Keep scroling for Space.NK shopping suggestions...


Space.NK Shopping Suggestions:  The following are but a few of my favorite products available at Space.NK, with links to their swatch-heavy, comprehensive reviews on BP...
The entire contents of the *Spring Beauty Edit. 

Classic Tatcha packaging. 
Next up, a quick overview of the stunning Tatcha Sunrise Plum Blossom Lipstick.  Gorgeously packaged, this limited-edition creation features a glossy, weighty white case and a finely sculpted, highly moisturizing bullet of rich pinky plum color.

Formulated with nourshing ingredients and no scent, this natural pink applies sheerly for a wash of "my lips but better" beauty and can also be built up for more opacity (as demonstrated in the images that follow). Creamy, hydrating and extremely versatile, Sunrise Plum Blossom is effortless opulence at its best...much like the vibrant Kyoto Red (which is out of stock) this shade is predicted to sell out quickly.

In sum, if this lip color calls your name like it did mine, I urge you to act fast as I do not suspect it will be readily available for much longer!
