5 Things: New in Beauty (Week 3 March 2015)

1. Make Up For Ever Step 1 Primer
This is a skin equalizer that triples the power of your foundation. It makes the makeup easier to apply, optimize makeup result and improve the staying power. It comes in 11 variations that allows you to choose your makeup concern - whether you're looking for something that hydrates the skin, or give smooth result, or matte finishing.

2. M.A.C. x Julia Petit Collection
M.A.C. is collaborating with blogger-cum-makeup artist, Julia Petit for a new collection. The collection reflects the urban landscape of São Paulo, in sun-kissed hues to help consumers channel their inner Brazilian bombshell. This collection contains 3 lipsticks, 1 lipglass, 1 liquidlast liner, 3 eyeshadow duo, 1 lustre drops, 1 powder blush and 1 prep + primer powder. Alongside with the Spring collection, M.A.C. also partners with Chinese artist Bao Bao Wan for another interesting collection. 

3. Benefit Porefessional License to Blot
Benefit has pretty amazing primer under their Porefessional line. The License to Blot is a new addition to their primer which mattify oily areas such as nose bridge, forehead and the chin with one instant swipe. This product also helps minimize the appearance of pores and absorbs excessive oil on the surface area.

4. Smashbox x Donald Robertson #bingtobasel
Another amazing collaboration happens between Smashbox and artist Donald Robertson. (I'm following him on Instagram but I didn't he is 'tat famous! @donalddrawbertson if you are interested). Donald's artwork always features a pattern of red lips and it is no surprise that this partnership features a classic red lipstick. The shade is called #bingtobasel. This red suits any skin tone and it is definitely a must-have for every woman. 

5. Christian Dior J'adore Hair Mist
I have a habit of spraying perfume to my hair. I find that the fragrance last longer throughout the day and it keeps me smelling fresh. And now, there's hair mist by Dior to do the job. Ideally perfume does the same job, but if you are looking for a specific hair mist that matches your J'adore perfume, this is the one to go for.

5 Things: New in Beauty (Week 1 March 2015)

1. SK-II Cellumination Auractivator CC Cream
The new SK-II Auractivator CC Cream is formulated with Day Soft Aura White, to create irresistible glowing skin. Day Soft Aura White complex is composed of UME extract, Niacinamide and concentrated Pitera. After trying for 4 weeks, the Auractivator CC Cream activates your aura radiance to illuminate your bare skin. Check out how you can win one tube worth RM274 on my previous post <<here>>. 

2. Estee Lauder x Courrèges Collection
I always have a traditional perception on Estee Lauder's products and packaging. However, this Spring, Estee Lauder is collaborating with André Courrèges to come up with a capsule collection that is futuristic and innovative. I am exceptionally drawn to the Courreges Super Gloss, which is a lip gloss with an unusual packaging. It resembles eye serum where you can twist the right amount of product and apply directly from the metal tip. This collection is available at selected Estee Lauder counters. 

3. Too Faced Selfie Powders 
The new Too Faced Selfie Powders are a mini set of eyeshadow that consists of 3 colors - pastel yellow, toasted brown and pastel lilac. I personally don't think it is a good investment, but for Instagram lovers this is definitely a fun product to have. Check out the hashtag #TFNoFilter for the looks that created by this palette. 

4. Burberry S/S15 Runway Palette
For those who are consistently following the latest fashion trend, you should get this blush. The blush is a hybrid of highlighter and blush. It gives a glow on your face once applied, like a model on the runway. This product is used during all Burberry's S/S15 shows. The shade is pretty neutral which can match different skin tones. 

5. LUSH Mother's Day Collection
Although LUSH is not available in Malaysia, you can easily get it from our neighbor country, Singapore. Check out the new Mother's Day Collection (although it is a little too early for that), Check out <<this video>> for the haul for all the products. If you love bath products, this may be something which you want to purchase.
