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.

I have to say that this post has been ridiculously overdue. Why? Well, these brushes are something that I can’t live without and even though I’ve shouted them out instagram, basically told everybody I know to get them and  have just fell in love entirely, I have yet to write a proper blog post explaining my love for them so here it is. 13rushes is an incredible brush brand, with an incredible passion and an even more incredible product.

It has been a proper 7 months or so since I first laid hands on my first set of 13rushes brushes so that being said, I pretty much know how these babies work. 13rushes is a totally cruelty-free brush brand, meaning that no animals were harmed in the making of them. They are totally synthetic, extremely soft and fluffy and will make you possibly squeal with delight when you receive them in the mail. The founders of 13rushes are amazing people, YuHui and Charlene, and they are so passionate have put in so much effort to the creation of these brushes that it really shows. But to be honest, I was skeptical at first. I’ve had such bad experiences with synthetic brushes that many of my other brushes were goat or squirrel hair. I initially thought that animal hair picks up color the best and synthetic brushes are horrible at blending powder products.

I got back from Hong Kong just a couple of days ago and I had an amazing time so I thought I would share my experiences with you here! I went with Gushcloud and a few other  really cool bloggers who I got the privilege of getting to know more and we had a jam packed itinerary that you can for sure follow the next time you’re in Hong Kong.

We flew to Hong Kong via a very comfortable flight on Cathay Pacific! It’s just three hours and I passed time watching movies on the plane. Let’s see, I watched Anchorman 2 and half of Saving Mr. Banks and they were so good. Before we knew it, we landed in Hong Kong. I really love how short the flight is to Hong Kong from Singapore!

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’ve been getting used to using an eyebrow pencil lately and have been really liking the strong brow look. I usually use an eyebrow powder but at times I feel that it can’t do super sharp lines and it’s pigmentation is obviously lacking too. It’s good as a natural brow but for something with a little kick, I’ve been using a pencil. Probably the most popular eyebrow pencil is a particular one from M.A.C called Spiked. I’ll be doing a little tutorial on how easy strong brows can be!

First of all, the M.A.C Spiked Eye Brows Pencil is pretty amazing. It comes as a thin pencil that is thankfully automatic so you don’t have to sharpen it. It also has quite a narrow tip so that drawing specific lines is quite convenient. Spiked is a chocolate brown that is quite dark and more suitable for very dark brown to black hair tones. Although it’s really whatever floats your boat. A general rule of thumb is that your brows should be no more than 1 or 2 shades lighter than your hair color.
