Tag: Wats in my bag & Award from Cambo Soup

I got tagged by Ena from Shanghainese Dumpling,on Whats in my bag, so here you are! This is my everyday working day.

I'm still loving this roomy big bag i got...

Here's the content (from left to right)

  1. my pinky Gucci Wallet (gift from my bro for last yr xmas...)

  2. Flowery coin pouch

  3. coin pouch (for my thumbdrive, swiss knife, access card, Ib token)

  4. Key pouch

  5. Camera

  6. Black Makeup pouch

  7. my gastric medi (i have weak gastric so its also a must have for me)

  8. OPI Avoplex hand cream in crispy apple flavor (luv applying cream to my hand, its small portable but moisturise powder so-so, BUT smells heavenly just like munching crispy apple)

  9. biotherm lip balm with peachy taste (this balm is just an OK product, as after long time it dries up your lip so i applied it thickly and reapply quite often)

  10. OPI Avoplex cuticle oil to go (i'm a nail freak, how can i let my nails go thirsty?)

  11. Pen

  12. name card holder

  13. flower mirror

  14. Itouch (i can't live without this)

  15. samsung dual card phone (without this i would have to carry two phone so its a saviour to me)

  16. Big shades (SG is really hot & sunny)

  17. Wet wipes & tissue

  18. Bills, notebook, letters (i'm the forgetful kind so i tend to tuck the bills inside my bag as i can constantly refer to them whenever i need to)

Ya i'm always catch carrying so many stuffs so a roomy bag is a must. Currently have not targetted on any yet.

wonder whats inside my pouch?

  1. Lotree compact (for touch-up, they are great for eye area)

  2. BE minerals foundation & veils (for touch-up, overall face as they are really light)

  3. Kevin Beautymaker Pu Pu Cheek (color really pigment... i luv it)

  4. Majolica eye palette (i always bring along the eye palette i use for the day for just in case)

  5. Kevin Beautymaker Aqua eye concealer (i use them for face concealer as they are too dry for eye area

  6. Kevin Beautymaker lip concealer (this conceal my lip frame naturally)

  7. Estee Lauder High Gloss in Honey (currently this is the gloss i luv, great match for earth color makeup)

  8. Silky Girl transparent shimmery gloss (this is a local Sg brand i think, on days i need an extra shimmers on my lips i will add this on and i think its really cheap)

  9. Kevin Beautymaker concealer pen (IMO its great for eye concealer as its fluid and easy to apply no dry up unlike the aqua eye concealer i had.)

I was awarded by Kalmo of Cambo Soup some days back. But i was rather late to post this up, so sorry haha, thanks you gals for all your loving to my blog. ever since i started blogging which is like from July this year, i met a lot of lovely gals and really learn a lot on makeup, skincare etc. And not to forget i made new friends thru the process.... THANK YOU GALS for your love!

BB Cream Review: Banila Co. Let me BeBe Cream SPF37

Thanks to Aichaku, i got to have sample packs from her. Banila Co is a korean brand which has really nice and sweet packaging.

Pic of sample pack i received.

Its in Nude shade, seems good enough to suit my fair skin.

Close-up pic of their bb cream

My face after moisturiser and nothing extra on them. (*pardon for those blemish marks as i had breakout few days back so i thought i would be better to prove them to you that they were good for coverage)

Overall: 7/10
My face after Banila BB Cream, they have medium coverage, nice scent and effective. Minimum touch-up too like the experience i had with Lotree, i notice by mid day, the cream seems to have blend in and becomes my skin (hope you understand what i mean). So when i look into the mirror, it seems like i have flawless skin LOL. (this happen when i'm in outdoor environment)
Its makes my face dry as i'm slogging working long hours in air-conditioned office environment. Cheek area near the nose turns cakey & flaky in office environment.
So i concluded that this BB cream is more suitable for outdoor use as its more making my face dry in air-conditioned environment. But i tend to stay indoor more often.

Skin Care Review: Vichy Normaderm Refine Total Pore Resurfacing Essence

I bought this product as i was so attracted by its advertisement. Who doesn't want to have polish skin without pores and smooth like egg. I do so this is another investment i made.

Its in watery cream formula, matt to touch when apply so you will not have the kind of greasy feel. This is very lightly scented, normal cosmetic smell i would say as i'm not good in telling between fragrance. I experiment this product for 1 month so as to show you gals the result its has. I would say it did help but i expect more. I do feel that pore got smaller, the bumps that i have on my skin subsides a bit.

