Shu Uemura Petal Skin Foundation: Pre-launch Invite and Quick Look!

In case anyone missed my post on IG or the website, ShuUemura's Petal Skin Foundation launches in April but will pre-launch on 31 March this Friday at the Shu boutique in ION Orchard.As the name indicates this is a velvet foundation that aims to also give a beautiful glow without looking shiny or too flat and matte. Like a flower petal. The texture is also very airy and light so you don't see noticeable texture on top of your skin, but it still has pretty good coverage.

My Emergency Skincare for Rashes (UGH) and Hair Spruce-up at BLOW+BAR

Waaaaa rashes!!!I HATE it when I get them because your face gets bumpy flushed uncomfortable and red.Then as it starts to die down the layers of cells die and go rigid and start peeling off in sheets. Which is the time when it feels itchy and tight and no makeup will sit on top because every flake becomes visible any time any pigment goes on top.Recently decided to try a pore minimizing toner that I used to love and my skin must have changed quite a bit because after 2 uses rashes came.

A few fragrances in my current rotation

This isn't the season for a ton of fragrance releases but I've suddenly gotten into a bunch of new and old fragrances and I am quite nuts with them.Just this morning I sprayed Dior Hypnotic Poison on my arms. 15mins later I decided I had to spritz Juicy Couture on my wrists. Then before I left the house I decided I wanted to smell something floral so I rolled a bit of Chloé Love Story on the backs of my hands.I am probably trailing toxic fumes behind me now.

Products I'm Plowing Through (Mostly Skincare)

It's not often that I finish products but I sometimes take a quick pic of things I'm about to throw out so I can remind myself what items I actually use the most LOL.I think what gets finished the fastest is without a doubt cleansing waters. I think thorough cleansing is super important and when using liquid removers you should try to soak your cotton pads to maximize breakdown of makeup and minimize rubbing. So I don't skimp on cleansing waters because I use these to remove my eye makeup.
