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.
The last beauty product I finished was the Glow Recipe Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm ($52).
The last viral makeup/skincare trend I tried was Beauty of Joseon’s Relief Sun Sunscreen ($18.35), and I must say, I love its lightweight texture.
The last beauty product I bought was the Lavien Pure Vita Toning Ampoule ($188).
The last image I looked at for beauty inspiration was healthy and juicy lips as seen on Pinterest.
The last beauty product I bought again was the Dior Beauty Diorsnow Ultimate UV Shield Skin-Breathable Brightening Emulsion SPF50+ PA++++ ($99).
The last beauty indulgence I treated myself to was a spa facial and body massage at AURIGA Spa at Capella Singapore. I went with my girlfriends as a treat to ourselves.
The last beauty product I made a holy grail was Dior Beauty’s Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil ($59). No matter how many dupes are in the market, no other products come close to this for its performance: the tint, nourishment to the lips, and of course, its beautiful texture that shows especially on camera.
The last beauty product I gifted someone was the Shu Uemura Ultime8∞ Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil ($180). My life coach told me that he often breaks out after putting on makeup for shoots. So, this week we are having a week-long shoot for his next product, and I want to make sure that his face is well cleansed.
It’s a brainless easy-to-use product for people who are not big on their cleansing routine.
The last beauty product that truly impressed me was OLE HENRIKSEN’s Strength HydraBarrier Nourishing Face Oil ($85). I was in Japan this January; it was winter, and the air was super dry. This product saved my skin from cracking.
The last makeup/skincare trick I taught someone was using a toning pad as a quick mask before applying makeup on lazy days or for last-minute rescues. It always works for all skin types. I love using the Jung Beauty Hydra-Barrier Toner ($66) and the Jung Beauty Pure Calming Pad ($18) for this.
