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 😀

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.

Chanel Le Vernis in Malice Swatch

Hello all!

I finally decided to buy Chanel Malice when I saw this in Changi DFS few weeks ago. The price is $27-29 in Changi Airport DFS while it’s retailing at $37 in department store. I know the swatches of Malice is already revolving around the beauty blogosphere for a while. You might have seen the swatches in many beauty blogs but please don’t get bored because I am going to show you mine 😉

Malice’s formula is awesome. It’s very easy to apply. It’s not runny and not thick at all. It’s a pleasure of all Chanel polishes has the same great quality as this. Malice is a deep red. It can be looked very dark in indoor lighting; it looks almost black for me. In direct sunlight, you can see how beautiful the color is. Some dazzling deep red can be seen in between the dark color.

Final Thought:

This is an all year round color for me! The formula was flawless, it applies beautifully. What more can I say? I love Malice 🙂

Dior Grand Bal Nail Polish in Marilyn and Diva

Hello all,

Finally the swatch of Dior Grand Bal is up! Marilyn and Diva are the polishes that I picked from Dior Grand Bal collection. Marilyn was the first that I picked because red is my favorite nail polish shade. Then Diva caught my attention during Sephora 20% member sale. I couldn’t resist getting Diva thus here are my choices!

Dior Grand Bal packaging is very special. Just looking at the bottles could make me feel happy 😉 What makes me happy beside the wonderful packaging is that the brush of these polishes are thinner than the usual Dior brushes. It makes the application process much easier.

Marilyn

I guess the name Marilyn is very appropriate with the red shade. Marilyn reminds me of Marilyn Monroe; her sexiness, her attractiveness and her passion. Marilyn is a jelly red polish. The formula is just nice; not too runny and not too thick. It applies well on the first coat but it looks very thin. But on the 2nd coat, it looks flawless and just perfect.

Diva

Diva is a black creme polish with tiny gold glitters. The glitters spread evenly in the bottles. The application of Diva requires two coats to achieve full opacity. The glitters spreads evenly during the application too. However I was expecting that the glitters would look more obvious on the nails; just like what it looks like on the bottle. In real life, you can see the glitters slightly better than what’s captured here.

To make it more lively, I added one coat of Nothern Lights Holographic top coat in silver as swatched below.

Final Thought:

Dior Grand Bal polishes are certainly nice to have polishes because of its beautiful bottle. The formula does not disappoint and the brush helps the application works much easier than the usual Dior brushes. The colors are not unique, you can easily find something similar for these polishes especially Marilyn.

Thank you for reading.

My Picks for Dior Grand Bal + Diorific in Diorling Review

Hello dearest readers!

Dior Grand Bal collection is one of my favorite collection for this festive season. The packaging is just soo pretty and classy. I foresee that I would love this products even more after few years. I am a person who loves to take a look at my old product and admiring how pretty the color and the packaging is.

I picked few items from the collection. I picked two nail lacquers and a lipstick. Dior Nail Lacquer in Diva has caught my attention for its lovely gold shimmer and Marilyn has a very pretty red for Christmas season . I also picked Dior lipstick in Diorling, a perfect nude for the Christmas season.

Here are my picks for Dior Grand Bal collection:

Diorific in Diorlong Review:

The main thing that attracts me is only the packaging. Actually I know that I don’t need this lipstick but such a nice packaging is not something I can get every year. The packaging is just classy and would look amazing anytime I am using it.

Diorling is a pinkish nude lipstick with micro fine golden shimmer. It has satiny finish. The texture is fine; opaque in two coats and lasts for 4-5 hours with me. However I find it less moisturizing compared with other brands such as Chanel or Burberry. I like to use Diorling as a base lipstick color to top it up with a shimmery lipgloss.

I will try to share with you the swatch of Diva and Marilyn soon. Pardon me if it takes quite long to swatch those nail polish 🙂

 

So guys,

What is your pick for Dior holiday season?

Thank you

XOXO Meryl 🙂
