The Countdown To Christmas! 25 days of great gift ideas, starting with Tarte!

Hi everyone!! Christmas is slowly sneaking up on us. Here in Singapore, the Christmas street lights are starting to come up, cafes are offering festive-themed drinks, and soon it’ll all just hit us hard! I have a really bad habit. Leading up to Christmas, I’ll procrastinate preparing gifts for my friends and family because I always think I have more time. Fast-forward to the week before Christmas and I’ll avoid the stores because they’re packed! Who else is always stuck in this situation like me?

This year, I thought I’ll start early and give all of you gift ideas. Although this is a beauty and bike blog, I’ll bring ideas, services and gifts which across the years have become my favourite classics, and also some new fancy stuff!! For those who have no time or can’t get to the stores, I’ll give you suggestions on what you can get without even moving from your desk.

For you, you and you, I’m also going to include some mini (and full) giveaways! Read on for more.. there’s one today!

I’m going to do this countdown style, so we’ll start from #25

Idea #25: Give your best pals a treat from Tarte!

Tarte’s just arrived on our shores (find it in Sephora Singapore) , and their Amazonian Clay range is really something to shout about!
I’ve been trying out the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation, which keeps shine at bay, masks your imperfections, stays an amazing 12 hours on your face, and yet looks oh-so-natural!!
Price: S$60

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 in Light-medium Beige, $60

If you’ll prefer some colour, their Amazonian Butter Lipsticks are super cute, and the colours look so fresh on the lips. It contains Cupuacu butter, Murumuru butter, and Shea butter to soothe and moisturise. To boot, the eco-packaging is super cute!!!
Price: $26. Colour shown: Coral Blosson

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Coral Blossom, $26

Here’s a natural day look I’m wearing using Tarte:


On face: Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation in #Light Medium Honey
Eyes: beauty & the box Amazonian Clay Quad Eyeshadow, Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
Lips: LipSurgence Lip shine in Soft Pink

I’m really taken with the foundation! It’s so smooth, doesn’t cake up, and I don’t need to use powder over it!
