Review: Kate Mineral Powder Foundation in OC-C!

Powder me up with Mineral Powder! It's definitely no surprise to long time readers that I'm a powder freak! I must have pressed powder with me at all times. My favorite type of foundation is pressed and powder as I love being matte. Setting my liquid foundation with pressed powder is also a step I never skip unless the foundation truly has a dry touch finish, I find that most liquid foundation will eventually melt off, sweat off or fade due to my oils at the end of the day and powder keeps everything in place and looking great.

Currently there is only one pressed powder that I've repurchased year after year from ZA, their Perfect Fit two way foundation powder as it's been my favorite. However recently I've purchased  powder from many different brands, giving them all a go since it's the one product I really manage to go through and finish regularly!

Special: Lunar New Year Celebrations, Outings and Food 2016!

Let's welcome the year of the Monkey! Happy Lunar New Year to all my fellow followers who celebrate Chinese New Year! It's that one time of the year when Chinese all over the world try to be around family to celebrate and to spend time together. As I always tell people, the Chinese New Year is like Christmas, Independence day and New Years all in one for the chinese people! For my family it's usually a private affair, my immediate family has dinner together and I love visiting Chinatown multiple times before the new year day itself as its bustling and so full of temporary shops and sellers.

This post is super photo heavy from my visits to Chinatown and the meals I had with family at home as well as at my favorite restaurants in the Chinatown area with the boyfriend!

Review: Nars Lipstick in Funny Face!

Stunning lips with Funny Face! Yes, believe it or not...this is my first NARS product EVER! I've of course seen, watched and heard so much about the brand. Everyone seems to be in love with the sleek black packaging, the sheer glow foundation and especially their blushes and most recently the new Audacious lipsticks! Nars wasn't sold in singapore until about 2 years ago but I still never picked up anything as the prices are so marked up. 

Finally when I was at the airport in Bangkok when I was traveling with my mom last year, while searching for a blue toned fuchsia lipstick and looking through all the brands at duty free, I found this baby and just had to get it!

Day out: Admiring pastries at MBS, visiting the Hermes exhibition and a Thai meal at Bugis!

Day about town with a gal pal! Here is a post of a totally fun and girly day out. We spent time at Singapore's famous 'Shoppes' at Marina Bay Sands just looking around, window shopping, making comments, looking at pretty cakes and so on. We ended up having a really filling tea time break before my girlfriend brought me to check out a free exhibition by Hermes and then to Bugis (which everyone knows about and has gone to but me) where we checked out lots of the shops and had a delicious Thai meal!

Special: Year End Collective Haul 2015! (Chanel, Shiseido, Clinique, Bourjois, Etude House)

Year end collective haul time! Last year I did a big collective shopping haul and not surprisingly I have one yet again for the end of 2015! I've started a new job that's been going great since November and so my blog has slowed down a bit recently as I've been getting used to my new schedule. I did give myself the go ahead to spend lots of money in December as I've been very good the last half year on a low buy period. I rarely ever indulge in high end products and made up my mind that I was going to satisfy myself with products that I've wanted forever and still had on my shopping list!

Everything in this haul was purchased over November and December on many different occasions! I finally got myself a fancy, expensive skincare product which I've been thinking about getting for a long time. I picked up two drugstore foundations on a whim, ordered three holy grail lip balms, finally managed to get a black beauty blender, picked up the super pretty clinique cheek pop blush, bought a lip stain product on impulse and got a gorgeous lipgloss from an unexpected place.
