Innisfree is a well-known South Korean skincare and makeup brand, known for their Jeju-inspired lines of natural, “green” products. Tree hugging goodness, anyone?
Cleansing foams tend to strip moisture from our skin. If you’ve ever experienced dry, flaky and tight skin after a foam cleanser, you know what I mean 😉 One solution? Cleansing creams.
Anyone else have a hard time finding good cleansing creams? After serious searching, I found this gem. The Innisfree Green barley Cleansing Cream has been my go-to everyday cleanser the past few months. I’m stoked to share this find!
The Face Shop is a popular South Korean brand known for their skincare and natural image. The Face Shop Black Label Lipstick series is part of their permanent line. It’s affordable and oh so creamy, moisturising and beautiful. I picked up shade #11 Lovely Pink.
MAC Casual Lip & Cheek Colour is a creamy, emollient blush and lip colour all in one. The shade For Your Amusement appears warmer coral pink in the pan, but is actually a cool-toned, pastel pink when swatched. It claims to be non-sticky, lightweight and dewy. Hmm, can a blush that feels like a gloss really do all that?
I’ve been dying to try Sleek’s eyeshadow palettes since they took the beauty realm by storm.
The Sleek Enchanted Forest Eyeshadow palette is a new release, fairytale inspired – oh my! – and each colour is has a name I’m sure many of us can relate to. Inspired by fairytales, it’s filled with mauves, dreamy blues and earthy tones. It features a good balance of light and dark shades, shimmers and mattes.
How does this pretty little thing perform? Let’s find out!
Picked up this Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara in Denmark. Its name is quite the mouthful. Is it just me, or is the Maybelline mascara selection here wider than usual? Hmmm. The quest for a holy grail mascara is on.
Let’s see how this baby fares! (Spoiler alert: Absolutely amazing, hands down new holy grail (HG) mascara.)
The festive season is here, which means shopping, shopping and more shopping!
I’ve been invited to try out ShopBack recently. It offers deals and discounts at many of our favourite online shopping destinations – Zalora, ASOS, Groupon, Lazada and so many more – plus cashback. Basically, we get a little extra cashback with shopback just by shopping at the same places we always do!
The Catrice Luxury Nudes Soft Matte: 01 White & Bright is a fresh, clean white matte nail polish. True to its name, it is elegant and softly matte with a subtle pink sheen. There’s something touchable and marshmallow-y about the finish. Mmmm~
“Matt” and “Matte” are both correct, depending on which side of the world we are on. We use “matte” here in Singapore.
As if a tropical island can’t get hot and humid enough, we’ve been enjoying (not really) a very sweltering summer. It’s virtually summer all year round in Singapore, but this time of the year means more intense summer weather: Heatwaves, blaze and sweat.
As a citizen of eternally hot, humid summers, allow me to recommend 5 summer beauty and makeup essentials, tried and tested!
Been using Bifesta Cleansing Lotion makeup remover for over a year. I rarely say this, but Bifesta is hands down the best I’ve ever used. It is oil free, colouring free, fragrance free, paraben free and alcohol free.
I can’t rave enough about the formula. However they made this, they made it right!
The Catrice Minter Wonderland nail polish is a soft, pretty light blue polish. It has a slight greenish tone indoors, but reads more pale blue in sunlight. It doesn’t strike me as particularly mint-like, but is lovely nonetheless.
