I’ve been a little distracted lately… and have been wondering if I have the capacity to continue maintaining this blog. It is not even about redirecting my efforts to other social media platforms, I think I need to just focus on doing me for a bit. I had the crappiest Mothers’ Day because my husband wrecked my brand new car; and broke my wrist by slamming it against a window frame. Tip of the iceberg, but looming in the horizon for a while now. This blog began as an avenue for me to define myself as more than just a mother and wife at home, and beyond just another employee at work. Lately however, I find myself struggling to keep up with the pipeline, and having to dig deep to find enthusiasm and joy in the latest and bestest. The question is, what do we do when the passion is gone?
An unexpectedly heavy introduction to what should be an easy read, my apologies for that. But let’s say that I’m not ready yet to let go entirely, so I will take this as a nice distraction for as long as I can. So humor me, dear readers, with some emotional verbage and not-so-philosophical discourse from time to time. In return, I will aspire to do justice to some products that still manage to impress me in spite of it all. Today, I have the pleasure of introducing the latest Western-branded cushion that has found its place squarely in my daily routine – the Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation!

Welcome May! I hope you all enjoyed a nice long extended Labour Day Weekend, or at least got some much deserved rest. It has been a year since Shu Uemura launched the Petal Skin Foundation [reviewed here] which drapes skin with a poreless translucency complete with a soft radiant finish. And now to take the lightness a step further and for greater portability, Shu Uemura introduces a brand new Petal Skin Cushion Foundation!

The first quarter of the year is over in a blink, and now we are accelerating right into summer. 2018 has been a very productive start for me in many aspects of my life, though the ride has been bumpy with several members of my family falling severely ill. Nonetheless many seeds that were sowed last year are starting to germinate and take hold, so I’m looking forward to a fruitful harvest. On the beauty side of things, many of the brands that were once so elusive are now launching in Singapore – be sure to follow me on Instagram [@silverkis] to catch my stories on the latest launch parties! Not everything shiny and new are the best though, I discovered several HG products that I am going to share with you today.

I’ve fallen in love with Sulwhasoo recently… as a brand it is not new to me, but it is a slow and incremental journey of explorations. The more I try and further I venture, the more I realize just how much my skin loves Sulwhasoo’s products! Their skincare is top-notch and extensive (I recommend you check these out); and the brand is now expanding its makeup offerings, starting with the new and improved Perfecting Cushion EX, and a couple more accompanying products!

Happy New Year my lovelies!! Hope 2018 is off to a smooth start for you. I finally caught up on all the holiday season crush, and am now circling back to some of the beauty staples that I’ve been enjoying for the most part of the last quarter but never found the time to write a proper review on. There’s no better way to kick start the year than with lots of glow… with the latest additions to YSL’s famed Touche Éclat line.

Su:m37 is a premium Korean beauty brand that is best known for its Secret Essence. The brand was recently launched in Singapore, and I got the chance to try out some of its products. Whilst skincare testing takes some time (my initial reaction is very positive so far!), I’d like to introduce you to a couple of makeup bases today.
