Beware of Cheap Cosmetic Lenses

In creating Halloween makeup, using cosmetic lens is the the surefire way to achieve a scary or mysterious look easily. If you have a deep set eyes, your look will appear more convincing even with no horror makeup applied on your face. However, do be aware that not all cosmetic lens are safe for use. As always, there are suppliers trying to win market share buy selling the lens so cheap online or at non-optical shops. Obviously, they could sell cheaper because they just copied the design from the original brands and bypass quality and safety checks.

So, before you commit on buying any, here are two good articles to read. I'm sure there are many other cases and articles that you can Google online. Eyes are one of your most important asset. Getting cheap lenses from unreliable sources are just not worth it. You may spent so little on the lens because you want to save $100, but if your eyes are damaged, there is no turning back.

Interesting topics covered in these articles are:
1. You should never buy lenses from street vendors, salons or beauty supply stores, boutiques, flea markets novelty stores, Halloween stores, record or video stores, convenience stores, beach shops, Internet (unless the site requires a prescription).
2. True story on the negative implications of cheap cosmetic lenses.

Read the full article here:

If you are looking to create character looks such as Zombie, Vampires, Black Swan or Mad Hatter,  contacts lenses such as ColourVue Crazy Lens offer a lot of choices and is one of the most reliable cosmetic lenses to consider. These lenses are sold at optical stores and can therefore be trusted. For more information on ColourVue, visit

More International Beauty Brands coming to town

I had browsed through a few online job sites just to see who is hiring. And yeah - saw that Illamasqua and Too Cool For School are both hiring Makeup Artists in Singapore! Which means - both brands will be launching soon.

Illamasqua is a famous UK cosmetic brand famous for its intense colors and dramatic makeup. Too Cool For School is a Korean brand that is well known for its cute packaging that revolves around a school inspired theme. Not sure yet where and how many locations will they be at in Singapore but I chanced upon Too Cool For School store which is under renovation at level 3 Far East Plaza.

Enter the Airbrush Makeup!

The new trend in makeup is natural, fresh and glowing faces. Cakey, over powdered and masked skin are look fake and outdated. A great makeup makes us feel comfortable no matter how long our days are. A great makeup is also something that both men and women of any age can benefit from. We need a makeup that is lightweight and looks very natural – yet let us have a flawless and perfect complexion that glows. Good news is these are all achievable with Airbrush Makeup. Airbrush makeup is actually not a new concept to the makeup industry. For those who have never tried Airbrush Makeup and are curious to know what it is, do visit

Animal Testings of Cosmetic Products sold in China

It is really sad reading this news. Whilst human are so tempted to making huge bucks and consumers so encouraged to look great, the animals have to suffer. I mean, yes I understand that there are times animal testing is a must - especially for labs that research on medications - but purely for beauty reasons, I just find it ridiculous. Isn't it better to make less money than to die knowing you have tortured so many animals just so you could grow the business. I really hope that scientists can find more intelligent ways of testings cosmetics - which is a 'want', not a 'need' - rather than on the innocent animals. I agree with the Nick Palmer, at the end of the day, humans are not rabbits.

More Samples from NYX Cosmetics

I received the 2nd box from NYX Cosmetics today! I feel so blessed :). NYX is one of the cosmetics brand I respect as it focuses on affordable price, quality, highly-pigmented products and it's against animal testing. That is why till today, NYX Cosmetics is not sold in China, as to market the products there means these products must be tested on animal. So I have here in the package various types of foundations, blotters, concealers, eyeliners, eyeshadows, blushes and lip colours. Will post on my favourite item soon and also the face chart ideas - so if you happen to be in Malaysia, Sephora Kuala Lumpur and Penang have these products. Go try and get 'em!

Makeup Artist Brush Belt from NYX Cosmetics

I'm so happy and excited to receive this brush belt today. NYX L.A. is town to prepare for NYX launch in Sephora Singapore in August this year. I have a leather brush belt which I got from Stage back in year 2010 but the design is a regular brush belt design where most of the compartments are meant for brushes. As I use airbrush  most of the time, I don't need too many brush slots. Hence, when I saw this brush belt in NYX 2013 catalogue, I fall in love instantly. It's just exactly what I need. There are many compartments and some with zipper too. There are 3 key-rings attached. At the back, there is another pocket with zipper which I can slot in cash / card while on set. A handy tool that will definitely be my companion for a long time.
