This post is kinda overdue, considering the fact that it is already mid-December! Time fliesssssss! But hey, better late than never!
1) Bath and Body Works ‘Leaves’ Candle
I am absolutely obsessed with Bath and Body Works candles! I have heard many youtube gurus rave about Bath and Body Works, but they do not have an outlet in Singapore! So when I saw an online shop opening a spree for Bath and Body Works, I immediately jumped in and started buying! I bought a truckload of 3-wick and mini candles, and by far my most favourite is the Leaves candle! Bath and Body Works describes the candle as: “Like an afternoon spent jumping in a pile of freshly fallen leaves, this fragrance embodies all the richness of the season and features a medley of ripe delicious apples, red berries and golden nectar.” I have been burning it in my room and it smells heavenly!
2) Taylor Swift’s ‘Wonderstruck’ perfume
Speaking of scents, I bought this perfume at the beginning of the year, and I have to admit I bought it on impulse at duty free. When I brought it home and took a whiff of it, I hated the scent. For some reason, the smell did not appeal to me and kinda made me sick! Just last month, I decided that since I paid good money for this perfume, I’m gonna force myself to use it. So I did. I pinched my nose and sprayed it on myself. Towards the middle of the day, I started to fall in love with the scent! I guess it oxidized enough, and it smelt lovely! I even got many compliments on the scent, and I’ve been using it daily ever since! The official website describes the scent as: “In this fragrance, a charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits kisses a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence.”
3) MAC’s Eye Kohl in ‘Smoulder’
I’ve recently been very into using eyeliner pencils. I’ve always used liquid felt-tip eyeliner pens because I feel that they are just so easy to use. However, they can look very harsh on the eyes. When I want a softer look, I would switch to eyeliner pencil. And my favourite by far would have to be MAC’s eye kohl in ‘Smoulder’. It is extremely soft and creamy, making it very easy to put on, and also very easy to blend!
4) OPI’s Skyfall
I bought this straight after watching Skyfall. C’mon, who doesn’t love James Bond?! I gotta admit that I don’t really fancy all the colours. All that the colours are ugly, just probably not really my style. But my favourite is Goldeneye! It’s a very pretty gold sparkly shade. But unlike other glitter/sparkle polishes, this one isn’t hard to remove at all!
5) Cellulose Sponge
I know! I know! How weird right?! But lemme tell you this, this little sponge works wonders!!! I have been using this in the shower with my facial wash and it makes a whole load of difference! I use it once a day, usually at nights, and gently rub it over my skin in circular motions. It really thoroughly cleanses your pores and makes your face much smoother and less prone to breakouts. And the best part?? It’s so inexpensive! I bought a pack of 4 for about a dollar at a drugstore!
6) L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in ‘Hourglass Beige’
I have been using this eyeshadow a lot the past month. The texture of this shadow is weird. Almost like a sort of pressed pigment. But it’s good! It took me a while to get the hang of it, but I realized that the best way to apply this is by just using your fingers. This particular colour is my favourite and I think it is the perfect dupe for Stila’s ‘Kitten’ eyeshadow.
