Dior has recently launched a mini collection “Dior Summer Mix” which consist of 4 pairs of nail polishes and cream blushes. The shades released looks very fun to be mix and match for summer. When a brand like Dior is releasing a new Limited Edition blush collection in a new formula, many beauty bloggers (including me :p) will go gaga over it! I picked up Capri out of the 4 shades as I love pink blushes more than corals
I don’t have many cream blushes in my stash. In fact, this is my 2nd tube of cream blush that I have. I personally prefer powder blush as I always use a setting powder after my foundation routine. But in times when I want to have a more popping blush shade, I like to use cream blush after my foundation, topped it with my setting powder and top it with a light powder blush. In this way, the blush will lasts longer.
Dior cream blush comes in a glass pot with CD logo on top of the cap. The packaging reminds me of Chanel Illusion d’Ombres. It’s quite heavy and it looks luxurious. When you open the blush cap, you can see the pop of color in the pot. It looks like a bubblegum macaroon to me. It screams “CUTE”!!
Diorblush cheek creme shades looks very striking in the pot, but you need to swatch it yourself to see that it is actually not as pigmented as what you see. In terms of texture, Diorblush cream feels a bit dry to me. It’s not too creamy and I find that this is suitable for ladies with oily skin. Ladies with oily skin need not to worry about their skin being more oily with Dior cream blush. I usually use two layers of this cream blush after my foundation. The first layer doesn’t look noticeable to me, so usually I will add another layer. This cream blush is very easy to blend, and you don’t need to worry that this blush looks too much on you. Just dab on lightly and add on more layer when you feel that it’s not enough.
As you can see in the swatch above, the swatches on the left side looks much more pigmented than the one on the right side. On the left side, I swatched on 3 layers while on the right side, I dabbed on a light two layers and I blend it together. Capri looks very pretty on the pan and when swatched.
Diorblush Cheek Creme is worth checking out! You shouldn’t be worried that this gives you too much color on your cheek or makes your skin oily
Thanks for reading.
I know I had this for a while, you can tell from the OB packaging which is limited edition for Spring 2013.
However, the blush refill itself its not limited edition as I’m aware of it. It was not easy at all to choose only one color, Shu Uemura have lots of beautiful shades to choose from. To be honest, my solely purpose was to get the cute packaging! I have a soft spot for everything cute, pink and limited edition (doh!).
I stepped out of my comfort zone this time, and settled for a bright pink blush. I tend to buy coral or peachy shade for my cheek color.
Packaging: tho it is very cute, I was hoping the packaging a bit bigger, easier to hold and open. If you have noticed in the picture below – there is one scratch from my nail when I tried to open it for the first time.
Color: It’s good to have a different color for you blush, and more importantly pigmented
Lastly, how it look on me – I applied very light of course, you can build up the color if you like more bright cheek
Have a good weekend everyone and thanks for reading as always!
Kiehl’s recently launched a new product to combat wrinkle and pore. This was launched in May and I have tried the products for more than a month. So I guess it’s enough for me to write down what I think about Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream.
Firstly, let me tell you briefly about my skin. For your information, I am currently 24 years old and I have a normal skin type. My T-zone can sometimes be oily but the rest of my face is usually non oily. Our skin starts to lose its elasticity at the age of early to mid twenties. So this product is not only for people who starts to have wrinkles but also to young people who also wants to combat wrinkles which has not shown yet.
Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream is packed in a jar in a simple designed packaging. Jar packaging is good for me as I can make sure that the products will be used entirely. Some people dislike jar packaging due to its hygienic reason. I guess it’s up to each person to judge on this.
The texture of Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream quite thick but it is non sticky. The eye cream has an even more thicker consistency than the face cream. Both face cream and eye cream has no scent, so this is suitable for people who dislike smell in their skin care product. The eye cream is very thick in texture, and I don’t use it on day time as I find it takes too long to absorb into my skin. The face cream sets onto my skin after 30 seconds; this is fairly quick so it’s great for my day cream.
My verdict after using it for 6 weeks:
This product shows its result after I used it approximately for 4-5 weeks. This product is not the most hydrating moisturizer I have tried but this cream suits my needs for day cream. It’s moisturising enough for my day time needs and it’s non sticky. I don’t see any result for my pore problem but it helps my skin to look hydrated most of the time.
Thank you for reading.

I finally got myself my first Chanel brush. I have been wanting to buy a Chanel brush but none of their brushes attracts me because they’re expensive and the hair does not feel as soft as I expect it to be. However when I heard that Chanel is releasing a kabuki brush and after reading the review from Ommorphia Beauty Bar , I decided to get this brush.
So how does Chanel Retractable Kabuki Brush feels?
This brush is a dome shaped brush with a very dense hair. It feels super soft; how should I say it? It is just very very soft. Is it comparable to the softness of Tom Ford brushes? Definitely yes. The hair is made of synthetic hair and it can be used for applying all over powder, blush and even helps to contour your face.
This brush is my first retractable brush which I can safely put in my make up bag. I don’t need to worry that the brush will get dirty or will change in shape because it is nicely protected by the brush cap. It is my go to touch up brush when I am not at home; I am using this to reapply my blush and bronzer. The density of this brush helps me to apply bronzer to sculpt my face. It also helps me to even blend my blush after reapplying it.
I have also washed my brush once. I did not take a picture of the brush afterwards. But I can tell you that the brush doesn’t change in shape and the hair does not shed after washing. Because of its density, it took about 12 hours to be completely dry.
Overall, I am madly in love with this brush for its softness and density. It’s just a pity that it comes in white colored hair, because I know eventually the color won’t look as white as what it looks like now. Nevertheless, I am still loving this brush a lot
