The festive season is upon us and with all the holiday sales going on, I’m sure everyone is preparing Christmas presents for their loved ones! I personally haven’t started shopping but I will, soon! What about you?
I’ve put together a short gift guide for beauty lovers out there c/o iHerb. iHerb is a global leader in bringing the best overall value in natural products to the world, so you’ll be sure to get the best of from your retail therapy here! If you’re not sure what to get for your beauty junkie friends, perhaps you’d want to read on for some practical and inexpensive gift ideas.
Illamasqua has been one of the less-talked-about makeup brands, especially since it has withdrawn from the Singapore market. It’s a pity because this brand stocks one of the most pigmented lipsticks and eyeshadows! Well, all hope is not lost because Illamasqua is stocked at Look Fantastic Singapore, an online beauty boutique that brings you closer to discovering more quality beauty brands.
Before we indulge in all the holiday goodness, let’s zoom in into one of the most exciting makeup launch from Illamasqua – TheReign of Rock Collection. In collaboration with Wonderland magazine, Amelia Windsor, a British model, takes centre stage as the face of the campaign.
The collection celebrates a 10-year reign of convention-defying beauty and the advocation of self-expression through its innovative textures in the line-up with rock and roll inspired artistry led by Director of Artistry, Pablo Rodriguez.
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.
After all the hype on the Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss, Urban Decay is set to transform our lip game by taking it one note down with the all new Lo-Fi Lip Mousse. I’ve been wearing them every single day and I can’t tell you how much I’m OBSESSED with the formula!
Think weightless, buildable and SUPER-PIGMENTED. I think that’s enough to shove all your current favourite lipsticks aside (for now).
We are already smitten by all the matte lipsticks we can have in the different textures possible – liquid and the regular solid bullets – but let’s welcome the new kid on the block! Housed in a little round shimmering purple compact, the Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse is a total game changer with its airy mousse texture.
That’s right, why be an ordinary horse when you can colour up your life and be a fun-loving unicorn? I’m totally feeling Coachella vibes in this whimsical collection by Too Faced. Indeed, as what the name of the collection says, “Life’s A Festival”, so go on, be happy and celebrate! But first, MAKEUP!
The Too Faced Life’s A Festival Collection is a celebration of good vibes, good music and amazing makeup. Too Faced Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Jerrod Blandino wants you to live your best life, celebrate yourself, and be free with this beautiful collection of iridescent formulas and rainbow pigments! Artist and songwriter, RaeLynn, fronts the collection with her song, “Festival”. Talk about good music!
