Jill Stuart Rouge My Dress

Back in May hubby and I were planning to spend Golden Week in Taipei. But of course the plane ticket prices were tripled, and so we scrapped that plan and took a last minute trip in mid September instead (yes, I'm extremely behind on photos still...). Anyway, while on the plane I browsed through the shopping magazine and spotted this Jill Stuart Rouge My Dress Trio Flowery Balloon Collection, a Cathay Pacific duty free exclusive.

The trio includes the Rouge My Dress lipsticks in 12 Lucky Charm, 13 Berry Tutu, and 15 Fluffy Scrunchy, all for $75 which is actually a decent price considering these lippies retail for 3,000yen a piece plus tax. I needed an excuse to try a Jill Stuart lipstick 3(or three, ha), so I picked up the set despite their names really irked me. Does Rouge My Dress mean to only wear rouge and no other articles of clothing? Or deface a dress with rouge? =.=

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

I've been using this 28.3g/1oz. sample tube of First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream to layer over Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream, because believe it or not the Caudalie cream alone wasn't enough to keep my dry-combo skin from flaking. This is only a temporary arrangement until I'm through with the Caudalie tube, so I'll update again if the FAB cream fails then too (hope not!).

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum

Just one week after moving home, my nose, cheeks, and chin all started flaking :( So what did I do but dig out this little 7.5mL/0.25fl. oz. tube of First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum and the Ultra Repair Cream, which I'll review next.

Hubby and I have been using this 200mL/6.7fl. oz. pump bottle of Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Foaming Cleanser since moving home from Tokyo. I think we're almost half way through the bottle.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

I thought this 20mL/0.6fl. oz. sample tube of Fresh Soy Face Cleanser would last me at least a couple of weeks but I burned through it in half that time :(

La Mer Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream

At long last I finished my little 7mL/0.24oz. jar of La Mer Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream, which I'd started using since last spring! This was a deluxe sample from the Saks 5th Avenue's holiday 2013 GWP, quite a while ago.

Addiction Ready To Wear Eye Palette Part II

After swatching Addiction Ready To Wear Eye Palette in 05 Departure, I knew I had to pick up 06 Es Paradis also. Thank goodness I did, because some time in early September, these palettes disappeared from Addiction's website. They haven't returned since, which makes me thing they've been discontinued. They weren't available at the department store counters, and I just checked Rakuten JP and didn't see any there either. Only a couple are currently listed on e(vil)bay at a marked up price ($90-105!).

Beauty Protector Finishing Powder SPF50+ PA+++

Last of my new sun powder discovery is this 17g jar of Beauty Protector Finishing Powder SPF50+ PA+++. Being a translucent finishing powder, there's no color choice, but it's available in a smaller 6g jar for those who wants to sample first before committing.
