One of my most prized collections is that of my Jill Stuart cosmetics particularly my Jill Stuart Eye Shadow Palettes.
You’ll see why after the jump!
Jill Stuart Cosmetics have that certain beautiful packaging that makes us forget most of the makeup world and just stare in awe (and possibly drool while doing so) and excitement at the beauty that makes up this makeup. Much of the packaging is unique to anything I’ve purchased before and very, very beautiful. I’m a fan particularly of the eye shadow palettes whith house soft shimmering shades of color. I started out my collection with a single palette and soon after hauled five more. Since that time I ended up with near 20 palettes but only nine now make up my collection as various ones were handed over to friends who fell as in love with them as I did.
Although expensive and at times repetitious the brand holds a very special place in my heart. Hope you enjoyed my stash spotlight of Jill Stuart Shadow Palettes!
I can’t look at Banila Co lately without a new palette popping before my eyes. Obviously these are selling really well since Banila Co releases one every few months. The new Banila Co Collection, S Night Standing includes a brand new palette along with several other very interest pieces.
Jump ahead for a peek!
S Night Standing seems a little bit of a privy to Fall but it could also be a chic Summer Collection. The palette is a range of blues, pinks, and a few odd shades. It’s not one of the best palettes I’ve seen from Banila Co from the colors to the packaging but I think collector’s and fans alike will probably want to haul it regardless.
Here’s some of the release, also not pictured, two new nail shades are being released with these items!
Banila Co S Night Standing Eye Palette 22,000KRW
Banila Co Kiss Collector Color Fix Lipstick (S Night Standing packaging) 12,000KRW Each
Banila Co S Night Standing Marbleized Eye Shadow 12,000KRM Each
It’s quite a nice selection for collectors of Banila Co but nothing catches my interest or shouts out at me as a must have! Can probably safely skip it!
How about you?
Tell the Muse!
It’s not surprising that the Majolica Majorca Fall Collection 2009 is extremely tiny and slightly disappointing. This isn’t too shocking considering the larger Summer release of eight brand new palettes.
Jump ahead for more details!
I’m loving the imagery for Fall ’09 with it’s slight BDSM twist, quite nice. A little goth, a little BDSM, oh my MJ have you gone all dark on me again? As I mentioned above it doesn’t really shock me that the release is extra tiny since Majolica Majorca Summer Collection was quite huge. I find it fun that Summer was “innocent” and Fall is a little bit evil. I see a trend developing here as Urban Decay has a little bit of innocence going on and a little bit of evil too with it’s new lippie shades.
The collection releases July 21st in Japan and will include the following items:
Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner in 7 Shades hold little appeal for me. I have one of the old versions and it’s utter crap (either that or I suck at liquid liner application). The promo image alone makes me want to purchase one to attempt an exotic look but I won’t bother, meh!
Majolica Majorca Cheek Customize in a new shade? Whoa been ages since we seen any new colors. This appears more of a highlighter but we’ll have wait and see! Again, another item I can safely skip, kinda boring.
Majolica Majorca Honey Pump Gloss Neo is a creamy tinted version of the regular Honey Plump Gloss. Honey Plump Gloss is decent enough but I’m not going to bother with this either, just kinda ho-hum. I’m such a killjoy aren’t I? Sorry, just not feeling the excitement here.
Majorca Majolica Honey Pump Lip Essence seems a special release of some kind of Honey Plump and yes you guessed it, boringggggg!
A majority of the items are pretty much releases that have already been done before just with little differences here and there. I suspect Winter/Holiday 2009 will be small but perhaps more appealing (one can hope).
This is somewhat good news as I can use the money I was saving for Fall ’09 and spend it on the Summer palettes I have yet to haul!
What do you think?
Majolica Majorca Fall Collection 2009 Yay or Nay?
Me, I’m saying nay. They could have done slightly better.
Great news for you today! British born beauty brand, Illamasqua is making it’s way across the pond shortly!
Jump ahead for the beauty news!
Every since Illamasqua hit the beauty blog airwaves it’s since turned into the new must have makeup brand. Sadly, up until now, it’s been exclusive to British shores. But lem no more! Sephora’s website will begin carrying the entire Illamasqua Collection starting on July 21st and the new Times Square Store will have it in stock starting July 30th!
Happy, happy, joy joy!
Anyone a fan?
I dunno why but the Singaporean population flocks to Vox to blog. What’s this mean? It basically means I’m probably lurking around Vox reading gorgeous Singaporean chick blogs. They always have such great finds on there. It’s terribly addicting.
My latest find?
SilkyGirl BB Cream! ‘ello awesome! Omg!
Learn more after the jump!
Although SilkyGirl isn’t a Singaporean brand it is sold in ‘pore. It actually originates in Malaysia and basically is this cheapy, cheesy drugstore brand with a pretty large cult following. Translated: cheap but good quality.
When I recently seen a blogger from ‘pore waxing the good word about a new release from SilkyGirl I was all over it. SilkyGirl BB Cream looks dreamy! It’s about $6-$8 bucks in USD so it’s way cheap. It comes in two shades, has an SPF 25, and looks like it could be super nice. I’m a picky person when it comes to BB’s but I’m all about the cheap factor.
My little sis, plue, is on the case to snag me one. Be on the look out for a review upcoming shortly.
