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.

    cle de peau 30th Anniversary: Limited Edition La Creme

    Hi hi

    This entry is a little overdue, seeing as I attended the press event for the 30th Anniversary for cle de peau beauty a month back.  I received the limited edition of their famous la creme, and I will be using it soon, so I thought a brief introduction to the product might be helpful. 

    The event was held at St Regis Hotel, and all the invited guests and media was treated to a presentation of cle de peau beauty history, technology and brand values.  Then the limited edition la creme was unveiled to us, in beautiful golden, blue and pink packaging. 

        For beauty that endures time, Clé de Peau Beauté has always been committed to scientific advancements that optimize skin's very nature. 

          Three major forces create the superior La Creme:
      • Powerful anti-aging benefits: La crème is newly formulated with scientifically advanced ingredients that comprehensively diminish the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and sagging.

      • Overnight results: Texture, elasticity and dullness are visibly improved overnight. Skin awakens to remarkable clarity and smoothness.

      • Cutting-edge emulsification technology: A special emulsification technology creates the ultimate texture that not only delivers ingredients more deeply, quickly and effectively, but enhances tangible benefits.
        How to use: Use as the final step of your nighttime skincare regimen. Take a small amount on spatula provided, transfer to fingertip, and gently smooth over entire face.
        Key Ingredients:
    • 4MSK- Exclusive to Cle de Peau Beaute, a superior brightening ingredient that inhibits melanin activation.

    • Retinol ACE improves skin's ability to counteract wrinkles.

    • W-TC Complex improves epidermal cell metabolism.

    • Cornflower (Centaurea Cyanus) Extract promotes the production of the protein that is the main component of the basement membrane.

    • Wintergreen (Pyrola Incarnate) Extract prevents damage to the basement membrane.

    • Chai Hu Extract is known to increase the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.

    • Saxifraga Extract is known to stabilize free radicals and inhibit the activation of enzymes that cause melanin formation

    La Creme is cle de peau's star item, and it retails for SGD$1,200 and can be bought at all cle de peau counters. 

    Three limited-edition packaging shades for la crème that symbolizes

    trust (Achieving Blue),
    radiance (Vibrant Yellow)
    and excitement (Promising Pink) 

    Holders inspired by the radiance of rare coloured diamonds.
    The gorgeous, elegant holders and packaging expresses the brand’s value,
    “Radiance becomes you”. 

    Perfect Yellow is an expression of radiant days.
    The excitement you feel when you realize your skin is starting to look more radiant, and you can’t help but touch it.
    Because you believe that the feeling will light up your presence. 

     

    Achieving Blue expresses the trust built up over the years.
    La crème has continuously evolved as we have imbued it with the most innovative skincare technology of the times, 
    gaining the support of many loyal customers. 

    Enchanting Pink expresses excitement about the future.
    Your skin’s tomorrow.
    Five or ten years from now, Clé de Peau Beauté promises constant excitement.
