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.

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 that old perfume you rediscovered in your mom’s closet and wonder why she never wears it. Its a great start to the surprise!

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 high end brands like Lancome to Clinique and niche brands like Yadah. It’s absolutely perfect for people looking to try new products every month or to expand your beauty knowledge about what’s swimming out there. And, hey who doesn’t like surprises delivered to your doorstep, either that or you, my friend, have a crush on the mailman. I wouldn’t blame ya. So let’s see what’s in January’s Trove shall we?

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 what’s in the box, shall we? I couldn’t tell anyone until Dec. 2nd, but today is December 2nd so yay!

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.

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 collection as a welcome gift. So here’s a little haul from Illamasqua and my very first. Let’s go!
