Vivi December

I don't know what's up with my blog, but some of my pictures can't seem to be clicked on to enlarge. I might have to go back to using the generic blogger layouts soon. *sigh*

Vivi December is out already! My friend got this in HK a few days ago before she flew back. I also have the November issue but haven't taken pictures of it. Vivi seems to be less and less makeup-y these days, but I can't complain.

This issue has a little booklet called Christmas Coffret Super Catalog. I've already ordered from one of the holiday collections for my Christmas present. It better get here by the end of the week, I'm sooo impatient!

There's yet another collaboration of Vivi and Visee. There are 2 palettes (mauve and beige brown) and a mascara. The mauve one reminds me a lot of the Bobbi Brown mauve collection, except I'm sure the Visee is a lot prettier.

I finally got my first brow product! This is Maquillage's newst one called Powder Touch Eyebrow in GY950. I can't really compare this with anything I've used, but this pencil is supposed to be powder. It's also thicker than the average pencils.
It glides on with a powdery feel and finish so it looks super natural. For a first time brow product user, this is pretty idiot proof as the color is very buildable and it's easy to correct mistakes.
The color is darker than what it looks like on the pencil, but I haven't taken a good swatch or before/after pictures yet.

I got this on Adam Beauty for about $12. What a great deal! Plus it'll probably last forever.

I agree that Vivi is less about makeup these days, and I am not into nail art (they had such a big section on them) :X I wish we can see the magazines doing a round-up or product award thing in december issues (i remember Nonno did last year?) it was so interesting to see what's popular among the Japanese' makeup bags !!! LOL

i agree too. I saw this vivi in my local store, but it costs MYR 48 which is very expensive for me, the price is even higher than VoCe so i gave up! thanks for the scans

Was the Maquillage brow pencil a special offer or that's the original price? If it's the later then IM' totally blind...how could I miss it???? o___O;

Thank you for the scans!! I wish I can enlarge pics but I understand how blogger messes things up sometimes.. Occasionally if you upload all the pics once again they will enlarge the 2nd time you post but that's so bothersome.
And the pencil seems cool, show us how it looks on your brows!
