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 […]

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss

Chanel has been hitting all the right notes with me lately (well not errrthang thank goodness, but enough to startle), and their latest Rouge Allure Glosses are no exception.

Chanel Collection Plumes Precieuses

Chanel Collection Plumes Precieuses for Holiday 2014

Can you believe it’s mid-November already? I think it’s time to get cracking on those Holiday 2014 collections, but for some reason I’m feeling rather uninspired this year. Maybe it’s the result of having over-indulged all through the year… maybe I need to go eat a leaf like the Hungry Caterpillar, hide away in my own […]

Battle of the nail polishes: Deborah Lippman vs Covet London vs NCLA

Random Mani-Monday Madness!

Happy Mani-Monday!!  I was recently invited by Luxola to review a few classic of nail polish shades that they carry, namely Deborah Lippmann, Covet London and NCLA; and I thought why not share my thoughts with you? As these polishes are not completely brand new, chances are, you will find much more qualified nail lacqueristas on […]

Liquid illuminators featuring Tom Ford, Koh Gen Do, Rouge Bunny Rouge, YSL

Get Glowing with these Liquid Illuminators!

It always seemed strange to me to be talking about liquid illuminators in the summer as that is probably when you need them the least. Instead, as the months get progressively drier as we approach winter, not to mention the blingy year-end parties, I find myself thinking more about illuminators. I’ve collected a few over […]
