Major cushion fever has struck!! If you have been following my blog for awhile, you may have seen that when I first tried my first cushion oh-maybe-3 years ago, I was rather meh about it. Since then, technology has really moved things along, and with more brands getting their cushion game on, there are real innovations and much more choices! And to get things started, I’d like to share with you Biotherm’s latest foray into colour makeup – Evermoist C.C. Cushion!

I have not been the biggest proponent for cushion foundations for the past few years, but I feel the industry has improved the formulation to a point where I find myself embracing them with open arms. And my latest obsession is Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Pearl Aura, probably the first base product that have me determined to use up asap!

If you’ve been following makeup trends for some time now, eventually you might grow weary of claims of greatness. For a base makeup junkie like me, who has less than perfect skin, I’ve come to realise that fancy labels and expensive branding does not necessary translate into great makeup. The ultimate vindication comes when my mother-in-law tells me my skin is looking flawless recently. Ladies, this is the same woman who did not think to filter her words before telling me that I am FAT the day after I gave birth to her 1st grandson. So, I believe a talking mirror could not utter greater truths than this woman. And the secret to my seemingly flawless skin was Anna Sui’s Illuminating BB Cream and Loose Face Powder N.

La Mer recently launched the brand new The Reparative Skintint which provides the benefits of a color product together with all the skin-loving goodness that La Mer is famous for. Ever since my previous holy grail The SPF18 Fluid Tint was discontinued years ago, I have been eagerly awaiting for a new improved version… and I am not disappointed!

I found myself very introspective this week, influenced in large part by the events that had suddenly turned the tiny island country I live in into a hot travel destination for world dignatories (read here if you’re not aware), and the downtown area around my office into the world’s longest queue (full report here). As I look at the lives around me, in contrast to the one that just passed, I can’t help but wonder at the vast contrast. Perhaps we can’t all be history makers, but I believe we can all be significant in our own lives. Instead of playing self-serving games and pushing office politics, trying to disguise inaptitude with bureaucracy, this world would be a much better place with a bit more humility and grace. But you did not come here to hear me rant, instead, let’s look at some pretty things that are able to make our lives just a little bit better, shall we?
I started out writing a review on the new Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening skincare collection a few days ago, but life seemed to have taken over and I just can’t seem to get back into the groove. So instead, I thought I’d start introducing the very extensive collection by discussing the 2 makeup products – Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening BB Crème, and Estee Lauder Crescent White Brightening Powder Makeup.

Every spring, Guerlain does a reinvention of their famed meteorites, and rightly so, as there is nothing that brings about a glow the way those precious pearls do. And this Spring 2015, Guerlain has given us 3 different brand new renditions of that youthful baby glow! Today I’d like to talk about 2 of them…
