I’d be totally honest with you that I’m not really a big lover of chocolates. I do like them though! Haha I have my chosen favorites ( Royce and Crunch, primarily ) , but I do have friends who have this ultimate, sky-high love for chocolates that I see their eyes sparkle with the mention of it. They live for it, and it is such indulgence for them.
chocolate as a milestone of your life.
a piece of chocolate evokes your most precious moments,
bittersweet memories of fist love, of joyful celebrations…
close your eyes, savor the flavors of life,
evoke the next chapter of an exciting journey that you have never tasted before.
Take a look at this saying. I think people who love chocolates can even resort to poetry! Such sweetness!
BUT if you translate chocolates into makeup, NOW we’re talking. I do, I do, I do love chocolate shades!!!!
Just last week, I braved the rain to attend Shu Uemura’s Chocolat Donna launch. I was able to bring with me a good friend, Jacqe, who was a big, big chocolate lover. She was just so happy that night!
Highlights of the night include :
and of course…my major highlight of the night…
Playing with the Mon Shu doll made me so excited about this Holiday’s Shu Uemura collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld. My goodness I can hardly wait!
Anyway, without further adieu, let me introduce to you the Chocolat Donna Collection!
the 135th autumn / winter 2012 mode make-up collection is a chocolate-inspired collection filled with passion, love, and delight.
a delicious make-up confection that lifts the emotion and celebrates your sweet and bitter memories and your delicious future.

FOR LIPS & NAILS
rouge unlimited supreme matte
beloved rouge unlimited in extremely matte yet creamy texture with comfortable moisture feel on lips that achieves intense color pay off. choco-inspired colorful confections ranging from milky beige to hot cherry pink.
spice up your fingertips with melted dark chocolate and luminous icing accent.
complete your chocolat-look with an irresistible indulgence-lashes in brown feather with gold and silver accents.
So, what items from this collection has spiked your fancy? If you ask me, I am totally smitten with the Raspberry & Mocha palette! I find that it is just so me! Also, I am interested with the two blushes. They seem so candy-ish and fresh! The lipsticks aren’t looking bad either, but I would want to check them out in counters! Oooh, this Holiday season is surely getting exciting with the offerings from Shu Uemura.
