Memoirs of a Geisha and her 3-hour makeup routine

Geishas Memoirs of a Geisha and her 3 hour makeup routine

I don’t know about you but I have a fascination with Geishas. For the longest time, I’ve been yearning to watch a Geisha performance and was glad to have that opportunity with Kaden from Miyagawa-chou in Kyoto, a renowned Geisha group who was invited by Biore to perform at the Luxe Art Museum and at the same time, show how the Biore range of makeup removers help keep their skin flawless and supple.

Japan Fashion Week Spring & Summer 2011

I don’t really care much for fashion weeks but I do try to check Japan’s whenever I can remember because their collections tend to come with interesting designs that are either playful or eccentric.

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Products

A few weeks ago, I was sent the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid (SHA) range, comprising the SHA Moisturizing Lotion, the SHA Hydrating Essence and the SHA Hydrating Face Wash to review. Launched by Rohto-Mentholatum Singapore, Hada Labo is positioned as a simple, minimalist and highly effective skincare brand to attain water-radiant skin based on its “Perfect x Simple, no more no less” philosophy. Unnecessary additives such as alcohol, colorant, fragrance and mineral oil that will burden the skin are excluded. Instead, beneficial ingredients such as the Hyaluronic Acid are included. Their slogan “one drop locks up an ocean” really make their products sound very hydrating. So are they really so?
