If a product is said to target Asian skin, it most probably is designed to get rid of the yellowness problem that most Asian skin has. Doesn’t that sounds absolutely tempting? To own glowing skin that has a rosy finish? Like those super adorable Japanese kids have.

The Nutritious Rosy Prism line is not new to Estee Lauder’s product line. There have been other products within the line that counters the yellowish skintones of Asian women. These 3 items are the latest additions to the existing range to help achieve a rosy glow.

Nutritious Rosy Prism Radiant Essence (S$106 30ML)

Claims: This powerful, yet lightweight essence delivers new Rosy Prism Technology as well as extra correcting ingredients to help dissolve the look of yellow tone caused by environmental assaults. With regular use, the new essence was proven to visibly diminish excess yellow tone in just eight weeks.

Packaging of the bottle isn’t the typical straight cylinder, this one is designed to have a slight twist. Literally. Rather interesting. Consistency of the serum is watery and as expected, very smooth and easy to blend. I noticed the product alone has a rosy glow on its own, which is really quite pretty.

However, I have to say that I’m pretty neutral with it. Not sure if the rosy glow was achieved with the use of this product and it certainly wasn’t as hydrating as I would like it to be.

Nutritious Rosy Prism Radiant Gel Emulsion (S$92 50ML)

Claims: Infusing skin with nutrient-rich hydration, this fresh and lightweight aqua-gel texture keeps skin hydrated all day and plumps skin’s surface while also helping to strengthen skin’s moisture barrier. Breaking with a watery touch on application, the new Gel Emulsion treats skin with a smooth, healthy radiance.

The gel on the other hands, I have only positive things to say. I’m a huge fan of gel moisturizers! They are easy to blend, feels cool on the skin and hydrates really well without leaving a thick, oil, sticky film on the skin after application. And this one, certainly doesn’t disappoints.

Apart from being Pink, the fruity/floral scent pleases my nose. And as expected, the gel really does fulfill all my high expectations of what a gel moisturizer should feel and be like. If I were to only recommend 1 item from the line, it would be this one, hands down!

Nutritious Rosy Prism Radiant CC Creme SPF20 PA+ (S$86 30ML)

Claims: Providing deep down hydration and extra comfort, this skin-cushioning creme helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier to help protect skin from external assaults such as irritants from pollution. The Quasi-Drug Anti-Inflammatory formula calms and soothes skin to prevent irritation that can lead to an inflammatory cascade and melanin production. Immediately, skin feels smoother, supple and looks brighter and more even-toned.

If I’m not mistaken, CC creams are not equivalent to BB creams. BB stands for Blemish Balms and could replace your usual tinted moisturizer or even foundation if you are up for it. CC on the other hand, stands for Colour Correcting, and as the name suggests, it corrects the colour on our skin.

Now what do that even means? My take on it is that it adjusts the uneven tones on the skin and corrects it to achieve an even flawless finish, in terms of colour. And that reminds me of a Primer.

So yes, I have been using CC creams as primers, underneath my usual foundation. And that is how many other makeup artists are using their CC creams. How did Estee Lauder’s fair? Pretty darn good. It helped reflect light off my face which hid most of the discoloration.

My complexion is still not the best and the coverage of the CC cream is barely noticeable. However, I still do see and feel a difference. Picture below is prior to any foundation and only has 1 side applied with the CC cream.

American Apparel - An American clothing brand that is well known for making basic, solid-colour Cotton knitwear such as tees and underwear. However, they have since expanded their product line and offer a wide variety of basic pieces.

I don’t remember seeing American Apparel stores in Singapore but now you can shop the brand at Zalora SG! What’s more, it’s on SALE now, up to 50% off!

Miss-Rusty-Zalora-American-Apparel-Overview

WOMEN

I’m not going to lie, I’m quite a fan of American Apparel. I own a couple of their shorts and numerous basic tees, tanks and even dresses. Pieces from the said brand are both timeless and comfortable, perfect for everyday wear. Also, since they possess such a classic design, one could definitely play up or dress down depending on how one layers and pairs their outfits.

One of my favourite pieces is their Flex Fleece Hoody! I always bring it with me regardless of overseas trips or staycations, it’s a must-bring item. Although light weight, the thin coat of fleece helps to keep me warm. And how gorgeous are the shimmery gold mini skirt and the vertical striped spandex crop top? You’ll definitely steal the spotlight from anyone wearing them together!

MEN

Don’t worry, men are not excluded from this awesome ‘lobang’. What about my favourite fleece hoody? They have it for men too! Actually I believe it’s a unisex piece. Offering suave polos and tees, they even offer shorts/berms for your man. Men love basic, you can never go wrong with American Apparel!

I’m back with the monthly Bellabox review!  In the month of September, Bellabox has decided to go vogue and get all ready and prepped up for the Spring season. In accordance with the fashion week, September is also the season for fashion lovers.

But this is a beauty box right?

Now who says fashion is only reserved for clothing? The makeup and nail colour goes hand in hand as well, taking inspiration from the runways and trends. In Bellabox’s words, “We dare you to reconsider.“.
