Sephora Singapore Trend Report 2016: Ready, Get Nude, ACTION!

By | Base, beauty, Concealer, Eyes, Eyeshadow, Face, Make Up | 2 Comments

Happy New Nude Year, you guys!

I know right, it’s been so long since I’ve blogged beauty. It’s a little late, but these products are pretty evergreen, and it’s probably one of my favorite Sephora loot to date!

Packed with products to make you look all primed and glowing… presenting:

#SEPHORANUDEACTION

Saying that I’ve received a ton of stuff in my mail is an understatement – everything looked so interesting that I couldn’t wait to try everything out! (I practically made myself go out everyday just so that I can put some makeup on, hahaha)

The Radiance Enhancing Pro Prime Light Optmizing Primer comes in white and contains a very sheer and fine amount of shimmer.

The Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (in Alaska 02) was runny and seems to be best applied with fingers! I tried using a brush and it didn’t give me as much coverage as using fingers. This comes with SPF 30PA+++ and the combination of both the primer and this tinted moisturizer made it feel like there were too much on my skin – I had to tissue blot it before applying powder.

NARS’ radiant creamy concealer is one of my favorite – especially Custard, because it’s perfect for my under eye circles. It spreads extremely well as it’s pretty emollient.

They may look pretty yellow on my arm but it works extremely well at correcting the redness on my face! I guess this was an acceptable shade for me – I’m pretty amazed by the shade selection by the Sephora marketing team! So far it’s been spot on!sephora-singapore-nude-action-jan-2016-evonnz-25

Marc Jacobs Beauty's Invisible Undercover - Perfecting Coconut Face Primer comes in a matte glass bottle and its a joy to hold! The coconut smell is pretty strong to me - and that's because it's made from 5 kinds of coconut! "The coconut water-derived polysaccharide complex mirrors the effect of synthetic priming ingredients, allowing your skin to breathe without compromising the skin-perfecting benefits." This nourishing primer ensures smooth application of makeup over it!

After a month or so of trying out all these products, I’ve naturally selected a few favorites – basically things that I’ve been reaching out for very often the past month, and that would be the Burberry Face Contour Pen, the Sephora eyeshadow palette and the NARS concealer in Custard!

The colors on the eyeshadows are too pretty to be missed, and blends so well on my eye socket – it defines my eye area well, and doesn’t easily end up making anyone looking like a racoon. Basically it’s an easy to use, everyday palette. Score!

Burberry’s Face Contour Pen is just SO easy to use on the go. You don’t need a brush when you’re on the go – just this pen, and your fingers. You can contour your nose bridge easily with this, and in fact can be used on the eyes as well! Here’s a video from Burberry for demonstration:

The NARS powder and the creamy radiant concealer have been favorites of mine since I’ve come across them, so no surprises or new notes there. I’ll be back soon with more updates on the latest cushion foundations that have been popping up EVERYWHERE… Till then!

Basic Makeup Routine [ Dec 2014 ]

By | Base, beauty, Blush, Concealer, eyeliner, Eyes, Face, Make Up | No Comments

Every time I see a question that goes along the lines of “if you could only use one make up product what would you use?” I roll my eyes.

Honey, unless you’re EXTREMELY BLESSED, you’ll need at least 2 things to look good. Or in my case, 7.

This is my basic make up routine. I need to finish all these points before I can feel ready to face the world:

  1. Base – Concealer & Foundation
  2. Contour
  3. Brows
  4. Eyeliner
  5. Blush
  6. Mascara
  7. Lips (this one I sometimes only do it when I get to the car heh)

I know, that’s actually a LOT. But miss one out and I’ll feel incomplete and awkward throughout the day! Thats why I have an emergency kit in the car for touch ups or when I forget something while rushing out.

Sharing with you guys my most often reached for products and faves for all these steps!

{ Concealer & Foundation }

I can’t go without this. I can skip base, but concealer is though especially since it takes some time for the acne scars to fade away. Doesn’t help that I popped a huge zit out on my chin recently…

So suffice to say, I'm a huge fan of concealers. My favorites here are for EITHER the under eye or the scars - it's very hard for me to find something that can work on both my zits/PIH AND my undereye because they require different tones.

