Browtisan Creative Eyebrow Embroidery Review

Hi Loves~

A while back, I popped by Browtisan’s Pop Up Booth at ION Orchard Atrium for a quickย Browtisan Creative Eyebrow Embroidery session. Eyebrow artisan and Browtisan founder Coco designed and did a Gradient Eyebrow Embroidery for me and I love it!!! Check out what went down in the photos below! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And the embroidery session began after Coco drew on the eyebrows for me using pencil first~

Thank you Browtisan & Yi Yun for inviting me down for the the ION Orchard Pop Up and Coco for my beautiful new brows! <3

If you’re wondering, the entire session is painless especially since they apply on anaesthetic cream first. I love how beautiful, feminine, demure and on trend the eyebrow embroidery design and I’ve gotten so much compliments from family and friends, I highly recommend Browtisan not only for their beautiful designs but also for their top notch, professional and friendly service!

But while going through my blog drafts folder, I found 2 Etude House related folders that I’ve yet to publish, so here they are! ๐Ÿ™‚

Most Impressive Drugstore Eyeshadow? | Makeup Review & Brush Care

Today I’ll be reviewing eyes and brow makeup from two drugstore brands Kate Tokyo and Clio, followed by sharing about a beauty and brush care package from the lovely folks from Sigma!

I’ve been using Kate Tokyo’s new and latest Forming Edge eyeshadow palettes a lot lately and am very impressed by its superb pigmentation, beautiful colours and comfortable and long wearingย formula. My favourite colour is PK-01 which I incidentally dropped from my makeup shelve today after applying it T_T so I will be purchasing a replacement from Watsons.

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0002 Kate Tokyo’s new and latest Forming Edge eyeshadow palettes and BB Powder Changing Mousse ($23.50 each).

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0007 Kate Tokyo’s new and latest Forming Edge eyeshadow palettes in BR-3 (brown), PK-1 (pink), BU-1(blue) and GD-1 (green). Check out all eight shades on their site here.Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0003 Kate Tokyo’s Forming Edge eyeshadow palette in PK-1, my favourite of the 4 shades. The colour in the middle is actually more peach (pinkish orange) than pink, nonetheless the colours in the palette complements very well for a sweet and romantic look that’s wearable on a daily basis too. Super love!

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0004 Kate Tokyo’s Forming Edge eyeshadow palette in BR-3 is my second favourite colour of choice and I pick this colour on days when I want to go for a more understated glam look, like this:

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0005 Kate Tokyo’s Forming Edge eyeshadow palette in BU-1ย is a colour I have yet to try but when I do, I’d likely match it with gold or orange to create a more friendly look rather than just full blue, which is a tricky look to wear on its own on a regular day.

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0006 Kate Tokyo’s Forming Edge eyeshadow palette in GD-1, unfortunately the powder came cracked when I received it, which goes to show how fragile it is, so do be careful when you handle them. Though the pigment and formula is great, and the fancy diamond packaging looks pretty, it does make it more fragile.

Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000 Kate Tokyo Forming Edge Eyeshadow BB Mousse Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0001 KATE Powdery Mousse BB.ย  I have yet to try this out.
This lightweight mousse promises to: transform into powder upon application for excellent shine-free coverage that lasts all day! Whatโ€™s more, your skin is pampered with all the nourishing goodness of BB cream for perfect skin from the inside out. Comes in 2 shades, 01 Bright colour and 02 Natural colour.

Older launches which I have yet to review on the blog!

Kate Tokyo Long Lash Mascara Digital Eyeliner Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000 Kate Tokyo Long Lash Mascara Digital Eyeliner Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0001

Kate Virtual Lash Liner (Mascara) $25.50 promises to amp up the drama with voluminous and lush lashes with the new KATE VIRTUAL LASH LINER. The new Hard Black Formula and refined wax-polymer-pigment ratio unfailingly creates intense, long-lasting black colouration.ย The formula also features straight and curled fibres to simultaneously curl and lengthen your lashes, lifting them up and fixing them in place for curves that last.ย The KATE VIRTUAL LASH LINER also features a compact applicator wand that can pack on the long-wearing formula. Precisely positioned bristles spread lashes apart, coating every last one for maximum impact.

