Beauty Influencer’s Sunday Column Volume 8: Current Skincare Routine

Today, we’re talking about something close to my heart. Skincare. My mother started me on skincare since I was 16. Something very basic like cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I didn’t realize the importance of it, until I started working. I’m never without my sunscreen and I apply eye cream every morning and night without fail…. Read more »

DIOR

Review: Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation, Powder and Loose Powder

** Warning, lengthy post ** Dior released its Diorskin Star late last year, and in less than a year, there’s another new foundation. I’m very sure you’ve already heard of it by now – nearly every blog I read has mentioned or reviewed this. It’s the Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation (RM191 / 30ml). Accompanying its… Read more »

On Rotation: Face Brushes

I decided to add a new ‘series’ on the blog. Let’s just call it On Rotation, since I’ll be talking about products I’ve been using regularly. Something like current favourites which I always fail to do! While I feature a fair bit of product reviews here, I like to stick to a handful of products for some… Read more »

Sunday Stash Shopping #47 with Shiseido

I’ve been wanting to show you guys how the Shiseido Maquillage Dramatic Mood Veil in RD100 look on my skin. You saw how beautiful it is when I posted it on Instagram and isn’t it about time I did a look using it? Since I did a Bobbi Brown centric look recently, I thought I’d… Read more »

Biotherm

Review: Biotherm Aquasource and Blue Therapy Serum-in-Oil

Do you remember how I raved about the Biotherm Life Plankton Essence? It immediately put Biotherm on my radar! Today, I have 2 more products to show you, and again, I”m impressed! Aquasource (RM149) is a very light gel moisturizer and it’s a must if your skin needs an instant H2O boost. The Blue Therapy… Read more »

Cherry and Melon Pop

Review: Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer in Melon Pop and Cherry Pop

I’ve been seeing these Clinique Pop Lip Colors everywhere. It’s not surprising, since these are really affordable, and the shades available are really pretty. They are pigmented lipstick and lip primer in one. The smoothing primer is infused with the lipstick so that lips look juicier, smoother. The Pop Lip Colors give a modern velvety… Read more »

Beauty Influencer’s Sunday Column Vol.7: How has your makeup style changed over the years?

I love today’s topic. It’s about how our makeup style has changed throughout the years. It’s interesting, looking back, considering I only started wearing makeup when I was pregnant with my first child. That was about 8-9 years back. CRAZY! However, I didn’t really start experimenting since a year before I started the blog, which… Read more »

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpt Envious FOTD

A Casual Look with Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Envious and Little Black Primer

I like my wardrobe to be monochromatic. Recently, I like my makeup to be bright on the lips and minimal elsewhere. I prefer clean looks, so it’s usually flawless skin (try to anyway!), defined lashes without falsies and bold lip. A simple but classic look. Thing is, I have annoying lashes. Very uncooperative and they like to… Read more »

Bobbi Brown Intensive Serum Foundation

Review: Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40

“This will change your skin inside and out” – Bobbi Brown When it’s said that the hybrid foundation Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 is the fusion of skincare and makeup that beautifies the skin from within, I believe it. I have first hand experience of the benefits of Cordyceps Mushroom. It is a traditional… Read more »

Review: Bobbi Brown Face Mist vs Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water

I never really understood face mists until recently. I tried the Caudalie Beauty Elixir a while back and wasn’t really impressed. I liked the cool minty feeling on the skin while some hated it and I didn’t mind the scent while some were completely put off by it. I read good things about the Melvita… Read more »

    Review: Chanel Cream Blush in Intonation

    I finally got it! I’ve been reading about Chanel cream blushes so much and I finally caved. Instead of getting their permanent shades, my heart was taken by this pinky coral in Intonation.

    Sunday Stash Shopping #19: Something Green

    I was putting up my MAC eye shadows for sale on my blog and they were constantly on my vanity desk. So I decided to pull out a few and do a look with them. Now, I’m thinking maybe I should keep these few… because they actually look quite good on. LOL!

    Urban Decay Smoked Look Book 7 Enigma & 8 Cat Eye

    Enigma and Cat Eye are very difficult for me. Maybe it’s due to the shape of my eyes, not enough lid space, or just the lack of a natural crease, they’re just really messy! I think I could make them work better using my way, but I wanted to follow the instructions to a tee…. Read more »

    Dior Addict Lip Glow Review: Color Reviver Balm 004 Coral

    For most people, this is an overpriced tinted lip balm. Let me tell you right off the bat that you don’t need this, but I do like it. I used up the whole tube of the original one, and now, using this, I remember why I liked it so much. For one, it’s from my… Read more »

    My First Diptyque Candle Experience

    BAIES. My first Diptyque candle. Let me tell you that I hesitated – for a long time. It’s a candle, and it’s an expensive scented candle. I was at the store, and the SA was diligently serving me, explaining to me how the candles are made, etc. You know how sometimes you have a weak… Read more »
