Like the rest of the products under her Fenty Beauty line, the Stunna Lip Paint Uncensored was created to suit women of all skin tones.

I love glowing skin. Even before it was a trend and spawned a whole range of products to achieve that lit-from-within-look, I was sporting radiant skin. The fact that my first foundation was MAC Hyper Real packed with tiny pearlescent particles should give you an idea just how crazy I am about looking like I have an internal lighting system. So it should be no surprise that I picked up the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel highlighter. The most hyped of this summer. Did I like it? It was love at first swatch! And here’s why I love it even more each time I use it.

On the bus, in the train, at cafes and restaurants the women I observed (all while trying not to look like I was staring) seemed like they didn’t spend too much time or effort on hair, makeup or dressing up.

When K-beauty brand Mamonde first landed in Singapore, the only way to get our hands on their products bursting with botanical benefits was to order it via Lazada.com. However, old-school me prefers being able to feel the textures, sniff the scents and swatch the colours – the last one being particularly important since I’ve got medium-warm toned skin. Which is why I was delighted to know that the brand had opened it’s first ever store in Singapore at Tangs VivoCity.
