Clarisonic: Deep Pore Decongesting Solution Review & Thoughts

You know those days when you pile up heavy makeup and you just want the best results in removing them from your face at the end of the day? I personally experience a difficulty in cleansing my face totally from my makeup. Usually, I would go through my heavy makeup with my trusty shu uemura POREfinist Anti-Shine Fresh Cleansing Oil as it does such an awesome job in melting all my makeup, including waterproof mascara and eyeliner! However, I always feel that it’s not enough because I still regularly get a few pimples popping out here and there.

I was lucky enough to get to try the Clarisonic for the first time (courtesy of my colleague from Clarisonic SG), and so this is going to be a review on the Clarisonic Mia 2, a comparison of the sensitive and deep pore brush heads as well as my thoughts on the skincare products from the NEW Deep Pore Decongesting Solution range. For a Clarisonic user for the first time, I was impressed.

So, what is it?

Makeup of the Day: Green on Asian Eyes

Today’s makeup of the day is how to wear green on Asian eyes, and also a review on shu uemura’s pressed eyeshadows. Pardon for the recent rave on shu because I have received quite a lot of palettes (some obsolete, some catalogue products) during the recent office move! (Thank youuuuuuu shu!) 😀
Let’s get into the makeup look without further ado! Presenting the pressed eyeshadows from L-R:
P520 light green – pearlescent pale green
ME580 – satin forest green
ME471 – satin olive taupe

shu uemura: Tint in Gelato Lip & Cheek Tint Review and Swatches

A review up as promised! This is something different from my usual reviews, because I am currently interning in the brand now. It’s going to my honest opinion about the product, as well as lip swatches I did as part of a digital launch project for the brand.
Being a makeup lover, it’s always fun and exciting when makeup brands come up with colourful launches, especially in the eyes and lips categories for me as I really adore eyeshadows, drawing pencils and lip products! This summer, shu uemura (in small letters, pronounced as shoo-oo-eh-moo-ra) came up with a lip and cheek tint, called Tint in Gelato, just in time to hop onto the bandwagon of where the beauty market is going.

The Tint in Gelato (TIG) comes in a velvety soft semi-matte texture and there are 12 delicious shades as follows:

(Note that in Singapore, shades are by code numbers only)

Revival of her-dreamcatcher X #OOTD

Hello lovelies (if there is anyone still here to read my abandoned blog)!

It has really been long since I could write reviews of the piling makeup in my storage area, especially when workload’s been increasing. I miss photographing the pretty (and endless) makeup yet at the same time, whenever I have free time, I’d spend time hanging out with my darling love ones instead or resting. Feels good to be writing again, expressing my thoughts in this humble diary of mine, storing snippets of my life for me to look back upon, and of course, to also share beauty tips and tricks/reviews to those who are into makeup like me! Promise the next review will be up soon!

The reason why I had been so inactive for months was because of the great opportunities in the internship I am having now. I had the chance to plan for a PR event on my own which invited famous local bloggers, media and the trade people behind the renowned shopping malls you see on the streets of Orchard road. Even though I had no prior experience in planning for such an event (does Hall Dinner and Dance count?) that involves influential people, I was excited and felt accomplished to have made the event a success with the help of my friendly shu team! 🙂 Without the support of my bosses, I wouldn’t have been able to execute it fully, so thank you shu team!

2 more months to end my internship and I can’t wait to take a break from the hectic work lifestyle. It’s definitely an industry that I want to continue working in (not just because of all the freebies :P) because of my passion for all-things-beauty, however, I feel that it’s almost impossible to strike a work-life balance judging from how hard my colleagues are working. Oh well, gotta go back to school for another semester before I decide on my career path..

Anyway, here’s an #ootd (outfit of the day) to end this post, enjoy!

Decked in my magenta midi skirt and holographic shoes from I looooooove the midi skirt for its thick material and $25 is really worth it for the quality! However, if you are interested in the shoes, I suggest you think twice because I wouldn’t pay $39 for a pair of shoes that I predict wouldn’t last for 2-3 months if I were to wear it all day long. Nevertheless, I still love this outfit 🙂
Here’s a close up!
