Hope your weekend has been bright and happy so far! Just like these @thefaceshop_sg #flatlipstick shades! These #lipsticks are really quite interesting - they're flat, with an oval shape, which is supposed to help get a better-defined line on the lips! There are two finishes, a #flatvelvetlipstick and a #flatglossylipstick - with a matte and glossy finish respectively. In 12 shades so there's something for everyone! ___________ #clozette #beauty #makeup #thefaceshopsg #lipstick #kbeauty #kmakeup #koreanmakeup #koreanbeauty #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #abblogger #rasianbeauty #asianmakeup #thefaceshop #beautyblogger #makeuplife #makeupaddict #makeupmess #cosme
[#IngredientsLowdown] Yaaaasssss @pixibeauty this #glowtonic #toner has gotta be my absolute favourite #skincare item from the brand! With 5% glycolic acid (2nd ingredient on the ingredients list!! So you know they mean business!), this already sets it apart from so many other similarly-priced toners out there. But that's not all! I also like that some nice humectants are included (glycerin and butylene glycol are the main ones, but there are also a few sugars with humectant properties) as well as a variety of plant extracts, with aloe vera leaf juice being the main one (others include horse chestnut and witch hazel). Definitely gonna do a full out review for this on my blog at some point! In the meantime Imma be slathering all 500ml of this on my fat face, hahaha. ____________ #PixiBeauty #pixibypetra #pixiglow #toners #clozette #beauty #beautyblogger #skincarereview #skincarecommunity #skincareaddict #skincareaddiction #pixiskintreats #skincareblogger #beautyblog #budgetbeauty #glycolicacid #skincarereview #skincareroutine
[#IngredientsLowdown] #BounceBackToYouth with @thebodyshopsg #dropsofyouth #skincare range - now with two new products added to the range, the Bouncy Eye Mask and Youth Gentle Foaming Wash! Check out the ingredients! 🍃Bouncy #eyemask: This is formulated to be emollient but lightweight, with emollients like soybean oil (2nd ingredient), dimethicone and capric/caprylic triglycerides. All good ingredients for an eye product. My one reservation is that there is some alcohol (6th ingredient) in the product but depending on your skin type it may or may not be a concern. 🍃Youth Gentle Foaming Wash: This #cleanser is really nicely formulated - it's clearly formulated to be gentle, with some fairly mild surfactants(Coco-Glucoside, disodium cocoyl glutamate, polyglyceryl 4 caprate, among others), and also some humectants (Glycerin). This one is definitely worth checking out for sure! ____________ #clozette #beauty #thebodyshop #thebodyshopsg #tbssg #nofilter #skincarereview #skincareblogger #skincarecommunity #skincareaddiction #skincareaddict #beautyblogger #beautyblog #beautyjunkie #naturalskincare #naturalproducts
[#IngredientsLowdown] Doing any travel? The @garniersg #micellarwater is now available in travel size, specifically the newest #micellarcleansingwater to the #Garnier family, the Oil-Infused Cleansing Water! Let's quickly run through the ingredients for all 3: 1️⃣Oil-Infused Cleansing Water (Gold 🔶): For those who love a more emollient and less drying #micellar cleanser, this one has Argan Oil as the 4th ingredient! There are also other emollient ingredients (Isohexadecane) to help the micellar water have a nice smooth feel on skin. This is definitely something new for #GarnierSG - the formula is totally different from the other two products, and definitely worth a try. 2️⃣PureActive Micellar Cleansing Water (Blue🔵): This has a fairly short and simple ingredients list, consisting of water, some humectants (glycerin, hexylene glycol), and gentle surfactants for cleansing (disodium cocoamphodiacetate, poloxamer 184). So far, so good. It does contain alcohol though (4th ingredient) so this really isn't for dry/sensitive skins, more of really thick oily skins. An alcohol-free version is available in the pink bottle, however! 3️⃣Sensitive Skin Micellar Cleansing Water (Pink🔴): This has basically an identical formula to the Blue Pureactive version, except minus the alcohol. So if the alcohol in the previous version concerned you, this is the one to go for! I personally prefer this to the blue one too. ____________ #clozette #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarereview #beautyblogger #beautygram #drugstoreskincare #drugstorebeauty #budgetskincare #budgetbeauty #cleansingwater #cleanser #makeupremover #skincarecommunity #skincareaddiction #skincareaddict #skincarescience #skincareproducts #skincaresingapore #flatlay
