Hey Everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m in London! I’ve actually been in London for the past week and will be here for the rest of the month! It’s been a good year and a half since my last time here and to be honest right now, I really don’t want this holiday to end! Anyway, follow me on instagram @roseannetangrs for all my London adventures! I will probably be uploading a travel vlog soon! One thing I cannot resist is buying make-up here. I really can’t help myself and I always leave with at least something whenever I visit a Boots or Superdrug (which you would think is extremely dangerous for my wallet)! Sleek, BarryM, Rimmel and cooler Maybelline and L’Oreal products —–> Read More

Good Monday everyone. It’s haul time! Woot woot. Today I’m going to be showing you a peek inside my latest acquisition – the Shu Uemura Eye-Conic Collection! There’s a little giveaway at the end so stay tuned! Shu Uemura came out with the eyeconic collection as a celebration of their 30th Anniversary that is inspired by color and creativity from the 1960s or the swingin’ sixties. The collection is beautiful and reminiscent of the hippie culture and colours and I can’t wait to show you what’s in here!

Probably the majority of the collection features these trio eye-shadows and cheek duos. The collection also —–> Read More

Although Lancôme has always been a classic at every department store, I’ve never really tried products from them. I’ve got M.A.C, Bobbi Brown to Shu Uemura but I’ve never really touched Lancôme. I’m not sure why, so today here’s my haul of their new collection – Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz! If you don’t know, Alber Elbaz is an Israeli Fashion Designer and is the Creative Director for the Paris fashion house, Lanvin – since 2001. Watch him here from Vogue.

He decided to collaborate with Lancôme on a limited edition make-up collection.

hi

I think one of the challenges with starting any make-up artist career is building a kit. Not only do you need to get your shade, you need to be able to provide for everyone else’s. While you were opening your awesome Christmas presents, I was opening this. My boyfriend gave me a make-up artist’s dream – the Bobbi Brown BBU Face Palette! Best boyfriend in the world award? Pretty much.

The Bobbi Brown BBU Face palette is not available in retail stores, and is only available online. It is inspired by Bobbi’s own make-up palette that she uses when she works and features her correctors, concealers and foundation sticks. It has a great amount of —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I am so excited to share with you my make-up and fashion goodies that I’ve been “collecting” and getting here in the UK! I’m really into affordable drugstore or “high street” as they call it here brands because I know that these are the products that I can’t get anywhere else but in the UK or London!  And, with the store coming along, it also makes for a healthier wallet and a few more savings! :) That being said, the best place to go here in London is Superdrug which is a health/beauty store just like Watsons in Singapore and Priceline in Australia.

We’ve all heard of Sleek and BarryM I’m sure if you’re a beauty blog reader and it was so cool —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I bet only a handful of us would go out wearing neon eye-shadow colors to go shopping. I raise my hand. Maybe it’s the fact that we think we look better in just neutrals but I think it’s probably more-so of what people would think of us. Illamasqua’s Human Fundamentalism collection beckons you to become “who you are and not who you’re told to be”. The collection’s bold and bright colors of commonly unworn shades urges you to turn heads by expressing who you really are. Albeit this blog post is ridiculously long overdue. I was back in Melbourne when this baby was sent to my Singapore address. I thought it was only necessary to —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I’m down to my final week in Australia and although most of my make-up is packed up and bubble-wrapped and I probably swore to myself not to buy anymore, I came across these two babies and I couldn’t resist. But trust me, I do have a decent explanation for purchasing and that is well, I’ve never tried anything like them before and they are both spankin’ new products . Plus, I’m leaving so I should be putting my paws on everything I can’t get back in Singapore! Here’s a little haul of the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Make-Up foundation and the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam! I am throughly excited to —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

To be honest, I never really wore lipstick until I went to uni. To me lipsticks were such a hassle. I couldn’t eat without eating some and they faded far too much. But little did I realize that it wasn’t particularly lipsticks as make-up items I didn’t like, it was just that I was wearing the wrong one. I continued my lipstick journey with M.A.C, Chanel, YSL, and drugstore brands like Revlon and Maybelline only to find that I might have a slight addiction to them. They make a massive difference to any look, it’s the final polish. Even to that, I haven’t tried a Bobbi Brown lipstick before either. Silly, I know.

MizSpa contacted me a few weeks ago asking if —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

Last month’s Vanity Trove was February –  the month of love, pampering, sweet hearts and flowers. I can’t believe it’s already the second month of 2012, time flies super fast, like super bass. Speaking of super bass, VanityTrove has just sent out their February VanityTrove and as VanityTrove ambassador, I’m here to give you a peak into what’s inside this month’s sweet trove! You’ll be surprised to find that there’s a little bit of Nicki Minaj in it this month! So let’s get started and open this baby up!

