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!

I am fast becoming a convert of La Prairie products, not merely because they are so luxe (oh that they are!), nor the gorgeous packaging… but the products that I have tried so far seem to bridge both realms of skincare and makeup perfectly. When you are spending a pretty penny, it helps to know that the skincare goes to work deep inside for the long-run whilst still making you look instantly prettier. Likewise, makeup with actual accountable skincare ingredients does make a difference in this over-crowded market! I have been testing out 2 new additions to the La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal collection, and would like to introduce them to you today.

We are quickly moving to Fall colour collections, but there are a couple of Summer makeup items from By Terry that I wanted to showcase. The key attraction of the collection is of course the stunning Sun Designer Palette which is available in 2 colour combinations, and I had reviewed Tan & Flash Cruise here. That is a stunning blush/highlight/bronze palette and I highly recommend you check it out before it is too late. In addition, By Terry has released a few fun coloured eyeliners and a new sheer colour lip balm, both of which I’d like to show you today.

Since then, technology has really moved things along, and with more brands getting their cushion game on, there are real innovations and much more choices! And to get things started, I’d like to share with you Biotherm’s latest foray into colour makeup – Evermoist C.C. Cushion!

I have not been the biggest proponent for cushion foundations for the past few years, but I feel the industry has improved the formulation to a point where I find myself embracing them with open arms. And my latest obsession is Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Pearl Aura, probably the first base product that have me determined to use up asap!

If you’ve been following makeup trends for some time now, eventually you might grow weary of claims of greatness. For a base makeup junkie like me, who has less than perfect skin, I’ve come to realise that fancy labels and expensive branding does not necessary translate into great makeup. The ultimate vindication comes when my mother-in-law tells me my skin is looking flawless recently. Ladies, this is the same woman who did not think to filter her words before telling me that I am FAT the day after I gave birth to her 1st grandson. So, I believe a talking mirror could not utter greater truths than this woman. And the secret to my seemingly flawless skin was Anna Sui’s Illuminating BB Cream and Loose Face Powder N.
