There’s never been a better time to be a man in Melbourne. A metro, stylish, fashionister. Although my husband refuses to accept a label as such, his clean-shaven baby-smooth face proves him otherwise. So when I found out that a new concept store ‘Men’s Biz’ opened up shop in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade, I couldn’t’ help but indulge him in a few well-presented man products. The packaging is phenomenal! Plus, turns out that I can use the Men’s Biz products too! Luckily for me, hubby doesn’t mind sharing…DSC00127Photo taken at Aquabelle  Apartment 7

I like my beauty products just like my clothes: multi-functional, with minimal fuss. These are my current favourites, clockwise from left:

Geo. F. Trumper Almond shaving cream – aside from its obvious purpose, did you know that you can also use shaving cream to clean your jewellery, remove carpet stains and prevent squeaky hinges? Plus, I’m a little addicted to the nutty fragrance!

Dovo Manicure Kit – it’s hard to go past anything in a leather pouch. Being a veterinary surgeon I need to have short nails at all times. Plus, these little scissors are the only ones that give me good enough control to cut Baby’s teeny nails!

Tom Ford Wild Ginger Lipstick – meet my BFF, sidekick, partner in crime, whatever you like to call it. A few dabs across the cheeks, this trusty rouge also works as a blush.

Geo. F. Trumper Limes Deoderant – once again, the packaing is to die for. And don’t get me started on the zesty scent!

Malin & Goetz lip moisturizer – just as its name suggests, this thick and clear lipbalm gives your chaps a gorgeous sheen and also works as an eyebrow tamer.

NARS Blush – the rosy tint provides a natural flush and makes me look more alive. It also doubles as an eye shadow.

Kevin Aucoin Volume Mascara – aka my Magic wand! Its small brush is perfect for my ‘typical’ short Asian lashes as it really lengthens them. I don’t leave home without applying 2 coats of it. Plus, it comes off in the shower without the need for any makeup remover. Sch-weet!
