Does it Really Replace Eye Primer? Review: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

Some people use MAC Paint Pots as their eye primer, probably because it is sticky and can enhance the vibrancy of eyeshadows etc. I bought this because my beloved Bare Study Paint Pot dried out and I was in the market for another eyeshadow base.

Why do I need one since I already have a primer? Well… uh… I needed it because it makes eyeshadow appear even more vibrant than on bare skin or only with primer, and NYX Jumbo Pencils tend to crease on me if applied too thickly. MAC Paint Pots have a drier texture, and thus work better for my oily lids.

When Life Gives You Lemons, Grab A Peach Blush! Review: Catrice Defining Blush Life’s A Peach

Catrice Defining Blush Love and Peace 03

My first blush, given to me yonks ago by Jiu Mu Daforcena, was a peach-colored one from MAC, aptly called Peaches. The texture was almost the same, the color an exact match and the price? Just a third of Peaches.

Trust Me, You WILL Need This! Quick Review: Catrice Prime and Fine Anti-Red Base

Catrice Prime and Fine Anti Red Base

German ingenuity is at work. Affordability, check, efficacy, check. What am I talking about? Just Catrice’s Prime and Fine Anti Red Base. It’s the kind of thing that you do not expect it to work, but it does and it blows your socks off in the process too.

By now, everyone and their mother would already know that to neutralize red hues, you will need something green. I bought this because I have redness around my cheeks, but they do not make me look as if I’m blushing. The skin between my lips and my nose is also rather red because I have an eczema patch there that just refuses to go away. So I decided to get this primer when I saw it in Guardian at Sunway Pyramid, one of my favorite haunts.
