As Fall steps into season, my mind starts to wander off to the various Christmas collections that are launching/have launched online and in stores… Before that, there are a couple of lovely beauty products that made it into my September 2015 Beauty Favourites! I’ve sneaked in a fashion item as well because it has been keeping me company pretty much every other day.
August was a month of transition for me as I bade goodbye to my beloved colleagues in my workplace. I’m pretty much the only person left now with all an entirely new team. It was sad but I guess, a new environment sometimes tests your ability to adapt, isn’t it?
Anyway, with all the love that’s showered to me from the different beauty brands (I am truly grateful, thank you), I have discovered some makeup and skincare products that I’m especially drawn to this month! Let’s dig into my August 2015 Beauty Favourites, shall we? 😉
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! ♡

Can you believe it, half the year has gone by already! Now that we are halfway into July, I’m wondering to myself, “what have I been doing for the past 6 months?”.
Anyway, to round up June, here are my beauty picks for the month! June was a month of experimenting with new products here and there and discovering new favourites! Let’s go straight into my June 2015 Beauty Favourites, shall we?
I always start with skincare for an obvious reason – skincare should always come before makeup. This is so as to protect and prep your skin for easy makeup application!
Another month has passed in a blink of an eye I must say. Integrating into work life and juggling between work, personal time, blogging and relationships with people is in fact, not as easy as I thought it would be. Pardon me for my lack of updates including makeup pictorials! I am really trying to schedule them, possibly 2-3 every month so stay with me alright? 😉
So May has been a month of crazy ups and downs. Dealing with people relations was draining me inside out so in terms of my makeup/skincare favourites this month, it was all about the right staples. Well, just to simplify a small aspect of my life, yes?
My skin’s breaking out recently perhaps due to the stresses in my life right now. The remedy for my dull, tired skin is nothing fanciful – The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser. I really LOVE the texture of this because it’s thick yet in a gel texture that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It has an invigorating citrus fragrance that makes me awake and happy in the mornings!
