- Paul & Joe Pressed Powder
this particular one is limited edition for Fall/Winter 2007. it's the most amazing powder I've ever used~~~ sooo shimmery! I got a new Chanel one recently too that's similar to this quality but it turned out that it's nooo where near shimmery as this!
- BADgal smoldering black eye pencil by Benefit Cosmetics
I did not do my ridiculously made up eyes in the other picture using this product tho~ hah~ but this is pretty good to use... it glides on easily~
- BADgal brightening blue mascara by Benefit Cosmetics
I used to have this blue mascara from a Japanese brand and I loved it to death~ but they changed the brush design so I can't find a blue mascara I like anymore... until this came along... just newly released in late 2007!
- Georgia "peaches and cream" Powder by Benefit Cosmetics
the powder gives a healthy orange glow, and even tho I usually go for pinkish powder / blush, this is still one of my fave products! cuz I love the packaging! giant peach on cover~ haha ^O^ plus, it has this delicate peach scent~
- Lash Queen Mascara "Feline Blacks" by Helena Rubinstein [limited edition]
looove the leopard print packaging!!! just having this makes me happy~ sooo cute! haha
- Yves Saint Laurent Lip Twins
the cylinder conceals two complementary shades of lipstick (satin and sheer) along with a mirror... just twist the thing to reveal the particular side you're looking for~
- Yves Saint Laurent Touché Blush
I bought this powder blush for its innovative design~ the puff is attached directly to the thingy along with a mirror at the top cover~ I used to like this, but now I don't really like it anymore... still prefer the traditional way of applying blush with a brush~
- Coco Mademoiselle Solid Perfume
by Chanel [limited edition]
I love solid perfumes cuz they're elegant, discreet, and perfectly portable~ combine that with Chanel's *gorgeous* gold compact (which is quite weighty but that shows just how luxurious this feels) and I'm sold!
- agnès b. [voyage] cosmetics pouch
- Peach Lip Cream from Japan
friend gave me this way back in late 2006 along with the hand cream shaped exactly the same way just slightly bigger~ isn't it absolutely adorable? ^O^ I freaking love this thing!!! it has peach smell, of course! oh and the company also makes apple ones and orange ones~
- it comes in this special white leather pouch and the inside is all golden... so sleek! I love the whole packaging~
- pull this out and it's a brush!
love the whole design~ YSL has creative packaging for some of its cosmetics!
- same powder thing... just wanted to photo the case cover~
Paul & Joe products, both cosmetics and skincare, all have this bouquet image along with the refreshing scent of orange flower water~~~ kinda like aromatherapy and it's so soothing when applying the products ^O^
- Star Gold
- Stardust (silver)
- Starshine (peachy orange)
- Aster Pink
- Aster Purple
- BEAUTÉ de KOSÉ Eye Fantasist cream eye shadow [limited edition]
the "Star Twinkle" collection all comes with this star charm~ sooo cute I just had to get it, haha! the actual product is super shimmery, and it's best to apply on top of a same-colour eye shadow or else the colour may be kinda weak~

What's in My Makeup Bag?
I got a new cosmetics pouch in early December 2007~
I didn't realize I'd already used my previous pouch for like 6 years! O_O then I noticed the other day how it's all broken at the sides... so I had to look for a new one. I actually was a bit hesitant in getting this one at first cuz I don't really like polka dots.
but then after searching couple rounds, I still like the whole design of this one the best! cuz there are additional inner pockets (sooo few cosmetics bags come with that but it's the one thing I look for) plus, the zipper opens all the way and you can open the whole bag up wider, which means it's easier to get things~
it's water-resistant too and quite a big pouch! I was also looking at this Betsey Johnson one (with leopard print and thunder, haha) but it's smaller and yet cost more! so I finally got this... factoring in additional year-end discounts and it's slightly cheaper than usual ^O^
so I've been using this for a month now and I absolutely LOVE it!!! it makes me that much happier everyday when carrying this around~ sooo cute~~~
oh and I usually only carry the pressed powder compact and blusher with me... plus the solid perfume and lip gloss on occassions~ all the other things, I'll leave at home cuz I'd complete my makeup before I go out anywayz so there's really no need to carry tons of stuff everywhere with me!
