NARS Blush in Dolce Vita

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I blogged, I’m currently back in my hometown and about to start my much needed holiday in 2 days! Tho I miss Sydney very much, I’m glad I can escape from the cold winter weather. I brought a couple of new items with me, one of them is NARS Blush in Dolce vita.


NARS describe Dolce vita as matte dusty rose. It looks a bit dark compare to my other blushes which mostly coral shade. But I love how pigmented this blush is and it doesn’t look very dark in my skin.





For above FOTD; other than NARS Dolce Vita blush, I also use Tom Ford Golden Mink, Chanel Les Beiges Powder #30.

Pardon me for the sloppy false lashes, I hardly use false lashes these days :p

If you live in Australia, you can purchase NARS blush from Mecca Cosmectica for AUD45.

Thanks for reading!

July Empties!



Hello Everyone!

It’s been two months since I wrote my last “empties” post. I didn’t have much finished products last month so I thought I will just wait until the next month where I would have more finished product. So here it is, I am going to write a short review on the products which I finished in the last two months.

1. Bifesta Eye Make Up Remover

This make up remover works wonderfully to swipe away my eye makeup. It’s a very effective product to remove eyeshadow or even waterproof eyeliner. I love how this products easily cleans up my eye make up. It is priced reasonably at below $15 (I couldn’t remember the exact price).

Will I repurchase this again? Definitely

2. The Body Shop Olive Scrub

I simply love this scrub because of its texture. It’s very effective to remove dead skin cells. I have been using this since my high school time and still enjoy using it until now. My skin feels so smooth after I applied this scrub.

Will I repurchase this again? Definitely

3. L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil

Recently I have reviewed this product hereI mentioned how much I love the product in the review post on this product. It makes my hair feels very smooth without making it feel sticky. I usually use 3 pumps after I washed my hair and I can feel how smooth my hair feel after applying this oil. I also love the smell this product has; it’s a mixture of macadamia and some flowers.

Will I repurchase this again? Definitely

4. No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry / Very Dry 

I purchased this product when I was in the UK last January. I had a very dry skin there and my usual skincare routine were not creamy enough to combat the cold weather that dries my skin. I bought this product from Boots to help me moisturize my skin.

This cream has a thicker consistency and it is packed with SPF 15. It helps me to protect my skin from being dry for few hours in the cold weather and I need to reapply this cream after that. In Singapore, where the weather is humid, this cream can last for a longer hour.

Will I repurchase this again? Maybe

5. The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner

Before I apply any makeup, usually I will cleanse my face with toner. This Seaweed Clarifying Toner works well for people with combination skin. I have been loving this product for long time but recently I feel that it’s a bit drying for my cheek area. I still like this product but currently I am trying some other products that might work better for me.

Will I repurchase this again? Maybe 


Yay that I have finished all these products. I hope I will have sufficient product to post next month, so we’ll see ;)

YSL Blush Radiance #9



Hi all,

Yves Saint Laurent Makeup Fall Collection 2013 consists of few new products. For the blush, YSL is releasing two new shades and one of them is YSL Blush Radiance #9 Poppy Coral. I am going to talk briefly on what I think of this product.





Some of you might notice that this blush comes in a bigger packaging compared to the normal YSL Blush packaging. The normal YSL packaging is smaller than this one. The size of this blush packaging is the same as the eyeshadow quad packaging. The packaging comes in a golden metal case that’s prone to finger prints. The size is handy and it comes with a small brush too.


Shade & Texture:

YSL Blush Radiance #9 Poppy Coral has two kinds of texture; matte and shimmery. The coral shade is very nice and it doesn’t look orange-y to me. I personally not a big fan of coral shades but I am really in love with this shade as it gives me a very nice sun kissed glow. Somehow I can see a hint of soft pink in this blush when swatched. You can see the swatch of this product below.

You can choose to wear the matte shade alone or the shimmery shade alone, or mix it all together. The shimmer in this blush is very nice; it’s not too much at all. For those of you who dislike shimmer, you need not to worry about the shimmer in this blush. It doesn’t make you look like glitter bomb at all.

The pigmentation of this blush is not the best. The color shows up on my skin after I layer it twice. What I like most about this blush is the buttery and smooth texture. This blush feels very soft and it blends very nicely. I love the powdery feeling it has.





Below is the swatch of YSL Blush #9 Poppy Coral when it is mixed



 As you can see,  Poppy Coral has a mixture of pink undertone. On my opinion, this blush is suitable to almost every skin tone. It blends very well into the skin and it stays nicely for about 5 hours before it starts fading.


Final Thought:

YSL Blush Radiance in poppy coral meets my expectation of a good blush. The texture is so soft and smooth. I would recommend this to ladies who are looking for a nice everyday blush; you won’t go wrong with this blush.

Tom Ford Illuminating Cheek Color in Blush Guilt

For Summer 2013, Tom Ford releases many beautiful products in limited pieces.This collection, Tom Ford emphasizes on radiance on highlighting. I picked Tom Ford Illuminating Cheek Color in Blush Guilt from this collection. It looks so interesting as this is my first blush/highlighter in a stick form. Thanks to Jacqueline from MyBeautyHoard for helping me to get it :) IMG_5259


Illuminating cheek color is a very sheer creme blush in a stick form. Blush guilt is very sheer on me to be used as a blush so I usually use this as a highlighter underneath my setting powder to give me that refreshed look. Although this is very sheer, you can always build it u to get a deeper shade. I usually use two layers of Blush guilt after my foundation routine and set it up with powder. Or else, I will use my finger to dab this product lightly and apply it onto my skin for a finishing touch after my setting powder.





Personally, I don’t feel that this product makes my face oily. My cheek is usually normal or at certain times it could be dry. This product enhances the glow from my skin. It lasts on my skin for only about 4 hours and it starts to disappears after that. The staying power is not as good as what I would expect. I would expect that it could last for at least 6 hours.


Swatched Heavily






Swatched Lightly on the Left – Heavily on the right

As you can see in the swatch below, Blush Guilt is a very sheer pink shade. I personally would only use this as a highlighter and it would be too sheer for me to be used as a blush.
