I am a skincare junkie. There, said it. But I’m a junkie within reason (I hope!) in that I usually go with brands and products I trust, and that usually comes with my previous experiences with it. But there’s one skincare product I never quite got the hang of and that’s eye cream.

Whenever I get asked which eye cream I recommend, I’m stumped simply because I hardly use any. I know I should – age isn’t kind to the delicate skin around the eyes – but I’m just bad at it. Over the years, I’ve stuck primarily to the Estee Lauder ANR Eye Cream because it’s light and it’s familiar. But even then, I’ve been tardy about it.

Until now.

Oh boy, you guys aren’t going to like this, but I’ve now found an eye cream that I’m happy to use twice a day, and have been, for the past 3 months icon biggrin I love the Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Eye Creme; my wallet hates it

The eye cream that has me hooked is the Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Eye Creme, a product from the Dior Prestige range of skincare. And you know what that means right? Yes, it’s expensive. Make no mistake!

I’d been curious about the Dior Prestige line for a long time, since I knew that the Capture Totale range works well for my skin so some time last year, when I was passing through duty free, I picked up a set of Dior Prestige skincare.

The Prestige skincare range of Dior is a premium range of skincare targeted at anti-aging, which they say is formulated for delicate skin and is infused with the essence and vitality of Rose Granville, a species of rose grown by Dior and is said to have twice the cellular vitality of a regular rose. The nectar or Rose Granville is used in the Dior Prestige range and soothes and repairs micro-inflammations in skin that causes skin aging, revitalizes and regenerates skin and protects skin.

Mumbo jumbo aside, it smells incredibly of fresh, soft rose petals. If you love the scent of roses, you will fall head over heels for this range. I’m less of a fan of rose scents so I can’t say that it sits well with me, but from the efficacy point of view, I love this eye cream. Love! icon biggrin I love the Dior Prestige Satin Revitalizing Eye Creme; my wallet hates it

Tarte Cosmetics, in case some of you didn’t already know, is now available here in Malaysia at Sephora stores. I like the brand. At least, most of what I’ve tried. Their famed Amazonian Clay blushes are lovely even if I don’t think their asking prices very lovely and I have a couple of eyeshadow palettes that I like too. They are however limited edition pieces so I didn’t see merit in telling you about them.

However, one of the most popular items in the Tarte Cosmetics arsenal is their LipSurgence lip tints or lip crayons that come in various textures. Yes, lip crayons again icon biggrin These Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Luster Tints pack some Fever ish shine

About 1.5 years ago, before the brand was available here, I had some gift sets shipped in as gifts for friends and among them was a set of the Tarte LipSurgence lip tints. I gave most of them away, but I kept one for myself – the Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster Tint in Fever – a red. Was there any doubt why? icon razz These Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Luster Tints pack some Fever ish shine

I never really thought to write a review because, heck! We couldn’t get it here back then could we? But since we now can, I thought I’d just share my thoughts on my sole experience with a Tarte lip crayon. Well, let’s just say I’m not impressed enough to buy another icon razz These Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Luster Tints pack some Fever ish shine

I’d never heard of a “wardrobe malfunction” until a few years ago. Does anyone else remember that epic half time performance at the Super Bowl with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake? Anyone? icon biggrin Your Say: Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction?

It was during the performance that Janet Jackson’s right boob was inexplicably (or as they said accidentally) exposed, something which was later attributed to a “wardrobe malfunction”, and voila! A phrase was coined icon biggrin Your Say: Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction?

Alright so perhaps most of us would not have had something that dramatic happen to us in our daily lives but I’m quite sure that we’ve had our wardrobe malfunction one way or another, when we least expect it and when we least want it to. I cannot possibly be alone in this right?! icon razz Your Say: Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction?

I don’t always ‘set’ my makeup or foundations in a true sense on a daily basis. On most days, I finish off with the Guerlain Meteorites illuminating powders that for me act somewhat as a ‘setting powder’ but on days when I really want my makeup to last for as long as it possibly can, I turn to this white powder that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with since the day it came home with me from the NARS store.

This NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder was the very first item I bought from our NARS store here at Pavilion KL and it was after reading a lot of raves for this product. I couldn’t quite decide between the loose or pressed versions but as I personally prefer using loose powder to pressed, this is what I opted for.

What this very popular white powder is supposed to do, is set foundation for a smooth finish while softening the appearance of any lines on your face. It looks a scary white in the pot, but applies translucent, without any shimmer or glitter on the skin.

But what I love so much about this is just how impressive my makeup looks after a whole day!
