The easiest gifts to get a woman for any occasion be it birthdays or Christmas, is the perfume coffret sets that cosmetics companies put together in a value pack. Not only do you get a lovely looking gift, it is usually value for money as it comes with miniatures or body lotions in matching scents. It can be rather trite but unless a woman is allergic to alcohol, few women say no to a gift of scent.
Lancome’s perfume coffrets are out at the counters locally but I’m not eyeing any of them because I’ve got my eye on the VIRTUÔSE mascara set! Continue Reading ►
I have been doing an experiment lately with foundation. I’m trying to see which type of foundation suits me best and which I prefer to use. After much experimentation, I’ve found my answer.

There’s been some funkiness going on at My Women Stuff these couple of days for which I sincerely apologise. Posts and comments have been disappearing as quickly as limited edition cosmetics flying off the shelves.
I’m afraid the culprit is my server which has decided to misbehave and in doing so, it ate up my previous posts over the past couple of days. If anyone’s wondering, I swear a server is female Still, I’m in the process of getting the posts reinstated.
If you left a comment or left a comment between Saturday and Monday at the Majolica Majorca Giveaway post and do not notice your comment, please do leave another. I have a record of those who did take part in the last few days so even if I don’t see your new comment, I will place you in the draw anyway. But you might want to make sure I didn’t miss you.
To my new subscribers who are wondering, no, this is not normal! So sorry for the trouble and I’m hoping things stablise soon.

If there is one brand of cosmetics I wish would be brought here into Malaysia, its NYX Cosmetics. I previously reviewed the NYX eyeshadows and NYX blushes and in a nutshell, this inexpensive cosmetics brand is exceptional!
I had heard of the NYX Mosaic Powder for a while and had been tempted to get it too. But it was so hard to find anywhere that I eventually caved and got them on Ebay. I did later see them retailing in Singapore. The NYX Mosaic Powder Highlighter in 01 had been touted as the low end equivalent of Guerlain Meteorites highlighter powder. I had to see how well it fared. Continue Reading ►
