Burberry Sheer Summer Glow Swatches and Review

Summer make up has hit the stores! There were many bronzers that I have been eyeing for these few weeks, however I am glad that I am able to pass few gorgeous bronzers such as Dior Nude Tan, Chanel Sable Beige and Guerlain Emillio Pucci. I am not a heavy user of bronzer thus there’s no need for me to buy a lot of them. However, I can’t avoid buying Burberry’s Summer Glow. Such a pretty and classy packaging and yes it’s a limited edition! Moreover, the color suits my skintone very well. It’s not too dark and can be worn as a highlighter as well. Buying this is like shooting two birds at a time, you’re getting an item that can be used for two functions. This item is retailing at S$90.

Burberry

As usual, there’s a unique scent in every Burberry’s make up products. I don’t know how to describe the scents but I like it. As you can see, there are 4 colors here. When I want to sculpt my face, I’ll use the two darker color on the left. The color combination provides a dark color that doesn’t look too obvious on my skin. On the other hand, when I want to highlight my face in a more natural way, I’ll swipe my brush on the two lighter colors. On the picture below, I have swatched each color for your reference

As you can see, the two colors on the right are very sheer. I won’t recommend to swipe your brush on this palette entirely if you want to use this as a bronzer (unless you are very very fair). In my opinion, swiping your brush as the two darker color will provide the best shade for asian fair skin tone.

My final conclusion of this product:

The packaging of this product is a standard metal packaging from Burberry (like Burberry’s blusher). It looks elegant, mature and beautiful . The texture is very smooth and silky. This is very easy to be applied on the cheeks and I am loving the finish. It’s not totally matte; it contains micro silver shimmer that gives you the perfect glow. If you are looking for a true bronzer, I don’t think this is for you. It’s less dark than most bronzer thus this won’t really show. But if you are looking for a more natural bronzer, you’ll definitely need this. I find it hard to find a bronzer that doesn’t look too harsh on me and finally Burberry has this product that I need 🙂 Overall I am very satisfied with this product and loving it.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Rose

Hi lovely readers! How was your Christmas? I wish that it was a fun and joyous day for you all 😀

Today I’m going to show you this Bobbi Brown Brick Compact in Rose. This product can be worn as a bronzer, blush and a highlighter as well. I pick this on Changi Airport because it’s so much cheaper compared to the selling price in the department store outside the airport. The selling price in airport was about $50-$60 (I can’t remember the exact price).

 

As you can see in the picture above, this shimmer brick compact is very shimmery. If you have been reading my blog, you’ll know that I’m such a shimmer lover. That’s why I suddenly fell in love when I saw this compact for the first time 🙂

 

The pink color of the blush looks soft enough for me. I love pink color on my cheeks, it just brighten my daily looks. It makes my skin looks more fresh.

One thing I like about this product is the heavy shimmer they have. I usually will put extra highlighter on my cheeks after I applied my blush. But with this product, I would not need to do so again. The shimmer inside this product is good enough to make my skin looks more glossy.

Here’s how it looks on my skin 🙂

 

I love how it looks on my cheeks. It’s not too much for me and it looks very sweet on my skin. 😀
HAPPY HOLIDAY GUYS!!

Chanel Bronze Corail Bronzer Review and swatches | Chanel summer 2011

There are two variations of Soleil Tan de Chanel; the Rose Bronze and Bronze Corail. In this post, I’m going to do a review and swatch for Bronze Corail.

Bronze Corail is part of Chanel Summer 2011 collection. It’s a bronzer that consists of 4 different colors.

a warm shimmery brown color

a light caramel color

a darker brown color

and a peachy pink color

all the colors are finely pigmented for a bronzer. You most likely will not overdo your shading with this bronzer.

As usual, Chanel comes with a beautiful packaging that makes a die hard Chanel cosmetics fans like me go crazy over it 😀 

It comes with a blusher which is very useful mainly for travelling. The brush is fluffy enough to apply the bronzer all over our face.

Here’s the swatch:

as for me, I usually use the color in the bottom to highlight my cheek.

as you can see, the net weight of this  bronzer is 0.49 OZ which is good enough for us to use it in a long run. Yay!

 

So have you guys tried this? is this going to be one of your favorite bronzer? 🙂 leave us a comment below..

 

xoxo,

MeMo 🙂
