Top Five Favourites Of The Month – August 2013

My 5 All Time Favourites - 08-2013

Hello everyone, another set of favourites for you — this month’s favourites are very difficult to pick because I have been trying so many products, mostly from Fall collections which have already been reviewed or coming your way very soon.

Keeping this post short, hoping to hear what your favourites are this month.

Shiseido released a range of new lip colours this season, too many favourites for that so I ain’t picking one — instead, I picked their Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in BR 214 Into The Woods*. I think the colours are very beautifully made, quality is top-notch, worth taking a look if you haven’t.

Next, Dior Addict Extreme in 369 Mystic* — gorgeous shade for every day use, formula is moisturizing and gives off a beautiful sheen.

Also from Dior’s Fall collection, this metallic dusty pink-nude nail polish in Destin* is definitely a stunner. Previously reviewed on this blog, you can find more thoughts and swatches in this post.

Based on all the looks I have previously done, if you take a look at the list of products used, you will know I am a huge fan of brow gels. This new NARS Brow Gel in Athens* has been my go-to. Many thanks to Julyen from NARS for picking this shade for me.

On NARS website, it states this shade as Blonde, now, it’s hard to imagine me wearing such a light colour brow gel huh? Should I do an updated brow post?

The only thing I don’t quite like or feel it can be improved is — the brush wand picks up way too much product. I had to dab off excess on the back of my hand or a piece of tissue; which is such a waste of product.

Lastly, courtesy of Clarinsonic Singapore, I got an upgrade!! Instead of my Clarinsonic Mia, I now use Clarisonic PLUS* — I have an entire post comparing the two coming soon. I love the T-Timer, it’s the most useful addition.


I didn’t notice that all products featured this month are provided by brands/companies until I had to label them. Like I always say, I am not paid to write good things about them or even to feature them on my blog. I try to be transparent to all readers of this blog as far as sponsored products thus the disclosure in every post – such as the one below.

Please rest assure that everything I say are true to my thoughts.

Ramblings aside, looking forward to produce more reviews for all of you. Many have previously requested for more skincare posts, I am working on short challenges/round-ups of specific ranges from brands I like — hopefully these posts will give you better knowledge of what the products do and what to expect.

Thank you for reading.
