Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup

I haven’t had much luck recently with finding an awesome new foundation/cushion foundation that’ll work wonders on my skin and long days – essentially, it’s all about that base (product) hurhurhur. Will my tides change with this Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup foundation? Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup – … Continue reading

Review: La Mer Luminous Lifting Cushion Foundation

Review: La Mer Luminous Lifting Cushion Foundation

So the cushion foundation trend shows no signs of stopping – I mean, even ultimate luxury skincare brand La Mer has now produced its own cushion foundation. Yippee for us! La Mer Luminous Lifting Cushion Foundation   I say… The Packaging: A square compact with rounded corners. There’s nothing groundbreaking about the casing – mostly … Continue reading

Review: Pixi Beauty H2O Skindrink

Review: Pixi Beauty H2O Skindrink

Despite Pixi Beauty’s Glow Mud Cleanser not living up to my expectations, I am still undaunted – I am still on the hunt for another product that’ll make me as happy as its Glow Tonic did (being the incorrigible and fervent beauty junkie I am). Pixi Beauty H2O Skindrink – SGD$34   I say… The … Continue reading

Review: Kose Sekkisei White Washing Foam

So the last facial cleanser I used was like a bad ONS – looked good at first glance, but was weak and didn’t leave me feeling satisfied (not that I do one-night stands hurhurhur). I then switched over to this one in hopes of a more thorough cleanse. Kose Sekkisei White Washing Foam – SGD$35 … Continue reading

Review: Sofina iP Base Essence / Dodai Essence

I’m not sure if it’s my recent trip to Tokyo taking over my mind, or if the resurgence of Japanese cosmetics is a real thang, but I’m finding much more motivation (and products) to review Japanese skincare these days. New to Singapore’s shores are Lauduree (the cosmetics, not the macarons), Albion’s makeup line, Astalift’s makeup … Continue reading

Review: Three Balancing Cleansing Oil

Review: Three Balancing Cleansing Oil

I used to have this misconception that “since I’ve got oily skintype, I shouldn’t use cleansing oils – why do I need the extra oil?” Alas, I couldn’t be more wrong. After all, it’s not as though the oil actually stays on the skin (or worse, absorbed in). Thankfully, the young and silly days are … Continue reading

Review: Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation

Review: Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation

And the list of cushion foundations goes on~! Here’s another cushion foundation that I’ve been trying out, and it’s not from a Korea brand. Instead, it’s from one of my favourite skincare brands – I remember very vividly my days of suffering from puberty pesky pimples, and Clarins was one of the first ever to … Continue reading

Beauty News: Sisley launches the Hydra-Global Serum

Beauty News: Sisley launches the Hydra-Global Serum

It’s a common misconception that those with oily, or combi-oily skintypes don’t require hydration (in fact, it’s something I used to think!). This is sooo untrue. Sometimes, the underlying reason for the overproduction of sebum is the skin’s natural response to trying to compensate for the lack of moisture in the skin – producing the … Continue reading

Review: Shu Uemura Petal Skin Cushion Foundation

Review: Shu Uemura Petal Skin Cushion Foundation

One of the first-ever non-Korean brands to impress me with their rendition of a BB cushion (well in this case, it’s called a cushion foundation) was Shu Uemura – I was a huge fan of the Blanc:Chroma Brightening UV Cushion Foundation. Next, they also won me over with their Petal Skin Foundation. And voila, the … Continue reading

Review: Dr Jart Cicapair Serum [MUST-TRY]

Review: Dr Jart Cicapair Serum [MUST-TRY]

Now I know I’m not the only one who’s prone to that monthly breakout along the jawline and all over the face during periods of stress (and during periods hurhurhur). I’d all but resigned myself to the fact of being a once-a-month moon face, until I came upon this. Like the Pixi Glow Tonic, it’d … Continue reading

Review: Pixi Glow Tonic

Review: Pixi Glow Tonic

During the last few years, there’s been some hype about “treatment essences” – which are (in my opinion) essentially toners with more skincare benefits. The traditional toner has an image of “skin softening”, “stripping”, “removing excess makeup” etc. I guess it’s a case of potayto, potahto – afterall, it’s what your skintype is, and what … Continue reading

Review: Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

Review: Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

During my days as a magazine journo, I attended many a skincare briefing sessions, where I absorbed (like a parched sponge) the massive amounts of skincare and makeup information bestowed upon us by the experts. One piece of advice has stuck firmly in my mind for the last 10 years or so – “anti-ageing skincare … Continue reading
