All the swatches were swatched dry on the back of my hand (no primer nor base)
The baked shadows can be use dry or wet... when using it wet, it will gives a more intense shade.  The baked eyeshadow feels smooth and swatch nicely on the back of my bare hand..
House in a very basic black base with transparents top plastic case. Abit hard to open.. so have to be extra careful if you don't wanna send them flying off your hands. The baked shadow wasn't firmly glued onto the base of the plastic case, cos when I swatch the shadow, it will move abit.



 
Price : SD$17.90 each
Available at Watsons, Guardian, Sa Sa, selected department stores, major supermarkets and hypermarts from September 2012 onwards.

Maybelline An Arresting Lash Revolution @ ZOUK

On the eve of our (Singapore) National Day - Aug 8th 2012... I was partying standing @ ZOUK with a group of friends (bloggers). Check out the cute invitation!


I'm not a clubbing person - but I do love the musics, the lighting and the "darkness" ... it just that I don't like "crowds". (lolx) Anyway, I have fun cos all my friends (most of them) were there... so I don't feel so lonely (It's sad and isolated when you feel lonely in a crowd!!! Don't you think so??)

They also set up a booth for the latest Maybelline's products which will be in Store in September 2012 with special discount.

Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion in Nano Formula [Review]

Sometimes back Hada Labo released a newly reformula Super Hyaluronic Acid lotion with new ‘nano’ hyaluronic acid molecule. The New ‘Nano’ Super Hyaluronic Acid boosts its hydration power, and now enables full and thorough hydration from skin surface to deep within.

The new ‘nano’ hyaluronic acid molecule is 1/20 the size of the normal hyaluronic acid’s. This enables penetration to areas deep within the skin. The other two hyaluronic acid, ‘Normal’ and ‘Super’ hydrate skin closer to the surface.
With a superior combination of all three hyaluronic acid (Nano, Super, Normal), Hada Labo Hydrating range can give your skin a deeper and fuller hydration.



  • Fragrances Free
  • Mineral oil Free
  • Alcohol Free
  • Colorant Free
  • Skin pH balanced
  • Low Irritating

Ingredients list (click to enlarge)




The new reformula Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion Nano consistency feel pretty much similar to the original version. Only can feel abit of the different when applied on the skin.
  • The lotion does feel watery with alittle bit of slimy consistency.
    But it doesn't make skin feel "sticky" nor "stuffy" once the lotion absorbed into the skin.
  • Not as sticky as the original version
  • Fast absorption and the nano lotion sit very well on the skin
  • The finishing of the lotion feel moist and "cooling"(on the skin surface)
  • Skin does feel refreshing and soothing (I like~)
  • Moisturizing
  • Skin feel supple
    (It might be the cream that I'm using, but this lotion does "help" to boost up the hydrating level)
  • Calm "warm/inflammation" skin
  • Safe to apply around eye areas.
  • lightweight
    The consistency of the "nano" lotion feel abit more lighter and watery as compare to the original lotion when I apply it on the skin.
  • doesnt cause any break-out
  • No irritation
  • Doesn't crash with the skincare products that I'm using/rotating
    (brand:: For beloved One, Origins or Elizabeth Arden products)
I prefer to pour alot of the SHA lotion on cotton pad (just soak up the cotton square pad) and start patting all over my face.  The lotion feel lightweight and absorb fast and nicely onto the skin.
I do notice that (from my previous experiences) - the lotion start to lose abit of the efficacy after opening the products for more then 2 to 3 months. This huge bottle can last up to 3 to 5 mths depend on the usage (if use about 2 to 3 drops each time). So please use generously.. else it would be a waste if you keep the products for too long.
.
.
About my skin condition :
My skin start to feel abit dry again but NOT tight (thankfully)
T-zone still feel normal (abit oily - only on nose)
I guess I should resign to my fate that NOW my skin is dry combination.
I think age play a huge part in changing my skin condition.
I feel greateful as long as it doesn't feel tight and painful! ^_^
