The Face Shop - Home Aesthetic Seaweed Pack

The Face Shop - Home Aesthetic Seaweed Pack
Facial Mask (apply & wash off type)
Good for oily skin type, effective in removing excess sebum

What do I think?
This mask smells good, maybe it's part of the "Aesthetic" to relax the brain with aromatherapy. I used this mask once a week. After washing off, the skin feels smooth and soft but a bit dry maybe because it removes excess sebum. Hence, I will usually follow up with a paper mask or those moisturising sleeping masks. I like the calming effect on my skin and it doesn't cause pimples outbreaks. Lovely.

stila major lash mascara and lip glaze

 stila major lash mascara

This luxurious cream-based formula adds instant pigment to shine and define. Can be layered for a more dramatic look, keeps lashes soft, and curls on command. The best part there is no flaking and lashes remain large and in charge throughout the day. This is truely a Stila favorite.

What do I think?
I do like this mascara. I am careful when I apply because this is rather wet. It takes a while to dry after application. Hence I will avoid blinking hard to prevent staining my lower lash or eyelids.After it has dried, there is no flaking at all and relatively smudge-free. This is excellent because I have oily eyelids and watery eyes. This mascaras thickens and lengthens, but I don't think it curls on command. I still have to curl my lashes before applying this mascara to get the curls. I think I will buy this again if it is not expensive.   

stila lip glaze

Want lips that get all the attention they deserve? Turn on the shine and you'll be turning heads with stila's most popular lip gloss. Choose from an array of delectable shades that add a splash of color and fabulously matching flavors and scents in one easy click of the famous pen. Cosmetics experts agree-this top seller is an essential addition to any beauty bag.

What do I think?
This is a great product. I always hated how the clinique's lip gloss sticks my lips today. This is not sticky on lips, add shine and nicely scented. I always prefer to apply my lip gloss with the hair-like brush than those sponge-like tips. I am glad I have another few of this lip glaze in different shades. 

I bought my stila products from USA before Sephora Singapore came. I guess it is still cheaper to buy from USA, especially beautycrunch website.

Another 2 lippies!!

I have just received my recent purchase, 2 highly raved lippies! I'm into nude lips now, so I chose these two colours...


1) ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Gloss Stick - Nude Almond
This is sheer and glossy. It feels comfortable on my lips. It has the teinted lipgloss effect, but not sticky or thick at all. Nice!

2) YSL Rouge Volupte Radiant Lipstick - #1 Nude Beige
I can't wait to test this on my lips. The texture is very creamy and smooth! This is definitely one of the best lipsticks that I have. It suits my dry and cracky lips and protects with SPF15? I like it! It's kinda expensive, selling in US for USD34.
