New In: YSL CHYC

YSL CHYC Double Bracelet
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!

Macadamia all the way.


A few hair reinforcement products from Organix to help nourish my dry and damaged hair. I have read quite a number of good reviews about these.

I will report back on these after a few weeks of testing.

More Torys.


Remember the new pairs of Torys I told you about in my last post? Well, they have arrived two days ago. My very kind husband gladly took it with him, on his flight back to Manila.


I got two Thora Sandals, one of which is is black jelly (great for days at the beach) and a pair of Suede flats. These were ordered from Shopbop and Net-a-porter.

Another pair I ordered was the Laguna Snake embossed flip flops from Gorjana. Gorjana not only makes pretty accessories, they also make pretty flip flops.


Im sure you can tell how much I love animal prints and Tory Burch. TB is one my favorite shoe brands!

Yellow for a change.

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.

What do you think of bright colored shoes?

BB cream for Oily Skin.

l-r: unblended & blended

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?

Best Sponge?

My new tool for a better makeup application. I was tempted to buy these after reading loads of good reviews. Is it the best sponge applicator in the market?

How do you use yours? Do you use it dry or damp? Comment away.. :)

Naked Two.


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.

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy


Speaking of lipbalms..here's another one which I recently purchased, the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy. Mine is in #3 Juicy Grapefruit.

The packaging is elegant. Glides on smoothly on the lips, smells really nice. This will surely become a favorite!

Lanolips


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:
Multi-Award Winning* Rediscover the magic of lanolin in this heavy-duty, 100% natural ointment like no other. Lanolips 101 Ointment is the purest of pure wonder ointment, made with Lanolips' exclusive 100% Ultra Pure Grade Lanolin.
This ultimate luxuriously creamy ointment contains 100% Ultra Pure Grade Lanolin which literally melts between your fingers. This magical multi-purpose product has multiple uses such as extremely chapped lips, dry cuticles, dry, itchy skin, dry nasal passages and more. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

  • 100% pure
  • 100% natural ingredients
  • 100% fragrance free
  • Holds up to 200% of its weight in moisture
  • 100% colour free
  • Vegetarian & baby friendly
  • Dermatalogically tested
  • Patent pending
  • The world's finest lanolin
  • All Lanolips products are animal cruelty free.

Usage: Warm the ointment between fingers or apply directly onto your lips. Use generously.


















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.

Real Techniques.


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.

Whats not to love right?

Chanel Illusoire.


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.
