 Lashperm Curlfix Mascara | S$24.90
The brand new Lashperm Curlfix Mascara has just become one of my favourite Mascara. With density lighter than water, this mascara does not weight your lash down. The fact that it is water, sweat and sebum resistant is worth the hype! I’m attracted to it small precise bristle as it allows me to apply with precision and not worry about accidental contact with my skin. With it’s 24HR technology, it promise to stay curl and up all day!
The real hype about this mascara is its the World’s first dual jelly brush. With special jelly material to design this bristle for the Asian eyes. The key to this dual jelly brush are its clean finish, through application with no mess.
The ultra fine 0.2mm bristles ensure each lash receive a perfect coating, the special arch that you can see within the brush will pick up the right amount of formula for each stroke. As stated it’s a short brush compare to most in the market measure only at 18mm in length so you can be smudge or mess free. It comes in 4 shades:
  • Black 
  • Brown (limited edition) 
  • Plum Burgundy (limited edition) 
  • Pink (limited edition)

Black will be available at all ETUDE HOUSE store. Brown, Plum Burgundy & Pink is available at Wisma Atria store.

After apply makeup base on my face, I move on to my eyes.
 Here I’m applying the eyeshadow #1 Honey Glam as the base colour and blend it out quickly with my finger.
Next I apply #5 Bling Bold on the outer corner of my eyes to add a little depth.
I then finish the eye look with Lashperm Curlfix Mascara in brown.
Lastly, the entire makeup look is done with the touch of  Liquid Lip in PK010.

ETUDE HOUSE Bling Me Prism Collection will be available from September 2015 exclusively at the Flagship store located at Wisma Atria #B1-20/21/22 and Vivo City #B1-03

Shu Uemura | Light Sculptor

Advertorial
Hey lovely, 
Shu Uemura new collection is all about the “contour-makeup” concept of slimming down the face without surgery which is very popular in Asia hence leading expert in Asian beauty SHUATELIER develop Light Sculptor that enables easy sculpting and instant contouring through a fusion of light using 3 main products.
These 3 main products have a specific application method to enhance the beauty of the bone structure, giving a natural dimensional effect without looking artificial. This means your makeup will look less like you have been piling on a ton of bronzer.
Stage Performer Glow Creator | 30ml S$62
Prime & Finish 
24 Hours Moisturizing – Dazzling Glow (limited Shade)
This deep moisturizing base and top coat will give you an instantly boosted inner glow look. Comes in 3 shades Dazzling Glow (limited Shade), Pure Gold and Warm Gold. 
When translucent glow meets moisturized glow, it immediately smooth skin and gives a natural glow. Talk about having dewy looking skin! 
Ingredients like Royal Jelly Extract will give your skin a nourish feel, Sodium Hyaluronate support water retention while adenosine has anti-aging effect. Not to forget it has anti-oxidation element.
Lightbulb Fluid Foundation and Sponge – 564 Medium Light Sand | 27ml S$72
This lightbulb foundation comes with a sponge where you can learn the technique of using this duo HERE. Loving the high coverage which allows me to apply less concealer around my dark eyes circle, at the same time it has a very dewy/glowing finish that’s moisturising too. Comes in 10 different shades so do head down to Shu Uemura counter to find your perfect shade.
Lightbulb Glowing Face Powder + Puff | 15g S$60
Since this is in the shade colourless, it adds a soft and warm-lit glow to your skin. The secret lies in the formula where it is an oil-coated powder which create a translucent glow minus off the powdery feeling. The puff on the other hand works to pick-up thin and even layer before applying on face. The mesh helps to give fine powder with each pick-up which you can see below.
Multi-Concealer Palette – 7YR light & 7YR dark
The light concealer I use it on my under eyes as for the dark one, I use it as a contouring shade applying on the side of my face as well as the chin area. Since it is cream in texture it blends very well with the lightbulb foundation.
Now that I’ve shown you the products, it’s time to show you the application process. Do note that Step 3 I didn’t follow the exact method. 
Step 1 | Prime
You can see the slight glow where the sunlight hits.
Step 2 | Create
Using the lighbulb fluid foundation, my skin looks extra dewy and moisturised. Even my dark circle are mostly covered up.
Added step | Conceal and Contour
Skin I receive the concealer I wanted to put it to good use before moving on to Step 3, so here is me using the light shade to conceal my under eyes area and the darker shade to contour as mention before. after blending it out it looks very natural and not harsh. This allow me to skip the bronzing powder.
Step 3 | Control
As mention on top I didn’t follow exactly by applying the powder on the T-zone as show in the techniques as well as the glow creator on the selected area. I would definitely do it the next time round. Overall I enjoy how it turns out, the lightbulb glowing face powder is really light hence even after applying all over my face, it does not feel cakey at all! 
After finishing off the makeup here’s how you can look photo ready below, or in this case selfie ready at all time!!! *smile*

