i have a thing for... LIPSTICK QUEEN

 The Saint & Sinner - one of the best sellers from Lipstick Queen

lipstick to me, was a sign of femininity, of mature women when i was young. confession - as a girl when i went home after school, there's nobody home except the maid. i would sneak into my mother's room, quietly opening her makeup cases and search for treasures to play around with. she had an amazing collection of lipsticks, from rouge to nude, i tried every single one of them like i was in a candy store. i think my mom didn't notice... but yeah that was part of my secret childhood memory... hehe.

saw this brand from Stylesight earlier - Lipstick Queen. especially like how they use Art Noveau style illustrations for packaging. i buy lipsticks now and then, but i was never able to finish any one of them... leaving me tubes of lipsticks standing next to each other, abandoned in a makeup drawer. if i had a daughter, i wonder if she would do the same as what i did to my collection??

Alphonse Mucha is one of my favorite art nouveau illustrators. love the way how he portraits women, so legendary and Goddess-like. love the way he used colours and the jewelery designs too, seemed like he knows what women want???
