A couple of weeks back, I have received a range of eyeliners from CLIO Singapore. They are Waterproof Brush Liners, Waterproof Pen Liners and Kill Brown Waterproof Pencil Liner. These CLIO’s iconic bestsellers are now more intensive, more waterproof and longer-lasting than before.

The new improved Kill Black liners (2nd generation) just got even better with a higher concentration of carbon (upped to 7g from 6.8g), a new ink tank container that offers better control and hygienic storage, and a new longer lasting waterproof film formula.

MAKE UP FOR EVER’s New STEP 1 SKIN EQUALIZER Primers

 

Woohoo! Finally Chinese New Year is here! I couldn’t express how stressful I was prior this big festive! There were so much things to do, and with my hectic day job, my usual activities (including blogging) have been neglected. Not intending to do any visiting today hence manage to squeeze some time to introduce you a new product range.

MAKE UP FOR EVER has recently launched a new range of skin-perfecting primers – STEP 1 Skin Equalizer – that is designed to correct skin texture and balance skin color.

“As painters always start with a smooth, perfectly prepped canvas to ensure a perfect end result – make-up artists need unified, flawless even-textured skin as a starting point for perfect make-up results all the time.” – Dany Sanz, Creator and Creative Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER

Priming our face with a primer is essential as it not only keeps our makeup stays all day long but it creates a flawless canvas for our foundation. This new STEP 1 Skin Equalizer by MAKE UP FOR EVER goes beyond preparing the skin for makeup, each new primer is an equalizer that helps to balance the skin tone and texture so as to achieve the desired perfect complexion.

Each of the ten STEP 1 Skin Equalizer is formulated with the Equalizer Complex that consists of these key ingredients :

  1. The Acti Tensor 3D, a marco molecule that redesigns the skin’s texture to blur imperfections and lift the facial contours.
  2. Regeactive, a vegetable sugar that boosts cellular renewal for a radiant skin tone and appearance.
  3. High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, an ingredient that guards against imperceptible water loss and sheathes the skin in a perfectly invisible hyper-hydrating film.

The ten STEP 1 Skin Equalizer consists of 2 groups – Color Correcting and Texture Correcting Primers.

Vichy Replenishing & Soothing Sleeping Mask

Just a couple of weeks ago, I’ve received the new Vichy Replenishing & Soothing Sleeping Mask, a new addition to Aqualia Thermal series, and it’s claimed to be Asia most-loved sleeping mask.

One of my beauty secrets for a healthy looking skin is to consistently keep my skin hydrated. I find applying sleeping mask overnight is one of the quick ways to boost my skin hydration.

So why do we need to apply it overnight? It is because during the day, our skin is in a defending mode to fight off external environmental aggressors. And only during the night, our skin goes into repair, replenish and renew mode, hence it is the best time to infuse our skin with nutrients.

In fact, I love using sleeping mask during the long-haul or overnight flights as it helps to avoid skin dehydration. I will usually cleanse my face (leaving no makeup and residue) before boarding the plane and apply a thick layer of the sleeping mask after the plane takes off.

[Review] – Thermage TOTAL TIP, My Yearly Skin Tightening Treatment

 

Woof! Time really flies doesn’t it? Can’t believe I’m already in my late 40s this 2015. I must say I’m terrified of looking old.

I can’t deny aging is inevitable. Unlike most of my peers who prefer botox as the quick fix to look younger, I prefer a treatment that can boost my skin’s natural production of collagen to help turn back the clock.

The ultimate beauty treatment that has proven to stimulate my collagen production and take years off my face is THERMAGE! It is a safe and proven procedure that not only firms up my sagging skin, it also gives reliable results with minimal to almost no downtime. It effectively increases collagen production and it gives a long-lasting result! I’ve tried all the generations of Thermage before and I must say the latest Thermage TOTAL TIP 3.0 works the best.

About seven weeks ago, I have done my second Thermage TOTAL TIP 3.0 procedure, performed by Dr Israr Wong at Knightsbridge Clinic located at 277A South Bridge Road. My first Thermage TOTAL TIP procedure was done a year ago. It shows amazing results and is my savior to reverse the signs of aging! Thermage has now become my MUST-HAVE yearly maintenance regimen!

Thermage Total Tip 3.0 is a new and improved tip designed for the use on the face, neck and body that aims to deliver as much as twice the bulk heating volume which allows more tissue to be heated to higher temperatures, hence delivering greater results.

A proven, unique radiofrequency treatment, Thermage can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving me a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. It works in just one treatment with little or no downtime and delivers a natural looking result. This safe procedure uses patented, FDA cleared technology that delivers heat into the skin to rejuvenate existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth.
