It seemed that we started the year complaining about the bitter cold, and now it’s swung to extreme heat in the northern hemisphere. Down here in Singapore, we are running at a toasty 34-degrees celcius, but it has been alternating between random thunderstorms and blazing sun. Between running in and out of dehydrating air-conditioned interiors and squeezing in lunchtime barre workout sessions, I’ve had to find skin-friendly means of keeping my foundation intact all day. And my most recent secret weapon is the brand new Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte from It Cosmetics!

Chanel has been seducing us with its nude summer beauty looks for years now, and this Summer 2018 it gets even better than ever! With perfected natural skin, glowy sculpted contours, and a range of eye and lip colours to flatter your skin tone. Say hello to the latest class of Chanel Les Beiges!

It has been awhile since I reviewed any YSL makeup, and it feels to me that the brand has recently renewed its efforts to better engage with its fans. After what seems like a long hiatus, YSL is finally giving us new innovative products, rather than relying on fancy limited edition packaging to drive sales. So, armed with a fistful of new releases, let’s delve back into the world of YSL!

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.
