Are you blessed with naturally long, luscious, fluttery lashes? I wished I was, but sadly mine are quite the opposite. They are of ok-length, I think, but stick-straight and downward pointing. My heavily hooded lids and oily undereye complicate things further, smudging even the most “waterproof” of mascaras. To get my lashes looking presentable, I use as many as 3 different products on a daily basis to prime, volumnize/lengthen, and set. So imagine my pleasure when I discovered the 1 mascara to rule them all – By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush Double Effect Mascara!

It’s been an amazing year in many ways, and I hope you’ve enjoyed all the product reviews or introductions here on the blog. Reality is, it takes much more time to write a skincare/bodycare/haircare review than makeup. On the other hand, I think it is far easier to get through those products, and so I’ve taken to documenting my empties to better speak to my fondness of some of these stuff that never makes it to the blog. There are way too many to go into detail here, so please feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below!

Estee Lauder’s Double Wear foundation has been well loved by generations of women before us, and it often gives me a thrill to know that girls are sharing a secret makeup weapon with their moms. If ever you needed a full coverage foundation that can be relied upon to stay on all day, you would probably have reached for Estee Lauder Double Wear. The line has seen several extensions over the past few years, and today we are celebrating a completely fresh take on the famed Double Wear… Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup!

I have been on the road for almost 2 weeks now, and I had originally hoped to find time in the evenings or weekend to do some writing, but it has been an exhausting trip so far. I was glad to have been able to take a peek at the second Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder Collection before I left, and had the chance to play around with a select few pieces… so here are my thoughts!

It has been awhile since I reviewed any YSL makeup, and it feels to me that the brand has recently renewed its efforts to better engage with its fans. After what seems like a long hiatus, YSL is finally giving us new innovative products, rather than relying on fancy limited edition packaging to drive sales. So, armed with a fistful of new releases, let’s delve back into the world of YSL!

I think I must have squealed out loud one evening, when I saw a big black Chanel gift bag waiting for me, tied exactly the way the boutiques do it. It was a curious thing, because their makeup and fragrances usually come in white paper bags, only the fashion boutiques use the black ones. And inside were 2 drawstring dust bags, a larger one that looked just about the size of a handbag (!!), and a smaller mysterious one. I was completely mystified because I really wasn’t expecting to receive a handbag of course, but my surprise was magnified when I pulled out a blanket! It’s no ordinary blanket of course, and it’s more a throw than a real full-sized blanket, but one with the full Chanel logo embroidered on it… that’s pure luxury! From the smaller dust bag, I uncovered the latest Chanel Cruise 2017 Makeup Collection, and then it all makes sense – it’s time to lounge beside sun-drenched pools, and head out to the resorts!
