Holly Go Lightly (SGD 16.00)

When I heard the name for the first time, it immediately reminds me of Breakfast at Tiffany where Audrey Hepburn plays the role of Holly Golightly.

A generously sized pudding to wrap yourself up in a comforting Christmas blanket of Lime Oil, Patchouli Oil and Cinnamon Leaf Oil. Its festive spice fragrance is like bathing in a hot toddy, perfect for getting you in the Christmas spirit.

 

Hot Toddy (SGD 14.00 for 100gr)

Hot Toddy is a glittery shower gel comes in red color to make you feel ready for the festive season. It is a warm, almost hot, shower gel that resembles a spicy drink.

Make bath time a little sweeter with this pink peak of a bubble bar. Crumble under running water for mountains of glistening bubbles topped with a magical pink mist.

Snow Fairy (Prices start at $14.00 for 100g)

A festive favourite and cause for celebration, Snow Fairy is back with the same sweet, magical scent of soothing comforting Vanilla. This year her sparkle is suspended, thanks to Carrageenan Extract, so it distributes evenly through the product.

Shooting Star (SGD 14.50)

Paint the swirling colours of the night sky across the surface of your  bath. Drop this in your bathwater and watch it shoot around the bath releasing magical pockets of colour before leaving a trail of quicksilver.

Pick up The Christmas Penguin for a mood-boosting bubble bath that will set you up for the festivities. The beautiful blend of Orange Flower Absolute and Sicilian Mandarin and Lemon Oils revive and refresh. Crumble under running water to create bubbly glaciers and snow drifts.

Star Light Star Bright (SGD 12.00)

Softening Cocoa and Shea Butter moisturise the skin while Extra Virgin Coconut Oil deeply hydrates. Refreshing Ginger and zesty Lime Oil inspire positivity and will give you an extra spark during dreary winter months. Crush this under running water and marvel as the star slowly melts, leaving a silvery PET free Lustre spread across the water in a magic trail of star light through turquoise coloured water.

 

Lastly, there’s this Snowman Fun (SGD 18.00). I tried making snowman during the events with this snowman pack and it was really fun! This Snowman Fun can be used for soap and other bathing needs. It feels like clay and you can make anything that you can imagine, it’s a fun pack to be shared with your friends! :)

For those who were captivated by the Disney film Frozen – ‘Do you want to build a snowman?’- well now you can, complete with scarves and hats! The black coloured FUN is made from carbon black coal, to give your snowman real coal eyes! Scented with the Carrot Soap fragrance we had in our Easter range making you feel seasonal all round, the bar also contains Sicilian Lemon oil and Bergamot Oil giving your bath a fresh and invigorating feel.

Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea Fragrance Collection

Kiehl’s presents a new range of scent of their aromatic blends. This time, it’s a unique blend of Vetiver and Black Tea.

The new fragrance, Vetiver & Black Tea, gives patrons an invigorating woody fragrance selection that captures the earthy, sweet aroma of Vetiver and the soothing, citrus-like aroma of Black Tea.

IMG_0006

 

As a tea lover, I like the non intimidating smell of this scent. I can smell the black tea in this product – it gives a relaxing aroma to my mind whenever I apply it.

Some of you might not be familiar with Vetiver; Vetiver is originally grown and harvested in Haiti. Vetiver is also a vital plant for supporting soil retention and irrigation control. This oil gives a woody scent with sweet-sour accents and a woody-balsamic undertone. Whereas for black tea, I am sure many of you are familiar with black tea and might be drinking it almost everyday. Ceylon black tea is harvested in the high mountains of Sri Lanka and it’s dried and fermented afterwards. With this method, we’ll get the soothing and citrusy fragrance of black tea.

IMG_0008

This range comes with Softening Body Cleanser and Softening Body Lotion, The body cleanser is sulfate free and the body lotion is silicone free.

