Reviews & Food Porn :)

Skin Food Buckwheat Loose Powder
Here is the review that Blair has requested... sorry for the delay, Blair.. :)


Description (from http://eng.theskinfood.com/):
This loose powder with its soft, fine particles offers a bloomingly radiant, flawless finish.
Buckwheat oil creates incredibly transparent, shine-free skin tone, with silky-smooth texture.
* Use:
After foundation, dap gently in following order: forehead→eyelids→cheeks→lips.
Press remaining residue gently under eyes.




My thought:
I love the packaging, but it's kinda bulky so it's not really convenient to bring it along... the texture is really smooth so it's easy to apply with. and the scent is really nice.. this loose powder doesn't really have much coverage but the oil-control is really good.. there's a big difference between when i'm using this loose powder and when i'm not.. my face is less oily with this loose powder..

Rating: 4.5/5
Repurchase: Yes! i love this even if it's my first ever loose powder!


YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara

Description (from http://www.yslbeautyus.com/):
An intense look in a single stroke with our must-have industry leading mascara.

The secret? The triple-film complex. A coating film for intensity, a conditioning film for curve, a fixing film for long-lasting effectiveness. Even the brush applicator combines nylon fibers of varying diameters for volume enhancement as never before.

My thought:
When i first open the cap, i immediately fell in love with the scent.. the scent is really nice.. and even when i've applied it on my lashes, it's still there.. but it's kinda hard to apply, or probably it's just me cause i don't usually use mascara.. although it claims for the volume effect, it doesn't really volume up my lashes, instead it does good on lengthening.. here's how it looks on my eye (sorry for the crap picture, i've tried to take it on different ways but i still don't know how to take a nice picture of my eyes :p)

Rating: 4/5 (because of the scent and the lengthening effect!)


Cover Girl LashBlast Volume Blasting Waterproof Mascara

Description (from http://www.covergirl.com/):
Get a blast of bold, volumized lashes - rain or shine! LashBlast's patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max-out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big lash look.
- Instant volume and fullness
- Resists water and smudging
- Hypoallergenic and suitable for lens wearers

My thought:
I got this from Nic :) it's kinda bulky but it's easier for me to hold than the YSL mascara.. and it's easy to apply.. as it claims it doesn't smudge easily and really good on volumizing lashes.. my eye lashes are thicker with this.. but the only thing that bugs me is it's kinda hard to apply on the lashes in the corner of my eyes..
here's how it looks on my eye lashes:

Rating: 4/5


Comparison between YSL and CG mascara:

Which one do you think is better? i like the volumizing effect from CG but also like the lengthening effect from YSL..

Aw thank you so much :) I didn't think my pics were great.. hehe mineral foundation is my favorite- the most natural coverage! hmm I think I like the YSL mascara just because it's lengthening and not as clumpy :P I want some of that foood!

I prefer volume over length because of my super thin lashes so I definitely like CG more than YSL! plus CG is so cheap hehe

ooh yum...those fried wontons look yummy!

i like CG for the density it builds on my lashes... YSL wins for me cause of the pretty packaging and the fact that it smells nice is already a big plus point. I really don't like mascaras that smell awful or like plastic ..

I use mineral foundations so I love powders. I've never used Lashblast My girlfriend loves it. I use Lancome's Hypnose. It makes my lashes very long and full.
