"I literally wanted someone's grandma to be able to walk into a MAC store anywhere in the world and be able to use these products. I made sure it was universal so that anyone who loves makeup, glamour, and sparkle will find something in it."



The hero product of this range has got to be the Patrick's Setting Powder. He's been sharing and teasing us on his social media and you can see that alot of thought as been put into this simple product. He wanted this to be a universal baking powder for you to set your makeup and after using it today, I'm falling in love with it, my skin looks so smooth and almost poreless, with my makeup lasting through the day with no touch-ups.


Next up, are the 2 Eyeshadow Quad palettes - Goalgetter and Glam AF. Both of them are in the earth tones range with Goalgetter on the warm tone and Glam AF on a more cool tone palette. Each consist of 3 mattes eyeshadow and a shimmery shade. 

Goalgetter Eyeshadow Quad


I opted for the Goalgetter palette for the colours are more vibrant and the shimmery shade - Amber Lights was calling out to be the moment I swatched the palettes.

Glam AF Eyeshadow Quad


As for the Glam AF palette, I find the shade Omigaud a little loosely pigmented and hard to get the colour to show, you might need to wet your brush to make the colour pop.


Lastly, we have the matching Lipglasses, Lipsticks and Lip Pencils. I love the names of each product, but the colours were a little too common, something that I might each already have at least 5 of. I was hoping to see a little more glitter or shimmery shades. 



But then again, I'm someone who likes stronger lip colours, something that's out of the norm; for those who are looking for lip colours to wear through the day, from work till night dates, these colours and formulas are amazing. You have literally matching colour sets, you don't have to make your own matches for Lip Pencils or Lipsticks.



Overall, I find the collection a little overhyped, I was hoping to see more colours, more glitz and glamour; it does make a decent collection, but nothing I'll go crazy about, even the packaging was not exciting for me.


Of course, now with Patrick Starrr as M.A.C's Key Artist Collaborator, I'm looking forward to seeing what surprises he have for us. For now, I'll just be waiting for the Jeremy Scott collection to be in my hands...

Beauty SOS With Meishoku Bigansui Medicated Lotion Toner

| |
Hi Huneybees,



I found a little beauty "treasure" whilst shopping at Don Don Donki and I must share with you. For months I've been bugged by acne/pimples/blemishes on my cheeks and chin. No matter what acne patch or cream I use, it just doesn't seem to go away. I was reaching desperation, not wanting to go out to face the world.



Luckily my little midnight shopping trip paid off. This little blue bottle - Meishoku Bigansui Medicated Lotion Toner, was waving its hands at me on the shelves, I've seen it being highly recommended on @cosme before and with the big sign "highly recommended" hanging there, I bought a bottle with the hope of "fixing" my face.



Most of the wordings are in Japanese except for some simple introduction and instructions, so I did some Googling. Apparently this "ancient" formula has been around since 1885 and has been a hot seller in Japan ever since, without changing their formula at all. It's even been loved by the old royal family for its superior sebum control performance!


This toner is recommended for sensitive and oily skin and its benefits includes:
  • Prevent Acne, Blemishes and Freckles due to sun burn 
  • Prevent Clogging of Pores
  • Control Excessive Sebum
  • Contains BHA and Act as a Mild Exfoliator
  • Help to Soften Dead Skin
  • Effective in removing white and blackheads


The lotion comes with a see-through navy blue glass bottle with a plastic screw cap, it's pretty heavy and I won't recommend it for traveling. It's easy to dispense the toner drop by drop, without spilling, but it's the scent that gets to me a little. 




It has a pretty strong herbal scent and when you apply on the skin, there is a cooling effect, so for those who are sensitive to alcohol, please do a patch test or consult your doctors before using.



So, here's how I use it. Every morning and night after cleansing my face, I will apply my usual toner first and then dab a few drops of the Meishoku Bigansui Medicated Lotion Toner on a cotton pad. I go on a dabbing motion on the affected areas and leave the cotton pad there for a little while, letting the lotion soak in, before proceeding with my moisturizer and other skincare regimes.




Check out the effect! In just 3 days, my acne and spots have lightened and even some disappeared. It's really magic that acne can be gone that easily with just a few dabs a day. The redness has stopped and I can see the patches dry up and hopefully with more application, that acne patch will be gone in no time!



  • Thank you Japan for this amazing product! You can find the Meishoku Bigansui Medicated Lotion Toner in Don Don Donki now in Singapore and hope everyone can be rid of acne problems with this little miracle!
