I have not acquired any new Dior makeup in a long time, preferring to invest in their fashion accessories instead. But I couldn’t resist the latest Dior en Diable collection for Fall 2018, especially the 5 Couleurs Rouge en Diable eyeshadow palettes. There are 2, I resisted the urge to pick up both of them, and chose the more sophisticated Volcanic.

Whenever I think of fool-proof makeup that lasts and provides complete coverage, I think of Estee Lauder’s famed Double Wear foundation. If you thought that was the last word on the subject, Estee Lauder now ups the ante with a new Maximum Cover Foundation! And as we head into the cooler and drier season ahead, you might also want to check out the new Flawless Hydrating Primer. Read more after the jump!

Hello friends! It has been surprisingly nice here in Cologne this time of the year, and I’ve been booked in a shoebox of a hotel room this round, so I’ve tried to spend most of my time outside. I had initially thought I’d have so much time to myself that I can catch up on blog posts, but instead I’ve just been crashing the moment I get back. Today I took off to Dusseldorf for a spot of shopping, you can take a peek on my Instagram stories.
Before I turn in for the night again, I would like to show you my latest purchase from SUQQU AW2018’s collection. The brand used to send me their collections, but somehow I seemed to have been dropped from their recent PR musical chairs. It’s sad because I love SUQQU and have always done my best to get thorough reviews out before the official launches, no matter how late the press drops show up. But in a way it has been sort of liberating and I no longer feel any pressure to get the features out. The latest season looked so pretty though, and in a pleasant turn of events, I was actually able to get hold of it on Selfridges!

Greetings from Cologne, Germany! I’m here for my annual pilgrimage to my company’s headquarters… and of all the times I’ve visited Cologne, I think this is the nicest season to be here. The air is cool and crisp but very comfortable, and the sky is sunny and clear.
Whenever I travel, I prefer to go with easy to wear lip colors that are gentle on my lips, and preferably long lasting or at least wears off gradually so I do not look too untidy without constant touch-ups. And out of all the new lipsticks that I have recently received, my newfound favourite is the Laneige Stained Glasstick!

This week, my world is buzzing with hype about the new Crazy Rich Asians movie. And whilst the movie completely overplayed the wealth of the rich and famous in Singapore, the type it portrays certainly exists in Asia. In case you still have not noticed, the world’s wealth is now centered in Asia, which explains all the luxe new beauty launches targeted with Asians in mind. Now, most of us (me specifically) will not be able to jet around the world on a whim attending fashionable events on a private jet, but nothing will stop us when it comes to pampering and preserving the youth of our skin! With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to the new La Prairie White Caviar Creme Extraordinaire!

Chanel has been hitting us hard and fast with new launches this year, and I’m loving it! The brand already has an extensive range of foundations, and has been expanding the offerings first with the stellar Gel Touch Foundation [reviewed here], now with a new Chanel Vitalumiere Glow Cushion!
