Regain your skin’s natural beauty with Mamonde Skincare: Review

Flower-based skincare, who’s in? I’m definitely in! With the launch of floral-based Korean beauty brand, Mamonde, we’re once again spoilt for choice when it comes to Korean skincare. As you might have figured out by now, Mamonde, prides itself to nurture and enhance your natural beauty through the invigorating properties of flowers. The brand even has a real flower garden in Osan, located at the south of Seoul, where the key blooms like hibiscus, camellia, magnolia, honeysuckle and lotus are carefully-cultivated under expert botanists.

I’ve always been a believer of having flowers in skincare products, especially rose, because these beautiful works of nature actually provide nourishment and healing to our skin. In this post, I will share with you some of the skincare products I’ve been trying from Mamonde and hopefully you’ll find them useful for your skin too!

Glitter showdown with Too Faced Glitter Bomb Prismatic Glitter Eye Shadow Palette & Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette: Review & Comparison, Swatches & Makeup Looks

It’s always fun with a little glitter sparkle in our lives, no? Since the festive season is coming, I’m going to be talking about two eyeshadow palettes that will help you achieve a festive, glittery and sparkly eye makeup look!

I’ve been immersed in glitter with the Too Faced Glitter Bomb Prismatic Glitter Eye Shadow Palette & Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette. When I first received the Glitter Bomb palette, I thought that the shades are quite in the same family as those in the Moondust, so I bought the Moondust to do a comparison post.

Both makeup brands are my absolute all-time favourites. They produce some of the best eye primers, foundations and lipsticks in my opinion. I wanted to do a glitter showdown between the two so… Read on for a mini review on each, comparisons, swatches and similar makeup looks using both palettes.

A girl cannot have no glitter in her makeup wardrobe.

My Holy Grail glow-getter, the Allies of Skin Glow Gifter – 30 Second Facial Series: Review

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.

Monsieur Beauregard, the only “boy toy” you need in your life – Penhaligon’s Portraits Chapter III: Review

“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.”

Introducing the Penhaligon’s Portraits Family, Chapter III of the very British affair.

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…
