2012 November 20, Tuesday

Are you a fan of KOSÉ‘s COSME DECORTE AQMW makeup and skin care range yet? If you are, you’d be happy to know that they will be releasing this very limited edition coffret this xmas!

It includes an eye shadow quad that would suit most, if not all, skin tones.  A lip gloss that is pearly pink with their very pretty signature “butterflies” encased in the tube.  A loose powder for the face and body with coloured pearl pigments of red, blue, purple and other hues to bring out the best of your skin tone that comes with a very pretty and luxe powder puff that is decorated with a rose ornament that makes the whole dolling up experience more beautiful…

Look out for it in stores soon!  😉



lips like lacquerware

2012 July 12, Thursday

The beautiful lacquerware has been a big part of the Japanese culture since some 9000 years ago when the oldest known example of it was discovered at a ruin in Hokkaido.  Over the years , it has become popular the world over, adding elegance and classicism to any room.

And now, Shiseido introducesLacquer Rouge.  12 new shades of brilliant coloured lip lacquer with great colour pay-off and staying power.  Looking like a lip gloss in a tube, it gives you the convenience of a lip gloss with the intense colour of a cream lipstick.

The lacquerware would take a few steps to come to perfection from getting the mold to adding the coloured lacquer coat to polishing the final top coat to achieve its shine.  But with Lacquer Rouge you’ll only need one steady sweep across your lips and you’ll get long-lasting, intense colour & shine without the stickiness.  How’s that?



more Spring colours…

2012 March 6, Tuesday

Guerlain is coming up roses with les Roses et le Noir (The Pinks and the Blacks in English) with a collection of mostly pink shades for the eyes (like the 2 new palettes of Écrin 4 Couleurs) and lips and a brand new mascara to the G de Guerlain family.

Remember Rouge G de Guerlain?  The über luxe lipstick that has it’s own mirror open up when you slide out the lipstick.  An exceptional mascara with a similar mechanism has arrived!  It’s refillable too!  So you just need to get the refill when your mascara runs out.

There’s also a pretty pretty illuminating powder in the shape of a gardenia and 4 shades of Rouge G.  Both of which are limited editions.

And it’s more flowers in bloom over at Laneige.  A limited edition collection designed by celebrated illustrator Sanna Annuka.

Love in Bloom is a fun and happy collection from the packaging to the colours it presents.  A very versatile palette of 9 eye shades that will take you from day to evening, garden weddings to disco glam, a two-tone cheek palette that contours, adds glow and highlight, and 5 potted lip glosses that’ll make your lips pop!  I think it’s gonna be a tough choice to make between them 5!
