Le Blush Crème de CHANEL in Revelation

Hello lovelies!

I can’t believe that it is August now and Fall collection has start hitting the shelves. Fall Collection (apart from Spring collection) is my most highly anticipated make up collection. Usually make up companies are releasing range of neutral and wearable eyeshadows. This year, Chanel releases a range of new cream blush – Le Blush Crème de CHANEL. It consist of 6 blush shade; destiny, presage, affinite, revelation, inspiration and fantastic. I believe this range of blush is a permanent collection except shade Presage and Fantastic.


The packaging:

Le Blush Crème de CHANEL has a similar packaging with Chanel eyeshadow quad. However this packaging is thinner and smaller. It is very lightweight and very convenient to be put in your make up bag. It doesn’t come with any brush/sponge.



Chanel Cream blush has a soft texture in the pan; but when it is applied on my cheek, surprisingly it feels powdery and doesn’t feel like cream. It doesn’t make my skin feel oily at all, it sets on like a powder. It is very easy to apply and it blends nicely on my skin.

Another good news for those of you who are sensitive to scent, this product  has no scent infused. Le Blush Crème de CHANEL can also be applied onto your lip. I like to wear this cream blush on my cheek after my foundation and before setting powder. In this way, Le Blush Crème de CHANEL lasts for 4-5 hours on me and it starts to fade. The lasting power is not the best but it is acceptable for me. The Beauty Look Book recommended Tom Ford Cream Foundation brush to apply this cream blush. I tried that method once and I agree with her that this works very well but it takes more time as I need to wait for my foundation to be fully sent onto my skin. So for my daily application, I usually use my ring ringer to apply the product. I like to layer this product twice on my cheek to get the shade I want. I feel that by adding one more layer onto my cheek makes the product blends more easily.







The look I did in this post is the same look I have posted in the post Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream. I did not use too many products for this look as I wanna create a minimal make up look for my weekend brunch last week. I am wearing Le Blush Crème de CHANEL in Revelation on both cheek and lip.

Guerlain Palette Meteorites – Radiant Pressed Powder, Blush, & Highlighter

Hello everyone,

I bought this palette from Sydney Duty Free which I believe is travel exclusive. They have a few items which are travel exclusive, it was so difficult for me to buy only one. I was tempted to buy them all but they all are quite expensive. It cost me around AUD135 for this palette :(


This palette consists of:

  • Face Powder 8g
  • Blush 4.2g
  • Highlighter 4g
  • Guerlain2

This palette comes with a small brush and a mirror. I thought this palette is very handy for traveling, it has everything from powder, blush and also highlighter.


Closer look of the inside, the powder is so pretty!!


 Swatches: (from the top) blush, powder, and highlighter.


In my opinion, this palette is just okay. Good to have but not a must. Even though, the SA told me the powder itself cost around AUD150, I still think this palette expensive.

Thanks for reading!

Kiehl’s Philosophy – Try Before You Buy

Try before you buy header


The company behind sampling continues to revolutionize the industry.

In our modern society, there are many experiences and things we take for granted in our hectic, daily lives that were birthed from the advancement of quiet pioneers in New York City history.

Did you know?

In 1633, the first public brewery in America was established by Peter Minuit at the Market (“Marckvelt”) field in Lower Manhattan.

The New York Post, established in 1803 by Alexander Hamilton, is the oldest running newspaper in the United States.

In 1894, the first motion picture was shown by Thomas Edison on Broadway.

Similarly, it is unknown to many that Kiehl’s, the 161-year-old skincare purveyor, holds a unique position as an early pioneer in customer service — which has not only been studied by Harvard Business School, but also has inspired the service models seen in some of today’s Fortune 500 companies. In today’s consumer culture, when purchasing skincare products, 76.8% of female consumers wish they had access to more expert advice and more samples

Dolce & Gabbana Animalier Quad in Dessert

Today I’ll be featuring a Dolce & Gabbana eyeshadow quad that I acquired from Saks few months ago. Thanks to Ruby from Miaka-MyLife for helping me to get this. This eyeshadow quad has a beautiful packaging that I can’t resist. The packaging looks so beautiful; the leopard prints are sexy and it’s Limited Edition. I believe this was released sometimes in 2012, but I still saw this few months ago so I did not think much and grab it immediately ;)




D & G animalier quad comes in a very unique and gorgeous packaging. Animalier Quad has a thicker packaging compared to other D&G eyeshadow quad and it comes with gorgeous leopard prints. It’s not prone to finger prints like the usual D&G eyeshadow quad. It comes in a black velvet pouch and the box is has a special leopard prints as well. I usually throw the paper box to save some space but I am keeping this one since it is very different from the usual box. This palette comes with two applicators.






Shade & Texture:

D & G Animalier Quad in Dessert consist of 4 neutral shades:

  • Matte broken white – I use this as a browbone highlight shade
  • Taupe with a subtle metallic sheen
  • Matte cocoa shade  - I rarely use this on its own because the shade is too yellow on my skin tone
  • Matte mahogany brown shade – I use this as a liner

All shades in this quad are wearable. The texture of the eyeshadows are unbelieveably creamy and smooth. I did not experience  any fall out during application. I love the pigmentation of the 3 matte shades in this quad; it is true to the pan in one layer of application . The other shade; taupe has a decent pigmentation but the shade will need two or three layers to get the shade true to the pan.


The swatches below are taken outdoor with indirect sunlight. I applied two layers of eyeshadow for the swatches below.






Final Thought:

D&G Animalier Quad in Dessert is one of my best make up acquisition! I dare to say this because of the “Limited Edition” tag and “Saks Exclusive” tag. The packaging is really gorgeous and the quality of the eyeshadow is really good! I just love the pigmentation and how creamy the eyeshadow is!

Suqqu Balancing Cheeks 01 Momozoe

Hi everyone,

Today, I have Suqqu Balancing Cheeks to show and tell. I had this quite a while, somehow I neglected this little treasure and found it again when I packed my cosmetics for my holiday.  This is my first ever Suqqu Blush, heard a good review and quality about Suqqu. However, Suqqu is not that easy to buy especially where I live in Sydney. My sister helped me to get this when she traveled to Japan.


When it comes to packaging, I like the light case but because the color is black, my finger prints are visible all over the case. It doesn’t concern me much tho :p




The color of the blush is very light, in order to get the color as shown below. I have to applied couple times. However it looks very natural and soft and also the brush that comes with the blush is very good and soft! According to few bloggers, it has the same quality with the blush brush in original size. To find more about Suqqu Blush Brush, you can read here.

In my opinion, I prefer blush which are pigmented. Maybe this shade is not the right one for me? I love to hear your opinion about Suqqu blush :D


Thanks for reading!
