After being all sweet and girlie for the past couple of seasons, RMK strikes a bold statement with its latest FFFuture Collection (“fast forward future”) for FW2017. This is a special collaboration with Japanese fashion designer Taro Horiuchi, who is known for his sleek architectural aesthetics. And befittingly, the entire collection feels cooler and edgier than ever before.

I was just joking with a colleague that it is a sign of age when one starts to find comfort in familiarity. There are so many new liquid lipstick launches of late [check some of them out here] that it is actually refreshing to see the return of a well-loved line. Beauty lovers should be familiar with YSL’s cult-favourite Vernis à Lèvres range of glossy stains in all its iterations – classic, Pop Water, and Vinyl Cream. This year, YSL is relaunching the Vernis à Lèvres collection with new shades and adding a something completely unique – Colour Amplifiers!

Just not too long ago, I was professing my love for all things non-matte when it comes to lippies, but today I am going to make an exception for Lancome’s new Matte Shakers!

I’m soooo so glad to see a return to satin lipsticks! Or well… anything but matte. I get the matte trend was chic, and makes a bold Instagram-worthy selfie; but they are not always flattering nor practical on more matured lips. And much as I love a bold lip, I need my lipstick to wear well throughout the day without drying out my lips. With its latest Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick, Givenchy has managed to strike the perfect balance!

I have always thought the term “millennial” referred to the teenagers who were born in the early 2000’s, but only just found out the “official” definition starts from the late ’70s or ’80s. Which made me feel younger than I really am, and much more relevant than I had hoped. And no brand speaks stronger to the millennial-lifestyle than Nudestix, with their tag line of #gonudebutbetter. It’s all about effortless makeup – skin-loving colors and fuss-free application, allowing us to get out of the door and on with our lives. This Summer, I’m clearing out my vanity, and keeping things simple with just a handful of products. And here are some recent releases from Nudestix you can consider for your next vacation!

Somehow launches seem to have been delayed in Singapore this year, and so it was only a month (or so) ago that the Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylos made their way here. I was really excited about them because they have been so highly raved all over blogosphere and on Instagram, and almost every shade looks like it belongs in my wardrobe. It was with great dilemma that I finally picked out 4, I’d have gone home happily with more but sanity prevailed. I tried to pick a mix of shades, and finally settled for Inventor, Warrior, Icon & Liberator.
