I may be a little behind the times, but it feels like I’ve only just gotten hold of the Lunasol Winter 2018 collection a few weeks ago. The first weeks of this year have been incredibly busy and with Ezra starting Primary School, I’m always out of the house before the sun rises, and dead asleep by 9pm. Initially I thought I’d have to do my makeup at work, but surprisingly the Lunasol Winter 2018 pieces are so easy to use that I’ve been living on it! Come take a look.

Another season heralds a new Tom Ford Soleil collection, and with it, the new Winter Soleil 2018 Eye and Cheek Palette. This palette reminds me of sunshine setting over the horizon, and is perfect for an escapade away from the cold northern winter to a luxurious resort, and it arrived just in time for my Maldives holiday!

Christmas is fast approaching, have you completed all your gift shopping and party preparations yet? I’m often overwhelmed by all the holiday excesses, and prefer smaller curated collections.

THREE Cosmetics has always favoured minimalistic functionality over excessive girlie frills in its product packaging, but I was still surprised by the stark black zippered pouch containing the latest Holiday 2018 palettes. Having relied on it for the past weeks though, I think the small palm-sized pouches and virtually destruction-proof packaging are absolutely brilliant for travels and on-the-go makeup. This season’s Art of Parties Collection feature 2 makeup palettes, and the one I have here is called Life of the Party.

Shu Uemura is all grown up at last!! After years of giving us kawaii holiday collections featuring furry Shuppette and Mario bros, and kitschy graphics from famed artists; Shu Uemura strikes out on a gourmet note this Holiday 2018 with La Maison du Chocolat! The collection puts a new spin to wearable art as each piece is perfectly wearable on a daily basis, and are scented (subtly and elegantly) to resemble the finest chocolates.

Hello from Cologne, Germany! This is my 3rd business trip this month, and hopefully the last for the year. What a difference a couple of month made… it was at least partially sunny when I was here last September, now winter makes its dominance noticeable with grey skies and fog. No better time to whip out the 2 new palettes from Hourglass for my personal lighting crew. Launched exclusively for this Holiday 2018, check out the swatches below.
