In love with Khaki Shades? Guerlain Coup de Foudre might be your choice!

Hi all,

Guerlain has released its spring collection and one of the eyeshadow quad caught my attention.  The colors look so lively but yet still wearable. Lately I have been drawn into khaki greens and I thought Coup de Foudre would be a good addition to my collection. One thing that always stops me from buying Guerlain is the hefty price tag, but last week I picked this in the airport so this costs less to me. I paid for S$75 for this.

The Packaging:

Coup de Foudre has the same packaging as other Guerlain Quads. It’s in a hefty golden case that’s reflective. The packaging is so luxurious and it comes with velvet pouch too.

The Color & Texture:

Coup de Foudre has a very nice color combination. Who would have thought you can combine coral with khaki eyeshadow? Only Guerlain does it right! 🙂 There are 4 colors in this palette; a khaki green mixed with silver and has a metallic finish, a coral with a hint of pink with a metallic finish too, There’s also a frosty green and lastly a grey with a hint of deep green.

The texture of this palette is excellent! It’s very smooth, buttery and glides on nicely on my arms when I swatch it. The pigmentation is satisfying, the color shows up nicely on the first swipe. I don’t experience any fallout when I swatch the eyeshadow. What I love most from this quad is the metallic finish look which looked different with other brands metallic finish. For me, Coup de Foudre swatch has a very nice finish that looks expensive.

Final Thought:

Guerlain has once again come out with an excellent eyeshadow for spring! The textures glides on beautifully and blends nicely! What more can I say? I love it! 🙂

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

Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadows in 12 Konruri

Today I am showing you the last Suqqu product that I bought during my holiday in UK. I picked this Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow in 12 Konruri because of the blue and the neutral colors. I find the color looks very nice in the pan for both day and night look. I believe this eyeshadow is part of their Summer 2012 release.

The packaging:

The packaging is the standard Suqqu packaging. I won’t talk so much about it as I have talked about the packaging in my other posts on Suqqu. You can read it here.

The Color:

There are 5 colors in this palette. Two of them are blue; a deep blue with a satiny finish and the other is a blue with silver shimmer. The rest of the colors are neutrals; the one at the top left is a shimmery champagne, the one at the top right is a shimmery taupe and the one in the bottom left is a matte beige with a slight pink.

I find the color combination is very interesting. In fact I can use this palette for both day and night look. Or if you’d like to explore the colors, you could always mix the blue and neutral colors together.

 Natural Light

Direct Sunlight

The Texture: 

Just like other Suqqu eyeshadows, Konruri has excellent texture and pigmentation. It’s extremely smooth and has no fallout when applied. The pigmentation is great and I think it’s even better than my other Suqqu eyeshadows. The shimmers have smoother texture compared to the matte color. Although the matte color is not as smooth as the shimmers, the matte still performs very well. The matte is not chalky at all and I like to use this to highlight my browbone.

My Look:

 

I hope you like this review and look 🙂

For those who celebrate Lunar New Year, I wish you the best of luck in the year of snake!

Chanel Quad in Prélude

Today I have my first ever Chanel Quad in US formula!! Yayness!! 🙂

I own few Chanel quads but they’re in Asia/Europe baked version. I have always want to try Chanel quad in US version. Finally I have the quad in Prelude in US version 🙂

Prelude is a very pretty quad that’s very wearable and natural.The colors are suitable for most skin tone. It contains very fine shimmer but it doesn’t show too much when applied.

Texture:

I am wondering why Chanel needs to have two version of their eyeshadows. Personally I like US formula way much better. It’s buttery, smooth, pigmented and almost has no fallouts! On the other hand, Asia/Europe baked formula has more shimmer but the fall out is irritating. It’s also not as pigmented as the US formula. I really hope that Chanel could make the same formula all over the world (with US version formula definitely, please!)

Pigmentation:

The pigmentation of this palette is fine. It’s not fantastic and not disappoints too. I think this would be suitable for ladies who want natural eye look. I don’t think this color will make you look too much. The color shown on my arm above is taken under natural light and applied two layers.

Final Thought:

Overall I am satisfied with my first Chanel quad in US version. Although the pigmentation is not as good as what I would expected, the smoothness and the texture does not disappoints.

Burberry Complete Eye Palette in 05 Dark Spice

Burberry Complete Eye Palette in 05 Dark Spice  is my second Burberry palette, I have reviewed the smokey grey here. No doubt about it, this palette texture are amazing, very buttery and pigmented. Also this colors are more in my comfort zone.

I found this palette very unique in the color combination with three matte colors and one with gold flecks color.  Following picture are the closer look of the palette, having said that because of the lighting (I guess :p), the first picture capture the color much better.

The only problem I’ve got, I think this only happen to me tho. I found this quite challenging to use all the 4 colors in one go and the second color from the top is difficult to blend. Anyway we don’t have to use all the four colors in one look right? Below swatches are taken without primer and colors are beautifully smooth and pigmented.

And here’s my look with Dark Spice paired with Burberry Tangerine blush, more details coming soon 🙂

Thanks for reading!
