Pixi Skincare is All Kinds of Awesomeness

The other day, a friend of mine was asking me what drugstore (aka. wallet friendly) skincare brand she can try out for her sensitive skin, and all I can think of were Pixi Skincare and First Aid Beauty. But today, let’s talk about Pixi Skincare.   If you scroll through my blog, you probably will notice that I like to invest on my high-end skincare products – it’s my sickness, I know! But I had tried many drugstore skincare brands such as Biore and L’Oreal…

New In: Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Lipstick in 216 Lettre

A few days ago, I passed by Chanel makeup counter and saw a giant display board showing the new Coco Stylo Lipstick in its all gloriousness – yes, it’s been out in the U.S. for a couple of months now, but like always, it takes several months for it to be released in Singapore. I love the Chanel Coco Stylo cream eyeshadow stick, which I believe was a limited edition, so seeing anything that’s in the similar package and appears to be in the same…

First one up is the L’Oreal infallible matte foundation. Heard many YouTubers and beauty bloggers raved about this foundation, and they are right, this…

2015 Makeup Heroes

Continuing my best of 2015 installment (best skincare products of 2015 here), I thought I would round up the makeup products I have used and love the most last year. Now, I know this is a super late post, but better late than never, right?   Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base has been a groundbreaking product for me in 2015. It’s THE product if you are looking for a radiant, glowing, naturally luminous but non-heavy, non-slippery and non-greasy base (woho, that’s a long list…

New In My Night Time Routine: Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Treatment

Since I’ve crossed the big 30th, I thought it’s time to add retinol to my skincare routine, after all, it’s one of the clinically proven anti-aging products that actually works. I’m completely onboard with the idea that anti-aging needs to start in your late 20s or at least early 30s, as you want your skin to keep its elasticity in its prime stage, right? Anyway, that has always been my believe.   So I picked up this Paula’s Choice 1% Retinol Clinical Treatment from Paula’s…
