When it comes to beauty, the Koreans always strike first. If you think applying blush is easy, think again. The Koreans have now reinvented the steps to achieving the perfect flush with the Blush Layering trend – basically working on a combination of sheer colours to achieve natural blush, contouring and highlighting effects.
And yes, if you’ve been following social media, you’ll definitely not be a stranger to the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection that’s all over your feed. The collection, with natural and luminous hues, is designed perfectly for the Blush Layering trend, with two colours in each of the six unique palettes.
I quite like the shade selection in each palette, because each palette is carefully designed for you to achieve a certain look, whether it be a pure and innocent one, a sun-kissed glowy one or even a well-contoured one. The combination of two ideal colours into one palette, coupled with the blendability of the formula, lets you conveniently create a complexion you desire in the shortest amount of time.
So, after the cutesy collaboration with The Simpsons and DreamWorks Trolls, THEFACESHOP nails it again with a collaboration with Marvel! Isn’t it marvellous? Teehee! Fight those sleepy and dull looking eyes with a splash of smashing colours!
Seriously, this has got to be the fastest I’ve churned out a review. I literally bought these two palettes last week and here I am with a lowdown of these THEFACESHOP x Marvel Mono Pop Eyes palettes. I’ve personally really enjoyed these palettes and am quite stoked to be able to land my hands on them. I heard that the Strong Red palette has ran out of stock just days after the launch, and phew, am I glad it’s sitting on my vanity now staring at me while I pen down my thoughts.
Lately it’s been looking all rosy on my skincare shelf in my boyfriend’s room. As I’m always staying over at his place on weekends, I have been leaving bits and pieces of me (my clothes, skincare, makeup) at his place and the one set of skincare I rely on during the weekends is the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line.
LANEIGE has always been one of my trusted Asian brands when it comes to skincare and makeup, from the Water Sleeping Mask to the BB Cushion Pore Control and recently, the new line of foundation and bases. I was so stoked when they decided to drop a whole line of skincare dedicated to restoring your skin’s natural balance with four very simple steps.
Formulated with natural litchi extract and deep-sea water, the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line seeks to empower your skin with the fundamentals – to soothe and moisturise. Let’s go back to the basics with uncomplicated steps to regain a healthy, rosy complexion. It’s time to unleash the sparkling beauty in you!

Being invited to a wedding can be pretty exciting because it’s an excuse to shop for new clothes! However, for some, it can be quite a hassle, especially if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a wedding-appropriate outfit.
For me, I shop online most of the time because I prefer browsing on the web than physically heading down for retail therapy when it comes to clothes. There are so many online fashion sites out there, which to choose? Well, you can start your shopping spree with a range of Korea, Japan and Taiwan-styled outfits with sizes ranging from XS to 4L at Pepperkoko!
Courtesy of Pepperkoko, I got the chance to pick out two outfits to wear for a wedding invitation, be it for a lunch or a dinner reception!

You know you’re not over K-beauty when you get excited at new launches from top Korean beauty brands.I’m squealing with joy with these ETUDE HOUSE Lip Rich Vivid Tints because I’m all about lip tints on days when I want to look put together without too much makeup.
Caress your lips with the perfect combination of hydration and vivid colour pigments with the rich, creamy and luxurious texture! The formula glides and melts onto your lips, leaving behind a trail of smoothness and intense colour that lasts. I am also in love the silver packaging for it looks so sleek and adds a trendy touch to your makeup bag.
