Suqqu Stain Lip Lacquer

In the spring of 2019, along with Designing Color Eyes 12 幻光茜 (Genkouakane) Suqqu also released a limited edition line of Stain Lip Lacquer with five colors, which I summarily ignored. Then came the summer and I spotted them on sale alongside Matte Lip Crayon 102 宙紅 (Sorabeni) and picked up 101 輝虹 (Kiniji) Hologram Snow and 104 燈緋 (Touhi) Spicy Red out of sheer curiosity...

Suqqu Matte Lip Crayon

I had a real back-n-forth moment with Suqqu Matte Lip Crayons. There were three colors that were released as part of the UK Christmas 2018 Interstellar Collection. Bellyhead told me they were quite pleasant and while I believed her, I was also intimidated with both the "matte" in their name and the level of pigmentation I'd seen from many a blog swatches.

In the end, I went with just one Designing Color Eyes palette 123 晄織 (Hikariori) Cosmos Dust(?). It wasn't until I spotted the crayons on sale the summer of 2019 that I decided to try one color: 102 宙紅 (Sorabeni).

Thann Aromatic Wood Hand Lotion

Thann Aromatic Wood Rice Bran Oil Soap Bar had left such an impression on me that this past February, I picked up a 250mL/8.45fl. oz. bottle of Aromatic Wood Hand Lotion as a Valentine's present for hubby to use in his home office.

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream aka YuSkin A Family Medical Cream Part II

Just realized I haven't been fair in posting about Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream aka YuSkin A Family Medical Cream. With both of my pregnancies, I've gone through several tubes and few refill cartridges of this stuff already.

HABA Revitalizing Moisture Serum

Half way through this 30mL pump bottle of HABA Revitalizing Moisture Serum so here's a quick post for it. The weather got warmer and I had to give Cle de Peau Beaute Intensive Fortifying Emulsion a break because it was becoming too rich. I'll just have to look forward to using CdP again when it gets cold and dry.

Addiction Lipstick Sheer Part III

This Addiction Lipstick Sheer 013 Vintage Rose was part of the Carmen Rose collection released in the spring of 2019. It was also the last addition of the original lineup of Sheers before a brand new lineup of 15 colors was introduced later that fall for Addiction's 10th anniversary.

Addiction the Eye Shadow Part IV

Starting with the Empress Orchid collection in the fall of 2018, Addiction went on to release two more collections in 2019 that caught my eyes: Fake Romance in the spring, from which I picked up three Eye Shadow singles, 134 Blood Moon (P), 136 Black Rose (P), and 139 Soprano (S), and Carmen Rose in the summer, from which I got 144 Vintage Rose (P), 147 Roma Bronze (P), and 151 Spanish Lullaby (P).

Addiction Compact Addiction Chinoiserie

In the fall of 2018, Addiction released a large collection named Empress Orchid. Among the collection were six(!) nona eye shadow compacts with inspiration drawn from the film The Last Emperor, Compact Addiction Chinoiserie: 001 Last Emperor, 002 Eastern Jewel, 003 Rain, 004 China Girl, 005 Shanghai Breakfast, and 006 Trust Me. Each palette was said to have existing colors from the current lineup of 99, palette-only limited editions, and re-issues from previously discontinued colors.

Out of the six though, I was drawn only to two: 002 Eastern Jewel and 005 Shanghai Breakfast. Meanwhile, 001 Last Emperor has unique colors that I would never wear, 003 Rain is too pastel which doesn't work well on my yellow-saturated skin tone, 004 China Girl is pretty but is dominated with similar-looking pinks and grays, and 006 Trust Me is plain yawn-inducing.

Even 005 Shanghai Breakfast has only 3 unique colors, the pale pink, bright pink, and gold. The other 6 are way too close, all in the mauve-bordeaux-burgundy-wine-purple family. So I ended up with just 002 Eastern Jewel, because all the colors in this palette look differently enough.

Coffret D'Or Skin Synchro Rouge

Last spring, Coffret D'Or released a new line of lipsticks called Skin Synchro Rouge. In addition to a lineup of colors, there were also two toppers, PT-01, a platinum color-changer that will cool the colors down, and a GD-01, a gold color-changer that will warm the colors up. I thought the toppers were total BS and skipped both, and went straight for the colors that caught my eyes: OR-119, RD-228, WN-76, and EX-01.
