Tom Ford Spring 2015 Swatches and EOTD of Raw Jade

IMG_4897 IMG_4901

If there’s a brand that always makes me excited over their launches, Tom Ford is definitely one of them! For Spring 2015, Tom Ford has launched some rather unusual colors. The brand focuses on bold eyeshades rather than the usual pastels shades that we would see in most brands.

Tom Ford has three limited edition eye color duos for this Spring;

  • Raw Jade
  • Crushed Indigo
  • Ripe Plum

Each palette would consist of two shades; an opaline shade that’s created uniquely for each palette and a darker metallic shade. Raw Jade is a khaki green and paired with a mint shimmery finish. Crushed Indigo is a combination of dark blue with shimmer and a metallic lavender shade. Ripe Plum is a combination between dark brown and a light metallic pink.

Without any doubt, Tom Ford eyeshadow delivers excellent pigmentation quality. This can be seen from my swatches above. It’s very easy to get the colors pop – no need too much layering. The eyeshadows can also be worn dry and wet. I’ve the swatches below for both wet and dry. When it is swatched wet, the metallic shades pops better than when it is swatched dry.

I’ve tried both wet and dry application to my eyelids; and for the sake of efficiency, I would prefer to wear it dry.

Here’s some closer look of Raw Jade when it is swatched both dry and wet over indirect sunlight.

For this spring collection, Tom Ford also released two new mascaras, Teal Intense and Black Plum.

“Tom Ford’s mascara has specially designed brush, full and dense, allows lash filling powders in a creamy formula to last throughout the day without clumping or crumbling, amplifying the eyes’ dramatic impact”

I’ve got Teal Intense to match with my Raw Jade, and so far this is one of the mascara that doesn’t smudge on me! Thumbs up!

Alongside with this collection, Tom Ford also releases 4 Lip Shines that which will be out earlier than the rest of the collection. This will arrive in February in Singapore.

In the EOTD below, I am using a green pencil eyeliner and smudge it out. I also used a primer under neath to make sure that the color stays longer. Then I applied the deep green shade on my outer corner and build the colors by layering. I applied the metallic mint green shade on my inner corner to accentuate the look. As you can see, when both colors are layered together, it creates a new shade of green – it comes out as a lovely mid metallic green.

Other than the excellent pigmentation, another thing that impressed me the most is the staying power. This eyeshadow stays perfectly for at least 6 hours with me. I did notice the color fades a little by the 9th hour, but it is totally forgivable as I was spending my time outdoor most of the time on that day.

Uk Trip Haul :D

Hello guys!

I have been shopping a lot during the holiday! UK has plenty of makeup brands that I could not find in Singapore and I took the chance of getting those things! I know I’ve been a bad girl during the holiday. When I reached home after the holiday, I felt guilty looking at my new stuffs :( But anyway I enjoyed my holiday so much and now I should work hard to pay off those shopping damages LOL :D

Suqqu

This is Suqqu counter in Selfridges Manchester. I didn’t take more pictures as I was too excited to look for products here. I had fun swatching many products. There are many items that are not available there because I think it sold out pretty quickly.

Here are my Suqqu haul; 2 eyeshadow, 1 blush and 1 eyebrow palette.

Illamasqua

These pictures are also taken in Illamasqua counter in Selfridges Manchester.  The Illamasqua counter there is very happening with 3 SAs that have dramatic makeup and dresses! The thing that gets me most excited is to see their blushes. I have Illamasqua blush in Hussy and I love it to bits. I had fun swatching at the blush counter and decided to pick

I purchased three items from Illamasqua; a blush, an eye palette and a cream highlighter.

Chantecaille

I picked this Chantecaille Classic Palette in Harrods. This palette was on sale together with the Tiger in the Wild palette. Chantecaille products pricing are so expensive even after the price reduction. I paid (£50 or £75, can’t remember exactly). Honestly I bought this only because I want to collect a product from a brand that I have never had before. I will do a review about this palette soon (I hope :) )

Drugstore Haul from Boots & Superdrug

I had fun in both Superdrugs and Boots mostly in between Christmas – New year because they are having generous promotions. I bought quite a number of products there as they are having a “Buy 2 get 3″ promotions and I will get a free goodie bag when I buy 5 products or more. Gosh I could not control myself and bought there things with me. I know I am a bad girl when it comes to shopping but I’ll give myself an excuse since this is a year end holiday :p

Real Technique Brushes

Sleek Eye and Blush Palettes

Miscellaneous brands – Maybelline Color Tattoo, Revlon Lipstain, Max Factor lipfinity, Loreal Eyeshadow, Rimmel Eyeliner, etc.

