Midweek Peek #19: Birthday Haul from Sephora


My birthday was actually last month, but I finally had the time for a quick sneak into Sephora last week to claim my birthday gift! This year it’s finally not a Sephora-brand item, which was what they gave over the last couple of years – but a little gift set from Benefit!

I love Benefit’s cheeky names for their products – this one is called the “Seal Turn-Ons!”, and contains a mini They’re Real! mascara and a mini Watt’s Up! highlighter. I adore their deluxe sample sizes – they’re great for a good many uses and comes in really pretty proper packaging.

Hope you like reading these midweek peeks! Short, concise and straight to the point. Do let me know if you have any comments – whether you like reading longer posts, or if you prefer them to be sandwiched with short posts like these!

Empties #17: January 2015 – Part 1


It’s the first empties post of 2015! Oh boy, am I excited! Now that I’m on a beauty budget, I’ve been focusing on using up what I already have this month, rather than buying more new items. I always neglect the foil packs – even on holidays, I don’t bring them along though they would be more convenient as I like to carry little bottles of skincare that I know will work well on me, so this month I’ve been trying to dwindle my stash of sample foil packs down.

5 Friday Favourites #5


Wow, I have been neglecting my 5 Friday Favourites! It’s not that I don’t have any – somehow I just never remember to put them up. I’ve been on the move lately – taking some weekend trips as well as running about town meeting up with friends since it’s the holidays so I have been enjoying things that are convenient, travel-friendly or have more than one use.

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer is a great cheek highlighter for the face, and can be used as a brow bone shade as well. I’ve been loving the Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment – a nice soft rose shade on the lips and provides moisture at the same time. Covergirl CG Smoothers Concealer in 710 Light works well when you’re short on time or have forgotten to bring foundation along; in a pinch I just swipe a couple of strokes everywhere, blend it in, and that’s all I need.

I’ve been bringing around this mini tube of Benefit Stay Don’t Stray – the itty bitty size is just too cute but of course it’s not just about the packaging; it works really well at keeping eyeshadow in place. The Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Gloss in Belle looks so beautiful on the lips; it’s not too sticky, feels comfortable on and easy to throw on towards the end of the day to vamp up your look for the night.

So that’s 5 items that I have been absolutely loving lately; what about you?

Unboxing: The Little Black Beauty Box – September 2014


I know, I know. I said I wasn’t going to get the next TLBBB last month, but I saw the brands included in this month’s box and I could not resist getting it! I’m such a sucker like that! The box came very punctually this time – in the last few days of August; I’ve had it sitting on my desk for a week before posting this up. As usual, it costs S$22.90 inclusive of delivery. Let’s take a look at what’s in it!