So suffice to say, I’m a huge fan of concealers. My favorites here are for EITHER the under eye or the scars – it’s very hard for me to find something that can work on both my zits/PIH AND my undereye because they require different tones.

  • YSL Touche Eclat 2.5 (color corrects my under eye area)
  • Amazing Concealer in Light Golden (best for my under eye)
  • Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer in 2 (for spots)
  • Lancome Le Correcteur Pro in 200 W Buff (a comprehensive kit for the under eye with a corrector AND concealer AND seetting powder)
  • Make Up For Ever Full Cover in 4 (awesome for spots cos it matches my skin tone 100%)
  • Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer (waterproof!!! long lasting)
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(marc)able Concealer in shade 3 Young
  • Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (02 to correct under eye and 04 to conceal!)

The Kevyn Aucoin one is by far one of my favorites as it’s really multipurpose -it contains honey and jojoba oil, and can go from sheer to full coverage by simply mixing it with moisturizer or using it on its own. It completely covers my spots AND under eye concealer and it’s the only one that can do that – however, I need to mix both shade 02 and 04 to get a proper match as a foundation. So that’s a bummer as it’s 38 pounds EACH.

Before & After concealing. In here, I used: MJB Re(marc)able for the PIH marks, MUFE Full Cover for the zit and Amazing Concealer for the under eye.

Before & After concealing + base (Laneige BB Cushion). In here, I used: MJB Re(marc)able for the PIH marks and redness, MUFE Full Cover for the zit and Amazing Concealer for the under eye.

These days I’ve been reaching out for cushions more often as I’m lazy to wash brushes – and the Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control has been my favorite to reach out for! I love how it doesn’t leave me too shiny, and the color seems to be better than the non Pore Control one so… yup. My choice these days! I usually apply concealer beneath bb cushion, and if I’m using liquid foundation, concealer comes later.

{ Contour }

The Laneige BB Cushion does leave me a little flat and whiter than usual, so contouring is a must. Actually I’ve been becoming a bigger fan of contouring after trying out Charlotte Tilbury’s contour and highlight palette and bought quite a few to try!

  • Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons in 00 Nude
  • Suratt Artistique Blush in Aureole (highlighter) and Grisalle (the darker taupe for contouring)
  • Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (the left column: Fawn, Java, Havana)

{ Brows }

Previously I didn’t see the need for eyebrow embroidery but after I’ve done it, I realized that it helps keep my brow shape in check and also makes it easier to draw! I still fill out my brows but on the days that I have no make up on, it still looks better than before I did embroidery.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Some of my favorite brow products – my brow products are always changing due to my hair color changes. These days I have dark hair so I do try to go a bit darker… but not overly dark, lah.

  • Tarte The Brow Architect (double ended – sword cut on one end and a brush on the other which I find most useful!)
  • Shu Uemura Hard Formula Brow Pencil in Walnut (I use Seal Grey more often)
  • Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow in Light / Medium (has a mascara brush)
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe (used with a brush)

Here’s a little gif animation of how I draw my brows:

{ Eyeliner }

Ahhh another favorite! Eyeliner colors makes my heart skip a beat more than eyeshadow colors sometimes, haha! But for a basic, clean look, these are what I like to use:

My army of go-to black and browns

My army of go-to black and browns

  • Bobbi Brown Pot Eyeliner
  • Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner in Black Amethyst (it’s a pencil on one end and a smuder on the other)
  • M.A.C Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline (this one is LE Prabal Gurung Collection)
  • Charlotte Tilbury Rock & Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil in Barbarella Brown
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Demolition (brown) / Zero (black)
  • Heroine Make Impact Frame Eyeliner
  • Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner
  • Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner

It was really hard to pick a favorite – Charlotte Tilbury wins for how easy it is to glide across the lid even after almost a year, and how long lasting it is for me – there’s another one I love even more, it’s from  THREE but it has glitter spam in it so I don’t like to use it on the rims of my eye. Then again, eyeliner doesn’t usually smudge on me (even if it does it’s a negligible bit).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These days I like using pencils more as my eyes look different without lenses (after doing ReLEx SMILE, a kind of LASIK) and I tend to line the rims of my eyes more. On the days I don’t feel like it, I use liquid liners! Eyeko Eyedo has a fat flexible nib which is super easy to control, so it goes into my favorites list!