I’ve had it for a while, but as I am crafting this post, I can’t recall my review of this mascara. Oops! I will be wearing and testing it again and share my update on IG. Based on the promise of the product, I do think it will suit my short and sparse eye lashes. I don’t wear mascaras often and when I do, I tend to go back to the few that I’ve tried and like, which are currently KPalette’s Lash Perm Volume Mascara (Purple) and Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara. Previously I was using and loving Lancome’s Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara and Maybelline’s Cat Eye (quick some time back).ย It is very important for me that a mascara has an easy to remove formula, dries fast, is lightweight, doesn’t smudge and somehow still magically extends my eyelashes and gives some volume. Very demanding, I know.ย 

Define your eyes in brilliant black with the new KATE Digital Memory Liner ($20.50). Intense, all-day colouration emphasises your eyes in a single stroke of the super-fine flat brush.ย ย The KATE DIGITAL MEMORY LINER features two types of polymers to ensure all-day resistance to smudging, fading, sebum, sweat and water. These polymers have been carefully arranged for fuss-free removal of the formula with warm water.

KATE Digital Memory Liner is a new eyeliner favourite. I use eyeliner on a daily basis, before this, my holy grail favourite is Clio’s Kill Black and Brown brush liner for it’s smudge proof formula which cleans easily with no stains or marks.ย By comparisonย Kateย Digital Memory Liner is more intense, equally smudge proof and while it cleans with no mark/stains, it does require more makeup remover to clean off.

Kate Tokyo Brow Set Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000Rounding off my Kate Tokyo review with their Eyebrow Set, which comes with the brow palette, brush and comb, was retailing at $20.50, in December 2015. Not sure if you can still find the same promotion now. My Japanese friend commenting on IG (the same pic as above) that Kate is a very popular brand in Japan and that she has bought the same brow palette 10 times! Wow. However I am more of a eyebrow pencil kinda gal… I tried to apply and like this product but I am just not as efficient with this eyebrow palette as I am with the eyebrow pencil… oops.

Clio Singapore KillBrow Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000ย That is why we need more than one brand in the market, such as Clio which caters to girls like me who prefers eyebrow pencil rather than eyebrow palette, although you an also spot their version above. They also have their Kill Brow All Day Tattoo (which sold out in Korean when they first launched), which is the ย K version of Benefit’s Gimme Brow, Gel Brow Pencil and waterproof eyeliners! Have actually yet to break into all of them yet, but do check them out in Watsons stores. As mentioned above, I highly recommend Clio’s Kill Black and Brown brush eyeliner and lately am also really loving their Gradation Dual Eyebrow pencil which is their new summer 2016 collection, which I will review in another post! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sigma Brushes & Brush Care Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000ย Sometime back, the kind folks of Sigmaย sent me this very lovely beauty and brush care set.Sigma Brushes & Brush Care Blogger Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0001

Get Summer Ready | Personal Care Beauty Reviews

As we enter into the month of June, this means Summer is fast upon us… And in the thick of summer, it’s important for us to care for our skin and hair to make sure we’re prepared for and protected from the heat and humidity!

As you would know by now, if you’ve been reading my past few blog posts and following me on my IG, ย I’ve literally got tons of beauty products for review and it would take me too much time and inertia to review them singly / per range on a dedicated blog post, so I’ve decided to compile relevant products together in a multi-review post! So here goes the first of such posts to come. ๐Ÿ˜‰

V-Mina Personal Care Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000I was sent thisย V-Mina Feminine Hygiene Trial Pack some time end last year and I particularly like the Cleansing Mousse. I am not a daily user of female personal hygiene care because I feel that normal body care products are sufficient for me. However during “that time of the month” aka periods, using personal hygiene care feels extra nice. Read more about V-Mina on their site here and purchase their products online here.

OKDGG Beauty Products Ena Teo Enabalista_0000 OKDGG Beauty Products Ena Teo Enabalista_0001So many Korean beauty products, so little time to try and buy them. If you’re a huge Korean skincare, makeup and fashion lover like I am, you might be happy to know of OKDGG which is a mega online shopping mall that houses 1,300 brands under one site and they are currently offering free shipping for purchases over $100(usd) and below 10kg! ย I have tried the Jeju Aloe Vera gel which is a very refreshing and moisturizing water gel based cream, I’d recommend this for days after a day at the beach. The Too School For Cool Milk Tint red is a pastel red lip tint with a glossy effect. ย Still haven’t tried the Wonder Patch Belly Wing, but if you have, leave a comment and share your views! For more makeup and skincare products on OKDGG, visit here. ย And I do love a pretty pink delivery box. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dove Volume Nourishment Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000If you’re looking for a lightweight Volume enhancing and nourishing hair care, try Dove’s Volume Nourishment range consisting of Shampoo, Conditioner and Root Lift Spray. I personally have rather thick hair so I can’t really attest to the effects of this range in a sense that its effects aren’t that remarkable for me. But when I tried the range for review, I liked that it was lightweight and effective in cleansing and didn’t leave any greasy residue on the hair. Also, my friend Fion says the Root Lift Spray really works for her.ย 

