  1. you look absolutely gorgeous with or without make up. really love your site — and you’re an asian just like me so that’s a plus! :)

  2. you are very good at makeup, love this look, very glam. btw, will you make an another circle lens purchase soon? I would like to make a purchase with you. thanks!!

  3. how did you get your nose bridge to look so high/prominent? can you do a tutorial on structuring makeup with pics? it looks amazing!

  4. i’m loving the eyes! i always have trouble with rimming the entire eye for some reason. i think it’s probably my eyeshape? i will try this out though!

  5. Phyllis – where do you get the Taiwanese False Lashes from ?! Is there a website you can buy them? – You look divine by the way. I want your skin lol =) x

  6. Hi. I just wanted to say I stopped by because I was looking up swatches for Nars the multiples and found you on google. I absolutely love makeup even though I don’t have much time for it being a stay at home mom. I love even more, these types of beauty blogs. Oh how I love to look at all the makeup-such eyecandy! Of course, I am waaay behind buying this item but I don’t purchase much make up. Just my few items I use everyday. But when I do want to buy something, I always look up reviews and swatches. Great review, thanks for posting it. It did definitely help. You have an awesome blog. I love alot of your FOTD looks. Just gorgeous! You are very beautiful and your skin is just to die for. It’s absolutely flawless. Also, I can’t believe that you have completely clear undereyes. Not a circle or bag to be found. Lucky you.

  7. i dont think she lined her water line if you look at the second pic the eye to our left. i think it just looks like that because of her eye shape she is very lucky because she is so pretty!!

  8. I like this because your skin colour is similar to mine… It can be difficult finding nude lip colours for olive skin without looking like a ghost… Thumbs up!