Clinique

Clinique Smart custom-repair eye treatment S$79 15ml
This is an anti-aging eye treatment that targets to brightens, lift, smoothes creepiness and diminishes fine lines to crow’s feet while keeping the skin hydrated at the same time. It consist of potent ingredients that help to keep skin calm, comfortable and receptive to ingredient benefits.
Some of the ingredients that are found to have different benefits are as the following:
Ease inflammation
– Cladosiphon Okamuranus Extract, a gentle seaweed is potent anti-irritant agent useful for soothing skin around delicate eye area
– Algae Extract that does the same and in addition, receptive to repair.
Repair damage
– Hydrolyzed Rice Protein and VitisVinifera (Grape) Seef Extract helps to support skin’s natural repair process 
– Sodium RNA in addition can help to eradicate the appearance of damage caused by stress, UV, and other harmful assaults.
Plump up
– Acetyl Hexapeptide-* and Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12 help stimulate natural collagen production, which plumps skin, helping to diminish lines and wrinkles.
– Whey Protein is natural, high-quality polypeptide and rich in amino acids will minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles while helping skin look and feel firmer/more resilient.
Brilliant radiance
– Plum Extract is brighten dull and fatigued looking skin so eyes appear more awake and youthful. 
– Morus Nigra Root Extract restore radiance and luminosity for more even-toned appearance.
– Ascorbyl Glucoside help counter dullness in the under-eye area.
– Glucosamine Ferment promote cell renewal at the uppermost layers of the skin to gently diminish the appearance of surface dullness. 
Perfectly hydrate
– Hyaluronic Acid attracts and binds moisture to thirsty skin.
– Cucumber Extract, Sunflower Extract and Barley Extract is a complex of super-moisturizing fatty acid based-ingredients to help keep your skin hydrated.
Overall lots of goodness in a bottle. Texture wise its a lightweight and oil free gel cream but it has a bit of shimmer in it so if you are not a fan of shimmer then I would consider using it in the day time instead. 
Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara S$30
Next up is Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara (in Jumbo Jet) that creates bold, volumized and luscious lashes with just a few strokes of this over-size brush. This mascara is ophthalmologist tested and is safe for sensitive eyes and contact wearers. Allergy tested and 100% fragrance free.
The mascara is not oily proof though so if you have oily lids like me, you might look a little like panda on the under eye after a full long day.
 Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen S$34

This error-proof pen creates clean line in one simple steady sweep. This liner able you to create precise lines with its continuous deep colour. It promise 12-hours smudge resistant and transfer proof wear. Allergy tested and 100% fragrance free. 
When I draw it on my hand and test it out, it really is smudge resistant and water proof, but I’m not sure why it’s not after applying it on my eye. I suspect that it may be due to the makeup base. When drawn on hand, it’s a clean surface with no oil or whatsoever, when it comes to face, we usually will have base and powder set on the skin hence maybe that’s why it didn’t seem smudge proof as it still smudge on the outer corner where the eyeliner sit.

The Clinique Smart custom-repair eye treatment is now available in store, as for the Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara and Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen, they will be available from 17 August 2015 onwards!

On the side note, I will be receiving the 3 Steps Skincare treatment for their Clinique #FaceForward which by now some of you may know so stay tune for the review that I’m looking forward to share!

Hugs, 
Cassandra

Klarra Pre-Fall 2015 RTW Collection

Recently was at Beatrica’s Klarra event for the Pre-Fall 2015 RTW Collection. This collection plays with interesting cutting as well as details, from pleated to flower. Beatrica was really lovely to chat with and down to earth. 
This skirt was obviously my favourite piece. The front and back is different in length which helps to elongate the body by showing some skin. This piece is so pretty that I would even wear it to a wedding. Overall I love that the fabric is of quality and not too thin especially for white clothing piece. 
Now you can head down to Robinsons The Hereen to view their collection as their pop up store is currently there. You can try on and get the feel of their fabric to see the quality and fitting for yourselves. Thanks Beatrica and Venelyn for the invites; and Congrates on the collection! Looking forward to more!

LANEIGE’s partnership with PLAYNOMORE, a brand designed by Chae-yeon Kim whose signature SHYGIRL square tote bag has garnered a large following of K-pop celebrities and models in South Korea since its recent launch in 2014. Incidentally, the brand philosophy of PLAYNOMORE reflects the 2015 brand slogan of LANEIGE, “Unleash the sparkling beauty in you”, highlighting the stunning compatibility between the leader of K-Beauty and the mega-trendy fashion label. This marks the beauty brand’s second collaboration of LANEIGE Meets Fashion. 
This Project features “SHYGIRL” of PLAYNOMORE wearing LANEIGE cosmetics. Named “My Darling, SHYGIRL”, SHYGIRL with her curious but shy eyes transforms into an even lovelier and more attractive character that displays the cheerful sensibility of both brands.
This collection consists of four specially designed LANEIGE products.
At the event located at Brew Maison we got to have fun at the photo booth and customising your own bag charms which is then attached to the “bag” that came with the products!
