Recent Beauty Empties

Exciting times! I have finished up a few more beauty bits since my last round of epic empty reviews (featured here and here). Today, I’m bringing 4 condensed (my version of condensed, so still a lot of ramble) empty reviews to you that spans across skincare, makeup and body care. Right, let’s get into it. By Terry Baume de Rose Face Cream:  I have been a long time fan of the By Terry Baume de Rose lip balm, which is the ultimate luxurious treat to…

The Foundation That Gives You The Best Version of Your Skin

In the past few months, the By Terry Sheer Expert foundation has been my go-on, on the rush weekday base. I have been using it so much that I feel it’s only right to tell you all what a fantastic foundation it is. If you have read my past posts on foundation reviews, you could probably gather that I prefer a light to medium coverage foundation, the ones that would do just the right amount of work to make your skin look better without looking…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter Review

I adore a good highlighter (who doesn’t?), but I’m not someone that would jump on every new highlighter release, yes, you can say I actually have pretty good self-control in this department. But when I see the highlighter from Anastasia Beverly Hills collaboration with Amrezy, I clicked on the “check out” button so fast that I didn’t even see the price. I have now been using this highlighter for two weeks straight, and I have to say, it does not disappoint at all. I’m still…

I Just Don’t Get These Products

Before I make a skincare purchase, I always make sure I do a decent amount of research: read up the reviews, and read off the ingredient list.

It just comes to show that skincare is very personal, and something that works for others, may not work for you. I have accumulated a few disappointments, please allow me to tell…

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40

This is a long overdue review of the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, which I promised to pop up couple of months back. But hey, better late than never right? When I look back at 2017, and count the days I have been wearing makeup, this is likely my most used foundation, despite of its poor package. Well, the package, let’s start from that. The foundation is housed in a weighty glass bottle, and the product is distributed via a pipette, which is not…

A Good, Old Cult Beauty Haul

Very few things in my book that beats a good, old beauty haul. The excitement of trying out new beauty products is up there with finishing up one. The other day, I saw this on someone’s instagram feed: “my hobbies include buying makeup and also thinking about the next time I will be able to buy makeup”. Well, if we change “makeup” to include all beauty products (I mean, hair, body, face, literally, covering head to toe), that will be a pretty darn good summary…

My Most Repurchased Skincare Products

Everyone knows me would agree that when it comes to skincare, I’m anything but loyal. I like to discover new skincare brands, and cannot stop myself from constantly testing out new products – it’s basically one of my most expensive hobbies, but don’t be surprised, there are a few things in my skincare shelf that I hold dear and close, they have a permanent spot, and I make sure to get a backup whenever they run low. So I thought I would go through my…
