4 Words: Love at first swipe! Creamy, velvety smooth and deliciously pigmented. I had always skipped over these unassuming Catrice Velvet Matt Eyeshadow pans in the drugstore. The one time I touched them… oh my. I knew I had to grab them to share.
Let’s dance into the review and swatches!
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!
Curious? Let’s check it out!
The Face Shop is a popular South Korean brand known for their skincare and natural image. The Black Label Lipsticks are part of their permanent line. It’s affordable and oh so creamy, moisturising and beautiful.
Let’s dive in to the review!
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?
Let’s dive in and see how it performs!
I’ve been dying to try Sleek’s palettes since they took the beauty realm by storm.
The Sleek Enchanted Forest 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 and enchantment, 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 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.
Let’s see how the formula performs!
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!
