Tarte Holidaze Collection Review

For us beauty junkies, the holiday season always starts with Sephora 20% off and all the brands start releasing holiday collections. Sephora Singapore’s VIB 20% off sales typically start a few weeks ahead of the U.S. (usually towards the end of October). After making a serious dent on the wallet during the sales, I was pretty determined not to get any holiday collections this year. But the other day, when I was passing Sephora, I couldn’t help myself but walked into it, and out with…

Loving at the moment: Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder + Tom Ford Cheek Brush

I go through phases with bronzers. There are days when I want to embrace my pale face, and there are days I don’t want to leave my home without slathering bronzer all over my face.

You see it being featured everywhere in the blogosphere and YouTube videos, with people swear by its magic, which to be honest, I didn’t understand for a very long time. For 6 months straight, it has been sitting in my makeup drawer without seeing any daylight. I even…

The Primers For An Extra Boost of Radiance

Let me start by saying I’m not a primer girl. I don’t see primer as a necessary step in creating a natural, long lasting makeup look. Doesn’t matter if it’s drugstore or high-end, such as the widely acclaimed hourglass mineral veil primer, I never get along with it – I don’t like the feeling of them sitting on my face, and not making material difference, you know what I mean? However, the kind of primer that adds an extra boost of radiance, and gives you…
