Combat skin woes with Etude House Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum & Zero Sebum Line

Hi Loves!

A while back Etude House launched their Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum, a whitening serum that promises to transform your skin from the inside out for a flawlessly radiant complexion. Along with the serum, Etude House also has a new, Zero Sebum Line to rescue all princesses from the dreaded sebum built up for beautifully matte skin, all day long! Zero Sebum Line features three products for a complete sebum-free solution that removes, controls and absorb sebum throughout the day.

Etude House Sebum Control 002The Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum is a whit-ish translucent watery consistency serum which I apply after my toner and before my make up base. It is quite moisturising as well. I would recommend if you’re looking for an affordable moisturizing and whitening serum.

Key ingredients include Pearl and Lavender Extracts which correct blemishes and spots while kissing the skin with glowing radiance! Hyaluronic Acid and Hydrolyzed Collagen nourishes and further hydrates your skin to keep it ever youthful, supple and bouncing with vitality! A good dose of Vitamin C Derivatives helps to lighten your skin naturally, penetrating deep into skin for a luminous effect everyone will notice!

Etude House Sebum Control 001The Zero Sebum Line include 1. White Sebum Clear 2. All Day Matte Gel and 3. Drying Powder.

The Zero Sebum Line is equipped with active ingredients such as Sugar Polymer, Cotton Flower and Mixed Herb Extracts, the Zero Sebum Line effectively ensures your skin stays Sebum- free and pretty throughout the day. Sugar Polymer with Plankton Extract absorbs the sebum above the skin to help skin remain powdery all day long. The Cotton Extract prevents skin damage caused by sebum while the Mixed Herb Extract helps to relax and soothe skin, with an added antibacterial effect so that your skin gets the protection and care it truly deserves

Zero Sebum White Sebum Clear is to be used after cleansing and toning, on areas like forehead, nose and chin and it will dissolve white bumpy sebum without water.

Zero Sebum All Day Matt Gel is a finishing gel that contains natural organic grain powder, which collects and controls the sebum for all day long sebum-free skin. To be used as a finishing step in the mornings and evenings. Dispense an appropriate amount and apply softly on skin in an inward to outward motion.

Last but not the least, Zero Sebum Drying Powder is a Pact Powder that absorbs sebum without affecting make up. Contains Natural Mineral Powder (80%) that adheres onto skin texture to prevent caking. Tap on areas with sebum trouble after skincare or make up application. I like to use this powder on my nose and forehead after applying my foundation to matt-ify the areas. I recommend this if you have oily T-zones and want to minimize shine, you can apply in the morning and reapply throughout the day.

ETUDE HOUSE Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum retails for $40. The serum and ETUDE HOUSE Zero Sebum Line retails for White Sebum Clear $19.90, All Day Matte Gel $19.90 and Drying Powder $13.90. all ETUDE HOUSE outlets in Singapore.

Fall in love with Emily Fruit Crisps

The story of Emily fruit crisp is an interesting one. Business and life partners Emily Wong and Alex Ascani met in London. Alex studied in Singapore and it was on a trip back to Asia that they discovered how to make fruit crisp. Alex decided to name the brand after Emily, so he could bring Emily wherever he went and now, make the world fall in love with Emily… fruit crisps.

The fruit crisps come in banana, apple and pineapple flavours. All natural fruit ingredients with a touch of oil, no gluten, sugar or preservatives, very healthy and tasty.

Clio Kill Cover Makeup Launch

Hi Loves!

If you haven’t already seen them in stores, Clio launched a series of Virgin Kiss Tension Lip colours with ambassador and popular Korean actress Gong Hyo Jin fronting the campaign! In addition to the Virgin Kiss Tension Lip colours, we were also introduced to Clio’s Kill Cover Founwear, cushion foundation and Tattoo Kill Brows, eyebrow marker and mascara at the media launch and preview. Virgin Kiss Tension Lip colours come in a black matte bullet with Gong Hyo Jin’s signature. The lip colours are trendy, pigmented and glides on smoothly, you only need to “do it just once!” (han bon man ha ja!)  I’m a huge fan of Clio’s liquid eyeliner, the best I’ve ever tried and generally am fond of the make up range for their easy on the skin formulation and colours that creates a trendy, sharp look.
Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 001 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 002 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 003These Korean treats are so authentic and delicious.