{ Mascara }

When I don’t have my eyelash extensions on, I use mascara. And oh how I LOVE mascaras! Unfortunately I go through them VERY quickly (replace every 3-4 months) so I don’t have a compilation to show you, but my favorites are:

  • Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara (SUPER waterproof)
  • Tarte Lights, Camera Flashes Mascara (Love how buildable it is!)
  • Lancome Le Extreme Waterproof (My first love)
  • Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara (Great Volume!)
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara
Without Mascara (but curled)

With Tarte's Lights! Camera! Flashes! Mascara applied over (2 coats)

{ Lips }

My lips… are extremely troublesome! Although it’s pretty thick, it’s darkened on the upper lip and always cracking at the bottom lip. -_-” And that’s why I usually favor lipbalms with color because they make me look less poisoned or like a smoker. (I don’t smoke!)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Korres Lip Butter in Quince
  • Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip & Cheek Balm
  • Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Balm (mini)
  • Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 52 Fetiche
  • Ettusais Lip Essence (melty bar) (no color but SUPER moisturizing!)

I love lip balms that don’t detach easily and FRESH is like a double confirm because of the screw cap! This mini is from their holiday collection and it’s SOOOO CUTE!!! And portable too! The Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Lip Balm can be used on the cheeks BUT i never do that. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 54 Fetiche is not a balm, but pretty moisturizing and the color is different from a tint AND suit me perfectly. I love it on me.

A FOTD to end the post – this was just before my gigantic pimple popped out. T_T I’m sorry, I won’t eat cheesecake anymore!

4 Steps to a Flawless Face with Laura Mercier (Part 2 – Light – Medium Coverage for already good skin)

By | Base, beauty, Concealer, FOTD, Make Up | One Comment

I wasn’t gonna disappear when I said I’ll show you part 2 – if you still remember my part 1 / routine 1, which was for oily skin / matte finish, this time round I’m back with something for people with normal, good skin (lucky you!).

So to begin, here’s what I use for routine 2, when I’m out for a short while or when my skin’s feeling a little better and less oily. 

Routine 2:
(You don’t need to use everything, they can be mixed / swapped) 

  • Foundation Primer Protect (contains SPF 30) / Foundation Primer Oil-free
  • Tinted Moisturizer (skip this if you have SUPER DUPER good skin)
  • Secret Camouflage in SC-4 & High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye in #2
  • Secret Brightening Powder in #1
  • Smooth Finish Foundation Powder (optional / can swap with translucent loose setting powder)
  • Loose Setting Powder in Translucent (optional / can swap with smooth finish foundation powder)

Note:

If you have super duper good skin, you can actually get away with just the foundation primer + tinted moisturizer + loose setting powder.

For slightly more coverage, foundation primer + smooth finish foundation powder is sufficient because the smooth finish powder has pretty good coverage and can be used wet for more opacity!

Here are some arm swatches of the shades available and offered at Laura Mercier Singapore’s counters!

laura-mercier-evonnz-smooth-finish-foundation-powder-shades-swatches-1

Now you know what I mean about Laura Mercier’s products being super customizable no matter what skin type or tone you are… let’s move on to my face of the day with LM products!

You start first with a primer, of course! It preps the perfect canvas for make up. I'm using oil-free SPF 20 version, but if you don't have oily skin you can opt for the original spf 20, or if you have dull skin, try out the illuminating primer!

I’m going for higher coverage, so I’m using primer + tinted moisturizer + smooth finish powder!

I really, really like the smooth finish powder. It’s in a compact form and comes with a super soft sponge – super easy to bring along wherever you’re going for touch ups! I like how it gives me velvety smooth skin after using it and the powder’s just so fine – it does give me some oil control, and the fine powder creates a diffused finish which gives you a really soft look.

You can use it wet too – simply mist your sponge and swipe it through the compact! This gives you more coverage than just using it dry, which is great if you’re having a little blemish trouble that day.

Do spend some time swatching/matching a shade suitable for your skin though – it is best to have try on your face for at least 2 hours, because I realize that it does oxidize on me after 2 hours so I picked a lighter shade.

