Sara Happ’s The Pink Slip One Luxe Gloss – the best lip gloss in the world.
I’m going to straight up say this, that if there ever was a lip gloss in the world that one could marry, the Sara Happ The Pink Slip One Luxe Gloss would be it. This gloss is nothing short of amazing and here’s why.
The gloss itself is of a regular size (6ml) and it comes packaged in a nice metallic gold box. It delivers a gorgeous pink tint when applied and the colour lasts for many hours on end. It is also the most moisturising lip product I have ever owned. For a longtime beauty blogger like me to declare this, it says a lot about this product. It even beats other lip balms out there hands down. It has given me no allergic reaction, but instead soft plump lips with no flakiness. Even dead skin on my lips magically disappear by the time evening comes and I’ve had a whole day of wear. I swear, you don’t even need a lip scrub once you’ve discovered this product.
It’s not easy to come up with new designs when thinking up something for your nails. There are just so many brands, colours and finishes out there that stopping by Sephora can be quite a task. If you’re looking for something fresh, fun and that you’ve never thought of before, you might like to take an inspiration or two from these nine blogs, which I think are the best nail blogs out there right now.
1. A.J. from Nail Lacquer UK teaches us how to get Louboutin-esque nails. If you sharpen the tips more than what she does, I think you’ll make some pretty fine talons.
I discovered these gorgeous glosses quite by accident, when I was shopping for a gift for my mother, actually. If you shop for makeup and you love makeup, then you must know how distracting it is when you’re surrounded by nothing else but makeup – and a very professional makeup artist.
I requested to try on a shade or two, can’t remember which ones, but man was I sold the moment I saw the finished look on my lips. In today’s post, I feature two of my current favourite glosses, the Chanel Aqualumière High Shine Sheer Concentrate Lip Gloss in 91 Tutu and 69 Glass Quartz.
Contouring is all the rage right now, and some people have even taken it a notch higher by introducing baking to the world. But what about the rest of us mere mortals who simply do not have that much time to master these techniques, or just plain don’t see the need for all that piling on of makeup?
In today’s Classic Hollywood Makeup tutorial, I teach you how you can achieve the classic Hollywood glam look without all of that. What you need are the following:
Dior‘s Diorshow Forever Compact Foundation SPF 25 PA++
Dior‘s Blush in 756 Rose Cherie
Urban Decay‘s Naked 3 Palette (Available it on Nordstrom here.)
Maybelline‘s HyperSharp Wing Eyeliner
Majolica Majorca‘s Lash King Mascara
Guerlain‘s Meteorites in 3 Medium
Julie Hewett‘s Belle Noir Lipstick (applied with a lip brush)
It’s the time of the year when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on again! To save you some precious time – lord forbid anyone else getting to the items before you! – I’ve selected some beauty exclusives from the sale event which you’ll be happy to bag.

A couple of weeks ago on the blog, you saw the GlamPact up close and personal. Today, I’m sharing a tutorial on how you can use the GlamPact by Glam-It! to look glam on the go. Everything I use in this tutorial are from my own customised GlamPact, where the shades and product modules were selected by me beforehand. To find out how you can customise your own GlamPact, you can head on over to my blog review here.
If you were a 90’s girl, you’d definitely have heard of Polly Pocket. I’m not sure if girls these days still get it for Christmas but back in the day, it was my favourite toy. And quite recently, the GlamPact by Glam-It! has taken me back to the times when I marvelled at the lights and moving ducklings in my old Polly Pocket.
The GlamPact was launched a few years ago in Hong Kong by beauty maven Jennifer Cheng, and it was only in the past few months that the compact had undergone a refreshing makeover. No longer black, the new GlamPact is now pretty in baby pink and has new individual makeup modules that you can select for your very own customisable GlamPact.
Sit tight for my Depend GelLack Review. You’ll want to read it.
Fans of gelish rejoice. I’ve been introduced to a safer and long-lasting alternative, known as the Depend GelLack, which you can do on your own in the comfort of your home.
I’ve never done gel manicures because of all the horror stories I’ve heard about having them removed after a few weeks. Your nails are thinned, dry and brittle and you can’t apply anything on them afterwards. However, the Depend GelLack kit and polishes go easy on your nails, so that you can have colour that doesn’t chip off.
I repeat, it doesn’t chip off. At all. Let’s take a moment to let that sink in for a while.
I hope you’re all having a magnificent Monday. If you’re considering changing your look into something more colourful than usual and yet not overly dramatic, I filmed this tutorial to show you how you can create a rocker chic makeup look with nude glossy lips.
In this tutorial, I show you how you can contour the sides of your nose bridge using a shade from the same eyebrow palette from Heavy Rotation (read the review on the Powder Eyebrow & Nose Shadow here). You’ll also see how using a wet brush to apply eyeshadow is kind of like using an eye primer – it increases the intensity of the colour instantly. Here’s the list of products used:
If you’re not used to applying makeup on a daily basis but would like to try it, I made a video tutorial on how you can achieve this simple everyday look. It’s something that adds a little bit of colour to your skin but not too much, so that you don’t feel too overwhelmed when you’re just starting out. I know how scary it can be trying makeup out for the first time!
In this tutorial, there’s no contouring and all that fancy schmancy things that are reserved for the red carpet. I feature a simple Nude Smoky Eyeshadow Trio palette from Bourjois and the new Volume Glamour Effet Push Up mascara from the brand as well. Here’s the entire list of products used, in the order of application:
