Hello lovelies,

Today I have a gorgeous palette from Giorgio Armani to talk about. This palette is part of Giorgio Armani’s fall 2013 collection – Kaleidoscope. I picked Mystic Blue ; it’s a palette consisting of 3 eyeshadows and a blush. I must say that all the eyeshadow shades in Giorgio Armani Kaleidoscope collection are amazing. I had a hard time choosing which palette to get and in the end I decided to get Mystic Blue :)

The eyeshadow consists of 3 shades in blue-purplish tone. The shade on the left is the darkest which looks a dark purple-greyish shade. The middle shade looks like a soft purple in the pan but it is actually much nicer than what it looks like on the pan as it has a glamorous duo chrome shade. It looks like a light blue shade when swatches and at the same time it also contains a purple shimmer on it. I really like the shade as the shimmer doesn’t make me look like a disco ball. The shade on the right is my favorite, it’s a mid toned blue with metallic sheen.

These three shades really impressed me. The pigmentation is great; the color shows up in one layer without primer. I also love how smooth this eyeshadow feel. It’s very nice to swatch these shades as it is very easy to play with.

Now onto the blush. I would describe this blush as a peachy pink shade with golden shimmer and This blush actually reminds me of Nars Deep Throat and Nars Orgasm. This shade would be an ideal shade between Nars Deep Throat and Nars Orgasm.  The blush has great pigmentation; so I need to make sure that I dont overdabbed my brush on this. It’s better to build up the color rather than to have too much product in one swipe.

Overall, I am very much in love with this palette as it has 3 gorgeous eyeshadow shade ad a blush. The eyeshadow shades are very unique and unusual. While the shade of the blush is nothing unusual, but it is the kind of color which really appeals to me. The pigmentation and the texture of both the blush and the eyeshadow are  very nicely pigmented and soft. I have no reason to dislike this palette :) a great one to pick, I’d say!

Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in Mystere

IMG_5418

 

Hi all,

I am back again with a Chanel 2013 fall eyeshadow quad review. Sorry I have been away for a while. I was going for an overseas trip and I will try to post about it soon :) Life has been going up and down for me lately. I’ve had great moments this year  such as holidays and precious time with my family. However there has also bad moments happened this year but I am glad that everything is under control now. Blogging has kinda been fun for me lately with so many new products to try on. So please bear with me if I am late in posting reviews. Enough with the ramble, let’s go into the review (:

Chanel fall 2013 quad has hit the store for about more than a month and I am sure many of you have gone swatching this quad in the store. Mystere is a khaki green shade quads. I love deep khaki green on my eyes as it creates a very flattering smokey eye without making it look too harsh.

IMG_5419

Chanel mystere consists of 4 shades:

  • Top left – duo chrome dark khaki with a gold shimmer
  • Top right – a milky white shade. Perfect for highlighting
  • Bottom Left – sandy grey shade with
  • silver
  • Bottom right – khaki and greyish matte shade

I am quite impressed with the quality of this eyeshadow. It is very smooth and buttery. What impressed me the most is the pigmentation; it is nicely pigmented. The shades come out perfectly in just one swipe!

As you can see in the swatch above, the pigmentation is pretty amazing! Apart from that, I don’t see any fall out too. It is very easy to pick up the color in this eyeshadow quad and blending the shades is really easy. This shade is easily becoming my fave eyeshadow quad and I am putting this quad on my everyday make up bag. It is perfect for my after work make up :)

Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer – Stress Minimizing Daily Hydrator Review

IMG_5327

 

There’s always when I feel tired and stress because of many things; it could be work or some personal issues. When I reach home after a long day at work, I always relax myself with good music, light a candle and just lie down on my bed and surf the net. My skin care on such day s are very important as I need to make sure the stress doesn’t cause my skin to look dull on the next day. Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer is created for people who have a tired day or a stressful day and Kiehl’s claim that this product will work to limit the stress signal, protect the skin barrier from future reactions, and calm & hydrate the skin.

So I have been using this on and off for almost 2 months. I’ve used this product on my face on the days when I feel tired and prefer to have a short skincare regime.

Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer comes in a bottle with a pump. This is a great packaging especially for people who concerns a lot on hygienic issues relating to packaging. Our hands are dirty and therefore every time we dab our finger on the pot, there might be some bacteria left on the pot. So with this pumping packaging, we could better avoid any bacteria to get into the bottle as we don’t need to touch the product directly with our fingers.

IMG_5328

Kiehl’s skin rescuer feels quite sticky and rich. It’s a cream based product which you can use for moisturizer or a make up base. Although this product feels rich and quite sticky, you don’t need to worry that this will make your skin feel oily. This product is infused with Squalane which is a natural oil extracted from olives and it highly compatible with the natural oils in skin. Another good news is that this product contains no scent at all. It acts as a great moisturizer which hydrates my skin very well.

On a tiring and stressful day, I prefer to have a short skin care regime. On days like that, I apply this product on my face directly after using toner. It instantly makes me feel refreshed and upon going to sleep, I’ll add 1 more layer of this product to make sure my skin is hydrated well in air conditioned room.

 

Final Thought:

If you’re looking for a product for your tiring and stressful day, this could be a good idea! In those days, I’m looking for one product that will keeps me hydrated the whole night and make me feel refreshed again in the morning. This is an ideal choice for those days :)

Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 – 01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow Review

IMG_5393

 

Hello everyone!

Today I have a product from Lunasol to talk about in this post. So I was going out with few of my friends I meet through instagram and few of them are talking about how they love this Lunasol Beige Beige eyeshadow palette. My friends told me how this eyeshadow could never go wrong for daily make up. And well after that conversation and after swatching and observing the palette in Lunasol counter, I bought this Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 which includes #01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow and EX03 lipstick palette. This palette is retailing at $71 in Singapore.

So firstly I will talk about the #01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow Quad

IMG_5394

IMG_5395

 

#01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow quad consist of 4 neutral eyeshadow shades. There are 2 shades that I find similar in this palette (top right and bottom left). Both shades looks very similar in the pan but when swatched, both are not the same. They complement the shade very well to each other.

  • Top left: Shimmery  light beige for highlight 
  • Top right: creamy beige
  • Bottom Left: Creamy sandy
  • Bottom Right: creamy mocha

Honestly I am not a huge fan of Lunasol eyeshadow as it is often too sheer and less pigmented. As for this #01 Beige Beige eyeshadow quad, The texture is super smooth and creamy but I must admit that not all of these 4 eyeshadows are greatly pigmented. All 4 shades in this palette is equally creamy and smooth. I can see that there’s a slight fall out from the eyeshadows here but wearing UD primer helps in reducing the fall out a lot.

What I really love from this palette is that you will never go wrong with the shades. The 4 shades complements each other very well. I like to use the shades in the top left and I combine it with the shade in the bottom left to be used as  a base color. The mocha is a great shade to create a soft smokey look. The pigmentation is not the best but it is good enough to build the color that I want for a natural look. In this case the pigmentation helps me to create a really natural look for office make up or brunch date when I prefer to have a minimal eye make up. This eyeshadow will never make you look too much.

And here’s a quick look onto EX03 lipstick palette:

IMG_5398

 

Final thought:

Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 consists of 2 products; 01 Beige Beige Eyeshadow and EX03 Lipstick Palette . This kit is suitable for ladies who wish to purchase eyeshadow kit for their daily usage especially for day look. The eyeshadow and the lipstick kit provides a very nice shade selection to create a very natural “no makeup” make up look. Although fallout is inevitable, you can always dab your brush to the eyeshadow lightly and apply it onto your eyelid and build the shade in few layers. Overall this Skin Modeling Eyes Kit 2013 has meet my expectation in terms of quality.
