After all the hype on the Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss, Urban Decay is set to transform our lip game by taking it one note down with the all new Lo-Fi Lip Mousse. I’ve been wearing them every single day and I can’t tell you how much I’m OBSESSED with the formula!
Think weightless, buildable and SUPER-PIGMENTED. I think that’s enough to shove all your current favourite lipsticks aside (for now).
We are already smitten by all the matte lipsticks we can have in the different textures possible – liquid and the regular solid bullets – but let’s welcome the new kid on the block! Housed in a little round shimmering purple compact, the Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse is a total game changer with its airy mousse texture.
When it comes to beauty, the Koreans always strike first. If you think applying blush is easy, think again. The Koreans have now reinvented the steps to achieving the perfect flush with the Blush Layering trend – basically working on a combination of sheer colours to achieve natural blush, contouring and highlighting effects.
And yes, if you’ve been following social media, you’ll definitely not be a stranger to the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection that’s all over your feed. The collection, with natural and luminous hues, is designed perfectly for the Blush Layering trend, with two colours in each of the six unique palettes.
My First Impression
I quite like the shade selection in each palette, because each palette is carefully designed for you to achieve a certain look, whether it be a pure and innocent one, a sun-kissed glowy one or even a well-contoured one. The combination of two ideal colours into one palette, coupled with the blendability of the formula, lets you conveniently create a complexion you desire in the shortest amount of time.
How time flies. It’s the last day of October and we’re stepping into the second last month of the year! Do you know what that means? The Christmas season is coming~ With the holiday collections launching one by one, I can’t contain my excitement for the holiday season! Ever since sneak peeks were released on Instagram some time back, the Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Edit – Surreal Light was something I had my eyes on and I’m so happy it’s added to my (ever-growing) makeup collection now!
The (Instagram) world’s going crazy over marble prints now, so kudos to Hourglass for having marble prints on the palette’s packaging. Beauty junkies all over the world should be thanking the brand now for such an Insta-worthy piece 😉 Not that I’m a huge fan of marble prints, I absolutely adore this as compared to their usual metallic ones because I don’t have my fingerprints seen all over the casing.
One of the latest makeup trend brings you perfectly sculpted and highlighted cheekbones. It’s all about detailed contouring besides just adding a flush of colour to your cheeks! And of course, not to forget, strobing! If contouring is too difficult, let’s just focus on strobing, basically, the act of bringing light to the high points on the face. The best palette for your experiment is none other than the BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette!
A collaboration with Jaclyn Hill, an American Professional Makeup Artist and a YouTube personality, this limited edition face palette features five iconic shades for that customised glow you want. The palette comes in a luxurious golden metal case with a white thick sticker plastered on the cover. I really love the simplicity of the design for it embodies the meaning of the palette – champagne glow.
Fast-fashion giant, H&M, has been securing its foothold in Singapore for a year now with its retail outlets planted in every major mall in the country. I’m hopeless when it comes to retail therapy, especially at H&M. Guilty as charged! I was beyond thrilled when the Swedish fashion house lined its flagship store in Orchard (Somerset to be exact) with its full range of makeup and beauty products! Makeup junkies can now rejoice as there is a brand new avenue to satiate your addiction! And the catch: nothing is priced over SGD20. (Oh, thank you H&M for not making me break the bank.)
Singapore is the first country in South-east Asia to welcome the H&M Beauty Department. Expect over 700 individual products comprising items such as makeup, hair products, moisturisers, nail polishes and beauty tools! As a makeup fanatic/junkie, of course I couldn’t miss swatching and hauling at the beauty section, and here’s my very humble haul, comprising of products right up my alley.
