Is it summer already? I’m actually planning a vacation to Gold Coast Australia with the fam this June, a spot of hiking mixed with some beach time (even though it’s technically Winter down under). So I definitely won’t be needing too much makeup, which is why Chanel’s latest Les Beiges collection resonates so well with me. The new collection heralds in a “new era of essentials”, and is designed for women in search of authenticity and freedom. Les Beiges is all about natural healthy glowy skin, and for the first time, we get to experience microfluidic technology in a brand new makeup product.

Merry Christmas! I trust that you are having a blessed time with your loved ones this holiday season. It has been an unbelievably busy month for me, and I spent a week in Maldives with my family doing absolutely nothing and it was the best ever! My 6-yo boy (with my help) will be posting up videos of the trip on his youtube channel (here!) starting with a feature of our seaplane ride, so please show some love by hitting the link to subscribe!
I received a ton of PR gifts this season and unfortunately was not able to share all of them here on the blog in time. Particularly, the wonderful folks at Lunasol sent across the entire AW2018 makeup collection a month ago. I was really torn between just posting pictures on Instagram for the sake of expediency, but as I dug into the individual pieces, I realized they’re really too beautiful to miss out on the blog. So am posting them here today, full swatches of everything and my quick thoughts on them – enjoy!

Whenever I think of fool-proof makeup that lasts and provides complete coverage, I think of Estee Lauder’s famed Double Wear foundation. If you thought that was the last word on the subject, Estee Lauder now ups the ante with a new Maximum Cover Foundation! And as we head into the cooler and drier season ahead, you might also want to check out the new Flawless Hydrating Primer. Read more after the jump!

Rouge Bunny Rouge is one of those ethereal brands that fly imperceptibly under the radar, but loved by any and all who have ever encountered the brand’s products. They don’t turn out new products very often, so when they do it is always widely-embraced by fans. That is how I found myself squealing when a surprise package showed up recently. In it was these 2 mysterious tubes of makeup that I’d like to show you today… the Rouge Bunny Rouge Light Corrective Eye Primer and Natural Defining & Contouring Liquid.

Su:m37 is a premium Korean beauty brand that is best known for its Secret Essence. The brand was recently launched in Singapore, and I got the chance to try out some of its products. Whilst skincare testing takes some time (my initial reaction is very positive so far!), I’d like to introduce you to a couple of makeup bases today.
