Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea Fragrance Collection

Kiehl’s presents a new range of scent of their aromatic blends. This time, it’s a unique blend of Vetiver and Black Tea.

The new fragrance, Vetiver & Black Tea, gives patrons an invigorating woody fragrance selection that captures the earthy, sweet aroma of Vetiver and the soothing, citrus-like aroma of Black Tea.

As a tea lover, I like the non intimidating smell of this scent. I can smell the black tea in this product – it gives a relaxing aroma to my mind whenever I apply it.

Some of you might not be familiar with Vetiver; Vetiver is originally grown and harvested in Haiti. Vetiver is also a vital plant for supporting soil retention and irrigation control. This oil gives a woody scent with sweet-sour accents and a woody-balsamic undertone. Whereas for black tea, I am sure many of you are familiar with black tea and might be drinking it almost everyday. Ceylon black tea is harvested in the high mountains of Sri Lanka and it’s dried and fermented afterwards. With this method, we’ll get the soothing and citrusy fragrance of black tea.

This range comes with Softening Body Cleanser and Softening Body Lotion, The body cleanser is sulfate free and the body lotion is silicone free.

Aromatic Blends Vetiver & Black Tea Body Cleanser 250ml retails for $33

Aromatic Blends Vetiver & Black Tea Body Lotion 250ml retails for $43

I personally love this range especially the shower gel, It has a unique smell that only this range can offer. It gives a relaxing aroma without being too intimidating. Try to visit Kiehl’s store and give this range a try!

My First Post of “What is in My Current Make Up Bag?” – November Edition

image (2)

 

 

Hello everyone!

It’s my first “What is in My Current Make Up Bag?” post ever. I am so excited to write this post as these products are the ones I use regularly for my touch ups. I hope I would be able to post this regularly once every 2 months or so. So here are the products I currently have on my make up bag:

  • NARS Fairy’s Kiss Palette: This is the palette that I currently have on my make up bag. It has 6 versatile shades to be used for my day/night look. I did a review of this palette on my previous post. You may read the review HERE
  • Chanel Compact Mirror which I received from a friend. I am really glad that she gave me this mirror, I love how beautiful the red color is.
  • Urban Decay Naked FLUSHED palette: This is a genius palette which I love a lot. It is a complete three in one palette consisting of bronzer, blush and highlighter. The shade can be used nicely on people with either dark or light skin tone. I have done a detailed review HERE
  • YSL Touche Eclat: This is a must have product on my make up pouch. I use this product to highlight my browbone and as a corrector. Believe it or not, I have never changed this product from my make up bag for more than a year as I find this product is very useful as a touch up tool.
  • Rimmel Stay Matte powder: This is a relatively new product that I tried recently. So far this powder has works pretty well on me. It helps to control the oil in my T-zone area. I must admit that this powder is not the best powder I’ve tried but considering the price I paid, I am happy to repurchase this again.
  • Maybelline Rocket Mascara: This mascara is my current favorite mascara. It helps to lengthen my eyelash and at the same time it makes my lashes looks thicker. I have a short and rather droopy mascara and there are only few mascara that works for me. Maybelline Rocket mascara stays for the whole day for me without smudging. Moreover, cleaning this mascara is so easy! Warm water is all you need to clean all the mascara on the lashes.
  • Chanel Retractable Kabuki Brush: I love the softness of this brush. The hair are dense and this brush can be used as a blush brush, bronzer brush and even powder brush. It’s a perfect brush to be kept in my make up pouch. I have reviewed the product previously, you may read it HERE
  • YSL Glossy Stain in 101 Reckless Pink: What I love about YSL Glossy stain is the texture. The shade stays on for a long time (4-5 hours at least) and the I love the shine this lipstain has. I specially love shade “reckless pink” as it looks natural on my lip but the shine it has adds something more to my look. I have reviewed & swatched YSL Glossy Stain Rebel Nudes on one of my blogpost HERE
  • Chanel Rouge Allure in 88 Evanescente: This is a natural pinkish nude lipstick. I always rotate my nude lipstick shade every two weeks or every month. This is to make sure that all my nude lipsticks are well loved :p
  • Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner: hands down! This has got to be my all time fave liquid eyeliner. It has never fail to stay on my lid for the whole day without smudging. The brush size is nicely designed; it’s not too long and not too pointy, the size is just nice to apply line along my lash line. This eyeliner retails at SGD 20-25 (I can’t remember the exact price) at major drugstore in Singapore.
  • Last but not least, is a Chloe perfume miniature. This is one of my fave perfume and it’s always a pleasure to add a bit of smell after a long day at work.

 

Wah I just realized that I have quite a lot of things on my make up pouch ;) Some of my friends have commented that I have so many things on my make up bag; however I enjoy bringing these make up on my bag. It’s a pleasure to do a touch up during lunch break or after work before dinner.

I’ll try to rotate the products in my make up bag and I hope that I’ll be able to write on this topic on a regular basis :)

 

 

Share with me on what you have on your make up bag, please :)

 

 

Thank you for reading!

