Shu Uemura's Chocolat-Donna collection...

If most women would go gaga over designer bags and diamonds...yours truly would seriously go nuts over chocolates and makeup!  

So imagine my delight when this two are combined for Shu Uemura's latest makeup 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.

So what's exactly in this collection?

My dinner date, Phoebe

My dearies, meet the Mon Shu girl!

Of course, we didn't pass on the chance to have a photo-op with the uber cute Mon Shu girl:

Phoebs and I had fun measuring our SHUgar level:

We had a sumptuous dinner and of course, chocolate fondue:

Life is really good.  Most especially if you are surrounded with friends, good food (chocolate, most especially) and gorgeous makeup!

I had this for 2 weeks before I had the heart to eat it...

Anything that you like in this collection?  
I wanna get the Orange and Pistachio eye palette and the Framboisier glow-on!

Warning though, be sure you have the courage to dip your brush on to the eye palettes...they are so gorgeous you'll break your heart before you can get to use it.
