We love the Sonia Kashuk Powder Brush, yes we do! 😀 That about sums up how I feel about the powder brush in a nutshell. Now, onto slightly more detailed thoughts.

Sonia Kashuk Powder brush

The Sonia Kashuk Powder Brush is available at Target stores or Target.com and only available in the USA. Mine came courtesy of a good gal pal to whom I am eternally grateful for getting these for me.

I love how the handle of the brush is curved. It allows it to fit nicely in your palm although I’d have preferred if it was slightly thicker so it fits better. The brush head is full and oh! so soft! I cannot quite describe how soft it is, but if you can imagine airy cotton wool on a brush, this is it.

Every girl needs a string of pearls. Actually, every girl needs a diamond or two, but who’s counting eh? 😉 Well, I like pearls. A long string of pearls or a pearl choker lends an air of elegance unrivalled by any other bling. Somehow, to me it screams “I don’t need bling to look glamorous!” and with pearls on, you don’t.

Pearl necklace

A nice string of pearls can be very pricey though so most times, I’m just looking and gawking at places like Mikimoto, but never daring to touch. However, one day, while my mom and I were doing a spot of shopping, we came across a Shinju Pearls counter at Isetan (The Gardens) where we saw a long string of pearls that caught our eye. It was exactly what we were looking for, and imagine our surprise when we saw that it only cost RM99 for the long strand.

Since we aren’t the sort with bottomless wallets, we thought RM99 for a long string of freshwater pearls that can be worn in any number of ways, was a great deal. We experimented with wearing it as a double strand, triple strand, knotted, tied with ribbon and worn as a choker … the possibilities were endless and limited only by your imagination! Ok, so you don’t wrap it around your wrist like it did, but yes, that’s all one strand of pearls :)

Inspired by nature and the environment, Lancome’s team of Color Design Artists have put together a mini-collection of products to reflect the beauty of nature based on their inspirations. Each mini-collection can be used to create a day and/or night look and you can be assured that each set of colors will match perfectly so there goes your headache of wondering if green eyeshadow will go with pink blush 😉

Each mini-collection has its own theme, and is sold both individually starting from RM65 or as a set in a special limited edition box starting from RM600. Here are the 6 mini-collections in no particular order. You know, they actually make a good starter kit for someone just starting to get interested in makeup :) There’s a poll below so please take part!
