[SAMPLE] Etude House Face Blur

Face Blur sounds exactly like the kind of option you’ll find on a camera, and that is precisely what this product is meant to do – smoothen and ‘blur’ your face so that it looks camera-ready all the time. Product description This lightweight cream provides multi-blurring effects for instantly refined and smooth skin. Skin’s texture…

Etude House Styling Eye Liner

I’ve hopped on the bandwagon of underlining eyes with white eyeliner to make my eyes look bigger and brighter, but my choices of white eyeliner are actually rather limited (Play 101 pencil from Etude House and Urban Decay Naked 24/7 Glide-On Double-Ended Eye Pencil), so I wanted to try something new. Product description Smooth gliding Auto…

RiRe Luxe Glow Lipstick

I had never heard of RiRe until I was shopping online on Althea. I am usually a bit wary of buying cosmetics from brands I’m not familiar with because I’m afraid of allergy reactions and disappointing results, but I decided to try this after my relatively ok experience with the brand’s All Kill Blackhead Removal…

Innisfree Always New Auto Liner

One of the necessities in my makeup routine is eyeliner. I have monolids, which make for really plain-looking eyes. It also doesn’t help that my eyes are small, so I try to compensate for that with eyeliner and eyeshadow. I’m still not that great at eyeliner yet, so I’m always on the lookout for products…

Aritaum Lip Cover Color Tint

One of the ways brands draw you in to browse cosmetics is through the wide selection of colours and products available. Aritaum is highly successful at this (of course, not only because it boasts of many other AMOREPACIFIC brands), and I became an unfortunate victim of this successful merchandising. Product description A long-wearing matte lip…

COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads

COSRX is the skincare brand that everyone seems to be talking about, including Youtubers such as Joan Kim, who sings praises of their products in almost all her videos. I knew I had to try it out when I went to Korea, so I bought one of their star products, the One Step Pimple Clear…

THEFACESHOP Moisture Touch Lipstick

THEFACESHOP has Suzy as its ambassador, and it’s not hard to see why. With natural beauty, elegance and a touch of innocence, Suzy is known in Korea as the nation’s ‘first love’. I liked her role in Dream High a lot, and it was because of her that I took special notice of THEFACESHOP as…

Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder

You might have already heard rave reviews about this product from beauty bloggers and Youtubers. I was pretty late to the game – I only heard about this from my friend after I told her that I was looking to buy a setting powder. I saw this selling on Althea for pretty cheap, so I…

Top 10 Songs – EXO

With the increasing number of K-pop artists and songs being churned out everyday, it is easy to lose track of what is truly gold in this genre. This series is a (personal) list of the best of each artist. Arguably the most definitive third-generation act in K-pop history, EXO has been a chart-topper and award-winner since…

IOPE Air Cushion

I had heard multiple wonderful reviews of IOPE’s Air Cushion, therefore I finally decided to buy one even though I’m not a heavy user of cushion compacts. Product description Cushion foundation that provides powerful protection against UV rays and delivers complete coverage for natural, luminous complexion. Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 37.34 (Lazada) Image credits…

Aritaum Wonder Stay Stick Tint

If you’ve been to Korea, you might have seen Aritaum stores in almost every district you went. Aritaum is AMOREPACIFIC’s store for selling products from their brands (e.g. Mamonde, LANEIGE), but besides that, Aritaum is also its own brand! I would say that Aritaum offers more affordably-priced products, on about the same level as Etude…

Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect

I sometimes sweat so much in the unbearable Singapore heat that even the strongest BB cream cannot hold up perfectly. At other times, I’m simply too lazy to apply BB cream, especially when I travel, which was why I bought a cushion compact to do my makeup on the go. Product description Perfect cover, smooth…
