YSL Ombres de Jour Couture Palette

IMG_4980

I am still in the mood of exploring Spring items collection as they offers bright and wearable colors. However I notice that this Spring season, there are many brands that have launched their Spring collection with a twist. I personally think that YSL Palette Ombres De Jour is somewhat the colors I would expect from a Spring collection but with a little bold approach.

Palette Ombres du Jour comes in a beautiful pink glittery packaging. The eyeshadow format & texture follows the latest couture formula which was launch last year. The eyeshadows are generally smooth and have silky texture. Pigmentation is nice with most colors pops on the first swatch except the pink one. I find that the pink is a little bit sheerer than the other shades.

Top Left: Light taupe with no glitters/shimmers, leaning towards satiny finish

Top Right: Milky white with shimmers

Bottom Left: Medium brown with gold shimmers

Bottom Right: Light frosty pink

Middle: Matte black with pink glitters

I would say that generally the shades in this palette has good quality – they’re soft, smooth and buttery. However I faced some problems when I applied the black shade. I noticed some fallouts although I have used some primers. And the black shade is not as smooth as the rest of the shades too.

This is a look I did with this palette. I applied the light taupe all over my lid. Then I apply the pink shade on my 3/4 on my lid – I kept layering the shades to create a more popping pink. With a pointed brush, I applied the black shade starting from my outer corner (near the lash line) and blend the colors up. After blending, I re-added the colors until I get the look I desired.

Overall, YSL Ombres de Jour Couture Palette is an interesting palette where it showcase the beauty of spring shades without making it look too boring. I love that YSL added a matte black with pink glitters – it makes this palette a lovely spring palette to me. Generally the textures are fine – buttery and silky smooth and it has decent pigmentation too. Packaging is certainly one of the reason why I bought this product – just look at how pretty is that glittery casing! I would say that this palette is not a must have – but if you’ve been collecting YSL Limited Edition make up, this is one that you don’t want to miss! :)

Tom Ford Spring 2015 Swatches and EOTD of Raw Jade

IMG_4897 IMG_4901

If there’s a brand that always makes me excited over their launches, Tom Ford is definitely one of them! For Spring 2015, Tom Ford has launched some rather unusual colors. The brand focuses on bold eyeshades rather than the usual pastels shades that we would see in most brands.

Tom Ford has three limited edition eye color duos for this Spring;

  • Raw Jade
  • Crushed Indigo
  • Ripe Plum

Each palette would consist of two shades; an opaline shade that’s created uniquely for each palette and a darker metallic shade. Raw Jade is a khaki green and paired with a mint shimmery finish. Crushed Indigo is a combination of dark blue with shimmer and a metallic lavender shade. Ripe Plum is a combination between dark brown and a light metallic pink.

Without any doubt, Tom Ford eyeshadow delivers excellent pigmentation quality. This can be seen from my swatches above. It’s very easy to get the colors pop – no need too much layering. The eyeshadows can also be worn dry and wet. I’ve the swatches below for both wet and dry. When it is swatched wet, the metallic shades pops better than when it is swatched dry.

IMG_4894 IMG_4895

 

I’ve tried both wet and dry application to my eyelids; and for the sake of efficiency, I would prefer to wear it dry.

Here’s some closer look of Raw Jade when it is swatched both dry and wet over indirect sunlight.

For this spring collection, Tom Ford also released two new mascaras, Teal Intense and Black Plum.

“Tom Ford’s mascara has specially designed brush, full and dense, allows lash filling powders in a creamy formula to last throughout the day without clumping or crumbling, amplifying the eyes’ dramatic impact”

I’ve got Teal Intense to match with my Raw Jade, and so far this is one of the mascara that doesn’t smudge on me! Thumbs up!

Alongside with this collection, Tom Ford also releases 4 Lip Shines that which will be out earlier than the rest of the collection. This will arrive in February in Singapore.

IMG_4900 IMG_4716 IMG_4899

 

In the EOTD below, I am using a green pencil eyeliner and smudge it out. I also used a primer under neath to make sure that the color stays longer. Then I applied the deep green shade on my outer corner and build the colors by layering. I applied the metallic mint green shade on my inner corner to accentuate the look. As you can see, when both colors are layered together, it creates a new shade of green – it comes out as a lovely mid metallic green.

