Chatuchak Thai Tea & Coffee @ Icon Village (Tanjong Pagar)

A new thai snack place has landed in Tanjong Pagar Icon Village where you can get your Thai Milk Tea and Egglet craving fix anytime. Introducing Chatuchak Thai Milk Tea & Coffee.

Chatuchak Thai Tea and Coffee's beverages all have reduced sugar level to suit local palate because if we go for the original Thai version, it will be very very sweet. All ingredients they use are from Thailand and the tea leaves they use is from a famous Thai supplier which 80% of Thai food businesses in Thailand use this same brand.

Chatuchak Thai Tea and Coffee's egglets are handmade fresh daily with fresh milk (from Thailand), fresh eggs and ingredients, only uses premium grade flour, no preservatives. They are made fresh on the spot so you are surely getting the freshest egglets which are best eaten warm with those little crispy edges.

As shared earlier, their thai milk tea is really not that sweet at all, suitable for anyone to enjoy. They offer a wide range of flavours and some special ones like Greentea Cocoa, which was a beautiful blend of greentea with dark cocoa. It's almost like a chocolate coated matcha ice cream but melted version.

You can choose to have your egglets on its own or you can opt for the Egglet with Ice Cream for a instagrammable treat! Mix and match your egglet flavour with a choice of ice cream, I would recommend their charcoal cheese waffle with coconut ice cream.

Elizabeth Arden Gelato Crush Collection

What happens when a make up brand pairs up with a delicious treat? An awesome collaboration of beauty and yummy. Elizabeth Arden has collaborated with Alfero Gelato for their latest Gelato Crush Colour Collection! YES! YES! YES!

There are a total of 10 shades of Lip Liners, 4 shades of Cool Glow Cheek Tint and 22 shades of Plush Up Lip Gelato. Be spoilt for choices thinking which one you want to try first as they all sound so enticing and the colours are gorgeous!

Did you know:
Authentic Italian Gelato Marco Alfero, founder of Alfero Gelato, came from Turin, Italy to Singapore in October 2009 to deliver us “il paradiso” (“heaven” in Italian). Crowned the Best Ice Cream Parlour by RAS Epicurean Star Award Singapore, Alfero Gelato is made using only the finest quality ingredients imported from Italy and other parts of Europe. Also, Alfero is known for making their gelato 96% FAT FREE and with FREE-RANGE MILK, you can definitely indulge GUILT-FREE.

Let's take a look at the colours shall we?
I've got 2 Plush Up Lip Gelato in Flirty Fushia and Pink Lemonade, 1 Plump Up Lip Liner in Vintage Pink and the Cool Glow Cheek Tint in Pink Perfection.

I love the sleek black shiny packaging and there is a special way to open the Lip Gelato. You slide up the branding panel on the tube and pop comes the lippie. And you can just slide it back and lock it with a pop sound.

Here are the swatches with flash. I feel that the colours are so wearable from light pink to flirty pink to nude pinks. 

Here is me buay paiseh selfie for you to see. The lighting was too harsh so the blush could not be seen T__T. But..But.. look at my lips lined with the Vintage Pink Lip Liner, I like the nude colour which is very wearable and it feels like I have nothing on my lips.

Here I have topped it off with the Flirty Fushia Plush Up Lip Gelato. It gives me a rosier complexion which I love. It makes me look more awake and ready to take on the world! Ok, just kidding. But it definitely makes the overall look brighter. What do you think?

Beauty Product Haul - Jeffree Star, EM Cosmetics, Makeup Monster and more

Hello Hello everyone! I'm back to share with you my "not so" recent beauty haul Bangkok and US. I got quite a number of lippies from the US and mostly face products from Bangkok! There are brands like Em Cosmetics, Jeffree Star and Gino McCray! So read on to find out more!

From left to right: 1. Gino McCray Blusher in No. 4 Sandra Rose. 2. Srichand Original Scented Powder. 3. Srichand Tanaka Gold Powder Mask

I went crazy searching for shops that sell the Srichand Tanaka Gold Powder Mask as I saw many bloggers raving about it. But when I visited Eve&Boy, It was SOLD OUT! Then I went to every drugstore available and I found them fully stocked in Watsons. Most of the Watsons I visited have them in stock. Happy me swept the shelve clean, HAHA no la. Kidding only. Tip: Show the staff photos of the products you wanna buy in Thailand as they could not understand when I ask them for the brand "Srichand". Lol.

The Gino McCray Rose Gold Blush in No.4 Sandra Rose was a super LAST MINUTE purchase. I swatched it at the Beauty Buffet store in MBK center but I did not purchase it then as I thought that I won't use it. But the next two days, it kept floating in my mind and I told myself I had to get it. But, I could not find it in the other Beauty Buffet Stores! I had to visit many different shopping malls and I was lucky to have found it in Central World Beauty Buffet Store, my last stop before I headed to the Airport. Haha.

Next up is my US Lippie Haul, I got afew brands to try out. 1. Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lip in GEMINI, 2. EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Cloud in Faded Clementine, 3. Make Up Monster in Hit the Dirt, 4. Make Up Monster in Sedona, 5. AOA Studio Wonder Matte Liquid Lip in Fab, Litt, Doll and Sugar.

Would you believe that each of the AOA Studio Wonder Matte Lippie is only USD $1? YES THEY ARE! Haha. I have swatched them all but my favourite would have to be Sugar. It the right shade of Pink and Plum mixture. I would post up another post on all my lippie swatches, I'm really looking forward to that. Haha.

I have also been using the Makeup Monster in Sedona and Jeffree Star GEMINI to death, I love all these nude colours and I am So tempted to get more! According to the most comfortable to the least comfortable one, they would be in the following order: 1. Jeffree Star, 2. EM cosmetics, 3. Makeup Monster, 4. AOA Studio.

I hope that you got to know a little more about the many US Brand lip products and I hope I have introduced some of your favourite brands here as well.
