Hey Everyone!

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.

Today I just wanted to let you in on a pretty cool eyeliner find – the Sephora Smart Liner! Unlike your regular pen shapes, this one is bent and is supposed to follow the curve of your hand so that it feels like you have more control. I’ve basically finished mine and I reckon it would be perfect for beginners. Let’s find out more!

First of all, this is my eye without any eyeliner. I’ve added some eyeshadow because I don’t normally go out the house without any on.

When you pop the cap open, the tip of the eyeliner is actually like a sharp felt tip marker. It in fact is very similar to the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner. I’m glad it is because brush tips are not suitable for beginners because they can be harder to control whereas a felt tip is much more user friendly.

I’m glad to say that my skin is finally getting better and better. That means I get to be more experimental with my skincare! I am truly a huge fan of Aveda products. Their Dry Remedy™shampoo has literally healed my hair after so much color and treatment damage and their hair products actually work. Even my boyfriend uses their products now on his hair! But hair isn’t the only thing that Aveda is known for, they have skincare ranges as well! In my last post, I visited the Aveda Experience Centre at Ngee Ann City for the Aroma Sensory Journey and Hairstyling Ritual where an Aveda daymaker chose the specific products that suited me best!

Hey Everyone!

bathina

I confess, I’m obsessed. When I pop the cap open and smell Bathina, it takes me back to my Uni days. I wore this scent during my 2nd year of Uni when my friend gave it to me as a gift. I started wearing it after my shower daily and after that, I loved it so much, I kept wearing it out. For a while until the bottle finished, it became my classic and signature scent. That says a lot since I’m quite picky with..well how I smell.

Benefit’s Bathina is just one of those scents you can’t forget. It’s something that is perfectly sweet and flirty but still complex and complicated. It smells amazing, and to this, it’s for sure an understatement. No joke, girls. So when I saw the new bottle, you can probably say I was thrilled. The old bottle was just a pink tall glass bottle that was pretty generic. Now, it’s looks like a pink genie is going to pop out of the bottle and grant you three wishes. Now that’s an improvement.

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.
