Shu Uemura x Maison Kitsune for Holiday 2015


You know we are nearing to the end of the year when beauty brands have started releasing the holiday collections. One of the brands that always catches my attention is Shu Uemura; every holiday seasons, Shu Uemura never fails to surprise me with the exciting collaboration. This year they have made another exciting collaboration with French designer Maison Kitsune.

The collection gives me a fresh spring vibes rather than Christmas’ party vibes. It’s interesting to see a brand releasing something rather unusual compared to other brands in the market. In this collection I am looking at lovely combination between pastel shades and deeper shades, and nothing too bold for me to wear.

In this blogpost, I have the Beauty Remix Smokey Eye & Cheek Palette in Plum.

A fun palette to play around and create an unusual smokey eyes. The palette has a mixture of plummy shade and orange-y shades. The colors are fun to create a young energetic look! In general, the shades has good texture especially the pearl texture. I found some fallouts especially on the glittery shades though, so I try to be more careful when applying the glittery shades.

The blush is a major surprise for me! It looks rather scary in the pan (screams: ORANGE!) but surprisingly it looks very wearable on my cheek. It looks peachy on my cheek and can also be worn as a contour cum blush to me.




Now onto the Drawing Pencil, here I have the plum and indigo. I love the color payoff of these two and how these are able to last on my lash line for a good 6 hours without smudging! The special Maison Kitsune design on the pencil is adorable too, I love the golden stamps details there.

The Laque Sparkler is one of the winner in this collection! I love how beautiful the color is and how opaque the color is on my lip. It takes me about two layers to get full opacity on my lip. Here I have the shade Plum Shimmer – a deep pink that leans towards red. It’s non drying on my lips and I like that I don’t need to retouch the color even after plenty glasses of water. It stains on my lip for a while, so at the end of the day I would clean my lip with lip make up remover.




a Shu Uemura collection wouldn’t be complete without the cleansing oil. In Maison Kitsune x Shu Uemura collection, the clensing oil released is from the Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil. By far this is my favorite cleansing oil! I’ve been using this range for a few years and Ultime8 range still secures a top spot in my heart. The oil is rich and it’s ultra moisturising, my skin feels well hydrated after my cleansing regime with Ultime8 range.

The collections is now widely available in all Shu Uemura boutiques and counter in Singapore

Chanel Reverie Parisienne for Spring 2015 – Tisse Fantasie & Blush Camelia Rose


Hi lovelies!!

Today I decided to post my thoughts on Chanel Spring 2015 – Reverie Parisienne. I am sure many of you would have read the reviews and looked at the products in real life, but let me share my excitement and to show how happy I am to be able to purchase these :)


Firstly I picked Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose. This blush caught my attention at the first sight. Just look at how pretty the sculpting of the camelia in the pan, I simply can’t resist getting this and make it part of my collection.

There are two pink tones in this blush; one is darker and the other is lighter. The swatch below was taken at home with indirect sunlight, with the darker shade on the left side and the lighter shade in the middle. The shade on the right side the shade when both shades are mixed. I detect a very very slight shimmer in it but it was not captured very well in this picture.




Another item that I picked unexpectedly during my trip to Chanel store is this Les 4 Ombres in Tisse Fantasie. I didn’t plan to get any les 4 ombres but the light khaki shade is simply pretty that I just had to caved in.




Chanel les 4 Ombres in Tisse Fantasie turns out lovely when it is swatched on my arms. I really like how it glides on softly on my arms and the colors shows up nicely. The pigmentation was decent for all these shades, it’s not overly pigmented nor too sheer.

  • Top left – Coral shade with satiny finish
  • Top Right – a shimmery white shade. It’s a little too white for me that I have to think of how to work on this color on my eyes without destroying the whole look on me.
  • Bottom Left – a shimmery khaki green with golden shimmer. This one gotta be my favorite shade from the palette for its beautiful shimmers and versatility.
  • Bottom right – a dark brown with slight red tone and golden shimmers.


Overall I think the quality of Tisse Fantasie is quite balanced, the pigmentation comes up nicely on my eye lid. I didn’t experience any fallout for most colors but for the khaki shade, I did see some fallouts. Below is my FOTD look with Tisse Fantasie and Chanel Camelia Blush. 



Have you tried any products from this collection? What’s your thoughts? :) Share with me!

