Sweet & Steady Sep '09

Picked up the September issues of Sweet (S$19) and Steady (S$17.20) which arrived in Kinokuniya today. Sweet came with a green/black gingham print Paul & Joe Sister polyester tote bag while Steady came with a Rebecca Taylor zip pouch and scrunchie.

The Paul & Joe tote is well-made and does not feel flimsy at all. It is very roomy with a broad base, perfect for people like me who like to throw lots of random stuff in their bags and go.

On the other hand, I was disappointed with the quality of the Rebecca Taylor accessories as they are very thin and felt somewhat cheap. The mag itself is still an interesting read as it comes with a special hair section with 100 ways of arranging your hair.

Some of the fall makeup looks featured in Sweet.

This pair of limited edition Lancome Palettes Blush, Eye & Face (6825yen) will be released in Japan on 11 September. Looks very promising! The embossed print reminds me of Majolica Majorca somehow.

The October issue of Sweet (due out 12 September) will come with an Anna Sui cosmetic case.

The October issue of Steady (due out 7 September) will come with an Agnes B. Voyage canvas tote bag (18x32x11.5cm) with a heart shaped charm. I'll probably be snapping both up!

The Marc by Marc Jacobs mook with the large canvas tote is back in stock at Kinokuniya. The first shipment sold out in a flash, predictably so as it's quite rare to score a Marc Jacobs tote for just S$27.

Kino Singapore's air shipment days for magazines from Japan are Wednesdays and Fridays so probably Steady will arrive on Wed 9 September.
