Another Tony Moly product that I’ve been using for a few months is the ‘Backstage gel eyeliner’. I tried the black one and love it. It comes in a small pot with a retractable brush screwed on top of the lid.
The gel is very pigmented and you don’t really need a lot of product. It is also very smooth to apply and is quite long lasting. I use it 8-9 hours everyday and it doesn’t smudge. I just adore this product. So much so I ordered a second pot in the colour of ‘Choco brown’. I like the black one better.
I bought these through an ebay seller located in South Korea. Depending on the seller there, one pot shouldn’t cost more than $12 – $13. Online shopping rocks! I get most of my gadgets to make up online. (Now even thinking of checking out pest control supplies online. )
I just pre-ordered the “Kindle fire HD” 7 inch tablet as soon as I found out that Amazon will be shipping to a few more countries. I love my basic kindle but it sure would be fun to read books with illustrations or comics in colour.
I have to admit that I am a little apprehensive about ordering online instead of just going to a shop (when it’s available) to buy, because of possible issues that may arise. If it is bought locally I may get someone to help immediately like a gadget and appliance service. But since I have never really had any problems with gadgets I bought online so I’m taking risk (as some of my friends would call it). Furthermore, I’m purchasing from a trustworthy site like Amazon.
I simply can’t wait for the kindle arrive in my hands!

I must admit that this blog has turned into a makeup product review blog. I’ve been trying a few new products lately. One of them being the ‘Essence colour arts’ eye base/primer.
I picked it up at a local drugstore and has been using it for about 2-3 weeks now. It has a gel like texture and gives a tacky feeling when you apply it on your skin. The tackiness enhanced the pigment of the eyeshadow in my opinion but makes it difficult to blend the eyeshadows. On an ordinary work day I leave it on for 10 – 11 hours, I can say I am satisfied with the long lastingness though it did create a little crease on my lid if I look closer.
So my verdict, will I buy it again – most probably not.
Do I recommend it? for the price and long lastingness… Yes.

I was reading the reviews on floyd rose tremolo from musicians friend when I remembered that I wanted to review another product from Skinfood which I have been using for a bit more than a month now. It’s the Skinfood’s red orange makeup matte finish.
The product comes in two types – matte and glossy finish. I decided to try the matte at first and I may go for the glossy one next.
It comes in an 80ml bottle and cost about 10 -14 usd depending on where you order them. I’ve been using it almost everyday and I’ve only used up about 1/3 of the bottle.
Now whether it works to keep my makeup long lasting. Well, I can say I am pretty much satisfied that it did keep my makeup looking fresh longer compared to not having it on at all. Though having a rather dry skin type, it was not such a good idea to have gotten the matte one instead of the glossy.
Will I buy it again? The glossy one, not the matte.
Worth it? I think so.

Dimples that many people find cute are actually a defect. Some people see bowlegs are sexy. While others see snaggled/crooked teeth as cute or beautiful.
The teeth needs to be prepared using a special powder and a mold that you can use to fit on your teeth to customize it to the shape of your teeth. Then the teeth is trimmed, stick on to the incisors and voila! a cute snaggle teeth look in an instant.
Kind of weird, but oh well… beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.
