Guerlain Palette Meteorites – Radiant Pressed Powder, Blush, & Highlighter

Hello everyone,

I bought this palette from Sydney Duty Free which I believe is travel exclusive. They have a few items which are travel exclusive, it was so difficult for me to buy only one. I was tempted to buy them all but they all are quite expensive. It cost me around AUD135 for this palette 🙁

Guerlain1

This palette consists of:

  • Face Powder 8g
  • Blush 4.2g
  • Highlighter 4g
  • Guerlain2

This palette comes with a small brush and a mirror. I thought this palette is very handy for traveling, it has everything from powder, blush and also highlighter.

Guerlain3

Closer look of the inside, the powder is so pretty!!

Guerlain4

 Swatches: (from the top) blush, powder, and highlighter.

Guerlain5

In my opinion, this palette is just okay. Good to have but not a must. Even though, the SA told me the powder itself cost around AUD150, I still think this palette expensive.

Thanks for reading!

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream Review

 Hello!

It seems like all brands are launching their own BB cream. Chanel has come out with CC Cream few months ago, Dior has DiorSkin Nude BB Cream, and the list goes on.. Recently Guerlain launched Lingerie de Peau BB cream and I picked this up to try it on myself.

This product promises to correct skintone, provide hydration the whole day and not to make the skin feels oily. Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream comes in a rather big (long) tube with a dispenser at the end. This product comes in two shades; light and medium. I picked shade light.

This product has a creamy texture and it gives light to medium coverage. I usually use half pump to achieve light coverage and one pump to medium or even almost full coverage. I usually use my Real Technique Buffing Brush to achieve a lighter coverage and I’ll do a bit of finishing touch with my finger to spread the bb cream evenly all over my face. It has a rather dewy finish but it is not shiny at all. This product can cover redness on my face well. However when I have dark circle under my eye area, this products doesn’t help covering my dark circle too much. I still need to put some concealer to cover it.

Lingerie de Peau BB Cream has a strong smell. Some people might like it and some might want to avoid it. I personally don’t mind with the scent of this product. Another thing that makes me in love with this product is the lasting power. It last with me the whole day without fading and it doesn’t make my skin oily.

Swatch and Look:

I did a very simple look for my Sunday brunch last weekend. I prefer to have a simple look for my weekend brunch. Just a foundation, touch of neutral eyeshadow, eyeliner and blush. In this picture, I use half pump of Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream and did not set it with powder. As you can see, it doesn’t provide a too glowing finish but it surely helps my skin to look healthier.

 

Final Thought:

I bought this product a months ago and I have been using it nearly everyday. I simply love this product to the bits. I love the coverage, the skin tone correction and the lasting power. It doesn’t make my skin feel oily at all. The scent might annoys some of you so you need to smell this product before you buy it.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder N30

Hi everyone,

I saw so many people raving about this powder on Instagram.. I finally decided to visit my local Chanel store, I know I’m not turning back and decided to get this powder in N30. I chose one shade darker than my skin tone because I thought I can use it as a bronzer and all over the face during summer time.

IMG_0289

Packaging is similar with the other powder or blush packaging, but the white color makes it very special and sophisticated. It comes with a brush which I thought its okay but not great.

IMG_0290

IMG_0291

IMG_0293

The texture is very sheer and light. I love the scent of this powder too.

Below is the swatch of N30, it gives my skin more color than N20.

IMG_0299

To be honest, I kinda regret bought this instead of N20, I went to Chanel counter the other day and SA applied N20 all over my face (quite heavily) and I love it!! It brighten my skin suddenly. My verdict is great powder for all over the face but just okay when it comes for shading. Available in Australia in 6 shades with N20 as the lightest shade, retail price AUD80.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to show FOTD using this powder as this is very sheer. My suggestion is for you to try it in the counter before you buy and if you don’t have local Chanel counters then go with the same shade of your foundation or your usual shade.

CHANEL Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow Cream #10

Chanel has just released a new collection – Les Beiges Chanel. I know so many of you in Europe/USA might have seen this collection earlier but this collection has just hit Singapore stores last week. Initially I wanted to pick the powder but I ended up picking up the All in One Healthy Glow Cream . I was told by the SA that this is an Asia Exclusive product, but if anyone has a different information on this, please correct me. 

IMG_5217

 

Chanel  All in One Healthy Glow Cream comes in a identical packaging with the Chanel CC Cream (reviewed here). The only difference is the color of the tube. Chanel Les Beiges Cream comes in a soft nude tube while Chanel CC cream comes in a white packaging. There’s nothing special in this squeezable tube. It’s light, simple and just too plain for my liking.

IMG_5218

 

Texture/Staying Power:

CHANEL Les Beiges Cream has a very light texture. It is one of the lightest base make up I have ever owned. If you have tried MUFE HD foundation, Chanel Les Beiges Cream has a similar texture to it but this is even lighter. The coverage is medium. Les Beiges Cream helps to conceal my dark circles and small spots. However when the time of the month come, it doesn’t help to conceal few pimples that pops out. Les Beiges Cream  gives a healthy glow finish. I love how my face looks like upon application. It makes my face looks fresh and not oily.

