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 »

Updates and Random Thoughts

It’s been a while since I dumped my random thoughts on the blog. My daily life is quite a routine, where I’d take care of the little baby, and chauffeur the girls to and from school / classes. Then, at least 5 days a week, I’d try to get my workout in, whenever I have… Read more »

    Review: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

    Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. From the name, you’d expect this concealer to look naked on your face, feels like nothing and yet covers every imperfection. Urban Decay promises just that. A full coverage concealer that feels and looks like second skin. You can build up the coverage layer by layer and… Read more »

    Black

    I wanted to try something different. Perhaps a look that makes me look like someone else. A look that makes me uncomfortable. So I decided to do this. Brows shaped using a dark grey pencil liner, a graphic eye done using liquid liner, and false lashes so thick they look like worms from afar. Nothing on… Read more »

    I forgot to write about these 2 blushes. I bought them when I was still a full time working mother. It means these 2 blushes have been with me for more than a year. And you know what? I haven’t used them much at all. I bought them at Sasa and I think they were… Read more »

    Review: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks and Moondust Eyeshadow

    The only products I’ve tried from Urban Decay are their pencil liners (which I love), pencil shadows (which I hated) and the Naked palettes. I was totally in love with the first Naked palette … so much that I had to have the second one. When the third one came along though, I felt a… Read more »

L’Intemporel de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette however, is definitely something that tugs at your heart. Even when I’ve read mixed… Read more »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #43: Smoke

    I like the convenience of eye shadow sticks. Swipe, blend, go. There are 2 I really like, one from Bobbi Brown and another from Laura Mercier. Bobbi Brown’s stay longer on my lids, but the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are creamier and easier to blend. I only have Amethyst and Khaki, and am looking at… Read more »

    Review: Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening

    I am always game for brightening skin care. I usually rotate it with my anti ageing and I always use a serum for hydration. When it comes to brightening skin care from Estee Lauder, the name Cyber White pops into my head. It has been around for quite a few years. So I got curious… Read more »
