    Back to Where it all Started: Tom Ford Black Orchid, Ultimate Seduction

    There is always something, a moment in time, that sets us off on a different trajectory in life. That first kiss, first touch, first taste of the luxe… For me, the first whiff that set me on the path towards haute fragrances was Tom Ford Black Orchid. Up until then I had enjoyed good perfumes, […]

    Surratt Beauty Lipsliques in Hevyn, Pom Pon & Peccadille

    After my meeting with Troy Surratt [story here], I was very inspired to take a fresh look at makeup, going back to basics instead of chasing trends. I want to look at makeup the way a normal woman would shop, find the products that make sense in a limited functioning wardrobe, instead of buying every […]

  • Dior Golden Shock for Holiday 2014

    Dior Golden Shock Colour Lip Duos & Golden Reflections 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow for Holiday 2014

    There is nothing that speaks of opulence and luxury as well as the color gold. So for the 2nd year running, Dior has turned to gold packaging and woven gold throughout its Holiday collection. There is no disregarding the fact that it is beautifully designed, but for makeup-holics who have been seen their fair share […]

Loving me some Luxurious Shower Gels

I love a good long hot shower, just standing under running water feels so decadent… Sometimes when you’re running around all day, rushing from point to point, trying to churn out blog posts in time for product launches and answer emails to PRs chasing you for reviews… a good long hot shower is what you […]

Guerlain Holiday 2014 A Night at the Opera Collection

Appreciating Guerlain’s A Night at the Opera Collection for Holiday 2014

The one thing that I love about Guerlain is that it is never a one-trick pony. Whilst other brands build entire collections around 1-2 eyeshadow palettes, or maybe 1 very pretty highlighter, or even a collection of lipsticks; Guerlain has done excellently in more than 1 product category with this year’s A Night at the […]

Troy Surratt in Singapore

A Moment with Troy Surratt: On Living Well, Balance, and Hevyn

I was a fan of Surratt Beauty from the moment it launched at Barneys [thank God for online shopping!], and so it was a real honor to be able to spend some time with Troy Surratt himself at his newly opened counter at Takashimaya, Singapore!

Tom Ford Holiday 2014

Tom Ford Dresses up the Eyes in Platinum & Spice and sets Lips on Flame for Holiday 2014

Hot off the trail of the previous FW2014 collection, we now turn to Tom Ford’s Holiday 2014 offering. This time, it almost feels as if the brand “cheated” a little by re-promoting 2 cream color for eyes both from the Spring 2012 collection. It was soldout then, and I am glad for a second chance […]

NARS purple rain nail polish

Revisiting NARS Purple Rain for the Holidays

Somehow amidst all the glitter and reds, we seem to be missing a good purple nail polish for this Holiday 2014…or am I missing something??  Instead, I found something in my stash whilst cleaning this past weekend, and decided to revisit an oldie but goodie!

Pharrell Williams Commes des Garcons Girl EDP

Pharrell Williams Partnered with Comme des Garcons to Produce an Uncommon Girl

When I first heard that Pharrell Williams had launched his own fragrance titled “Girl”, I gave a yawn and dismissed it as yet another celebrity-endorsed mass market fragrance. Just to state upfront, I did not dislike “Happy” the first time I heard it, but it was one of those generic songs that gets overplayed to […]

Guerlain Holiday 2014 Petrouchka palette for eyes and cheeks

Guerlain A Night at the Opera for Holiday 2014: Petrouchka Palette for Eyes & Cheek

Guerlain is always the brand that I look forward to the most each year when the holiday collections start rolling out, and the last 2 years’ Liu and Crazy Paris collections contained some of my personal favorites from Guerlain ever. With such a strong track record, my expectations were so high that I fell short […]
