[REVIEW] L'oreal Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer


I had gotten this from a L'oreal bloggers event previously.
I've tried it and I love it but just did not have the time to blog about it back then.
A make-up base or primer helps makeup stay on longer and also conceals blemishes and flaws.


What is interesting about the L'oreal Base Magique is its unique velvet texture.
It is kinda starchy to touch and reminds me of mashed potato. Crazy, I know.
This may seem like a really tiny tub but a little goes a long way with this makeup primer.



It is recommended that you take alittle of the product and rub it between your fingers to ease the spreading. Next, apply a thin layer evenly over your face, focusing on areas with fine lines and visible pores.
This makeup primer hides flaws and also creates a smooth, natural-looking canvas that is perfect for makeup.
Makeup stays on for hours and it does a pretty good job with oil control.

[TEASER] Real excited to try out these acne-blasting products!

Sorry to disappoint but this isn't a full review. However, I will be doing one very soon.
I have 2 painful pimples on my nose... must be the rising humidility levels of late.
My nose is starting to resemble an oil well off the Gulf coast.
This seems like a heaven-sent product for us all who are plagued by annoying pimples!

SPOTLIGHT 24: for larger areas @ S$199.00



SPOTLIGHT 8: For a few spots @ S$129.00




SPOT LIGHT 3: For individual spots @ S$79.00




I have started using the LMS 3 as above and I'm truly amazed!
I have this painful bump around the area between both nostrils, you can't see the zit.
However, you can feel that its there and know that its there.
After just 2 days of using the LMS 3; 1-minute zap thrice a day and now its GONE!
WOW! I can't wait to try out the rest, even if it means hoping for some zits to pop out so that I can do my experiment.


You can find these products available at any Guardian Health & Beauty Store.
You may also check out their main website for more details!

Do stay tuned for my review! :)

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Help the pets in Japan!

Most of us have probably been following the news closely ever since Japan was hit by a magnitude-8.9 earthquake on March 11th, followed shortly by a tsunami which wiped out most homes, leaving thousands displaced and homeless.
As donations are pouring in for the victims of the earthquake, let us not forget their fur pals too.

If you need a reason to donate and help, please check out the video below.



Honestly, I was terribly touched by the above video and could not watch beyond 2.06 minutes.
If that dog could do the above for his canine friend, shouldn't we as humans do more for them?

Anyway, both of the dogs shown in the video have been rescued and I hope that they will make it through.
And that the owner is still alive and would be able to reunite with his fur pals soon.
There is an article for the above video, check it out HERE

I was googling on where I could donate to save the pets in Japan when I chanced upon this BLOG.
Therefore, I'll just share some of the information from that site on my blog too.
If I'm not wrong, unclaimed pets might be put to sleep if the owners do not make a claim within 72 hours.
And that is something very sad because these pets do not have any choice or rights for their own survival.
Furthermore, with thousands still missing, its feared that their owners could possibly be dead too.

I just hope that perhaps while we pray for and donate to those stricken by this tragedy in Japan.
We could also do the same for these helpless creatures.



"Donate to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS).
This group is comprised of three private No-Kill animal welfare organizations in Japan; HEART-Tokushima, Animal Friends Niigata and Japan Cat Network. No animal rescued by JEARS will be surrendered to Animal Control (where they would be at risk for euthanasia after three days) under any circumstance. They rescue, reunite and rehome lost and abandoned animals.
The PayPal donation address is donate@jears.org
Donation Page at http://japanearthquakeanimalrelief.chipin.com
Become a fan of the JEARS Facebook page to stay up-to-date on their progress."

"Support the Animal Refuge Kansai. This organization, which has facilities in Tokyo and Osaka, has set up a fund for their shelters. They are preparing for what is predicted to be a huge influx of homeless animals from disaster areas. ARK already has some facilities in place and a team of experienced staff able to deal with traumatized animals. The building of emergency shelters may be needed as well. Says ARK: "We will use our resources and know-how to help as many animals as we can, following this terrible disaster."

"World Vets is currently coordinating relief efforts to help the animal victims in Japan. The organization is sending supplies and preparing a group of first-responders who will be able to offer immediate aid to animals on the ground. Donate through their website."

To help the victims in Japan, please check out this Yahoo Page.
I've made a donation via World Vision Singapore, however, you may pick a charity organisation of your choice.
This Yahoo Page lists down some of the charities that are currently supporting the victims of this tragic disaster.

Let's keep Japan in our thoughts and prayers as they brace through this tough period.
