In what has quickly become a favourite capsule makeup collection release of mine, the Chanel Les Beiges 2018 grabbed my fancy quite quickly. I previewed the items in the inaugural Beauty hors d’oeuvres segment, and I’ve finally had a go at some of the key releases.

As a range, the Les Beiges collection focuses on light makeup, laying emphasis on beautiful, healthy glowing skin, barely there makeup and a very natural vibe. It is no surprise therefore, that I fell for it. That is the sort of makeup I wear, and the sort of makeup I gravitate towards.

Those who prefer stronger, bolder colours may find the collection insipid. But this year, the Les Beiges takes on more colour, and that for me, is both a good and bad thing. Good, because it may appeal to a wider cross-section of the public. Bad, because it isn’t as fool-proof as it used to be.

I have a few key pieces of the collection, and will walk you through them as quickly as I can. You know how long-winded I can be 😛

Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser : Affordable, Effective but does not smell of roses

I’d been using the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser for a while now, and didn’t realize that it was fairly new to the Pixi Beauty range till I tried to find some reviews on it. To my surprise, there aren’t many out there. I’m not sure now when I bought it. It could be early this year (2018) but it was during one of my Cult Beauty purchases. I must have tossed it into my cart without thinking too much about it.

I have used the famed Glow Tonic and like it. I also have tried a few other products by Pixi Beauty – the Rose Oil, Glow Tonic wipes, Double Cleanse, Cleansing Balm, just to name a few – but I often forget to showcase them LOL 😛 It was opportune that I have received a few inquiries about the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser, after showing a picture on Instagram a while ago, that I finally remembered to blog about this one.

I am partial to a cream cleanser, and this being by Pixi, which I have high regards for as a brand, had me curious.

Fulfilling Wanderlust : Some practical Japan travel tips for Tokyo and Kyoto

Ohayo Gozaimasu peeps!

Wow, 2 weeks has just flown by for me, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time away. It isn’t something I think you want to hear, is it? LOL! But seriously, I have enjoyed my time away from the blog and social media, and it’s been refreshing to mind, body and soul.

I did share and update my going-ons on Instagram, and I thank you for joining me and for telling me you enjoyed the content. I did have some major adventures while on holiday, so it made for interesting stories to tell LOL!

japan travel tips

For those of you who’ve preferred to stay off social media and have no idea where I was, I was away in Japan. It was a trip I decided to go on with a friend, rather spontaneously early this year, and one I learned quite a lot from. While I kept my travel tales to Instagram and shared a lot of them during an Instalive chat on the weekend, I did receive many questions. It turns out that so many of you are planning to visit Japan at some point or another, who had a lot of questions, so, I thought I’d share here some practical tips on travelling in and around Japan – Tokyo and Kyoto – based on my personal experience. Japan has changed a lot since my first visit, pre-tsunami in 2009. I even had to apply for a tourist visa back then!

If you have more tips to share, please do chip in, and if you have questions, ask. If I can’t help you, someone else will be able to! 🙂 This isn’t a travel diary, so don’t worry. I’m not going to bore you with the details 😛 It’ll just be some basic, practical things you might want to think about before and during your trip.

After last week’s marathon blog content, I think you’re about as wiped as I am LOL! I haven’t blogged daily for a couple of years now, and I’d forgotten how much it really takes out of a person. I take my hats off to all the bloggers who are still churning out daily content, because guys, you deserve all the accolades you get. I can’t go there again. It’s too draining – physically and mentally.

With this in mind, I thought it would be nice to kick back with some little beauty hors d’oeuvres, or bite-sized appetizers in the beauty world. These are little snack-bites of some upcoming new releases that you can keep an eye out for, if it catches your fancy.

There are one or two that I will go into greater detail at a later date. But for now, grab an iced lemonade, kick back in your most comfortable chair, and enjoy these little beauty morsels 🙂

Cushion Foundation Week 3 : Round-up and overall thoughts

cushion foundation week 3 roundup

♥ © Copyright of My Women Stuff Original Full Post is found here: Cushion Foundation Week 3 : Round-up and overall thoughts

Thus ends the Cushion Foundation Week 3 – a series I never really intended to produce, but arose out of opportunity. After my last foray into cushion foundations in Week 1 and Week 2, I was quite set in my decision. Cushion compact foundations are for me a non-essential makeup item. I still prefer my liquid foundations, or BB Creams, and I stick by my preference.

I was quite pleased in my journey, to have discovered the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion because it quickly became a firm favourite of mine. It is still the only cushion foundation I voluntarily use. The others I have, I use them as and when I remember, but they aren’t items I reach out for.

cushion foundation week 3 roundup

Cushion Foundation Week 3 arose not due to my desire to own more of these cushion things, but due to the enduring nature of this form of base makeup, that I predict will be around for quite a while to come. You will notice that all of them were generously provided by the respective brands, for which I am grateful. Barring Sulwhasoo, I don’t think I’d actually buy any of them. Yet, I was glad of the opportunity to try them, because I discovered the Shiseido cushions, that I would have otherwise overlooked.

To answer the many questions and requests from many of you, who have requested for reviews of cushions from other brands e.g. Shu Uemura, YSL and Lancome, just to name a few, my apologies. My desire to accumulate more of these is really low. But if I ever come by them in the near future, who knows. Perhaps I’d do a Week 4 (God forbid! LOL! 😀 ) I think you’re sick of this as much as I am 😛

But I did notice something interesting after doing this week’s comparison, that I thought I’d share with you 🙂
