COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence | Review

COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence

If there was one thing I have come to appreciate about Asian skincare, it’s the essences. I honestly feel my regimen’s incomplete without them. I first used the SK-II last year and after finishing off the bottle, I asked my friend to buy me one of COSRX’s from the Skincare Curator. Continue reading

Swatch Day Sunday Vol.20: My Favorite Drugstore Highlighters

Drugstore highlighters

I’ve started amassing highlighters again. What’s new? But this time though, I’ve made time for drugstore highlighters. Remember my beauty resolutions for this year a few posts back? Anyway, some new ones got delivered the other day from @this.and.that.by.k. And I realized I’ve gotten quite the collection from Wet N Wild, hence this photo on Instagram.  Continue reading

I have been one crazy highlighter lady this year. I can’t believe I have accumulated a lot. I think it started late last year with Jaclyn Hill’s Champagne Pop. Anyway, let’s get down to my favorite highlighters I got this year!

Essence Pure Nude Highlighter. I was so glad I managed to snag myself this drugstore gem before the year ends. The hype is real you guys.

HIts of 2016

Just a few more days to go before 2016 comes to a close, can you believe it? Anyway, I usually do the year-end product round up every January of the following year but this time though, I thought I’d do it earlier.

HITS

For me, 2016 was a year of highlighters, liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes. Those 3 basically littered my vanity table from drugstore brands to high end products.

Korean Skincare Wishlist

A new addiction is creeping up on me guys. I can feel it. It all started with the revelation that Asian skincare is loads better than majority of the western brands for my skin.

Where did this come from you may ask. Well, I was very much influenced by a close friend  who has been my shopping buddy and no.1 enabler since medical school. She’s on Instagram as @kimchiandsnails, so go follow her if you’re a fan of Asian beauty, I command you. Now let me show you some of the brands or products I’ve already got my eyes on.
