Obsession Du Jour: Shiseido x Alexander Wang 6.1.10

Do I have to even explain this?

You all know how obsessed I am with Alexander Wang.

Well he collaborated with Shesiedo on their Maquillage line. Unfortunately this is an Asia exclusive, however it is on e-bay for ridiculous prices.

Has anyone tried? Is it worth the e-bay prices?


PS- Happy June you all!


  1. Aw, you need not to buy them for ridiculous prices.
    Maquillage always do a big promotion, but products are not almost always worth their promotion.

    I don't mean they are worthless products.
    Some Japanese women love to buy them for the reasonable price in Japan, but I think Japanese women who really love makeup tend to avoid using Maquillage products just because they always look same...

  2. I agree with Mariko.

    Maquillage is not bad makeup, but for the price its better to either buy high-end brand stuff or cheaper brands with the same colors as Maquillage.

  3. I agree with the other posters, I wanted something from this collection too because I also am a fan of mr. alexander wang but I found the colors to be very dupable, shimmery/washed out looking for the most colors when I saw swatches and therefore completely not worth the price... don't let the greedy ebay sellers get you :D

  4. I'm torn by this becos I love Maquillage l/s. But it's all relative.

    I wouldn't pay more than £25 let's say for a lippie cos I'd prefer to get a foundation or something like that.

    And I can't check it out in person, I'm anal at checking things out first before buying where possible so not so good at buying online without.

    Don't think that helps you - sorry!

  5. To be honest...I just kind of of want to buy something because of Ryoko Shinohara in the far left of that bottom-right window there. (She's one of my idols.)

  6. I'm traveling in Asia right now and will definitely have to check this out!

  7. i actually have one of the palettes and i'm wearing it today! i think it's great, but how much is it going for on ebay? i bought it a while ago when i went to asia for (i think) $40-45.

  8. check out websites that sell makeup from asia, they will be cheaper than ebay
