  3. Tagged by @paradeoflove to show you my hot weather #makeup and #beauty #musthaves. So here we go!
    ❶ #oilcontrol #products are a must for me in hotter weather - this is the ONE thing I always need to have. I love @makeupforeversg #hdpowder (which all of you already know), and like both the pressed and loose #powder versions. You see this often in my MOTDs too!
    ❷ #longlasting #eyeliner: the first thing to slide on me, makeup-wise is always eyeliner. One of the most waterproof and sweat prof liners I’ve tried is again from #mufe - their Aqua Liner is really quite good
    ❸ #liptint - I know all of you have seen me Instagram the @etudehousesingapore liptint so many times you want to smack me, so in addition to the #etudehouse one, here’s a #peripera one too! I’ve found #liptints and #lipstains to be of varying quality - some have better lasting power than others, but the good ones should last for a decent amount of time once set
    ❹ #coral #blush: ok, so #blusher is more of a colour preference than a hot weather must-have, but I find I tend to reach for my corals and warmer shades when the weather is hot. I like @benefitcosmeticssg Coralista, and Bella Bamba is also something I can wear that is pink with warmth. And of course #mufesg’s HD #creamblush in 410 which is a bright coral.
    ❺ #bright #lipcolor: the coral preference also extends to my lips, but I do wear other bright shades on lips too - I always feel like brighter shades suit warmer weather. Most of the liptints I have are pretty bright (most Korean brands have bright lipcolors) but additionally my favourite coral of the summer is @clinique_us Chubby Stick in Hefty Hibiscus. It’s bright but I do get compliments wearing it! #clozette

     
  4. My lazy Sunday #lunch at @selfishgenecafe totally demanded a #foodporn #photo - had the #Waffle #Brekkie: waffle with #scrambled #eggs, #grilled #sausage, #butter and #syrup. Was #yummy! I’ve been feeling quite tired and not motivated to blog because work has been busy for the past few months (as everyone whose emails I’ve not had the time/brains to answer yet will know!) so I’m happy for the weekend and the public holiday to recharge! :) I know I owe some people things, I’ll get around to you soon!

     
  5. #VitaminC #skincare #products! I’ve always been a big fan of #Vitamin C, because it’s one of the ingredients that’s effective and actually has the science to back it up! It’s great as a #brightener (so you’ll find it in tons of #whitening products) and as an #antioxidant, and helps with skin turnover (so you’ll find it in some #antiaging products too). The only downside? It’s quite hard to find products that have effective amounts of Vitamin C, and some forms of Vitamin C (like Ascorbic acid, for example) are notoriously unstable and thus need to be packaged properly (no jars etc). So with that in mind, here are some of my picks that I think are efficacious and properly packaged and easily available on the market!
    ❶ @kiehlssg Powerful Strength #LineReducing #Concentrate - this has 10.5% Ascorbic acid, and is properly packaged in a dark brown bottle with a pump! IMHO this is one of the too easy-to-get properly package Ascorbic acid #serum products out on the market (and this wasn’t actually sent for review, I actually got it on my own)
    ❷ #Chamos #Acaci Vita-C #Powder - this is actually pure #ascorbicacid in powder form, and you can either add it to distilled water for a vitamin c serum or add it to your moisturizer. I like that I can control how much I use and the powder ensures that the Ascorbic acid won’t oxidize before I even use it!
    ❸ @beautydirectsg #Juju #Aquamoist Whitening C #serum - has Ascorbyl Glucoside, a stable form of Vitamin C, as one of the top 5 ingredients
    ❹ #beautydirectsg Juju Aquamoist Whitening C Cream - this has Ascorbyl Glucoside, which although isn’t as effective as straight up Ascorbic acid, is stable when in a jar. #clozette #beauty

     
  6. New #skincare #products to review soon: the @elizabetharden #flawlessfuture #ceramide caplet #serum and Flawless Future #eyegel! These are from @ardencanada’s new #antiaging range and all super lightweight and are targeting women seeing the first signs of aging. #beauty #clozette

     
  7. Happy weekend everyone! Tagged by @redrubymaya to show the last best #makeup and #beauty thing I bought, but actually it’s more like last best things I bought, lol! Best part is, all of this #shopping was done during #sales!
    ➊ @rougebunnyrouge #eyeshadow in Abyssinian Catbird - super pretty olive!
    ➋ @etudehousesingapore Color Pop Shine #Tint - you guys know how much I like this #liptint already, so won’t belabor the point
    ➌ @zoevacosmetics Luxe Face Definer 100 - I bought this after I bought the 101 #brush and liked it - they’re quite value-for-money, which is always a plus!
    ➍ @sigmabeauty #brushes - I bought the Large Angled #Contour F40 which is actually quite small, more like a blush brush size, and the Large Powder F30 which is gorgeous
    ➎ Finally, some #skincare! This is the #AlphaHydrox #Retinol ResQ #facecream - the only one I didn’t #haul on sale, but even at full price it’s probably one of the best value-for-money, properly packaged, non-prescription #retinoids you can get right now! #clozette

     
  8. Some really cute #minis and #samples I have in my stash! Featuring cute @benefitcosmeticssg Ooh La Lift #Primer and High Beam #Highlighter, Creaseless Cream #Eyeshadow, and @bobbibrown #PotRouge in teeny little pots! #clozette

     
  9. Lovely new #skincare #products from @elizabetharden: The #FlawlessFuture range, which targets women in their late 20s who have the first signs of aging. The products include the #Ceramide #MoistureCream (#moisturizer), the Ceramide Moisture Cream SPF30, the Ceramide #EyeGel, and the #Ceramide #Caplet #Serum. Every one of these products feels light and silky on the skin. Can’t wait to try and review these! #clozette #omysba2014 #beauty

     
  10. If you haven’t seen it yet, my first #omysba2014 #blogpost is up! I actually attempt to curl my hair for the first time ever with a #panasonic #hairstyler and actually rock a different hairstyle for once! #clozette #beauty #Blogpost is here: http://blog.omy.sg/sba-plus/2014/07/21/attempting-to-curl-my-hair-for-the-first-time-with-panasonic-hair-styler/
