“Shine bright like a DIAMOND… We’re beautiful like DIAMONDS in the sky…”
Anyone remembers the song above? I think it’s a no-brainer. Anyway, they say that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, but I think that DIAMOND-INSPIRED MAKEUP is even better! Inspired by Creative Director, Jerrod Blandino’s love of diamonds, Too Faced launches its Pretty Rich Collection (finally in Singapore)!
Pretty Rich celebrates Jerrod’s appreciation for the luxurious colour, shine, and glimmer of multi-coloured gemstones. This collection was designed to incorporate a variety of textures, shades and finishes – just like precious stones. Is this a hit or a miss? I think it’s a sparkling YES!
Matte lipsticks are sprouting everywhere from the beauty brands in the market. I say that it’s a lip trend that will stay for a while more before someone decides to bring back the gloss and shine. It’s easy to find a matte lipstick in the market but often challenging finding one that doesn’t dry out the lips.
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.
Matte lipsticks are not going out of trend any time soon as we see beauty brands coming up with interesting formulas and textures. If you’re a beauty junkie looking for a bit of fun in your lipstick game, try metallic mattes.
Whether you’re a makeup junkie, the Too Faced melted Matte-tallic, with its good range of shades are sure to allow you to take your makeup look from day to night. Drench your lips in a rich, brushed metal finish with this velvety matte formula for a luxurious plush wear. It’s lightweight, comfortable to wear and long-lasting too, which makes for an ideal lipstick if you hate to do touch-ups (like me).
A beauty junkie can never leave out base makeup especially when he/she is heading out of the house, even to run errands. For me, I have oily combination skin, very acne-prone as well, which makes it hard for me to find a foundation that suits me. Most of the foundations I tried in the market do not last on my skin but thankfully after years of experimenting, testing and trying, I managed to shortlist my top 5 favourites!
Price is never an issue for me because it’s all about finding the best foundation for my skin type. Interestingly, my five choices here range from the luxurious to the pocket-friendly ones.
