If I were to choose which posts should make it to 2012’s top list, it would look very similar to this year’s most popular. That got me excited to make this post. Here are the top 5 most popular product reviews on Scatterbraintures this year (click the product name/ sub-heading for the review).

5th most popular: Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation

As the year ends, so does my sun stick foundation. For a time, I scrimped on using this because it’s very expensive. But WTH, I’m now just enjoying it while it lasts. I intend to buy this again but not any time soon. I bought Maybelline’s BB sun stick to use alternately with this but that product turned out to be a disappointment. As my punishment, I promise to finish BB stick.


4th: Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte

From when I wrote the review, I still haven’t found a cheaper flesh-toned eyeliner. Currently I’m ok with that coz I don’t use this eyeliner everyday anyway. That’s not to say I don’t like it. It’s just that I only use it when I need it: when my inner rims are too red from lack of sleep. I think this will last me for the whole of the coming year.


3rd: Avon Simple Pretty Lip and Cheek Tint

I wrote the review in 2011, but it didn’t come as a surprise to me that it made it to top 3. This is my staple blusher. I currently have the doe foot version which I initially thought I wouldn’t like. Now, I like it better than the roller ball version because it’s less runny and it doesn’t set too fast.


2nd: Lactacyd Whitening Feminine Wash

I finished the whole 150 ml. bottle, used it for 4 months. I bought it out of curiosity and to prove something: that it won’t significantly whiten the groin area. And I was right. It was a pretty good cleanser though, and its fragrance wasn’t too strong.

To be honest, I was surprised that a lot of people were looking for reviews of this. It was supposed to be a joke, a filler entry, and I didn’t think many are that serious about whitening their V’s.

Last but not least, the most popular to date:

Etude House Drawing Eye Brow in Grey

This has been out-of-stock for the past few months along with their Face Color Corsets. I have the brown grey right now coz I couldn’t find the 2 grey ones anywhere. Even refills aren’t available. With that, it wasn’t difficult to see why a lot of people were searching for this.

I like the brown-grey one, but I still prefer grey. I recently found out that Tony Moly has a grey retractable eyebrow pencil like this, I’ll just get that next time.

This year started bad for me, and I’m glad things picked up towards the 2nd half. I’m very grateful to be alive and to be in good health. I’m grateful that all of my family is healthy as well. I’m grateful for you E, I love you, and I consider it a privilege to be promised of spending the rest of my life with you. I am grateful for my very considerate friends, and for the people who inspired me.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a good year as well.
