You seriously didn’t think I forgot about Chinese New Year did you!?
I wanted to wish all my readers in China (My stats say there are a ton of you!) a very Happy, Healthy Lunar New Year! And of course those of you stateside I wish you the same!
PS Don’t mind the pig I was loving this particular image but they didn’t seem to have a rat about hehe!
I need to relax. What better way to relax then to blog?
Japanese Spring Collection week continues with the eagerly anticipated X Disney Collection! I blogged about this Collection not so long ago in a prior post (Click for details!) and soon after I knew I had to have the entire set!
How freaking cute is the packaging on this? My god I’m in love!
The collection consists of a lip treatment, handcream, and face powders.
My favorite of the collection are the two face powders! The packaging is like Guerlain’s Meteorites but a tiny bit smaller in size. I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that there isn’t a whole lot of powder beads inside but the packaging, quality, and pigment of the product make up for it!
The powders come in two shades one of which is a beautiful pink! The packaging on the pink shade features Flower, the lovable skunk from Bambi! Awwww! These come with a cute powder puff with ribbon which really makes me love it even more for the girlish Victorian factor! I can’t help myself I love cute cosmetics! Don’t you!?
The pink is a beautiful shade and can be worn alone if you so desire or used as a highlighter. The color is pigmented enough that you can easily get away with using it as a blush! I guess the puff isn’t a conventional way of applying but it works well enough for dotting onto your cheeks! I used some of this last night but decided to use my #187 to pick up the color! It worked a treat because the #187 didn’t become saturated with color it just picked up enough to highlight my chubby cheeks hehe!
The peach color features Bambi on the box! Oh my god so cute! I wanna lick the box! My favorite is Flower but I love Bambi just as much! The peach does remind me of the Jill Stuart Blush in 05 Orange Blush (Click here to see the color) and I found it a bit chalky in comparison to the silky texture of the pink. However, it needs to be tested a bit more prior to making my final decision! Like the pink it’s nicely pigmented to use as a blush or a highlighter! Yet again a disappointing amount of product but hey we got the cute packaging right? Right!
The other two items in the set were a handcream and a lip treatment. The handcream is a lovely cooling, moisturizing orange scented cream for your hands. Nothing really special here but the packaging does include Lady from Lady and the Tramp!
The lip treatment is quite yummie tasting but don’t be fooled into thinking it’ll be good for use with lipstick or as a glossy finish for your lips. This is a lip treatment so it’s good to moisturize but doesn’t leave your lips glossy or shiny! It’s most definately not good for use over lipsticks either. The packaging features sweet Marie from The AristoCats! Awwwwwwwwww! I’m so in love. Did I mention that?
I can’t squeal enough about this collection! It’s so cute!
Overall, a job well done for Paul & Joe! A beautiful selection of very cute items!
Tell the Muse!
The Muse’s mate Betsy has shared some wonderful images of her Spring Haul again with the Muse!
You can see the previous palettes that Betsy has purchased for Spring by clicking here!
I’m totally lemming the new Lunasol palettes after seeing the pictures she sent me so gorgeous! The Magie Deco are so pricey but obviously worth the bucks as look at how beautiful these are!

I wanted to share this with you guys because I was so deeply touched by it. Izar, one of my readers, has awarded with a “You Make My Day Award” for her blog!
I just visited her blog for the first time today and it’s wonderful! One of the first things that caught my eye was Izar’s Deviant page! Izar is obviously a very talented, gifted artist! And of course the fact that she blogs about my favorite topic, cosmetics, means she’ll be making her way onto my daily visit list!
Izar decided to pass the award on to me!
About the “You Make MY Day Award”:
“Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland…”
The general idea that I inspire anyone deeply touches me plus make them happy? That makes me happy too
Thank you Izar! I’m honored to be included in your post and awarded!
