Hello November, you have secretly, silently, made your way into my life without a sound. I have been crazy busy the whole of October that I didn’t realise that it has been quietly creeping away. Due to my never-ending deadlines, I have been keeping my makeup fairly simple for the entire month, kinda also experimenting with new things which quickly grew to become my staple!
I shall keep this post short and sweet because I am down with a cold now and I’m feeling really blue.. So, let’s look into my October favourites shall we? 😉
Just 8 of these essentials you need in your everyday life if you are not a makeup junkie! I think these 8 products will pretty much get you covered for your everyday makeup if you are looking for a simple, neutral look!
“Revel in the realm of an enchanting fairytale to let your inner princess shine.”
Etude House, the no.1 K-Beauty makeup brand, knows that every woman has a fairytale fantasy and often desire to look pristine and flawless as her favourite Disney princess (I do!!). Therefore, joining forces with Walt Disney, Etude House launches its latest Disney Princess Collection – Princess Happy Ending – to fulfill every woman’s royal dream.
Inspired by the happy endings and the princesses’ characteristics in their fairytales, the coveted collection consists of – Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine and Snow White – which include an assortment of makeup products like mascara, BB cream, nail polishes, lipsticks, blushers and eyeshadows to prepare YOU for the royal highness makeover!
Yes you’ve got it! The World’s largest Etude House flagship boutique is now in Singapore at Wisma Atria (#B1-20/21/22)! You can now realise your princess fantasy with ETUDE! Due to the huge crowd, I did not manage to take pictures of the actual boutique space but here are some captures from the officials.

It’s time for a review on the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner (why can’t it be spelt the right way – freshener =.=) after using it twice a day, every day for about 2 weeks or so. I usually test the product out for about 2 weeks (for skincare) before deciding if it works on my skin.
The Wonder Pore Freshner is labelled as an “Ultra Pore Solution, 10-in-1” that boasts of a plethora of skincare benefits:
Removes leftover makeup – CHECKED!
Lightly acidifies skin to optimal pH 5.5 level
Controls sebum – CHECKED!
Minimises pores – SOMEWHAT CHECKED!
Treats uneven skintone
Maintains skin elasticity
Smoothens skin textire
Get rids of impurities and dead skin cells – CHECKED!
Refreshes and cool the skin – SOMEWHAT CHECKED!
Basically, comparing to the previous formulation, the Wonder Pore Freshner 7-in-1
(see my short comment on it from my old makeup routine), this formula provides more skincare benefits and in my opinion worked a lot better for my skin. Here are the 2 products I received from Etude House Singapore.
Hello hello Monday! 🙂
