Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Introducing the newly launched Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.It comes in 16 different colors which varies from brown(should I call it brown or nude) to red to pinkish color and why even a whitish color is available.

The packaging comes in a purple like tube box as shown in the photo and below on the box,the shade will be written on it so always make sure you check the shade inside and out before purchasing it.One thing I like about this is that the color shown is what that actually comes up when applied on the lips.

It is enriched with Jojoba oil,Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil which ensures a smooth application.

Color 69 UD 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

I purchased the color 69 as I wanted to match it with my NYX Matte lipstick color. 

I got to say I am a beginner in this and this was my first time applying a lip liner.I was really worried that I won't be able to use it on my lips.While applying,my hands did shiver but somehow I managed to draw the outline of my lips accurately and I even managed to apply the lipstick after this.

If I usually just use my NYX Matter lipstick on my lips even with lip balm,after few hours my lips tends to get dry but when I used it with Urban Decay's Lip Pencil,my lips was thoroughly kept moisturised and hydrated.

I wore this for a party that I attended & I was surprised that it lasted me for around 5hours though it did transfer a bit to the cup when I took a sip.

Price : SGD 34/- (from Sephora Singapore)


- Easy to apply
- Does not pull at the lips when applying
- Creamy
- Hydrating & Moisturising
- Lips was not feeling dried at all


- Expensive

Final Verdict : Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil color 69 is a definite must have in your vanity pouch.

P.S. You can get it from this website if you cannot find it in your country or if it is not launched in your country yet.

NYX Jumbo Pencils

NYX was a brand I never knew that existed till I entered into cherryculture website.I saw the Jumbo Pencils and decided to read some reviews about them before buying.It is always best to read reviews before buying.

NYX Jumbo Pencil has 32 amazing colors to chose from though it is tempting to buy all 32 of them,I boughly only two of them : Milky White & Black Bean with the sharperner.

Left to Right Side : Milky White - Black Bean - Sharperner

Description :

In my own words,it can be used as eyeliner,eyeshadow or applied to the inner crease to brighten up your eyes or to make it look bigger. 

These pencils are a must have in your makeup for simple outings,office use or smokey effects for parties to glam up.

My Experience :

Milky white is a creamy transparent colors which can be layered up to make your eyes looks fresher and bigger.When applied to eyes,it melts right into your eyes and disappears totally.I have not used them as eyeshadow stand alone so I cannot comment on it as of yet.

If you want your eyeshadow to look more intensified, apply your eyeshadow primer (like UD,Too Faced Insurance) then apply this Milky White then your eyeshadow & most of the colors will show up pretty well.Not only that but for oily lids,the eyeshadow color stays for long time as well..It did work for my oily lids and stayed up for mostly 8hours.

I also used this Milky White as eyeliner.I loved how easily it glided onto my eyes.Only disappointment is that it does not stay as long as expected.It only lasted 1hour on my lids though it did not completely disappear.There will be a before and after photo of this when I use it next time.

As for Black Bean,it is a intensify black color that is great for smokey effects.

Price : USD 4.50 (Cherry culture is having a discount going on so go grab them right away.Price after discount : USD 3.50)

  • Can be used as eyeliner 
  • Layers up pretty well
  • 32 colors to chose from


  • Not long lasting for eyeliner especially oily lid girls

My First Empties

Been a makeup hoarder is not easy as whenever you see a new product coming up & falling head and heels over that product ,you wont be able to resist but to buy it ASAP.I don't usually see if I have finished my old products and buy the new one.

This is my first empties after few years of been a hoarder.

  1. Forest Essentials Delicate Cleanser (Saffron & Neem) : This is a real life saver for me.If I will repurchase this again,my answer is a big YES.
    2.  Forest Essentials Hair Cleanser & Conditioner (Mysore Sandal) : Not that good except for shiny
         hair.Won't be trying this again.

    This is a small step to my first empties..I hope my second empties will be much better than this.

Makeup Forever Duo Mat Powder

Today I am going to review about MUFE Duo Mat Powder Foundation.

Description :

The Duo Mat compact powder comes in a practical case which includes a mirror and a sponge, for a shine-free finish. It covers blemishes and perfectly evens out the complexion. Its formula provides a fresh feeling upon application, as well as exceptional hold and comfortable wear from morning to evening.

The lighting does unjustice to the color of the powder

Price : SGD 60(need to check again)

Quantity : 10g

My review:

In Singapore,we have MUFE in Sephora stores & at the same time their own MUFE shop(my first time trying out the brand).So I went to their own store & the sales lady there was really helpful to patiently chose the shade for me.Took around 40min till I decided which was the correct color for me.

It comes in a black round compact type of pan with a small mirror & sponge.

When I used this,it does give medium coverage & not full coverage.My face looks fresh when using it & keeps my oily skin at bay for around 4hours. After 4 hours,my face especially my T Zone gets so oily that I need to keep blotting my face and by the time I reach home,my full face is  very oily.I would recommend this for people with normal to combination skin & as for oily skin people,it is best to keep away from it.The staying power for this is really good & I am using it mainly because of that.

Final Verdict :

For normal to combination skin girls,go ahead & try it..Sorry oily skin beauties stay away from this..Even I am going to stay away from this & have to find a new powder foundation again.

Any recommendations for oily skin?
