    Silica as Foundation Primer

    I just wanted to ask, because I read somewhere that silica should be used in moderation as make-up. Currently, I'm using Silica powder (from Pure Luxe) as my foundation primer. I think it's amazing because it really keeps the oiliness of my face in check, but I'm wondering if there may be any...

    The secret to wearing red lipstick

    So I bought this Shu Uemura fire engine red lipstick on a whim because I found it looked gorgeous on the MA who was assisting me with my skincare purchase. But since then, I haven't the slightest idea how I was going to use this beautiful shade without looking overpowering... and to work, no...

    I so want to go swimming again...

    I love going to the beach or just hanging out at the poolside at my boyfriend's condo. Unfortunately, I haven't been doing this much lately because it's raining like crazy everyday!

    I'm so pissed off, I'm literally in tears over this.

    What do you do when your man is acting like a serious dickwad? My boyfriend is getting into one of these "periods" again where he's picking a fight with me practically every day. Last Monday it was because I didn't tell him I was going home already (what the fuck is the point if I don't live...

    Jeans buying help

    Hi everyone, I'm shopping on for some Citizens of Humanity jeans because I'm so sick of cheap jeans (not enough room for my ass, stiff denim, faulty buttons, etc etc) My problem: I don't think there's any jeans of this brand here in Singapore so I can't really just fit at...

    Eye Primer for Mineral Eyeshadow

    I'd just like to know what eye primer you guys are using (if any) to make the mineral eyeshadows stick. I just recently received my Pure Luxe samples and the fallout was crazy even though I used UDPP, did my best to shake out excess powder, used patting motions to apply, etc. It was so bad I...

    Face Architect Foundation

    Has anyone tried this yet? I bought one on impulse recently, and the quality is really nice, but I don't know how to use it so as to "sculpt" my face, which is the main purpose of the foundation anyway. If anyone's used it, please give some tips on how to maximize the features of this foundation.

    Question about MUA Swapping

    I'm really new to swapping because I don't really like parting with my make-up, especially new ones, but I tried it out on Make Up Alley for a few swaps. One of the things I swapped for was a Stereo Rose MSF, which the swapper gave in exchange for 3 brand new MAC brushes totaling to about $50+...
