My Best Beauty Find of 2018

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial

I bought the Elixir Radiance Duo from Cult Beauty (to take advantage of the discount code/ free delivery/ VAT refund) and I got it at a steal! 2 full size items; Overnight Facial and Morning Facial for only £48. The Overnight Facial alone cost £49 💚 Maybe it's an LE item, I'm not sure. 

So Sarah Chapman is a highly sought after facialist (notice that she's not a dermatologist) in London. Her client list were extensive (including Meghan Markle, Gigi Hadid and Victoria Beckham to name a few) and there's a waiting list of 3 months to get yourself an appointment. She launched this best-selling Overnight Facial in 2008. That's 10 years ago! 

Okay, about the product. It's facial in a bottle. It is a serum-oil (took a while to fully absorb tho) but the effects are jarring. You can see the result the very next morning! The brand promise to leave your skin plump, smooth, rejuvenated, bright and radiant. That's a lot to promise but they do deliver.

I always used it on a dull-skin-day or when I need that extra boost or just to pamper my skin. Can't recommend enough!

Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter

Confession. Previously, I don't see the need to highlight because so many times (in real life), I saw amateurs with patchy and unnatural streaks of golden / silver highlight across their face. It does look amazing in promotional pictures/ beauty guru's Youtube videos but it seems difficult to master. Done correctly, highlighter are meant to emulate sun kissed healthy radiant skin.

So the other day Sephora was offering discount for Becca's Champagne Pop highlighter and I bought it on a whim. I felt in love with it so much that I bought another 2 shades; Opal and Moonstone 😂 They were so amazing!! The powders are so finely milled that it blended nicely with my skin. 

*I've tried the liquid version. I prefer the pressed highlighter

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow (SSS)
Trust me when I said I had a lot of eyeshadows 😂 A lot! This product alone, I had nearly 20 shades of em. But I had 2 shades that I kept coming back to; Issa and Central Perk. In fact, I've hit pan (it's been less than a year!).


Central Perk
Issa is a beautiful metallic eggplant purple that looked different from different angle. It last very long (without primer) and never creases. While Central Perk is the perfect deep plum color and even looks great on its own.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette

My second Hourglass palette and I really love it! This is a limited edition palette with 6 new shades of finishing powders, bronzer, blush and strobe powder. The textures of these powders are so soft and finely milled. They do not sit on top of skin / look powdery no matter how much you apply and I also love the brightening effect of the face powders! 

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder

So I got this as part of the Sephora Favorites Sunkissed Glow set from Sephora US. I did not set any expectation but when I first used it, I was blown away. It was so good!! It look so natural and beautiful on my skin. Blendable and lasts long too!