Rich CC Hair Care DCS Skincare Stenders Skincare Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000

Another haircare range I’ve tried is Rich Pure Luxury Miracle Renew CC Shampoo and Cream. Honestly I thought the product packaging was so ordinary despite the impressive name “Rich Pure Luxury Miracle Renew CC Shampoo”. However after using it, I was impressed by it and also really like the grape scent. I also saw it being on featured on one of the local magazines’ beauty awards (sorry can’t recall ย now which magazine it is).

A quick research online shows the write up on the official US site as;
Infused with wine extract, the shampoo actively brighten hair colour and protects hair from environmental damage. It also moisturises hair and scalp thanks to an algae extract derived from seaweed thatโ€™s rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals.ย The shampoo contains a beautiful blend of argan oil and hydrolyzed wheat, soy and corn proteins to create soft, shiny hair thatโ€™s smooth and free of frizz.
Instructions: Apply to damp hair, massage into a lather then rinse. Repeat if necessary. For optimum results use with RICH Pure Luxury MIracle Renew CC Conditioner.

I also used the CC cream after wash and before blow dry and it’s a non greasy and moisturizing formula. Would definitely recommend this moisturizing and nourishing hair care range for dry hair.ย You can purchase the product on SuzanniBeaute hereย for $13.50 for 250ml, which is cheaper than Guardian retailing at $17.90. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The CC Cream retails at $16.50 on SuzanniBeaute.

Have previously posted about DCS Nutriderm here. As for the Stenders skincare, I like the moisturizing toner but find the Hydrating Facial Gel a tad too concentrated for my skin, but my friend Christabelle likes them just fine. What’s your current skincare favourites?

Lip Hop Sunblocks Review Ena Teo Enabalista_0000Last but not the least, if you’re looking for an affordable sun screen range, consider LipHop, a made in Korea sun care line with products Ultra Whitening Sun Protection Lotion, Kids Hypoallergenic Sun Protection Lotion, Super Defence Ex Sun Protection Milk, Moisturizing Weightless Sun Protection Spray and Soothing Aloe Vera Gel. With all of the variety, you’reย bound to find a type of sun block that suits your preference and needs this summer. I’d brought these along with me on my trip to Penang a while back and I like the lightweightย Ultra Whitening Sun Protection Lotion. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s your summer plans? I’m definitely planning for a day in my white Kaftan and sipping mojito by the beach. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stay Hip & Chic with BIG Hotel Singapore

Over the recent labour day holiday, Christabelle and I enjoyed our extended weekend at boutique hotel, BIG Hotel Singapore. Super love the chic, grey textured walls and its Pinterest-worthy minimalistic interior. <3

Belle and I made full use of our 1D1N with girly activities such as playing with new make up, photo taking at the alley ways/spots near by the hotel, thai food at Aroy Dee for dinner, The Daily Scoop (at School of the Arts) for desserts and masks (mutiple, yes, haha) time before we called it a night. During our fruitful staycation, we were also appropriately (mostly me, haha since Belle doesn’t really drinks coffee) with Nespresso and Cafedirect coffee, it’s sweet that BIG Hotel has a Nespresso machine in the room. Have I mentioned how much I love the chic coffee corner? ๐Ÿ˜‰BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0003 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0008 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0010 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0009 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0006 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0007 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0004 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0005BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0013BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0012 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0011 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0014New cosmetics from Etude House Play 101 Sticks / cushion concealers, Laneige BB Cushion, K-Palette Rose Eyeliner, Kate Tokyo Eyeshadow Palettes, Stenders Handcream and Lipbalm.

I brought along Origin’s Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores, and found out that Christabelle is a huge fan of this brand and been using this mask regularly which helps with her oily skin type, once a week.

