FOTD Featuring Estée Lauder’s Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow 5-Colour Palette in Rebel Metal

Estée Lauder's Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow 5-Colour Palette in Rebel Metal

Estée Lauder’s eyeshadows are seriously improving by the day. Years ago, I can say quite honestly that their eyeshadow palettes are rubbish. The colour payoff was awful, the eyeshadows gritty and the lasting power …uh, what lasting power? Thankfully, the formula has changed dramatically over the years and it’s so much better now.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow 5-Colour Palette in Rebel Metal. I love neutral eyeshadows; browns, coppers and golds are right up my alley. What can I say, I’m boring like that and I love it!

Janey The Lady: Queen of the Couch

Janey The Lady: Queen of the Couch

It’s been a while since I blogged about Janey and I know that a lot of you are dog lovers as well so today, I figured it’s time to bring that pooch back on the blog to say hello.

For those of you who are new to the blog and aren’t aware of who Janey is, Tim and I adopted adopted her from the RSPCA last December. As she was sadly abandoned at the RSPCA, they have no idea what breed or age she was because she wasn’t microchipped and desexed. Tim and I are so glad to be able to give her her forever home. Sure she drives us absolutely up the wall from time to time but ah, we love the ol’ gal. :)

Read My Lips: Shanghai Suzy Matte Lipsticks

Shanghai Suzy Matte Lipsticks

I’m not typically a fan of matte lipsticks but I’ll make an exception with these beautiful Shanghai Suzy matte lipsticks because they sure are lovely. Matte lipsticks are usually quite drying on the lips and worse, they emphasise the fine lines of the lips. Not these Shanghai Suzy lippies; at least, not most of them.

Setting The Record Straight On Misconceptions About BB Creams

BB Creams

If you’ve been following my BB Creamology series, you’ll know that I’ve tried a lot of BB creams. In fact, I’ve tried more than what I’ve reviewed on the blog. I’ve tried Asian BB creams and I’ve tried Western BB creams. What I’m trying to say is, when it comes to BB creams, I’m not a n00b. :P

Today’s post is going to be a bit of a ranty one. I seldom get my knickers in a twist here on the blog but after reading one too many wrong information about BB creams, I knew I had to set the record straight. There are a lot of misconceptions about BB creams mainly as many of the mainstream Western brands have jumped on the BB bandwagon and you can tell that they’re very similar to each other. As one brand after another keep coming up with BB creams, it’s no wonder why people are getting sick of them.

Yet the funny thing is, we don’t get sick of brands coming up with more foundations yet we are of BB creams. Why is that? Everyone has their own reasons but I reckon it’s because a lot of them are mediocre at best. The thing is, not all BB creams are like that. Not all BB creams have lousy coverage. Not all BB creams leave the face looking like a grease-pot. Not all BB creams have crappy SPF. Not all BB creams are rubbish. In fact, I’ve tried some pretty damn good ones that are comparable to the best of foundations out there.

Here are some of the common misconceptions of BB creams and what I think about them.
