August 2014 Bellabox: Review

*Sponsored Post*

The weather has been really crazy lately with the scorching sun isn’t it? Well, this month’s Bellabox came just in time for me! Time to immerse into the summer frenzy with August’s Bellabox themed Summer Fresh. The beauty goodies in this month’s box are really substantial, so much so that the beauty box came in a paper bag instead because there were literally no space to pack some of the items inside the blue polka-dotted box!

Tarte Rainforest After Dark: Review & Swatches

Hello hello! 🙂 Ever wanted just one palette that can complete your entire makeup? I have just the thing you are looking for!

It’s the Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette!

NARS: Dual Intensity Eyeshadows Review & Swatches

Double or nothing.

Indeed, these “mesmerizing new Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows feature a luxuriously smooth transformative texture. Twelve ready-to-wear and rebelliously romantic sophisticated shades to express a riveting range of eye drama. Go both ways.”

Picked 2 out of 12 eyeshadows from the recent TANGS Summer Rebates and I must say that I am in love with my first NARS products!

Clarisonic: Deep Pore Decongesting Solution Review & Thoughts

You know those days when you pile up heavy makeup and you just want the best results in removing them from your face at the end of the day? I personally experience a difficulty in cleansing my face totally from my makeup. Usually, I would go through my heavy makeup with my trusty shu uemura POREfinist Anti-Shine Fresh Cleansing Oil as it does such an awesome job in melting all my makeup, including waterproof mascara and eyeliner! However, I always feel that it’s not enough because I still regularly get a few pimples popping out here and there.

I was lucky enough to get to try the Clarisonic for the first time (courtesy of my colleague from Clarisonic SG), and so this is going to be a review on the Clarisonic Mia 2, a comparison of the sensitive and deep pore brush heads as well as my thoughts on the skincare products from the NEW Deep Pore Decongesting Solution range. For a Clarisonic user for the first time, I was impressed.

So, what is it?
