marc jacobs highliner blacquer

I was so excited when Marc Jacobs Beauty arrived in our local Sephoras as I have read a lot of raves on a few products. I picked up the Genius Gel Foundation and the Blacquer eyeliner because these were the two products that folks have been talking about. Besides, I’m always on the lookout for a good black, brown or grey pencil eyeliner.

kiehl's fig leaf & sage

I love scents. I may not blog about them often but I do love my fragrances and have pretty much been a perfume lover since I was a teen. From cheap and cheerful to expensive and niche, I have tried or at least sniffed quite a good array of scents over the years. However, I find my taste has evolved as I erm,… grew older and I tend to seek relatively unisex scents in the last few years or so.

I was perusing Kiehl’s a few months back to take a closer look at the fragrances on display. I vaguely remembered the launch of the fragrance line they call Aromatic Blends back in 2012 as I think I received a periodical or email about it. The first one that caught my eye was Fig Leaf & Sage. It sounded herbal and woodsy, the sort of scent I find attractive.

I did sort of debate if I should write about the Tom Ford brushes I got in Australia because they are not available locally. But heck… they are honestly too gorgeous to ignore. I took a 20-minute walk to David Jones the moment I reached my hotel in Melbourne to get these babies. Yes, they are really expensive but a splurge I do not regret.

l'occitane almond shower oil

My friend and fellow beauty blogger, Xin, has been raving about this product for the longest time and I didn’t quite get around to understanding why until recently. Now I can see why she’s completely hooked on this stuff and it’s no wonder she immediately grabbed a couple of bottles on when it was on sale a few months ago. I’m talking about the L’Occitane Almond Cleansing and Soothing Shower Oil (Almond Shower Oil for short) and I am now another fan.
