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!

Chanel really blew me away with its Le Blanc Collection this year… I had reviewed the color makeup pieces before, and today I would like to show you the other key item from the collection that you should not miss.

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!
