Happy Year of the Ox! Normally by Chinese New Year, I would’ve had new slippers, a haircut, and maybe some new clothes. However, this year’s Chinese New Year is looking a bit less festive as it used to be, due to no gatherings and all that. I will miss going to Aberdeen Mall with my mom, which is what I usually do every Chinese New Year and buy random fun things from the vendors that put up their stalls. However, a little festive gift did end up in my mailbox – Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex in Large-Size Red Bottle and the Lips in Bloom – Pure Color Envy Lipstick Collection. The red! The gold chrysanthemums!
Summer was over in a blink of an eye and for me, the past few months were probably peak-stressful in terms of life and career. Trying to find some work life balance is much harder than it was during this time. I’ve been stuffing myself with local getaways, spa treatments, some (minor) shopping indulgence, and treating my skin better! I have so much more time to play with my old products.
So when the latest Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair arrived at my door, I embraced the beautiful box it came in and excited for something new to try! I also snapped a picture and send it to my mom, as she is a number 1 fan of this product. [Read more…]
Costume making has officially begun but I promise to keep all the makeup and outfit deets alive on my blog!! I hope I’m not boring you with all these lipstick reviews!
You know it’s summer when there’s sales on all the spring clothing, when there is a long line up for Bella Gelateria, and when bright and attractive makeup collections are out! Every summer, Estee Lauder releases limited edition products for their Bronze Goddess collection. I’ve been eyeing on a few things (like the Summer Glow Multi-Palette.) One of their products for summer 2016 is their Lip and Cheek Summer Glow.
(Should I do more posts that are “for the engineer,” just like my three way black sweater post? I feel like these posts can cater to a lot of people, but I use these products particularly because of my occupation. Let me know!)
Most days I go out without makeup; most days means days I go to work. Mostly, it’s because I don’t want to look over done, and working in an engineering department gives me the advantage of wearing jeans and a hoodie. But, y’know, sometimes I just want to look alive- and I’ve been trying out Estee Lauder Double Wear Waterproof Concealer and a bit of Pure Color Envy Eyeshadow to perk up my eyes behind the frames.
If you work in a tech related field, chances are you may not wear a lot of makeup or none at all. So when products like the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Volumizer comes across my way, this automatically goes as my cheat makeup for work category. Last month I attended a Fall Beauty Preview of the upcoming products from Estee Lauder and I was pleased to receive one of these to play around with. And I’m smitten with it- I carry this in my bag every day!
