The powder comes with a special sponge that has a special curve to help application more evenly. The sponge was made from a different material compared to most sponges available in the market. This sponge able to pick up quite a handful of products but afraid not, there won’t be too much products transferred during the application.

I have tried wearing Shu Uemura Oleo Pact for a while. The foundation feels lightweight and yet it provides medium that can be build to high coverage.

There were few methods of application I have tested so far. I have tried applying this with foundation brush (stippling brush) and the result was not satisfying. I can see brush strokes when I use foundation brush to apply. I have also tried using the sponge with tapping motion, and apparently I feel that the finish would be too thick for my liking. Finally I tried using the given sponge in a pulling motion. After getting enough amount of product on the sponge, I’ll apply it on my face with pulling motion. In this way, the coverage and the finish looks beautiful.

In the pictures above, I have shown the difference Oleo Pact can do to your skin. With a gentle swipe, this foundation covers my flaws and makes my skin looks smoother.

Shu Uemura Oleo Pact will be available islandwide in Singapore in September

Kiehl’s Singapore celebrate 10th birthday, and here are my favorite products…

IMG_9752.jpg

 

Happy birthday to Kiehl’s Singapore!!

Kiehl’s Singapore celebrates their 10th anniversary

I would like to take this opportunity to write a post dedicated to my favorite Kiehl’s products. I started using Kiehl’s product about two years ago and these products have always been my favorite and I will always repurchase the products whenever I almost ran out of these.

Here are my favorite products from Kiehl’s and products are not in sequence..

IMG_9756.jpg

Firstly is the Ultra Facial Cream. My skin type is normal to combination – however at certain times, my cheek area tends to be drier than the usual. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream comes in few types; the classic ultra facial cream, the intense hydration and lastly the newly launched is the oil free type. The products captured above is the classic type and the intense hydration type.

I love both face creams, they moisturises my skin without leaving a greasy feeling. On top of that, the product is fragrance free, so it’s a lovely product to be used anytime of the day. I am using the classic ultra facial cream for my day use and the intense hydration for my night routine.

Here’s another product that I have been using over and over again.I am currently on my third bottle. Here’s Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. This serum helps to minimize dark spots and to brighten the skintone. I love this product because it’s effective in brightening my skintone. Whenever I feel that my skin feels dull, I’ll pick this out and apply it onto my face. In few days, I will usually be able to witness the result; my skin looks brighter and healthier.

Lastly it would be the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This was the first oil based products that I tried and since then, I have always been a lover of oil based products. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery is the product I am looking for whenever I am having a breakout – it has always helps to calm my skin down. This would also be the product that I am looking for whenever I feel too tired to apply many products at night. I will apply my serum quickly and add this as a moisturiser.

I also love Kiehl’s Suncreen, BB cream and many others.. But these three has always been my top picks from Kiehl’s! If you have not tried any of these, you can always pop by at Kiehl’s store and ask for samples.

And to celebrate Kiehl’s Singapore 10th Birthday, Kiehl’s is collaborating with Olivia Ong to release a limited edition designed Calendula Toner and Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. The design is inspired by one of Kiehl’s most iconic and long standing ingredients from nature – Calendula flower.

What’s inside July Bellabox?

IMG_9733.jpg

 

This July, Bellabox invites all of us to get a glimpse of Paris. This month’s theme is Parisienne. I am so excited to try the samples provided in this box! There are many lovely things that I’ve been wanting to try but haven’t got the chance to do so. So let’s unbox this month’s Bellabox!

 

IMG_9735.jpg

 

