Your Say: Does it bother you when you realise you have to go up a dress size?

Does going a size up in clothes size bother you?

As the quote goes – Vanity, thy name is woman.

Women are saddled with societal baggage of conforming to the beauty norms of the day. In this day, it appears that being thin is still in. I would however, prefer if we were allowed to look like Ruben’s women! This pressure is, I feel, further exacerbated by visuals we are presented with, especially online. Just look at any ad campaign or successful blogger/influencer/model and the trend is there – you must be thin.

There is also the other movement for people to be lean. I often stumble on before/after pictures on Instagram, of women who have successfully shed a lot of weight, or who promote “clean eating” and exercise, and the common thread is this – they’re all fairly thin and lean.

Does going a size up in clothes size bother you?

So, how does that make you feel, when you realize that the clothes in your closet fit a touch too snug. Or that you have to hold your tummy in when wearing that favourite dress, that you’ve owned from 5 years ago, when you were a tad more svelte? Or that your butt looks larger than ever before 😛

Do you make a resolute decision to exercise and go on a diet, or do you say sod it! And size up in your clothing? I’m curious because I went through this exercise! 🙂

When searching for the Best Concealer Brush you really should think outside the box

A while ago, I shared with you a tip on the best way to apply concealer for a lovely diffused and natural finish. I don’t know if anyone is still practising it, but I still am, and it still amazes me to this day, how effortless it is and looks.

The next question that naturally arose was what is the best concealer brush to use?

I’ve been meddling around for a while since, trying to figure out which makeup brush I favoured for applying concealer, and I think I have finally found the best ones.

Do note that I will share with you the best SHAPES you should look out for, because there are many different brands of brushes out there, and you can use this guideline to find one within your budget. You may have realised by now, that my tastes run into champagne territory, not iced tea 😛

Giving you a headstart on skin radiance right off the starting blocks with the REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic

REN Skincare is one of my favourite skincare brands, and many of you know I’m into using acid toners. So, when REN released the REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic earlier this year, I was off like a shot to grab hold of it! My face needs me some acids!

I’ll tell you about acids another day, but you’d know by now that I am a big fan of the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 and the Pixi Glow Tonic. These are 2 exfoliating lotions or also known as “acid toners” that I unhesitatingly recommend to most people who want to try it. They also happen to fall, quite serendipitiously, on both ends of the price scale.

The REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic comes somewhere in between the two.

The Excel Powder & Pencil Eyebrow EX is an award-winning product and I fully agree!

It feels like years since I was in Japan, when it was in fact, just about 3 months ago. But I’m slowly working through the products I bought while I was there, and I wanted to share one of my favourites – the Excel Powder & Pencil Eyebrow EX. Like many Japanese brands, the name tells you everything and nothing all at once.

I bought this one purely on a whim. I think I might have come across it somewhere online, but I went to Japan without having much of a list in mind. However, when I was in a random pharmacy (or drugstore), I came across an Excel makeup stand, and I remembered that the brand does receive some raves. I also vaguely remembered mention of the eyebrow pencil somewhere. So I picked one up.

It wasn’t until I got back to the room, unpacked my purchases to see what I’d bought, that I realised just how unique it was. Ok, it isn’t earth-shattering as other brands carry it too, but it was unique by me, because I’d never tried it before – a brow pencil, with a powder.

Back with another beauty snack, and this time, it’s to tell you that Omorovicza skincare is now available here in Malaysia stores. Omorovicza (pronounced Omo-ro-veet-sa) is a luxury skincare brand from Budapest, Hungary, and their story lies around the use and incorporation of thermal water into their products.

Omorovicza utilizes the healing properties of Hungary’s thermal waters in all their products. These thermal water baths had long been popular for people to soak in, to help heal skin problems, and also to soothe aching muscles. The curative properties of thermal waters can never be under estimated!

The cult favourite Stratia Liquid Gold will leave you feeling mellow yellow

I remember that Stratia Liquid Gold was quite popular on Instagram a little while ago. It was easily visible due to its bright yellow colour, and the name tripped off the tongue. Prior to this, my only reference to Liquid Gold was the cult favourite one from Alpha-H that I still use to this day.

When a friend asked if I might want to hop onto her order for a bottle to try, I jumped at it. Shipping is a flat rate direct from the website, so it made sense to share the order and save on shipping.

Stratia is a brand of skincare from the USA focused on science based ingredients. While this isn’t uncommon today, they aren’t as pretentious as many other brands out there *coughTheOrdinarycough* 😛 They also don’t have very many products in their range, which I’m fine with. It isn’t about having 300 products to sell, it is about having some and doing them well. Stratia must be, because I know of many people who hail the Liquid Gold as holy grail!

I was naturally quite curious, and quite excitedly gave this a go when it arrived. I have had this quite many months now, and I think I have formed my view 🙂