IMG_0094 IMG_0098

 

Other than the excellent pigmentation, another thing that impressed me the most is the staying power. This eyeshadow stays perfectly for at least 6 hours with me. I did notice the color fades a little by the 9th hour, but it is totally forgivable as I was spending my time outdoor most of the time on that day.

Let me give you some introduction to the collection,

  • BRAVE is part of Make Up Store winter collections. As the name suggests, BRAVE is meant for us who loves daring look with bold and dark colors. Most of the items mentioned here are part of BRAVE collections.

Now let’s take a look at the eyeshadows and glitters,

in the picture below, I have Strong and Crow eyeshadow, and also glitter in Courageous. Strong is a pink eyeshadow leaning towards purple with shimmers. I am using Strong as both eyeshadow and blush. The size of the products makes it easy for me to swirl my cheek brush and apply it on my cheek. Strong is part of Brave collection. Another item from the BRAVE collection is the glitter in courageous. Courageous is a bronzy red glitters to add the dazzle to your look.

Crow is part of NORDIC collection. I like this color for it’s versatility and it’s easy to work with. Crow is described as slate grey shade. I would personally say that it’s a mixture of grey and blue. Pigmentation of Crow is decent and easy to blend with. This color is easy to apply and can be worn on it’s own, I have used this as an eyeliner color too.

The eyeshadows and the glitter is retailing at $27 each.

I also received two lip products to show you. In the picture below, you can see MATT 406. It has matte finish and the color is a red wine. One thing that attracts me from this is that although it provides matte finish, it doesn’t make my lip feels dry. It’s moisturising and the color stays for long hours. Matt contains avocado oil which gives a slightly oily surface that protects your lips against the environment and keeps your lips hydrated. This matte lipstick is recommended for you who has dry and sensitive skin. MATT 406 is retailing for S$29.

Below here I also have a lip gloss and a nail polish that matches very well. Gritty lipgloss and Elizabeth Nail Polish is part of BRAVE collections. Gritty is a blushing shade of deep coral pink with gorgeous multicolored shimmers as you can see in the picture above. This lipgloss matches perfectly with the nail polish in Elizabeth. Gritty is retailing for S$35 and Elizabeth is retailing for S$22.

Chanel Reverie Parisienne for Spring 2015 – Tisse Fantasie & Blush Camelia Rose

IMG_4602

Hi lovelies!!

Today I decided to post my thoughts on Chanel Spring 2015 – Reverie Parisienne. I am sure many of you would have read the reviews and looked at the products in real life, but let me share my excitement and to show how happy I am to be able to purchase these :)

IMG_4600

Firstly I picked Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose. This blush caught my attention at the first sight. Just look at how pretty the sculpting of the camelia in the pan, I simply can’t resist getting this and make it part of my collection.

There are two pink tones in this blush; one is darker and the other is lighter. The swatch below was taken at home with indirect sunlight, with the darker shade on the left side and the lighter shade in the middle. The shade on the right side the shade when both shades are mixed. I detect a very very slight shimmer in it but it was not captured very well in this picture.

Another item that I picked unexpectedly during my trip to Chanel store is this Les 4 Ombres in Tisse Fantasie. I didn’t plan to get any les 4 ombres but the light khaki shade is simply pretty that I just had to caved in.

IMG_4597

 

IMG_4599

Chanel les 4 Ombres in Tisse Fantasie turns out lovely when it is swatched on my arms. I really like how it glides on softly on my arms and the colors shows up nicely. The pigmentation was decent for all these shades, it’s not overly pigmented nor too sheer.

  • Top left – Coral shade with satiny finish
  • Top Right – a shimmery white shade. It’s a little too white for me that I have to think of how to work on this color on my eyes without destroying the whole look on me.
  • Bottom Left – a shimmery khaki green with golden shimmer. This one gotta be my favorite shade from the palette for its beautiful shimmers and versatility.
  • Bottom right – a dark brown with slight red tone and golden shimmers.

IMG_4598

Overall I think the quality of Tisse Fantasie is quite balanced, the pigmentation comes up nicely on my eye lid. I didn’t experience any fallout for most colors but for the khaki shade, I did see some fallouts. Below is my FOTD look with Tisse Fantasie and Chanel Camelia Blush.
