We all have things that we lust after despite having a large collection. Here are mine. All prices listed in SGD. Affliate links denoted with a *
- Eccentric Cosmetics Long Wear Primer, $11, sample also available, $3. Very wallet friendly price, very good reviews. I will support indie brands where I can.
- NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl, $37. The red lipstick of my dreams, forever eluding me because I bought it twice and lost it both times. Matte, long lasting, eye-searingly red.
- Besame Cosmetics Lipstick in Red Velvet, $27. Channeling my inner Agent Carter and vintage pin up girl. Supposedly super long wearing and absolutely beautiful.
- Besame Cosmetics Vanilla Brightening Face Powder, $27. It smells like vanilla, DO I NEED TO SAY MORE? I do have enough powder for like the next 5 years though 😦
- Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation, shade 213, $80. Very expensive, but very olive, and appears to be the perfect NC20 olive foundation that I’ve been searching for.
- Banila Co Miss Flower & Mr Honey Essence Oil*, $27.50. Idk about the efficacy of this, frankly. Most reviews I have seen just said that it feels and smells awesome and is quite nourishing. I guess $27.50 is not too bad to spend on 30mls of an essence/oil like that.
- OST C20 Original Pure Vitamin C Serum*, $17. Yes, this is a VITAMIN C SERUM for $17!!! No more crazy expensive stupid Skinceuticals for $100++. I know that some chemists have weighed in on some problematic aspects of the formulation of this, but many people appeared to have good results and I’m willing to give it a shot. Bad thing is that it can only be used around 3 months before oxidizing, which means $68 a year purely on Vitamin C. Noooooo.
- CosRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask*, $16. Seriously, in Singapore, it’s not easy to find a great moisturizer for under $20. I think even the Olay and Loreal ones are more than that, which makes this one from CosRX all the more attractive. Put some propolis on your face!
- CosRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask*, $16. Frankly I take months to use up 50ml of moisturizer, so I only need one of the two, but this also has very good reviews.
- Careprost, ~$20. Everybody wants incredibly long and luscious lashes, right? This is supposedly the generic version of $200 Latisse. I’m just wondering how much money I’m willing to spend a year on long eyelashes. Is 1 bottle enough to last me 3 months, which makes the yearly cost $80?