First of all, this month’s trove smells absolutely heavenly. The potpourri wafting in the air when you first open the box smells like —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I have some exciting news to announce! I’m ambassador! No, not ambassador of Singapore, silly (I wish).  This post marks my first online ambassadorship with VanityTrove.com! I’m so excited. As their ambassador, I will be responsible for unveiling each month’s trove to you here on roseannetangrs.com. Plus, I’ll be holding random giveaways every now and then and I invite you in advance to attend all of them.

If you haven’t read my previous post on VanityTrove, VanityTrove hand-picks a set of themed beauty products and delivers them to your doorstep every month. It’s a fantastic concept and I totally love the picks that VanityTrove gives out including —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

If Urban Decay had a football game, I would be one of those fans wrapped up in Urban Decay scarves and hoodies cheering through a purple megaphone on the sidelines. You can pretty much tell from most of my tutorials that I love Urban Decay. Their eye-shadows are amazing – soft, ridiculously pigmented and who doesn’t love their very many palettes.

So when Urban Decay contacted me from California about a special campaign to launch their Urban Decay Naked2 Palette (the 2nd edition of the very popular almost cult product – the Urban Decay Naked Palette), I was more than overjoyed! It’s been a month since I received it in the mail so let’s see —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I’m finally back in Singapore. I have no make-up on currently, I’m sitting out on the porch in tropical weather drinking an orangina and I’m pretty content. Nothing like a haul to celebrate. Sometimes I tell myself that I won’t be going shopping during exams because I need to stay home and study. For some reason, that never sticks. I always find myself scrambling to the store when I get nervous or a little stressed out and I find that a few items bought can be one of the best stress relievers out there. Here’s my little exam stress haul – a few drugstore foundations, a favorite from Lush and of course a little bit from Sportsgirl.

1. LUSH Cynthia Sylvia —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

Sometimes we should revel in the beauty of the night. It’s dark, mysterious and has a certain calm about it that leaves us thinking to say the least. One cosmetic line that revels in the mysteries of the dark is the brand Illamasqua, a well-known UK based beauty known for it’s theatrical and bold colors and products. I have always wanted to try something from them, having just entered Melbourne in Myer stores recently, but never got around to it until a few weeks ago when they contacted me from London to see if I’d like to join their list of bloggers. Thoroughly thrilled, I accepted and they were nice enough to send me some products from their Theatre of the Nameless —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

Honestly, I’ve been on a hiatus, a willing makeup ban, for the past few months. I never really understood my hiatus and I blamed it on the fact that I already had enough makeup which isn’t a familiar excuse to be made by a beauty blogger. However, when the blow of assignments hit, I found myself more ways than one finding myself at Priceline time and again. I think buying makeup is ultimately thereapeautic so my wallet can’t thank me when I’m stressed out.

Priceline is basically the Australian drugstore. Think of a hub of drugstore makeup – you have Maybelline, Almay, Covergirl, Loreal, Revlon, Rimmel, Max Factor, Sally Hansen, Prestige, and aussie brands like Face of Australia —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I’m finally back in Singapore which means that I’m back to my default state – being a blogger. About a month ago, I did a swap with the lovely Eliza who runs a blog herself – (www.beautyjunkie.onsugar.com), you should totally check her out and tell her I said hello! This is exciting stuff. My first ever swap and when I opened Eliza’s package, I was taken a back! I love every single thing! I initially met Eliza on twitter and I met up with her on my last holiday back to Singapore when we decided to do a makeup swap! Let’s open the box and see what’s inside!

Yeah I know, so pai-seh!  So much stuff and it’s amazing!

I love the pink colored and —–> Read More

Honestly, I probably belong to the category that has never fully understood the BB cream craze. It seems like these well sought after make-up products have sprung up everywhere in Singapore and even foreign brands like Maybelline and Bobbi Brown have created BB creams to suit their Asian patrons. However, these creams that are offsprings of Papa Foundation and Mama Make-Up base are nothing to scoff at.

Hey Everyone,

I don’t know about you but crazy as this sounds, I’m getting bored of higher end brands. I shouldn’t say that too soon I reckon but ever since I’ve caught myself falling in love with drugstore foundations and mascaras, I’ve been putting my foot down on unexplored drugstore makeup territory. Trust me, my wallet is thanking me too.

