I wanted to write this post for a long time already. Here are my favourite purse mirrors, I absolutely love all of them.
The first one is by Rouge Bunny Rouge which is also available in black variation and which you can get at zuneta. One side of it has a magnifying mirror = great bonus.
The second one I’ve got several years ago from a Swedish brand Oriflame. I have not idea why I was so attracted to this “hippie style” mirror which is not my style but I loved it so much. It was very cheap so I regret that I didn’t get 3 or even more mirrors because these are not available any more.
The last one which is the biggest one is from shu uemura’sTsumori Chisato collection. This mirror is great for travelling as is it not big but enough to apply your makeup.
Products I can’t live without:
Lets take a look at the shu umemura and Paloma Faith makeup collection which consists of 4 products which all are classic and look lovely. I personally want the lashes but wouldn’t really mind ALL the collection.
shu uemura Paloma Faith Make–up Palette, £57
This make–up palette is designed to enhance and glow. It includes two pressed eyeshadows to add a little drama to the eyes, along with ‘Glow on’ blush to define and enhance cheekbones. Can be used wet to intensify colour pay–off.
shu uemura Paloma Faith False Lashes, £55
This stunning pair of Swarovski encrusted false eyelashes, with over 35 Swarovski crystals applied to the lashes, your eyes will have the ultimate va–va–voom appeal.

In the New Year I plan to pay more attention to some Asian brands because it seems that I always miss so many great products. So why not starting with shu uemura? It’s a shame that I have so very few products from the brand but I would love to change that!
Take a look at their stunning Spring 2011 collection called Morphorium. I L-O-V-E the combination of the colours the model is wearing on her eyes, isn’t is gorgeous?
Kakuyasu Uchiide, shu uemura’s Creative Director was inspired by the Blue Morpho butterflies and tropical forest when he was creating this collection.

This is what is written about the collection:
“As an expert in the art of false eyelashes, shu uemura’s tokyo lash bar has established itself to be a hot and trendy beauty staple internationally. In a new sophistication, neo-tokyo girls get dressed up in cyber sexy fashion with enchanting eye make-up and extravagant, glimmering lashes.”
I don’t usually post such big promo photos but this time I just couldn’t resize them! There are 3 gorgeous pair of lashes, take a look yourself:
Graceful, flirtatious eyelashes with diamond-like glitter coating each strand of hair.