Clio Kill Cover Founwear comes in 03 and 04. 04 is a better match for my skin tone, although I can also wear 03 for a lighter skin tone. I like the formulation as it provides good coverage without being too thick and it’s also hydrating without being too dewy, with a matte finish.Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 008 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 009 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 010 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 011 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 012 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 013 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 014 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 015 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 016 Clio Kill Cover Liquid Foundation, Virgin Kiss Lip Tension and Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow 017For Clio’s Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow, apply on the marker on the brows the night before and brush on in the morning for colour that lasts all day.

Bio-essence Deep Exfoliating Gel & Face Lifting Cream Extra Strength Review

Hi Loves!

I’m beginning to find my neck lines getting more defined, so it’s super timely that Bio-essence has launched an enhanced formula of their Face Lifting Cream to give women an extra lift, extra V shape facial contour.

Packed with Royal Jelly and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the new Extra Strength Face Lifting Cream promises to help achieve improvements in skin elasticity, reduction in wrinkle counts and instant facial contour reduction within 10 minutes of usage. Within just 3 consecutive nights of use, I had a reduction of 0.5cm along my jaw line/chin, pretty remarkable! 😳 I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for an effective lifting facial cream for the neck and lower face. 

Maximise the V-shape facial contour effect of the new Extra Strength Face Lifting Cream with Royal Jelly & ATP by using Bio-essence new Deep Exfoliating Gel (Oil Control) or Deep Exfoliating Gel (Sensitive Skin). I personally prefer sensitive skin formula as its gentler on the skin. 😌

Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur & Liquid Lips

Hi Loves!

This blog post and review is a little late in coming. Just in this year alone, I’ve published 170 articles and several more dozens to go and whilst I was preparing for another Etude House product feature and review post, I realized that I haven’t blogged about this from many months back, oops! It must have fell through the cracks, nonetheless it’s still not too late as these products are still on sale in stores. 🙂

To help you to achieve the perfect selfie shot, Etude House launched their Beauty Shot Face Blur (S$27.90) which acts as an all in one primer + foundation base, blurring out imperfections for a smoother skin texture. Also, to give an insta-colour to the face, pair your foundation with Color in Liquid Lips (S$17.90), a combination of lipstick, gloss and stain all in one. I call it the liquid version of Etude House iconic Dear My Wish Lips Talk, really and gloss gives a sexier pout on photos. What’s not to love? Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 003 Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 001 Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 002 Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and Liquid Lips 004Also grabbed a refill for my Any Cushion in Peach (Primer), Eyebrow Liner and Eyeshadow applicators during a members’ sale.

Leather & Lace

Hi loves!

Do you love the leather & lace combination like I do? If the outfit seems similar, it’s because I wore this out to Affordable Art Fair 2015.

Super love this cute Crossbody Bag with chain from Sammydress, available here. I bought my white lace dress from Temt in Singapore. You can also shop from Sammydress’s collection of white lace dresses here. Alternatively, I also recommend this grey lace sweater mini dress. The pieces from Sammydress are super affordable with most pieces below $20, and even below $10. The quality and finishing may not be perfect but they definitely provide a great variety. Items ship from China and takes 1-2 weeks to arrive.

Thank you Sammydress for leather bag and grey lace sweater mini dress!

A few of my favourites from Affordable Art Fair 2015

Hi Loves!

Back in November, I attended Affordable Art Fair 2015 with my gal pal Christabelle, just like we did last year. It’s held at F1 Pit building at Marina South.  This year there were 86 participating galleries from Singapore, Asia, Australia, America and Europe with works by 650 artists from all over the world. I have snapped a few of my favourite art works from Affordable Art Fair, sorry in advance if I don’t have the proper credit to the artists!

Your girlfriend will love Anna Sui’s Romantic & Holiday Snow Christmas Collection

Hi Loves!

A while back I shared about Anna Sui’s Autumn collection and share a preview of their new Romantica fragrance. Today I’m back to share with you more about the Romantica fragrance and their Christmas, limited edition Holiday Snow collection!!!

Anna Sui Romantica ReviewIf fairytales were flowers, they will smell like Anna Sui Romantica fragrance – charming, fresh & fabulous~ I love everything about the fragrance, the sweet mesmerizing floral fruit scent, to it’s feminine & girly intricately designed packaging with gold floral details.

Classified as a Sparkling Floral, it is at once joyous and sensuous, lively and exciting. The top note opens with a floaty feeling of Calabria Bergamot, Mandarin Essence, Sparkling Pomegranate, and Watery Quince. It is giddy, it is glorious, it is like falling in love all over again.