Target Australia and Woolworths were selling all of their Covergirl products at 50% off. Yes, half off. I pretty much went crazy and then with the Maybelline Dream Mousse range on my wish list, I picked up a few of those too. Here’s a haul of the products and my first impressions.

1. Covergirl Clean Foundation

Hey Everyone!

I’ve had a horrible urge to shop lately and not the kind of shopping that can be quelled by a credit card or a web browser either, the kind that calls for paper bags and more than a bit of immediate satisfaction. So today was shopping day and knowing me, I was prepared to walk away from this day empty handed as I often do but as I dug through my bag, I came across a 10% LUSH voucher. Recently turned LUSH addict, I merrily walked to the store knowing that this was my chance to satisfy a much abandoned urge.

I tried mostly all the products I got from LUSH (not very many) tonight. Yes, I did wash my hair with beer, slathered seaweed all over my face —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

I’m probably known for having close to nil in the winning department. No matter how many times I recite my number, I will probably never win that lucky draw. Probably one of the first weeks back, the lovely Sarah Chaudry (It’s her birthday today!! Happy Birthday Sarah!) (www.facesbysarah.onsugar.com) contacted me to see whether I wanted to join an ambush makeover and that I could win $1000 worth of M.A.C! I dismissed the chance of winning anything since I don’t normally do and enjoyed the experience.

So, when I picked up my phone that morning at the office, I was totally caught off-guard. I had won $1000 worth of M.A.C. After five minutes trying to register —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

 

Like many of you, The Body Shop and I go way back. I grew up in an American International school and The Body Shop’s strawberry lip balm was a fad item amongst my 12 year old peers. At that time, it was the in-thing, along with the addidas superstar shoes with the three stripes and acting like a ditz. Now, the brow and liner kit has been one of my favourite products and I happen to love the scents especially Passion fruit, Grapefruit and Mango of their well-know body butters. I am also in full support of The Body Shop’s goal and morals of cruelty free and environmentally friendly products.

So when they contacted me about their Brush —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

Bobbi Brown has always been to me one of those brands that I wish I could have everything from, but I know that it’ll be a heartache to fork out for. It makes you want to dilly dally around the counter, say “its okay, just looking” to the sales assistant, and one day put that product into your list of makeup products that you want but will never get. The neutral colour palette that Bobbi Brown provides is stylish, natural, and beautiful but the prices on the shelf aren’t at all flattering. Most products are in the high forties and above that can set you back quite a bit in the numero department of your bank —–> Read More

Hey Everyone!

I’m sure you’ve all heard the word “BB Cream” floating around, but in a sea of foundations, compacts and high end powders, we lose sight of what this ‘miracle’ asian sensation really is. No, it’s not a bird, toy or a plane, it’s just healthy makeup. I see BB creams everywhere,  yet I have no incentive to try it out myself so I was happy to meet up with Lorraine, brand manager of the StarAsiaGroup which distributes a very special BB brand, Skin79, at The Marmalade Pantry last Monday.

So What are BB Creams?

A BB cream is makeup designed to be good to your skin. In the most idiot-proof way, Lorraine explained that it —–> Read More


Hello!

Beauty FYI: Elizabeth Arden 100th Anniversary Promotions – 9th – 15th July
Elizabeth Arden is currently having their 100th Anniversary Limited Edition Sets currently selling like hotcakes at counters from the 9th to 15th of July and I must say these babies are adorable. I met up with Elizabeth Wan, part of the marketing team at Elizabeth Arden for lunch at the Blue Mist Cafe and was able to get a glimpse of the upcoming promotions at the office, which was beautiful by the way.
She’s trying to take out the lip protectant, next to her is one of the new fragrances coming out and the red door lipstick next to the box. I have to say that the lipstick is probably one —–> Read More

Hello!

I’m home, I nearly forgot how good the food is here. Roti Prata, Nasi Lemak, my mom’s cooking, onnomnom beats by far the sandwiches, hot chocolate and..more sandwiches that I had during Uni. It’s good to be back, but with any flight (which I got to ride for the first time the A380, awesome!) comes Duty Free Shopping!

Earlier in Melbourne there was a sale at the Duty Free store in the city with everything being 30% off, I just had to get my hands on some YSL that I’ve been stalking on Sophia’s blog (www.retailtherapy.onsugar.com). I had to try a Rouge Volupte, and I threw in a brow pencil since each cost me about $25 AUD only —–> Read More

Hello!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m officially in exam season, that means me hidden in libraries with my nose in books, lectures, past exams and my mouth covered in chocolate. There are now officially 185 of you on this, and I feel that I have abandoned 185 of you but my excuse? Well, school. But also that it’s just easier for me to talk on a camera, edit it and upload it :) For me writing takes a bit of time if I really do want to make some sort of meek statement.