Les Beiges Cream stays on my face throughout the day. I don’t see it fades at the end of the day. Please note that my skin is normal but oily on the T-zone. My T-zone area looks normal after 6 hours of wearing, but after 9 hours it starts to fades.

This base make up has a very nice scent in it. It is the signature Chanel skincare smell which I really like. The smell fades away quickly upon application, so for you who dislike scent in a product, this might not be a problem as it fades quickly.

IMG_5223

CHANEL Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow Cream comes in two shades; #10 and #20. The SA recommended me to get #10 as Les Beiges collection is created to give more healthy glow and radiant. The shade blends into my skintone nicely. It doesn’t make me look pale at all.

Comparison with other foundation:

I did a comparison between Chanel Les Beiges Cream and my other foundation staples

Chanel CC Cream – Le Beige Cream #10 – Chanel Perfection Lumiere #12 Beige Rose – MUFE HD #117 – Kiehl’s BB Cream Fair

IMG_5225

 

Compared to Chanel CC Cream, Les Beiges cream has a lighter texture. However the coverage is similar. The Chanel SA told me that CC cream has a skincare benefits whereas Les Beiges Cream is just a base make up that helps to brighten the skin. Personally I feel that I like the Les Beiges Cream better because of it’s light texture. I like Chanel CC cream too but sometimes I feel it’s a bit too thick for CC Cream. CC Cream is thicker n its texture, therefore Les Beiges is more suitable for people with oily skin rather than CC Cream.

If I have to compare Les Beiges Cream to Chanel Perfection Lumiere; I’d say both are very different. Perfection Lumiere has a matte finish and the coverage is medium to full coverage. Les Beiges is much lighter and has a glowy finish.

Kiehl’s BB Cream is light and brighten my skin too;  These two are similar in their texture – both are light. However Les Beiges provide better coverage. Lastly, the comparison between MUFE HD foundation and Les Beiges Cream. MUFE HD has a light texture but Les Beiges is a bit lighter than MUFE HD. In terms of coverage, MUFE HD provides better coverage than Les Beiges Cream.

 

Final Thought:

Chanel Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow Cream is a good base make up that provides light texture with a nice coverage for daily use. It makes my face looks glowy without making it look oily. However I don’t think Chanel Les Beiges Cream is not something special that you should have. It’s a very nice product but not the highly must have product on my list.

Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #5 review

IMG_5200

Hello all!

I’m going to do a quick review on the product that I recently acquired. Thanks to Jacqueline from mybeautyhoard for helping me to get this bottle of product. Recently Giorgio Armani releases few shades of Armani Fluid Sheer and #5 is one of them. I have told myself to stop getting more make up items as it has grown out of control, however I really can’t skip on this beautiful baby. It is just a classic beauty.

Here’s some information I’ve extracted from Giorgio Armani Beauty Website

Fluid sheer dresses skin in an illuminating veil of radiance. This unique, translucent formula is available in a range of versatile hues including makeup base shades, correcting shades, and radiance boosting shades. Blend your favorite fluid sheer with foundation to add radiance, polish and sculpting definition to your complexion. Or use it alone as a makeup base. All skin types.

  • perfects, sculpts and illuminates skin
  • complete and versatile shade range
  • doubles as eye shadow base, blush or bronzer
  • sheer, lightweight texture and coverage

application techniques: 
Apply with the blender brush to wear alone or mixed with foundation for a boost of radiance and color. Use on top of foundation for added highlighting and contouring.

Once again, Armani Beauty has released a range of product that is lust worthy. I am a big fan of radiant, glowing skin; so this product literally jumps out of me. Giorgio Armani fluid sheer comes in simple glass bottle packaging. The packaging looks like Armani Designer Lift foundation which I have reviewed here. The only difference is that Fluid Sheer comes in a non matte glass bottle. Most of the time, Armani does not create fancy packaging, their packaging is just simple and elegant. Yes, simple and elegant are the right words.

Fluid Sheer #5 is a shimmery coral blush/highlighter. What I love about this product is that the liquid feels very light. It is non sticky at all and there’s no smell in this product. It blends out very nicely, it doesn’t look chalky or frosty at all. It gives a right amount of glow on my face.

I have done a quick swatch for you all. You can see in my swatch above that when it is pumped, it looks striking coral. However after blended, it looks very natural. The color blends nicely with my skin tone and it gives a very nice glow on me without making it look oily.  This can be mixed with your foundation to create a radiant look all over your face. For me, I usually dab this on my cheek after I apply my foundation and I topped it off with my loose powder. If I would have more sheen, I’ll dab this product lightly on my cheek to accentuate the glow on my face.

The only downside I found from this product is the staying power. I find that this product doesn’t sits on my face for too long. It starts to disappear after 4-5 hours after application. My daily job requires me to be inside office most of the time and this product doesn’t show it’s amazing lasting power. I personally don’t have any issue on this as i will always touch up my make up at the end of the day whenever I have an events or a dinner to attend.

Final Thought:

I am currently in love with my purchase and I highly recommend Armani Fluid Sheer for all of you who wants to have a nice liquid highlighter without being frosty.

Thank you for reading!
