The Hello Kitty offerings fall into two collections: the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and the more high-end Hello Kitty Kouture. The bulk of the items are in the former category: six shades of lipstick with names like Fashion Mews and Straying; six Lipglass shades,and two tinted lip conditioners; two eye shadow palettes, which each contain four shades; two shades of pigment  and two Reflects Glitter stockkeeping units — one blue, one pink; Four Glitter Eye Liners, two shades of Beauty Powder; three shades of nail polish; a black mascara and false lashes round out the color offerings.

Shades range from pinks and turquoises to lavenders and greens.

Hello Kitty Kouture is intended to be the high end of the collection. Two shades of Dazzleglass, each feature a reusable silver chain pendant with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals on black with a pink crystal bow. Sheer Mystery Powder, available in three shades, is packaged in a silver powder compact with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals with a pink crystal bow on a black background.

The Hello Kitty Colour items, a Petite Makeup Bag, and a medium Makeup Bag, 

There are also some cute items like plush doll, purse mirror, and three-brush collection, mirrored key clip, beaded bracelet, tote & soft vanity kit available……

While none of the executives would discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated that the limited edition MAC Hello Kitty collection could do upwards of $12 million in North American retail sales. That projection is slightly larger than that of the hit Barbie collection.

I am sold.

Gucci Hysteria

Recently, i had developed an obsession with bags, i mean bags that cost a fortune; after i had my Chanel’s small messenger, Balenciaga’s clutch, Mulberry’s large mabel….

The white python with tattoo heart looks cool too!

Tom Ford White Patchouli

Posted in fragrance with tags , , on November 24, 2008 by LPB

With its sensuous core of patchouli, Tom Ford White Patchouli perfectly captures the myth of a generation. Surrounded by sleek wood notes, tempered by elegant white flowers, this modern fragrance with retro-classic influences is a sophisticated interpretation of bohemian chic.

Topnotes: peony, bergamot, coriander

Middle notes: jasmine, rose absolute, ambrette seed

Basenotes: patchouli, blonde woods, and incense.

It’s a very smooth perfume with a muted incense note. It’s lightly earthy and middling dark, very chic & sensual.

It’s a clean & sophisticated perfume that makes me wanna get dirty & naughty, like the innocent looking pina colada .

I am gonna wear this during my night shift.

Lipstick Queen – Sinners

Posted in makeup with tags , , , on November 22, 2008 by LPB

Take a walk on the wild side – indulge yourself with these highly pigmented, intensly opaque lipsticks. 90% pigment, no shimmer or frosting. It is positively naughty to get lipstick this opaque, rich and creamy with a matte yet silky finish – Poppy King

Well, King’s lipsticks are the queens of all lipstick, I am head over heels on the sinners. These gorgeously opaque, ultimately matte shades instantly dress up my lips and make me feel like a millionaires.

Smooth application, without overwhelming fragrance, elegant packaging……

Possibly the best lipstick ever made.

I am a sinner in natural & nude.

EL sumptuous mascara (update)

I had used this mascara for about 2 weeks and now the so-called advance mousse like formulation for smooth,clump free application seems to be reverting to an ordinary, clump prone mess – leaving my lashes dry & brittle.

My EL double wear mascara gives me a far more superior finish than this, even it’s 3 months old.

MAC Ungaro collection

Posted in makeup with tags , , on November 21, 2008 by LPB

I like the clean, innocent, fresh flush look when i use flower mist dew beauty powder as a blusher; it’s an unbelievably natural pale pink that perks up my complexion.

I am rather disappointed by  the fresh morning (muted pastel pink) cream colour base – it’s rather greasy, slides, creases and gathers in pores/line; even comes with a warning not to be used around your eyes! I think this is only good for “pale” out my lips when i want a nude, toned down beige look.

This purple & silver Balenciaga clutch bag is my current favorite. The eyeball keychain is by Luella.
