Morning! It’s a cool, rainy morning over here and I’m already feeling excited because it’s almost the weekend. Can you smell it approaching already? 🙂
I’m in a cheery mood today and here’s my lipstick pick for this Thursday morning.
Name: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in shade 02 Red Door Red
Colour: A dark red
Texture, scent and finish: Goes on smoothly like a lip balm, highly moistursing and pigmented, smells yummy because it contains Shea Butter.
Lasting Power: I love this lipstick because it stays on your lips for a long time without drying it out! It’s not completely transferproof, but it stays on your lips for at least the next 4-5 hours 🙂 It works for me and that has to count for something because I drink lots of water at work each day!
Has anyone tried lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden? I’d love to hear what are some of your favourites 🙂
Hola, here’s my lip colour for the week! Introducing the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon!
Colour: A coral shade, similar to fruit punch and does indeed bear resemblance to watermelon juice, like its namesake.
Texture: Smooth, like a tinted lip balm. Goes on a bit sheer, and is moisturising. I apply two layers.
Scent: A peppermint scent that fades off quickly once you apply it.
Packaging: Cardboard tube with floral prints. Pretty!
Wear time: As this is a sheer lipstick, you would need to reapply after meals and after you drink from a mug. Doesn’t affect me too much because I tend to drink water through a straw now during the day.
Where: Purchased from Sephora, at SGD $26.
Pros: I like the fresh colour and balm-like sheer texture. It makes for easy wearing on casual days!
– It has a peppermint scent, but the scent goes away once you apply it.
– It is not long-lasting, because of its sheer texture.
Verdict: I enjoy using this lipstick because I love the fresh colour and the light texture. It is not long-wearing, but I still like it nonetheless!
Note: All items are purchased by me, unless stated otherwise.
Introducing Tarte’s LipSurgence, in the shade named Escape.
Colour: A rose-pink shimmer, subtle and sheer tint. This can be layered to build colour.
Texture: Glides on smoothly, has hydrating oils to nourish lips. It feels like you’re wearing coloured lip balm. But it can feel a little oily if you apply more than one layer.
Scent: A peppermint scent.
Packaging: A twist stick lip tint. You twist the bottom part.
Wear time: The colour wouldn’t last for a long time, especially if you drink from your mug. But the hydrating oils still remained on my lips after I drank some water.
Where: Purchase it at Sephora
Repurchase?: I don’t recall the price, but this is quite a pricey lip tint to me. This wouldn’t be a priority repurchase for me.
Note: All items are paid for by myself. No items in my blog are sponsored, unless stated otherwise.
I attended a friend’s wedding, and I decided to try out the Etude House Lock ‘N Summer Proof Any Cushion Foundation, in W13, Natural Beige, for the first time! I recently bought it during my Korea trip in June. Here’s my take on it:
Packaging: Cute, white round compact, with a mirror and sponge
The sponge is on a holder, and does not touch the foundation part. Hygienic!
Foundation comes in a sponge form, you use the sponge to press the foam sponge and the foundation goes onto it!
Foundation is refillable, great idea.
Colour and scent: Lovely, light floral scent! I love it.
Coverage is medium, good if you don’t major blemishes to cover. Natural look.

After hearing reviews about the K Palette 24hr 1 Day Tattoo WP Eyeliner in Superior Black 101, I decided to give it a go. But a 24 hours, 1 day tattoo? I think not. It lasted only 5 minutes for me. Perhaps I have slightly oily lids (sensitive combination skin) and the humid weather in Singapore is a factor too, but I was disappointed by the eyeliner’s performance.
Within 5 minutes of walking outside, the eyeliner smudged onto my top part of the eyelids.
The item’s claim to fame: thin felt-tip brush, waterproof, smudgeproof
My verdict: Disappointing performance, probably better suited for dry climates!
Repurchase?: No, I would not repurchase.
