FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.

    THE BODY SHOP: Beauty with Heart [Lily Cole's Limited Edition Makeup Collection]

     

    Meet Lily Cole, The Body Shop's new brand advocate - she is an activist, model and actor.  Lily is refreshingly honest, human and up front about how she thinks the world could be a better place.

    Lily Cole's Cruelty Free Makeup collaboration with The Body Shop - celebrating TBS's aganist animal testing ethos.  The entire range contains no animal products and hasn't ever been tested on animals.  With ultra-expressive colours, being cruelty free has never been so glamorous.   The entire range is limited edition.

    In this entry, I will be sharing the product information, Lily Cole as the brand advocate, and also some background information on THE BODY SHOP's Beauty with Heart movement.

    First, the makeup products....

    (The colors look a little off in this set of press images I received.  But I will be showing you the actual products in a later entry, so hopefull you get a better idea of the actual colors.  Or you should go check out the products in store for yourself too!)

    Puff on Radiance - leaves a pink toned, luminescent finish and is perfect for face, cheeks and decolletage.  Comes with a super soft puff.

    Lip & Cheek Dome - A creamy gel in an easy to use, innovative dome format can be applied directly onto cheeks or onto lips.  Available in Pinch Me Pink, and Crazy for Coral.   This is also Lily's fave product among the range.

     

    Pearl Radiance Primer - These radiant, light-diffusing pearls give skin a pure radiance.  Use them before you use your foundation or just on its own.  In just one step, skin is hydrated, and complexion perfected.

    Shimmer Cubes - Pick one, two or more shades to blend and create your own look.  Shimmer Cubes come in a range of irisdescent pinks and lilacs.  Think Pink Live Lilac Go Violet and Tint it Pink.  Crease resistant and suitable for contact lens wearers.

    Mini Hi Shine - Available in Go Pink, Go Wild, Go Play, Go Naked -- the super shiny lip gloss can be applied straight to the lips, for super sexy hi-gloss lips.  With a fun and fruity flavour.

    Liquid Eyeliner - brightest, most dramatic violet - smudge proof and easy to apply, the fine tipped felt applicator delivers a vision in violet exactly where you want it.

    Mini Brush Set - A set of four miniature brushes for cheeks, eyes, and lips in a mirrored wallet.  With 100% cruelty-free fibres, these brushes are perfect for making up on the go.  Contains a blusher brush, eyeshadow brush, slanted brush and lipstick/ concealer brush.

    [interview excerpts]

    THE BODY SHOP & LILY CRUELTY-FREE MAKEUP

    Why was the Cruelty-Free Make-Up collection created?

    Cruelty-Free Make-Up was created to celebrate the Against Animal Testing stance of The Body Shop and show that you don’t have to harm animals to create great products, looks and colours.

    What makes Cruelty-Free Make-Up different from other make-up collections?

    Cruelty-Free Make-Up is made without harming animals. This means no bug shells, no animal hair and no fish scales in The Body Shop products.

    What is your favourite product in the collection?

    My favourite product in the collection is the Lip and Cheek Dome.

    Why did you put your name to Cruelty Free Make Up?

    I am proud to support the Against Animal Testing stance of The Body Shop.


    Sharing a few beautiful shots of Lily Cole in Ghana

     

    I will be featuring the actual products in a later entry as soon as I have time to take pictures, swatch, and create looks to see how they work.  Pricing information will be in that entry too.

    There will be several more TBS new products coming up soon on the blog, so do stay tuned!

     

    Hope this has been helpful, and thank you for reading!
