Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre

I've had a bit of a blogger's block recently, my bad! Hopefully, I get back on track with this post. It's only a short post but definitely a product worth writing about! With all this cold windy weather happening right now, my skin's been more on the dry combination side (I've been noticing dry patches on my nose, forehead and cheeks...uh oh!). My tube of Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre has been sitting on the shelf for a while now since I find that it is a bit too rich on my skin during the warmer months, making my skin feel too oily for my liking, but this has been such a life-saver for my dry skin lately! My dry skin drinks it up immediately and feels more hydrated .... dry patches be gone! Not only is this cream a good moisturiser, it can also be used as a primer, make-up remover and also helps to reduce irritation on the skin caused by shaving. It is an emollient oil and contains a combination of natural active ingredients such as good ol' shea butter, beeswax, aloe vera and soy proteins. It is also paraben-free. There is a slight scent to it (nothing over-powering, quite pleasant actually)...umm... an unscented kinda scent if that makes any sense?? All I have to say is it's definitely a beauty must-have for a good reason!

What's your favourite moisturiser?

Revlon Colorstay One-Stroke Defining Liner

I was recently on the hunt for a dark brown eyeliner, I wanted something less harsh than my usual blackest of black liners. Unfortunately, my favourite brand of long-wear eyeliner, the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil liner, is not easily available in Hong Kong and I tried a lot of high-end brands that just didn't seem to have the smudge-proof factor that I was looking for. So I was in Sasa one day and decided to check out the Revlon section where I found the perfect dark brown. I swatched it, allowed it to dry and then gave it a good rub... hardly budged! Colour me impressed!

Setting Sprays... My Makeup Essential!

The day I discovered the wonders of make up setting sprays was definitely a monumental day in my life! A spray that helps your make up last all day?? Don't mind if I do!

Catrice Cosmetics Ultimate Nudes in 050 Moulin Rouge Light

I picked up this Catrice Cosmetics Ultimate Nudes nail polish in Moulin Rouge Light during my trip to Thailand. I first heard about Catrice Cosmetics through a friend of mine from Germany, she knows I love makeup so for my birthday sent me a bunch of limited edition Catrice goodies for me to try since I've never tried this brand before.

Soap and Glory Glossed For Words Gift Set

I recently took a small trip to Bangkok and on my To Do List was definitely a visit or three to Boots! My don't know how much I miss and love this store! When I was in the UK, I would go into a Boots almost 3 times a week (sometimes more!) and I would always find one thing or another to buy. One of the brands I miss the most is Soap and Glory, so you best know that I stocked up on a few things! I picked up one of the Christmas gift sets - Glossed for Words, which is a 5-piece set of their Sexy Mother Pucker glosses.
