Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Gingerbread Man

A good liquid and matte lipstick is hard to find. And the Too Faced Melted Matte Long Wear Lipstick is one of them. It goes on opaque in one dip one coat, super long-lasting (through meals and drinks, especially when you stay away from oily food), with a completely matte finish. Does not feel too drying on lips either, and applicator is easy to use for precise strokes. If you are thinking of giving this lippie a shot, no better time to buy the limited edition Gingerbread Man shade. The toasty terracotta shade is very flattering and suits most skin tones; packaging is cute, and smells like fresh-from-the-oven-cinnamon-sprinkled Gingerbread 😋 Available at Sephora.

Shu Uemura X Super Mario Bros, Holiday 2017

Every year when the Christmas season rolls around, Shu Uemura launches a make-up collection inspired by the year’s most influential pop culture icons. There were the fashion-inspired Karl Lagerfeld (Shupette) and Yazbukey launches, the artsy Takashi Murakami ones; and even film auteur Wong Kar Wai’s one year. In 2017, Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros take centrestage as the game makes a huge comeback. But even if you aren’t the sort to be excited over a pixelated computer game character, it would be worth your while to get your hands on this super-cute collection. Apart from the adorable packaging, the palette comprises of both metallic shades and those with fine shimmer. The colours are on-point too: plum, bronze terracotta, gold and nude-pink for the eyes; pink and peach with subtle gold glitter for the cheeks. Perfect accents for a party look. The Dual Stamp-me Eyeliner comes with an oh-so-cute black star stamp at one end, and regular liquid eyeliner applicator on the other. The rest of the collection are classics; like the award-winning lash curler, and Rouge Unlimited …

Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial

When you flip open the box of the Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial, you see the words: I wanted something that didn’t exist…so I made it myself. – Tiffany Masterson, founder Indeed, we haven’t seen formulas quite like Drunk Elephant’s. The Babyfacial exfoliating mask is a potent one with 25% AHA and 2% BHA blend of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric and salicylic acids to smoothen the surface of the skin. The acids are balanced with a mix of chickpea flour, pumpkin ferment, matcha, milk thistle and apple. Once a week, apply a thin layer of the mask on clean skin, leave on for 20 minutes, and wash off with water. It gave my face a slight tingling sensation but it was bearable. Especially when the results are worth it. Immediately after, my skin looked smoother and clearer; the mask got rid of all the patchy dead skin. The acids do leave the skin drier, so make sure your replenish it with a hydrating serum and heavier cream immediately after. Also, if your skin is intolerant, it …

YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture The Mats 

These new Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks by YSL Beaute are saturated in colour. Intensely pigmented in a coat or two, they have a perfectly matte finish, a texture that few solid lipsticks can provide.  So if you have drier lips, best to exfoliate and apply balm before application. The Mats are also super long-wearing and leaves a strong lip stain behind. I applied the lipstick once in the morning and touched up once more after lunch. It remained perfectly in place for the rest of the day. The colours are also bold and beautiful, the kind that will make up for an otherwise bare face.  TBG picks: 222 a burgundy red  219 a juicy bright red 207 a tangerine coral 221 a bright fuchsia pink

Ouai Haircare at Sephora Singapore

There hasn’t been a haircare brand that’s quite as exciting as Ouai (pronounced wa-y) hitting Singapore shores in recent years. For one, celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin – responsible for the styled locks of model A-listers such as Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Karlie Kloss – definitely knows what women with 24/7 non-stop lifestyles and woke-up-like-this faces need to maintain their manes. Unlike these women, you’d probably not have Atkin on your speed-dial. But at least you can have Ouai products on your dresser. Here are the TBG picks: The Dry Shampoo Foam that amazingly doesn’t leave any powder residue on the hair. It goes on as a wet foam which disappears and cleans the hair and scalp as you massage it in. Works best on drier scalps. Great for use while travelling and reviving unwashed hair in a jiffy. Watch to see how it works. The Rose Hair & Body Oil is delicately-scented and a multi-tasker. Just use a small pumps on the ends of hair. Here’s a quick clip of Atkin sharing a beauty tip. ​​
