Thank My Lucky Stars!


Just got back from my Valentine's day dinner and, before I start my "war paint" removing ritual, here are some looks I wore last week using my beloved, Bonne Etoile.



The weather in Tokyo has been painfully cold. We had heavy snow last Saturday, and it's snowing again today.

Took this picture months ago. Finally able to post and delete it from my 'products purchased folder'. 

I'm not into star patterns, but they did make the palettes in the Mystic Metallics Collection more enticing.

    You're making me regret not getting that palette. It's lovely on you.

    1. Gappy V-day Toby! I LOVE this palette. I love my greens, so I had to have it :) I'm been meaning to ask you, so you have a blog?

    2. I do not! I've been thinking about it, but my photo-taking abilities are sadly lacking... and by sadly lacking, I mean "OH SHOOT I just got food on my lens again... nobody will see that splotch, right?" ;) & I can't take colour-accurate, non-blurry photos of makeup to save my life. I really don't know how you do it!

      Plus, I'm super shy on the internet, so there's that.

    3. Go for it, it would be great to see your world of beauty products. Also a blog can be a way over overcoming that shyness ;)

    4. Maybe! I'll think about it. How DO you take swatch photos, by the way? :)

    5. I put my camera on a tripod. I don't use any primers on my arm (that way to see how the product looks on the skin). I use these sponge tip applicators from my local dollar store, and apply with patience. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not, but I wax my arms (I don't do that for the blog though, I just like it). Hope This info didn't disappoint :)

    6. Definitely not a disappointment. Thanks for the detailed explanation! :)

    7. You're welcome Toby, let me know if you need anything else. Btw, I still love Pokemon X, and I'm going to purchase Y :P

    8. Hah, awesome! If you're purchasing Y because you want version-exclusives, I can probably get my hands on them for you. ;)

      Delete
    9. Yeah, I want to get the Y exclusives. But, I also want to send over my Pokemon from X and level them up :D