Model’s Own and Barry M are one of those brands that excites me the most in Boots and Superdrug. Their glittery nail polishes are to die for! Barry M nail polishes were about £3-£5 each and Model’s Own were about £5 each.

That’s all I have for you :)

I have many things to be reviewed and please be patient with me LOL.

Thank you for reading.

La Maison Lancome

Today I have Lancome palette to show you guys. I knew the existence of this palette from Instagram and also this palette is Krisshop exclusive (I guess). They are no longer available I’m afraid, I’ve just get this not long ago because I have to troubled my cousin who lives in Singapore to get me this and waited till someone visit me in Sydney.

I believe the blush was available worldwide months ago? or maybe a year ago. I remembered saw this in Sydney sometime last year.

I LOVE Eiffel tower so much, why? I can’t explain it myself haha… So when I saw this I knew I must have it.  The palette is very pretty no doubt about it but the quality is kinda disappointing. All the colors are very sheer and not pigmented. And also the combination of the eyeshadow shades are not suitable for me..

Swatches of the eyeshadow:

 

Blush swatches:

I can’t capture the blush color when all three color blended because it is very sheer. The two light colors are shimmery (left and middle) while the darkest color is matte.

I will give this a miss, but I’m happy just to look at the palette :p

Thanks for reading

FOTD with Chanel Epatant and Urban Decay Naked Palette

 

Hello ladies!

I had this make up few days ago and I want to share this to you. Few days ago I took leave from my work and I enjoyed my “me” time alot! i went to Orchard with my iPad and was sitting in a cafe the whole afternoon. While sipping a cup of green tea and munching a chocolate muffin, I just kept on browsing on beauty blogs. Oh how I love reading lovely post from many bloggers :) I am in love with my  blogging activities now!

Anyway I just love my eye looks that day. In my opinion, the eyeshadow blended very well and it’s not too much. It made my eyes look bigger and my hubby loved my look that day! :) Here are the products I was using:

For my eye:

I was using Chanel Epatant as a base. To give shimmer on my middle lid, I took my Urban Decay Palette in Half Baked. I avoid to have a heavy smokey eye look, so I soften my upper eyeshadow with Urban Decay Naked. For my eye highlighter I am using Benefit Tattle Tale mixed with Urban Decay Sin.

For my inner lid, I was using Benefit Tattle Tale and swipe it on 1/3 of my under inner lid.

The eyeliner used was MAC Technakohl in black. I am using this on my whole upper eye lid and my outer bottom lid.

The mascara was Lancome Hypnôse.

Since I want to emphasize on my eye look, I choose Lancome Butterflies Fever (reviewed here) as my blush. I swept the pinkish and purplish shade on my cheek and topped it with the cream shade as my highlighter.

was on my lip. As usual, pink lip is not always my favorite but I think this one looks good on me :)

 

 

and here is the look:

Introducing Ellis Faas’ Signature Looks in 2012 Fashion Week

During the International Fashion Week 2012, ELLIS FAAS has created two new signature looks; that cements her reputation as “one of the most influential make up artists” of her generation.

ELLIS FAAS stamped her mark on this year’s Fashion Week as the make up sponsor for the shows of Mila Schön and Korean Designer Eudon Choi.

While the look for Mila Schön was fresh, the show for Eudon Choi featured dewy skin, highlighting its natural glow.

Fresh & Sophisticated

Mila Schön’s show revolved around “existentialism” and ELLIS FAAS ambassador Tiziana Raimondo created a look that was fresh.

Raimondosaid, “After having created a light, quasi-transparent skin with SkinVeil foundation, Concealer and Compact Powder, I added just a little shadow with Creamy Eyes E104 and E107.On the lips,I put the fierce red Creamy Lips L103 and to finish it off some lovely Mascara E401 on the lashes.”

Natural & Glowing

ELLIS FAAS sponsored the makeup for the show of Korean designer Eudon Choi, which highlighted fresh pale and dewy skin with natural freckles.

Less is definitely more, as ambassad or Adam de Cruz used Skin Veil Foundation to give a natural, wonderful glow to the skin. He said, “I used blusher S303 with a stipple brush and dabbed carefully on the apples of the cheeks, cheekbones and Bridge of nose and patted softly with my fingers to create freckles instead of ‘blush’.

And now, we can have a piece of Fashion Week in Singapore.

Recently launched earlier this year, the ELLIS FAAS Human Colours® collection looks to the human palette for inspiration. The colours that exist naturally in our bodies are complex and rich, but they are also universal, shared by each and every one of us. Based on this universal spectrum, ELLIS FAAS Human Colours® collection aims to complement all skin tones.

Apart from the powder, all of ELLIS FAAS Human Colours® collection makeups come in revolutionary pens, fit tidily into a streamlined, lightweight folder.
