When I heard that Shu Uemura was launching a new liquid foundation, my thoughts immediately went to the Lightbulb franchise… it’s about time a new version came along. However, I was intrigued when I found out the new foundation is in fact completely brand new, and it replaces the older, much-loved Face Architect. Ladies, let me introduce you to the new Shu Uemura Petal Skin Foundation!

Happy Chinese New Year! It’s been 3 continuous days of non-stop feasting and visiting with relatives, and in my free time I’ve been trying to catch up on some photography. I started formulating this post last night, but fairly soon into it, I decided that I wanted to expand the topic slightly. Hourglass only recently arrived at Sephora Singapore last fall, and today I’d like to introduce 2 of their recent base makeup releases – Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation and Ambient Light Correcting Primer in Luminous Light.

I find myself in a little bit of a time squeeze right now, as the year is rapidly winding down and I still have several launches from this year that I have yet to share with you. As a real Tom Ford fan, it feels a little strange that I have taken this long to share today’s topic with you. But in my attempts to get you an early peek on the Winter Soleil collection [see here] and those Lips & Boys [here], these permanent releases had to take a back seat. In any case, today we shall sit back and examine the new Face Focus 2016 collection from Tom Ford.

It’s 9 days to Christmas, how’s your gift shopping coming along? I hope along with all the lovely thoughts that have gone into getting the perfect gifts for friends and family, you also managed to put aside something nice for yourself. 😉 If you’ve been by the makeup department in the stores recently, you might have spied the new Chanel Sublimage Le Teint Foundation… and in case you are still wondering if that’s something to pick up for yourself (or put on your secret Santa wishlist), here are my thoughts!

I am rather excited to be able to share this post with you today… When I first started blogging, I wanted to be as broad as possible, introduce as many interesting and new brands as I could, as quickly as I could. But over time, I find my personal tastes getting narrower, and with an ever-burgeoning collection, storage is becoming a real issue. For me, it has never been about wanting to own them all, but to choose the best of them… and sometimes the cutest of them all! And this season, the most adorable award has to go to RMK’s 2016 Christmas Collection that is mysteriously themed “Once Upon a Dream“.

It is the season for holiday collections, and I have lots to share with you. But ever since I started at my new firm, the days are passing in a blur, and by the time I get home at night, I just pass out. So, with a pipeline of goodies and limited bandwidth to express myself out here, the usual first in first out policy takes a back seat against prioritizing limited editions. But even in spite of it all, what I have been burning to share with you, is something that I’ve been absolutely loving to bits lately…. the new La Mer Skincolor Collection!
