  • Lip Gloss Test

    Lip Gloss Test

    Lip glosses are all the rage this season. emmagem went out to test two highly recognizable brands in town. emmagem’s choice of this month, Kate’s liquid rouge from Japan  and Stila’s It Gloss.


    Designers and makeup artist around the world has been raving and promoting lip glosses the last couple of years ever since the nude, au natural look made it’s presence in make up. Previously used as a top coat over lipstick, these days glosses stand alone in full glory against a girl’s lips making them more luscious and letting the lips make a statement by themselves. The beauty about glosses or liquid rouge is that it is easy to use, doesn’t look too heavily put on and gives a youthful fuller impression of the lips. The word kissable instinctively comes to mind.

  • The Importance of Power Dressing

    The Importance of Power Dressing

    It has been ingrained in me from a very young age, to always look nice and know the quality of fabric and cutting of your outfit.That’s the advantage when your mum is a part time seamstress and is always “designing” clothes for you from left over scrap cloth. So I have been dabbling in re-designing any piece of dress or pants that I don’t like and modifying them into something I think I would like to wear.

    Forward to 21st century and some thirty years later, I am still a stickler for well cut clothes and good fabrication, although a burgeoning waistline due to a slower metabolic rate has made it more challenging of late, sigh. Nonetheless, it should not be a surprise to anyone by now if I tell you why I am an absolute believer in the power of dressing! And I don’t mean wearing Guccis suits or Armani suits as power dressing, price is not the issue here, good taste is. The fact that you wear clothes that define your personality and is well suited to your body is important because the way you carry these clothes will bespeak of your self confidence and give you a certain stature whatever your position may be in a corporation.
