LPB Sept 2010 Favourites

Posted on

September has been a busy month.

In order to keep my skin healthy & glowing despite my hectic schedule, I turned to my trusted Dr Sebagh Supreme Maintenance Youth serum & La Mer eye concentrate. Of course these two cost an arm & a leg, but in my opinion, worth every single penny.

SK II Facial Treatment UV Protector keeps my skin well shielded.

I love soaking myself in a bath whenever I manage to; great for detoxification & relaxation. Jo Malone Red Roses bath oil is a luxurious treat, it revives my senses & scent my bathroom – The world is rosy tinted once I had a good soak in this delicately fragranced bath water. L’Occitane Almond shower oil firms & moisturises, a handy quick fix during shower time.

Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face PK304 ( Carnation, petal pink ) keeps my cheek vitally flushed so that I look human again.  Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye VI720 ( Ghost, silvery lavender ) brightens & illuminates my lids so that my peepers appears sharp & alert. NARS Rajasthan has been nominated again this month as it’s simply too gorgeous to miss. Lancome Definicils Precious Cells mascara keeps my lashes defined & nourished.

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss leaves my  lips soft & lovely ( I bought 3 shades at once, all adorable & universally flattering shades ). When it comes to matte lips, I prefer NARS Pure Matte – a lasting soft matte.

I am wearing Annick Goutal Ninfeo Mio a lot this month. Of course, Proenza Schouler PSP1 in patterned canvas is a treat I well deserved.

Experience the first caring mascara from Lancôme that regenerates the condition of lashes.

Reveal beautifully defined, fuller, and stronger lashes.

Lash fallout is minimized during makeup removal.

Regenerates the condition of lashes.

Lash Densifier Complex – Precious plant cell extract for repair & regeneration.

Anti-lash loss, Fortifying- Madecassoside, an ingredient known for its strengthening properties; Arginine, an amino acid known for nourishment.

Definition, lash-by-lash fullness – Multi-faceted brush designed to deliver optimal amount of product, while delivering lash by lash separation.

With a creamy blend of five waxes and a brush that features both long and short bristles so that every lash is touched and coated, Définicils Precious Cells Mascara delivers a glamorous glossy finish to your lashes while nourishing them.

Lancome Definicils precious cells gives my lashes a gloss sheen. It’s a great mascara for definition & separation of lashes; It also helps lengthening my lashes without clumping ( despite I loaded 3 coats of this for testing purpose ). The texture  runs thinner than most mascara & the bristles are great at depositing mascara evenly to each & every single lashes.

Definicils precious cell is not a volumizing or curling mascara. It lasts about 8 hours on my lashes, with minimal smudging.

Yves Saint Laurent Holiday 2010 Golden Gloss

A decadent collection from YSL, bursting with the ultimate party shade – gold.

Give me golden champagne & golden carat.

RMK Fall 2010

Posted on

Browns for Fall, how ironical? Nevertheless, earthy tones are staples for everyone.

Bright cheeks for Fall? Now that’s something unconventional.

I am fascinated by RMK finely milled, ultra transparent finishing powder that leaves skin looking porcelain fine & polished – like real skin, real great skin!

I think the idea of tinted brow gel is genius, not new but great – especially lighter shades of mahogany/chestnut; Great for this season ” toned down “/” washed out “/barely there brows.