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0031

The comfy bed and sheets made for a great night’s rest. All in, BIG Hotel is an affordable, chic option that I’d recommendย whether you’re considering for a local stay-cation or visiting from abroad. Staff we met at the hotel were also very pleasant and courteous – they definitely made our stay that much sweeter. Plus, it’s located conveniently close to Bugis MRT (if you’re taking the train down from Changi Airport, from the green line) and walking distance to Dhoby Ghaut and Little India where you can explore more of Singapore whether for shopping, dining or cultural spots. If you’re keen, you can also check out my alma-mater LASALLE College of the Arts which is literally behind BIG hotel, if you’re in luck you might coincide your stay with graduating students’ exhibitions. happening from now, 20th May to 1st June!

Thank you BIG Hotelย & Chelsea for arranging the stay for review!

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,ย Zero Sebum Line to rescue all princesses from the dreaded sebum built up for beautifully matte skin, all day long!ย 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 002Theย 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 001Theย 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.ย 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.ย 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 aย Pact Powder that absorbs sebum without affecting make up. Contains Natural Mineral Powder (80%) that adheres onto skin texture to prevent caking.ย 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.

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.ย The lip colours are trendy, pigmented and glides on smoothly, you only need to “do it just once!” (han bon man ha ja!) ย 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 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.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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?ย 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.

TheFaceShop Ink Lipquid Review

Hi Loves!

Do you fancy lipsticks but sometimes wish they were more moisturising? Or perhaps you like lip gloss but wish they were less sticky and more pigmented?

THE FACE SHOP INK LIPQUID 001 Well, TheFaceShop make up creators definitely heard your wishes because they’ve come up with Ink Lipquid which promises to be Lipstick, Lip gloss & Lip Tint all in one, plus it’s super moisturizing. What I love about Ink Lipquid is that it delivers the colours while retaining its hydrating sensation and it has a sweet scent.

THE FACE SHOP INK LIPQUID 002

3 Key Points of Ink Lipquid:

  1. Lasts for 12 hours with serum base moisture
    Maintains moisture on lips with 70% water base (*Clinical test complete)
  2. Color stain maintained for 12 hours
    Vivid colours that are long lasting on lips for up to 12 hours (*Clinical test complete)
  3. A light touch with the penโ€™s tip completes fully colored lips
    An ink pen tip like brush helps in application of colour, presenting a clear lip shape

The new Ink Lipquid is equipped with THEFACESHOPโ€™s very own makeup technology- โ€œMoisture Holding Systemโ€. This makeup technology helps maintain moisture with its water-holding ingredient.

In addition, the โ€œInk Staying Polymerโ€ technology helps maintain fresh and clean make up through creating a light and transparent film layer that holds moisture and color.

THE FACE SHOP INK LIPQUID colours 001

Overall I find that these Ink Lipquids appealing because of the moisturizing texture, scent and lasting tints, if you’re picking the lighter colours, you may have to swipe 2 layers, especially if you have darker lips like I do.

TheFaceShop Ink Liquids are available in stores island wide.

Thank you TheFaceShop Singapore for sending these Ink Lipquids over for review!

Retro Days with MAC Wash & Dry Collection & Huggable Lips Collection

Hi Loves!

I may profess to be beauty junkie, but my level is no where near MAC’s. What do I mean? I mean they launch some 3-4 collections a month, (yes that’s about 1 a week, or sometimes simultaneously they launch 4 collections in a month). So by the time you’re reading this, the collections here are most probably sold out, since my blog posts are mostly belated reviews, heh. Nonetheless, some of the key basics like the foundations would still be there, and if you’re in love in sometime LE featured here, you can try it to find it on Amazon or Carousell! If all else fails… Visit the shop to ask for similar colours, or buy something new from their current collections. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyhoo, read on to check out what went down in store on the day Smita and I went to check out Beno (MAC’s makeup artist) working magic on the model with Wash & Dry collection and of course also checking out the then new Huggable Lips collection. ๐Ÿ˜€

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 001Beno highly recommends this as a skin prep all over the face before foundation. He says this is particularly good for models when they come in with dull skin, it helps to perk, brighten and hydrate their skin.

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 002Beno also swears by Lightful C softening lotion(toner), a rather new product launched this year, Beno says that this product with Vit C helps to brighten the skin.ย 

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 003MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 004MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 005Beno applied Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof foundation on the model with a brush.
MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 006Already with a bright pop or green eyeliner on, Beno applies a more subdued lip colour on the model.

Super gorgeous and trendy orange and golds.MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 011Smita lovesss theย highlighter Beno applied on her.

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 012And the super gorgeous Wash & Dry collection. Really love the 2 face foundation brush.

