Hello from New York, Times Square!
It's the third week of 2017, and I realised I haven't greet you lovelies properly. Happy New Year, Everyone! May the new year bring forth more abundance and goodness to you who's reading this!
Just some quick updates of what's going on with me and with Faithy Vanity Table for this upcoming first quarter of the year....
New Year Trip to New York City
As you probably already knew (if you're on my Instagram/Facebook), I kick-started 2017 with a trip to New York City. Experienced the first snow storm of my life and man...it was freezing my pants off but the scenery was really beautiful!
Also made a day trip to Brooklyn to take some pretty shots. More photos and New York travel information & tips will be posted on the blog soon-ish! (After I take care of some blog backlogs.)
Holiday Haul from New York
These are my fashion & beauty haul from the trip. I didn't pick up a lot of beauty products simply because Singapore has them at cheaper or equivalent prices. Our Singapore currency is weaker than the U.S., so the same stuff in Sephora Singapore are likely to be cheaper than in US.
From the above pic, you can gather than I chose mostly stuff that has yet to launched in Singapore Sephora. I will be selecting some to review before they are available for sale in Singapore - hope this helps you with your purchasing decisions! Let me know your product requests. ;)
I definitely will be doing more detailed reviews on Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection and Guerlain Happy Glow Spring 2017 since they are confirmed to be launched in Singapore. In fact, Guerlain has already launched and my review will be up on the next blog post!
I haven't been participating in many media events in the month of January since I was away for the most part; and I also need time to attend to my personal/family matters... However, I attended bloggers/influencers dinner gatherings with some of my favourite beauty brands. Pleased to know that more makeup & skincare will be launching soon in Singapore this Spring!
Upcoming Beauty Launches in Singapore
Keep a lookout for L’Oréal Makeup Designer Paris NEW launches. This time round, besides the 24K gold lipsticks everyone was swooning about, L’Oréal Singapore is bringing in their contour powders, eyeshadow cushion sticks and lash & brow lengthening serum! Will blog about these soon!
Remember the popular Taiwan skincare brand, famous for its cellulose mask - For Beloved One? Now, they have a sister brand with even more variations of masks for different skin types! For Beloved Girl will be launched in April in Singapore! I am holding on to some really cool masks right now, and will be reporting back to you how these new kids on the block work for me!