During the experiment, i want to be fair so this is the only product i use after cleasning routine. except for eye cream..haha I will still continue to use and monitor the progress and update accordingly until it runs out but will have to use together with my toner & moisturiser as my skin are too thristy for a drink.

Before using the product

Pic after using the product, this was taken early in the morning straight after cleansing without any moisturiser etc. i'm not sure if the lighting affect the pic too much.

Here's how the product looks like:

I was so attracted when it mentioned that results proven on ASIAN SKIN.

Mascara Review 3: Too Faced Lash Injection Pin Point

I was pretty curious about how this mascara is gonna work so here's the review:
(Extracted from
What it is:
An extreme defining, volumizing, and lengthening mascara.

What it does:
Based on the world famous Lash Injection formula, Too Faced Lash Injection Pinpoint Mascara targets each lash to create the dramatically long, extremely defined, and separated lashes of your dreams! Like a mascara architect, Lash Injection Pinpoint's exclusive 3D polymers build waterproof tubes around each lash that expand and stretch far, far beyond the natural lash while the sleek pinpoint precision brush separates and curls for the most divinely detailed, healthy lash look imaginable. Like paraffin dip treatments, moisture is locked into the lash by each tube, and lashes stay conditioned and hydrated.

What else you need to know:
Easily removable with the Lash Injection Antidote eye makeup remover or soap and warm water, this amazing mascara doesn't dissolve and smudge like any ordinary mascara. The iconic waterproof formula won't melt, flake, smear or come off until you take it off—and then it comes off in tiny tubes, like little lash socks!
I got mine in Pitch Black Mini Shade.
Recap on how the brush looks like:
The label promises Extreme Defining, Volume & Lengthening.

See how skinny this brush is!
My Naked lash

Naked lash in another angle

My lashes with TooFaced Lash Injection & Shiseido Mascara.

No clumps
Overall: 8.5/10
I was really amazed by the result of this skinny look brush. This really gives volume and length. But the formula seems a bit thick so at 2 coats its like a bit too thick to carry on. Luv the brush as its really thin and can reach out to the inner corner lashes. The mascara really makes my lashes stays curl, look at my pic 1 done lashes, you can compare to the Dior or Buxom mascara done look and you will realise its pretty hard to see my lash even with mascara on.
One thing i hate this mascara is the smell, the chemical smell was too overwhelming. Imagine holding my breath during the application. TooFaced, can you guys do something to the smell? I would definitely get this in full size if they are able to do something with the smell.
Additional Review on this mascara:
I simply luv the result as the curl staying power lasted until night which was approx 10 hours of wear. It was also a breeze removing them, as i was using my usual oil cleanser. Just some gentle rubbing they came off.. I would add 0.5 points more to the rating as it deserve minus the scent haha

Mascara Review 2: BE Buxom Lash

As i promised, here the review:

(Extract from Sephora on the product)
Buxom Lash What it is : A paraben-free, lash-volumizing mascara.
What it does:Bare Escentuals Buxom® Lash Mascara - Blackest Black holds the style of your lashes for a continuous 12 hours with no flakiness. The silky, vitamin-rich formula darkens, lengthens, and thickens from root to tip without ever clumping. Its patented, hourglass-shaped brush is designed to lift and separate every lash while delivering the perfect amount of antioxidant-rich mascara needed for bigger, fuller lashes.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes- Phthalates
What else you need to know: It Intensely volumizes lashes up to 300%.
just a recap on how its brush looks like. Its a thick brush with have a dip in design in the middle. The bristles are in uneven teething shape and no signs of fibres on them.

This is what my naked lashes look like before application

My naked lashes in another view
Heres the after result using BE Buxom Lash,
Don't be mistaken by this pic, there is actually no clumps.
Look below:
My lashes seems more to volumize than lengthen. The formula makes my lashes look thicker.
Overall rating for this mascara is 8/10
As it lives up to its name for volumising, application for inwards lashes are quite tough as you can see the brush is really thick, i don't wana risk staining my lids, which i did look at my eyelid. Absolutely no clumping which is great and due to the brush design my not many lashes are seperated and looks more fuller. If only their tip are sharper or smaller its would be able to reach out to my little lashes at the corner.
