FOTD: February 29, 2016

Happy Leap Day aka February 29! 😀 I posted my Face Of The Day (FOTD) on Instagram today and decided I would post the full list of products on the blog! 😀 For eyeshadow I used all the shades in the Integrate palette as well as “Bust” and “Guilt” from the Urban Decay palette to create a plummy pink eye look. The Tarte primer doesn’t completely conceal the redness on my face so I topped it off with the Maracuja Creaseless concealer which is ah-maazing. The only downside with the concealer would be the huge opening. I always tend to squeeze out more product than needed. Boo.

I also tested out the Lancome L’Absolu Velour for the first time and it’s everything I wanted and more. Full review coming soon! The rest of the makeup used are my usual favourites. High Beam is undoubtedly one of the best liquid highlighters for fair skin in my opinion. I just dot it on my cheekbones and blend it out with the micro beauty blender. The end result? A beautiful lit-from-within glow. 😀

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Pablo review

Hi everyone! I took a little break in January but now I’m back! Expect more reviews on the blog and photos on Instagram (@mybeautymusings) in the coming months! 😀 Now on to the review! As a beauty junkie, I always want to try the most hyped up products, and Tom Ford lipsticks were no exception. With everyone in the beauty community singing praises about the lipsticks, I bit the bullet and bought myself one.

Tom Ford Pablo lipstick review and swatches

If you are not familiar with the Tom Ford makeup line, the lipsticks are said to be the “Hermès” of lipsticks. The best of the best. The colour I bought was Pablo ($50 SGD) from the Lips & Boys Collection. The Lips & Boys Collection features a range of limited-edition clutch-sized lip colors (aka mini lipsticks) named after the characters in Tom Ford’s life. Lipsticks in this Lips & Boys collection contains a mere 0.07 oz compared to the usual full size range which contains 0.1 oz. Nevertheless, it’s a great way to try the lipsticks. 🙂 Keep Reading »

Random Musings: KATE SPADE REOPENING and MEETING ANDREA CHONG!

Today’s post is something different. It’s not about makeup. 😛 Instead, it’s dedicated to the reopening of Kate Spade at Raffles City. I’m not a fashion blogger by any means but I love love love Kate Spade so much so that I wanted to dedicate an entire blog post to it. I have always been attracted by the brand because of their girly and whimsical feel as well as their vibrant prints. I own their wallets and bags, both of which have lasted me a very long time. I don’t mind spending a little more on a bag that would last me years, compared to one that would last for just a few months. So it’s no surprise when Andrea Chong invited her readers to the reopening of the newly renovated Kate Spade Raffles City store, I jumped at the chance to attend it! Besides, Andrea will be hosting the event! #fangirl 😀

Now, let’s take a tour of the store!

Love the bright pinks and corals! Or if you’re not a fan of bright colours, there’s always the classic black bag you can never go wrong with!

Crisp colors, graphic prints, and playful sophistication that are the hallmarks of Kate Spade New York

“She loves sweets and sparkles.” That’s me.

Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

When I first laid my eyes on the Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette ($62 SGD) at Sephora, I felt my breath catch, and it seemed like the palette was calling my name. “Regina… Regina…” Ok, I exaggerate. But you get my point. 😉
