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.
Bold is the new black. Ditch the boring, flat beiges and browns. Stand out and make a fashion statement with a daring eye look, using the completely new Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes.
Eyeshadows have always been my thing – I love to make the craziest of colours work for me. The possibilities are endless! With the new generation of eyeshadow palettes, you can express yourself with dimensional neutrals, brilliant pops of colour with four fashion finishes. “With any way you style your eyes, you’re sure to make your marc (mark)”.
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.
