At GRAZIA Singapore HQ, the old excites us as much as the new and in this weekly column, we ask our fellow friends, industry-goers and beauty aficionados about the last thing they loved be it trends, products, or even the image they looked at when it came to inspiring themselves.
Here, beauty junkie Sophia Ng (@makeup_blogette) shares some of her lasts.
The last beauty product I finished was the Chanel SUBLIMAGE La Crème Lumière ($600). It’s a luxurious light cream that makes my skin smooth & radiant.
The last viral makeup/skincare trend I tried was La Roche Posay’s Uvidea Melt-In Tinted ($51.90). Someone told me about how this is raved on TikTok so I bought it to try. It has a formula that is smooth and creamy which is great for everyday coverage and sun protection.
The last beauty product I bought was Armani Beauty’s Luminous Silk Concealer ($61). One of my top picks for undereye brightening: an amazing formula that stays on well, and doesn’t crease.
The last image I looked at for beauty inspiration was the Chanel Holiday 2023 campaign with its oversized highlighters and eyeshadow palettes!
The last beauty product I bought again was Clé de Peau Beauté’s Brightening Enhancer Veil ($110). It’s one of my all-time favourite primers for evening skin tone. Its formula is smooth, and silky and that rosy pearly pink tint is perfect for my light skin tone.
The last beauty indulgence I treated myself to was a facial treatment at Pure Tincture. The whole experience included a massage and a total discovery of award-winning organic products that you don’t find in regular retail places.
The last beauty product I gifted someone was Valentino Beauty’s Eye2Cheek Blush and Eyeshadow (USD$52; about SGD$71). They are very highly rated and I wasn’t disappointed when I got to try out the products in real life when I was overseas. I had to get one for myself and one for my friend.
The last beauty product that truly impressed me was the Nars Afterglow Liquid Blush ($53). I was impressed by the formula of the product and the pigmentation— it’s easy to wear and blend and doesn’t stain the cheeks. It imparts a flushed glow that’s sexy.
The last makeup/skincare trick I taught someone was to lightly apply bronzer at the sides of the forehead and across the nose for a natural and subtle sunkissed look.
