If there is only one beauty brand I can use for the rest of my life, it would be Tom Ford Beauty. I first fell in love with the brand for its lipsticks. One of the first few luxury lipsticks I bought was the Tom Ford Lip Color Shine in Willful. I didn’t know much about TF’s lipsticks, but I really wanted to own one because of the luxe packaging. Then I remember being disappointed at how the lipstick didn’t have the iconic “TF” engraving, haha! Fast forward many years now, I’m finding myself falling deeper in love with the brand.
Whenever Tom Ford Beauty launches something, I get all excited! You can be assured of the packaging, quality and texture of the products. Recently, a new line of liquid lipsticks has been populating my vanity table and it’s the Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Luxe, both Matte and Vinyl.
Matte lipsticks are sprouting everywhere from the beauty brands in the market. I say that it’s a lip trend that will stay for a while more before someone decides to bring back the gloss and shine. It’s easy to find a matte lipstick in the market but often challenging finding one that doesn’t dry out the lips.
The festive season is upon us and with all the holiday sales going on, I’m sure everyone is preparing Christmas presents for their loved ones! I personally haven’t started shopping but I will, soon! What about you?

If you’re not sure what to get for your beauty junkie friends, perhaps you’d want to read on for some practical and inexpensive gift ideas.
Illamasqua has been one of the less-talked-about makeup brands, especially since it has withdrawn from the Singapore market. It’s a pity because this brand stocks one of the most pigmented lipsticks and eyeshadows! Well, all hope is not lost because Illamasqua is stocked at Look Fantastic Singapore, an online beauty boutique that brings you closer to discovering more quality beauty brands.
Before we indulge in all the holiday goodness, let’s zoom in into one of the most exciting makeup launch from the brand – IllamasquaTheReign of Rock Collection. In collaboration with Wonderland magazine, Amelia Windsor, a British model, takes centre stage as the face of the campaign.
The collection celebrates a 10-year reign of convention-defying beauty and the advocation of self-expression through its innovative textures in the line-up with rock and roll inspired artistry led by Director of Artistry, Pablo Rodriguez.
Matte lipsticks are not going out of trend any time soon as we see beauty brands coming up with interesting formulas and textures. If you’re a beauty junkie looking for a bit of fun in your lipstick game, try metallic mattes.
Whether you’re a makeup junkie, the Too Faced melted Matte-tallic, with its good range of shades are sure to allow you to take your makeup look from day to night. Drench your lips in a rich, brushed metal finish with this velvety matte formula for a luxurious plush wear. It’s lightweight, comfortable to wear and long-lasting too, which makes for an ideal lipstick if you hate to do touch-ups (like me).
