Haven't I seen her before? + lemming


The promo images of the Cle de Peau (by Shiseido) Absolute beauty spring look 2009 left me mesmerized by the beauty of the cover model. I absolutely dig her heavy eyeliner and peachy nude lips. However, I could not shake the feeling that I have seen that look before:

Indeed, she looks a lot like the old-school bombshell Brigitte Bardot...both makeup-wise and hairwise. Even the image that she is lying seductively on the bed: very Bardot-esque.

Anyway, after seeing these pictures and after an important listing of Cle de Peau eyeshadow palette in Jojoba's Top Favourite Items From 2008-list, I find myself in dire need of a Cle de Peau eyeshadow palette. I only hesitate about which colour palette I am going to take. I love neutrals for eyes, so the 121 looks less red (and more suitable) for me. Or should I order another colour, such as the smokey palette in no 14 recommended by Jojoba?


Lemming dillema's....and I did forget to mention the average price of this palette (about $47 on ebay, and it retails for $75).

Still, I want I want I WANT!!!!


What are your lemmings right now? And, do you buy impusively when having a lemming, or do you wait and try to justify your purchase?

Hi! I nominated you for a triple award. I have no idea what it is but it's a way for me to pay tribute to some of my fave beauty blogs...one of which is yours! Just thought you should know. http://pinksith.blogspot.com/2009/02/triple-award-thingie.html

i'd get #14 instead of this. i'd be worried about this as it's kind of similar to my #1, which doesn't do anything for me as i am too dark for the light colours to do anything...

Her makeup is sooo simple yet glamorous! I've always wanted to try a CdP palette, but haven't decided which one, hahaha. They have so many choices! I eagerly await your review once you try it out!
