1. New #blogpost on #parabens in #cosmetics - I’m sure you have seen this #ingredient in your products, and have heard they hype about them. I know I’m supposed to be doing my #omysba2014 blogposts and other stuff, but I just couldn’t help being a #beauty geek haha. Anyway I take a look at some of the claims I’ve been seeing about parabens (eg they cause cancer, they are banned in Europe and Japan, and so on) and look at whether these claims have any science to back them up. (Warning: it’s a pretty long post.) #clozette

     
  2. Just a few (not all!) of my favourite @etudehousesingapore #makeup #products! #etudehouse really has quite a few #pretty #cosmetics, including #lipgloss, #lipstick, #eyeshadow #palettes, #highlighter, #lipbalm, and of course #bbcushion! And just so you don’t say I didn’t warn you: *HINT HINT* there will be a #giveaway for one of these items pictured here really really soon on my blog! So keep a look out if you’re interested! :) #clozette

     
  3. #Beauty #products in my #stash: @BarryMCosmetics #DazzleDust in 89 Oyster Grey and 51 Mushroom. I love #barrym, a lot of their #cosmetics are both cheap and good. Both #dazzledusts are gorgeous #taupes, I use them as #eyeshadow. They’re in really small pots so I keep forgetting to include them in my stash pics, do now they have a photo all to themselves! #clozette

     
  4. Peek and impromptu of items in my #cosmetics #stash: some of my favourite @beccacosmetics #makeup and #beauty #products, the #creme #blush! #Beccacosmetics has great #cremeblush, very nice wearable colours and soft textures. These are a lot softer than the Bobbi Brown or Stila type of #creamblush, but more moist than Chanel’s or MUFE’s. So I’d say similar in moistness to the more traditional Bobbi Brown/Stila type, but has the softness of the Chanel and MUFE ones. I love mine, the only downside is that because the texture is so soft, after a few uses it starts looking gross because every nick, dent, an dip gets imprinted on the #blush quite deeply (as you can see from this photo - although to be fair mine are well used). But these are really great quality #blushes! Maybe my only gripe is the packaging - I’m not a fan of the NARS-style rubberized compacts and the heavy lids (I like the mirrors though!). The colours I have are Wild Orchid, Amaryllis, and Frangipani. #clozette

     
  5. My #motd, showing the colour #cosmetics I used:
    1. @stilacosmetics Bud #Blush (top left in the Stila palette), applied with my #Hakuhodo Kokutan Blush #Brush S - oh yeah, old-school #Stila, and one of my faves!
    2. @maccosmetics Vapour #eyeshadow, applied with my Stila Brush No. 5
    3. @urbandecaycosmetics YDK Eyeshadow, applied with and blended out with my Stila Brush No. 7 - most perfect mix of taupe, bronze, and a hint of purple. Love this!
    4. #UrbanDecay Bourbon 24/7 #eyeliner - one of my favourite pencil eyeliner brands!
    5. @covergirl Blushberry Trushine #lipstick - this has been discontinued so I’m depleting all my backups now. *sniff* #clozette

     
  6. Happy weekend everyone! After yesterday’s blurry pic, here’s a much-clearer #photo of the @etudehousesingapore Play Color Eyes #Eyeshadow #Palettes in 1 So Hot Play (left) and 2 So Chic Play (right). The #eyeshadows in each #palette vary in type, some are smooth mattes and shimmers, others are metallic-like shadows that look like they would be awesome foiled.

  7. The perfect #valentinesday #gift from @etudehousesingapore: came home to the Play Color Eyes #Eyeshadow #Palettes in 1 So Hot Play (back) and 2 So Chic Play (front). Oh my, I can’t decide which #palette I love more, both have such lovely #eyeshadows, and a mix of mattes and metallics! Sorry for the #photo quality (you know how it is taking photos under room light at 1030pm), I promise I will get more photos of the palettes tomorrow!

  9. On the #blog: my #swatches of @chanelofficial’s Le Cream #Blush de #Chanel. These #blushes come in a range of beautifully wearable yet unique colours. The #creamblush texture is quite smooth and silky in a way that is reminiscent of silicones, and blends gorgeously. I think #chanelbeauty really nailed these #blushers!

  10. Happy #chinesenewyear everyone! Hope your #cny2014 visiting is going well! Wishing all of you 恭喜发财, 万事如意! My #cny #red #lipstick this year is going to be @lauramerciersg Creme Smooth #LipColor in Fresh Raspberry - it’s not exactly fire engine red, it’s more like a #pink-#rose shade with some red thrown in, so it’s festive without being too OTT for conservative relatives!
