Must-Haves of 2012

I cant believe how FAST time flies. Its almost the end of 2012! 2012 was a lovely year, especially with my gorgeous cousin Nadia getting married, also my brother got married. , I also got to be on the expert panel for Aesthetics Beauty Guide event, and with the amazing support of all of you, I won the Panasonic Beauty of Empowerment contest.

And not to forget the abundance of new cosmetic brands launched in Singapore this year, the most recent one being NARS Cosmetics! so as we usher in the new year, I thought I’d list some of my favourite products of 2012 , which are must-haves!


Ive blogged about these products through out the year an have been using them non stop.
I simply adore these products and what it does for you, be it for your skin or to gain longer thicker lashes etc.
The blog entry for the specific product will be linked below the images 🙂





Best sponge for cream makeup, in my opinion. I say cream because I love using my chanel brush for liquid foundation and i get a flawless streak-free application each time. You can purchase the beauty blender from or at BHG Bugis/Clementi or online at other websites

Makeup Forever Aqua Shadow Pencils

There honestly isnt a day that I DON’T use my aqua shadow pencils. I love them because they are so amazingly pigmented and are waterproof and smudgeproof so you dont require a single touch up all day!

CoverGirl LipPerfection LipColour

Probably the BEST lipstick around in my opinion! Great array of colours from nudes to bold pinks, and its ridiculously longlasting, smudgeproof, yet still not drying on the lips. Wore them out for my brothers wedding functons and not once did I require any touch ups