Soon to be followed by Rose de Mai, Osmanthus Absolute, Jasmine Petals, and Orange Blossom, the romance builds to a crescendo, awakening a deeper sensuality. Water Lily and Peony Blossom add a touch of whimsy and freshness to the heart.

And then it settles with White Ceylon Cedarwood, Sheer Amber, Indonesian Sandalwood, and Creamy Musk.

Anna Sui Romantica 30ml: $68
Anna Sui Romantica 50ml: $93
Anna Sui Romantica 75ml: $119

Anna Sui Holiday Snow Thaw Heart ReviewAnna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection offers 2 options, Frozen Love & Thawed Heart ($88 per collection), pictured.
Each collection comes with:
• Rose Cheek Color N 6g
• Lip Stick M 3g
• Color Powder 2.3g
• Box(Size: W150mm × H58mm × D103mm/Material: Wood, artificial leather)

Anna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection comes in a very precious and attractive packaging which definitely makes for a great Christmas gift for your girlfriend. Priced at $88, it’s also a value set with 3 beauty products and a solid wooden casing which is super pretty!

E Pure Membranous Jelly Mask Review

Hi Loves!

Are you a facial mask lover? If you are, I am sure you are familiar with mask sheets which are popular in Korea and Taiwan, as well as Clay masks which are popular in US. But, have you heard about Jelly Mask? Well, I sure haven’t before I tried ePure Membranous Jelly Mask and I must say, it is a very special mask!
E Pure Membranous Jelly Mask Blogger ReviewePure Membranous Jelly Mask comes in a box of 3, with a spatula, $39.90 / box.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 11.13.14 pm

Main ingredients include Alpha Arbutin, Seaweed Extract, Epure Natural Vanila Scent, Jojoba Leaf Extract, & Hyaluronic Acid – Triple Moist Complex (HA-TMC).

ePure mask boasts that after 25 minutes, it leaves the skin 60% more hydrated, 55% more refined and 52% brighter.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 11.13.26 pm

Directions:
1. Apply jelly mask with the spatula, apply a thick layer 0.3-0.5cm.
2. Relax and leave on for 15-30 minutes.
3. Wash it off using warm water.
4. Mask can be apply to eyes area to lighten dark eyes circle.

Tips
For the first month of using éPure, use 3 times a week.
After the first month of using éPure, you can cut down on the frequency to once OR twice a week depending on the results that you are after.
Mask can be applied to eye area to lighten dark eye circles and problem area can apply thicker for better result.

My Review
I really enjoyed using the ePure jelly mask and can see why it has become quite the cult mask in Asia. Whilst the application requires more effort than a facial sheet mask, the experience is also correspondingly more refreshing. The jelly mask is translucent and clear from the sachet and after leaving it on for 30 minutes, it is as though the jelly absorbs all the oil and dirt from the pores that it becomes slightly cloudy when removed. The other remarkable quality of the mask is that it leaves the skin super refreshed, which can be accrued to the Hyaluaronic Acid which deeply hydrates the skin and leaving it supple for many hours.

PURCHASE NOW to enjoy the launching price of $49.90 (U.P.$59.90) for a pack of 5. Log on to www.epureskin.com.sg Or PM them on facebook.com/epureskinsg!

The Body Shop Christmas Party

Hi Loves!

Christmas is literally just round the corner and I’ll be blogging about all things Christmas related these few days! ^^ The Body Shop hosted the first Christmas media preview (that I’ve attended, that is) which I think is more appropriate to call it a party, it was so much fun! After learning about all the new Christmas products for sale and the charity work The Body Shop is taking part in this Christmas, we went around the venue making Christmas themed souvenirs, food & drinks. Just thinking about it now makes me want to organize a similar Christmas party with a few friends and have fun! Enough of my introduction, scroll on for photos and captions! ^^

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Media Preview 002We walked down this black infographic path while also learning about striking information about water scarcity in some places that WaterAid is reaching out to.

For over 650 million people across the world, access to safe water is not even possible and around 1,400 people die each day from diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation.

This Christmas, The Body Shop is partnering with international charity WaterAid to help transform lives through access to safe water. For every specially selected gift bought, WaterAid can provide a family in Ethiopia with one day of safe water.

I really love the eyeshadow palettes. The colour payoff for the eyeshadow palette is great. Swinging Silver gives a cooler, edgier vibe while Grooving Gold gives a warmer & glamourous look. These colours will also last you beyond the Christmas season, highly recommended! See the full Christmas limited edition make up collection here.
