Curling up with a beauty Mag


Here are two of my favorite Japanese beauty reads. Both magazines keep me updated (and anticipating) on all my favorite brands upcoming releases.

By the way, ADDICTION, Laduree, THREE, Suqqu, Luna sol, Paul & Joe, and Cosme Decorte's Spring collections are all on my wish list!! And overseas, Chanel, Dior, Guerlain, and Nars.

This month's issue of Voce came with this cute Guerlain folder. 

Also included in Voce, was this male eye candy calendar.

I'm attending a wedding tomorrow, so I'll try to post my look either before or after (depending on how much time I have). Hope you're all enjoying your last minute Holiday shopping (if any). 

What are your favorite beauty magazines? 

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  1. Hey, can you already read & understand everything that's written, or it is more about the pics?
    OMG, I'm sooooo glad I just had to learn German & not Japanese. Learning to read, write & speak that language must be absolutely daunting!
    Go Mrs Gorgeous!!

    1. I can understand some of what's written, but not everthing, and it's always about the lovely makeup eye candy :P I just stare at the images and fantasize about all the lovely looks I can create.

      Japanese it the most difficult language I've had to learn. I speak Spanish fluently and used to be pretty fluent in Turkish, but I'm forgetting it :(

    1. Thank you Margaret!!!

      In regards to Lunasol, the eyeshadow palettes in 01 Blue Green Collection, 03 Orange Collection, and 04 Khaki Beige Collection have caught my attention... actually the all have :P

      The three blushers in 01 Light Pink, 02 Light Coral, and
      03 Soft Beige Red.

      I'll have to play with the lipsticks to decide which ones(if any) to get. The lipstick shades look simialr in the photo.

      Also, the nail lacquer in EX09 Vivid Blue Green looks gorgeous!

      I can understand you perfectly, and I hope you'll stop by more often ;)

      Beauty Addicts unite!

    1. Hi Chris!

      Happy Holidays as well :)

      Okay, I recommend everything from addiction. Honestly, you can't go wrong. Lunasol's eye shadows are great. Suqqu's eye shadow palettes offer a beautiful subtle look, as well as their blushers.

      Hope that helped :D
