Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rosegold and Amethyst

Hello hello!

Let’s talk about these new items on my stash which I purchased from Sephora. Jacqueline from MyBeautyHoard has been telling me how much she loves this product and I have seen a lot of swatches of these on her blog.

I picked up Rosegold and Amethyst to try for the first time.

Caviar Stick Eye Color comes in a very handy size; as the name suggest, it comes in a stick form and you can get the product by twisting the pen.

Laura Mercier comes in a buttery and soft texture. I love how the product just glides on my skin and shows the color in just one swipe. It doesn’t take too much effort to blend the color nicely – I usually use my finger or my eyeshadow blending brush like Tom Ford #13 Eyeshadow Blend Brush or MAC 217 to blend the colors evenly all over my lid.

 

I picked up Rosegold and Amethyst.

Rosegold is a soft gold tone with a pink undertone which is very nice to be used as a eyeshadow base. I usually apply this eyeshadow as a base color on my work days and I am good to go. For a more defined look, I am using Rosegold as a base and I will top it up with powder eyeshadow.

Amethyst is a deep brown with a purple undertone in it. It has golden shimmer in it. I use this on the corner of my eye to create a subtle smokey look. I also use this as an eyeliner; I picked up a slanted eyeliner brush and pick up the product and draw it on my lash line.

What I love most about Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour is the long lasting and the creaseless finish. Many cream eyeshadow crease on me and fade after I finish my day, but Caviar Stick Eye Color stays perfectly for almost the whole day without creasing. After using this for the whole day and try to remove it, it requires no hard effort at all. I am using my eye make up remover and I cleanse my eye make up using one cotton pad.

Overall, I am liking this caviar sticks for the ease of application and for the long staying power. These are my first purchase and definitely won’t be my last.

Chanel Spring 2013: Illusion d’Ombres in Diapasson & Le Vernis in Tapage Swatches

IMG_9196

 

After reading so many positive review on Diapasson, I finally decided to purchase this item. Diapasson is added to the permanent collection and it is a deep purple with very fine shimmer. I am a big fan of Chanel Illusion d’Ombre; I love the bouncy and smooth texture. The eyeshadow is so easy to apply and to blend and the pigmentation is superb!

Diapasson is a deep purple with duochrome effect. In certain light, I see it as a deep purple and sometime I see a hint of brown in it. In this picture, I couldn’t really capture the shimmer but you may see the fine shimmers in the next picture below. I applied two layers on the swatch below. The swatches below is taken outdoor with indirect sunlight.

I did a comparison of Diapasson and some other two Illusion d’Ombres that I think might look similar. They are Illusoire and Ebloui. The swatches below is taken under indoor lighting. The shimmers are captured better here.

Initially I thought Illusoire would look quite similar to Diapasson but it turned out that Illusoire looks much deeper and it has a deep grey tone in it too. Ebloui carries a plummy tone but it also leans more to brown shade.

I also purchased the nail polish shade from this collection. Le Vernis Tapage looks like a very deep pink that leans towards red. I love Chanel red nail polish so I thought of adding this to my red nail polish collection. In the swatch below, I applied two coats of Tapage and I used Chanel Extreme Shine top coat.

Here’s a quick swatch of Tapage:

And there it goes my pick for Chanel Spring 2013! I have posted a short review of Chanel Quad in Quadrille and the Cream Blush in Intonation few days ago, you may read the post here.

So what is your pick from this collection?

Quick Swatch: Maybelline Color Tattoo is now available in Singapore

Hi ladies,

Memoiselle has been quiet for the last few days because of Chinese New Year holiday. Now I am back to my daily activities and would like to show you a quick swatch of Maybelline Color Tattoo. Color tattoo is finally available in Singapore after so long! It has been available since late 2012 but only now I found myself time to start posting on this.

I am sure many of you have seen Color Tattoo reviews online and I hope it’s still fine for me to write something about it :) Please stay tune to know more.

The Packaging:

Maybelline Color Tattoo has a similar packaging design with Chanel Illusion d’Ombre and Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill. The pot is made of glass and has a black cap. I have snapped a comparison picture for Maybelline’s color tattoo packaging with the two other brands and as you can see in the picture below, it looks quite similar. I personally love the packaging of Color Tattoo; it looks simple and nice. It doesn’t look cheap at all.

The Texture and Lasting Power:

Color tattoo has a very similar texture to Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow. It’s easy to wear as a base or crease color. So far I have been using Color Tattoo as a base color and it works very well on me. The pigmentation is good, the color shows up in just first swipe.

On the lasting power, I think Maybelline color tattoo is famous for its great staying power. At first I was kind of skeptical and doesn’t believe that Color Tattoo stays for long. But when I tried it on me, it stays for the whole day and I only see a very minimal crease because I have an oily lids.  This is very satisfying! :)

Swatches:

The Color:

Bad to The Bronze – As the name says, it’s a bronze color with a slight shimmer.

Permanent Taupe – A matte greyish taupe. I see this more as a grey color rather than taupe. I find this color rather flat and boring.

Edgy Emerald – It’s a very nice jade green color which is also the pantone 2013 color. Definitely my favorite :)

Immortal Charcoal – An ashy grey, best for base smokey eye color. I love this color, it looks sexy ;)

Turquoise Forever – It’s truly a turquoise color as the name says. It’s a fun color that reminds me of a colorful peacock.

Final Thought:

Maybelline Color Tattoo is a very good choice for creaseless cream shadow in an affordable price. The packaging looks simple and nice, the texture is nice to be blended and to be used as a base too. Last but definitely not least, the staying power is awesome!

Maybelline Color Tattoo is now available in Singapore, retailing at S$15.90
