Review: IOPE Dual Lip Blender

Review: IOPE Dual Lip Blender

I remember mentioning in a Straits Times interview some time back that I’d take a bunch of cheaper-priced lipsticks over a single luxury lipstick – these days, I’ve changed my tune. I’ll take a bunch of any-priced lipsticks hurhurhur. Just cos I’m a lippie junkie. Tsk. I’m a hopeless caseeeeee. Anyhoos, when I first saw … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Essential Skin Boosting Serum

Review: IOPE Essential Skin Boosting Serum

During one of my travels to Korea, I’d stumbled upon an outlet store where everything was at least 30% off – that was pure beauty junkie heaven! Heh. It was shelves upon shelves of all the Kbeauty brands you know and love, and even some that I hadn’t heard of before. I decided that it … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Air Cushion Blusher

Review: IOPE Air Cushion Blusher

Ooh baybeh -this is super exciting! I’ve always been a fan of IOPE’s Air Cushion XP, and now, there’s a blusher version YAYYYYY. It comes in two shades, but I decided to be less adventurous this time (in addition to the fact that my Peripera Cushion Blush is also running out), and opted for the … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Multi Vitamin Ampoule

Review: IOPE Multi Vitamin Ampoule

I know I’m usually prone to impulse buying, but this one has got to take the cake – I took one look at it and grabbed it off the shelf. Why? Cos of the packaging (dropper tool + peach colour? I’m in!) as well as the name – Multi Vitamin Ampoule. Seriously, there’s no way … Continue reading

Round-Up: 7 Korean Beauty Trends in 2014

Round-Up: 7 Korean Beauty Trends in 2014

Since it’s almost the end of 2014, I decided to do a round-up post of the beauty trends this year. While the K-wave has taken the world by storm in terms of ridiculously good-looking boy bands/girl groups with catchy music grooves and snazzy moves, there is another industry that’s being invaded by products from Kimchi-land … Continue reading

Round-up: 5 Treatment Toners to Try

Round-up: 5 Treatment Toners to Try

Now I just realised that I haven’t done a proper round-up of products since my last BB cushion face-off, and since I’m in a mood (aka I have verbal diarrhoea but no unfortunate soul to inflict it upon), you guys shall be it~ I’ve tried my fair share of treatment toners / watery essences / … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Retigen Essence Dual Concealer

Review: IOPE Retigen Essence Dual Concealer

I’ve been crazy busy this week, having gone to the IDS Clinic official opening on Monday and Beauty Asia on Tuesday where I made friends with the hamsome Korean nail manicurist. Of course, that has taken a chunk of time outta my sleep, which is why I’ve decided to (finally)  blog about this concealer that … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Moisture Skin Soft Peeling Gel

Review: IOPE Moisture Skin Soft Peeling Gel

Fine, so it’s been firmly established that I’m a first care serum fanatic – I’ve suddenly realised that I’ve amassed quite an army of scrubs and peels – sitting on my newly-renovated sink is the Dermalogica Daily Microexfoliant, Sulwhasoo White Ginseng Brightening Mask (which is actually a gentle exfoliating scrub), Amore Pacific Live Enzyme Scrub … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Complete Care CC Cream

Happy Monday everybardy! Today marks day 1 of a 3-day work week in Singapore, cos we’ve got Hari Raya on Thursday (Selamat Hari Raya in advance!) and our National Day on Friday (Majulah Singapuraaaaa!). And for once, it’s one of the rare occassions that I don’t have to work on a public holiday. It’s time … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Moisture Skin Cleansing Foam

Review: IOPE Moisture Skin Cleansing Foam

Andddd I’m back! I touched down at 1am this morning and I’m back at work. Major auto-pilot zombie mode on, I tell you. I haven’t unpacked much of my goodies from my luggage – I did throw them somewhat haphazardly into a stack though. Plus, my motherload 12kg box is still on its way back … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Air Cushion XP

Review: IOPE Air Cushion XP

It’s mournday again… It’s even more mournful after a long weekend where I did absolutely nothing except sit in front of the PC, prop my legs up and devour episodes of Masterchef while munching on potato chips and pretend that they were risotto/frittata/paella and what-nots. nom nom. Since I clearly stewed in my own rancid … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Body Clinic Shaping Effecter

Review: IOPE Body Clinic Shaping Effecter

Weekends are the equivalent of one-night stands – you enjoy yourself during Saturdays and Sundays, stuffing your face and doing whatever pleases you without clock-watching. Come Monday and you feel like shit and go “oh gawd whyyyyyy did I eat so much?!” This weekend, we held a surprise birthday party for my girlfriend by crashing … Continue reading

Review: IOPE Whitegen Cleansing Foam

Review: IOPE Whitegen Cleansing Foam

Depending on how much I like the cleanser, I can take 2-4 months to finish it. My last cleanser was The Face Shop’s Flebote Hydra Soft Cleansing Foam, and it took about 3 months to almost finish it – almost finish in the sense that I don’t bother to yoga twist and flex the tube … Continue reading

Iope Twist-On Highlighter

Iope Twist-On Highlighter

Every time I do a post on a highlighter, my natural instinct is to take another dig at Twilight, but hey, jokes can run stale after a while. However, diamonds do last forever, so Edward Cullen glittering ridiculously like an overexposed diamond will always be my go-to jab. (and bam! I just took another shot … Continue reading

The Battle of the BB Cushions

The Battle of the BB Cushions

In celebration of my new makeshift lightbox (a combination of acrylic and cardboard sheets) and my new S95 canon camera, I’ve decided to do a more elaborate blog post on my BB cushions. My collection of BB cushions 😀 L-R: Hera UV Mist Cushion Cover C21, Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion 13 True Beige, IOPE … Continue reading
