Another season heralds a new Tom Ford Soleil collection, and with it, the new Winter Soleil 2018 Eye and Cheek Palette. This palette reminds me of sunshine setting over the horizon, and is perfect for an escapade away from the cold northern winter to a luxurious resort, and it arrived just in time for my Maldives holiday!

Merry Christmas! I trust that you are having a blessed time with your loved ones this holiday season. It has been an unbelievably busy month for me, and I spent a week in Maldives with my family doing absolutely nothing and it was the best ever! My 6-yo boy (with my help) will be posting up videos of the trip on his youtube channel (here!) starting with a feature of our seaplane ride, so please show some love by hitting the link to subscribe!
I received a ton of PR gifts this season and unfortunately was not able to share all of them here on the blog in time. Particularly, the wonderful folks at Lunasol sent across the entire AW2018 makeup collection a month ago. I was really torn between just posting pictures on Instagram for the sake of expediency, but as I dug into the individual pieces, I realized they’re really too beautiful to miss out on the blog. So am posting them here today, full swatches of everything and my quick thoughts on them – enjoy!

THREE Cosmetics has always favoured minimalistic functionality over excessive girlie frills in its product packaging, but I was still surprised by the stark black zippered pouch containing the latest Holiday 2018 palettes. Having relied on it for the past weeks though, I think the small palm-sized pouches and virtually destruction-proof packaging are absolutely brilliant for travels and on-the-go makeup. This season’s Art of Parties Collection feature 2 makeup palettes, and the one I have here is called Life of the Party.

Shu Uemura is all grown up at last!! After years of giving us kawaii holiday collections featuring furry Shuppette and Mario bros, and kitschy graphics from famed artists; Shu Uemura strikes out on a gourmet note this Holiday 2018 with La Maison du Chocolat! The collection puts a new spin to wearable art as each piece is perfectly wearable on a daily basis, and are scented (subtly and elegantly) to resemble the finest chocolates.

Most of the makeup you find at Sephora are chic and sleek, so imagine my surprise when I glimpsed a completely new concept that stood in stark contrast. With vintage-inspired packaging that has an element of youthful fun without falling into the junior category, and a name that almost makes fun of itself, Pretty Vulgar is the latest brand to hit our shores and it’s time to take a look at some of the offerings!
