The Beauty Cupboard

These are some of my latest beauty beauty purchases which I've accumulated since December. The Elemental Herbology Cell Food serum was something of a January splurge and after Daniela raved on about it, I can see why. It's my favourite serum that I've used so far, great to prep the skin before moisturiser and really helps my skin feel extra smooth, brighter and moisturised. The Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser is good, though far sheerer than any of the BB creams that I am so used to wearing and the Shu Uemura Eye Light pencil is really convenient to use for the inner corner of the eyes. I love sheet masks and you can't go wrong with Etude House for a quick moisture boost and the Faith in Face ones are pretty awesome too, both of which are Korean brands. However the one item I've been super impressed by is the Illmasqua polish. It is hands down the most hard wearing nail polish I've ever come across. It's been over a week and I've not had a single chip! I'll admit, it's super pricy for a nail polish but roll on payday so that I can treat myself to a few more shades...

  1. That nail color looks gorgeous, and the wear sounds amazing. I hate it when pretty color chip off super fast. I definitely wouldn't mind investing if it lasts!

  7. That nail colour reminds me of OPI's Lucky Lucky Lavender but it's a bit brighter - so pretty. I must try Illamasqua nail polish then - hate it when nail polish chips or wears soon after application. One week sounds pretty awesome! The Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer has been so raved about that I've gotta try it some day. With better skin (the serum seems to be working for you), all you need is a bit of coverage ;)

    1. I don't think you can buy it in HK yet. Also the mascara wand looks cool but it isn't really that necessary in my opinion!

  14. Is the E.H. serum a bit like a primer before make-up or does it have another purpose? I once had a sampleof the E.H moisturiser and it was definitely the best moisturiser I've ever used. It was a couple of years ago and I'd forgotten all about it, you've just reminded me. Think I might just have to try this!

    1. It's not really a primer as such - it's applied on cleansed skin before moisturiser. Feels awesome after cleansing - skin literally drinks it up! It preps the skin before moisturiser and also enhances/works well with the moisturiser too!
