Today marks the last day of year 2012, in less than 6 hours, we will be celebrating the arrival of year 2013! Are you excited? I am! Not only for the new year with new hopes, it’s also because I found a new babe in town, it’s call The Lilac Box.

Sneak peek at thelilacbox, I like the sleek packaging and signature purple ribbons

What’s is The Lilac Box? The Lilac Box is an online subscription-based sampling programme. The Lilac Box lets subscribers discover and experience 4 or 5 different products every month via samples, and allows them to buy the full-size product at a huge discount if they like what they tried.

Maybe you’d ask, there are so many beauty boxes in Malaysia market now, what so special about The Lilac Box? Well, The Lilac Box is the only one that delivers premium beauty and cosmetic samples in a box every month directly to subscribers. If a brand can be found in a pharmacy/ drugstore, you will never find it in The Lilac Box. Ever!

Imagine brands like Burberry Beauty, StriVectin, Roberto Cavalli, Kérastase, Chloé, Calvin Klein, Redken, Marc Jacobs, DeCléor and many more. These premium brands seldom give out sample, but now, we get to exclusively test new and interesting brands in the comfort of our homes, without the hassle of a salesperson breathing down our necks, isn’t it cool? For a beauty junkie like me, I can't wait to try Kérastase Elixir Ultime, and all the new fragrances and cosmetics from these premium brands.
For just RM 35 per box, we will receive premium beauty and cosmetic samples at our doorstep. Subscribers enjoy savings when they subscribe for 3 or 6 months.

An exquisite collection with a surprisingly unique edge - Shu Uemura 2012 holiday collection in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld

Inspiration story, the birth of mon shu girl

“I design with shu uemura make-up because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”
                                                                                                            -Karl Lagerfeld

Inspired by shu uemura products, Japanese traditional culture and contemporary art Karl Lagerfeld created “mon shu girl”.

Merging the worlds of shu uemura and Karl Lagerfeld, “mon shu girl” is an adorable new icon outfitted in the designer’s symbolic white shirt and black tie.
The delightful “mon shu girl” collection is a celebration of Japanese pop and European chic. This unique, adorable and chic mon shu girl has captured my eyes when it launched in Nov 2012. I can’t wait to bring the whole collection home because shu uemura is my favorite cosmetic brand and it’s limited edition always run out of stock very quickly.
Although I do wish to collect the whole collection, but my wallet doesn’t have enough money so I’ve collected a few items only. Let me share my confession with you on the shu uemura mon shu collection that I’ve brought home.  ;)

Purifies Body and Soul - Discover the wonder of LUNASOL's Purifying Makeup with Ms Yumi Takada

I always love to attend media event that I could learn new tips and tricks from the event. Thanks to Kanebo Malaysia, I was invited to discover the wonder of LUNASOL's Purifying Makeup with Ms Yumi Takada on a sunny Saturday noon last month.

Before I share the tips with my dear readers, let me introduce you Ms Yumi Takada who flew all the way from Japan to KL to meet us in the event. Ms Yumi Takada is the senior makeup artist and trend analyst, manager of Beauty Research Institute for Kanebo Cosmetics Inc. She joined Kanebo Cosmetics as Beauty Consultant back in 1987 and being promoted to current position. It’s such an honors for me to have the opportunity to meet and learn from the much experience makeup guru.
And for my readers who wants to learn about makeup, do keep reading this as this’s a long post with all the useful tips to lift and transform yourselves into refined women every day. As LUNASOL (Luna means MOON and SOL means SUN, light and shadow, or response and motion) was named to express the many faces and inner mysteries a woman posses. When the moon goes to asleep and the sun rises… applying makeup every morning can be regarded as a ritual that brings out the refinement sleeping within you. It’s a ritual that elevates you to a higher level – not just a habit or daily chore. That is the LUNASOL philosophy.
What is Lunasol Perfect Step? At each stage, from base and specific makeup to finishing, follow three principles below;

1) Well groomed skin – Apply a makeup base and foundation for well-groomed skin

2) Light & Shadow – Create depth by using a natural gradation of light and shadow

3) Facial Structure – Complete your makeup by balancing colors to enhance your facial structure

Ms Yumi Takada showed us how to apply the makeup base and foundation at the beginning of the workshop.
