Chanel Christmas 2009

Amongst Mademoiselle Chanel's collection of personal belongings and curios, the eye of Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, was drawn to a small golden cage.
A mysterious miniature set with turquoise-coloured stones encases two tiny birds with emerald eyes and bodies of white pearls.
Enchanted by this singular object, Peter Philips decided to make it the theme of the Christmas 2009 Makeup Collection.

Les 4 Ombres de Chanel
Quadra Eye Shadow
Personalised eye makeup.

The advanced texture and the multiple harmonies of LES 4 OMBRES allow you to create infinitely varied and sophisticated makeup effects : matt, powdered, satin, metallic and intense metallic.
LES 4 OMBRES eyeshadows are manufactured by a process exclusive to CHANEL, and combine originality and quality of materials. The intensity and multiplicity of colour effects are due to the high concentration of mineral pigments used to obtain the required effects, matt, gloss or satin. The presence of purified oil gives great ease of application and the gloss effect. Contents : 1.2 g.
Use one colour only for a soft, natural look, two colours for contrast. For a more sophisticated contrast effect, use three or four colours. Moisten colour with a clean cotton wool bud dipped in Toning Lotion, to enhance the hold of your makeup. Can be used as an eyeliner, emphasising the eye in a toning shade.

Shimmering Tweed Highlighter

Once again, Les Tissages Lamés de CHANEL reveals treasures of refinement. Its duo of copper and gold shades, sprinkled with bronze pearly particles, intertwines like the weave of CHANEL tweed.
The Christmas 2009 Collection limited edition slips into a shimmering dress and illuminates your complexion with a soft, warm and scintillating glow.

Dior New 2009 Christmas Look

As Collector Editions, two eyeshadow shades with sparkling crystals: an iridescent mauve and a bright silver, which beautifully enlighten the 2009 Christmas Look. Both shades are inlaid with glittering crystals, echoing the Star Product: Cristal Boréal.

For its very first partnership with the Swarovski House, Christian Dior Parfums adorns its new Star Product with the Aurora Borealis crystal, with unique multi-colored reflections. A true make-up jewel, Cristal Boréal contains a crystal-effect gloss for precious iridescent lips.
The Aurora Borealis crystal:
In the mid-1950s, Christian Dior asked the Swarovski House to create a crystal that evoked the reflection of the sunlights going through the famous Galerie des Glaces in Versailles. The Aurora Borealis crystal was born.

Clarins gold attraction face palette

Givenchy Les Poetiques

“From wintry winds to the winds of time, echoing melancholy’ s mire, beauty emerges so sublime, painting a landscape of desire.
At conformity, the mind rebels, yields to emotions running raw, in romantic dreams, elatedly dwells; why live, if not under passion’ s law?
Just as fireworks need darkness to give birth to colour, Romantics use shadows to exalt their passions and let flowers grow.
Born of winter and universal black, my 2009 autumn-winter collection exhibits its uncontrolled sensibilities and the strength of its passions.

Poetically, it borrows from the natural and enhances it with mystery.
The dream emerges... a bed of roses... a stormy night... a first kiss... in a watercolour of emotions.
Each woman has her mood, and each day, its surprise.
Like feelings that “flood ” the face, “LesPoétiques ” naturally reveals the high-romance femininity of the Givenchy Woman.
Each passion, and each woman, is unique.”


This sheer, sparkling powder illuminates skin with a warm, bronze-lit glow. Adds layers of shimmering light, wherever you want to highlight: face, eyes, décolleté. The Instant glamour compact to lift any look to the ultimate degree. Great for ladies who's going party!

Shu Uemura Christmas Collection 2009

Shu Uemura Christmas Collection 2009 (launching 15 Dec)

The way to use cleansing oil

I used to avoid any products with the name "oil" in it as I always have oily skin during my teenage day. Only after I've learn about the proper way to use cleansing oil.
First you must find out if the cleansing oil emulsify in water? As the olden days cleansing oil/cream does not. Which means the cleansing oil can be dissolve in water. Thus the very important thing to take note is to use them with dry hand/skin(no water on the hand/skin)first. Apply the cleansing oil over the face & do a gentle massage for a minute or so than wet your hand with clean water & massage again gently, by this time you'll see that the cleansing oil on your face have turn milky, rinse the face with plenty water.
For a long time, I have been pretty loyal to Shu Uemura's cleansing oils. In the past time, I once tried different makeup removers from Fancl and RMK (honestly, they are all excellent makeup removers). During that time, I always wanted to try DHC Deep Cleansing Oil because I heard many people rave about it.I was thinking to give it a try. And, the result was outstanding!
Compared to other cleansing oil, the texture of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is thicker. It is a little harder to spread over and apply on the face at the beginning. However, it dissolves makeup easily and quickly.The olive oil based ingridents deliver a gentile feeling,& It feels totally clean and supple after cleansing!

DHC skin care in Singapore Watson

I’m so glad to know that DHC products are finally in Singapore Watsons Stores now! (From 5th November 2009 in Bugis Junction,Compass Point, Ion, Ngee Ann City & Raffles City branches)

My first encounter with DHC skin care was quite some years back when I was traveling in Tokyo. What attracted me at that time was the Coenzyme Q10 lotion, as I wasn’t sure what’s Q10 at that moment, my Japanese friend tried to explain to me with his simple English about Coenzyme Q10, & I bought the product to try out due to me running out of moisturizing lotion at that time.

So what can CoQ10 do for your skin? In most people over thirty, levels of CoQ10 in the skin are below optimum, resulting in lesser ability to produce collagen, elastin and other important skin molecules. Besides this, CoQ10-depleted skin may be more prone to the damage by free radicals, which are particularly abundant in the skin since it is exposed to the elements. Thus, CoQ10 may boost skin repair, skin regeneration and reduce free radical damage. Furthermore, CoQ10 is a small molecule that can relatively easily penetrate into skin cells.

Watsons Singapore already has this range of Q10 products, other than their best sellers which is the Olive essentials range. I will also want to try out more of their skin care products!

Bourjois Effet Metallise

Was looking for metallic pencil liner for a photo shoot that day & manage to find this from Bourjois. This highly metallic pencil liner is ultra creamy and glides on smooth. Love the color! You can actually use it to line or fill in your entire lid but I must say the staying power is not that great under our hot sun though!
