Asian Chinese female from Singapore, a small island city-state in Southeast Asia.
I love makeup!! I like hoarding.. er collecting makeup. I use mostly mineral makeup, but I have a HUGE soft spot for palettes, especially all-in combi palettes.
Skin issues: dehydrated yet oily, breaks out frequently. Tiny red acne scars, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores on my forehead, nose and sides of nose. AND eyebags and dark circles...
Products I avoid / cannot use :
Inniskillin ice wine

sun/wind/rain-proof tent with cushioned 'flooring'
|My Beauty Secret:||
drinking coffee in the morning will reduce puffy eyebags.
I need at least 30 mins to "cover up" for the office... to get glam, probably at least half a day...
My eyes are really small and I have monolids but I spend the most time on eye make up.
|My Celebrity Look-a-like:||
I like the refreshing sweet orange scent. And I think it really made my pores smaller. It can double up as a make-up setting spritz too.
I have dark circles and huge undereye bags. I apply the contour gel only in the morning. It works by tightening the eye bags and lightening the dark circles, so much that I only need a light dusting of peach-tone concealer to even out my skin tone around the eyes before applying my foundation. Unfortunately, it doesn't "cure" the problems... if I stop using the gel for a few days, my dark circles and eye bags will be back to haunt me, and no amount of concealer will work!
I had really short and straight lashes -- typical of Asian eyes. I had tried numerous brands of mascara - Lancome, Dior, L'oreal, Maybelline etc, but none works the way this one does. It is perspiration, oil, tear and water proof. I only had to apply one coat after curling and each of my lashes is lengthened dramatically. It also holds the curl. It doesn't clump too. Downside is that it is only available in one color - black, and it doesn't add much volume. Removing it is not so easy -- so far, the only one that worked for me was L'oreal lip & eye makeup remover for waterproof makeup. p/s Majolica Majorca is a drugstore brand by Shiseido.
