Hey Everyone!

These last few days, I have had the pleasure of trying out the brand new Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Skincare range! It will be out in June 2014 on Singapore shores and so far, it really is working for me in the oil control department. I thought I would share more about this range with you especially if you are an oily skin sufferer like me. I always end up looking like a disco ball at the end of a long day but I have seen improvement with this range in my oil production. I am also surprised at how fast I could see results.

The first star of the show is the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser (SGD $43, 150ml). What is amazing about this range I feel is that it is not only fragrance free, it’s oil-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free and paraben-free. If you have sensitive skin, this is a dream skin care range and is great for people like me who are very prone to breaking out. I really like how it’s taken the effort to be free of all these potentially irritating characteristics.  This cleanser is armed with two active ingredients – the Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract that helps skin store and retain moisture – even in the driest weather conditions. This plant actually thrives in super dry environments in the Australian Outback and it also has high concentrations of potassium. The cleanser also contains Lemon Fruit Extract that has astringent and antiseptic qualities that help freshen and stimulate sluggish skin.

At the moment, I’m slowly expanding my Dior makeup collection and to be honest, I am really starting to fall in love. It’s probably the chic packaging and amazing line of products that they offer and I never really dived in until now. Today I’ll be talking about their newest release- the Dior Transat Summer 2014 makeup collection. When I see the Dior Transat in its entirety – the first thing that comes to mind is nautical. They’re really playing around with the ideas of a luxury ocean liner with sailor elements and also natural or neutral colors. Let’s take a look at what I got!

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 are all readily available here so here’s my haul (so far). I’m sure I will be getting more as the week goes by!

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 features eye-lashes, Shu Uemura’s new Supreme matte lipstick and the gel pencil eyeliner. Shu Uemura’s International Artistic Director, Kakuyasu Uchiide, says the collection isall about graphical eyes for our 60s mood revival – high impact, with a fashion reference, retro-colours, and playing with liner to create a point at the corner,”. Here’s a look at a few of them!

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.

Hey Everyone!

hi

It’s always a good thing to hear about new products a little earlier than everyone else, especially when they haven’t hit the stores yet. So, here’s a new one for you –  the Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle and Pore Reducing Cream (let’s refer to it as the PWPRC)! This new cream from Kiehl’s will only be available in stores next month (in May) and is a brand new anti-ageing and wrinkle fighter cream!

But you’re probably thinking  – Roseanne, you’re far from getting wrinkles, you’re only 22! True but did you know that the loss of elasticity in your skin begins in our twenties? Maintaing elasticity is fundamental to preserving our supple faces – it keeps us from forming facial lines. The Kiehl’s PWPRC is unique because it uses two ingredients – Copper PCA and Calcium PCA. I mean have you ever heard of copper skincare?
