It has been awhile since I reviewed any YSL makeup, and it feels to me that the brand has recently renewed its efforts to better engage with its fans. After what seems like a long hiatus, YSL is finally giving us new innovative products, rather than relying on fancy limited edition packaging to drive sales. So, armed with a fistful of new releases, let’s delve back into the world of YSL!

Korean beauty is making huge waves lately, and one of my favourite departmental stores in Singapore has just opened up an entire beauty hall dedicated to Korean brands! And when it comes to the crème de la crème, there is none as highly coveted as Sulwhasoo. This is a brand steeped in Asian heritage, and leverages on ancient wisdom to turn Korean medicinal herbs into effective beauty ingredients. Consistent with the high regard that Asians place on a fair and even skin tone as a standard of beauty, Sulwhasoo has developed a highly popular Snowise Brightening Line, and today I’d like to introduce 2 of their best sellers.

I am fast becoming a convert of La Prairie products, not merely because they are so luxe (oh that they are!), nor the gorgeous packaging… but the products that I have tried so far seem to bridge both realms of skincare and makeup perfectly. When you are spending a pretty penny, it helps to know that the skincare goes to work deep inside for the long-run whilst still making you look instantly prettier. Likewise, makeup with actual accountable skincare ingredients does make a difference in this over-crowded market! I have been testing out 2 new additions to the La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal collection, and would like to introduce them to you today.

I strongly believe that pollution causes oxidative stress on skin and contribute to pre-mature aging, and so I was excited to try out Origins’ latest skincare franchise – Dr. Weil Mega-Defense!

Did you know that as many as 1 in 2 women globally claim to have sensitive skin? That’s an astounding statistic, and it means that everyone of us would have experienced sensitive skin at some point in our lives, and can identify with the redness, itchiness and stinging sensation often associated with overly-reactive skin. And it is no wonder as we live in polluted cities and stressful lifestyles, all leading to increased levels of skin sensitivity. To help care for our skin, Chanel has introduced the new La Solution 10 to soothe and defend against external aggressors. I have been using it with the newly formulated UV Essentiel, which not only further protects the skin, it also stimulates skin’s natural protective power.

Sunscreens are di rigor these days, we all know about the potential aging effects of UV on the skin. But why just use boring plain vanilla sun screens when you can get so much more out of 1 product? La Prairie takes us a few steps ahead with its latest Cellular Swiss UV Protection Veil, which combines antiaging treatment, hydrating benefits, and makeup primer capabilities in one!
