[Makeup] Laneige Neo Foundation Matte

It’s been more than 20 months since mask wearing was made mandatory in public areas for Singapore.

As mentioned in my previous makeup posts, my makeup needs have changed as I focused more on makeup products that are mask-friendly. For me, mask-friendly makeup means it does not stain my mask easily.

Recently, Laneige launched a new product <Neo Foundation Matte/Glow>. This product is part of the NEO series that Laneige had introduced last year, with the first product being the Neo cushion.

I purchase the product back in August when there was a promotion for the Foundation Set.

Perfect Diary could be unfamiliar to some, but it is one of the rising beauty brand from China. I had seen this brand on both the Taobao app and Shopee SG apps but never came around trying their products.

[Makeup] L’Oréal Base Magique Primer

NOTE: When it comes to beauty products, I am an avid explorer. I am not against the idea of trying out new products/brands; especially when I feel that the existing product no longer works for me.

However, there is particular product that I SWORN by. I had been using this product since a decade ago and I still love it. I had mentioned the same product on one of my previous posts.

[Makeup] Maybelline Superstay Matte liquid lipstick

When the Singapore Government decided to mandate mask wearing, one of the saddest part for me was that I can no longer wear lipsticks that could potentially be as dark as my soul. 🤣 Not because I couldn’t, but I thought it was pretty unhygienic to have the lipstick colour sticking onto my mask should I wear them.

It was a weird feeling honestly to go without a lipstick at work… And sometimes, my colleagues even asked if I am feeling unwell since I looked paler than usual.

However, thanks to a friend who had introduced me to a new lipstick product, I am back to wearing lipsticks at work.

[Makeup] Etude House Eyeshadow – Maple Road

2020 was supposed to be an awesome leap year but instead the world is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, where we have been living with it for close to 6 months.

For Singapore, strict laws have been put in place where everyone is expected to wear a mask once they are in public areas. If one is caught without a mask in public, you will be fined or in extreme cases; jailed.

Given that mask wearing is part of the routine now, I started to giving myself excuses not to use my cushion/foundation as they will stain the masks, which makes my mask unhygienic (the counter argument would be there there are now products that are mask friendly, which I will talk about in a separate post in the near future). What I generally focused on in terms of my make up are (1) eyebrows and (2) eyelids.

[Makeup] Laneige Layering Lip Bar

Laneige is a rather well known brand that can be found widely in Singapore. Few years ago, they launched a lipstick that was dual tone, which I really liked as I ended up buying a lot of the lipsticks in different shades.

In 2019, Laneige launched their layering lip bar, which consist of 6 colours in the same lipstick. The 6 layers was to help create the gradient effect using one swipe.

[Makeup] Fenty Beauty, Mattemoiselle

Founder of Fenty Beauty, Rihanna; launched a new product for her makeup brand over last Christmas and the hype continues till today.

The product that RiRi launched was the Mattemoiselle, a lipstick that encompass a matte finish but it’s also provides moisture to your lips. The product must have been well liked as a number of shades were unavailable whenever I visit the Sephora stores in Singapore.

While it’s true that Fenty Beauty is a relatively new player in the makeup industry, it is still a popular brand these days. With a total of 50 (yes 50!) shades of foundation and marketing themselves as a brand any woman out there could use, regardless of their skin color, Fenty Beauty have definitely gotten my attention.
