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!

After giving us a truly fantastic cushion earlier this year [see here], Estee Lauder has taken a further step towards making applying and touching up our foundation on the go even more convenient! The new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup is a truly innovative product that combines liquid makeup and applicator in one slim portable tube.

You know the season’s changing when the colors change, and base products turn richer. This year we didn’t quite see too many super sheer, natural skin-like foundations; instead, the cushion technology has taken the world by storm. Much as I like some of them, I still find myself reaching for my foundations; and with my recent bout of breakouts, prefer something with higher coverage and a cream texture that is able to smoothen out the bumps and accompanying dry flakes. And so, it was perfect timing when I received SUQQU’s latest base duo – comprising of a Treatment Primer and Extra Rich Cream Foundation!
