A Rather Large Bobbi Brown Haul

I’ve been on a self-imposed “no makeup purchase” restriction for the past couple of months, and have been doing it quite well. (*Of course, I saved the money and divert the energy to skin care buys, a Shopaholic’s problem!) So when I receive the email from Tangs (a local department store in Singapore) that says I can pick any given day on Oct to enjoy 12% rebate, I thought it was time to retreat myself. I went in with the intention to just get the Bobbi…

My Everyday Lipsticks

I’m not overly obsessed with lipstick, at least that’s what I thought, until I started counting how many lipsticks I have in my Muji acrylic case.

In my head, I was planning to create different looks every day…

My Favorite Online Beauty Shopping Destinations

Living in Singapore means it’s often a pain to get my hands on the beauty products (especially the ones have been raved and raved on YouTube, how great is that!) that I’m dying to try, the kind of pain that girls in the U.S. will never understand. Of course I can always wait and get them when I have business trips to the U.S., which I do, but sometimes, I just cannot/don’t want to wait! So my search for beauty sites that offer international shipping…