Introducing Balmain Eau d’Ivoire

 

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 9.39.51 PM

 

Palm trees, Cadillacs, walls with colors devoured by the sun: this season a new page in the Ivoire story will be written in Miami, a place of warmth and delicious Cuban influences, with a beautiful Art Deco district and energy and optimism to spare. For this escape to pleasure, the Balmain woman needs a new fragrance worthy of the city’s immoderate appeal. Eau d’Ivoire is an upbeat travel souvenir, like Olivier Rousteing’s memory of a stay at South Beach, a scent that will mark Balmain fashion with structured casualness and elegant insolence.

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 9.35.08 PM

 

Miami vibe

Pink, like the walls on Collins Avenue, pastel, like the ones along Ocean Drive…unique Eau d’Ivoire. Stylized elegance, as fresh and luminous as it is feminine. Perfectly in-line with Ivoire.

Eau d’Ivoire is the Balmain woman’s summer accessory: a subtle mix of exceptional materials blended with natural simplicity.

Energy first of all: the vibrant energy of bergamot essence and the resonance of sun-drenched sweet red currant. Next comes joy, with a flower heart bursting into bloom. The exquisite exoticism of honey-toned osmanthus absolute brings to mind the roundness of a lusciously ripe apricot. Magnolia essence deploys a vanilla- scented softness, lightly accented with lemon.

BA005E01 Eau d Ivoire Packshot 100 ml

 

An indispensable accessory

The box Eau d’Ivoire is a reference to the codes of the House of Balmain. The detail of a texture. Art Deco patterns. Graphic lines. Matte contrasting with brilliance.

The bottle The Eau d’Ivoire bottle remains the same: recognizable and iconic. The weighty feel of glass and pure lines reflect Balmain elegance.

The fragrance takes on a pink hue, like dawn on a summer’s morning.

The First See by Chloé fragrance

See By ChloÇ Creative Shot

a mischievous game of hide and seek

a breath of perfume, an intriguing personality…

draped in the natural elegance of her well-known sister, the see by chloé girl twirls. instinctively playful, smiling, immersed in the moment… urban, self-confident, she arouses the unexpected and cultivates contrasts. assertive, seductive, cheerful, hers is a natural smile. her bold and perfumed moods stir the air, dizzying those who look at her.

an addictive fragrance that awakens the senses

created by perfumer michel almairac (robertet), the new see by chloé fragrance reveals an addictive floral scent. like a sweet smile, the first sparkling notes of bergamot stir the senses. tangy essences. elusive, the see by chloé girl flies off. in an accord of apple blossom, the grace of jasmine caresses this natural seductress. an olfactory game of hide and seek uncovers sensual notes of sandalwood and vanilla.

a playful bottle

barely escaped from its glossy pink case, the perfume is revealed by a multi-faceted bottle. a silver ring outlines the pink letters of the see by chloé logo. the glass pleats and the three adorable feet make the precious juice sparkle. mirror effects and transparency compose a luminous game of hide and seek.

defying the rules of the game, the see by chloé girl naturally reveals herself. she waves, the bottle’s silver ring slipped around her finger. playfully, her hand twirls around it before gripping it furtively. seizing her chance, giving in to temptation.

a call of freedom

joyful, spontaneous, full of wonders… bette franke, the face of see by chloé, has been caught by surprise. unusual snapshot, stolen moment in a mischievous game of hide and seek.

natural, irresistible, she enjoys herself.
her defiant gaze suggests a possible escape…

My Thoughts:

I have always been a fan of Chloe Perfume. I have finished my first bottle and now I am on my second bottle. And when I received the news that See by Chloe is going to release a new perfume, I am so excited!! :D I am pretty sure that I’m going to love the scent.

See by Chloe has a very nice bottle with a pink “See by Chloe” printed on it. It looks very girly :) It smells so fresh; it has a sweet fruitty scent that makes me feel young and energetic. This perfume lasts with me for 5 hours and I need to spray more after that.

PS: I need to make a confession that I really love this perfume and I actually just bought its body lotion :p I just couldn’t resist getting the matching lotion scent to moisturize my body. I just LOVE it!

Launching exclusively at metro paragon on 22nd march 2013. available from april 2013 at tangs orchard, tangs vivocity, takashimaya d.s., robinsons raffles city, robinsons centrepoint, robinsons marina bay sands and isetan scotts.

Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012 Haul

Hi Hi!

I will be posting a quick post about my haul at Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012.

I found out about this warehouse sale from Michelle from Ice Frost Diary‘s blog. I missed this event last year so I definitely would not want to miss this event again.

The sale was mainly about perfume. There are too many brands of perfume to mention; Chloe, Marc Jacob, Balenciaga, Hermès, Prada, Annick Goutal, acqua di parma, etc. The make up brands are Burberry, Guerlain, RMK, Anna Sui. There are many french skincare brands too!

Here’s a quick snap of my haul:

My hauls are mainly Burberry makeup product. The eyeshadows are at $15, The lipstick was at $20, Concealer was at $25, Lip liner was at $12. The non make up item I bought from Burberry is Burberry The Beat Perfume. This was sold at $49 (50ml)

I also picked Guerlain Emillio Pucci Terra Azzura at $50. I am so happy that finally I am getting this at a more reasonable price. I believe this was retailed at more than $100. I also picked up the nail polish at $12.

I hope to review these makeup items soon. I really want to use my Burberry products as soon as possible and see how much I like them :)
