MAC Hint of Colour Lip Oil review

Review: MAC Hint of Colour Lip Oil

MAC recently released four Hint of Colour Lip Oils in Asia, to the moaning and hair tearing of MAC fans outside Asia. I managed to pick one up when I was in Seoul a few weeks ago, and after trying it out for quite a while now, I can say this: You don’t need to tear your hair out over this little tube. Read on for the MAC Hint of Colour Lip Oil review.READ MORE

Zoeva highlighter and eyeliner brush review

Two weeks, two brushes: Zoeva

Believe it or not, I bought my first two Zoeva brushes this year. I know. It’s like I’ve been living under a rock. But as I’m still on my quest for a highlighter brush that suits my needs (have a look at the former installments in this little series and you’ll see what I mean), I picked up the Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight, and the 312 Detail Liner as an afterthought. I had just bought the Essence Cushion liner I wrote about here, and it seemed like a good point to try a new eyeliner brush. Go on reading for my Zoeva highlighter and eyeliner brush review.

Link(love): Favourite blogposts and articles in March

Your monthly news of the beauty world (feat. Kat von D, MAC and Catrice this time around). Also the one where I share my favorite posts and articles about beauty (of course), and everything else. This month, you might have a peek at a feud over snail mucus (really!), how monks tried to cure the plague in the middle ages and came up with a cosmetics line that is still around today (really!!!), why minimalism is stupid and a brilliant portrait of the daily life of various Instagram influencers by Vogue that manages to be neither snidely arrogant nor condescending, but is totally on point. Have a look at my favourite reads lately.

A beauty addict in China: Beauty shopping in Shanghai

There’re many highs and lows in the life of an expat, and while living in Shanghai has many perks, beauty shopping definitely isn’t one of them. Especially not for a die-hard beauty addict. On the surface, it doesn’t look that bad – in Shanghai’s enormous shopping malls, there’s usually a Sephora or drugstore, and there’re also a lot of free-standing stores of the big Western beauty brands, and some Korean ones as well. But. There’re a lot of buts, actually.

Hakuhodo i-series review

Two weeks, two brushes: Hakuhodo i-series

Let’s carry on with our little “two weeks, two brushes” series, shall we? I got two new Hakuhodo brushes the last time I was in Singapore. Because… well, who can restrain themselves when standing in front of a Hakuhodo counter? Not me! This time, both brushes from the i-series and I had a somehow rocky start. Here’s my Hakuhodo i-series review: An in-depth look at both eyeshadow (i-127) and blush (i-110) brush from the synthetic Hakuhodo brush line.
