Recent Favorite Lip Combo

When it comes to my lips, I’ve been quite fancy recently, if I may say so myself. Usually, I would just dab some lip balm or grab an “my lip but better” lipstick (discussed here) and dash out of the door. But I’ve been really into the lipstick + lipgloss combo – lip liner is still a one-off occasion for me, I’m just too lazy in the morning. Two of my favorite combos are: Lipstick Queen Lip Pencil in Nymph + Nars Lipgloss in Chelsea…

Review: Sarah Chapman Intense Hydrating Booster

I have completely used up the Sarah Chapman intense hydrating booster, like every drop of it. Given how much I enjoyed this product, I feel it’s only appropriate to give it a dedicated blog post.

I would even go as far to say this is the best hydrating serum I…

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…

What’s in My Gym Beauty Bag

So started about a year ago, I go to gym quite frequently, like 5 times a week. It became very clear to me quite fast that I need a fully functional beauty bag in my gym bag. When I say functional, I mean I need makeup remover, facial cleanser, toner, eye cream, moisturizer, sunscreen (if I go to gym at day time), perfume, lip balm and perhaps a blush, and a lipgloss if I go somewhere after gym. Is this considered high maintenance? Hopefully I’m…
