[What's New] Essence Cosmetics Brings Cinderella To You

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Get your glass slippers polished as Essence Cosmetics presents a new collection this month, featuring the magical Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother.


I'm always there every month checking out Essence Cosmetics' latest collection and I was jumping with joy to see that they have launched this much awaited collection! 

It features all things glittery and sparkly, as though you have your very own Fairy Godmother to help you get through the night before the clocks strikes at midnight. This makes a good collection to have for this last quarter of year as I bet you will have lots of "ball dances" to go to ~


The packaging itself is already a must have addition to your beauty collection, but I think 1 to must have is the highlighter powder. See how pretty it is with the embossed roses ~



The eyeshadow palette seemed like something you would have in your collection, not really a must get, but the nail polishes and nail stickers are definitely another thing to have, to make you stand right out at the parties.







And since everything is so affordable, do grab yourself a blusher and the lipgloss too! They are good additions if you want the additional glitter and sparkle on the dance floor. So, what's next to just that gown! :D






The Essence Cosmetics' Cinderella collection is already out at Watsons, do head on early to get them before your carriage turns back into a pumpkin! :)

[What's New] ETUDE HOUSE Rewards Princesses With Decoden Kits

| |
Hi Huneybees,


I made a special trip down to ETUDE HOUSE at VivoCity on Monday just coz they have a special "Thank You" event for their supporting Princesses.


Well, being the big fan, of course I'm on the Royal Pink level already. Hehehehe...


For those we are on the same membership as me, you are in for a treat! Simply just by purchasing the Pearl Aura Cushion, you will receive a Cushion Case Decoden Kit for you to decorate your Cushion casings. 



And on top of that, you will get the new series - Loving Days Body Wash & Lotion, the coveted pink accessory pouch and a 20% off discount voucher for next purchase!


There are 2 designs to choose from and once you have made the payment, you will be lead to this private corner at the VivoCity's ETUDE HOUSE to decorate your very own Pearl Aura Cushion. 


I wanted the candy sweet decoden kit as I wasn't such a big fan of the Marc Jacobs-esque flower decoden kit, but side note, the flowers one was a hot favourite! I thought I would be getting the set home to decorate at my own sweet pace or with my own addition, but seems like you have to spend some time there to finish up, before you will be given that pink accessory pouch.


So, those who wanted to get their BFFs to help get, you have to trust their creativity skills and that they will do a good job on yours too?


This is what I made there and I still had some decoden left over as well as the Cream Glue, so if you want to do a little touch up when back home, you can go ahead and add more bling to them. I'm definitely gona get some crystals to add on. Hehehehe...


I'm gona end this post with what the Pearl Aura Cushion looks like. This BB Cream comes with added Pearl Brightener for you to create that pearly aura skin with a glow. I will share more once I've given it a test run. So stay tuned!



There is going to be another round of this event on 30 - 31 July 2015, at VivoCity ETUDE HOUSE from 12 - 8pm. Of course, if you are not a Royal Pink member yet, you are still welcome to come get your very own limited edition Decoden Kit. 

With any purchase of the Pearl Aura Cushion or $50 Nett Purchase, you too will get a set as well as a Pink Accessory Pouch! Do share your creations with me once you are done! Can't wait to see them. 


Have fun! :)

[Tried & Tested] Falling Head Over Heels With Too Faced LOVE FLUSH Blushers

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Yipee! Too Faced has once again bought me over with their super adorable new blushers - Too Faced LOVE FLUSH. Just when you thought the packaging is all, you are SOoooOO wrong! The fun only begins when you open them up!


6 different love names for each shade with the claim to wear up to 16 hours, I knew these are my must haves in my makeup bag! Blushers normally fade easily through the day and upon knowing they last that long, I was quickly opening up each box, eager to give them a test-run.


I literally blasted "Kawaii!" the moment I opened my first box of Love Flush. It did shock my mum a little, but once she saw them, I knew she has already "fallen in love" too. 

Each blusher comes in a lacquered heart-shaped compact with a mirror inside, you will find a pretty embossed bunny print with the brand's logo on the powder blush, that every "Alice In Wonderland" must bring along in their bags! I didn't bear to destroy the image and was picking off colours of the sides to swatch...

Baby Love


Described as a “soft dusty nude with fine gold sparkle”, this earthy peach shade has a with subtle warm undertone, that comes with a little dusting of gold shimmer and sparkle. It may seem muted under the natural lighting, but once I have it under flash, that's when the sparkles do their work. This soft shade is good to be lightly brushed in for the day and you can add on the layers for the night out, to give your face the "glow"...

I Will Always Love You 


Yes, yes! I foresee this will be a hot favourite with this light peachy-gold shimmer shade. This shimmery shade is more visible on the skin, but it will be lovely if you want to brighten the face and bring the sun along everywhere you go. It will be good to wear on its on, or even matched with other shades as a highlighter.

How Deep Is Your Love 

Every time I call out "How Deep Is Your Love", I'm thinking of Bee Gees. Hehehe...
This watermelon pink coral blush with a satin finish would work great on our Asian skin. The formula is a little less easy to blend, but this soft, natural sheen is good to use for day to day with natural makeup and a flick of eyeliner.

Love Hangover


"Love Hangover" is the peachy pink blusher with warm undertones and a soft golden sheen that is absolutely gorgeous. It is great for that natural flush of colour without being visibly shimmery and highly easy to build on layers. Just as its description on the box, it is the perfect warm pink shade to get those around you a little tipsy... :)

Justify My Love


If you are not so much into sparkly, glittery blushers, "Justify My Love" might just be the shade for you. It is the most muted blusher out of the 6 and I would definitely be using this one if I wana look more awake for that sweet look. Don't this gorgeous shade just remind you of those conversation heart candies?

Your Love Is King


I'm not so much a fan for this plumy rose shade, I find that my skin seems to look bruised with such a dark tone. It may work well if you are applying a light brush of it to contour your cheeks for the dimensional look, but out of the lot, this is the better pigmented one and I would definitely recommend a softer hand on this, and slowly build it up to the desired tone.



Overall, I am very happy with these Too Faced Love Flush blushers for their pigmented and easy-to-blend formulas. They are cruelty free and made without parabens, sulfates and pthalates and me being the sucker for cute and creative packaging, I'm already sold, what more can I say? Hehehehe...

They will be made available in the Sephora stores in Singapore soon, but if you can't wait anymore, you can head on over to the Too Faced website and start purchasing them now! :)
