Paul and Joe Eye Color and Lip Balm Set Holiday 2012 Makeup 1

.

It has been a few months since I purchased these items from Paul & Joe during the summer sale earlier this year, but I thought I would still share images of them with you all.

Dior Cherie Bow 002 Rose Perle Spring 2013 Makeup 1

.

Dior‘s spring 2013 Chérie Bow makeup collection has an abundance of feminine pink shades. The seasonal limited-edition star item, the Chérie Bow palette, caught my attention, and I decided to go for 002 Rose Perle, which I preferred to the more gray-toned 001 Rose Poudre.

Dior Grand Bal Holiday 2012 Makeup 1

.

I was disappointed with the lack of the limited-edition star item in Dior‘s holiday 2011 makeup collection, and I had been looking forward to seeing what Dior was going to bring out for this holiday season. Dior’s holiday 2012 Grand Bal makeup collection features warm-toned shades for the eyes and rich reds for the lips. (It is good to see new Diorific lipsticks and nail colors.) The star item is the Grand Bal palette, and I decided to get it with my Boots points.

YSL Golden Gloss 55 Arctic Blue Holiday 2012 Makeup 1

.

After YSL released Gloss Pur in 11 Icy Effect in summer 2011, I didn’t think there would be another blue-tinted lip gloss from the brand anytime soon. However, YSL’s holiday 2012 Northern Lights makeup collection, with an unusual blue color theme for the festive season, features Golden Gloss in 55 Arctic Blue. (It is called Blue Iceberg in Japan and perhaps other countries.) Yes, I had to have it.

.

Earlier, I mentioned that I saw Guerlain‘s Emilio Pucci Terracotta Gloss in 12 Porto Azzurro in person but wasn’t sure whether I wanted to buy it. A few days later, I decided to get it.

YSL Gloss Pur 11 Icy Effect Summer 2011 Makeup 1(Still available…)

.

- I was told by a Muji sales assistant that Muji UK is no longer carrying facial skincare items for the time being. This means I will not be able to continue purchasing my Muji cleansing oil (Mild Oil Cleansing) in the UK. (Muji’s EU on-line store still has a few other skincare items.) I am surprised and not surprised. Muji Japan recently expanded its skincare range (and re-packaged some existing products, including Mild Oil Cleansing (the print on the bottle is now in green, not red)) and I thought Muji UK might start carrying more skincare products. However, Muji is never known for skincare in the UK so it is not too surprising that it is now focusing on other product lines.

Today, I am featuring two regular items from the collection, Blend Color Eyeshadow in 10 Kozuecha and Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist in 01 Haruoto.

Paul and Joe Sale Winter 2011 1

.

First of all, apologies for the delay in posting about this stash update.

I have to admit that, ever since the last Paul & Joe winter sale, I had been waiting for the next one. (Paul & Joe does have items on sale during the summer sale, but the lineup is usually not as impressive, and I didn’t purchase any sale item last summer.) There were a lot of items on sale for the winter sale 2011, and, for the first time (that I can remember), holiday limited-edition items were sold at reduced prices at Paul & Joe counters right on the other side of Christmas.

Dior Garden Clutch 002 Granville Garden Spring 2012 Makeup 1

.

With the gorgeous rose motifs, Dior‘s spring 2012 makeup collection, Garden Party, is such a pretty collection. The limited-edition seasonal star item, Dior Garden Clutch, is available in two variations, 001 Milly Garden and 002 Granville Garden. The choice was easy for me. As I prefer warmer neutrals, I went for 002 Granville Garden with my Boots points.