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Love Glow

Trying out new make up is always something I am looking forward; especially when the product is widely discussed among beauty addicts. I picked this Charlotte Tilbury Blusher in Love Glow quite a while ago and had fun trying and using it.





Charlotte Tilbury blush – or they call it Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher, comes in a burgundy casing. When you open the casing, you’ll see a gold outer lining with the word “Charlotte Tilbury” engraved in it. There’s no brush or velvet pouch given.

You’ll also see that the blush comes in two toned. The outer shade is meant to be used for upper cheek bone and the shade in the middle is for the apple of the cheek. The idea is smart, but I’d rather use both color mixed and spread it across my cheek.

When it comes to the texture and pigmentation, I’d have to give a two thumbs up! It’s so finely milled, very soft and I love the feeling when my finger touches the blush; it is very smooth. The pigmentation of the blush is nice – not overly pigmented but the color pops but nicely even on the first swipe.






When the two toned swatched together, the blush has a satiny and slightly shimmery finish. I love how it provides me with the glow without being overly shimmery.



Have you tried any of Charlotte Tilbury blush? What’s your thoughts on the blushes?

Dior My Lady Blushes in 002 and 003


I am going to share some pictures of Dior My Lady Blush 002 and 003 which I picked up recently. I picked this almost a month ago in Dior Backstage. This blush was initially a Japan exclusive product and I am glad that it has made its way to Singapore.

Dior My Lady blushes comes in two shades which is 002 and 003.





Dior My Lady blush packaging comes in a silver metal casing that is hefty. It also comes with a velvety pouch and a mini kabuki brush. The design of this blush is beautifully designed in Dior signature cannage pattern.

The numbering of Dior My Lady blush seems to be different. I bought this from Dior Backstage in ION Orchard, and 002 is the pink while 003 is the coral shade. However my friend Linda from Silverkis (she has one of the most beatifully written blog :) ), swatches 002 as the coral and 003 as the pink one. I guess the naming is different in Japan and in Singapore.


Dior 002 is a cool toned pink.




and 003 is the coral shade





The texture of these blushes is not considered to be one of the softest blush I owned. But pigmentation wise, I think they are fine to work with.





As of Sunday 20 April 2014, Dior Backstage ION still holds a few pieces of both the pink and the coral shade. If you’d like to pick it up, I suggest for you to check and reserve first :)

Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Swatches


It’s time for me to write a simple thought on one of the most talked about products this season in beauty blogosphere. This spring, Shu Uemura is launching Tint in Gelato. Tint in Gelato is a one stop product for both cheek and lip. Tint in Gelato comes in 12 shades in 4 different shades category. The shades category are PK for Pink, CR for Coral, AT for unique shades, and BG for beige.



The picture above was the same picture I use in Mika for Shu post which I post previously here.

Tint in Gelato comes in a silver tube glass packaging with a see through glass for us to see how much products we have left. Like most Shu Uemura product, I like the simple and sleek design of this product. Although it is simple, the product still looks nice and classy.





The applicator of tint in gelato is rounded with a small hole in the middle. What I like about the applicator is that the applicator feels more flexible, making my application on my lip seems better. It spreads the color nicely on my lip.

Tint in Gelato comes in a mousse texture that makes it feels creamy. It is very smooth and it is very well pigmented. The color pops nicely in one layer. The finish of Tint in Gelato is a semi matte finish. However to get an even color on my lip, I like to apply two thin layers. The applicator is a fine tools to be used for my lip. On my cheek, I usually dab the applicator onto my cheek and blend it with my finger.

This product typically last up to 5 hours on my cheek. While on my lip, they stay put for about 3 hours ( i drink a lot), but the stronger shade will usually leave a stain and the stain can go a long way especially when I reapply the product one more time.





Here are the swatches on my lip. This is Pk03; it is a cool toned bubblegum pink. I like to use this shade on my cheek more than on my lip. On my cheek, it brightens my entire face. However I feel that this shade emphasises my dry lips; so to tackle this issue, I’ll apply a thin layer of lip balm before applying this.



And here’s CR01, a lovely coral shade. I love this shade as it looks nice on both my lips and my cheek. I have this on my make up bag as it is a to go product for both cheek and lips.

Here’s the full swatches of all the 12 shades


 Tint in Gelato is available in Singapore and retailing at $38
