Cosme Decorte Makes You Bloom SS2018

I have been incredibly time-strapped lately… work has been keeping me up late at night, and I cannot seem to find the time to blog.  Increasingly, I am tempted to move more of my sharing and reviews to Instagram.  Since many of you are also spending more time on Instagram, please let me know what you think in the comments below!

Regardless, there are always some collections (especially makeup) that I think deserve their place in history, for which I will always try to make it a point to share them in greater depth here.  I love sharing beautiful pieces with you, and showing & describing swatches with you and make up looks.  Especially when they are as lovely as the new Cosme Decorte AQMW point makeup this season!

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.

By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush Double Effect Mascara

Are you blessed with naturally long, luscious, fluttery lashes?  I wished I was, but sadly mine are quite the opposite.  They are of ok-length, I think, but stick-straight and downward pointing.  My heavily hooded lids and oily undereye complicate things further, smudging even the most “waterproof” of mascaras.  To get my lashes looking presentable, I use as many as 3 different products on a daily basis to prime, volumnize/lengthen, and set.  So imagine my pleasure when I discovered the 1 mascara to rule them all – By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush Double Effect Mascara!

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!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Foundation & Pure Color Envy Lash Multi Effects Mascara

Estee Lauder’s Double Wear foundation has been well loved by generations of women before us, and it often gives me a thrill to know that girls are sharing a secret makeup weapon with their moms.  If ever you needed a full coverage foundation that can be relied upon to stay on all day, you would probably have reached for Estee Lauder Double Wear.  The line has seen several extensions over the past few years, and today we are celebrating a completely fresh take on the famed Double Wear… Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup!

Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Fall 2017

I have been on the road for almost 2 weeks now, and I had originally hoped to find time in the evenings or weekend to do some writing, but it has been an exhausting trip so far.  I was glad to have been able to take a peek at the second Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Collection before I left, and had the chance to play around with a select few pieces… so here are my thoughts!
