Rave review: MAC Mineralize Blush in Gentle!

Mineralize blush in Gentle! For those who aren't aware I've owned very few MAC products! I have owned a total of 3 single eyeshadows, lost the one that I loved the most, didn't get much use of one because it wasn't that good and then forgot about the third one at the back of my stash! Believe it or not I've never owned a foundation, powder, blush or LIPSTICK...Yes I said I've never owned a MAC lipstick before! AHHHH!

Hence as I was on my way to Bandung Indonesia for a relaxing long getaway (see my holiday post here) I had to drop by the Mac store inside Singapore Changi Airport for a quick shop and decided I was going to spoil myself with some mineralize blushes that I was secretly lusting for! I swatched all in store, picked two and we headed straight to the gate for our flight!

Review: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Milk!

Super Hyaluronic Acid moisturizer! For those who aren't aware, a very popular and now very common ingredient in asian skin care is hyaluronic acid. The japanese brand Hada Labo uses this ingredient in their moisturizing milk/lotion products! I've tried their whitening version of this moisturizing milk (see my review here) and decided after finishing it to try this version!

Hada labo has a few lines of product, one primarily for hydrating, one for whitening and one for anti-aging. Expect all the textures of their products to be mainly thin, moist and very lightweight. Do check them out, they are an affordable line of japanese skincare to try!

Rave Review: 1028 Macaron Eyeshadow Kit!

Macaron Eyes! For those who aren't aware, the brand 1028 is a Taiwanese drugstore brand that sells gorgeous, high quality make up products that can be found in Singapore at Watsons! I've swatched all their eyeshadows and they are all so amazing that the first beauty product I bought from them was a beautiful varied neutral palette called the Brownie Eyes palette (see my review here)!

I knew that I would eventually go back and buy more shadows from them as they are very nicely packaged and seriously have the quality of shadows like from Urban Decay! This is the Macaron palette which surprisingly aren't soft pastel colorful shades like the name might suggest.

Blackened green smokey eyes, rose bronze cheek and a nude lip!

Wearable duochrome smokey eyes! Whenever I see the most beautiful dark smokey eyes I know that I won't be wearing them on a daily basis or for work or just for a day out. However I love the smokey quality of dark gradient looks and I love duochrome browns and hence I decided to create my version of a dark look but for wearing during the day!

For this look I used my Urban Decay Smoked palette which is a stunning small collection of rich jewel tones, some gorgeous mattes which includes everything you need for a simple clean nude eye to a rich smokey jewel toned eye look.

Rave review: L'oreal Le Teint True Match in shade R2 Apricot Ivory!

Le Teint True Match! For many many women for many years L'oreal True Match has been a famous drugstore product and a staple for women around the world! Having a huge range of shades (in major parts of the world), suitable for most skin types and with great coverage that leaves the skin looking real and yet flawless I'm won't be surprised if this product forever has a section in store!

Years ago I had helped my mother pick out her shade of L'oreal True Match and on hindsight we some how got her the wrong shade...TWICE. I then purchased one for myself 4 years ago and it was one of my first foundations. In the end although it wasn't the right match at the time it was amazing and I can never forget or speak less about this product!

Review: MUA (Makeup Academy) Eyeshadow Palette Dusk til Dawn!

Dusk til Dawn! For those who are aware of MUA's 12 pan eyeshadow palettes, they are not only such a great steal but they have a great range of colors and pretty great pigmentation! For those who love shimmery and satin shades these palettes seriously do have a great pay off and for those who question the Undressed palette as being a Naked palette dupe, it pretty much almost is!

This beautiful palette was gifted to me in a swap with Pam from Jade in the Palace beauty blog which I did a swap with last year! I had received the Undressed palette from her before and it was such a winner I had to ask her to help me get another MUA palette to try!

Haul: My first Innisfree beauty haul (Nov 2014)!

INNISFREE ME! Yes, as of November the popular super affordable brand Innisfree has been in Singapore for one year! I wasn't aware of this until I left the shop and noticed the free gift I was given in my bag. Innisfree is like  Skin Food and The Face Shop in the sense that they have a wide range of products with lots of fruit/vegetable ingredients. However Innisfree is the most popular of these three brands and is also the most affordable too!

There are two giant Innisfree shops in singapore, one in the basement of Ngee Ann City and the other in Dhouby Ghaut Atrium. Both sell everything from eyeshadows, foundation, BB cushions, lipsticks, face masks, skincare, nail polishes and more! Be warned, everything is really affordable you'll go insane once you see the price tags!

Review: Biore UV Aqua Rich Whitening Cream SPF 50 pa++!

Biore's UV protection time! As we all know sun protection is essential in a skincare routine. We all need to somehow get sunscreen in some part of our skincare or make up routine in order to protect our skin from deep and future sun damage. I've never like sunscreen. It's never made sense to me to purely wear sunscreen on my bare face and go out. 

For two reasons as my skin is super sensitive and all kinds of sunscreens sting and I used to have oilier skin which combined with the hot and humid weather in south east asia is crazy! In recent years I've discovered using sunscreen below my bases and powders and more importantly getting it in my make up too. I've already tried, used up and loved Biore's mousse version of this sunscreen, do check out my review here!

Shades of berry jam eye look!

Yummy berry jam! I'm sorry but my attempt of coming up with names for my eye looks really suck at times! I tend to go very simple and name them by the colors I used but I thought looking at this one a bit longer that it reminds me of a mix of berry jams! I love love jams made from berries...strawberry, blackberry, blueberry...all of those purple, reddish and bluish berries make my day!

This look was for work and I wanted color, something purple but not too dark and more pink...hence I got into my Z palette with all my brights and put together this all berry toned look!

Rave review:Bourjois Healthy Mix in shade 52 Vanilla! (New packaging)

Give me my Healthy Mix! I'm one of the biggest fan of Bourjois Healthy Mix. I used to buy this when they had the older plastic packaging (my review here) and since they're repackaged this line more than a year ago I had to pick up a new bottle! This foundation is best for those with yellower undertones and have a light-medium complexion. There are not many shades in this line and if you're pink toned, super pale or darker you won't find a good match.

For those who aren't aware, Chanel is currently owned by Bourjois and hence many ladies have claimed that this foundation is just as good and some say even better than Chanel's Aqualumiere foundations! Many of Bourjois's products have the same texture and scents as Chanel. Plenty of make up artists love it too and it's super affordable!
