Estee Lauder does not do designer collaborations very often (the last one that comes to mind is the Courrèges Estée Lauder Collection from Summer 2015), and when it chooses to do so, it does it exceedingly well. And this Fall 2016, Estee Lauder has partnered up with the icon of style – Victoria Beckham! It is a succinct and highly curated collection of only 14 items, in a uber luxe packaging that has fans enthralled all over the world. The collection launched in the US and UK 10 days ago, and is mostly soldout within days. Thankfully for us, the collection will be launching here in Singapore and other parts of Asia soon. To help you make up your mind whether to call dips on these covetable pieces, here are the complete swatches of the Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder Makeup Collection!

Beauty you’re It! IT Cosmetics has earned a cult-like following in the US over the past few years; and with the aim of helping women with rosacea and other skin problems achieve beautiful, healthy skin… IT Cosmetics seems like the perfect soulmate for me. When I heard that IT Cosmetics will be launching at Sephora internationally, I knew this brand was going to fly, and if you hadn’t already picked some up for yourself, here is a quick run-down of some of their top sellers!

Pixi Beauty made me squeal like a little girl recently when a box of their latest Multibalms for Cheeks and Lips showed up on my doorstep one day! This was a brand that I had really loved during my college days, and every time I was in a Target store I would spend more time browsing the Pixi shelves than picking out groceries. The clean minimalistic packaging and chic trendy colors were irresistible to me, and very affordably priced for my tight college budget. Ever since I moved back to Singapore, I’ve missed Pixi so terribly much, not just the easy access (because I just realized that Pixi ships internationally!) but also nobody in Asia seems to know much about the brand. So, today I hope to remedy that somewhat, but showing you these amazing Pixi Multibalms for Cheeks and Lips!

Life has been all sorts of crazy lately, and when something comes along that can help simplify my routine, it instantly finds a place in my life. No matter how busy or tired I am though, I always make sure to take care of my sensitive skin, so it is very important to me that the products I use are gentle yet effective. And ever since I tried out Simple Micellar Cleansing Water and Cleansing Wipes, I have been hooked.

I’ve had a relatively bane-free adolescence, and my skin woes thus far had revolved around sensitivity due to dryness, eczema and the occasional zit or two. The last bottle of Mario Badescu Drying Lotion that I bought was from 2014… which gives you idea of how infrequently I needed it. But since the beginning of this year, my skin has taken a dramatic turn. You may have heard me lamenting it on several occasions here in the context of skincare, and I was determined to find the “cause” of the breakouts. It has taken me months to finally admit that those pesky zits that keep popping up and refusing to go away are not just the random hormonal/dietary insurgence, much less the result of inappropriate skincare, but a perpetual state of adult acne. The change in mindset has set me on a course to figuring out how to get things under control, and I am in the midst of rebalancing my skincare routine to learn to live with my adult acne. So, today I would like to share with you 5 basics that have made it into my daily life!
