Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color Twilight, Angel and Immortal

I am in love with these! Creamy, crease proof and smudgeproof, they are very easy to use. I use my fingers to blend. They do dry down fast, so work quickly with your fingers. They are also very easy to carry around.

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms: Bitch Perfect, Penelope Pink and So Marilyn

These are so cute especially when I received it as a present, thanks Pammie. But at USD $39, it isn't worth it at all. Cuteness does not makeup for the lack of product because these things are tiny. They should have added two more colours to make this kit more worthwhile.

I was apprehensive using Bitch Perfect and Penelope Pink because they look too nude for me. But with a layer of Make Up For Ever lip liner in 14C under, Bitch Perfect became a very nice wearable shade. Very feminine.

Bitch Perfect

So Marilyn

The lipsticks are creamy and opaque. They don't feel moisturising, neither are they drying. Not sure why but wearing So Marilyn made my lips peel, could be a one off thing. Do they make me curious enough to want to get Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks? Nope.

Suqqu 2015 Christmas Makeup Kit A

This Set consists of Eye Color Palette Ex-03 Aosaori, Ex-02 Gel Eyeliner Pencil, 50ml eye makeup remover and pouch. I bought this sole for the eye palette, I wished they added more useful things in the kit instead. I would have gladly traded the eye makeup remover,clutch and eye liner for a mini lipstick instead.

Ex-02 Gel Eyeliner Pencil is a deep navy blue colour. I am impressed it because it is relatively long lasting as compared to all the eye pencils I have ever owned. Unfortunately it is dry as the Sahara and drags across my lids. I hate that.

Love the palette though. Excellent quality in which Suqqu is known for.

Addiction Eyeshadow Brown Beach 56, Cry Baby 80, Taxi Driver 82, Colour Purple 95

Addiction did a rehaul of their eye shadows this year. They all come in a clear plastic casing instead of the usual black casing and some eyeshadow shades have been removed. Bu there are a total of 99 shades available. It makes choosing just a few shades really difficult. Addiction by the way makes excellent neutrals.

Top to bottom: Colour Purple (metallic), Cry Baby (pearl), Taxi Driver (pearl) and Brown Beach (matte)

Addiction Lip Crayon Rose Petal 002

It is difficult visiting an Addiction counter without trying to bring the whole store back with me. 

Can I eat this mommy?

Retractable lip pencil that does not retract all the way down.

Pretty blue based pink shade. Creamy matte with a little shine. Best to prep lips with balm before applying. Unscented. It is a little dying, I always find that my lips are peeling by the end of the day but it does not stop me from loving the shade.

NARS Audacious Lipstick Charlotte and Natalie

Hefty metal casing with magnetic closure.

Outrageously creamy and opaque although it can be slightly drying on my lips. I need to wear lip balm to prep my lips. Long lasting but leaves a stain on my lips after wear. A little more difficult to remove as compared to my other lipsticks.

My advice is to go for high impact colours. SGD $44. $38.20 at Changi DFS.
