Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

Since you ladies loved the Sleek I-Divine Palette in Original that I raved about, here are more Sleek I-Divine Palettes for you =) I will be giving away one free Sleek I-Divine Palette in Chaos shortly so remember to check back for details on the giveaway!

Chaos
Although I have always been a shimmery/metallic eyeshadow kind of girl, I really like this palette. It contains twelve bright, matte eyeshadows in both warm and cool shades that will work on light and dark skin tones. Pigmentation-wise, some colors tend to be better than the rest but they all showed up decently on my NC30 skin. All in all, it is a cute palette with some nice colors and if you are looking to try out mattes, definitely check it out!


You all know how much I *loved* my Skin Food Mushroom BB cream but lately, I can’t seem to get my hands off my new Shills Super Magic BB Cream (Cherry Blossom edition).

Unlike most BB creams, the Shills Super Magic BB Cream (Cherry Blossom edition) is a 6-in-1 BB cream that is made in Taiwan. It offers protection against free radicals, evens out skin tone, brightens the skin, controls oil, moisturizes and conceals. It is also one of the best selling BB creams in Asia and is always featured in super popular TV show 女人我最大.

The Shill BB cream comes in a 50ml tube and the main ingredients are Gingko, Green Tea and Vitamin C. Like the Skin Food BB creams, you can use it alone for an au naturale look or underneath foundation if you require more coverage.

The Multiple has always been one of the cult products in the beauty industry and now NARS has combined two Multiples in a compact to give you the Multiple Duo ($45) that is available only for a limited period of time.

Encased in the NARS signature black, mirrored compact about the size of the Holiday eyeshadow palette (which I <3 btw), the Multiple Duo can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks. All colors are super lightweight, great to blend and create such a nice, subtle glow to the face.

I have Orgasm/South Beach, which consists of a shimmery peachy pink paired with a shimmery apricot. While Orgasm looks great as a blush on my NC30 skin, I find South Beach to be the winner in this pair. It looks great as a wash on the eyelids, on the hollows of the cheeks for just the right amount of contouring and along the bridge of the nose as a highlighter.
