Fall Collections 2007

Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eyeshadow

Hmmmmmmm now here’s something I can finally get excited about this Fall! Lorac has three new baked eyeshadow that promises I’ll shine like a super star if I buy them (I don’t really need these as I already am quite a star as is! I’m joking! I’m joking! No one throw any tomatoes please!).

The three colors are Evening Star (a blue trio), Rising Star (a green trio), and Shining Star (a bronze trio). These are all limited edition and $24 each!

Bit pricey for a trio but if they are contain as much sparkle and shimmer as they promise it’ll be worth it!

They are on my wish list!

Lavshuca Color Conc Rouge Review

Lavshuca introduced several colors of it’s newest gloss, Color Conc Rogue, for it’s Fall 2007 Collection (I googled pictures of the newest collection but all I get are some weird model advertising Lavshuca who is this girl and where’s Puffy damnit!)

I purchased four of the ten colors. When I first got wind of these I was over the moon because hey I love gloss! Gloss is good. Gloss is nice. Gloss makes me (and my lips) happy! Um..ya..anyway….At the time I was seriously going to go ahead and purchase all ten of the colors because we established already I’m that kinda diseased about cosmetics icon wink

I’m glad I went with four because I have to give Color Conc Rouge a bit of a bad review! Sad sighs all around!

I’ve tried to love this, I’ve tried to even like it. I’ve used two of the four colors so far and they just don’t do anything for me! It’s sadly lacking any “wow”!

The general idea of the gloss is it’s supposed to act as a lipstick and a gloss all in one but that sadly doesn’t really work. The texture is like any gloss you might have about. It’s pretty thick, pretty slick but it doesn’t glide. The glide is non existent (if you know gloss you know what I mean). I’m trying to firgure out exactly why it has no glide, I’m not entirely sure if it’s the actual gloss or the applicator! The applicator is just a hard plastic piece with no sponge at the end so you are basically trying to apply gloss using the end of a tiny, hard piece of plastic! The gloss it self feels ok on, not tacky and not too sticky but just about right. However, it has no lasting power. Application may last you 30 minutes if you’re lucky! Again, as almost all Japanese brands, it’s unflavored! Overall it’s just sadly lacking!

On the plus side the packaging is adorable which is cause for some excitement but the actual product inside leaves much to be desired! The colors are quite gorgeous but what’s color if it doesn’t apply correctly.

Lavshuca has some hit or miss products and this is sadly a miss for me! Of course I’m happy to have these in my collection but I can only offer it an ok rating.

Save your pennies, buy something else!

Givenchy Fall Collection 2007 Prisme Again! Secret Blush Quartet

Aptly named Secret Blush because I didn’t even notice it was available for sale on Sephora.com!

This little gem is on my Wish List! I shall scour every nook and cranny of this city till I find it and make it mine!

Sometimes the lemming comes on me hard teehee!

Want it? Need it? Have to have it? Meh, I’ll pass?

Tell me icon smile My ears are open!

Shu Uemura Edo Komon Fall 2007 Collection

The Edo Komon collection is now available on Shu Uemura’s website.

Another ho-hum collection that I probably won’t bother any time with! I adore Shu but I can’t get excited about navy blue eyeshadow. Sorry Shu the wallet is remaining in the pocket this time around!

Is it me or do none of these colors work together? And by the very way the model on the left hand side is wearing a lovely cranberry color…where is that being offered? Did I miss something? And where’s the makeup video?

Is everyone out to disappoint me this Fall Season or am I total grouch?

Sigh.

Sephora Fall Catalog 2007

It’s here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sephora’s Catalog should be winging it’s way into your mailbox shortly but if you can’t wait you can hop on over to Sephora’s website and see the catalog in all it’s glory from first to last page!

Are you excited or what?

Don’t be.

Sorry don’t mean to burst your bubble there! It appears this year’s catalog blows!

This is my “I’m not excited” at all attitude. Sheesh you know the world may very well be coming to an end if I’m not squealing at the prospect of a new Sephora catalog! Best look outside your window and make sure hell hasn’t frozen over or large drops of fiery rain are falling from the skies!

Ok..so maybe I’m being dramatic but geez the catalog just stinks! I don’t see much of anything that I can remotely get my panties twisted in a bunch over aside from items I have previously mentioned in my blog!

Thanks alot Sephora it’s almost as if it’s Christmas morning minus the presents! Wasn’t it enough to disappoint me with the Summer Catalog? You had to go and ruin the Fall Catalog for me too? It’s not fair I tell you! God I’m already in a state of panic about the possibility of the Winter Catalog sucking too! That’d make an entire year of shitty catalogs! That’s wrong on so many levels!

Sigh….

I’m going to bed utterly depressed and devastated tonight!
