Hello sweet sweet Friday!!!! I very much prefer the weekends but if I were to be biased towards 1 weekday - Defo Friday!
Nothing much has been going in this week, except a couple of stressful situations that can potentially change my life 😱 hahahaha okay I exaggerate! I know sometimes I leave you guys hanging but it’s really stuff I can’t share online (yet). Depending on the outcome the various situations, I may be able to share more in the near future. I’ve been sharing everything with Nigel and kept asking him for his thoughts as I feel super conflicted ahhhhh we shall see how it goes.
P.S. Can I just say how much I love the close friends function on igstories!!! I can share with ease
You may have see the latest Innisfree collection all over ig and how everyone is going “So cute!”
It’s this year’s innisfree X Disney Toy Story Limited Edition Collection 💖
A closer look on what’s in each set/tin 👀
How cute are the tins 😍
The Woody Set ($31) contains some of the beauty faves of the brand - Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 2x, No Sebum Powder in Woody packaging and 2 of the Volcanic Color Clay Masks (green & yellow) which are in 10ml deluxe size.
The Buzz Lightyear Set ($37) contains innsifree’s best selling Green Tea Seed Serum and Green Tea Seed Cream, which makes this Set perfect for the fans of their Green Tea range.
You can definitely repurpose the tins to store knick knacks and each tin set also comes with a Toy Story sticker sheet.
All you hand cream collectors, can get this set for $18! Also comes in another set with different designs. I quite enjoy innisfree’s hand creams as the scents are quite different from the usual floral scents that other brands have.
I’m gonna ask Nigel whether he wanna use this My Perfumed Body Miniature Set ($19) as he loves LOVES good scents in his shower gels and innisfree really does good scents. The lotions I’ll keep for myself to smell good hahaha good size for travel 👌🏻
And of course their No Sebum Mineral Powder, the first makeup product I’ve tried from them and many of you would have tried, comes in cute packaging and I’m holding my fave 😍
These are available in stores now! There’s more products under the collection so be sure to check out the full range in all innisfree stores 🎉 Happy shopping!
Won a giveaway from Sigi Skin woohoo that’s all the luck I have from winning stuff like this hahahaha maybe next year I can try again 😂
It’s all 3 of their products, a cleanser, eye mask and chemical sunscreen. Not easy to come out with a skincare brand and it’s owned by a young Singaporean somemore! I read up on them and each product is formulated by a separate korea lab that is best at that category. All the products are made in Korea too!
I’ve only tried the cleanser so far and its name reminds me of the one that liahyoo’s brand has hahaha maybe kale is an up and coming ingredient not just for meals?
Will be sure to share my thoughts on all 3 products after I’ve given sufficient use!
Tried a new palette this week, that @chanclara sent over a couple weeks ago. I don’t think it’s a brand that we are familiar with but I’m always up for discovering new brands and items to love
It’s a 5-in-1 palette from an Indonesia brand Minuet, where you not only get 4 eyeshadows, but also a blush, contour powder, bronzing powder and highlighter!
I used this palette to do a full face, the powders are quite smooth and easy to use. I wouldn’t say it’s super crazy pigmented, but definitely buildable and easy to blend - Which suits most of us more
Blush, light contour (mixed both Zoe & California) and highlight all from the palette.
The blush shade Omy looks quite bright but because the pigment is not crazy, I didn’t have a hard time trying to blend it out. This will show up even on tanner skin which is great!
As for the highlight, it’s a rose gold tone which may be slightly dark on skin fairer than mine. I like an obvious highlight so I don’t mind it that much hahahaha the more blinding the better!
For the eye look, I used Pixie all over the crease and outer 1/2 of the eyelids, deepen the outer v with Ego and used a finger to pat in TJ on the center of the lids for some subtle shine. Then finish off with Ody on inner corners. Done! Easy peasy hahaha and I can definitely create a couple more eye looks with the palette. The face powders are definitely good for the eyes too, so don’t be afraid to mix and match.
This palette is made in Korea, vegan and cruelty-free! It’s a very good palette for travel or to bring along in your makeup kit if you tend to do your makeup after the gym or on the go. You can get it from Clara (@/chanclaraa on ig) and more details on her igstories highlights too 💕
TCL CNY try-ons
Yesterday I went down to try out some of @theclosetlover pieces which are part of their CNY collections! Thank you so much @briannawonggg @bertillawong @stephsoo for inviting me down 😘 hehe always super happy to wear any of TCL’s pieces so I was definitely looking forward to heading down to check out some of the new items that launching online Sunday.
