On my most recent trip to Singapore, I spotted these fabulous leather bracelets from YSL. I cannot choose which color to buy, so I got two. :) If only I have the money, I would have bought more. So in love with them!
A very much unplanned-but-so-glad-I-did purchase this afternoon after my follow up check up with my dermatologist.
I was captivated by these bright colored flats from Tory Burch the moment I laid eyes on it at the shop, I did not even try the other colors they have. It's a change from my usual neutral colors. I LOVE it!
I have a few for pairs of TBs coming next week which I ordered from Shopbop.
My new Sweet in Pink travel brushes from Sigma. The kit comes with 7 pieces travel sized brushes and a brush roll to keep the brushes in good condition. I paid $59 exclusive of shipping, but it is on sale now on their website.
Brushes included are:
E10 Small eyeliner
E20 Short Shader
E45 Small Tapered Blending
E50 Large Fluff
F15 Duo Fibre Powder/Blush
F25 Tapered Face
F65 Large Concealer
These will be my new companion when travelling.
I love the quality of Sigma brushes, really comparable to high end brushes which leads me to another brush set I ordered which I will blog about tomorrow.
Do you own these? What are your essential make up tools when travelling?
Aside from lipbalms, I'm also a sucker for BB creams. I think have tried a fair number of BB creams out there. Here's the latest addition to my BB cream collection, it's the Summer Teen BB cream which I bought at an online retailer, Magic Potions and cost $23 for 30g tube. There are also other variations of this BB cream which you can find here.
Summer Teen BB cream is a fresh lighweight, water-resistant and sebum control Blemish Balm that corrects skin toneand protects against sun damage. It contains natural Embilica Extract that gives an intensive whitening effect and natural matte finish. The product is water-resistant (silicone-based). It is made in Korea.
Oil control + Whitening + Sun Protection Formula 15 + Natural Matte Finish which is good for those with oily skin like mine.
I will give my full thoughts on this on a couple of weeks.
What new BB creams have you tried? Will you give this a try?
Thinking of how many times i put on makeup the past months, I honestly think I dont need this, but I want it, so I bought it! There's something about the UD palettes that makes me want to buy collect them all. I have a few now in my collection.
Cant wait to play with them once my face is completely healed from the Obagi Blue Peel I had a few days ago, which I will be discussing in a different post.
Something I bought when I was in UK. Im a sucker for lipbalms, i try every brand i know and search for new ones to add to my collection. I have chapped lips, probably due to not drinking enough water.
On a trip to Boots, I came across Lanolips and browsed through its selection. I decided to try the 101 Ointment first, if I liked it, then I would buy the ones with colour. Got it in Boots for GBP11.22.
Something about the product from their website:

I like how it glides on to my lips once it has melted. Its odourless, and makes my lips hydrated. I just didnt notice how long it lasted on my lips. As you can see from the description, its not just for your lips, its multi-purpose.
A few weeks ago, I ordered some of the Real Techniques brushes from amazon. These brushes are very popular in the beauty blogging community because they are owned by one of the Pixiwoos, Samantha Chapman.
I watch all of their tutorials in youtube and I see they often use these brushes. Since I have a thing for brushes, I decided to get it.
I must say that the quality of these brushes are awesome for their price. They are really affordable. The handles are very sturdy, the colors are so girly, and they perform well.
At first, I was hesitant in buying the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre or the long wear eyeshadows. Being lazy in applying makeup the past months, I know I shouldn't buy more make ups.
But one day, I decided to give it a go, since it's been on my wishlist since it was launched. All the colors are gorgeous, but I cannot buy them all, its pricey. The color i chose was 83 Illusoire. I can't say how much I love the color. Im just hoping I can use it more often. It also came with a brush/applicator.
Its pricey but i think its worth it. The texture is just divine.
