As we ease in to mid-November, the end of the year looms close — so do the upcoming year-end holidays. It will seem like time is running extra slowly in November, and we absolutely cannot wait for the holidays to arrive. Thankfully, we have this week’s edition of The Cheat Sheet to help you get through the motion. From new menu additions to try to outfit planning for your winter holiday, read on for all the new stuff that came up on Lifestyle Asia KL this week.

Food

A new edition of In Good Taste is out, so take your pick of these brand new additions to three places. There’s lobster laksa in Pince & Pints, a very artistic afternoon tea set at Element Kuala Lumpur, and Spanish-style vermicelli paella at Birch.

Beauty 

Cheat Sheet

Rihanna announces a new Fenty Beauty product. Cue: everyone losing their mind. The Stunna liquid lipstick is set to hit Sephora only later this month, so while waiting for it, we line up 10 other liquid lipsticks to tide you over. After all, one can never have too many red liquid lipsticks.

Style

Cheat Sheet
Style influencer extraordinaire Aimee Song is looking extra fly in her faux fur jacket.

Heading on a winter holiday at the end of the year? Be sure to look fly while keeping warm with a faux fur jacket.

We round up 10 style influencers around the world that do a pretty good job at pulling off faux fur jackets, for your style inspiration.
