Whenever Shu Uemura comes out with a new collection, I get excited! They’re always so fun and quirky and full of life! This time Shu Uemura paired up with Yazbukey to create this iconic pop collection and I can’t wait to share it with you. I was particularly excited about this collection because I actually saw it on instagram prior to getting my hands on it and I have to say the eye and lip designs were certainly eye-catching. If you haven’t yet discovered Yazbukey is actually a fashion design house known for wacky pop jewel designs and what I see body part motifs. It’s certianly iconic in its own right and such a cool and unique brand that Shu Uemura has chosen to collaborate with for their Spring 2015 collection. You can read more about Yazubukey on their webiste, here.

One place I’ve always wanted to visit and got to check off my list this trip was going to a provincial town called Grasse on the French Riviera. It is undoubtedly the perfume capital of the world and where Gabrielle Chanel herself made the iconic fragrance – Chanel No. 5. In fact, it’s where most “noses” (those who are in charge of creating the formulas for your signature perfumes) are trained in Grasse to distinguish between thousands of scents. In fact, 2/3 of France’s natural aromas are produced here and most iconic fragrances are made in Grasse! It was a priviledge to include this on my trip to the French Riviera and I can’t wait to share with you 7 Facts I learned about perfume while in Grasse. Let’s start!

Hello from London! I’m currently on my annual London trip to see my sister with my family and to enjoy this amazing place so apologies for my lack of updates. I’m also visiting a few other countries while I’m here, mainly Switzerland & France take advantage of the cheap budget flights around Europe. I’ve been hard at work filming my vacations and my Switzerland vlog is up already on my youtube channel! I’m heading to France tomorrow morning and will start in Nice first!  I don’t want to leave my blog dusty so I thought I would let you know my top 5 picks to go make-up shopping in London! I hope it comes in handy if you’re thinking of visiting here too.

The perfect sunscreen for me is one that is lightweight and blends super well so that it leaves no white overcast and still offers me the protection I need. It’s been blistering hot in Singapore these days and a sunscreen is of utmost importance for everyone to be integrating in their skincare routine. A great sunscreen prevents an array of skin issues like pigmentation and even wrinkles further on in life. The main issue is that most sunscreens look super white on the skin and are too oily which makes make-up junkies like me super sad because how am I supposed to put make-up on something like that? Thankfully, I’ve found two sunscreens both from KOSÉ that are super lightweight and leave no overcast at all. They’re the KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Milk SPF 50 PA++++ and KOSÉ SEKKISEI Sun Protect Essence Gel SPF 50 PA++++ that I’ll be reviewing today.

Today I’m doing a review of a new foundation find – the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40 PA++. I’ll be giving you my honest opinion and a quick tutorial on how best to apply it. Foundation has always been a must-have for me – it corrects uneven skin and redness and provides a neat base for the rest of your make-up. Bobbi Brown thought why not mix the best of skincare with an amazing foundation so they came up with this – the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation.

The coolest thing about this foundation is that Bobbi Brown has tapped into TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to come up with ingredients like Cordyceps, Bamboo Grass and Lychee Extracts. Cordyceps is a type of mushroom that has super health enhancing properties and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Bobbi Brown has combined these ingredients with signature skin-tone correct pigments in a process called bi-phase cold fusion that allows the skincare actives to stay potent and to fuse seamlessly with foundation pigments. What you get is a super fine emulsion that floats over the skin surface so that your skin looks smoother, firmer and more radiant. As Bobbi Brown says -”This will change your skin – inside and out”. All in all, it’s a very interesting concept.

I’m always on the hunt for a good sunscreen that does well under make-up. Most sunscreens out there leave a very oily residue and a white overcast when applied which often leaves your foundation slipping and sliding when you apply it over top. I’ve been using Chanel’s newest sunscreen lately – the Chanel Sublimage La Protection UV in SPF 50 and have been loving the light texture that almost disappears when applied. This sunscreen is great under make-up which I appreciate so here’s my review!

The Chanel Sublimage La Protection UV in SPF 50 combines both anti-ageing skincare and sunscreen into one with an advanced formula that targets DNA and the stem cell microenvironment. For anti-ageing action, Chanel has incorporated Vanilla planifolia, vanilla from Madagascar known for its regenerating properties that helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles while liquorice root extract lessens pigmentation and dark spots. It is also known for its creamy texture that turns into a powdery matte finish after application.