I use it as a setting/finishing powder, but if you think it’s too heavy or too much coverage (I’m presuming you have super good skin), then go ahead and replace it with the translucent loose setting powder!

And after some make up…

There you have it! A natural, flawless finish (sorry 3d zit’s a bit difficult to conceal). Hop down to Laura Mercier counters today to find out what’s suitable for you and walk away with a flawless face.

Laura Mercier’s products have offered me a fail-proof solution for make up that last all day (my routine 1) and I hope you find something that works for you too!

Shiseido The Makeup Spring 2014

By | beauty, Blush, Concealer, Eyes, Eyeshadow, Face, Lips, Make Up | 5 Comments

Of all the things I get to review, I love make up most. And nothing makes us girls happier than playing with make up and swatching away at an event. Okay, sometimes good food makes us happiest but that’s beside the point!

This time round my very siao-on fellow beauty blogger Candice and I have both joined forces (arms, actually) to bring you a collection of swatches from Shiseiso’s Spring 2014 collection! Lotsa wiping involved and red arms thereafter, but still very much enjoyed ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the colors! ; )

product-1

Spring 2014’s releases from Shiseido:

  • Lacquer Gloss in 8 colors (New)
  • Sheer Eye Zone Correcter in 6 shades (New)
  • Face Color Enchanting  Trio in 4 shades (New)
  • Shimmering Cream Eye Colors in 8 new shades
  • Lacquer Rouge in 7 new colors (didn’t swatch, sigh)

Whoop! Quite the bumper release, if I may say so!

The lacquer glosses are gorgeous! I especially love the purples.

 Shiseido Lacquer Gloss, SGD $39

Lip Gloss inspired by traditional Japanese transparent lacquer. Sheen with a complex transparency, as though multiple layers have been applied. Creates beautiful lips with appealing, clear color and a dewy smooth feel.

 Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color, SGD $32

Dewy-textured cream eye color that accents your eyes with shimmering light, making them sparkle with life. Vivid color and radiant shine last all day without creasing or fading. 8 New shades.

I love the non-creasing texture of this shimmering cream eye shadow – it may be seem a little daunting for some because it isn’t your usual powder, but this just stays on so well! Yuba is a color really worth trying out – I saw Suhaini (Shiseido MUA) apply it on Tricia (click for pic) and she looked like a bronzed goddess!

 Shiseido Face Color Enchanting Trio, SGD $53

Here’s a little guide on how to use the trio (taken from asia.shiseido.com)

 Sheer Eye Zone Corrector, SGD $45

A sheer corrector that evens the skin tone and provides a healthy, glowing finish under the eyes that lasts all day. Skin maintains moisture all day long, due to Shiseido's exclusive Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE.

Shiseido scientists have discovered that dark circles are caused because the skin under the eyes has fewer yellow and red color pigments than the cheek area.

Solution:
Orange-colored Net Base adds the yellow and red pigments that dark circles lack and transmits light to create reflection from the natural bare skin, which gives it an even tone. Under eye circles become invisible and the area takes on a sheer, natural glow.

Reflect and Fit Powder generates complementary colors (green, blue and white) to thoroughly neutralize major skin tone concerns under the eyes.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to swatch the 7 new shades of the lacuqer rouge, but here’s a color chart for you from the website!
Bonbon, Metalrose and Indiscreet looks good! The Lacquer Rouges are retailing at SGD $43.

The entire Shiseido The Makeup Spring 2014 collection is out now at all counters in Singapore! ; ) Hope you see something you like especially if you haven’t gotten any makeup for the new year yet! HUAT ON!

P.S. – I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much beauty stuff lately – I’ve been getting pretty bad breakouts on the lower part of my face – while it is not too obvious in group photos and such, it makes me feel lousy because I can see it and it shows up in my typical beauty photos. I feel pretty down about it and it’s already been a while now – about 6 months? It improved while I was on medication, but I’ve since stopped as I’m still trying to conceive. It’s mostly hormonal / stress acne so I’m in a pretty helpless situation, just trying to not aggravate it further and try to hasten to healing process! (不忍老不行… My skin doesn’t seem to heal as quickly as it did when I was younger!)