  • Lollipops Glossy Lipstick in Fatal Cocktail – This is my first ever Lollipops product! As the name suggest, this lipstick is glossy in a coral shade. The shade looks quite bold to me but for a glossy finish, this is something that I would wear :)
  • Hanaka Hydro Rejuvenate Set by Beautify Me – a very cute packaged facial mask. There are two pieces of this in July Bellabox.
  • L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 emergency care – Love how handy this hair serum is. The smell of this haircare product is also pleasant to my nose
  • L’OREAL Paris UV Perfect Anti Dullness UV Protector – I tried this sunscreen once and my first impression was that this sunscreen feels lightweight to me. It is packed with SPF 50+ UVB, UVA PA+++ which is highly essential in this sunny Singapore
  • Givenchy Ange Ou Demon Le Secret EDP – playful scent for floral scent
  • Nuxe White Brightening Moisturizing Emulsion – I love Nuxe products in general. Nuxe has few products ranges that are worth to try on.
  • Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment & Glamglow Youthmud Tinglefoliate Treatment – These two product are the most exciting for me as I have not tried any Glamglow products before. I have been hearing how effective these masks are! So far I am liking both masks – love how my skin looks bright after applying the mask.
  • LIERAC Sensory Oil with 3 white flowers – yay for another oil for me to try! I am a big fan of oils for skincare ; facial oils, hair oils and body oil. I am using this oil at night. I love how calming the scent is – it soothe my mind and moisturises my skin throughout the night
  • Phytokeratine Ultra Repairing Mask – if you are having a frizzy and dry hair, this could be a rescuer! I tried this on my hair and love how my hair feels after application, it’s easier to control and it feels smoother instantly.

My Verdict on July’s bellabox:

I am very happy with the samples given in this month’s Bellabox. Many products here are pretty new to me and so far I am loving how the products works on me. My personal favourite product has got to be the Glamglow Mask and Lierac Sensory Oil.

YSL Couture Palette #7 Parisienne

This Summer, YSL is launching newly designed and reformulated eyeshadow palette  Couture Palette. This range of eyeshadow is created to capture the essence of Yves Saint Laurent. The range consists of 11 shades – ranging from soft shades to colorful and bold shades to play with. I have with me no 7 Parisienne to show you, hope you enjoy this post :)

IMG_9726.jpg

The packaging of YSL Couture Palette is the same as the previous eyeshadow palette – encased in luxurious gold casing with the iconic YSL logo. The colors presented in Parisienne is inspired by the twilight of parisian apartment. The colors in this palette are exceptionally girly in a captivating way.

The shades in this palette are very girly, sweet and the colors are easy to wear. The shades are shimmery but without giving any over shimmery look. The shades in this palette are mostly sheer, not too pigmented. It’s such an easy to use palette without having to worry that you’re applying too much products

IMG_9728.jpg.jpg

  • The base color is a light taupe shade with shimmers
  • Highlight shade is the frosty soft pink – I recommend to dab your brush lightly into this shade as dabing into it too hard will create a too frosty finish
  • Shade 1 is a brown – purple shade, this shade has less shimmer and it is less frosty compared to the other shades
  • Shade 2 is a light plum shade with shimmer
  • Shade 3 is a shimmery pink, at some lighting it looks a bit lilac to me.

IMG_9731.jpg

 

Swatches according to the shades: B – H – 2 – 3 – 1

 

IMG_9730.jpg

 

The shades in this palette could never go wrong. My personal favorite shade has got to be shade 3. It’s such a sweet and natural shade without being boring. I love how this shade brightens my overall look without making me looking washed out.

Although most of the time I would opt for a more pigmented shades, I would say this is one of the sheer palette that has won my heart. Wearing the shades are not a chore at all, not to mention that there’s no fall out at all. I applied the shades using eyeshadow brush and the eyeshadow sets easily and stays for a good 5 hours with no signs of fading.

I did a simple look with Parisienne. Please pardon the eyeliner on my eyelid, I wasn’t being patient to wait for my liquid liner to dry :)

If you have not checked this range yet, you should! The range of colors are beautiful and pretty wide, so there should be one that catches your attention ;)

IMG_9706.jpg

In a humit and hot day, I often source for a product that hydrates my skin without leaving any sticky feeling. Thanks to Guerlain for sending me this item and letting me try this.

The key to have young and radiant skin is by constant hydration. I always try to keep my skin hydrated by religiously applying moisturizer and drink plenty of water. Guerlain Super Aqua Creme Day Gel is packed with aquacomplex. Aquacomplex is an exclusive combination of plant and biotechnological ingredients. The quantity and quality of the water infused in the product is important as this will affect the ability of the product to naturally boost hydration flows and restore the skin’s youthful appearance.

Super Aqua Creme Gel feels lightweight to me, this is a perfect gel moisturizer for my daily use. Upon applying the creme, my skin feels refreshed immediately. I love the fresh scent this day gel provides, no alcoholic smell and it makes me feel fresh. But for those who are sensitive to smell, you may want to check this out at the counter if the scent suits your liking.
