RMK Irresistible Lips C 3.8g 3,150円 (税込)
EX-02 White Pink was a limited edition release (hence the ‘EX’ prefacing the shade number) from the Spring Modern collection of 2010. It’s a much loved member of my lipstick family, and, in the year I’ve had it, has somehow edged itself into being my most used lipstick. It’s a colour I use a lot in the warmer months, but mostly I blame the soft texture for its speedy depletion.
(Please excuse the ugly white sticker. I label my lipsticks with the season of purchase/first use so I’ll know when they get old.)

SONIA RYKIEL Rouge a Levres 5.0g
3 variations, LE
This little pot of lipgloss was part of SONIA RYKIEL’s limited edition Christmas collection from 2008. The collection was titled Baisers (Kisses), hence the lip pattern. The signature SONIA RYKIEL gold striped packaging was also replaced with solid hot pink, a change I definitely appreciate.
Although I purchased this when it was released back in 2008, it’s taken a while for me to use it, and I only really started using this earlier this year. I’m a little sorry to dig holes into the lip print, but I’m not one to buy makeup solely for aesthetic purposes so it had to be used eventually. :D

I haven’t tried the (more famous?) Armanisilk lipsticks yet — I’m holding off till an LE colour I love, but the Shine and Silk lipsticks are so nice I’m really looking forward to trying Armanisilk. ﾟ.+:｡ﾞd(・ω・*)ﾈｯﾟ.+:
#33 was (maybe?) a limited edition shade from this year’s Spring collection. #4 is definitely a permanent colour. And actually these two colours look very, very similar in the tube! ∩(+｀ω´+)∩･･･ｷｭｩ I didn’t realise that when I was buying them though. But the difference in pigmentation means they don’t apply the same on me. ← self-consolation(?) ∩(´∀｀)∩ｳｪｰ ﾊｯﾊｯﾊ♪

GUERLAIN Kiss Kiss Gloss 6ml／5.8g
This shade, 801 Gold Temptation, was a limited edition release from 2007’s gold-themed Holiday collection. I didn’t own any gold glosses at that time (this is my first and only one) so curiosity, and the limited edition snowflakes on gold packaging, prompted me to purchase this.
(The photos in this post are not completely colour accurate. I’m still struggling with RAW to JPEG conversions. But the gloss looks cooler and more yellow-toned in real life than it does here on my screen.)

SUQQU blend lipstick 2.5g 5,250円 (税込)
SUQQU, the higher end sister to RMK, really appeals to me somehow.（♡´∀`♡） I love their packaging — it’s simple, but elegant and (dark) PURPLE! ♥♥♥ my favourite colour ☆(●´∀｀●)ﾆｺ — and the presentation of their seasonal releases always looks so pretty! ♥ And I really like the traditional Japanese names given to each shade. It’s definitely more interesting than something like PK22. (*￣∇￣)ノAHAHA
This blend lipstick shade, 16 瑞華 (Mizuka), was one of five new shades for Spring 2009, 桜春影 (Sakurakage). The five new shades are all permanent releases.

IPSA skin beauty lipstick 2g 3,150円 (税込)
This is a discontinued shade, which is probably why I got it free as a member gift. There aren’t many shades left, and new lipstick shades are released in the beauty essence formula so I’m thinking the skin beauty lipstick’s days are numbered.

ETTUSAIS Sweet Marble Gloss 8g 1,575円 (税込)
I’m not really into ETTUSAIS, but they have some cute makeup, regularly release LE items and generally aren’t too expensive, so I suppose I like them!
Sweet Marble Gloss and its cheek counterpart, Sweet Marble Cheek Colour (I picked up one of these as well), are limited edition items from the Spring/Summer 2009 collection, with 3 shades to choose from each.
