Since I have written so much about the wonders of mineral makeup, I thought I should post a picture of myself to prove the point.  This is a picture of me, before and after using mineral makeup.  Can you see the difference?

I’m at the experimental stage with mineral makeup and am very interested to try out new products.  But I’m not keen to purchase the full size until I’m convinced that the product is suitable for me.

So I was really excited to learn that Everyday Minerals is offering a free sample makeup kit consisting of three choices of foundation, one concealer and one blush, even for international customers.  I only have to pay for shipping which is just US$5.05 to Singapore.

If you like branded bags and watches but can’t quite afford one, please do not go buying the fakes.  This is not only a matter of image, but more importantly, by buying fake luxury goods, we could unknowingly be funding organised crimes.

One of the websites that I frequent whenever I want to check up reviews on beauty products is Makeupalley.com.  Beauty enthusiasts are probably familiar with this interactive online beauty social portal, which is buzzing with millions of member generated product reviews, message board posts, shopping diaries, product trades and member photo pages everyday.

Because the website is member driven, it means that you can get genuine reviews on skincare, makeup, haircare, fragrance and so forth.  You can get a feel of how popular a product is based on the average rating given and the percentage of reviewers who would buy the product again.
