The one red that fits us all… Shu Uemura RD163

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!

Celebrate Colour with Kanebo this Spring 2019

The Japanese typically favour soft pastels colours for Spring, so it is a wonderful surprise to see Kanebo design an entire collection of makeup around the colour red.  For Kanebo,  red symbolizes the essence of life, and defines the complexion.  So to bring out everybody’s inherent beauty, Kanebo has developed its own 5R color story that has a different hue and intensity of red pigment to suit every skin tone and imbue it with a natural healthy color.

5 Skincare Tips for Surviving Winter

January is probably the most challenging month for our skin, with the post holiday-binging and being blasted by the full force of winter.  For years now, I’ve been wanting to write a post about winter skincare, but somehow I never got around to it.  This week though, I woke up with a real urge to create this post, which is going to be a departure from my usual product reviews, but really a sharing from my heart.  I don’t consider myself a beauty guru, and I’m not one for whipping up my own masks and remedies at home.  But our skin is the largest living organ in our bodies, whose sole purpose is to protect us from the extremities of our environment, and when it is exposed to sub-zero weather it is only right we honor and do what we can to protect it.  So here are 5 tips that work for me (and a few product recommendations along the way), and I hope they help you too!

Jo Malone Bronze Wood & Leather Cologne Intense

I am constantly surprised by Jo Malone’s ability to keep on reinventing itself and keep us fans on our toes.  It is not an easy job to regularly push out new and exciting fragrances, and Jo Malone has really impressed me with its latest Bronze Wood & Leather.  The notes hint at something quite innovative, and the combination of wood and leather is something I’ve never seen before, so I was deeply intrigued.
