“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!
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?
I’ve put together a short gift guide for beauty lovers out there c/o iHerb. iHerb is a global leader in bringing the best overall value in natural products to the world, so you’ll be sure to get the best of from your retail therapy here! 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Illamasqua has been one of the less-talked-about makeup brands, especially since it has withdrawn from the Singapore market.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.