In case you’re wondering, I’m a UK 12-14 and usually wear size XL for TCL! Chubby girl represent 🙈
I wanted to try more but the fitting room queue was starting to grow and I didn’t wanna hog one of it so that more of their customers could try more!
If you’re into floral prints especially, you’ll LOVE all the pieces they have. The whole store felt quite festive hahahaha with the pops of colours and happy prints!
Round one *ding ding ding*
Round 2 💃🏻 hahaha really didn’t try that many! I’m quite selective because I know my body shape and what works for me. No point trying to force into pieces that don’t flatter me even if it’s a popular design.
Anneth Printed Top in Wine
TCL is back with more exclusive prints by @pearlynkmin that’s specially drawn for the brand! This top is the first piece~
I love the straight neckline, its length is just nice to match most bottoms and the print really stands out from the wine shade. It’s lined too! Not too thick for our weather 👌🏻
The back is elastic for a better fit, it’s not a tight elastic band so don’t worry!
If you are in for something brighter, the top comes a cheery yellow too!
Anneth Printed Dress
Second piece that has a lemon print by Pearlyn, yellow print on a white dress.
How cute right 🍋 😍
I love such dresses from the brand and even though I normally don’t go for white pieces, but this print was calling out to me! Just had to give it a go hahaha
It’s lined but still slightly sheer under strong lighting so if you mind it, do wear nude undergarments! I’ll just wear my usual black ones cause it’s okay for me 😂 it also comes with a thin sash if you want more waistline
Anneth Printed Midi Dress
Third piece in Sunday’s collection with hand drawn print by Pearlyn and I think it’s the most popular piece! (So be sure to camp and cart out on Sunday if you wanna get it, it’ll be snapped up quickly)
The print is not loud in any way but there’s just something about it 😍 comes with 2 small pockets on the front for extra cuteness
It has adjustable straps, zipper back and thin elastic band.
I have a thicker upper body so this didn’t look as good on me as I would have liked it to, but that’s on me cause of my tummy area 🙈 had to give it a miss even though I really really wanted to bring it home! I don’t even wear much yellow yet I was sorely tempted by this.
Anneth Printed Sleeved Midi Dress
Forth piece with the special print and this has such a romantic cutting! Plus thicker waistband cutting to give more waistline. Didn’t try this as I know it won’t fit my body shape, snapped this photo to show y’all to keep a lookout for it if this is something you like.
Carola Floral Printed Top
Another piece that’s not my usual style but I couldn’t resist trying it cause...
It’s yellow and I like the print! Took a closer shot to show y’all how clear it is. I’ve bought pieces from other brands that have pretty prints but when seen upclose, were quite blurry. This one is crisp and clear, plus it features a cold shoulder design with thin straps + off shoulder of sorts. I can see myself matching which with jeans or shorts! Even culottes.
Haliana Floral Printed Dress in Tangerine in Tangerine
This dress screams CNY doesn’t it 🍊 yet it will be quite nice for work or for a date!
It’s clinched at the waist and has a skirt flap, but it’s a full skirt inside and has lining so no worries about zao geng when wind blows 🙈
The sleeves are not lined so it’s 若隐若现! Wah I really like this piece leh hahaha and oh yah, the v-neck is not too low-cut as well.
Avinna Sleeved Dress in Wine
Last piece I’ve tried on is actually from the collection that’s already launched online on wed! You girls may know that I like shift dresses and this type with longer sleeves is my go-to as well. They just look quite put together and I can accessorize the outfit very easily.
This dress has a v-neckline than not too low and slightly poofy sleeves
The buttons on the sleeve hems are functional so you can unbutton them and roll up the sleeves if you please.
Fully lined as well. Comes in navy blue too!
I chose this piece to bring home cause I feel like wearing it for CNY hehe can see it with some chunky earrings, cute sandals and shoulder bag. Plus I can definitely wear it for work too!
Thank you TCL again for having me! I’m usually at their Raffles Place outlet as I can pop down after work to take a look while waiting for Nigel to end work.
Oh yes, all the pieces (except last dress) will be launched on their website/app tomorrow! Do check out their ig page and lookbook on FB for more deets. Seems like many people are waiting to order something from this exciting collection so you better chiong once they launch 🙈
