Hey Everyone!

The perfect sunscreen for me is one that is lightweight and blends super well so that it leaves no white overcast and still offers me the protection I need. It’s been blistering hot in Singapore these days and a sunscreen is of utmost importance for everyone to be integrating in their skincare routine. A great sunscreen prevents an array of skin issues like pigmentation and even wrinkles further on in life. The main issue is that most sunscreens look super white on the skin and are too oily which makes make-up junkies like me super sad because how am I supposed to put make-up on something like that? Thankfully, I’ve found two sunscreens both from KOSÉ that are super lightweight and leave no overcast at all. They’re the KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Milk SPF 50 PA++++ and KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel SPF 50 PA++++ that I’ll be reviewing today.

Today I’m doing a review of a new foundation find – the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 PA++. I’ll be giving you my honest opinion and a quick tutorial on how best to apply it. Foundation has always been a must-have for me – it corrects uneven skin and redness and provides a neat base for the rest of your make-up. Bobbi Brown thought why not mix the best of skincare with an amazing foundation so they came up with this – the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation.

The coolest thing about this foundation is that Bobbi Brown has tapped into TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to come up with ingredients like Cordyceps, Bamboo Grass and Lychee Extracts. Cordyceps is a type of mushroom that has super health enhancing properties and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Bobbi Brown has combined these ingredients with signature skin-tone correct pigments in a process called bi-phase cold fusion that allows the skincare actives to stay potent and to fuse seamlessly with foundation pigments. What you get is a super fine emulsion that floats over the skin surface so that your skin looks smoother, firmer and more radiant. As Bobbi Brown says -”This will change your skin – inside and out”. All in all, it’s a very interesting concept.

I’m always on the hunt for a good sunscreen that does well under make-up. Most sunscreens out there leave a very oily residue and a white overcast when applied which often leaves your foundation slipping and sliding when you apply it over top. I’ve been using Chanel’s newest sunscreen lately – the Chanel Sublimage La Protection UV in SPF 50 and have been loving the light texture that almost disappears when applied. This sunscreen is great under make-up which I appreciate so here’s my review!

The Chanel Sublimage La Protection UV in SPF 50 combines both anti-ageing skincare and sunscreen into one with an advanced formula that targets DNA and the stem cell microenvironment. For anti-ageing action, Chanel has incorporated Vanilla planifolia, vanilla from Madagascar known for its regenerating properties that helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles while liquorice root extract lessens pigmentation and dark spots. It is also known for its creamy texture that turns into a powdery matte finish after application.

Today I’m going to do a review on a classic lipstick – the Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle. I’m an avid fan of Chanel’s Rouge Allure range so I was excited to try out the Rouge Coco range as they have been re-formulated! The Rouge Coco range is known for being a ready to wear and iconic lipstick that melts on your lips with vibrant and lasting color. Chanel sent me two shades – the classic Mademoiselle and red Gabrielle. I’ll be doing a giveaway on one of the lipsticks at the end of this post so stay tuned!

As mentioned, the formula of the Rouge Coco lipsticks are now revamped to be more comfortable and have a melt away texture. Using their Chanel Sensorial Analysis, Make-up Formulation and Physical Expertise laboratories, they have used physical, sensory and emotional characteristics to guide their new formulation. Amongst the 33 developed and 19 tested, 1 formula came out supreme to provide an amazing texture. With a specific wax, lips are now dressed in a softer veil that glides on and melts away. The butter in these lipsticks are also composed of three plant waxes (jojoba, mimosa and sunflower) that provides hydrating and protective properties to the lipstick. Last of all, a polymer film with silicone microbeads fills wrinkles and rough areas to decrease bleeding and feathering. It is truly an amazing formula and one that I have been very impressed with.

I’ve recently added a brand new serum to my nightly skincare routine and decided that today I wanted to share it with you! It’s the new The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Overnight Triple Boost Serum. A serum is a skincare product that  you apply after your toner and before your moisturiser. It typically has a higher concentration of a particular active ingredient that does all sorts of different things from brightening your skin to making it more hydrated.

A brighter complexion is on everyone’s wish list. You can either DIY it – they say a mix of lemon juice, egg whites and honey works – or you can simply get a good serum to do the trick. I have been using The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso Overnight Triple Boost Serum for a while and I love that I wake up in the morning brighter and more hydrated. In total, it increases hydration, brightness and translucency of your skin.

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.
