Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Set

It's summer time, have you found that the eyeliner you used to use is not as good as before anymore? Because the sweat and oil make it flake, and only until noon then you have already become a "panda". It's annoying, isn't it? I had the same experience until I found.......Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner!

I remember when I first saw this product, the first question I had was "How can this brush draw out a fine eyeline?" That's why I didn't buy it. And until recently, my friend gave hers to me, and I tried for the first time. Incredible! Not only you can draw a fine line with the brush, its softness just made you feel so nice.

Mine is the black one, but the colour looks more dark greyish which is good because it looks more natural that way. The best thing about this eyeliner is that it doesn't smudge around the eyes even after a long time, thus Long-wearing as they put it! Also, it's water-resistant, so it's sweat-proof.

I don't think there's a better product than this one for the summer.

Tips: Remember to use tissue to clean the brush every time after using it, otherwise it will become hard after while and then won't be usable anymore.


O'slee ROSEHIP BB Cream

"Breathable but water-resistant veil once applied"? Sounds strange, doesn't it? This is how O'slee describes this Rosehip BB Cream HD Flawless SPF 26 PA++, they made it magical by using the most advanced ionic membrane technology.

I have been using it for a week now, and this is the fourth BB cream I tried (all different brands). O'slee's no doubt very thin and breathable, but I guess my face has too much flaws for it to cover :(. So it's actually a bit too thin for my liking, but if you don't usually put make up on when you go out, it's a perfect product to just brighten up your face (afterall, if you like a full make-up, you don't really use BB cream :P).

Since it's super hot in Hong Kong now, after walking outdoor for a while every morning, there would be sweat above my upper lip, and I usually just wipe them off with my index finger, and this morning when I arrive the office, I checked the mirror, and I haven't turned into a dirty looking baby with upper lip as dark as a moustache. :P So I guess the "breathable but water-resistant veil once applied" really does work!

But normally after lunch, I will have to re-apply it, whereas for the last one I used, the fading wasn't as obvious. (Yes, I admit that I am a very lazy person who don't re-touch my make-up in the afternoon).

The texture is quite watery, I guess that's how it could be so thin and breathable on the face, you basically don't feel that it's there after putting it on your face, but it does have a brighten effect.

So do try it and let me know what you think!


Best After-sun Soothing Products

Have you been enjoying the sun on the beach? Every time after sun-bathing, you should use after-sun products to cool and refresh your skin. Here are some good after-sun care products.

Personally, I really love gel type after-sun products, I normally store them inside the fridge to maximise the cooling effect:

Clarins After Sun Gel Ultra Soothing can be used on face and body.

If you don't like gel, here are two lotion which are good too:

Dermalogica After Sun Repair uses its very own reparative complex together with seaweed extracts and soothing botanicals, protecting your skin cells while restoring the skin's condition.

L'Occitane After Sun Balm formulated with organic vegetable butter of CupuaƧu, it's the  the ideal ingrdient to intensely hydrate and regenerate the skin after sun exposure.

Remember to protect your skin both before and after sun-bathing.
