  • Cannot Resist The Curls (Review of the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler)
    on Aug 26, 2015 in Hair Hairstyle
    I have typical straight Asian hair but mine is not thick but rather quite thin. To build some body into my hair, I’ve done almost everything and tried many, many products. I’ve even gone down the perm route at a few points in my history.
  • Now that was some blogging break!
    on Aug 17, 2015 in Uncategorized
    Holy smokes, I knew it had been a while since I posted last but nothing since April? Is anyone reading this anymore? I hope so. I spent my break reflecting, regrouping and refocusing. Now I’m ready to reinvent LipstickRules – and myself.
  • Mani of the Day: Essie’s Fun in the Gondola
    on Apr 16, 2015 in Essie Nail Polish
    I was looking for a pastel nail polish colour and Essie’s Fun in a Gondola caught my fancy. I didn’t think I had anything quite like this dusty pink in my collection so it ended up in my basket. It’s such a pretty colour. This crem...
  • These Bobbi Brown Lipsticks are Hot!
    on Apr 15, 2015 in Bobbi Brown Lipstick
    Winter has finally gone away in my part of the world. Something that cheered up during that last stretch was Bobbi Brown’s Hot Collection. The collection includes an eyeshadow palette, lipsticks, blush palettes (I bought one which I will share...
  • A Burst of Coral!
    on Apr 14, 2015 in Maybelline
    Over the winter, I wholeheartedly embraced the vampy lip from the dark reds to the berry tones. But there’s something about the change in season that makes me want to wear corals and the lighter pinks. I have a bunch of products that fall into...
  • An ‘accidental’ Dior haul
    on Apr 13, 2015 in Dior
    It was an accidental haul. It really was. I only meant to ask a question about a foundation. But before I knew it, I was sitting on the makeup chair, products were being applied, and there was laughter, oohing and aahing, and chatter. I was a goner.
  • LipstickRules: A New Look in the Works
    on Mar 29, 2015 in Uncategorized
    Hey folks. Now that it’s spring, I felt it was time for a revamp of LipstickRules. I’ve been blogging for six years, and I feel like it’s time for another refresh. I wanted something clean and fresh and found this great template fro...
  • New Favourites: Bobbi Brown, NARS, Becca and Bite Beauty
    on Mar 2, 2015 in Becca Bite Beauty Bobbi Brown nars
    I am tired of winter. Apparently, in my part of the world, February was the coldest month EVER with temperatures below -20 degrees Celsius for the majority of the month. Brrrrrr. Thank goodness for beauty bits that helped distract me from the frigid...
  • Call me Dragon Girl
    on Feb 25, 2015 in nars
    Dragon Girl from NARS has been on my wish-list for a long, long, time. It’s one of my recent acquisitions, and I’m a happy camper. It is absolutely, positively, gosh-darnit, beautiful. As soon as I put it on, I had one of those moments. I...
  • Lipstick Love: Baiser Velours from Lise Watier (Review and Swatches)
    on Feb 24, 2015 in Lise Watier
    Ever go into a drugstore to pick up essentials, and end up getting distracted in the makeup aisle, and ultimately hauling way more than you intended? Yes? Whew, I’m glad I’m not alone. A few weeks ago, it happened to me while at Shopper&#...
  • A Look At Clarins Extra Comfort Foundation (Review)
    on Feb 22, 2015 in Clarins Foundation
    Most women can get by with having one foundation in their routine. That is the normal way of doing things. I, on the other hand, fall into an entirely different spectrum with 7, yes 7 foundations, in my repertoire. Addicted much? For years, I’v...
  • Tales from a new skincare junkie – thanks to Caroline Hirons
    on Feb 9, 2015 in skincare Skincare
    When it comes to skincare, I thought I had it all figured out. After all, I wash my face every night, moisturize my face and neck every day and wear sunscreen the majority of the time. I also dabble in exfoliating and masks once and while. What else...
  • Glowy with a Chance of Fuchsia
    on May 13, 2014 in Joe Fresh Cosmetics
    Well, hello there.  It’s been a while hasn’t it? Life took over and I have to say it was nice to take a break from writing. Makeup wise, I’ve I’ve been trying to sport a different look every day. I do the same with clothes an...
  • Hello, Lodhi

    I recently bought NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil as part of the Sephora VIB sale, and I attribute this purchase due to what I call BBI, Beauty Blogger Influence. Yes, indeedy, thanks to the advice and reviews of fellow beauty bloggers like Sunny, this l...
  • It was Shopping Fate: MAC’s Red Balloon (Limited Edition)
    on Apr 27, 2014 in mac
    Ah, MAC, you got me this time.  So much for my willpower. I was doing so well at being much more selective about my makeup purchases, and not falling for every single Limited Edition (LE) collection released by one of my favourite brands. But this w...
  • Inspired by Kate
    on Apr 15, 2014 in L'Oreal L'Oreal Paris
    I’ve been obsessed over the royal tour currently taking place  in New Zealand and Australia. I can’t get enough of Kate, Wills, and of course, little Prince George. Today, I was inspired by Kate’s makeup i.e. heavier eyeliner, lots...
  • Do you have an Everyday Lipstick?
    on Apr 10, 2014 in Revlon
    Do you have an ‘everyday’ lipstick?  I wish I did. I tend to gravitate from one lipstick to another, falling in and out of love with various colours and formulas. But there are lipsticks in my collection that would fall perfectly into th...
  • Spring Lips courtesty of Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya
    on Apr 9, 2014 in Revlon
    The rediscoveries continue this week, this time, a Revlon Lip Butter. I’ve had a long-standing love affair with Lip Butters — I love the texture, and the colour impact they leave on the lips. It feels like you’re wearing lip balm bu...
  • Rediscovered: NARS Madly
    on Apr 7, 2014 in Clinique nars
    I bought NARS Madly blush years ago, purely based on a review by Laura. While I admit I’ve been distracted by other blushes lately, Madly is by far one of my favourite blushes ever. According to NARS, Madly is described as a “soft focus s...
  • Hello Lip Lover! Review of Lancome’s Rose Ballet Lip Lover #313
    on Apr 4, 2014 in Lancome
    Whatever happened to the days when a lipstick was a lipstick,and a lipgloss was simply that, a lipgloss? These days, the hybrid lip gloss/lip balm/lip stain products are all the rage, and every brand under the sun is coming out with products that pro...