Aromatic Blends Vetiver & Black Tea Body Cleanser 250ml retails for $33

I personally love this range especially the shower gel, It has a unique smell that only this range can offer. It gives a relaxing aroma without being too intimidating. Try to visit Kiehl’s store and give this range a try!

Shu Uemura Holiday 2014 Collection x Karl Lagerfeld – Shupette

Here we are coming into the last quarter of the year. I can’t believe time flies just like that and Christmas collection has started to flow in. This year, Shu Uemura launches a holiday collection together with Karl Lagerfeld with a Shupette theme. Shupette is the snow white long haired pussycat princess created for this collection.

The collection consists of many items, but in this post I’ll focus on few items as photographed below.

IMG_9965

 

Now let’s start with the star of the collection, Shupette has it all Lip & Eye Palette. 

This palette won my eye sight for the cute shupette print at the front. It’s made of mirroring metal and it also comes with a fury white pouch. The fury white pouch makes a good compliment for this palette – it fits perfectly and matches the theme.

 

IMG_9967 IMG_9966

 

Shupette has it all Lip & Eye Palette consists of 8 eyeshadow shades and 6 lip shades.

Here are the eyeshadow shades in the palette (starting from top left)

E1: is a black

E2: this shade is described as dark grey but on my swatch below, I can see that there’s a mixture or grey and violet shade.

E3: burgundy brown with some silver shimmers

E4: described as Toffee shade –

E5: this shade is called as shupette blue – it’s a light cloudy blue with metallic sheen.

E6: described as cool grey, looks like white to me and it also has a metallic sheen finish

E7: rosy shade with metallic finish

E8: light beige champagne with metallic finish

 

L1:Lip bonbon magenta

L3: Lip bonbon violet

L4: Lip bonbon pale pink

L8: Lip bonbon salmon pink

L5: Lip bonbon deep red

L2:Lip bonbon baby pink

I must say that the quality of these eyeshadows varies. Some shade performs much better than the other shades. Shade E1, E2 and E3 are smoother and pigmented than other shades. Some of the other shades are just quite dry although the colors are very pretty.

Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation Review

Hi!

Today I have a newly acquired foundation to share with all of you today. It’s Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation. I picked this up about three weeks ago. This would be my first Tom Ford foundation products.

IMG_9910

Firstly I must say that the packaging caught my immediate attention. Foundation with pump function is not something unusual, but when the pump comes without a cap, it’s something interesting for me. After having so many foundations and putting them in my drawer, some foundation caps are just not as long lasting as I wish it would be. The design of this Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation comes with a cap that’s twistable and pumped. I feel that this packaging is safer for me who likes to place my foundation bottles in a tight drawer.

IMG_9908

IMG_9911

 

There are 15 shades available in total, but as of three weeks ago, we have not received all 15 shades yet. I picked up no 13 in buff, it seems that it suits me the best for my asian skin. I tried on shade #4 bisque too, but I find that it’s too dark for me.

Texture wise, the foundation feels thicker than most foundations I owned. I usually use one and a half pump to use all over my face. It gives me a medium coverage and it’s buildable to full coverage. What I love most about this foundation is that – although it comes in a thicker consistency compared to most of my foundations, it doesn’t feel heavy at all. It also provides a very natural finish without being over dewy nor matte. There are not many foundations that I would be comfortable wearing without setting it off with setting powder, but for this one, I love the look and the finish of Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation on its own. My face looks very natural and looking fresh.

To apply this foundation, I tried using my fingers to blend it all over my face. It’s very easy to blend with my finger; To me, no much blending needed when using this foundation. I just had to make sure that this spreads all over my face evenly and covers my face with enough coverage. I tried blending this foundation with Tom Ford Cream Foundation brush too, but I personally prefer blending it with my own finger.

IMG_9912

 

Here’s some shades comparison to few other foundations

IMG_9950

 

And here’s how my face looks with Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation

 

IMG_9934

Overall I think Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation has performed up to my expectation for being able to create a smooth looking skin on me without making my face looks too glowy.
