Guerlain seems to have taken a different direction with its makeup collection this year; and I am pleased to see the brand return to its grown-up, fully luxurious and elegant aesthetic for Holiday 2017. Inspired by the festive spirit of the twenties when American Bohemians settled in Paris, the likes of Ernest Hemmingway and the exuberance as described in his posthumous memoir titled “A Moveable Feast”. Guerlain’s Holiday 2017 collection is a tightly curated 6-piece offering dressed in black and gold, every one as decadent as we deserve.

I was a little bit of a gaming nerd growing up, and could spend all day journeying through all the various levels of Super Mario Bros in search for Princess Peach, with my friends Yoshi and Toad. It is really cool to see Nintendo stage a comeback with these characters, and poke some cheeky fun at itself with the pixelated Mario cast. The marketing geniuses must have figured out that female gaming nerds have a propensity to turn into beauty junkies, because the new Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros Collection for Christmas 2017 had me squealing like a kid all over again!

Are we in a time warp? The year is rapidly coming to an end, and yet here I am, rewinding the stories and taking us back to Fall. The good news is, these are all permanent so there is no time like the present to indulge in some retail therapy. For some ideas on stocking stuffers, consider the new Guerlain Kiss Kiss Matte Lipsticks and Intense Liquid Matte Lipsticks!

The best part about year-end holiday collections is the arrival of Christmas coffrets!! Somehow they seem like more of a Japanese tradition, but if you can get hold of them, they make really great gifts. More importantly, these coffrets often feature limited edition items that are not normally offered by the brands. With that in mind, I’d like to show you the Lunasol Winter 2017 Candle Night Collection!

It has been a year since Anna Sui launched the redesign of its packaging, and this Fall we are returning to the Mysterious Fairy Tale where butterflies flitter, leaving trails of joyous colour and sparkle. This culminates in a wondrous World of Kaleidoscopes for Holiday 2017. I have a little from both collections, and would like to share them with you today!
