Hello 2019! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family and loved ones. My son started primary school yesterday, which is a new milestone for him and a whole new change for the entire household as we all have to adapt to his new schedule. In previous years I’ve made resolutions relating to (buying less) makeup and (doing more) social media, but this year I find my interests straying in a whole new direction. I’d like to commit to living more in the moment, finding new experiences and hopefully having more memorable vacations with my son. I may be back home but my heart and mind are still tethered to that glorious week spent in the Maldives, and in case you hadn’t seen our videos yet, please do subscribe and check out Ezra’s youtube channel here (shameless plug!).
It may seem odd to kick off the year with an empties post, but there is an immense sense of achievement when I am able to properly bin a bunch of products without a sense of waste, and to memorialise them here on my blog. 2019 had seen the launch of many brands in Singapore, not all of them new in the world, but they certainly took their time. There wasn’t anything earth-shatteringly innovative that I’d seen, and personally am feeling a little tired by many brands, with the exception of Chanel which keeps growing stronger with every season. As such, I find it difficult to select “bests” or “worsts” for the year, instead I go back to my staples many of which are perennial favourites as you will find out below.

Whenever I think of fool-proof makeup that lasts and provides complete coverage, I think of Estee Lauder’s famed Double Wear foundation. If you thought that was the last word on the subject, Estee Lauder now ups the ante with a new Maximum Cover Foundation! And as we head into the cooler and drier season ahead, you might also want to check out the new Flawless Hydrating Primer. Read more after the jump!

Happy Monday! The lovely folks at THREE Cosmetics in Singapore sent me a wonderful package last month, and I’ve been waiting to share it with you. THREE Cosmetics is a lifestyle brand from Japan which prides itself on a holistic approach towards beauty and living. The range is almost exclusively sold in Japan, and so it was a major coup when it launched in Singapore last year. I had reviewed several pieces from their makeup line in the past [see here], and am excited to explore their latest base products and several pieces from their Summer 2018 point makeup range.

I love Nudestix for their intuitive-to-use pencil makeup format, and the incredible ability to carry all my makeup needs in a single sleek tin. That means no round cushion nor powder compact, nor messy liquid foundation to clutter up my purse. Now with the Nudies Tinted Blur the dream is finally reality.

My skin has been simply flawless lately (now, if that’s not a boastful statement I don’t know what is!), and it is all thanks to the new La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation! For the first time, La Prairie has incorporated its very exclusive Caviar Water in a start-of-the-art delivery system to create a colour/skincare product to pamper and refine.
