Hey Everyone!

Today I thought I would do a review of Shu Uemura’s latest lip lacquers – the Shu Uemura Laque Supreme. These are inspired by premium japanese lacquer ware and the packaging is gorgeous. I received the laque supreme gift box consisting of three of Shu Uemura’s laque supreme colors. The box itself has been created in collaboration with Yamada Heiando which is an expert Japanese lacquer ware brand who are purveyors to the Imperial Household Agency since 1919! Each lip piece has been beautifully adorned with high quality and traditional red lacquer to a standard only achievable by a true artisan.

Sephora sends me some of their latest products from their exclusive brands, pretty much monthly. I usually post these amazing boxes on instagram but I have lately wanted to blog about them because they’re for sure an amazing opportunity for you and I to discover new or cool things! This month is all about Skincare in their Skin Rescue box. I can’t wait to show you what’s inside. Plus, there’s an exciting giveaway for the famous Foreo Luna cleansing device at the end of this post so stay tuned.

Let’s see what’s in here! I got really excited this month because I finally get to try some Kate Somerville skincare products. I’ve seen them in a few youtube favourites videos and on the counter for being really effective. We also have some goodies from Peter Thomas Roth, Caudalie, and Algenist. For this post, I want to show you the products that I’m most excited to try.

Today I want to talk about my current skincare routine! I thought I’d do this quick post before showering and getting ready for bed. The skincare range I’ve been using is the Ziaja sensitive skin range. I have been using this range for a few weeks already and I have really noticed improvements in my skin – mainly in the smoothness of my skin and the size of my pores!

Globally, Ziaja produces over 1,000 types of products with 45 of Ziaja’s best-selling products available here in Singapore.

Hello 2015! I just realised that this will be my first blog post of 2015. Woot! Today I thought I would try and do the classic smokey eyes and nude lips look. All celebs are sporting it on the red carpet and it’s just one of those never out of fashion styles. Personally, I never wear nude lips out. I always think I look half dead so this was for sure something that made me a little uncomfortable. You’re also probably used to seeing me in bright reds and fuchsias so I thought this would be a great change (not to mention experimental progress for me!). My chosen weapon of choice is Brigitte cosmetics.

How good would it be if you could max out the time you need to shave again? For me, it’s always such a hassle and dealing with shaving creams and razors are not fun. So after exploring other hair removal options, I thought I’d give IPL Hair Removal a try. IPL hair removal is different in that it uses light to slow down the growth of hair overtime and the hair also grows back much lighter and thinner than before. In this way, you won’t have to shave so much anymore and it’s more effective over the long run. Ginza Calla at Plaza Singapura is a popular place to have IPL hair removal because not only do they carry out the treatment for you but they are all about post treatment care as well.

I’ve always been more of a foundation girl, much more than bb or cc creams. It’s just that my skin has always been on perpetual breakout mode these days so I feel like I need the coverage and finding a good coverage foundation can be difficult. Some can feel too thick resulting in a cakey mess or others just don’t hit the coverage spot. One foundation I’ve been loving is Dior’s latest foundation – the Dior Diorskin Star that I have been in love with!

I was invited to try out this foundation first at the Dior counters. The Dior sales assistant told me that this foundation is special because of the particles inside that reflect light on all dimensions – similar to how a sphere reflects light. They also had this device at the counter that measures automatically what shade you are. I was a mix of two shades – 010 and 020 but I find that I always pick the lightest shade so I went with the darker one. It’s a little too dark though. As much as I love Dior foundations, I feel like they never have my perfect shade so this ends up being a little darker than I’d like. But the weird thing is, when I first apply it on my skin, it looks really fair.  A few minutes pass, it does change color a little bit resulting in a darker tone. That’s I guess something to keep in mind if you want to get one for yourself.
