Current essential in my hangbag

I told this photo last week, but totally forgot to update ¬_¬

I tend to have less items in my bag as I hate carrying a heavy bag, but as I have only been in Singapore for a month or so, I already have skin allergy attack twice, I have to bring more, in case the condition goes worst.

Must have:

  • Compact foundation (Cezenne, which I bought super cheaply in HK for ~£9/S$18)
  • Mascara (17 Waterproof sample)
  • Hand cream (Ren Vetiver)
  • Lip balm (Body Shop) or Lip Gloss (Smashbox)
  • Contact lens eye drop (Rohto 3, personally I love the rohto series as the minty, cooling sensation waken my eyes but it's like a marmite, you either like it or you don't)
  • Travalo perfume bottle w/ Elizaberth Arden Green Tea EDT (I have this for few years, after reading this on Charlotte's blog (lipglossiping.com)
And just for my current skin condition, face mist from Clinque is included to refresh my skin quickly. That's about it for now, will update my bag as I finish these.

So what do you put in your bag daily?



Daily Routine - Make Up

It has been a while since I first began to put make-up on everyday. From learning how to draw a good eye-line to conceal any faults on the skin, I have read a lot and believed to use different products.

But really, less is more and now I have learnt to use as minimal as I can. These are the ones that currently I am using. Some to me are just okay, hoping to finish off, some, on the other hand, are my favourites currently.

Foundation (not always)
Mineral Powder (or loose powder) / Foundation compact
Bronzer (ideally matte)
Kohl eyeliner/ Cream eyeliner
Brow pencil/ powder
Pink/ Champagne Eye Shadow
Lip Gloss/ Coloured Lip Balm

My current favourite is the Maybelline Dream concealer, which I wish to buy another one, but don't think I have seen it anywhere in shop, does anyone know?
Clarins Lip Gloss and Burt's Bee Lip Balm, both are good which hopefully I will write about them later on.
And that it was so shocking that it was so difficult to find a matte (or at least not very shimmering) bronzer, unless you go for more branded ones like Nars or MAC, the one that I got from Korres in Raffle City was super cheap. S$10 for a 11g compact, that's even more than the Bourjoris Bronzer that I am intending to buy from ASOS!


Kanebo Sale and Franc Franc Closing Down Sale

After moving back to HK for 2 years and now in Singapore for 2 weeks, the first thing that I need to get used to quickly is that there wouldn't be my usual shopping places.

Yes, in Asia, they have the equivalent of Boots and Superdrug, and that the local equivalent, Guardian and Watsons' are partially owe by the same companies, as far as I believe; and that we have Sasa, which sells both Western and Japanese as well as Korean cosmetics, but the offer here in Asia wasn't as generous as the time when I was back in England... 


Enough of price comparison.

I heard that there is a Kanebo sale, stocking Kate, Lunasol &, Impress (I.C), and also RMK as well as Kao products (strangely), at UE Square yesterday and today. So, as an excuse to explore around the local area before obtaining a permanent job, I went there today. 

I was not a huge fan of Lunasol Eyeshadow palette, but I think they're not expensive at S$35 per palette and single shadow at S$22. I only bought a brow pencil refill at S$12, and it's actually my first Lunasol product, quite looking forward.
 Kate eyeshadow palettes are around S$10-12 while mascara set at S$12. Foundation compact at S$12 and case at S$7.

Essential travel size are S$3 for 2 and a free hair mask sample to take home.

Then I went to Franc Franc, one of my favourite furniture shop, and it is sad to see it leaving Singapore, just right at the time I come in. 
Most of their goods are gone at JCube, Jurong East, only say, around 1/5 of the store left. I bought a hand made soap at S$3.5, Ume favoured (really!) toothpaste at $1 and a room fragrance for $12. They have a small piles of plates and glasses, some candles and bottles of bath salt left, so if interest, go there soon!

Franc Franc

Coming Back

I have vacant this space for awhile and I have picked up my interest.
Hence, please look forward to my new post!
