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.
HAVE YOU HEARD?! Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) is finally stocked on Sephora Singapore! The highly anticipated brand, launched by Anastasia Soare, an icon in the beauty industry known for creating nearly perfect brows using the golden ratio method, is finally here! It was truly an honour to meet the maestro herself, the #QueenofBrows, during the launch party at 1880 last week, and I even got my palette signed by her!
ABH was founded in 1997 and was expanded to feature beyond brow makeup such as lip, contour and eye products. My favourite from the brand? The eyeshadow palettes of course! I am a fan of the eye palettes and I bought the Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette, the Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette and also, my favourite, the Norvina Eyeshadow Palette, which is also the one I’ll be reviewing here.
Concealers are my best friend; I can’t live without one because I’m always in need of some coverage for my pigmentation-filled skin. All those acne scars got me super-reliant on concealers, especially high coverage ones.
Thanks to the team from Too Faced, I got to try one of the best concealers (maybe I should do a top 5 concealers post?) thus far – Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer.
This concealer is no ordinary product – as its name suggests, it’s a multi-use product that helps you to conceal, contour, highlight and retouch, at any time of the day. With 20 shades catered to the fairest to the deepest of skin tones, it’s no wonder this is perfect to contour and highlight as well.
Masking is something I can never live without in my everyday life. You may think it’s crazy, but yes, I mask every day. Due to my dry combination skin, I have to mask as often as I can. This is so that I can pack my skin with ample hydration and allow it to repair itself quickly.
Masking can be relaxing but for working adults like us, time is forever an issue. I often find masking a chore because of how much time I need to sacrifice at night just to do it. A usual sheet/clay mask will take you at least 20 minutes and who in the world has got time for that?!
Just as you’re fighting the thought to either sleep or mask, FOREO has its latest invention, the UFO Face Mask Device, to solve your dilemma! You only need 90 seconds to mask… say whaaat?!
