I know it’s a little bit too early, but let the Christmas happiness begin! You know that feeling when you see brand new beautiful unused makeup and your senses tingle up? That’s how I felt when I got my hands on the latest Lancome L’Absolu Palette & Christmas Collection (it was heartbreaking to even start using the makeup and break its perfect-ness). The makeup products you see in today’s blog post – and which I’m wearing - are part of Lancome’s Limited Edition Christmas Collection.
Besides their Instagram flatlay-worthy packaging (seriously though, any Lancome product from the holiday collection can be used in any flatlay situation), I love the unique colours from this collection. The collection sees holiday glitter and colours (think dazzling gold and royal purple) in its palettes and products. The eyeshadows from La Palette 29, go from nude to smoky and if you’re not feeling too ‘dark’ that day, go for the nude and brown tones like I did. I love the shimmering and shiny texture the eyeshadows give off, and it would complement any festive party dresses you’re wearing!
Another one of my favourite products from this holiday collection is the Artliner. The gentle felt eyeliner glides on nicely with a bronze base and subtle gold glitter – it’s not heavy at all and gives such a festive and playful look to your eyes, and has me immediately falling in love with glitter eyeliner, which I have never worn before!
I finished today’s look with lipstick from the same La Palette 29, Hypnôse Waterproof Mascara, and La Poudre 29 Sparkling Loose Powder, all which you see featured in the images above.
Besides makeup, this holiday season, you can also register for Lancome’s Makeover and Facial services online (Sign up for the facial or makeover service before 20 Oct and receive exclusive early bird gifts). You can also get your hands on Lancome’s Christmas Sets and Limited Edition Holiday Make-Up Products at Paragon Atrium from 29 October – 4 Nov; islandwide at all department stores, La Maison Lancome @ Capitol and all Sephora outlets (excluding Sephora MBS) from 5 Nov onwards.
There is one particular set which I would personally get as a gift for my mom or beauty addict friends, and said set is Lancome’s Blockbuster Christmas set: It is basically a beauty box filled with all your Lancome essentials, I know I would be so so stoked to receive this set. NEW MAKEUP!!!
Look beautiful and feel happy this holiday season!

If you’ve been following my blog over the years, you’d know I’ve been a loyal user of Benefit Cosmetics. You’d know I love their Hello Flawless liquid foundation, Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, Browzings eyebrow wax and powder, and Benebalm tinted lip balm. You would also know that it is so easy to get your fill or refill of Benefit Cosmetics because they are available in ALL Sephora stores worldwide, and if it seems being in all Sephora stores worldwide isn’t enough, Benefit Cosmetics is now available on Luxola.com! To the uninitated, Luxola.com is basically your online one-stop makeup market hall – they carry tons of your favourite beauty and skincare brands (some not even available readily in Singapore) online, and all you need to do is click a few buttons and your makeup products will be shipped to your door-step!
In today’s blog post, I’m featuring four key Benefit Cosmetics items available at Luxola. They are the 1) World Famous Neutrals in Easiest Nudes Ever nude and brown eyeshadow palette, 2) World Famous Neutrals in Sexiest Nudes Ever dark and purple-hued eyeshadow palette, 3) Stay Flawless primer, 4) Sun Beam liquid matte bronzer.
To recreate the looks I’ve shared above, apply a thin layer of Sun Beam to give your face that slightly tanned sun-kissed look on your face. For the eyeshadows, to get the best effect you can get out of the palettes, use a brush and apply a thin layer of Stay Flawless primer so the eyeshadow can last longer on your eyelids! You can start off the day with the nude palette, and if you’re heading out at night for dinner or for an event, you don’t have to remove the nude shades, you can just go over them with the darker shades available in the Sexiest Nudes palette!
Benefit Cosmetics now available on Luxola.com.

Outfits from Polo Ralph Lauren
Working on yet another campaign with Polo Ralph Lauren for their F/W '15 Collection. This season sees a lot of signature Polo Ralph Lauren silhouettes and cuts: you get the monochromatic tailored pieces in the form of blazers, vests, and trousers in pinstripe textures, you also get the casual glam aesthetic via the sweatpants trend that's all the rage, and we can not forget their iconic wool sweaters - this time, in earthy tones of brown and army green, which I'm really into right now.
Be it in the city, or out traveling in the mountains, be dressed in preppy chic fashion by Polo Ralph Lauren! There's always something about their clothes that make me look and feel polished - even my closest friends can't help commenting that they love all my Polo Ralph Lauren looks all the time! x
Polo Ralph Lauren is located in Singapore at Shaw Centre.
