Cleansing is a vital step to anyone’s skincare routine. It is particularly important for a daily makeup user like me. After a full day at work, I’m always excited to go home and indulge in some pampering. This includes spending some time on my skincare routine. Now in my mid-twenties (omg how time flies!!!), I pay extra attention on the products I use on my skin.
I wear waterproof mascara daily – the Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof. Being a waterproof formula, it’s not easy to find a cleanser that effectively removes all traces of this. I’m so glad that the Drunk Elephant Slaai™ Makeup-melting Butter Cleanser can!
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.
TOM FORD eye quads have been one of my most prized possessions in my makeup collection. I don’t have many – just two – because it’s not easy to captivate my heart especially since I work with so many colours and textures daily. I’ve had <Cocoa Mirage> for a couple of years now and was thinking of adding another quad to my TOM FORD beauty collection but wasn’t very compelled until I met <African Violet>.
<African Violet> consists of four opulent complementing shades for anyone to achieve multiple looks, from a bold, smokey eye, to a sexy slash of colour. The reason why I couldn’t shake this palette off my mind was because of the gorgeous orchid purple shade that stood out! I knew I had to get it after weeks of contemplating.
“Shine bright like a DIAMOND… We’re beautiful like DIAMONDS in the sky…”
Anyone remembers the song above? I think it’s a no-brainer. Anyway, they say that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, but I think that DIAMOND-INSPIRED MAKEUP is even better! Inspired by Creative Director, Jerrod Blandino’s love of diamonds, Too Faced launches its Pretty Rich Collection (finally in Singapore)!
Pretty Rich celebrates Jerrod’s appreciation for the luxurious colour, shine, and glimmer of multi-coloured gemstones. This collection was designed to incorporate a variety of textures, shades and finishes – just like precious stones. Is this a hit or a miss? I think it’s a sparkling YES!
“Sensitive” is what most ladies will describe their skin, but is it really sensitive? Sometimes, it’s not that our skin is sensitive, but the products we use or the excessive exposure to skin-damaging environmental factors that exacerbate our skin conditions. Dry climates can also cause our skin to react too. In any case, if you’re fretting over how to calm your (sensitive) skin, the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ skincare range is your answer!
Not too long ago, Origins released a gel-to-water moisturiser to complement the range – the Hydra Burst Gel Lotion. It was love at first touch! I’ve been using this as the last step of my skincare regime and I LOVE IT!
