Hey Everyone!

I have to be honest with you, my skin is pretty bad right now. Acne has always been an enemy to me and mine’s not a result of improper cleansing, it’s a matter of hormones which kind of makes things worse. I was born with PCOS which doesn’t really do much except that there’s always a little bit of hormonal imbalance. I took a huge blood test back in Australia and they found out that I had it.  I could have bouts of great skin (where I take all my pictures etc) but the next day I could be blooming with acne buds. It’s something that has been bugging me my entire life and I don’t know when it’s going to stop. Products do work for a series of days and then stop —–> Read More

I have been a long time fan of LUSH fresh face masks. I remember in Uni, I used to buy one a week and my favourites were probably brazened honey, love lettuce and catastrophe cosmetic! LUSH Singapore invited me down for a special event to see how one of their fresh face masks were made and I have to say, it’s exciting stuff! LUSH fresh face masks are made of natural ingredients and actually have to be stored in the fridge! I didn’t know how natural they were until I saw how they were made! So let’s begin!

Today I want to share with you my experience during my third visit at Kerring Skin which is located at 60 Orchard Road, #07-07A International Building. They are a fab facial place that I feel is very comfortable and comforting. During my third visit, I wanted to try something new so they let me try the Dr. Renaud Rosa 3 range that includes probably my favourite facial mask from them – the Rosa 3 mask which smells like literally a bouquet of roses!

Today I thought I might do a foundation review! It’s been a while since I’ve done one because my skin has been breaking out so badly. Thankfully though, it’s on the road to recovery. It’s like unpredictable weather really and it can go crazy in a matter of days and heal up in just the same time. Melbourne weather. I’ve been trying out the new Lancôme Blanc Miracle Bright Light Creator liquid foundation and I’ve been really impressed by it’s coverage and lightweight feel.

Today, I’m going to be doing a review on the NEW Shu Uemura Caligraph:Ink Eyeliner. You’ve probably spotted it at basically every Shu Uemura counter and when I first saw it, being an eyeliner addict, I wanted to have it. To be honest, I was expecting this to be the a really good eyeliner. Shu Uemura happens to have very high quality products and almost all of them I’ve tried so far hasn’t at all been disappointing so when I got my hands on this, I really couldn’t wait. And I am happy to tell you write off the bat, that it’s a pretty good eyeliner.

I hate being caught with greasy skin and it’s really something I can’t control. My face just wants to be a discoball midday and there’s nothing I can do about it until I discovered make-up. I always touch up midday and there’s a couple products I really do recommend to put in your touch up bag. One of them is the NEW Benefit Agent Zero Shine Shine-Vanishing Pro Powder! I love this to BITS and it’s something I received last year from my dear friends at Benefit Cosmetics to try out before the launch date in Singapore. Girls, I have to say that this is really amazing and it took a while to review it —–> Read More

My skin has been really awful lately. I know it doesn’t look like it but my camera has been good to me and has decided that it shouldn’t pick up every single flaw. The month of feb has been really stressful for me. I’m working everyday and on the weekends and my sleep is postponed till the am.

I need like space to breathe sometimes but I’m pretty sure it’s just me and my timely hormonal breakouts. With my skin lacking…a lot of things..I decided to take a trip to Kering Skin at International Building in Orchard again to see what they could do! Sometimes no matter how many products you wanna pile —–> Read More

I’ve realised that Singapore has been really starting to jump on the eyebrow bandwagon with many people opting for different procedures to enhance their eyebrows. Eyebrow embroidery has been a very popular service lately. It is an in between an eyebrow dye and tatoo and only permeates the first layer of skin so in that sense it is semi permanent. Curious, I went to The Prestige Eyebrow and Lash Specialist located in Pacific Plaza, #03-08, 9 Scotts Road to check it out.

To be honest, this review of my beloved SK-II Facial Treatment Essence has been a long time coming. I’ve been using the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for about a year and a half, but I don’t think I’ve ever really done a full review on it before. Yet, it’s been in my past and current favourites as one of my must-have skincare products. Today, I thought I would get on that. I love this stuff so much and have been using it a lot and have already gone through two bottles! I’ve stocked up in my drawers as well because seriously girls, it’s really worth the hype. I’ve also done a cool little banana experiment that —–> Read More

I guess I just wanted to tell everyone..that I’m back! If you were right in front of me, you’d probably look at me funny and all for good reason. To be honest, when I went brunette I just didn’t feel like myself. All of 2013, I just felt like I was trying to be somebody else so today, we say hello to the well…original me. I guess going black for me means a lot to me. For one, I don’t ever have to worry about looking like a two toned squirrel with my roots again and secondly, I don’t have to damage my hair anymore by retouching it every month. But frankly, I went back to black because it’s just me and I don’t —–> Read More

Today I’m going to be doing a more in-depth review of The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth Concentrate! I did a haul post earlier and a few first impressions that you can see right here. The Body Shop claims that after five days, you’re supposed to see results so here I am back again to give you my thoughts about this interesting serum. By the way, I had an amazing time meeting some of you at The Body Shop event for those who entered my giveaway! But, more on that later.

But I’ll be telling you more about that later! So, today I thought I might show you what I think were the best products I used in 2013 and what you should definitely add to your list the next time you’re out shopping!P.S – If you see that the name of the product has a link, click on it to see a full review post I did on it earlier if you want to find out more about it!
