I am always on the lookout for new and upcoming cosmetic brands and so when I first found out about these interesting lip products from Indonesian local brand, Rollover Reaction, I knew I had to try it!
Founded in 2016, new and upcoming Indonesian cosmetics brand Rollover Reaction creates desirable beauty products for today’s modern day women who are constantly on-the-go and want easy, fuss free products make up that is perfect for daily wear!
The brand is all about creating effortless beauty personalised for various women which is why they created their first product; SUEDED – A liquid creamy formulation wearable as a lipstick, blusher, and even eyeshadow.
There’s 8 adorable shades available and I am going to show you how it looks on my lips.
Each of their products comes with an extensive range of colors, from subtle-stain to high-impact pigments. Packed in stylish packaging for those who wants to maximized appearance with minimum effort.
When applied, the lip colour goes on pigmented, glides on smoothly with a soft velvety texture to it. Color comes out easily and is very vibrant on the lips. Due to its smooth texture, it goes on nicely on the cheeks and eyelids as well. For the eyelids and cheeks, I usually just dab a little on the areas and glide my fingers over the areas. You can also opt for a blending brush or sponge for your eyes or cheeks if you do not wish to dirty your fingers.
There is a faint toffee smell that smells delicious and a minty tangling sensation to the lips when applied.
These are the colours available. My favourites are UMMA and SADDIE. I thought that every colour here was super pretty and wearable. I honestly liked every shade, and thought the colours were very suitable for Asian pale skin like mine. You have to try it for yourselves to believe what I say. It was so hard to choose a favourite. For lids and cheeks, I would go for shades like SALLY and LUCY! What’s your favourite shade?

So recently I thought I needed to shed some weight as I gained quite a bit over the festive periods hence when I discovered Antidote – a juice cleanse programme , I knew I had to try it. I have tried a couple of juice fasts before and they have worked perfectly well for me so I was more than ready for this.
There are five types of cleanse to choose from – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Master and Active cleanse. And you can also choose from 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 day cleanse.
I went for the 5 day Master Cleanse which is a 100% vegetable cleanse that washes your system with nothing but pure nutrition.
I allowed a couple of friends to try out the juice and they actually LOVED IT (yes, even guys)! The taste was more of an interesting one to me. I liked that when I drank it, it made me feel healthy, clean and refreshed all at the same time however the taste probably took me some time to get used to it. Thank goodness for the beetroot juice and almond nut milk that made it better! The juice texture was smooth and tasted quite nice after getting used to.
The first day was ok but by the third day, I got rather uneasy and wanted to eat and munch something. I did try not to eat anything and only resorted to drinking soup when I needed something savoury. Each day comprises of 6 bottles of juice. Each bottle is titled with the number, name and ingredients of the juice. Find out more information on each bottle below:
I lost about 2-3kg after the entire cleanse and am already thinking of trying out more! If you are new to juice fasting, you might want to try out the beginner cleanse however if you think you are up for a challenge, why not go straight for the Master Cleanse like I did? You might be in for a treat! Order through here.
Many people have been asking me about my skincare routine and how I remained so radiant everyday. I guess this has to do with my recent addition to my skincare routine. Introducing my current fave – Dr. Ci:Labo Super-100 EGF.
Dr.Ci:Labo’s Super-100 EGF is a rich essence that contains Epidermal Growth Factor that helps reduce newly-developing wrinkles.
This beauty serum helps keep skin moisturized, firm and smooth.
I found the texture to be slightly towards sticky but however very quickly absorbed into the skin.
There was not much smell for me. I guess it was odourless to a certain extent.
I felt that after using it, my skin was visibly more moisturised and hydrated. Fine lines were significantly reduced as well.
Super-100 EGF comes in 2 sizes, $53 for 10ml and $ 129 for 30ml. Droppers sold separately at $4. I would definitely recommend purchasing the droppers because they are far more hygienic as compared as to applying directly from the bottle itself.
Use both morning and night. You can either use it alone – as a beauty serum or add it into your current regime.
How do you add it into your current routine? Add Super-100 EGF to a product (like your regular moisturiser) you are using right now, you can create an original skincare product just the way you like it and my favourite combination would be with Dr. Ci:Labo Aqua Collagen Gels.
This product is available at Dr.Ci:Labo Ion store, via online at www.ci–labo.com.sg and selected Watsons.

Summertime is here. Do your nails need a makeover? We’ve got the inside skinny on getting your nails into tiptop shape. Summertime means lots of outdoor activities and open-toed shoes. Neglected feet and unkempt toes are not a pretty sight.
To help your feet get summer ready, here are 3 easy ways to pamper your own feet:
1. DIY PAMPERING – It is not necessary to blow money on salon pedicures. Now everything can be DIY-ed. Why not opt for a home pedi? Soak your feet in lukewarm water to soften your nails. Dig any dirt out from under your nails and clip away your nails before filing. Apply a layer of base coat to prevent yellowing and finish off with a top coat.
2. BOLD POLISH COLORS – You can afford to go funky this sumer! These trendy Creative Play Minis are perfect to bring on any vacation so you can always be summer nail ready. Change your nail colour easily.
4. Weather changes especially like the dry season of summer, expect few patches of dry skin. The easiest way to soften these rough patches is by first, soaking your feet in warm water and exfoliating to remove the extra dry skin. After you towel dry your feet, rub a lotion or a medical foot care (e.g. Allpresan Pro Footcare for Cracked Skin) exclusively for foot care purposes over the dry patches of your feet to allow your skin to re-absorb moisture.
I wished I was introduced to the brand Allpresan earlier. The first foot care product to be tested according to pharmaceutical standards, the Allpresan® PRO Footcare has been shown to optimize the skin condition and skin moisture.
Allpresan® PRO Footcare is equipped with BarrioExpert® LIPO2 Skin Repair Technology. The basis of BarrioExpert® LIPO2 Skin Repair Technology is imitation of the structures in the skin barrier by skin- related lipids which arrange themselves in typical double layers just like natural lipids. All you need is 1.5cm-3cm of mousse each usage. The mousse like texture glides on smoothly making it easy to apply.
The range has shown significant results. Allpresan® PRO Footcare fills the gaps in the lipid film of the skin barrier after only 2 weeks of application. When Allpresan® PRO Footcare has been used for 4 weeks, the amount of lipids in the lipid matrix corresponds to the normal level of healthy skin!
We can now achieve healthy skin barrier after 4 weeks of using Allpresan® PRO Footcare. I like how this improves eczema and targets several important issues like dry rough skin, sweaty feet, anti fungal protection, foot deodorant and shoe deodorant. They have other products for the feet such as foot bath concentrate and the products comes in mousse and cream versions.
Gone are the days where summer colors are all bright and sunny! Now we get an assortment of earthy and rustic tones to choose from thanks to CND NEW Craft Culture collection!
