh Cleansing Oil as it does such an awesome job in melting all my makeup, including waterproof mascara and eyeliner! However, I always feel that it’s not enough because I still regularly get a few pimples popping out here and there.

I was lucky enough to get to try the Clarisonic for the first time (courtesy of my colleague from Clarisonic SG), and so this is going to be a review on the Clarisonic Mia 2, a comparison of the sensitive and deep pore brush heads as well as my thoughts on the skincare products from the NEW Deep Pore Decongesting Solution range. For a Clarisonic user for the first time, I was impressed.

So, what is it?

shu uemura: Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Tint Review and Swatches

shu uemura: Tint in Gelato
A review up as promised! This is something different from my usual reviews, because I am currently interning in the brand now. It’s going to my honest opinion about the product, as well as lip swatches I did as part of a digital launch project for the brand.
Being a makeup lover, it’s always fun and exciting when makeup brands come up with colourful launches, especially in the eyes and lips categories for me as I really adore eyeshadows, drawing pencils and lip products! This summer, shu uemura (in small letters, pronounced as shoo-oo-eh-moo-ra) came up with a lip and cheek tint, called Tint in Gelato, just in time to hop onto the bandwagon of where the beauty market is going.

The Tint in Gelato (TIG) comes in a velvety soft semi-matte texture and there are 12 delicious shades as follows:

(Note that in Singapore, shades are by code numbers only)
