Just a few weeks ago, we were shook by the launch of Fenty Beauty in Sephora and I still can't get over the 40 foundation shade range feat pulled by badgalriri herself! Alas, she definitely did stir up some awareness on diversity cuz' following to her launch, even big players were striving extra hard to market their own foundation shade range that was previously less talked about. Kudos to you, RiRi!
However, despite all the hype, even I myself was disappointed that there were no eyeshadows or lipsticks in her first drop. Well, I guess Fenty Beauty already had some out of the world plans in mind because for their Holiday 2017 Collection, we are graced with an array of interstellar glittery eyeshadows as well as futuristic metallic lippies. Received The Galaxy Collection just two days ago and I HAD TO quickly put together this post cuz' I know you darlings are waiting.
Clinique has always stood out to me as a highly professional & clinical (haha, pardon the pun) brand that may be slightly daunting to first timers in skincare. Rest assured, Clinique is definitely one of the most skin-friendly brand with a team of experts that are so nice, you may mistake them as your friends! Been there, done that! Don't be afraid to approach any of the friendly Clinique counter experts to access the condition of your skin, products can only work for you if it is meant for your skin type. ;)
Awhile back, I had the opportunity to undergo a full skin "checkup" at the Clinique counter and got my skincare regime customised by the experts. My main issue is acne. It is literally the bane of my existence and it NEVER stops coming back. One moment, I will have crystal clear skin and the next, it is like an epic volcano eruption all over. That being said, after clearing up the mess, there is always the aftermath of scarring. So here is when Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer comes into play. Phew, it is a pretty long name for a bottle of skincare, no? Jokes aside, if you are in the market for a product to reduce discolouration on the skin without further aggravating its condition, you may want to stick around to find out more about this futuristic dual chamber serum!
REVIEW: Glam Up In Seconds With L'Oreal Le Stylo Smoky, True Match Crayon Concealer & Superstar Duo Liner
My biggest trick when it comes to eyeshadow application is blending! It is the most underrated skill taught in makeup schools but is SO IMPORTANT when it comes to perfecting your makeup. On top of using the right tools, it actually takes quite a bit of skill and patience to get that perfect smoky look. Even for a frequent makeup wearer like myself, I sometimes do find it a chore especially when I am working with products that are really chalky and difficult to blend, or simply, have terrible pigmentation to begin with.
With my recent discovery of L'Oreal Le Stylo Smoky, my daily eyeshadow routine is now a piece of cake. This super cool 2-in-1 product has a retractable ultra-gliding eyeshadow stick on one end and a handy kabuki brush on the other. Oh, and did I mention that the shadow stick is extremely pigmented as well? Yup, tell me about it, the Le Stylo Smoky is my new best friend and is gonna be yours too! ;)
Acne is the ultimate bane of our existence, especially during our teenage adolescent days. The volcanic red bumps that ooze pus not only looks extremely unsightly, it also leaves a nasty scar for the unlucky. Unfortunately, I am one of the few unlucky ones that suffer from major acne scarring. No, I am not talking about the pigmentation scars that disappear after a couple of years. I am referring to the deeply pitted acne scars that last a lifetime. Even after clearing my acne, I am still plagued by the ugly pitted boxcar scars that are scattered all around my forehead and cheeks. For the longest time, it has affected my confidence and I could never post a photo up without photoshopping my scars away.
Fret Not, There's Hope!!!
Thankfully, Dr KS Wong heard my pleas and introduced Kowayo Baby Skin Booster (逆龄针), the LATEST scar fillers in Singapore, and I am so excited to share my amazing results in today's entry. THERE IS HOPE DARLINGS! You will never face the mirror the same way again!
A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life - Coco Chanel
Gonna start off by clearing all your doubts and answer the number one question I got from everyone. No, it is not a wig. This is all real, I chopped off my blonde locks for a fresh new look. I guess everyone was associating it with a wig because of how healthy and shiny it looks even after all the chemical processing.
Ps: Also no, I did not cut my hair because of a breakup. HAHA single can mingle ya'll!
You must be wondering, how did I maintain such beautiful locks despite ill-treating it with frequent bleaching, colouring and perming? Well, I'll be spilling the beans today but a tiny hint here, Shiseido Professional's new Salon Program did play a huge role in protecting my hair! ;)
Psst, read till the end to find out how you can win yourself a a free hair makeover!
