Hello! I hope you’ve been enjoying the mini series over the past week! I was traipsing all across China for work during that time, and flying into a different city every day combined with a red-eye back home over the weekend have left me somewhat unbalanced. Knowing that I will be lugging my suitcase with me all the way and that I wouldn’t have much time nor the occasion to prep super fancy makeup looks, I decided to pack 3 items from By Terry’s Spring 2018 collection with me, and they made all the difference!

It doesn’t quite feel like April yet, does it? I know it is still snowing in some parts of the world, so we can still appreciate the tender glow that Guerlain is presenting us with this year. In any case, I can never get enough of the beauty of Guerlain Meteorites (there is always a tin on my vanity), and regardless of the season, there is always room for more Meteorites Glow!

Chanel is killing it this spring!! The Neapolis Collection [reviews start from here] is so bold and fresh, although I know some people found it a little overwhelming when it is still covered in snow outside. If that is the case for you, then you will certainly enjoy the new Dernieres Neiges de Chanel Collection! This is a capsule collection of makeup that is part of the annual spring Le Blanc release. Originally designed to target the Asian market, Chanel has now made the range accessible globally, though still in keeping with the Asian aesthetic of soft pearly pastels for a youthful luminous look.

I hope it is still Spring where you are at, because I have a lot more to show you. It feels like the year is on accelerators, and I won’t be surprised I wake up tomorrow to find half the year has gone by. Let’s make the moment count, by taking a walk through the pretty RMK Spring 2018 Makeup Collection! Titled Chic Light, RMK has created a whole new collection of novel products to bring out that spring-time glow. Expect sheer colors that reflect dewy freshness, and lots of gorgeous pastel hues. I have swatches of the entire collection, enjoy!

Sorry for the radio silence! I’ve spent a couple of days skiing at Winterberg with my team, and then last weekend in Bruxelles. I really missed skiing, and I think I’ve gotten the hang of traveling alone and actually rather enjoy it! Bruxelles surprised me with its charm, it’s almost like going somewhere in France, except the people are friendlier and speak English. I’ve uploaded the highlights of my trip on my Instagram stories so feel free to go check it out there.
Today, I’m popping in to wipe off this dusty blog and update you on some new lipsticks! Matte lips are not going anywhere soon, especially when they come with a nice creamy texture and satin finish. You’ve met the Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bars last fall [see here], now check out the 6 brand new shades for Spring 2018!

The coming Lunar year will feature the Chinese zodiac of the dog, and Innisfree celebrates that with one of my favourite characters – Snoopy! I have really fond memories of my adolescent years spent with the cast of Peanuts, and their laid-back yet incredibly insightful philosophies about life. Snoopy never says a single word, yet that self-assured grin of his always makes me feel good about myself. Special occasions, especially Valentines Day, is always a big deal and well celebrated in Snoopy’s world, and so it is apt that all the elements come together nicely with the latest Innisfree x Snoopy Collection.
