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. Right now, I’m in the latter phase, as you can probably tell from the title of this post 🙂 The obsession started when I got my hands on the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in the shade golden light 1, and it got elevated to a whole new level when I found…

The New HG Hydrating Mask in Town

I love facial masks, which can easily be told from the whole drawer of masks I have hoarded. And among all the masks, hydrating mask is my favorite, because in my mind, when your face is well hydrated, a lot of problems will go away by themselves – premature wrinkles, dullness, overly produce oil and etc. So you can imagine my excitement when I popped open this Aesop blue chamomile facial hydrating masque, and realized it’s the new Holy Grail in my facial mask collection.…

Chantecaille is not a mainstream skin care/makeup brand (but it is a lux brand), at least that’s my impression. But they do have awesome products, which, of course, come with jaw dropping price tag, such as this over $100 SGD ($69 USD) ‘Just Skin’ Tinted Moisturizer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (50g,…

The Perfect Nude Nail Polish

My hunt for a good nude, suit-all-occasion nail polish has been a long journey. I have tried pretty much all the highly rated nude nail polish out there in the market, well, at least the ones I can get my hands on. None of them worked for me, they all looked either too gray, or too pale, or too brown for my skin tone. Long story short,  they basically make me look like I’m sick and have infected nails. I almost gave up until I…
