Nobody does soft and elegant shades better than the Japanese, and spring is truly the season for such looks. I was surprised to find a navy blue eyeshadow palette amongst a sea of pinks and pretty pastels, and curious to see how a nautical themed look might work out for spring!

Makeup trends come and go, but one thing that remains – women throughout the centuries desire smoother, brighter, clearer skin. And nobody understands that better than the Japanese… This Spring 2017, Shiseido two heart-stoppingly beautiful powders to bring out that radiant glow!

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!

Beauty you’re It! IT Cosmetics has earned a cult-like following in the US over the past few years; and with the aim of helping women with rosacea and other skin problems achieve beautiful, healthy skin… IT Cosmetics seems like the perfect soulmate for me. When I heard that IT Cosmetics will be launching at Sephora internationally, I knew this brand was going to fly, and if you hadn’t already picked some up for yourself, here is a quick run-down of some of their top sellers!

Hello dear friends! I took a short trip to visit my sister and nephew in Germany over the weekend, which is kind of a crazy thing to do considering the trip took me halfway around the world and back in just a matter of days. But there is a higher purpose to everything, and it was one of my best experiences I have with them. I hope you got the chance to check out some of my video snaps on my Instastory, if not, you should definitely follow me on Instagram to be notified in future #shamelessplug!
For now, I would like to turn your attention to a couple of new releases from Shu Uemura!

Dior surprised me this year by turning out a collection inspired by milky polka dots… judging from the colors, there is a sort of 70’s retro flare to the inspiration, which is a rather strange direction to go for a summer collection. I wished they had taken the prints all the way, print them all over the cases and emboss them on the surface of the powders! That would have made the entire collection more memorable, but as it is, the entire collection from the 2 eyeshadow quints down to the bronzers look very reminiscent of the last 2 summers. I really wasn’t planning on picking anything up at all, but then I saw Lily’s post and was immediately sold on the Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder! And as I was in the boutique already, I picked up 1 of the Polka Dots Colour & Dots Manicure Kits out of curiosity, and spied the Diorblush Sculpt in stock at last and picked 1 up as well. Since I have just a random selection of things, this is not really a typical Summer 2016 collection review, but a bit of a shopping haul post for a change!
