The lipstick is lovely, it doesn't have as much staying power as a MAC matt one (I usually wear Russian Red) but I've been applying it over the top and then just re-applying the YSL during the day and it is much more moisturising on my lips. I think the packaging looks pretty elegant as well, which is one of the drawbacks of MAC which really resemble a bullet.
Another thing that arrived from overseas was this pattern. It's Simplicity 4530, a shirt pattern from 1953 with the sleeves and collar cut in one with the shirt body.
There's the option of short cuffed sleeves or three-quarter sleeves gathered into a cuff. Two darts and the front and back waist. The collar is quite unusual as at the back it sort of overlaps itself - you can see it on The Makings of an Urban Rustic. Hopefully I can find some time soon to have a go at sewing if for myself.
