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.

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.

    CHANEL Haul: Rouge Coco Shine & Chance Eau Fraîche

    Hi!

    this entry will feature a few Chanel goodies I purchased recently.

    Yesterday before going up to the Sky Gardens, I popped by the Chanel store at MBS to check out the newly launched Rouge Coco Shine (click HERE for my previous entry about them), and I knew exactly what color I was getting, which is Boy ---and that is also the color which poster girl Vanessa is wearing.

    Temptalia has a new entry about these Rouge Coco Shine this morning, check it out HERE.

    Price: $44 each

    Initial thoughts: super smooth, creamy, shiny.  Feels like a lip blam.  Very moisturising.  I swatched about 10 colors at the store yesterday, some are more pigmented than the others.  I am also eyeing Liberte, Chance, Monte Carlo, etc.. the list goes on.  The good news is that they are permanent additions to the Chanel collection, so you have plenty of time to collect/ stock up.

    Each purchase of the lipstick also get you a freebie,  and the BA also offered me a complimentary makeover session mid-month, when the HK based Chanel MUA will be coming down to the store to do makeup.  So I got one session booked for myself.  Kind of excited, except that I am a little nervous about having people (even professionals) do my foundation and lashes.

    Here is the freebie - last year, when the Rouge Coco were released, they were giving out Chanel buttons.

    Just a comparison of the Rouge Coco Shine - it is slightly smaller than the regular Rouge Coco.

    From L to R:

    Rouge Coco Shine, Rouge Coco, Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss, Rouge Allure Lacque, Rouge Allure

    And the next two items - I didn't mean to!  I had previously purchased the hair mist at Tangs last week, but yesterday also saw the release of two additions to their current Chance fragrance - the shimmering gel, and sheer moisture mist.  I tried the shimmering gel, super super pretty, but it's not something I would use all the time.  The sheer moisture mist, though, is a cooling spray, moisturising to your skin, and a nice layering product to the perfume itself.  I have the Chance Eau Fraîche perfume, and getting these two are like 'accessories' to the outfit.

    Been spraying the hair mist this week whenever I go out for food, and I particularly like the light scent, it doesn't clash with your other perfumes, so you don't necessarily have to be wearing the same scent.  I know there are equally effective and scented hair mists out there that doesn't cost more than $20....but we like little treats like this!  :)

    Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche Hair Mist 35ml $56

    Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche Sheer Moisture Mist 100ml $61

    The shimmery gel and sheer moisture mist come in the original Chance version too.



    That's all and thanks for looking.
