Makeup Collection // Highlighters

Makeup Collection // Highlighters

Hi there! It's been very grey and stormy this week, I'm hoping this will cheer you (and me) up on this dreary Thursday. Let's talk all about highlighters! Before we get into the collection, a bit of nostalgia. My very first one was Nars Orgasm, back when it came in a tube. I quickly realized just how much it can change your look with just a tiny bit, I was hooked. It was pink and gold, I used it everyday with all combinations of blushes. I was obsessed! Naturally, since then, the obsession has grown. L-R…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar

This has got to be one of the cutest cosmetic items I own. It's so light and small, very prone to getting lost in my purse but overall a pretty good blush. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar is described as a peachy pink but honestly, on me it's more of a light rosy pink. This supposedly also has skincare benefits, which not what I bought it for so, I can't really review that aspect of this product. It's a cream blush which turns to powder and gives a matte finish. Unlike…Read more
Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination

Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination

There is this notion that Elizabeth Arden is only for oldies. I'd like to challenge that with this gorgeous timeless highlighter! Elizabeth Arden released a limited edition Rose Aurora collection in 2012, which had a few products in this gorgeous rose gold packaging. But you can still buy this highlighter online! Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination is the perfect rose gold highlighter. It's a light peachy pink with gold shimmer running through it when you swatch it heavily. But when you blend it it's more of a warm champagne pink. It's…Read more

This post is quite late but it's time for the October favourites! This time it's a mix of some things I've been using for months and by beloved lip butters.     01. Foundation : Dior : Nude in 040 Honey The pump is really messy to work with and the foundation is the perfect if you want sheer coverage.   02.
