{Golden glows}

And when I say Ultime I mean the ultimate. I think the name is quite fitting because for me, this is the leader in cleansing oils of those that are available from the current beauty brands.

The sublime cleansing beauty oil features 8 botanical ingredients to nurture your skin. Shea butter, jojoba oil, camellia oil, olive squalene, ginger root, safflower oil , soy and corn oil all work together to brighten, smooth, soothe and cleanse the skin deeply. View Post


Mon Shu’s Face Palette - Karl Lagerfeld & Shu Uemura

{My Darling Shu Uemura}

Shu Uemura first came in to my life when I became fascinated by their intricate lashes – even though I don’t really wear false lashes. I love the creativity that brand emulated and this collection – with the iconic Karl Lagerfeld is no exception. For most, the shades will be a little too unusual. But for fashion and beauty lovers of the world it’s just enough of a mish mosh of colours to feed their eccentric looks.

{Smoky Velvet Palette}

This palette is pricey at $85 but it does include eyeshadows, a highlighter and a blush. I love the textures that are printed in to the palette (inspired by fabrics Karl had worked with) and find the khaki shades to be a little strange but beautiful.


{The pigments}

The powders don’t offer a crazy amount of pigment so it does take some layering to add intensity. The blush however, I adore. What a beautiful cherry red!

Are these shades something you’d invest in this palette for or is the name behind the collaboration enough to make you want it?
