Guerlain makes some of my favourite foundations… they don’t boast an extensive range, but I’ve lived on and loved most of their formula. There is a smoothness and refinement that is not commonly found in other makeup brands. It has been many years since Guerlain last introduced a liquid foundation that is outside of their regular product lines so I was really excited to check out the new L’Essentiel!

There is a revolution afoot this spring, a whole new crop of foundations to herald in a beautiful complexion in keeping with the latest makeup trend. Petal fresh skin has never been more alive and real, coverage is uncompromised by texture and comfort. To kickstart this mini series is the latest cushion from Sulwhasoo and the brand’s first ever liquid foundation.

Lunasol is hitting hard and strong these few months and I’m loving it! After a rather strong handed fall and winter season last year, the brand is switching things up and going back to the classics with its best loved The Beige line. If you hadn’t already seen it, there are 2 huge (for any Japanese brand) 10-shade eyeshadow palettes that are the stuff of dreams for all neutral lovers. And plenty of cheek and lip options too to accompany the look.

This Spring 2019 has been a fairly quiet one for me… I’ve not really been feeling many of the mainstream collections from the usual brands, in any case pastels and candy hues were never my thing. But Chanel takes a different approach with its Le Blanc makeup line this year, going for skin-like glow to get us transitioning into summer, and I’m all for it!

For the title of this post, I really wanted to write “I lost my cherry to Tom Ford…” which is a cheeky pun that makes utterly no sense of course, but in a strange turn that was what happened to me. Cherry notes generally do not rank high on my list of fragrance preferences, and I have a strong version to the sickening sweet variety used by many mainstream brands. So admittedly, I was only mildly interested in the new Tom Ford Private Blend for its packaging. I mean, who can resist the cherry red encased in clear glass bottle? But one spritz of Lost Cherry, and I was utterly and completely besotted.

Happy Valentines’ Day! This year’s festival of love falls right smack in the middle of Chinese New Year, so I thought it is apt to introduce the perfect red lipstick on this special occasion. A red lip signals confidence, femininity and sexiness; no woman should be without her go-to red lipstick. No 2 reds are the same though, the slightest tweak in undertone can make a huge difference. And now, Shu Uemura has designed a universal red lipstick to suit the Asian woman!