Ooooohhhh @lorealmakeup has done it again! I have no idea how #loreal manages to release great collection after collection, but here we are! Three #lorealinfallible #makeup products are now here! We have the #infalliblepromatte #foundation, which #lorealparis claims will last for 24 hours(!), the Infallible Pro Matte #gloss #liquidlipstick, which is the brand's first liquid lipstick that claims to offer high pigmentation in a non-drying formula. And last but not least the Metallic by Color Riche #lipstick - in 3 shades of gold, silver and rose champagne. These are basically semi-sheer #lipsticks that can be used as a topper over other lipcolours for added dimension or by itself for a metallic finish. Of course with the highlighting trend being as strong as it is now, you can totally use it as a stick highlighter too! _______________ #clozette #beauty #makeupflatlay #makeuptalk #lorealparissg #becauseweareallworthit #slaytheflatlay #drugstoremakeup #budgetbeauty #beautyblogger #beautygram #beautyblog #beautyjunkie #makeupporn #makeupaddiction #lorealmakeup
Hope your weekend is as bright and colourful as the shades in this @etudehousesingapore #playcoloreyes #eyeshadow #palette! Gotta love the cohesiveness of the beach theme, from everything to the bright colour selection to the shade names, and to the teal packaging! Quality of this is like most #etudehouse #eyeshadows, so pigmentation is generally pretty good and texture is decent (although a bit harder as with most budget-friendly Asian brands), although some of the foil-ey shades do require some prepping if fallout is a concern. ______________#clozette #beauty #makeup #etudesg #etudehousesg #kbeauty #kmakeup #abcommunity #rasianbeauty #asianmakeup #koreanmakeup #koreanbeauty #makeuplife #makeupporn #abblogger #koreastyle #beautyblogger #makeupflatlay #makeupaddict
Love it when mainstream stores stock popular #kbeauty #skincare and #makeup - the more choices the better! @guardiansg now carries @aprilskin_korea products, including the Perfect Magic Snow Cream, Mummy Mud #mask, and the super convenient Magic Snow Sun Stick - it's sunscreen in a stick with SPF50! The Magic Snow Pad is really cool too - it's basically an exfoliator that combines a gommage-type peel with a microfiber-type cloth for extra physical exfoliation, and definitely something you can't get elsewhere in most drugstore brands :) ____________ #clozette #kmakeup #kskincare #koreanmakeup #koreanskincare #abcommunity #rasianbeauty #rasianskincare #asianskincare #aprilskin #aprilskinsg #aprilskinkorea #aprilskin #guardiansg #guardian_singapore #skincarecommunity #beautyblogger #beautyblog
#Swatches of the @marcbeauty #lemarc #liquidlipcrayon! I was told these are are basically #liquidlipstick in #lipcrayon form, and are supposed to impose a nice matte finish without being overly drying. They do go on with a nice glide, and feel fairly nice on the lips - it's a matte finish that doesn't crack or flake. The pigmentation on this is also really good. Also I swatched shade 340 twice, oops! I think my personal favorites are shades 320 and 360, the latter of which was really popular among the ladies present! _________________ #marcjacobsbeauty #marcjacobswatch #marcbeautysg #sephora #sephorasg #clozette #beauty #makeup #makeupflatlay #highendmakeup #luxurybeauty #luxurymakeup #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #makeuptalk #makeupporn #makeupaddict #lipcolor
Pardon me wiping the drool from my mouth but these @heroinemakesg #makeup products are so pretty! This collection consists of glitter gel #eyeliner pencil (4 shades), mascara, and two realllly preeeettttyyyy #eyeshadow #palettes - I predict the neutral #palette will be really popular, but the #pink one is surprisingly wearable too, it has a couple of pink-based shades nestled within complementary neutrals, so don't overlook that! Swipe for more product photos! _________________ #clozette #beauty #makeupflatlay #makeupaddict #makeupaddiction #heroinemake #asianbeauty #asianmakeup #abcommunity #abmakeup #japanesemakeup #beautyblogger #beautyaddict #beautyjunkie
