Review: Catrice Made to Stay Eyeshadow

When I was standing in front of Catrice products stand in Paloma, among all things prettily displayed - their cream eyeshadows caught my attention. This is because I have been hearing/ reading beauty gurus raved about Maybelline Color Tattoo and L'Oreal Infallible which sadly are not available here. So these are, in my opinion, good alternative for me to try cream eyeshadows.

My Thoughts
I bought 040 Metall of Honor - a bronzy- brown colour with gold shimmer and 070 Mauvie Star - a greyish lilac with lots of multi-colour shimmers.

After trying these cream eyeshadows, I prefer it more than powder eyeshadows. You know when you're in a rush (or lazy), you can just pat this on your lids, wear eyeliner then mascara (not in my case though) and you're done! The texture for these cream eyeshadows is however inconsistent; Metall of Honor is quite dry and Mauvie Star feels creamy and mousse-like.

Lasting power, no doubt it can last all day without creasing (even without an eye primer) LOVE! Although once I tap it on my lids, I need to blend quickly as it dries really fast! It does not smudge so its hard to blend once it sets on the lids. I have tried using eyeshadow brush and fingers and both works well making it wearable for day and night.

Overall, I love Metall of Honor although I wish it to be a little bit more creamy. Mauvie Star is not my favourite because of the colourful shimmers but the colour is pretty. Still, I want to try other colours from this range especially Lord of the Blings. If you would like to try cream eyeshadows, try these cream eyeshadows from Catrice (and Essence). It won't burn a hole in your pocket. ;)

Available from Paloma for B$5.90 each.


  1. I wish there are more usable colors. lol, not that I won't use the colors above, but I'd like to use for everyday's makeup.

    1. I use Metall of Honor to work :recently P But I use Essence's more (maybe because I bought them in lighter colours) and I like to use this when I go out at night too :D

  2. So they're the same like essence's? The texture. I own two but I rarely use them.

    The Maybelline Color Tattoos are gonna be released in June in Malaysia, that's what Sasa told me. But yeah, di Singapore ada udah.

    Just gonna wait XD

    1. Texture wise, I prefer Essence although after having them all for a while now, I realised that they dry rather quick. I like to use Essence for work just because I have them in lighter colour.

      I want to try Maybelline Color Tattoo~ Was thinking of getting them from Ebay :P

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
