I’ve been raving about this cushion to my friends for months now, but in the whole holiday madness, I had neglected to post a formal review about it… and it is high time I rectified it! Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Cushion is the latest cushion that had come my way, and it has been permanently in my makeup pouch since I received it. And while we are on the topic of base makeup, I’d also like to introduce you to the nifty new Ibuki Smart Filtering Smoother that will keep your makeup game strong throughout the day!

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!

Happy Chinese New Year! It’s been 3 continuous days of non-stop feasting and visiting with relatives, and in my free time I’ve been trying to catch up on some photography. I started formulating this post last night, but fairly soon into it, I decided that I wanted to expand the topic slightly. Hourglass only recently arrived at Sephora Singapore last fall, and today I’d like to introduce 2 of their recent base makeup releases – Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation and Ambient Light Correcting Primer in Luminous Light.

The Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder makeup collection has certainly taken the world by storm, and seems to be completely sold out on her website. For many of us living outside of the US though, the collection has just officially launched at stores. I had provided full swatches of everything in this post here, and I trust that has been helpful for making up your minds about which pieces to pick up. In case you are still on the fence, and wondering how to make that bold Eye Palette or orange Chilean Sunset lipstick work, or whether you really need that Morning Aura… let me try to answer all your questions and show you a few makeup looks using the pieces that I picked up.

Estee Lauder does not do designer collaborations very often (the last one that comes to mind is the Courrèges Estée Lauder Collection from Summer 2015), and when it chooses to do so, it does it exceedingly well. And this Fall 2016, Estee Lauder has partnered up with the icon of style – Victoria Beckham! It is a succinct and highly curated collection of only 14 items, in a uber luxe packaging that has fans enthralled all over the world. The collection launched in the US and UK 10 days ago, and is mostly soldout within days. Thankfully for us, the collection will be launching here in Singapore and other parts of Asia soon. To help you make up your mind whether to call dips on these covetable pieces, here are the complete swatches of the Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder Makeup Collection!

You know the season’s changing when the colors change, and base products turn richer. This year we didn’t quite see too many super sheer, natural skin-like foundations; instead, the cushion technology has taken the world by storm. Much as I like some of them, I still find myself reaching for my foundations; and with my recent bout of breakouts, prefer something with higher coverage and a cream texture that is able to smoothen out the bumps and accompanying dry flakes. And so, it was perfect timing when I received SUQQU’s latest base duo – comprising of a Treatment Primer and Extra Rich Cream Foundation!
