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.

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!

YSL Top Secrets Color Correcting Primer, Eye Duo Smoker, Eye Gloss Smudger, The Shock Mascara, Blanc Pur Couture UV Protection

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!

Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Serum & UV Protector

Korean beauty is making huge waves lately, and one of my favourite departmental stores in Singapore has just opened up an entire beauty hall dedicated to Korean brands!  And when it comes to the crème de la crème, there is none as highly coveted as Sulwhasoo.  This is a brand steeped in Asian heritage, and leverages on ancient wisdom to turn Korean medicinal herbs into effective beauty ingredients.  Consistent with the high regard that Asians place on a fair and even skin tone as a standard of beauty, Sulwhasoo has developed a highly popular Snowise Brightening Line, and today I’d like to introduce 2 of their best sellers.

La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum & Transforming Cream SPF30

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.

Origins Mega-Defense SPF45 Advanced UV Defender & Barrier-Boosting Essence Oil

I strongly believe that pollution causes oxidative stress on skin and contribute to pre-mature aging, and so I was excited to try out Origins’ latest skincare franchise – Dr. Weil Mega-Defense!
