    Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer | REVIEW and SWATCHES

    ACNE. It’s so weird that at the age of 32, it suddenly went onslaught and wrecked havoc on my face. I have, kept a relatively clear skin since I can remember. Until mid-last year when these annoying pustule-filled pimples popped up. I’ve tried almost everything to remove them (will tell that separately), but until then. A good concealer is needed to cover. That’s why today we’ll be reviewing the Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer (yes it says it’s for the undereye, but it’s so good you can use it on any part of your face).    Description Super Stay® Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer is a lightweight, full coverage liquid concealer.…

    Wish I’ve Tried Solstice Age Defense Sunscreen Earlier!

    #realtalk Whenever I pass by Watsons and browse around their aisles, I always spot Solstice Age Defense Sunscreen but choose to ignore it. For starters the pastel yellow tube didn’t speak out to me. Enough to purchase it. My bad. It’s good. Pretty good actually. It was one fine forgetful moment when I visited my grandparents, and I LEFT MY SUNSCREENS. Admittedly I was feeling “why would I buy when I have a whole lotta products in my house” . Couldn’t live without UV protection. I leave and breathe in sunblock. I was considering to get Biore but their sunscreens have been acting up on me giving me weird bumps and…

Because fragrances connect me to memories, and in moving on I’d like to forget (naks). Fragrances & Memories When we went to Singapore last year, I wanted to purchase a souvenir. Not just any random souvenir, but something to save that memory and beyond. A perfume. Scents are CHEAP in airports with lots of deals and gifts sets. So when I spotted the Prada Candy Gift Set for 95sgd (Set of 3 Scents), I never let go. Prada…
