Givenchy 2011 Spring Summer Collection Naïvement Couture

The impulse to seek gratification is driven by a sixth sense, making us eager for any and all sorts of sensations. A breath of pure air to be discovered or devised. Givenchy presents for spring 2011, the beautiful Naivement couture collection a build up the novel but of style. The colors are classic of the summer, with a focus on coral hues and not just for the lips! As you can see even eyes are so wonderful with an eyeshadow coral.
The Must-Have, Blush Gelée, is a rich elixir of youth, illuminating a self-assured candour with fresh energy. NAÏVEMENT COUTURE ("naively couture") is an autosuggestion of happiness. Skin bared to the sunlight, we purge our sensations and embrace our innocence in order to accept our feelings. The exhilarating purity of light, a gentle warmth, tenuous and sensual, that transports us to an apogee of emotion, to be reborn with a uniquely personal authenticity. A rebirth that makes sense of the sensorial and focuses on the essential.

Blush Gelée
A unique integrated soft foam applicator, with a very soft end, that slightly touches the skin to leave the ideal touch of emotion on cheeks! A skin-like buildable result : a very natural fresh rosy glow on cheeks, for a healthy “pinched cheeks” look…

Le Prisme Yeux Quatuor
Limited Edition
The Harmony - Candide Garden n°78
Brown and orange tones for essential eyes, awakened by a touch of fresh spring green.

A good friend of mine bought this "Most Snail Recovery Cream" from Korea for me to try out. This cream contains 88% component that snail slime which help to regenerate the skin cells. Was quite hesitated when I heard that is extract from snail, wonder does it smell? But to my surprise it doesn't and the cream is quite light in texture which blended with lavender, aromatic oils for natural healing.
After applying for few days I can feel that my skin become smoother and soft!

Fueki cleansing Cream

Saw this cute pot of cleansing product during my recent trip to Taipei! Found it at the Japanese beauty store- Hands Tailing(台隆at Mitsukoshi 新光三越near台北101). Can't really remember the price but I know is less than S$20.
They also have UV Cream,lip balm and Honey Lemon Mask but I only bought the cleanser to try out!
All Fueki items come in cute pots looking like a (dog?) face with a cap in various colors. This Cleansing Cream come in white and pink cab! The 130g jar comes with a yellow spatula to scoop out the Cleansing Cream. This is not a cream actually but a regular foaming face wash. Foams up to a super rich lather with just a few drops of water. This Cleansing Cream is better for oily skin even it does mention is for all skin type.
Overall this is super cute but it´s a bit on the harsh side, and is no good for people with dry skin!!!
You can take a look at their website -

Kit Chan's latest CD - 重译!

Have just received Kit Chan's latest CD! It's been a while since her last album & I really miss her singing!!! Especially love her Cantonese songs & as what Ms Chan mention,she've never done an album of covers because she've never felt comfortable or confident enough(which I really don't agree!!!:), I strongly know that she can do it better than anyone else! )
So finally, long waited for this amazingly beautiful voices to come back again!!! I really love the whole CD! It's so relaxing & feel so original!
There's total ten songs in this CD, 3 Cantonese(追/浪子心声/明星), 3 English(Home/One of Us/Bridge Over Trouble Water) & 4 Mandarin(兄妹/你把我灌醉/心动/遗憾) songs. All my favorite!!! You shouldn't miss this great album!
Please support our local artists by buying the original CD & not to download from others, or else soon we won't be able to listen to all this beautiful great voices in future!
