Yup, this is a finger pointing haul. One of those You Tube made me do it kind of thing....
First person to be pointed at is Kas (cocomotion).
We have the L'Occitane Honey & Lemon EDT (LE shimmering version, now on sale $67 for 100ml). I was first introduced to this lovely scent when she gave me a generous sample of it in a vial where I transfer/ refill it, so I can pop it in my bag for touch ups, etc. Ever since I got that, I would enter the L'Occitane store whenever I pass by it, and spritzed it on myself (and whoever happens to be with me), but I don't know why, I never ever picked it up.... maybe is the price? Cos it is after all, and EDT, and I very much prefer Eau De Parfum. Regardless, since this is LE, and when it sells out, I wouldn't be able to buy it even if I wanted to by then... so I caved in and bought it.
And the next person to be pointed at, if you have been reading my blog long enough, would know I am always suckered by the same few people whom I watch on You Tube. (To refresh your memory, the usual suspects are the Pixiwoo girls, Lollipop26, Gossmakeupartist, The Current Custom...) And so I bought this YSL lipstick which The Current Custom (her name is Lorraine) have been raving about ever since she went redhead. Yup, it is the YSL Rouge Pur in 148 - Tea Rose. $39 at DFS. Before that, when she was blonde, I was suckered into buying the YSL RV in No7 (Lingerie Pink) and RV No19 (Frivolous Pink).
And the next lipstick, well, I guess I can only point the finger at myself. I remember swatching this color like crazy with Kas while we were at DFS a few weeks back, remember that covert swatching and paparazzi session? (Click here for that entry) And maybe to some extent, I should prolly point a finger at my YSL enabler, Yael (lissasouix), who pm me about the new YSL spring colors, and I think this is a new release in the Rouge Volupte range. It is Rouge Volupte 30 Faubourg Peach. ($42 at DFS) The pictures make the color appear darker, but in reall life it is a creamy peachy color, much like one of those creamy peach nail colors from the China Glaze or Essie spring colors.
The lip swatch I did that day of RV No 30 -- which I labelled wrongly in the picture below.. but in case you are interested, the Rouge Pur No 144 Silky Apricot is very similar.
And the other day, I Back to Mac for a free lipstick, I got Angel.
