My Beauty Picks For Spring 2011

Good morning ladies, how’s the weekend been? Fully recharged? I had a rather relaxing weekend, as always. Did the laundry and tidied up several posts on the blog – a lot more to go!! Replied emails and spent rest of the free time watching DVDs. I figured it would be great to drive away the Monday blues with this post, a light read on products I have hand-picked for this Spring. Items I would love to try and buy, some new and some have been around for a long time.

 Let’s start with the NARS Spring 2011 Collection. If you are staying in Singapore, you would know it’s pretty impossible to try and buy NARS here because there isn’t one. So, we rely mainly on beauty blogs to determine the hues and quality of products we are after, right? I would love to get the Nouveau Monde Duo Eyeshadow, Super Orgasm Lip Gloss and Desperado Nail Polish from this collection. Not a long list at all.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact is something I have been longing to get but never got. Why? I don’t know.

One of the next foundation I would love to try is the Givenchy Photo Perfexion. And I want to pair this foundation with an award-winning loose powder, the Givenchy Le Prisme Libre. Givenchy is such a beautiful brand which not many know. It’s such a shame that not many talk about their wonderful products either. This Spring, Givenchy will be releasing new products such as the Blush Gelée which I can’t wait to try too.

Bobbi Brown made their new range of lipsticks sound so delicious. I think adding one or two Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour SPF 12 to my stash would be lovely, don’t you think so?

And lastly, Burberry Beauty is coming to Singapore. It’s said to be made available at beauty halls in January 2011 but there is still no signs of them. Would have to wait a little longer, probably a delay with HSA registration and all the paper works behind importing a beauty line? However, the wait wouldn’t stop my craving for exploring this new line of beauty products. Am zooming in on the eyeshadows, blushers and lipsticks. An article on Burberry Beauty, including the price list coming right up.

What are your beauty picks this season?

  1. Hi Joey,
    On my list the Givenchy Blush gelée and Bobbi Brown Rich lip colour too.
    High beam from Benefit seems to be a good highlighter and I need one.
    I’ve got my eyes the new YSL duo nail polish from the collection Boheme Libertine. The blue is soooo cute! Also love their new eye shadow palette. The pink is just gorgeous!
    I’m searching for a peach blush and finally I’d like to try Shiseido new foundation. What a list…

  2. Your welcome ;)
    Yes the list is growing… always! But luckily some products aren’t as good as the advertising.
    I’ve swatched the Givenchy Blush gelée. The colour is pretty, a fresh pink. But the texture isn’t easy to use and takes a lot of time to dry.

  3. Joey, you should try BB Rich Lip in fuschia ( the only bright & vivid shade in the entire collection, I don’t remember the exact shade name, but it looks great in terms of texture & colour pay off when swatched on the back of my hand.
