Empties Vol. 5: Life Updates & Beauty Stories

The first quarter of the year is over in a blink, and now we are accelerating right into summer.  2018 has been a very productive start for me in many aspects of my life, though the ride has been bumpy with several members of my family falling severely ill.  Nonetheless many seeds that were sowed last year are starting to germinate and take hold, so I’m looking forward to a fruitful harvest.  On the beauty side of things, many of the brands that were once so elusive are now launching in Singapore – be sure to follow me on Instagram [@silverkis] to catch my stories on the latest launch parties!  Not everything shiny and new are the best though, I discovered several HG products that I am going to share with you today.

Kanebo’s latest skincare range reverses the signs of aging

Kanebo completely revamped its product line last year, including both makeup and skincare.  The entire brand philosophy now revolves around the concept of Chrono Beauty, changing rhythm of the body and skin at different times of the day and year.  By understanding how the skin condition has evolved, Kanebo believes we can reduce the signs of aging and mature gracefully by taking proper care accordingly.  The skincare range is rather extensive, but today, I’d like to give you a peek at a few specialized items that were recently launched to address concerns of sagging and wrinkling.

Last Empties Post of the Year… Vol. 4

It’s been an amazing year in many ways, and I hope you’ve enjoyed all the product reviews or introductions here on the blog.  Reality is, it takes much more time to write a skincare/bodycare/haircare review than makeup.  On the other hand, I think it is far easier to get through those products, and so I’ve taken to documenting my empties to better speak to my fondness of some of these stuff that never makes it to the blog.  There are way too many to go into detail here, so please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below!

Empties Vol. 3: August – September 2017

We are counting down to the final months of this year… isn’t it unbelievable?  Work has been insane lately, because of course, all the transactions have to drop at the same time.  It’s definitely been a very productive couple of months, and I’m excited to share this bumper crop of #empties.

First Ever Empties Post!! And it’s a bumper crop for April-May 2017!

Hello hello!!  Today’s post is a first of its kind here on Silverkis’ World… It started out with a resolution to make a dent in my ever-growing pile  of products, and then I thought it’d be cool to document my progress monthly.  There is a huge sense of satisfaction in amassing these empties and then photographing them for posterity.  And then when thumb-icitis starts to become a real threat as I struggle to pen down my final words on each of these products, I figured it was time to type them on a proper keyboard instead.  Where better to type them all down, than on the blog!  This is not meant to be actual reviews, but really just my own personal thoughts.  I hope to be as succinct as possible, the first things that come to mind as I view each one of them, and then I’ll link up full reviews where I have them.  Hopefully this will be a fun read for you, and grow into a real series over time!
