September 2014 Beauty Favourites: Review

Goodbye September, here comes a new month again! As always, at the end of every month, I love to summarise my beauty favourites for the month because it allows me to share the products that I have been loving for the entire month (well, almost).
Well, for me, September has been experimenting with lots of new products again, due to a swap box I did and many other purchases as well. Basically, I have been loving face finishing products and a variety of colours for different looks. I am also using a little cute red ethnic-looking bowl as a decoration to this spread.
Let’s hop right into my picks for September!

MAC x The Simpsons Collection: Review, Swatches & FOTD

“Lisa, if I’ve learned anything, it’s that life is just one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead.” – The Simpsons.
Honestly, I have never watched nor read anything from The Simpsons series, but I thought this packaging from MAC is really adorable, hence I had to lay my hands on them! 😀 Heard that the collection was selling out fast at all MAC stores in Singapore so I was really happy to be able to purchase these from the US web itself, all thanks to my dear IG friend Sylvia (@syloft)! Without further ado, let’s look into the items I got!
Just look at the lovely packaging! The palette actually feels heavy, and I mistook it for being metal! Also, I like that the design is printed on, not like a cheap sticker, such quality! I think this may be one of the few collections that I do keep the packaging boxes intact too! 😀

Glow in the Dark iPhone Casings: Review (Makeup Picks for the day too!)

Aloha! It’s finally my recess week so it’s a week of relaxing for me, I initially thought. However, good news came my way and I got shortlisted for the Unilever Future Leaders’ League 2014, my second year participating in this case challenge. I hope that I am able to clinch the champs because this year, the champion team is heading to London in March 2015 for the global finals! I absolutely can’t wait! 🙂
In the mean time, here are 2 iPhone casings that the team from Glow.inthedark_casings (Instagram: @glow.inthedark_casings) sent over to me, just in time when I needed a change of my iPhone cover because it has lots and lots of scratches already. Hehe just look at the Eiffel Tower designs! Aren’t they pretty? I have always loved the Eiffel Tower and all-things-Paris when I was a little girl so these just made my day!

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner (Toner): Review

It’s time for a review on the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner (why can’t it be spelt the right way – freshener =.=) after using it twice a day, every day for about 2 weeks or so. I usually test the product out for about 2 weeks (for skincare) before deciding if it works on my skin.

The Wonder Pore Freshner is labelled as an “Ultra Pore Solution, 10-in-1” that boasts of a plethora of skincare benefits:
  • Removes leftover makeup – CHECKED!
  • Lightly acidifies skin to optimal pH 5.5 level
  • Controls sebum – CHECKED!
  • Minimises pores – SOMEWHAT CHECKED!
  • Treats uneven skintone
  • Maintains skin elasticity
  • Hydrates skin
  • Smoothens skin textire
  • Get rids of impurities and dead skin cells – CHECKED!
  • Refreshes and cool the skin – SOMEWHAT CHECKED!
Basically, comparing to the previous formulation, the Wonder Pore Freshner 7-in-1 (see my short comment on it from my old makeup routine), this formula provides more skincare benefits and in my opinion worked a lot better for my skin. Here are the 2 products I received from Etude House Singapore.

September 2014 Bellabox: Review

Half the month of September have passed already and oh gosh I have to say that my school work is piling like crazy! I really can’t wait for recess week for a well-deserved break. Juggling between school work and working part-time as a beauty stylist isn’t the best because I totally feel the fatigue kicking in already!

Thank goodness for a lovely surprise box from Bellabox that came my way to lighten my mood and take away a little bit of the fatigue! Cheers to beauty surprises! 🙂

This September, Bellabox is going vogue. The theme of this blue beauty box is Urban Vibes – expect up and coming brands as well as products that will help your skin curb the horrors of the monsoon season! There is also a GORGEOUS product in there which is MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE in the box (see it already? *winks*)!

A Bellabox mess from my unravel of the blue box! There are just too many things that I don’t know where to start from!