[INGREDIENTS LOWDOWN] Double the ingredients analyzing with the @niveasg #cleansers - there are two variants, the Super Mousse #Cleanser, and the Caring Whip one! They're also super affordable at under $10 each, but how do they stack up ingredients-wise? 1️⃣ Super Mousse Cleanser: this one comes in 2 types, a White Oil Clear for oily skin, and a Pearl White for dull skin. The formulas for both versions are quite similar, consisting of water, humectants (glycerin, sorbitol, glyceryl glucoside) and a gentle surfactant (decyl glycoside, disodium cocoyl glutamate). I really like this formula, and the licorice root extract is a nice touch too! I love both formulations equally. 2️⃣ Caring Whip Cleanser - again, 2 versions, White Oil Clear and Pearl White. The base formula for both is also very similar. Both have water, glycerin, and some surfactants (potassium myristate, potassium laurate, lauryl hydroxysultaine, sodium laureth sulfate), some which are milder and some are stronger. Basically, this is stronger cleaner than the mousse version, and probably best if you have oily skin and/or want to get all that oil and gunk off your skin. I do appreciate that the product has no alcohol (although then again, why would you put alcohol in a cleanser? If anyone has seen such a product, let me know!) __________________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #skincarereview #skincareflatlay #nivea #niveasg #niveaskincare #facewash #drugstorebeauty #drugstoreskincare #beautylover #beautyblogger #skincareroutine #skincareblogger #beautyreview #beautyreviews #skincareproducts #sgbeautybloggers #sgbeauty #sgbeautyblogger #budgetbeauty #budgetskincare #beautylover #beautyjunkie
Out with the old and in with the new! First blogpost of 2018 is a bunch of empties! And there are tons of them - I guess this gives me an excuse to keep buying my beauty products in 2018! :p __________________ #clozette #beauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareblogger #empty #empties #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie #skincarelover #skincareproducts #abcommunity #abbloggers #asianskincare #asianskincareproducts #rasianbeauty #rasianskincare #nofilter #iphoneonly #panporn #cleanser #micellarwater #micellarcleansingwater #oilcleansing #oilcleanser #sgbeautybloggers #sgbeautyblogger
New Year's Eve is the perfect time to bust out some red lipstick! Hope everyone's having a good NYE! Shown here are @thefaceshop_sg @3ce_official @narsissist @rougebunnyrouge and @illamasqua and also some some red @sleekmakeup #blush shades from back in the day! ______________________#Clozette #beauty #makeup #lipstick #lipsticks #flatlay #igbeauty #instabeauty #makeupjunkie #makeupmess #roses #flowers #blusher #bouquet #redlips #redlipstick #makeuplife #makeuplove #makeupporn #illamasqua #thefaceshop #3ce #narsissist #nars #sleekmakeup #rougebunnyrouge
[INGREDIENTS LOWDOWN] Christmas may have passed, but you can still get into the magic of the holiday spirit with these @esteticabeautysg Vitalift A + #sheetmasks! And not just because this is a nice #sheetmask, but also because proceeds from sales of this #masks will go to @makeawishsingapore too! From now until February, actually, so there's plenty of time to stock up if you're so inclined :) Ingredients-wise, this is actually pretty good: niacinamide is the 5th ingredient, so it's there in hopefully significant amounts! The other key ingredients are humectants (butylene glycol, propylene glycol, pentylene gycol), which is generally what you find in sheet masks, but there are also various ferment and algae-derived extracts (including the bifida ferment lysate which is famous for being in SK-II products), and allantoin, which are all ingredients that are a nice touch, and definitely add a little something more to the mask. Also I like the fact that there's no alcohol in this mask. A tad pricey at $98 for a box of 6, but if it's for charity, why not? _________________ #clozette #estetica #esteticabeautysg #esteticasg #flatlay #skincare #beautyblogger #beauty #bbloggers #rasianbeauty #rasianskincare #rasiancommunity #rasiancosmetics #abblogger #sgbeautybloggers #sgbeauty #hopeisinyourhands #mask #sheetmaskaddict #sheetmasking #sheetmaskaddiction #sheetmaskreview
