Holiday Collection: shu uemura x La Maison du Chocolat

When you see holiday collections start sprouting out, you know that Christmas is coming. Technically, Christmas is 8 more Fridays! I will be trying my best to look out for all these Christmas collection to post every Monday so that it will help you while you are searching for your Xmas gift. I love chocolates and these shu uemura collection is a must have for all chocoholics. I do hope their products are also chocolate scented like the Too Faced chocolate palette.

Their Rouge are $38. My favourite colors are raspberry puree (rouge unlimited), deep cranberry (matte) and raspberry syrup (matte).

shu uemura cleansing oils are one of their best sellers. I have tried samples of it before and it really removes your makeup thoroughly without leaving your face too dry. The only thing is this cleanser is quite expensive but worth a try as the 150ml is about $65.

I have never tried their eyeshadow before but the colors look amazing. I would gravitate more towards framboise berry because I prefer a pinker look when it comes to eyeshadows. not sure on the consistency and pigmentation of the product, will test it when I go to their stores.

This powder looks nice but I am not a fan of shimmery products (unless is eyeshadow).

The lip liner looks really good, I am tempted to try star dust rose.

This was the first product that attracted me to this collection. It is really cute and compact to carry around. Rose petal macaron is a my favourite color.

shu uemura is also famous for their eyelash curler. If you are looking for a good and durable lash curler, this is a good time to get, plus this is a limited edition.

I am like OMG at the assorted hatbox but the cost is really O.O

The collection is available from 1st November. I do hope this collection is chocolate-scented too. I am excited to check them out in stores!

Missha x LINE Friends Collection

This is the second collaboration Missha is doing with LINE Friends. I believe this is only available in Korea, so hopefully Singapore will also get to buy this. This packaging is adorable and I would definitely want to get a few products if I can get my hands on it.

I remember Missha cushion are slightly lighter as compared to Laneige, so if you are using 21 (for Laneige), you need to go a color up unless you prefer brighter or ‘glowier’ look, then you can still choose color 21.

Price: 23, 000 (~SGD$28.30)

Additional cushion puff refill in Brown and Choco which is uber cute. :)

Price: 5500 won for 4 piece. (~SGD$6.77)

B.B Cream with SPF 42 PA+++ (50ml)

I have never tried their B.B cream but color looks good and packaging is adorbs again. Price range is quite affordable for a mid-range bb cream.

Price: 15,800 won (~SGD$19.47)

 

The eyeshadow palettes are absolutely adorable, I would prefer the pinker range as the colors are more natural and for everyday application.

Price: 26,800 won (~SGD$33)

Mascara. Both looks black so I think is just the design that is different.

Price: 9000 won (~SGD$11.09)

Wish Stone Tint Water Gel

The lip colors are gorgeous and packaging is absolutely adorable. If I can only buy 1 item from this range, I will surely choose this.

Price: 6500 won (~SGD$8)

Tangle Jelly Pearl Plumper.

This product works like a lip plumper to make your lips appear fuller and ‘juicier’. The texture is jelly-like consistency. It can be used together with the tint water gel to have a more shimmery gloss finish.

Price: 8000 won (~SGD$9.85)

Hand creams, it is probably in 4 flavors, I will try to translate and update again.

Price: 3000 won (~SGD$3.69)


Nail Polish set. Good set to own if you are a nail polish lover.

Price: 9000 won (~SGD$11.09)

Perfect Cleansing Oil in Tissue aka makeup remover wipes

Price: 5000 won (~SGD6.16)

Artistool To Go Kit

The pouch looks pretty nice – the Brown design looks embroidered. This is good for travelling. I have a set of Missha brushes and the bristles are really soft. The price is quite reasonable but a good brush goes a long way and with proper care, it will last for a while.

Price: 20,000 won (~SGD$24)

There is supposedly an eyeshadow and brush set but I see from the website is OOS

Special Set

Price: 38,000 won (~SGD$46.81)

Collaboration with LINE friends will never go wrong and this set is absolutely adorable, especially if you are fans of Brown, Cony, Sally and Choco. Sadly, this is not available in Singapore. Fret not, you can still get it from ShopandBox and Airfrov. You can click on the link to find out how to use this 2 service to get your hands on limited edition products overseas.

Through the years: Ayumi Hamasaki

Recently the biggest news in the Japanese entertainment industry is Namie Amuro’s retirement on 16 September 2018. Namie Amuro was one of the few pioneer artists part of the J-wave fever from the late 1990s to early 2000s. This got me thinking about one of my favourite Japanese singers of all time, Ayumi Hamasaki.
