Best scent ever.
An edited compilation of things I’ve been obsessing over lately — perfume, patti smith, black lipgloss (naturally), concealer palettes, and lingerie. Details on all of this and why I like it over at my fashion blog. I’m also giving away a $50 Amazon Giftcard in the post over there, if you were thinking of hauling anything.
BLACK COMME des GARÇONS
100ml Eau de Toilette
2013 marks the regeneration of the BLACK COMME des GARÇONS concept through the launch of BLACK COMME des GARÇONS Eau de Toilette, an emergency, guerrilla like, spiced-up new scent.
Head: Black pepper from Madagascar and incense from Somalia
Heart: Leather, liquorice, birtch tar and pepper wood
Base: Cedarwood and vetiver
This is literally everything I want in a fragrance. I wanted to buy it today but they don’t have it in stock at Jeffrey’s yet. :(
Shop the post:
IMATS LA was only last month and I haven’t really used all of the products I purchased there yet but already I’m yearning for some more.. it’s a sickness. To be fair, I have wanted the Balenciaga perfume for a million years and I am certainly going to be purchasing it next month. I am a big fan of Dr. Jart+ products and this new bb cream is calling my name — though from reviews I’ve seen it looks like it’ll be too dark for me. Still, I’m curious. I am also getting (gasp) bored of BB cream so want to try out some foundations, so the Koh Gen Do and YSL ones will be coming home with me soon.. in sample form (what am I, made of money? full sized bottles? HA).
JINsoo is a kind of cult fashion-circle nail line all the beauty editors I chat with talk about — keep an eye out for it and once you see it in Sephora definitely check it out. I need a good basecoat, this might be the one. As for Eyeko — it’s all about the endless pursuit for the perfect mascara, you know? And face oils.. you can never have enough face oils. Lip tar? When do I not want lip tar?
My list is so predictable. Have you tried any of these products? Should I splurge or skip? What are you lemming for, friends?
Following Arabelle’s post about what she’s looking forward to for fall when it comes to products, here are a couple products that I want to try and why!
1. Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Gilded Wine (RS612) ($25): For the most part this year I have been controlling my lip product purchases because I surpassed Arabelle’s lip product collection and I have no idea how that happened. However, one of the samples that she gave me last year was one of the Perfect Rouge lipsticks, and I absolutely fell in love with the formula (completely underrated in my opinion, it’s a great formula), so I want to pick another one up. In addition, with my multitude of lipsticks, I’m missing deep purple colors which complement my skintone so it’s like killing two birds with one stone? Yeah? Justification is great? haha
2. Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Empress ($28): …I was totally going to list Raven as the color I wanted to buy but again Arabelle and I share the same brain AND SHE TOTALLY PICKED THAT ONE. :C I need deeper lip products okay I own a lot of the lighter end of things. The finish on these look really pretty as well and I want to compare it to my YSL Glossy Stain.
3. Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint (~$6): I have rediscovered my love of lip tints since I found a mini Benetint in my collection a couple weeks ago. I don’t particularly want to spend the money for a full-size Benetint so I want to try this Etude House one. And the packaging is adorable!
Chi-Chi asked me what I wanted in the high-end price range since she likes to spoil me so I whipped up this list of things I’ve been lemming for. Click below the cut for details, prices, and why I’m obsessed. Counter-clockwise from the top right.
If you didn’t know, I’m going to be in Taiwan for the rest of the summer — 2 months?! — which means ASIAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS 4EVA AND EVA. Can’t wait to haul all these products at SASA in person! And the Skinfood store, and being able to play with all the Majolica Majorca products in person… drool.
I’m making a pit stop in Tokyo too so hopefully I can pick up some products there, too. I’m bringing an extra bag just to haul back my beauty products.
are you guys excited for sephora’s F&F sale soon? i am. i am already planning on what to return so i have more to spend….lol. this is what im thinking about. granted, sugarpill and zoya aren’t sold at sephora, so they’ll have to be separate hauls, and i don’t think ill buy the polishes anyway, but they’re nice to drool over. :3
