NARS Fairy’s Kiss Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hello!

I am back with an eyeshadow palette from NARS. This is my first palette from NARS and I fell in love with this palette from the first time I saw this. The colors are so natural, easy to use and these are suitable for my everyday look.

I’ve been wanting to get myself a NARS palette but most of the palette released consist of blush/bronzer which I have owned. Finally I saw this palette is released and I quickly grab it :) This palette is selling for $60 in Singapore and AUD 65 (or $69) in Australia. If you’re in Australia, you can get NARS products in Mecca.

NARS Fairy’s Kiss Eyeshadow palette consists of 6 shades :

  • Monosque: Shimmering soft pink (limited edition)
  • Kalahari (right side): shimmery Rosy caramel
  • Brousse (right side): Black violet
  • Tokyo: Lavender
  • Brumes (left side): Matte charcoal
  • Pandora (right side): Matte black

NARS Fairy’s Kiss palette has a good balance of matte and shimmery shades. Monosque, Kalahari and Tokyo would be a great base shade. Pandora is a true matte black that can also be used as eyeliner.

All these 6 eyeshadows have great pigmentation. The texture is not the softest but it’s buttery and swatches very nicely. However it doesn’t feel as soft as some of other eyeshadows I own. There’s a slight fallout especially for the darker shades. To prevent fallout, I will use my finger to press the eyeshadow into my eyelid and blend it with a blending brush.

From these 6 eyeshadow shades, My favorite has got to be Monosque; it has a very nice soft baby pink shade . Moreover this is a limited edition :) My second favorite from the palette is Kalahari; I love that rosy caramel shade that match perfectly for my skintone. I believe Kalahari will look good on almost every skintone. The pigmentation and the texture of Kalahari is the best in this palette.

 Overall, I am loving the shade of this eyeshadow palette. The colors are versatile and they’re nicely pigmented. The texture of the eyeshadow is not the softest but I am satisfied with my purchase.

 

Do you own NARS Fairy’s Kiss eyeshadow palette or other NARS palette? What do you think of them?

Guerlain Madame Rougit Blush 4 Couleurs

Hi everyone!

It has been a while since the last time I written a post. If you follow us on Instagram, you probably aware I have been on holiday to Europe few months ago. Last day in Paris, while waiting on my flight back home, I discovered Guerlain Madame Rougit in the airport. Though the price is not as cheap as in US (I assume) this was too beautiful to pass. Without trying or whatsoever, I bought this blush.

Guerlain1

With all the packing and others, somehow this has been forgotten by me. The blush come in black velvet pouch (not picture) and little blush which I’ve just realised also not in the picture (will post in Instagram :p)

Guerlain2

When I did swatch the color individually, I’m quite disappointed as some of the colors are not pigmented enough. However, I applied all the colors with blush brush and applied it on my cheeks. Ta-da, colors are well-pigmented with hint of coral which is my favourite. Texture also very smooth and easy to blend.

Avenue Marceau is pink-purple themed palette. The four shades here can be worn both dry and wet. The texture is very smooth and it is very nicely pigmented especially when it is applied wet.

  • Top Left: a champagne pink with silver shimmer. The shimmer is not overpouring, the pink is still the main shade.
  • Top Right: a pale soft pink. The shade is suitable for highlighting
  • Bottom Left: a gold with satiny finish
  • Bottom Right: Satiny purple

Let’s take a look at the swatch.

The eyeshadow was swatched dry. Pigmentation is beautiful! The pink shade is my favorite.

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Sophie

IMG_5476

Hello everyone,

As you know, I am such a big fan of Illamasqua powder blush. Previously I have reviewed Illamasqua blush in Hussy, and today I have Sophie which has different finish compared to Hussy.

IMG_5475

 

IMG_5477Sophie is a peachy shade with golden shimmer. On the pan, somehow it reminds me of Nars Orgasm blush. Both of them have the rosy peachy pink – rosy shade and the shimmers too. However after comparing these two, I realized that Nars Orgasm is more shimmery and it looks more rosy; whereas Sophe emphasized more on the peachy pink shade rather than the rosy shade.

Sophie has a beautiful texture; it is nicely pigmented and it feels very smooth. The swatch is true to pan on the first swatch. The peachy pink shade is suitable for many skintones and the shimmer in this blush is just nice to give you that beautiful glow without making you look like a disco ball. It is very easy to build up the color and the texture is not chalky.

In the swatches below, you can see the difference when the blush is blended and when it is swatched. When it is blended, it looks natural with the glow from the shimmer. I absolutely adore how beautiful is the peachy pink glow of this blush.

IMG_5478

 

In the picture below, I also did a comparison swatch between Illamasqua Sophie and Hussy. They are quite similar in color, but hussy has more color pigments compared to Sophie.

IMG_5480

 

 

Overall, I think Illamasqua blushes are worth every cents I have paid. I bought this for £ 18 in the UK which is approximately SGD36 (based on current exchange rate) and the quality is superb. I love the shade and I love the glow this blush provides.

I really can’t wait till Illamasqua opened their first counter in Singapore very soon!

 

Here are some other Illamasqua products I have reviewed previously:

Illamasqua Neutral Eye Palette

Illamasqua Blush in Hussy

 

I’d like to know what you think of Illamasqua blushes if you have tried it before. Any thoughts?

 

 

Thank you for reading!
