After several years of enduring my physical abuse (I.e., numerous droppings), Christine (aka, my laptop) is hanging on to dear life by promises, pleas, and prayers. Any moment now, Christine is going to spontaneously combust and die. Now, I'm in a pickle, because I need to buy a new laptop, but I have to buy it in the states ( specifically because I don't want a Japanese keyboard. Man, I dread what the shipping rates will be).
Many of last year's Holiday collection color schemes felt either "Fallish" or "Springy" to me. Hence, I thought Shu Uemura x Maison Kitsune's entire collection would be perfect for the beautiful sunny, yet still chilly (today it's raining), beginnings of Spring.
I'm not sure about the rest of the world, but in Japan, the Beauty Remix Smokey Eye & Cheek Palettes were sold in a set (9,180 yen) that included a cute bag, a Lacquer Sparkle from the collection, and a mini Ultime8 Supreme Beauty Cleaning Oil.
I adore the lining of the bag. A beautiful colored blue fabric, with a cute mixture of western and eastern gold printed images.
I did let out an "AWWWW" when I saw this lone fella printed on the back bottom right corner of the bag.
I'm always thankful when palettes come with generous sized mirrors.
The Indigo Beauty Remix Smokey Eye & Cheek Palette houses four semi-metallic-pearled shadows, three translucent, glittery shadows, and a blush.
