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…

Recent Drugstore Love

I don’t explore the drugstore department as much as I would like to, mainly because most of the times, I end up picking up something I regret buying (those 3 for 2 promotions are too tempting!) But recently, I have really been loving a few drugstore finds, some of which are performing even better than their high-end counterparts, isn’t that exciting! 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…

Guerlain Smile Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo Review

I have never fell into the limited edition “trap” in the past (thank God, that’s a bottomless hole…), because most of the times I feel it’s simply a marketing trick, and lots of limited edition beauty products are not out of the world outstanding, I’m looking at you, (most of ) M.A.C. limited edition blushes!   But, the exception has been made for the Guerlain 2016 spring collection blush duo No. 17 smile. And if you are interested, it took me less than 5 minutes…

The Face of January (aka. January Makeup Favs)

The first month of 2016 has just flew by, I feel like I just got back from the holidays, and now Chinese New Year is approaching! The combination of holidays and purely me being lazy result in I’m not wearing as much makeup most of the times, a bit of base, a touch of blush and a wash of color on the eye is all I did 95% of the times, see, I don’t even have winged liner going on!     Bobbi Brown Skin…

Falling Back in Love: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick

After hearing some of my favorite YouTubers raving about Makeup Forever HD foundation stick, it reminded me I actually have a very similar product in my stash, the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick, which was probably (?) one of the first cosmetic brands that has started this foundation stick idea a few years back.   Given one of my new year resolutions this year is: buying less beauty products, and using up the existing pile (Let’s see how long that can last!), I thought I…

A Massive Beauty Empties

My new year resolution of “buying less beauty products and using up more from the existing pile” is still going strong, cannot say I’m not proud of myself so far, I thought it’s only appropriate to post another empty, and this is quite a big one (so many that I could barely fit all of them into the photo frame). There are some skincare, some makeup, body care and hair care, having a sense of satisfaction just by writing this… Shu Uemura Green Tea Cleanser…