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 013

Now on to the Huggable Lips collection! These lipsticks are amazing. They give your lips a very bouncy feel and wet look. I have no idea how that is huggable. And I super love the sleek lip bullet, a change compared to the usual MAC lip bullets. Much prefer this actually!MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 014 MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 015MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 016 MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 017With the super cute bear mascot!

MAC Wash & Dry MAC Huggable Lips 018And the MAC makeup expert Beno, follow him on IG @benolim!

Makeupstore Artist Plexi Gloss LipglossSo we walked around Sephora and chanced upon the launch of Makeupstore’s Artist Plexi Gloss/lipgloss and I won the sample set and a pouch and a lip over. #Blessed. It’s true I am very blessed at winning lucky dips.ย 

Makeupstore Artist Plexi Lip Gloss Review

Here we are with our lip overs. I chose a bright red and I do love the lip gloss that gave very good hydrating and pigmented coverage without the typical sticky feeling.

Young, sweet and lanky actress Carrie Wong came with an entourage of fans (who enthusiastically waited and cheered outside for her) and joined in the fun at the opening launch!

New ITEMS: Cherry Blossom & Rose Garden Eye Palette. SO PRETTY, the colours!Enabalista Etudehouse Vivo City Opening 012 Enabalista Etudehouse Vivo City Opening 011

I’d personally go for the Rose Garden, only because I already have a pink eyeshadow set at home – plus the coral colour for the Rose Garden set is UNIQUE.

These chuby Bling Bling eyeshadow pens caught my eyes!!! I’d opt for Ivory Baby (middle colour) but I decided to go with a Play 101 Pencil in 4 which is a off white colour! Sorry forgot to snap a photo, but you’ll see it in my product photos later below. ๐Ÿ™‚Enabalista Etudehouse Vivo City Opening 028

Limited Edition ETUDE x KERRIE HESS NEW DREAMING SWAN collection.

Kerrie Hess is a renowned international fashion illustrator and her works are feminine and beautiful and she collaborated with ETUDE to release an enviable collection of super cute illustrations with a ย ballerina theme, you’ll see!:

Swatches, these colours are slightly pastel when swatched, and even more pastel when applied on the lips – at least for the coral one which I have tried. ย I like Jete Pink and En Haute Pink cause I am naturally drawn to pinks as they are more wearable for daily use and ย I shall stop obsessing over dark pinks (the Arabesque Pink which I have 101 similar colours at home)! This collection of lipsticks are more matte in texture and thus not as moisturizing as the typical Dear My Wish Lips Talk collection. BUT OH SO CUTE CASING. I have this urge to go and buy another lipstick (after visiting the new store 2 times in 3 days) just because, you know, cute casing. SIGH. #lipstickobsession #suckerforcutepackaging

I like the Eye & Cheek blusher in this no3. Arabesque Rosy too!Enabalista Etudehouse Dreaming Swan Limited Edition Collection 008

SO, my second time in the store on Sunday, I GOT THE LAST Eye & Cheek in no.5 in En Haute Pink. LAST PIECE = DESTINY. (Even thought I quite clearly liked no.3 the first time I went. Girls.)

I forgot to snap a picture of the brush sample, but the brush from this collection is also out of stock! So fans will have to hope and wait for restock, if any!

Hi Loves!
I was nominated by the very lovely and sweet Kymm of Diagonalll Beauty & Lifestyle blog last September for the Liebster Award! Thank you Kymmy! <3 Be sure to check out her blog, as well her answers to her Liebster Award nomination here.
liebsteraward
Basically, it’s an awardย given to up and
coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers by other bloggers in the community. The word “Liebster” itself is German, meaning “sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, loveliest, cutest, a darling… (and the list goes on, but simply, everything nice)”.
As of today, I have less than 200 (198 to be exact! :P) blog followers on my blog, according to WordPress. I won’t really consider myself as an “up and coming” blogger since this is my 5th year of blogging, but I really appreciate this nomination and even though I procrastinated soooo long, I want to pass on this Liebster Award and love to other bloggers too! ๐Ÿ˜€
Rules

Thank the person who nominated you by linking their blog.

Answer the 11 questions the nominator gave you.

Nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Create 11 questions for your nominees.

Let your nominees know by getting in touch with them.

