Who’s having K-drama, Descendants of the Sun, withdrawal symptoms? I am! The chemistry between Song Joong-Ki and Song Hye-Kyo is simply unbeatable and it makes you just want to continue one episode after another. While watching, did you notice Dr. Kang Mo Yeon’s (played by actress Song Hye-Kyo, also LANEIGE’s brand ambassador) various lipstick shades throughout the drama? Thanks to LANEIGE, there’s no need to second guess the shades on her lips!
The flawless makeup of the Korean actress in the drama is not hard to decipher, and they are none other than LANEIGE’s best-sellers – BB Cushion and Two Tone Lip Bar! Speaking of which, LANEIGE has launched their NEW Two Tone Collection which includes products used in the drama! Want to have juicy lips like Dr. Kang Mo Yeon? Time to check the collection out!
Woohoo, it’s the second episode of LANEIGE Meets Fashion! This time, K-Beauty giant, LANEIGE, is collaborating with PLAYNOMORE, a brand designed by Chae-yeon Kim, whose signature SHYGIRL bags have garnered a lot of attention from K-pop celebrities and models!
I personally cannot comprehend the hype for the bags, because I’m not one who likes such adorably loud prints on my bags, but when you have such prints on makeup, it’s a whole new different story! Let’s explore the LANEIGE X PLAYNOMORE collection hitting our shores this September!~
Woohoo!~ With the overwhelming number of beauty brands in the market, it is no wonder we consumers are all spoilt for choices! So… What made into my July 2015 Beauty Favourites? 😉 As usual, there is an equal emphasis placed on skincare and makeup products for this month and it wasn’t easy narrowing down to these 6 items, so let’s get into them, shall we?
Remember the LANEIGE (reformulated) Sleeping Mask that I was excitedly talking about the last time? I cannot be happier to have the LANEIGE Mini Pore Waterclay Mask join my family of masks to protect my skin! With a mud-clay texture but a watery consistency, this clay mask helps a lot in removing skin impurities, while tightening the pores. Even though this may make your skin feel a little tight when it dries, the feeling of tautness goes away after washing off the mask. Full review here.
Born with sensitive skin, it’s not easy to find products that work for a long time. The Body Shop recently relaunched their Drops of Youth™ Concentrate, a serum that’s created to reverse the first signs of aging. I haven’t got to reviewing this proper so I guess I’ll just pen my thoughts here!
The serum is rather thick in consistency, so a little goes a long way for your entire face. It absorbs quickly without leaving any feeling of stickiness as well, given its viscosity. Enriched with plant stem cells, the product helps to optimise your skin’s youthful beauty by helping to enhance surface skin renewal – the skin’s natural process of replacing the uppermost dead skin cells with new ones beneath. Indeed, this is one of those products that gives you smoother, firmer and healthier skin! 🙂
Enough with the skincare, let’s get into our favourite, makeup!
I have talked about this countless number of times and I cannot emphasise enough how much I adore the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control! The original whitening one doesn’t suit my skin but this, this is so good that I have finished at least 3 cushion refills already! It is semi-matte, gives a decent coverage and lasts all day!
The one that’s shown below is the Whitening BB Cushion by the LANEIGE x Play No More collection which will be launched in September!~ Stay tuned!
I have always been loyal to my Urban Decay Primer Potion if you haven’t realised by now. Lately, my UDPP has been stashed aside to give way to the Inglot Eye Shadow Keeper. It comes in a small black tube indicative of the Inglot brand and has a lighter texture. It dispenses as a beigey substance but blends colourless on the lids. As the name suggests, this allows you to keep your eyeshadows in place for the entire day!
A new blush that I am obsessed with is the Too Faced Love Flush 16-Hour Long Lasting Blush. With the heart-shaped packaging and the beautiful bunnies details, need I say more? The name of the blush says it all as well, it needs no explanation! Full review and swatches of all the shades here if you wish!
And of course, I can’t live without a lipstick. July was being obsessed over sheer but moisturising lipsticks and the one that topped my chart is none other than the Givenchy Le Rouge-A-Porter in 206 Corail Decollete. It comes in a sleek leather casing, with a very moisturising formula, what else can you not love about this?
Do you already love any of the products mentioned here? If so, let me know in the comments below! Till next time!~
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡

Are you having pore-blems (pun intended) like me? I battle with open and enlarged pores all the time, simply because the weather is unforgiving and I wasn’t born with good skin.
Lucky for me, I get to tackle the problem of enlarged pores with LANEIGE’s newest skincare launches – Mini Pore Waterclay Mask and Mini Pore Blurring Tightener.
April to me has a rather significant meaning. It was the month of transition for me, from a graduate to a full-time working adult. It feels surreal that I have now entered the workforce, joining every adult in their morning rush and their 9-5 (technically 9-6) schedule. As such, I haven’t had much time to play with all my new toys (makeup) sitting on the vanity shelf. It has just been grabbing a few new products and sticking to them for a good week or two.
Thus, April’s Beauty Favourites is all about convenient and basic needs, comprising of a few makeup and skincare essentials.