Here is my review first on Erno Laszlo, I put a lot of effort in the review including me —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

You might have already seen this post because I did a video about it a few days ago(?) BUT this time it’s cooler because not only is it really early in the morning and I’m more prone to typing nonsense (just kidding) I have tried some of the Smashbox products already but of course haven’t wanted to touch the AIW yet.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette

Yes, you’re already probably fed up with seeing this palette posted up on everyone’s onsugar blog but I have to say that it seriously just grabbed my macbook off my favourite thing throne and threw it on the floor. (ok —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

Hey Everyone,

I hate it when youtube stills turn out like that :P

Anyway..So one of the posts on SG_Beauty really caught my eye last week, well mostly because it had NARS blushes, so I took the two :) I did a meet and greet with the lovely Clare who happened to be a subscriber and collected the following:

1. OPI Nail polishes in (From L to R): Glove you so much, Lincoln Park At Midnight, Meet and Jingle

I absolutely love the formulas of OPI Nailpolishes – they give the right coverage with only a sweep of color and I love the packaging – professional, classy and beautiful. SO of course when I saw these —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

Haven’t updated my blog in a bit but here I am! I HITpan on something, I am so excited whever I hit pan :D and that thing is:

My MAC Blot Powder:

This product is totally worth it, I use it everyday and wouldn’t go ANYWHERE without it. and of course my retractable brush. It was $36.00 and I can totally see myelf repeatedly buying it until god knows when. :)

Well I’ll be making my August Faves soon but here are some things I picked up in the last week or so:

1. MAC Blacktrack Fluidline – $32

tried it at my friends place and thought I had to get it because my —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

So after classes I decided to hurry and buy the things I’ve always wanted because I had so much work to do and probably would be thinking about them and not concentrating on work. Plus, life is short and I think make up for me is a prime investment because high quality make up products always produce more than decent returns (granted it doesn’t break you out).

After my finance class, I readily hopped on a tram to MAC to get my MAC 109. For some reason, now, I always want to get out of MAC as fast as possible, I think I’ve been traumatised by MAC SAs in Singapore, but the people in Australia are —–> Read More

hello!

I just got back from an overload of thai express and I don’t feel so good. I’m not good with spicy food AT ALL eventhough my family enjoys it very much. Stomachache – poeey.

Anyways after lunch, I took the mrt to Ang Mo Kio hub again haha to meet my sister and my mom before we went out to dinner with the family and while they were looking at taka jewelrey..something I have no interest in whatsoever, i took a look at body shop, especially the tea tree oil section. A few years back, I did try the tea tree oil foaming cleanser because it was on sale and I always thought that body shop —–> Read More

Hello :)

So you’ve probably had days when you wake up in the morning and the first thing that pops into your head is some good ole retail therapy (Hi retail_therapy haha). Trying to ignore the urge, you eat your breakfast, perhaps jump on the youtube bandwagon for a bit or watch tv, but in the back of your head you’re thinking of reasons why you need to go on some sort of shopping spree. And today was just one of those days. What was my reason? Probably that I’m leaving and that I need to make some movement in my bank account, mostly that I’m actually going to miss my parents and my sis and my bro no matter how —–> Read More

Hello!

This was filmed yesterday and I just want to thank Debbie for including so many free samples in addition to the samples I bought:

Here they are (I transferred some of them to my own jar and re-labled them so they match the rest of my samples in my kit) hehe:

Well, winged butter and fawn was included but I thought that those really didnt match me so what I did was mix them two together, added a bit of sunkissed fair for a more pink/peach undertones and added very little of everyday bronzer to darken the mix just small bit and I made a buttered tan clone so thats why I —–> Read More

Hello!

First of all, :) treehouseglory! you gotta tell me what you wanna know about windows movie maker and I’ll answer it in a post hehe so comment below, ask questions okay so I can answer them. I did quite a lot of advertising in high school because I ran the community service aspect of the school so I had to promote community service to the student body – but photosphop is def. not my forte :) Tell me yeah? I’ll be glad to be of service. Oh and today, I met Julaiha (fiestyskies) and her bestie :D awesome possum, to pass her the blushes before I went out to dinner with my two close friends! She watches my videos too, HI —–> Read More