Kymm’s Questions

1. What made you start your beauty blog?
I started Enabalista in end 2010 when I was still a Fashion Media & Industries (Management) student in LASALLE and wanted to share my behind the scenes photos and review of Fashion Week in Singapore. Then I also decided to include skincare reviews when I signed up to receive and review products from Sample Store. Although I have since stopped reviewing products sent from Sample Store (I had a clause that I could only review a certain’s brand products when I was representing them as their digital ambassador), that was I started my Lifestyle; Fashion, Beauty & more blog. ๐Ÿ™‚
2. What are 3 of your must-have beauty items?
1. CC Cushion Compact – Laneige or TheFaceShop Sunscreen Cushion (the colour matches my skin to a T)
2. Lip Balm – Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour
3. Lipstick – current favourites include MAC’s Huggable collection, Etudehouse’s Liquid Lips, L’Oreal’s Colour Riche and Laneige Duo Colour Lip bar.
3. What are 3 of your must-have skincare items?
1. Kose Sun Protect Essence Gel
2. Bioderma Sensibio Makeup Remover
3. Moisturizer for Day and Night, I use several brands, right now I’m trying out Orbis’ Clear Range M Moisturizer.
4. What is one beauty step you have to take everyday before you leave the house (filling in your brows/your cat-eyes)?
Definitely putting on moisturizer and sunblock. That’s 2 steps, I know. ๐Ÿ˜›
5. What would your dream job be and why?
Business owner, selling products, bringing joy to others and earning money even while I am on my holiday (the business doesn’t stop when I’m travelling)! ๐Ÿ˜€
6. Write down your favourite quote.
-1-timothy-412-dont-let-anyone-look-down-on-you-because-you-are-young-but-set-an-example-for-the-believers-in-speech
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12
I grew up in church reading this from the bible and hearing youth pastors share and encouraging us with this verse. So I grew up believing that nothing; not youth, not inexperience can stopย anyone to be the best they can be. I grew up believing that if a person puts her heart, mind and soul into her goal, she can achieve it. ๐Ÿ™‚
7. Dinner before dessert or Dessert before dinner?
Dessert after dinner for sure!
8. Is there a make up step that you’re completely FAIL at? (hahaha! that would be falsies for me)
I’m not really good with Mascaras and Falsies! I don’t apply them often, so I take super long, 15-30 minutes to put them on.
9. Long hair or short hair?
Currently Long. ๐Ÿ™‚
10. Would you rather lose all of your make up or skincare items?

This is a tough one! I have a lot more makeup products than skincare items, because I usually use up my skincare products as I use them on a almost daily basis, while I use my makeup products on a rotation basis. I will have to go with, I rather lose my skincare items and I will buy the few important products I use on a daily basis. ๐Ÿ˜›

These ladies would likely to have more than 200 blog followers, but do take part in this award tag still! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hollywood Glamour with Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Smokey Eyeshadow Palette

 

Hi Loves!

Do youย ever wonder how you canย ย create Hollywood style smokey eye makeup look for a formal or dinner event and what makeup you should use?

Kirsten Steward’s Red Carpet Smokey Eyes Look

Earlier this year I received a box of love from Net-a-Porter with two beauties from Charlotte Tilbury, namely the Fallen Angel Smokey Eye Palette and the Rock N Kohl Eye Pencil.

Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eye Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil Review 001 Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eye Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil Review 002

Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eyeshadow Palette in Off White/Light Peach, Golden Browns & Black,ย Charlotte Tilbury Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil. Super duper love the cute and precious starry embossed effect on the palette! <3 <3 <3Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eye Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil Review 003

My first look using Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eyeshadow Fallen Angel Palette ย & Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil. I dusted the light peach over my upper eyelids, coloured in the light brown from the inner corners of the eyes, ended off with the dark golden brown and black and drew in the cat eye tips using the eyeliner. I fell in love with this eyeshadow palette’s fine powder yet awesome pigmentation and beautiful colours. With primer and foundation as the base, the Rock & Kohl eyeliner lasted the entire day and didn’t smudge. However on other tries, I realized that if I didn’t have proper primer or foundation, the eye liner will smudge in our humid Singapore weather. I paired it with a bright pink lip colour for a contemporary and feminine look.Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eye Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil Review 004Another look I created withย Charlotte Tilbury Smokey Eyeshadow Fallen Angel Palette ย & Rock & Kohl Eye Pencil for the recent Singapore Fashion Week. This time I upped the dramatic factor by going for a heavier smokey eye effect before drawing in thicker cat eye effect with the eye pencil. Iย used a scarlet red lipstick (Elizabeth Arden’s Scarlet) for a classic look.

Have you any Charlotte Tilbury makeup products that you use and love? Do share in the comments below!

Thank you Net-A-Porter & Directions Group for the products for review.
