1. #mygotos tag, as tagged by the lovely @vinvola! #Skincare first:
    1. @aveneusa Eau Thermal #Avene #sunscreen: I wear this almost everyday.
    2. @kiehlssg Ultra Facial #Cream: A really solid #moisturizer for those with dry skin. I like using this since I work in an air-conditioned environment.
    Next, the #makeup:
    1. #Ponds magic #powder: Also a daily use everytime I do my makeup, and it’s really cheap too!
    2. @makeupforeversg #HD #loosepowder: I like to mix some in with my Ponds or whatever loose powder I’m using to control oil and give a nice finish.
    3. @ultabeauty #eyeshadow in Naked: I use this as an all-over wash for my lids. Most light beige shades work, but this has really good pigmentation!
    4. @majolicasg SV821 eyeshadow: I love all my taupe #eyeshadows, so I couldn’t pick one, but this one is on a small and compact packaging so I do travel around with it too :)
    5-8: I really couldn’t pick a #goto #blush, so I just picked three neutral go-with-everything #blushes that I reach for: @chanel official #jouescontrast in rose dust, @maccosmetics Blushbaby #blusher, and @makeupforeverofficial HD #creamblush in 220, a new favourite!
    9-12. My #eyeliners! My favourite #eyeliner brands are #mufe and @urbandecaycosmetics. I reach for my brown and purples the most, so here they are: #makeupforever’s 25L, #urbandecay’s Rockstar and bourbon. Tagging @ma_jacqueline @samanthashley_ and @fenztastic to play too if you haven’t been tagged yet! :) #clozette

     
  2. One of the #cute #beauty #products in my @etudehousesingapore #haul: this #minniemouse #powder #blush! It’s called the #minnie touch #blusher, and looks super purple but on me it looks more like a warm pink. (I guess I brush from the center so I pick up more peach.) Isn’t it just so #sweet? #clozette

     
  3. Little round pots of #pretty: @BourjoisParis #blushes in 32 Ambre D’Or, 33 Lila’s D’Or, and 34 Rose D’Or. I keep reading that this #blusher is a dupes for the famed Chanel Joues Contrast #blush, since #Bourjois owns Chanel, and I’ve also seen comparisons on other blogs that seemed like there were a couple of dupes colour-wise (although I feel like the quality isn’t quite the same). Regardless, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for these little pots, and these are great #blushers that don’t break the bank! #clozette

     
  4. Here’s a quick comparison of my #hakuhodo #blush #brush against other similarly sized/shaped #brushes in my stash, from top down:
    1. @thebodyshopsg #blushbrush - this has synthetic bristles only, vs hakuhodo’s blue squirrel and synthetic mix. Brush head is larger, and bristles are of the same length, but more dense.
    2. My new baby, the Hakuhodo #makeupbrush! Definitely the softest of the lot. The brush I bought, the #Kokutan #Blusher S (H2282) is the smallest #blushbrush I own. It fits very nicely into the cheek area, and its softness, together with the fact that the #bristles aren’t too densely packed together, means that I can use this for both pigmented and less pigmented blushes alike since it’s great at blending. Also can do double duty as a highlighter brush for cheeks/forehead/chin due to its size.
    3. #Realtechniques #blusherbrush - this has the largest brush head, and exactly covers all my cheek area in one swipe. Thankfully, the bristles are fluffed out nicely end not too densely packed. So it doesn’t leave me with clown cheeks! Both my #thebodyshop and Real Techniques #makeupbrushes are stiffer than my hakuhodo.

     
  5. My #motd! #GiorgioArmani #eyeshadow #quad in 03 Pantelleria for a pop of colour, @lancomesg nude #blusher, the #Blush Subtil in Miel Glacé, and @maccosmetics #lipgloss, their #lipglass in Love Nectar. Been so long since I wore eyeshadow to work :) #clozette

     
  6. Tagged by the beautiful, kind, sweet and talented @eldiona to show a #valentinesday look, but I haven’t had time yet so I will show you my favourite #makeup and #beauty #products for a clean natural look.
    1⃣ @bobbibrown blushed rose pot rouge: cream #blush that’s a very natural, universally-flattering shade
    2⃣ @chanel rose dust #joulescontrast - I keep getting compliments everytime I wear this #blusher, so it most be doing something right! It inspired me to get a second #chanel JC but the second one can’t compare to this.
    3⃣ @benefitcosmeticssg Rockateur - I sometimes wear this on its own, but other times I wear it like a #higlighter over my #blushes. Works either way!
    And two bonus #nailpolishes:
    4⃣ @opi_products princesses rule! - I just like the name, and I think it’s appropriate for #vday lol
    5⃣ @revlon sparkling - hopefully what everyone’s #valentines will be :)

  7. As usual on #throwbackthursdays, here’s another glimpse into my #makeup-hoarding #stash, lol. Today’s #tbt features my old-school @wetnwildbeauty #blushes! There are three #blush colours here (L-R):

    1. Pearlescent #Pink, which is actually a peachy-pink. Similar to the famous NARS Orgasm in that it’s the same colour family, but the #wetnwild version is more pink.
    2. Berry Shimmer, which is a berry-coloured blush. This is cooler and more purple than NARS Outlaw. So not a dupe, but also a pretty colour nonetheless.
    3. Heather Silk - this is apparently a #dupe for NARS Mata Hari. I’ve never actually owned Mata Hari so I can’t confirm this (let me know if you own both!), but swatches I’ve seen seem to indicate that they’re pretty similar. Anyway, dupe or not, I always love finding high-quality #drugstore #makeup with comparable #color range as compare to the more expensive brands!

    Quality of these #blushers are surprisingly good - pigmentation is excellent, #colour range is nice, and I get compliments wearing this. People actually ask me what brand I’m wearing, and seem so surprised to find that it’s none other than #wetnwildbeauty. So yay for awesome and cheap #beauty #products! The only gripe I have is that this version of the packaging is hard to travel with; as you can see, there’s a crack in my Heather Silk. *sniff* Thank goodness the newer packaging is less flimsy!

  10. My #beauty-related #tbt that sheds light on how embarrassingly long I’ve been a #makeup hoarder: @cargocosmetics #blushes that are no longer available! Yes, these are #discontinued #blush colours: Lyon (left), a #rose-#plum shade, and Polynesia (right), a shimmery #pink #peach. I love both shades, and am glad to have them, but I suppose this shows either how long I’ve been hoarding makeup, or how often companies discontinue perfectly good colours, lol.
