My Latest Addiction (pun intended)

I go through phases with makeup. One day, I feel the need to own every nude lipsticks ever made, and the next day,  I'm tracking down every limited edition peach pink blushers (with cute embossing) ever released. The same lack of commitment holds true when it comes to powder and cream products. Hence, my owning seven cream/liquid cheek products in one order. In my defense, I was going through a dry skin phase from being too adventurous with trying out different chemical peels -- in the colder months.

Addiction is a Japanese brand founded by Ayako, who many know is the former NARS creative director. Apart from a few bold blush color similarities between both brands, there really isn't a whole lot of overlap. Addiction focuses mainly on more sheer and shimmery delivery, whereas NARS really hones in on the bold and pigmented.

Estée Lauder Courrèges Illuminations Face Powder

After receiving three Asia exclusive highlighters in the mail from a dear friend of mine last week, the last thing I really needed to purchase was -- yet another -- illuminating powder. To be honest, I didn't even know Estee Lauder was collaborating with Courreges for a limited edition collection. This collection seems to be exclusive to Sephora at the moment, and only for VIB and VIB Rouge customers.
