Blend Perfection? + Chanel Regard Perle

I actually didn't have anything planned after the ADDICTION post but after getting an awesome package today I decided to do my makeup anyway... I have a lot of stuff I've only swatched but never worn (plus I *AM* trying to use up my Bourjois foundation so...)

Today was an experiment in (mostly) foundation application!

A (Really) Dangerous ADDICTION (for my wallet)

I was introduced to ADDICTION by Ayako almost  a year ago by my dear Yumeko, but since the line is SO hard to get (and no one I know had tried it) I was hesitant to spend money just to try a new line out... thankfully this year several of the blogs I love reading picked up pieces to the brand and my interest was peaked... the tipping point was being able to order them from Fumi's Shop at a better price with shipping than Ichibankao and Mihokoshop. It also helped that my #1 Makeup Enabler had recently raved about the line :)

NARS Tainted Love + Random Depotting Project

Every year I end up making un-anticipated, unplanned spring purchases, mostly because some collections seem to be ALL OVER the blogging community and others are missed entirely (so I don't put any extra effort into hunting them)! This was the case with the new NARS Tainted Love gift set (which I've seen on a few blogs since then - but only after I purchased it).

I'm happy though, because I love this set - it is SO pink!

Spring Purchases in Action: Hello Kitty & Benefit Bamba

I (frequently) fall prey to purchasing a lot of things in a short amount of time and then promptly forgetting to use them. I'll usually remember them at some point but... that's not always a guarantee. After Sheila and Christine tagged me to do a blue look last week (I requested inspiration to break out of my rut) I first used tried-and-true products in my stash...

And then realised I had just BOUGHT a blue eyeshadow which I should use - Hello Kitty Charmmy Eyeshadow stick in Kimono.

Guerlain Spring 2011 Collection: Sur Mes Levres

I think this year's spring collections from the luxury Western marques were largely designed to hit my wallet - so many of them focused on pink! It's a good thing I passed on my usual Dior-addiction... made space in my stash (and heart) for other brands! As soon as I saw the promo pictures for Guerlain's Sur Mes Levres collection I pretty much wanted all of it - the hot fuschia background was a REALLY good seller. 

Fortunately, while I did drop a fair chunk of change on this collection I didn't actually buy everything :P
