Shu Uemura Love!

I have a habit of buying make-up products by brand. I think this is the best way to find out which of the ones you have tried are among the best ones.  So here's a review of one of my make-up loves - Shu Uemura.

Mika Ninagawa for Shu Uemura Make-up brushes
From Shu Uemura's first collaboration with acclaimed photographer Mika Ninagawa, the limited-edition brush case includes a special set of four Shu Uemura brushes, handmade in Japan by professional artisans for optimal make-up application for the face, cheek, eye and lip. I am a firm believer in investing in good quality make-up brushes, they apply make-up better and they last longer than the synthetic varieties.

Cabaret Collection by Kenneth Cobonpue

Cabaret is a new seating collection from world-renowned Filipino industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue, which features a distinct contemporary woven design, with chunky knots and loops that wrap around the back and sides of the seat.

The Cabaret collection includes a sofa and armchair design with high back and side panels and an easy chair with lower sides which samples Cobonpue’s trademark design of twisting and weaving fabrics,an aesthetic also seen in his previous Dragnet and Rapunzel collections.

Cabaret can be used both for indoor or outdoor settings, with a choice of wool blend fabric for indoor use (in charcoal, plum or sand colors) or an acrylic fabric for outdoor use (yellow, silver or pale grey color options).
