I may be a little behind the times, but it feels like I’ve only just gotten hold of the Lunasol Winter 2018 collection a few weeks ago. The first weeks of this year have been incredibly busy and with Ezra starting Primary School, I’m always out of the house before the sun rises, and dead asleep by 9pm. Initially I thought I’d have to do my makeup at work, but surprisingly the Lunasol Winter 2018 pieces are so easy to use that I’ve been living on it! Come take a look.

Hello 2019! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family and loved ones. My son started primary school yesterday, which is a new milestone for him and a whole new change for the entire household as we all have to adapt to his new schedule. In previous years I’ve made resolutions relating to (buying less) makeup and (doing more) social media, but this year I find my interests straying in a whole new direction. I’d like to commit to living more in the moment, finding new experiences and hopefully having more memorable vacations with my son. I may be back home but my heart and mind are still tethered to that glorious week spent in the Maldives, and in case you hadn’t seen our videos yet, please do subscribe and check out Ezra’s youtube channel here (shameless plug!).
It may seem odd to kick off the year with an empties post, but there is an immense sense of achievement when I am able to properly bin a bunch of products without a sense of waste, and to memorialise them here on my blog. 2019 had seen the launch of many brands in Singapore, not all of them new in the world, but they certainly took their time. There wasn’t anything earth-shatteringly innovative that I’d seen, and personally am feeling a little tired by many brands, with the exception of Chanel which keeps growing stronger with every season. As such, I find it difficult to select “bests” or “worsts” for the year, instead I go back to my staples many of which are perennial favourites as you will find out below.

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!

For the latest Eyes Collection, CHANEL presents us with new makeup products for the eyes. To supplement the brand’s already extensive range of colour point makeup for the eyes, there are 3 new releases that are bound to make their way into our vanities as staples.

Happy Monday! The lovely folks at THREE Cosmetics in Singapore sent me a wonderful package last month, and I’ve been waiting to share it with you. THREE Cosmetics is a lifestyle brand from Japan which prides itself on a holistic approach towards beauty and living. The range is almost exclusively sold in Japan, and so it was a major coup when it launched in Singapore last year. I had reviewed several pieces from their makeup line in the past [see here], and am excited to explore their latest base products and several pieces from their Summer 2018 point makeup range.

I have been incredibly time-strapped lately… work has been keeping me up late at night, and I cannot seem to find the time to blog. Increasingly, I am tempted to move more of my sharing and reviews to Instagram. Since many of you are also spending more time on Instagram, please let me know what you think in the comments below!
Regardless, there are always some collections (especially makeup) that I think deserve their place in history, for which I will always try to make it a point to share them in greater depth here. I love sharing beautiful pieces with you, and showing & describing swatches with you and make up looks. Especially when they are as lovely as the new Cosme Decorte AQMW point makeup this season!
