How was your week? Work has been busy but productive, I’m really excited and hoping that this landmark transaction I’m working on goes smoothly. More importantly, I’ve been trying to take time for myself, and made it for 2 barre classes this week which felt really good. This weekend I’m determined to have a bit of fun, and I’ve got inspirations for a couple of product shots. So balance is key, and it never hurts to have something exquisite to start the day with. And I think we all can do with a little Albion Elegance makeup in our lives!

I’ve fallen in love with Sulwhasoo recently… as a brand it is not new to me, but it is a slow and incremental journey of explorations. The more I try and further I venture, the more I realize just how much my skin loves Sulwhasoo’s products! Their skincare is top-notch and extensive (I recommend you check these out); and the brand is now expanding its makeup offerings, starting with the new and improved Perfecting Cushion EX, and a couple more accompanying products!

Hello from Germany! I’m here on my annual work pilgrimage, which also gives me a nice break away from the usual hustles of life back home. In between the harried packing preparations for this trip, and the usual jetlag upon arrival, I managed to squeeze time in for a couple of new releases from Shiseido. There isn’t a single release from the brand in the past year that I didn’t enjoy, and I was even more thrilled when I received a package containing a couple of my previous favourite luxury foundation and powder! Shiseido Future Solution LX is the most luxurious line from the trusted Japanese brand, and leveraging on all the exquisite skincare benefits is the Total Radiance Foundation and Loose Powder.

I was absolutely stunned when the mailman showed up recently with a surprise package from the lovely folks from Kose. There were so many wonderful goodies inside, from gorgeously presented makeup coffret sets to the ultimate luxurious facial powder from Cosme Decorte. Since Christmas is looming in front of us, I don’t have enough time to fully test and review each item, so I will just share some pictures here today for you to experience their beauty, in case you would still like to run out to grab some additional gifts (or to hoard… no judgement from me!).

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 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!
