  1. Thanks!
    On the 1st pic, the bottom inner corner looks like a light shadow, is that the pollen highlight part? I couldnt find that color online. It’s nice!

  2. Yah I don’t really wear foundation unless it’s for a special occasion. Concealer + a thin layer of powder is good enough for me =)

  3. Do you recommend the mac 209 eyeliner brush for the fluidline? Im thinkin 17 bucks is quite much…is it that great you think? Thanks!

  4. Since pollen is basically gone, whats the next best available color like it from MAC to use? After reading a lot of the blogs, shimmering the inner and up to brow i can see really why its a must do!

  5. i’ve been trying to find the Mac your ladyship pigment, but alot of stores are sold out. what other pigment color would you recommend for highlighting that is similar? thanks!

  6. Hi Phyllis, I missed your last CP offer for your BB cream!! =( I was wondering around when were you starting to take orders for the Korean version of the BB cream?? I totally need some help for my skin!! It’s going CRAZY right now!!!

  7. Wooaw thank you for sharing this with us! I should try it on myself :p Could you do a breakdown to Britney spears make up in “I’m a slave for you” MV ? Thanks ^^
    Big up

  8. If you can’t find Pollen, try MAC’s Vanilla or Gold Dusk pigments. Vanilla’s a shimmery white with gold in it and Gold Dusk is a really pale shimmery gold.

    Vivian, I’m still selling samples of Your Ladyship. You can e-mail me at makeup_forlife@yahoo.com for more info.

  9. I use the exact same concealer under my eyes with only a light dusting of powder on top as well. However, I notice that usually after half a day, this concealer tends to set into creases around my eyes. Any tips on how this can be prevented? Thanks!

  10. You’re lenses looks very natural? Do you mind sharing the brand and color please? Also, which type of circle lenses in brow do you use?
