When my skin’s happy, I am happy! One of the main reasons why I’m really bubbly and happy-go-lucky lately is because of my skin. I’ve been feeling really confident in my skin for the past 2-3 months or so because it has drastically improved. I kid you not; I have been struggling with acne issues since I was a teenager, about 14 years old or so, to the extent that I needed to be on Oratane. The large, inflamed, cystic acne may have stop visiting me but I still get occasional break outs every month.
When I thought all hope was lost, I found a combination of different skincare products that work for me. If you’ve been following paradeoflove.com, you’ll know that one of the culprits for my clear complexion is the Allies of Skin Glow Gifter Set which contains the Molecular Saviour Mist and the Bright Future Overnight Facial.
“Somewhere in the rolling hills of the English countryside, nestled under a majestic canopy of oaks, the sun is gently rising over a country mansion. Two or three domestic servants are arduously at work drawing baths, opening curtains, lighting fires and viciously beating carpets in preparation for the first family gathering of the day.”

With every personality distinctively unique from one another, I’ll like you to focus on “our French friend”, the seductively charming house guest of Countess Dorothea, Monsieur Beauregard.
The Story of Monsieur Beauregard
“Our French friend” is how this unknown but over-familiar character is typically introduced in the house of Lord George. His lingering gaze lets you know he’ll take things from here. Studiously ignored by the female members of the household – and not only because of the large gifts he receives from Lady Dorothea are a little too much — he is always where you least expect him, especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night…
For once, you can hold your complaints about Singapore always being one of the last few countries to launch any makeup product. Get ready to perfect your skin with an unbelievably gorgeous glow that lasts, pretty much the entire day, even in Singapore’s hot tropical climate.
Let’s take a while to register that the Urban Decay Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundation is finally launched in Singapore… YAS, WE ARE THE FIRST COUNTRY TO LAUNCH THIS, and even the United States haven’t gotten a launch date yet!
Just 2 weeks ago, the whole world stopped for Rihanna, as @badgalriri launched her very own makeup line dedicated for all skin colors, all undertones, from all countries. With foundation in 40 shades, skinsticks in 30 shades, Fenty Beauty was created and made for every girl in the world.
First things first, disclaimer! Note that this is not a post with sponsored products as I wasn’t provided with any and these two highlighters were solely purchased with my own pocket money. Let’s be honest here. I know that I have been reviewing a lot of products provided by PR companies and the brands themselves but I just want to put it out there that I share my most honest thoughts even if the campaign was paid or products sponsored!
*Back to Fenty Beauty* The two products that caught my attention immediately following the launch were the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife (seriously the world went crazy for this) and the Matchstix Shimmer Skinstick in Confetti. I bought them both with the help of a sweet friend who was at the press launch at Sephora ION.
