Hey Everyone!

Lancôme launches a new mascara today – the Lancôme Grandiôse Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara! I was given this mascara to review pre-launch and I only had time to do it today so I thought I would instead voice out my honest first impressions of it. This mascara is where  Lancôme really bends rules because there’s a unique twist to it.

If you haven’t heard of this mascara yet, the Lancôme Grandiôse Wide Angle Fan Effect Mascara boasts the ability to do all three most prized effects – lengthen, curl and volumize. Lancôme has come up with the 1st patent pending “Swan Neck” wand that helps to access all lashes from corner to corner, offers full lash coverage from root to tip and produces an evenly fanned out lash fringe. The formula of the mascara is also innovative in that it is enriched with Lancôme’s exclusive Native Rose-Cell Extract.

I am attracted to Sephora like bees to honey. It is probably my favourite store, ever. My boyfriend literally has to steer me away from that store and I’m sure you all feel the same way! Although Sephora brand products are not the first thing I choose to look at, I always do notice how innovative they are in their products. They are extremely on trend, probably much faster than other brands and they’ve got an extensive range. Whereas other brands have their regular mascaras, Sephora launches a split mascara wand that hugs the bottom and top of your lashes. Similarly, now they’ve taken another step for innovation and have launched new nail polish removers for two problems that we always face – removing polish off our feet and removing glitter nail polish! In this post, I thought I’d do a review on both.

I am a total Aveda fan at the moment and I’m sure you have seen how their Smooth Infusion products have totally transformed my hair. Seriously, I love how their products feel so natural and they work! If you don’t know yet, the art and science of pure flower and plant essences is the core of Aveda. Its beauty products are alive with the life force of plants and Aveda goes to exceptional lengths to be respectful to the earth. Ever since a hairstylist founded Aveda in 1978, Aveda’s beauty products –haircare, skincare and aromas-have been professionally developed and clinically tested, delivering high performance products that balance beauty and well-being for each individual.

Smelling good and fresh is so important, especially in this hot and humid weather. For me, perfumes are great but they always fade on me and aren’t great solutions to smelling fresh throughout the day. Plus, you don’t just want to pile on fragrances on top of a stench – that never works because you’re not eliminating the cause of the odor.

I’ve been recently coming back into the habit of spraying on a deodorant right after a shower and it’s a practice that I really believe everyone should get into. It can be so embarrassing to smell and you have something important to rush to in the evening like a date or meeting even if you can’t help it. To always be reassured, my current favourite to do the job is the Rexona Shower Clean FRESH Anti-perspirant Deodorant. It not only eliminates odor but it controls sweat too – which something perfumes cannot do.

Today I just wanted to let you in on a new skincare range I’m trying out! As you know, I am still on the road to recovery with my acne and I need something that is great for oily & really sensitive skin like mine. I decided to try out the Curél Sebum Trouble Care skincare range because the range claims to control both skin sensitivity and sebum production. I did some research beforehand and I found out that a dual function is important because if excess sebum on the skin is not properly removed, the sebum turns into a harmful substance that irritates the skin surface and inner layers, worsening skin sensitivity overall. That’s why you need a range that does both. Another cause of sensitive skin is a lack of  ceramide which helps your skin retain moisture and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier against external irritants. Of course skin sensitivity can also be caused by diet, hormones, and a change in pH level too.

I am sure we have all heard of mainstream nail polish brands like O.P.I, Essie and China Glaze, but what about indie nail polish brands? Indie nail polish brands tend to be better for you since often they are handmade, 5 – free (meaning that they do not contain camphor, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde or formaldehyde resins) or 3-free and sometimes cruelty free as well. They are like secret gems in the nail polish world made by passionate and creative people! You can’t find indie nail polish brands just anywhere.

In fact, I don’t know of a place that you can in Singapore except an online store called www.beautysofly.com where I got all these nail polishes I’m going to show you today! It’s an amazing site that has a load of indie nail polish brands you should check out as well as a variety of mainstream brands too. I love the variety on there and shipping is quick and efficient! Let’s get started and explore my favourite glitter ones!
