My Review
I first saw this at Althea online store because of it's cheap price and got curious as I am always looking for products that can help my troubled dark eye circles. 

Since it is selling at discounted price, I decided to buy 1 and try. 

It came with a pack with a cute panda on it.
How the pack looked like.
The patch is black in color and is covered with serum. Came in a almost round shape. Like the shape of a pirate eye patch.

There are 2 sheets in 1 pack, separated by a clear liner.

The eye patch feels cooling and comfortable during application. And I do look like the panda cartoon on the pack during application.😛
During Application.
Although the eye patch feels really comfortable during application, there is no effect on my troubled dark eye circles other than moisturizing. Perhaps, it need several more application to take effect. :(

This cleansing wipe is able to cleanly remove makeup gently, even when they are waterproof. After use, skin is smooth and also stays refreshing even without rinsing. 

I have tried their cleansing water. So what is the different? Which should you buy?

Well, for me it all depend on your habit. 

Actually both works the same to me, just that one is wipe and one is liquid. Using the liquid one, I still need to prepare cotton pad. But using wipe, I just need to pull and use. Very convenient for people lazy like me.

So if you ask me, I will still prefer cleansing wipe. But one thing, It does feel over budget for me. :(

My Review
Thanks Simple for the very generous retail size samples given to try out.

I have used Simple products before but do not like them. But I must say, this Simple Micellar Cleansing Water really change my mind about their product. 

Let's see why. 

First, let's talk about their packaging. The product came in a transparent 200ml bottle. Good that it is transparent so that I can see how much is left to better replace it in time

The cleansing water has a transparent liquid texture. Not oily, not sticky and contain no smell. 

This cleansing water must be used with cotton pad. This means that I may need to use a lot of cotton pads, as whole face consist of different parts and I may need to wipe it the second time to confirm that it is totally cleansed.

Thanks to Sephora online store, I get to shop for a whole range of awesome eye products that they have at the comfort of my home with my busy schedule
Sephora online store
I was pretty impressed as my order came delivered pretty fast. So what eye products did I buy
What eye products did I buy? Lets unwrap together with Mr Poop!
Without further ado, let's unwrap and rock and roll with me!!!

My Review
This is the first time I am using Mario Badescu product and my first hyaluronic eye cream. The product came in a 14g tub and properly sealed. 
Came properly sealed.
I seldom use cream eye product as I always feel that it is too greasy. But this eye cream from Mario Badescu feels really light-weight and non greasy to me. 
Light-weight and non greasy and non-sticky.
I like it that I just have to use very little amount for each eye contour. Which means 1 tub can last me for quite long. :)

I must say, this hyaluronic eye cream did soften and moisturized my eye contour, making it easier for makeup application

However, it does not work on dark eye circles and eye bag. Therefore I personally felt that it is good to treat this product as an add on to my current eye care regiments that lack the moisturizing effect.

Leaders Insolution Hydrogel Eye Therapy Patch

My Review
Ok....of all the eye products, I admit eyeliner is the one I used least often. But I do want to start using them for prettier eyes. :)

About Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner really caught my attention. It came 2 sided.

One side is the normal creamy pencil and the other side is the beveled smudger.

Beveled smudger.
Color wise, I like my liner to be in dark chocolate color. Therefore, perfect espresso chosen. 
Perfect espresso.
Actually, this is the first time I am using the smudger. So I actually don't really know what to do with it. Trying on my hand to rub against the eyeliner erase them off. So can I actually use them as a eyeliner eraser then?? Well I better leave the smudger alone first. -_-'''

This pencil draws pretty eyeliner. Making my eyes look naturally beautiful and big.
Beautiful eyeliner drawn.
There is only one problem with the eyeliner. The eyeliner tip break off or rather melt off easily. The texture just feels like a melted bar of chocolate. But I saw somewhere that says putting them in the refrigerator before use help. I tried and indeed it helps. The eyeliner tip became solid again and easy to draw.

My Review
This Mirenesse Kit came with a mascara and a heated eyelash curler. Ok...the heated eyelash curler is the one that attracted my attention. :P

All along I have been only using normal curler. So a heated curler really makes me curious.

The heated curler came as a sliver looking device. The only different is that it came with an on off switch and a button to lift up the pads.
Heated eyelash curler.
Of course AAA batteries are needed to operate the heating element. Otherwise it will be like normal curler. One thing to note, batteries are not included.
Need batteries to operate.
And when the pad turns from pink to white which indicate it is ready to use, I go Wow!!! -_-''' Ok ok I know I sound a little mountain tortoise here. :P
Pink pad turns white means ready to use.
The heated curler is not too hot but I do feel the warm heat when I place it on my eyelash. One thing I notice is that the heat can go too hot if I on it for too long. So make sure you don't on it for too long. Otherwise, I do see my lash being curl up making my eyes look more awake.
In the middle of using the heated curler.
The mascara that comes with the kit came in a nice black tube.
Mascara.
Opening it I see a slightly curve brush.
Slightly curve brush.
Trying out the mascara on my hand, it feels a little dry to me. But I personally feels that it should be the way so that it will not take too much time to dry on my lashes.
Trying out on my hand.
It is easy to apply. But I have to make sure I don't blink my eyes immediately to avoid little black mascara landing on my skin.

One thing I like about this mascara is that it looks so natural and it feels comfortable to wear.
Eyes look natural and pretty.
Alright folks. After using these basic eye care and eye makeup, my eyes do look really gorgeous!!!
