With the aid of this holy omnibus of cosmetic releases for Spring/Summer, I'm been making my little (massive) list of Spring beauty wants. Here's my two cents on the collections.

I want everything! However, everything is permanent, so it's not on the top of my Spring purchase list...must prioritize ;)

I love Anna Sui and that Rose Cheek Color in 601 is calling my name. Although I like Aube, I'm passing on what their offering...maybe.

That bareMinerals blush look promising, the Benefique lipsticks are lovely, and unfortunately, Bobbi Brown isn't inspiring me.

Chanel, I want all of you! I love the color scheme of this collection.

As much as I love Chicca, the sales assistants at Isetan Shinjuku leave a lot to be desired! They're really giving the RMK counter at Mitsukoshi Ginza a run for their money on worst customer service! Not sure I want to give them my hard earned yen! Cle de Peau, I'll have to play with you at the counter.

I love Clarins, and both of those blushes have me foaming at the mouth...must have! Passing on Clinique.

Skipping right past Coffret D'Or.

I really like what Cosme Decorte AQ MW has to offer this spring, especially the eyeshadow quads in 027 & 028, and the lipsticks in OR272 and RD434.

Dior is one of my favorite brands, but I have to rein myself in and narrow down my wants. Both blushes (of course), the 234 quint, the mono shadows look inviting, and I need to swatch the lipsticks.

Turning a blind eye on Elegance and Esprique.

Estee Lauder, I have to see you in person. Givenchy, you're one of my muses, and I want everything! I already played with the entire collection at the counter and it is AMAZING!

Still on the fence with Armani, and the only thing I want from my beloved Guerlain is the eye shadow duo and quad.

Helena Rubinstein, you know I'm a fan and those lipsticks are calling my name. May pass on Jill Stuart.

Ipsa and Lancome haven't drawn me in.

Besides the new shiny items from Spring, I see Laura Mercier Japan is re-releasing the eyeshadow palette and eyeliner (which I already own) from 2013's Arabesque collection. I'm 50/50 on the Laduree palettes, but the cream blushes and lip crayons are fantastic!

I'm sorry Lunasol, but it's a no this season. Last Springs quads are still sitting pretty in their boxes untouched. I will be featuring them once Spring rolls around.

I already Purchased this collection when it released in the states, my bf just hasn't mailed it out to me yet.

Maquillage is tempting me with that eyeshadow palette in BL231, and it's a big shimmy shake past Mary Quant.

Yes to all things Nars, not over the moon for Paul and Joe this season, and undecided about RMK at the moment. 

Putting the blinders on for Shiseido, but loving Sonia Rykiel, Especially the Glossy Eyes and the nail polish in 03.

Can I get an amen and a yes please for Suqqu and THREE!

Tom Ford Beauty Japan has re-released 2012's Fall collection for Spring (with the exception of the lip & cheek stain in tainted love and the eye creme color in plum absolute). Perfectly fine with me as I own the collection and will be featuring looks from it this Spring.

I want both of the polishes from YSL Spring!

What collections are on your Spring Wishlist?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. Suqqu quads and THREE lipsticks! I'm curious about their foundations but I have no idea which one is a match since it's really hard to find swatch line up of them with a colour reference to something more common. Do you know if they have a colour similar to OC10 for Maquillage or Canmake 01 shades?

    1. I want all things Suqqu and THREE! To date, I've tired both Frame Fix Cream & Liquid Foundation N, and my normal to dry skin loved the Cream foundation the most. What's your skin type? Next time I'm at the counter, I'll try to swatch the foundations for you.

    2. I'm interested in seeing THREE brand foundation swatches, they are really hard to find :(
      I have normal to dry skin as well.

    3. Okay, If I can drag Aki to Mitsukoshi this week, I'll do some counter swatches for you.

    4. Haven't made my way to the counter yet, but working on it.

  2. I hate how most of these brands aren't avail outside of Japan! Those Paul & joe blushers are seriously calling my name, and Coffret d'Or as well... frilly isn't usually my style, but these look so spring-y! That YSL Rosy Blushilighter is divine, my fav purchase this season!

    1. I wish these brands were available internationally, there's definitely a demand for it. That YSL Spring blush as eluded me so far, can't find it anywhere!

  3. Thanks for posting, fun to look at! I think one thing that was pretty interesting in Bobbi Brown is the Kohl eyeliners. Favorite thing from Bobbi Brown right now.

    1. You're welcome Anonymous! I am interested in Bobbi Brown's Brightening Finish Powder in 04 Bronze Glow. I need to try some of those Kohl Eyeliners :)

  4. OMG!!! I super enjoyed looking at these products. There are lots of products that caught my attention. Gotta grab one of these.

    1. These booklets make everything look so tantalizing. I want one of everything, but I must resist!