Weekend pampering with these pretty @tomford #eyeshadows and #palettes! The standout of the brand for me has always been their limited edition palettes, they're practically like collectors items! ______________________ #clozette #tomfordbeauty #tomford #tomfordcosmetics #tomfordsg #makeupaddict #beauty #makeup #cosmetics #luxebeauty #luxurybeauty #nofilter #makeuptalk #makeupmess #makeupporn #beautygram #igbeauty #instabeauty #igmakeup #instamakeup #cosme #beautyjunkie #makeupjunkie #luxurybrand #eyeshadow #palette
[INGREDIENTS LOWDOWN] Prepping that skin for the new year like 💆🏻💆🏻with the @lorealskin #PureClayMask range! There are 3 #claymask types - one for detoxifying, one for pores, and one for radiance. Looking at the mask ingredients, the detoxifying mask is slightly different from the other two - it uses kaolin and montmonrillonite as the two main clay ingredients, and Moroccan lava clay is present in much smaller amounts, while the other two use kaolin, bentonite and Moroccan lava clay. So I do personally feel that the anti-pores and illuminating mask do kinda overlap formula-wise. My favorite out of the three is the detoxifying mask, just because it is the only one out of the three with no alcohol inside. They'll all work just fine as clay masks, and preferences will vary - I know some people like their clay masks to be more dry to absorb allll the oil, in which the formulas with alcohol won't bother them (or they may prefer these formulas), but if you don't like alcohol, the detoxifying one would be your best bet. ____________________ #lorealparissg #ClayYourWay #clozette #becauseweareallworthit #PureClayMasks #mask #masks #facemask #facemasks #flatlay #skincare #skincareroutine #LorealParis #budgetbeauty #drugstoreskincare #drugstorebeauty #beautylover #beautyjunkie #beautyjunkies #beautyaddict #skincareblogger #skincareproduct #beautyblog #beautyproduct
Hope everyone had a good Christmas! I am so excited with these new @pixibeauty #skincare and #makeup products! The #Skintreats line now has a Rose Flash Balm and a Rose Caviar Essence, and I am soooo sooo excited for the matte #liquidlipstick! The shade range is super wearable, and every single range is gorgeous! ________________ #clozette #beauty #PixiBeauty #PixiByPetra #PixiPerfect #mattelipstick #matteliquidlipstick #flatlay #serum #nofilter #beauty #budgetbeauty #beautyblogger #beautygram #makeupaddict #makeuptalk #makeupporn #makeupjunkie #beautyblog #beautyjunkie #iphoneography #bblogger #bloggers
It's Christmas Eve!! Also I am loving the fact that a few holiday makeup collections are deviating a little from the typical holiday red lips, starting with @bourjoissg! It's a good one to check out if your aesthetic is dark lips and glimmering eyes! The #eyeshadow #palettes are sooo nice (check out those lovely designs!), and the two new #rougeeditionvelvet shades include a vampy wine and midnight eggplant that really isn't for the faint of heart! The other products are much more everyday-wear-friendly, including the #eyeshadows, lip liner and #eyeliner! __________________ #clozette #bourjoissg #bourjois #bourjoisparis #beauty #makeup #igbeauty #igmakeup #bblogger #beautyblogger #makeupaddict #makeuptalk #makeupmess #drugstoremakeup #flatlay #makeuplove #nofilter #beautyblog #makeupoftheday
[MORE IN STORIES] I'm not last-minute Christmas shopping, YOU'RE last-minute shopping!! 😂😂Well if that's you (and haven't we all been there?), and you're shopping for someone who loves #skincare, then you can check out the @skii sets that are around for the holidays! Of course they'll be great for that #skii junkie (I don't know about you but I know two such people) who swears by the iconic #facialtreatmentessence, which is all prettied up with a #changedestiny slogan in a very cool limited edition design! The product inside of course is the same #essence we all know and love! (PS if you're looking for a review on the FTE, there's one on my blog from sometime back!) __________________ #clozette #beauty #skiisg #skiisingapore #flatlay #yourstatementyourbottle #skincareroutine #skincareblogger #skincarelover #rasianbeauty #rasianskincare #rasianbeautyproducts #abcommunity #asianskincare #japaneseskincare #nofilter #beautyblogger #beautyblog #beautyjunkie #luxebeauty #luxeskincare #highendbeauty
